WOMEN'S INTERESTS [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 20 March 1914

WOMEN'S INTERESTS 0 (By "Ambrosine.") The bizarre in dress threatens to be much to the fore this season, says a Paris expert. Already we see signs of the evil in the newest and smartest models as seen in this city. Headgear in the form of skull caps with towering aigrettes, skirts with an exaggerated split from the feet, and bodices of day gowns cut so low as to be almost de collete; and fur stoles twisted about the form, and muffs are the size of pillows. At one shop I saw a walking gown in whito velvet trimmed with bands of sable. Is not this the last word in extravagance? Now, I am no Puritan as regards dress, but I think that every woman should suit her costume to her circumastances. Bi zarre dress has charms, but it must be given its surrounding. Au outre gown or hat which looks well when worn by a smart woman in a motor, seems out of place on a middle-aged matron, or when worn by a young wife who keeps no maid and traveis by omnibus. And the tight skirt and huge hats which one...

THE CHINESE GARDENER. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 20 March 1914

THE CHINESE GARDENER. "Australia has decreed that the Chinese market gardener is to die out. Who, then, will take his place?" This question is asked by the Sydey "'Daily Telegraph" which proceeds to discuss the respective merits of the white malln and the Chinese in this capacity. The Audtraliau, the "''elegrap.hi" thinks, will not be able to conic "within coo-cc' of the Chinaman, as regards results in relation to cheapness. He lacks the patient devotion to toil which charac terises the Chinaman. He will not, walk all day, and a great part of the evening, w\ith two 'heavy watering pots suspenlled on a pole across his shoulders The Chiinanian is inured ito this task by long experience, and it is ii t.hrs way that lie produces the best vege tables. T'he sprinkler, according to Chinese miarket gardeners, is inot to be comlpalred in its results with the watering put, .and it involves, besides, mIIIII expns for wasted water a1nd wear and tear of hlose.

ODD MENTION. Forgetting care and loss, Wo hamewvard turn at eveniug sc-k ing rest, Surcease of sorrow, and a refuge blest, Courage to bear life's cross. Sereno the moon shines crigat, The flowers close their pQetals; angels keep Their loving vigils o'er us, and we sleep Safe through the long, still night. One goodi job well done beats a dozen that are "good onough." He is not kind to his children who does all of their work for them. Yesterday must be handled very care fully and gingerly when we would try to make it fit to-day. Keep an old cap and coat hanging up in the barn to slip on when you have a. dusty job to do. Cover the better clothes with a cloth of some, kind while doing this work. There, are just as good people living on the next farm as you will bd likely to find anywhere. Be neighborly with them.

FEEDING DAIRY COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 20 March 1914

FEEDING DAIRY COWS. The English Field says:-The increas ed prominence thit is given to the ques tion of feeding dairy cows is indioative of the growing importance of dairy farm ing and of the closer attention that is devoted to economy in production. The experiments carried out at the agricul tural colleges, and particularly at the Armstrong, the Wye, and the Hisuper Adams Colleges, havei ntensified, if they. did not actually originate, the wider interest that is now manifested ia this subject. It is ovident that the teaching :f the college experiments has not been ig nored north of the Tweed. The Scot tish farmer is no exception in that he does not chango his methods quickly or without a prospect of resulting benefit; but like his neighbors in the South, he is eager to discover a means eceono mising expenditure and auguenentin, income. Whilo he does not put aside the plans evolved from long exper:enec, under the peculiar conditions of his holding, he is over on the look-out for use...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 20 March 1914

OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Rusticus.") Yet another contribution to the seem ingly endless discussion of bitter pit in apples has been made available in the second report by Mr. D. M'Alpine, 'ho was appointed by the Federal Go vernment and the Government of Vic toria to investigate the disease. In it Mr. McAlpine uiscusses the theory that bitter pit is caused by poison, suoh as spraying with arsenical compounds, and gives evidence in support. The true 'cause, he thinks, lies in the fluctuating conditions of temperature and humid ity, whicis produce irregularities in the transpiration, and, in the case of the growing apple, derangement also of the vascular network. It is a functional disturbance of portions of the tissue, as in the case of cancer, and not the wholesale shrivelling, drying and with ering due to the failure of the supply of water to the apple as a whole or its withdrawal. Mr. M'Alpine adds that cold storage experiments have conclus ively'proved that if apples are stored at ...
