He Lost Her. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 9 May 1914
He Lost Her. He had asked her to inaiTy him, and was waiting impatiently for an answer. "Will you expect me to keep house?" she asked. "No, indeed, my love. The servants will attend to all that." "You won't ask me to make hreau or broil beefsteaks?" "Certainly not, my angel. We sha:l have a cook." "And 1 will not be compelled to pound the wash-board?" "How can you ask such a ques tion? No, no!" "Then I cannot marry you. I hav? been brought up to do all these things, and I could not be happy in a life of idleness." When he realised what a treasure he had lost, he went sadly to his' luxurious home, and resolved to re main a bachelor for ever. "They're six fine sons ye have, f'nfpv.'' said Denis Flaherty to his . "They are," replied Casey. "Do ye have any trouble with I hem?" innuired Denis. "Trouble?" repeated Casey. "I've rever had to raise my hand to one of them, except in self-defence!"

Making Toast. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 9 May 1914
Making Toast. If you would have a slice of breat) so toasted ns to be pleasant to the palate, and wholesome and easily digested, never let ono particle of the surface be charred. Chestnut brown is even far too deep for ft good toast, ar.d the colour 01* :i fox is rather too deep. The nearer it can be kept to a straw* colour, the more delicious to tho taste and the more wholesome it will be. Thi! method of obtaining this is very, obvious. It consists in keeping the bread at a proper distance from the fire, and exposing1 it to a pro per heat for a due length of time. Those who "make the toast," or, more strictly speaking, mangle it,' are generally too lazy to take proper time for its preparation; and it is worthy of remark in many other cases, as well as in this one, that tho hurry of laziness is the very worst form under which that bnnu of good housewifery can appear. If not cut too thin, if held at the proper distance from the fire, awl continued long enough, care being taken that n...

Polite Melbourne. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 9 May 1914
Polite Melbourne. It was at a public-house in Mel bourne, where an old lady asked for a quartern of gin in a bottle. "Wo have three kinds, ma'am," said one of the grinning barmen. "We have oyxgen, hydrogen, and dry gin. Which will you take?" "Dry gin," replied the old lady se verely. When she was served she said: "1 was not aware your master .kept three asses before, but I notice that he does. "Where?" asked the surprised bar man. "Why, there," she said, pointing to the other two barmen. "There is Mr. Compass, Mr. Thomas, and—let me ses, they call you "Jack," don't they?" "Yes," replied the barman. "Then." she said, as she politely bowed herself out, "good-night, Jack ass !" A dispute had long existed in a gentleman's family between the cook and the coac!i:nan, about bringing the cream from the farm for breakfast. Their master one morning called them both before him that he might hear what they lm*d to say. The cook pleaded that the coach man was lounging about the kitchen the best ...
RED BOTTLES FOR MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 9 May 1914
RED BOTTLES FOR MILK. It Is we'.i known that colors have different, effects upon health. Some colors may soothe—green, for in stance—and others, like yellow, do the very opposite. The most remarkable of all colors, however, is red, which is noted for its healing qualities. ReJ has always 'been a color that has "made itself felt," as the saying goer,. Since good ness knows when, the Chinese have dressed those who are suffering from smallpox in carmine-colored clothes, and the people of Tongkin actually paint any children who catch measles red. Nor dees China stand alone in this respect. The Spaniards make a point not only of attiring victims of measles in a red "shirt," but also of feeding them with red syrup. Sensitive children should have their nursery walls covered with pa per in which the main color is orange, while red light is most helpful in some cases of skin disease. Red is not only good for human be ings, but it also acts as a preservative of milk. The people of Holland (wh...
WEALTH FROM SAWDUST. Gas and Bread Made From It. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 9 May 1914
WEALTH FROM SAWDUST. Gas and Bread "Made From It. American and Canadian sawmills have discovered that the sawdust which they hav« been perplexed, how to rid themselves of an a worthless encumbrance is worth at least £8 per ton. In Baltimore a chemist has perfected a process of extracting gas front Pawduat, adequate enough to supply a city like Ottawa with light and heat at f>d. per 1000ft. This is thought to porf.eful that around the .fereat sawmills, which have been emp tying their dust into the Ottawa River, a v'ai'lmty of new industries subsisting on it are likely to grow up. In Austria, Where everything in the shape of fuel is being carefully search ed for, sawdust is impregnated with a mixture of tarry substances and heated to the proper temperature; it is then passed over a plate of iron heated by steam, from which a screw conveyor takes it to a press, where it is compressed into briquettes of tlie required size. The press turns out about nineteen every minute, weigh ing tw...

