The Express. THURSDAY, MAY 28, 1914. General Hamilton's Report. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 28 May 1914
21\c (!:xjn'CiV.'i. THURSDAY, MAY 'JS, 10li. General Hamilton's Report. To the politician the roporfc on the military forces of the Commonwealth iB ^specially interesting, b«cause it stresses the enormous importance of administration. This most of us are disposed to underrate; oar tendency is to judge Ministers almost wholly by the Dills they pass. In like way, I those who give but casual attention to ' the matter are tempted to base their estimate of the efficiency of an army a'lnio3t entirely on the number, physique, courage and discipline of its men. General Hamilton reminds 113 tine "the part the administrative); ollicer plays in war is fully na vital and as patriotic as that played by his j brother in-arms, the Gghter." This is a lesson which Great Britain should havo learnt in the Crimea, to which she sent her troops with sword3 tint ; would not cut, with boots that would not hold together, with inadequate supplies of food, largely unwholesome and in parts uneatable. It) was n...

Just Like a Man. "George," slio said, "before we wcro married you were always giving me I presents. Why don't you ever bring me anything now?" "My dear," replied George, "did you ever hear of a fisherman giving bait to a fish he had caught?" Then the kettle boiled over. Never look on the dark side; take sunny views of everything. To adore a man is not enough there is nothing the poor darling silly animal gets tired of so quickly as be ing adored. One has to keep him in terested.

Workmen's Compensation Act. TO BE SHORTLY GAZETEED. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 28 May 1914
Workmen's Compensation Act. TO BE SHORTLY GAZETEED. The coining into operation of the Work men's Compensation Act will not be inu'ch longer delayed. Victoria is the only State which has been dilatory in effective legisla tion on this point, The measure passed list session has endorsed the principle that tin industry mnst ba held responsible for the risks which ensue in carrying it on, and employers of labor are now called upon to face a new liability. For their protection some system of insurance is neecssary, and though private companies are quite willing to undertake this class of business, it has boen resolved that State insurauco shall also be provided. Mr A. M. Langhton, who will probably have charge of theadministra- | tion of the Act. has been sent to New Zea- ] land to investigate the conditions under j which the service is there carried on. He> has returned from this mission, and sub mitted a report ou which the new arrange- 1 ments will be based. When these pro posals h...
FEATS OF THE BLIND. Sightlessness Not Necessarily a Handicap to Success. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 28 May 1914
FEATS OF THE BLIND. Sightlessness Not Necessarily a Handicap to Success. It is really wonderful what the blind can learn to do for themselves. Quite lately, a blind, deaf and dumb girl wrote to the secretary of the in stitution where she had been trained to tell her that she was staying in the country, and was greatly enjoying the games of tennis and croquet. It is well known, of course, that El len Keller is similarly handicapped, yet she is one of the most learned women in the world, and her books are not only read in America, Britain and the Colonies, but are translated into many foreign languages. She has declared that if she met a person in lae Desert of Sahara whom she had met but once before, she would know instantly who it was by their charac teristic scent! In New York a blind barber is do ing extremely well, and it is said that he has quite as few slips of the razor as the average barber who has all his faculties. In fact, anything which re quires great delicacy of touch s...
RICHES IN MIDDLE AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 28 May 1914
RICHES IN MIDDLE AGE. The poetry of life gathers around its commencement and its close, just as the poet finds inspiration in the rising or setting sun. Infancy has its charm of innocence, youth has its charm of energy aiul hope, age has its charm of pathos. But around mid dle life there seems to gather no haloc of poetry. The bird that wakes the morning with its song is silent in the midday hour. The burden and heat of the day are not favorable to music. The poet who will celebrate the open brow of childhood or the furrowed cheek of age will find no inspiration in the anxious eye and busy front of middle life. The maiden, who moves fancy free among the meadows; anf Ihe tired face and eyes of tranquil resignation, bordered by silver hair, may alike provoke his muse. But who will sing of the middle-aged man or matron? The whole atmosphere of such lives lacks the poetic qual ity. Their existence is practical, pro .aic, dull. We find it hard to invest puch lives with poetry. But there ...

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 28 May 1914
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. Before cooking dried fruits, such as apricots or prunes, soalc them in boil ; ing water instead of cold, and when cooking add a teaspoonful of vinegar. This improves the flavor. A troublesome corn can be eased by a poultice composed of a thin slice of lemon ,vorn over it during the-day. To remove rusty screw, first ap ply a very hot iron to the head for a short time, then immediately use the screwdriver. To test the purity of coffee, pour cold water on it. If the water as sumes a brownish hue it may be con cluded that there is chicory with it. To remove red ink-stains from table linen, spread freshly-made mustard >ver the stain and leave for about half an hour. Then sponge off, and all trace of the ink will have disap peared. Cayenne papper is excellent to rid cupboards of mice. The floor should b? gone over carefully, and each hole stopped up with a piece of rag dip ped in water and then in cayenne pep per. For chapped hands take two or three slices of lemou, pl...
HIDE AND SEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 28 May 1914
HIDE AND SEEK. By It. C. MUNRO. Philip gazed through the fog at the windows of his brother's house, and decided that the - clergyman's dinner party therein, to which he was pledg ed, was no place for a man in his pre sent high spirits. 1-le had not quite got to the stage of exhilaration that leads a gentle man in evening dress to discuss poli tics with a night watchman; but he had just read the street corner fire alarm instructions twice. Also, in stead of swearing at an urchin who asked for cigarette cards, he had sub sidised him to the extent of a half penny towards the purchase of n bun. In short, he had liad four glasses of champagne and a benedictine, feeling that no self-re specting gentleman could fittingly celebrate in lemonade the departure of another. 1-Ie glanced at his watch. It was 6.45. It occurred to him that if he drove off at once he would be in time to intercept one of the convivialists who had gone home to dress They could gcr to a music-hall and make a night of i...
THE PIGGERY. MONEY IN PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 28 May 1914
THE PIGGERY. MONEY IN PIGS. r The rearing; of pigs was the sub ject of an interesting paper read by Mr.' F. Gamlin recently before the n.embers of the Otakelio (New Zea land) branch of the Farmers' Union. Pigs have the reputation of being dirty animals (said Mr. Gamlin), but if properly housed and looked after, are'one of the most profitable, as well as the most interesting, products of the farm, and it is surprising how few farms have a really well-equipped pig gery. It seems where the pig is con cerned "any old thing will do." The extra profit will soon repay the small expenditure on a good comfortable house. For general requirements I consider that a building 30ft. x 7ft., with wood floor, divided into four compartments, three for breeding sows, each 6ft. x 7ft., a rail placed about 10 inches out from .the wall and the same distance above the floor is neccssary to prevent the sow from overlaying her young. The remain ing space, 12ft. x 7ft., I use for a fat tening pen, each compa...
