PERUVIAN ANTIQUITIES. ("The Queen.") [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 28 July 1914
PERflUVIAN ANTIQUITIES. ("The Queen.")_ Man comes and goes. It- is one of the humlities of humanity that only a few races and individuals leave any lasting memories behind them.., The works of their hands, too, die wi?? them. But; this is not always so. In Peru,. we come upon traces 'of vast civilisation of. high> order, of whiclh we have no actual knowledge,- save for some sculptured walls we are unn able to decipher, and marvellous ruins of stone buildings wonderfully con structed. "We have to content our selves with mere tradiions. few and far between.. History points to a Mongolian type, swept away by ..the: Incas, and supplanted by them' before the birth of Christ. But these early iemains of an extinct people :are of unrivalled interest. We hlive, how eever, some pre-Inca relics testifying to culture and strong .artistic tendencies and some of the texiles belonging to' the pre-Inca, period, as well as' to the' work of the great Inca. area, have been handed down in; iare perf...
TIT FOR TAT. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 28 July 1914
TIT' FOR TAT. Pat was in lodgings, and was greatly annoyed by the landlady helping her self to his provisions. She began by taking a piece of his butter, and when Pat came home she said: "Pat, I'mn taking a. little of your butter, but I'm not likeo other land ladies-I'm telling you." Next day it was an egg, and so on. Every day there was something taken and put off with the same remark: "I'm not like other landladies, I'm telling you." Of course there was never any re ductions in Pat's bill. One Saturday his bill came to a larger amount than usual. Pat looked at it, bundled up a few things in a handkerchief, walked to the door, and said: "Landlady, I'm sloping; I'm not like. other lodgers-I'm telling youl"
HERE AND THERE. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 28 July 1914
HERE AND THERE:. Dr. Basliford, Directoi 'of thb Im perial 'Cancer Research Fund ;Labora- tory, in, a. lecture at the recent Royal Sanitary institute, laid down rules for the avoidance of cancer. which may be epitomised as follow. COut, down your tobacco allowance, take the pledge, and eat your dinner with the .calm of a Cow. A warning to the over-strenuous was uttered aIt a National, Health Society meeting recently by Professor Stir 'ing. Severo bodily exercise, lie said was incompatible with full digestive ac tivity. Mental fatigue greatly' im paired bodily activity, and vice versa. Glands, like muscles, suffered from fatigue, and the result of a "quick lunch" 'was to exhaust the glands which supply tile digestive fluiids. The se cret of ,health, said the lccturer, was to be fouind in' rhythm. Between the heart beats was a regular pause,. whic permitted a restitution of matter and energy. On a larger scale, , sleep was such another quiescent period. Re pose was the necessary compl...

CRUISERS ABROAD. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 28 July 1914
CRUISERS ABROAD. A striking change has come over the cemnposition of the squadrons oni for eign service within the last four years (says the "Army and Navy Gazette"). They are composed in some cases of fewe"r ships than ordinary bht these vessels are much mone modern and efficieni for 4hco duties required., of them.: An: important -factor in this respect has been the construction of -the "city" class of light cruisers. It, was said at the, time tlhese ships' were designed that they would be especially useful for foreign service, and it will nowi be seen that practically all the squadrons abroad are leavened by them. The Cape Station is the latest to have a ship of the type attached to it, the Nottingham having been selected to replace the. Astraea. How great' is' the gain in the efficiency' of the squadron by the change is mani fest when it is remembered that the Astraea is over. twenty years old, with a -speed of about :nineteeni knots, and ans armamento of two 6 inch and eight 4.7...
WOMEN'S INTERESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 28 July 1914
iWOMEN'S INTERESTS (By "Ambrosine.") This is marmalade season. Most housewives prefer the home-made va rieties in spite of the good quality of the manufactured preserve. Many young housekeepers refrain from laying in a store of marmalade, erroneously labouring under the delu sion that it is "such an undertaking." As a matter of fact, given a good recipe plus common sense, the process is quite simple, the only tedious part of the operation being he slicing of the oranges. There are many kinds of llarmalade and several recipes for mak ihg these. The following recipes are very reli able, and are given specially for the readers of this column. Marmale (No. 1): Ingredients-21b. .ov\l!e oranges, 2 lemons, 81b loaf su gar, 22 teacupfuls water. Method: 'fake a large bowl and a small basin. Quarter the oranges.

