A THIEF WHO DIDN'T OALL HIM SELF A THIEF. "Thank Heaven !" The words were spoken by a tall, . gaunt man of about thirty, who carried a pickaxe, spade, and a bundle, as he paused in front of a rough wooden shed. He had walked many, miles, and the sun was blazing as only an Austra lian sun can blaze, and the wayfarer who had worked many weary months at a claim and at last given it up in disgust, then set off hoping to find a- spot that would give himsome re turn for his toil. But the place to which he was bound was Still many miles distant, and he was wearyS'and footsore, therefore the sight of this unexpected shelter caused him to ex claim with thankfulness.

BEEF" T'tIPE-TO FRICASSE. Stew gently in milk anId water two founds of tripe, cut into strips of elual length a bunch of parsley and an onion. \When those hxave sinmmered for one hiur, add the peel of hail a lenron (yellow rind only) an ournce of butter rubbedhi in flour, and a quarter of a pint of cream. Season with a grate of nutmeg (bo careful not to o\erdo with this spice), adding salt antid Ipepper to taste. Simmer the w-hole for haLk an hour longer. Serve with the sauce round the tripe and a border of boiled rice beyond it. A good way to give stews a brown colour, without adding colouring, is to save the outSide of onions, and when washed add themn to stew, and boil together. This will be found a nlch nicer way than adding browinug. I'ic'les may be kept from becom ing muouldy by laying a little bag of mustard on the top tf the pickle jar.

A Winning Hazard. "ONE HUNDRED UP" AT THE KING OF INDOOR GAMES. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 19 June 1914
A Winning Hazard. A. "ONE HUNDRIED UP" AT THE KING OF INDOOR GAMES. (By MELBOURNE INMAN.) Some time ago Diggle was asked if it was true that he was-taking up golf. "Golf !" said Diggle. "You mean tiddley-winks !" T''hat sums up the average profes sional billiard player's attitude to wards other games. It is a case of billiards first, rest nowhere. I don't know one first-class player who takes any interest in any other sport or game. I've seen football and cricket, I've played ten nis and golf, but they all "bore nme stiff," as my prospective Transat lantic op.*ontnt Willie Ilo:1ppe would say. I've been playiing 1illiarids for as long as I can r'memte er. lar ly a dlay passes without my sp?nal'tlg the greater part of it at a billiard table. I've made the ganme the study of my life.

WIRELESS WAVES AND BIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 19 June 1914
WIRELESS WAVES AND BIflDS. Observations made in parts of the world where there are many wire less stations indicate that birds are disturbed in a singular way by the wireless waves. It is stated that gulls are apparently the princi pal sufferers, but that also large numbers of doves are in some iway' prevented from finding their way home when there are wireless sta tions in the line cf flight. This strange phenomenon is attributed to some effect of the ether waves not yet understood. Mrs. Smith was an ardent worker in the cause of the prevention of cruelty to animnls, and, when Mrs. Brown came to tea, told her a pa thetic tale of a coster's donkey that she had rescued from a cruel master the day before. The visitor was very interested, and, when she rose to go, said: "I am so glad you have told me all those fascinating things about animals, dear Mrs. Smith. I shall never see a donkey again without thLnking of your"
Tuning-Fork Tests. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 19 June 1914
Tuning-Fork Tests. ·--- +----- The tuning-fork is the latest mar vel of medicine. Dr. ,1amnes Can tile, a doctor who learned many strange clinical secrets lduring his. adventures in China, and who is to-day one of our greatest exlperi mentalists in the field of tropicnal mnedicine, has discovered that the tur.:ng-fork can prove of great hellp to physicians. IIy vibrating a tun ing fork and moe ing it about against the body, the density of the organs situated beneath can be gauged( almost to a hair's breadth. The fork used gives out the not, of C sharp: it has a specially-dlc signed striker attachment, so that it need not be remnoved from its position for the purpose of revi brating. Dr. Cantile in certain cases corn pared the results of his tuuing fork method with those obtained by means of X-rays, and found that the former were absolutely accurate IHei believes that the method will be v-ery useful when d(ealing with bro ken ribs and other bones, and he is now trying to tabulate the...
REAL EQUALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 19 June 1914
REAL EQUALITY. 'The wooing had progressed splei didly. It had even progressed to a point where she had been won that is, ostensibly won. If she proved to be a truthful girl, she would in time b)e his wife. If she were not truthful--well, a) man wants a wife who is not truthful. That's thewayn some men console themsel ves when they fail to marry. B3ut she seemed to be truthful, and as he drew her closer to him he whispered: "And when we are married, dear est, we will have the happiest home in all the wide, wide world I'" "No, George," she replied. "There can never be a harsh word inl our home." "No, George." "And when I conmec horme tired andl worn out with work at the office and the worries of business, you'll be kind to me ?"

Leading Port of the World -4----+ 'IThe very latest estimates of the value of the exports and imports of the ten leading ports of the world show that New York now stands at the head of ihe list, with an advan tage of nearily- two hundred million dollars over London. The "Marine Review" says that New York's to tal of exports and irmports, now valt el at 3,973,'90L,093 dollars, is over five times the amount of cont mnirce that was carried on by the entire country half a century ago. \As to the future, it is declared that the I'ainama Canal is bound to strengtlhen the lead now secured by this port; for the canal will bring New .York 1600 miles nearer to Yokohama than is Liverpool; 2500 miles inearer Sydney; 41000 miles nearer Wellington, New Zealand; and 257. miles nearer Valparaiso. lrcemen and lIamburg being some 500 miles further remov-ed fromn the canal than Liverpool, it is evident that the new conditions-the general re-arrangement of tradec routes wiIl tend to strengthen the posi...
To Tell the Age of an Egg. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 19 June 1914
To Tell the Age of an Egg. The method, explained below, of easily ascertaining whether an egg is fresh or otherwise, comes from the Agricultural Society of Saxony. All the apparatus required is a ves sel filled with water. Placed in the water, the egg, if fresh, will remain resting at the bottom of the vessel in a horizon tal position. If, however, the egg is not quite fresh, it. will rest with the big end raised higher than the small end, and the higher the big end is raised the older is the egg. An egg three weeks old rests diago nally at the bottom of the water. A three months old egg stands actually poised on its snmll end. An egg that is more than three mo?ths old will float. The reason why the egg acts thus, and itself answers the question. "'I-ow old are you ?" is simple. As an egg gets older it--unlike some persons-becomes more buoyant. The water contained in the white of the egg evaporates, and this causes the empty space at the thick end oi every egg to become enlarged. Th...
THE DEAD SEA A HEALTH RESORT. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 19 June 1914
THE DEAD SEA A HEALTH RESORT. Sir John Gray Hill, a Palestine explorer, believes that the curative value of the waters of the Dead Sea will some day make its shores a place of resort in the winter mnonths for curative purposes. " I have found the use of the Dead Sea water most invigorating," he says. "I get a supply at my house brought in old petroleum tins on donkey back, and use it somnewhat diluted for my nimorning tub." It may be some time before the inva lid tide sets that way, but the other attractions of the country should aid its popularity." The completed record of i'orkfor last year issued by the Royal Hu mane Society shows that the huge total of 867 cases of gallant action in saving or atteiipting to save life rave been dealt with, and that 984 persons have received recognition in the form of medal, .testimouial, or pecuniary award. As a result, 885 persons have been rescued, but in 136 cases help caime too late and life was lost; while ilrl 19 cases would-be rescuers als...
