Inter-State Items. VICTORIA. SAD CASE OF DESTITUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 14 May 1910
Inter-State Items. (From our Exchanges.) ? ~ ; VICTORIA. SAD CASE OF DESTITUTION. A respectable looking woman, who apparently felt her position keenly, applied to Messrs Dillon and Philpott, J's,P.', at Camber . well Court last week to have her two young children, whom she brought with her, taken over by the State and boarded out to her. She told a pitiable tale of how her husband had just been con victed of embezzlement, and sen tenced to eighteen months' im prisonment, and that in conse quence she had been left utterly destitute, and without any means for bringing up her children. « The Chairman pointed out that her application must be made to .the children's court. There was no children's- magistrate at pre sent in Camberwell, as the special - magistrate appointed had gone to reside in St. Kilda. If one of the -Camberwell justices who was a regular attendant at the Court had been appointed, the matter could have been dealt with at ' once. He regretted that this was not the case, ...
THROWING EGGS AT MOTOR CAR. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 14 May 1910
/ ? : ? ., -THROWING 'EGGS' AT MOTOR CAR. ' Harry Hance, aged eighteen ' years, was prosecuted at Brigh . ton for throwing a rotten egg in Ormond Road, Elwood, and pl-eaded ' not guilty.' Evidence was given that the defendant, accompanied by four others, hid behind a fence after dark on 10th April, and when Superintendent Lee, of the fire ' brigade,- was passing. in a motor ; car one of the party and de fendant threw rotten eggs, one of which struck Miss Lee on the side of the face and caused sue]? injury as resulted in medical ^t ,'' tention having to be given to her ? ' in a private hospital. '?? For the defence three boys John Taggart, James Gordon, and Richard Hance— testified . that accused did not throw an egg, but that one was thrown by .a companion of ' his named Bridgland.

The bench therefore fined de fen...
WHY TEETH DECAY. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 14 May 1910
???' v vyVHYr TEETH DECAY. ^ .,,7 5'^ When we hear that seventy-five per cent, of the' children 'attending the elementary schools are .suffering from decayed teeth it is time that food re foimers should pay especial attention to 'the improvements of ihe child ren's teeth.. The fact which stands out clearly is that' the teeth of the present generation are suffering from atrophy through the want of hard substances to bite on. Our ances tors, without the use of tooth-brushes ' \ or the knowledge of dentistry which we have to-day, possessed far better teeth than we do, and we must look to the change in diet as the chief ~» cause of the present degeneracy. It is for this, reason that the less refined kind of bread called 'seconds' should be used, after having been made crusty by rebaking in the oven. It will serve to cleanse the teeth, and at the same time oblige the children to eat slowly and properly masticate their food. Nuts may be given with - ' - advantage; they are cheap and as nu...

Crushed Him. 'How will you want your hair cut, sir?' said the talkative hairdresser to the man in the chair. ' 'Minus conversational prolixity,' re plied the patient. 'How's that, sir?'

ELECTION MEETINGS IN AMERICA. HOW THEY ARE CONDUCTED. THE COURTESY OF POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 14 May 1910
'ELECTION-MEET- INGS IN AMERICA ? 'HOW THEY ARE CON- ; ;; -?_ \ ..'?_/ JDUCTED. _ : ^.V.: THE COURTESY OF POLI ? The differences betwikt Ameri-: can and English — or Australian —methods in politics are more wonderful than even their agree ments. Great Britain has just passed through the most exciting election it has known tor a cen tury, and .Australia at . the moment we write is in the throes ot a political contest of at least a mildly strenuous sort ; and r, is interesting to study American methods and find how they agree with and where they differ from our own. There is plainly one stupendous difference. Political meetings in America know no 'pecklers,' and permit no inter ruptions ! The paradise of the political orator is to be. found in the United States and nowhere; else. Mr Sydney Brooks gives, in the ' Fortnightly Review,' a striking picture of this aspect of American politics ?. - The area of a Presidential con test is a continent ; more than fifteen million voters go to th...
Didn't Need It. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 14 May 1910
Didn't Need It. He walked into a newspaper office confidently and took a seat. 'Are you the manager?'. he asked, briskly. 'What can I do for you?' replied the newspaper man, in a noncommit tal tone. 'I'm a patent medicine manufac turer. Your paper has a pretty wide circulation, has it not?' 'Wide!' The newspaper man swung round in his chair. 'Wide! I should say so. We have a circulation great er by two to one than any other in the country — a sworn circulation, sir, .of 100,000 copies' daily, and it's a paid circulation, too, and we reach the families, sir. Our paper is read by 1,200,000 persons daily, and when you consider that our advertising rates are — well, they are so low that we are going to advance them 50 per cent, after the first of next month.

A SCHOOL-BOY'S ESSAY ON KING HENRY VIII. 'My, you ought to. have seen old Henry the Eighth when . he was in bloom. He was a blossom. He used to marry a new wife every day, and chop off her head next morning. And he would do it just as if he were or dering up eggs. 'Fetch up Nell Gwynn,' he says. They fetch her up. Next morning, 'Chop off her head!1 And they chop it off. 'Fetch up Jane ShQre,' he says; and up she comes. Next morning, 'Chop off her head!' — and they chop it off. 'Ring up Fair Rosamun.' Fair Rosamun answers the bell. Next morning, 'Chop off ner head!' 'Arid he made every one of them tell him a tale every night; and .he kept that up till he had hogged a thousand and one tales that way, and then he put them all in a book, and called it Domesday Book — which was a good name and stated the case . . . That was his style — he never gave anybody a chance. He had suspicions of his father, the Duke of Wellington. Well, what did he do? — ask him to show up? No — drowned him in a...
COINCIDENCES OF THE COMET. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 14 May 1910
COINCIDENCES OF THE COMET. It is an old superrtition that great national events and disasters are heralded by comets, eclipses, and other phenomena in tho heavens. Shakspeare makes fre quent use of the idea. When pleading witn urasar not to leave nis House on tne day^ that ended with his assassination, Calphurnia declares that — When beggars die there are no comets seen; The heavens themselves blaze forth the death of princes. Hubert reports to the troubled King John after the death of Prince Arthur — My lord* they say five moons were seen .to-night ; Pour fixed, and the fifth did whirl about The other four in wondrous motion. 'A comet'is nover soeri in heaven,' says Claudius, 'without implying disaster.' ? ? 'Halley's comet, .which . now appears in 'the' sky, is supposed to have been the ' flaming sword ' which^1 announced the destruction of Jerusalem. Joseplms says that' amongst other warnings there was a comet of the kind called Niphias. be cause their tales appear to represent t...

'That wasn't for us,' her husband said. 'It rang four times, and our call is two rings.'

The Huon Apples A LUSCIOUS FRUIT.
