CORRESPONDENCE. (To the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 31 July 1908
CORRESPONDENCE. (To the Editor) Sir,-I have read >with interest the three letters that Lave appeared in your journal in connection with the Gibbon's building fund. As I was one of the first to subscribe to the fund and one amongst . a few other workers who spent a good man}' Saturday afternoons working at the-building, so I think that I should ' have a little say in the matter. Your correspondent "Jus titiae" asks "Why are the people for whom the'house was built not yet in it,? " That is very easily answered as upon inquiry I find that'owing to the generosity of Mr Casey. Mr Gibbons and family have been living rent free in a nice little cottage with more conveniences as regards water, etc., than they ".would have had in the new house and of course the latter is still oir the same ground and not likely to take wings and fly because the people are not in it.

Mark Twain as Reporter. Mark* Twain, at a publishers' dinner in New York, talked of his reporting days in Virginia City. "We were trying a horse thief ono day," ho said, "and all of a sudden the big. burly scoundrel pulled off his boot anu threw it at the judge. It was^ a heavy boot, too. It was studded with hob nails. "I am still rather proud of the way I* wrote up that little incident, doing it neatly, and at the same time gotting back on a rival reporter whom I dis liked. I got it all in one paragraph something like this: " 'Suddenly the blackguardly thief, pulling off his boot, hurled it with all his might straight at the judge's head. This desperate act might have been at tended with most disastrous conse quences, but, fortunately, the missile only struck a reporter, so that 110 harm was done.' "

DIGESTION AND THE COOK. A MODEL MENU. "All fooJ well cooked and rightly pre pared i3 digestible by normal people, if the chef knows how to arrange his menu." - With' these- words an official of the Savoy Hotel yesterday (Gth May) Runimod up to a representative of the "Daily Mail" the question of indi/estion and long menus. "Some chefs know lit tle of the chemlcul lncompatabllity of ncMs and starches and albumens in their materials, but the experienced culi nary artist knows by instinct, almost, how to choose his dishes so that dys pepsia may be avoided. "There is one great rule to fol'ow : Each 'heavy' dish must be succeeded by a 'light' one, so that the digestive or gans may have a fair chance. When three or four heavy, thi:k sauces or coarse meats come together, you may know that the chef is not ent'rely com pe ent. Here is an example of a neatly-balanced and easily digestible, yet appetising, dinner recently served here: "Oysters or caviare to begin with. These lay no strain on t...
