Nottingham, wtaro examining th« wheels of a Manchester to London express, at three o'clock a.m., they were sim ply flabbergasted to find a boy hanging- firmly to part of the me chanism of the brakes. The lad uas absolutely stiff with cold and exposure, and told tho ollicials that he had travelled in that manner all the way from Manchester, a distance of eighty miles.

A STRANGE SHAMPOO. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 24 July 1914

A STRANGE SHAMPOO. I was much interested to learn from this young woman with the beautiful glossy hair that she never washes il with soap or artificial shampoo powders. Instead she makes her own shampoo by dissolv ing a teaspoonful of rftallax gra nules in a cup of hot water. "I make my chemist get the stallnx fur me," said she. "It comes only in ill), sealed packages, enough to make up twenty-five or thirty indi vidual shampoos, and it smells so good I could almost eat it." Cer tainly this little lady's hair did look wonderful even if she has j strange ideas of a shampoo. 3 am | tempted to try the plan myself. ]

Ladies' Column. SELECTION'S FROMTHE WORLD'S SMARTEST BEAUTY ARTICLES SIMPLE RECIPES MOST EF FECTIVE. HOW TO DISCARD AX UNSIGHT LY COMPLEXION. Hon- ninny women exclaim ns they behold their ugly complexion in the | mirror, "If I could only tear off this old skin !" and, do you know, ! it is now possible to do that very thing ? Not to actually remove the entire skin all of a sudden ; that would be too heroic a method, and painful, too, I imagine. The worn-out cuticle comes ofT in such tiny particles, and so jfraduallj* requiring about ten days to com plete the transformation-it doesn't hurt a bit. Day by day the beauti ful complexion underneath comes forth. Marvellous ! Ko matter how muddy, rough, blotchy, or aged your complexion, you can sure ly discard it by this simple pro cess. Just get some ordinary mereolised wax at your chemist's, apply nighdj* liko cold cr^ani, washing it off in the mornings. II MR.

Shaving Made Easy. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 24 July 1914

Shaving Made Easy. N" so,mis has yet arisen and in vented a macliinc to undress you and tuck you up in bed, but we are getting" on ! The unhappy man who daily strug gles with a hard beard in the chilly hour before breal-Yast may take cheer from the thought that an electric razor has been invented by some benefactor. This machine is* a safety razor, connected to a motor by means of a flexible shaft. The blades are ac tuated in such a way as to cut the beard by impact, or blows. This menus that the razor docs not need to be so sharp as in hand-shaving. Another advantage is that soap is not necessary, merely wetting tho skin being quite sutlicient. A fur ther boon is that it is very much quicker. The after-effects of this method are said to resemble those following a mild face massage. A plug is pro vided for attaching the razor to any ordinary lamp-socket. U sometimes takes a yotiv for Ujc bite of a rat to heal up, 1038.

Off the Target. Vat and Murphy, since both had fallen in love with the same wo man, became involved in a deadly feud. There seemed to be only one way of settling the matter-a duel. Pistols were agreed upon at twenty pace*. Hut. when the stoul Mur phy saw his h'an adversary facing him, he bewail immediately to raise objections. "lieilad," he said, "I'm twice as big a target «'* 1 -..~U4 PafN ".si'i'oiid" treated this amaz ing proposition quite seriously, and for a long while stood thought ful and puz/led. Then : "There's no need for that," lie said. "Pe aisy, now. I'll soon put the mat ter right." Taking a piece of chalk from his pocket, he drew two lines down the stout Murphy's coat, leaving n space bet wren them. "Now," he remarked, turning to I'at, "blaze away, ye spalpeen, and remember that any hits outside the clmlk lines don't count !"

Yawning as an Exercise. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 24 July 1914

Yawning as an Exercise. .Yhwning is said to have an ex ceedingly healthful function besides having a salutary effect in com plaints of the pharynx and tho eustachian tubes. According to in vestigations yawning is the most natural form of respiratory exer cise, bringing into notion nil tho form of respitatory muscles of the neck nnd chest. It is recommended Uint every per son should have n gnod yawn with the stretching of the limbs morning and evening for the purpr.se of ven tilating the lun.gs nnd tonifying tho respira t ory muscles.

IN BORROWED rj.-U.MES. Tlic Amir of Afghanistan, smitten with Westernizing notions, insists upon tho personages of his Court appearing in European clothes. There are many amusing features about this craze for European tires*, l.'se is made uf cast-off uniforms that may be seen in Kabul is as ama/.ing as it is amusing. The war like Afghan may be seen strutting about even in the stations on the Indian border as proud as a pea cock in a uniform which bears on It. the name of a well-known Lou don music-hall, while there are others in the uniforms of IOnglish and Cont inent al railway-guards.. Frequently it is only a coal that is worn, awl a pair of brown bare logs complete tho outfit. "You ask my hand in marriage. Aren't you rather ambitious ?" "Yes, but I ul ways did strive for big things." From that moment his case was hopeless.

SIR,--With roteronco to tho , remarks of Mr Stephen in regard to tho quarry in last issuo of j your paper, it seems to me that the worthy candidate for muni cipal honors has very little faith I in the acumen of the ratepayers' present representatives at tho Council table, if ratepayers are to infer from his remarks that our Council is prc-pared to Rive the Warragul Shire a vested intereet in the quarry for all time. Such is not tho case, as tho re port of the last mooting of tho Council, in your issue of the 10th itist, stato the position taken up by tho Council, simply t" be that thoy wore prepared to favorably consider a satisfactory financial proposal for tho joint working of the quarry by the two shires.

In Old Japan. THE CHARM OF KYOTO. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 24 July 1914

!n Old Japan. THIS CI] A KM OK KYOTO. Nn city in Japan lias xnor*» charm than Kyoto, none is per Imps so thoroughly worth while from the point of view of the tra veller. The Japanese have a say ing that you must never use the word magnificent till you have seen Nikko. Splendour indeed seems to mock at the hard reality of death on the terraced hillside planted with giant cryptomenas where the Shoguns sleep in such pomp. Hut isikko, despite its per fect natural surroundings, is withal a tomb, Kyoto old in story, a place of living men. This ancient capital of the Mikados has, despite modern innovations, maintained that essentially Japa nese character which is half obli terated in Tokio. True, t ho nar row streets arc a network over head of telephone and telegraph wires and electric cables. Voles almost bending under the weight of the cables they carry are curious and unattractive objects which have to be accepted in every little Ja panese town and village to-day. One of the first quest...
