A Football Sensation. SPECTATORS AND PLAYERS IN DANGER. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 15 May 1914
A Football Sensation. SPECTATORS AND PLAYERS IN DANGER.' ■ Maddened by the red jerseys ot one of the teams, a bull rushed the football field at Clayton on Satur day. When the .bull, rushed the ground (says the "Argus") a wild scatter for shelter followed. The women spectators picked up Iheir skirts in their hands, and several of them-half-jumped, while others half-fell over an adjoining fence into a market.gardener's, property. When the bull reache'd the - cen tre of the playing ground most of the remaining players and specta tors were fighting and pushing amongst themselves to get under j the cover of the dressing-room. The bull first charged the ball, which the umpire had hurriedly dropped, but, turning in the direc tion of the dressing-room, the bull saw the red jerseys of the Clayton players mingling with the sombre | clothing ot the others Xoweriug his head, and bellowing loudly, it i made another rush towards the door of the dressing-room. It was then noticed that an iron coll...
No Real Change. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 15 May 1914
No Real Change, A well-known M.P. at a dinner-party the other day said of a Bill that he disliked: "I object to this bill because it would accomplish nothing. It would make no real change. It would be like the case of the actor and the canal boat-captain. "There was once upon a time an actor who, after an enforced idleness 01 two months, was lucky enough to secure an engagement in a town twei ty-five miles away. The case was r hurry-up one. The actor had to reach the distant town that night. If he failed to arrive, then his part would be assigned to some one else "Well, the man patched his worn boots, put his few belongings in a par cel, and set out in the early morning on foot along the tow-path. He had only a few coppers, hence the train was an impossibility. But after the poor fellow had covered some six or seven miles, his boots gave out, blis ters rose on his feet, fatigue over came him, and in despair he threw himself on the grass beneath a tree. "As he lay there in a bitter m...

Rochester Races. A SUCCESSFUL MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 15 May 1914
Rochester Races. A SUCCESSFUL MEETING. Although the rainfall of Tuesday night was most beneficial and wel come, it militated to an extent against- the 'success of the autumn meetiug of the Rochester Jockey Club on Wednesday, for the weather was cold and more rain threatened, which had the result of deterring, a number of persons, ladies especially from being in attendance. That the gathering was satisfactory, not withstanding the drawbacks, is proved by the gate receipts, which totalled L'il 16s. This was in ex cess of the receipts iu last autumn. The state of the roads prevented many making a motor journey to the course, as has of late been much the^practice, but strong reinforce ments arrived by the special trains from Beudigo and Echuca. Amongst the officers of other racing clnbs present we noticed Mr Wilmot, of Echuca; Mr Cotton, " of Elmore; and Mr Mulcair, of Goornong, The Rochester Brass Baud, con ducted by Mr W, Hawley, played on the ground during the afternoon with exhilara...

There was rather an acute quest for supplies of feed oats locally just before the rain this week. A large order could have been placed from N.S.W., while baled lucerne was in demand without response.

QUEER. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 15 May 1914
QUEER. The origin of tlio word "queer" is due to Quin. He bet one hundred poun?.s with a nobleman one evening that by the next morning at break fast time there would be a word in most people's mouths that was never heard before. That night, when the theatre closed, he got all the "supers" and others whom k» had hired, furnished each with a large lump of chalk, and in structed one and all to go through the principal streets of London and chalk on the pavement the word "Queer." The next morning people were con founded by the writing on the flags. Some believed it was significant of danger—that a secret enemy was near, and this was his watchword; so the word went around in a most ama ziB£ way. It might be said to be not "in most people's mouths," but in "everybody's mouth." Quin, of course, won the wager.
Our Politeness. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 15 May 1914
Our Politeness. An English gentleman at a dinner party sat next to a Frenchwoman. This lady praised her own country very highly. Particularly she prated French politeness. "The French," she said, "are the politest people in the world." The gentleman smiled. The other, a little piqued at his smile, said: "You English all admit, don't you, the superiority of French politeness?" The Englishman smiled as "he an swered: "We do, madam. That is our po liteness.''
Neck or Nothing! [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 15 May 1914
Neck or Nothing! It was evening. Mrs. Brave was alone in the house. Enter Burglar Steel. "Tell me," he hissed, "where the money is hid, or I fire" "Never!" she snapped. "Villain do your worst." "I will," snarled the baffled hut hot beaten burglar. 'Tell me where your husband's gold is hid or I'll drop this ten-inch worm down your neck!" And Steel won easily. Impudence is almost as good as brains, and a great deal more appre ' ciated.
SMALLPOX IMPROVES THE MEMORY. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 15 May 1914
SMALLPOX IMPROVES THE MEMORY. One of the most recent scientific discoveries is that memory is largely a matter of the state of the blood. A Paris specialist has published some results based on several years' study of his patients, his conclusion being tiiat those with the worst memories are people who suffer from anaemia or chronic dyspepsia. Most people suffer to some extent from one or other of these complaints, and it is declared that the people who can never remember what they were doing last Tuesday evening always im prove under a course of iron or pep sin. One disease has in some cases an amazing effect in strengthening the memory, though no doctor is likely to prescribe it. At least one in six of cured smallpox patients recover with memories greatly improved. Drugs, too, -were found to ha've dis tinct effects on the memory. Doctors have known for some years that bro mide, which is often prescribed for nervous restlessness and insomnia, is apt to enfeeble the memory if kept on...
PENNY "TIMES" SUCCESS Concept of Modern Journalism. Fighting for Circulation [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 15 May 1914
PENNY "TIMES" SUCCESS Concept of Modern Journalism. Fighting for Circulation AH England wanted to buy the penny "Times" on Monday, March 16. The greater part of England had to go without. The "Times" printing press es could not possibly turn out a suffi cient number of copies to supply the demand. They ran for 12 hours con tinuously, and stil! the newsagents were a-hungering. There is a world of difference between printing a 12 page "Daily Mail" and a 24-page "Times." It is part of the inherit ance of the "Times" that it should be the best-printed paper in the world. It would have to sacrifice this tradi tion if it let its giant presses run at the furious pace of the half-penny pa pers. In the "Mail" office the ma chines throw out the papers so fast that in a quarter of an hour you flee from them, fearing that you will be snowed under. The decision to reduce the price of the "Times" was made many months ago, and a date was fixed upon which the change was • to be made. That date was ...

