DROWNED IN RIVER RESCUE. MISSED BY INCHES. In full view of a number of people an elderly man was drowned in tho river Yarra shortly before 2 o'clock on January 1. Mr M. Cohen, an electrical engineer, of Prince's Walk, became suspicious when the man told him that he was going for a swim, and gave him 1/6 to mind for him. The man then walked along the north bank of the river, and when about 70 or 80 yards from Prince's Bridge, took off his boots, socks, and ; coat. Mr Cohen beckoned to a con- j stable, but the man had already entered the water, and had commenced swim ming strongly, though partly dressed, towards the south side of the river. The constable and Mr Joseph Burnett, care taker for Messrs Edwards and Son, boat builders, took a rowing boat, and j came up with the man half way across j the river. Burnett stretched cut his ! hand to seize the man, who suddenly disappeared, leaving his hat in Bur nett's grasp. The man did not rise again.

DAIRY PRODUCE: [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

dairy produce: Supplies of butter are steadily decreasing; but it te difficult to judge exactly in tlie holi days. The demand is mainly for choicest, but most of the butter is heated, the cream having been affected before churning. Choice butter is selling at ll^d, other good to prime at lid to IT&d, and heated and poor cream lots down to 9%d. Dairy butters are selling from -8d to lOd, according to condition, me dium to good fetching 8d to 9d, special in first class - condition occasionally 9y2d, and private factory to lOd. In other lines of dairy produce a holiday tone has prevailed. New cheese is practically nominal, trade being of small volume. A good deal of trouble is .being experienced in regard to the quality of the eggs now arriving. The demand is practically limited to best lots, which are slightly higher than last week. „ Trade in hams and bacon is quieter after Christmas, but choice qualities are still having fair business. Poultry was well supplied, and prime lot...

HISTORIC PARISH CITY CLERIC RETIRES. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

H3STGRI0 PARISH — Q CITY CLERIC RETIRES. With the retirement of-the Rev. Cad waladr P. Thomas, of St. John's Church of England, a notable ministry closes. . ■ For 15 years Mr Thomas has "been a central figure in the church life of Melbourne, though he has labored Quietly in his parish and has never in any way sought the glare of publicity. But, apart from actual boundaries, his parish is as wide as the metropolitan area itself, as. St. John's congregation flocks from all parts. It is no secret that many who wor ship at St. John's have gone there be cause they felt dissatisfied with their suburban churches. Either the form of worship was too high or too low, and they found in St. John's a happy medium, with a surpliced choir and an intoned service. To these wanderers. Mr Thomas has always proved a warm friend. They found in his church their spiritual" home, and became its staunch and fond. adherents. There is another, class of worship pers, too, at St. John's. These people became con...

PERFUMES FROM FLOWERS EXTRACTING THE OIL. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

PERFUMES FROM FIjOWERS EXTRACTING THE OIL. In these d^ys of specialisation (states the "Rural New Yorker") it will hardly pay anyone to attempt the home prepa ration, of perfume materials except as an amusement. J3ut the principlies. in volved are simple and . the (practice easy. The fundamental fact is that a stream of steam will pick up and carry along with it certain of the oily "bodies, "es sential oils," found in plants, and will deposit most of its burden when cooled to water. This fact is illustrated by the spreading through a room of the odor of onions, for instance, while they are being boiled. But not. all oils are picked up, and not all that is taken is again recovered, partly because the steam splits some of the more delicate compounds into simpler bodies which have slight odor, and partly because a part of the "oil" is soluble in the condensed water and can by no means be got out. No essential oil is only one thing; from some a dozen or more bodies have been isolated, a...

SUNDAY READING GREATEST SIMILEI UTTERED CHRIST'S HOMELY PHRASE SALVATION FOR MANKIND. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

..GREATEST SIMILEI UTTERED CHRIST'S HOMELY PHRASE SALVATION FOR MANKIND. At the Atibunr Baptist Church, on Sunday,- December 28, the preacher was the Rev. Howard Elliott, of New Zealand. Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life; he that cometh to Me shall never hunger," were the words of his text, from St. John, 6th chapter, > 35 th verse. He said: Jesus expressed all the infinite in Him in the most commonplace terms. He called Himself . "Life," "Light," "Water" and "Bread." We are at once easily able to grasp the meaning of these, words, yet who of us can ex haust that meaning? After Christ had fed the five thousand with the nve barley loaves and two fishes they fol lowed Him to Capernaum., Their curiosity was aroused not so much by the miracle as by the abun dant provision He had made for them. They said, "What shall we do that we might work the works of God?" Jesus answered, "Believe in Me." But the multitude was not ready to accept Jesus Christ at His own estimate of Him ...

