BARWON ELECTION. The State Election for Barwon on Thursday was, as far as Queenscliff division was concerned, the quietest 'r~iorded.. -Apart'from the booth it self, it could not be discerned that an election was being field, Why this should be so is hard to con. ceive, as there were several vital questions before the country which should have infused interest here, as they did to a great extent in other parts. Mr Farrer, the old member, was opposed by Mr A. Parker in the interest of Labor. Very few meetings were held, both candidates appearing once before the electors in this part of the con stituency. Mr Farrer addressed electors in the open-air on Saturday evening and Mr Parker in the Town Hall on Tuesday, with Setiator O'Keefe, of Tasmania, -ably' sup porting the new candidate for political honors, and the meetiing presided over by Mayor Cuzens.

THE DAIRY PROPERLY MATURING CHEESE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 28 November 1914

THE DAIRY PROPERLY MATURING CHEESE. For several weeks Cheddar cheese is practically tasteless ; at . two months it is beginning to develop its nutty flavour, and a month later this is distinct enough to meet the tastes of many consumers. The ren net, however, having had a better chance than would be possible with higher proportions of retained whey, the cheese is proportionately more digestible; and, so far as the ron sumer's advantage is concerned, he may use 'it then without either the effects of indigestibility on the one hand., or of pungency of flavour on the other. For those who desire a stronger flavour, it will have to: be kept two months more or upwards; and if made on correct lines and as perfectly as it may be from sound milk, it will be at its' best. from eighteen months to two years old. If such long keeping is sought, it. should be stored, after four months' age, in a. temperature never exceed ing 62 deg. Fahr. nor falling below 55 deg. Fahr., with the humidity of the ...

DOCTOR AND PATIENT. The late Dr. Cruveilhier, of Paris, was a man of unbounded liberality. One day he heard that a poor young woman, whose husband was a clerk in the War Office, had been taken ser iously ill. He went to see her, at tended her for a month, and finally brought her round. At the end of this period he per ceived that the husband wished to ask him for his account, and for time to pay it in. He did not like to hurt the young man's feelings, and, noticing an Algerian carpet in the room, worth about fifteen francs, he exclaimed : '"'What a lovely piece of carpet you have got there !" "Ah ! doctor," said the husband, "If you think you would like to have it-" "I should indeed, very much like to have it. Look here, we will make a bargain. You owe me two hundred francs for my visits. Your carpet is worth three hundred. Here are a hundred francs, and I'll take it with me." And he left, glad to have done the poor people a kindness without wounding their pride.

A PUGILISTIC CABBY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 5 December 1914

A PUGLLISTIC CABBYY. -------+----- Mr. Grant Allen used to tell of an amusing experience with` a London cab-driver. " After leaving his puLlisher's, he hired a cab to drive to a brother novelist. On arriving at his destination he tendered the cabby four shillings, which was a little over the proper fare. .The driver, however, was not satisfied, and wanted six shillings. Grant Al lea refused to pay more, whereupon the driver offered to fight him for it. Allen, who knew as much about the art of self-defence as the man in the moon, was rather taken back at the man's request; however, he agreed, saying, "The very thing, my friend will hold the money and act as refe ree, so come along." Cabby got down and followed him into the gar den. Allen then placed the six shil lings into his friend's hand, took off his coat, rolled up his shirt-sleeves all with an air of cheerful alacrity, and bade the man come on. His anxiety was intense, but it relaxed as he watched the cabman's face, showing dou...

Returning on board after dinner, he was stopped at the dock yard gates bY a sentry of the West India Regiment. "Who go dar ?" demanded the black warrior, bringing his bayonet to the charge. "A friend," came the reply out of 'the dark. "Wal, Massa Frien', what am de countersign ?" "That's all right, you know me," said the Commodore. "Me :.now nobody no got dat countersign," and he brought his bayonet perilously near the officer. "You no can pass h'yar." "But I am Commodore De Hor sey." The nigger broke into a br...

A MAN WHO WAS HANGED. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 5 December 1914

A MAN WHO WAS HANGED. It was the custom in the good old dare, especially in Ireland, to hang condemned men for half an hour, and then hand them over to their friends. A man named Mahoney was hanged in this way. At the end of half an hour his body was given to his friewds, who put him in a cofin they had broaght with them, and gsaoped off with him on a cart. But, before they were out of sight: of the gallows -authorities, the corpse in the exuberance of his joy sat up in the cofin and shouted "Hooroo !" A "pall," terrified lest .his exhibition of vitality should cause the execu tioner to come after them, hit the hanged man playfully on the head with his stick, remarking, "Kape quiet, ye divil." The sileacing was so effectual that the victim of it never woke again, but was well and truly waked that same evening. There was no doubt that the blow on the head had killed him. The facts came to the knowledge of the authorities, and a justice was ap pealed to for a warrant for the cul prit'...
