WHAT THE NIGGER THOUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 14 March 1914
WHAT THE RIGGER THOUGHT. ------+----- Admiral De Horsey is: an excellent. raconteur, an'd from out of his fund' of anecdote, does not hesitate to, bring forth a story against himself,. if it be a good one. The follow ing is one of the best, especially when told by the Admiral himself. It was when he was Commodore in the West Indies, and his ship lying in Port Royal harbour, Jamaica. One night he went ashore to dine, with the Governor at Kingston, but forget to learn the password fore. the night. Returning on board after dinner, he was stopped at the dock yard gates by a. sentry of the West: India Regiment. "Who go dar ?" demanded the black warrior, bringing his, bayonet to the charge. "A friend," came the reply out of the dark. "Wal, Massa Frie', what am. de: countersign ?" "That's all right, you know me," said the Commodore.. "Me know nobody no got dat countersign," and he brought his bayonet perilously near the officer. "You no can pass h'yar." "But I am Commodore De Hor-k sey." T...
A MAN WHO WAS RANGED. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 14 March 1914
A MAN WtnU WAR KARWIatU. It was the custom in the good old days, especially in Ireland, to hang condemned men for half an hour, and then hand them over to theii friends. A man named Mahoney was hanged. i this way. At: the end of half an hour his boey was given to his friends, who put him in a coffin they had bronugit with them, and. galloped off with him on a cart. But, befere they were out of sight of the gallows authorities, the corpse in the exuberance of his joy sat up in ?he coffin and shouted "Hooroo !" A. "pall," terrified lest ,his exhibition of vitality should cause the execu tioner to come after them, hit the hanged man playfully on the head with his stick, remarking, "Kapa q-uitt, ye divil." The sileacing was so effectual that the victim of it never woke again, but was well and truly waked that same evening. There was no doubt that the blow on the head had killed him. The facts came to the knowledge of the authorities, and a justice was ap: pealed to for a warrant for the...

PUBLICATIONS.. Should Australian Girls. Read Novels? Next to America, th? Australian public as a whole-workers, mid dle-class, and well-to-do-consumes a greater quantity of reading mat ter per year than any other people under the sun, So says. a writer in the March issue of 'Everylady's Journal'. Analysing further,. the writer states that the' Australian girl, compared with her English sister, has a remarkably wide know ledge, if not of literature at least of books. And it is on the quality of these books and the question of whether or not the quality should be limited, that this article turns. The question was put. to a number of leading public men and replies received from:- Hon. P. M. Glynn (Minister. of External Affairs). Sis Josiah Symon. K.C. Mr Watt (Premier of Vic toria). Sir Langdon Bonython, of Ade laide. Mr Frank Tate (Director- of Education).

Becipew Cold cream is often useful for rough. ness of the skin. A very good recipe foi making'ib is the following :-Tdkea quaaY ter of an ounce of white.wax and shred it into a basin, with one ounce of almond diiil- Place the basin by the fire until the Wart is dissolved; then add very slowly one ounce of rosewater, little by little, aiid meanwhile beat smartly with a fork, to make the water incorporate, and con tinue beating till it is accomplisbed; then pour into jars ready for use. Veal Broth is very nourishing, and sf generally most acceptable to invalids. Take two pounds of knuckle of veal, cut the meat up small, and break the bone in pieces. Place it in a stewpan with half an onion, half a head of celery, three long pepper and a tiny piece of lemon peel. Pour over all three pints of cold water. Set the stewpan on the fire and let it simmer, skimming it carefully all the time. After cooking five or six hours strain into a pan, and leave it till cold. Remove the fat, and when re...

ELECTRICITY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 14 March 1914
. H ,ELECTRICITY.. WHEN Pleydell, the celebratedh Edinburgh lawyer depicted by Scott in Guy Mannering, was waited upon by a deputation of farmers from the border-land,.who desired the best legal opinion as to a question of rights about land;, he (Pleydell) was. found engaged in playing= ' High jinks,' part of which consisted of dancing on the table, 'upsetting the office furnish-,. ings, and overthrowiig the tomes of legal knowledge. The surprise. of the deputation can be imagined as similar to the way in which the ratepayers of Queenscliff have this week received the decision regard- I ing the injunction set up, aga.irnst the- borough's electric scheme. High jinks have been played with the desire of the ratepalyers of` Queenscliff through the action of one non-resident .ratepayer. The whole of the borough's representa ,tives and almost the whole.. of the .the ratepayers -have once again I:been defied in their laudable inten ition to help and improve Que.ens, cliff and district., Yo...
DOCTOR AND PATIENT. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 14 March 1914

One day he heard that a poop young woman, whose husband: was a clerk in the War Office, had' been taken ser iously ill. He went to see her, at tended her for a month, and finally brought her round. At the end of this period he per ceived that the- husband wished to ask him for his. account, and for time to pay it in.

"Ah ! doctor,," said the husband, "If you think you. would like to have- it- -" "I should indeed, very much like to have it. Look here, we will make a bargain. You owe me two hundred francs for my visits. Your carpet is worth three. hundred. Here are a hundred francs, and I'll. take it with. me." And he left, glad to have done the poor . people a kindness; without wounding their pride. O...

