Public Opinion. THE RECENT SHIRE ELECTIONS. [TO THE EDITOR.] [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 February 1911

Public Opinion. THE RECENT SHIRE ELEC- , TIONS. | [To the Editor.] Sir — That grand, old-established custom of sending representatives of the people to meet other representa tives in conference to make laws for the good of the people lias again been exercised in connection with the election of our shire councillors, and the result, though perhaps satistac tory to the electors who vored for the winning candidates, shows many lamentable features. First and fore most is the lack of enthusiasm shown by the electors themselves. This enthusiasm, this sense of civic re bponsibility, the foundation of the structure of our glorious system of representative government, by its absence on 28th January, diaws the pye of disappointment on a large proportion of the ratepayers. 1 should be surprised to find that more than forty per cent; of voles were cast in the Lockhart Shire, and at some polling centres I am siuc the per centage was much lower thau that. Take the figures of B Riding in which the...

'Why, dearie, what's the matter?' inquired the surprised mother. ''Why don't you want to study?' ' 'Cause it's no use,' was the im pulsive answer; 'it's no use at all. I can't never learn spelling.

NEEDLEWORK HELPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 February 1911

NEEDLEWORK HELPS. in cutting garments it is some times more rapid to fasten the patt ern in place by means of weights than pins. A few paper clips are in valuable in the sewing basket, for they hold together scraps, pieces of patterns, and bits of lace. Some thumb tacks, such as artists and draughtsmen use, will be found an invaluable help in the~sewing-room. You will need them to fasten long gores of slippery silk to your lap board'or cutting table.

THE CHALK AND THE SPONGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 February 1911

THE CHALK AND THE SPONGE. A piece of chalk, broken from the white face of a cliff, had fallen upon the seashore within reach of the tide. Twice a day the waves came rolling up -the beach for a little while, and then rolled away again. One morning, when a very heavy wave had dashed up the strand; it left . behind, ; on its return journey to tlie seaj a small sponge. ? 'Hullo!' said the Chalk to. itself,, 'here's an^ absorbing ^companion.' Then, it added aloud : 'May I ask, little Sponge, .what' object you have in life, because objects in life are things .that .interest me very much?' 'I devote my time,' replied: the Sponge, 'to absorbing almost any thing that the sea may bring me/' 'Is that all?' laughed the Chalk in a rather contemptuous way. 'I should have expected you to be more ambitious.' 'Oh, I have lots of ambition,' retorted the Sponge, 'but not for fame. To acquire is my ' delighc. Let fame take care of itself.' 'Well, well!' replied the Chalk. 'Now, I am just dying to make ...

FROGS AND TOADS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 February 1911

FROGS AND TO^DS. I notice, says a writer in the 'Animals' Friend,' that many children, when they come upon a frog or a toad, are frightened of it, and I am often told of children who tease and hurt them. Both are fool ish, but the children who hurt and tease them are cruel and cowardly as well as foolish. , — .. lne frog would not hurt you, arid, / in fact;: he, is a useful little friend to man. Besides being harmless, he helps to keep the streams clean when he is in the tadpole stage, and when he is grown up he does good work for the gardener by eating the slugs and flies. Perhaps you have been frightened of him' because he jumped unexpect edly out of the grass; but next time you see one you can just remember that 'it's only a dear little frog,' quite' harmless, and you can look quietly at him, arid see how pretty he is; with his streaks and spots. People have been known to make quite pets of frogs, and have them come into the house and feed from their hands. But it is-no kindne*}:...

THE EMPTY BASKET [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 February 1911

THE EMPTY BASKE1 The following little story I came across in the 'Child's Companion.' I think you will like it. 'There's two sides to it, you see,' said the storekeeper. 'I've got my rent to pay, and my little mouths to fill. And you am t the only one that wants goods for nothing. There's dozens. Some can't pay, andsome won't . ' ' ~ 'We can't,' said Bessie, faintly, with a pitiful glance up in his face. She had shared a dry crust with two little brothers that morning; and this was their only chance of dinner. ' Anyliow,' continued the store keeper, 'you can just tell mother 1 can't let her have anything more till something's paid.' And he turned away to ariother customer, who had just seated herself at the counter. Bessie stood a moment, as ? if un able to believe ; then she too turned arid slowly left the shop, her empty basket on her arm. 'They simply swarm, Mrs. Good-: vrin,' remarked the storekeeper, as he. looked after her; 'and likely enough nine-tenths of 'em can pay as^well...

