THE SHAME OF EATING. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 3 September 1914

THE SHAME OF EATING. Eating is regarded as something to be ashamed of in some primitive 1 tribes, the original ground of the ! shame toeing associated with a fear i of evil spirits. The feeling of shame is not Inborn in mankind, and it as sumes very different forms in differ ent regions. A remnant of the super- ' stitious fear connected with the act of taking food appears in the ejacu lation "Prosit!" which in Germany is religiously uttered by the compan ions of a man who is aibout to take a drink. This Latin verbal form, the general meaning of which is "may it be beneficial," is now understood simply as the expression of wish that the drink wiij agree with the drink er's constitution; but it originally connoted the hope that the drink had not been bewitched. The division of labor between men and women was originally, and still is among primitive peoples, much more sharply defined than it is at present in civilised countries. This sharp division of labor brought about a separation a...

A SECRET OF CONSTANTINOPLE. The Wonderful Palace of Waters. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 3 September 1914

A SECRET OF., CONSTANTINOPLE.' < The Wonderful Palace of Waters. • There are few capital cities that have anything fo compare with that secret of Constantinople, called the Palace of Waters. It was suddenly discovered by accident not many years ago, that underlying, a part of the foun dations of the Turklch capital there is a hall or palace of striking magnifi cence, the roof of which is supported by thick pillars of marble. It forms to an unknown extent an underground reservoir of water. The origin of it no man can tell. Even tradition, and the city of the Sultan has many dealing with mystery and wonder, has nothing to say about the dark and mysterious Palace of Waters, or Yere-Batan-Serai. No entrance to it is known, except such as have come about through the subsidence of certain parts of its stu pendous overhead structure. The first evidence of its existence came to light on part of ^ts roof masonry caving in near the mosque of St. Sophia; then, in a yard near the Sub...

Old England. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 3 September 1914

Old England. An old farmer who had hardly ever been outside his native village had a son in London. After many press ing invitations, he consented to pay his son a visit. The old man on arriving, in London was fairly bewildered by the strange things he saw. His son could not make him comfortable, and, in con sequence, his visit -was a very short one. On returning to his home, the first person he met was his parson, who kindly asked him how he had enjoy ed himself. His reply was: "Very well, thank you, sir. But give me Old England; none o' your fur rin' parts for me." Listening to a Bpeaker, you can tell every school teacher in the audience by the way they look when he mis pronounces a word. Men in general are better pleased when their wives have a good dinner uopn the table than whentheir wives Bpeak Greek or talk politics.

Not Likely. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 3 September 1914

Not Likely. They were two bosom friends, tout although they were women, one of them had never confessed her age to the other. "Yes," she was saying, "I've kept the secret of my age ever since I was twenty." -^Really!" said her friend. "Never told anyone?" "Never." "Never?" "Never, never again!" "Never given the faintest 'hint?" "Not the slightest!" "I expect you will some time. You are bound to let the cat out of the bag when you least expect it" "Not likely! After I have kept a secret for ten years I'm not likely to give it away!" At home, more than anywhere else, you need to keep a bridle on vour ton gue, more especially if it is a tongue that is apt to say unkind things. A man entirely wrapped up in him self carries a small package.

Making Up fop Lost Time. Husband (to second wife): You don't cook like Alice, my first wife, used to do. No; it seems to me you can't cook like she used to. On another occasion iie remarked: "You are not so smart at getting about as Alice was. You don't appear to catch on where she left off." About this time a heavy rolling-pin came in contact with his head. "What do you mean by that?" he ex claimed, in agony. "I am doing the work that Alice ne glected," she replied, with evident sat isfaction. There was more peace in that household afterwards.

THE LOVELINESS OF LOVE The Cantankerous Crank on the Pathetic Passion. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 3 September 1914

THE LOVELINESS.OF LOVE The Cantankerous Crank on the Pathetic Passion. I am not cantankerous because I have never been in love, but because I have been in love so often—in unre quited love. And as onlookers see most of the game, I will lavish on young swains and love-sick lassies the wealth of my experience. Love takes the heart out of young men and puts heart into young girls. The young man will not say boo! to a goose. Strange things call forth a young man's love. Langorous legs in pur ple and transparent stockings, pretty and provoking faces, low-necked blous es, a go-away-closer look in the eye, rouse his ardor. The more ornamental and the less useful the maiden, the more he loves her. He would rather have a "skirt," as they call them in the States, who is "s.ome skirt," whose eyes are like midnight pools with the moon on them, whose hair is plenteous enough to stuff a cushion, and who doesn't know a scrubbing brush from a saucepan, than a squint-eyed girl who cooks like an ange...

