LONDON'S CLEVEREST COOK. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 2 October 1914

LONDON'S CLEVEREST COOK. It is more satisfactory to have an accomplished woman cook than an accomplished chef in the kitchen, for the women are more resourceful, are less apt to make difficulties, and grumble less at their work. On the other hand, however, they are, as a rule, more extravagant than the men cooks, for they do not understand the ! economic side of kitchen finance. I It sounds very revolutionary, and quite contrary to the accepted view of men and women cooks. Neverthe less, that is the opinion of Mrs. Kosa Lewis, the world's cleverest cook chef—the woman who has invented dishes lor royalty, whose services are in great demand when famous host esses are entertaining royal guests, and who has contracted for many of the feasts for great Government de partments. She has cooked dinners for the regiments of the Household ' Cavalry, when they entertained a sovereign, and at one time controlle;! the kitchen of White's Club, while in her charge Mr. Astor puts his kitch ens when ...

FISH THAT EAT MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 2 October 1914

FISH THAT EAT MEN. Weird stories of fish monstrosities have been told by many disciples of I'aak Walton; but it has remained for Mr. Roosevelt to tell us of some finny freaks whose performances will want a lot of beating. During his recent lecture, at a meeting of the Royal Geographical Society, on his South American trip, he related that he came across one kind of fish, no larger than a trout, that bit .off one of his party's little toes, took a piece out of another man's leg, and the tips off two dogs' tails—a fitting companion, apparent ly, to the fish that went bird-nestin," drove the mother bird away, and was found wagging its tail over the edge of the nest while gobbling up the eggs. Mr. Roosevelt also mentioned an other fish—a 9ft. catfish—which was found with a monkey inside it. The fish, it appears, had jumped and caught the monkey when it had climbed down a branch to drink. Very extraordinary, too, is a horrible deep-sea angler fish, exhibited at the Royal Society recently...

Livingston -on Friday evening that the bill to construct tho l;ne between Alberton and Wonwron had passed through the House. The first intimation was given in the "Standard" war news special, and the question was asked if a trust was necessary, seeing that the Gov ernment was hurrying on the line to provide work for the unemployed, and that it was a developmental rail way.

The Government is determined to push on with the lino, which may be put in hand' before the trust is formed.—-"Standard."

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 2 October 1914

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor. Sir,—No importance is to be at tached to the cables that have ap peared in the press about the Sinn Fein Manifesto in Ireland. Sinn Fein mean3 "Ourselves," and the Sinn Fein movement was a breaking away by hot young bloods from the alow constitutional methods of the Irish Parliamentary Party. It was simply a toy revolution aud was kil led by ridicule. The Sinn Feiners coolly ignored British rule in Ire land, printing their own postage stamps, establishing their own Courts of Justice, appointing their own magistrates, etc. The boycott of all foreign manufactures was about the only sensible plank in their platform. In their young days (about six years ago) they ran a daily paper, which soon was re duced to • a weekly, and this soon died. They ran a candidate for Parliament, but ho was ignominious ly defeated. At present the Sinn Feiners are a negligible quantity and only capable of making noises. Nationalist Ireland is to a man be hind Redmond, ...

The Kind Man. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 2 October 1914

The Kind Man. Mr. Roosevelt tells about a beggar who was given a pair of boots by an old lady. The boots were too small [or him, so he pawned them and backed a horse with the proceeds. The horse came in last, but that really has nothing to do with the story. Some days later, encouraged by his former success, the beggar paid an other call cn the old lady. "But what have you done with the nice pair of boots I gave you the other day?" she asked suspiciously. "Why aren't you wearing them?" "They were too small for me, lidy,'* the man replied, "so I—I put them on a horse." "Put them on a horse!" excla.med the old lady. "I didn't Uno v that horses could wear boots, but it v/as very kind and thoughtful of vou. Here's half-a-crown [or you!"

A QUICK MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 2 October 1914

A QUICK MARRIAGE. Housewives who find the servant problem a source of endless worry may find some consolation in the fact that in no country is the matter a perfectly simple one. Misa Evelyn Adam, in "Behind the Screens" in Japan, describes some of the difficul ties of keeping servants in that coun try. The maidservants are untrust worthy, but they are gentle and cheap —while they stay. Unfortunately they are fond of playing the vanishing trick upon their mistresses. A lady in Toldo had a valuable ser vant of somewhat mature years, who rejoiced in the poetic name of "Oharu San"—the Honorable Miss Spring. One day at tea-time MisB Spring did not appear. The kitchen was deserted, the kettle was cold; half the luncheon-plates lay immersed in a bowl of soapy water, the other half stood on the sink, ready to be put away. The next morning Oharu San reap peared, and demanded the fragment o£ wages due to her since the begin ning of the month. The lady asked why she was leaving so suddenly. "...

Joseph's Programme. The mistress of the house is a cul tivated Bostonian of musical taste, and the whistling of the footman, who believed himself alone in the house, fretted her artistic soul. "Joseph," she called at last from the head of the back stairs, "please don't whistle those vulgar ragtime things!" "Yes, mem," returned Joseph, meekly; "I know, mem," he contin ued, with unexpected spirit; "but you can't expect a rhapsody of Liszt with cleaning the knives. That will come later, when I'm polishing the silver."

Not Guilty, My Lord! [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 2 October 1914

Not Guilty, My Lord! There's a good story being told just now of Mrs. Lloyd George's encoun ter with a Hertfordshire working man who wanted to know what her hus band did with all the money he got as Chancellor of the Exchequer. "Where do all those millions go?" he demanded. "It all goes for insurance and old age pensions, and the Navy, and so on," Mrs. Lloyd George replied. But her antagonist had all the fig ures at his finger-ends. So many million, he said, went for old-age pen sions, so many to the Navy, so many for insurance, and so on. "That leaves a million not accounted for," he proceeded accusingly. "Now, what about that other million?" "Oh, please believe me," cried Mrs. Lloyd George distractedly, "I haven't got It!"
