THE VALUE OF BEESWAX. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 9 April 1914

I I THE VALUE OF BEESWAX. Beeswax is gradually going up in price. 'The bar-frame system of keep ing bees has largely to answer for this. Under the old style, to oibtain the honey, the combs were destroyed; that meant that there was always a certain quantity of wax to be placed on the market. Under the old regime, beekeepers never required the wax; but, under the new, nearly every grain is carefully husbanded, for the purpose of converting it into founda tion comb. As the new system of teekeeping extends the less wax there will be in proportion to put to com mercial use. Nevertheless, the de mand for wax is steadily on the in crease. It, therefore, becomes the question: Will the production of wax pay? There are localities where the honey is of an inferior quality; in fact, almost unsaleable at any price. Is it not worth while in those locali ties to try the experiment of wax pro ductlon? Bees can be compelled to produce more wax than they need, and | the supply of wax will always fin...

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 9 April 1914

KITCHEN WRINKLES. Wring chamois out of soapy water without rinsing. When it dries it is soft and serviceable, instead of stiff. A troublesome corn can be eased by a poultice composed of a thin slice of lemon worn over it during the day. Sprinkle a few tablespoonfuls of salt over the kitchen fire after it is made up, and it will keep going for hours without requiring any attention. Alter boiling salt beef leave two or three cooked carrots in the liquor til' cold. The carrots will absorb the salt, and the liquor can be used for soup. To prevent moths from invading drawers and boxes where woollen goods are stored, sprinkle a little tur pentine in the drawers or boxes every three months. - ; I£ two or three lumps of sugar are . placed in kettles and teapots, they, will absorb all moisture and will prevent ruct and the "fusty" smell which is the result of their being left half-dry.^ For a disinfectant for a sink, pour down a gallon o£ boiling water mixed with two tablespoonfuls of soda a...

Echoes of the Opera. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 9 April 1914

Echoes of the Opera. "What did you hear at the opera?" inquired Mrs. Sanders, when her Hus band returned from London. "You wrote me Mary was going to have a box full of friends last night." "She did so," said Mr. Sandors. "Well, let me see. I heard that the young man Henry's oldest girl Is en gaged to has two thousand pounds salary, and that he'll never save a penny of it after lie marries her. And I heard that if Mrs. Leonard doesn't at tend to her son before it's too late he won't have a friend left among either the young fellows or the girls.

"BE A WOMAN." [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 9 April 1914

"BE A WOMAN." "Be a man" is an injunction which implies that one is endeavoring to aim at achieving all that is best in manhood. No one would dream of stimulating a person's ambition to loftier ideals by bidding him "Be a gentleman." Likewise, there should be no oltence in the use of the word "woman." The dignity of the word, no less than its homeliness, enables it to be applied not to any particular sections which can be marked off as having more of the good things of this world than the others, but to all, from the Queen on her throne to the humblest in the land who is- contri buting something through her woman liness towards .making the commun ity around her richer 'by her devotion to duty, her tenderness, her self-sacri lice, and her love.

PATIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 9 April 1914

PATIENCE. "To know how to wait," says Do Maistre, "is the secret of success." Cyrus Field was ten years in laying the Atlantic cable. The first time ho tried to lower it the great rope snap ped in mid-ocean, and when they grap pled it and brought it to the surface, it slipped away from them, and was gone. Not until he had tried thirty times was the tireless patience of the inventor rewarded. In life's school one o£ the hardest lessons is to learn to wait patiently. It has been said that speech has been given to women to conceal their thoughts, but it seldom even con ceals their thoughtlessness. For six months a vicar in the North has been trying to get a curate. "We know many old maids who have been trying for years. Most things we haven't the slight est right to are rather pleasant.

A VICAR'S "DRINK POINTS." [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 9 April 1914

A VICAR'S "DRINK POINTS." The Rev. George Denyer, vicar of St. Paul's Church, Blackburn, issued some novel "drink points" in his parochial letter for November. He stated:— The man who can afford to get drunk is too rich. The best thing to keep in the beer bottle is the cork. • If you get the best of whisky it will get the best of you. The man who tried to drown his sorrow in drink found that it could swim. It costs a man more to have a seat in a public-house than to have a seat in the church. It takes a long time- to age whisky, but it won't take long for whisky to age you.

CHAPTER XXVIII. The Cause Celebre Ends. Public curiosity had been whetted by the first days ot' the trial. Tlio whole story, from first to last, was so extraordinary and romantic a one. Hot arguments and altercations oc cupied those of the public who lia;l j sufficient leisure to discuss the events i of the passing hour. Such a .ro mance had not been crystallised into actual, real fact for many a long day. ! Wars and rumors of wars were in abeyance for the time being. Over the family meals, from the highest \o the lowest in society, the Montamir case was excitedly, sometimes pas sionately discussed. Many espoused the cause of the supposed murderer, and, against all moral or religious law, upheld that justifiable homicide, if in deed Charles Daunce were actually dead, was to be lauded rather than condemned. Others, rigid in their ac cepted canons of right and wrong, de fended the victim of Lord Montamor's summary revenge—held that every unit had the right to act for his or her own be...

