Mistress and Maid. HOUSEHOLD SHOPPING ON THE CONTINENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 9 October 1914
Mistress and Maid. ? HOUSEHOLD SHOPPING OK THE CONTINENT. . ^ , Paris is quite as modern a city, as London; Uerlin, Vienna, and Milan have very much the same standard in these days of Insurious living. Yet., in any of these cities (according to the "Daily Telegraph") it is quite common to see a mis tress followed by her domestic, who bears a large basket, into which ar ticles are placed as soon as they are purchased. Household shopping is still looked upon as an art to bo cultivated rather than despised. Ladies of good position walk out oi a morning for the early market, 59 that they may see for themselves what is to be had and buy to the best advantage. Indeed, of a morning in Paris, the master of the house himself does not think it at all deroga tory to pass by the Halles Cen trales and to do his shopping. Behind him comes the servant maid, smart in her cotton frock, perfectly clean, her neat frilled cap, and her big, blue apron. Sho docs not by any means look upon her shopping ex...

Aeroplane Messages. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 9 October 1914
Aeroplane Messages. As the flying machine developed, the need of subsidiary apparatus became apparent. Military men soon demanded the installation o( wireless apparatus, guns, armour and similar accessories. While a great deal of experimenting .has been done to give them what they want, it can hardly be said that a very great measure of success has as yet been uttnined. Especially is this true of the wireless equipment. The sending apparatus which can bo i carried on an aeroplane is neces | sarily of very small range, and the recehing apparatus must struggle j with the difficulty of interference. Some day these objections will un doubtedly be overcome, but until they are, a French inventor and aviator, Paul Vugniron, believes that some such apparatus as he has invented and tested near Brest will be more acceptable to military men. With his invention a message can bo dropped in' full flight by an aviator who is sullicicntly near his destination, the craft returning im mediately at fu...

The Benalla Show Success Under Adverse Conditions. Estimated Profit £150. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 9 October 1914
The Benalla Show Success Under Adverse Conditions. Estimated Profit £150. The weather was a scorcher on Tuesday and Wednesday. This sniff from the Never Never Coun try, No Maii^s Land, or Sbeo!— just left to the individual taste of the reader as to the most pictur esque temi — blis-ered everything in Nature's garden. Neighboring kindred societies felt the ill-effects of the prolonged spell of withering atmospheres, and it would be some thing uncommon for Benalla to be "out of the fashion" even when droughts are on. The 1913 Show was crowned with a garland of Spring: 1914 sweltered under a shimmering Summer haze. It was not to be expected under the ad verse conditions prevailing that the gate receipts would increase abnor normally. On the other band they did not shrink to the croaking level of the pessimist. The Society, if anything, came through one of the most trying seasons more than holding its own. The incoming | trains brought iu large crowds, and one of the most appreciated an...

