"LUCKY" COINS SENT TO CRICKETERS. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 20 February 1914
" LUCKY " COINS SENT TO CRICKETERS. Fortunate is the captain of a county cricket club, who has never received a " lucky " coin. For he is as "good at tossing" as was the man who owned-and used- a two headed halfpenny, or the Hon. F.S. Jackson when he captained many teams airainst the Australians. On six successive occasions he won the toss against Mr. Darling. On the seventh, at Scarsborough, he found the famous Australian in his tent, stripped to the waist, encircled by the Union Jack, and with his arms foldcd. ' Now," said he, " we will have a proper tossing, and the one who gets on the top wins the toss." "All right," said Mr. Jackson. Here, Georgie "- hailing a burly member of his team-"you come and toss this time." " Very well, then," returned Mr. Darling, hastily ; "we will toss in the old-fashioned way " Mr. W. G. Grace has had several spells of " bad luck " in tossing, and has in consequence been presented with 'lucky'" coins innumerable. Lo-d Hawke, when he captured Yorl-sh...
A Kaffir Tragedy. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 20 February 1914
A Haffir Tragedy. A glorious African moon was ris ing. TIhe veldt lay silvered be ineath its light, and the bush and trees seemed to glisten with frost. But it was not frost-the air was humid with the heat of the long day just past. It had been very hot, and in a low tiudt hut a Kaflir girl had lain -panting. Now and again she had reached for the cala bash of cool, sweet water near her heap of rugs andil skins. A little chiild lay by her side all day, a chubby, jolly little black baby. Sonieti aes it opened its black eyes and stared with fixed gravity at the mother.

Twenty-two men were tap tured, as well as a large ainouti of money and gambling parapher nalia. A squad of policemen in plain clothes were looking for small gamnes,'' which liour ish in the district. When they passed a manhole they saw a glint of light flash from a hole in the grating and then tdisappear. Quietly lifting the manhole cover, the police, with the aid of several lanterns. dropped down into the sewer, and after proceeding through it about sev-enty-five feet they carme to an opening which led into a large sub terranean room, w\\here the players were busy wagering their money. The Cathedral of St. Mark's, Venice, stands in a sqluare in the centre of the city, and w-hen the clock strikes twelve at noon, all the birds from the city and the regions around fly to the square and settle down.

How Panamas are Made. About .15,000 Panama hats are made annually by the wormen of Santa IBarbara, H onduras. The most tender palimn leaves, called " junco " leaves, arc selected land exposed to sulphur smoke. moisture, and the rays of the sun, and twwo dozen Icaves, costing id., are needied for each hat. A round block, called "hormna," is used as a form for making the crown.

TWO LEANING TOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 20 February 1914
TWO LIEANING TOWERlS. The leaning tower of Pisa is world famious, but there are two leaniing towers that are seldom heard of, though they are certainly umarvels of architecture and worthy of much attention. 'They are to be seen at Bologna, at a spot where live streets join. The taller of the two is 320ft. high, and is l4ft. out of the perpendicular. The shorter of the two is unfinished, amui, though only 35fift. high, is no less than 8ft. out of perpendicular. Tl'here is no doubt that if it had been cont pleted it would hate been the most marvellous leaning tower in the world. There is nothing beautiful about the towers, for they are built of ordinary bricks. Both, howe'er. are eight hundred years old, which speaks wonders for the workman ship. For what purpose they -were erected is a matter of doubt, but as watch-towers they cannot be beaten, for the view from the sum- 1 mit of the tallest is magnificent and extensive. A splinter which has been driven into the hand can often be ext...
Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 20 February 1914
There is no need to trouble about water and soap when cleaning a window. The easier way is to crush up a newspaper, dip it lightly in Iparaffin, and use as a polisher. The paraffin removes all dirt and stains very quickly, and the paper gives a splendid shine to the glass, which not only lasts a long time, but keeps fles from sesttling.

