Blackwarry. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 February 1914
Blackwarry. (KltOM OUR OWN COUP.KSl'OXDKXT.) There is quite a different smile 011 the fiice of the cluiry farmer at present, owing to the recent good rains, which will undoubtedly prolong the season. The grass is now looking quito fresh again. Most of the harvesting opera tions are complete. Mr. Marti is still threshing his cocksfoot, which is an excellent crop, and splendid sample of pure seed. The Blackwarry sports committee are leaving no stone unturned to make the outing a marked success, so with favorable weather, etc., they will no doubt be rewarded for their task. The Klackwarry "West hall is about to bo built. The material is 011 the ground, and the carpenter is daily ex pected. The X Comet Mine is just about starting again, with the expectations of a payable quantity of precious metals. A young lady visitor to Hazel Dell, whilo schooling a pony, the property of a local sport, a few days ago, had quite an experience. She and her hostess were out riding, when suddenly the Mel...

KITCHEN WRINKLES. A cut lemon rubbed on the forehead I will cure a severe headache. ! U' you mix a little common baking s-.idii with the hathbrick you will find ! tiio knives will dean much easier. If a lamp wick is getting short, sew a pieco of ilannel to the end of it. This will be found to be as good as a new wick. To remove the mark of a scorch, wet whatever is scorched with cold water and place it in the sun. When dry, the mark will have disappeared. When buying apples pick the heavi est; also test ihc fruit by seeing if, when pressed with the thumb, it yields a slight cracking sound. Jirown boots and shoes should be rub bed over with a slice of raw potato be fore the polish is applied. This cleans and removes the stains quite easily.

TORN TOGS MENDED—WITHOUT SEWING. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 February 1914
TORN TOGS MENDED— WITHOUT SEWING. When wo aro inking a brisk cross country walk our pleasure is sometimes marred by u nasty three-cornered tear in our dress or suit. Hero is a simple and efficacious way of repairing tho damaged cloth. Go to the nearest farmhouse or cot tage and buy an egg. Place tho cloth flat on the tablo and smear n little whito of the egg all around and over the tear, on tho reverse side. Now cut a piece of linen (a handkerchief will do) a little larger than the tear and place it over the rent so that it ad heres to the white of egg. ' Then get a hot iron and simply press it, without Ironing, over tho linen. The linen will adhere firmly to the cloth and will not como off even if wash ed. The rent in the material will now bo almost invisible on the outside, and tho mending mil last as long as the dress or suit.
COLD MAKES THE HAIR GROW. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 February 1914
COLD MAKES THE HAIR GROW. It is a curious fact that a low tem perature is the best possible tonic for the hair. No explorer has over come homo from tho Arctic or Antarctic without a thick thatch. Sir JCrnest Shacklcton has drawn public attention \o tho fact that several of tho men who accompanied him to tho South started with thin and scanty hair and returned like testimonials of patent hair tonics. Ilo attributed tho result to the lack of germs in frozen regions, a lack which also explains why explorers in tho Arc tic or Antarctic do not catch colds. Precisely the same effect has been no ticed among men whoso work lies in cold storage rooms. Tho air they work in is always below freezing point, and a di rector of a, cold-storage firm recently announced that, from what bo has seen among his employes, it would scarcely bo an exaggeration to say that a freez ing temperature will niako an egg sprout like a shaving brush. Hen af flicted with early baldness grow a nor mal crop of hair aft...
INFLUENCE OF GOVERNESS OBJECTION TO FOREIGNERS [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 February 1914
INFLUENCE OF GOVERNESS OBJECTION* TO FOREIGNERS Remarkable feeling against the em ployment of foreign governesses in French families has recently become apparent here (says the Paris corres pondent of "The Daily News" Decem ber 19), and It seems to draw its chief inspiration from the upper rather than from the middle classes. M. Marcel Prevost gave voice to— if he did not create—the prejudice in his book "Guardian Angels," and it has been Intensified by the publicity given to the author's views by the adaptation of the story to the stage. The English public may judge of the actual position of the controversy by a series of interviews in "The Temps," giving opinions for and against the foreign governess. Princess de Faucigny Lencinge, who is not only a "grande dame" but an authoress as well, takes a surprisingly "Nationalist" view of the question..The education of the French girl by the foreigner she remarks, i-f it is not scrupulously controlled by the parents cannot but influence d...
FIRING HORSE'S MOUTH OBSOLETE TREATMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 February 1914
FIRING WORSE'S MOUTH OBSOLETE TREATMENT. ! For burning a horso's mouth Percy Manning1, a farrier, was lined 10/, in cluding costs, at Enfield, and for per mitting the burning David Hale, a far mer, was also fined 10/, including costs (says "The Daily Mail" of December 16). Each defendant was ordered to pay £1/1/ for veterinary fees. A solicitor (for"the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) said Hale noticed that a horse which was his property had swollen sums, and could not eat its food. He took it to Manning, who treated the animal for "lampas,'' which was an imaginary disease. "Manning burnt the horse's mouth, a practice wh-jh had died out for twenty or thirty years, as it was found that the disease did not exist. One of the society's inspectors said ho found burns three inches in diame ter inside the horse's mouth. Manning admitted that he had burnt the animal, and said, "I have fired thousands, and I hope to fire many more." A veterinary .surgeon named Davis, who wa...
MOTH BEATS MAN [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 February 1914
MOTH BEATS MAN Ingenuity in insects has never been more remarkably illustrated than in a discovery just mado by an entomologi cal expert at Histon. -in Cambridge shire (says "The Daily Kxpress"). ; One of the greatest pests which fruit growers in this country have to con tend with is the winter moth. It be gins to appear in October, and the fe male, whose wings are very short and quite unadapted to fight, climbs tho trunks of the fruit trees and deposits her eggs. These hatch out in the spring, and the caterpillars soon devour tfie young leaves. Hitherto fruitgrowers have in Sep tember placed round each fruit tree a band covered with a sticky substance, and when the female moth, climbing up the trunk, comes to the band, she is held fast by the sticky substance. Recently, however, the female moth has been found from time to time above tho band, and the mystery lias been how she could have got there. The en tomological expert of Messrs Chivers and ?ons, the well-known fruit growers of...

