GARDENING LITERATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 27 July 1917

GARDENING LITERATURE. Of the books about gardening there is practically no end, and it ! would be unfair to say that any of | them are absolutely worthless. Some of these manuals are, however, like the curate's egg, only good in parts, and, as unfortunately the people who use such books do not know what parts are unreliable, this is a fatal defect. Messrs. Cassell and Co. Ltd. are, however, on hand with a selec tion of brightly-written gardening books by an expert, Mr. H. H. Thomas, editor of "The Gardener," that should prove of inestimable advantage to amateurs whether they garden for profit or merely pleasure. The Begin ner's Gardening Book (10d. post free) is a compendium of information re specting how to set out a garden, how to cultivate it whether for flowers, vegetables or fruits, tliat places the amateur gardener in a position to master the many difficulties that bo set well-meaning ignorance. A large work by the same author, "Gardening, a Complete Guide," also from Cassell'...

S AlleD, the m«dical officer, to test his eyesight firtt. instead of the usual examination in which the eyesight te« comeslast. Tho medical officer complied with the request, but wondering why the volunteer kept his hat on, well drawn down 'v«r Ilia eyes, watched him closely. "Can you read the bottom line on that card with the right eye?" queried the medical officer, as he covered the man's left eye. "Yes, sir; APHLZ," came quickly irom the volunteer. "Now try it with the left eye." Again the letters came out glibly. Then the medical officer placed his fingers gently but firmly over the man's loft ey...

Mrs. Banks Going Out. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 27 July 1917

Banks Going Out. Mrs. Banks was just getting ready, to go out while her patient husband waited iu the doorway, watching her complete her toilet. By the extraor dinary contortions of her neck he con cluded that she was trying to.jget a glimpse of the back of her new blouse, aud by the tense lines about her lips he concluded that her mouth was iul'l of pins.

THE COO-EE CONTINGENT. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 27 July 1917

THE COO-EE CONTINGENT. So much war literature -lias been produced by more or less unreliable stay-at-home patriots that the ordin ary reader is chary of tackling books or articles that profess to discribe soldier life at the front. In The Coo-ee Contingent one, however, has a de scription at first hand of. what the author describes as "Bill Jim as fight er, good chum and lover," in a series of sketches that leave no doubt of their absolute genuineness. The au thor with unnecessary modesty con ceals his identity, beyond disclosing the fact that he was an Australian officer trained at Broadmeadows and sailing from Port Melbourne, but the work he has done in an unobtrusive manner will live long after the war is over. With a keen eye for humor and an equally keen sympathy for his com rades of the rank and file, this fine Australian officer depicts the doings and sayings of Bill Jim under various circumstances anil in many scenes with a fidelity and insight that speak volumes lor his cap...

Honors Easy. People who were present smiled at the little passage of arms which took place between two young ladies at a luncheon. One of them, a bride, shaking hands in her characteristi cally cordial way, said to the other: . "I'm so glad to meet you! You have afforded me so very much amusement lately." "Amusement?" said the other. "Oh, yes," went on the bride. "I've been through my husband's desk, and I've read all his old love-letters. IJ found several very affectionate let- j tars from you, and I enjoyed reading j them over so much." ~~ "I'm so glad you enjoyed them," j purred the other. "But do come and ; see me very soon. Here is my card. 1 I have the answers to all those let ters, and you might like to read them ! as -well. Mr. X.'s letters are so much i more affectionate than those I wrote : to him.

The Phoenix Insures CROPS and STACKS against damage by FIRE and Crops against damage by HAIL STONES. No Cause for Alarm.

A Good Argument. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 27 July 1917

A Good Argument. As he dislikes motor-cars, a coun try squire always kept good horses. Recently he bought a handsome mare, and a few days later asked his sroom what he thought of. the new arrival. "She's a fine-looking animal, sir," replied the man, "but I'm afraid she's i bit touchy." "Why do yju think so?" questioned 'he squire. "She doesn't seem to take to no me, sir. She can't bear me to go into lier box to groom her." "Oh, she'll settle down in a few lays," the squire reassured ihim. 'Everything's strange to her, you 'inow. I don't think there's much wrong with her temper." "Nor did I at first, sir," replied the groom. "But, you see, she's kick ed ma out o' that there box twice al ready, and, when you come to think of.lt, that's very convlncin*."

Not the Same Buchanan. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 27 July 1917

Not the Same Buchanan. Lady Buchanan, , wife of our Am bassador in Petrograd, who did good work nursing the wounded there during the revolution, has travelled extensively, and has many stories to tell of her experiences in various parts of the world. One of the most amusing of these relates to a garden-party she attend ed some time ago at Sofia. Sir George Buchanan, who was British Minister there at the time, was prevented from being present owing to pressure of official work, and an American tourist who was amongst the guests, on being present ed to Lady Buchanan, expressed his disappointment at being deprived of the opportunity of meeting him. "I wanted to tell Sir George," he explained, "how highly I esteem his whisky. I can assure you, my dear niadam, I have drunk none other for ten years past."

"Modern Fig-Leaves." BOOTS! [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 27 July 1917

' Modern Fig-Leaves." BOOTS! By Alfred Lester. Boots are undoubtedly useful, but I should hardly describe them as ornamental. They look rather well when perched at unwearable angles on the plate-glass shelves of show windows; but In a homely row in the bedroom, or in the bathroom, or wherever you happen to keep them, they are not at all an inspiring sight. I know, because I wont and had n look at my own modest collection just now with a view to gaining a few in spirations on the subject of footwear. But after a gloomy interval I stole away and shut the door with the un happy conviction that I shall have to take to wearing shoes. There they stood, with their toes turned in and their tongues hanging out, the silliest-looking lot of creatures in the world. Tuoy hadn't an idea between them! And to think that I've carried those boots about with me all over the country, permitting them to share my private joys and sorrows, keeping them carefully in a good state of repair, and securing for...

Sally in the Kitchen. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 27 July 1917

Sally in the Kitchen. The old lady was very zona ot preaching the efiicacy of persever ance. In fact, she rode her hobby horse so much to death that her-ser vant at last got quite tired of her everlasting "Persevere ;- persevere! it is only through perseverance one can accomplish anything in- this, world." Orio day the old lady had visitors, and a large number of delicious ap ple dumplings were served up. These, however, were not all partaken of, sight or nine being sent downstairs again. On the following day the old lady invaded the lower regions, and order id the left-over dumplings to be warmed up for dinner. But, greatly to her consternation, she found they had all gone. "Sally," she cried, ."wherever are the dumplings left from yesterday?" "Eaten 'em, mum," was that la conic lady's reply. "liatsn them! Good heavens! How ilid you manage it?" "Perseverance, mum," came the tart reply.

LOVING TOO LATE. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 27 July 1917

LOVING TOO LATE. The best, the fairest, most beloved Lie where but tombstones tell their name, Forgotten by the hurrying crowd, With none to tell of whence they came. Love may have marked their resting place, By kindly word and tear-stained eye, But lovo itself is dead, and now The slab alone tell where they lie. Through dim millenniums thus we trace, Age after age the story must re peat To-day the loved pass from our side. To-morrow, calls us to their feet. Then what has time whereof to boast? And what has man to call his own? His vigil ends before the night, And darkness finds him all alone. Great Father, teach us how to love, The loved, responsive, by our side To touch with kindly hand while still, The loving and the loved abide. -R. Hare. Cooranbong, N.S.W.
