PIGS FOR BACON. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 8 January 1914
PIGS'FOR BACON. Certain modifications In the meth. ods of killing and preparing pigs for bacon have been necessary in recent years to meet the demands of the consumer and curer. Among these has been the movement in favor of less fat and more lean, what is pre ferred now being a tasty, mild-flavor ed, somewhat lean bacon, which is Ilnuly streaked with fat and of firm texture. It is occaslonally found in dealing with carcases for either pork or ba. con that there exists an abnormal condition in the 'texture of fibre of the flesh. It Is soft, yields.to pres nure, is flabby, and possesses an un natural greasiness. Thin "class of flesh invariably cures badly, and pro duces inferior bacon. Observation has taught tpat It is maiinly due to the various classes of food being used in improper proportions. Further experience has shown that this influence is more pronounceddur ing winter. Lowv temperatures exert a change upon the nature of the body fat. Animals exposed to cold are prone to produ...
FOR THE FARMER. HOUSING POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 8 January 1914
FOR THE FARMER. HOUSING POULTRY. If all poultry houses of the closed in typo had an end or one side "of them knocked out, disease would dim Inish by one-half, and the profits frol the birds compolled to roost' in them would, probably, be doubled. It, Is lipossible to conceive anything more insanitary and conduclie to disease than the ordinary. typo of fowlbouso one sees in the countrF. It is cramp ed, dark and without any ventilation, except the rauny draughty cracks. it Is little wonder that going from thu foetid atmosphero into often an un, sheltered yard the birds contract colds, and soon become a prey to dle ease. It were far better to let the hens roost in trees. The sleeping quartoro of fowls should be merely draught-proof shelters from extremes of weather and, If winter eggs be de sired, they should have dry scratch fug quarters for bad weather. Always 'have your poultry houses open to the north.
NEWLY-ENGAGED GIRLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 8 January 1914
NEWLY-ENGAGED GIRLS. Why Is It that a newly-engaged girl ( ua thorn in tie leshi to all her dis gaged sister women? To begin with-observes a lady correspondent (who Is not newly-en gaged)--sho Is odiously sorry for you because you on't Ilappen to be a boetrothed person also. You may have heaps of chances, may know that you are really and truly quite nice, but the most ordinary girl who over seiz ed upon her first proposal will patron Ise you until you feel almost ready to accept anyone. Wheon she isn't irritating you, the newly-engaged girl Is rather funny over the ring more especially. This sacred object for a few weeks appar ently occupies the place of sun, moon, stars and all light.. It it-can be said to flash, it does on every conceivable occasion. And then, in other ways, sho is so hopelessly selfish. But perhaps the personal vanity of the engaged girl enrages her femln Ino acquaintances more than any of her numerous failings.

LUCERNE AS A SOIL RESTORER. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 8 January 1914
LUCERNE ASA SOIL RESTORER. Mr. S. P. Keys, writing in "Hoard's Dairyman," says:-When we come to the quention of the upkeep of the fer tility of our farims, we find that we face quite a serious problem. From what source are we to restore the humus, or vegetable matter, that is being rapidly exhausted by continu ouo cropping? Maniures and coentercial fertllloers, while valuable, are not always obtain. able. Ft'armors waste the barnyard manuire, and feel that they cannot af ford to buy conmmorclal fertllisoers.

THE ANTIQUITY OF HAIRPINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 8 January 1914
THE ANTIQUITY OF HAIRPINS. Hairpins have been elaborated as a means of decoration since the earliest times. Particularly beautiful Is .the uclleacy of their workmanship, two of the finest specimens being the gold;' pins which were iound at Salamis in*: .1 ' Cyprus, and are now in the British:_me Museum. Even more handsome warer the Saxon pins of a later date,' with?.." their shank of brass, head of gold' and embellishment of garnets and pearls. There were, too, the iarger sort of pins so conspicuously and re quently mentioned in the Bible. The instrument driven by Joel through the temple of Sisera was probably a tent-. pin, 'while Delilah rostened the we on Samson's har with a pin or atten. In the Middle Ages pins were a great tashlion-indoed a necessity- in France, and we have It on record that In 13'i7 twelve thousand pins were removed from the royal wardrobe for nsr of the French princesses. The convenlence was probably a little later in reaching England, but In 1510 we hlear of ...

