POTTING BUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 26 January 1914
POTTING BUTTER, A practical correspondent, in reply tc: an enquiry, thus describes the meth·ods he has found succcssful:--"A vessel intended for keeping butter should be deep, with a mouth not exceedingly 10 inohes in width. Butter made foi keeping should be churned from ripen ed cream. The temperature on the day of churning should be as low as possible, and ·if water can be obtained! at 50 deg. for washing, so much thu better. After at least three wash ings, during which the butter is rooked gently to prevent its aggregation, it should be brined and subsequently placed in a trough to drain and dry. If a butter box is provided for coohlng, so much the better, inasmuch as for keeping the butter should be quite firm before salting and working on the but ter workeir The salt should be ground almost as fine a-s flour, having first been thoroughly dried. It is then distributed on the butter, after the roller has been passed over it, at tlhe rate of three-quarters of an ounce to the pound...
Household Hints [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 26 January 1914
Household Hints To remove dust from ridges on the door panels, use a soft, dry nail brusii. The Kitchen Table: If your kitchen table is not a good color, dip a halfia lemon in dry whiting and rub the table with this the way of the grain. Leave for about five minutes, ' then scrub and well rinse, and you will be delighted with the result. To Clean Stone Steps: The commen method of cleaning them with heartli stone or caked whiting not only gives them a smeary appearance, but washes off with a shower of rain. The .fol lowing preparation not only looks bet ter, but in the long run saves labor. Twice a week is sufficient fOr whiten ing, and the remaining days washing the steps.--Take a gallon of water and color a deep blue with stone blue. Boil in it 1lb of white size, dissolve tlb of whiting and three cakes of nipe-clay and stir well. Wash the steps with this solution in a light quick manner, and finish with water in the usual way.

CROSS-LEGGED HABIT. PERSONS WHO SIT CARELESSLY. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 26 January 1914
CROSS-bLEGGED HABIT. PERSONS WHO SIT CARELESSLY. 1'ully 80 per cent. of travellers by tramway car and omnibus sit cross legged. That is the opinion of a cor respondent who has taken particular notice of his fellow passengers. The cross-legged habit when you sit down is provocative of grave harm to the body. Indeed,? in time, a Lon don doctor who told "The Daily Mlir ror," it produces v~ricoso veins if the person regularly adopts this and nc other attitude. "The objection I see to the habit," he said, "is that the return flow cf blood from the leg is stopped at the knee, the result being that the veins in the leg swell up. "All the weight is thrown upon one side of the body, and the under leg 'goes to sleep' owing to the pres sure put on the sciatic nerve. Tihe body should be equally balanced. "There is another danger I ought to point out. If you sit cross-legged you become lop-sided. '"Personally I never do this. I a?ways let the legs rest limply-stretch ed out is just as good. The ...

PIGS AS BAROMETRS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 26 January 1914
PIGS AS BAROFWIETRS. Probably the last thing that one would expecot to indicate changes in the weather is a pig's tail. owever, according to the skipper of a Nor wegian sailing ship, who usually has a porker or two on board, one could scarcely have a more reliable barom etor When a weather disturbance is coming 'on, the tails of the pigs, usually kinky, str'aighten out aunt their ears droop. With the barometer reading between 29.90 and 30 the tails begin to forecast approach of a trough of low pressure. When the readiag gets below 29.50 the pigs seek cover, and thle storm is pretty sure to burst within five hours. But a high baro meter puts a; beautiful twist in the tails, ad the ears stand jauntily stiff "ud with a trifle of a cant forward. The suocessful man in any business is the one who can and will make use Of the experience of others-who has the courage to discard his own errors end adopt the trutha discovered by athers.
TREATMENT OF COMPLEX ORES. A NEW DISCOVERY. BEALIBA, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 26 January 1914
TREATMENT OF COMPLEX ORES, A NEW DISCOVERY. BEEALIA, Saturday. About two years ago a small party of Melbourne gentlemen purchased the tailings heaps from Foeu's Reef. Burke's Flat, near Bealiba, At the time of purchase the e?lum at Burke's Flat was turned down by cyanide experts as being too complex to treat by the cyanide process. MIr William Agabau, a cyanide expert, took charge of the operatione, and after erecting an expeneive plant sand epending a large sum of money, found that it was too costly to ge't the gold by a cyanide process. Cer tain portions of the heap contain d i as high as 10 per cent. copper. M: Agahau then went on experiment ing with a view of finding a cheap method of extracting the gold. After some 12 months, in which time over £1000 was spent, he made the dis covery that by adding certain chemicals to the water and allowing them to come in contact with the elum, all complax matters were de stroyed and the gold cleaned and made amenable to amalgamation.

BEALIBA MINING. BEALIBA, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 26 January 1914
BEALIBA MINING,. BEALIBA, Saturday. Ths builk trial Jots taken from the various faces at 'the Bealiba Alluvial have been crushed at the Govern ment battery, Dunolly. The return obtained, while highly eatisfaetory, is by no means a fair test of values, as the crushing of the material was anything but satisfactory owing to the large percentage of slum an& slimes the material contained. These ai~ to be assayed, and it is ex pected that ;be return from them will augment the values by at least half an ounce per fathom.

ADVANTAGES OF CLIPPING HORSES. FirPt --The natural process of m$I:"! ting or shedaing the hair is a draft on the v'idity of the animals.
