TO AVOID BAGGY KNEES. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 24 November 1916

TO AVOID BAGGY KNEES. To lengthen the life of a pair of trousers, and to keep them in good shape all the time, proceed in this way. When you take off the trousers, put the two legs together and hang up the trousers, feet uppermost, by one of the many "trouser hangers" now to be obtained from any tailor. Let them remain in that position for at least a night-longer if possible. The weight of the top part of the trousers will stretch the legs slightly and take out the undesirable creases. Then put the trousers into a press. You need not keep them there for more than a few hours, and you don't help matters if you screw up the press for all you are worth. MM

"Alone on a Wide, Wide Sea." [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 24 November 1916

"Alone on a Wide, Wide Sea." A small but select group of journal ists had been invited to come aboard for the new liner's maiden trip, and a merry party sat down to dine in the saloon just as they were leaving port. After crossing the bar a nasty, choppy sea made itself unpleasantly felt. The captain, seated at the head of the table, beamed upon the assembled company as the soup was circulated. "Well," he observed jovially, "I hope that all you twenty-five gentlemen will have a very pleasant trip, and that this little gathering of-er twenty-four, will be much benefited by tho voyage. I look round upon these - ahem - twenty-two smiling faces as a father upon his family, and I assure you I deeply feel my respon sibility for the safety of all you seventeen. I hope that all fourteen of you will join me In drinking prosper ity to our owners.

The Open Column. (.We do not necessarily identify ourselves with opinions expressed in these columns.] HONOR ROLL AT TAWONGA. TO THE EDITOR SIR,-" Shall war's polluted banner ne'er be furled?" Whnt of those indomitable volunteer heroes of Australia who fought at Gallipoli-those of them more es pecially who are dead and fill soldiers' sepulchres upon an alien soil ? Would it be justice to them to have their sacred names raced upon an honor roll along side beings who will, quite likely, yet be forced into the fight, even though the Referendum h&s failed? Uudoubtedly not. Doesn't the same argument apply to those patriots of Tawonga who have already offered themselves to wade through slaughter, somewhere in France, for a nation's cause ? Then, why should I be a target forsuch unjust and insulting remarks, since I upheld these rights at a meeting held in Tawonga Hall regarding an honor roll for the local State school ? Perhaps some of the people are in doubt as to the meaning of ...

IMPROVEMENTS IN ORIENTAL LANDS NOTED BY VISITOR. Dr. Francis E. Clark, President of World's Christian Endeavor Union, Tells What He Saw. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 24 November 1916

IMPROVEMENTS IN ORIENTAL LANDS NOTED BY VISITOR. I | Dr. Francis E. Clark, President of World's Christian Endeavor Union, Tells What He Saw. Vast Improvements in.China, Korea and Japan since his last visit to the Orient 16 years ago are noted by Dr. Francis E. Clark, president of the World's Christian Endeavor Union, who recently spoke here, reviewing the trip to those countries from which he has just returned. When Dr. Clark went to Kqrea years ago there was scarcely a mile of railway in all that country; now it Is traversed by well-equipped tracks, while automobile roads have been built or are projected, he says, throughout the whole peninsula. De nuded hillsides are re-forested with more than 50,000,000 pine trees. Prim ary and secondary schools and agri cultural colleges have been establish ed all over Korea, and the country has entered upon a career of prosperity such as it has never known, at least for half a millennium. The mission aries, who at first anticipated that un due ...

SEA SALT. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 24 November 1916

SEA SALT. "Real Salt" has been used for a variety o£ purposes. It is the raw material in soda manufacture, and the basis of the glaze on our pots and pans. But Professor Joly, of Dublin, used salt in calculating the ago of the world. His method had the simplic ity of genius. He first computed the amount of salt in the sea, and found the quantity to be enough to replace the whole of the continent of Europe. Now, all this salt was brought to the sea by rivers, so his next computation was the amount of salt transported an nually from land to ocean. A little sum in long division gave him a quo tient of between 90,000,000 and 100,000,000. That was the age of .Mother Earth, who had deceived Lord Kelvin into thinking her a maiden of from 20,000,000 to 25,000,000 years.

On to Berlin. WEDNESDAY EVENING NEXT. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 24 November 1916

On to Berlin. WEDNESDAY EVENING NEXT. WE have so often mentioned that the Bright Comedy Club will stage the above military drama in aid of the local Patriotic funds on Wednesday evening next that it really appears unnecessary to remind our readers of the date and merit of the performance. Still a short outline of the production may be in teresting. The drama opens at Ports mouth, at the home of an English gentleman named Davenant, who has only learned that tbe 50th regiment, which contains an old frieud of his, has been ordered out to active service. Upon the arrival of this friend an interesting dialogue ensues, which plainly shows the ways of the Hun towards those under whose power they may be temporarily placed, and proving the kind of treachery our men are being subjected to. It may be inentioued that for reasons which are soon explained, the Colonel is not what can be termed an admirer of the fair sex, and is inclined to look upon Paul (Davenant's son) with a degree of suspicio...
