SHARE YOUR ROSES. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 30 May 1914
SHARE YOUR ROSES. A tourist brings this pleasant story about Andrew Carnegie from Scotland: At Skibo Castle Mr. Carnegie had a beautiful, rose garden. There were thousands of red and white and yellow roses always1 blooming there, and the villagers were free to saunter in the garden paths to their heart's content. One day the' head gardener waited upon Mr. Carnegie. "Sir, I wish to lodge a complaint," he ventured. "Well?" and the master waited. "Well, sir, I wish to inform you that the village folks aro plucking the roses in your rose garden. They are de nuding your rose trees, sir." "All," and there was a note of deep satisfaction in Mr. Carnegie's voice, "so my people aro fond of flowers, are they, Donald? Then you must plant more!"

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 30 May 1914
(From Our Special CorrcspondeJii). Canon Hughes should in demand as the conductor-not of a stadium for prize fights, but of spccial missions. He Las gained the right kind of fame (i1 would hardly be nice to call it notor ioty) that goes to draw the crowds, and that is what is needed nowadays. Wlwa the rows upon rows of empty pews in metropolitan churches are seen one can understand why church author ities in other countries are driven by the same lack ojp congregations, to re sort to all sorts of methods to attract tho people. It would ae.jn that if Borne cuurches here aro to bii kept open at all, sonic similar move in tho way or investing tho services with elements conducive to "popularity'' must be re sorted to. It is not'a pleasant fact but is none tho loss true. With this in view-the devising of means to draw tho corwds who, once brought within tho sacred prccincts to be am used may icma'u to pray-there are inlinito possibilities in the punch of Canon Hughes, which, since his en...
NATURAL SOAP. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 30 May 1914
NATURAL SOAP. It is said tliat in a mountain near Eko, N.vada, there is an ine.timist-'.ble .supply of pure soap. One may enter the niii:c with a butcher's knii'o and cut as l.irge a piece as lie ivuii:s. ' It is beautifully mottled, and en being ?ex posed to the air hardens .omcwhat. The mountain of olay is . of fine itx ture, and it contains boracic arid, sod.x and borate of lime. Its colour is given it by the iron and other materials. In its mineral state it is rather strong in alkali, and removes ink and other stains readily. At one time it was. used on tlio Pullman cars, but when its peculiar origin be earns generally known passengers appropriated it so: extensively for souvenirs' that the com pany was forced to go back to the common soap of commerce.
Terribly Tempted. CHAPTER XVI (Conunued.) [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 30 May 1914
Tempted. I A SERIAL STORY BY ^ ANNABEL GRAY. CHAPTER XVI (Conunued.) Lenore listened still silently. She had uttered as yet no word of repwicli or of indignation at the oruel fraud practised abroad 011 her young credul ity. She was only crushed and stunned -and his voice was no longer the opi ate that had lulled care to rest-it was the deliberate tone of a man of the world suggesting advantageous changes in his household in which sho could not share. There was no regret in his tone-not even sentiment-and yet, hurt her as ho would, there was but love in her heart and despair in its desperate bounds. "If you .were talking to some one who had no affection for you, whom you had quarrelled with, then I could understand a little what it all meant," she - said slowly; her voice changed: "No, you were not worth loving, Leon ard : and this-this is harder to bear than all-I havo lost my ideal. There may have been something sinful and idolatrous in my infatuation - I am certain it was a misfor...

FRICTION AVOIDED [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 30 May 1914
FRICTION AVOIDED A very ingenious method- of over coming the lrietion of intenneshing gears has recently been devised. 'I'll? gear teeth are eicetromngnetically held in engagement, without actually con tacting. The teeth of the driving gear are magnetised by means of suitable coils, while the testh of the driven gear servo in pairs as armatures for the magnetised tcoth. Of course such an arrangement would hardly b? suit able for slow, huavy v/ork, bccau.se the cost of current would be greater than 'that of lubricating oil and the loss due to friction, but for li^ht, high-speed work the electro-magnetic engagement would undoubtedly prove very advan taseausx

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. HOW TO PRESERVE BONES. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 30 May 1914
HOUSEHOLD HiMTS. HOW TO PRESERVE BONES. Ribs of beef and other joints aro frequently honed by the butcher and tlio bones sent with the meat. They should at 01102 bo examined, and any hits tiie least tainted choppd off and thrown away. The bones should then he put into tli? oven and baked slowly till dry. They will then keop good for several days, and, when wanted for soup, should ho soaked for half an hour in cold water before beginning to cook them. TO KEEP RAW MEAT SWEET. Run a littlo vinegar over a large dish, then place two pieces of stick across, lay the joint on the sticks, and the meat will keep quito fresh during the hottest weather. It will also prevent flies attacking it, since they dislike tho smell of vinegar. Store in a cool pantry. TO PREVENT MILK FROM BURN ING. When milk has to bo boiled and there is a fear of its burning, a good plan is to boil rapidly a little water j usfc enough to cover tho bottom or the pan-before putting in tho milk.

MOTOR CAR MAXIMS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 30 May 1914
MOTOR CAR MAXlEVfS. The fool rejoioeth 111 his speed; but t-lio wise man looketh well to liis gong. He that is void of -wiscloiu criticises his neighbour's vehicle;, but a man of un derstanding holdeth his peace. Be that trustoth his automobile to the care of a. hired man shall come quickly to grief; but ho that careth for it himself shall flourish like a branch. It is better to ride in a tramoar than with a nervous woman on a brass-trimmed motor-car. A wise man feareth and dcpartoth from crowded streets; but the fool gets in the middle of the crush and is confident. A righteous man re gardeth the life of his carriage; but the tender mercies of the scorotLer are few and far between. A smooth road maketh a cheerful countenance; but by a rough one are ths repairers made glad. When scorching cometh then cometh shame; but with the oareful rider is wisdom.

MANURES FOR POTATOES. WITH A BRIEF HISTORY. (By B. Harrison, F.L.S., in "The Land.") The potato (Solatium tub'Jrsum, Lu vis) is one of our most important food products, and its development and cul tivation have made rapid strides since it was first imported into Etiropa by the Spaniards, between 1580 and 1585, and afterwards into Great Britain by Sir Walter llnleigh. Iii "The Origin of Cultivated Plants," A. de Candaile says: "The potato is wild in Chin (South Amer.ca), in a form which is sti'i 6een in our cultivated plants, and its cultivation was diffused beforo the discovery of America, from _ Chili to Nrv Granada. It was introduced, probably in the latter half of tho six teenth century, into that part of the United States now known as Virginia and North Carolina, and it was the Virginian potato that Sir Walter brought back to Ireland about the eamo time as the Spaniards procured it. Its name in its own country was "openawk," which lias an Indian sound. Evidently dating from the ...
