A Bad Blizzard. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 12 June 1914

A Bad Blizzard. One of the worst blizzards recorded for the last 25 years recently swept the Atlantic coast, and hundreds of streets in New York were rendered impassable. An army ' of 17,000 snow-shovellers was engaged to clear the highways. The city was threat ened with famine, for no freight trains with foodstuffs were able to enter the city. Terrible suffering was experienced in the poor quar ters, and many deaths from ex posure were reported. Passenger trains in all parts of the State were snow-bound. Seabright, New Jersey, a popular seaside resort, was devastated for the third time within two months, and all along the coast disasters to coastwise vessels were reported. All incoming .liners reported encountering fearful weather, the captain of the "Oceanic" declining that tlie voyage was the worst he had ever experienced. Forty steamers arrived considerably overdue. Much havoc was also wrought in Britain, especially on the West and South coasts. An iron ore vessel from Spain was...

JERUSALEM. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 12 June 1914

wnMiiiuuian JERUSALEM. S , Very shortly the sacred streets of the Holy City will lium with tha noisB of electric cars, and its more important thoroughfares will be illuminated at night with the brilliant electric filament. Its old picturesque walls and ~ massive towers are to be pulled down, and tlie city is to have an adequate water supply. The rapidity with, which Jerusa lem is extending", through the return of the Jews in such large numbers to the city of their forefathers, has (says an "Express" correspondent) rendered these improvements neces sary. ; Indeed, to the north and west of the old city there have sprung up, within the last decade, large Jewish colonies, populous residential sections, as well as convents, hos pices, institutions, schools, and other buildings, with the result that to-day there is a greater Jerusalem without the walls than within. Four separate tramway routes are to be laid down. They will nil start from the Jaffa Gate, the prin cipal entrance from the c...

Of Interest to Mac. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 12 June 1914

Of Interest to iliac. There was no doubt about the fact that Jack MacFaddy was a Scotsman. .. Last year, when journe3ring to the country on an important errand, he left his purse, containing nearly £100 in gold and silver, at the railway station from which he started. He telegraphed the fact on his ar rival, and the purse was kept till his return a month later. ( It was a young clerk who handed Jackie MacF. his wee purse with 1 the "spondics'' as lie r.et foot out of the train, and certain wild hopes were making that young man's ' i heart beat a trifle unevenly. But our canny Scot- counted his money unheeding, and when he'd finished he looked 'in long and sus piciously at tiie young man. "Isn't it right> sir ?" stammered the latter, in bewilderment:. '.Richt-richt ' it's richt enough; but where's the interest, won ?" -was UlacFaddy's stern retort. A mixture that will remove the grease from the finest fabrics is made of one quart of rain-water, two ounces of ammonia, one tea spoon...

He Was Called. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 12 June 1914

He Was Called. A commercial traveller 'who had business in a small town, recently was detained longer than he expect ed, and, missing the last train for the south, v/as forced to put up at a local hotel for the night. On inquiry, ho elicited the information that the first train for his destina tion started at seven o'clock the next morning. Being very anxious to catch it, he summoned the "boots" of the hotel, and gavo him particular injunctions to he sure and call him at six, so that ho might havo plenty of time. The "boots," a solemn, long-faced individual, faithfully promised to obey his request, and as the clock struck six the following morning, true te his word, opened the bedroom door. The occupant of the bed was still asleep. "Boots" caught hold of him by the collar of his pyjanm suit, and, giving him a vigorous shake, exclaimed, in his naturally somewhat deep and sepulchral voice: "Sir, your hour has comc !" The feelings of the poor commercial at this ruthless awakening from ...

Discounting Racecourse Winnings. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 12 June 1914

Discounting Racecourse Winnings. J A curious kind of discount business ia carried on in connection with tho French "I'ari-Mutuel" system of bet ting on the racecourse. It should be explained that those who wish to bet on a French racecourse have to take a ticket for five, ten, or i fifty francs at one of the offices of the "Pari-Mutuel." Each ticket is numbered, and the number corres ponds with the number of the horse; so that, in asking for a ticket, one simply asks for No. So-and-So. The names and numbers of the horses, as well as thoso of the joc keys, are shown on a large board before ths start. After the start no more betting is allowed. When I the race is finished the money is counted, and all the money placed on the losing horses is divided among the winners in their proper propor tion, the administration taking a percentage for expenses and tax. It will be easily seen, therefore, that when your horse has won, you are alyays in a delightful state of uncertainty .as to how muc...

