AD CREE AND COMPANY. RE.APPEARANCE THIS EVENING It was with feelings of genuine pleasure that the public heard that the notable Scotch comedian, Ad Cree, and his talented company, were again to appear at the Star Theatre this (Thursday), evening.

Add Cree himself say s," 'What I consider not fit for the ears of my own wife and daughters, I will not impose on other people."

'"And Ad Cree and his company amply .demonstrated at the Star Theatre on Wednesday evening how an audience-and it was one of the largestaseen in that building for a long time-can be thoroughly...

At the first stroke of the gong the men rushed to their posts, the doors of the stalls opened, and within a few seconds men, horses, and engine were speeding down the street. The young man watched the pro ceedings with admiration. "Well!" he exclaimed, when speech returned. "There ain't many places where they'd go to all that trouble to show a stranger what they can do."
KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 7 May 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. Powder the insides of new gloves 'to make them easier to slip on, and also, in the case of colored kid cnes, to prevent the dye from staining the hands. The cooler eggs are the quicker they will froth when whipped, so they should be beaten in a cool place. A pinch of salt always cools and fresh ens them. Vegetable and fruit stains on the fingers can be removed by dipping tile fingers in very strong tea for a few minutes and then washing them in clear, warm water. If bright saucepans and kettles have to be used over a smoky fire, smearing a little grease over the bright part will prevent the smoke from blackening the metal. If wash ed after uae in hot water, the pan will be as bright as ever. When using dripping for making a cake, add a few drops of essence of lemon or the juice of a lemon, and it will be found that this will not only remove the fatty flavor which cakes so often have when made with drip ping-especially mutton - but will very greatly improve the flav...

THE OLFACTORY NERVE OF INSECTS [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 7 May 1914
THE OLFACTORY NERVE OF INSECTS A great number of facts of the life o: insects can hardly be explained ex cepting by admitting a particularl, powerful olfactory sense in these ani mals. The examples are numerous; if. in an ant-hill, an ant of the'same species as those that inhabit it, but belonging to another swarm, tries to penetrate, it will immediately be ex pelled. Sometimes the hypothesis has been supposed of a sort of lan guage allowing each individual to make itself known, but deafness is general in the class of insects, and ants in particular are absolutely deaf. Sc then there only remains the odor special to each swarm which appears to constitute a mode of identification.` In the same way, when the corpse of a small mammiferous animal is be coming decomposed in a field, a legion of sylphs and necrophors, strangers to the immediate neighborhood, com ing sometimes from a distance of several kilometres, arrive to lay their eggs there, guided, it would seem. merely by their sens...

The Economist. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 7 May 1914
The Economist. Some people seem to think that, to get rich, one must economise like Blanco. Blanco's faithful old dog had turned sickly and savage, and so Blanco said to his wife, on arriving home from business on Saturday evening: "I'll shoot Towser to-morrow morn ing before church." Blanco paused, then added, stern ly: ."So remember, please, that he won't need any breakfast."

A BOTANICAL CURIOSITY. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 7 May 1914
A BOTANICAL CURIOSITY. It is time we should learn more about that wonderful invention o_ Dame Nature known as the Venus t fly-trap, which, in the United States, finds its home mainly in the swamps near Wilmington, North Carolina. A specimen transplanted into .moss and rich earth will thrive in the house if kept very moist, and it makes the best kind of fly-trap, for it is always on duty and looks after itself. As the older traps lose their vitality fresh shoots appear and new traps are de voloped. The Venus fly-trap is regarded as one of the greatest wonders of the plant world, for it seems to exercise a discrimination of taste that is more than human. It is provided with three delicate hair-triggers, and it exudes a sort of honey-dew that attracts the flies. Woe to the fly, however, that touches one of the triggers, for, quick as a flash, the two heavy leaves of the trap close upon the victim and crush it, much the same as an ordinary steel trap acts. There is no escape for the fly...
