THE SLEEP OF CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 19 September 1914
1 THE SLEEP OF CHILDREN. I A healthy infant will sleep nearly twenty hours out of the twenty-four during its first month. ThiB it will do without rocking, and it is a pity I to teach a child to expect you to rock it to sleep; it occupies time and does the child no good. The other habit of walking »ith it until it chooses to fall asleep is even worse. Begin as you mean to go on; lay it down awake, and, if Nature re quires it, sleep will come; .t not, no rocking can force it. Bui this should he taught from the beginning, and bad habits of this kind, as a rule, begin with the nurse, and are in full force before the mother has a chance to exercise her authority. The baby should not be rocked, nor should it be placed in a swinging cradle. Train him from the first 10 sleep in a stationary bed, and put a tiny hair pillow under his head. He should always be placed on his right side, and care should be taken that the face is never covered. Sound development is next to im possible unless the ...
Scarsdale and Smythesdale Boroughs. PROPOSED AMALGAMATION. CONFERENCE TO BE HELD. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 19 September 1914
Scarsdaie ant SqgtEiBsoaie BoioogDs. PROPOSED AMALGAMATION. CONFERENCE 1'0 BE HELD. Abortive conferences have been held between the SjarsJale and Smythesdale boroagh eoaacils on the qaeation of amalgamation of the two boroughs, and it has now been decided to hold ancthpr conference to again disenss the vexed question. Indications point to the fact that unless some determined and definitp action is taken both boroughs will merge into Gtrenvilld shire. But amalgamation itself of the boroughs w>ll not solve the problem. They are faced with the qnestion of fin ance, and the question of paramount importanceTto be dealt with is—Can both boroughs by amalgamation and under existing conditions, raise the necessary amount ? One way to overcome the difficulty is to raise the shilling rate to reach the re quired sum. If the two boroughs merge into Grenville shire an in creased rate will have to be paid, and it ia considered in many quar ters that the best coarse to pursue would be for the ra...

THE "Berring'a Herald" fOIILISHED EVEKY SATURDAY MORNING [Registered at the General PoBt Office Melbourne, for transmission by post as a Newspaper.] Saturday, September 19, 1914 " What preparation can be usefully given in the elementary school for those who are destined to occupy themselves in the detailed work of commercial life ?" The topic is one on which clear thinking is needed. It is not to be disposed of by the enunciation of this, or that dogma as to the functions. ot an elementary school. The elementary school may be UBed for whatever purposes the community thinks lit. Its curricu lum may be as limited or as exten sive as the community may deter mine. Specialists will always be heard clamouring for the inclusion of their favourite speciality. There is no snbject which could not be taught in an elementary way in an elementary school; and no long as we consider each subject by itself a plausible cpse can be made out for moBt of them. But the real question is "What can be done...

