REPOSE OF MANNER. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 6 June 1914
REPOSE OF MANNER. The art of repose is the moat valu able of weapons in woman's armory. For without repose no woman can be a pleasant companion, good friend or successful wife. Sooner or later the annoyance oc casioned by her mannerisms breeds dislike, which will deepen as time goes by. But the serene, the gracious, calm, and smiling woman, brings a soothing and refreshing influence of peace with her; and her friends', her lover, and her husband know that where she is will always abide that spirit 1 of cfoeer and comfort, of shelter and refuge, which is the true essence of home, of rest, and of untroubled hai> pinesa. f Every Orchardist who requires a Spraying Outfit for 1913, is hurrying his order in to The International Harvester Co. of Ausfc. so as to get it registered at the very low prico and easy terms now quoted. The "I.H.G." Outfit with its new Hopper Cooled Engine, is such a huge success, and the present terras of booking so remarkably favorable to buyers, that over 200 ...

"The Dispatch" SATURDAY, JUHE 6. Published Wednesday and Saturday Local and General News A revision court will be held a,t the court house on Wednesday. There will be a Pound sale next Wednesday. The Fact of Sin. Preaching' at the Methodist Church on Sunday evening on the above subject, the Rev. Hartshorn chose for his text Romans 3, 23, "For we all have sinned." He said the statement made by St. Paul was a sweeping assertion. Had he good ground for such a statement ? Their moral consciences could answer the question. They acknowledged with St. Paul that sin was a reality. To deny the existence of sin would be to deny Christ, and the cross, and to accuse God of gross ignorance of sending His son to fight a shadow. Did Christianity invent sin for the mere purpose of fighting it ? Certainly not. The price paid was too cost ly to entertain such a thought. Not only was sin a fact, but a universal fact. All were tainted with it. Attempts had been made to eliminate sin from the vocabulary...
NON-ROLLING VESSELS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 6 June 1914
NON-ROLLING VESSELS. | —_ i Inventors have devoted much t!me tn attempting to discover a means of preventing ships from rolling without &lt; success, but it is now" reported that a i young German engineer, Otto Schllck, has solved the problem. His device consists, says the "Sphere," of a upe cially-constructed turbine fixed on the "ship's bottom, which, when set In mo- • tion, counteracts any tendency of the : vessel to roll from side to side. The ' Invention is apparently an extension ! of the principle of the gyroscope which ! has already been used for the purpose . of steadying torpedoes. The gyroscope j Is a revolving disc of metal which re sists being out of its plane of rotation. ' In the presence of the German Naval Secretary, experiments have talten place on a torpedo boat, the Seebaer. The new invention, In addition to pre venting mal-de-mer, is expected to prove of great service to warships, a& it would ensure a more certain aim. I

STRANGER THAN FICTION. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 6 June 1914
STRANGER THAN FICTION. An English lady, while touring in Norway, stopped at a little wayside hostelry. Ascertaining that her visitor was English, the landlady expressed her pleasure, saying, "I am so glad, because I have a piece of fine fancy work which waa left hero by an Eng lish lady, and I wish to return it to her. The difficulty is that, although I know her name is Miss C , I do not know her address." She pressed her guest to take the parcel, with a view to its being returned to its owner. The visitor said that to find the lady to whom the parcel belonged would be almost an impossibility. Still, as the landlady was so anxious, she consen ted. She made the voyage home by a vessel with whose captain she had become acquainted in earlier travels. He now told her that he had re^.ntly married, and would like to introduce his wife to her when they reached their destination. The wife having been introduced, the captain said, turn ing to another lady, "Allow me to in troduce my sister-i...

RUSKIN AND FASHION. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 6 June 1914
RUSKIN AND FASHION. Right dress Is that which Is fit for the station in life, and the work to be done in it, and which is otherwise graceful, becoming, lasting, healthful and easy, on occasion splendid, always as beautiful as possible. Right dress is therefore strong, simple, radiantly clean, carefully put on, carefully kept. Beautiful dress is chiefly beautiful in color, in harmony of parts, and in mode of putting on and wearing. Or- i namentatlon involving design, such as I embroidery, etc., produced solely by i industry of hand, is highly desirable ( In the state dresses of all classes, down | to the lowest peasantry. National cos- | tume, wisely adopted and consistently worn, is not only desirable but neces sary in right national organisation. Obeying fashion is a great folly, and greater crime, but gradual changes in dress properly accompany a healthful aationa1 development. -Ruskin.

