Uncle Toby as Food. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 17 July 1903
Uncle Toby as Food. We often hear it said that Austra lian women and girls are not blossod with the clenr complexions of their American cousins. Many are-the jea unns put forward to account for this difference, but it is uow generally ac cepted as almost entirely a question of iflujd.
