KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 16 April 1914

KITCHEN WRINKLE8. 1 A strong solution of borax poured down sinks and drains will banish of fensive smells. A little ground .almonds mixed through a fruit, cake will prevent the ftuit sinking to-the bottom. If you want to heat a flat-iron in your room, a tin plate over the gas jet will enable you to heat the iron twice as quickly. Before blanching almonds soak them for two or three minutes iu botling water; the skin will- then slip off quite easily. Scorch marks on linen may be re moved by rubbing with a fresh-cut onion, the garment being afterwards soaked in .cold water. To stop hiccough, give the patient j a teaspoonful of .granulated sugar and' vinegar. If this does not afford in stant relief, repeat the dose. When boiling any kind of greens, use sugar in place of soda, whU-h gives the greens a much better flavor, but they then require a little longer cooking. . To "break in a new pen point quick ly, dip it in ink and hold it in the flame of a lighted match for a second. Wipe and ...

MAKING THE BISHOP LAUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 16 April 1914

MAKING THE BISHOP LAUGH. Probably one of the prettiest com pliments ever paid to the fair sex was that contained in the answer made by Dr. Potter, Bishop of New York, who was once asked by a lady why, in the many pictures and studies of angels exhibited, the angels were always de picted either as women or as young men without beards or moustaches. "Everyone knows," replied the Bishop, "that women naturally inherit the Kingdom of Heaven, but men only get in by a very close shave." This story is related' by the Rev. T. "Selby Henrey, ilcar of St. George (Brentford), whose little volume, en titled "Attic Salt," provides many an illustration of the fact that wit and appreciation of humor are not the least prominent characteristics of lead ing divines. He tells a story of the late Dr. Creighton, who once received a book from a second-rate author, to whom be replied by post, "I thank you very much for forwarding to me your book, and I promiBs you faithfully that I will not lose any time i...

THE FLAW. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 16 April 1914

THE FLAW. Within the church a chant ascends, The flower-decked aiBle divides The bridegroom's relations and friends From those that are the bride's. And he is there, a stalwart youth Of manly charm possessed, And she, a prize in very truth, In pearly satin dressed. . The vows are made, the prize is his, Yes, really his, at last! But as he claims the nuptial kiss His brow is overcast. And when the joybells peal on high, When wine and speeches flow, There comes into his sparkling eye A furtive look of woe. Beside him sits his chosen bride, In his she slips her hand, But though she smiles on him in pride She does not understand. His hidden anguish, though acute, Must all alone be borne— The toecap of his patent boot Is pressing on a corn. —Jessie Pope.

THE LOST LAKE OF GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 16 April 1914

THE LOST LAKE OF GOLD. Somewhere in north-western Ari zona—the precise whereabouts is now a matter of conjecture—is a lake of gold formed by Nature. On Decem ber 13, 1858, a party of gold-seekers, twenty-two men in all, were prospect ing in north-western Arizona when they came upon a band of nomad Apaches, who had with them consid erable gold, in the shape of nuggets and dust. After many pressing ques tions as to where they had obtained it, a half-bred Mexican volunteered to guide the white men to the spot for a consideration. He led them three hundred miles over a wild and desert country, to a spot near the head waters of the Gila river, where there were three mountain peaks in the form of a triangle. Here was a dried-up lake, the ancient bed a jumble of nuggets and gold-dust. The prospectors shov elled £40,000 worth into sacks, and twelve of ttiem set out with it to Port Yuma. They never reached Yuma, however, for they were am bushed and killed by Apaches in a defile since known a...

Revenge is Sweet. A master butcher gave his salesman a week's notice, and now he wishes he 'had paid him off at once. A lady came into the shop the day after he received notice of his dis charge and was shown a leg of mut ton. "I'm afraid that is rather too heavy for me," Bhe remarked. "I. think not, mum," replied the man. "You'see, the poor animal died of rap id consumption and fever and conse quently " But the lady had fled, and he re placed the joint with a grin of satis faction. "Sausages, sir? Certainly," he re marked, to another customer. "We have the very best Ever since the muzzling order has been in force we But he, too, had fled.

