LADIES' COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 20 March 1914
LADIES' COLUMN. (By "Ambrosine.") The average Frenchwoman dre-sses6 in nothing but ratine or in some cloth of the same family, known under the name of velours-de-laine, or velpeen, but always very much the same thing to look at. She has it made into a funny- little tailor-made and trimmed with-buttons and fur collar and cuffs, and with it she wears a chiffon blouse in the same colour over a very light colored chiffon lining. When it- is cold she adds a. stole. and muff to her toilette, and her hat will probably be in velvet to match the costume. Thus turned out. she will be sufficiently -'dressoed." or shopping, visiting in the ordinary mŽy, or for a tea in an hotel or t-oa-roeom. Her shoes will have short patent-leather vamps and cloth tops, and her gloves will be either yel low or mast-ic suede. If quite young, she will wear her throat bare, if she has passed her first youth she will have a high guimpe. It is considered far better tasto to be dressed as simply as this in Paris, ev...

SIZE OF BATTLESHIPS. HAS THE MAXIMU?M BEEN REACHED? "BATTLE OF EGGSHELLS." LONDON, WEDNESDAY. A thought-arfi .eg n sage in the speeoh delivered by Mr Winston Ohurchill during the debate on the naval egstimates in the House of Commons yesterday is being dis cussed by the nowspapors and by naval experts. Mr Churchill dealared that the true picture of a battle between modern battleships was not a fight between mon in armor catri~n at each other with heavy syord, but a battle of tw o eggehelle striking at each other with hammers. Mr Churchill added that this fact must uggoest doubts as to whether anor mous ahips of war are not approach ing their culminating phase. Experts, commenoting on these observations of the First Lord, point out that submarines have almost the range of býttleehips, while tor pedoes travel for seven miles at a speed of 29 knote, but, nevertheless, they are doubtful Thither it would bo cafe to reduce the sie of capital ships.
AGRICULTURAL ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 20 March 1914
SAGRICULTURAL !TEMS. Be careful to have the right percen tae of acid in the milk for the parti cular kind of cheese being made before adding the rennet. It is also im portant to have the milk at a suit able renneting temperature, as upon these two factors and the proportion of rennet added will depend the state of the resulting curd. When the substance in which bac teria are present is heated to a high temperature they turn to spores, and in this form retain their vitality for a very long time. These spores cannot develop into bacteria until the sub s?anoe in which they are is at a fovar able temperature and contains a con siderable proportion of moisture. The cream that has risen on the milk bvernight must be skimmed off and warmed up to about 100deg. F. When the milk in the vat has been warmed up the cream should be added to it and well stirred in. If the cream is not first removed and warmed up it cannot be got to mix thoroughly with the milk. At the end of the cheesmaking sea so...

STRANGE JEWEL ROBBERY. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 20 March 1914
STRANGE JEWEL ROBBERY. A few weeks ago curious news was received in Paris from Nantes to the effect that a daring jewel robbery had been committed there to the detriment of a travelling agent, whose box of jewels was mysteriously removed, and another, filled with soap, pu in its place. The agent, M. xonnot, had come from Besancon with a box full of jewels and a valise. As he had to visit a number of jewellers in the town, he called on one of them, who was till then his best customer, a cer tain M. Plazolles; and as his box was too heavy to move about easily, lihe asked the jeweller to keep it for him as well as the valise. On the following day, according to M. Elazolles, a messenger came and told him that he had orders to take the box and the valise to the railway station. The jeweller stated that he gave up the articles, but soon after wards he alleged he had doubts, and telephoned to M. Monnot, telling him what had happened. M.

GENERAL NEWS. Instructions have been given for.1 the removal of all tools from the State coal mine at Wonthaggi. It is understood that this means a pro tracted stoppage.

Being a poor men, he was unable t:p pay this charge, and unwilling to have his child buried as a pauper he took the corpse back to bury it on his allotment of Mallee land.

REUTER'S CABLES. L'AFFAIRE CALMETTE. INTENSE EXCITEMENT IN FRANCE. ROYALISTS CAUSE DISTUR BANCE. PARIS, WEDNTnS DAY. The excitement over the murder of M. Calmette, editor of the " Figaro," by Madame Caillaux sur passes that created by the famous case of Madame Steinheil and almost equals that caused by l'affaireo Dreyfus. It has been intensified by the pro minence attained by M. Caillaux in his efforts to rally the Radical forces, which were riven in twain by M. Briand recently when he formed his new party, and also by M. Caillaux's success in regaining his personal supremacy in the party after the Congo disclosures. The articles of M. Calmette assail ing M. Caillaux have had no equal in bitterness since Zolals "J'accuso" in the Dreyfus case. M. Calmrnette's revelations regarding the banker Rochette were the culminating sen sation. When they were reported on the Boulevards, large and excited crowds paraded until the early hours of the morning excitedly discussing the scandal. A Roya...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 20 March 1914
Tsx most fervent advocates of a world's peace, as well as those who have for long regarded a possible Anglo-German war as a "corime "against humanity," can scarcely close their ears and minds to the grave portents of the times. The period of "scares" is past. The British Empire is confronted with a definite situation-alarmingly de finite, if we are to pay heed to the axioms and thesis elaborated by Von Bernhardi, the eminent German militarist. With calm deliberation he traces the cause of the quarrel, entirely justifies it on international and even ethical grounds, and out lines for his countrymen and the world at large the method and the results of such a conflict. He is neither a fire-eater nor an extreme Anglophobe. He ie a high-placed German General in whom the Kaiser and the nation place im plidit confidence. And he tells us that the British Empire must be shattered, that France must be humiliated beyond any possibility of recovery-and all because the Teuton must find means of ...
OATS AND NITROGEN. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 20 March 1914
OATS AND NITROGEN, It is considered by man"y horse breed era that the feeding quality of the oat crop is prejudiced in thc growth of oats has bee-n forced by liberal dress ings of nitrogenous fertilisers. In connection with this theory it is in teresting to note that tho following opinion of a practical export. Ho found that oats which had received a large dresing of only nitrogenous fea tilisor, produce deffects on his horses of an undesirable nature, as they sweated profusely and lost condition. 4nalysis showed that the oats - thus mnanuro contained 15 to 20 per cent, of albuminoids. When, however, in addition to the nitrogenous dressing, the crop of oats had the benefit of a dressing of phosphates and potash, the deleteroud effect of the oats on the horse was not noticed. and it was found that albumninoids in their composition had decreased to 11 per cent. Hence the different effect on the horses.
ELEPHANT STICKING. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 20 March 1914
ELEPIHANT STICKING. After the favorite sport of the Nuba Arabs in the Soudan, the roughest football or the riskiest polo seems de plorably tame and mild. In that far away corner of Africa, thp most popun lar form of amusement an s ofing circles is to hunt elephants as British people hunt pigs-on horseback and armed only with a spear. A writer in the "Morning Post" gives a graphic account of a morning's sport with these bold barbarians. Elephant hunting, under any oiroumstanees is a st renouos and venturesome pursuyi.~, and the white sportsman, with the bit of beaters and the heaviest armaments, often carries his life in his hands. But the game as played by i"i Arabs of - Slrr-n tU o .a3 5t f. ziu~nojV qnN ous lu a u, calls for an iron nerve, a superb horsemanship, and a reckless daring. The elephants graze on the in herds.
