COOKING DRIED APRICOTS. [Newspaper Article] — Renmark Pioneer — 18 January 1896
COOKING DRIED APRICOTS. Wo. VI.—A Mildura resident who has been conducting a series of ex periments in cooking dried apricots, has kindly furnished the Cultivator with the following recipe, which has been found to be the most successful of all.—Wash the* fruit thoroughly and quickly in hot water, then rinse and soak from 12 to 24 hours in an earthenware vessel, using sufficients? cold water to cover well. Drain off the water into an enamelled sauce pan and add lib. of sugar to each pint and a half of the liquid. Boil this syrup for ten minutes then put in the apricots, and allow them to simmer, not to boil, for about 20 minutes. Cooked in this way the apricots are not distinguishable from stewed fresh fruit. Half a pound of dried fruit will make a dish sufficient for six per sons. Serve cold. No. VII.—The following directions are followed by a lady in Mildura whose dried fruits as coolud by her! halve been universally praised:—"First wash quickly'in cold water. Then' place the fruit...
THE OAK OF GEISMAR. (Concluded from last week.) [Newspaper Article] — Renmark Pioneer — 18 January 1896
TEE OAK OF GEI8MAB, From "Sciubneb's Magazine.' (('unc liuled from last tceek.) In front of the tree a blazing fire of resinous wood sent its tongues of flame and fountains of spju-ks far up into the sky, and a great throng of people were gathered around it in a half-circle. The aspect of the multitude, seen a,gainst that fierce illumination, was like the silhouette of a crowd, black and mysterious. As ihe travellers left their sledges in the edge of the thicket and crossed the glade, none turned to notice them ; all the people were look ing intently toward the fire at the foot of thf na.k. Then Winfred's voice rang out. " Hail, ye sons of the forest I A stranger claims the warmth of your fire in the winter night." Swiftly, and as with a single motion, a thousand eyes were bent upon the speaker. The semi-circle opened si lently in the middle; Winfred entered with his followers ; it closed again be hind them. Then, as they looked round the curving ranks, they saw that the hue of the ...

A LOCAL INVENTION. THE "GRIP" FLUME. [Newspaper Article] — Renmark Pioneer — 18 January 1896
A LOCAL INVENTION. THE "GRIP" FLUME. This appliance has been invented and patented by Mr. J. A. Francis of Renmavk. Having for some time had under consideration the idea of having made some cheap, simple and effective method of conveying water, in the p'ace of minor channels and head ditches, Mr. Francis, after a series of experiments, brought out what he now calls the "Grip" Flume. It is light, cheap and portable, easily packed for conveyance, readily put together where required, It is not a ■p. . . jixtiirg on the laud when ewcted, but can to take-i to pieces and removed. On stations the small sizes are likely to be largely used, where miles of piping are erected for sheep water ing and for the irrigation of fodder crops. On mines there appears to be a large field for the invention, as it may be used to convey water to the bat teries and machinery from any dis tance. Contractors requiring water conveyed to the scene of their opera tions, market gardeners and managers of sewage far...
A NEW CROP FOR ARID LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Renmark Pioneer — 18 January 1896
A NEW CHOP FOR ARID LANDS. Advices received from reliable autho rity in Arizona and New Mexico— where Cauaigre is indigenous—seem to show quite positively that this new tannic plant responds readily to culti vation, and that its profitable produc tion on a commercial basis has prac tically passed the experimental stage. Plantings up to date seem to indicate that a yield of from 12 to 18 tons per acre can be safely relied on under fa vorable conditions, which is certainly sufficient to be profitable if the price shall continue from $6 to $7 per ton, as at present. Of canaigre some 90.000 tons will be required annually in this country alone to take the place of the imported gambier used at present. Up to the present time nearly all of the canaigre root finding its way to market has been harvested in its wild state, no systematic effort having been made to produce it as a cultivated crop, though it has commanded atten tion, and we believe a number of plan tations have been started. Abo...

TURKISH TROUBLES. LONDON, January 11. [Newspaper Article] — Renmark Pioneer — 18 January 1896
I — TUBKISH TROUBLES. London, January 11. j | The Duke of Westminister, who has add reused several public meetings in London on behalf of the oppressed Armenians, has declined to accede to a request made to him that he should put further pressure on Lord Salisbury giving as his reason that England cannot act alone in the matter without great risk of war with Russia. The political interests of Great Britain, he states, claim his first consideration, outweighing as they do all interests. If Russia, he adds, would .cooperate with England the outrages would soon cease.
