ROCK CAKES. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 28 August 1915
ROCK CAKES. One pound of flour, half a pound of mar garine, or a mixture of this and very good dripping, a quarter of a pound of sugar, and the same of sultanas or currants, a little salt, and two teaspoonfuls of baking pow der. Beat the margarine well, add an egg, also well beaten, and mix thoroughly, then the sugar; beat well, and add gradually the currants and flour mixed with the baking powedr. You should have enough moisture as the mixture should be stiff, but if you need more add a very little milk. Drop the mixture on to a greased tin, in small pieces, us roughly as possible, leaving a good dis tance between each, as they spread a little in baking. Half the rind of a lemon and the juice is o nice addition; and to put from two to four ounces of ground rice in place of the same weight of the flour makes the cakes 'shorter.'

EPIDEMIC DISEASE. ??NIP IT IN THE BUD.' ' It's catching'— this is what people say when a malady 'spreads among them as fire spreads in dry grass ; the phrase states a fact without explanation, which is a pity, because if once you understand why ' it's catching,' you can prevent it catching instead of having to cure it — cure is often impossible, and is expensive. Now you can understand the flame running through grass, but you can only see the spread of disease by its results, because disease is spread by living germs or seeds, too small to see, and so light that air can carry and distribute them ; the only way to prevent Disease Germs. ' catching' is to kill them. To kill an invisible foe may seem difficult ; but in this case it is easy and cheap, for you can kill Disease Germs by meeting them at every point with something in hourly use and immediately fatal to them. Science has given us this in Lifebuoy Royal Disinfectant Soap, and its germ-killing power in hospitals and sanitation...

SOME USEFUL HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 28 August 1915
SOME USEFUL HINTS. Lemons may be kept a long time without becoming dry if put into a jar of water with a lid. The water should be changed once a week if the lemons are to be kept long. When used, they will be quite as firm as when frsh, and, if anything, more juicy. rft ft Vt lit Linen blinds can be made to look like new by adding a little powdered borax tq the last rinsing water and ironing the blinds while damp: | When stewing prunes add a 'spoonful of | marmalade to them.

Extension Estate. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 28 August 1915
Extension Estate. (To the Editor.) Sis, — Your correspondent of a few weeks ago complaining of the state of the Exten sion Estate had evidently good ground (or shall I say damp ground) to work on. Last Sunday, while out for a walk I thought I would stroll out towards the Extension Es tate. Stroll, did I Bay? An acrobatic per formance would be nearer the mark. In al most every street great pools of mud and slush confronted one, and how on earth women with children can get along in fine weather I'm sure I don't know. In wet weather, I think they must be hermits, for it must be a physical impossibility to 'at- tempt' to get to the business part of the to\vn. This state of affairs is not only con spicuous in the lower portions of the estate, but on some of the somewhat elevated por tions. Sir William McMillan, In speaking at a recruiting meeting the other day said, in speaking of the Germans, that they were 'hogs.' Now, not for one moment do I in fer that those who live out in the 'gard...
General News. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 28 August 1915
General News. The exchange of Russian and German prisoners has commenced. One hundred of the first 500 exchanged are minus a leg. * ? « * * * A recent court case brings to light the fact that there is a warder named Handel at Melbourne Gaol. Every 'jug' must have its Handel. The Red Cross Society has arranged to bake bread in Switzerland and send it to British prisoners in Germany. Consignments sent from England often reach their destina ' tion in an uneatable condition. - ( * »? ? » *? An old man named Harry Burvll, of Toon gabbie (Vic.) was asked the other day for a subscription towards the Red Cross Fund. 'Yes,' he said, 'ten quid — all the money I have in the world. But I can work and earn more. Better men than me have given more than all they have in their pockets.' Burvil is nearly bent double, with age. . ? * ? * ? * * Well-furred rabbit skin makes a beautiful vest.

