SALT CONTENT OF BUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 19 April 1912

SALT CONTENT OF BUTTER. Mr. A. E. Perkins, of the Ohio Agricultural Experimental Station, gives following simple add convenient method for determining the salt con tent of butter: — Weigh out either 5 or 10 grams of the butter to be tested, which has previously been warmed to a salvy consistency and very thoroughly mix ed, into any receptacle, such as a beaker or cup. Warm gently until just meitea, tnen aaa zv to -su cc. ot commercial acetone and about 1 cc. of standard water solution of potas sium chromate.

Difficult Task. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 19 April 1912

Difficult Task. ] With an exercise-book on his knees, a sharp-looking schoolboy sat in the corner of the compartment, scribbling for dear life. Occasionally he glanced through the window, evidently for in spiration, and sometimes there was an anxious frown on his face. Impressed by the youngster's activ ttv an ni-i p-nTitl ATrinTi in' the oDDOsite corner had his curiosity aroused. 'Can't you manage it?' he asked, in a sympathetic tone. 'Manage what, sir?' the youngster replied. 'Your home lessons.' 'Home lessons!' exclaimed the lad, with a sunny smile. 'This is ten times worse than home lessons. I'm picking our cricket team for Saturday, and I've got sixteen men for eleven places.' She: Robert, just look at little Elsa (aged three weeks) ; the. darling grows more beautiful every day. She will make a good match some time or other. He: For goodnesB sake, don't talk about such things before the child! Figures on the prohibition vots come under the head ot dry statistica.

HEALTH AS A BEAUTIFIER. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 19 April 1912

HEALTH AS A BEAUTIFIER. The best kind of beauty is that which is based on health, for beauty is, after all, more than skin . deep; though the complexion may. make or mar a face, beauty is rather constitutional, and the well-rounded woman, with bright eyes, clear skin, glossy hair, erect carriage, well-kept hands,, and taste in dress, a pleasant - manner, and a cheerful expression, is , good to look upon and a delight in every way, whatever her type of com plexion or features. now lortunate it is that all ol these good things are not entirely gifts of the gods, but readily susceptible to cultivation. Take the complexion, for instance. While all may not have the peaches and the cream of tradition and ro- - manee, a clear, fine-grained skin, with a healthy glow, is possible to every? - one, and there are numerous shades of cream and olive, and even slightly sallow skins are really beautiful and invariably in harmony with the tints - . of eyes and hair. Almost any com- - plexion in its ...

CONDITION OF PLANT FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 19 April 1912

CONDITION OF PLANT FOOD. It is not merely the amount of this or that plant food present in the soil which must be taken into ac count, but also their mode of com bination. The fertilising substances may be present in the soil and soluble in the acid used for analysis, but yet beyond the reach of the plant, in a locked-up or dormant condition. The plant can only obtain substances, which have been previously dissolved in the water contained by soils in the field, hence plant food in the soil is only available for the plant in so far as it can pass into solution. The apparent paradox of a soil being poor or impoverished while yet containing, enough plant food to furnish a hun dred cropB or more, is thus -explained by the comparative insolubility of these reserves, which can only be come available to the plant by pass ing into solution. To use an illus tration, the plant food in the soil may be represented by the capital a man may have locked up in a particular business, the available p...

USING CEMENT ON THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 26 April 1912

USING CEMENT ON THE FARM. There has been a great develop ment of the cement industry the past fifteen years, and each year there is increasing evidence that cement is the ideal building material. The price of building timber is ad vancing to almost prohibitive figures, and it is desirable to obtain a sub stitute which will include the advan- . tages of moderate cost, durability and beauty. Properly ? constructed, a building of concrete' is substantially as firm as the rock of Gibraltar, and on the farm increasing quantities of ce ment are bound to be used in the construction of troughs, walks, posts, building blocks, etc. In this connection of using cement on the farm, Professor H. N. Bainer, of Colorado, U.S.A., makes valuable suggestions. He says never use any thing but the best cement obtainable. This should be in- a fine powdery con dition, and contain no lumps. The sand used should be clean, sharp, and not too fine. Jt should be free from loam, or clay, as these will tend to de...

