WOMEN'S INTERESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 14 March 1914
WOMEN'S INTERESTS. (By "Ambrosino.") To desoribe the modish figure first cud foremost we start with a desire to extend the width of tho figure a third down from the normal waist. Tho peg top outline gives you, as it were, n frame. What may be added is pretty diverse. We have the Tango ns a kind of opening note for the first appearance of autumn. Imagine gown in pretty blue charmeuso, and also imagine, a little more difficult, a Bkirt with a looped up train. What puzzles me is how to describe, by tho mere pen-note, the bodice and tunic. But omit the tunic in order to picture i bod 100, "V" decolletago, with a modi fied bertha of tulle. You will break (this at the Raglan shoulder»seam by carrying tho charmeuso to the neck, and where this and the tulle meet, there will be a bow. Thus we get so far as to see a bow either side of the neck, with tulle from each, gathering to a point just below the bust. I'll get rid of the sleeve in a line-it con tinues from the shoulder, takes the contou...

When the substance in which bac teria are present is heated to a high tempera tore they turn to spores, and in this form retain their vitality for a very long time. These spores cannot develop into bacteria until the sub stance in which tiiey are is at a fovar ii bio temperature and contains a con siderable proportion of moisture. The cream that has risen 011 the milk overnight must be skimmed off and warmed up to about lOOdeg. 1''.

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 14 March 1914
OF RURAL INTEREST ! Generally speaking phosphoric acid seems to bo the constituent most lacking in Australian soils. Tho benelicial results of adding .superphosphates have been prov ed, chieily in wheat growing. It has been the means of transforming wide tracts that were only sheep country into wheat producing areas. According to Mr Richardson, superin tendent of Agriculture, tho value of the addition of superphosphate can be ex tended in increasing tho stock-carry ing capacity of laud, that for various reasons cannot bo brought under the piough. To test the elfects of phos phates on grass land, four plots, each of half an acre, were marked out on natural pasture land at tho Kutherglen Experimental Farm. One aoro was treated with superphosphates at the rate of lewt per acre in 1912, and lc-wt per acre in 1913. A second plot was left unmanured, a third treated with 2 cwt of Thomas' pho.sphato in 1913, and a fourth with Sent of superphosphate and 10cwt of lime. Tho elfeots ol these ma...
