BACHELORS IN TURKEY [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 9 January 1914
BACHELORS IN TURKEY Both the State and the Church ii. Iurkey combine to make a bachelor' life miserable. As long as a man' parents are living he can live with them without experiencing any dimf :ulty. But as soon as they die hc must obtain perm.ssinn from botl civil and religious authorities bcfo. he can be admitted to any other Lou. hold; and, moreover, it is the duty *.; the proprietor of the household he en ters to see that males, and not femae. wait upon him. Should the bachel.r be possessed of sufficient means to c. eupy a house or rent unfurnished apartments, he cannot obtain such : privilege unless he can show that a woman ,f undeniable repute lives aith him therein. Mother, sister. o, aunt will remove this difficulty. Bur a man without any relations may b without a home for an indeflail, ,eriod.

WHERE HE FAILED. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 9 January 1914
WHERE HE FAILED. The new minister of a Perthshire kirk had occasion to complain to one of the tlders of the poorness of the collections "Aye," remarked the worthy elder, "they're verra close, verra close, but the auld meenister always used tae gie them a start by nutting three or foour iaxpences in the plate; of course," he added, "he'd takhis saxpences awa diterwards." The minister smiled, but resolved, seveitheless. to try the "auld meenis fer's" plan. With a very sad face he had to repo,! f failure on the occasion of the next col. Section. "I placed seven sixpences In the plate," he remarked sadly to the blder "'to find the total collection was eighl shillings and lourpence, and I arm deeply grieved to say that three of the sixpences are missinr." Mannie, manr.n'e," said the elde pitvingly. "maybe ye're a better preach er than the auld meenister, but if 7' fnd half his ken o' the world in pen oral, ve'd hae done as he used tae. ar' enees tae the niat" 4j m@$1 S~lb34

TURQUOISE MINES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 9 January 1914
TURQUOISE MINES. Persia is the only place in the world rhich produces turquoises, the most 7elebrated mines being at Nishapur. Here there are two villages entirely ,eopled by the miners, who work at a lepth of ninety feet, breaking up the ,ck into small pieces, after which the ,urquoises are hammered out and left na the rough state. The recent popu. arity of this stone created such a de nand that the mining was carried on right and day. There are also khaki (earth) mines, 'hich are worked entirely by women mnd children, as tliey have merely to lip up three feet of soil and sift it for he stones. The turquoise is formed of. a sdub. Itaifte allied to clay and contains some zon and copper, and, though good itones are rare, greenish or spotted ones rre of little value and are sold to poor )rientals for their tin rings. The co our of a turquoise fades, but is revived when damped-in fact, in Eastern narkets it is uuite a'common practice ior an Oriental dealet to sell to the insuspecting E...