TO MAKE COAL LAST LONGER. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 15 May 1914
TO MAKE COAL LAST LONGER. Coal is not used as carefully as it might be. When breaking up a larsse lump of coal it is generally done by striking it vigorously in a haphazard fashion with the back of the axe. which wastes the coal by pounding it to a dust. Now a coal chisel costs but a few &lt;f>ence and this applied to the lump of coal along the grain or seam av c nce splits it cleanly and without any waste of dust. Actor: What, back so soon? Didn't the play take? Actress: Yes, the play took; the manager took the receipts, the bai liffs the scenery, the landlords the trunks, and the author took to drink!
AN ARTFUL MAID. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 15 May 1914
AN ARTFUL MAID. "If you fondly loved me, darling," In her ear he whispered low; "Why :unto my first proposal, Did you sadden me with 'No?'" "Well," replied the happy maiden, In between a bill and coo, "I'm afraid i did it merely, Just to see what you would do." "But," her lover fond protested, In a tone approaching pain, "What if I had rushed off wildly, Never coming back again?" "That," she cried, "could not have happened, , Well I knew what was in store, As I took a wee precaution— Darling, I—I locked the door!" The thing that doesn't cost any thing has a cute way of figuring in the expenses account. A woman is so used to pinning things that she can't understand why a man should make so much fuss a'hout a missing button.
BILL BONG'S BENEFIT. AN AMUSING STORY OF A STRANGE DISAPPEARANCE [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 15 May 1914
BILL BONG'S BENEFIT. AN AMUSING STORY OF A STRANGE DISAPPEARANCE By Scudamore Jarvis. It seems quite the fashion nowa days—said Private Coles as he look ed up from the newspaper he was using as a table-cloth, for blokes to suddenly disappear and leave no traces behind 'em. Traces are about the only things (hey don't leave behind though—he went on —for if you read between the lines in these disappearance cases you'll find that when the feller did the silent get-away act he left at home a wife and six kids chargeable to the parish, a large crop of tailors' bills, or 'arf a dozen young ladies, all of whom he'd promised to marry. When you think over these things you come to the conclusion as a rule that the disappearance ain't so marvellous as you fancied and you can understand why the feller takes such a lot o' find ing. Talking o' disappearances reminds me o' Bill Bong what enlisted in '01, and did three hectic years in the regi ment afore what I'm going to tell you about happened. By...

EPIDEMIC DISEASE. "NIP IT IN THE BUD." [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 15 May 1914
EPIDEMIC DISEASE. "NIP IT IN THE BUD." "It's catching"—this is what people say when , a malady spreads among them as fire spreads [ in dry grass ; the phrase states a fact without explanation, which is a pity, because if once you understand why " it's catching," you can prevent it catching instead of having to cure it—cure is often impossible, and is expensive. Now you can understand the flame running through grass, but you can only see the spread of disease by its results, because disease is spread by living germs or seeds, too small to see, and so light that air can carry and distribute' them; the only way to prevent Disease Germs "catching" is to kill them. To kill an invisible foe may seem difficult; but in this case it is easy and cheap, for you can kill Disease Germs by meeting them at every point with something in hourly use and immediately fatal to them. Science has given us this in Lifebuoy Royal Disinfectant Soap, and its germ-killing power in hospitals and sanitation has ...
KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 15 May 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. When boiling potatoes, add just a little sugar, as well as salt. They are far more floury than if only salt is added. The white of a raw egg applied to a burn or scald will prevent inflam mation, be soothing and cooling, and relieve the stinging pain. When a fish-kettle is not available for boiling the fish, place an old plate at the bottom of the saucepan and tie the fish in a piece of muslin. To test mussels, add an onion when cooking them. Should the onion turn black, the mussels should not be eat en, as it is a sign that they are not good. If your oven will not brown your pastry as well as you would like, put the cakes or tarts on the upper tray, and throw a little sugar on the floor of the oven. When you suspect worms at the roots of your plants, place a few un used matches, heads downwards, in the pots. The sulphur will kill the worms and the plants will be quite healthy again. To prevent the juice of pies from running over spread a thin rim of but ter around...
