The Supreme Test. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 16 April 1914

The Supreme Test. By A. G. Greenwood. "I'm no Mr. Carnegie meself," con fessed Mrs. Knoyle, my landlady, apol ogetically. She had asked humbly if I could pay her only a little on account. "An' 'ere's a pipe; p'raps you might find a job in the adver-tise-ments," she suggested. "Good-night, Mr. Smith." "You're a ibrick," I said—and she'd been too kind to me to let me feel shamed at my husky voice. "I'll pay somehow—or I'll go. But I'll never forget, Mrs. Knoyle. The thirty shil lings I owe you shall be a first charge on what I earn." ... Thirty shillings! The sum meas ures things up. The. gutter was very close. For six weeks I'd" rehearsed in "The Ruby Girl" without payment— walking on in the crowd. The play had failed. In a week the notices were up. In a fortnight the company all but the lucky "stars"—were stalking the Strand. I got nothing out of it. But I met Eva—Eva Bradley. She was in the chorus—daughter of a barrister—an orphan, brought up to idleness. In my pocket lay her last ...

DUCK FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 16 April 1914

DUCK FARMING. The following pointers on ducks and duck-breeding should foe observed: — There have 'been many failures in duck-farmirg, but the essence of the cause is in the man. The theory that poultry-raising fur nishes a nice occupation for little boys and girls, old men and women, and in valids, has long since been exploded. There is no more continuous work of a light nature than poultry-farm ing, but you will get well repaid for y^ur work. There is a good deal of money in poultry-raising, <but it takes a 'big lift to get it out. A poultry-raiBer will never suffer through want of exercise; it is a good medicine for health. Ducks waste rapidly when in tran sit, but their recuperative powers are equally wonderful. Free range is unnecessary for duck yards; 25ft. x 10ft., well grassed, will carry 50 duck's. Duck-yards should he laid out so that they can be cultivated. It is a . double henefit in healthier stock and better results, also rich crops. The habit of scalding du...

GOOD HERDS ESSENTIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 16 April 1914

GOOD HERDS ESSENTIAL. The dairy cow is one of the best solutions for the problem of the high cost of living. She not only furnishes cheap, wholesome, and nourishing foods, in the products of the dairy, but the manure,, if saved • and properly used on the land, will ; accelerate larger crops and more pro fits per acre. But we must "have good herds. Probably in no other industry con nected with the soil is there more ne nessity for a complete reorganisation of the methods of working than in dairying. Although we have an in comparable climate for dairying the business is unsound at its base through the use of any kind of ani mal in the shape of a cow. No sane man would think of sowing the same kind of seed for a grain crop year after year when he found by practi seed was less than one-half what it cal test that the yield from that seed was less than one-half what it should be. Yet men will go on milk ing and rearing calves for future use from cows which do not actually pay for their ke...

The Cricketers' Concert. The concert organised by Myrtle ford C.C. drew a packed house to Moore's Hall on Monday night.

DIET FOR INDIGESTION. No treatment in cases of dyspepsia is likely to have much effect unless the diet is very carefully regulated. The great thing is to supply the stom ach with such food as will give it the least amount of work. Roast meat, for example, is preferable to iboiled; . chicken, game (not too high) and mut ton- are more digestible than beef or v i pork. Vegetables are frequently pro ductive of discomfort, particularly in the form of flatulence. They should either be given up for a time, or taken very sparingly. It will sometimes be found that a fresh salad, dressed with oil and a little vinegar, can be digest ed when cooked vegetables cannot be taken. The latter- are best served as a puree. If vegetables have to be given up, fruits, such as baked ap ples, grapes, and oranges should be taken instead. Len.on juice also may be used in water. Bread should be toasted, or taken stale. Pastry, cakes, twice cooked meat, soups, tea and cof fee (except in the strictest modera tio...

THE FARM HOME ATTRACTIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 16 April 1914

THE FARM HOME ATTRACTIVE. Farmer's wives and daughters often wonder why their homes do not look as attractive as those of their sisters in town. They say they work twice as hard, and do not have half the chance to have a good time. One very simple thing adds much to the attrac tiveness of the farm home, and that is the presence of flowers. There is no one who can better af ford to have pretty flowers than the farmer's wife, for she has plenty of land and fertiliser. There are so many pretty hardy plants and shrubs that require little work and that when once started will bloom every season for a long time. There are also many annual varieties that will furnish cut flowers for the interior of the house, such as sweet peas, nasturtian, pinks, phlox and asters—my favorites. It is a pleasure to give away flowers to the sick, to carry them to the altar of the little church, and, in fact, it seems as if they are never out of place. There is on class of people who can have as good a time wi...