CHAPTER XXVII. A Bolt from the Blue. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 9 April 1914

CHAPTER XXVII. A Bolt from the Blue. The trial began at the Old Bailey some months after the magistrates liad decided to submit the charge to a superior court. N , Within the court the atmosphere was heavy. The lamps burned sullen ly, Bhadows gathered in corners, yet there was little .about the groups in the well of the court suggestive of the fact that a man, and a peer of the realm, was about to be tried for his life. The many barristers, ali who could spare time from their own affairs to he present at this causo celebre, were there, talked with much animation, if in subdued tones, their heads together like so many cauli flowers—some with their hands clasp ed under their gowns looking Vastly like ravens or big crows. Now and then a laugh made Gwendolen, seat ed in a corner of the- court, Miss Dura ford at her side, wince and quiver. Ronald, who was somewhere on the , back benches, had tried to prevent her from being present. But she was firm. Her anguish that she had been the actu...

The Great Montamor Case. By' ALICE M. DIEHL, Authoress of "The Knave of Hearts/' ' CHAPTER XXVI. "Rex v. James Gilbert. Before many hours were over the Press blazed with paragraphs relating to the arrest ol Robert, Lord Monta mor, on a charge of murder. Sensa tional headings met the public eye from the hoards which set forth the contents of the many newspapers. "The claimant arrested on a charge of murder," ran one. "Tragic de velopment of the Montamor Case," was the heading of another. "The Montamor arrest for a crime," was the dark hint of an evening paper. Robert, standing white, motionless, while the cab was being fetched to convey him to Bow-street, thought with a shuddering horror of Netta and his mother. He must send a tele gram. In his first interview with his solicitor he would give no account •of the substance of his defence until a •telegram had been despatched. "1 am detained lor a time on an absurd charge, which I can absolute ly disprove," he wired to his darling. "All...

. A NEW CHUM IN AUSTRALIA. Mr. Morley Roberts, the well-known author, has been detailing in the cur rent number of the "Strand Maga zine" some reminiscences of his life In Australia and America. As a lad of nlneteep he quarrelled 'wii» his father and took a steerage passage to Aus tralia in an old iron ship called the Hyderabad. The sea had always ap pealed to. .him, and -Instead of idling his time away he spent the long months consumed in the voyage in working as if he were one of the crew. The officers were white, but the crew wjre Hindus, Malays and See dee boys, and during the voyage not only did he acquire a knowledge of seamanship which stood him in good stead later In his strange chequered career, but he also obtained a working knowledge of the lingua franca of the Eastern seas.

A PARABLE OF MODERN BABYLON. There was a boy, and his father said unto him, "My son, work to day, for the time oometh when you must leave school."

But on the morrow the youth said, "I will go after lunch, for my stomach crieth out for food." And so he dal lied with the flesh-pots till 1.30. And when he showed himself at the office, behold the vacancy was filled by a Scot, who pandered not to his stom ach—yea, even one who bore on his 'scutcheon, "Do it now."

What Was His Reward? [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 9 April 1914

What Was His Reward? The occupants of the railway car riage were listening with joyful inter est to the tales of the young man in the corner. He had been all over the world several times, apparently, and liis adventures had been marvellous. "Coolness and courage are the things," he was saying. "Take this case: We were in Central AfHca, tra velling among cannibal tribes. One evening, when we camped, I had strolled oft while my men prepared supper, when suddenly above a rock in front of me I saw the heads of three natives who were watching me. What was I do do? My gun was at the oamp. To turn back meant having ..pears through me. In a moment I aecided. CloBe by were some stones. Pretending I didn't see the niggers, I bent down as if to examine the stones; then, quick as lightning, I picked up three of them and flung them with all my force at their heads. Every one found its mark, and the three natives dropped like sheep. I always take a good aim, and it served me well then." > iThe...

The Supreme Test. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 9 April 1914

The Supreme Test. By A. G. Greenwood. "I'm no Mr. Carnegie meself," con fessed Mrs. Knoyle, my landlady, apol ogetically. She had asked humbly if I could pay her only a little on account, "An' 'ere's a pipe; p'raps you might find a job in the adver-tise-ments," she suggested. "Good-night, Mr. Smith." "You're a 'brick," I said—and she'd been too kind to me to let me feel shamed at my husky voice. "I'll pay somehow—or I'll go. But I'll never forget, Mrs. Knoyle. The thirty shil lings I owe you shall be a first charge on what I earn." Thirty shillings! The sum meas ures things up. The gutter was very close. For six weeks I'd rehearsed in "The Ruby Girl" without payment— walking on in the crowd. " The play had failed. In a week the notices were up. In a fortnight the company —all but the lucky "stars"—were stalking the Strand. I got nothing out of it. But I met Eva—Eva Bradley. She was in the chorus—daughter of a barrister—an orphan, brought up to idleness. In my pocket lay her last let...