A COSMOPOLITAN CITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 February 1911

? A COSMOPOLITAN CITY. ; Antwerp is interesting, says Mer cator, in the 'Magazine of Com merce,' not merely. on its own ac count, but because, it is . the commer cial centra of .that' remarkable coun try, Belgium. Belgium was well de scribed in the advertisements at the Brussels Exhibition as 'Europe iri immature. .Being sandwiched in between different countries, and on one of the highways of travel, Bel gium is necessarily cosmopolitan ; and probably' no toWn in the' world is more cosmopolitan — so far as re lates to its standing population, and not as regards passing crowds— than Antwerp. Indeed, it appears 'always to have been largely cosmopolitan, for in the sixteenth century there were over 1000 foreign firms estab lished there, and it was then the rich est town in Christendom, its mer chants contracting loans with most of the European potentates. Inci dentally it may be said that in the present day the Antwerp -bpurse is an important market for foreign Go vernment and Municipa...

2,000 PHOTOS A SECOND. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 February 1911

2,000 PHOTOS A SECOND. Apart from its spectacular inter est and educational value, the cine matograph is a most useful appara tus for scientific investigation, al lowing such phenomena as are too rapid or too slow for direct visual inspection to be decomposed into various phases. .'A French scientific man, Liicien Bull, of Paris, has, states Alfred Gradenwitz, in 'Knowledige.' de veloped a most ingenious method which' greatly increases the scope of the cinematograph by augment ing its speed — that is, the number of pictures taken within: a second— as 'tiTe~'or$nary^' ' apparatus^^ takes from thirty to fifty instantaneous pictures during, a second, this high speed cinematograph, in fact,, en ables as ; many as 2,000 views to .be taken during this short interval. It is thus possible; to decompose, the most, fugitive phenomena, such as the motion of insect wings, as far as can be desired, and by projecting the component pictures on a scr en in' more or Jess, rapid succesion, to study t...

Random Readings. A SOUTH SEA GEM. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 February 1911

Random Readings. ? A * *' A SOUTH SEA GEM. As the ship approached Tahiti, the inland grew like some lovely, faint-toned vision into full reality. From what seemed a heap of cumu lus clouds lying low on the horizon, it resolved itself into a mighty mass of ' rock, broken into sharp, almost crystalline fractures, and clothed frhm fnnf. nrnurn nrifli wi'tri/1 trofYa. tation. In shadow the gorges were a shimmering purple, or, in the fur ther distance, a smokyblue ; while the distant clouds clung to the peaks or drifted slowly down the valleys. But words are futile ; its charm ut terly eludes description. The moun tain, with its beautiful diadem, a crown of rocky points, seemed to spring full-grown from, the sea. Two hundred years»have gone by since the shores of Tahiti were first visited by Europeans. In 1706 the Spaniards did little more than land and take possession in the name of their sovereign. It was riot until 1767 that Wallis . visited it, ! and, claiming it' ior England, named ...

Household flints. ... » ? Onion water applied with a soft brush will keep flies off gilt frames. The yolks of eggs covered with cold water will keep for several days. . Old putty on window-frames may be removed by passing a red-hot polcer slowly over it. Velvet that has become crushed may be restored by placing the linen side of the. dress over a basin of hot water.

WASHING THE BABY'S CLOTHES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 February 1911

WASHING THE BABY'S CLOTHES. This is not an unimportant task, for the little garments accumulate very fast, and,, if washing is done only once a week the laundress will be surprised at the size of the pile of clothes, that awaits her attention. In this work, as in every other, much time and labor would be sav ed by adopting proper methods. The first thing to be done is carefully to sort the clothes, and put everything but the flannels in lukewarm water to soak, having the napkins in one tub, and the dresses and muslin skirts in another. After they have soaked an hour or two, rub them out and place them in hot suds, made with soft water and yellow soap. A strong soap should never touch anything that comes in con tact with the baby's skin as it is al most impossible to rinse it all out, and* what remains will irritate the tender flesh, causing him to suffer torture. Put them in a boiler and allow them' to scald for a few min utes. Dip them out in clear water, rinse thoroughly through o...
