CHAPTER XXI. A RACE FOR LIFE. Never was a meal more enjoyed, though the meat was old and tough and the bread and water stale. When they hud eaten, they felt amaz ingly refreshed and In better spi rits, and then they fell to talking —first of their adventures in South Africa, and next of memorable things in Algeria and London, For the time being they forgot all else. The silence of the surrounding bush the loneliness of the little mining camp, lulled them into . false secur ity. Through the open door of the hut the morning air came sweet and cool. "It is like a dream," saitl Doris, "that we should both be here. And the strangest thing is that neither knew the other was coming. Were yon glad when you learned X wns in Africa, Eric ?" He turned his head aside. "Glad ?" he exclaimed hoarsely. "You know I was, Doris. But— i hut." ' But what, Eric ?" "I came to Africa to escape from temptation," he replied.

WE MAKE OUR OWN ROLLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 7 May 1914
WE MAKE OUR OWN ROLLS. We are all very fond of rolls, and they are really quite easy to make, so this is one of the first things I teach my small cooks to do. Here is the recipe we use :— Required : Three quarters of a pound of Vienna flour, half an ounce of compressed yeast, one and a half gills of tepid millc, one ounce of hatter, one egg, half a teaspoonful of salt. "Vienna flour" is sold in many districts us "pastry whites," and sometimes as "Hungarian flour." Put four ounces of the flour into a warmed, basin. Put the yeast and sugar, into another small basin, and; mix them till they are liquid, then . add the "milk, and strain all into the four ounces of flour.

A NTGHT IN THE RUSH. In low tones, and witli a resolute • calmness that surprised Eric, the girl related her experience. There is no need to set it down iii de tail. She had hardly left the coach at Lhk'soh's when the first tidings oX the rebellion were received, and of course the men would not per mit her to continue her journey home. That her uncle was not wait ing at the store caused her keen anxiety, which deepened as time massed on without bringing him. The first night and the following day closed without, alarm or at tack ; severul refugees came swelling the number of men to nine. But the next morning appeared a large force of Mntabele, who began l vigorous assault. The fighting, continued at intervals until late the afternoon, resulting in heavy loss'to the enemy and the death of one...

Plucky Pedestrians. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 7 May 1914
Plucky Pedestrians. A postman of Hartlepool who re tired lately has not achieved a re cord by his forty-one years of ser vice and estimated 160,000 miles of tramping to deliver 6,250,000 letters and parcels. A woman beat this hollow. Mary Jackson, post woman of Bilston, must have trud ged a quarter of a million miles between 1819 and 1860, during which time she never missed a day from sickness or took any holiday. Only four Sundays off duty in. her half a century spoilt her contin uous record, and these were not her fault. Delivery was experimentally suspended for those four days, and Mary's own comment was that the persons responsible were a pack of fools.

Bank-notes that Speak. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 7 May 1914
Bank-notes that Speak. -+ Bank-notes that speak are the latest invention of a bank-note ex port as a precaution against, for gery. The invention has been . pat ented in Kngland, and may bo some nay adopted when bank officials find themselves the victims of a desper are gang of rogues. The principle of this invention lies in the application to the edge of a bank-note of a "pictorial" record of some specially arranged ptirase. A bank-note so provided would, when placed in a phonograph, re produce this phrase for the bone lit of the hunk manager or the per son disputing the genuineness of the note. Assume -hat the code plira.se for An note is "£f> note." This would be extremely unlikely, but would serve to illustrate the point. A pictorial record of the oseillatin produced during the utterance of the phrase would be made and a die &lt; at callable of reproducing the pecu liar wave lines. With this die the edge of ifo notes would be perfo rated. The note than becomes, in addi...

Each week is bringing to light increased riches of molybdenite, wolfram, and . bismuth. There is now little or any doubt as to the richness and permanence of the field. Roberts and Heiss have a wonder ful show in the pipe they are working. It is sunk on for some 25 feet, and the width is as yet unknown, both sides being studded with rich masses of the three minerals, while under foot on the hanging wall solid molyb denite is being dug out with an iron bar.

Where Vanilla Came From. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 7 May 1914
Where Vanilla Came From. The history of vanilla is closely associated with that of cocon and chocolate, for vanilla came with cocoa to Europe ; in fact, these three highly-important products of New Spain were introduced into Europe by Spaniards. In the year t,r>20 cocoa was first drunk at the I'ourt in Madrid, and with choco late, also a Mexican product, was quickly adopted. For commercial reasons the method of manufacturing chocolate was kept a strict secret, and it. was made almost exclusively in Mexico. In some manner, however, the care fully-guarded secret reached Spain, and in into the first, chocolate fac tory was established at Barcelona. In the production of a deli cately - flavoured chocolate vanil la is a necessity, and wo may, therefore, conclude that the first introduction into Europe of va nilla for commercial purposes dates back to about 1540. • The word vanilla is derived from the Rpanish'"vainilla," the diminu tive of "vaina," u pod ; consecpient ly, vanilla means...
Household Hints. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 7 May 1914
Household Hints. . While the canary, is moulting tie n piece of bacon fat in its cage. It is *,a tonic, and will improve its song.' If corks are too large for a bottle souk them in boiling water for a few minutes. When soft they easily enter the bottle. When washing blouses, handker chiefs, etc., put a small lump of orris root into the rinsing wat r, and it will give them a delightful perfume of violets. This is much more lasting than if a sachet is placed amongst the clothes. An excellent remedy for chapped hands is marie by mixing' equal parts of glycerine and whisky to gether. Keep the mixture in a bottle tightly corked, and rub a little on the hands every night, and they will always be soft and freo from chaps. • When Kits mantles get smoky and dirty the light becomes poor and the mantles are in many cases taken olT and replaced. To remove all smoke and dirt from mantles, take a pinch of tnble salt, and spi inkle it into the mantle. It will look as good as new. Brussels sprouts,...
