WHERE SAVING IS A HABIT. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 13 December 1910
WHERE SAVING IS A HABIT. Interesting information regarding the thrift of the F*rench people is contained in the latest publication put out by the National Monetary Commission in the shape of a con tribution by Alfred Neymarck, editor of the 'Rentier,' a French financi al publication. Mons. Neymarck, to show how general the habit of saving is in France, says: 'There are in France 10,000,000 electors, almost all tax payers. All, or nearly all, save their money with the intention of putting something by for their old age. There are savings in the special organisations called savings institu tions, in the mutual benefit societies, in banks and securities, in lands (unimproved property), and in hous es (improved property). Such is the composition * of the private wealth of France, a wealth which is infinitely disseminated. £850,000,000 in Small Investments. 'It can be proved, in fact, that of these 10,000,000 electors, 9,000, 000 at least have a book at some savings institutions, a Gover...
THE HUMBLE DUTIES OF A WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 13 December 1910
THE HUMBLE DUTIES OF A WIFE. 'Here's the whole thing in a nut shell,' said Brown to me. 'I am now twenty-eight years old, have my own business, and have brought it to such a state that I have decided to take a partner,' says a writer in the 'American Magazine.' 'Take one?' asked I. ''There's the rub,' he gave back. 'My partner must be such an all round knowing one that I'm afraid I'll have hard work to fill the posi tion. My partner must be able to make laws and to enforce them, must be able to carry out complicated chemical work, must be a skilled mechanic, must know something of economics, must be able to buy wares of all kinds with due consider ation of my finances, must be able to do tailoring, of a kind, if neces sary.' 'Hold on, Brown,' safd I. 'Are you dippy, as the vulgarians say?' 'No,' replied he. I want a wife. Look around among your friends and see if any one man among them could do all that a good housewife should be able to do. She must make just laws for the family an...
A FRIENDLY FLEET. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 13 December 1910
A FRIENDLY FLEET. Not all naval demonstrations, even in time of struggle, belong to battle A 'pleasant picture of some of the amenities of the Civil War is given by Alexander Hunter in 'Johnny Reb and Billy Yank.' The incident took place on the. banks of the Rappahannock, on the opposite sides of which the pickets of the Northern and the Southern armies were stationed. In the early morning the Confederate soldiers heard a cry : -'Johnny Reb! I say, Johnny Reb! Don't shoot!' 'AH right!' replied Johnny 'What command are you?' 'Black Horse Cavalry Who are you?'' 'Second Michigan Cavalry.' 'Come out! We won't fire.' ; 'On honour, Johnny Reb?' 'On honour, Billy Yank.' A squad of bluecoats advanced on the bank of the water. The South erners did the same. The Yankees call out : 'Got any tobacco?' 'Plenty.' 'Got any sugar or coffee?' 'Not a taste nor smell.' 'Let's trade.' 'AH right; we'll have to send to town for the tobacco, but it won't take long.M 'I say, Johnny, want some news papers?'...

FATAL TO FRIENDSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 13 December 1910
FATAL TO FRIENDSHIP. The spirit of contempt is fatal to any endurable personal relations to another, and every approach to this spirit is an obstacle to a bettering relation. It is the worst of mis takes, therefore, to suppose that, as one's friendships become more in timate,' they may become less truly reverent. The intimacy of friend ship is not measured by the num ber of privacies insolently invaded; and even the closest life relation may not spare the spirit of genuine res pect and deference. The real friend will not demand ; he ?? only asks. The very highest fruit of friend ship can hardly be withheld from the genuinely reverent spirit, where as every trace of contempt embit ters and degrades.
INCLINATION AND PRINCIPLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 13 December 1910
INCLINATION AND PRIN CIPLE. A man should be slow to make promises or enter into agreements, but having made the one or entered into the other, he should fulfil them to the letter, no matter at what cost to himself. In business, in social intercourse, in religion^ in all our dealings with our fellow-men ; in our positions as masters or servants, teachers or pupils, sellers or pur chasers,' there are . to be found two path's— ithe confused ' and . tortuous one of personal inclination, and the dear and straight one of- imperson al principle. He who; abandons the former and takes the y latter will be rid. of all fear or- concern as to the result t)f his actions, and, standing upon 1 the 'rock ; of right; will be in vincible with the invincibility of truth.— James Allen:
THE JAPANESE AND PUBLICITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 13 December 1910
THE JAPANESE AND PUBLICITY. The Japanese have an original way of advertising, applying to the art much of the poetry of which their Ori ental imagination is capable. They have recourse to varied and improvised methods, and '.heir combinations are sometimes as picturesque as they are original. A Japanese merchant in forms his customers that his goods are sent off with the rapidity of a shot. A stationer call his knowledge of nat ural history to his aid thus : — 'Our wonderful paper is as durable as the hide of an elephant.' A Tokio gro cer borrows from psychology, and in mordant language announces that : 'Our vinegar of extra quality is sharp er than the bitterness of the most malignant of mothers-in-law.'
CURIOUS WILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 13 December 1910
CURIOUS WILL. An Austrian army officer, who died a few years ago, left the whole of his fortune to a nephew, on the condition that he should never glance at a news paper. The will stated that this nep hew, who held a Government office, was too fond of reading newspapers — a habit which the testator considered most pernicious. Three trustees were appointed to keep a watch over the heir, and in the event of a single in fringr-.Tient of the prohibitory clause, the fortune was to be distributed among other members of the family. How he must have enjoyed the con tents bills !
NEW USE FOR X-RAYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 13 December 1910
NEW USE FOR X-RAYS. Important observations have recent ly been made by the radiographers at several of the principal London hos pitals in regard to the uses of the X rays for the treatment of consumption. Over a thousand consumptive pa tients have been examined by these means, and as a result the radiograph er in charge of the X-ray department at Guy's Hospital has stated his opin ion that the X-rays are an indispen sable aid to the treatment of consump tion, and can locate the exact position at which the disease is most active.
