ADVENTURES BY THE SEA. --------- + ---- A LOVE RIOMANCE WITH AN UNUSUAL IHGE3TNING. 'robably the most. amazing adven t urn' that ever erfell anyone at the sH aside happened near I ymington, in lHampshire, recently. A young pro I.ti. lier nurse was wimniing alone, v h'| the found that the tide and cur rent were carrying her into the Chan n-Il. She made an attempt to get bac': to the shore but failed, and saw dlr.;:l.h staring her in the face. With great pluck she turned over on :her hacrk knowing that she could float a crns':erable time without wasting her st rength, and hoping against ho; c that some passing boat would rresrr hr r. This did not happen, how ever, and she floated for several hor.:. Th' n, qiuitd suddenly, she dis co' lr:J Ihat. she was cl.-e to the Isle of \i;,hlit. she turned over and sxwam ls!:(ore.

EXIT THE SMITH. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 13 September 1924

EXIT THE SMITH. *------+--- Are the (lays of the village black s:nith and his forge numbered ? It would anlmost .seem so. " In several parts of Britain horseshoes are now made bhy a special gas-heated apparat us that turns out sixty shoes in an ,hour. 'T'lhis compares with an output by two men of nine in the same period in the old days. The moderin process is spreading, and, perhaps, before long, the roman tic Ilac'smith with sinewy hands and iuighty muscles will he simply a mem ory of the past, and the joyful clang of hammer 'on anvil will cease for ever.

HOME GARDENING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 13 September 1924

HOME GARDENING. By "Heather Jock." The majority of people are aware of the beneficial effects on the health by consuming fair quantities of fruit. The "eat more fruit" campaign may have done much to bring this fact more to public knowledge, but it has done nothing towards making fruit more easily procurable to the working man who happens to be rearing a family, and who by reason of such has more need for the fruit, as un doubtedly its value is realised to a greater extent in the child than in the grown-up. There is such a disparity between the prices realised for fruit by the grower and that paid by the consumer as warrants the deep study of the brain of our most able busi ness organisers, in order to be able to devise a means whereby this vast difference may be somewhat curtailed, Such an attainment would unani mously be proclaimed a vital acquisi tion to the humanity of Australia. While we await the achievement of this one who owns a little bit of backyard can get a long way to wa...
