HOW WOMEN WERE MADE. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 18 September 1914
HOW WOMEN WERE MADE.' According to a Hindu legend, this is the proper origin of woman: — Twashtri, the god Vulcan of the Hindu mythology, created the world. But on his commencing to create wo man he discovered that with man he had exhausted all his creative mater ials, and that not one solid element had been left. This, of course, great ly perplexed Twashtri, and caused him to fall into a profound medita tion. When he arose from it he pro ceeded as follows: He took the round ness of the moon, the undulating curves of the serpent, the graceful twist of the creeping plant, the light Shivering of the grass blade and the slenderness of the willow, the velvety softness of the flowers, the lightness of. the feather, the gentle gaze of the doe, th'e'frolicsomeness of the dancing sunbeam, the tears the cloud, the inconstancy of the wind, the timid ness of the hare, the vanity of the peacock, the hardness of the diamond, the sweetness of honey, the cruelty of the tiger, the heat of the fire,...
THE SCOTSMAN'S ADDRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 18 September 1914
THE SCOTSMAN'S ADDRESS. | Sir Josejh Lyons told a good story at the banquet of the Wine and Spir it Trades' Benevolent Society at the Connaught rooms. A card was given to each guest, on which he was to state the amount he .was prepared to give to the fund, and in relation to this Sir Joseph told of an Englishman, a Scotsman, and a Jew who met acci dentally and became travelling com panions. They were in India, and one day saw a native of high caste pur sued by a savage elephant. All three raised their guns simultaneously and killed the animal. The native, who proved .to be a high priest of Buddha, showed his gratitude by asking them to visit his temple, when any wish they might desire would be granted. The Englishman asked for glory, and his wish was freely complied with. The Scotsman said he would like to be a multi-millionaire, and was told that he would be made rich beyond the dreams of avarice. On the Jew being asked what he would like he replied, "I don't want much; you give me...

INVENTORS' FORTUNES. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 18 September 1914
INVENTORS' FORTUNES. The greatest inventions do not al ways bring the larger financial re wards. Roller skates are said to have brought their inventor six hundred thousand pounds, while nearly half a million was realised by the man who first devised bootlaces. The inventor of the safety-pin, who took the idea from a reproduction of a Pompeian fresco, made two million pounds. On the other hand, Charles Bourseul, who discovered and described the principle of the telepihone in 1855, died poor. Michaux, the inventor of the bicycle, ended his days in the utmost penury, and Frederic Sauvage, who is credited with the invention of the screw-pro pellor, was imprisoned and died bank rupt and insane.
PETROL DANGERS. Risks That Are Incurred by Unwary Owners of Motor Cars. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 18 September 1914
PETROL DANGERS. Risks That Are Incurred by Unwary Owners of Motor Cars. The experienced motorist has prob ably learnt that petrol has many po tential dangers, and he therefore handles it with a considerable amount of respect. The many newcomers in the field of motoring, however, may not be aware (or they pay insulS cient heed to the fact) that pecrpl makes an extremely explosive mix ture with air. It should be fully understood thai petrol can be ignited in a number of ways. For instance, the lighted end of a cigarette, when it reaches a suiTi ciently high temperature, will fire a mixture of petrol and air; a lighted or a glowing match, or even an o: dinary motor oil-lamp, is a source of danger. A strict rule should be made never to handle petrol, particularly in an enclosed space, where there is any chance of accidental ignition taking place. Dangers are run also in using petrol for car-cleaning purposes. Such ma terial as waste saturated -with petrol is often used quite carelessly ...
SIMPLE TESTS FOR MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 18 September 1914
SIMPLE TESTS FOR MILK. The commonest' way of adultering milk is with water, yet it is the easi est to discover without elaborate chemical tests. Good,, milk Bhould look white, with a yellowish tinge. It should have a pleasant odor, and taste sweet. Bluish milk is poor in fatty matter. Good milk is a little sticky when stirred, and lathers. If water has been put into it it does not lather. , If, when brought almost to the boil ing point, clots appear or adhere to the 'bottom of the pot, it is about to I change or sour, and is not fit to drink. If it curdles it certainly is not fresh,, as every housewife ought to know. If you wish to be sure that the milk is of the proper richness, take a long needle,'see that it is clean and dry, and dip it into the milk, an inch or so below the surface. Withdraw it, and if'the milk be pure.a large drop will adhere to the needle and hang there for some time. But if the milk drops from the needle quickly in several small drops it has certainly been ad...
ENCOURAGE HOSPITALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 18 September 1914
ENCOURAGE HOSPITALITY. Encourage your children to be hos pitable from early childhood as far as you can. Let them have little teas and birthday parties and invite their playfellows. It will help them to learn the charming grace of hospita lity and to develop and practise the social manners which will stand them in good stead later in life. Childhood is the best time to acquire the spirit of hospitality, * for the chicks are na turally generous-hearted and unself conscious.
