THE DAIRY PROPERLY MATURING CHEESE. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 9 October 1914
THE DAIRY + PROPERLY MATURING CHEESE. For several weeks Cheddar cheest is practically tasteless ; at two mopihs it is beginning to develop its nutty flavour, and a month later this is distinct encrugh to meet the tastes of many consumers. The ren-' net, however, having had a better chance than would be possible with higher p. .^portions of retained whey, the cheess is proportionately mors digestible ; and, so far as the con sumer's advantage is concerned, he may use it then without either the effects of indigestibilits on the one hand., or of pungency of flavour 0n the other. For those who desire a stronger flavour, it will have to be kept two months more or upwards ; and if made on correct lines and as perfectly as it may be from sonnd milk, it will be at its best from eighteen months to two years old. if such long keeping is sought, it should be stored, after four months' age, in a temperature never exceed ing 62 deg. Fahr. nor falling below 55 deg. Fahr., with the humidity 0f the...
CHAPTER III. DEEPER INTO THE TOILS. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 9 October 1914
I CHAPTER in. DEEPER INTO THE TOILS. Dugdale had not changed his mind an iota. A dozen things-the exqui site white hands on which valuable rings glowed, the delicate features, the style of her whole attire-these and other evidences told him plainly this strange beauty belonged to the select upper circle of Russia, even that which is very near to the throne itself. The mystery of it all piqued him. He felt somehow as though he had a personal interest in her matters that her enemies were also his foes ; in fact, that she was being shame i fully treated by the powers that were j in control of such affairs as banish j ment. i This was pretty quick work, and ; almost took his breath away when l be came to reflect upon its nature. I He had prayed for a chance to feel . himself aroused from the "doldrums" | and behold, the opportunity had ap J peared with a vengeance. Here he was i bowling along the mountain road, heading for the next village or town, ; and seated beside the most fascina t...
CHAPTER II. DUGDALE FORGHTS THE BLUHS. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 9 October 1914
GHAFTEJR II. DUQDALE3 FORGHTS THE BLUHS. Of course, the wise reader has anti cipated just this thing, but Dugdale had not been granted the same privi lege and hints', so that ho was fairly staggered. It breathed of romance on the spot -and he had just been serioualy con sidering the wisdom of deserting the army of bachelors, too. He had seen some pretty faces in hia day, this young-old disciplo of single blessedness, but never one that had struck him as quite so arch and charming as the countenance upon ?which he now gazed so like a'boor. And somehow he imagined he saw what might bo a frown give way to a look of genuine pleasure. She ap peared pleased to find that the tram pling horses bad brought him to the scene and not others-perhaps the mounted soldiers who waited there .on the hillsido above. Dugdale pulled himself together. He made no pretence of being a ladies' man, though always at home in society. "Pardon me, madam, you are in trouble. My surprise made me rude. Allow mo to ...

(ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.) O R, THE WINNSftG OF ISOLDE. Y iy St. Georg« Rathborne, Author o/ "Omar Kassam," etc. CHAPTER I. THE TRAVELLER in THE TALEGA A novice might not have found much pleasure about the long jour ney in a Russian telega drawn by two horses under the control' of a daring Don Cossack driver-a journey that had carried Owen Dugdale, a journalist, artist, and idler, over the vast steppes, with their feathery grasses, and now brought him amid the wild gorges of the southern moun tain border of the White Czar's vast dominions. Dugdale had enough Irish blood in ?his veins to love more or less ex citement, and his main purpose in visiting this domain, upon which a subject of the good Queen had sel dom set eyes, was to discover new objects of interest for his brush and pen, as well as to amuse himself. A man with plenty of money and an artistic taste is very apt to grow weary of such ordinary things as lie ? in the beaten track ; and accordingI\ Owen had mapped out a month's j...

