THE GARDEN. SOME OF OUR ENEMIES. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 18 April 1914
THE GARDE N. ----+------ BOME OF OUR ENEMIES. (From "The Sydney Daily Tele graph.") It is always an easy matter to write about our friends. Not so in re gard to our. enemies. We get no good out of the latter company, and, as a rule are not too anxious to say much about them. They do us injury, and many a time bring on no end of trouble. Still there are times when even an enemy must intrude. Garden ers cannot afford to pass him by. We must know him intimately, and must be for ever on his (or her) trail. In most of our life-walks the enemy is held at arms' length. We unfortunate people are placed in the position of being for ever after subjects that bring us no good. And of late our enemies have had a good fling. They have taken a full measure, and have 'been doing the thing handsomely. Many of us have been warring all we knew. Some have held the pests in check, while others have found themselves with all the losses on their side. These notes have been put together to give our read er...

FLYING MACHINES., Can you bear us from here To a sunnier sphere,: Where taxation they know not a word of Where they -furnish free meals Of .roast pork or stewed eels, And dyspepsia's never been heard of Where nobody ever gets jilted or shot ? Oh, can you fly thither ? Alas, you can not ! Could you soar right away With our troubles to-day,, You'd delight every strephon and Chloe ; But the Flying Age comes, And brings us no plums`,, And the pudding of life is still doughy. So why should I fly? I will stay where I am, And go for a twopenny ride on' gl tram.. -Cbulsofi.
THE LOSS OF ETIQUETTE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 18 April 1914
THE LOSS OF ETIQUETTE. Once upon a time in .Yngland no. young girl would have dared to ac cept as much as a packet of choco lates or a posy from a younig man. Now he may send her .a confectioner's or a florest's shop, his motor-car, andu his box at the opera. So much have we taken from America. Never theless the privileges of liberty carry their risks. The increased liberty of the one sex reacts upon the other, and helps to make breaches in: the ramparts. There is often vei? little distinc tion between the habits and manners of the tw6 sexes. They talk the sa?ie lingo, employ the same ideas, and have the same sports anid pas times. How i i?it- practicable to maintain an' ifreproachable system of etiquette between such ? The modern: young man takes his cue from' the' moderni young woman, and joins her in ignoring hher femininity.. She's a "jolly good sort," a "nice chap," and other horrors in slang. The fact is that we must invest our sexual relationik with a certain aloof ness and r...

Too Weak To Walk DUE TO WORM FEVER. RELIEF AFFORDED BY COMSTOCK'S "DEAD SHOT" WORM PELLETS. "My little girl; now four and a half years of age, was suffering for over four years," writes Mrs. F. We!ss, of 96 Redfern - st.. Redfern, Sydney, N.S.W. "She appeared to have con sumption of . the bowels, and I took her to thie S- hospital, u ý where they f prescr i b e d powders which I gave her, but did not seem to do any good. I then discovered she had Worn' Fever, and tried vari ous medicnCs. which, although they caused her to pess scme worms, only afforded tcmporary relief. Oue day I received one of your books describ ing what Comstock's 'Dead Shot' Worm Pellets had done for other children, and I straight away pro cured a packet.

A PINERO STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 18 April 1914
A PINERO STORY. The, latest Pinero story is of a conversation which was overheard at a gathering of theatrical people. "I am told," said one of the ladies pre sent, "that Mr. - (menLioning a certain comedian) is a man who writes to his wife by every post." "Yes," said a well-known actress, '"e writes a lot of flummery about the aginy of absence, but he has never sent her a penny. Do you call that kindness 7" !'l)ecidedly i" said Sir Arthur. "Unremitting kindness." - " Daily Sketch." Oily marks on the paper which defy the crumb cure may be got rid of by mixing a little pipeclay into a cream painting this mixture over the spot, allbwing it to dry thoroughly, and then wiping it oft. A good way to whiten clothes that have become a bad colour is to put two or threef I'slices of lemon in the copper with the clothes. The rind should be left on. They will make 'the clothes much whiter, and will re move all the stains from pocket handkerchiefs, ehildren's pinafores, etc.

SSQMEi HEALTH PROVERBS. *A An open window is better than an open grave." "Warm rooms have killed emore peo iple than ever froze to death." "Wire screens in the windows may keep crape from the door."

Sunday Corner. The Peacemaker's Beatitude. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 18 April 1914
Sunday Corner. The Peacemaker's Beatitude. It is very easy if we talk to one who has a little distrust of another or. a little bitterness against an other, to:say a word that will in crease the distrust or add to the bit terness. We like to approve and justify the one with whom we are speaking, and in so doing we are apt to confirm him in his bitterness or sense qf wrong. Let us be on ofir guard that we do not unintent ionally widen little drifts into great breaches. Let us seek ever to be peacemakers. There are no other beatitude whose blessing is more radient than that of the peace= makers--" they shall be called sons of God." .. . .. . :-- : - -- -" , i

For some months, and especially .as:the 'season: is at its close, after heavy anid continuous traffc, if has beein frilly realised by the cohnicil that special attention is necessary to be paid the: roads of the borough. The continuous dry weather is. partly responsible for' the present bad state of the roads -metal had- become :.-powdered by. the traffice and was blown away by the first winds, until in maily plaees the crown of the road has almost disappeared.. To restore, their con dition and put them into more last ing ordeir, .is now the aim and resolve of the council. To. do the work effectively will cost a great amouit, far more than put aside br '"tilii Wo"6rks in the borough, estimates; but though such is the case, having to be done, councillors .have come. to a tacit understanding. that all other works, within.. the borough will have to be disregarded, and the one aim will be to carry out in its entirety, or as neatly as possible, t...

"Give me plenty of salt. I like it, and it is good for my health., keep ing my bowels in first-class condition. "Please give me a good shelter from the icy winds and storms of sleet and snow.
