Moore was born in the north of Ireland, and arrived in this State a little over thirty years ago, ?when a yourg man. Strange to say, his first and last appointments ...
A CHINESE WEDDING. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 3 July 1914
A CHINESE WEDDING. . In China children are betrothed by their parents at an early age. A child may be betrothed .as soon as It is born, but the usual age is about ten or twelve. Several years, therefore, must elapse between the .betrothal and the marriage. It sometimes hap pens that a fourteen-year-old boy Is married to a twelve-year-old girl, but this is not the rule. The average ago of Chinese brideB is sixteen, and that of the grooms seventeen years. When an engaged couple becomes old enough to be married, their par ents first decide upon the mdnth.in which the marriage ceremony shall bo held. This deponds upon the caba listic animals which governed the re spective birthdays of bride and groom.

COLOR OF MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 3 July 1914
COLOR OF MILK. . 1 Tile color of milk will vary with the breed of cow yielding the milk, and the feeding the cow receives. Some foods have the effect of giving th milk a good flavor, and other kinds of food just the reverse. The natural color of milk is due to the coloring matter, "lactochrome," pre sent in the foutterfat. Milk is paler in color during winter or when the animals are given dry feed. Rich col oring milk yields butter of a deep yellow color when it is well made? Several faults in the making of but ter cause much of the color to dis appear, and this should be guarded against.

DON'T WORRY. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 3 July 1914
DON'T WORRY. Live in the present, deal with the present, master the present, make the most and 'best of the passing hour, and don't ivaste it by distressful re grets about the past, or paralysing fears about the future. Grip the ever present now. By this thorough-going concentration on to-day you are most completely redeeming your yester days, and doing your best for your possible but uncertain to-morrows. It is of 110 use crying over spilt milk; it is of no use to grieve concern ing what is absolutely inevitable or irretrievable, and because the events and relationships of your life will not run smoothly. If you have done your best, an angel could do 110 more. If yon have an evil day approach ing, an unpleasant hour in front of you, or any Itlnd of disagreeable duty or engagement whatever, meet It without delay. It is better, as a rule, to voluntarily face it sooner, than be compelled to do so later. Be' like the man in the moon-he sees a lot but never says n word.
WHY YOU SHOULD MARRY. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 3 July 1914
WHY YOU SHOULD MARRY. We deplore the fact that, because of the fearful extravagances of modern society, many of our best people con clude that they cannot possibly afford to get married. We are getting a fearful crop of old bachelors. They swarm around us. They go through life lop-sided. Half-dressed, they sit around sewing on buttons, and darning socks, and then go down to a long boarding house table which is bounded on the north and south and east and west by the Great Sahara Desert. We do not pity them nt all. May all their buttons be off tomorrow evening! Why do they not set up a plain home of their own and come into the Ark two by two? The supporting of a wife is looked upon as a great horror. Why, dear friends, with right and healthy no tions of time and eternity, it is very easy to support a wife if she be of the kind worth supporting. If she be educated into false notions of refine ment, and have "young ladies' Col lege" piled on her head till she be an imbecile, you will ne...

Falling Hair Caused by Dandruff. HOW TO DESTROY THE DANDRUFF GERM AND SAVE YOUR HAIR. Thin, brittle, colorless and scraggy hair is inute evidence of a neglected scalp ; of dandruff, that lawful .scourge. There is nothing so destructive to the hair as dandruff. It robs the hair of its lustre, its length and its very life, eventually producing a feverishnesss and itching of the scalp, which if not remedied causes the hair roots to shrink, loosen and die-then the hair falls out fust. For the purpose of destroying the dandruff germ you should get your chemist to prepare a lotion consisting of 3 ounces Bay Rum, 1 ounce Lavona de Composee and ^ dram Menthol Crystals. Rub this thoroughly into the scalp with finger tips. It will kill the dandruff germ at once and after the first application your hair will take on that life, lustre and luxuriance which is so beautiful. It will become wavy and fluffy, and have the appearance of abundance and incomparable gloss and softn3ss, but what will plea...