Doctor and Tiger. ? ? ? When it became known that the best shot in the company WAS go ing into the jungle to compass the death of a terrible tiger, the sur geon-major of the regiment, an en thusiastic curio-collector, at once buttonholed 'him. "Beipcmber, Atkins," said he, "I bespeak ' the skin at your own price." ''All right, sir," said Atkins. .The surgeon-major was netting butterflies on the outskirts of the jungle that evening when he saw Atkins, running .towards him. "Shot him ?" shouted the surgeon major. - "Yes, sir !" breathlessly replied the flying Nimrod. ''How much for the skin?" "Five quid, sir !" . The doctor gave Atkins the money. "Where's the skin ?" he cried. "Behind you, sir !" came the re ceding answer. The doctor looked, and saw the skin, with the tiger in it, coming open-mouthed and bleeding from a scratch where Atkins had "shot " it. The doctor didn't get the tiger's skin, but the tiger nearly got the doctor's. An enormous Russian biplane has taken up 16 passeng...
Hanged for Signing Four Names. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 9 October 1914
Hanged for Signing Four Names. People have not always been allow ed the pleasure of having as many names as they wish. Four hun dred years ago not even a middle name was allowed in England. It was illegal. The old English law was definite and admitted of no infraction of its ruling. ' The only exception made to this regulation was in the case of per sons of Royal rank. If they wish ed, they could boast a middle name, but woe to the person of ordinary rank who was sufficiently unwise, or obstinate to insist on having more than two appellations. For the lirst offence he would likely be tied to a whipping-post and severely lashed. For a second of fence he would endure.; some more lasting punishment, perhaps the re moval of his. thumbs or his ears, and if he persisted in his stubborn ness he would be hanged. ? There is a case on record of a man v who insisted on signing four names every time he wrote his sig nature.; He passed through all the legal stages of punishment until he was fina...
A NEW CARD GAME. "WOMEN ARE TRUMPS." [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 9 October 1914
A NEW CARD GAME. A WOMEN ARE TRUMPS." ? The last word in card games is "Women Are Trumps" (says the .New \ ork World). Have you tried it ? No ? Well, you will find it simple, absorbing, entertain ing, instructive. It is played with fifty-two cards, the same number as in the ordinary pack, but there all similitude ceases. Spades, hearts, clubs, and dia monds are done away with; into the discord with them go 1 kings, knaves, and aces. Only the queens are left, and of these are a plenty, for this is a suffrage game intended to advance the cause of votes for women; likewise the ex chequer of the same-price, one dol lar per pack. And who wants kings, to say no thing of idle knaves, with ' their well-known pernicious habit of stealing from queens, in a strictly, feminine pack. ---Mrs. J ohn King V an Renssela er has mothered the new game ; Phila delphia is its birthplace. The lady is one of the foremost social leaders of the Quaker City ; also an ardent exponent , , of suffragism. Inciden...
The Best Letters. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 9 October 1914
The Best Letters. ? A letter that shall "be worth keep ing for other than purely practical or sentimental reasons take? time and that rarest of all kinds Of time, leisure. It needs some mind and at least a fraction of a heart. And, above'all. two real human be ings, and two alone, are essential. For the correspondence that anybody may read is worth nobody's trouble. The best letters, therefore, are those between two friends (friends, of course, who may alfo be brothers or mother and son), and probably the best of the best are those between friends of a different sex. That difference is a kind of leaven. It is like a flicker of summer lightning in the quiet night. It adds the salt of unconscious antagonism, the sweetness of a baffling sympathy. It is a thing of quite extraordinary potentialities. And so long as love nods his small head over . his arrows, and, for dreaming, for bears to shoot, all is Veil. * For love-letters are truly not let ters at all but lyrics in prose, or nonsen...
The German Way. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 9 October 1914
The German Way. It is an astonishing fact that a blind man may drive a motor-car in the Ujiited Kingdom. Anyone 'Who" lias a driving licence, which can be obtained on the payment of 5s. without any test of qualifica tion, is entitled to drive a car whe ther he is able to do so or not. The German method is in strong contrast to that of Britain. If a German wishes to drive a motor car he must first take out a one month's tuition licence, which per mits him to learn to drive. At the end of the month he is taken into the heart of a large city, and with an official at his side is made to drive in and out of the traffic. One little slip, a slight hesitation in slowing up, and back lie is put for another month' of tuition. There are many cases in which even three months' tuition is insisted on, and there are others in which licenses are, refused altogether. The result of this is that the accident per-j centage in Berlin is only half that j London. " Manchester Evening News.
A Wind-made Mountain. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 9 October 1914
A Wind-made Mountain. -? Earthquakes and volcanoes some times in a few seconds work havoc with the topography of a country, but the wind works more slowly in making changes on the face of the earth. It has been on one job at Cape Henry, Va., for unknown centuries, and while it has accom plished much, it does not seem to consider its work there completed, and promises to stick to it for hun dreds of .years longer, unless it chan ges its favourite routes of travel or the ocean currents theirs, -or the hand of man intervenes. The work the wind has been doing at Cape Henry and of which it never tires, from the beach, perhaps a hundredth part of an inch a day, a small mountain of sand. As the prevail ing winds at the Cape ore north east, south-westward lies the course of this sand mountain. In its path is a dense . forest of sypress, pine, and beach trees, sheltering a jungle of undergrowth, in which make their home little . black bears, an occa sional deer, foxes, - raccoons:, in numera...

How 5 was Saved. V ; (By One of the Survivors of the Empress of Ireland.) Mr. C. R. Clark, the sales mana ger for one of the best-known motor car firms in London, was one of the few survivors from the/ivreck of- the ill-fated Empress of Ireland..

ELECTRIC CHARWOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 9 October 1914
;.ECTRIC CHARWOMAN. Machinery has 'now invaded the ! field of the charwoman, for an eiec I trie scrubbing machine has 'just come into use. It is a little push cart, supplied with electric power through a cable connected with a lamp socket. The operator simply pushes it over the marble floor and controls its operations by levers on the cart handle. A set of brushes revolve on the floor, while a little stream of water trickles down through them from a tank. Powdered soap is fed to the water in easily-regulated amounts. As the cart is pushed ahead the dirty water is swept, up to a pipe and a little pump sucks it up from the floor.
