SOME GOOD ADVICE. GLAMOUR OP THE CONCERT PLATFORM. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 25 February 1910
SOME GOOD ADVICE. GLAMOUR OP THE CONCERT PLATFORM. A correspondent in ''Musical Opinion" for October writes: The glamour of. the concert^ platform is second only to that of the stage. And in a similar manner it focusses the as pirations of a number of young people With average musical ability; I do not wish to call them mediocrities. Plat- . form work seems so easy! All you have to do is to sing one or two songs or to play one or two solos—and, in the case of ladies, wear bewitching frocks the while—and managers and agents esteem it an honor to bo permitted to throw the guineas into your lap. If I were consulted by a young .student as to the prospect of taking, the world by storm, my first question would be: "Have; you any social or family influ ence; what kindly disposed bigwigs do you know?" If none, then I would ask, "Have you enough money to pay your footing or purchase influence?" Should this also be negatived, I would wash my hands of any further discussion in the matter. If, ...

Secretary of State for War, ivlio at Norwich laid the foun dation stone of new cavalry barracks to be built there, was entertained at a lun cheon presided over by the ex-mayor, Lieutenant-Colonel Buxton., Responding; to the toast of his health, Mr Arnold-Forster 'sa!id that the oc casion was both exceptional and im portant, and might be the beginning of a new epoch in the history of '■ the housing of the Army. The new bar racks were to be built on a site that had been presented to the nation by the city and locality, and he believed that that example was likely to be followed else where. He continued— The officers and men in the cavalry j ought to be flower of our Army. Well, j it so happens that we have just j sanctioned a new organisation for the ; cavalry—an organisation which for years j I have wished to see introduced. This > ! This will be the first barrack built under | the new system. j We a...

ALPINE HEROINE. SAVISS HE!' LOVER. The announcement that Mile. I}ela chenal was married in August to Joseph Kobin, a French shepherd of Hauto Savole, recalls (writes a correspondent of the London "Daily Mail") a pretty Alpine romance. About this time last year the young couple were driving their Hocks of goats down to the valley on the slope of the mountain Paray de Tardevant, when Kobin noticed that some goats still re mained near the summit. Instead of making a detour Ttobin took a short cut up a "chimney" of the cleft in the roek, In spite of the entrea ties of his companion. I-Io had hardly reached a spot half-way up the "ehii.: ney" when an avalanche of stones thundered down, sweeping him off his legs and hurrying him downwards to wards the prcclpice. Wile. Delachonal, without a moment's hesitation, ran to the "chimney," right in the track of the falling stones, and caught her lover In her arms. At the brink of the abyss the bravo peasant girl managed to stop, and drag ging tii...

HOW TO TELL A DRUNKEN MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 25 February 1910
HOW TO TELL A DRUNKEN MAN. ! Mr E. A. Humphreys, of. Northenden, ! recently described at the Stockport Police j Court his test for drunkenness as ap I plied to threft men accused of" being; ! drunk on licensed premises. He made thnm shut their eyes :iric! walk back wards, and ho said that few men could do it when sober, and if they succeeded they were certainly not drunk. They had also to write their names with a quill pen, to walk a straight line, and to stand still with their heels together. Ho ac cepted the definition in -Murray's diction ary that a drunken man was one who had "taken intoxicating liquor to an ex tent affecting steady self-control," and described tin: symptoms as "staggering when walking, Incoherent speaking, and lack of reasoning power." There is no doubt that the tests named are applic able to those in the condition described, but, as the "Lancet" has pointed out, they do not cover those cases where | there is no dividing line between drunk enness and brain misc...

