PUTTING BABY TO SLEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Brighton Southern Cross — 4 April 1914

PUTTING BABY TO SLEEP. Did you ever try to get a baby to sleep? Not an ordinary phlegmatic, spiritless baby that w~l fasten itself to the perforated end of a rubber cap slipped over a quart bottle of milk and vulgarly gorge itself into a gluttonish snooze; but a real lively, rollocking rascal of .a baby who doesn't intend snoozing away any more of hit ,aluable time than he has to. Thee have been evenings, I daresay, when the pleasure of putting baby to sleep has been yours: Your wife has had a sick headache, or site has wanted to run over to see her mother, or into one of the neighbours houses for some thing, and you have had to put the little pet to sleep after she has undressed him. Perhaps, if it is a first experience, you are rather glad of the chance to convince your wife that she has fallen into the habit of wasting a deal of time in getting that youngster to sleep evenings. You .a.ve always felt and's: that you could get him to sleep in a ~f:u?-i-f the time your wife spends A...

A FINANCIAL CONUNDRUM THAT DROVE A MAN TO HIS GRAVE. The following conundrum may be in teresting to your readers, writes R. H. Thompson, of Alabama, .U.S.A., to the "Notes and Queries" department of The NAewcastle Chronicle. I had a friend who died ofa financial conundrum, and although it is too late to do him any good, I would like to know the answer. He was a good fel low but he was unlucky. Besides he was a good deal of a fool. He invested all his smoney in Gloriad mining stock. He saw a great deal about it ih a newspaper of great former moralityand mnch pre vious virtue. He did isot stop to note that the stock was 95 percent. or more below par, nor inquire if anylaody-con" troling the financial columns of that paper had been presented with a block of Gloriad stock. He didn't do any thing but go and blow in his savings in Gloriad. The stock took a tumble before he did, andat the Sound-up he found himself with a large block of Gloriad which no body wanted, and no money. Believing ...

REMARKABLE PROPHECIES. [Newspaper Article] — Brighton Southern Cross — 4 April 1914

REMARlKAPBLE PROPIIECIES. A Transatlantic arithmetician stated somec years ago that the world would come to an end in 1880S thodghl Mother Shipton fixed the date a yefr or two later. This estimable lady's prophecy is said to have been written in 1485; and anticipates miany of the. wonder w.hich have come to pass since that remote period. She begins thus - "Carriages without horses shall go, And accident fill the world with woe; Around thelworld thought shall fly : In the tirinkling of an eye; SWater shall yet more wonders do, Now strange, yet shall be true," And- though it may be said -that accidents have been common :to humanity from the very earliest records, and that ,Mother Ship ton's reference to hydraulic- science is very vague, discoveries 'as to thoe applicationofl steam and electricity seeii to be foreshadowed iii her rhymes. ;;The world upside down siall be,: And gold be found at-the root of the are lines which have scarcely been founid true, for the solar system has conti...

"Am I, indeed ?" " You are !" " Oh, I thought you were the landlord of she house." " I am General Cass." " General Cass, of Michigan I" " Yes."

WHY. It is a pity that some people are not so quick with their hands as they are with their tongues. A farmer had a lazy labourer. One day he returned from market,and caught his man sound asleep under a tree. "What I" exclaimed the farmer, "asleep when you should be at work ! You are an idle wretch, and not worthy that the sun should shine on you." "That's the reason I lay down here in the shade," said the man, sitting up and ya*ning.

Police Courts BRIGHTON. At the Brighton Court yesterday, Joseph Evans, dairyn en. of Ferelson street, was charged with selling milk below the standard,. a charge fre fluently brought againstretailers, who claim in most cases that the whole sale supplier should be charged. Inspector Lennox, of the Public Health Department, said that on Felkuary, 25 he took two samples of milk from defendant's cart. A sample from the handcan was satisfactory, but the bulk can was not up to the standard. Alfred Allan, analyst, said the non fatty solids in the sample amounted to 8.01 per cent. By the freezing test he found that 10 per cent4 of water was added. Cross-examined by lIr. Westley-IIe did not know of any Engdlish authori ty to show that the freezing test was reliable.