INVENTORS' FORTUNES. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 19 September 1914
INVENTORS' FORTUNES. The greatest inventions do not al ways bring the larger financial re wards. Roller skates are said to have brought their inventor six hundred thousand pounds, while nearly half a million was realised by the man who first devised bootlaces. The inventor of the safety-pin, who took the idea from a reproduction of a Pompeian fresco, made two million pounds. On the other hand, Charles Bourseul, who discovered and described the principle of the telephone in 1855, died poor. Michaux, the inventor of the bicycle, ended his days in the utmost penury, and Frederic Sauvage, who is credited with the invention of the screw-pro pellor, was imprisoned and died bank rupt and insane.
HOW WOMEN WERE MADE. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 19 September 1914
HOW WOMEN WERE MADE. According to a Hindu legend, tliis is the proper origin of woman: — Twashtri, the god Vulcan of Hie Hindu mythology, created the world. But on his commencing to create wo man lie discovered that with man he had exhausted all his creative mater ials, and that not one solid element had been left. This, of course, great ly perplexed Twaslitri, and caused him to fall into a profound medita tion. When he arose from it he pro ceeded as follows: 1-Ie took the round ness of the moon, the undulating curves of the serpent, the graceful twist of the creeping plant, the light shivering of the grass blade and the slenderness of the willow, the velvety softness of the flowers, the lightness of the feather, the gentle gaze of the doe, the frolicsomeness of the dancing sunbeam, the tears the cloud, the inconstancy of the wind, the timid ness of the hare, the vanity of the peacock, the hardness of the diamond, the sweetness of honey, the cruelty of the tiger, the heat of the fir...
THE SCOTSMAN'S ADDRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 19 September 1914
THE SCOTSMAN'S ADDRESS. | Sir Joseph Lyons told a good story at the banquet of the Wine and Spir it Trades' Benevolent Society at the Connaught rooms. A card was given to each guest, on which he was to state the amount he was prepared to give to the fund, and in relation to this Sir Joseph told of an Englishman, a Scotsman, and a Jew who met acci dentally and became travelling com panions. They were in India, and one day saw a native of high caste pur sued by a savage elephant. All three raised their guns simultaneously and killed the animal. The native, who proved to be a high priest of Buddha, showed his gratitude by asking them to visit his temple, when any wish they might desire would be granted. The Englishman asked for glory, and his wish was freely complied with. The Scotsman said he would like to be a multi-millionaire, and was told that he would be made rich beyond the dreams of avarice. On the Jew being asked what he would like he replied, "I don't want much; you give me t...
The Bereaved Widower. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 19 September 1914
The Bereaved Widower. Two weavers were heard conver sing. The older of the two remarked that he had never lost a day's work for twenty years except once, and that was when his wife died. "You don't say sol" exclaimed the other, in a tone of surprise. "Yes," replied the old minder; "I was just getting ready to go to th' factory when th' wife said to me, 'Jack, I do feel bed.' Of course, I ran for th' doctor, but when he came, bless me if she weren't dead." "You'd be much upset then," broke in the younger minder. "I—I were that;' 1. were no joke, I can tell thee, losin' a day's wage." If it happens to be a dull day, don't be dull, too. If the day is inclined that way, there is all the more reason why you should be cheerful.
SIMPLE TESTS FOR MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 19 September 1914
SIMPLE TESTS FOR MILK. The commonest way of adultering milk Is with water, yet It 1b the easi est to discover without elaborate chemical tests. Good milk - should look white', with a yellowish tinge. It should have a pleasant odor, and taste sweet. Bluish milk is poor in fatty matter. Good milk is a little sticky when stirred, and lathers. If water has been put into it it does not lather. If, when brought almost to the boil ing point, clots appear or adhere to the bottom , of the pot, it is about to cnange or sour, and is not fit to drink. If it curdles it certainly is' not fresh, as every housewife ought to know. If you wish to be sure that the milk is of the proper richness, take a long needle, see that it is clean and dry, and dip it into the milk, an inch or so below the surface. "Withdraw it, and if the milk "be pure a large drop will adhere to the needle and hang there for some time. But if the milk drops from the needle quickly in several small drops it has certainly been adu...
II. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 19 September 1914
I wonder wliat his name is?" specula ted Roger, thoughtfully, a week or two later, by which time he had consider ably improved his acquaintance with his neighbor in the third floor back— to which remark his wife replied, with a halt laugh: "Curiosity, thy name is man! We women are grossly libelled in that par ticular; for, really, I haven't felt even a passing desire to lift the mantle of obscurity which he has drawn over his past life." "I, too, am innocent of curiosity in the ordinary sense of the word," ex plained Roger; "it is only that, al though I cannot give chapter and verse Tor it, I'm sure I've met our neighbor before. His face is perfectly familiar o me, and I seem to recognise certain tones and inflexions of his voice. Yet lor my life 1 can't identify him. I :;eem very, very near doing it some times, just as one feels in a dream, and then I lose the clue, and all is blank again. It's beginning to haunt :ne." "Perhaps he was one of the clients of Messrs. Frobiahers," sugg...
PETROL DANGERS. Risks That Are incurred by Unwary Owners of Motor Cars. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 19 September 1914
PETROL DANGERS. Risks That Are Incurred by Unwary Owners of Motor Cars. The experienced motorist has prob ably learnt that petrol has many po tential dangers, and he therefore handles it with a considerable amount, of respect. The many newcomers in the field of motoring, however, may not be aware (or they pay insuia cient heed to the fact) that petrol makes an extremely explosive mix ture with air. It should be fully understood that petrol can be ignited in a number o£ ways. For instance, the lighted end of a cigarette, when it reaches a su;Ti ciently high temperature, will firo a mixture of petrol and air; a lighted cr a glowing match, or even an oj dinary motor oil-lamp, is a source of danger. A strict rule should be made never to handle petrol, particularly in an enclosed space, where there is any chance of accidental ignition taking place. Dangers are run also in using petrol for car-cleaning purposes. Such a a terial as waste saturated with petrol is often used quite carelessly...
A TALE OF THE BORDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 19 September 1914
A TALE OF THE BORDERS. In "Highways and By-ways in the Border," by the late Andrew Lang and hi8 brother John, the honored name of Percy is linked with a story of defeat. In 1372 the Lord Percy of that day, the English Warden of the Marches, at the head of seven thou sand men, lay encamped not far from the River Tweed. "To scare away from their poor lit tle crops tl a deer and wild cattle that were wont, when night fell, to ravage them, the Scottish country folk of that district used to sound at frequent intervals a primitive kind of drum. To the ends of long poles they fixed what may best be termed huge rat ties, made of dried skins tightly stretched over semi-circular ribs of wood. Inside each skin they put a few round pebbles. When shaken vigorously these rattles would give out a noise quite terrifying to any four-footed animal, especially when heard in the stillness of £he night." The clever Scotsmen planned a stampede, and in the pitchy black ness of mHnlght sent a number of pic...

ENCOURAGE HOSPITALITY. Encourage your children to be hos pitable from early childhood as far as you can. Let them have little teas and birthday parties and invite their playfellows.

Childhood is the best time to acquire the spirit of hospitality, for the chicks are na turally generous-hearted and unself conscious.
A Hard Time Of It. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 19 September 1914
A Hard Time Of. It. A lesson in elementary anatomy had been in progress. But the teacher did not flatter himself that he had made any lasting contribution to the knowledge of his pupils. "Now, can anybody tell me," said he at last, "what part of the body is the most hardly treated?" . Only one youth showed any Signs of Intelligence, but be was most en thusiastic. "Well, Sammy, you seem to be the only boy who has learnt' anything. Tell the class what yon know." "The part of the body what has the' rottenest time Is the eye." "How is that, Sammy?" "Because all day it is under the j lash, and every night it gets a good hiding." ____________

THE THIRD FLOOR BACK. At the sound of the opening of the front dooi- Mary Beauregard put down her sewing and rose hurriedly to her feet, hope in her eyes, which died only too quickly as she sank down again into her chair, picked up her work, and resumed her stitch, stitch, stitch ing with the swift, regular movement1 of one well skilled in 'handling needle and thread. " "1 knew it was too early for lloger! to come home," she told herself, with | a sigh, "unless something unusual had happened.
