THE KHEDIVE AND THE AMERICAN SALESMAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914
THE KHEDIVE AND THE AMERICAN SALESMAN. An amusing teminiscence of tho pireent Khedive of Egypt is told by lMr. E. Alexander Powell, late consular representative of the United States at Alexandria, in his book, "The Last Frontier." Mr. Powell says he re. ceived a call from the chairman of an American firm whose special line of business was the manufacture of algricultural and well-drilling machin ery. Mr. Powell's visitor explained that as he was passing through Egypt he thought it might be possible to ob tain an audience with the Khedive: Agriculture and its attendant prob lems of irrigation and fertilisation constitute the sole hobby and amuse mlent of the present Khedive, Abbas Hilmi. He is consequently a ready and liberal purchaser of all improved types of agricultural machinery, wihich he puts to practical use on his great estates. The request of my compatriot was duly transmitted to the grand master of ceremonies, and shortly thereafter a reply reached me that named the day and...
THE ANTIQUITY OF HAIRPINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914
THE ANTIQUITY OF HAIRPINS. Hairpins have been elaborated as a ileans of decoration since the earliest timnes. Particularly 'beautiful is the relicacy of their workmanship, two of .he finest specimens being the gold ,ins which were found at Salamis in "yprus, and are now in the British .luseum. ??ven more handsome were .he Saxon pins of a later date, with heir shank of brass, head of gold, dind embellishment of garnets and ,,varls. There were, too, the larger sort of pins so conspicuously and fre quently mentioned in the Bible. The nstrument driven by Jael through the temple of Sisera was probably a tent pin, while Delilah fastened the web on Samson's hair with a pin or batten. In the M3iddle Ages pins were a great fashion-indeed a necessity- n France, and we have it on record that in 1347 twelve thousand pins were ,emoved from the royal wardrobe for one of the French princesses. The -onvenience was probably a little later an reaching England, but In 1540 we sear of Queen Catherine (...

Avoiding Eye-Strain. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914
Avoiding Eye-Strain. Eye-strain is said to be largely a detect of civilisation. To counteract it, children should be encouraged to use their eyes at long range. A teacher who has a surprisingly small amount of eye-strain among her pupils attri butes it to her practice of making the scholars drop their work at the end of each hour and look out of the win dow. There is a contest as to who can see the farthest. This rests and trains the eyes and teaches observa tion. A woman who does fine sewing for her living found her eyes strained and weak. She was advised to drop her sewing every half-hour and look for a minute into space. Relief was quick, and the eye-strain disappeared. Short-sighted people who hold their book or work close will ease eye strain and lengthen their vision if they frequently remove their glasses and look at some object on the hori zon. The long-distance training will not, however, relieve eye-strain that comes from astigmatism, reckless dis regard of the eyes, or fr...

A BERESFORD IN WAR-TIME. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914
A BERESFORD IN WAR-TIME. The Beresfords have all been fa mous for the courage that borders on recklessness. Lord William Beres ford served in the Zulu War in 1879, winning the V.C., and in his book, "Campaigns of a War Correspondent," Mr. Melton Prior relates some striking stories of him: In the retreat Lord William Beres ford, turning around, saw the four legs of a white horse k-icking- in the air, Roalising at once that it belonged to one of our men, he rode straight for it, and found that the horse had been shot and that the rider had fallen half stunned. "Get up!" Lord William said to the man, but he seemed to dazed to an swer; whereupon Lord William said, "If you don't get up at once I will jump down and punch your head!" -at which the man did rise slowly. Lord William succeeded in helping him on to the horse behind him; once mounted, the man clutched Beresford around the waist, and so they gallop ed off. All the time this was taking place the Zulus were firing from a donga clo...