"Best Beggar in London." [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 12 June 1914

"Best Beggar in London.'' -- The . Hon. Sydney Holland, chair man of the London Hospital, who has become Viscount Knutsford by the death of his father, has been de scribed as "the best beggar in Lon ydbn." The new Viscount is in his fifty-ninth year. His wife is a daughter of the fourth Earl of Ash burnbam, and they have two daugh ters. In .his early years,he was a famous swimmer, and in 1877 was fifth .. in, the long-distance champion ship of England. But it is for his tireless energy on behalf of the Lon don Hospital and other charities that he is chiefly known. The ori ginality of his methods in securing the vast sums of money necessary to maintain his hospital has shown that he has no peer even amongst professional agents. He once offer ed a guinea to anyone who would give him a line to fill a certain hoarding. That, he pointed out, gave him six weeks' advertisement while he was making up his mind which line to choose. On another occasion lie made good use of the fact that it is...

HINTS ON PIG FEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 19 June 1914

HINTS OX PIG FEEDING. i It is reported from England that a farmer owning a number of pigs was in the habit of feeding: them with tas kitchen refuse from a restaurant, to which he added barlej meal and molasses to flavour the food. As au experiment he omitted the molasses which the pigs liked very much, anl then found that the excrements of the animals contained pieces ot undine-1 ed food, and that the animals be came finicky in eating. When he again added the molasses these symptom*' disappeared ; the pigs ate greedily, and the food was quite digt'Ste.. Salt is another substance that adds to the flavour of many foods matin: them more appetising and therefore more digestible. When cooked p ta toes are fed to pigs, salt should al ways be added, and every farmer knows that a little salt mixed with hay, that is not quite as fresh a$ ^ might be, is a great improvement. It is said to be a fact that the pigs of large litters are usually more uniform in size. and fatten more quickly than th...

Supposing I came to our annual meeting and you asked me how many lbs. of cream it took to make the butter we had produced ; supposing I said that I wasn't sure-what sort of a man would you think I was ?

WHY WOMEN SHOULDN'T FLY. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 19 June 1914

why WOflSE^ SHOULDN'T FLY. $ ,Rv B C. BUCKS, THE UPSIDE ( . DOWN AVIATOIv.) FJying is a man's business, and a woman hasn't the right type of mind to engage in it successfully. That is the chief reason why I don't approve of girls becoming aviators. On more than one occasion when I have been up in the air with a lady passenger, the machine has side-slip ped or struck an air-pocket, and though I won't say wo have been within an inch of death, we have certainly been in great danger. These things happen to the best . airman, and cannot be avoided. Having righted the machine and descended to earth, the pilot steps out with uerves all tingling, and he offers-a silent prayer for his lucky escape. The lady passenger jumps out, her face wreathed in smiles, and gushingly remarks upon the aw fully topping trip she has made, and what a funny little turn the machine took half a minute ago. She has never realised that her very.life hung upon a thread, and only the pilot's coolness and exper ience...

Colouring Copper. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 19 June 1914

Colouring Copper. Copper and brass lend themselves readily to a colouring process and may be worked to all shades imagin able, excepting the lighter shades, which are lost 011 a copper surface, as that metal cannot be given a tint lighter than its natural colour, says a correspondent of Sheet Metal Shop. Zinc, colours fairly welt sometimes, through a narrow range, while tin is a hard metal to handle as regards oxide colours. Copper can bo carried through the entire range of shades, from a very light copper colour to the darkest brown, or even black, by merely oxidising the surface of the metal. Make a paste of viron oxide and graphite, with wood alcohol or with plain water, and apply this to the article, which is then heated in an oven or over a gas flame. It is better to use alcohol, as it dries out muchy quicker. The colour ob tained will depend on the amount of iron oxide mixed with the gra phite. and the length of time the heat was maintained. The more oxide in the .coating, the...
