CHOOSING A HAT. I The following advice is piven by a I well-known fashionable milliner: - ! "I have one rule {or most women. | I match tlx> hat to the hair. The re ; stilt is always good. Of course, if the I woman is old, with white hair, it is not so satisfactory. But the womnn with brown hair should wear a brown hat and tlw woman with red haii ' should woar n hat in dark red tones, j and so on. If you are going to buy a hat match your hair. ! "The second best thing is to match j the hat to the eyes. The woman with ; big brown eyes should wear a big ! brown hat. T'he jrirl with the saucer [ bluo eyes can wear a bii; blue liat. ; And the pirl with hazel eyes ought to i cultivate hats tliat are hazel and light j brown arid yellovM brown. ^ 1 be a success."

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

HOT WATER. Dr William Osier, formorly of John flopkins University, now regius pin fossor of medicine at Oxford, was talk ng, during his recent Canadian tour about tho importance of precision ii: :ho writing of prescriptions. " Wherever a sentence may haw iwo meanings," said Dr. Osier, " rest assured that tho wrong meaning will bo taken. Hence, it is important in prescription writing and in directions :o patients that tho greatest clarity %nd precision bo obtained. " A yot&ng foreigner one day visited a physician, and described a common nalady that had befallen him. "'Tho thing for you to do,' tho phy ician said, .'is to drink hot water an »our beforo breakfast every morning.' " ' Write it down, doctor, so I won't :orget it,' said the patient.

THE FARM AND DAIRY. THE COMPOSITION OF CHEESE IN RELATION TO QUALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 24 July 1914

THE FARM AND DAIRY. THE COMPOSITION OF CHEESE IN RELATION TO QUALITY. In fl report of the New York Dairymen's Association for 1891, we find tho followins statement tn an address given by Br. Robertson - "In every ease there was a gradual reduction in the quality of cheese when there was a less quantity of butter-fat in milk. . . . However, this is true also that the increased yield of cheese is not in direct pro portion to the increased percental of butter-fat ; that is, milk contain ing 3 per cent of buttcr-fat will yield a certain quantity of cheese but if yoti take milk having one third more tat (-1 per cent.) it will not yield one-third more chcc.se. At the same time, such milk is worth one-third more for checsemnking, anil thereby hangs a tale. You sec, if it does not yield so much cheese, it yields a quality of cheese so much better that the market value of the cheese from 100 lb. of milk is n third greater than the market value of the cheese in the other case. "Kvery two-tent...
