Wages Boards Bn Law yers' Pockets. Mr H. C. Hoyle writes:—Re cent developments with regard to Wages Boards show how com pletely the legal profession has succeeded in turning the workers' needs to its own aggrandisement. The. Lawyers have the Wages Boards in their pockets. A striking indictment of the system was made by a member of the Australian Soriety oi Engi neers the other da^—" The idea oi Wages Boards is" he said, ex cellent, but the trouble is that the legal element has been introduced, and the workers are victimised and bled in a scandalous manner. Once the lawyers get a start they are never finished. -They wrangle over technicalities and over trifles which do not concern the main issues at all. They purposely cause delays which an ordinary man could settle in a few minutes as a matter, of equity. In one case in which some members of the engineers were concerned, the men lost £8000 in wages owing to the great and unnecessary delays in the .working of the Board. Many similar ...

Not Forgotten. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 17 October 1913
Not Forgotten. Some time since, in a scattered, re Inote country parish in Scotland, the minister of the kirk, accompanied by the ruling elder, went a rather long distance to viBit an old parishioner for the purpose of a "catechising." The walk was not only long but some what arduous, and their appetites were very keen when the destination was reached. Before the serious busi ness connected .with the visit was mooted, the • two kirk officials hinted in unmistakable terms that their bodily needs required immediate at tention. The old parishioner was not reluct ant to take the hint, and at once placed on the table sundry country refreshments, such as bread, milk and the like. Then, seating hereBlf at a little distance, slie requested her visi tors to satisfy their appetites. No second invitation was wanted, and very soon the hoard was. entirely cleared. "Now, Janet," said the' minister, when he and his companion had fin ished eating, "we will begin the ser ious business. Do you rememb...
COOL CLOTHES. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 17 October 1913
COOL CLOTHES. Cool clothes are those which, favor the dissipation of the heat of the body, for the warmth felt by the wearer of the garment proceeds not so much from the garment itself as from the wearer. Wool is warm, because it is a worse conductor of heat from the body than other materials, whilst' fur is the worst conductor of all. Silk is cooler than either cotton or linen, for it favor's conduction of heat from the body better than any other material. Bleached fabrics are cooler than unbleached ones. In summer and winter all clothes should fit SUfflcib'ul'i'j" loose to give the limbs and respira tory organs their full freedom. Color should also play an important part in the choice of our clothing for the seasons. White is the ideal color for summer, because it is one that ab sorbs the least heat, whilst, on the other hafi.cl, black or dark-colored gar ments attract the sun and absorb a large amount of heat—hence their usefulness for winter wear.

A SECRET OF THE PEERAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 17 October 1913
A SECRET OF THE PEERAGE. Glamis Castle,' the seat of the Earl of Strathmorc, has a secret cham ber, a chamber which members of the family like to believe none but three men can find. That chamber holds the family secret, at which antiquaries, genealogists, historians, and amateur detectives have been vainly guessing for a century. The secret and the family fortunes hang together. It can, as stated, never be known to more than three men at a time. Those men are the earl, his heir upon at taining the age of twenty-one, and the factor or steward of the estate. That secret is the best-kept in history. Whatever the weird meaning, the bur den of knowing it is never sought by the head of the family. When the present earl was nearing manhood he begged his father to spare nim know ledge of the secret, and Lord Glamis, the heir of to-day, when he came of age eight years ago, was most reluct ant to share the hated story.
FOOD FOR SEVENTY-FIVE YEARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 17 October 1913
FOOD FOR SEVENTY-FIVE YEARS. If you should live to be seventy-five, have you any idea how much food you would have- consumed in the course of the years, taking it for granted that you are a person of average height, weight and appetite? Ill both solids and liquids you will have consumed something like 1300 times your weight in both solids and liquids, or fifty-four tons of solid food and fifty-three tons of liquid. Probably if your desires were nor mal you would have eaten some sev enty-six tons of bread, which, if they were all piled together, would equal in size a small family hotel. On that bread you would have spread about a ton and a quarter of butter. If yo> had been fond of bacon and were to stretch it out in a long single slice it would stretch about four miles. You would have managed to eat about five tons of fish and some 12,000 eggs, while if you were at all a lover of cheese you could easily get outside 4001b. of it. It is interesting to imagine how, if you were to se...
