Milk Oh! [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 8 August 1914

Milk Oh ! . It is gratifying to know that the milk supply of Kiehuiond is being well lopked after, and ' that the lacteal fluid is of a high standard. Numerous samples are consfantly forwar.ded: by the Inspector to th'e Analyst, subjected to an ex haustive analysis, and, - with fe.w exceptions, are passed as pure and unadulterated. Of the last 12 samples submitted, only one was found slightly below the standard. Inspector Smith is frequently on the ajert before daylight, and some times after dark, and. has to get all . the speed out of his fast pony at times to overtake "milky" in the distance for milk carters are always in a hurry when the Inspector is about Although he pays for the samples he takes, they don't want to be bothered with his custom.

WHEKE HE FAILED. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 8 August 1914

WHEKE HE FAILED. The new minister of a Perthshire kirl had occasion to complain to one of th« elders of the poorness of the collections. "Aye," remarked the worthy elder, "they're verra close, verra close, but the auld mpenister always used tae gie them a^start by putting three or four saxpences in the plate; of course," he added, "he'd tak his saxpences awa afterwards." The minister smiled, but resolved, ' nevertheless, to try iiie "auld meenis* ter's" plan. With a very sad face he had to report a failure on tne occasion of the next col" lection. " I placed seven sixpences In tho plate,' he remarked sadly to the elder,' to find the total collection was eight shillings and fourpence, and I am deeply grieved to say that three of tha sixpences are-missing."

PEACE. I love, yes I beat of all at times, The lonely solitute of bush or beach, ( To wander 'mong the bracken on the braes, -, And hear the crunching twiglets 'neath my feet. Or slowly walk along the river bank, And list the buzzing insect on the wing; Qr Kookaburra's cheery hearty laugh, Or Magpie's carol from a neighbouring J tree. . To scent the healthful odor of the gum, Or rich aroma from the wattle bloom, I And feel in all fan answering throb with nature.

TURQUOISE MINES. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 8 August 1914

TURQUOISE MINES. Persia is the only place in the world which produces turquoises, the most celebraied . mines being at Nishapur. Here jliere . are two villages entirely peopled by the;miners, who work at a depth of ninety feet, breaking up the rock into small pieces, after which th» turquoises are hammered out and left in the rough state. The recent popu larity of this stone created such a de mand that the mining was carried on night and day. There are also khaki (earth) mineB, which are worked entirely by women and children, as they have merely to dip up three feet of soil and sift it fo» the stones. The turquoise is formed of a sub stance allied to clay and contains some iron and copper, and, though good stones are rare, greenish or spotted oneg are of little value and are sold to poor Orientals for their tin rings. The co-. lour of a turquoise fades, but is revived when damped-in fact, in Eastern markets it is quite a common practice for an Oriental dealer to sell to the unsuspec...

SWEETHEARTS' SILVERY LAUGH [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 8 August 1914

SWEETHEARTS' SILVERY LAUGH A specialist on the throat and voice has discovered that every man un consciously betrays his character when he laughs. So does every woman. Therefore, to study your sweetheart's silvery laugh is to probe her-secret mind. -f .This learned specialist announces' that'each person laughs in one of the vowel sounds. The man who laughs in "A," who emits a hearty "Ha-ha!" is frank, loyal, and loves noise and movement. Those who laugh in "E" are phlegmatic, some of them even melan cholic. Their forced "He-he!" comes from no sense of amusement. The timid.'the Irresolute, the naive, and the pliable laugh in "I." So do children, says this student of laughs; and most people will agree that chil dren and foolish young women giggle in "I." The laugh in ''O" indicates on the one side generosity and good com panionship, on the other boldness or brutality. Never a villain in a melo drama but who mocked his victim with a "HoJho!" Those who laugh in "U" are mis anthropes. an...
