MILL-BOY MILLIONAIRES. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 12 September 1914
MILL-BOY MILLIONAIRES. j "I think I have succeeded because I cared more for my credit than for my clothes." To Mr. Frederick Weyer haeuser, the lumber king and "secret millionaire" of America, who died re cently, is attributed this saying. It is probably true, for Weyerhaeuser, whose wealth is estimated at any thing up to £100,000,000, attributed his unusual success to his ability to gain and keep the trust of everyone, with whom he came into contact. Very little is Known of the personal ity of WeyerhaeuBor, wlioso entire life-work was based on the idea of secrecy. He went to America when he was about eighteen years of age, and began life as a youth in a saw mill. Ultimately he bought the mill and laid the foundation of his huge fortune, when, while on a visit to Wis consin forests, he realised that, for all their vastness, they were not in exhaustible, and that within a com paratively few years the supply of lumber would be incommensurate with its demaud. He therefore began to buy ...
KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 12 September 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. If when frying fish of any kind a little salt is sprinkled on the bottom of the pan when it is hot and the fat boiling, the fish can be easily turned without breaking in the least. Cut flowers will remain fresh long er if the stems are cut with a sharp knife instead of a pair of scissors. The latter compresses the stems and pre vents the water from reaching the top. Before frying bacon it is a good plan to put the rashers into boiling water for two or three minutes. They plump out to twice their ordinary thickness, and all chance is removed of their being too salt. Stains on white flannel can some times be removed by rubbing them with glycerine and yolk of egg mixed in equal quantities. Spread on the stain, leave for half an hour, then wash the garment as usual. Two drops of camphor on your toothbrush will give your mouth the freshest, cleanest- feeling imaginable, and will make your gums rosy and ab solutely prevent anything like cold sores or affections on your t...
PONY'S SWIMMING FEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 12 September 1914
PONY'S SWIMMING FEAT. The s.s. Loanda iay pitching and rolling in the West African surf off Accra, whilst cargo of various sorts was being discharged over her sides into surf boats, manned by Kroo boys. Various shouts went up when a couple of bales of Manchester goods fell out of the slings and into the sea. Shouts of glee from the Krooboys, but something stronger from the mate, who was in charge of unloading. The next load was a grey pony, which we had shipped at Las Palmas, consigned to a Government oflicial at Accra. Slings were fixed under tu pony's body, and he was hoisted by rope and derrick, then lowered into the waiting surf boat which was pitching up and down. As soon as the pony felt his feet touch the boat bottom, he started plunging about, and as these surf boats are little lar ger than a ship's boat, the expected happened. First the natives jumped clear of his heels into the sharlc-in fested sea, and the next moment the pony also, was swimming about. With shouts and gre...
BEAUTY FOR ALL. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 12 September 1914
BEAUTY FOR ALL. Ladies, this is a special article for you. 0£ course you wish to be pretty —you would not be a woman i£ you did not. But it may be you object to the use of cosmetics. All men don't like the taste of face-powder, and many' prefer to see these aids to beauty confined to the ladies of the stage. Besides, to use cosmetics pro perly is an art, and you may not un derstand how to apply that delicate make-up which adds so much to the appearance of the woman who is past the first bloom of youth. Nevertheless, we think you will be interested in the latest beauty hint, which introduces a principle in cos metics which you may have never tried; for there is a way to use rouge which is warranted to be free from all objections, and is given on the au thority of a medical journal o£ re pute. First go to any respectable drug gist or chemist, and ask for rouge ot' good quality. It need not be ex pensive—just good rouge, applied, not with a bit of chamois or rag, 'but with a rabbit's f...
ABERDEEN MAN'S LUCK. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 12 September 1914
ABERDEEN MAN'S LUCK. A visit which an Aberdeen business gentleman named Mr. A. M. Suther land paid to Rome about a year ago has had a somewhat unexpected but pleasing sequel. While travelling in the vicinity of the Italian capital, Mr. Sutherland was accosted toy a man be longing to the hawking fraternity and induced to buy as a memento of his visit a statuette, to all appear&nces made of bronze. The figure was that of (i Roman soldier, and the price paid for it was thirteen lires, equivalent to 10/10 in'English money. Shortly afterwards Mr. Sutherland was travelling between Florence and Venice, and. at a wayside junction a travelling bag, which formed part of his luggage, was missing. The bag contained the statuette, and its Iobs was reported to Cook's Tourist Agency. M nths passed, however, and Mr. Sutherland heard nothing of his missing bag, but recently the bag was recovered and forwarded to the owner. The statuette was found in tact, and, although not attaching much val...

