Red spots have an u -Cy knn'h of ap pearing after an outhurst of passion and refusing to be hhtlen, even by powder. A:ud aft er the flush of anger has died down, the nl;in feels dry and positively painful. All this is caused by the excitement .of g:'o',i' an::gry, and as long as the emotion 'asts nothing can he done.

BOXING THEN AND NOW. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 11 October 1924

BOXING THEN AND .NOW. The history of British boxing cal: to miud many strange characters. From the rugged personality of rare old Jamcs Figg, the first champion, to the dapper "Janlihg master" type as exemplified by-'Bombardier Wells in modern times, may be a far cry, but in between every conceivdhle kind of champion has held sway at one time or another. Many pugilists have been zealous preachers of the Gospel, says Mr. Harry E. Cleveland in "Fistcuffs." Isaac Perrins, the "Birmingham Go liath," for a time "held forth" at a Handsworth chapel, where' he was al so a choir leader, but eventually, be came a publican in Manchester. William Thompson, alias "I3endigo" was one of the' best as -well as one of the most ercentric men who ever en tered a ring. He was a born clown, and his acrobatic feats were extra ordinary. But when he was under the 'influence' of drink he was the ter ror' of Nottingham. On one occasion he stripped a butcher's shop and flung the joints of meat at the crowd who...

The next step will be the commencement of the erection of the walls, which will pro ceed immediately. The settlement with the insurance company over the claim for damage done to the Soldiers' Memorial building has been made on a satisfactory basis to the shire.

The floor should be of such a finish that it can he scruhhed several times a month with some good anti septic solution, and should he wilred up daily with a d(hml, cloth.

PENNIES ARE UNPOPULAR. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 11 October 1924

PENNIES ARE UNPOPULAR. - - ------+ - In Manitoba farthings are pre. ferred to pennies ! This is how it Il l:pens : The 'anadian standard copper is a one-cent piece, but En- lish coppers circulate freely. The old Canadian cent was about the size, an.l va.lue, of a halfpenny; the n,'.v c-nts are exactly the size of a far thing. - r dam care to he hoth tre( fi t-~rpi'per.% and until a Ic w years ago the silver five-cent piece was the smallest currency in general use. The imposition of a two-cent amusement tax on every twenty-five cent cinema ticket has now made cop pers almost unavoidable. A half penny passes for an old cent, a far thing for a new cent. Nobody loves the penny, but the ticket-seller will lccept it as a' "coppler" too. He will not care, to pass it :out again, for his patron may say, "H-ere, what's this ? ti"e me a little one.!" Opinions vary as to the respective un"-o'ularity of the two sizes of cent, with their halfpenny and far thing equ'ivalents, but everyone pre fers...

SUNSHINE HARVESTER WORKS The Specification Department. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 11 October 1924

SUNSHINE HARVESTER WORKS The Si)cecilication i)elpartment. It is amazing how many separate departments. each carrying out very necessary work, peculiarly and solely their own, are embodied in a huge industrial organisation like Ii. V. McKay PLty. Ltd. Just as a builder requires the ar chitect's plans to construct the edifice he is to erect, so the workmen in the factory need the clearest specifica tions from which to manufacture the required article. These plans are is sueal by what is known as the "Spe cilications" branch. Many of the departments are manned by specially trained stalls, and specifications furnish a case in point. Here only experienced and practical men are engaged-several of the clerks being practical engi neers. So accurate must the work of this staff he that none but the most ellicient and experienced mien are en gaged. Where measurements have to be taken from which the factory manufactures the finished part, clearly the utmost exactness is essential. IIence the g...

The parties meet 'at an agreed time in the big* gert hut in the village, and proceed to sing literally at each other.

Then c,-m s the rival party's turn, and for the next ho'ir or so they are allo'wed to ,ing at their enemy, putting their ine Its into some sort of metre.

HOME GARDENING [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 11 October 1924

HOME GARDENING (lly "lHleather Jock.") Many home gardeners have not the time to spare to follow up diverse crop g'l'owing successfully. It then becomes their lot to utilise their garden with somei useful crop that does not require the tinme and hise attention that a Imultiplicity olf varieties requires. Among the most useful of this class is the potato. Just at the present they are very cheap, but who can tell that withinl the next year they may he '5s exl{ensi\ve to purchase as they were last season. Sunshine soils, al lthough not what might be termed ideal potato soils, are nevertheless calabile, uInder judicious methods, of producing very creditable crops of this species of vegetation. !lest results are got from potatoes in light sandy loains, red volcanic, or ,eaty soils, but almost any soil, pro viiled it is nrot waterlogged, may lie made to produce good potatoes if plenty of. f;nrmyard mnanture is used. The soil for potato cultivation should he fairly deeply cultivated into a ...

ENCOURAGE AUSTRALIAN INDUSTRIES [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 11 October 1924

ENCOURAGE AUSTRALIAN INDUSTRIES The factl tliLt ill \?elbiou rnie last month were Ibeilg held two great exhibitions, mostly of machinery, gives rise to the reflection that upon the encouragement given to the se condary industries of the State much of the prosperity of Melbourne and Victoria dlependls. There is a peculiar or instinctive prejudice existing in the minds of Australians against goods of Australian manufacture. certain manufactures not being up to the standard of those imported in the past, but the disparity in quality is now in favour of Australian products. A glance in the shop windows in the city will convince that Australian made clothing is infinitely superior to that imported - the Australian tweed used is much superior to the shoddy half-cotton rubbish used in cheap imported garments. The Aus tralian boot trade was at one time out-distanced in quality and price by the overseas producers of footwear. The reverse is now the case. Nearly all the boots worn in Australi...
