CUSHIONS TO HARMONISE MODERN FASHIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

CUSHIONS TO HARMONISE MODERN FASHIONS. Nothing gives quite the look of com fort to a well-furnished- room that well chosen cushions do. Each cushion should be made with a distinct view to service in some particular chair, in. some particular corner of some par ticular room. That such cushions are sometimes so beautiful in themselves, so wonderful in color and tojie that they do fit in with a dozen different schemes of inte rior decorating, is to their credit. But; they should always be made to suit their particular environment. Cushions, like everything else, follow the fashions, and. the present fashions are a joy, so far as cushions are con cerned. A room furnished in mahogany is a good room for the Chinese cushion. If such a room has a Chinese rug and walls hung in blue or yellow to boot, so much the tetter. All the- Chinese embroideries harmonise with- each other. So any old pieces of Chinese embroidery can be made into cushio^ If you have not a room with a. Chinese rug in which...

RENOVATING LEATHER VIRTUE OF SHOE POLISH. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

RENOVATING LEATHER VIRTUE OF SHOE POLISH. Regardless- of statements to the contrary, leather is not really hard to clean, especially when the cleaning is gone about in a proper manner. In the past few years leather has grown'more and more popular. There are leather chests, leather chairs, leather couches, leather screens, leather table covers, etc., until nearly every room in the house has some important piece of lea ther in it. Some of the most beautiful books are bound in leather, and if in constant use the calf or morocco soon becomes worn. To remedy this, use equal quantities of white of egg and water beaten together. Apply with a very soft brush oi' piece of flannel, and when thoroughly dry, opilsli with a fresh piece of the flannel. This treatment can be given when ever the book shows signs of wear, and then repeated as often as necessary. Fine leather furniture requires con siderable attention. Mission chairs and davenports upholstered with leather should be treated with a mi...

CLEANING FABRICS USE OF MAGNESIA [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

CkEANINGT FABRICS;; USE -OF MAGNESIA Fine, lace that caimot be or ought riot to be- washed may be cleaned by rubbing: "a Quantity* of magnesia on it then laying it away for a while in blue tissue paper. If it is much soiled, keep it iii the paper for a week or more. Then shake out the magnesia; and the lace will be soft and clean and none of its beauty marred. After each wearing of white silk gloves rub them with a block of mag nesia, and they will not need wash ing for a long time. White canvas shoes can be kept clean in the same way. Whenever the shoes are worn wipe them ,off with a clean cloth, then apply the mag nesia before putting them awa3r. The next time they are to be worn dust off the magnesia, and they will be fresh and clean. . Little white crochet collar pins can be kept clean the. same way. The soiled collar of an unwashable silk waist may be much freshened by applying magnesia overnight, and the longer it remains on it the better the result. . After a trial, the pract...

Injuring the Crop [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

/ Injuring the Crop . A* Jeparit, in the Goulburn Valley, at Werribee, as well as in a score or other districts in the State, much loss has been this year experienced by farmers and .fruitgrowers through hailstorms. Here and there floods have done considerable damage, while valuable crops have been already de stroyed by fire, and the number is bound to be increased. It is cruelly ; discouraging to see the work of a year dissipated in a few minutes or hours; yet against all these possible sources of loss the farmer can, in a m.easure, protect himself. . Insurance, companies are in existence to enable him to do so, and numbers of Vic torian farmers, in their business wis dom, insure. In districts where hail storms are fairly common the prac tice should be general. Where fires are likely to occur (and in what wheat-growing district are they not?) insurance in one form or another is almost a necessity. The farmer can provide it by going to the expense of ploughing substantial fire-break...

Grain-growing Profits [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

Grain-growing" Profits At the Wagga Experiment Farm, in New South Wales, accurate accounts are kept of all the costs of production in wheat and barley growing. Neces sarily, at such an institution the out lay is on a heavier scale than it would be on a private farm. In the demon stration area are 377 acres, divided into four paddocks, three of which are devoted to wheat and barley for gTain and one to Zealand wheat for hay. The profit in 1912 was £2/0/6 per acre where the grain was sold at an enhanced price as graded seed, and f 1/0/11 per acre where the grain j was cleared at milling rates. The j gross return was £1462/14/6, and the j expenditure (at average local rates) £699/10/9. To indicate how the ex penditure was made up, one paddock of 27 acres, on which Marshall's No. 2 wheat was grown, may be quoted in detail. Ploughing was charged at the rate of 4/3 per acre, harrowing (twice) at 1/, drilling at 1/6, harvest ing at 3/, grading at -2d. per bushel, and wear and tear on machi...

The Season [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

The Season Notwithstanding that the wheat crop matured later than usual this season, harvesting operations are well forward. Better stripping weather could hardly have been desired, so far as the wheat belt is concerned, than that of the past four weeks. With one or two exceptions, the tempera tures have not been high, but warm enough to enable work to begin early and continue late, and cool enough to get the most out of the teams. Dis appointing returns have been obtained in parts of the newer Mallee, and also in older districts, from unfallowed paddocks. Where the cultivation was thorough the averages have been good, in some cases remarkably so, and there is still reason to believe that the record output for Victoria will this year be gathered. New wheat is ar riving daily at the seaboard, and as yet complaints of delays are not gen eral. Because the quantities to be hauled are so large, and delays are in evitable, it is to be hoped that adequate precautions are being taken to pro...