PERFECT WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 12 September 1914
PERFECT WOMEN. If any woman wishes to know if she is a perfect specimen of her sex she has only to apply to the rules laid down for ascertaining the fact, and figure out the results. First as to height, tastes differ, hut the Medicean Venus is 5ft. Bin. in height, and this is held by many sculptors and artists to be the most admirable stature. For a woman of 5ft. 5in., 1381b. is the proper weight, and if she be well formed she can stand another 101b. without greatly showing it. When the arms are extended she should measure from tip of middle linger to tip of middle finger just 5ft. oin., exactly her own height. The length of her hand should be just a tenth of that, of her foot just a. sev enth, and the diameter of her chest a fifth. From the thighs to the ground she should measure just what she measures from the thighs to the top of the head. The knee should come exactly midway between the thigh and the heel. The distance from the elbow to the middle finger should be the same as the...
No Sympathy. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 12 September 1914
No Sympathy. "Waiter," said the man in the hotel dining-room, "there's a fly in this ice cream." "Serves him right, sir," replied the waiter- "Let him stay there and freeze to death. He was in the soup yesterday." "How was your speech received?" asked one Labor member of another. "When I sat down they said it wa3 the best thing I ever did," was the reply. _ ,
AGRICULTURE. ON PLOUGHING. Some Practical Hints. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 12 September 1914
[ AGRICULTURE. ON PLOUGHING. Some Practical Hints. A recent number of the "Lincoln Col lege Magazine" contains some excel lent hints on ploughing, given in the course of a lecture by Mr. W. Street, the farm overseer. More depends upon the quality of the ploughinD tuuu v farmers are aware of, for, as a rule, they think that good after-cultivation will cover up • the defects of bad ploughing. But it is well known that uneven plough ing shows up clearly in the succeed ing crops, for there is a marked dif ference in the crop obtained off half a paddock ploughed at 6%in. compared with that oft the other half ploughed ut 4% in. Straight ploughing is far better than crooked, for in taking a bend the plough is pulled away from its work and cannot pack the furrows as it should, the horses pulling one way, and the plough tending to go the other. This leaves a badly-packed furrow bot tom, which no amount of cultivation can properly remedy. It is therefore important that ploughing should be str...
Better Now Than Later. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 12 September 1914
Better Now Than Later. One of the shrewd lairds of Lan arkshire had evidently experienced the difficulties of collecting money lent to friends. "Laird," a neighbor accosted him one morning, "I need twenty poonds. If ye'll 'be guid enough to tak' ma note, ye'll hae yere money baclc agin in three months frae the day-" "Nae, Donald," replied the laird, "I canna do it." "But, laird, ye hae often done the like fer yere friends." "Nae, mon, I canna obleege ye." "But, laird " "Will ye listen to me, Donald? As soon as I took yere note ye'd draw the twenty poonds, would ye no?" Donald couW not. deny that he would. "I ken ye wee], Donald," the laird continued, "and I ken that in three months ye'd nae be ready to pay me ma money.' Then, ye ken, we'd quar rel. But if -we're to quarrel, Donald, I'd rather do it noo, 'when I hae ina twenty poonda In ma pocket."
WOMAN'S WORLD. THE BRIDE OF HER SON. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 12 September 1914
WOMAN'S WORLD. THE BRIDE OF HER SON. No moment in a woman's life is quite so diliicult as that in which she meets her son's future wife for the iirst time. Perhaps the moment is al mo-t as diliicult for the fiancee, but she possesses the glorious seit'-eonll dence of youth, and cannot quite grasp the view-point of tho woman who knows that the marriage of her son means her loss, but his gain. A moth er rarely loses the love and friendship of a daughter who marries, but when a son weds she instinctively commits one or two possible grave errors—she iritates her daughter-in-law by medd ling in the affairs of the new little home, or, in her anxiety not to seem interfering, she stands aloof and ap pears indifferent. The force of convention makes it particularly difficult lor a woman to play successfully her role of mother in-law. Tradition says that all moth ers-in-law are disagreeable, officious creatures. And even if Daisy Is pre pared to be charming to her husband's mother, there is al...
