With great pluckiness, two of the thre<> pretty daughters of the house turn ed to and cooked the luncheon, and the third, disguised in a cap and apron, posed as pariour-inaid.

CHARACTER IN THE MOUSTACHE [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 7 May 1914

| CHARACTER IN TUB MOUSTACHE I There is a fashion in moustaches I us in everything else. The lateBt freak • in this sphere is known as "the 'tooth-brush/' It is attained by at ' tempting a compromise between a \ moustache and a clean shave. That | is to say, either side of the upper ' lip iB shorn, and the remnant under \ the nose is cut short so as to pre 1 sent an aggressive array of bristle for the admiration of all beholders. At present its use is largely con fined to the genus "nut," who had time and inclination to study his personal appearance. In Germany, which has hitherto been associated with the Kaiser type of horned {moustache, the "tooth-brush" has j 'made its appearance. ! The authorities who rule most things in that country, have not yet imposed any voto so far as the gene ral community is concerned, but sol diers are now forbidden to curtail their moustaches in a manner that [ "is irreconcilable with- the true Ger- j man character." It iB not easy to read character in...

CHICAGO'S WOMEN POLICE [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 7 May 1914

CHICAGO'S WOMKN POUCH i Chicago is so satisfied with its ex ; periment with police women, ten of . whom were appointed recently to as sist in reforming the morals and , manners of the great lake city, that : the Superintendent of Police has ask ed the City Council to allow him to employ fifteen more women police.

LOTUS-EATERS. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 7 May 1914

LOTUS-EATERS. The inhabitants of Norfolk Island conic qb a curious surprise in this present age of rush, scurry, and greed for gold. Owing partly to the strain of Tahitian blood, partly to the kindly climate and fertile soil of the island of hia. adoption, and a good deal to the system of spoon-feeding to which Britain has treated him, the Norfolker has acquired a placi dity of temperament and aversion to work of any kind, which is quite ar cadian. It is doubtful, therefore, whether Australian control will be welcomed by the happy-go-lucky inhabitants. " Under the Imperial Government, the' Island is practically a free port, and goods may be obtained as chcaply— and in some cases cheaper—than in Sydney. Many of the interloper*, (60 named by the true Xorfolkern) obtain their wearing apparel from England, and receive them, through the post, at much less cost than the retail price in Australia. All these advantages will cease when the Aus tralian Customs dues have to be paid, and living...

ENGLISH EELS FOR GERMANY [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 7 May 1914

ENGLISH EELS FOR GRIUUW Stewed eels and col pic were once esteemed dainties by English peoplr ; but nowadays they tend to disappear from the table. They have become almost as scarce as rook pie. In Germany this change of taste has not become apparent. The Clcr man loves eels, and cannot have ton many of them. A few years ago the experiment was tried of transferrin); some lin.nni) English elvers from the Severn to an East Prussian lake called the •Paprotker See. These have thriven amazingly, as was proved when a few were caught and examined at the Hamburg Fishery Biological Labora tory Fifty-eight altogether were ex amined, three only being males. These were from 17 to IS 4 inches in length, while the females were from 18 to 25 inches, and the aver age weight was nine ounces. At the same age eels from the Elbe measured on an average only lojin. The lake in which the English eels were placed was thoroughly well sup plied with food, and the experiment seems to blio'.v that there is a g...