Social Changes. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 9 October 1914
Social Changes. * The fashion which has obtained of late years of not introducing guests to each other causes muny to feel awkward and unhappy, and savours more of bad manners than w'ant of tact. It has for some time called forth the criticism of visitors from other lands accustomed to more graceful procudurc. • Gone are many of the arts in which women of bygone times delighted. 1.otter-writing as practised to-day Is of a kind to mako Mme. Sevigne turn in her grave. The art of con versation, with its rapid thrust of wit and its sparkle of repartee, has withered in the hands of the pre sent-day girl with her rare choice of slang. Good manners, that courtcsy and good breeding that knows how to put every one at their ease, is at a discount, and brusquerie that would have set on edge the teeth of many a dead and gone hostess of rare charm, is the fashion, says the "Pall Gazette." Then the ideal entertainment has gone. Its place has been taken by mammoth gatherings without soul, and the ...
The Use of Condiments. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 9 October 1914
The Use of Condiments. It would appear that condiments aro choscn to accompany those | foods which are less digestible or which are richer than others. Mut-| ton, for example, is more digest ible than beef, pork, or duck, and it is to these three that mustard is generally added. Vinegar again is known to soften the hard fibre of both meat and vegetables; hence it probably renders such foods as crab, lobster, salmon, salads, red cabbage, and walnuts less tough and more digestible. Vinegar in dress ing and sauces probably has a | similar action. As a rule," says the "Lancet," "the increased amount of soluble or extractive matters in a food is in direct relation to its digestibility and nourishing value, not that the extractive principles are in themselves nourishing, but because they are appetising and promote the flow of digestive juices. Dread and cheese and beer form a most enjoyable meal after brisk exercise in the open country air, but during sedentary occupation very little reli...
Newsboys on Horseback. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 9 October 1914
Newsboys on Horseback. ■" J, Most newsboys think themselves well oft if they own a good suit oi clothes ; but in the Uruguayan capital of Monte Video there are over fifty newsboys who own horses, and peddle their papers on horse back. Montevideo has three hundred thousand inhabitants, but it spreads over a considerable territory. I.ike other people, the Uruguayans wnnt their evening paper as noon as possible after it comes from the press. The horseback newsboys sup ply this demand with astonishing rapidity. . "l>a Rar.on." one of the leading evening journals, is issued at fivo o'clock. About twenty minutes before that hour the news boys, mostly young men from eigh teen to twenty-five years of age, gather in the street in front of the newspaper office. When the papers are brought out, a clerk hands a bundle to each, and away he starts at full gallop. All the business in the centre of the town is done by ordinary "foot newsboys." The horsemen race away to their beats in the suburbs...

Doctor and Tiger. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 9 October 1914
Doctor and Tiger. When it became known thnt tlio best shot in the company was go ing into the jungle to compass the death of a terrible tiger, the sur geon-major of the regiment, an en thusiastic curio-collector, at once buttonholed him. "Remember, Atkins," said he, "I bespeak the skin at your own price." "All right, sir," said Atkins. The surgeon-major was netting butterflies on the outskirts of the jungle that evening when he 9aw Atkins running towards him. "Shot him ?" shouted tlie surgeon major. "Yes, sir I" breathlessly replied the flying Nimrod. ! "How much for the skin ?" I "Five quid, sir !" The doctor gave Atkins the money. "Where's the skin ?" he cried. "Behind you, sir !" came the re ceding answer. ■ The doctor looked, and saw tin si. in, with the tiger in it, coming open-mouthed and bleeding from a scratch where .At'&lt;ins had "shot " it. The doctor didn't get tha tiger's skin, but the tiger nearly got the doctor's, ,
KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 9 October 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. ♦ If anything on which paraffin has been spilled—hands included—i« rub bed with raw potato, the smell.will immediately disappear. New potatoes should be placed in boiling water to which salt aud a little milk have been added. The milk prevents 'them from turning black. The popular cabbage is useful for drawing and cleansing a gathered finger or poisoned hand. Take a cabbage leaf, roll it 'out with a : bottle until the juico comes, and tie it on the affected part. Salt will remove black beetles. Put plenty of salt where the beetles frequent, and keep it there for a week. Do not leave any water where the insects go. When they eat the salt it will dry up their bodies. To remove the smell of fish or cabbage from a saucepan, burn a piece of brown paper on the fire and turn the saucepaYj down over the burning paper. This will re move all odour, whatever it is, in a few seconds. A reinforccd-concrete building, 200 feet high, containing a spiral drive way for automobiles t...

Hanged for Signing Four Names. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 9 October 1914
Hanged for Signing Four Names. People have not Always been allow ed the pleasure of having as many names as they wish. Four hun dred years ago not even a middle name was allowed in England. It was illegal. The old English law was definite and admitted of no infraction of its ruling. , The only exception made to this ' regulation was in the case of per ■ sons of Royal rank. If they wish i ed, they could boast a middle ! name, but woo to the person of [■ordinary rank who was sufficiently | unwise or obstinate to insist on j having more than two appellations. | For the first ofience he would likely • bo tied to a whipping-post and , severely lashed. For a second of fence he would endure some more lasting punishment, perhaps the rc | moi-ul of his thumbs or his ears. ! and if he persisted in his stubborn ness he would 1)0 hanged. i There is a case on record of a man who insisted on signing four ; names every time he wrote his sig j nature.
