AN ARTFUL MAID. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 15 May 1914
AN ARTFUL MAID. "If you fondly loved me, darling," In her ear lie whispered low; "Why unto my first proposal, ■ Did you sadden me with 'No?'" "Well," replied the happy maiden, In between a bill and coo, "I'm afraid i did it merely, Just to see what you would do." "But," her lover fond protested, In a tone approaching pain, "What if I had rushed off wildly, Never coming back again?" "That," she cried, "could not have happened, Well I knew what was in store, As I took a wee precaution Darling, I—I locked the door!" The thing that doesn't cost any thing has a cute way of figuring in the expenses account. A woman is so used to pinning things that she can't understand why a man should make so much fuss about a missing button.

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 15 May 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. _ "When boiling potatoes, add just a little sugar, as well as salt. They are far more floury than i£ only salt is added. The white of a raw egg applied to a burn or scald will prevent inflam mation, be soothing and cooling, and relieve the stinging pain. When a fisli-kettlfe is not available for boiling the fish, place an old plate at the bottom of the saucepan and tie the fish in a piece of muslin. To test mussels, add an onion when cooking them. Should the onion turn black, the mussels should not be eat en, as it is a sign that they are not good. If your oven will not brown your pastry as well as you would like, put the cakes or tarts on the upper tray, and throw a little sugar on the floor of the oven. When you suspect worms at the roots of your plants, place a few un used matches, heads downwards, hi the pots. The sulphur will kill the worms and the plants will be quite healthy again. To prevent the juice of pies from running over spread a thin rim of but ter a...
