KINDLY WORDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 4 April 1911
KINDLY WORDS. Let the weakest, let the humblest, remember that in his daily course he can, if he will, shed around him almost a heaven. Kindly words, sympathising attentions, watchful ness against wounding men's sensi tiveness — these cost very little, but they are priceless in their value. Are they not almost the staple of our daily happiness? From hour to hour, from moment to moment, we v are supported, blessed by small , kindnesses. 66
Words of Wisdom. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 4 April 1911
Words of Wisdom. A stony heart and an iron will art a bad combination. What the tongue is, I suppose the man is. — Dickens. Thjy can do the best work who know best how to work. Happiness depends upon oursel ves as much as upon another. Those who waste on folly need not look for a cause to want. The first lesson in deceit is of ten taken by going into debt. To enjoy happiness is a great blessing, but to confer it on others a greater. There is no need to invest in another's polish to place upon our selves a shine. Those who forsake another in trouble may live to find their owa grow double. A bad temper makes a woman al ways unhappy, herself as well as others. A kindly disposition is like grease to the wheels of life. If I had to choose my place am ong the forces of nature, do you know what I would choose to be? I would be the dew that falls silent ly and invisibly over the face of na- ' ture, trampled underfoot and uncon sidered, but perpetually blessing and refreshing all forms of li...
American Humour. Their Meed of Praise. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 4 April 1911
American Humour. Their Meed of Praise. The Ladies' Aid Society was chanting of husbands as a class, with individ-' ual illustrations. The afternoon was bright, the work progressing- well, and the general tone of the company cheer- - ful. The keynote of the chant was at first tolerance, later raised to mild approval. 'They are useful in so many ways,' chirped a small woman, from her cor- , ner. 'When you have a bundle to be done up, or a picture to be hung, or anything squeaks for want of oiling.' - 'Or when the grocery boy tries to be smart, or the plumber tells you there's a new pipe needed, and you know there isn't,' came form the op posite corner. .'It just takes a word from John to reduce them to order, just a word!' 'Clerks respect the mere title,' chimed in another member. 'That is so well known that I have a friend — this is absolutely true — who orders her drygoods to be sent to her brotherin law's office and goes there to get them, rather than give her name, Miss - So-'an-S...

THE SUCCESSFUL HOSTESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 4 April 1911
THE SUCCESSFUL HOSTESS. The successful hostess is she who brings out the good points of her guests, subordinating her own gifts or using them only to draw out those of others. Often the best way to bring out a bright story is to tell bne yourself ; or if you want to get your guests to talk upon music or art or literature or home affairs, and any other subject, it is easy to steer the barque of conversation that way ; but when once the falk is well under way, let the hostess not attempt to shine too much herself. Always she should have in mind the pleasure and recognition by her guests of what is best in one another. Nothing of this sort is possible in a very large party. You must use I thought, tact, and goodwill if you would successfully entertain friends, and you must be able to get in touch with each. There is nothing so broadening to the mind as the exer cise of a- wise, thoughtful, hearty hospitality. In no place is a culti vated, refined, and thinking woman seen to such an adv...
THE SPEED OF LIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 4 April 1911
THE SPEED OF LIGHT. Light holds the record for high speed among all moving things that have been measured. It travels at the rate of 328,028,800 yards a second, according to the French sci entists. This is faster than think ing, even by the most quick-witted person. Let any. reader try to think the simplest tnougnt, ana men, with the aid of a stop-watch, note how long it has taken him to think it. He will then be able to un derstand how slow his mental opera tions are compared to the speed of light.
Cookery. Calves' Brains. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 4 April 1911
Cookery. Calves' Brains. Soak the brains in warm water to whiten. Then place in a stewpan with enough water to cover them, three tablespoonful of vinegar, and salt to taste. Let the brains simmer for half _ an hour, and then lay on a dish. Place in a frying pan a piece of but ter, or a little oil, throw in a few sprigs of parsley, and when thorough ly hot pour over the brains. Then add to the saucepan two tablespoonfuls of vinegar, and pour over the brains when boiling. Serve at once. Bath Buns. Put ilb. flour into a pan, make a hole in the centre, into which pour 1 tablespoonful yeast and a cupful of milk slightly warm. Mix together with a little of the flour, and leave near the fire to rise. Melt 6oz. pure lard and beat up 4 eggs; mix in with the rest. Allow it to rise again, and in about an hour put small balls of the mixture on a well-greased cake plate or tin, two or three inches apart, Sprinkle loaf sugar on the top, or brush over with egg- and milk. Add lemon peel if liked. F...
