WOMEN PLUMBERS While 86 women are described in the latest census returns in Great Brit aln, as plumbers, it is significant that all but nine arp widows. The fact seems to be that of practical women plumbers there are none. The 86 wo men in the census returns are either managing the business of their late husbands or are in partnership with relatives. There is only one woman plumber in the Post-office Directory, and a "Daily News" representative, inquir Ing at her place of business at Plm tico, gathered that while she was fully capable of doing the work of a prac tical man, having learned in the course of many years all that a plumber should know. she wa0 not prepared to undertake the actual manual labor in. separable from that occupation.

SO RA PS. On our fourth page will be found the report of the Cranbourne Shire Council; also trial of the " Eclipse" potato digger at Koo Wee Rup. Mr C. F. Affleck, secretary, is out with his prize list for tile WVarragul show, to take place on Wednesday, March 4th, and good prize money is offered. There is a high jump for horses of '5, but only 3os is offered for pony high jump. This might well be increased, as the first prize for a Yorkshire hog is 3os, and surely a high jump competition among champion ponies is much more interesting and popular with the public. Entries close with the secre tary, \Varragul, on Saturday, Feb. 28th, but late entries will be received up to 3rd IMarch, on payment of late fees. Prize lists may be had at this ofhice. In connection with the Church of England, Koo-wee-rup, a grand show of flowers, fruits and farm and garden produce, is to ble held on t7th April, which gives ample time for prepara tions.

Ty¢- :" .?J--.l.o ,?· ~rrb l?.,h, wit illness, had never had a doctor attend him, had never partaken of medicine of any kind, and never even had the toothache.

So happy a condition is certainly enviable.

Love Songs of the North. SERENADE. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 19 February 1914
Love Songs or the North. ?. i RRENADE° The late moon lingers behind the hill, - Sleeps the world in its slumbrous gleam. Thy vines lean close, thy birds are still, The white rose dreams on thy window sill And the rill ripples in its dream. Then let the downy, white wings of sleep, On thy tender eyelids drooping, S eal thy rest with touches soft and deep; In the dowe thy white acaias sleep That with burden of bloom are stooping. Dream on, though thy lover lingers hele, In envy of favor'd roses That climb to thy windlow and he so near, And the maonlight that wsithout afear S : May enter where love reposes. .. But is sleep thy lovely eyelids eoee, Or if waking's dreams be dearer, S Then let some loving thought of rae Slip 'twixt thy lids and sleep to be , A bond to hold thy lover nearer. Dream on of me, oih miy Love, dream on, Till the rose of day is brealiog, : : Till thle drooping moon has slipt and gone, Though thy p~aeful sleep that comes at dawn When:only t5h, birdd are waking.

Parlor Magic. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 19 February 1914
Parlor Inagic. A hat is borrowed; likewise a cigar. The performer breathes on the latter to mes merize it, and declares that when so mcs. merised he can compel it to stand upright on S the crown of th halt. oIe endeavors to make it stand up accolrdingly, at first without sui ccss, but presently the cigar does actually stand upright, self.supported, on the crown. At comnmandl it will bow to the company, salute the ladies on the right the ladies no" the left, and so on. The performer then asks f, r a little music, and begins to move the hat about, still crown upward, first in one hand Sthen in the other. The cigar retains its vertical pesition, but sways about, sometimes to one side, sometimes to the other, us if endeavoring to keep time to the music. At Lany moment the performer can request n spectator to take the cigar from the hat and to satisfy himself that it is not nattached in any way. The seeming mystery rests on the S use of a very simple piece of apparatus--a little rod abou...

STOLEN PICTURE RECORD OF ACCUSED. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 19 February 1914
STOLEN PICTURE RECORD OF ACCUSED. Perugia's pretence that he stole the 'iloconda" from the Louvre with a :lew restoring some of the master badly chosen tsay~s ig Na Xp~oleof Is dent of "The Daily Telegraph" of De cember 16). He does not seem to know that the "Gioconda" happens just to be one of the paintings of the Louvre that were never in the possession of Italy. It was acquired from the artist by Francols I., King of France, for the sum of 4000 gold ecus. and had been at Fontainebleanll and Versailles long be fore it entered the Louvre. That Peru giLn simply hope to make money out of the theft seems to be proved by the fact that before he carried off the pic turo he collected the names of those who he thought might be likely pur chasers. Thus two little notebooks on which he inscribed his washing bills and found in his room contain significant inscrip tions. In one of them, dated December .2S, 1910, that is to say, nine months before the theft, he entered the names and addresses ...

NORWAY MODERN INFLUENCE "I have Just received a letter from a friend at present travelling in Norway, where she has not been for twelve years." says the editor of "The Vine yard." "It was not written with any idea of publication, but so finely and sharply does this letter, from a coun try which is blessed with one of the noblest peasantries in the world, point the evils which "The Vineyard" is out to fight, and the good which it exists to defend and encourage, that I venture, in good conscience, to print it without her permission." "It Is luke a dream to find oneself again in this romantic land. and in one day we have already seen so much that it seems long since we left home? The crossing was horrid in every way. but we had some quiet hours in smooth water before we arrived in the early morning, and Stavanger with its clean. many-colored wooden houses rising out of the still fjord, and the encircling mountains stealing out of the morning mist restored one.
