WOMAN'S WORLD OUR GENIUS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 15 August 1914
WOMAN'S WORLD m OUR GENIUS. He cannot solve the Quintic, nor photo. graph a star. He can it play upon the flute, the lute, or mild guitar; Of Trivium and Quadrivium his know ledge it is nil; tie cannot judge the gradient in going down a hill' But yet I think you'll all admit he well deserves the name I've given him' upon this page, and here I state his claim: Though he cannot solve the Quintio, nor photograph a star. Though he cannot play upon the the lute, or mild guitar, Yet he can something do than iheM More wonderful by far: He's only six months old to-day, and he can say "Da-da!"

THE BABY. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 15 August 1914
THE BABY. A newspaper has awarded a prize for the best definition of a baby, and here are some of the attempts, tne prize de finition being first in order: . A tiny feather from-the wing of love, lroppea into the sacred lap of mother hoou. The bachelor's horror, the mother's treasure, and the despotic tyrant of the most republican household. The morning caller, noonday crawler, mid-night brawler. « - The latest edition of humanity, of which every couple think they possess thfc finest copy. A native of "all countries, who speaks the language of none. A thing we are expected to kiss and 1 ook as if we enjoyed it. A? little stranger with a free pass to the hearts best affections. 'jThat which makes home happier, .ove stronger, patience greater, handa busier, nights longer; days shorter, purses lighter, clothes shabbier, th* put forgotten, the future brighter.
GOOD TASTE AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 15 August 1914
GOOD TASTE AT HOME. It is wonderful what a tasteful wo .nan can do in the way of making hom« attractive. She can make a garret beautiful at little cost, for the beauty home depends more upon education irid refined taste than upon mere wealth. If there is no artist in the house it matters little that there is a large balance at the bank. There is usually no better excuse for a barren home than ignorance or carelessness. A litt.e mechanical skill can make brackets and shelves for walls. A trifle ?iaved from daily expenses can now and then put a new book upon the table or shelf. A thoughtful walk in ..he woods can gather leaves and ferns tor adorning the unpictured rooms. The 'expenditure of a few shillings can con vert the plain window into a conserve tory. In these and many other ways can a plain, barren room be changed into a scene of beauty.
THE MAGAI PLANT. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 15 August 1914
THE MAGAI PLANT. One of the most wonderful, useful, and interesting plants, is-the magai plant of Mexico. It is of the cac tus species, and often grows to a height of eight or nine feet, with long leaves" like the"'tentacles of an octopus. _ , , *. From a"'large bulb-like cavity, -A'l'.iDh forms in the" cehtre near the root, the Mexican gets his national drink-"pulque." ' His apparatus for extracting the 'juice consists of a bag of skin and two tubes, one of which he inserts in the cavity, and the other in his mouth, and then draws j vith his breath ; but the tubes are .'o constructed that nona of the li quid enters the mouth. This fluid is allowed to ferment, and forms a strong intoxicant. In addition to his drink, he also gets a fibre from the leaves, with which ha weaves a coarse kind of cloth, and also makes ropes so strong that the cowboys will have.no other lor their lassoes. Both these processes are doae by hand. ' On the edges of the. leaves .grow small, horny spikes, and wi...
CRIMINAL CATCHING SECRETS. DETECTIVES NOW MEASURE EYES, NOSE, AND EARS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 15 August 1914
CRIMINAL CATCHING SECRETS. I DETECTIVES ' NOW' 'MEASURE * / EYES,, NOSE, AND EARS. Police and criminologists are agreed that the identification >of cri minals by means 0r what is known as anthropometric - measurements that js, measurements of all the fea tures, head and body-is undoubted ly the most important' and valuable system ever discovered. But Al phonso BertiUon, , the hekd of the Identification -Department to the Pre fecture of Police of Paris, who founded the measurement system, claims^ to have-^discovered an even more marvellous method of identi fication. Given the colour "of yo'ur eyes, the shape of your nose, and the forma tion of your ears, and he ' claims to be able to pick out jn any crowd, though he has never seen you before and has no other details of your make-up., . In . order to prove the value of his' new' system, Bertil lon has accomplished this feat again and again,, to the satisfaction of the Police, and the results recorded are sa remarkable that his new ...

Municipal Elections POLLING DAY, THURSADY [sic], 27tu INST. CRS FLEVILL, KEMP and FEAR RETURNED UNOPPOSED. CONTESTS IN CENTRE AND SOUTH WARDS. THE MAYOR OPPOSED BY DR. &nbsp; O'SULLIVAN. &nbsp; Despite the constant grumbling one bears aneut defective lighting, licgiectcl streets and footpaths, etc., an-.l the many other sins of ommisiou and coini:iisioii councillors are said to bo guiltr of, nomination day lias again pass.d quietly-no feverish anxiety 011 the part of citizens to enter the municipal arena. Only one of the retiriug councillors has to entur upon a contest, viz., the Mayor (Cr "Webber, ll.L.A.,). True there is to be a contest in the South Ward, but there is no sitting councillor to oppose, as Cr Beachcroft decided to retire from municipal life, and there fore did not nominate. The candi dates for this seat are Mr M. Strahan and Mr B. Hodges. The Mayor (Cr. Gordon- Webber, J.P., M.L.A.), is too well-known to the ratepayers of Richmond to need any introduc...

WARM WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 22 August 1914
WARM WORK. An amusing story is told by an Indian Medical Service man, who. writing to the "British Medical Jour nal," states that ? the story was cur rent in his student days. A country doctor, returning from a Visit in the small hours of the morn ing, in the time of the '"body-snat chers," had to pass a secluded burial ground In which a deceased patient - had been interred the day berore. "When he reached the wall he saw a horse and trap standing unattend ed on the road outside. Looking cau tiously over the wall, he saw that two mien had just disinterred the corpse. Standing in the shadow of the wall, he__saw them bring out the body and place it in a sitting position on the seat of the trap, so that when they drove away the body, which they had wrapped in a dark cloak, would in the dim light look like a third man sitting between the other two. They then got over the wall again to fill in the grave. The doctor lifted the body down from the trap, laid it under the wall, and seated hi...
SLUTTONY IS A CARDINAL S[?]N. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 22 August 1914
SLUTTONY IS A CARDINAL. S&lt;N. By Dr. Frank Crane. Most people are gluttons. A glutton is one who eats more than he needs. When the amount you eat passes . beyond the necessary to keep body and mind in a fit condition, you become a glutton. _ It is an ugly word. That Is because it stands for an ugly thing. There is a great moral benefit in calling your faults by their shortest and clearest name. You will be more liable to be ashamed of yourself if you call that untruth of yours a lie instead of an evasion and yourself a liar instead of a diplomat. Be smooth and polite to others, for that you should; but be hard and honest with yourself. Overeating does probably more harm than over-drinking. Not that 16 is worse, but that it affects more people. Thousands who do not drink alcoholic liquors at all gorge themselves with useless food. Many so-called temperance people regularly poison themselves with su perfluous food. Overeating is not merely a. mistake, it is a crime. It is a ...
