Women in Turkey. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 2 October 1914

Women in Turkey. » Turkish girls of the better class in the cities, after they are too old to attend the primary schools, are largely educated at home by gover nesses, many of whom come from England and France, but, unfortu nately, do not always represent the highest culture of these na tions, so that the real love of stidy is not, as a rule, developed under their influence. Turkish women have a great ap titude for foreign "languages, and those met on the steamers of the Bosphorus often speak French, and it is not unusual for them to speak German and English also. It is a well-known fact that many Turkish women are engaged in trade, some even carrying on an extensive business, involving fre .quent journeys to Egypt and other places, which pre-supposes the abil ity to read and write, as well as some knowledge of arithmetic. Moreover, conversation with the Mussulman women in the capital reveals some progress at ..the pre-; sent time in independence of thought; and, while social condi ...

Novels of the Road. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 2 October 1914

Novels of the Road. i It was Fielding and Smollett who began the jolly tradition in English fiction of setting their heroes out on the road to pick up such curious adventures and com panions an they could i'nd there ; and it is at least a curious coin cidence that they both wrote on Don Quixote, the greatest, of all travellers, after Odysseus. Smollett wrote a translation of "Don Quix ote," and one of Fielding's earliest works was a play called " Don Quixote in England." So that it is not hard to guess where that tradition started. Dickons follow ed them in their tradition. He is the greatest novelist of the English road. There are more fine things of the road in him than in all of the rest put together. Thackeray did not follow the tradition. He used the road very little, and Miss Austen used it not at all. But in spite of these ex ceptions, that tradition of the value of the road in fiction was well established. Meredith and Mr. Hardy have both used the road. Evan Harrington retur...

WENT ONE BETTER. Riggs : "I've been most unfortu nate to-day." Biggs : "How so ?" Riggs : "Well, I sa\tf a piece of bread-and-jam in the road, and poked it with my walking-stick.

Cloth and Netties. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 2 October 1914

Cloth and Netties. 1 An English syndicate has recent ly paid over £15,000 for the right to make yarn and cloth out of nettle fibre, a German company owning, the patent. It expects to build up a big business from the use of what for generations has been regarded as a useless, annoy ing weed. But to-day the lowly nettle is put to a score of uses abroad. It is high in value as food for swine and poultry; in Sweden nettles are cultivated for cattle fodder., Poultry eat the seeds with avidity, and so do horses. . In England nettle beer, made from the stalks and leaves, is in great demand in some localities. Yarn and cloth, both fine and coarse, are made of the'fibre; and even carpets. Both fine lace and strong ropes are made from the Siberian nettle. One species of nettle produces nu tritious tubers, which are eaten boiled or raw in India. Another species supplies china cloth, or ra mie. The roots of nettles, boiled in alum, yield a fine yellow dye.tThe juice of the stalk and leaves is u...

Beloved Ugliness. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 2 October 1914

Beloved Ugliness. For some years now there has existed, in different forms, a love of ugliness-or so it appears. Take the Futurists, for instance, the Cubists, Post-Impressionists, and other "ists," that have lately burst upon an astonished world. Their work, if judged by the standards : of a few years ago, could not pos sibly be called beautiful; and yet it is almost worshipped by a grow ing number of people. - Even children have developed a love j of monstrosities in the shape of toys. One sees a child of to-day fondling some hideous toy freak with all the love imaginable. The same child would probably turn in disgust from the homely old rag doll. Why is it? Mr. -Crane, the famous artist, says ifc is because "children, like their el ders, like change.*' At present they haw taken a fancy for ugly toys, or, at any rate, are not' frightened of them. But he also thinks that children are still fond of the old picture-books of the 'seventies. After''all, we are all children-of different...

The Dying Seaforth. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 2 October 1914

The Dying- Seaforth. Long years ago I made a vow I'd ! train and go to war, | Where'er my country wanted me, whe ther near or fat* ; A soldier's life I cherished, and I loved the drum and fife, So I joined the gallant Seaforths, and served them all my life. You know I was quite healthy Bill, when serving in that corps, My cheeks were like a cherry red; of health I had a store; And in the cold Crimean trench; with footprints in the snow, I've heard the shrill blast sounded with measured beat and slow.. And through the stirring Mutiny my regiment suffered great ; You know those dusky fellows there would skulking on you wait And cut you down so quickly, they would rarely play the game : Thank God, I've been protected to share my regiment's fame. But these things undermined -men, some gallant fellows, too. . Much stronger men than T, Bill, yet safely I got through. . ." ' My eyesight fast is failing, though once quick to spot'the mark, But I have kept my hearing, and can listen to the l...

Home-made Paint Brush. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 2 October 1914

Home-made Paint Brush. "Necessity is the mother of inven tion," so when I wanted a paint brush ancl could not find one at hand, I proceeded to make one and was surprised at the good results ob tained. I wound some binder twine in a coil about my hand as shown, in the sketch. , After removing the coil from my hand I wound more twine tightly around one-half of the cpil, thus forming a handle for the brush and leaving the other half Brush Made from Rope Fiber for the brush part. I, then cut the brush end off square and combed out all the loose ends and the brush was complete. This brush was excellent for rough work and did fine work with surprising ly good; results. The length of the handle part anil the length and breadth of the brush can be modi-' lied to suit the purpose for which it is intended.

HE MEANT WELL. A countryman who was puffing away at"' a short clap pipe appeared to be considerably astonished when he came across a gentleman in oil skins lying in the muddy road un derneath his motor-car.: He stop ped some time., then a pitying look 1 crept into his eyes. "Hi !" he shouted. "I can fix you up, guv'nor !" "What on earth do you mean ?" asked the angry motorist, as he wriggled l'roni under the car.

Gun-Running Profits. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 9 October 1914

Gun-Running Profits. A A few years ngo I>r. A. Berger, an Oriental traveller, stated that gun-running has been pursued with success for some time past in i Egypt. | He had been assured ? cn good j authority that, in the event of an j insurrection the Kg.vptinn natives I would be found well armed with . modern weapons, there being over ?10,000 repeating rifles, with am I munition, buried in a certain neigh j bourhood. He declared that ships i laden with arms were able to defy I our cruisers by affirming that the ! cargoes were destined for Abyssinia, j In India a considerable gun-run ning business has been carried on for years, and in 1910 it was discover ed at the Monghyr Railway Sta tion that what was supposed to be a parcel of walking-sticks was in reality a consignment of arms. . By an ingenious contrivance the barrel of the. gun was concealed in a stick, on the same principle as sword sticks, and, as Monghyr is known throughout Bengal.. for its walking sticks, large consignme...
