rwri~-» THE DAIRY. A CALLING THAT 13 NOT OVER CROWDED. Dairy farming may veil be called a profession.

A WEED ERADTCATOR. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 20 March 1914

A WEED ERADTCATOR. ! One of the greatest, thorns in the ' side of fanners is the noxious weed ; cur;;c. Chief among the pests is the blackberry and C'alifornian thistle. ! The Government recognising the boon ! it would l;c if a cheap specific was placed upon the market, have offered substantial bonuses to the inventor ! of any system that would suceessful ! ly eradicate these pests. Naturally the Agricultural Department have ! stressed the fact that a cure must be permanent. Various specifics and methods have been tried . and found wanting. Under the direction of the Agricultural Department a prepara tion known as Long's Noxious Weed Destroyer has been put to a test at Parnell, near Auckland, and promises particularly well. A picce of land, which is complete4y overrun with blackberry has been treated under the direction of the Agricultural De partment.

Strange Living Jewels. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 20 March 1914

Strange Living Jewels. * To increase the splendour of their toilettes, Creole beauties make use of tho Cucuyos, a largo species oi firefly, found in the tropical forestr of South America. Strange jewels i which must be fed, which must b<! bathed twice a day, and must be incessantly taken care of to p:"j I vent them from dying. .. ' The Indians catch these insects b;. balancing hot coals in the air, at the end of a stick, to attract them, which proves that the light which these insects diffuse is to at tract. Once in the hands of the women, the Cucuyous are shut up in little cages of very fine wire, and fed on fragments of sugar-cane. When the Mexican ladies wish to adorn them selves with these living diamonds, they place them in little bags of light tulle, which they arrange with taste on their skirts. There is another way of mounting tho Cucuyos. They pass a pin, without hurting them, under the thorax, and stick this pin in their hair. The refinement of elegunct consists...

Where Sound Cannot be Heard. A MYSTERY OF THIS SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 20 March 1914

Where Sound Cannot be Heard. T 1 A MYSTERY OF THIS SKA.. It is a singular nnd somewhat disturbing fact that thero frequently exists at son, in tho urea covcrod by a fog, what might be described as ft zone of silence ; that is, a belt of spaco in which sound cannot bo heard. It is tho only thing of all others most dreaded by mariners. Thore may be danger ahead—say, a deadly rock lying right in the vessel's course. The light that marks It, whether from lighthouse or light ship, is blanketed by the fog, but the crew at least .expect to hear tho warning blast of tho foghorn. No such blast reaches thc-m. The sound is completely lost in the silenco! zone, and the first intimation they have of the danger is when the ves sel crashes on. the rock. To this cause undoubtedly may bo i attributed some of the great disas j tors at sea which have puzzled many I shore people. There was the caso. of tho Stella, for > instance, which ran full tilt on the ;Cd3quet Kocksy oft' Alderney. The Stella w...

' , ' A coin which is frequently used for the purpose of cheating at spin ning coins is an ordinary penny filed round the edge so that ' the rim is at a slight angle.

It will be obvious that when such a coin is spun upon its edge it will always fall On one side—rviz., the side whose edge pre sents the smallest circumference.

THE FARM. MAKING MONEY OUT OF COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 27 March 1914

THE FARM. -4 MAKING MONEY OUT OF COWS. There axe ten rules for making money out of cows and ttaay all begin with "milk good cow»." To put the case in a nutshell, or rather to skim the cream from the whole matter, let us admit that there are, nny, seven fundamental principles of successful dairying, about as follows :— 1. Weed out the poor cows by means of the scales and the Bab cock lest. 2. Feed the good cows plenty of clean, choice stuff as close to a balanced ration as possible. 3. Eliminate competition by pro ducing a better product than the other fellow and demanding a good price for It. 4. Head the herd with n. high class, purebred sire. r>. Raising the promising calves from the best calves only. 6. Develop a market for your surplus bull calves nnd other- stock. 7. Feed the mind of the man be hind the cow.

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 27 March 1914

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. When making' blue-water for clothes add. a little salt to it. This, dis tributes the colour evenly and pre vents "patches." Celery may be freshened by being left overnight in a solution of salt anil water. To make cabbage digestible, vrhen hulf boiled pour off the water and place in fresh boiling water. One teaspoonful of vinegar is a substitute for an egg, and makes a cake light in which dripping has been used instead of butter. A little soot rubbed on to a greasy stove after frying potatoes or fish will make shorter work afterwards of the business of polish ing, and will economise the black lead. While paint can' be kept in good condition if whiting is mixed to a stilT paste with warm water and used instead of soap. Ilinse off with clear water and dry with a duster or leather. Brown leather travelling-bags, or any other brown leather goods, may be beautifully polished by rubbing them well with the inside of a ba nana skin, and then polishing with a soft dry cloth....

Ladies' Column. A Dainty Teacloth. MAKE ONE FOR THE BAZAAR. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 27 March 1914

Ladies' Column. . 1 A Dainty Teacloth. MAKE ONE F011 THE BAZAAR. A new idea for a dainty teucloth is always wflromo, and in the sketch our artist illustrates a par ticularly pretty suggestion that may be easily carried out. In size the cloth should be a yard square, and the material is cut into curves at the edges and trim med with a broad frill of lace. This frill is headed with a very uarrow silver braid arranged in a tiny loop between each curve. A pale blue satin applique, out lined with some ot the same narrow silver braid ornaments encli corner of the cloth, and the same design in rather a larger size appears in the centre. Diagram A shows the shape in which the satin should be cut out, and for tho corners it should mea sure about five inches across, and for tho centre about seven. In the large sketch the cloth • is shown folded up, and only one corner of it is visible ; but in Diagram B it is illustrated laid out quite flat, so that the whole design may be seen.

Ameri can, were oncc praising their- re spective railroads—for an American will praise his railroads, abroad, though at home it's usually a dif ferent story. "Well, the Englishman.said :— " 'Our express trains go . so fast that the telegraph poles along .the lino look like a high board fence.' " 'Our rapides,' said 11 ip French man, 'go so .fast that, the stations along the line seem continuous, like a city block.' "The American puffed at his cigar thoughtfully.

LABOR'S FIGHTING POLICY. MR. FISHER'S TOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 27 March 1914

LABOR'S FIGHTING POLICY. MR. FISHER'S TOUR. Liberalism should score off the speeches which Mr. Fisher, as Leader of the Opposition, is delivering in the course of his four-thousand mile tour. These speeches show that, in spite of certain bellicose harangues of the rank and file, official Labor has no stomach for early battle. "There must be no double dissolution," exclaims Mr, Fisher, and he denounces the proposed appeal to the Governor-General as a ridiculous impertinence. Mr. Fisher Rives his reasons for assuming that, when approached by Mr. Cook, the Governor will decline to send Senators to the country. The two test bills which the Senate declined to pass last session, and which will be resubmitted to it at a comparatively early date are, Mr. Fisher contends, too trivial to justify a double dissolution. With Mr. Hughes he tosses them con temptuously aside as having no practical bearing on any live issue, and as being mere test measures introduced for party purposes, in, what Mr....

Nothing but credit is due to the local pastor and members of the congregation for the manner in which arrangements were not only made, but also carried out. Lunch was daily provided by the ladies to cater for the bodily wants of the numerous delegates and guests. On Wednesday preceding the open ing of the convention the pastors and teachers of the Eastern District arrived for special conference, to consider the welfare of the parochial schools which are being conducted by the synod.
