BULK HANDLING OF GRAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 3 January 1911
BDLK HANDLING OF GRAIN. It is surprising indeed, in these days of keen competition, to say no thing of the ntilitarian and economic aspects of the question, that our Aus tralian methods ,ot.:handling grain ate almost as ancient as the Pyramids. We seek and utilise every implement that has the reputation of being superior to its predecessor for in creasing the productivity of the soil ; the '' very latest ' harvesters ' kick up a dast' in the work of lifting the golden wealth from its earthy asso ciations. But there ingenuity, or even plain, common sense, seems to come to. an abrupt full stop with the Australian ' man on the soil.' The most primitive means of despatching the grain from the homestead still hold sway, -while it must be patent to the least observant that if we desire to compete successfully with the great grain-prodncing countries, such as the United States, Canada, Argentina and Rnssia, we must not give, any points away. The countries referred to handle and transport g...

'Kemberton is a very small village on the Pickering Valley -Railroad, near Phocnixville, Pennsylvania,' replied the policeman, who looked intelligent, but gazed into space with an abstract ed air. 'Am I headed the right way?' ask ed the stranger, hardly trusting his cars. 'The Nodaway River rises in Iowa,' said the policeman, still gaz ing into space. 'It flows south across the north-west corner of Missouri, and empties into the Missouri River. The ' .' alien and sedition laws were passed taring the administration of '.John Adams.

THE UNTIDY WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 3 January 1911
THE UNTIDY WOMAN. The woman who is untidy is apt to realise that untidiness is ar bad habit and one to be decried. She may make efforts to cure it or she may not, either not caring to over come the habit or believiner the feat impossible. But she rarely real ises what untidiness costs. If she would sum up what it may mean to her in actual money, then she might make more valiant efforts to secure it: The business person who is un tidy loses, time. And time is money in business. The business man or woman whose desk is a hodgepodge of letters, bills, receipts, and other important business data ; who never knows where a letter or mem orandum is when wanted, loses hours in the course of a week hunt ing for them. This time could be used much more profitable^ The successful ? business' man makes every minute count in making mon ey. : He isn't wasting hours search ing for things he should be able to put his hands on in a minute. The opportunity to make* a big sale or land a big order is oft...

A PRIDE IN FURNITURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 3 January 1911
A PRIDE IN FURNITURE. A good housekeeper always takes a pride in keeping her furniture up to the mark. The 'dusters should be clean arid soft, not made of scrat chy material. Furniture finished with shellac or varnish should'never be cleaiised with soap and water. The soap eats the oil of the varnish or shellac, and destroys the surface. Where white spots appear on pol ished tables through hot things being placed on them immediately apply raw linseed oil, which will re store the colour. The oil must be left on for several hours. When the colour returns polish with tur pentine.
