CURING A KICKING COW. [Newspaper Article] — The Branxton Advocate: Greta and Rothbury Recorder — 4 March 1916

CUR1NC A KICKING COW. The method adopted by a correspon- dent effectually cured the wildest of cows from kicking — a consummation much desired by all milkers. His remedy as set out is as follows: — 'Place cow at end of shed with her near side against the wall, and put her head in a bill bow if you have one ; then tie a stout pole a little longer than the cow along her flank by fixing one end close up against her in front to the manger; then tie a piece of chain or rope from the other end of pole to the roof (in the same manner as you separate horses) ; then fix piece of rope to wall, and after setting the cow's off hind foot back, hitch the rope round the pole and pull up tightly enough to prevent her getting her foot forward. By this method the wildest cow is easily milked, and as she gets quieter the rope can be slackened until the pole can be done away with entirely. I have used this method until quite close to calving, and have not had any bad results from doing so. I like this ...

WHEN MONARCH'S MOUNTS HAVE STUMBLED. [Newspaper Article] — The Branxton Advocate: Greta and Rothbury Recorder — 4 March 1916

WHEN MONARCH'S MOUNTS HAVE STUMBLED. Curiously enough, considering the care that is always taken in the selec- tion of their mounts, monarchs fre- quently come to grief when riding. Napoleon's a favourite charger, Mar engo, whose skeleton is preserved in   the museum of the Royal United Ser- vice Institution, threw his master on two occasions; once so heavily that the Emperor remained unconscious for nearly an hour. King George's ancestor, William the Third, met his death from a fall from his horse, as most schoolboy's are aware. The animal, a one-eyed steed named Sorrel, stumbled over a mole-hill with fatal results to its rider. Afterwards the Jacobites, who, of course, hated King William, used to toast 'Master One-Eye (that being the horse) and the Little Gentleman in Velvet (that being the mole).' William I., too, though not un- seated, came by his death through his horse stumbling over some hot ashes   at the siege of Mantes. He was carried to Rouen, su...

HOUSEKEEPER. [Newspaper Article] — The Branxton Advocate: Greta and Rothbury Recorder — 4 March 1916

HOUSEKEEPER. Laundry tubs should always be made quite clean after they have been used. Wooden tubs are best preserved by leaving a little cold water standing in them ; zinc tubs may be cleaned with   ammonia, and must be thoroughly dried to prevent rust. After polishing the brass in the usual   way, rub it over with a soft cloth   dipped in vaseline, and then polish it with a dry duster. In this way brass will not tarnish quickly, no matter how bad the weather may be, and the extra   trouble is small.   When choosing butter see that it is a good pale yellow colour — not a bright golden or a light cream. It should be firm and dry, and, when cut, it should break a little roughly at the edges. If hard-boiled eggs are to be used for making dishes or for a garnish, they should be plunged into cold water when taken from the hot water, to prevent, if possible, discolouration of the yolks. A good polish for oilcloth can be mad...

FARM AND HELD ORIGINAL ARTICLES. THE VALUE OF HUMUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Branxton Advocate: Greta and Rothbury Recorder — 4 March 1916

FARM AND HELD ORIGINAL ARTICLES (By F.C.S.) THE VALUE OF HUMUS Humus is so thoroughly dissemin-   ated in the soil that its presence is noticeable only in the dark colour it gives when in large amounts, but black soil may sometimes be due to its mineral content rather than humus. Humus is black or brown in colour, re- sembling charcoal in its lightness and porosity and in its destiuctibility by fire. It is highly absorbent of gases and moisture, in the latter case swelling eight to fourteen times its dry volume. In chemical composition it varies with the composition of the plant from which derived. In a soil humus is usually combined with lime and other elements as hum- ates, and is then not soluble in water, but is dissolved by a solution of caustic   alkali and of carbonate of soda. When soils are weak in lime it forms free humic acid, and this acid condition   must be corrected by the use of lime. The unavailability of' free humic acid is on...

