BUSINESS TRAINING FOR GIRLS. PARENTS' NEGLECT. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 1 January 1914
BUSINESS TRAIINING FO GIRLS. PARENTS' NEGLECT. Why are so many women utterly help less in money matters as soon as the guid ing hand of a husband or father is with drawn by death? Some time ago a London judee in the City Court commented on the hap hlazard way in which widows entered into business, and the rashness with which they conducted their financial affairs, a course which usually resulted in a total loss of all their money. I wish," lie re marked, "that there was not so much go ing into business." It is not at all likely that the judge intended his words to act as a check on the enterprising woman with plenty of common sense and a mind trained to grapple with the difficulties involved in starting a commercial enter prise. 'Ihe reason for this, as well as the reply to the uiestion asked above, is to be found in the fact that few. if any, parents seem \,_..to .think it necessary to Instil into the .^Ss ad.apghlters- a knowledge of ?a reoponsbillsty. -I. israther- .discnlt to ac...

LEMON BARLEY WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 1 January 1914
LEMION BARLEY WA'.j R. This is both refreshing and nourish-. ing. Ingredients: 2 large tablespoon fuls-of pearl barley, 1 lemon, 1 pint of boiling water, 3 or 4 lumps of sti gar. Put the barley in a saucepan, with enough water to cover it. Bring it to boiling point, let it boil for five minutes, then strain the water off and throwi it away. This "blanching," as it is called, removes the bitter flavour of the barley, and improves the colour. Pat the barley in a jug with the thinly pared rind and strained juice of the lemon, and the sugar, pour on the pint of boiling water. Cover the jug and leave it until cold, then strain off the liquid, and it is ready. If. at any tiin, barley-water is required to be given with milk, make it in exactly tie same way, but leave out tle lemoii. Ccience.

It is satisfactory to know that both Mr. G. M. Prendergast and Mr. W. A. Watt the former during his brief ueriod of office na Ohief Secretary in the short-lived Elms lie Ministry, and the latter as Premier once again-deprecate the tise by the de. tectives of this State of what is known as the "third degree," in connection with ac cused. persons, and much more so in the case of those under suspicion merely. This method of inquisitorial "pumping" of persons is simply a revival under another form of what was known in the Middle Ages as putting a person to the question, save that, whereas in those remote times the torture was of a physical character, it is, under tile "third degree" methods, of a mental one. It is rather strange that this process should be of American origin, but, it 'would seem that some peculiar phases of tile administration of the crim inal law are to be found in that country, ranging from one extreme to the other, lan" that, while on thle one hand it is executed for...
