Visitors from all over Italy, including many tourists, crowded every "tlay to see the bosses of the giant beast. The mastodon has. two tusks nearly eight feet long, one of which is per- fectly preserved, though the other is broken, probably'owing to the work of the excavators.

The skeleton iles at a depth of sbme twenty six feet below the-ground, and is so far only partly excavated, the work having been temporarily suspended, in order to allow experts to decide on the best method of raising it."

FLOWERS IN THE HOME [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 28 October 1926
FLOWERS IN THE HOME The following hints will be found use fu!:- > ' . . After long, experience the conclusion is that it is'best to-actually boil the ends of the stems of most flowers for one minute. Hold them in bogling water while you count sixty. A little aspirin added to a vase of water greatly helps; about one aspirin LO a pint of water. Violets keep better if their stems are tied together with cotton, and the ends of the stems cut off. A little salt ih the water helps carnations to last.

FRIENDSHIP [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 28 October 1926
FRIENDSHIP How seldom can a person nearing the end of life look back through the vista of years and faithfully acknow- ledge that she's had at least one friend who, through joys and soriows, adver- sity and prosperity, has always stuck to her. Even though, she's made no great name, performed no laudable deed, to have the love and respect of a lifelong friend in some achievement worthy of gratification. Just to know that among all your acquaintances there Is one to whom you can go for comfort and sympathy. No need to explain minute details or to work up a case for your own de- fence; no need to say anything but just the facts-and you know she (or he) will understand. What could be sweeter or more desiring than just that-the love of one real friend? Real friends need finding, and, when found, keeping. "Fair weather" friends generally find you! There is nothing of which to be envious in seeing a per- son' surrounded by all sorts and con- ditions of people, whose name is on evryone's Up...
