A CHAMPION BAG SEWER. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 25 June 1914
A CHAMPION BAG SEWER. A couple o£ years ago Councillor Darley, 01 Georgetown, Soulti Aus tralia, created a record by topping up and sewing 32V bags of wheat m one uay. .Last season, however, a young larmer, scarcely in his teens, Mr. Gor don JJunstord, o£ Kecliiill, easily eclips ed this record by completing -12a bags .in one day's work. t_m December J.O, Air. Darley made another eliorl to' secure first honors, ana succeeded by sewing 44U bags in a day's wort. Jbivery one of the bags was entirely new, ana purchased tnis season. An average ol J.7 sutches a oag was maue, or approximately TbuU altogetu er. Ail the bags wers well filled. Dur ing a spurt Mr. Darley, who had pre viously achieved a reputation for ce lerity In this department, was sewing at the rate of 4U bags per hour. The day's work was completed at 6.45 p.m., and time occupied over two lunches and dinner has to be deduct ed from the time available for work.
FROZEN MEAT INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 25 June 1914
FROZEN MEAT INDUSTRY. The frozen meat industry, from one year to another, has been getting bet ter, and now it can .truthfully be said that the prospects never looked brighter. This is in spite of the in crease in sheep values and a general disorganisation of trade through in dustrial differences. That the trade in frozen meat will go on improving is pretty certain, for the reason that other markets besides London are awakening to the fact that Australian frozen meat is of the quality to build up and maintain trade. America, by reason of her new tariff should, in the near future, be a very valuable ad junct to the London market. Perhaps one reason for the buoyancy of the market and the promising expansion of trade is the increasing application of frozen meat both in England and on the Continent. As regards the latter market, however, a doubt exists as to the probable duration of profitable markets, for the reason that vested agrarian interests are sure to active ly engage in blockin...
Foiled Again. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 25 June 1914
Foiled Again. Papa Bending keeps a pretty sharp eye on his daughter Mary, and many a would-be lover has taken a walk for a few minutes' conversation with the hard-hearted parent. "You seem like a nice young man, and perhaps you are in love with Mary?" "Yes, I am," was the honest reply. "Haven't said anything to her yet, have you?" continued Papa Bending. "Well, no; but I think she recipro cates my affection." "Does, eh? Well, let me tell you1 something. Her mother died a luna-! tic, and there's no doubt that Mary has inherited her insanity." "I'm willing to take the chances," replied the lover. ! "Yes; but, you see, Mary has a terrible temper. She has twice drawn a knile on me with intent to commit murder.".:, - "I'm used to that—got a sister just like her," was the answer. "And you should know that I have sworn a solemn oath not to give fiu rj a penny o£ my property," con tinued the father. "Well, I'd father start poor and build up. There's more romance in it, Mr. Bending," continu...
KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 25 June 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. To relieve toothache, rub baking soda round the tooth and rinse the mouth with hot water. To polish a black marble clock rub over with olive oil and finish with a clean chamois leather. Varnished paper on walls should be cleaned with a llannel dipped in weak tea and polished with a dry cloth. When,baking small cakes or buns, flour the tins instead of greasing them. The cakes will not stick to the tins, and will bake quite as well. , A simple, effective glue that is narmless, colorless, and odorless can be made by adding ordinary tapioca to water and boiling. When plates and dishes have to be warmed in the oven, if a newspaper is placed underneath, it will break the heat and prevent the plates from cracking. Frost-bitten vegetables should be soaked In cold water for one hour be fore boiling. A piece of saltpetre should be added to the water in which they are cooked. Where screws are driven into soft wood and subjected to considerable strain, they are very likely to ...
LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 25 June 1914
LADIES' LETTER. From "Irene" in Melbourne. We are in the throes of the ball season now. Night after night the big halls in the city or one or other of the suburbs are full of happy dancers, - and the season, so far, is proving immensely enjoyable. The civic ball at St. Kilda is always one of the events of the year, anil that held last week was no exception, 'i'heyjiad a glorious color scheme for the decorations, and with nigh on a thousand of our elite, with the women folk in their most elaborate and ex pensive frocks, it was a fairy sight for wondering eyes to linger on. Hebrew representation in St. Kilda is a strong one, and as usual there were many comely Jewesses among the guests. Hawthorn also had a mbst successful function, and likewise Prah ran. None of the new dances were included at the mayoral functions, but they have been much in evidence at other public and semi-private gather ings. The old South Yarra Skating Rink is taking on another lease of life under the high-soundi...

