Marston Dramatic Company. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 28 March 1914
1Marston .Dramatia Companiyy. We are requested by the manage-. ?nent of the above company to inform our readers that a per formance of Robertson's comedy 'David Garrick? will be given in the Town IHall on Easter Saturday, followed byr a farce entitled 'My Turn Next." It will be remem bered, perhaps, that this company presented 'David Garrick" in Queenscliff eight years ago, on which occasion the piece took re markably well. The company has been altered in some respects since 1906, but three of the parts taken then will still be in the same hands, Garrick being represented by Mr Shennen, Ingot by Mr Mayne, and Brown by Mr George. The part of Ada Ingot will be in the hands-of Miss Oriel Bloomfield, who made herself so popular last year in the company's production of 'Saved,' when she appeared in the comedy part of Mrs Merewether. An announcement will appear next Saturday in our business columns..

THE FARM. ------f--+ TOMATO GROWING EXTRA ORDINARY. The "Internation Horticultural Grade Journal" of October 30th, 1912, publishes the following very in teresting article upon tomato grow ing by Mr. W. P. Vanding, of Guern sey :-"In the last week of March; 1912, I planted one house, 120 by 20 feet. For thirteen years my ground has not seen either a fork or-spade. I never dig my ground in any of my green houses. The last 13 years .1 have invited once a year all Guern sey growers and others. This year my house bearing this crop was opened to the public the whole of the first week in July. I always make it a point to show the tomatoes on the plants previous to offering the seeds for sale. This year I have beat all previous records as to a heavy crop. I announced this crop ias being grown without any manure whatever. This wa4aa mystery to all growers. I never dig manure in the ground, since I" never dig it, but every crop I give two heavy liquidings with well-decay ed horse manure and w...

Hopkins, Author of "On Four Brass Plates," etc., etc. 'J PART 12. OHAPTER XVII.-(Continued.) One day Helen received a letter that made her heart leap. "We are coming to England," wrote Abingdon. "Burton is doing splen didly, physically, but;he has grown restless again. He is still looking for that girl. This is troublesome here. for all the women have black eyes and black hair-that is, most of the ,pretty ones. Once in a while we sere a very light blonde, but these are apparently no better to Burton than the brunettes. I would like to try again the effect on him of a. girl with blue eyes and dark brown hair." There was great chattering over this. Mr. Brooke sat for a long time listening. He had heard considerable about the doctoib anr-t4ij queer pa tient of late, since the dlays got cold enough to keep him indoors more. "You two young ladies do a gr...

BRIDES IN QUEER PREDICAMENTS. Strange Honeymoons that led to Happiness. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 4 April 1914
BRIDEs IsN QUEER PRE DICAM ENTS. Strange Honeymoons that led to Happiness. "Happy is the bride that the sun shines on," runs the old saying, the dee-;er meaning of which,' according to some people, is that every mis hap at a wedding is an omen of bad fortune and- future unhappiness. fevertheless there are times when the most unusual wedding incidents and the unhappiest of honeymoons, have resulted in happy marriages Take, for instance, the case recently rep,.rted from Bordeaux of a young. man who, two years ago, was, like Edmue't Daites in "The Couut of Monte Cristo," arrested when about to sign the marriage contract with a girl to whom he had been be irothed for five years. The charge ror-ght against him was one oft forgery. The evidence was very strong, but the girl believed in her to er and insisted on the marriage. The authorities gave the necessary permission, and the couple were mar ried before the trial came off. AT THE ELEVENT-I HOUR. Never was there a stranger honey moon, t...

Recipes; C6old cream Is often useful for rough, ness of the skin. A very good recipe for mriaking it is the following :--Take a-quatt ter of an ounce of white wax and shred it into a basin, with one ounce of almond oil. Place the basin by the fire until the wax is dissolved; then add very slowly one ounce of rosewater, little by little, akid meanwhile beat smartly with a fork, to make the water incorporate, and cort" tinue. beating till it is accomplisbed ; then pour into jars ready for use.

SNEW ERA IN THE FAR EAST. The Fight for Commercial Supremacy., Mr. T. F. Millard's study of the Far East, c?ntaied in his book, "America and the Far Eastern Ques tion," recently published ir. New York is dominated by two, opposite notes, pessimism and a story of progress. He regards the situation that has arisen since the close of t?.o Russian war with alarm ; the Japanese conmm ercial policy. in Mannchuria is creating a situation. which may re sult in war between Japan and America,; he has nothing but criti cism for the existing statq of affairs. in Korea; he is convinced: that Ja pan aims at the domination. of China.

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 4 April 1914
HOUSEHOLDL HINTS. Honey in the comb eaten freely, is a nspital prevention of constipation. Scotch broth is greatly improved by the %ddition of a dessertspoonful of sugar. For patent leather or' glace kid boots, urnliture cream makes an excellent polish. Gloves should not be removed during a tall. Remove stains from light materials bya :ubbing with a piece of clean white ndiarubber. Flour thrown. upon burning paraffin will instantly extinguish it,- while water )nly spreads the flames. Maidenhair fern can be kept green for a conside.rable time by-singeing the ends Af the stalks. Alwayz shrink braid by wetting it thoroughly before putting on the gown, Dither for binding foot or trimming. A very good thing for a tired headache is to dip bandages in hot water, and bind firmly round the brow. Two to three folds of common- white muslin made wet, and ironed to dry, makes a nice stiff lining for print neck-. bands.

THE HUNGARIAN GENTLEMAN FARMER. Most Contented Individual in the World. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 4 April 1914
THE HUNGARIAN GENTLEMAI FARMER. Most Contented Individual in the World. Writing on "The Hungarian Gen tleman Farmer," in the "' Windsor,'! Baroness Orczy says : "He is the most contented indivi dual in the world, in spite of the fact, or because he knows absolutely nothing of what is going on around him. He does just read his news paper which arrives daily from Bu da-Pesth, and has vague ideas that all Atistrians are thieves and scpun drels, and that therefore a union with Austria is necessarily fatal to Hungary ; but, as a matter of fact, the political situation of his country does not interest him in the least; it does not affect the richness of his wheat oa the wpight of his maize heads. 'A keen sportsman, he is unham pered by any game laws. In Hun gary no one is allowed to carry a gun unless he owns so much land, and the owner pf land-and therefore of game-naturally makes his own laws for its preservation. !'His chief characteristic is hospi tality, almost barbaric in its lavish...

Other Universes: (By a Banker.). When . we go forth to contem plate the glories of the midnight skies we are apt to forget that that glittering array. of scintillating stars which in such lavish pro fusion so richly gem.' the canopied vault of heaven, is but a minute and mos.t infinitesimal portion of the vast stellar universe. For, in stead of the three or four thousand stars perceptible to the unaided visionl, the eagle eye of the tele scopic camera reveals nearly forty million shining orbs in the north ern hemisphere alone. Forty mil lion mighty flaming suns, many vastly more stupendous and more brilliant than our- own sun Arcturus is estimated to have a volume equal to more than half a million of our luminary, which though, to us so immense, is but a comparatively insignificaut star each sun doubtless with its at tendant planets, and each planet with one or more revolving satel lites. But sunk far down in the pro foundest depths of the fathomless abyss of illimitable. space, and...
