A well-known resident of the farming township of Weatherboard, in the Lear month district, had an unpleasant experi ence yesterday. He had" been paying visits to some friends in the district, and on returnir~ to his cottage, in which he lives alone, he found he had lost the key of the door. The situation was rendered aw kward- by the fact that the windows wer e all fastened, and there was no sky light to permit of an entry to the build ing. The unfortunate cottager, who is well advanced years, at last hit upon a pla-n which he thought would overcome the difficulty. He decided to gain an entry to the cottage by going down the chimney. The chimney was not a high one, so he procured a stroig piece of rein, and, se-. curely fastening one end to the house, he let the other end down the chimney, access to hichl. hle gained by a ladder. He locwered himself half way down the chim ney. and tlhen stuck fast. He was in ftlus ...

PAPERHANGING AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914
PAPERHANCINGC AT HOME. .Landlords are not overfond of paperina and piinting their tenants' abodes, and they usualy reckon that a roomn ought not to require atten tion of thist kind oftener than once in seven years. This seemns an-~age in the town, where smuts and dust soou play havoc with decorations, though in the country, where conditions are dif ferent, walls and paint keep fresh and clean for a long t~ime. ut why .await the landlord's pleasure? Why not take your courage in both hands, and, if your walls look dingy, paper them yourself?' Wall papers cost anything from dL per piece upwards. You can buy a very -nice one for 1/3 or 1/6 per piece, and the better qualities are easier to handle than the cheaper ones. They are usually 21 inches wide, and sold in lengths of 12- yards, so by measuring the walls you can reckon exactly the quantity you require. If a patt'erned paper is chosen, allow two or three extra yards, because you may have to vaste the material in matclhing the design...

Infection may be commuqicated to a whole city (and beyond it) from one single. patient, of which the small-pox epidemic is a case min point. It is due to tiny organ isms hardly visible through a microscope but intensely alive, thrown off in the course of the disease.