STANLEY'S HUMBLE ORIGIN. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 6 June 1914
•TANLEY'S HUMBLE ORIGIN. Stanley was by birth a Welshman, and his original name was not Stanley, but Rowlands. On the death of his father he was taken to the workhouse at St. Asaph. In his earliest youth it was seen that he was a child of no common order, and much was said by his schoolmaster concerning his extraordinary talents. He was first place# on a farm as a shepherd, and afterwards sent to a butcher's shop. Work as a butcher boy did not suit him, so he ran away from the butcher, and at the age of sixteen worked out his passage from Liverpool to New Orleans. On landing, homeless and penniless, he saw an announcement that a boy was wanted in the shop of one Henry Mortlake Stanley. He went In and asked for the eltua* tion. "And what can you do, my lad?" said the tradesman. "Anything that a boy of my age can be expected to do," was the reply. This, prompt and intelligent answer interested the Inquirer, and the youth got the situation. On the death of hla employer, who had adopted...

The every day plain, boiled potatoes,v^ent to table whole, or, by way of change, mashed, could be varied by one or oth er of the following reliable recipes:— Potatoes a la Francaise.—Peel sis nice round potatoes, not too large sized, cut each into eight pieces, shaped like the quarters of an orange, rounding off the sharp edges with a knife. Put in a frying-pan, and pour over them half a gill of clarified but ter. Stir all together, put the pan on the hottest part of the stove or range, and stir till they become a delicate brown, which they should do in about twenty minutes. Season with salt and pepper, and serve' on a ho' dish, with some minced parsley sprin kled over them. Potatoes done this ^ay are very good along with cold meat Potato Snow.—When the potato...
MORTLAKE BUTTER FACTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 6 June 1914
MORTLAKE BUTTER FACTORY. The following statements have been issued for the half-year ended, 31st March, and will be presented at a meeting of shareholders to be held on 13tli inst :— DIRECTOR'S REPORT. The quantities of milk and cream treated during the six months were respectively 151,702 gallons and 166,987 lbs. The butter fat yielded totalled 119,101 lbs., for which was paid the sum of £5878 16s Id, or an average price of 11.846 pence per lb. The profit shown on the Butter Factory Department, viz., £78 15s 4d, is ^'satisfactory in view of the high prices paid for butter fat. As was anticipated the Electric Light Department shows a sub stantial improvement on the pre vious two half-year's working. Notwithstanding the fact that the period under review included the summer months when the consum ption is least, the profit exceeded that for the previous half-year. This is accounted for by the greatly increased number of consumers, and the result of the present six months operations sh...

A FAMOUS FINE WOOL FLOCK. This is one of the historic homes of the best type of tho Western district . merino. Other flocks have from time to I time dropped out, but this one, with a few more, still keep going, notwith- j standing a statement which appeared in j the Sydney press a couple of years ago do the effect that Victorian wools of the Shaw type wore practically extinct. They are not nearly as numerous as tlioy were, but so long as the sons of the late Mr. Thomas Shaw hold Wooriwyrite, and have association with other historic j flocks, such as those of Carngham and ■ Langi Willi, the State of Victoria will surely be able to maintain its world wide reputation as the producer of mer ino wool of the highest possible quality.

FEDERAL PARLIAMENT. Double Dissolution Granted Unexpected Surprise Disapproval by Labour Members. [By Wire.] Melbourne, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 6 June 1914
Double Dissolution Granted Unexpected Surprise Disapproval by Labour Members. [By Wire.] Melbourne, Friday. When the Prime Minister an nounced his intention to apply for a double dissolution late on Thurs day evening, the most optimistic of the Labour Party felt that the Governor General would not accede to the Prime Minister's re quest. When Mr. Cook found that both of the test measures were so ruth lessly forced out by the Senate, he had no other course open but to apply to His Excellency for a double dissolution. A brief consultation with the Governor-General sufficed for him to come to the decision of a double dissolution. It now rests with the people of the Commonwealth to decide the issue and thus put an end to the present unsatisfactory state of the parties, which has caused the busi ness of the people being hung up. Candidates will at once com mence campaigning work, and an election will shortly be held. When the House met this morn ing the Prime Minister announced that he h...
