FOR WOMEN .. A rnf>ri>si.'VH. Last week I hail .something to say about the economics that could-be pur chased by those who are prepared to really iook for the means to save. Sinco then Miss Sandes, the superin tendent of the College of Domestic Science, has given some valuable hints which deserve the widest publicity pos sible and the closest attention. She says:-'"'Many women do not know how to buy meat. They purchase'some ex pensive cut, such as the sirloin, for, say, (id. a pound, when they could get a 'chuck' roast for -Id. Properly trea'iei, the cheaper cut would be just as good as the sirloin. It is a question of cook ing. The cheapeveut must have a long, slow cooking, otherwise the meut will be tough. On the cheap cuts bought for soup there is often meat that could be cut oil' the bones for the making of patties. Quite a lot of people are always relying on .joinis for their meats. It is not unusual for jjaeni to have three joints a week, with cold meat on the other four...

IT COMES MANY WAYS, But however it may come, the remedy reaches all. Kidney complaint may begin from many sources, such as cold,, injury by accident, or the result of other com plaints. However it may come, Doan's Backache Kidney Pills always cure. Let this fact be an ever-present memory with you. All sufferers should be interested in the following: Mrs. H. S. Wilson, Broome-crescent, Wonthaggi, says:-"Some months ago my husband was nearly doubled up with backache. He could not stoop or move freely, and night after night would lie awake. The pain was so severe that it'was as much as he could do to move in bed without assistance. He was suffering greatly, when he commenced to use Doan's Backache Kidney Pills, but this remedy soon drove the pain out of his back, and he has been right ever since. We always keep Qoan's Backache Kidney Pills, and he takes them occasionally, so as to keep his kidneys strong and well. I advise all sufferers to give Doan's Backache Kidney Pills a. trial." M...
FIVE RULES FOR FORTUNE [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 26 March 1915
FIVE RULES FOH ! FOSTUNE . 1. Cultivate nad perfect your ideas. Experiment. The world is eager foi something new, which, however simple it may be, will save labor, or expense, or do things better. Let it be mors convenient, or promote pleasure-reduce waste. People who handle things in every day use are the na'iural inventore of better things, and the natural capitalists of to-morrow. Read the splendid advice that Edison gives. Learn (he procedure as to pa tenting in the oljef countries,-then secure your own legal monopoly for your rights by becoming a patentee. 2. If that workman or foreman, or your ingenious friend has produced a clever invention put him on the track of famous and wealthy inventors. Mr. F. Townsead, an editor, says of the "Inventors' Guided' "I am re commending it strongly to friends. Best of the kind I L.ave seen. It should do n lot. of good.

PHOSPHATES AND THE SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 26 March 1915
PHOSPHATES AND THE SOIL. If one looks at the character oi' the ash constituents of plants, as shown by analysis, it will be observed that tho quantities of nitrogen and potash ex tracted from the soil by the dilferenC crops are in most casus larger than tho quantities of phosphoric acid. Thus a potato crop of six tons makes! 87 lb of nitrogen. 2221b of potash, and only 30 lb of phosphoric acid. A mangold crop of 22 tons takes (roots and leaf), 12S II) of nitrogen, 300 lbs of potash, and only 531b of phosphoric acid, and so on. In actual practice it is found, however, that of the three fertilising ingredients, the application to the soil ot available phosphoric acid is of im portance as greater, if not greater than either of the other constituents. The reason for this- seems to be that potasli and nitrogen circulate througjh tho soil, and thus are more available for the plant roots than the phosphoric acid. Tlie latter constituent, even when appl:ed in the form of a soluble superphos...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 26 March 1915
OF RURAL INTEREST Busticus. J A quite new and striking aspect has been imparted to the efforts to bring producer and consumer into more direct touch by recent developments 011 the part of the Co-operative Spiling Com panies. Those organisations have safe ly weathered the stress of the inaugural period of their existence. The pro phecies for their speedy disintegration, which were so freely spread around dur ing the earlier part oi their *caraers have, confounded the prnphots. bach veur has strengthened them and they :tru steadily widening their range- of activity in the interests of the man 011 the land. That much exploited indivi dual is consequently getting more of what is-bis due.

McLeod, aged 28 years, only son of-Captain McLeod, of the s s. Genista, had disappeared under circumstances which left no doubt that he had come to an untimely end. At 10 o'clock on the morn ing of the day named he left home to go to his 12ft. rowing boat and dinghy, which were - moored near the back of the police station.

THE MASTER PASSION. CHAPTER XLIII. FRIENDS! [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 26 March 1915
THE (By Lillian Ellerton). CHAPTER XL/ILL. FRIENDS! The blinds were drawn down in No. -, Jennyn street, but golden rays fil tered through every chink, and played here on a glass vase, there on the jewel studded handle of a Turkish pipe, as if eager to announce its presence to Cap tain Val Beresford, whenever he chose to take the trouble to open his eyes. With a sigh he aivoKc, and looked round the room, staling longest at a l'air head which appeared over the back of an armchair, as il' he could not imagine whose it was. Tne hair was just the same color as Deverei's, the man whom he had quar relled "with; but it was not likely that he: would l)o in the same room with him, when they hud not spoken to each other-was it for weeks or years.' How long had he been lying there.' It was not his own room, for there were lots of things lying about which had never belonged to him.

IRON IN FERTILISERS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 26 March 1915
j SROft IN FERTILISERS. Trou is always found in the ash of plants, and, therefore, forms a part of their composition, but in such an in significant quantity that it is not neces sary to take it into consideration. A crop of wheat, grain, and straw is esti mated tc contain only about 21b to the acre, and hay from 31b to olb. Mr. Mnnts, Professor of: the Institut Agro tioiniq'ue, at Paris, investigated this subject, and pointed out that the ac i"on of sulphate of lime as regards pro ducing increase of crop or improvement of quality does not justify the favor able opinions sometimes expressed. Far mers should not bo induced to pay for it as an ingredient in chemical man-__ tires. On the other hand, although of no commercial valuo as a fertiliser, it possesses properties which are most use ful as an insecticide, and for the rcv ' moval of moss, dodder, and other nozious growths,
SCIENCE AND THE APPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 26 March 1915
SCIENCE AND THE APPLE. In England all cooking fruits have been low in price since the outbreak of tho war, owing to sugar being too dear for general use in the process of preserving. But science has again coaie to the aid of the producer. The price of apples being abnormally low, inves tigations wore made at the laboratories at the Bristol University to see if it were possible to convert apples into marketable jam or jelly, without any addition of sugar. It is announced that the chemists have succeeded in producing a very palatable jelly, made without any sugar or glucose, from apples, that were ripe at tho time of the experiments. Arrangements had been made at a large jam factory to put the commodity on tho market, and a large "War Office contract was in ne gotiation. The jelly, it is stated, couid be made for about Id. per pound.