A TALE OF THE BORDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 18 September 1914
A TALE OF THE BORDERS. In "Highways and By-ways in the Border," by the late Andrew Lang and his brother John, the honored name of Percy is linked with a story of defeat. In 1372 the Lord Percy of that day, the English Warden of the Marches, at the head of seven thpu sand men, lay encamped not far from the River Tweed. , "To scare away from their poor lit tle crops tl* 3 deer and wild cattle that were wont, when night fell, to ravage them, the Scottish country folk of that district used to sound at frequent, intervals a primitive kind of drum. To the ends of long poles they fixed | what may best be termed huge rat tles, made of dried skins tightly stretched over semi-circular ribs of wood. Inside each skin they put a few round pebbles. When shaken vigorously these rattles would give out a noise quite terrifying to any four-footed animal, especially -when heard in the stillness of the night." The clever Scotsmen planned a stampede, and in the pitchy black ness of miinight sent a numbe...
The Bereaved Widower. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 18 September 1914
The Bereaved Widower. Two weavers were heard conver sing. The older of the two remarked, that he had never lost a day's -work for twenty years except once, and that was when his wife died. "You don't say so!" exclaimed the 'other, in a tone of surprise. "Yes," replied the old minder; "I was just getting ready to go to th' factory when th* wife said to me, 'Jack, I do feel bed.' Of course, I ran for th' doctor, but when he came, bless me if she weren't dead." "You'd be much upset then," broke in the younger minder. "I—I were that; i were no joke, I can tell thee, losin' a day's wage." If it happens to be a dull day, don't be dull, too. If the day is inclined that way, there is all the more reason , why you should be cheerful.
A Hard Time Of It. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 18 September 1914
A Hard Time Of It. A lesson in elementary aaaiomy had been in progress. But the teacher did not flatter himself that he,, had made any lasting contribution to the knowledge of his pupils. "Now, can anybody tell me," said he at last, "what part of the body is the most hardly treated?" Only one youth showed any signs of intelligence, but he was most en thusiastic. "Well, Sammy, you seem to be the only boy who has learnt anything. Tell the class what you know." "The part of the body what has the rottenest time is the eye." "How is that, Sammy?" "Because all day it is under the lash, and every night it gets a good hiding."
The Road Hog. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 25 September 1914
■ I The Road Hog. They were going along the public highway at a leisurely rate of 40 miles per hour, when a decrepit hen and rooster started to do the chicken specialty—cross the road. The front and hind wheels, on the. right side struck the poor, old, stiff-' jointed rooster amidships, and with one squawk he succumbed. Immedi ately the man at the wheel started to slow down, and to look about for a place to turn. His solicitous wife turned to her seat-mate and said: "Isn't that just like his tender heart? He won't be satisfied unless he goes back and set tles for that rooster. He just can't bear to feel he has injured anyone or anything." Then, louder, to her husband, she said: "George, remember that ap pointment. We haven't any time to go back for anything." Glancing at the clock near his feet and at the speedometer near by, he sighed and said: "You're right, Jen nie; but I just know if I had turned back I would have killed that old hen just as easy as I did the rooster!"
SUCCESSFUL DAIRYING. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 25 September 1914
I SUCCESSFUL DAIRYING, f According to Mr. P. C. Lucas, an ex perienced dairy farmer, the three fundamentals to successful dairying are the man, the herd and the .farm. Anyone who does but even a meagre amount o£ travelling, and does this small amount with open eyes, is at once impressed with the signs of pros perity upon entering a dairy section. And upon closer inspection of the farms in that section he must bs im pressed with the varying degrees of prosperity, many of the dairymen se curing a greater return from a small herd than a majority of the others se cure from large and apparently equal ly good herds. And for all this there is ample reason. Still closei inspection will always show a lack of one or more of the three fundamental factors making for success in dairying—either the man, the herd or the farm. They are the three links which determine success. - The Man. If I were to name the all in all im portant item on the dairy farm, it would unquestionably be the dairy | farmer...
A SPLENDID FOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 25 September 1914
. A SPLENDID FOOL. By Ian Grosvenor. It was the sound of a woman's sob . which first attracted Carteris's atten tion to the girl's slender figure. Lean ing against a foul buttress of the slum's archway, blotted against the un speakable dirt of its crumbling mason ry, she crouched, weak, apparently on the verge of unconsciousness. Hesitatingly, the young surgeon halted on the mud-bespattered kerb, looking half-curiously at the "limp, pa thetic figure. Transitorilyv he believed her drunk, like many another he had passed t&it Saturday night during his careful threading of those noisome purlieus, then curiosity made him make a closer inspection of the girlish form. . Flinging the butt of his cigar in the mud, he stepped to her side, his face setting grimly, as by the flickering light of a distant gas jet he read the tragedy of poverty street in the white features of his strangely-met com panion. Starvation peered out at him from every line of a face lovely in spite of its awe-in...

