The presumption i8 that he had in view what is called dual purpose breed. History, ho*. ever, has shown that this cross has not been such a success as would warrant to give it a further trial.

THE POULTRY FARM. -y Feed early in winter. Crushed maize can be fed in winter. Cleanliness must be observed in the ; fowlhouse. ' Straw from the stable makes good scratching material for fowls. Look out for roup. The first symp tom is a watery appearance in the eyes. j In the scratching shed bury the grain in the litter, so as to make the j birds work for it. To encourage egg production in winter, it is best to. keep your fowls in dry, warm scratching sheds. To kill worms in fowls, give fowls pills of thymol, consisting of one grain of thymol mixed in a soft bread pellet. For cramp in fowls' »lege, it is best to gently rub the limbs with eucal yptus oil, and keep the birds in a dry, warm shed. The egg is the most nutritions of foods.

WHY LEAFY POTATO PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 4 July 1914
WHY LEAFY POTATO PLANTS. The most nutritive part of tie PS" j tato, the part that gives to the po- j tato its excellent flavour, is the part j; that contains the greatest number el j starch cells. If anyone will cut a P&" j tato through the middle he will ^ I tice that the potato substance is ant t homogeneous. Around the outside o! j the- potato, just beneath the Sain, j a layer, separated from the | ]ajer by a vascular semi-fibrous pt- j tition that is risible on close eistsi- fj nation. This outer layer is called tie i corticei, and contains most o! tt! f starch of the potato. The best pots- | toes' have this cortieel layer tiifi | iostead of thin—that is, have flcfi f starch than the others. f The principal chemical element o' | starch is carbon. The potato gets all of its carbon from the ^ [ through the leaves, none ol it f the soil. The leaves have the poftf ' to dissociate the carbon from & ' carbon dioxide in the air, and sion ; much of this carbon in the tui...
RECIPE FOR SKIM-MILK CHEESE [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 4 July 1914
RECIPE FOR SKIM-MILK CHEESE The skim-milk must be left until it is quite thick, then well strained, which can be done by hanging it up in a clean linen bag. When drained dry add salt to taste, and rub the curds well to make them appear mealy. Stand in a warm place near a stove for a few days till they get gluey. Then, put into a saucepan, and fry with fresh butter till all is well melted. Run into a basin, and leave to get cool. It is then: ready for use. This recipe is used by many farmers' wives in Western Australia, and is well recommended. An important experimental trial was made on the L.N.W. Railway be tween Foleshill and Nuneaton with a petrel-driven rail car. The test was a complete success, -and foreshadows a revolution in _ railway locomotion. The car ia 60 feet in length and is of fall railway carriage gauge. It runs BxooofcMy on two sets of Wlssola, ami can be palled up very ETSSffitV. ' - .IS&Sf
USEFUL HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 4 July 1914
USEFUL HINTS. Burns and Scalds.—For a slight bum or scald apply equal parts of ; •olive oil and lime water, and wrap : the part at once in a sheet of cot-. j ton wool, fixing it. lightly with a bandage. At first the pain seems in- ^ creased, but this soon subsides. The wool may be left on for three or four J days. If lime water is not available olive oil may, be used alone, and flour or starch dusted over it. Aching Limbs.—Hot salt water is a j sovereign remedy for aching limbs ' caused by standing too much on the feet, or too prolonged walking, also ! for tired arms, hands and limbs ; after continued, exertion., or strain. ! The water should, be as hot as can well be borne without discomfprt, and have plenty of salt in it : but | too strong salt will make the flesh itcfi" and burn. For a sprained ankle, J bathe in hot salt water for half an hour, renewing the heat as it cools, . wrap in flannel, and repeat the hot bath in three or four hours until re-; lieved. ..

THE FARM. MOIST FACTS for DRY FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 4 July 1914
■■ » . .. MOIST PACTS for DRY FARMERS. Mr. Geo. L. Sutton, Agricultural Commissioner for the Wheat Bait, Western Australia, has issued the following :— - Moisture can be stored in the soil. - To store moisture the soil must be able to absorb the rain that (alls. Loose soil will absorb 40 per cent, of its weight in water. Compact soil will absorb only 20 per cent. Cultivation or tillage loosens the soil. Cultivation or tillage some time previous to the sowing1 season is known as fallowing. jF ALLOWING STORES MOISTURE. The longer the period between the initial operation of fallowing and that of planting, the greater will be the quantity of moisture stored. ' In dry districts fallowingr should commence early. The moisture stored by fallowing is wasted by weeds. Weeds can be destroyed by surface cultivation. . The moisture stored is easily lost by evaporation. : Much of this can be prevented bj mulching, or covering the moist soil with straw, litter, or loose dry soil. ' The only practi...

CHAPTER V. HOW THE BULL • UP SET JOSH HETHERINGTON'S PLANS. It was a b^utital May mpiiiing— the first of the month/ ljut. "eyery. ) thing was unusually forward for the time of the year—the trees in Wynth shay Park were beginning to burst into leaf. Twenty years- h,ad elapsed since Joshua Hetherington wooed Sabina Ossington. -The trees that had been saplings then were now full grown ; the old honse had changed little, save that the ivy which then covered it had grown thicker ; the garden- look ed much the same as it had done when the stranger from over the seas took possession. But there was a change in the master of the house as he stood looking out of the win dow, as he had done so long ago, over the gardens and the park. Twenty years ago Josh had black hair ; now it was iron-grey. His fea tures had become more hawk-like ; his face, which had never worn a par ticularly pleasant expression, was now harsh and forbidding ; moreover, | there was a crafty expression in his eyes which to...

S&ake your SSistricl Known. Concerning some parts of the district news comes hut seldom. This is not entirely our fault; we have no miracu lous pow. i- of knowing what is happen- j ing at all the places within our area of circulation. It. is the fault of residents in the silent places. Will some man or woman take the matter in hand and cause the silence to cease. If no one else is doing it for your district, will you try on the^e lines? Send accounts-of public and social events in your township and neighbour hood, such as weddings, deaths, acci dents, conceits, matters touching dis trict industries, etc. Write the names of persons very distinctly. Don't hothoi- about grammar or spelling ; it's the editor's work to look after those ti illes. The barest skeleton i is enough. Write otdv on one side of the paper.

PART 3. CHAPTER IV.—(Continued.) "I am sorry Aunt Mary is out," she said, saying the verj thing she ought not to have said, as it- gave him an opening to speak on the sub ject she wished to avoid. - "I am glad Mrs. Jermain is out," as I jhave something I wish to say to you, 7 replied Josh; as.he seated him self near her, looking at the refined but sad face, and from her- his eyes wandered to the lovely old garden and beyond it to the well-wooded park. Then before his mine's eye there rose a'.vision of a rustic bench at one side of a field-path, and a girl shabbily "dressed, who listened with blushing face, but the light of joy on it, to his words of love. That had been his first wooing, very, different from this ; then he roused himself. It seemed to him there had, l>een'a long pause, but in reality it had not oc cupied more than a minute. for that picture to stamp itself qxl. his mind. - "I daresay your father told you that I had aaked his permission to make1; you an offer of ma...
