The Economical Housewife. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 20 January 1914

The Economical Housewife. Mr. Summers was very fond of trout fishing, and each year tried to have at least a. week of good sport. The' day before he was to start on his long-look ed-for vacation his wife entered the room smiling, and showing her husband some sticky speckled papers. "For goodness sake," he exclaimed, "what are you doing with those old fly papers ?" "Why, I saved them for you from last season I" she replied. "You know you said you always had to buy flies when you went fishing!" When Mark Twain, in his early days, was editor of a Missouri paper, a su .erstitious subscriber wrote to him say ing that he had found a spider in his naper, and asking him whether that was a sign of good luck or bad. The humorist wrote hi.i this answer and printed it: "Old Subscriber.-Finding a snider in your paper was neither good luck nor bad luck for you. The spider was merely looking over our -aper to see which merchant is not advertising, so that lie can go to that store, spin his web acr...

CASH REWARDS FOR UGLY WOMEN. Some Quaint Charities. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 20 January 1914

CASH REWARDS FOR UGLY WOMEN. Some Quaint Charities. A well-known bachelor who died the other day at Frankfort, Germany, left an endowment for an annual prize 6! £25 to the man who leads the ugliest woman to the altar. If the bride is lame as well as unprepossessing, the groom will receive an additional sum of £5. This reminds us that the town of Haschmann, in Germany, has a sys tem of rewarding lovers who marry girls who have little or no personal attractions. A well-known financier left a sum of money to the town au thorities to provide dowries for the plainest woman under thirty married in Haschmann every year, a cripple, and four women under forty who had been Jilted several times. Some years ago a merchant of Ken tucky, U.S.A., instructed his execu tors to invest a certain sum of money and divide the interest every year-on their wedding days-among five Am erican girls who were possessed of heads of "reddish-gold" hair. The founder of this marriage portion died a bachelor, and th...

A STROKE FOR A THRONE. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 20 January 1914

A STROKE FOR A THRONE. Eizabeth Petrownaa, daughter of Peter the Great, was the natural suc cessor to her brother, Peter 11., on the Russian throne By the latter's will. however, the empire passed to a cous in, Anne of Courland, who handed ii on at her death to a nephew, Ivan, two years of age. Ivan was proclaimed Czar, and his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Brunswick, appointed themselves Re. gents during his minority: but their administration was extremely unpopu lar in Russia and distasteful to the other European Powers. The Princess Elizabeth continued to reside at Court, apparently uninter ested in affairs of State until the dan gers of her position were made clear to her. As the dynastic heir to the throne and the idol of the people, she was the object of the Regents' jeal ousyf. and suspicion. Secret Informa tion compelled her to choose between a desperate stroke for the crown that rightfully belonged to her, or the cer tainty of death on the scaffold. Stirred to action by ...

8EIZING AN OPPORTUNITY, A Student's Predicament. Out of the poverty of his childhoo. an energetic young fellow had fought his way through the University. Alter graduation he felt he must see Europe. and with the little accumulation he had he "crossed the Pond," trusting te good luck to get him home again. But his trip of sightseeing over, he found himself in Liverpool without monet and with no means of getting any. He thought he would just go down to the steamer, go on board, and see how it would seem if only he were going home. As he wandered over the big line; his attention was attracted by a cry ing baby. The mother was travelling alone, and while she was attempting to see to all the thousand and one details incident to the beginning of an ocean trip, the baby had resented the absence of attention and was cry ing. The mother was at her wits' end. The stranded. youth's kind heart prompted him to say, "Let me taie the baby, madam. Perhaps I can keep him quiet until your preparation...

Country Telephone Lines. CHEAPER CONSTRUCTION WANTED. AN OPENING FOR LOCAL EFFORT, [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 20 January 1914

Country Telephone Lines. CHEAPER CONSTRUOTION WANTED.. AN OPENILG FOR LOCAL EFFORT, Complaints have for some time been raised concerning the cost of the con struction of telegraph and telephone lines in country districts. It has been alleged that the Postal Depart m nt does rot do this work as cheap ly as it might. The chief trouble appears to occur over the class of telephone line in which the department rcquires either a guarantee or a contribution in money or kind before undertaking the erec tion of 'the line. The contention in these cases is that the Department's estimate of revenue ate unduly low, whilst its estimates of codstof construc tion. ar'excessively high, or that the standards set are unnecessarily high and tlierefore costly, and that pre posals which under d-fferentmethodý of.construceion would be financial are rendered unfavorable and are icjected by the department. Instructions have been. issued' by the department that the cheapqst pos sible methods of construction ...
