CHEAP WATCH, Wo have tho best of reasons for as serting that tho "JJ. and W. Guinea Special" Watch, advertised on this page, by Messrs. Bruce and Walsh, is not only a «henp watch, but a rare good one. It is 10 ruby-jewelled; has a substantial sterling silver case, is handsomely chased on its cover; has an opal face; koyloss; stands rough usage, and, in addition to being a capital time keeper, the firm's great faith in it is evidenced by their readiness to guaran tee it for 20 yonrs. Messrs. Bruce and Walsh aro a highly respectable firm, who not only import but manufacture jewellery. Thu "]J. and W. Guinea Special" is the sort of present that would delight tho average lady, and our readers may take it that there is not a particlo of misrepresentation re garding the quality of this very mod erately-priced watch.
THE GLORIOUS SCARLET AMARYLLIS. A MOST MAJESTIC FLOWER. COMING INTO VOGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 30 March 1912
THE QL0R10US .SCARLET AMARYLLIS. MOST MAJESTIC FLOWER. COMWG INTO VOGUE. The gloving Scarlet Lily—loveliest ol' all the many lovely flowers produced by Africa—has at last been accorded appropriate official recognition in Syd ney. That is all the more remarkable seeing that in some other parts of Aus tralasia—notably in Tasmania—its in comparable charms have been recog nised for many years. Sydney is one of tlic rare exceptions where but few of the private gardens possess any specimens of the plant. But now that Air. Maiden has lifted tho "lily" from its obscurity so far as Sydney is con cerned. the owners of private gardens most zeal _ in proving in a practical way that they, too, can appreciate the surpassing qualities of this truly regal flower. Trumpet-like in shape and of a delicate waxy substance, and rare colouring that gradually burns its way into the senses, it is inevitable that the flower should soon establish itself as the feature of every garden.- In Hobart its splendid ...