CURIOUS SENTENCES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 13 December 1910
CURIOUS SENTENCES. Curious sentences are occasionally imposed on criminals There is a case on record of a man tried in Ger many on three counts, two of murder and one of assault 'with intent to kill. He was convicted on all three counts and sentenced to be beheaded twice and a term of two years' imprison ment. In Italy a prisoner was found guilty of fraud on sixty-three' separate charges, receiving a sentence of three years' imprisonment for each, one hundred and eighty-nine years in all.
SEWING HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 13 December 1910
SEWING HINTS. . In buying a thimble, choose one a size larger than your exact fit; and before using it to sew just blow into it and put it on your finger im mediately. The air inside forms a sort of cushion, and makes sewing easy, which cannot be said of tli6 thimble which is your exact size, as it pains your finger after a short time of sewing. Always thread your needle before breaking off the length ofcotton from the reel. The cotton is then much less likely to knot. When threading black cotton, hold the cotton over something white; the contrast in colours en ables you to thread the needle easi ly :'-?-.? .'. 'y ?;.. ',
FOR THE GIRL WHO LIKES FANCY WORK. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 13 December 1910
FOR THE GIRL WHO LIKES FANCY WUUK. A bedspread, which many girls find an attractive piece of faucy work, is made with linen; and is em broidered in cross stitch to match the colours of the room. This style of cover is particularly attractive in blue and white. Cross stitch does not take anything like so long to ac complish as other sorts of stitching, and so many girls enjoy the work, in which they can make such good progress. These covers wash very well, and they are most useful for rooms with which they harmonise. They are not so daintily attractive I as the fchin muslin spreads, which i are all in white, but where they happen to lit in particularly well they are very satisfactory. White crocheted bedspreads are very attractive, and are very popu lar. They are not so line nor so expensive as those of linen, and they take a long time to do, but they wear very well and wash beautifully. A spread made of alternate squares of crochet and linen is also very ef fective. ' Embroidering t...
WASHING LACE CURTAINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 13 December 1910
WASHING LACE CURTAINS. To wash lace curtains is quite a science. They must first be well shaken of loose dust, then, if great ly soiled, soaked over night in a warm suds with two tablespoons of ammonia to the tub. To make the suds, boil fine soap ^until dissolved and strain into the water. In the morning press the folded curtains, two at a time, in a clean basket to remove the water, and drop them into a clean suds prepared like the first. Swash the curtains up and down, soaping, the spots, if there are any, but never rubbing them, even by hand. The third is the clear rinsing water, the fourth is exceed ingly thin starch water which has been blued or tinctured with coffee according to the whiteness or the ecru color of the lace. If frames are used the lace is basted to the cloth upon them when .they are stretched to dry. If not they are to-be pinned scallop by scallop to sheets laid upon the unoccupied floor of a dustless chamber. Should the curtains be very fine, it is a good plan ...
Cookery. Mint Sauce. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 13 December 1910
Cookery. Mint Sauce. I am often asked how -a mint sauce can be made that will keep for at least a year. Here is the way to do it : — Boil '6oz. sugar in 1 pint of vine gar for 15 minutes. Chop up 20Z. mint leaves as finely as possible; put this in a hottlc, and pour over it the warm sugar and vinegar. Cork up tightly. Marrow Chutney. Peel and remove the seeds from a large vegetable marrow, and cut into small pieces. Chop up a pound of onions, sprinkle these and the pieces of marrow with salt, leaving them for 24 hours. Drain off, and boil them with one teaspoonful of mustard, 102. brown sugar, a few chillies, and a pint of malt vinegar for one ? hour. Bottle and cork securely. Bottled Pineapple.

Fill, some wide-mouthed glass bottles with the fruit, cover with cold syrup (made by boiling 31b. pure cane sugar and two pints of water together for 10 minutes, and removing the scum as ...
THE QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 13 December 1910
THE QUESTION. The children had been teasing grandfather with questions all the long, rainy afternoon. He had been very patient, but he had not read his ' newspaper. They had asked where clouds came from and where they were going ; where the sunbeams were when it rained, and why no one had ever counted the sand par ticles on the shore; but when they asked where yesterday had gone, grandfather sighed. ''Don't bother him any more,' Mary said. Grandfather laughed. 'Let me ask you a question,' he said, 'and if you can't answer it you must not ask me any more to-day.' The chil dren agreed to this plan, and grand father asked, 'How can you make eight out of thirteen?' The children retired to a corner, and were still for some time. At last Dorothy tip toed back. 'Can it be done on paper?' she asked. 'Yes,' said grandfather,' and with one stroke of the pencil.' The children trotted away to the library, and no more was heard from them until tea-time. Their faces showed that they had 'given up...
THE PRINCESS'S FOLLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 13 December 1910
THE PRINCESS'S FOLLY. In the days long gone by, when the Saxons were at war with the Welsh, a brave Welsh Prince named Voylas led his soldiers against the fierce and powerful foe. One even ing he brought his men to a halt, and addressed them in simple but impressive terms. He told them that the enemy was quite close, and, that all through the night they must be ready to act at a moment's call. He bade them remember that the whole army might be lost through the neglect of a single man ; there fore, if he discovered any sentinel sleeping at his post he wo aid imme diately pierce him through with his sword as he slept. 'On the vigilance of each senti nel the safety of the whole army depends,' he said; 'therefore, watch !' And the soldiers took his words to heart, for they knew that the Prince never broke his word. Now Voylas loved a gentle and beautiful Princess, who returned h's love, and before he set out on his perilous expedition it was agreed between them that when the battle was ...
