USES OF RAW POTATO. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 8 May 1914
USES OF RAW POTATO. Raw potato is a thing useful in many ways. If one he cut in two and rubbed weil over a tan or white sio%, not only does it clean the leather, bht it allows of the shoe being inked black, if tbhis chanoe is needed. It will help the blacking to take where it would not otherwise take evenly. Potato parings, if put into the water with decanters and lbttles that have bocome:stained, will help to remove these mnarks. The parings must be taken from the raw potato, of course, and well shaken abgat in thoe tttle. A slice of raw potato will clean a pen that has becomec dirty with ink and rust; and the water in which potatoes are hoiled is a- good preventative fai vermin on plants. It does not hurt the bhids ar leaves in the least, and should be poureda slowly and carefully over them.

IS ROMANCE POSSIBLE NOW ? [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 8 May 1914
IS ROMANCE POSSIBLE NOW? Miss E. Tennyson. Jesse, the-author of "The Milkly Way," a novel-much 'road ,in England just now, gave as answer to an interviewer, tlhe answer of the best type of modern woman, denying that romance should be ?su fined merely to love in its narrow sense. "Why," said she, "surely this country that has produced flying is ro romantic as any there has been." But the interviewer persisted in regarding the word as firmly linked with "love. ' Romance, as implying glamour, hjw ever, Miss.Jessie hates. -"Glamour admits no faults. It is illusion. it idealises a man,?ad when the fact is realised that there are heaps of shortcomings in him !ov'e flies, for it-was given to somebody who never' existed. "The twentieth century is :analytical and not romantic in love," continu.i Miss Tennyson Jesse, and-a good thing, too.- it saves itself so ztany blunders and so, much'pain.- I wish the pren~p tial period were made less of in a girl's mind by her elders than it is.

WOMEN DENTISTS AT £2000 A YEAR. IEngland has at least one professiojn for women that is not overcrowd..,d, -ud that is dentistry. Women, so ready to enter medicine, are, strangely enough, little represented here, said Mtiss L. M. Brooks, Secretary and War den of the London School of Medicine for Women.. "We have only live girl students for the dentistry course at present. Lait year the number was three, and the previous year two. Prior to that there was a gap of some years without any students at all. "Looking. at the thing from a buai ness point of view, it is a splendid investment for parents of girls. . The course extends over four years,,and the joint fees amount in all to £180. The studies are pursued at this school and at the National Dental Hospital in Great Portland street. " At the end of four years' when they become registered dental practitioners, their incomes should easily equal tnose of the average male dentist, which ranges from £00( to £2,000 a year.

A BRIGHT OUT-LOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 8 May 1914
A BRIGHT OUIr-LOOK. If anything were wanted to point to the success of this district no more tangible reason could be given than that of the valuable prizes given at the Seymour show and the big stakes that are run for at Av enel and Seymour races. Such· alarge expenditure could not be undertaken were it not that the town and district is in a flourishing and prosperous condition. This means that thle people who are settled on the land are prospering, and when they are In the ascendant and doing well, every other industry must benefit in a proportionate ratio. 0ne has also to look at the fine church buildings in-Avenel, when he will be convinced that there is great wealth in the district, other wise these edifices could never have been erected. Then, again, the prizes given at the Seymour~ A. and P. Show are, another sure indi cation that there is great wealth in the district, and what is more that it is dispensed with a liberal hand. Surely the people whose lot is cast in such a pro...
"SHOPPING." [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 8 May 1914
",SHOPPING'.', From Berlin comes a statement that an unfortunate shopkeeper who charged a lady sixpence for-the troublo she had given .when she. had tried on many. hats and then left without making a purchase has been sent to -prison- as guilty of '' extortion. "This suggests the ethics of the subject of shopping as it is carried on in England. A. writer -in a contemporary makes out a good case for tradcuimen and assistants against the inconsiderate and troublesome cuns toener. • Two departments:of tho'modern shop are especially victimised, he says. One is that of gloves, where. the shopman experiences the difticulty from, dual causes..First is the insensate demand for a very cheap glove, which has made one "and olevenpnce a kind of atan dtard price that many will not exceed, with the result that they are -made of inferior skins allied with imperfect workumanship. The other is the foolish wish to wear a very small size, which leads the woman who should ask for an honest seecn to com...

How a Serjeant was had A really dashing rascal giving the name of Frank Mouran, was trapped last week at .Wangaratta by the police, and sentenced to three months imprisonment for issuing valueless Savings Bank or ders. The authorities now find the prisoner is an old criminal with half-a-dozen aliases, and, as show_ ing what a brazen character he is. he some time ago visited a Goul bourn Valley town,'cal!ed upon the serjeant of police there and intro duced himself as Revenue Detective Burvett (a relative of the well known detective of that name.) He said he wanted to catch a man seven or eight miles from the town for sly-grog selling, and indnced the sergeant to hire a buggy and drive him to the suspect's house. On the way out he borrowed 5s from the serjeant to purchase liquor (as the law required). The visit was entirely successful, and .ample evidence was obtained for several charges of sly grog selling. The sergeant drove him back to the town, and when leaving arranged for seuera...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 8 May 1914
THE prospect of increased prices for meat is not pleasant news at the b&ginning of the winter, when peo ple eat more of this variety of food than in the warmer months. It seems that mutton is not likely to get any dearer than at present, but beef has by no means done rising. Fat stock are scarce, and high prices are being obtained in all markets. At the Newmarket sales last week Messrs Chisholm Bros., of Kobyboyn, sold bullocks up td -£15, a pen of t~t averaging £;14 7s. Mr F. J.. Pettce, butcher; Sey mour, who has recently returned from a trip through New South Wales, was surprised to find fat stock so scarce. Although he trav elled hundreds of miles all he could buy was 21 ranging in weight from 4001bs to 10001bs. The country was looking well, but stock were short arid in low condition, and he confirms the opinion that meat is going to be dear.
