GIGANTIC GUNS. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 16 May 1914

GIGANTIC GUNS. 1 America has choscn a new 14in. gun, which weighs fifty tons, apart from the carriage, for coast defence. The 12in. weapon is good for only seventy shots, whereas the new gun will stand nearly 250 before it is borne to tho "junk-pile." The projectile, which weighs 1,GG0 lb. and is 65in. long, is f:0 per cent, greater than that of the 12in. "filling," and the bigger weapon has SO per cent, longer range.

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 16 May 1914

KITCHEN WRINKLES. When boiling potatoes, add just a little sugar, as well as salt. They are far more floury than if only salt is added. The white of a raw egg applied to a burn or scald will prevent inflam mation, be soothing and cooling, and relieve the stinging pain. When a fish-kettle is not available for boiling the fish, place an old plate at the bottom of the saucepan and tie the fish in a piece of muslin. To test mussels, add an onion when cooking them. Should the onion turn black, the mussels should not be eat en, as it is a sign that they are not good. If your oven will not brown your pastry as well as you would like, put the cakes or tarts on the upper tray, and throw a little sugar on the floor of the oven. When you suspect worms at the roots of your plants, place a few un used matches, heads downwards, i:i the pots. The sulphur will kill the worms and the plants will be quite healthy again. To prevent the juice of pies from running over spread a thin rim of but ter aroun...

TO MAKE COAL LAST LONGER. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 16 May 1914

TO MAKE COAL LAST LONGER. Coal is not used as carefully as it might be. When breaking up a large lump of coal it is generally done by striking it vigorously in a haphazard fashion with the back of the axe, which wastes the coal by pounding it to a dust. Now a coal chisel costs but a few pence and this applied to the lump of coal along the grain or seam a- once splits it cleanly and without any waste of dust. Actor: What, back so soon? Didn't the play take? Actress: Yes, the play took; the manager took the receipts, the bai liii'ij the scenery, the landlords the trunks, and the author took to drink!

Footballers' Smoke Social A SUCCESSFUL FUNCTION. To mark the opening of a new season ami at the same time help to liquidate the debt of the club, the members and supporters of the Rainbow Football Club held a smoke night social on Wednesday night.

EPIDEMIC DISEASE. "NIP IT IN THE BUD." " It's catching"—this is what people say when a malady spreads among them as fire spreads • in dry grass ; the phrase states a fact without explanation, which is a pity, because if once you understand why " it's catching," you can prevent it catching instead of having to cure it—cure is often impossible, and is expensive. Now you can understand the flame running through grass, but you can only see the spread of disease by its results, because disease is spread by living germs or seeds, too small to see, and so light that air can carry and distribute them; the only way to prevent Disease Germs "catching" is to kill them. To kill an invisible foe may seem difficult; but in this case it is easy and cheap, for you can kill Disease Germs by meeting them at every point with something in hourly use and immediately fatal to them. Science has given us this in Lifebuoy Royal Disinfectant Soap, and its germ-killing power in hospitals and sanitation has st...

II. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 16 May 1914

II. Hugh, of course, was much dejected, and he would not deny it. To him it seemed monstrous that they must be sitting taere in that busy hotel, cheek by jowl with tourists who had come to see the citadel and to tear orange blossom from unoffending trees. The stories told of Dan I-Ieresford by his American friends were justified be yond cavil. The man was an eccen tric, who shut his doors upon -his fel lows when the whim toolc him, and would not open them even at the call of a woman's honor. It seemed in credible, but it was true. "He must have got my telegram," he said at the table—"it would liavo been returned to me, surely, if he re fused delivery." Mat settled tlia.t doubt by sending Legarre immediate ly to the post office. The fellow re turned. in ten minutes with the desir ed information.'

Sports and Pastimes —; « RAINBOW TURF CLUB An important meeting of the Rainbow Turf Club was held at Danckert's Royal Hotel 011 Thursday evening, under the presidency of Mr. Phil Ryan. After a budget of inward and outward corres pondence hud been disposed of, the question of putting a pipe drain or u wooden culvert across the racing track at the north end of the course was discussed at some length, and it was decided to refer the matter to tho ground committee. In connection with a suggestion to sow grass on ttie course, it was resolved to experiment with £1 worth oi seed. Reference was made to several bad pieces on the racing track and it was decided to place manure 011 the worst patches. The secretary was authorised to apply for Wednesday, January 20th (and failing that date,"Wednesday, January 13) for the next annual races. Instead of letting the racecourse reserve for graz ing, as in previous years, it was resolved to offer it to public auction for culti vation only. In connecti...

LITTLE BRAIN WAVES. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 16 May 1914

LITTLE SRA1N WAVES. Handsome men are generally only clotlies-props. Cryin' over spilt milk ain't no good —it on'y makes it skimmier. A man may find a woman's eyes beautiful and never know the exact color of them. The real man-hater doesn't exist, and the sham one gives up directly her lips are kissed. The capable woman will always have a baby to nurse, and the baby will be her husband. Poetry is a charming hobby, but there's no money in it, and it has a shocking effect on the hair. The happiest woman is the one who does not marry the man she loves; then she can go on loving him. Most women regard men as they do the Ten Commandments—something to be studied, but not obeyed. It's easiest to get a man to marry you when he first loses his head; then he'll do anything, and not know he's doing it. A platonic friendship usually ends in 'the woman losing her heart and the man his temper ... or the inau his appetite and the woman her complexion. Modest demeanor is not only becom ing but discr...

The Golf Season. OPENING DAY [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 16 May 1914

The Golf Season. OPENING DAY The golf season was opened on the local links on Wednesday afternoon, when a mixed foursome competition was played over a 12 hole course. In the early part of the afternoon the weather was favorable, if the strong wind be acceptcd, but before play ceased several heavy showers passed over the ground driving the golfers to shelter. No less than 30 players took part in the match, the trophies (silver egg cups and a pipe stand) being generously dona ted by the president (Mr. Rj'an) and Mrs. Ryan. In addition to the players a goodly number of spectators assembled on the ground to witness the initial display of the competitors, who, as might be ex pected, had not yet struck form. The links were in fairly good order, • the rain of the previous night having materially benefited the fairways. The competition was productive of some excellent golf, the winners being Miss Turner and Mr. Stevenson, with a total of 77 off the stick; a handi cap of 12 made their net sc...

AN ARTFUL MAID. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 16 May 1914

AN ARTFUL MAID. "If you fondly loved me, darling," In her ear he whispered low; "Why unto my first proposal, Did you sadden me with 'No?'" "Well," replied the happy maiden, In between a bill and coo, "I'm afraid i did it merely, Just to see what you would do." "But," her lover fond protested, In a tone approaching pain, "What if I had rushed off wildly, Never coming back again?" "That," she cried, "could not _havs happened, Well I knew what was in store, As I took a wee precaution— Darling, I—I locked the door!" The thing that doesn't cost any thing has a cute way of figuring in the expenses account. A woman is so used to pinning things that she can't understand why a man should make so much fuss about a missing button.
