A FUNERAL IN NAZARETH. Each, religious community has a sep arate cemetery, and tho Moslems have two. A death in the household is im mediately announced to tho neighbor hood by tho shrieks of tho relatives who have been sitting around the deathbed. If a Moslem tho {lying man is turned so as to face Mecca. No special religious ceremony is per formed then; but if the bust, struggle seems to be prolonged the "khateob," or priest, may be summoned to invoke Allah that tho spirit may quickly leave the distressed body. It is believed to be tho reward of a virtuous life to have a quick ending. Tho hands are liltod up at the very last, as a final acfiier enoo to tho Moslem creed. Tho mo ment that the death occurs the women .scream, tear their hair, and rend their clothes, especially the covering of their breasts, and-beat their chests. This frenzy brings all tho neighbours, who crowd into the chamber of grief and add their voices to' the tumult. Such a scone may last an h,our, but sooner or-l...

Then it was that Mrs B. volunteered to out it for h.im. and Blossom, probably owing to his woak condition,, consented to the ex periment, Mrs B. fastened the table oloth under Blossom's chin and got to business!. Then Blossom repented his rashness." "Great Scott, Martha," he yelled, as Mrs B. jammed the point of the scis sors in: his neck. "What the dickens do you think you're doing?" "Am 1 hurting you, dear?" mur mured Mrs B. "It's only those cor ners behind your ears that bother me. Do keep still." And then she sliced a bit off his ear. "Thundering Jumbo 1" shouted B., jumping about the room like a oat on hot bricks. '-Oh no, I'm only doing this for fun." And he dashed upstairs and plunged his head in the bath. i "That's the worst of Tom,"/ sighed Mrs B., as she took up her knitting. "He's alwayB so ungrateful 1" I

OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Rusticu "This is a great. country, but it is not u.sed," said an American tbo other day. Ho said it with an air of un covering a fact of which Australians are not aware, and which it would bo well for thorn to know and to aot ac cordingly. There is no gainsaying tbo accuracy of his observation, and it is probable that there aro fow Australians who think at all, who do not ack nowledge its truth. But to aot upon the knowledge is altogether a different matter. Thero is some progress to wards exhibiting more fully the im mense resources of the country,^ but it is a painfully slow process. 1'or the most part, we aro not far in advance of the lotos eating natives of tbo tro pic:* who are content to take the "ood.s the gods provide in tho^ shapo of tho fruit, fiish and flesh.

A MONEY LENDER'S DODGE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 11 February 1914

A MONEY LENDER'S DODGE. There Is keen, competition among the money-lenders of London. One of tho latest phases of this rivalry is the sending to a selected person Bank of England notes for a loan of £50 or more, without entering into any pre vous negotiations with the recipient. The money-lender is careful to seleot a good mark for such an unsolicited loan. Ho takes the view that a, per son who has the notes in his possession will find it hard to return them if he is in need of financial assistance, and he a^um'ea that the recipient will bo greatly impressed by the openhanded way in which tho money-lender deals with his clients. An incident of this kind has led to a pleasant little comedy between the Ilev. Herbert Williams, of Horsley-down, Bormondsey, and J. Marsh Ltd, money lenders. Mr Wil liams has specialised in extricating young men from tho toils of money lenders, received a letter from J. Marsh, Ltd., enclosing £50 in notes as an unsolicited loan.

At tho sumo time, there aro difficulties in tuo way of obtaining it early in .some places to which it is advisable to call atten tion, as the situation best* fitted to bring forward early peas, cauliflowers and potatoes, is not always tho one that produces early celery. It is generally admitted that the celery of our gardens is an improved variety of a wild plantl found in ditch es and other marshy places, where it grows, seeds, and reproduces itself in tho usual way; and it is generally found in tho greatest vigor when near the sea coast or a tidal river, salt in some shape being beneficial to it.

GIRLS WITH BRAINS NEEDED IN THE HOUSEHOLD. "Domestic service as a career for educated women" was advocated by Mrs CJloudosley Ik'ere ton at the Na tional Gas Co/iferojico.

"Well, it's like this," he answered. "My wife is one of the best in the world, but I'm hanged if I can get her to mend my shirts." "I suppose," answered' the man ' experienoe, "you go up to her and ask her to mend a shirt, for you when it needs repairing?" "Why, of course I do." "Ah, that's where you make a mis take. Now, what I do is this. When I find that one of my shirts wants mending I wave it about a bit, and say to my wife, 'This thing's no good, where's the rag-bag?" " 'You're surely not going to throw that shirt away, are you ?" she will say. "Let me have a look at it.' " "She takes.it, gives one look at it, and says, 'What, throw it away because of that little hole?" And before I oan say Jack/ Robinson she give me the shirt back mended."

WHAT OUR FOREFATHERS ATE. A. German paper publishes an inter esting article on the lost dishes of tho Middle Ages.

For instance, in Germany, in tho middle Ages, many vegetables were eaten wliioh have long ainco dis appeared from tho table, such as vio let leaves, mixed with young nettlos, thistles and green wheat, and boiled hemp seeds. Salads wore mado of mallow loave>\ celery roots, and purs lane, mixed with salt and pepper, for oil was almost unknown. Olive oil was considered to smack of effiminaoy and Italian luxury. ELorso radish .sauco was used instead. Tho origin of sauerkraut is lost in antiquity. But it was certainly invented by tho .Ger man Jiausfrau long before oauiiflowers or artichokes or potatoes wero known.
