A HUNDRED YEARS AGO. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 4 February 1915
A HUNDRED YEARS AGO. A little more than &lt;i century ago Britain. with a population of about a third its present size, was maintain ing an immense army, scattered over the world. In 180.9 the local militia alone numbered two hundred thou sand. and these were kept in training until the peace of 1815. More titan half a million men were garrisoned in the United Kingdom, another twenty-two thousand Regulars were fighting in Portugal, while in India, Ceylon, the West Indies. North Amer ica, the Mediterranean. Cape of Good" Mope, and Madeira were large bodies of British troops struggling to keep the Empire together. Tiiirteen hun dred Regulars guarded the convicts oi New South Wales, and eighteen thousand more were on the high seas. And, in spite of a long war. costing one million pounds a week, the coun try managed to redeem millions of unfunded debt and show a brave front to the world, with bread at one shilling and tenpence a loaf.

JUICY TABLE POULTRY. How To Produce Them. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 4 February 1915
JUICY TABLE POULTRY. How To Produce Them. There are a good many people who have not hail the opportunity of test ing the relative qualities of table fowls which have been raised by the man who knows his business, and the ordinary cockerel killed because the bird was not required for breeding purposes, but the difference is ar rived at by the treatment the grow ing birds receive right from the time they leave the chicken coop. Those who have been rearing fowls for years do not seem yet to have re alised that only the chickens which have grown quickly ever possess the flavor which results in repeat orders from those who consume the birds. There is a lot of ignorance, too, as to the fattening of the young cocker els for the table, for not only are they run on until they are past the proper age for fleshenmg, but the results achieved are very disappointing ow ing to the birds having developed leg muscles, which prevent the full flavor being acquired even by the use of the finest foods. ...

The Farmer and the Phrenologist. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 4 February 1915
The Farmer and the Phrenologist. A Southern man tells of ail iuno cent farmer who once sought out a phrenologist ami askeil that his "bumps be read." In revealing to the fanner his tem perament as shown by the aforesaid bumps, the professor said: "Your tastes are the simple, home ly ones of the farmer. You are a farmer, are you not? Ah! I thought so. And I am right as to your tastes, am .! not? You are sadly deficient in judgment, and have little knowledge of human nature. Your innocent and trustful disposition renders you an easy dupe to designing men, and your own perfect honesty prevents you from either suspecting or de frauding anyoi;e." The following week, it appears, the phrenologist bought a horse from the innocent farmer. Although the nag was old and in bad condition, it had been made to appear young and skit tish. .Moreover, though the farmer had paid but Cir> for the animal, he contrived without difficulty to unload him on the professor for i-MO. "It's wonderful." said ...

THE MONEYLENDER'S DAUGHTER. I. Beneath the shadow of a high, moss grown wall Maldwick pauscd/to light a cigarette. A strong breeze swept along the country road, and he had to make three attempts befocc. he ac complished his object. A slight sound from above him caused hfni to start and look up. He had 110 idea thai anyone was near. His upward glance encountered a lovely, startled face with a pair of wonderful violet eyes, in which laugh ter was swiftly changing to embar rassment. The girl was slim and graceful; her long, ripe-corn hair, not yet done up, was only restrained by a bow of white ribbon from floating over her shoulders in careless profu sion. She had been perched 011 a bough of a convenient elm 011 the other side of the wall. Now, in sudden confu sion, she began to clainber hurriedly down. Maldwick experienced a sense of regret that the wall intervened. He would have liked another glimpse of that ciiarming face. He hovered where he stood, await ing the sound of her light ...
No Near Richt Yet. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 4 February 1915
No Near Richt Vet. Two inmates of a Scotch asylum, working in the sanlen. decided on an attempt to escape. Watching their opportunity when their keeper was absent, they approached the wall. "Noo, bend (loon, Sandy." said the one. "and I'll climb up your shouther to the top, and then 1 11 pie a hand up tae." Sandy, of course, bent down. Tom. mounting his hack, gained the top of the wall and. dropping over on the other wide, shouted, as he prepared to make off: "I'm thinking, Sandy, you'll be bet ter bide another fortnicht, for you're' no near rlcht yet." Voting iiH'ii sow wild oats and oid ones rrow sage. After seeing a hook-reviewer at work we have come to the conclusion that one of the greatest discoveries of modern times is the art of judging books without having read them.
AM I MY BOY'S KEEPER? [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 11 February 1915
AM I MY GOVS KEEPER? There was a striking illustration in a recent Issue of the Chicago "Tri bune" that should be studied by every father and mother who is struggling with the boy problem. The scene is a neat living-room of a well-to-do laboring man. By the table sit the father and mother read ing. The father's paper, in a mo ment of abstraction, has fallen to his side, and the headlines are visible: "Boy .bandits terrorise; police unable to locate youthful gang which has sprung up in all parts of the city!" indicating the subject of his reading and subsequent abstraction. The pic ture is attended with the following dialogue:— Father: Where is Willie this even ing? Mother: I don't know, Henry; he went out just after supper. Did you want him for anything? Father: No; I just wondered where he was. What a sermon here! How many homes does this represent in our country! -The boy slipping out after supper, the parents unconscious of tlnir son's absence, and being re minded of the same onl...
NOVEL LIFE-SAVING DEVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 11 February 1915
NOVEL LIFE-SAVING DEVICE. The astonishingly lart;e percentage of the officers anil crew rescued from | the cruiser Hermes after the ship , was torpedoed in Dover Straits ap pears to have been due to a most in genious idea thought of by someone who evidently retained his presence of mind in the face of death. A sup ply of the life-saving pneumatic col lars ordered by the Admiralty had been expected, but the Hermes had to put to sea before these were re ceived. When the vessel was torpedoed no assistance was at hand. She was settling down, and a great disaster threatened, when someone thought of petrol tins, of 'which 400 were on board. The order was promptly given to empty the tins and screw down the stoppers, and on these tins scores of men who must otherwise have been drowned kept afloat until help arrived.

CHEERING UP THE OLD FOLKS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 11 February 1915
CHEERING UP THE OLD FOLKS. __ &lt; I was away for my holiday when I tho war broke out, and when I got back, three days later, I was quite shocked and surprised to see how much mother had altered during that short time. I li?d left her a brisk, bright old lady, the very model ot what a cheery, healthy, happy granny ought to be; and I came back to find her a poor, shaky, pitiful old thing, quite shrunk and drawn, and seeming to have no strength or life left in her. "Whatever has happened to her?" I asked my sister Nell, who lives with us and was responsible for mother during my absence. "Has she been fretting about Alfred?" That's my brother, who is a soldier and has been ordered off, of course. "I'm afraid so," said Nell. "She won't speak about it at all—I can't get a word out of her. But she's lost her appetite and her interest; she i doesn't seem to hear half that's said to her, and she spends most of her time sitting and staring in front of her, like that." She pointed out...
