"Why don't you try and get to church oftener, Bridget ?v he asked reprovingly.

RAZOR REASONING. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 18 August 1916

RAZOR REASONING. 1 A razor, either safety or old stylo, will shave better if the stropping is done sometime before the shave is taken ; say about ten minutes. Every one knows that a razor's edge, loot ed at through a microscope, appears like a saw with many jagged teeth. It has these teeth, no matter hoir sharp it is. Now, as the razor is stropped some of these teeth are broken off and others are merely bent ; so the last stroke of the strop, even though it be an even-number.'d one, will bend some of the small teeth to one side. If a little time elapses, however, these will bend• back into position. Another peculiar thing about a razor that is widely known is that if it is given a long rest of two or three months it will seem to get young again and will put up a good shave. This is probably caused by the teeth on the edge rusting off- N'o matter how clean you rub a razor after shaving, small particles o! water remain between the teeth. As the;edges of the teeth are the points expose...

GROW BEEF, DON'T MAKE IT. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 18 August 1916

GROW BEEF, DON'T MAKE IT, *— Good herdsmen agree that a calf should never be allowed to lose any of its first flesh, and that loss due to a halt or retrograde step is difficult to regain. Many stock raisers, how ever, think the calf not worth bother ing with, and postpone the special care and attention it should receivc while young to a later date, but to a time when it will not be transformed into as many pounds of flesh as dur- . ing the first six months of the calf's life. However, a good root acreage, a high silo well filled, lots of clover hay and chop, and a liking for stock will combine to grow beef that will be very acceptable to the hungry, mul titudes. Autumn calves are not as common as they should be where the herd is maintained for dual purposes, but any that come along at this sea son of the year should receive parti cular care, for thoy will be worth a fair price for beef in the next few years. Any normal calf will consume a large quantity of milk when obtained natural...