HOW IS YOUR TEMPER? [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 26 April 1912

HOW IS YOUR TEMPER? It is in the ordinary and trivial affairs of daily life that one's real good or bad temper becomes evident. A hundred petty annoyances and disap pointments may crop up in a week, which may or may not raise a storm in a teacup. It all depends upon the temper of the girl .or man, and the way they have schooled themselves to check the hasty word or give vent to their feelings in an outburst of anger. Lovers' quarrels are generally the out come of trifles, and the behavior of one towards the other count for a great deal. J The great test cannot always be made when the engaged couple are alone. It is more when they, are with, friends that the time comes for study ing each other's weaknesses. Let them each note the manner of the other towards strangers, to old people and children. Let them see if 'each is as sweet and good-tempered over some trivial disappointment or vexation when neither are aware that each is enticing the other. This does not in the least mean that t...

LORETTA'S LOOKING-GLASS. She Holds It Up to a Man. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 26 April 1912

LORETTA'S LOOKING-GLASS. She Holds It Up to a Man. I'm angry at a man! It's not such y an unusual situation in which a wo man may find herself; but they don't always ' get so thoroughly and deeply into it as I am just now. And there's 110 imhiediate prospect of me getting out, because I can't tell the man what I think of him. He came to the city from a small place about six months before his wife came. She stayed with 'her peo ple' to save expenses while lie was oLcii lcu. xie seeiiio iu nave started in a number of unnecessary ways. Then she came. His good look had not escaped ad miring eyes. And he had put on the little 'classy' airs of the city man. She had made over her wedding clothes, and she really looked a bit dowdy. But she's ever so pretty, and Was quite a belle when he married her.

GIRLS OF LONG AGO. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 26 April 1912

GIRLS OF LONG AGO. Backward, turn backward, O Time, in your flight, and give us a maiden dressed proper and right. We are so weary of switches and rats, Great Langtry clusters and peach-basket hats. Wads of jute hair in a horrible pile, stacked on their heads to the height of a mile. Something is wrong with the maidens, we fear; give us the girls as they used to appear. Give us the girlies we once knew of yore, whose curls didn't come from a hair dressing store. Maidens who dressed with a sensible view, and just as Dame Nature intended them to. Give us a girl with a figure her own and fashioned divinely by Nature alone. Feminine style's getting fiercer each . year — oh,- give us the girls as they used to appear. A man will stand for a few hard knocks if his neighbor is getting his with an axe. _ . .

SAYINGS OF MRS. SOLOMON. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 26 April 1912

SAYINGS OF MRS. SOLOMON. Behold, my daughter, the doubters have come unto me, saying: 'Where hast thou gathered thy knowledge of men? For lo, a woman may have ten husbands yet understand not one of them. 'And how shalt thou, having but one husband, assume to know all men?' Go to! I say unto thee, a 'woman that knoweth one man well knoweth the combination which admitteth her to all men's hearts, even as an hotel pass-key. Yea, and a woman that under stand- eth her own sex likewise shall know the opposite sex; for they are as night and day, exactly antithetical. Behold, a woman goeth in round about ways, reasoneth in curves and argueth in circles. But a man moveth in a straight line, and nothing shall turn him from | his course. A woman is like unto a dog, which cheerfully followeth him she loveth, unto the ends of the earth, and grate fully receiveth a pat on the head and a kind word. But a man, even as a cat, wander eth where he listeth, returneth only at meal-times, and desireth to...