DON'T TAKE AWAY THEIR PINS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 3 September 1914

DON'T TAKE AWAY THEIR PINS. A broker talked luminously the ' other day of the decline in the value of securities. He said we must be careful not to legislate too harshly against the country's vested interests, or the prosperity of these interests, and with it the country's prosperity, would be impaired. He illustrated his meaning with a story. There was | a school teacher, he said, who ex claimed impatiently one afternoon: "Johnny Jones, what are you fum bling with there?" Johnny hung his head and was si lent. But the tell-tale of the class spoke up: "It's a pin he's got, ma'am." "Well, take it from him," sffid the teacher, "and bring it here to me." This was done, and then, in a mol lified voice, the teacher said: "Now, Johnny Jones, get up and recite your history lesson." But Johnny did not obey. He blush ed, hung his head, and sat still. "Johnny," said the teacher, "rise, I tell you." Then the little fellow blurted out distressfully: "I can't, ma'am. That there pin you took is wh...

FOR THE FARMER. NITRIFICATION. A Simple Explanation. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 3 September 1914

FOR THE FARMER. ■# ■ • NITRIFICATION. A Simple Explanation. The average farmer has, as a rule, only a very vague idea as to what is meant by the4term "nitrification," but the following article by Messrs. Pat erson and Scott, which appeared in a recent issue of the Victorian "Jour nal of Agriculture," provides a sim ple explanation which should be read by every "man on the land":— Different Forms of Nitrogen.' Nitrogen exists in soils in several forms. It exists as nitrate nitrogen, as ammonia nitrogen, and as organic nitrogen. The nitrate form is the only one on which ordinary plants will reach their full development. The ammonia form of nitrogen is of im portance chiefly because it is more or less easily changed into the nitrate form. The organic form $f nitrogen is practically useless to plants. In all soils, by far the greatest bulk of the nitrogen is organic nitrogen. This kind of nitrogen is present in the soil humus, and in the various kinds of animal and vegetable refuse whic...

THE HAT-PIN MENACE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 3 September 1914

THE HAT-PIN MENACE. Everyone knows that a hat-pin point, protruding several inches beyond the brim of a woman's hat, is a source of danger to anyone in close proximity to the wearer of the pin. Probably no one sees the more serious conse quences so frequently as the eye specialist. Sometimes the injury con sists of a mere scratch, which heals readily and leaves no permanent de fect. On the other hand, every now and then the scratch becomes in fected, and serious impairment of sight, if not actual loss of the eye, re sults. One who has seen these bad results is for ever alarmed for him self and others when he sees a pro truding hat-pin point in a crowded car or theatre lobby, or wherever peo ple are closely crowded together. It ought not to be necessary to pass laws to prevent such accidents, but as the number of such cases does not de crease it would seem to be desirable to make the wearing of shorter hat pins obligatory. There are devices on the market for covering and protect ing ...

HIS BEST SHOT. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 3 September 1914

HIS BEST SHOT. He was a veteran footballer, and he had heen listening to the youthful enthusiasts at his favorite club. Sud denly he took the pipe out of his mouth, and turned to them. "Like to hear the story of my best shot?' he asked. "Rather," said some of the older members of the circle, who knew him for one of the most brilliant centre forwards of old days. "It was one of the club's most im portant matches; in fact, it was the final," began the quiet old man, "and to our dismay it looked like being a draw, when I got the ball. I can feel that ball now. Down the field I went, romping past every man, with the crowd roaring itself hoarse, till I got just within range. 'Shoot, man, shoot!' thundered the crowd. I drew back my foot and shot " "And you scored?" gasped the list eners. "Gentlemen, gentlemen, calm yourselves," said the quiet old man, pressing home some fresh tobacco in to a well-worn pipe. "I -was about to say I smashed four toes on the bottom bed-rail."