COMMENTS WISE AND OTHERWISE. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 8 January 1914
COMMENTS WISE AND OTHERWISE. There are certain people In the world whom the more you think of the loss you think of them. Surely It isn't extraordinary to get pearls out of a matchbox. Lots of girls have got diamonds out of mugs before now. According to a Parls paper, "Seventy per cent. of the French people live in one room." But It must be a Jolly big room. A Russian dwarf of 4ft. has, we learn, fallen In love with a St. Peters burg-lady of 6ft. 21n. That's not fall log in love-that's climbing up to it.

A Slippery Customer. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 8 January 1914
A Slippery Customer. A fortnight ago, a man named John Clarke was one of a batch of prisoners taken by the police from the watehhouse. to be arraigned at the Melbourne City Court. At the Court, Clarke quietly. separated himself from his companions in custody, mixed with other people in the Court House, apologised quietly to a policeman against whom he bumped as he made his way to the door, walked quietly from the building and-disap peared. The police have been looking for him ever since. On Saturday, the police got word that the escaped prisoner was to be married that night in a speci tied house in Fitzroy to a woman who had given the name of Mfinnie Clarke, when with Clarke she was charged with having stolen a quantity of woollen goods, the woman having been released on bail when the man escaped. Detoc tive-Sergeant Manner and Detective Mercer went to the house where the wedding was to take place, and on the arrival of the woman and a man in a dimly-lighted room, rushed the latter,...
Snakes Abroad! [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 8 January 1914
Snakes Abroad ! Snakes are like fire and water among the contributing causes of injury and loss of life every sum mer in Australia. Fatalities from. snakebite are happily few in num ber, but the risk of fatal injury is always there when snakes are abroad, as they always are in hotI summer weather. Two recent occurrences of snakebite are re ported. On Friday, a lad named Robert Haggard, stepping over a log at Moorabool East, put his foot on h black snake which bit him on the leg. Haggard made a ligature of his bootlace, and tying this tight ly above the wound, hurried to his home close at hand. There his father used an antidote which he keeps always handy, and after wards drove his son to Heathoote where under medical treatment, the patient made good recovery. Snakes are reported to be very numerous about IIeathcote, where this is the third case of snakebite that has occurred this summer. At Selby, near Menzies, on Sunday, Rupert Thoren, aged 17, was bitten on the first finger of the...
Sleepy Liberals. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 8 January 1914
Sleepy :Liberals. -4- Ministers and Ministerial sup porters did splendid work' during the past session of the Federal Parliament. They well earned the hearty thanks and cordial congratulations.ot their support ers among the electors, by the ability and astuteness displayed by Ministers in handling a deli cate and difficult situation, and by the zeal, devotion, and self sacrifice displayed by Ministerial supporters all through a long and trying session, that enabled the Government to so far pave the way for a double dissolution, that we are within measurable dis tance of appeal to the Australian electors in this way. Liberals all, Ministers, their supporters in Parliament, and electors, are striving for this. double dissolu tion. Our Parliamentary repre sentatives under the heavy handi cap of the narrowest possible of majorities have done a great thing in creating the present situation, as regards the desired appeal to the people.

Edenhope. Mr N. D. McLean, Casterton, put up a record in house-buifding which was completed just before Christmas. Starting on Wednes day, December 10th to cut out, and commencing erection of the building on the following day, he left a five-roomed Queen Anne villa ready for occupation, and was on his way home to Caster ton. within a fortnight.

Thebuilding, was lined with spruce, canvas, and paper, and fitted with stamped steel ceil ings in each room and similar dado on each side of the passage. The exterior of the building pre sents a smart and up-to-date ap pearance, and the villa both inside and out, reflects credit on 'the builder.
