My girls attend the Windsor Convent School, and their heads have been shown as an example of good, the effect of Pedic Pomade.

THE TIME FOR CHEESE MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 January 1914

THE TIME FOR CHEESE MAKING. The best cheese is made in the summer, when the cows are feeding cn good pastures, but when made under scientific conditions in con junction with judicious application of starter, it is possible to make good cheese at all times. An important point in the making of cheese is to vary the process of manufacture slightly according to the time of the year and the quality of the milk.

THE WRONG PLACE FOR FICTION [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 January 1914

THE WRONG PLACE FOR FICTION Mr. Irvin S. Cobb, the American writer of short stories, returning from a. trip in the "Western States, found that a close friend of liis had fallen into the. hands of the law. He hur ried down to the friend's: lawyers. ."Why, Jack is the dearest, kindest, must nonest man in the world!" he said. "You must call me as a wit ness to his character." "Not while I'm his lawyer!" was the reply. "I know just what would happen. The other man's lawyer would ask your occu pation. And you'd say, 'I'm a writer of fiction.' And the lawyer would get up and stand over you and look into the dark recesses of your heart for a time. And by-and-by, despairing of finding one sweet, aspiring thought in you, he would turn to the jury. And he would exchange an intelli gent, liberrous smile with the twelve. And then, he would sit down, and, without even troubling to look in your direction, he would say, 'That is quite enough, Mr. Cobb! You may stand down!'"

ARRANGING THE HOME GROUNDS [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 January 1914

ARRANGING THE HOME GROUNDS Bfiforo building a houoo most ppy sons recognise the necessity of hav ing aeficae plan of i'ie structure. Comparatively few pet;°e. however, realise the desirability of planning the home grounds. And yet the latter may have quite as much to do -with making a home as the former. In a short article it is impossible to give more than a few general princi ples. These, if considered in their proper relations to the situation of the building and the character of the sur roundings, may lead to pleasing re sults. The location vf walks and drives should be mai'.e a mat'er of convenience. Neither tha wake* nor the drives are ornamental m them selves; hence they should not be more numerous than the uses of the daily life call for. Curved waUts and drives are often more pleasing than straight ones, especially "wherj. riie grounds are large. The curves, however, should be easy and natural, not short and kinky. The home grounds may be compared with a picture in which th...

Groups of such plants on either side of the entrance gates are usually very pleas ing. Avoid planting single shrubs or bushes or other plants promiscuously about the lawn. The pleasing distinc tive character of a place can be se cured only by leaving large open places, where nothing but green grass is allowed to grow. If the whole place is dotted full of single speci mens and small clumps, the effect Is patchy and fussy, where it should be dignified and natural. Specimen plants, if used at all, should be plant ed sparingly, and not set in the most conspicuous places. Flower-bed...

AMUSEMENTS. 1 "GREAT MEN'S SWEETHEARTS*' Some • men have undoubtedly be lieved-with Thackeray th»t it _is bettor to love foolishly than not at all; that they have practiced this philosophy is proved by their mem oirs and biographs: Hazlitt the brilliant loved the/ |p erf, coarse daughter of his- landlady. He wrote her a letter which she never an swered and: he said that, "the rolling years of eternity would not fill upt the blank that her failure to anBwer that letter caused.''' A1 practical Scottish girl Charlotte Carplenter won Walter Scott's love. She not only hated literature, but objected' to writing- to him. He wrote her saying "You must write me once a week.'1 She replied, *'You are quite out of your senses, and you. need) not plut in so many, 'musts' in | -your Iettors. If ;s beginning too earty."

SDcpparion 3?eu>s • Published'. Monday and Thursday Evenings. MONDAY, JANUARY 5. 1914 It is, perhaps, fortunate that the whole of the watershed of the Goul burn River has been transferred to the State Rivers and Water Supply Commission, which body is sup posed to have full control over it. Past experience has shown the neces sity for the undivided authority of the- Commission which is vitally interested in the preservation of the purity of the supply, as well as main taining it at its highest possible level It has been seen how strong vested interests have been in connection with dredging operations. If the report of the Dredging Inquiry Board, the labors of which will be concluded this week, does not recommend the relegation to' the Commission of all applications for dredging leases on the Goulburn or its tributaries for in quiiy, its work will almost have been in vain. Indeed, the recommenda tion might go further in order to provide for regular inspection by officers of the Com...