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 9 May 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. To prevent windowjblind cords breaking, dust the cords, and then rul) them over with a well-greased rag. The snapping is caused >by friction, which impoverishes the cords, and ;ley are further weakened by the suti and weather. It is an excellent plan to keep in the kitchen a bottle filled with equal parts of linseed oil and lime-water, to alleviate the pain of .burns. Shake the bottle well before using the io tian, and keep the burned parts from the air by covering with lint. _ The best way to test silK is' to cut off a small piece and burn it. If It burns out quickly, leaving a clear, crisp, grey ash, the silk is pure; but if it smoulders and leaves a heavy fcddish-brown ash it has 'been treated with chemicals, and will not wear well. A very good way to prevent a cracK sd wash-hand basin from breaking 's to paint along the crack with white paint; then place along it a piece of wide tape, the length of the crack. Paint well over this, and when dry it will be as ...

AN ASTRONOMICAL PUZZLE. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 16 May 1914
AN ASTRONOMICAL PUZZLE. •One of our best known astrono mers was talking about difficul ties and intricacies that astronomy presents to the lay mind. "For instance," he said, smiling, "there is the story of the meteorite that fell on an Essex farm a year ago. It was a valuable meteorite and the landlord claimed it at once. " ' All minerals and metals on the land belong to me,' he said. • That's in the lease." "But the tenant demurred. ' This meteorite,' ho said, ' wasn't on the f::rrn, you must remember, when tho lease was drawn up.' "This was certainly a poser, but the landlord was equal to the occa sion, for ho promptly retorted : * Well, then, I claim it as flying game.' "But the tenant was ready for him. ' It's got neither wings nor feathers,' he said. * Therefore as ground game it is mine.' "How long they would have con tinued their argument I cannot say for at that moment a revenue offi cer came up and' proceeded to take possession of the meteorite. ' Be cause,' said he, 'it is...

An Indian Boy's Novel Nap. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 16 May 1914
Anlndian Boy's Novel Wap. Eminent medical men, as no doubt | M'ttmny of our readers have read, | have lately laid claim to having in vented an ontirely new method of Inducing sleep. . Briefly described, it consists oi" a suitably arranged j Led ami special appuratus, whereby I persons suffering from insomnia are ! induced to sleep, the special ap- | parntus being an arrangement of pipes so as to give a continual flow of cold water over the fore- | head of the patient. That the in vention should prove successful there can be no doubt. That it is : by no means a new one is proved by the following article. Indeed, it is almost as ancient a practice in India as is the history of that won drous land. In the mountain stations of India, which are inhabited by Europeans, , notably the Himalayan Range, linen is usually washed by women (na tivo) in small artificially constructed pools. -These are as a rule fed by | Bprings or mountain streams which flow very rapidly down the moun tain side.

QUEER. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 16 May 1914
queer: The origin o£ ia». word "queer" is due. to Quiii. He bet one hundred .pounds with a nobleman one evening that , by the next morning at break fast time there would be a word in most' people's mouths that was never heard before. That night, when the theatre closed, he- got all the "supers" and others whom he had hired, furnished each with a large lump of chalk, and in structed one and all to go through the principal streets of London and chalk on' the pavement the word "Queer." The next morning people were con founded. by the writing on the flags. Some believed it was significant of danger—that a secret enemy was near, and this was h^ watchword; so the word went around in a most ama zing: way. It might be said-to be not "]*■: most' people's- mouths," but in "everybody's mouth." Quin, of course, woh the. wager.
