Limericks [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 26 June 1915

Limericks (By 'THE OFFIS KAT.' There's Dr. Borghetti, from the land of Spar hetti, Who physics the big F.S.A., He says if you try it, You won't die if you diet — At least, well, perhaps not to-day. Then there's Dr. E. A. Gibbes, Whose new Ford car never now' jibs; Whenever he's got time for sitting Soldiers', socks you'll find him knitting. Dr. Hutley, when he walks, Wags his head — and then he talks; He can talk the leg off an iron pot; And there's hardly a subject he knows not He'll argue on cabbages, railways and cows, And quite hypnotise you with his beetling brows. You think him guite uppish when he passes by. Withoyt recognising you, but it's his eye — He's very short sighted, I'm sorry to say, But he seems to make up for it some other way. James Dooley, our own M.L.A., Weighs fifteen stone, so they say: He only weighed nine, When elected first time — But that's the political way! Although he has now become great, With the help of the dinners he ate, And makes an impression, W...

Lithgow Bachelors. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 26 June 1915

Lithgow Bachelors. A correspondent last week commented on what he considers the unusual number of old maids in Lithgow. We confess that the matter did not appear to us to be very notice able, and we cannot say whether Lithgow's young men are too poor or too shy to gat and keep a wife, or whether the fault is with the maids in being over-particular as to their choice of a prospective husband, and tne nunioer oi new dresses that he was likely to be able to buy in a year. However, at least one young lady, who is a particular friend of our office 'devil,' appears to think the fault lies with the men in some way, for she has handed us the following verses. The last lines prove that they are not from the girl who was on the Vale of Clwydd Road on Sunday night. Here they are: — The bachelors of Lithgow \(A stupid, and stubborn race) Are in this Christian town of ours A positive disgrace. Parliament should make them wed; For if they do not marry, Our Cyrils, Freds, and Donalds, too, Will al...

TO MAKE YOU LAUGH [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 26 June 1915

TO MAKE YOU LAUGH 'Laugh and the world laughs with you; weep, and you. weep alone.' The three following stories have been sent in by E. Evans, Mort-st., Lithgow: — The telephone bell in the consulting room of a doctor rang. In the absence of the doc tor (who was an enthusiastic cyclist), his assistant answered it, and said the doctor .was out. 'Will you please give him a mes sage?' the voice said. Tell him that Mrs. Thompson has a gymkhana coming on and wants to know if he can do anything for it.' ? 'I will tell him directly he comes in,' said the assistant. 'In the meantime, put a bread poultice on it and renew it every two hours.' A, young lady was being shown over an engineering shop. 'What is that?' she said to her guide, a young engineer. 'Why,' he replied, 'that's an engine boiler.' 'And why do they want to boil engines?' asked the guileless damsel. 'Oh,' he answered, 'to make the engine tender.' « * » ' # ^ A farmer and his daughter were driving home from the market, along a ...

INCREASED COST OF LIVING. A Worry to Housewives. On every hand we hear talk of the f above. A lady writer braves the situa tion as follows: 'We too often buy the more costly article on the simple assump tion thut it is or must be better. Those who have tried, say, ? Pick-me-up Saute, must allow that it is lit for a king, and yet doesn't cost as much as some brands not so good. - A small bottle of it wilr prove this. Surely this being so with I'k'k-mo-up Sauce it is possibly the same with other daily commodities.' You can 't help liking Pick-me-up Sauce — order it to-day. YOU WANT REFRESHMENTS! AH!

Oakey Park Methodist School Hall OPENING DEMONSTRATIONS ON SUNDAY AND WEDNESDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 26 June 1915

Oakey Park Methodist School Hall OPENING DEMONSTRATIONS ON SUN DAY AND WEDNESDAY. The opening ceremony of the. Methodist School Hall at Oakey Park took place last Sunday afternoon, .20th instant. The Rev. John Bowran had charge of the service, which commenced outside the building by singing the 'Old Hundredth,' and prayer. The door was unlocked by Mrs. Hay, and the building declared open by her for the glory of God. The service was then continued inside; tne uoxoiogy being sung and the de dicating prayer offered. The Rev. Bowran, addressing himself to the children, said it was mainly on their be half that the hall was built. He spoke to them about a ladder. Ladders were used in the building of houses, halls, etc, but also they were symbols of life, and we were all the climbers. His address was that they climb the ladder of good men, by living a Christian life; this required care, and the watchword must be 'onward, upward, high oi yet!' Mr. Bowran's address to the adults was based up...

