LIFEBOATS IN SUIT-CASES. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 25 June 1914

LIFEBOATS IN SUIT-CASES. "Curry your own lifeboat" is the motto of. an Italian invent or, Mr. G. Piperno, who has what is probably the most ambitious marine life-saving ap pliance on record. When not in use the apparatus is packed into what looks like a man's suit-case, measuring 24in. by 16in. by Sin., and weighing 201b. WIici disas ter is imminent, the passenger bungs the suit-case on deck, breaks the seal, and the apparatus opens out and be comes a small boat. If it is necessary to abandon the ship the passenger steps into his pri vate boat, closes the outer cover, and launches his craft by hurling himself overboard. Then, according to j\lr. Piperno, the apparatus rights itself in the water, the top cover iv thrown open, and the occupant finds himself sitting in an absolutely nnsinkable ship.

COLD IRON BITS FOR HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 25 June 1914

COLD IRON BITS FOR HORSES. "An Experienced 'Horseman" in the "Kentucky Live Stock Record," re minds those who have the handling of horses of the cruelty ol which they may be carelessly guilty:— "Let anyone who has the care of a horse these cold, frosty mornings, deliberately grasp in his hand a piece of iron; indeed, let him touch it to the tip of his tongue, and then let him ! thrust the bit into the mouth of the horse if lie lias the heart to do it. The horse is an animal of nervous organ isation. His mouth is formed of deli cate glands and tissues. The temper ature of the blood is the same as in the human being, and, as .in man, the mouth is the warmest part of the body. Imagine, we repeat, the irri tation that would be to the humau,. and, if not the same degree, still the suffering to the animal is very great. And it is not a momentary pain. Pood is eaten with difficulty, and the irri tation repeated day oy day, causes loss of appetite and strength. Many a horse has become worth...

Where She Beat Them. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 25 June 1914

Where She Beat Them. The superintendent of a charitablej institution for the aged poor in aj certain district says that there is no topic more pleasing to some poor old j women than the discussion of their, "better days," when they were the fortunate possessors of "everything heart could wish for," as they are apt to express it. One old lady in the institution is never tired of describing the finery she had when she was a bride; an other boasted of having once' owned a "gold-band chiny tea-set", and six solid silver teaspoons; while a third dwelt at length on the elegance of a flowered silk gown and satin parasol with fringe fifteen inches long. One poor old lady stood this sort of talk as long as she could. . Then she calmly interrupted with— "Well, I never had no chiny tea things, nor no silk gowns, nor em broidered petticoats, not openwork stockings, nor gold ear-rings, nor no thin' of that sort; but I have had four- husbands, an' I'd like to know whether any of you can beat that...
