A MONEY LENDER'S DODGE. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 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 select a good .mark for such an unsolicited loan. He 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 hie assumes that the recipient will be greatly impressed by the openhanded ..ay In winch the money-lender deals w.itL his clients. An incident of this kind has led to a pleasant little comedy between the Rev. Herbert Williams, of liorsley-down, Bermondsey, and J. Marsh Ltd, money lenders. Mr Wil liams has speciahsed in extricating young men from the toils of money ienders, received a letter from J. Marsh, Ltd., enclosing £50 in notes as an unsolicited loan. Mr Williams refused to sign...
OVERCLAD SCHOOL-CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 February 1914
OVEROLAD SCHOOL-C-IILDREN. Dr Douglas, the Government inspeo ;or for schools in Morayshire, has. brought to light astonishing details ot now some school ohildren in the North *j Scotland are almost smothered by the amount of cloches they are com pulled to wear (says the "Evening ,aundard"). Dr Douglas states that he found 72 per cent of the children wearing such a mass of clothes as to be really dangerous to health. The worst case in this respect was a girl who had eleven layers of clotning, and the teacher volunteered the information that there was an additional overcoat in the cloak-room. Dr Douglas also dlisuJvered that many of the children slept in the garments they wore outside.
CELERY. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 February 1914
CELERY. It is the object of every good kitchen gardener to have a suppy of well bleached, orisp celery, and to have it as early and late as possible is one of the points in gardening to - which attention should be paid. At the same time, there are uificulties in the 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 the one that produces early celery. It is generally admitted that the celery of our gardens is an improved variety of a wild p'antl found in ditch es and other marshy places, where it grows, seeds, and reproduces itself in the usual w?ay; and it is generally bound in the greatest vigor when near the sea coast or a tidal river, salt in some shape being beneficial to it. Grow ing naturally in such places, it is hard ly surprising that the progress of the cuitivatced plant in dry, hot garden soils during the summer months is slow and unsatisf...

WELL WORTH KNOWING. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 February 1914
WELL WORTHI' KNOWING. Hlt, had only been married six months, but already wore a worried look. An older friend of his, many years of matrimonial experience bilt!!d him, asked him what troubled him. "e\\:ll, it's like this," he answered. "My wife is one of the best in the wotid, but I'm hanged if I can get her to miend my shirts." '1 suppose," answered the man experience, "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 1. can say Jack Robinson she give me the shirt back mended."
RUNNING THE FIRES [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 February 1914
RUNNING THE FIRES A gentleman and eight lady tourists &nbsp; who went on a drag excursion to &nbsp; Buchan and Murrindal caves had a very exciting experience with bush fires. The party left Bairnsdale driven by Mr J. Bailey and arrived at Buchan the same evening. Next day they drove to Mur rindal caves, about 8-miles from Buchan. The road is narrow, being up and down hill all the way. They inspected the caves, which were admired and were considered worthy of a visit. They left on the return journey at 8 o'clock, and when about three miles out they met bush fires on both sides of the road. Horsemen warned them to turn back and they followed the advice. They waited for three hours before the jour ney was again attempted. Men went ahead clearing the track. The fires were still blazing and the smoke and heat were intense. The ladies were protected with horse rugs, and eventually arrived safely at Buchan. On Sunday (24th ult.) the return trip to Bairnsdale, after dinner a...
MARRIED IN HER SHROUD. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 13 February 1914
IMIARRIED IN HER SHROUD. After being pronounocd incurable by a score or more of physicians of the first rank and operated on nino times, each time with supposedly fewer chan oes of recovery, Miss Sophie M.

FERMENTATION IN PAPER MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 13 February 1914
FERMENTATION IN PAPER MAKING. Among the recent improvements in handling paper-making materials is a process for extracting the starch from cotton rags" that are used in making linen papers. Practicall31 all cotton oloth has some kind of a filler, and much of this is starch. In clippings from new cloth, there is a considerable amount of starch filler. It was the practice formerly to soak the rags in *warm water, and then to boil them in an alkali solution. But the effect of the alkali on starch is very slow, as it causes the starch to swell up, so that the solution reaches the inner part of the starch grains only with difficulty. Mralt is added in the proper :imount to convert the starch into a soluble sugar which readily dissolves out of the fibre of the cloth and leaves it free of the filler. The active principle of the malt is the "enzymes" that attack the starloh just as they do in the brewing process, and convert it into a form of sugar that is easily disposed of.

FRUIT GROWING IN CANADA. The Canadian Minister of Agriculture is causing a special inquiry to be made into the fruit-growing industry of Can ada. The investigation will be con ducted with a view to scouring the best and most reliable information, respect ing the area and extent of land adapt ed to fruit growing in the provinces, and the varieties of fruit, which have been found to be most profitable and most successful in each locality; the tendency towards concentrating on the production of standard varieties on a large scale, and the facilities for dis tributibn and marketing.

MAN'S BEST FRIEND. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 13 February 1914
MAN'S BEST FRIEND. So many peaple tell of the faithful ness shown by the dog and the horse that we have oome to call them man's best friends. The term friendship as we commonly understand it, means all round all the time helpfulness. A friend is one we can not well do without. If you are a successful farmer and keep thoroughbrcd cows you are proud of them. You sell them for a big price. Did you ever stop to think what the cow is good for besides this? Without her, where would the house wife be? Where would the cook in your home look for a product to take the place' of milk? Milk in its vari ous forms is the very foundation of her operations. Milk, cream, butter, cheese, puddings, pies, cake, bread, and so on through the list. Your cow gives the milk to fill the mother's breast to feed the little in fant nestling in her arms, that may be come a grat man in the w;orld. If, percliance, that mother is taken from the home, the milk from the cow is depended on to bring up the suckling The...

NOISELESS CITY STREETS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 13 February 1914
NOISELESS CITY STREETS. There is coming into uise in Germany a cheap and ready method of asphalting a stone-paved street which is showing good results. The space between pav ing blocks are oleaned out to the depth of about an inch, and then a layer of melted asphalt is flowed over the street surface, the depth of the layer being about one inch. Before it is cooled, sand is sprinkled on and the surface is smoothed. At Frankfort a section of this kind is now laid, and it appears to stand the wear remarkably well. Should the method prove a success in general practice it will afford an excel lent means of deadening the noise of city traffic at a small expense. It is quickly carried out, and it need not stop the circulation on narrow streets for any length of time. Moreover, repairs are easily made.
