The Kiss Waltz. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 15 May 1914

The Kiss Waltz. People have formed different opinions about the Tango dance. Some say it is fine, and others re gard it as an "unseemly and ridicu lous" form of dancing which ought never to have been introduced — into lingland, at any late. There are signs,'though, that it is on the wane, this being largely due to the fact, writes a "Sunday Chronicle" Paris correspondent, "that though the Parisian gentler sex may be neat about their ankles, .many of them have too much avoirdupois ■to be able td effect a graceful move ment in the- Tango. In such places as Moutmarte a new fascina tion," he adds, "has come into prominence lately." It is known as the "Kiss Waltz." In the shaded and rainbow-tinted lime lights the new dance is highly fascinating, and many participants regard it as_beiug much more en trancing than the favorite "Dream Waltz." The writer further states that the new waltz, which has been dauced in some of the L,ondon . night clubs, has already caught on in England. A feature ...

You Can Afford It. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 15 May 1914

You Can Afford It. Very few are loo poor nowa days to take their country paper, and it is false economy to try and get along without it. Hardly a week passes without there appear ing in its columns something or other that will be of financial bene fit to the subscriber, who by the end of the year has probably made or saved or won.twenty times the subscription paid for it. The city papers dout take the place of the country ones though some people appear to think they do. The city papers are a'l right in their way, but they do not give you that - in which you .are most interested— your couuljrv news. You cautiot learn from them when and where your meetings are to be held—who are dying or who are marrying— who are moving in or who are mov ing out—cofirt proceedings—who wants to buy or sell farm or laud produce—in fact, hundreds of things of which it might be of particular importance for you to know. If you can afford to take only one paper, by all means take the one that is published i...

Why Your Stomach Hurts. A DOCTOR'S COMMON-SENSE ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 15 May 1914

! Why Your Stomach Hurts. Pain ill the stomach, variously called indigestion, dyspepsia, flatu lence, heart-burn, stomach - ache, &c , is usually attributed to some unnatural, abnormal or diseased condition of the stomach itself. Nothing, however, cculd be further from the truth. Nineteen times out of twenty the stojnach is absolutely healthy and normal, the pa'n and discomfort being entirely due to the acidity and fermentation of food which irritates and distends the stomach; although if this condition.: is allowed tp run on, in time the1 constant irritation of the acid is. likely to eat into the stomach walls and produce ulcers and sometimes cancer of the stomach. Medicine is useless in such a case. The. acid and fermenting food must be re moved by a stomach pump or an emetic, or you must neutralise the acid and stop the fermentation by taking half-a-teaspoouful of bisura ted maenesia in a little water. This latter is by far the simpler aiid safer method. Bisurated magnesi...

At Bamawrn Mr M'Ketizie in troduced a deputation of local set tlers, who made application for a racecourse reserve of 70 acres, and on their behalf Mr Call said that the rated price of the laud was 1,11 per acre. Apart from a grant they would expect to obtain "the land at cost price. The land was poor and had been left by many settlers. The necessity for a recreation reserve was admitted, and'a settler put a strong case for it. Mr Hilton said that there, was a difference of opiuion amongst them. Some thought that they could not finance the 70 acres, but 15 acres were not beyond their means. Mr Call said they were a poor community, but They would have the reserve even if they had to pay for it. Mr M'Kenzie said that the matt...

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 15 May 1914

LADIES' LETTER. (By "Irene.") A Melbourne girl writing from Lyons speaks of her visits to the shops, which are very beautiful and in which wares are attractively dis played, but she says one cannot help contrasting the life of the French shopgirl with that of the Melbourne girl, the wages and the hours being so different. In Lyons the shops open at seven in the morning and remain open until eight in the evening. Only a few of the best shops close on Satur day afternoon, and most of them are open on Sunday. The highest wage a girl reecives is 15/ a week, which is vastly different to that obtainable here. My correspondent has also been shown through several large silk warehouses, and says that crepe de chine has been quite ousted by taf fetas, and that to be quite chic every thing must show a touch of tartan. An interesting piece of fashion news has come from Paris. Burglars car ried away from an emporium 500 cor sets in motor-cars. Articles are known to have been carried away from em...

An agree ment was arrived at, the details of wh'ich were fully set out in a re port cf the conference. Briefly, the settlers are-to be divided into three classes, and, if they decide to abandon their allotments, the State will take over the improvements at their own valuation. Settlers whose blocks have been injured by salt will be provided with land from uuaffected areas until the district is properly drained and the mischief abated. The report of the Water Commission on the position was considered, and the remedial pro posals agreed upon at the conference were approved. If you've a boy you take a pride in just bring...