Actually! [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 25 September 1914
Actually! There is a story told of an early Royal visit to Doncaster. before King George came to the Throne. Aii old Yorkshire woman had gone_ on the course for the sole purpose of se ing Royalty, and she called out excitedly: "Which is the "Kinj? Which is the King?" "There lie is,'' said someone near. "That's him with the handkerchief in his 'hand." "Ah!" gasped the old lady, a touch of reverent awe in her tone. Just then His Majesty, who had a cold in the head, performed a com monplace operation. "Goodness me!" the old lady ex claimed aghast. "He—he 'blows It's own nose!"
THE FRENCH WAR HORSE [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 25 September 1914
THE FRENCH WAR HORSE Horse-racing was a sport in France before England, and every English historian of horse-racing is careful to point out the benefits the islanders de rived l'rom a much-prized gift of "run ning horses" the French King Hugh Capet presented to Athelstan, a grand son of Alfred the Great, away back about a thousand years ago. But, how ever backward the Englanders may have been, and however progressive The French, in the production of fleet horses in those far-off and mystic days of Saxon rule, England has outstrip ped the world for its horses between the times of Henry I. (A.D. 1100) and the present day. It was not until af ter the downfall of Napoleon, until well into the twenties, that the French really recognised the great advantage of the thoroughbred, or attempted any thing like an organised effort to sys tematically improve the breed, with a view of improving their war horses. But in 1833—at the beck of the reign ing monarch, Louis Philippe—came the French Stud...

THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT. By FRED M. WHITE. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., London and Melb. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTE XX. Smash! '•••■ Herepath determined that Blanche should not know—at least, not yet— • of his terrible misfortune. There was no need to spoil her life with his trou bles. It would be good at any rate to know that she was provided for. Harold Gay was a fine fellow, who had had more than his share of mis . fortunes, most of which had been made for him by other people. Doubt less he would be over from Camford in a day or two, _ and then ali the news could be discussed. But Gay was over already. Here path found him there when he got home. He seemed to fill the little sit ting-room in the flat—a long, lean, bronzed man, hard as nails, and clear, of ■ eye as a child. Not a handsome man, perhaps, but good to look upon, and a face that invited confidence at the first glance. "Well, here you are, old man," he cried with a hand-grip that made G...
LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 25 September 1914
LADIES' LETTER. I should love to have seen Lady Dud ley's face when she got an answering cable from Mr. Tony Hordern. Do you remember tlie fuss the Dudleys made when he married Miss Bingham, and how Lady Dudley" stood godmother to the first baby? Of course, she thought of him as soon as she started her Aus tralian Field Hospital. I suppose she thought she could count on him for £10,000—possibly £5000, at the worst £1000. I can imagine breezy Lady Honora exclaiming, "Great Scott! Wrong again, mother!" For Mr. Hor dern, you know, turned the message over to the Patriotic Fund, and com mended it to their • attention. Mr. Colin Stephen, to whom Lady Dudley also wired, sent £50. Lady Dudley, when she started the Bush Nursing Scheme out here, found it very hard to get the thing moving. The real rea son never seemed to occur to the dear lady. People would not subscribe be cause the Dudleys did not head the list. "Why should they be generous with our money?" they wanted to know. One Kew land...
CHAPTER XXI. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 25 September 1914
CHAPTER XXI. So Dauiel Harley was Brigden's mysterious client. Herepath was not in the least surprised to make the discovery. Enid had more or less prepared him for it. xie recalled her strange agitation at the mention of Brigden's name. This was the con spiracy she hinted at, and he could see her reasons now for not being p'ainer with him. It was one more turn in the maze of mystery in which Enid's life was involved, and she had not 'been more explicit 'because she was afraid of her father's part in it. He could not hear what those men •were saying. They were muttering to themselves in whispers; they seemed to be dissatisfied about some thing. Herepath smiled grimly. They should have much greater cause for dissatisfaction before he had finished with them. He came forward and addressed them by name. "This_is quite an unexpected plea sure, gentlemen," he said. "Good evening, Mr. Brigden. Mr. Harley, t am delighted to see you here. But just one question. How did you get here, and wher...

QUADRUPLE WEDDING^ FOUR SISTERS MARRIED ON THE SAME DAY.. UNIQUE CHURCH CEREMONY AT BETHNAL GREEN. Four sisters, in pursuance of a mu tual vow to marry on the same day, stood side by side with their bride grooms at the altar of the church of St. Barnabas, Grove-road, Bethnal Green last month and were made hus bands and wives by one unique cere mony. Famous as Bethnal Green is for its double and treble weddings, the marriage of four sisters at once was a record, and all Bethnal Green put on its best clothes and turned out to see the ceremony.