TAKE MOKE MILK IN TEA. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 25 February 1910
TAKE MOKE MILK IN TSA. Tannin in tea is, as we have often pointed out, the cause oC the beverage disagreeing with some people who drink It to excess. But there is a more or less reliable remedy even tor this. The use of plenty of milk with tea !s a wise precaution, and must be.-regarded as a sound proceeding, since, as the "Lancet" argues, the proteids o£ milk destroy as tringency, and probably prevent the otherwise injurious action of tannin on the mucous membrane of tliu stomach. In the intestinal juice the proteids are sep arated, and the tannin probably combines with the sodium salts. The immoderate drinking- of tea is an unquestionable evil, but, on the whole, our contempor ary thinks, as wo do, that the evils of tea-drinking have been exaggerated. The real difficulty is to convince people that a lightly-drawn infusion gives them their money's worth, for a lightly-drawn infu sion dissolves the tho.'ne, the most essen tial constituent, which is almost as quickly soluble in hot w...

THE PSYCHIC VAMPIRE. SOCIETY OBSESSED BY OCCULTISM. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 25 February 1910
THE PSYCHIC VAMPIRE./ SOCIETY OBSESSED BY OCCULTISM. "Society," observed Candida, as she thoughtfully twirled a gleaming' topaz ring engraved with a falcon round he? finger, "is rioting in the psychic craze. J.t is lost in ail abyss of misty occultism, obsessed with an insane desire to know the unknow able." "What! the modern athletic girl, the young Amazonian of the golf links treading the perfumed chambers of Isis?" "Even the golfing girl is not quite without woman's, curiosity," retorted Candida serenely. ''The fact " is a dreadful fate has overtaken the" psy chic movement. Actually it has .lived to have popularity -thrust upon it. Ghostly manifestations which were , onco considered only fit and proper subjects for the pages of Christmas annuals have become topics of daily, conversation. "Clubs and societies for the devel- ■ opmcnt of the occult arc flourishing, ,■ selcct 'cirlcs' are being held nightly/ in Mayfair and lielgravia, -and fash- , ionablc audiences in evening dress \...
MONT ST. MICHEL. AN HISTORICAL MONUMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 25 February 1910
MONT ST. MICHEL. AN HISTORICAL MONUMENT. Uno o! the most interesting, if not the most interesting, historical ' monuments of Franco is, without doubt, the Mont St. Michel, which lies exactly on the border-lino be tween Normandy nnd Brittany. But St. Michel is more than a mount, it I is a city, one might ovon say a small country, although its length ■ and breadth, roughly speaking, arc something less than half a mile by a. j quarter of a mile. The rock upon j which it is built now forms at low ■ tide a sort of peninsula, bocauso of the dyke which connects it with tho 1 i mainland, but in the olden days, when the Mont St. Michel was one ! of the strongholds of France, it was ! an island at high tide and a penin- I sula when tho tide was out. There is • no stranger and more wonderful sight in Europe than that which one sees 1 when one stands right at the top of the iUount in the Cathedral Tower at low tide, and seeks to distinguish tho low-lying lands in the far distance across wiles a...

THE OID JEWISH QUARTER. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 25 February 1910
THE OID JEWISH QUARTER. Before Spitaflelds (writes the "West minster Gazette"), the principal scene of the disturbances arising out of the Day of Atonement, became a favorite resort of the Jews, the district extending along both sides of Gresham street to Basing hall street and Old Jewry on the east was the chief Jewish quarter in London. The first synagogue in the metropolis was at the north-west corner o£ Old Jewry, v--hich Stow describes as "a street so called of Jews sometime dwelling there and near adjoining." In USD on the coronation day of Richard X., great num bers of Jews were massacred here. The same writer records the fact that in 1262 there were slain in London 700 Jews, from one of them having forced a Chris tian to pay more than 2s a week as in terest upon a loan of 20s.

IE left they will soak into the carpet and be very j difficult to remove. | Do not set earthen dishes in a hot) oven or upon tile stove. It cracks the Blazing and renders them unfit for use. The smell of such dishes is very dis agreeable, and cases of poisoning have been traced to their use. A candle may be made to lit any candlestick if )t is dipped into very hot water. This softens the wax, and it may then be easily pushed into a candlestick "ivhfch'otherwise would be too small, and it will bo neatly and firmly hold.
