ART OF COOKING FLAVOKINGS OF FLOWERS [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 13 February 1914

ART OF COOKING < . i ?FLAVOKINGS OP FLOWERS Having attacked nearly every sottled Idea In art, music, poetry, and drcs9, the Futurists are now trying to under mine our tastes In food (says the "Dally News"). They begin their con spiracy by telling us flatly that for over four centuries thero has not boen a new dish Invented. Mr Jules Manlcave, the Futurist chef, who Is responsible for this declaration, comes of cooking stock. His father and grandfather wero chefs, and his brother Is a chef. Mr Manicavo accuses ordinary expo nents of the art of cooking to-day of having tied themselves to the fetish of bay-leaf, parsley, mint, thyme, and onions for flavorings, to the complete neglect of the rose, the violet, the lily of the valley, the lilac, and the ver bena. "You cannot Imagine what a chicken a la lily of the valley is like," he cries In ecstasy-but It sounds highly appe tising. The Futurist chef has been advised by a doctor at Nice, where he Is now cooking, to bring his n...

RAPID LIFE NO TRUE SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 13 February 1914

RAPID LIFE NO TRUE SOCIETY. Life has become extremely sensa tional and "rapid" on Its outer surface; the women, who were the element cf "quietism" In the generation and generations which preceded ours, hav ing acquired a greater restlessness and a keener appetlto for show and move ment than the men, writes Mr H. W. Masslngham In the '"Dally News." Spiritual restlessness keeps pace with his physical Instability. A cloud of new doctrines, expedients, remedies, enthus iasm, aspirations, and exhalations of the perturbed mind of the age Alls the air. It Is hard to keep men's minds on ends' which they really desire; so ion fused is the Intelligence, and -so per turbed the conscience, of the directing or the enjoying multitude. A certain superficiality and light headedness characterise the philan thropies as well as the self-seeking of our times. Politics are becoming singu larly bitter in. their expression and highly organised in their form; but (lie dividing lines of parties are not very...

IMMORALITY AND TRADE STATEMENT BY SOCIAL PURITY WORKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 13 February 1914

IMMORALITY AND TRADE ?STATEMENT BY SOCIAL PURITY WORKERS.

PERFORMING ANIMALS CRUELTIES IN TRAINING [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 13 February 1914

PERFORMING ANIMALS CRUELTIES IN TRAINING Many allegations were made against trainers at a meeting held last night in tho Kensington Town Hall to pro test against cruelty to performing animals (reports "The Dally Telegraph" December 16). The audience, of whom the majority were ladles, indicated un mistakably that they felt strongly on the matter; but a few of those present, huaded by Captain Woodward and Mr Ginnett, made vigorous protests against certain of the charges of the speakers on the ground of their vagueness. A number of letters were read from sympathisers, among them being: Lord Morley of Blackburn: I can only say that I have the most intense ab horrence of all performances that in volve helpless animals in wanton suf fering. Mr C. Bernard Shaw: A performing animal trained by kindness would be just as intolerable and unnatural a spectacle as ono trained in the usual way. Mr Jerome K. Jerome: My objection to tho performing quadruped is the in jury he causes to the human bipe...

POTTED MUSIC TIME'S GREAT CHANGE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 13 February 1914

POTTED MUSIC TIME'S GREAT CHANGE. Only a fow yearn ago a piano was . little moro than a piece o£ furniture, saya the "Atlantic Monthly." Sometimes ' the daughter of tho houso tinkled scales upon it, or a col legian son pounded out "Whistling Rufus," or the "Washington Post;" but for the most part It stood silent, majestic, like an inanimate footman, testifying with polished rosewood to the opulence and taste of Its possessor. That. Is alt cliaftged now; pianos are no longor silent; thanks to tho perfor ated music-roll, tliey give tongue un ceasingly.

WOMEN PLUMBERS [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 13 February 1914

WOMEN PLUMBERS While 86 women are described In the latest census returns In Great Brit- I aln, as plumbers, It Is significant that all but nine are 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 relativea. There is only ono woman plumber in tho Post-odice Directory, and a "Daily News" representative, inqulr-. ing at her place of business at Plm lico, 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 was not prepared to undertake the actual manual labor In separable from that occupation. Plumbing Is a man's work. The rep resentative wn3 romlnded, and while there are women who are known as decorators, or otherwlso connected with trades usually regardd as essen tially occupation for men, It will be found that It Is the men who do...

ALPINE JOY PARADISE OF SNOWS [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 13 February 1914

ALPINE JOY PARADISE OF SNOWS "Who can forget tho seven miles of glacier that he descended in one un broken motion?" asks Mr Arnold Lunn, In the course of an article in "The Cornhlll Magazine." "Tho slope was so even and unchang ing that he seemed to be standing still while the valloy glided upwards and .the bounding cliffs moved by to a ^lately measure. Then slowly the earth lost Its swiftness. There was a slight pressure on the soles of his feet, as the glacier stopped moving and the snows came to rest. But these thlngB must be felt. "I can never look from the windows of a great hotel, out on to the snows of old adventure, without a quickening of the pulse and an over-mastering de sire for tho seerct and-silent valleys where gymkhanas cease from troubling anil the turkey trots no more. Just as surely as autumn calls tho swallow to the south, so the shortening of the days carries a warrant from the white Paradise whoso magic casements reveal some vision of ultimate beauty.

A BRAVE MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 13 February 1914

A BRAVE MAN. The history of ? the Du Ponts of Delaware, founders of the powder busi ness in America, lives and breathes in the very air of high, firm courage. Alexis I. du Pont was killed in the big- explosion in 1837 at the Brandy wine works, and La Motte du Pont was blown to death at the Rcpauno works in 1884. Following' a compara tively recent explosion at the Hagley Mills on the Brandvwine, Victor du Pont 3rd is credited with carrying a flaming gunriy-sack out of the danger zone. This is the most recent instance of the Du Pont family characteristic. Fifty years ago Alexis I. du Pont, son of Eleuthere Irenee du Pont de Nemours, whose natural inclinations for scientific pursuits were responsible cor the foundation of the parent plant on the Brandywinc, was in one of the mixing.houses, trying to shift a heavy wooden box. In sliding across the floor the box generated a spark, and in an instant the room was ablaze. As it was Saturday, only a few | pounds of . powder remained in the h...
