ORIGIN OF THE HONEYMOON AND OTHER MA[?]GE CUSTOMS [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 8 January 1914

V.Jfc.i.rcv is not surprisTngj^^wh:" in the name of common-sense—t;o we are inclined to a sit—should the bridal pair accept, as they often do, the loan of a friend's house, where, cut off from social and domestic duties, they no doubt exper ience the woes of litter boredom, for even billing and cooing must occasion ally pall? Many there are who have cautiously allowed that the honey moon spent under the most favorable conditions has its drawbacks. Yet, common-sense notwithstanding, it is an institution that will probably last till the end ol" time. We are disposed to question why the custom ever ex isted, and the reason is not far to seek if we only know where to search for it. The honeymoon is, in fact, a sur vival from the far-off days when ma: riage was by capture, and a hurried flight was necess...

GROW THE LAMBS WELL. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 8 January 1914

- GROW THE LAMBS WELL. No single part of successful sheep husbandry is more vital to the finan cial welfare of the flock-owner than the growing of the lamb crop to ma turity. Every sheep man recognises the fact that quality 13 the predomin ant factor in the determination of market value of llock products. There is little difficulty in securing top mar ket prices when the goods can be de livered. When a 1 nib is dropped healthy and robust, and sucking fi deep-milking ewe, there is little trouble encountered Lo bring"'' him to early market maturity. But the hitch comes, when adverse' conditions are confronted, and prudent judgment must be exercised to eliminate the obstacle. Flock-owners generally recognise the importance of properly growing the la.mli crop to promo:e rapid gain and uniformity. The market to-day, Troin every view-point, is discrimina ting in favor of early maturity and uniform quality. The mutton-maker must be alert to the demand of the market if lie hopes to produce ...

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 8 January 1914

KITCHEN WRINKLES. When cleaning knives damp them before rubbing on the board, as they produce a better polish and clean 'much quicker. Handkerchiefs that have becomc yellow can be made snow-white by soaking them in pipeclay and water for twenty-four hours. Boil the corks before bottling pick les, etc. While hot they can be press ed into the bottles, and when cold they seal them tightly. To make linen easier to write on when marking it dip the piece to bo marked in cold starch, and the pen will write without scratching. To impart a delicate odor to linen, saturate a piece of cotton or blotting paper with oil of lavendar and place it among the various articles. When blowing out a candle, blow upwards instead of over the light, and the candle will not gutter, but will burn evenly next time. A little bag of sulphur suspended in a bird cage is not only healthy for the bird, but keeps away the parasites with which some birds are infested. "When cooking greens a small piece of butter added...

HUMUS. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 8 January 1914

HUMUS. Aim at keeping up your humus sup ply (vegetable matter), as this is the first, thing a plant looks for. It must be in the soil to enable the three es sentials to plant life—'phosphoric acid, potash ami nitrogen—to thoroughly perform their functions. Where the iiumus is absent the three very neces sary essentials named would be of ab solutely no value during a hot, dry spell. Even in a favorable season, with moisture forthcoming, the relief would only be temporary, and a dry pinch will pull it up at once. Not so where the humus is incorporated In the soil, for, apart from its functions as moisture conserver—which alone is invaluable to plant life—it sets up certain bacterial action which makes more available any plant food that is in the soil, in an insoluble form, and the soil is belter able, where this vegetable matter is in abundance, to respond to any application of commer cial fertilisers. Always aim at keep ing up the "body" of your land by adding green manure crops. The...

FOR THE FARMER. BURNT LIME v. GROUND LIMESTONE. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 8 January 1914

foe; the farmer. BURNT LIME v, GROUND LIMESTONE. When lime is burned In a kiln the limestone rock or carbonate undergoes decomposition. Carbonic acid is thrown off, and the oxide or quick lime remains. When this is slaked It falls to a very fine powder, which is soluble in water, and becomes evenly distributed through the soil, and more thoroughly mixed with it than any ground insoluble material can pos sibly be. Herein is constituted its su periority over the ground rock. It is something like dissolving a cupful of sugar in a pint of water and mixing thai, solution in a bucket of water. Every particle of water present in the bucket, would be more or less sweet ened by the sugar. It would be im possible to distribute any powder, however finely ground, in the same way. The oxide lias great alliniiy for atmospheric carbonic acid, and com bines with it to reproduce carbonate of lime. This process is a fortunate reversion for the farmer, because it becomes practically insoluDle in water...

I Cow-testing enables one to find out tbe poorest cows, those not pay ing for their foed, so that they may be got rid of. .

WHERE IT IS ALWAYS CHRISTMASTIME. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 8 January 1914

WHERE IT IS ALWAYS CHRISTMASTIME. ; know a little girl who tries To pass her gladness all around; She keeps a glad look in her eyes, Her laughter has a cheerful sound; 'Tis time to say good-bye to gloom When she comes dancing through the room. Without complaint she does her part In causing hate to disappear; I fancy that in her glad heart It must be Christmas all the year. I know a -boy"who does not try To cheat the boys with -whom he plays; When he is called he does not Bigh, • But always willingly obeys. His limbs are strong, his eyes are bright, ' He does not fear the dark at night, .Nor mock the weak and poor, nor show Contempt for those whose gifts are few; And so he makes it seem as though 'Twere Christmastime the whole year through. —S. E. Kiser.

MARRYING RECORDS. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 8 January 1914

MARRYING RECORDS. | Women, as a rule, are more given ! to the marrying habit than men, I though no woman haa rcached the world's marrying record made by George Vitzoff, the notorious bigam ist, whose marriages totalled over 100. In one week he went through eight ceremonies. Almost as strange a case was that' ol a Russian woman condemned to Siberia not long ago. She had been married to twenty husbands and had treated them all alike, running away from each in turn and taking all their portable property with hor. She was a most attractive woman, and highly educated. A woman named Schmeyer, of a ennsylvania, was sent to prison not long ago for bigamy. Though she was only twenty-seven years old, she iiad married twelve men in ten years. Her only comment in court waB that she lined them all. A Boer woman named De Beers, whose sixth husband died recently, is the proud mother and stepmother of forty-nine children, while her grand children number 270. Four of her six husbands were widowers, ...

The little volume was discovered in the tent with ' Captain Scott, and the members ol the search party, considering the lines a most appropriate epitaph, carved them on the cross which stands on Observation Hill.