The Heart of a Girl. By HENRY F/.RMER, Author of "The Money-LeiiUer," "12b Quiitry Street," "Dunilage." eic (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER .VIII.—Continued. Queenie's manner of accepting Mi chael Thome's oiter of marriage wat indeed unconventional. She had im molated herself 011 the fanv-ly altar for the family's sake, or perhaps for the sake of one member of the fam ily—her mother. She might have re fused Thorr.e, and left her father. Beryl, and lier brother to fend for themselves; left Philip to pay the penalty cf his theft. Quite frankly, she had grown to hate her father; she despised her brother. Beryl she loved; but Beryl with lier training would have been in a position to earn her Jiving independently o1 Thorne. But her H.other's life depended 011 freedom from anxiety, constant atten tion, anil comfortable surroundings. Thome had supplied the wherewithal llad Queenie been free to earn her living she would have had *1 commer cial Value of about thirty to thirty five shillings a...
ENGLAND AND GERMANY CEASELESS HUMAN TIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 February 1914
ENGLAND AND GERMANY CEASELESS HUMAN TIDE. Hero Is a clover article by Mr F. W. WUe, the Berlin correspondent of "Tho Daily Mail," which shows th"b remark able TignUieanee of the Night Train lo Berlin. K I It shows how great world movements may be happening under our very noses without anybody realising what they mean—not even the scaremongers. 'Mf I had a mandate to lay the foun dations of a treaty of peace and good will between Great Britain and Ger many I should not choose for a back ground Mr Carnegie's mirrored temple of brotherly love at the Hague, or stately Westminster Hall, or the his toric Congress Room of the Imperial Chancellor's palace, says Mr Wile. I should put my friendship plenipotenti aries in the Flushing train at Victoria at 8.35 some fine evening, or at 1.5 at Friedrichstrasse in Berlin in the after noon. I should require them to take note of what was going on around and about them, for my case for an Anglo German entente would rest primarily on what is done arid...
A Checkered Career. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 February 1914
A Checkered Career. Quito recently there passed away, at a. N.SAV. State asylum for the desti tute, Mr. Daniel O'Connor, ;i gentle man who in his time had tilled no in conspicuous place in the political his tory of that State. Ho began life as assistant to his father, a. prosperous butcher. Mut lie toon demonstrated an extraordinary command of language, capable of rising, at times, to genuine oratorical power. Add to this, unfail ing liberality, and the ability to be come " hail fellow well met," regard less of expense, with all and sundry, it is not surprising that he soon became very popular, and that his popularity, and his ability to talk effusively, at a moment's notice, on any given subject, became a valuable political asset. He was Postmaster-General under Sir John Itobcrtson, and afterwards under Sir llenry Parkes. But when, although a pronounced Freetrader, he offered his services to a city electorate as a supporter of the Protectionist Minis try of SirJolm See, ho was defe...
PRINCE BUELOW'S BOOK WHY THE KAISER WENT TO TANGIER [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 February 1914
PRINCE BUELOW'S BOOK WHY TIIK KA1S1CU WIS NT TO TAXUIICK ! The JJvrlin newspapers publish sev eral extracts from Prince IUieknv's IxioU on "(Jermany under tli«» rei^n of the Kuipefor William." which is to be puhii.-hed in IVrlm (rays the Hciiin correspondent of "The Daily Kxpivss") As "The JCxpre.'vT' lias already slated, the work t»i* the former Imperial Chan cellor includes no sensation. nop even any revelation. l>ui is is interesting a a record of fiermany's recent history. The ex-i!hanrellor J a at pains to ox plum and justify his attitude during the earlier sta^e of the Morocco crisis, and explains that fJermany insisted on having an international conference at .Mu'eciias because the simple nnd un hindered annexation of Morocco by France would have been a death-blow to Germany's prestige with all Moslem countries, whom the Kaiser had sol emnly promiried constant protection unci friendship.

WAIL OF THE BANK CLERK MAX WHO SHOVELS SOVEREIGNS [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 February 1914
WAIL OF THE BANK CLERK MAX WHO SHOVELS SOVEREIGNS There is a common fallacy in the public mind that the bank clerk has a soft job, and an easy time (says "One of Them" in "The Daily Express"). The tradition is that he wears a morning coat and top hat, travels "first," leisurely strolls into the pala tial portals of his business abode about 10 a.m., and leaves at 4 sharp. It will doubtless take time to eradicate this traditional figure from the public mind ind put in its place the bank clerk as he really is—a hard-worked toiler whose hours are long, and whose pay is generally quite inadequate to keep up the respectability expected of him. It must be remembered that the small percentage of managerships and higher appointments are reserved, in most cases, for those who have friends at court—the court of directors. The ordinary young man, upon entering the service of a bank, can only look for ward to at least 40 years' hard labor. If he should reach the age of 65 he may be permitted to ...
