WOMEN'S INTERESTS. (By "AmbroBino.") "Loaves From a Housekeeper-'a Book'' is OBesutially aB English book, but while wo can't perhaps follow up some of tho advice given it is woll worth our while to read the book, for it is as refreshing and uncommon as a housewife's confabulation with a wise mother. Philosophy is tucked into many a leaf that might seem to the polite and distant mistress of servants 1 merely a recital of house-keeping ex I pericuces. j Over twenty years ago, it may. be i said, this anonymous writer publishud "From Kitchen to Garret," a book | | that ran into eleven editions, and the ■ present is the outcome of numberless j requests for another. 1' I hope,'' says ; j tho writer in a" preface, '' that some ! day conditions will bo even, easier than they are now, when many things are : ; specialised, and housekeeping is made | so mechanical that it has ceased to be ! an art." • j i So much is there packed into the | book in oyer three hundred pages that i the only wise ...
TIT FOR TAT. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 6 August 1914
TIT FOR TAT. Pat was in lodgings, and was greatly annoyed by the landlady helping her self to his provisions. She began by taking a piece of his butter, and when Pat came home she said : "Pat, I'm taking a little of your butter, but I'm not like other land ladies—I'm telling you." . Next day it was an egg, and so on. Every day there was something taken and put off with the same remark: "I'm not like other landladies, I'm telling you." Of course there was never any re ductions in Pat's bill. One Saturday his bill came to a larger amount than usual. Pat looked at it, bundled up a few things in a handkerchief, walked to the door, and said: "Landlady, I'm eloping^ I'm not like other lodgers—I'm telling youl"

HONEY AND ITS USES. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 6 August 1914
HONEY AND ITS USES. Honey might with advantage he more generally used than it is as an article of diet. The greatest part of tho honey produced in th© United States (says an American authority) is secured by the largo baking concerns. It is used in varying quantities in cakes and cookies, also those made with molasses, soon become so dry that they arc not. palatable. But honey cakes will keep in good condition al most-indefinitely. indeed, they seem to improve with age. In many homes honey is a luxury. Honey is food should not be considered a luxury, as a pound of "honey costs no more tnan a pound of candy, and is much bettei for tho children. Bread, butter and honey .is a luxury. Honey as food of diet as pies and cakes, that often make up the school luncheon. Can any housewife make up a complex mixture.- that is more delicious than wholesome bread, good butter and honey, to say nothing of digestibility. We have substituted honey for molas ses iu..cakes and cookies that call for sou...

CRUISERS ABROAD. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 6 August 1914
CRUISERS ABROAD. A striking change has come over the composition of the squadrons on for eign service within the last four years (Bays the "Army and Navy Gazette"). They are composed in some cases of j fewer ships than ordinary but these ' vessels are much more modern and efficient for tho duties required of them. An important 1 actor in this ■respect has been the construction of the "city" class of light cruisers. It was said at "the time these ships were designed that they would bo especially useful for foreign service, and it will now. be seen that practically all tho squadrons v abroad are leavened by them-. Tire-Cape Station is the latest to have a -ship of the type attached to ;it, the Nottingham having been selected to replace the Astraea. Mow_ great is the gain in the efficiency of the squadron by the change is mani fest when it., is remembered that tho Astraea,is over twenty years old, with a;speed of■about nineteen knots, and an armament of two 6 inch and eight 4.7 in guns...

HERE AND THERE. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 6 August 1914
HERE AND THERE. Dr. Bashford, Director of tho Im perial Cancer Research Fund Labora tory, in a lecture at the recent Royal a.imtary institute, laid down rules for the avoidance of cancer, which may be epitomised as follow. Cut down your tobacco allowance, take the pledge, and eat your dinner with the calm of a cow. A warning to the over-strenuous was uttered at a National Health Society meeting recently by Professor Stir ing. Severe bodily exercise, he said was incompatible with full digestive ac tivity. Mental fatigue greatly im paired bodily activity, and vice versa. Gla,nds, like muscles, suffered from fatigue, and the result of a "quick lunch" was to exhaust the glands which supply the digestive fluids. The se cret of health, said the lecturer, was to be found in rhythm. Between the heart beats was a regular pause, whicn permitted a restitution of matter and energy. On a larger scale, sleep , was such another quiescent period. Re- I pose was the necessary complement r.i fatigue....

PERUVIAN ANTIQUITIES. ("The Queen.") [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 6 August 1914
PERUVIAN ANTIQUITIES. ("Tlie Queen.' Man conies and goes. it is one of the liumlities of humanity that only a few races and individuals leave any lasting memories behind them. The works of their hands, too, die "wivn them. But this is not always so. In Peru, we come upon traces of vast civilisation of high order, of which we have no actual knowledge, save for some sculptured walls we are un able to decipher, and marvellous ruins of stone buildings wonderfully con structed. We have to content our selves with mere tradiions few and far between. History points to a Mongolian typo, swept away by the Iucas, and supplanted by them before the birth of Christ. But these early remains of an extinct people are of unrivalled interest. We have, how ever, some pre-Inca relics testifying to culture aud strong artistic tendencies and some of the texiles belonging to the pre-Inca period, as well as to the work of the great Inca area, have been handed down in rare perfection, though they date far be...
