WOMAN'S UNIQUE EMPLOYMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 22 May 1913
WOMAN'S UNIQUE EMPLOY. MENT. ----+-- Au lllisunl occupation which is mainly in the hands of one woman on account of her special and marvel lous skill, is that of modelling in sects and plantasor-.the- NP-ntirh liB-R ... tory Museums. It is well, perhaps, to point out that these in no way re semble the imitation ilowers ndl fruits of our grandmother's lday. They arn marvels of beauty and ic curacy, many of them, the mosqui toes and tactso flies in the South Kensington Museum, for instance, are magnified and therefore their struc ture can he examined and studied without the help of a magnifying glass. Among the many trades whlch exist, hbut which are not us a ruli lilled up in the census papers, are the "fakers" of all kinds, from the msanl facturer of antilue furniture and brasses to the bird fancier who can pass a sparrow as a canary. f'erlsaps the most curious form of "faking" is that which deals with turkeys, dead or alive, and which is principally practised in France. The age of ...

Jack undoubtedly means every word although he dresses his language in this bombastic manner In order to match Roblido, who, impressed with the fact that his devotion to duty nas a Spanish gentleman has borne fruit, eagerly reaches out his long thin hand.

NONATIONAL PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 22 May 1913
N"O NATIONAL PARLIAMENT. The attention of voters should be directed to the fact that the claim of the Labor Party that the National --Parliament should be trusted with• greater powers is made at a time when that Na tional Parliament h'as .practically ceased to-exist.

IRELATIONSHIp. A fox terrier and an Irish terrier had a disagreement outside, the other day, and the Irish terrier was evi dently getting the worst of the bat. tie. A passing Irishman slipped up to ( the dogs and gave the fox terrier a kick that sent him howling away. "What was that for, Put ?" asked a bystander. "f3egorra," he said, "blood is, thicker than water, annyway I" It is a good plan to sprinkle saw duat evenly on the boards before lay ing down oilcloth.

A CURIOUS OCCUPATION. ---+--- Life in hum-drum enough for the majority of people who follow nm ployhIents that give occupation to millions of other workers; but in the lqiet back-waters of commerce there are many qlaint and cur;ous occupa tions followed only by one or two. Perhaps one of the least known of these is that of tyre "testing." There is at least one big firm that employs four men at this work. The firm has two depots about twenty miles apart and- i a bicycle is ridden constantly be tween the two, four hours being al lowed for the double journey. One rider is timed out from one depot, is hooked in. and s ut at the other, anm oi his' return ithe bicycle is at once taken over by another man, and is again ridden the forty miles. Day and night, winter and summer, year in and year out, that bicycle is being constantly ridden, the object being to ascertain the quality of each batch of tyres bought, and the length of time for which each can be guaran teed.
