WOMAN'S WORLD. HINTS TO MOTHERS. Some Useful Suggestions About the Care and Training of Children. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 29 May 1914

WOMAN'S WORLD. HINTS TO IYIOTHER8. Some Useful Suggestions About the Care and Training of Children. All children possess imagination in a greator or less degree, and in the management of the nursery this facul ty may bo ranked among the import ant ones. In trifling matters, where no real principle is involved I always consider the easiest way the best way, as, for instance, this morning, when my three-year-old girlie took it into her head not to be dressed as usual and curling her tiny pink toeB be neath her gown, declaring mlscliiev osuly she wouldn't have any 'tock in's on at all." For a minute I was nonplussed. Baby had not ben well for several days and was Just in the humor to refbel vigorously . against enforced obedience. Papa was in the . sound morning sleep that beneilts a night worker, a cry must be avoided if pos sible, so, as a thought struck me, I held the small stocking invitingly open and Bald pleasantly, "The naugh ty little food said it wouldn't go into this stocking...

SECRET NAVAL CODE BOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 29 May 1914

SECRET'NAVAL CODE BOOK. Few things are BO jealously guarded as the secret code book of the Uni ted States Navy. It is a <book of sig nals-not the ordinary "wig-wag" sig nals used in the daily direction of the fleet by a commanding officer-but a code of signals to toe UBed solely in time of war and In the presence of an enemy. These secret code hooks are Issued only to the executive officers of a ship, who ure enjoined to protect them against theft by every possible means. These hooks are threatened not so much by the ordinary thief as by secret emissaries of other Govern ments who desire to obtain knowledge of what the battleships would do in time of action. Governments have no scruples againBt theft In such cases. The loss of one of these secret code books by an officer, unless explained to the entire satisfaction of the Sec retary of the Navy, would mean court martial and probable expulsion from the service.

THE MISSION OF FLOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 29 May 1914

THE MISSION OF FLOWERS. Mr. Rider Haggard as a novelist has thrilled thousands, but never, perhaps, did his pen do better work than when It formed the following words, constituting, as they do, an enthusiastic and an effective "appre ciation" of flowers: "I adore flowers," says some lady, contemplating a bouquet of orchids or prize chrysanthemums that others have raised at her.expense. But she never watched the wonder of their growth; she never saw the shoot start to life; or the pseudo-bulb form; or day by day the flower spike ma ture. All that such a one cares for is the blaze of color when It comes, If even she really cares for this. With those who love the flowers, who, whatever their opportunities, are gar deners horn, it is otherwise. The poor woman, for example, worn out with want, a dweller, perhaps, In the grimy slum of some vast city, who nurtures on the window-sill of her one room a cactus or a rose cut ting. When the cactus opens its gorgeous dazzling cup, white as the r...

LIVE AND LET LIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 29 May 1914

LIVE AND LET LIVE. At a travelling circus many years ago a clever and pretty trick of horsemanship used to be performed. A horse was led Into the ring carry ing on his back what looked like an old tar barrel, with which he trotted at first slowly round. Presently ha began to quicken his pace, and as he did so, one end of the barrel wa3 pushed out by some unknown means, and out popped a human head; next a pair of arms pushed themselves out; then the barrel fell to pieces, and a rough-looking countryman, dressed in a loose, shaggy coat, stood up on the horse's back, holding a whip in his hand, which he cracked. The horse at once broke Into a swift gallop, and the man pulled off the great coat, which he threw down, showing that ho had on another one underenath. As the horse went faster and faster, his rider stripped off his other coat; then a third; then a fourth. Ho seemed to have enough coa,ts on to furnish an old clothes shop, and ap parently he did not care in the least what became...

HOW NELSON LOST HIS EYE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 29 May 1914

HOW NELSON L08T HIS EYE. It is a curious fact that no one has been able to say precisely when and where Nelson lost his left eye. Sorao say that the disaster occurred during the Biego of Bastia, in 1793, while others decide that it was the siege of Calvi. According to Signor D. Liberato Abarca, General in the ser vice of the Nicaraguan Republic, both these accounts are false. He says that it was in the year 1780, when the future "god of the seas," then a post captain in the Royal Navy.^was cruis ing along the coast of Central Ameri ca, that he received the wound which added him to the liBt of one-eyed warriors. After inflicting every pos sible injury on the Spanish Colonies, Nelson resolved to take by assault the castle of San Carlos, de Nicara gua. With a flotilla of launches and other flat-bottomed boats, he rowed up the river of San Juan, which flows Into the Qulf of Mexico. The Spanish commander was laid up In bed with a severe Illness, and the garrison, terrified at the imposin...