WITH VILLA IN MEXICO. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 25 June 1914
WITH VILLA IN MEXICO, j "The army," explains John Reid, j writing from Juarez, Mexico, "about' 200 horsemen and 500 infantry, were ' drawn up in a great hollow square two rankB deep, completely surround ing that immense plaza in front of the race track. They were in all stages of attire, of course, but much more uniform than the federals at Ojouaga.' About two-thirds of them had blue denim suits (overall stuff), and the rest more or less khaki. But j every Boldier had a different bright colored handkerchief around his neck, land a different colored serape strap ped " on his. saddle—all colors, vivid and faded, and mottled like leopard skins. Their faces were • STRONGLY INDIAN. for the most part, very dark—there were small boys not 14 years old, 1 should guess, too— but their riding boots were magnificently varied, some reaching to the hip, and ornamented down the sides with buckles like sil ver dollars. They rollicked around like kids, stealing rides on street cars, making football ...

LEGACY OF ..OLD HORSES. A legacy o£ 12,800, to be devoted to the establishment of an asylum for old horses, has been bequeathed to the municipality of Vienna toy Herr Franz Bizony, who recently died at MiBkolez.

He frequently remarked to his servant that they were far prefer' able as friends to mien and women.
MAKES BODY TRANSPARENT. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 25 June 1914
MAKES BODY TRANSPARENT. A new method o£ giving medical students instructions which, it is said, will largely obviate the necessity of dissection, >will shortly be put into practice at the. Hahnemann Medical College, Philadelphia. Physicians and surgeons connected with the depart ment of anatomy are now perfecting the process, which originates through the recent discovery by a German scientist of a fluid 'by the use of which the human body can be rendered transparent. The fluid, which is composed of sev eral oils, turns the flesh into a sort of transparent jelly when injected, en abling the student to study the veins, muscles and bones far better, it is as serted, than if they resorted to the" dissecting .inife.-* it" in said to be one of the most 'valuable discoveries in medical science 'of late years.
WOULD YOU BE POPULAR? On this subject the following hints, which are, of course, sarcastic, are worth attention:— [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 25 June 1914
WOULD YOU BE POPULAR? On this subject the following hints, which are, cf course, sarcastic, are worth attention: — -Always..talk about .yourself. It shows individuality and a high de gree of self-respect. Talk frequently. People may .lose valuable ideas by your silence; be sides, it is wicked to waste time by listening to the idle chatter of other folk. When you are hearing a story you have heard 'before, do not fail to inter rupt and tell the narrator that he is relating something as old as the hills. It saves valuable time, and will pre vent him from feeling foolishly vain of his powers. Always make as much litter as you can. It may provide employment for those who mig" t otherwise suffer from listlessness and indolence. Never speak ill of your friends. A much greater effect may be produced if you sigh and shake your head when their names are mentioned. The list eners will then understand that their shortcomings are too serious to be dealt with in mere speech. If you are not unive...
DISEASE IN AMBUSH. GERMS ROUTED FROM THE LAUNDRY. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 25 June 1914
DISEASE IN AMBUSH.-. GERMS ROUTED FROM THE LAUNDRY. It is only diseases that are infectious that can lie in ambush, ready to launch death amongst the inmates of a home, and when we search the home for the readiest place of ambush we find it in the laundry. This is a statement of fact easily provable: the-laundry claims and cleanses every week the clothes we wear, our bed, table, kitchen, and bath linen, handker chiefs, towels and curtains. Nothing absorbs and carries the germs or seeds of disease so readily as these ; to ambush the ambushing disease germ therefore we must begin in the laundry. Next as to the method : mere cleansing is not enough,* for some disease germs may laugh at boiling water, and may even' breed in commoner sorts of soapsuds. The only way to deal with the disease germ is to kill it, because its life is its power to infect, and only when dead is it harmless: so we must not only begin with the laundry, but must find a laundry soap which is also a strong disinfect...

FOE THE LIVER. People who sutler from liver dis orders will find the following letters very interesting :— From Mrs. Ellen Waters, Forest Range, South Australia. "Twenty years ago X was very ill. I could not keep my food down, not even a drink of water. X was bad like this for nearly three months. The doctor made me wean my child, as ho said that I had abscesses on my liver and that I would have to have them cut out. I was in the hospital at the time. The doctor told me to take my baby- home and come back again. I had about 18 miles to travel by coach, and somo kind woman in the coach told me of Warner's Safe Cure. - She asked mo! to try it before I went back to the hospital. I did so.

"Somo time ago I was attacked with a pain under my shoulder blades, extending thence to the back of my neck a...
