Household Hints. In -washing paint, always remember to wet the under-part first, so, when "vvasmnrg the .upper, any water running flown will leave no streaky marks. Save all the orange peel you have. Dry It in a cool oven and store away in paper ibags. Then some morning, when your fire will not burn, throw a bit gt peel on and watch the effect. If you want to clean rusty flrelrons you should rub them well with sweet oil, and leave them wet for a day or two.; Then rub them with unslacked lime. This will remove the rust, and then, you may polish your irons just as usual. \Vlven making 'Yorkshire [pudding and pancakes, mix the flour with water Instead of milk, break the egg Into the 'basin, and l>eat all together thoroughly. It will ibe found much lighter and cheaper, less milk being required. Before taking apples, pour boiling water over them. Put a little water In the dish they are b -k vi in. Cook slowly.

FOOD REQUIRED BY HENS. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 28 March 1914
FOOD REQUIRED BY HENS. One of the findings of science on the subject of poultry-keeping Is that a hen rsquires one-fiftieth of her weight in food every day to maintain her Ibodily vigor. So, if a hen weighs Gib. 4oz. thy daily allowance of food ought to be 2oz. But that allows noth ing .for the manufacture of the egg. A hen in full lay Is asumed to lay lOoz. in a 'Vek. As 60 per cent, of an egg is water, that means that at lenBt 4oz. more food must be allowed. A safe rule is to allow laying hens about 3oz. of food per day. In con fined runs, much more care has to be taken to give a well-balanced ration than "when the fowls run free. In the latter case the birds seldom become too 'fat, and they keep themselves in health! iby eating a variety of green food, which acts ns a corrective to all sorts of complaints to which other fowls are Bubject.
