GOOD-BYE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 7 March 1905
' OOOD-BTE.

THE STUDY. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 7 March 1905
131 STUCY. ? (o) ? The apple has a *drger proportion ot phosphorus than aey other fruit, and is therefore, an excellent brain food. Any one with a rheumatic tendency is never a fit subject for camp life tain resort or to a high ground country where the air is very dry. The following represent the best meats for children in the order of their digestibility: Cold mutton, mutton chops, venison, tenderloin, sirloin steak, lamb chops, roast beef, rabbit meat and chicken. Veal, pork, turkey , goose and duck should be excluded from the children'* bill of fare. Electricity is now used for colouring leather more quiokly and deeply. The hide 1b stretched on * metallic table and covered with the colouring liquid; a pressure of a few' volts is then applied between the liquid and the table, which opens the pores of the skin and allows the dye to-*ink in. ' It is alleged that the use of the pincenez in the place of' spectacles is apt to cause cancer. ' A gentleman recently died of this disease, b...
THE SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 7 March 1905
THE SHOW. One of our Reform contem poraries puts in a special plea for the Show Committee, and asseverates that ' The associa tion should be representative of the district and its interests ; ifthis.be not so the fault is chiefly if not entirety that of those who Tack interest in its welfare. Majority has become an accepted axiom, in view of - this if any section transcends another, what cannot be cuved must be endured.' This evi dently by way of proclaiming an extenuating circumstance and some sort of a justification for the attitude which the Show Committee has chosen to as sume towards TiiE Lkadeb, and consequently towards the ; great body of democratic and ;. working-class readers whose I interests Thk Leader voices. E This trouble is not of our seek g|: iug. When Thk Leadek it. was first sent forth to the pub ?&, lie, we expressed our attitude K. in plain words, and that atti K, tude was not one of antagonism R in any other than a political E| Bsuse.

SMART INVENTORS. iKinnoB or tiiuth. rorhaps 5Uj'c most striking instance ?-f a wclliibfentipned but faulty pub lic suggestion lately to hand is that of liypnotiaing a -prisoner to determine iruilt or innocence.

WASTED WALLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 7 March 1905
WASTED WALLS. An experienced gentleman has been making a tour lately round some Kentish villages where farming is giving way to fruitgrowing. At one farm the first thing that caught his eye was the walls of tho outbuildings. Two thousand square feel of space, quite bare. Ou the ond of an Oxford shire cottage he hod seen . an apricot tree, the crop from which paid the rent So here he would have had apricots on the south walls aud cherries and gooseberries on the north. The garden had a wall only four feet high, but on such a wall he had seen tomatoes, eadh plant only taking two feet iu' width, _and bearing eight to ten pounds' of fruit. And tomatoes fetch a fair price a pound. It is the saving of little spaces, as of little fragmente.i-f lime, that makes all the difference. Did not one man write a valuable took in the intervals of time spent in waiting for his wife to put her bonnet on P Soothoy calculated that the time he consumed In shaving was enough in' thirty yeari lo learn ten ...
RURAL LIFE. PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 7 March 1905
&TOALHR. PIGS. Pigs appreciate potatoes more than do most other animals. It is their nature to root and find such things in the ground, and next to following this natural propensity is the prmlpge of having such things offered them. A small amount may be profitably ted raw, but large quantities will not do unless boiled. Put into a tub before they are cold they should be mashed and mixed with milk and a little cornmeal. The quantity should not be large at firet, but small and gradually increased,
BUTTER FLAVOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 7 March 1905
BUTTER FLAVOR. The butter aroma nppears in the butter as the result of tbe ripening j process. Sweet-cream butter does not ? have this delicious flavor, aud while there is a demand in the market, per haps a growing demand, lor sweet cream butter, it never develops the delicate flavor known as the butter aroma. During ripening, certain changes take place in the cream, some of which we understand, and others which are at present beyond the reach of chemi cal knowledge. The composition of cream is essentially the same aa that of milk, except in the higher pro portion of fat. » It is made up chiefly of butter-fat in the form of globules, of casein in a partial suspension in the liquid, of milk-umgor in solution, and of a small amount of albumen, the form of an extremely delicate net work of fibers which we call Hbrin. Cream always contains a largo number of bacteria, yeasts and moldB, whjch are the active agents in ripening. ? The sources of the semicro-orgouisms are varied. They are no...
