THE BUSINESS MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 13 March 1914

THE BU8INE33 MAN. By Mr«. A. M.

Personally I am not very keen on the idea of "managing" anyone. The word does not conjure up any very pleasant suggestions, for we all know (lie picture which is invariably drawn of the managing woman-a picture which leaves no doubt in the inlnd of anyone that she "manages" chiefly to make husband, children, and every one about ber generally uncomfort able. I should be inclined to say that the best way to manage a husband is to let him manage himself, for, while every man likes to bo fussed over and spoilt, when it comes to all-im portant questions he generally pre fers to settle things for himself. I am not suggesting that he does not like to ask advice from his wife, a...

Tho person wlio crosses u bridge on a train does not see the mas sive stone pisrs which rise from the water. Even it lie did stfe the piers ho would .still have little idea us to what it nil means. Perhaps ho imagines that tho piers go down through tho water to the bottom of the river, where, l>y some mira culous means, they find a firm foundation. He little realises that what he sees towering out ot the water is only a small .fraction of the pier and that its foundation is one hundred feet below the- surfaco resting on tho strong bed stratum which underlies Memphis. ?

Camphor-Petrol for Motorists. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 13 March 1914

Camphor-Petrol for Motorists. T Abroad, where great pride- and Just pride-Is taken in the mileage.: 'per gallonof fuel that can bo obtaluod, u small band of motorists recently lias been ex perimenting wllli gum camphor us a "dopo" "for petrol. Usually, about OHO ounce of camphor is placed in.five gallons of petrol, and It Is slated by llioso who uso the mixture that the operation of their motors Is much superior with the camphor in the potral than without it. One motorist oven goes so far as to claim that lie has been able to increase his mileage per gallon as much as 20 per cont., though It' would seem that the increase cannot be due to the uso of the camphor alone. The idea is not now, of course, for Curtiss, at present of aeroplane fame, used It a number of years ago in his racing motor cycles, and it is said ho sometimes uses It now in his aeroplane en gines. The modern dairy farmer has dis carded the old-fashioned milk pail, and - uses- a ? closod In pail like this. It keeps al...
