Followed Advice. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 13 May 1914

Followed Advice. In a country neighborhood there was an old woman who kept a small general shop, where she carried on a lucrative business. Unfortunately, Bhe persisted for a long time in car rying; on her trade on Sunday, much to the scandal and disgust of a cer tain parish visitor, who entertained strictly orthodox views as to the oh: servance of the Sabbath. The latter remonstrated with the shopkeeper, and eventually, much to the satisfaction of everybody con cerned, persuaded her to refrain from Sunday trading, A few days ago Bhe met the old woman, who looked happy and prosperous. "I'm glad," said the parish visitor, "to see that you are doing «o well. You have not lost anything by fol lowing my advice." "That's so,' mum," was the reply; ".but you can't imagine how many of my customers come round the hack way!"

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 13 May 1914

LADIES' LETTER. ,c I ijever remember blouses that are ?calculated to go to the heart of even woirau who appreciates an oic ' iuc"' achieved by simple methods aiuTwith out any apparent effect than at the ..present moment. They are now such a very important item of every kind ? of costume that the choice is as varied as the numerous distinctly different ? classes of designs, all worthy of se parate consideration. From the simple shirt to the com plexity of the afternoon or demi-toil lette blouse of tulle is a far cry. Com mencing at the bottom of the ladder so to say, with the simple shirts] these in themselves provide food for - deep reflection. It is the American women who look their best in the severest of tailor made shirts. I do not-mean the wo . man whose figure is at its best nor - the pretty creature who can carry off . all kinds of fashionable follies and modish madnesses, but the natural, homely American, who knows how to ; put on her colthes.

Intention Only Credited. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 13 May 1914

Intention Only Credited. A fashionably-dressed young man strolled Into a small Scottish church while service was being held. The time for the collection came round, and, wishing to draw attention to him self, he flung his penny (as he thought) down on the plate with a crash. Immediately after so doing he discovered, to his great dismay, he had given half-a-crown in mistake. He at once got up and followed the old sexton, and asked to he allowed to get back his money. The old man shook his head and said-"Na, na; I canna gie it back to ye. Ye gied it to the Lord." The young man argued f($¥ some time, and at last gave It up and ex claimed impatiently-"Well, I suppose I'll get credit for it in heaven." "Na, na," replied the old man? "ye'll only get credit for the penny." At a club meeting held In a public house in a small village a discussion took place as to whether a hard or soft substance would last the longer. The debate continued for some time, until one man spoke up atnd said: "Now...

A Slight Mistake. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 13 May 1914

A Slight Mistake. She was young and rather nervous, and when the precious baby was ill, she sent for the doctor hastily. When the servant told her he was down stairs, she carried the baby into the drawing-room and interviewed a sol emn young man, to whom she related various interesting details of the child's ailments! He looked worried and finally exclaimed. "I don't know much about such things, madam, being unmarried. Wouldn't it be better to consult a doc tor?" M "But, aren't you the doctor?" "No, madam, merely the piano tuner!"

IN LOVE WITH A PICTURE. The Italian Who Stole "Monna Lisa" from the Louvre is not the First Man to Fail a Victim to the Charm of a Picture. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 13 May 1914

IN LOVE WITH A PICTURE. The Italian Who Stole "Monna Lisa" from the Louvre is not the First Man to Fail a Victim to the Charm of a Piclurc. "I fell in love with 'Monna Lisa.'" That was the declaration of Vincen 7.0 Perugia, the man who stole the famous picture, made to the police. After he had taken it from the Louvre ihe said that he went home, locked himself in his room, and stood en tranced before it, bewitched by the smile of La Gioconda. There were times, he said, when he felt that he must destroy the picture or he would go mad, bo haunting was the smile. "Monna Lisa" has always had ad-, mirers. One of the Louvre guides at the time the picture was stolen, Btated that he had seen visitors sit in front of it for hours, captivated by the se ductive smile; and the museum au thorities often used to 'have letters addressed to "The original of 'Monna Lisa'!" Far more people than Vincenzo Per-» ugia have fallen madly in love with well-known pictures. It was j^illais's picture "Ophelia,...

