Telegraph Humour. — i There aro several good examples J of telegraphic errors in an article, "Humour in the .Telegraph Ollice," In ' Chambers' Journal.'

It should have been of course, ".Meyers, and not Shadd." Many blunders of a local charac ter in the Australian Press might also he recorded, but sometimes these arise through the ambiguous wording of a message, as happened in the following case. A member of Parliament was to have made a speech at a certain town, and, being unable to do so because the heavy rains had damag ed a branch railway, he sent a tele gram us follows : " Cannot conic. Wash out on line." Tn a few hours the reply came : "Never mind. Bor row a shirt." Some years ago, when it was pro posed to subsidise" a, new steam ship line between Ca...

Concerning Charcoal. ONE OF THE MOST USEFUL HOUSEHOLD COMMODITIES. How many housewives look upon ciinrcoal as a valuable nccossity in the home ? few. Vet Ith uses are many. To begin with,, it is the best and cheapest disinfectant and de odoriser—in other words—charcoal is the best knotfri disease-catching* preventer and smell-ender. Tho smell of cabbage water is not. nice. A lump of charcoal in the saucepan prevents all odour. You may be afraid ?hat tho joint, or a piece of fish may go bad. Simply lay pieces of charcoal on them, and they will keep perfectly fresh. If, say, the fish has manifestly "gone/' Cook it just the same, but place in the fish saucepan two or three pieces of charcoal. The fish will bo as good as if but just cnught. A wire gauze or muslin bag. filled with charcoal, and hung in the lar der, will keep that important place perfectly sweet.

That is, milk (rom which n larger or smaller quantity of butter can be produced. "Most of our cattle yield milk which contains on the average nbout 3.7 per cent, of butter-fat ; but Jer seys yield milk containing on the average nbout 5 per cent. There are many individual fluctuations in both breeds, but these figures are nbout the average. In Ireland, as in other parts of Britain, there arc many Jer sey-Shorthorn crosses. During the last two or three yenrs we have been able to get the milk of a number of these analysed, arid it is found to contnin about 4.2' or 4.3 per cent, of butter-fat. on tlie average.

CHAPTER X. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 8 January 1914
CHAPTER X. Three (lavs after Barnes had ar rived at Crackingstone with Sir Pe ter, the situation stood thus : Barnes admired Edwina, and loved her splen did inheritance. He had never looked upon himself as the future Duke of Chiltern. His knowledge of aristo- I iratic institutions was too limited to allow him to speculate on the pro bable death of Lord Chester as the means of elevating him to one of the ) proudest peerages in England. In j fact, so far aa mere position went, j Barnes was well satisfied with that which he had. He lacked only money and lands, and these, asiie easily in ferred from Sir Peter's skilful re- j marks, he would win with Edwina's \ hand. As for Edwina, she confessed j to herself that Gerald Lovering, ! though he was certain to be a duke, I was not half so fascinating in. his j personality as Vane Prance. Prance • was impetuous and overpowering in ; his love—since she opene&lt;l the way for j him to be so. Barnes—or Lovering, j as she knew* him—was co...

Sup pose she does so, and becomes his wife. And then suppose the old duke (lies and the title goes to Chester, after all. This fellow has nothing." Sir Peter looked with pity on the man wbo could be so blind. "Why, hang it, Tom ! what's come over you ? Don't you know that even in that event Gerald is sure of the title ? Suppose Chester does get the title ; he can't live long, and Gerald Is next in line. In fact, there is no one else, Except these two, there is no one to save tho title from laps ing." "Chester might marry." "Let him," said Sir Peter, snap ping his fingers. "Let him marry. He will get a wife, that's all. I have thought that' all out, my dear bro ther. It is possible that he will mar ry. The duke has been at him for years to do so ; but I don't think— nature is against it—I' d...
