This Is how It happened. The In dian, who was on the bank some miles above the Falls, had moored his boat securely to the shore, and lay In It, fast asleep. In this condition be was found by an enemy who nursed in his heart a deadly grudge against him. Silently he loosed the little craft, and with one long, silent push sent it out Into the river, where the current be gan to carry It slowly towards the yet far-distant Falls.

Boiled or Steamed Puddings. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 7 August 1914
Boiled or Steamed Pudding*. Boiled puddings should always be put into boiling water, and as this evaporates boiling (not cold) water should, be added. Fill the basin quite full of the mix ture, or it will fill with water. For a boiled pudding, tie up in flour ed cloth; for a steamed pudding, tie a piece of greased paper over the top. Puddings are lighter if breadcrumb* are used instead of flour. Always add a little ginger; it helps to produce lightness. Steamed puddings take half as long again to cook as boiled puddings. Boiled puddings with apples or other fruit take from 1% to 2'/. hours to -.ook, according to size. Christmas [dings, six to eight hours. To re-hnat boiled or steamed pud :t.?s, add a little milk, place in a vasin, cover with greased paper, da) steam.

Different Walks. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 7 August 1914
Different Walks. Country people and the dwellers in cities have different walks accord ing to Dr. Felix Itcgnault.

Tho country mnn lakes a longer stride he leans forward keeping his knees ' bent, slides fcis foot over the ground and lonns his weight upon the whole sole at once. Each method of walking has its own merit. ? ' ? The country man's method cnnbles him to got over 'greater distances without fatigue if tho road is foirly oven. v.

An Easily-made Washstand Substitute. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 7 August 1914
An Easily-made Wash stand Substitute. Our first illustration gives tin udoquate idea of a contrivance which may take tho place of a woflhstond, when it Is not expedient for various reasons to fit a room .with this article of furniture. As the sketch Miows, it consists of a shelf with a rounded front fixed into a corner at a suitable height ' from tho floor. Two pieces of board nailed above it form a backing, partly to add . to tho ap pearance of the fitment, partly to prevent splashing of the wall. Drap ery may bo added as a frillf' The shelf may be enamelled or be covered with oilcloth or other ma terial. As tho fitment has to hold a heavy weight it must bo strong. It is, therefore, necessary that its attachment to the walls should l>e rather more secure than nails dri ven into the plaster nlono can bring about. Fortunately it is not diffi cult to gain this end. Tho supports of tho she]/ may be produced first. Two are required, one 1ft. 6in. long, 2in. wide, and .Jin. thick, and...
