IT HAPPENED IN THE DICTIONARY. A zouave, with a zebra, On a zero night in June, Wooed a Zulu on a zebu, 'Neath a zingaroguish moon; In his zeal he strummed a zither, - ' Galled as witness Mister Zeus, As he told his Zulu Lulu That he loved her like the deuce. "You're a zany," she retorted, . "For your name begins with Z, There's another zone for lovers, That looks very goodto me"; Then the zebu zig-zagged onward, s;Left the Zouave in a daze, While, the fickle Zulu maiden Sought a husband in the A's. This is the time of year, cold and windy, when you should give any red nosed man the benefit, of the doubt. A trained ostrich recently discon certed its exhibitor at a country show by continually endeavoring to break away. from, all-restraint and to climb over the footlights into the orchestra.

BARE-LIMBED GIRLS. CHICAGO SOCIETY SHOCKED. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 15 July 1914

BARE-LIMBED GIRLS. CHICAGO SOCIETY SHOCKED. Tlie revels of the Daphne Greek I pageant, in which many bare-limbed, I airily-clad girls and several male dan cers, in similar classic freedom of garb, took part, formed a much-dis cussed topic of conversation among members of the General Federation of Women's Clubs. The pageant took place at an Art institute, and no men witnessed it except those who partici pated. All the members of the Federation agreed as to the artistic beauty of the spectacle, but there waB a con siderable variance of opinion as to the propriety of the. proceedings and the lack of drapery which character- ! ised it. One delegate to the Federation de clared that the costumes worn by the girls in the pageant were modest in comparison with some of the ex treme fashionable effects worn by cer tain delegates at a dance which re presented the pursuit of Daphne by Apollo.

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 15 July 1914

&& ft KITCHEN WRINKLES. If flowers have come by post they will freshen up wonderfully if their stems are placed in hot water for a little while before arranging them in vases. Before eating an orange, soak it in hot water for half an hour. The skin will loosen and come off easily, and the orange will he as sweet as if freshly picked. 1 To remove labels from bottles, wet the label with water and hold it over a flame for a second or two. The steam quickly penetrates the label 1 ana softens the gum or paste. ,To clean sultana^ quickly, place the fruit in a floured cloth. Tie the ends of the cloth and shake well for five minutes. The stalks will fall off and the fruit will be clean for using. If, when making boiled starch, a piece of soap is left in, it will be found during the • ironing process that not only will the iron slip -along easily, but a beautiful glossy effect will be produced.

Tangil South. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 22 July 1914

Tangil South. About two months ago, a move ment was set going to form a tennis club at Tangil Sth., and great credit is due to the people here (both young and old) for the way they came forward and helped to com-, plete a very up-to-date tennis court. The ladies, in particular, took a very great interest in it. Besides pro viding refreshments at all the work ing bees, they were to be seen swing ing the axe and piling up logs—till the place around the court looks quite civilized. A couple of weeks ago the court was opened for prac tice, and no fewer than thirty mem bers rolled up—some to play th^ir first game of tennis, others who were old hands at the game; and it is needless to say the court was kept occupied till night forced the weary "sports" home. The club in tends having an opening day later on, when the weather is fine ; and, judging by the interest taken in the club, this should be a great success. The total number of members is about 40, and others are still coming in. So, ...

Willow Grove. The official opening of the new (Tangil) rifle range took place on Wednesday last. Among those pre sent was Mr Jas. Bennett, M.H.R., who performed the opening ceremony. The shooting opened with a match between Mr Bennett and Capt. Robins, the latter winning. The ladies' nomina tion match was won by Mr Fred. Wilson, with a score of 32 (four marksmen secured 31), while the ladies' match resulted in a win for Miss Wilson (Trafalgar), with Mrs W. Riley second. Refreshments were provided by the ladies, and this item in the afternoon's programme was not the least appreciated. Considering the weather conditions, which were decidedly unfavourable, the function passed off very successfully. In the evening, Mr Bennett ad dressed a meeting of electors in the Public Hall- The speaker was accorded a very attentive hearing, and his re marks were punctuated with applause. A dance, which followed, was atten ded by about 20 couples and proved very enjoyable.
