Banana Wisdom. MANY USEFUL HINTS REGARDING AN EVERYDAY COMMODITY. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 14 May 1914

Banana Wisdom. many useful hints regard ing an everyday com modity. E wonder if it is because bananas are cheap, like the homely herring, thnt people do not realise all the possibilities in them. Bananas have no drawbacks. They are nourishing, they are fattoning for children, they are digestible. Perhaps they are unpopular in the kitchen because they are not under stood. The best way of converting cooks is to tell them what the banana can do. Here are a few recipes : SHAM STRAWBERRIES. Take half a dozen banana* and mnsh them to a pulp. Keep * on mashing and adding a little castor sugar until the fruit is like clot ted cream, and quite smooth, with out a lump remaining. Then add a lablespoonful of strawberry jam and whisk this all up together. Buy twopennyworth of cream and I whip it stiff. If you happen to I have a spare white of an egg left over from a cake, it is a good plan to whip the white to a stiff sno\v< and stir it in with the cream. Mix banana pulp with the jam ...

Wi.th her forsails torn to ribbons and the main-sails blown mvny, the "Hichard and Emily" took shelter under St. Abbs" Head. Here she sprang « leak, and it was neces sary to keep tho pumps going con tinuously. Seas breaking on board ripped away several feet of the bul warks, and one wave hurled the mate against the main winch, injuring his ribs. Captain J'ord had « nar row escape from being washed over board. The lifeboat having been smashed, the only hope of rescue was through a passing vessel.

A Huge Spider. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 14 May 1914

A Huge Spider. | The great spider known as the ■ " tarantula " is justly tin object. of dread to man and beast. One sort, called the inygale, will sometimes cover it square of six inches, and •weigh anything up to half a pound. A sharpy coat of hair covers the surface of the great spider. It is supplied 'with six strong, bony logs. and two dangerous pe dipalps, or strikers, each armed with r sharp sling and poison sue. The j strikers are frequently mistaken for j two front legs, and from this arises i the idea that the creature has stings on its feet. j Two powerful projections, resem j bling jaws, protrude from the head. Under each of these is a curved poi i stin fang, similar to a cat's claw, I but longer (exactly like those of a ] rattlesnake), which may be lifted, j extended, and hooked into the vic j tiui. A person thus stung or bit t ten must cut the tarantula away ; at once, for the spider does not . seem willing to unhook its fangs. The venomous tarantula, in spite of all di...

Turkish Women's Paper. I The first women editor in Turkey is Mndame Nurieh Tfnuum, and the i name of her paper, a daily, is "Ka- j ' dinear Dunjnsse," which translated, 1 means' "The Woman's World," This publication is specinlly run fc»v women, and the whole stuff repre sent what in Turkey still may be colled th* gentle sex.

Conductorless 'Buses. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 14 May 1914

Conductorless 'Buses. The omnibus conductor's existence is threatened ; it is possible that be fore many years are out he nnd his tribe -will be as extinct as the dodo or the post-boy. A new elec tric omnibus service which it is proposed to start in New Vorlc will be conduct orless entirely, the conductor's place being taken by a woman cashier. Passengers will enter the vehicle from the rear, passing the cage of the girl cashier and paying•*- their fares, and will leave by a front door, beside the driver. When either of these doors is open the electric current is automatically broken, and the omnibus slops. It is said that, the reason for em ploying women instead of men as cashiers is that the .authorities of the company have been persuaded by experience that women make morel courteous and conscientious em ployees for this kind of work, and so long as the physical require ments for conductors are elimi nated, nothing could be gained by employing men.
