Paying their last Respects Over one hundred footballers, wear ing their club's colors, in which was ;i streamer of black ribbon as a sign of bereavement, followed tii'.- remains of tin; late Wilfred Lawsou to his last resting place in the Yarrain Cemetery on Thursday afternoon. Every club in the Association was represented, and the captain or vice-captain of each team led his men in paying their last respects.

CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 28 May 1914
CIIAI'TICR 111. The vicar strode into tliroom a mo ment after and struck, the keynote of the interview by drawing himself tii> right and ignoring Mr. 'Popper';; out stretched hand. "\.hy, what's the mat tor, Mr. t'en lev Y"- (iiiavered Mr. '1'opper. Tin; vicar's penetral ing eyes stared coldly at Mr. Topper, and the baffled scientist quailed before them. Kven before the charge was announced lie felt, himsolf guilty, convicted, and sen tenced. "I've come here for sonic straight talk with you, Mr. Topper," the vicar said. "It isn't often I lose my temper, but I'm going to tell you to your face, John Tapper, at you're a rascal, sir! A downright rascal!" Mr. Topper, who had been standing, suddenly colkipsed into a chair and stared feebly at the man who, five min utes before, lie would have declared to bp one of Ills best and most valued friends. "If only you'll be good enough to s;iy 'what I've done, Mr. Fenley," lu: said with a brave attempt at retort, "perhaps we will get along. Yo...
CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 28 May 1914
ClfAI'TI'Ji; I. When .Mr. Topper determined U]>on his history-making demonstration. h-> look it, I'or granted t h;i I the supply of specimens was unlimited. So much was this liu' case that. he int an almost, fastidious choice of a tbor ohgh-going villain; one from whos? breast every human sympathy had died, evoVy decent motive was miss ing, every aspiration lost. The works of fiction told him of the existence of numbers of such men; no popular work was complete without the ebon .' hearted scoundrel. And Mr. Topper "had determined that his villain must bo the genuine article, as otherwise his demonstration would prove no thing. "What's the use of me getting a man who has lingering hopes of reform or who has redeeming qualities?" lie, told himself sternly, "in such a man f f should only succeed in awaking tlia good that was asleep in the mail's mind. No, I want a thorough-paced villain." His morning post the next day brought him, amongst the rest, two begging letters. One wa...

Very earnestly, vol in a voice sub dued HO thai his housekeeper might not hear it, Mr. .lohn Topper address ed his reflection in tlie mirror. lie was a short, robust., benevolent looking man upon whose plump fa'- ' forty years of placid life had written but few lines to mail; their passage. : 'omforlahly off, as the phrase goes' i unI I'uuhled liy the cares of business j or family. .Mr. Topper beamed at lie world throu;;h his rimless spectacles and passed his long hours dabbling eagerly with the science of sociology.

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 28 May 1914
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. Before cooking dried fruits, such as apricots or prunes, soak them in boil ing water instead of cold, and when cooking add a teaspoonfu! of vinegar. This improves the flavor. A troublesome corn can be eased by a poultice composed of a thin slice of lemon ,vorn over it during the day. To remove rusty screw, first ap ply a very hot iron to the head for a short time, Liien immediately use the screwdriver. To test the purity of coffee, pour cold water on it. If the water as sumes a brownish hue it may be con cluded that there- is chicory with it. To remove red ink-stains from table linen, spread freshly-made mustard ?>vithe stain and leave for about ::.11r an '.our. Then sponge off, and -ill trace of the ink will have disap peared. Cave-tine papper is excellent to rid ?.upboaris of mice. The door should b;> gon- over carefully, and each hole .-topped up Willi a piece of rag dip nod in -.vater and then in cayenne pep per.