FROM BURNED CITY TO DREADNOUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 30 March 1912
FROM BURNED CITY TO DREAD NOUGHT. Physicists say there is tho same weight of '.natter in tho world now that thcro was at tho Creation, and nothing is lost. After tho rebuilding of San Francisco, following tho great carthquako anil firo, tho iron girders, bent, into fantastic shapes by tho heat, had to bo disposed of. There has been a great demand' for it. Some of this -scrap found its way to Genoa, and tho engineers at the Italian arsenal dis covered that when rosmelted it pos sessed remarkablo powers of resistance. The cphsoqucnce is that the Italian navali authorities nro purchasing as much of San Francisco old iron as they can lay hands on. This iron is mixed with stool for tho plates of tho now Dreadnought under construction.
PADLOCKED PICTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 30 March 1912
PADLOCKED PICTURES. . 1'iio Loiivro authorities are experi menting with a now mechanism for pro venting iho theft of pictures. The c.ssonco of tlio sehomo is tbaf an iron bar shall bo firmly riveted to tlio wall, that every picturo shall bo locked to it, and that u. single lock .shall suffice to fasten or un fasten all the .springs simultaneously. The secret of tlio lock, of courso, will bo jealously guarded, and only trusted officials will be allowed to handle tlio key. By this means it will be a simplo matter to release iho pictures for re moval in tlio event of fire: whereas, to take a picture from its place before it is released will entail a good quarter of an hour'e uoisy work.
FRENCH HOUSES. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 30 March 1912
FRENCH HOUSES. French housos, Mr.' Edison declares, arc abominable. They uvo built in a stylo which might have been good enough centuries ago. Not any con sideration is .shown to comfort. Ameri cans; ho added, would iiovor bo ablo to live within them. A I'aris news paper admits that Mr. Edison is not far wroii^. Windows and doors aro badly constructed, and the same may ho said as to the planning of tho apart ments, for. almost overy ro?im is dark and ill-ro'itilated. Jiut then tho French paper points out Frenchman do not live much in these houses. Their occupations take them out in tho day timo, and at night tho Parisian is found at tlx; eal'ti or theatre, ati&lt;l only usus his house for sleeping purposes,.
A CURE FOR WRITER'S CRAMP. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 30 March 1912
CURE FOR WRITER'S KRAMP. The Now York "Medical Record" lolls about a paymaster who, after recovery from an operation, found that his signa ture was no longer uniform, was ex ceedingly shaky, and was made with increasing difficulty as the day pro gressed. .Any attempt to resumo work necessitated long-continued writing he fore lie. was in a proper stato to do so, and led to a tremulousness of tho hand and arm similar to tliat which ensues upon excessivo consumption of colfeo or tobacco, or is caused by tlio toxin of some infectious or fatigue condition. The treatment consisted in explaining to the patient that the fear of making an improper stroke caused lack of free dom and clamping of the muscles. He was directed to mako free arm move ments with chalk on a blackboard, pay ing no attention t° the forms ho drow, then to pass to a slate, and later to pencil and paper, and then to gradually reduce the size of tho writing. After performing these exorcises for ono month, the paymaster rec...
BUTTER CHURNED WHILE YOU WAIT. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 30 March 1912
BUTTER CHURNED WHILE YOU WAIT. A Now York grocer lias combined an advertising novelty and a source of pro fit in a butter churn, which is in almost constant operation in his store. Tho drum is driven by a small electric .motor, and the schema is to sell a pat ton a quantity of cream, and then, f'oi a smalt charge, churn it into butter. Tho operation takes but a few minutes, and in tho meantime the pa'tron is movi ig around the store, and, in all probability, making more purchases.
A NEW IDEA. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 30 March 1912
A NEW ID JO A. Tlio Minister for ISducation, Mr. Cariiiieluicl, states that many par cms liave ignored tho school med ical reports concerning thoir chil dren's health. In view of this he now proposes to appoint nurses to follow up the work of the medical officers by calling upon tho parents and pointing out physical defects in cases where they exist. Tho plan heretofore adopted has been for tho visiting specialist to examine tho child and for an official notiX cation to be sent to tho parent. This notification when presented at a hospital guarantees freo treat ment of tho child. If the jiroposal now made should provo successful when put into practice in the city it is intended to extend it through out ilie country by the employment of Government medical officers, or some other medical practitioner in tho neighbourhood, with tho same arrangement in regard to the sub sidised hospitals as in tho city. Thus tho "free medical treatment of all State school children appears to be in sight....
BRAVERY. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 30 March 1912
BRAVERY. Ho was a bravo man who first ate • an oyster. Ever since tlie- perfor mance of that ancient and memor able feat the succulent bivalve has been associated with acts of daring. Some time ago a commission—how devoutly N.S.W. does love a coin mission—was sent out to discover an oyster combinc, and, for the re lief of an offended people, report upon the manner and method of its courage in keeping tho prices up. Tlio result of the commission's in quiry was nothing in particular, and tho oyster business still remained within the control of that industri ous and frugal race of men, frivol ously called Dagoes, who work 18 hours a day and keep in fluo con dition on the smell of olive oil. Now a proposal has gono abroad to the effect that Sydney should arise and in its power and mgilit boycott tho oyster as a protest against tho rise in price of from Is to Is Cd a plate. It is statod, 011 what ap pears to bo moderately reliable au thority, that the proposal does not meet, with resentm...

Ilia mission seems to be to adver tise something, probably in connect ion with the simple lifo.

Bare head, baro arms, shoulders, and neck, baro legs and foet. A stunted petticoat round his loins, and nothing but a singlet abovo it, his laundry account should bo a, thing of much beauty and satisfac tion, notwithstanding that a city laundry bill is rareiy artistic ami seldom consoling, in tho loftinese of alleged civilisation a sinister smile escapes among onlookers as this back-to-naturo advocate pas.seB by and perhaps there will also en cape a rudo remark, "rats"; yot his apparel is inoro rational tliis weather than the heavy tailor-made suits worn by tho men who amilo and pass tho aforesaid r...
