SOCIETY'S WEDDING SECRETS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 2 May 1902
SOCIETY'S WEDDING SECRETS. ' I was walking down a fashionable West-end thoroughfare the other day,' writes an occasional contributor, when I observed in one of the fashionable jeweller's shop3 the following legend : WEDDING PRESENTS MAY BE HIRED. 'As in duty bound I immediately pro ceeded to probe its secrets.' ?You have read the inscription rigM,' replied the manager of the establishment, when, a few minutes later, I had entered the place and begun my examination. ' We claim for our business that it sup plies a long.felt want. You know as w.fll as I do that when a young couple decide to take the step that binds them together till death doth part, it is eminently de sirable for them to make a good show in the matter of wedding presents. The fact is equally notorious that nowadays there is a tendency among friends and acquaintances to grow mean in connection with the presentation of these gifts, and that where expensive presents are still given — principally by near relatives of brid...

INSECT POWDER PLANT. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 2 May 1902
INSEd POWDEB PLANT. Persian Daisy, or Pyrethrum Eoseum when dried and pulverised, is a powerful agent for driving away insects. It can be grown from seeds like any other fever few, and the blooms can be cut and dried at home with muoh less expense than the powder can be bought. The Beedlings may occupy prominent borders in the #ower garden or fill entire beds ; also the same culture that suits vegetables will make the daisy yield abundantly o£ the. useful bloomt. It loses ite pungency after a time, so that renewals are neces sary every now and again in pwceB ire queuted by ants or other iuBects. The. advantage of this plant over somq other insecticides is that it is strictly harmless to human beings, being entirely free from poibonous properties The powder is pungent aad agreeable to the smell. Housekflepars use it after cleaning, scat tering it in crevices along shelves and in drawers of kitchen ana store rooms, and it can also be used wherever insects are to ba found, Dusted on be...
Farm and Garden ORIGINAL ARTICLES. SHEEP BREEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 2 May 1902
Farm and Garden OBIG1NAL ARTICLES. SHEEP BBEED1NG. WjflRHE Shropshire brood is probably jjWt the most popular for croBBing with (jB^r the grade Merino fer early lambs, producing also a very saleable animal for mutton purposes. The fleece is slightly coarser frian that of the South down and shorter than tho Leicester and rather oily. The mutton is regardell as second only to the Southdown. The breed iB prolific nnd the ewes are. good mothers. In breeding sheep the first considera tion is a knowledge of the market demand intended to mset. l( as a breeder of fine stock to Bupply the market for breeders, cbased at reasonable prices. But if one desires to raise fat lambs for market (and that is probably the beat plan), then the ordinary native sheep will make a satis factory foundation ; but it is important to uae a good mutton ram of known family. Breeding sheep is a simple matter, but caring for them is different. They need the closest watchfulness, and in going among sheep one should ...
AUSTRALIAN INSECT EATING BIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 2 May 1902
AUSTE4.LIAN INSE IT- EATING BIEDS. The plenitude of insect life in / Australia, fostered by a bright and sunny climate, would speedily become intoler able but for the provision made by Nature in the the form of myriadB of insecti vorous birds, whose pretence is always welcome to the farmer and the orchardist, affording some degree of uncertainty that the rapidly ripening crops' will not be seriously injured by the incessant at tacks of these insidiouB and almost in visible foes. In New South Wales many of the more useful kinds ot birds migrate during the winter months to the northern, or semi-tropical regions of Australia, returning at the beginning of Bpring. Not a few possess a beautiful plumage, and several, contrary to popular belief, have a considerable amount of melodious power. Amongst the best known birds are several species of night- jarB, swifts, and swallows The night-jars are gener ally met with after dusk, when they are extremely active, capturing considerable numbers' ...

HOW TO SUCCEED IN SAUCE-MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 2 May 1902
HOW TO SfJCCEED IN SAUCE MAKING. To an intelligent cook the art of com pounding sauces is one of the most interesting branches of cookery. She recognises that, if well chosen and correctly prepared, or otherwise, they give character and stamp a dinner as the handiwork of a superior or inferior cook. It is popularly supposed that an ordi nary good cook cannot excel in this particular branch. This is a mistake, and as often as not iB the result of ignorance, laziness, or unwillingness to teach and learn on the part of both st rosB and maid. They are both con tent with p. few lumpy, too thick or too thin, semi-raw soncoctions dignified by tbe titles of melted butter, white, brown, or caper sauce, which frequently is scraped off and left on the plates. Hints to Ebiiembbr. 1. Have all ingredients and utensila ready. - 2. Good butter is essential ; or, if that is too expensive, good beef-dripping may be used for family sauces. 3. Usually half a pint of sauce is ciuffl cient for sixpersonB...
