Twenty drops of carbolic acid evap orated from a hot shovel will go far to banish' flics from a room. ?An invaluable cure for sore eyes is a ' little boracic powder dissolved in warm water.

MONEY LENDERS' TRICKS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 20 January 1914
MONEY LENDERS' TRICKS. Tho attempt ran.de by Rev Herbert Williams, tho rector of a London suburban church, to touch enterprising money lenders something about their own business has tailed. Enterprising money lenders have adopted the practice of sending unsolicited loans of £50 to £100, to persons whom they believe to be in need of finanoial assistance. They are careful to select good marks in tho form of persons who have o social position to maintain, and cannot -repudiate a loan or go in solvent without tlie danger of sacrific ing their position. Clergymen are among those whom the money lenders approach in this way, and aB many of the clorgy in England are .wretchedly paid some readily succumb to the temptation of a loan. The money ia Bent in bank notes, the money lender acting on the assumption that a man who is in need of money will find it difficult to make up his mind to return notes after handling, them'.

THE STRANGER WAS READY. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 20 January 1914
THE STRANGER WAS READY. On a cold night a man was hasten ing with' his overcoat buttoned up to his chin. He was rather anxious to know what time it was, but he was too lazy to open his coat in order to get at his watch. Just then he saw a . well-dressed man approaching and re- ' marked to himself: "This is a joke.' I'll e'en ask voji gentle stranger what time it is and he will unbosom." He perceived that 'the stranger was but toned up just as he was; When he came up, the man who wanted to know the time removed his hat politely, and said: "Sir, do you know what time it is?" The stranger paused, removed his right glove, unbuttoned his coat . from top to botto.m, unbuttoned his ; undercoat, and finally pulled out his i watch, while the chill wind cut into i his unprotected chest. Holding up his watch so that the light would shine upon its face for an instant, he glanced at it and growled: "Yes!" Then he. passed on without another word.

THE OVER-STOCKED STAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 20 January 1914
THE OVER-STOCKED STAGE.: To appear in public as an actress and to captivate audicnccs is perhaps (states A. O., in the "Pall Mall. GaZf ette")i the most persuasive lure that modern days hold out. As an incen« tive to ambition it is without equal, and, in highly-favoured cases, the ro ward unquestionably equals, and in many outweighs, the laibour involved. For it is a strenuous occupation, this of the delineation of character and the interpretation of ideas. That can not be controverted. But whether it holds out inducements that may fair ly be reckoned adequate to the cliances of their realisation is another patter. ? One feature of the situation as it affects women aspirants to dramatie honours to-day should be emphasised. This is that fitness consists less in the ability to act in the sense of the word formerly accepted than in being of at tractive appearancc and in possessing: charm of manner. A woman! for in stance, who is capable of rising tq respectable, even considerable, his ...
