THE OPEN-AIR BREAKFAST. WHY NOT USE THE GARDEN? [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 21 February 1914

THE OPEN-AIR BREAKFAST. WHY NOT USE THE GARDEN? Most pcoplo who have . travelled abroad treasure a recollection of mwils enjoyed out of doors. The dinner on a. shady terrace, the refreshment and the band in a garden, the cup of coffee on. tho boulevard linger pleasantly in their memory as a complete change from homo liabits. Tho English climate is usually believ ed, (remarks a London paper) to ho. tho chief obstacle that stands in the way of any general adoption of the Conti nental open-air meal, though the true reason is more likely to be found in a British disinclination for new paths. There are, of course, some whose a I fresco meal, to ho attractive, must be taken in public, with a certain amount of ceremony, and possibly at consider able expense But for every 0110 of these there are at least a hundred who can appreciate the charms of privacy and simplioity. For these last, pro vided they possess a garden, the ques tion presents no dilficultv. Even the small garden th'/it most s...

WOOL PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 21 February 1914

WOOL PROSPECTS. TYith the general trado of tho world active, and every prospect of remain ing so, there should be a strong con sumptive demand for wool during the coining year. Labor in the Old World is well employed at better wages tho world's wool requirements continue to increase, while tliero will be a great shortage of wool in manufacturing ccntres before tho <md of tho present calendar year, and only moderate sup plies lor 1914. Wool will bo admitted into tho United States of America duty free, and it wil not bo very long be fore that gfeat wool-using nation will require a great proportion of Austra lia's clip. Owing to great financial stringency in tho (J.S.A., it is quite possible that they will not tako u great amount of wool during the com ing season; but they are so short of stocks that they must purchase some, and later on they will rcquiro a large quantity.

RANCID BUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 21 February 1914

RANCID BUTTER. Bacteria of certain kinds arc un doubtedly tho most offensive agents in making butter rancid, but it may also be caused by oxidation, due to the ac tion of light and air. Any kind of un cleanliness in the dairy will at onoa tend to produce rancidity in the pro duce. The lisb of impure water for washing up the. dairy utensils, failure to wash tho butter in the grain suffi ciently, tho use of milk from dirty, cows, or milk which contains colostrum as yielded by freshly-oalved cows, all those causes help to.make butter rancid. No doubt the commonest cause of rancidity js failure to wash sufficiently tho butter in tho grain. Tho caseinous matter, or buttermilk., if left in the butter in excessive quantities, will quickly sot up decomposition and impart a very strong flavour to the produce. J.t can easily bo discovered whether tho wash ing of butter lias been properly per formed or not ; all that is ncccssarv is to press gently, but firmly, on a pier.v of the buttor with a...

LATE SUPPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 21 February 1914

LATE SUPPERS. Late suppers are a common eausft.or insomnia, especially that form of it in which people fall iuto a heavy sleep, only to wake with u start an hour or so later. Digestion comes almost to a (lead stop during sleep, so that suf ficient time should be allowed for the last meal to be disposed of before the hour of retiring. This interval should be two hours at least, which often means that half past eight is, as a. rure, lato enough for the evening meal. In any ease, the food which is taken then ought to be of light nature, and not includo pork, cold meat, or any other article of diet which is sloiv of digestion..

AMERICAN AGRICULTURE. Ail American expert says of Agri culture" in the United States:-"There is good authority for the assertion that fclio farmer could take from tlio same area of ground in' four years grain crops as much as seven years now give him. leaving tlie products of the other three years when the land rested from grain, as a clear profit due to better methods. _ He can do far moro than that by joining live-stock raising with grain raising. Naturo has provided eattlc to go with the land. . . "What our pcoplo have to do is to cover less ground, cultivate smaller farms so as to make the most of them,/instead of getting a scant and uncertain yield from several hundred acres."