FOR THOSE WHO SHAVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 4 April 1911
FOR THOSE WHO SHAVE. To obviate the necessity of rub bing lather into the skin with the fingers when shaving, a small at tachment for the shaving brush has been provided. It consists of a rubber cap which is fitted over the handle of the brush. The end face of the cap is formed with a series of concentric annular flanges which catch the lather and assist in rub bing it into the skin. This is an American notion.
For Young Folks. ADVENTURES OF THE MOUSE FAMILY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 4 April 1911
For Young Folks. ADVENTURES OF THE MOUSE * FAMILY. 'Where's mother? Gone out again *his evening? Why, she's scarcely ever here now when I get home! What can she be doing?' 'Don't ask me,' said a sweet little voice from the other end of the empty schoolroom; 'she never tells me where she's going, and when .Tiddia asked her just now he nearly got his nose bitten off. 'Poor old Tid! You get in for' all the ill-luck when mother's in her tantrums. Why don't you go out on your own like me and find some thing for yourself?' 'So I would if it weren't for leav ing poor little Minchie alone here nearly all day. She's really too young to be allowed out by herself yet; besides, her eyesight's so bad, I don't believe she'd ever find any thing to eat if she went, and then she's so nervous!' 'Well, well, what's for supper to-night. I'm as hungry as / wolf, and have been dodging those lit tle wretches of boys for the last -half-hour as they left school, or I should have been home long ago.' 'Oh, de...
A NEW FIRE APPLIANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 4 April 1911
A NEW FIRE APPLIANCE. One of the latest fire appliances is the water tower, an ingenious de vice for throwing water on a burn ing buildng from a high altitude. Several of these towers are now in use in various parts oi the world, chiefly in the United States, the San Francisco Fire Brigade posses sing one known as the Gorter W ater Tower, named after its inventor, Mr. H. H. Gorter. It Is the tallest tower in the world when fully ex tended, reaching to a height of 76 feet. It can be operated, however, at any height, while the nozzle can be so directed that the stream of water may be thrown at any angle and in any direction. In cities, par ticularly where the buildings are tall, the appliance has undoubtedly much to commend it, as it enables the firemen to concentrate a stream of water on a burning edifice at a high altitude.

PAPER BOTTLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 4 April 1911
PAPER BOTTLES. The United States Bureau of Health have just had submitted to them a paper milk-bottle, the cost of which is so small that the cus tomer throws it away wher. empty, thus preventing trouble. The milk does not actually come into contact with the oaoer, because the latter is chemically treated. These bot | ties can be sealed, and milk allowed to remain in them will keep fresh for a longer time than in glass bottles. I ?
New, Odd, Interesting. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 4 April 1911
New, Odd, Interesting. - A Goldfish usually swim around a globe to the right. Two-thirds of Russia's population are peasants. Lettuce was deemed by the ancients the food of the dead. Russia is the largest producer of petroleum in the world. Except on the coast there are no inns or hotels in Morocco. In Morocco there are practically no roads or wheeled vehicles. ? ? / Ladies in Hanover are prohibited from wearing large hatpins in the street. A new farthing stamp has been re received in Barbadoes for use in the colony. A camel can travel 40 miles a day for 12 or 14 days without water, and carry a load of 4001bs. Cats seldom lie with their feet to the fire. Usually they /lie on the left side. Dogs lie with their paws to the fire. Donato Digilo, a young Italian, has lately cleared £3000 after a few years' hard work as a bootblack in. New York. The Argentine Tango is the latest Parisian dance. One of the figures is said to be something like the 'closing and opening of a fan. / ? The dema...
