PRODUCTION OF FAT LAMBS. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 7 March 1914

PRODUCTION OF FAT LAMBS, in the production of fat lambs it gent: 'y follows that the larger the prope. ,ion of the blood of the Eng. lish breeds in the sire and dam, when bred upon suitaible lines, the better from a mutton point of view and the worse from a standpoint of wool. The reverse is the case when there Is a preponderance of well-bred merino blood' there Is a falling-off in the size of carcase and early maturing characteristics, and a corresponding increase in the character and quan tity of 'wool, A judicious combination of these tlesirable characteristics should be aimed at, with various modifications to be decided by the farmer after gauging the possibilities of his coun try. This desirable combination should not be neglected in the breed lug of ewes. As regards their progeny, early matumity and quality of carcase are of greater Impo'rtance, especially when the condition, invariably allow of their disposal as sucking lambs. When the conditions are not so stable and the pro...

HAM AND BACON CURING. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 7 March 1914

HAM AND BACON CURING, 'A pig that is to be killed should be kept without food for 12 or 16 hours. Every effort should be made. to get every drop of blood out of the body, otherwise the carcase will not cure so well. The pig is then immersed ;n iiearly boiling water, {The proper tempera. lure of the 'water Is very important, If either too hot or too cold the hl:r will not come off freely. A good old. fashioned plan to try the temperature is to let a ,few drops of the pig's blood drop into the water; if It spreads all over the sunface the temperature Is right. Leave the pig In the water until the hair comes off freely. Pigs are not easily lifted out of the water, especially when hot, and it Is a good plan to erect a block overhead, so as to facilitate this operation, The pig should now be Vigorously scraped with a blunt instrument. There is nothing better for the purpose than the li of an old billy. When the hatir is all removed, the skin should be well dried, The Internals are re mov...

ADVANTAGES OF A LIFE PLAN [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 7 March 1914

ADVANTAGES OF A LIFE PLAN It pays to have a life plan. Such a plan uniies our life; it organises our days; it binds our hours together in one harmonious whole; it gives meaning, value and direction to our lives. No man is apt to arrive or to achieve success unless he has a fair. ly distinct notion of where he wishes to go and what lie wants to dlo. There are some meaningless people whom you could accurately call hu. .man derelicts. They drift, and, like everything else that drifts, they drift down streatu. There is at very great difference bctween the men who wait and see what will happen and men who make things happen in such a way that they will contribute to the realisation of their life plan. The first kind of man is a failure; a miserable failure. The second kind of mani is a suc* cess; a splendid success. The one ditferentiating thing between an ig. noble and a noble life is the having a purpose, pursuing an ideal, journey. lug towards a goal, The man who regulates his life by...

FROM VARIOUS 60URCES. THE TANGO DANGER. We hope this tango craze does not attack our wife. Young Mrs. Gobsa Golde, the aged banker's third help mate, has fallen a victim to it, Wit ness the story culled by our reporter. Our reporter tangoes, it seems, right smart, and at the recent house warming of George Mitzler's new Pal ace Hotel, Penn and Mrs. Gobsa Golde did the tango so well that they were the cynosure of all eyes. At midnight old Gobsa told his wife gruffly that it was time to go. The young lady nodded, went quietly to the cloakroom, took her husband's hat and throw it in the stove. Then she returned, and said that just as soon as Gobsa had got his hat and coat and ordered the carriage around, she would be ready to depart with him. She had seven more dances with young Penn 'before the trouble was settled 'by landlord George lending Banker Golde a cap. Yes, we hope the tango craze does not attack our good wife.-Cinnamin son "Scimitar," The married life of Mrs. Ada Bliz zard, w...

THINK FOR YOURSELF. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 14 March 1914

THINK FOR YOURSELF, In educational matters the most im portant matter is often neglected by teaching children the thoughts of oth ers instead of cultivating their own power to think, the necessity of 1which must impress itself on any thought ful person, who must realise that the thoughts, etc., of good men, ranging back 10, 15, 25, and 50 years, are not in all cases the thoughts of to-day or adaptaple to the present conditions. Thus in all educational matters the one liotto stands good, "Think for yourself," And now what do we find when we take a number of young men, who are not dependent on what is generally called education for their sustenance? If they have been 'brought up ini a home where they have not been taught to think by their parents or guardians, or forced to do so by poverty, we find invariably that those people who have not bbeen taught to think are deficient also in will power, and as temptations come in their way they yield to same, Some of you must know of some home...

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 14 March 1914

KITCHEN WRINKLES, When cleaning knives damp them ibefore rubbing on the boards; this will produce a better polish and they will clean much quicker. To Impart a delicate odor to linen, saturate a piece of cotton or blotting paper with oil of lavender and place it among the various articles, A little bag of sulphur suspended in a bird-cage is not only healthy for the bird, but keeps away the parasites with which some birds are infested. If wood worms are in old furniture rub constantly with turpenttine. The polish made of turpentine and bees. wax Is to be preferred to any other for this cure, When boiling a haddock fasten the head to the tpil, add only sufficient water to cover, and 'boil slowly till cooked.

The Archdeacon. I. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 14 March 1914

The Archdeacon. I, No acquaintance called him by any other name than the Archdeacon; but dimly it was remembered by his friends that he had been baptised "George." A fat and kindly man he was, who oozed benevolence from every human pore, had a voice which should have come up from ;the depths of the sea, and a hand which touched all things with gentleness. The friendship between Hugh Don. ald and the Archdeacon was of old standing. Hugh remembered the ami able cleric at Aberfeldy almost as long as he could rememlber anything at all. The truth was that the Very Rev. George Hedges fished both for the souls of men and the bodies of salmon, and was almost equally suc cessful at either vocation. To him, Hugh Donald was as his own son and in this light he thought of him as he sat upon the bridge deck of the yacht Christabel that sunny after noon and listened to the golfers' ,bab. ble, A woman! T'he Archdeacon prick ed up his ears at such talk. '1-las he known her long? Did you say he met h...

LEILA AND HER LOVER By MAX PEMBERTON. -- - Published by Arrangement with Ward, ek and Co. Ltd., Load, and Melb. ---* All Rights Reserved, III, It was nearly one o'clock when they returned to the cottage-Leila was waiting for them on the road, She must have run in and out of the cot tage a nundred times since they went; perhaps she had reproached herself as many because she let them go. It Is true that she thought she knew all about Sir Hugh Donald, 'baronet, of Aberfeldy Castle. Why, surely everyone at Newcastle could tell you his story and she heard it twenty times since the yacht Christabel set his party ashore. He was a very rich man and she was so poor. The simple estimate of riches and poverty came swiftly to the woman's mind for the child's sake. Perchance she was animated by the hope that she would make a friend of this man-she who needed a friend so sorely. IThe great car came slowly up to the cottage, Desdy standing as it came to a halt, and beginning already to tell her of...
