YET ANOTHER CAT STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 29 January 1914

YET ANOTHER CAT STORY. To the several highly interesting oal stories to which' you iiavo already ac corded the widely extended publicity of your columns, I would like to add another (writes a correspondent to "T.P's. Weekly.") When living in the Midlands, wo had as a household pet, a line tortoise shell cat which had been with us from kittenhood. (Jut of a numerous yield of kittens, not one had resembled its mother, and while they were sum-: manly disposed of, she who had given them birth was retained, and kept, the house and premises clear of vermin. After several years, she' appeared to bo suffering from toothache, evidence of which was forthcoming in a swollen face, always on the same side of too face, and which interfered with her pleasant facial appearance, as I have seen the case with human beings under similar circumstances. When suffer ing from these attacks, by her pitiful look up into our faces she seemed to appeal for the help wo could not af ford, but we assured her of o...

IN A FRIENDLY SORT OF WAY. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 29 January 1914

IN A FRIENDLY SORT OF WAY. When a man ain't got a cent and Lt'i feeling kind o' blue, And the clouds hang dark and heavy and won't Jet the sunshine through, It's a groat thing, 0 my brethren, for a fellow just to lay His hand upon your shoulder in a friendly sort o' way. It makes a man feel curious, it makes the teardrops start, An' you sort o' feels a flutter in the region of the heart; Vou can't look up and meet his eyes, you don't know what to say, When his hand is on your shoulder in a friendly sort o' way. Oh, the world's a curious compound with it.s'hoiiey and its gall, With its cares and bitter crosses, hut a good world after all; An' a good God must have made— leastways that is what I say, When a hand is 011 your shoulder in a friendly sort of way.

Apple Packing. PROPER PICKING .ESSENTIAL FOR EOT PACKING. It freqitentiy requires a - nice judg ment to determine the proper time for picking-apples. If picked too soon the fruit will be'undersized and poorly col ored, thus injuring seriously both its quality and appearance in tho pack age. If allowed to hang on too long, its keeping quality is impaired and danger of loss by high winds is multi plied. No definite rule can be laid down as to. time of picking. When tho fruit, on being twisted ono-half around will.snap cleanly from the spur withou; breaking tho stem, it should be picked. Red .apples are usually picked when they have assumed a normal colour, and yellow apples wlion they have at | tained the proper size and the seeds j become browned. .There are great dil j'Terences; however, between varieties.

THE FATIGUE POINT. Nothing is so beneficial to a man or a woman as to relax every muscle of tho body, to lio or at least to sit with closed eyes for a short tune every day. Many people eannot sleep, many can only sparo a quarter of an hour lor this rest, but if tlieso would make a point of taking just what they can they would soon find a marked difference in their health. A human being can work every day up to the point of fa tigue without feeling any the worse, in lnct it may bo said that hundreds would feci infinitely better if they had. to work to the fatigue point every day of thoir lives. They would not then complain of loss of appetite or inability to sleep. But tneso ill ef fects, it' they arise from want of work, also attack those who habitually pass tiio fatigue poiut. To rest before just getting tired is one of the very best means to prevent a breakdown.

THISTLE DESTRUCTION BILL. The Municipal Association of Victoria has written to the Gordon Shire Coun cil relative to the bill to further amend the Thistle Act now before Parliament, and also forwarded a copy of the Bill. Cr Jones thought the first 8 clauses of the Bill were all right, but the ninth clause was too drastic H ^ moved that the first eight clauses be supported.— 'this Was seconded by Cr Malone. The voting was even—four for the motion, and four against. The president gave his casting vote against the motion ani declared it lost. Gr Esler stated that all the saffron thistles could not be destroyed between Durham Ox and Boort, as the men could not be got to do the work. Cr Malone thought that half a chain in the paddock should be cleared and also on the roads, i hat was a fair thing and the council should make an effort to have this carried out. If individual ratepayers did not cut the thistles the council would have to do it. Cr Jones agreed with Cr Malone, but to cut the ...
