THE OPEN-AIR BREAKFAST. WHY NOT USE THE GARDEN? [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 20 February 1914
THE OPEN-AIR BREAKFAST. WI:IY NOT USE THE GARDEN? ' Most people who. have travelled abroad treasure a recollection of meals enjoyed out of doors. The dinner on a. shady terrace, the refreshment ano the band in a garden, the cup of coffee on the boulevard linger pleasantly in their nmemory as a complete change from home habits. The English climate is usually believ ed, (remarks a London paper) to be the chief obstacle that stands in the way of any general adoption of the Conti nental open-air meal, though the true reason is more likely to be found in a British disinclination for new paths. There aro, 'of course, some whose al fresco meal, to be attractive, must be taken in public, with a certain amount of ceremony, and possibly at consider able expense But for every oio of these there are at least a hundred who can appreciate the charms of privacy and simplicity. For these last, pro vided they possess a garden, the ques tion presents no diffieulty. Even the small garden that most su'...
OVER DEVELOPMENT OF MUSCLES. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 20 February 1914
OVER DEVELOPMENT OF . MUSCLES. In all systems of physical training the only aim and object is to maintain health. I cannot agrees with the methods whose aim is to pile up lumps of muscles on every part of the body, a doctor explains. An advertitomenntt showing a man with a biceps l;ke a 1 g of mutton oni hi, arm is enough to do terinine me to have nothing to do with thatC system. Those muscles are ab solutely useless unles you wan tco go on the music hall stage as a strong lianl. or \vish to cocnver yourself in!to a human carthorse. The strain put on the heart in the process of acquir ,uig thoso disfiguring hunks about ,hi body counteracts all the good that t..o exercise might haeo done. The im portant organs of the body-the heart the lungs, the liver, and the kidneys derive no benefit from abnormal miusou lar development. Many trainers have a good working knoswlcdge ot Iuseu lar development and how to acquire it, but they know nothing about lthe lhear.' They cannot use a stetho sco...
WOMEN'S INTERESTS [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 20 February 1914
WOMEN'S INTERESTS (3y "Arubrusino.") One of the most useful things any woman can possess in her wardrobe is a basquo bodice or lace coatee mounted on uninon, which a ylys gives such a soft effect. To this may be added two sets of collars and cuffs, one of black velvet, with which she should wear a silk flower at the waist, and the other of white satin, hemstitched, to be filn ished with a bunch of lilies of the val ley. Ncck wear is important, and at pre sent many delightful little items can be bought so cheaply' that no one need look dowdy at the throat. Indeed .never I think in fashion's varied career have so many dainties been ready for inexpensive, and immediate purchase on .the part of the woman who wants to look smart. Much old-fashioned jewellery can be turned to other uses than that for swhich it was originally intended; and our. mid-Victorian grandparents would pirobably be rather scandalised at the :.i'recu)erent way ill which we destroy and remodel some of their most cher...

RANCID BUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 20 February 1914
RANCID BUTTER. Bacteria of certain kinds are un doubtedly the most offensive agents in making butter rancid, but it may also be caused by oxidation, due to the ac tion of light and air. Any kind of un cleanliness in the dairy w:ill at onoa tend to produce rancidity in the pro duce. The usb of impure water for washing up the dairy utensils, failure to wash the butter in the grain suffi ciently, the use of milk from dirty, cows, or milk which contains colostrum as yielded by fresbly-oalved cows, all these causes help to make butter rancid. No doubt the colllnonest cause cf r:ncidity is failure to wash sufliciently the butter in the grain, The caseinous matter, or buttermilk, if left in the butter ii excessive quantities, will quickly set up decomposition and impart a ve'ry strong flavour to the produce. It can easily be discovered whether the wash ing of butter has been prqlperly ple formed or not; all that is necessary is to press gently, b)ut firmly, on a plc':' of the ,butter with ...

LATE SUPPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 20 February 1914
LATE SUPPERS. Late suppers are a common caleasp of insomnia, especially that form of it in which people fall into a heavy sleep, only to wake with a start an hour or so later. Digestion conies almost to a dead stop during sleep, so that suf ficient time should lie allowed for the last meal to be disposed of before the hour of retiring. This interval should he two hours at least, which often means that half past eight is, as a rule, late enough for the evening meal. In any case, the food which is taken then ought to be of light naturo, and not include pork, cold meat, or any other article of diet which is slow of digestion..

WOOL PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 20 February 1914
WOOL PROSPECTS. With the general trade of the world active, and overy prospect of remain ing so, there should be a .strong con sumptive demand for wool during the ?oming year. Labor. in the Old World is well employed at better wages the world's wool requirements continue to increase, while there will be a great shortago of wool in manufacturing centres before the end of the present calendar year, and only moderate sup plies for 1914. Wool will be admitted into the United States of Amerioa duity free, and it wil not be very long be fore that great wool-using nation will require a great proportion of Austra lia's clip. Owing to great financial stringency in the U.S.A., it is quite possiblo that they will not take a great amount of wool during the com nug season; but they are so. short of stooks that they must purchase some, and later on they will requiro a large quantity.
