YUM! YUM! Kissing All Day. An English Custom. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 25 May 1912

YUM! YUM! Kissing All Day. An English Custom. In some ways England is still mediaeval. An exchange says: — Just when England is beginning , to pride itself on its progress of modernity, Hungerford, on the borders of Berkshire and Wiltshire, slips back into the cen turies because it is Hockney Tuesday. Unless you have lived through Hock ney Tuesday you can have no conception of what it means. It needs strong nerves and a stronger constitution _ thoroughly to enter into .the spirit of ancient times. . . At 8 o'clock the town , crier, in grey and scarlet, with brass buttons, comes out of the town hall and blows three notes on the ancient horn given by John ©' Gaunt, and that is the signal for two tutti-men to emerge from the constables house with staves tipped with flowers daffodils, primroses, and tulips, surmount ed by an orange. ? . It is their business to go forth and kiss the damsels of the town, irrespective of age or beauty, . according to custom. Mr. James Blake and Mr. Anthony...

WOMAN'S FRIENDSHIP AND THAT OF MAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 25 May 1912

WOMAN'S FRIENDSHIP AND THAT OF MAN. It is an accepted fact that the older we grow the more difficult it is to make friends. .. Burns reminds us that there comes a time when anything worthy of the name of friendship is impossible, and that it is only during the impressionable years of early life that the heart is sus ceptible to the formation of friendship. Old friendships can be retained, but new ones cannot be made. This decline of power to form new .friendships is equally pronounced in both sexes, but in the for mation of friendships there is a marked difference between man and woman. Girls in their teens often strike up. very hasty friendships, and they are quite satisfied jhat for. ^IMJme ihe^wo- will.be ^abso lutely staunch *to oner another. Then, again, girls make friends much more quick ly than do their brothers, and the friend ships thus suddenly formed are almost as rapidly dissolved. 3s'or is the reason far to seek. The male mind has more power of judgment than .the female...

Money, Mines & Commerce. Stocks and Shares. (By ASMODEOUS.) BANKING. Most' people when face to face with the row of figures -winch represent the quarterly averages of the banks trading in the Commonwealth skip them as they would an unpleasant tasK. Yet when read in conjunction with the 'table of ex ports ani imports they furnish the best guide to people of how public and private imanee is going. Now that the Common ' wealth has to have its own bank they . will need to be scrutinised eyen more , closely than heretofore. Those of the Federal institution mar in time come to have a bearing on affairs here relatively as important as those of the Bank of England and the money market of Lon don. To-day, however, we have only to deal with the figures of our own joint stock banks, and these, as it happens, tell a tale that no one can afford to ig nore. In the first place it has to be accepted that Australia is now on the high road to an exceedingly droughty year. The lambing promises...

FREEZING GROUND TO SINK A SHAFT. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 25 May 1912

FREEZING GROUND TO SINK A SHAFT. In sinking a shaft at a colliery near Doneaster. England, water was encounter ed. It was pumped out at the rate of 7,000 gallons a minute, but the supply seemed inexhaustible, and the engineers were about to give up. But some German engineers came to the rescue. They bored holes around the shaft to a depth of 4!K) ft., lined these with steel tubes,' and pumped down a freezing mixture, which soon turned the ground and the water into a great block of ice. Through this the boring was continued as through 'rock; then the shaft was lined with iron plates. This done, warm water was pumped down the tubes to thaw out the ground grad ually. The frost wall was so strong that it required three months to thaw.

SEASONABLE NOTES. LINSEED. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 25 May 1912

SEASONABLE NOTES. LINSEED. If you are short of greenfeed use a little linseed two or three times a week. About a teacup fuil is sufficient for 50 birds. Add one quart of water and boil until it jellies, and then mix in the morn ing mash. It builds up the system and keeps the birds in good health. It is cheap — about 3d. per lb. Every poultry keeper should feed it during the months of March, April, and May. It helps the older birds through the moult and keeps the young stock growing. GREENFEED. Plant at once lettuce. Cape -barley, rape, kale, mangels, and cabbage. These are the best for winter use. Greenfeed gives health and vigour to the stocK, keeps the young birds growing, helps the laying, and is essential to success. Chaffed greedfeed fed with the morning meal lessens the cost of feeding and in creases your profits.

The pro fits look so lar^e on paper that many are Jed astray by the idea that money is quickly made, and overlook the fact that a start has to be made at the bottom of the ladder. To steadily but surely work upwards is the only safe way for the ave rage person. Nevertheless there is . no industrv which shows better returns for the amount of capital invested as the poultry industry. To be successful you must start right and use your senses and faculties of judg ment and reason — observe, compare, and reflect.

On arriving home, -without any undue waste of time, the picked up one of the old and dirty flower pots that are to be found in every one's backyard, filled it with soil scoop ed out of the nearest bed, and sowed the seed. Knowing that most plants liked eun and warmth, she stood it in a posi tion where it got the full benefit of King Sol's rays. Nor did die forget for three weeks to water.it once a day^-by turn ing the tap on it. And, strange to say, nothing came up except a number of marsh frnellowB.
