(By "Ambrosine.") Olio of the latest fads amougfashion:; able women is to have their backs—not, backs,mado shapely and picturesque by means of silks and laces and .guinea corsets—but the natural back, from the waist to the shoulders, photographed.

A BULLA FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 25 June 1914

A BULLA FARM. By J. S. MuFadzean (Senior Dairy . 'Supervisor), in "Journal of - Agriculture." Tile .growing of lucerne is usually considered as concomitant with natur I ally rich soil; so much so that, in tho absence of suitablo alluvial, laud, most ^people' will vnot attempt to grow this 'foddor. Tho fact, however, is that lucerne will-glow on almost any land except such as is badly retrained j and, once;-established, it will live through very, dry periods; but if repeated cut tings are expected from it during tbe wanner months, . a regular supply of !•' water is then necessary in its eultiva- i tion; .with this provision, it is in the .warmer and drier districts that it nour ishes most luxuriantly. That compara tively poor land is capable of being abide fo grow prolific crops oiMucerne has, in tho Bulla district, been demon strated in a very thorough manner , by Mr. G. 1).

HEAVILY INSURED LIMBS. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 2 July 1914

HEAVILY INSURED LIMBS. The recent-accident to Mine. Pavlova in Now York, which was "at first repor j tod to .be somewhat serious, recalls tho fact that, like Pudcrewski, whose fingers" , are insured for a colossal sum against injury, tho charming dancer has a policy which protects her against loss from ac cidents to her limbs, and especially her , feet and dainty toes, upon which her art and her income aliko depend. It has not yet been learnt how far the present accident comes under the torms of this policy, although it is understood that tho disablement of cither of the big toes would mean payment of £6000, and of,-one of the lessor -toes £3000. ' This, however, is by no moans an ex ceptional insurance. Nijinsky, who re cently appeared at tho Palace, and Mile. Genee have insured themselves for seve ral thousand of pounds against acci dents which -would provent them from dancing, whilo M. De Biere, tho famous illusionist, followed the example of some well-known musicians and insured...

A DOLL-LIKE MENU. Miss Winifred Harper Coolcy, natio nal president of tile Associated Clubs of Domestic Science, (America) recent ly tried the experiment of feeding for a week on concentrated preparations; She breakfasted on essences, lunched on powders and tabloids, while she found her dinner in cubes and tubes.

' Rhciins, which is in the middle of the champagne country, as well as one' of the most important .military centres of Prance, has been thrown into a state of great excitement - by revelations which were made to the police regarding the invasion o£ the eastern frontier by Ger man spies; and the organisation of an amazing plan to stop, in case of the sudden declaration of war, the mobili sation and movements of the Prench army around ltheims. A dispute be tween a Prench dragoon and a couple of Germans led to a free'fight, which re sulted in the whole party being taken to 'the police station. There the dra goon explained to the commissary that he became very angry because the Ger mans wanted him to; desert, and offered to provide him with means to leave his regiment' or to aet as a spy. it appears that the two Germans ar rived at Rheims a few months ago, and were employed by a local German cut lery firm, and it has been ascertained tha...

V'MAMMERS MAKYTH WOMAN." ("Sydney Morning Herald."; To tlio modern woman," the extreme modern woman, humility is no longer a virtue. Unselfishness may bo crimi nal, becaufee it may tempt others to bo selfish. Self-effacement is silly. She must, as a duty, devolop.,lier individu ality, must assert her rights,: sometimes spell them with a very large K, and enforce respect for the claims of her sex. Does she always benefit herself, her associates, and society generally by so ordering her life? hi ay it noe bo pos sible that in some cases she . docs her | Own character a permanent injury by the process, and at the same, time j niakes her neighbors • uncomfortable. The question is involved. Pondering the problem, I went to town, and there met scmic illustrations which will be useful when wo resume discussion. The first was in a tram car.

Sad Fatal Accident. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 2 July 1914

Sad Fatal Accident. On Saturday afternoon last a man named George Whitehouse met with a sad death on the farm of Mr D. Geary, at Honing, where he was employed. From information to hand it would appear that de ceased, who was a married man with seven" children, was told by his employer that he could cart some firewood for himself, and he set out to attend to this work. Having procured the horse and dray ic is presumed that White house drove to the dam to water the horse, when the animal got into deep water. Deceased went into the water to release the horse from the dray, and had removed some of the harness, when it is supposed that he was struck on the head by the plunging animal and rendered unconscious, as there are cuts in dicative of this, and he was either drowned or killed by the injuries received. It was not known what kad become of him until the fol lowing morning, when he was re ported missing, and on search being made the horse was found dead in the dam. When this dis cover...

WOMEN'S INTERESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 2 July 1914

(By "Ambrosine.") ' All tho now coats and costumes aje j fashioned to show open-fronted collars and low-cut vests, which f>rove so be coming to the majority of wearers. The only drawback to this delightful • fashion is that it tends to roughen and redden the part of the skin so exposed,; leaving an ugly mark when evening dress is worn. To remedy this a new - preparation, introduced in tho first place to whiten and soften the hands, will be found invulnerable. This lis made in the form of scent, and a ,few drops rubbed into the.skin night-and niorning does wonders in removing redness or roughness • aiid preserving the natural whiteness of the skin. Indeed, the little dressmaker of to day finds her hands full of work of this description just now, as a great many women are taking advantage of Fash ion's latitude in this direction, and in stead of buying expensivo frocks are having their old ones unpicked and dyed, or cleaned and covered with dra peries of lace or ninou to meet the f...
