Studied Politeness. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 21 August 1914
Studied Politeness. I Atlantic captains of the older school were a hardened and humor ous lot of navigators, and many* a story of their eccentricities sur vives them. One in particular is of an old cap tain seeing: the terror of the jun ior officer during that nervous. or deal of treading the bridge for the first time with him. This particu lar old salt, after a painful si lence, turned to the young man and said, "I like you ; in fact, my dear sir, I should like to have your photograph. You skip down and get it." The nervous and delighted youth rushed off to his cabin and informed his brother officers t)f the complement the old man had just paid him. He was in luck's way, and ran gaily up onto the bridge, presented his photo graph, blushing modestly, to the old salt. " 'Umph ! Got a pin with you?-' "Ye-es, sir." "Ah, see ! X pin you on to the canvas here. 1 can look at you there and address you. You &lt; can go, (sir ; your photograph- is just as valuable as you appear to be...

Besides, it was the only portable ob ject in sight. Then to sneak it from the yard, dis pose of it for 6d. to a tinker, and to .rocure himself something to drink ?ith the money was a small matter, ven to that weary one.

A Misfit. » Money was none too plentiful in tho Juggins' household, so Jimmy, the son and heir, was generally dressed in the clothes which oncc fitted his father. Jimmy didn't exactly like this ar rangement, more especially ns his father stood over six feet high, and he himself was barely four and a half, while mother, who had to ef fect the transformation of the gar ments, was but an indifferent tai lor. One day Jimmy was found' by his father fumbling with his waistcoat he had just taken over. ''What's the matter now ?" growled Juggins, senior. .

The foreman called up all his men and lined them up in front of the of fice, and began to search their poc kets, the contractor looking on awe otricken. The pockets were emptied one after another until n...

THE DAIRY PAYMENT FOR BACTERIA. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 21 August 1914
THE DAIRY + TAYMENT FOR BACTERIA. I Cleanliness has a market value. ! This is particularly true -where cleanliness contributes to the quality of the food product. It has always been recognised that cleanliness should have a most important place in the production of mil'i, but strange to say, until recently, the number of quarts of milk and its chemical composition were the only things on which prices have been set. No price was set on cleanliness. The results ot clean methods are the banishment of dirt and the banish ment of bacteria from milk. As soon as the certified milh movement be gan, prices Immediately jumped for certified milk from 4d. to 6d., then to 7Jd. and now to lOd. per quart. The chief reason for this was the standard for bacteria which was set at 10,000 c.c. by -the Certified Milk Commission. In certified milk we liave only one standard for cleanli ness and one price. There are no de grees of excellence provided and no prices corresponding to the same. When one conte...
