KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 18 April 1914

KITCHEN WRINKLES. A strong solution of borax poured down sinks and drains will banish of fensive smells. A little ground almonds mixed through a fruit cake will prevent the fruit sinking to the bottom. If you want to heat a flat-iron in your room, a tin plate over the gas jet will enable you to heat the„iron twice as quickly. Before blanching almonds soak them for two or three minutes in boiling water; the akin will then slip off quite easily. Scorch marks on lineu may be re moved by rubbing with a fresh-cut onion, the garment being afterwards soaked in cold water. To stop hiccough, give the patient a teaspoonful of granulated sugar and vinegar. If this does not afford in stant relief, repeat the dose. When boiling any kind of green3, use sugar In place of soda, which gives the greens a much better flavor, but they then require a little longer cooking. To "break in a new pen point quick ly, dip it in ink and hold it in the flame of a lighted match for a second. Wipe and dry with a c...

MAKING THE BISHOP LAUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 18 April 1914

MAKING THE BISHOP LAUGH. j Probably one of the prettiest com pliments ever paid to the fair sex was that contained in the answer made by Dr. Potter, Bishop of New York, who was once asked by a lady why, in the 1 many pictures and studies of angels exhibited, the angels were always de picted either as women or as young men without beards or moustaches. "Everyone knows," replied the Bishop, "that women naturally inherit the Kingdom of Heaven, but men only get in by a very close shave." This story is related by the Rev. T. Selby Henrey, -vicar of St. George (Brentford), whose little volume, en titled "Attic Salt," providos many an illustration of the iact that wit and appreciation of humor are not the least prominent characteristics of lead ing divines. He tells a story of the late Dr. Creighton, who once received a book from a second-rate author, to whom he replied by post, "I thank you very much for forwarding to me your book, and I promise you faithfully that I will not lose any tim...

"i broke a brick in the fireplace," the youngster explained, between sobs. "Well, that isn't beyond remedy," smiled the parent, "but how on earth, child, did you do it?" "I was pounding it with father's watch."

THE LOST LAKE OF GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 18 April 1914

THE LOST LAKE OF GOLD. Somewhere in north-western Ari zona—the precise whereabouts is now a matter of conjecture—is a lake of gold formed by Nature. On Decem ber 13, 1858, a party of gold-seekers, twenty-two men in ail, were prospect ing in north-western Arizona when they came upon a band of nomad Apaches, who had with them consid erable gold, in the shape of nuggets and dust. After many pressing ques tions as to where they had obtained it, a half-bred Mexican volunteered to guide the white men to the spot for a consideration. He led them three hundred miles over a wild and desert country, to a spot near the head waters of the Gila river, where there were three mountain peaks in the form of a triangle. Here was a dried-up lake, the ancient bed a jumble of nuggets and gold-dust. The prospectors shov elled £40,000 worth into sacks, and twelve of them set out with it to Fort Yuma. They never reached Yuma, however, for they were am bushed and killed by Apaches in a defile since known as...

The doctor says that all animals that browse on grass and herbagi have no chin at all.

The moment that man gave up browsing on green things and be came less' and less an animal hi; teeth gresy erect, and hi3 jaw hat! to accommodate itself to erect teeth.