The Man Behind The Plow. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 13 May 1914

The Man They sing about the glories of the man , behind the gun, And. the books are full of stories of the , wonders he has done ; There's something sort of thrilling in the flag that's wavin' high, And it makes you want to holler when the boys go marching by ; But when the shoutin's over and the fightin's done, somehow, We find we're still dependin' on the man behind the plow. In all the pomp and splendour of an army on parade, And through the awful darkness that the smoke of battle made ; In the halls where the jewels glitter and whei'e shoutin' men debate, In the places where the rulers deal out honors to the great, There's not a single person who'd be doin' business now, Or have medals,- if it wasn't for the man behind the plow. We're buildin' mighty cities and we're gaining lofty heights, We're winning lots of glory and we're. settin' things to rights. We're showin' all creation how the world's affairs should run, Future men will gaze in wonder at the things that we. have done,...

Richards and Co's. New Display. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 13 May 1914

Richards and Co's. New Display. The Easter display by Richards and Co., opened to view last month, will no doubt be conceded by popular opinion quite up to, if not surpassing, all pre vious efforts made by the firm. The spacious window has been altered, and now allows of each picture being dis played to better advantage. The prin cipal subjects are all shown in colors, the art of which lies in the delicate and refined enhancement of the artist-pho tographer's work. The life-size head study of a charming little boy will be sure to command the admiration of all who view it. The curls and happy smil ing face are lifelike. A full length draped study of a young girl in classical costume is also very fine ; the texture of the drapery arid the lace veil being most realistic. This, together with the skil ful posing and the excellent effect of the worked-in background, makes up a delightful picture. Another large study of a young girl gathering violets in a pretty woodland scene is also very...

RANDOLPH'S UNIVERSITY. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 13 May 1914

RANDOLPH'S UNIVERSITY. Cawmill Carrmichael's proposition to establish a chair of journalism at Sydney University (writes Peter Persnurkus) recalls a tale of that ebul lient genius, Randolph Bedford. The thing happened in the days when Bed ford still belonged to daily-press work. He went to a Sydney journal looking for a, job-Buceplmlus offering to pull an ice-waggon. This journal had a sort of fiction that it lolted for Uni versity men to v.-rite its paragraphs txio Lord Mayor and the Drum . noJt was only fiction, but it was cherished. To this august place ctfmo Randolph, to see the gen eral manager. "What can you do?" the potentate asked. ? paragraphs, stories, articles, re ports," said Randolph. "Ah!" said the employer, not ill pleased. "And can you write short hand?" The superstition of those day6 was that you might be Jonathan Swift and Rudyard Kipling and Hilaire Belloc rolled together, but if you couldn't write shorthand there was no place for you there. "No," said Bedford cur...

KITCHEN WRINKLES. When boiling potatoes, add just a little sugar, as well as salt. They are far more floury than If only salt is added. The white of a raw egg applied to a burn or scald will prevent inflam mation, be soothing and cooling, and relieve the stinging pain. When a fish-kettle is not available for boiling the fish,* place an old plate at the bottom of the saucepan and tie the fish in a piece of muslin. To test mussels, add an onion when' cooking them. Should the onion turn. black, the mussels should not be eat en, as it is a sign that they are not good. If your oven will not brown your pastfry as well as you would like, put the cakes or tarts on the upper tray, and throw a little sugar on the floor of the oven. When you suspect worms at the roots of your plants, place a few un used matches, heads downwards, iti the pots. The sulpitur will kill the worms and the plants will be quite healthy again.

A Great Invention. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 20 May 1914

A Great Invention. Mr, Edison, who recently tried to take a holiday from work and is said to have become ill through boredom, is apt to 'be rather crusty with visi tors to his workrooms when they ask too many questions. ' - One day rather talkative journal ist pointed at a model. .."What's that?" he asked. Mr. Edison, who was getting very weary o£ the man's endless questions, replied blandly: "That, my dear sir, is a cradle which rocks by sound. .You put the baby in and the louder it howls, the faster the cradle rocks!" The man who is suspicious lives in a constant state of unhajppiness. It would be better for his peace of mind to be too trustful than too guarded. It's up to a young man to give a girl a few sample lessons before ask ing her if she thinks she could learn to love him. A woman is bo used to pinning things that she can't understand why a man should make so much fuss about a missing button.
