JAPANESE EARTHQUAKE [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 23 January 1914
JAPANESE EARTHQUAKE (REUTER'S CABILEGRA.MS) Details have been received at T?bkio of the fearful catastrophe brought about by the sudden eruption of the volcano Sikura-shima, after lying dormant for 130 years. No reliable estimates as to the loss of life can yet be formed, but the total is believed to lie between 5000 and 10,000 victims. The means of rescue were altogether inadequate to meet sr ; :a. sudden and terrible emergency. Crowds of fugitives on.the beach, waiting to cross to the mainland, were overtaken by the fire'and lava, and perished miserably. This was no fault of the launches, vwhich plied heroically, amid a constant hail of boulders and stones. One ship,'cirrying 307 refugees, sank during the second eruption, and all on board were drowned. Many others met a similar fate in trying to swim across the Strait. Six hundred houses collapsed after a violent earthquake. The shaking of the earth was so great that it was impossible to walk upright. The west side of the volcano ...

CHATS WITH THE COOK. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 23 January 1914
CHATS WITH THE COOK To select iat ham.-Pierce through the thick part with a meat knife. If the blade draws out clean, the nan is a good one, but if the fatty subs tance sticks to it, another selection should be made. It'should also have a sweet rich smell.

Let it cook; gently for an hour, when you may throw in a carrot, if there is no ob jeetion to tle flavor, also a sprig oe parsley, or a few cloves and bay leaves. to suit the taste.

Out' of a numerous yield of kittens, not one had resembled its iuither, and while they were sntn marily disposed of, sheo who had given thenm birth was retained, and kept the house and premises clear of vermin. After several years, she appeared to be suffering fiom toothache, evidence of which was forthcoming in a swollen face, always.on the same side of tile face, and wluhich interfered with lihe pleasant facial appearance, as I have seen the case with human beings under similar circfumstances. \\hen suffer ing front these attacks, by her pitiful look up into our faces she seemed to appeal for the help we could not at ford, but we assured...