A PUGILISTIC CABBY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 14 March 1914
A PUGILISTIC CABBY. Mr. Grant. Allen used to tell of an amusing experience with a Londbon, cab-driver. After leaving his publisher's; he hired a cab to drive "?to a brother novelist. On arriving. at 'his destination he tendered the cabby- four shillings,, which was a: little over, the proper fare. The -driver, however, was not sati?aed, and wanted six shillings. Grant Al len refused to pay more, whereupon the driver offered to fight him for it.. Allen, who knew as much about the art of self-defence as the man in the moon, was rather taken back at the man's request; however, he agreed, saying, "The very thing, my friend: will; hold the money- and act- as refe ree, so come along." Cabby got. down and followed him into the gar den.- Allen then placed the six shil lings into his friend's hand, took off his coat, rolled: up- his shirt-sleeves- all with an air of cheerful alacrity, and bade the man come on. His anxiety was intense, but it relaxed as he. watched: the cabman's face, showing...

CARE FOR THE MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 14 March 1914
CARE FOR THE MILK. The following statement, made by Professor O. F. Hunziker before the farmers attending the short courses at Purdue, sums up in a few wordEl the situation relative to the care of milk, and cream on the farm : "Cleanliness and low temperature are the fundamental essentials in the proper care and handling of milk and cream, regardless of what disposition may be made of the product. The purpose of these essentials is to pre vent or retard bacterial fermenta tions which shorten the life and im pair the keeping quality and whole someness of milk and its products. When the dairyman disregards these essentials he becomes a menace to the health and life of the consumer and a demoralising factor of the markets of dairy products, curtailing the financial success of his own busi ness. With due attention to the pro per care of milk and cream he be comes a benefactor to the human family, a promoter of high quality of 4airy products, and a -guardian of the welfare and prosperity...

CHAPTER XII.-(Continued.) "I have heard of you, Sir Peter," she said ; and her voice was low and sweet. "You are the friend of Lord Chester, are you not ? Such a good, kind friend as you have been to him, too." She placed her hand in that of Sir Peter, who scarcely knew what he was doing, so completely had the beauty of this woman driven from him his boasted calmness. She was beautiful .beyond compare on the stage. She was doubly beautiful at close range, and without the arti fices of the stage. Sir Peter sat down. "I was his friend," he said in re ----,.ply to her last remarks. "I was the friend of Lord Chester until that un grateful young man insulted me to my very face." "Insulted you ? Lord Chester in sulted you? Why, the ungrateful fel low ! How could he do such a thing as that ?" "I'll te...
LADY FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 14 March 1914
'LADY FARMERS. Sedgewick, a community in that district of the Western Canadian prairies, known as Central Alberta, is six thousands miles distant from Great Britain, but it is the location of a colony of settlers from the Old Country who were attracted to the ready-made farms prepared here by the Canadian Pacific Railway. Most of the farmers under, this scheme are married men, but on one of the farms on this colony are two bachelor girls (they are too young to be referred to as spinsters). To this farm, Mr. H. A. Kennedy., a well known writer, recently paid a visit. "Two young ladies," he says, "are working in partnership. They find no difficulty in the arrangement, though the average farmer out there assures you that partnerships are unwork able in such a business. Each mem ber is responsible for her own depart ment, but is always ready to help the other. 'Miss Wittrick looks after the dairy and the house,' said her partner, Miss Jack May, 'and she is a beautiful butter maker and a...
THE FARM AND DAIRY. REARING CALVES OF TUBERCULOUS COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 14 March 1914
THE FARM AND DAIRY. REARING CALVES OF TUBEROU LOUS COWS. This is a subject which is of parlti cular importance to our dairy farm-i ers, more particularly in view of the fact that pasteurisation of the skim milk. is rapidly coming into vogue. A series of experiments h-ave been carried out recently by the Royal Ag ricultural Society of England to de monstrate the possibility of rearing calves free from.the disease, in spite of their having been born of cows that react to the tuberculin test. At the present time there are on the farm at Woburn. thirteen yearlings and two calves born this year, and a healthier lot no one could wish to see, in spite of the fact that their dams reacted to the test shortly be fore parturition. All that has been done is to separate the calves from the cows immediately after birth, and remove them to a farm a mile away, where they have been reared under circumstances that prevent direct or indirect contact with the tuberculous cattle. All the milk used for f...

WATER ! WATER !:, This is the cry and desire of quite a number of. our large hotels and boarding houses atpresentf and .there has set in, in.consequenec, a fervid disposition to support any scheme having for its attainment a permanent supply of fresh water. We have before mentioned this,but. the continued dry weather has. ac-. centuated the appeal. It, therefore, becomes the bounden duty of townsmen to take some definite steps to secure for Queenscliff this necessary.. There are at present two proposi tions to be considered--whether we should seek to have the supply ar ranged with the Geelong- Water Trust, as -proposed about twelve months ago, or firstly investigate the resourrces of supply of the recent discovery at Point Lonsdale., In view ..of the,:.advantages of nearness, being within the borough, ·..: we claim this should have our first consideration. It. is just possible that herein lies at our door,awaiting our use, an abundance of fresh water. If the opinion of the dis cover...
