PIGS FOR BACON. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 10 January 1914
PIGS FOR BACON. Certain modificleations in tho moth* ods of killing andi preparing pigs for, bacon have been neceaeary in recent y'ears to meet the demands of the consumer and curer, Among these has been the muovemnent in favor of less fat and more lean, what is proe ferred now being a tasty, mild-flavor ed, somewhat lean bacon, which is finely streaked with fat and of firm texture. It is occasionally found in dealing with carcases for either pork or ba* con that there exists an abnormal condition in the texture of fibre of the flesh, It is soft, yields to preap sure, is flabby, and possesses an un natural greasiness, - This class of flesh invariably cures badly, and pro duces inferior bacon.

COMMENTS WISE AND OTHERWISE. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 10 January 1914
COMMENTS WISE AND OTHERWISE. There are certain people in the world whom the more you think of the less you think of them, Surely it isn't extraordinary to get pearls out of a matchbox. Lots of girls have got diamonds out of ;nugs before now. According to a Paris paper, "Soventy per cent, of the French people live in one room." But it must be a jolly big room. A Russian dwarf of 4ft, has, we learn, fallen in love with a St. Peters. burg lady of Oft. 21in, That's not fall ing in love-that's climbing up .to it. "It is rare indeed," says a contem Dorary, "that a householder can get a shook from his electrical installa tion," He generally gets that when the bill comes along,

NEWLY-ENGAGED GIRLS. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 10 January 1914
NEWLY-ENGAGED GIRLS. Why is it that a newly-engaged girl is a thorn in the flesh to all her dise. engaged sister woimen? To begin with-observes a lady correspondent (who is not newly-en. gaged)-she is odiously sorry for you because you don't happen - to be a betrothed person also, You may have heaps of chances, may know that you are really and truly quite nice, but the most ordinary girl who ever seiz. eil upon her first proposal will patron ise you until you feel almost ready to accept anyone, When she isn't irritating you, the newly-engaged girl is rather funny over the ring more especially, This sacred object for a few weeks appar' ently occupies the place of sun, moon, stars and all light, If it can be said to flash, it does on every conceivable occasion. Anid then, in other ways, she is so hopelessly selfish, But perhaps the personal vanity of the engaged girl enrages her femin ine acquaintances more than any of her numerous failings. To havo to stand by and behold an insignifi...