STOP COCKS AND FIRE PLUGS. SCARCITY OF THE LATTER. INSTRUCTION IN USE OF STOP COCKS TO BE SOUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 16 April 1914

STOP COCKS AND FIRE PLUQ8. SCARCITY OF THE LATTER. INSTRUCTION IN USE OF STOP COCKS TO BE SOUGHT. A matter which has an impor tant bearing on the fighting of outbreaks of fire was discussed at the monthly meeting of the Shepparton Fire Brigade on Tuesday night. Gap Lain Hundle, in introducing the subject, laid stress on the necessity of members of the bri ] gade being conversanL with the working of stop cocks, and a general knowledge of tne loca tion of such cocks. It had been apparent in almost every fire of recent years, that the pressure at the start was extremely poor, and that as the lire progressed, a ,vast improvement was -to be noticed. In the case of he reoent Are in Wyndham street, after the Uames were practically subdued, it was asked if one tank would do. One of the commissioners of the trust had remarked on the fact that the two tanks often re gistered a different height of water This variation in the water level of the tanks seemed to in dicate that, one could be turne...

GOWANGARDIE SOUTH. During the past week the weather has been line. Another shower of rain would help the growth of the young grass con siderably. Farmers have been busy ploughing and working fallow. Sowing nas commenced, and probably a larger area will be under crop this year than last. A most .successful open-air concert was held at the local State-school on Wednesday evening last. The night was al most perfect, and a very large number gathered together, visi tors travelling upwards of 20 miles to be present. The school is handicapped to a large ex tent, as the roll number, is small, and the children are small, but the performances by them were exceptionally good and the way in which they conducted themselves reflects credit upon their teacher (Miss Lindo).

^Deppanou news ^ ■ Published: , Monday and Thursday Evtnings. THURSDAY, APRIL 16. Bu-iiicts people of Shepparton are strangely remiss with regard to ibe advocacy of matters duec ly concerning tbeir own interesis. It is frequently the case that out^* side influence has to "be brought to bear to accomplish something that is for-ihe dirett benefit of town and district. Instances could be multi plied, if one cared to dive deep into ' "ancient" history—ancient, th3t is j to say, in a comparative sense. B it , it is not necessary to go further back ; than the last few years to prove tbe . assertion. The- establishment of : the Goulburn Valley freezing works ; in Shepparton, for instance, is the < result of the efforts of individuals far removed from the town. In fact, when the proposition was. first placed before residents, it was coldly re-' ceived. The "refrigerating" process . was applied to the scheme, mainly ' by a few selfish individuals, who s:.w a profitable source of t...

FREEZING WORKS AT SHEPPARTON. MR. F. G. CLARKE'S APPEAL. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 16 April 1914

FREEZING WORKS AT SHEPPARTON. Mil. F. G. CLARKE'S APPEAL. ;.Sir,—May I say a word about this :proposed freezing works. It appears to; me a considerable number tff slock raisers in tlie GoUUiurn Valley and the;Rivev iiia" are either not supporting- it or are doing so in a lukewarm fashion. Nothing that Lord Grey said oh his recent tour was more impressive than his advocacy of the benefits of co-operative ef forts among farmers, and after tlie'.' most careful enquiry-I'feel confident that the Shepparton Freezing Works only requires hearty and general support to make it an assured success. ' I have taken up 200 shares myself ml in doing so have mentally bound myself to stick to the en terprise through thick and thin until the end. A certain amount of self-denial may be necessary to start with, or, at any rate, apparent selfdenial, but I am satisfied that in the long run; it' will bene'fit me. In looking for-1 ward to the future of the .frozen meat.industry it appears to me there is a p...