Courtship and Marriage. iThe first i four Sundays of Noveam Ier are observted as fete days in Rolland. They are known by the icurious nanes eview, Decision, 'Purchase, and L'ossessiott, and all re fecr to nmatrimnonial affairs, Novein ber in Ilolland being the month par excellence devoted to courtship and marriage, probably because the agricultural occupations of the year are over, and possibly because the lords of creation froni quite remote antiquity have recognised the plea santness of having wives to cook and cater for themu the long wiz ter. On Review Sunday everybody goes to church, and after service there is a church parade in every village, when the youths and maidens gaze uplon each other, but forbear to speak.

Iy tying the shoots from time .to time to the Ibars they are spread out and not crowded, as when a single stake is used. During the suanp r tho whole hurdle will lie covered with f lingo. When tying, use soft tu o-ply sth ing; bass or ralia. is not strong enough to carry the weight of the fruit. Tie loosely, ns the stems swell to a good thickness. All shoots below the fruits must be diligently removed as soon as they appear. Do not cut away leaves unless it may be here and there one that quite covers a bunch of fruit. Removing foliage from any iPlant only weakens it. Do not give too much water un less the ground is very dry. Put a mulch round the roots after the fruit is set, and water in the mnorn ing or evening when necessary.
How Horses and Sparrows Work Us Mischief. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 20 February 1914
How Horses and Sparrows Work Us Mischief. -+--- --- Recent scientific dliscoveries are gradually making us aware of the fact that the horse, long consider ed one of man's most useful friends, is in many ways one of the worst Renemies. Lockja.v is only one of the deadly perils for whtici the horse is directly responsile. It is now known that the germ of lockjaw, or "tetanus,'- as science terms it, is a comnaon inhabitant of the intestinal canal of the equine beast. When, as often hap pens, gardens are fertilised with horse manure, their soil becomes rich in tetanus miicrobes. It is very dangerous for chilcdren to run about barefooted in the streets, he i cause, if they happen to cut their feet, lockjaw germs are liablle to in fecet the wounds. It is estimated that 95 ier cent. of all the hIiuseflies in cities 'a:re i-red in stables where horses -are kept-horse manure bein' preferred by the insects to all other = stances as ineul'nting mnat-iril -;for their eggs. ecnce it is ot xooh t...

Her First Order. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 27 February 1914
Her First Order. C She had only recently been mar ried, and knew nothing about house keeping, and less about shopping, and she was now giving her first order. It was simply astounding but the grocer was a clever man and used to all kinds of orders, so he could inter pret rhen easily. This was fortunate ror her. "I want ten pounds of paralysed sugar," was the way she began, with a busincss-like air. "Yes'm. Anything else?" "Two quarts of condemned milk." "Yes'm." (He put down 21b. of "pulverlsed sugar" and two cans of "condensed milk.") "Anything more, ma'am?" "A bag of fresh salt-be sure it's fresh." "Yes'm. W'hat next?" "One pound of desecrated codfish." (He wrote glIbly "dessicated cod.") "Nothing more, ma'am? We have some nice horse-radish just in." The clever grocer had got on a!' right up to this point; but when sh, said. "No,, thanks; It would be of n, use to us; we don't keep a horse." hi fainted away.
More and the Maniac. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 27 February 1914
More and the Maniac., I In front of his Chelsea House Sir Thomas -More had a garden and gatehlouse, and as there was a plea sant view from the summit of the gatehouse, he used frequently to sit there, accompanied only by his dog. Here it was that he was found one afternoon by a wandering maniac, who crept - upstairs and founid the feeble old man dozing. "Leap, Tom, leap," he cried, and at the same time tried to throw him over the battlements. More had not physical strength enough to resist, but he had the wit to say, "Let u.s first throw this little dlog over." The man immediately threw down the dog. "Pretty sport," said the Lord Chancellor. "Now, go down aind bring him up ; then try aganin." While the madiani' went down for the dog, More made fast :thle door behind him, and so managed to hold the fort until deliverance came.
