CUSTOMS AT THE TABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 12 February 1915

CUSTOMS AT THE TABfcE^ * V Ajb a carefully set dinner table should be at each place three forks at t.he left, two or three knives and a tablespoon on the right, glasses for water and other beverages on the right above the knives. A nap kin plainly folded is in the centre, enclosing a roll. If other silver is needed during dinner, it is placed be fore the course is to be served, but the first arrangement described is the usual rule, and avoids confusion. The tablespoon is u^d for soap. Soup should be taken fr^ra the side of the spoon. Sipping one'* soup with a hissing noise is unpardon able, and tilting the soup piate to secure the last spoonful is bad form. At luncheon bouillon is served ip cups, and is taken with a teaspoon ; t.he spoon may be put down, and the, cup raised to the lips for the last spoonfuls. Tho fork is used for so many things that a witty person once re marked that he took "everythinb with it except afternoon tea." The silver fish-knife and fork are now in general...

FIGHTING IN THE EAST [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 12 February 1915

FIGHTING IN THE EAST On the Eastern front, hard fightiug is re ported from the Carpathians, where the Austrians, strongly reinforced by the Germans, are struggling desperately to regain their lost positions. The Aus tria ns claim to have recovered a num ber of the positions, but this is con tradicted by the news from Petrograd. The Turks have been driven into Per sia; it is said the Persians are in clined to help the Turks, though they are still nominally neutral. On the whole, there appears to be very little change in the position of the armies on both battle fronts, though the latest news is that the left wing of the Russian army in the Carpathians is advancing, and that many prisoners are being daily taken. The latest new* is of a desperate attack by the Germans In close formation, which waB repulsed with great slaughter, and 11,000 prisoners were taken

WAR NEWS. GERMAN REPULSE [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 12 February 1915

GKUHAN REPULSE Tiie Kaiser shows no Jack of persistence in hia efforts to break through to (Jal via. One of the most desperate attempts of the Germans was the battle of La Bassee, fought under the personal supervision of the Kaiser. The tactics of the Germans were to draw the Allies towards Festubert, while two of their infantry regiments made a turning movement along the La Bassee Bethune road. Unfortunately for the Kaiser and his generals, the Allies be came aware of their plan, and when the German infantry advanced in close formation they were received I with a murderous fire. Caught ! between the English artillery on their front and the French artillery on their flank, they were literally mown down. I The enemy vainly renewed the attack five times, seeking to break through the Allies' lines. They managed once to reach the Givenchy church, where a small force encountered the fire of the British from the windows of the houses, many being wounded and the remainder surrendering. Dea...

— — The Valuable Eucalyptus Tr*o. I Speaking of the growth of the Indus try of extracting the various alkaloids and resins from the eucalyptus tree, a recent number of the London Globe Kays : Elaborate experiments have been made in Rome by .Senator Count Lugi Torrelli, and they deserve careful atten tion at the hancls of wholesale manu facturing druggists. A number of tin pannikins were filled with pure spring wafer and various leaves, such as oak, orange, lemon and grass, immersed in them ; also eucalyptus leaves and bark.

Corn as Fuel. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 12 February 1915

Corn ao Fuol, Some people seem to be horrified -when they hear of com being used for fuel. Now, if corn is cheaper than coal, what " posssble objection can there be to using it fv»r fuel? A Kansas farmer cau get thirteen cents for a bushel of corn. Let ms sec, that is $3.70 for a ton. To get that, lie may have to haul his corn six or eight miles to market. If he buys coal he will pay from $4 to $5 a ton, and haul it the six or eight miles back home. The mat ter simply comes down to the ques tion of how he can get the most effective fuel for a dollar. You could hardly ex* pcct a farmer to pay a bonuB in order that he might burn coal if he could get the heat some, other way.'' Corn at $3.70 a ton is cheaper fuel than coal at $5 a ton, and, besides,- it has in its i'avor the fact that the farmer has the corn at home. There is no more reason for a sentiment tal objection to burning corn than there is to burning wood.—[Chicago Tribune. BASIL? I Count Von Ennione—Your enormously wealthy A...

Wholesome Vegetables. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 12 February 1915

Wholesome Vegetables. The following information may bo useful to some, it not new to many: Spinach has a direct effect upon the kidneys: The common dandelion, used as greens, is excellent for the same trouble. Asparagus purges the blood. Celery acts admirably upon the nervous system, and is a cure for rheumatism and neural gia. Tomatoes act upon the liter. Beets and turnips are excellent appe tizers. Lettuce and cucumbers are cooling in their effects upon the system. Onions, garlic, leeks, olives, and shal ots, all of which are similar, possess medi cinal virtues of a marked character, stimulating the circulatory system and the consequent increase of the saliva and the gastric juice, promoting diges tion. Red onions are an excellent diuretic 5 and the white ones are recommended to be eaten raw as a remedy for insom nia. They are a tonic and nutritious. A soup made from onions is regarded by the French as an excellent restorative ia debility of the digestive organs.