WHERE THE COMPASS IS USELESS. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 28 August 1915
WHERE THE COMPASS IS USELESS. One of the most remarkable islands in the world is Bornholm, in. the Baltic. It consists chiefly of magnetite, and its mag netic influence makes it an object of fear to mariners, as it affects the ship's needles, and makes steering a matter of great dif ficulty. This influence is felt at a considerable distance, and is, indeed, so great that as soon as the island is sighted the mariners do not rely any more on their compass, but steer by the various lighthouses. Between Bornholm and the mainland is a bank of submerged rock, which is very dangerous to navigation, and vessels are frequently wrecked on it. The magnetic influence of this ore bank is so great that if a magnetic needle be sus pended in a boat over the bank it points downwards, and rearains'in a perpendicular line if it is not disturbed.
THE WIZARD OF WEMLEY. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 28 August 1915
THE WIZARD OF WEMLEY. The Wizard of Wemley was wise, He 'knew all about it' — and more. Quoth he, 'When my chimney thus smokes, It is caused by the draught from the door. 'Or, maybe, the weather's to blame — Perhaps it's the snow in the air; The birds may have built in the flue — I have known a bold starling build there. 'Or, again, if we climbed up to see, That the flue isn't straight we should find; That such a defect would cause smoke Is a fact one must bear in one's mind.' He read in his book for an hour. And then he exclaimed with a smile, 'The wind may have played on the roof, And have blown down the chimney a tile.' So down on his knees did he go, And stared for a very long while; He saw many new kinds of spot, Yet there wasn't the ghost of a tile! But the white China clog on the shelf, Who was sharp, though exceedingly small, Said, 'I'm able to guess it at once — His old chimney needs sweeping — that's all!'
THE PASHA'S BADGE. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 28 August 1915
THE PASHA'S BADGE. The distinctive badges of a Pasha is a horse's tail waving from the end of a staff enfowned with a gilt ball. The title, Pasha, is given to governors of Turkish provinces or to military or naval commanders of high rank. It was at one time applied only to princes of the blood. This word is made up of two words, pa, which means fort, and shah, a ruler, and signifies 'support of the ruler.' There are three grades of Pashas, distinguished by the number of horse's tails on their standards. Pashas of the highest order carry three tails at the end of the staff which has been mentioned. Pashas of two tails are governors of provinces, while the lowest rank are Pashas of one tail.
"KULTUR." [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 28 August 1915
' KULTUR.' (By a Loot) The 'mad monarch' is still going strong on his favorite harpsichord string re the glorious beneficence of 'Squarehead Kul tur!' Well, he'll get a big load of 'kultur' from Messrs. Kitchener and Joffre, and don't you forget it, Mr. 'Democrat.' He'll get such a load of 'kultur' that all the bones of great German philosophers, and, mind you, despite the terrible affairs going on now, the nation we are fighting has turn ed out great and brilliant men — men who, if it had not been for dirty Prussian militar ism, would have liberated Germany long ago from the national stigma which rests upon her to-day. Let us at least admit this frankly, and let us, at the same time, realise in the most vivid manner imaginable, the horrors of a military bureaucracy under the whip of a dirty, tainted Kaiser— a man who is willing and eager to go 'cobbers' with an equally tainted Mahommedan, the filthy, sensuous beast of Turkey, who has no greater or nobler mission on earth than the g...

THE "DEMOCRAT" AS AN ADVERTISING MEDIUM. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 28 August 1915
THE 'DEMOCRAT' AS AN ADVERTISING MEDIUM. An evidence of the value of the columns of the 'Democrat' as an advertising medium is shown by our issue of Saturday last. A person had a machine to sell, and advertised smae in our columns. In less than six hours no less than eight people came to see about it, but it was sold in less than an hour from the publication of our paper. Further, the same advertiser (Mr. J. T. McLeod) ad vertised his furniture and stationery stock, etc., for sale, with the result that he leaves Lithgow this morning, having quitted the whole of his stock to persons who had read the advertisement.
