Hospital Benefit. The entertainment promoted by Messrs. Kelly and Niehoils, local lessees' of the Lyceum Pictures, with a view to replenish ing the coffers of the District Hospital, took place at the Contennial Hall on Friday night and was largely attended. Through the generosity of the gentlemen named the Hospital will, wo are pleased to learn, benefit to the extent of about £25, which sum will be doubled when the. Government subsidy is added to it. Such acts of | munificence on the part of citizens are so | raro that whon they do occur they are I keenly appreciated, and in this particular instance it is to be hoped that appreciation will assume, a practical turn. Ample opportunities for doing this are afforded, I seeing that similar entertainments are , given weekly-every Tuesday night-at the Centennial Hall. Mr. P. Callaghan, hon. sec. to the Hospital, 13 also worthy of much kudos for the strenuous efforts ho put forth to make the benefit a success."

HOME-MAKING IS WOMAN'S TRUE WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 February 1911
HOME-MAKING IS WOMAN'S TRUE WORK. If some one were to ask you, " What do you considei the most important, tiling for a girl to loarn ?" what should you answer '! 1 know what 1 should answer, quickly and unhesitatingly, " How to cook a square meal" (says a woman writer in "The Delineator"). And the longer I live and the more poorly cooked meals 1 eafi, the more emphatically do I think that the knowledge of how to cook plain meals well is the one great need of every girl and woman. Once I thought differently. Like many another girl with " ambitions" I had " a soul above such vulgar things as food." But even in those days I had an appetite which appreciated the things some one with a less lofty soul would cook for me. Then I would have said that the crying need in every woman's life wis a higher education. A knowledge ot everythinjj wnounea in Doou «u to n» too one thing needful, and I could never under stand those giifls and women who. were contented $ and happy doing the every'day ta...

WHY DRINKING DURING MEALS IS BAD. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 February 1911
WHY DRINKING DURING MEALS IS BAD. Although nothing is more healthful and to be recommended than to drink abund antly of fresh pure water between meals, it is anything but healthful to take it or any other liquid during a ijieal. Be cause if the food is mcistone'd with a drink the Cow of saliva is checked, the starch reaches the stomach unconverted, and the food is taken down without twin? masti cated. Then instead of having a soft finely-; minced mass to churn with the gastric juices, the stomach is filled with liquid, and the whole process is- hampered, and as a i natural consequence digestion is retarded, and " indigestion," that commonest of ali I our ills, is the result.

One of the fascinating r.omance3 of ^science has been told In the Law Courts this week (said "Lloyd's News" 'on December 18, 1910). How messages to-day can be sent half-way round the globe without the .medium of wires has been related by counsel, who had steeped himself in .this wondrous lore. Over the "pews" which the press usually occupy had ."been erected a complex apparatus of coils and wiros and switches-the in stallation by which messages will be ^received and transmitted during the progress of the case.

SURF-RIDING AT HONOLULU [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 February 1911
SURF-RIDING AT HONOLULU SuuF-BATiiiNu as a sport is, without doubt, one oL' our most popular diver sions, and notwithstanding the fact that it is attended witn au element of risk, 1 as Is evidenced by the recent calamity at Coogoe, it is safe to say that it has come to stay. Many of our regular j surf-b!)thers have become highly expert | in shooting the breakers, and their ex- | ploits in that fascinating pastime are at once the envy and the admiration of the novice. J.tnt, after all, we arc only children at the game. Centuries ago tho natives of Hawaii had attained a pitch of perfection at the art of surf riding which would leave our best ex ponent* far in I he rear, and the bronze skinned Hawaiian of to-day is just as expert as his ancestors. There, how ever, the surf-board, is in vogue, and almost incredible feats are performed by the expert riders. It Is quite a common thing Cor the surfer, standing on his board before the crest of a roller, to be carried over half a mile at Wai...