FAMOUS HORSE BREAKER. Some of His Methods. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 26 April 1912

FAMOUS HORSE BREAKER. | Some of His Methods. Australia has seen some wonderful ly fine horse-breakers during the last half-century, writes 'Coonatta,' in a S.A. journal, and from time to time the name of first one professor, and then another, has been before the cir cus and 'wild west' show-loving pub lic. None has left so long enduring a name as the illustrious Rarey, who was known throughout Europe as be ins: endowed with a remarkable influ ence over the most vicious and pre viously untameable brutes. With re ference to some at least of his meth ods, he seemingly did not court pub licity. He retained certain secrets, but gave much 'information away, and invented certain varieties of breaking in tackling which are still associated with his name. One such contriv ance consisted of a surcingle buckled around the chest, having two short straps, each with a D ring sewn in (these latter buckled around the front -pasterns) and a ? long rope, about three-eighths of an inch in size. In the...

THROWING THE SHOE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 26 April 1912

THROWING THE SHOE. At the majority of marriages the ?custom' 'of flinging .an* old; shoe after. the happy pair is faithfully observed. The origin of the custom is literally as old as the hills, and can be traced to the Far East. It was there a sign of renunciation or disowning. A father, for example, who wished to disown his son would, in the presence of wit nesses, take off his shoe, and, if pos sible, strike his son wun it. 11 me son were not near at hand, he would throw it in the direction in which he supposed him to be. The shoe was not thrown with the object of causing pain, for the Orien tal shoe is usually merely a soft slip per. Thus, when a bride leaves the . house of her parents, and a shoe is thrown after her, it is only a playful way of saying: 'Be off with you! We disown you! You have nothing more to. do with this house!' During the last general elections a prominent member of Parliament was one night addressing his constituents at a rather stormy meeting, when a man in...

WHEN A WOMAN GROWS OLD. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 26 April 1912

I WHEN A WOMAN GROWS OLD. A woman begins to grow -*-ld at any I age that she herself wills it I It is a matter so entirely within her own control that she has only herself to thank if ever she becomes more than middle-aged. Days, months, and years have an uncomfortable habit of slipping by, but woman need not necessarily be a slave to the calendar. A good, hearty laugh is worth two dqzen visits to the beauty shop. The ability to see fun and enjoy the humorous side of lire is the best sort of facial massage, and face steaming cannot begin to compare with it for ' eradicating those tell-tale lines that keep tally on the passing hours. All these cosmetics and ointments are within1 the reach of any yoman. They are very powerful in tneir ef fects, but to be thoroughly satisfac tory must be used hand in hand with tact and taste in dressing. A woman grows old very fast when she does not understand her possi bilities in garbing, i Now, with her pathway cleared of ' every obstacle, is it not...

Shakespeare Society. ANNUAL COMLPETITIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 26 April 1912

Shakespeare Society. ANNUAL COMPETITIONS, ' Tuesday, April 23rd, was the anni versary of both the birth and death of the world s greatest poet and drama tist, William Shakespeare; and to honor his name a large audience assembled in the local Mechanics' on that date and to witness competitions in the rendering of some of his best works. The Rev F. G. H. Brady pre sided, Stratford-on-Avon being the birthplace of the great master, and our little town being named after it. it is but fitting that we should have here a Shakespeare Society. For several years past Shakespeare enter tainments and competitions have been held, but it was not until last July that a society was formed. Success in the past is due almost solely to Mrs A. L. Johnson's praiseworthy efforts. Many young persons in Strat ford, and not a few older folk, owe their knowlege cf Shakespearean lite rature, scanty though it may be in some cases, to the indefatigable efforts of Mrs Johnson ; and, although she is now living in ...

THE ORIGINAL OF SHERLOCK HOLMES. Of the late Doctor Robert Bell, re puted to be the original of 'Sherlock Holmes,' many stories are told. Bell had such an incisive mind that it was not difficult for him to tell' a man's occupation from his finger-nails, his coat-sleeve, his trousers' knees, the impression of his face, or the callosi ties of his hands. 'Your first child, I see,' he would ouserve to uu auAiuu» uuuciici her infant in the out-patients' consult ing-room of an infirmary; and the sim ple woman, answering in the affirma tive, would depart wondering, but fail ing to see the significance of the bril liant new tartan cape which she had bought for her firstborn. So, too, with the poor working-man suffering with spinal complaint His sympathy was instant and compre: hensive. 'It aches, does it?
