About the Weather. WHAT THE METEOROLOGIST . SAYS. The phenomenal conditions of rain fall since the beginning of the year, and the prospects of still further heavy falls, will make the following figures of interest : - In the Western districts, Mount Hope shows a fall of 1106 points since the 1st of January, Mogil fol lowing with 1031 points, and YYent worth 979 points.

Margarine. QUEENSLAND RESTRICTIONS. The manufacture and sale of mar garine is very much on the increase in Australia.

THE HOMELY ONION. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911
THE HOMELY ONION. We don't make nearly enough use of onions. This homely, but useful vegetable, is exceedingly cheap just now-"a drug in the market," we hear-while ordinary vegetables seem to be spoiled by the incessant rain, for supplies are decidedly short. So why not use the onion? "There are more ways of killing a dog than choking him with cream," so there are other ways of cooking an onion besides frying it in slices in a pan, and serving the mess with a tough, leathery steak. Boiled onions go well with either boiled or roast mut ton, and if put into salted boiling water, which is changed as soon as the onions, (which should be chosen all about the same size, and rather small), come to the boil, the disagree able odour will be almost impercep tible, and the boiled onions served with well made Sauce Hollandaise (alias melted butter) will not leave a lingering trace behind 011 the breath. Baked onions are sometimes cooked with the joint. Then onion soup is extremely tasty, made o...
Women's Affairs Summer Cookery. THE CASSEROLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911
Women's Affairs (By " THE WIFE ") Summer Cookery. THE CASSEROLE. New ideas in the kitchen are usual ly long in taking root, but when a good notion does take hold, it is won derful to see the difference it makes -lightening labour or bringing a much-needed variety into the daily bill of fare. A glance round the well stocked shelves of any of our lead ing ironmongery departments \vill of ten be quite a revelation to a woman who has not for some time been tak ing any thought about her kitchen and its utensils. For the benefit of readers of this column, I recently took "the glance round" aforesaid, with the result that the impression is fixed on my mind that we Austra lian housewives are decidedly mono tonous. We get into a groove, and can't force ourselves out of it. There are many new inventions which never reach us at all, and even the well-tried ones we don't run out of our way to secure if they are at all unlike what we have been accustom ed to use. The stacks of brown and green ea...
FIRELESS COOKING. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911
FIRELESS COOKING. Miss Munro, the directress of household science at the Technical College, is a great believer in the new "fireless cooking." A dinner party was recently given at the College, and tne guests, myself among them, were invited to go through the kit chens after the repast was finished. Here in an atmosphere of cool seren ity (despite the dinner party!), and in ' surroundings of spotless cleanli ness^ were the fireless cookers, which the directress extolled. Most of us have known them for some time, for they are no new thing, but they can't be allowed to pass unnoticed in an article on summer cookery, endorsed as they ai-e by experts. A fireless eooker is easily made out of two box es of diffeernt sizes, with closely fit ting lids; one is placed inside the other, and the intervening space is filled-packed tightly-with straw. The dish to be cooked is placed in the inner box, and left for as long as you like, when it will be found to be cooked on requirement. This is a goo...
SALADS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911
SALADS. Little by little the use of olive oil is creeping into our kitchens. But it is not used nearly as much as it deserves to be. Australian cooks seem to fight shy of oil, except for frying lisli, yet it is quite imjjossible to make a proper salad dressing with out olive oil. Salads are more than a luxury in summer, they are a ne cessity, and the oil is most whole some, correcting the tartness/of the vinegar, and taking off tlie^faw taste of the lettuce or other vegetable used. Monotony rules the kitchen of most of us where salads are concerned, and it is a dish that the mistress of the house must nearly always make lier ?; self if she really cares for salad, and wishes her family and guests to like it, too. One reason why olive oil is not liked here as it is by the continental nations of Europe, who have a climate something similar to ours, is that it is very difficult to obtain olive oil that is not rancid. The so-called "salaa" oil in crinkly bottles, is quite out of it for m...

