WOMAN CONDEMNS SMOKING. "I haven't much pationco with tho poople who object to smoking, because .it jb 'unladylike,' " (Hays a London ^ritor.) "Cycling for women was 'unladylike'. not very long ago; BO was tho wearing oi' tailormndo coata and skirtB! Tor a good many yeara, tho 'nico giTl* never waltzed.

Monsters of the Past. [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 5 May 1914
Monsters of the Past. (Dy'WILLIAM NORTH.)' "There wore giants in Chose days," giants so enormous and, according to prescnt-dny ideas, so grotesquo that it is difficult to describe them. I was once examining a skeleton before mo when a man and a woman, with a-couple of children, came along. They were clearly out for the day, though why they should have elected to spend even a part of it nt a museum, through which they wandered aimlessly,, was ditli cult to guess. Well, anyway, in course of time the little party, cume to a stand for an instant .before that mighty skeleton. They could not quite ignore it, though naturally tiie children were much more interested in the contents . of the basket their mother carried. The waman glanced nt the hugo structure of bones coldly ; it fell to the man to pass judgment and to improve the occasion. For an in stant the pigm.y stood before the giant of a bygone age-it mado him look very small indeed-and then he spoke. "Oh, that's a little bit o' orlit...

PERFUMES NO LONGER CONDEMNED. [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 5 May 1914
PERFUMES NO LONGER CONDEMNED. . A Home authority states that per fumes aro no longor considered con demned as effeminate. Bath crystals aro among the more popular forms of porfumc, as they aro refreshing and also softou tho water. . Public taste now shows a strong ten (icuey towards tho mysterious scent, so that tho old simple scents liko violet, rose, and lily of tho valley aro giving way to perfumes composed of perhaps as many as fifty different ingredients -perfumes, for instance, liko Shom-ol Nessim. Thoro is as much harmony and. discord in perfumery as in music, Harmony in the. toilet can only bo achieved by tho uao of tho same per fume throughout, whilo, in tho mak ing of composite perfumes, tho smallest grain too much or too little of any ingrediont will causo as much discord as wheu a pianist plays a wrong note.

COST OF TOO WARS. y ? REMARKABLE FIGURES. Interesting in these cloys of war aro the figures that the Japanese Government has Just given out in nns\Vor to the request of two depu ties in Parliament..- They are the first published statistics on Japan's last two wars, those with China and with. Russia. Tho first, lasted 283 days, from August 1st, 189-1 to May 10th, 1895. Tho total ex pense was in round numbers £3,&lt;155,000. Tho ships of war had a total tonnage of 03,000, and tho cost per ton per dny was ft little over two shillings. Tho war with . llussia lasted 01/1 days, from February 10th, 1904, to October 10th, 1905, and the cost was £22,515,000. The nnvnl ves sels had a total tonnage of 283,100 and the cost per day per ton was ubout 3s. 2d. The great difference in tho cost of operation of naval vessels comes from tho change in types. Big battleships , are nob now so expensive to keep in ser vlco.

HOW THE WORLD IS FILLING UP. [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 5 May 1914
HOW THE WORLD IS FILLING UP. Most people do not realise how the world is filling up now, und although wo hear of millions of aero of laud still unoccupied, yet the population, is press ing already on the food supply. Pro bably the population now is ten times greater than it was, say, at the time of the Norman conquest, but it is increasing in geometrical ratio, and tho production of food- is not increas ing accordingly. We are, as a matter of fact, approaching the limit of iuuu production. Twenty years ago, when "the depression" was at tho worst, a great deal of wheat was sold at under 20/ per quarter. It has been rising' over since, and although it is not muoh ovor 30/ still it touched 40/ last aut umn. Wo have tho exampio of the United States, which is actually now importing food, and where the popula lation has made up on tho food pro duction. Thirty or forty years ago the reverse was tho case, and we were drowned out in this country by Am erican produco. As the result of nil thi...

SORE THROAT. [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 5 May 1914
SORE THROAT. " Ail ounco o£ prevention," is is said, "is worth a pound of cure"; and cer tainly the old adage is self graven in the case of soro throat. Prompt atten tion given to first symptoms will in all probability avert the threatened catas trophe. It is generally heralded by hcadaehc, chilliness, and a dry, rough feeling in the throat. To produce .1 thorough sweat is tho most simplo way to break up a cold, and this may bo ac complished by u hot bath immediately before getting into bed, wrapping one self in warmed blankets and taking a very hot drink, lemonade, etc. Ono tea spoonful of common baking soda to a glass of hot water, or salt water in tho same proportion, makes a capital garglo, and is one which can be obtained at a fow moments' notice. Tho garglo should be as. hot as can be borno, and used every half hour till tho inflamma tion subsides.