A CHAPTER OF ACCIDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 28 July 1914
A CHAPTER OF ACCIDENTS. The fond mother of a boy, whom sho dearly hoped would eventually become a minister, sent him into the country and after a week of anxiety, received the following letter: "I got. here all right, and I forgot to write before. It is a very nice place to have fun. A fellow and me went out in a boat, and the boat tip-. ped over, and a man got me out, and 1 was so full of water that I didn't know anything for a long time. The other boy has to be buried when they find him. "A horse kicked me, and I've got to have some money to pay the doc tor for mending my head. It was broken a bit. We are going to set an old barn on fire to-night, and I'm not your son if I don't have some real fun. I lost my watch, and I am very sorry. I shall bring home a toad and a tame rook if I can get 'em in my trunk,"
HONEY AND ITS USES. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 28 July 1914
HONEY AND ITS USES. Honey.: might - with advantage ,be more generally used than it is' as an: article of diet.' The greatest, part of the honey produced in the United States (says -an American authority) is secured by the large-baking concerns. It is used in varying quantities in cakes and cookies, also those made with molasses, .soon become so. dry that they are not palatable. But -honey cakes will keep in good condition al most indefinitely.- Ifdeed, they seem to improve with age. In many homes honey is. a luxury. Honey is -food should not be considered a luxury, as a pound -of honey costs no more than a pound of candy, and is much better for tlo'children. B- read, butter and honey' is a luxury. Honey as food of diet' as pies and cakes, that often niake nup the -school luncheon. ' Can any, hdusewife make up a- complex mixture that is more delicious, than wholesome bread, good butter, and honey, to say nothing of digestibility.

SEA KALE. A LITTLE-KNOWN VEGETABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 28 July 1914
SEA KALE. A LITTLE-KNO'WN VEGETABLE. There is no miore wholesome veget- able than seakale, "and 'among those who are well acquainted with it there is none more highly esteemed. Along the coast of Western Esurope, including the British Isles, it grows as a weed. It has a. thick, fleshy root shock, which branches freely, and fleshy ovate leaves, with stout sheath ing stalks like thnia of celery. . The part thati is eaten is the leaf-stalk, which is made tender and agreeable in flavor by forcing. The plants will grow in an ordinary garden soil, but do hest in a rich sandy, loam which has been deeply3 trenched and further enriched with well rotted farniyard manure: Propa gation can 1e, effected 'either fromn roots or by seed, both of which may be secured now from local seedsmen. SEEDING AND TRANSPLANTING. Solw the seed in drills a foot apart and covet with very fine sand. When large enough, the young plants should be judiciously thinned out to iafford ample room for growth.

GARDEN NOTES. HOT WATER FOR STRAWBERRIES [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 28 July 1914
GARDEN NOTES. HOT WATER FOR STRAWBERRIES Writing on May 12, the Paris cor respondent of a London newspaper stated.:- Paris is already in the midst of the strawberry season. Straw berries are seen everywhere in tile fruit shops and in the restaurants, and it seems that for years past they had not made such an early appearance on tables in Paris. Perhaps the early abundance of the fruit is explained by a new discovery, which is already enr ployed by many gardeners, namely, the use of warm water in forcing the plants. The hot water treatment or flowers and fruit plants has been in use to a. certain extent for the last ten years, but its real advantages, it seems, as regards early fruits were not perceived until last winter. The old method of forcing. in hot houses is well-known, but it is an expensive one, and gardeners have been lo'oking for a.substitute. It appears now that all that is necessary is simply to pro tect the plants against frost, and to water them from time to time with'...
THE CURE CORNER. THE SICK ROOM IN WINTER. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 28 July 1914
THE CURE CORNER. . THE SICK ROOM IN WINTER. There are several small -points, im portant in themselves, which must" be attended to in the sick room in win ter. such as the admitting of fresh air without causing draught; the keep ing up the fire during the night with out disturbing the patient, being very careful that the change of personal clothing and sheets are always well aired, that there are two or three hot water bottles at hand, and tlat a kettle of water is always on the boil in the kitchen to fill them in case of the patient having a chill It is quite as important to have 4he room well v-nitilated in winter as in summer, but sometimes it is more difficult to accomplish, cspecially in rainy and windy weather. It can be done, how ever by opening the bottom sash a feiv inches, and tacking over it an old blanket, tthen tlhe fresh air will. filter through- without, causing a draught. The thernmometer: must be exminined from tinie 'to time, to see that the room. is .of the right t...