RICHES IN MIDDLE AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 28 May 1914
RICHES IN MIDDLE AGE. The poetry of life gathers around .its commencement and its close, just as the poet finds inspiration in the rising or setting sun. Infancy has its charm of innocence, youth has Its charm of energy and hope, age has its charm of pathos. But around mid dle life there seems to gattier no halo of poetry. The bird that wakes the morning with its song is silent in the midday hour.^ The burden and heat of the day are not favorable to music. The poet who will celebrate the open brow of childhood or the furrowed cheek of age will find no inspiration in the anxious eye and busy front of. middle life. The maiden, who moves fancy free among the meadows; anjf. (.he tired face and eyes of tranquil resignation, bordered by silver hair, may alike provoke his muse. But who will sing of the middle-aged man or matron? The whole atmosphere of such lives lacks the poetic qual ity. Their existence is practical, pro saic, dull. We find it hard to invest, such lives with poetry. But ...
FEATS OF THE BLIND. Sightlessness Not Necessarily a Handicap to Success. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 28 May 1914
FEATS OF THE BLIND. Sightlessness Not Necessarily a Handicap to Stitcess. It is really wonderful what the blind can learn to do for themselves, '^iiite lately, a blind, deaf and dumb ur:rl wrote to the secretary of the in i:11:Lii.>11 where she had been trained ' i tell 1I>t that she was staying ia the eomM'y, and was greatly enjoying the ".allies of tennis «"&lt;1 eroquet. It is we!! known. of course1, that EI !. a . Keller is similarly handicapped, \ ei the is one of the most learned v.,i!ii.-!i in the world, and iier books are not only read in America. Britain and the Colonies, but tire translated into many foreign languages. She has declared that if she nirt a person in .ii' Desert of Sahara whom she had met but once before, she would know instantly who it was by their charac teristic scent! In .N'cw York a blind barber is do iag extremely well. and it is said that h» has quite as few slips of the razor as the average barber who has ail his faculties. In fact, anyt...
GROWING MANGOLDS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 28 May 1914
GROWING MANGOLDS. In choosing tlio situation for man golds a sunny aspect should be se lected, as thev lovo the warmth, nnd well-rooted will withstand heat as well as drought much better than tur nips. Mangolds are not subject to 'blight like the turnip, and on this ac count are invaluable as a stand-by in case of a failure in the turnip crop. When manuring for mangolds, the far mer could greatly Improve the yield of his crop by adding a litile nitrate of soda, which can be applied with or at the time of seeding or as a top dressing. The course to be taken, however, must be determined accord ing 1 o conditions, the chief of which being the nature of the land. For in stance, if the land is of an open, por ous nature, the method of applying it as a top-dressing at comparatively short intervals is probably most econ omical. as there is little danger of the nit rale being wiisII'j through into the subsoi! before tin* plants have a chance to make use of it. But on hind of a retentive nat...
HIDE AND SEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 28 May 1914
HIDE AND SEEK. By R. C. MUNRO. Philip gazed through the fog at the windows of his brother's house, and ^decided that the clergyman's dinner party therein, to which ho was pledg ed, was no place for a man in his pro sou t high spirits. - He had not quite got to the stage ? 'of; exhilaration that leads a gentle man in evening dress to discuss poll . tics with a night watchman; but lie had just r^ad "the street corner firo V^larm instructions twice. Also, in stead of sweating.at an urchin who asked for" cigarette cards, he had sub sidised him to the extent of a half penny towards the purchase of a bun. In short; he had had four glasses of champagne and a benedictine, feeling that no self-re specting gentleman could fittingly celebrate in lemonade the departure of another. He glanced at his watch. It was G.45. It occurred to him that if he drove off at once be would be in time to intercept one of the convivialists who had gone home to dress They could go to a music-hall and make a night...

THE PIGGERY. MONEY IN PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 28 May 1914
THE PIGGERY. MONEY IN PIGS. The rearing of pigs was the sub ject of an interesting paper read by Mr. F. Gamlin recently before the n.embers of the Otakelio (New Zea land) branch of the Farmers' Union. Pigs have the reputation of being dirty animals (said Mr. Gamlin), but if properly housed and looked after, are one of the most profitable, as well, as the most interesting, products of the farm, and it is surprising how few farms have a really wellnequipped pig gery. It seems where tlie ;'pig is con cerned "any old thing will do." The extra profit will soon repay the small expenditure on a good comfortable house. For general requirements I consider that a building 30ft. x 7ft., with wood floor, divided into four compartments, three for breeding sows, each 6ft. x 7ft., a rail placed about 10 inches out from the wall and the same distance above the floor is necessary to prevent the sow from "verlayiiiK her young. The remain ing space, 12ft. x 7ft., I use for a fat tening pen, each compa...

CHILDREN'S FRIENDSHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 28 May 1914
CHILDREN'S FRIENDSHIPS. I1 i'i>in about the lilth or sixth year children are apt to make firm friend ships wiili I In Mr small contemporaries. This should bo a watchful period for mothers, for these early friendships have a marked influence on the mind, morals and maimers of a child. .\'":ir!y every character is moiildeil wry largely by early companionship and siin'onioi in;',s. Kvery mother should take ca;-" io i>e her children's companion as far a.s possible, for she may he quite .sure that if they are left to the care of servants, they will at the besi only attain Hie ideal manners and customs of the nursery or ser vants';; hall, which are not quite those of the cultured classes. Children re quire the companionship of little folk of their own age, and a mother should lie so much her children's friend thai she knows all tneir associates, and is able to ni]i in the bud any acquaint ance which she thinks undesirable.