A MAN'S LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 29 May 1914

MAN'S LIFE. A man's life is full of crosses. He comes into the world without his will; and the trip between the two is exceedingly rocky. The rule of the contraries is one of the import ant features of the trip. When he is little the big girls kiss him; but when he is grown up the little girls kiss him. If he is poor" he is a bad manager; if he is rich he is dishonest. If he needs credit he can't get it; if he Is prosperous everyone wants to lend him something. If he's in politics it's for what he can get out of it; if he's not interested in politics he is destitute of public spirit. If he doesn't give to charity he is a stingy cuss; if he does it is for show. If he is actively, religious he is a hypocrite; if he takes no interest in religion he is a hardened sinner. If he shows affection he is a soft specimen; if he seemB to care for no one he is cold-blooded. If he dies young there was a great future ahead of him; if he lives to an old age he has missed his calling.

While Mrs. Bellairs, in fear and trembling, had been hurrying towards the -shabby little shop of Isaac Morde cai, Captain O'Doyle, punctually at 12 o'clock, presented himself at the hotel in the Strand. He inquired for Mr. Kruger and sent up his card, on which was inscribed his full name and the cavalry regiment to which he belong ed. He was a remarkably good-look Ing young man and, what was far more to the point, the' generous and noble nature of his Irish heart shone through his steadfast, steady blue eyes. Captain O'Doyle, however, could not help wondering what a South African solicitor wanted with him. Bellairs had told him nothing beyond urging him very earnestly to go, naming the appointed hour, and'assurlng him that he could not but be pleased with Karl Kruger. He waited somewhat rest ...

CHARACTER. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 29 May 1914

CHARACTER. There is no instinct' Implanted in the breast of man so universally ac tive as the love of character. In this respect, the prince on his throne, the judge on his tench, the merchant in his counting-house, are alike. Touch them in whatever pertains to their worldly Interest-their business or their wealth-and your interference, though it may in_deed be rebuked, \v i! I ? yet be borne with comparative indif ference. Tamper with them .even in the matter of life, trifle with their health, expose them to disease, and still you Inflict; not a deadly wound; but let the pestiferous breath of slander breathe upon their fair fame, you touch their happiness in its mo3t vital part. To a-man of virtuous sensibilities and refined feelingB, there is nothing in life that can be placed in competi tion with it. It Is the chain that holds him to society, and the talis man that preserves his rank. Cast a mildew upon this, and you convert his moments of pleasure into sea sons of anxiety and bu...

Federation. CECIL RHODES' VIEW. I From fcho time that Cecil Khodes maclo the remarkable will leaving his , wealth for the extonsioa of tho British Empire, his purpose never altered-to devote his life to the construction of, a world-wide Empire, whose scattered portions should be closely knit by common ties of sentiment and mutual interest. But as affairs eventuated, says Gor don le Sueur, one of Mr Rhodes's pri vate secretaries, in his "Life of Cecil. Khodes," ho had to devote himBelf to the smaller task of working first for the federation of the colonies and States of South Africa. . . . While lie was a Unionist in politics (Unionism he regarded as synony mous with Imperialism), for the con summation of his ideal of a Federated Empire ho considered that a form of Home Rule was necessary in Ireland. Ho regarded a aottloraent with Ireland as the key of the federal system-a step towards perfect Home Rule for every part of the Empire, but " with control from Westminster." . . . Rhodes ...

Wells Drilled by Hand. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 29 May 1914

Wells Drilled by Hand, The Chinese of the province of' Szechuen have a noted method of drilling the oil, gas, and salt wells which are a feature of the province. The drilling is done by hand at the rate of two feet every 24 hours, so thut each well 2000 feet in depth takes over 3 years to complete- The method is as follows : A tube of hollow wood is sunk through the overlying soil till it rests on the solid rock, the tube being reinforced at the top with a large stone through which a hole has been cut. The boring bit, an iron rammer weighing from 200 to 300 pounds, is lot down through this tube by means of a cable of ratten cord attached by a swivel to a lever. The cable is so adjus ted that when the lever is horizontal the boring bit is just resting on the surface of the rock From the swivel attachment the cable passes to a rough drum, upon which it is wound- The drum consists of an axle with an iron pin at each extremity, sup ported at the lower end on a stone, and at the upper wo...
