HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 22 June 1917

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. Lemons and Eggs.-These precious articles will both keep' splendidly for } as long as six months in a box of or dinary sand. The lemons must be freshly picked, then packed in rows, ' allowing sufficient space so that the | fruit does not touch. Then pour in a iresh layer of sand and start in | rows again. When required, just put the hand in amongst the sand and take out as many as are needed. Any- | body with a lemon-tree will thus be able to save the lemons from season I to season. I have been doing this I for years, and never have to buy lemons. Freshly-laid eggs can be j treated in the same way, and will be as fresh and sweet six months after- ; ward-s as when packed away. How ever, they will be only suitable for 1 cooking purposes, as the yoke will ' spread when the egg is broken. Therefore, a couple of boxes of clean builders' sand are as good as the best ice-chest on the market, so far as keeping fruit and eggs is concerned. Sweet Potato Spinach.-The leaves an-...

Starch From Maize.—A Successful Australian Enterprise. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 22 June 1917

Starch From Maize.-A Successful Australian Enterprise. Three years ago on the banks of the Maribyrnong River the Maize Products Pty. Ltd., at an expense of some £ Go,000, erected a great fac tory, and, equipping it with every mo dern facility, began the work of com mercialising Australian-grown maize. To-day, goods of their manufacture are to be found at practically any grocer's store in Australasia, and the enterprise is a proved success. One or the company's most successful pro ducts is "Dandy" starch. Before its making, maize starch, strangely enough (for fine-grade maize is large ly grown in Australia), was little known to housewives of this country. It was, however, no experiment. In America, a country of laundering and laundered wear, it has for many years been in universal use. Its difference from, and superiority to, ordinary starch lie in its greater strength and purity. It goes further. It will not harm the daintiest fabrics or cause cracking and breaking of lin ens, and i...

A TREE THAT OWNS ITSELF. Extraordinary Clause in Will. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 22 June 1917

A TREE THAT. OWNS ITSELF. Extraordinary Clause in Will. At Athe-ns, Georgia, there is a giant white oak tree which no one may 'buy' or sell or cut down; nobody owns the land in which this tree stands. The tree own itself. It stands on top of one of. the hills of the city, and is said to be between 400 and 500 years old. Early-in.the nineteenth century the ' Owner of; the plantation on which the tree stood often used to sit in the 1 shade of the huge oak. Finally he ? became so attached to the tree that " he made a will which deeded the tree to itself. He wrote: "For, and in consideration of the great love I hear this- tree, and the great desire I have , for its protection for all time, I con . vey to it entire possession of itself, ' and all land on Sft. of the tree on all sides." And so the tree came to . own itself and Sft. of ground sur I rounding it.

FAMILY OF SIXTY-SIX. Small Households Considered Bad Form. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 22 June 1917

FAMILY OF SIXTY-SIX. Small Households Considered Bad .Form. The Chinese are proud of large families, and a.. large .family living together-under one roof is looked up on as proof oiS the good tem per and correct course of life of its members and as a sure path to prosperity. A -large family which is able to live together without dividing up the property always re ceives much credit and is highly re spected. It is one of the highest dis tinctions in China to have Wu Fu T'ung T'ang, or live generations, un der one roof, although such a distinc tion is attained by very few. According to a recent census, the family of Jleng Yu Shih, a widow, of the villag3 of JIantao, in the terri tory of Wei-hai-wei, has the distinc tion of being the largest in the land. .-Jer family consists of sixty-six mem bers, and, with one servant, there are sixty-seven mouths to be fed daily. Men.g Yu Shih is sixty-six years .old, and has nine sons and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchil dren, all living ...

FLIES HATE BLUE. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 22 June 1917

FLIES HATE BLUE. The only color that flies can see well is white. They see yellow fairly well, .they hate blue and green; red makes everything appear dark to (hem, and they don't see violet at all. The Eastern nations, which are far more pestered with flies than ive are, have discovered how much flies dis like blue. The Arabs treat their houses with a ltind of light blue wash and the Japanese hang curtains o! blue glass-beads and bamboo at the entrance to their baker and butcher shops. These curtains-they are often .,?.sed in Australia-let the air in and ' the flies, should there be any in the | room, pass out. between the blue I beads towards the light, but they do ; not re-enter. Blue is a good summer color. It ! keeps out the heat, and thus makes the room cool, and keeps flies away. These insects will be found to settle quite inactive, on a dark blue blind. Directly the window is opened they will rush out towards the light. I ? ?

CHAPTER XXIII. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 22 June 1917

CHAPTER XXfil. "That. is. it., my, lord. There can be no doubt it was murder! The man was stabbed to the heart by some long slender weapon like a stiletto. He must have died at once." \ "Umph!" Stephen made no further answer. His grey eyes had a shock ed look, his fingers idly toyed with his watch-chain. Jle and the village doctor wore standing in the outer room of the head gamekeeper's cot tage; the doctor had come from the Inner room where behind the shroud ed windows the dead man had been laid. The doctor had just made his first cursory examination. The body had been found by the gamekeepers in the little clearing in the heart of the wood and their thoughts had jumped at once to murder, a surmise which the . doctor's report had now unhappily confirmed. The two other men were standing near the door giving on to the little porch-Mr. Burton and Inspector Ir win, from Scotland Yard.

Undeserved Compliments. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 22 June 1917

Undeserved Compliments. Captain Jinks was giving a dinner party and had arranged a nice little toast-list, in deference to the pre sence of Major Claquor, an able after dinner speaker. The latter was accompanied by his wife, a very deaf old lady, who was much attached to him. As the gallant officer was to respond to the toast of "The Babies," his wife, knowing his fondness for children, judged that it would suit him admirably. At the last moment, however, the . major's subject, unknown to his lady, .was changed to "The Ladies." But it made no difference to the officer. His sparkling speech delighted the company. As .the ;echo of clapping hands died down, the major's wife broke forth: "You don't know how fond the major is of them. I've seen him with two of them on his lap at once. Just teasing the life.out of the poor things. Every chance he gets he's sure to have them In'his arms, or be romping with them; knowing his loving nature, they'll come to him when they won't go to anybody e...

AMBASSADORS DON'T PAY RATES i In permitting Mr. Gerard, the late | American Ambassador, to quit Ger . many without being obliged to have his luggage overhauled by the cus toms officers, the authorities there were merely following the time-hon ored precedent in such cases. j There are many similar privileges pertaining to these highly-placed per : sonages.

Acid Stomachs are Dangerous COMMON SENSE ADVICE BY A DISTINGUISHED SPECIALIST. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 22 June 1917

I Acid Stomachs are Danger ous COMMON SENSE ADVIC.E BY A DISTINGUISHED SPECIALIST. "^CID" stomachs are dangerous because acid irritates and inflames the delicate lining of the stomach, thus hindering snd preventing the proper action of the stomach, and leading to nine-tenths of the cases of stomach trouble from which people suffer. Medicines and medical treatments are useless in such cases, for they leave the source of the trouble, the acid in the stomach, as dangerous as ever. The acid must be neutralised, and its formation prevented, and the best thing for its purpose is half a teaspoonful of bisuratcd magnesia, a simple antacid, taken in a little warm or cold water after eating, which not'.only neutralises the acid, but also prevents the fermentation from which acidity is developed. Foods which ordinarily cause greatest distress can be 1 eaten with impunity if the meal is followed j with a little bisuratcd magnesia, which can be obtained of any chemist, and should always be kept ...