ELECTIVE MAGISTRATES.. : The Page .incident a .:o Port- Mel bourne court jlas been the: -means of draowiug attention to : hitherto unno ticed phase of the inulroduction of.party politics into m, ieipal life. In..the United States -;v know. the ,elective systeum for- magistrates ýand,;officials generally h"v oeen productive: of, cor ruption oc the wbrst kind, and from the talit of this we .havd ,econgratulated ourselves as being free.-. Mr.Page, how ever. elected Mayor on a party ticket, is justice of the peace for two years, ul I has shown the .public. to what .ugth he is prepared to go. When Mr Webber, shunned at Richmond for his disloyalty, could get no one else to sit on the bench with him, the valiant Mr 'age came across from Port Melbourne, and the pair dispensed Laborite justice to Richinond litigants. What kind of justice that would be one hesitates to say, considering Mr Page's perform ance at Port Melbourne, where, after failing to bully the bench, he openly avowed a irevio...
HEALTH NOTES. The Evil of Late Suppers. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914
EEALTH NOTES., The Evil of. Late Suppers. Late or heavy suppers are a com mpn cause of insomnia, especially that form of it in which people fall into a heavy sleep, only to awake with a start an hour or two later and find themselves unable to sleep again until early morning perhaps. Digestion comes almost to a dead stop during sleep, so that sufficient time should be allowed for the last meal to be dis posed of before the hour for retiring. This interval should be two hours at least, which mnearP that half-past eight is as'a rule late enough for the evening meal. In any case, the food which is taken then ought to be of a light nature, and not include pork, cold meat, or any other article of diet which is slow of digestion. Coffee and strong tea are unsuitable at this hour, as they tehd to cause sleep lessness. Cocoa, made with water, is a much better 'beverage for use with ti e evening meal or after it.
OUTRAGES ON LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914
OUTRAGES ON LABOR. The Labor party'in Vietoria:ha -latce I. been having some very unfair treat imeat. First of all we had the'45 non Lalbor members of Parliament refusing to let the Labor 20 run the Governmeht show, and draw Ministerial emoluments. That has been well described as treach ery and meanness of- the basest:ldnd. Thiln down at Port -Melbourne we have the Socialist Mayor, Mr Page, sat upon by a hard hearted Police Magistrate, and ordered to be quiet, just as if he were a common persoli, when he tried to show that his son should not be punish ed for street gambling, to which he had pleaded,1 guilty. Latest outrage of all is the closing of Parliament House by Speaker Johnson so that the House'.of firials might have one or two 'days ab solute holiday. This is a high handed outrage, according to'some Labor memr hers, who insist Parliament 'House should be open to members at all:times, and that there should always be in at tendance a host of- messengers tbo wait upon their High...
Impure Air and Scrofula. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914
Impure Air'and Scrofula. The atmosphere of all rooms should be frequently renewed by proper ven tilation. The best method of accom splishing this has been for many years a subject closely studied by sanitar inans. In rooms, and especially in bed rooms, the fireplace should always be left unclosed. The windows should be pulled down from the top, and up from the bottom. All rooms, and es pecially sleeping apartments, should oe well aired during the day. Impure air in bedrooms is considerd by emin ent medical authorities to be one o: the most potent causes of consumption and scrotula. A well-known French physician who has devoted much at tention to studies of this nature says: "It will often be found, on examina tion, that scrofulous diseases are caused by vitiated air, and it is not always necssary that there should have been a prolonged stay in such an atmosphere. Only a few hours each day is sufficient; and a person may live in a most healthy district,? pass the greater part of each...

CRICKET OR BASEBALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914
CRIICKET OR BASEBALL. 'rThe avowed object of the visit of the American baseballers 'to Australia is to try and arouse some enthusiasm here for the game. At present we have soec 32 elubs in and around Melbourne devoted to the game, and yet the public knuow practically nothing about it. The present visit is a peculiar one. The promoter, Mr Comiskey, pays all the expenscs, including the salaries of the players, and this means a very big sum. As Conmiskey lives by the game, it is to be presumed he sees some meancs where by he hopes to recoup himself in the blog run. The undertaking is certain by a plucky one, and just at present he has oue thing in his favor. Cricket, for many reasons, is out of favor just now, and it may be that the American baseball game may take its place as a puhlic favorite among summer games. Hitherto baseball has been played in Melbourne as a winter game, whereas its true place is among summer past. timnes, although after the strenuou.dis play by the "Giants and ...
OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. ELECTRIC RAILWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914
OUBR MELBOUBNE LETTERa, ELECTRIC RAILWAYS. Among the imany projects of the self styled country policy Watt Ministry is the scheme for the electrification of the suburban railways. This iminenso work will cost the country six or eight mil. lions sterling, while its success front a ,ailway point of view is not absolutely certain. That it would be of great ad vantage to metropolitan travellers in the long run is sure enough, but the question is will they pay for it?- Al ready the metropolis has one electric railway run by the Government, which is undoubtedly of great convenience to the people of the district concerned, but the loss involved has to be borne by the community as a whole, and this means by the producers. Other elcc. tric tramins in the same district either pay for themselves or the losses are met out of the local ratepayers' own funds. 'The St. Kilda-Brighton line is, however, a Government affair, and under Govern mnent management means a heavy an nual loss, although on Ne...
