A LAKE OF SOAP. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 27 February 1914
A LAKE OF SOAP. One of Nature's nmarvels is .to be seen in. tihe north-east corner of the State of Washington. It is a lake which bears thVe name of Soip Lake, and is three miles in length by one mile in breadth. Thei water in the lake tastes like a mixture of soap and salt, and its peouliar properties are such that when the water is heated, no soap is required for a bath, for as soon as the water colimes into contact withl the natural oil of the skin, it is gently rubbed, it forms a beautiful lather. The only drawback is that when ap plied to the head, one's hair is apt to turn from its natural color to a dusty red, if not washed with fresh water. In other words, it bleaches, the soda in the water no. dloult Jbeing the cause of this. 'rThe Soap lake is well-known through out America on account of its wonder ful healing properties. Indeed, it is assorted that its waters provide a. cure for all the ills the flesh is heir to. Rhcuma Lism, skin diseases, stomach and blood disorders--al...

THE AUNT OF EDGAR POE. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 27 February 1914
THE AUNT OF EDGAR POE. Stories of heroic devotion In the mothers and wives of celebrated men are comnmon more than half the great men of the world have been the sons of impassioned and self-forget ting mothers. But the story of the Jeep affection of Mrs. Clemm, the aunt and mother-in-law of Poe, is touching, with a deeper and rarer .uality still, The life of Edgar Poe is', in any case, one of the most neart-breaking in history; but what ever fragment of happiness fitfully 'itered into it came through this Mrs. Clemm, whom he met when, af ter knocking ineffectually with his "verses at the door of editor after editor, hie was on the verge of star ration. Mrs. Clemnm was herself nearly equally poor, and had in ad dition a beautiful but fatally deli cate daughter, Virginia, to support. Pjut she nies a woman all heart, all pity. She realised at:oncc the,whole pirofundity of Poe's misfortune, and look him into her care froml that mo ment. O POE'S MAnRRIAGE. .The story is given exquisitely...

CLANCY OF THE OVERFLOW. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 27 February 1914
CLANCY OF THE OVERFLOW. The following vigorous and atmos pheric poem appeared originally, Er Wit, in an Australian newspaper. I had written him a letter Which I had, for want of better Knowledge, sent to where I met him, o)own the Lauchlan, years ago. He was shearing when 1 knew him, So I sent the letter to him, Just "on spec" addressed as follows) 'Clancy of the Overflow.' And an answer came directed :n a writing unexpected, (Which I think the samne was written With a thumb-nail dipped in tar). 'Twas his shearing-mate who wrote 1t 'And verbatim I will quote it: "Clancy's gone to Queensland droving And we don't know where he are." In my wild erratic fancy Visions came to me of Clancy Gone a-droving "down - the Cooper" Where the Western di'overs go. As the stock are slowly stringing; Clancy rides behind themn singing, C For a drover's life has pleasures That the townsfolk never know.v And the bushi hath friends to neet him, And their kindly voices greet him In the murmur of the breez...
THE PIG A GRAZING ANIMAL. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 27 February 1914
iHE PIG A GRAZING ANIMAlL. "'. The toft' closely penning of pigs (ex cept while topping up) is a mistake. In a state of nature the pig is a grazing animal:. For breeding and growing pigs. a' grass, outrun is 'profitable. Admitting that pigs must be fed differently, from other stook, wheir housed, yet grass is still.a natural food to .them, even as it is to horses.and cows: Pigs graze as close. to the grund as sheep. It is sometimes statedi that pasture deterior ates under cows; but whether this be so or not, pigs benefit pasturage, and rapidly improve poor, quality grass. Even the very youngest pigs running w itlh the mother iwill graze a little, but should -be given some other food as Vell: ' Shad&. and shelter are neces sary. Sunburn is to be guaided against. 'Even with ·larger pigs, a sudden change from dull to sunny tietther 'during the 'hotter portion or the year means sunburn,. When grass is.plentiful; 'store pigs of all ages can ie :run .on it 'cheaply, and need but v...
BENDOC ROAD. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 27 February 1914
BENDOC ROAD At the council meeting Ors Hutchi son and Richardson put in a claim on behalf of the Bendoc road. Cr Hutchison moved that the Coun try Roads Board be asked to take over the road. Three fourths of the popula tion of the riding resided on it. It would not be necessary to spend a large sum on it in a short time. Cr Richardson,. who seconded the mo tion, thought it should be the main road. It was the shortest and best route ob. tainable to the border being only 78 miles to Bombala. Or Watt was sorry to oppose the mo tionas the council had decided on another route. It would be impossible to take them both over and the Bendoc road would be hilly and expensive. Cr G. Nixon thought that if the Country Roads BIard took over this road they had better ask them to take over the whole council. There would be no possible chance of financing it. He believed they would have to take over the road to Nowa Nowa. The president said it was a matter everybody was interested in. Theyahad submi...

SHEEP AND WOOL [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 27 February 1914
SHEEP AND WOOL The most profitable element i, mixed, faruiing is sheep breeding, and'the three souqes of profit connected with it are -wool, fat lambs and mutton,.: In rais. ing fat lambs for market, h* ever, it must be borne in mind that...the best voolled class is not the best fattening class. The lighter woolled varieties, such as the Shropshire, Southdown, Dorset Horn or Loicester are more suit able. The aim of every sheepowner who wishes to get good results 'sbould be to tind out the most suitable class for his country, and keep as far as possible to that. ibis will count a great deal in the get up of the clip at shearing time. Always keep the best sheep, as goo,d sheep will-not cost any more to keep than the inferior; Never overstock, be. cause partial starvation at any time of the year affects the growth of the wool, More could be done in the fat lamb in lustry by the cultivation of peas for topping up the lambs. They can be produced just at the time when the earl ier distric...
