HOMELY FARE. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 18 February 1911

HOMELY FARE. ..One method of stewing meat slowly with vegetables and stock is called braising. It is a very useful and effec tive form of cookery. If one has a .braising, pan, .which most homely cooks have not, it .can be, used. If not, a saucepan or a stewpan with a well-fit-: ting, lid :may. be made to serve. .First, the braising pan. It has a deep cover, on which live charcoal is, placed ;' "the pan is airtight; or almost so, and! the food braised absorbs whatever flavor the cook may wish to give it. In order, to effect this, the cook must place in the pan whatever vegetables ber re cipe may dlrcct. If a saucepan is us?d,; means must be taken to ensure that the lid fits tightly. A flat iron is sometimes placed on the lid. ) The meat to be braised is placed on a foundation of vegetables, dripping, and stock. Neither vegetables nor meat must be covered with the liquid. If you are in a hurry you cannot braise, as the whole of the cooking is. done by the steam arising from, the liqui...

Not long ago, dining at a Paris resta^i ! rant famous i'or its cuisine, tho proprie ' tor pointed out to mo an elderly man whom the waiters treated with marked courtesy. "Ho is our most honored guest," re marked 'mine host, "yet ho is neither wealthy nor titled, but lie is one of tho 'last survivors of a past generation that could order and digest ;\ good dinner I". Tho proprietor emphasised tho word digest, thereby giving me to understand that if the menus of our dinners are now adays considerably shortened, it is be civuso we no longer are able to do justice to a good square, meal. According to him the "gourmand," or even the "gour met," is becoming a thing of the past. Nor can it be denied that the so-called pleasures of the table have of late under gone an evolution. Our .great grand fathers, whose dinners on great occasions consisted of four soups, two' kinds of jfisli, twenty entrees, four roasts, and half-a dozen sweets, would stagg...

Splendid Fruit. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 18 February 1911

Splendid Fruit. \ ' ' -. ?A magnificent specimen of a " Twenty Ounce" cooking apple was brought in by Mr. Len Webster during the week, grown on his farm at Tallwood. The fruit, which had been blown off, was not quite ripe, but was perfectly sound and healthy. It measured 16 inches in cir cumference and weighed 24:}ozs. As the name of tree (Twenty Ounces) im plies, the variety is one which grows to a big size, but this sample was something extraordinary. It was grown on a four-year old tree, and was acknowled ged by all who saw it to be the biggest that had come under their notice-in fact, served up, it represented a meal for a large family.-Blayney " West Macquarie." We have been shown some splendid samples of a peach called the " Alberto," grown by Mr. W. Leggatt, of the Rail way Department.

They have this much In common: both are due to bad shoeing, V/hlch gives, rise to pressure or bruis ing, but there the resemblance ends. In the majority of cases corn In the horse is due to bruising of the angle of the solo by the heel of the shoe-a bruise of the sensitive foot structures under the horn, which shows Itself by stain ing the horn red, just as a bruise on the human body shows a staining of the'skin above It.

I recall this Tact sometimes, and rub my eyes as I try to realise how far we have pro gressed beyond this primitive Ideal! Photography Is now an art, and "Art In Photography" Is a cant phrase. Yet I wonder sometimes when I look | through the pages of Illustrated papers whether the clinnge Is wholly for the . better. I wonder also when my friends send me their latest photographs whether It Is really more satisfactory that the pictures should show the sitters, not ns they are, but as they would like to be. Our grandfathers and grandmothers used to go to be photographed in much , the same spirit as they would go to the dentist.
