AMERICAN PRISOM REGIME FAVOURED CONVICTS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 16 March 1910
AMERICAN PRISOM REGIME FAVOURED CONVICTS. Acting upon, reports that wealthy men in gaol can sccuro all the comforts of home, tho Federal authorities have given orders that in. tho Federal pris ons, at least, rich and poor shall be treated just alike (cabled tho Now lork correspondent of tho 'Daily Telegraph' . 011 January 20). In the ease of persons awaiting 'trial or con /victed prisoners awaiting tho . decision of _ the Appeal Court, American public opinion is lenient, and nobody hero grudged the favours extended to Harry Thaw, for example, or, later still, to Mr. Charles W. Morse, the fraudulent banker, who was allowed to entertain his wire to a Christmas, dinner in his cell. Both w(ere allowed privileges such as would shock conventions oi- your side of tho Atlantic.

FRUIT INDUSTRY LIBELLED. VICTORIAN MINISTER'S PUERILITY. DISCUSSED BY HUON COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 16 March 1910
FRTJIT INDUSTRY LIBELLED. VICTORIAN MINISTER'S PUERILITY. DISCUSSED BY HUON ' COUNCIL. The . damaging and unwarrantable ' as sertions published in the Press recently concerning the shipments of fruit sent from Tasmaniathis season was the subject of discussion ot.,Monday's meeting of the Huon Council. Councillor Casey opened tne discussion by referripg to a letter published in the 'Mercury,' in which some of the un justifiable statements in ' question ap peared. He 'said it was stated that the whole of the Suevic shipment was branded 'not fit for pigs.' As a matter of fact, out of the 48,000 cases sent for ward in the steamer, only 300 cases'were marked unsound. The shipment included some of the finest fruit ever grown in Tasmania, yet they had the outrageous slurs he had referred to cast upon it.' Those statements would in all probability reach England before the fruit got there, and would inevitably mean loss to those who shipped in the steamer in question. He thought, it. was quit...
SIGNALLING BY SMOKE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 March 1910
SIGNALLING BY SMOKE. The author of 'The Life of a Fos sil Hunter' tells the following inci dent of his wandering among the Co manches of Texas, an Indian tribe that has preserved much of its ori ginal wildness of life and character. 'About nightfall I crossed Cach Creek, and saw at my right in a bend of the creek an elevated 'bench' on which a teepee was pitched. There were two Indians standing about, one a large, fleshy, good-natured man, the other thin, with large, prominent cheek-bones — a typical Comanche. A large flock of children ran out to meet me. I must confess that I felt a little uneasy at being so entirely alone and at the mercy of these In dians, but I made the best of it. As several turkeys were lying on the ground, I told the good-natured man tnat I wanted his squaw to cook me one of them for supper. This bhe pro ceeded to do. I put off going to bed until late, as I dreaded sleeping in the high grass where I left my saddle. 'After breakfast, as I started out for the t...
SIX WARNINGS TO AMATEUR AVIATORS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 March 1910
SIX WARNINGS TO AMATEUR AVIATORS. 1. Before going up make sure that the fuel-tank does not leak, as petrol shower baths are not yet popular. 2. Refrain from landing hurriedly on conservatories; they do not at all need extra ventilation. 3. Remember that it is possible to have 'a drop too much' when avia ting, even if you are teetotal. 4. Never take a chronically argu mentative friend up with you; you may fall out. . 5. Be warned against endeavoring to attract people's attention by drop ping spanners and loose pieces of en gine on them; they may object. 6. If you suddenly discover that the pterygordal aspect of the stabili ynng-planes fouls the torque of the p^SjJfcfiitershaft consequent upon the shock-absUrttBjJs being inadequate for the alternatingifeteral thrust of the carburettor — see aTdo3tbT-I .it's com pound aeromania. - --'r^T
BEAUTIFUL EYES. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 March 1910
BEAUTIFUL EYEsT It is a well-known fact that we do not- take sufficient care' of our eyes, and yet, when we come to think of it, how important it is to do all we can to preserve and beautify them. A fault we are most guilty of is straining them over fine work or small print, often in a bad light. The best thing for tired or weak eyes is to rest them whenever possible by closing them a few minutes at a time. 1 To brighten and strengthen the, eyes, there is nothing better than to fill a bowl with cold water, into which has been sprinkled a few drops of lavender oil, and to open and close the eyes in this for several minuteB. Eau de Cologne in. the same propor tion is also good, but apt to make some eyes smart. For a wash when the eyes have be come inflamed, an excellent remedy is a lotion of rosewater and zinc, which any chemist will make up for a few pence. For promoting the growth of the eyelashes, cocoa butter rubbed gently along the roots is a very good thing, also for the eyebrow...
Fond of Nails. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 March 1910
Fond of Nails. A certain Irish village character, noted alike for his habitual indolence, immoderate indulgence, and ready wit' was once approached by the parish priest, who desired a day's work donp. in his garden. 'Terry,' said he, 'if you work steady for me all day and drink nothing, I'll give you a glass at six o'clock, as well as the pay.' ' 'Done, yer riverence,' returned the other. 'I know ye're a man of yer worrud, an', plase the pigs, I'll be wan too!' He performed the day's work ac cordingly, and when he went to the kitchen door at sundown received his pay and a small wineglass, which his reverend employer handed to him al ready filled with whisky. After tossing off the thimbleful, he held the tiny vessel up quizzically, and remarked: 'An' how do they make them, yer riverence?' 'Why, they blow them, Terry,' an swered the unsuspecting cleric. 'Faix, thin, yer riverence,' replied Terry, with a twinkle. 'I'm thinkin' the man that blew that was short o' breath!' Aware that he ...