Such is Fame. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911
Such is Fame. Many surprises came as the result of tlie last triennial election. Men who had battled hard- for their dis trict's welfare were in a number of cases ruthlessly cast aside at the bal lot box, no consiueration being given to tlieir many years of active, un selfish work; both in and out . of the council on behalf of their fellow townsmen. In some of these cases it Avas. simply because lie was not a Labour candidate. One case stands out very prominently before us, at;., the present time, which is that of ex-Aid. F. Pinkstone, of Cootamun dra. Mr. Pinkstone lias been an alder man. continuously, we believe, for about 33 years. He has occupied the chair on several occasions. lie has, many times represented the council at the meetings of the Local Govern ment Association, and was also on the executive of that body. He is a member of the executive of the Farm ers and Settlers' Association. Scarcely a public movement in Cootamundra was taken up but what Mr. Pinkstone was to the ...
What an Alderman Has Learned. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911
What an Alderman Has Learned. Aid. I&lt;. Brooks, of Newcastle, says that although'he lias only been in his municipal position'for a few days lie has already seen enough-to make him realise that lie - would have to be very firm to avoid the "jockeying" and buttonholing that appeared in separable from municipal . life. He said: this, of course, just after the election of Mayor for 1911.
Aldermen. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911
Aldermen. Mr. John Brown, who has been an alderman of Central Illawarra for 52 consecutive years, has now retired. This is a record in New South Wales. Appreciative references were made to his long services at the last meeting of the council. Mr. G. ]?'. Hutchinson is retiring from Forbes municipal life. Thirty nine years an alderman, and twelve times Mayor is public service that a district should duly appreciate. Mr. S. G. Close also retires from Parkes with a " good bill of health." He has served twenty-seven years in the council, being Mayor for seven years. Kiama furnishes a record in having a hospital matron for twenty-three years. Miss Barnes has just retired to recruit her health. A testi monial from the townspeople and the Hospital Committee rewarded 'her. Fifty pounds was easily subscribed by her admirers. The succeeding matron, Miss C. Whittingham, was chosen from twelve candidates.
Motoring. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911
Motoring. At a meeting of motor cyclists at Queanbeyan, presided over by Dr. Welch, it was decided to form a motor cycle club, which will be known as the "Federal Motor Cycle Club." The Automobile Club of Australia decided its postponed hill-climbing contest) at National Park, on Saturday, last, and there were no less than 100 motor cars at the park, the own ers of which had carried a full com plement of passengers to see the sport. There were 14 starters in the con test, including the 112-h.p. Merce des, owned by Mr. Colin Smith, but, under the formulae, the big racer had no chance. It flew up the hill in 85 sees, which is good going for a steep ascent of three-quarters of a mile, with six turns. The big car was lightly-laden, however, and as weight, time, and horse-power, all entered in to the competition, it finished last of the bunch of cars 011 points. The winner turned up in Mr. L. W. Pye, the well-known cricketer, who drove a Vauxliall, of 19.7-h.p., and won by six points, fr...
Councils' Officials. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911
Councils' Officials. Terania Council has increased the salary of the Shire Clerk to £200, and that of the Engineer to £400. Mr. J. W. Wilson, Town Clerk of Kempsey, was one of the first alder men , elected 25 years ago, and for 53 years in succession, has been ap pointed judge in connection with the Frederickton Regatta. Unfortunate ly, he could not act in that capacity last month, in consequence of the Go vernment Inspector of Accounts* be ing in attendance at his office, and also the triennial elections taking place the next day.
QUAINT TRIMMINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911
QUAINT TRIMMINGS. Kid facings are a fancy of the moment, a,nd tlie economically mind ed woman can trim her new autumn hat in the arms of her old evening gloves. Ivid, in fact, is useful on both hat and gown. Another popular trimming is wood, and yet another is worsted. White string should not he left out in a list of up-to-date embellishments. Worsted embroidery trims the most expensive gowns, and as it is quickly and easily done, one's autumn frock should net be beyond the reach, of the very mode rate purse. Wood beads are pretty in their proper place, even though that place should happen to le the skirt of one's frock, which they tri umphantly adorn in all quarteis, but are apt to be hard when sat down, upon. Military gold "tassels we to ::be seen on velvet 'gown, and on felt' hat alike. The gold touch Nis notice able in profusion this season. With Easter still far ahead of us, these shows seem a little previous, hut March will soon be here, and the average dressmaker takes quite ...
Boxing. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911
Boxing. Billy Papke, known the world over as the "Illinois Thunderbolt", prob ably received the shock of his life when he was well beaten at the hands of his fellow-countryman, "Cyclone" Johnny Thompson, at the Stadium, on Saturday night. The defeat was a very decisive one, and the result was never in doubt, although the fight went the full 20 rounds. Thompson is a very awkward man for any boxer to tackle, and he had Papke puzzled right throughout the fight. Thompson all along has fan cied his chance of beating Papke, and now that he has a win over the mid ule-weight champion of the world, he will be greatly sought after when he lands in the United States a few weeks hence. From the word go, to the end of the first five rounds, both boxers were very careful, with Thompson doing most of the fighting, and persistent ly boring in on Papke, and deliver ing body blows. The fight, however, was slow up to this stage, so slow, in fact, that the audience on one side of the ring struck up "Go...