WOMAN'S COLUMN. INTERESTING ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 26 June 1915

WOMAN'S COLUMN. CONDUCTED BY 'MAVIS.' INTERESTING ITEMS. On the eve of her marriage a young wo man in the little village of Lerni, near Bazas, in the Gironde, was astounded on being in formed that the ceremony could riot take place, as she was already a 'wife. The re gistrar soon convinced her that he was not making fun of her, fibwever, by showing her the official record of the wedding. It turned out that, owing to a similarity of Christian name, she had been registered as the wife of a man' who had married her sister, and husband. Before she can wed the man of her choice, therefore, she must first of all divorce the man whom she has hitherto con sidered her brother-in-law. Love is so sweet that we. would do any thing to keep him with us as fresh and strong as at the first. Is this possible? Yes — if the proper way of treating him is dis covered early enough and put in practice. It is so easy to lose the love we have gained by being selfish or capricious or unrespon sive! A girl wh...

BEWARE ©F THE N0Y1SE IN' DENTAL PRACTICE. The extraction of a tooth is a surgical act, and no one is competent to practice dental suigery without years of actual experience.' The greatest risks are\ chosing a dentist haphazardly. A registered practitioner is not a quack, because his registration -implies that he possesses sufficient knowledge and skill for the, efficient practice of his profession. The persons who are doing the greatest mischief are those who, by', printed state ments or otherwise, pretend to be able to give advice and perform acts in relation to matters of which they are ignorant. Thanks to the determined efforts of the Hon. Mr. Flowers, a Bill was actually put through' the Legislat've Council last session, greatly improving the law relating to dentistry, but it cannot be placed on the Statute Book until passed by the Assembly. — Commonwealth Dental Review. The following is the text of the Bill referred to — vide the A.P.N. and N.:— 'This Bill makes it punishable i...

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 26 June 1915

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. Tepid water, softened with ammouia, is good to use on a dark-brown felt hat for the purpose of cleaning it. To polish aluminium, make a mixture of Dorax, ammonia, and water. Apply with a soft brush. To keep roBewood in good condition, all von need rio is to rub it with a cloth every , day. When boiling rice, add a little lemon juice to the water. This makes the rice white, and also separates the grains. Wax for sealing bottles containing fruit or pickles may be made by melting together equal parts of resin and beef suet. Wash sponges in water in which a little tartaric acid is dissolved; they will be beautifully clean and white. Rinse in plenty of clean water. When making up cheap satin, line it with very thin flannelette; you will find this gives It a mucb richer appearance and will pre vent it from creasing. If onions are put in cold water before being peeled a great deal of discomfort can be avoided. They should then be peeled from the water in the same way as on...

New Wallerawang "Company." [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 26 June 1915

New Wallerawang 'Company.' A Wallerawang correspondent writes: — 'Quite a stir was caused locally in financial circles through the flotation of a large joint stock company, viz., 'The Lucrative, Philan thropic, Ferrets and Rabbits, Ltd. The pro motors are well and favorably known on both sides of the water. The objects of the company are three fold: (1) The breeding rabbits to augment the food supply of our soldiers at the front, and relieve the hun ger of the starving Belgians and Poles; (3) and, lastly, to rid the Commonwealth of the destructive rodent pest. The field of the en terprise is not limited to the Western line alone, but will shortly be extended over the whole of New South Wales, and, as the charter is Federal, probably over the whole of the Commonwealth.

EPIDEMIC DISEASE. 'NIP IT IN THE BUD.' 14 It's catching' — this is what people say when a malady spreads among them as fire spreads in dry grass ; the phrase states a fact without explanation, which is a pity, because if once you understand why ' it's catching,' you can prevent it catching instead of having to cure tt — cure is often impossible, and is expensive. Now you can understand the flame running through grass, but you can only see the spread of disease by its results, because disease is spread by living germs or seeds, too small to see, and so light that air can carry and distribute them ; the only way to prevent Disease Germs 'catching' is to kill them. To kill an invisible foe may seem difficult; but in this case it is easy and cheap, for you can kill Disease Germs by meeting them at every point with something in hourly use and immediately fatal to them. Science has given us this in Lifebuoy Royal Disinfectant Soap, and its germ-killing power in hospitals and sanitation ha...

F.S.A. PATIENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 26 June 1915

F.S.A. PATIENTS. It has been said on more than one occas ion by writers on economies that a system of government based on equitable treatment to all sections of the community is that which should commend itself to those in authority. It may not always do bo, of course, but that is no argument against the contentions. Any body of men placed in authority should try and follow the theory, however, but un happily, the practice is not always followed out, or even attempted. There is a tendency in our Parliaments and among our public men in almost all towns, to follow the line of least resistance. This practice is, unfor tunately, often attended with undue hard sh'ps to a section of the community — and 'sometimes a very large section. Take, for instance, the case of the Lithgow Hospital, where only certain of xue medical men in town are allowed to visit and treat the pat ients. The medical men of the Friendly Societies in Lithgow are not permitted to attend to their patients when the latt...