CHILD'S PARTY FROCK AND COAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Branxton Advocate: Greta and Rothbury Recorder — 4 March 1916

CHILD'S PARTY FROCK AND COAT. The party frock and coat, illustrated, for a little girl of four or five years of age, are simple models that any mother with a knowledge of needlework can easily cut out and make up in the home work-room. The frock, 'A,' is suitable for any pretty flowered washing silk or for No. 1939. velveteen, and is quite untrimmed, save for a border of silk at the neck and elbows, and for an independent sash of wide, soft silk or satin. The one-piece pattern of the frock repre- sents half the garment, and the sim- plicity of the pattern will be observed by a glance at the diagram, which in- dicates the pattern laid on two yards of 36-40-inch material, opened out and folded in half, the pattern being cut out in duplicate. The frock fastens on the shoulders with snap fasteners and is trimmed with silk buttons and simu- lated buttonholes from shoulders to elbows. The two pattern pieces are seamed together at the sides and   under-arms, and the sleeves ar...

Women and Their Needs LADIES' COLUMN. FASHION AND THINGS FEMININE. [Copyright.] A DAINTY DRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Branxton Advocate: Greta and Rothbury Recorder — 4 March 1916

Women and Their Needs LADIES' COLUMN. FASHION AND THINGS FEM- ININE. By IDA MELLER. [Copyright.] A DAINTY DRESS. With the near approach of semi-even- ing dress for family gathering, or house-visits to old friends, becomes an essential item of the wardrobe of many a woman, and, without doubt, choice will rest to a great extent on black and neutral colours this year. The silk, satin, or velvet skirt, worn with a blouse of ninon, is an excellent choice for a quiet dinner dress, the blouse mounted on taffetas of its own or a contrasting colour, and the slip trimmed, possibly, with lace or ribbon. A good idea for a simple and pretty dress is illustrated. The skirt and blouse might be of the same material, crepe de chine or voile, for instance,   or the skirt might be of soft taffetas, satin or velveteen, and the blouse of ninon. Were the latter black, the slip be- neath might be of white silk or satin, trimmed with a wide band of lace across the chest, or with a band of cher...

POULTRY. MAIZE AS FEED. A Successful Experiment. [Newspaper Article] — The Branxton Advocate: Greta and Rothbury Recorder — 4 March 1916

POULTRY. MAIZE AS FEED. A Successful Experiment. If the recent scarcity of poultry foods has resulted in breaking down, some of the prejudice against maize     as a feed for poultry, it will not have been without its beneficial effect upon the poultry industry and the country generally. That there has been an undue amount of prejudice against maize feeding will be admitted by a large number of poultry keepers. During the recent scarcity hundreds of poultry keepers have supplied their hens, with maize almost exclusively as the evening feed, and without any apparent   ill effect, and many admit having secured better results than when feed- ing wheat only. Were They Too Fat To Lay?   A case illustrative of this point is   quoted by the Poultry Expert. A cor- respondent, who had been feeding his hens on maize for seven or eight   months, and who was obtaining 300   eggs daily from 365 hens, was al...

A WOMAN'S HATE. PUBLISHED BY SPECIAL ARRANGEMENT. [Copyright.] CHAPTER XVIII.-Continued. [Newspaper Article] — The Branxton Advocate: Greta and Rothbury Recorder — 4 March 1916

A WOMAN'S HATE PUBLISHED BY SPECIAL ARRANGEMENT By A. RENDEL POPE Author of 'Redcairn's Redemption,' 'The Wages of Sin.' etc etc   [Copyright.] CHAPTER XVIII— Continued. 'Even my father cannot achieve everything. Even he cannot force a     jury to give a verdict in face of con- demnatory evidence. You decide — and, through you, Miss Raven. You will   go to her, as I ask you?'   'Strange as it may seem, I will,' he answered. 'I do not- agree with   you that she can mould the issue one way or the other. You vastly exag- gerate the importance of her evidence.   But I do know that she is actuated by   enmity towards your cousin, and it is quite possible that I may be able to induce another frame of mind. I will run the risk of returning to London without permission and of doing my paper a very bad turn otherwise, in   order to make such amends as I can. If I fail, you mus...