HOW TO BE POPULAR. Be a good listener. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 12 September 1914
HOW TO BE POPULAR. Be a good listener. Always be ready to lend a hand. Never monopolise the conversation. Take a genuine interest in other people. The pains to remember names and faces. Look for the good in others, not for their faults. Forgive and forget injuries, but never forget benefits. Rejoice as genuinely in another's success as in your own. Have a kind word and a cheery, en couraging smile for every one. Learn to control yourself under the most trying circumstances. Don't get into the habit of doing lit tle duties that should be done by other people. It isn't quite fair to them. In this life everyone ought to do their own work if they are ;to grow as they should.
OVERDOING IT. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 12 September 1914
OVERDOING IT, "Yes," said the pert young lady, "men are becoming less polite towards women every day." "Oh, well," remarked the undoubted ly stout but charming young thing, "I'll be truthful. I can't say I have found men less polite than they used to be. Why, only yesterday, when I got into a tram-car, no less than three gentlemen rose and offered me their seats." "But wasn't that overdoing the thing dear?" smiled the red-cheeked girl. "Overdoing it, Miss Brown!" cried the stout lady. "I don't understand you. To me it seems impossible to overdo a courteous action." "Yes; but there was no call for three to offer their seats," said the other, "when two would have been quite sufficient." Has sorrow knocked at your door? Has circumstance foiled your wishes? Still there is life to be lived. Wait not till you are in happier mood, but set forward at once. Perchance then the happier mood will follow you. There is a Hindu proverb which can give a good deal of solid satis faction in a hard wo...
BIG BUBBLES. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 12 September 1914
BIG BUBBLES. How would you like to be able to blow a soap bubble as big as a trunk? This lias been accomplished by Dr. Boys (writes A. L>. Hodges, in the "Associated Sunday Magazines o£ America"), who has made them 30 inches in diameter. With large bub bles, of course, many experiments may be attempted that are not feas ible with small ones. The solution used is the well-known Plateau's solu tion, which consists of one port ol'e ate of soda to forty of water, to this being added a third its volume of glycerine. As a large bubble needs a good deal of feeding while it is be ing blown, Dr. Boys used a serrated cambric cloth put as a rim on the bubble-end of his pipe. This waB first saturated with the solution, and as the bubble grew and expanded it was fed from this. Scientifically, a bubble is a won derful thing. The film gets bo thin just 'before it bursts that there are only a few molecules from one side to the other. A.bubble with the same density inside as the air outside la a ...
II. "Is Miss Hazelton at home?" [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 12 September 1914
n. "Is Miss Hazelton at home?" The trim maid-servant who appeared at the door of the banker's substantial residence on Hampstead Heath re garded the visitor's lovely face with some curiosity aud interest. She knew it well as belonging to jMiss Al thea Sanden, leading lady and trage dienne at the Galaxy Theatre. "Yes, miss," she smiled. "Come this way, please." Althea, a vision of delight in tawny eolored ninon and lace, followed her conductress along a softly-carpeted corridor until she came to a portiere hung before an open door. Here the girl paused and, drawing asido the curtain, "Miss Althea Standen!" she announced, in important tones, and stood admiringly aside as Althea pass ed in with a faint silken rustle and a delicious fragrance of violets. Already in anticipation the maid was describing in detail to her fellow servants the beauty and wonderful clothes of the famous actress, and, bubbling with excitement, she dropped the curtain into place and sped away to the kitchen. At ...
THE LADDER OF FAME. I. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 12 September 1914
THE LADDER OF FAME. I. "Then it's true—you are really go ing to lie married?" The anguish that underlay the low spoken words—the stricken look of the woman who uttered them—escap ed the notice ot the man, who stood with his face to the fireplace, study ing a picture on the opposite wall. But he was not thinking of the picture at all, for in his eyes was a dreamy look of happiness that told the watch er all too surely of the self-absorptiou that enveloped him. "Yes," lie said, slowly and lingoring ly, as though he were feeding on the happiness that had come to him. "\cs, I am really going to he married; and" —turning to his companion—"I had to come and tell you first, Althea, for • we've been such pals, you and.. I, " haven't we?" She drew a short, sharp breath, and turned to the window. "When is it to he—your wedding, I mean?" she asked, in a stifled voice. "In .Tune." He laughed joyously. "Beautiful, leafy June. What better month could one have?" The words fell like ice on the liea...