PRUNES FOR DRYING THE AMERICAN METHOD. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

PRUNES FOR DRYING THE AMERICAN METHOD. Amongst the numerous varieties of | prunes (states an American horticul j tural paper) few are suitable for I drying—that is to say, capable of pro | ducing the article known as the : French prune. As a matter of fact, tfie French prune may be French, or it may be Italian, Hungarian, Belgian, or Prune d'Argen, any or all of which make the French prune of commerce. The drying prune is the possessor of a very compact, tough skin. To' per mit evaporation and prevent bloat ing this skin is cut or perforated. Be fore drying can proceed, this is done with the perforating machine or by the lye process (the method generally used). After going through the fan ning mill the fruit is turned in a wire basket, dipped for a few seconds in the lye solution, given a whirl to get the lye all through the basket, then plunged into clean water to wash out the lye. Running water should be used, otherwise the lye will deposit on the fruit. The. strength of the solut...

PLAYS AND PLAYERS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

When, on December 27, "Monsieur Beaucaire" was staged at the Theatre Royal, a packed house gave Mr Lewis. Waller a most encouraging reception, and at the conclusion of the perform ance accorded him the most enthusi astic ovation he has received since his season began in Melbourne. There 1 is ! no need to institute obvious compari sons between Mr Lewis Waller, wild "created" the part of Beaucaire.; in "London, and Mr Julius Knight, who ih troduced the fascinating Frenchman to Australian theatregoers. It is enough to say that Mr Waller gets right inside to say that Mr. Waller gets right inside the character, and handles it with consummate artistry. In, a part of this, kind Mr. Waller is undoubtedly seen at his best, and his gallant bearing, the graceful manner; in which he wear's his magnificent, Costumes, the perfection of his bows, the fervor of his lovemaking, and his dramatic intensity—the last at times; a trifle too marked in such a graceful poseur as Beaucaire—-win-for him the s...

TO MAKE CIDER SOUND APPLES ESSENTIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

TO TYfATtlF! OTDKR SOUND APPLES ESSENTIAL. There is a general belief that wind falls of any kind of apples* that cannot be marketed will do for cider. Ripe, clean apples only should be used. Divide the fruit, so that in case of worms they may be cut out. The later cider is made, other things being equal (states an American expert), the better it will keep. A good cider apple should be hard and sound, with rich juice and a somewhat acid flavor. Freshly-made cider should be placed in one or more open-headed casks, set upright, with faucets a few inches from the bottom, through which the cider can be racked oil'. Let stand about eight hours for the scum to rise to the top, which should be skimmed off. If about one pint of strong wood, ashes and the same of lime is put in a barrel it will cause the pomade to rise to the top better. A deposit of fine pomace will settle to the bottom below the faucet. Care should be taken wnen drawing or dipping cider not to disturb the settlings in the b...

He pictures himself on a hill listening to bells ringing, men clutching rattling ropes that disap pear into the dark above, and to a mad romping din. The last verse reads:— But to me heard afar it was heavenly music, Angels' so-ag comforting as the comfort of Clirist When he spake tenderly to His sorrowful flock. The old words came to ities by the riches of time Mellowed and transfigured, as I stood oa the hill \ Hark'ning in the aspect of the eternal silence..

RELIGION IN THE REMOTE LITTLE GROUPS LISTEN, [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

i BEMGION IN TOE KEMOTE little groups listen. Presbyterians should feel some pride thattheir church is pioneering the way in central Australia, and carrying re ligion to families who were, until re cently, strangers to -church services for many years, Mr R, B. Plowman, ,;the young mis sionary who went, & little over a year ago, to Central Australia, from Mel bourne, has had some novel expe riences, A week ago he told a Mal vern congregation that the last service he had conducted was in a little bush church in Central Australia, formerly used as a wheelwright's shop. Here a handful of women and children and three men made up the congregation. Mr Plowman has conducted services in all sorts of queer places. One of his most lonely journeyiiigs brought him to a group of little bare cottages, along a railway line. They belonged to the repairers who looked after the railway. This spot is one. of the most dreary, as a place of. habitation, in all Australia. He tells how, on a Sunday...

Relations with America [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

Relations with America Professor Johnstone, of Harvard Urii* versity, has announced an opinion to the effect that the British oversea dominions will look to the United States for protection in future. The pro-* fessor is plainly thinking- along1 lines* which have long appealed to politicians and humanists in Great Britain, America and the .Dominions as well. But there is a section: of American poii® (icians who are-firmly and consistently? against any really effective arbitration^ \ arrangements being made, and they- \ are. the greatest obstacle to the estab lishment of a tribunal that. woul<| be a beneficent object lesson to • the world. Professor Johnston© has gone beyond the conventional C idea, and seems to think the Dominions will have to be taken under America's wing, for protection. This is not th© opinion in Australasia. The position, ■ ; stated; broadly, is that Australia 1& anxious to join hands with the United . " States to the end of forming, with, the...