Random Readings. OBEYING ORDERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 4 April 1911
Random Readings. ? 0 OBEYING ORDERS. -When the street-railway com panies in New .York posted notices ?that passengers desiring transfers must ask for them at the time of paying fare or otherwise forfeit right to receive them, of course people constantly forgot. The troubles of the street-car employees were mate rially increased thereby — except in occasional instances. The conductor on an Amsterdam-avenue car was one day accosted by a quaint little twinkling-eyed old woman, who de manded her 'thransfer. 'You should have asked me when you paid,' he objected. 'Sure, but I thried to do ut, me bhoy,' she said, her innate friendli ness overflowing in a smile, 'but ye wuz that quick 'n' loively ye'd sthepped off befure I cud say a wur rud !' The conductors evidently reserved the right to make exceptions. This one was a good-natured-looking young man ; indeed, by this time everyone about had begun to Took good-natured. All right, grandma, he said jovi ally, 'I'll give you one this time. Wh...
THE CHARM OF WORDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 4 April 1911
THE CHARM OF WORDS. It is wonderful to note, says an American contemporary, how many persons of exquisite literary tastes agree that 'rosemary' is entitled to the 'beauty' crown among words. It certainly has the advantage that, if broken up into its component parts, each of them is still beautiful. It is true that a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but then it might not sound so well. Mary is certainly a beautiful name, unless you join it with Ann. On. the other hand, if 'Mary Ann', be written ''Marian,' we have a name that in itself is delightful, and has the add ed interest of conjuring up visions of Sherwood Forest and Robin Hood and Friar Tuck and other romantic figures. There is probably some in tangible influence about words that gives them for some people a pecu liar charm which for .others isi en tirely absent. Thus not everyone will see with De Quiricy a subtle sug gestion of the greatness of Rome in Livy's oft-reiterated phrase 'consul Romanus.' Virgil, indeed,...
A FAIR CITY OF SPAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 4 April 1911
A FAIR CITY OF SPAIN. I looked at the town that seemed to have too full a beauty to be quite real, writes C. Gasquoine Hartley in the 'Tramp.' Vigo was illumina ted for a fiesta night. In the white town, set upon ' its hill, with its granite houses rising in sharp up ward lines that compose perfectly like natural encrustations upon the rock, row after row of lights spark led and gleamed as in a fairy city, fantastic, improbable. From the ancient fortress of the Castillo del Castro, a dark mass between the town and the sky, which stood out in the changing flame of lights from the . silver green of trees and the , grass of the hillside, reports of cannons rang and echoed. Ever and anon rockets shot up into the night and fell in showers of stars; and every colour was' reflected in diminishing shades, above in the luminous moonlit sky, and below in the pallid silver sea The scene was as beautiful as a ro mance. Charming from its beautiful strangeness, when seen at night, or from a dista...
NOVEL WIND MOTOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 4 April 1911
NOVEL WIND MOTOR. An, American inventor has been experimenting with motors of a novel type. The motor consists of a series of wings formed with movable blades or shutters, so arranged that when the wings are in their lower position the blades are closed, and when the blades are moved to their upper position the blades are. open ed. Thus there is no resistance of fered by the' wings when moving against the wind. The turning of the blades is due to the fact that they are eccentrically, mounted, and their weight brings them into the open or closed position. Like the. ordinary windmill the motor is mounted to swivel freely, and is provided with a vane, which keeps it properly directed to the wind. Power from the motor is transmitted by chain and sprocket gearing to a horizontal shaft, below, and thence it is transmitted by bevel gearing to a vertical shaft on which the motor is mounted to swivel.
LENGTHENING THE LIFE OF CONCRETE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 4 April 1911
LENGTHENING THE LIFE OF CONCRETE. The rapid wearing of dust from cement concrete floors suggested to an inventor some experiments with protective coatings. Most of the paints and protectives on the mar ket were found to form only a thin veneer, .but several applications of dilute water-glass (sodium silicate) filled the pores near the surface, and hardened the concrete itself. This cheap application seems to be valu able for many uses. It strengthens concrete already set, and not only makes it more durable, but gives it resistance to sea water, acids, alka lies, and other chemicals.
