The Two Financlers. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914

The Two Financiers. One day two London financiers who were partners, discovered that an office boy in their employ had been tampering with the petty cash. One of them was so much enraged that he desired to send for the police forthwith, but the other was a calm and just man. He took a more moder- ate and human view of the situation. "Nay, nay, partner," he said, let us always remember that we began in a small way ourselves."

Just the Reverse. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914

Just the Reverse. A kind-hearted and witty clergyman, entering the house of one of his el- ders one morning found the good old man unmercifully whipping one of his sons, a lad about fourteen years old, and he at once began to intercrde for the boy.   The deacon defended himself by saying that "the youth must be early trained in the way he should go. It is best to make an impression when the wax is soft" "Yes," said the pastor, "but that does not hold here for the whacks were not soft." The deacon let the boy go. Art is but an indifferent stepmother to nature's children.   Anatomists, to separate the bones of a skull, sometimes fill it with small beans and place the whole in a basin of water. The beans swell and slow- ly split the skull.

The Optimist. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914

The Optimist. Charles the First, with stately walk, made the journey to the block. As he paced the street along, silence fell upon the throng; from that throng there burst a sigh, for a king was come to die! Charles upon the scaffold stood, in his veins no craven blood; calm, serene, he viewed the crowd, while the headsman said, aloud: "Cheer up, Charlie! Smile and sing! Death's a most delightful thing! I will cure your hacking cough when I chop your headpiece off! Headache, toothache-they're a bore. You will never have them more! Cheer up, Charlie, dance and yell! Here's the axe, and all is well! "I, though but a humble dub, repre- sent the Sunshine Club, and our motto is worth while: 'Do not worry-sing and smile!' "Therefore let us both be gay, as we do our stunt to-day; I to swing the shining axe, you to take a few swift whacks. "Lumpty-doodle, lumpty-ding; do not worry, smile and sing!' -Walt Mason.

MILLIONAIRE TELLS HOW TO BECOME RICH. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914

MILLIONAIRE TELLS HOW TO BECOME RICH. Frederick Weyerhaeuser. of St. Paul (U S.A.), said to be the richest man in the world, gave ten rules on how to get rich:— Make up your mind to work at some- thing really worthy of work, and work hard. The surest way to make money is to save money and use what you save Don't be afraid of long hours or con- stant attention to your work. Work can be made a joy, an econ- omy, a pleasure, if you combine an object worth while with the deter- mined ambition to win. Work, where the interest of the man who works is centred, becomes a source of real gratification, of honest pleasure and accomplishment. Any young man can get rich, can succeed in business. If he saves; if he has a definite and honest purpose and is so filled with the purpose that work ceases to be a hardship and be- comes a privilege. Look at things with optimism in your heart. Go into small business and work to make it into a big one

A NEW ANAESTHETIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914

A NEW ANAESTHETIC. There has recently been discovered a new anaesthetic, which prevents pain after an operation. It consists of a solution of quinine and urea hy- drochloride, and before the surgeon begins to operate it is injected around the affected region. The discoverer says that after the patient has recov- ered from the effects of the general anaesthetic the solution gives entire freedom from pain, and that it pro- motes rapid healing. He believes that it will prove valuable in accident cases, since it will stop the pain in crushed and fractured limbs, and will frequently avert fatal shocks. Injec- tion of the new compound is not fol- lowed by intense pain, such as the ad- ministration of cocaine often causes. If, after thorough tests, the new an- aesthetic proves to be effective and safe, it will be of great benefit to mankind. Everything comes to him who waits, but hustle well while you are wait- ing.   Next to getting the man she wants, a woman enjoys getting t...

THE TIME FOR CHEESE MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914

THE TIME FOR CHEESE MAKING. The best cheese is made in the summer, when the cows are feeding on good pastures, but when made under scientific conditions in con- junction with judicious application of starter, it is possible to make good cheese at all times. An important point in the making of cheese is to vary the process of manufacture slightly according to the time of the year and the quality of the milk.

HOW TO PACK FLOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914

HOW TO PACK FLOWERS. For packing shallow boxes should be used, as the flowers will travel much better if placed in single lay- ers. The boxes should be just long enough to comfortably accommodate the flowers, and should be lined with some soft non-absorbent material. Wood wool is the best material to use, but fresh moss will also answer the purpose. Over this place a layer of white tissue paper and then lay the flowers in position, packing them as closely as possible. Cover with another layer of tissue paper and fill in if necessary with a little more packing material till when the lid is placed in position the contents of the box are quite firm and unable to shift.

OBITUARY. MR J. NELSON JONES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914

MR J. NELSON JONES. An old and esteemed resident of Ara-   rat passed away yesterday afternoon in the person of Mr J. Nelson Jones. For some time past the deceased gentleman, who had reached the extreme age of 89 years, had been steadily failing, though his marvellous vitality encouraged the hopes of his immediate friends. For some days past symptoms of a grave character made their appearance, and his strength failing, he passed away about midday. Mr J. Nelson Jones was born in London in 1825, and he came out to Australia when 23 years of age, in 1848, in a barque of 500 tons, fitted up for emigrants. He landed in Alelaide, but soon came round to Mel- bourne, and in the early days he was connected with the brewing trade, and at the Melbourne agricultural show in 1864, his exhibit carried off first prize. He afterwards settled in Bendi- go, and was connected with many for- ward movements and business enter- prises, establishing breweries and flour mills, and being associ...

HOW TO NEUTRALISE DANGEROUS STOMACH ACIDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 13 January 1914

HOW TO NEUTRALISE DANGER OUS STOMACH ACIDS. Few people besides physicians realise the importance of keeping the food con tents of the stomach free from acid fer mentation. Healthy normal digestion cannot take place while the" delicate lining of the stomach.is being.inflamen and distended- by acid and wind-the results of fermenting food in the stom Tch. To secure perfect digestion, fer mentation must be stopped or prevent ed, and the acid.neutralised. For this purpose physicians usually recommend getting a little bisurated magnesia from the chemist and taking half a teaspoon. ful in a little hot or cold water Immedi ately.after: eating. They recommend bisurated magnesia because it is plea. sant to take, has no.disagreeable after effects, and instantly stops fermenta. tion, neutralises the acid and maked the sour acid food bland, sweet and iasily digested. The regular use of bisurated ma;:. neia--be sure you get the bisurated, as other. kinds of magnesia are of little tvalue--is ani ....

CYCLING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 13 January 1914

CYCLING NOTES. gold speed men will be interested to learn of sonme a crack French the. cycles used by the crack -rn road riders in the important French long distance road contests. One is a brake that acts on tlhe side of the rim and epringse euite clear w heu shl lever is released thus allowing the wheel to be quickly removed without touching the brake fittings But the chief point of interest is the detachable back wheel-a marvel of simplicity and ingenuity. The hub spindle is hol low, but a solid spindle runs through it, and this can be withdrawni in a few seconds by unscrewing with the fingers, no other tool being required. T'e wheel is then free to drop out of tlhe frane, the chain being simply lifted off the hub ring. On some road racing machines chain wheels are provided at each side of the hub, so that the gear can be changed, or a free wheel substituted for a fixed, by merely re versing the back wheel. This is how the French racing men manage their gear changes in the big an...
