PffflS^ C@lMp(gltnttI(D)lRi@ FOR BOYS AND GIRLS. NEW PRIZE COMPETITIONS. Phylllda Is just beginning to be con scious ot that 'Christmas feeling' In tho atmosphere. OC course, you understand, and probably you — everyone of you — Bluiro it. A bookseller was responsible for it in rhylllda's case. She was looking tor something Interesting — a nice little volume on trigonometry, or mensuration, or ancient history, when sho found her self wandering among stacks nnd stacks of such literature as Christmas Annuals, Girls' Own and Hoys' Own Llooks galore, nnd Instantly the 'feeling' referred to ' above overcame her, and she fell to think ing, of boys and girls, and ChriBtmas, and prizes, and so forth.

AN ESSAY THAT WON A PRIZE. MY FAVORITE HOBBY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror of Australia — 30 October 1915
AN ESSAY THAT WON A PRIZE. MY FAVORITE HOBBY. I really think the hobby that gives me the greatest pleasure is collecting flowers and pressing them. In the spring it re quires quite a lot of work to collect all the various sorts of flowers and try and miss none. There are so many, that when you thmk you have all there are to be found In this district, new ones keep ap pearing, until you begin to wonder if you will ever have all. A walk In the bush has an added interest, because you never know what new varieties may bo found during tho ramble. Again, so many are alike and yet different in somp slight way, that it takes careful study to tell the difference. Perhaps one has five petals, and another six,, or one's leaves are I broader than the other's, and so on. Bls I muth Is a splendid place in which to ! start a collection, as thore are dozens of flowers here In all seasons. Altogether, there are 13 different kinds of wattle, ant. heaps of other flowers such as boronia, white star, wi...

WOMAN AND THE HOME. THE ART OF GOOD HOUSEKEEPING. Bv 'THALIA.' SOME FACTS ABOUT COOKERY, Mistakes so often occur, even in the bcBt regulated families, and the youthful house koeper Is frequently puzzled to know why such a particular dish has turned out a failure, although tho recipe. was reliable, and. the Ingredients of the best. I am Inclined always to think that we learn more by our failures than by our successes. Be this at it may, some of my early cul inary efforts are even still stock Jokes in my family. Shall I ever forget the ducks which I was supposed to have boiled in stead of roasted, or that cornflower mould which was ordered to be so overdosed with red coloring by way of decoration that when it arrived at the table no one even ventured to try its overblushlng delights! It is in the hope of helping others to avoid these 'early mistakes' that I have collected the following hints, which I havo certainly found helpful in train Ing my cooks, when they, as a rule, started in ...

THE CASE STATED AND OBJECTIONS PFUTED. By JOHN D. FITZGERALD, President PJLJU, N.S.W. A Favorable Moment. Notwithstanding the war, there is pro bably no moment so favorable for the success of the Referendum proposals as tha present The Interstate Labor Con ference, held In Adelaide in June last, composed tho last remaining differences between the leaders of the States and the Commonwealth: These differences caused vacillation In the Labor ranks in previous referenda, and gave courage and vocal strength to the opponents of the fulfil ment of Commonwealth powers. It is well known that,' in spite of their attitude of opposition, many of tho lenders of the Lberal Party admit that certain of the Referendum proposals must in tho end be passed. Especially was the' opinion of Sir' 'William Irvine decisive upon - the point that the full, scope of Federal Government could never be realised until higher 'pdwers were conferred upon the Commonwealth Parliament. State and Federal Functions. It is...

At the, Movies Motor Smash at Keystone Studios. The first experience ot Weber and Fields in film work was nearly fatal. They were doing a scone for their first Bennett-Keystone feature, in the course of which they had to be mixed up in a motor collision. Mack Bennett's 120 h.p. racing car was to be the destructlvo mo dlum, and that car certainly was a thor ough actor. It got away and the col lision with Weber and Fields took place when the speedometer was registering 58 miles per hour. Weber, and Fields were carried in an unconscious condition to the studio hospital, together with the chauf feur and the camera man, and some days elapsed before another scene could be taken. ? ? ? Foy Not Killed Yet. Joe Jackson and Bert Clarke, two new comedians fresh from vaudeville, arrived at the studio that day under engagement, but when they inspected the casualty Use they started to yearn again for the foot lights where matters are not so strenuous. Eddie Foy, however, cheered them up. 'It's al...
