Knotty Problems. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 20 November 1914
Knotty Problems. * "Pa/' said little Bobby, who had heon allowed to sit up a while after supper with the under Handing that ho was to ask- no foolish questions. "Can you do everything ?" "Yes." "Can you make* & two-foot rule with only one end to it?" "Shut up and let your pa read a i little." I A short silence and again Bobby I piped in. "Can you make tho clock strike less than one, pa?" | "One more question like that," said his father, "and off to bed you go." Another short silence, and once more Bobbie 'chimed in. ^ i "Pa, can 1 a camel go ten days without water?" | "Yes, boy." "Well, how many daysv can ho go if he had water ?" The sound of a hurried shuffling was immediately heard, and Bobby was. landed into bed in two min utes. i A man purchased some red flan nel shirts guaranteed not to shrink, j Ho reminded tho salesman forcibly : of tho guarantee sonio weeks later. ! " Have you had aiiy difficulty ! with them?" tho latter asked. "No ; replied the customer ; "only 1 th...

Fire-flies as Flashlights. ? ' 1 , Travellers and tourists in Mexico ore invariably attracted by tho won derful skill and Ingenuity displayed by the Indians in the making of miniature objects which they offer for sale. Tho littlo dolls, for In stance, at Cuemavnca, Jin. tall, and dressed in finely embroidered raiment, are the admiration of every one who sees them. Bat perhaps tho most wonderful of. all are tiny crossed fleas which may be bought in Mexico . City. They are nil mounted in small boxes, which are littlo moro than Jin. each in dimension. Iforo are a brido and bridegroom, the former with her bridal veil and ornnge blossoms, and .the latter with his Prince Albert coat nnd silk hat.

Perils of Parachuting. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 27 November 1914
Perils of Parachuting. f Ballooning is, of course, a danger ous occupation, and there arc few parachutists who have not met with some accident during the course of their carecr. . Ono of these, named E. Markeberg, some years ago, had some very narrow escapes, and one in particular result ed in such serious injuries as to confine him to the hospital for four months. He was making a night ascension, followed by a search light. The start from the ground was successfully mado, but in mak ing the parachute descent he landed between two houses together; and the parachute collapsing failed to support his weight, with the result that he was precipitated some con siderable distance to the ground be low. Mr. Markeberg's most thrilling adventure, however, and from which he escaped without a scratch, \yas the time his balloon caught fire and burned. This happened in San .Francisco, and the exciting incident j was seen by the writer. Just as ! the monster bot-air bag was cut | loose, it was seen...

Royal Cinemas. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 27 November 1914
Royal Cinemas. 1 'Hie keen interest which the Royal Famiiy have of late displayed in conncction with cinematograph en tertainments is likely at Bucking ham Palace and Windsor Castle. Arrangements are at the present time being ma.de for providing the Royal palaces with appliances of their own, in order to permit of films being" shown at short notice. The King and Queen recognise in film pictures a development which ihas obvious elements of permanent I interest and value, and they arc de sirious of enabling the younger | generation to benefit fully by this ! : source of information and enjoy- \ jment. There can bo an electric! I projector provided for ubc at the i Royal residences as required, in | the manner already adopted by one of the Rothschilds for the c-isplay of films privately taken under ama teur conditions'; but this haB not yet been settled, it being felt that operators necessarily prefer to use their own projecting instruments.

A Decorative Spill Holder. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 27 November 1914
A Decorative Spill Holder. Dainty and decorative little arti cles hung upon the walls make a wonderful difference to the appear ance of a room, and in our sketch we show a particularly pretty hol der for spills that can be made without difficulty by clever fingers. For making it, in the first place, a diamond-shaped piece of stiff cardboard must be cut out and covered on that side which is to be the front with cream-coloured satin, and for the back any odd remnant of ma tcrinl can he used, ' as it will not be visible when the holder is hang ing up, but, prior to covering the curd, the pockets must be sewn in their plnccs. These pockets are cut out jp one piece of satin and lined with soft silk, _ and seamed down the ccntre to make the two divi sions. The pretty floral design which appears tipon each of them consists of three palo pink blos soms and four leaves worked in various shades of green. The Holder is edged throughout with a crimson silk cord carried into three little loops a...

HOW TO MAKE TEA. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 27 November 1914
HOW TO MAKE TEA. It cannot ho too often repeated that tea which has boiled or which has boon infused for a long time is productive of indigestion, and parti cularly when it is taken at the same time as meat or fish. The Chinese make their tea by using large quantities of tea and strain ing off the infusion as soon as the water has been poured on the leaves. By this method tea is at, its best, as the stimulating; sub- I stance of tea is given up imme-' rtiatoly, and the only result of keep ing the wat.cr for long on the! leaves is to increase the tannin in the tea and give it a higher co lour. Tea whioh has to he kept hot for tardy members of the family should vbe strained ofl into on- j other pot. I

(ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.) UNDER THE BAN .OF THE CZAR,® ; OB, THE WINNING OF ISOLDE. 3y St. Gcorgn Hnthbomo, Author oI "Omar Kassam," etc. SYNOPSIS OP PREVIOUS PARTS. Owen Dugdale, the wealthy owner of an estate in Leinster ; an artist, journalist, and idler, and an impul sive Irishman, has mapped out for himself a month's journey in South ern Russia. His passport, through a blunder on the part of the officials, calls for Owen Dugdale and wife, a luxury ho has never possessed. Naturally this leads to strange and ridiculous complications as in Bohe mian fashion hp, wanders over the plains and mountains »of Russia. Evening is sotting in as his telega driven by Vladimir, a Don Cossack, who fears neither'man nor.: devil; ap proaches tho . town of .Rustchuk. Shortly .-after.passing a mounted; mili-r tary, officer and two Cossacks, our traveller discovers a wrecked telega in his path, On investigation Owen is startled by the discovery that the luckless vehicle is occupied by a lady and he bec...
DAMP LINEN. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 27 November 1914
DAMP LINEN. Nothing nuty ho attended with more serious consequences thnn sleeping in damp linen. Persons are. frequently assured that the sheets have hrcn at the fire for many hours; | but the question is as to what sort of fire, and whether they havo been properly turned, so that every part has been exposed to the fire. The fear of creasing the linen pre vents many from unfolding it, so ns to ho sufficiently aired ; but health is of more importance than appear ances.
PART 7. CHAPTER XIX. "FOR LIBERTY! STRIKE HOME, VLADIMIR! TO THE GATE!" [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 27 November 1914
PART 7. CHAPTER XIX. "FOR LIBERTY ! STRIKE HOME, VLADIMIR t TO THE GATE I" The Russian colonel was no fool. He realised that there might be high stakes involved in this game, and hence it would pay him to use an extra amount of precaution. 'Then, again, little dramas of this character were an unusual occurrence in this benighted region. Smolensk might as well have been at the other end of Siberia for all the pleasure he was able to extract from life, and he was in no particular hurry to bring, the entertainment to a conclu sion. . Glimpses bad been had of a party of horsemen galloping madly down the mountain road and heading for the town. When they arrived, doubt less the nut would be cracked, the enigma solved. He could well afford to wait. With Dugdale it was quite another question, for he Vjnew delay must be fatal to all his hopes. General Grats cbeff was even closer than they ima gined, arid was apt to come whirling through the gate at any moment. The colonel looked at the occu ...
CHAPTER XX. THE END OF THE MAD CHASE. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 27 November 1914
CHAPTER XX. THE END OP THE MAD CHASE. Tbc response to Dugdale's shout was immediate. | A Cossack yell, fierce enough to startle a man of iron nerve, the snaP | of the cruel whip upon the flanks of the leading horse, already in motion, \ and away went the dust-covered tele-: ga with a mad rush towards the' southern gatewaj. Dugdale heard the doughty colonel scream with sudden fury, just as an enraged animal in a cage might do. The roar of the whirling telega pre vented him from catching, the full tenor of his outcry, but he could easily give a guess as to its nature, and, moreover, it mattered very lit tle, after all, what he said. Other things held Owen's attention. There was the lieutenant, for in stance, who had been seated beside the isvochik. When the sudden start was made he floundered about like one who had lost his head, and came within an ace of falling back in Dug dale's lap. That individual was of the opinion there was one lieutenant too many in the vehicle ; so, instead o...
The Only Unattended Lighthouse. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 27 November 1914
The Only. Unattended Lighthouse. What is declared to be the only unattended lighthouse built on a wave-washed .rock, possessing a powerful fog-signal, is the recently completed Tlattc Fougere Light house, marking the entrance to the Uussell Channel leading to tho Guernsey capital of St. Peter's Port, a spot which figures in Vic tor Hugo's great romance, " The Toilers of the Sea.'* This unat tended tower, built of fert^o-concrcte which rises on a wave-v ashed rock, is 80ft. in height. The head of the rock on which it stands is only visible at low tide, while it in difficult to approach even in the smoothest weather, owing to tides and currents. Much of the foun dation work had to be carried out under water. The tower, says tho ' Sphere,' is solid for a height of 46ft. above tho rock, and the base is formed of Portland cement placed in iron moulds with iron bars driven into the solid rock to anchor the con crete firmly. On the side to which the . building is exposed to the heaviest' s...

Tramway Extension. TOORAK ROAD PROPOSAL. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 27 November 1914
Tramway Extension. TOORAIC ROAD PROPOSAL. A meeting convened on the 191 )i inst by tliK 'i'onrak-road Tranlivay Extension League held in Tooronga House, was largely attended, and Or W. Rogers Thomson, mayor of Mal vern, presided. It was urged by Mr Chas. E. Howie and other speakers that a short electric tram line ot 150 chains s-hou'd be constructed along Tooiak road from the c;ibl(; tram terminus at Irving-road through Malvern and Hawthorn municipalities to Burke-' road, immediately the war is con cluded. It was claimed that the line would prove an invaluable" asset through the development of this por tion of the two municipalities. It was shown that there were 500 acres along the proposed route and within the area, and room for 2000 houses, with an average of five, would mean an additional population of 10,000. If trams already constructed could be taken as a criterion, the land should increase in value, and would mean additional revenue to the tnunici palities.concerned in the wa...
