FLOWERS, THE SINGER'S ENEMY. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 February 1910

FLOWERS, THE SINGER'S ENEMY. In his book, 'The Art of Singing,' Mr. Charles Santley describes how he frequently found his voice affected by the exhalations from flowers., 'Flowers growing in the open aii are innocuous as far as I know/' says the famous singer; 'but, growing or cut, confined in the space of an ordin ary room, they are the cause of suffer ing, especially to those afflicted with hiehly-strune nervous systems. I have known ladies who suffered martyrdom from headache caused by the flowers without which they declared they j 'could not exist.' 'In the early part of my career I. found that occasionally, leaving home for a concert in excellent voice, after j being in the artists' room for a little time I was attacked with an unac countable hoarseness, the cause of which I vainly endeavored to dis cover.

The consequence of this was apparent when Captain March and appeared at Fashoda at the very moment when Lord Kitchener had over thrown tho power of tho ...

Farm Machinery. . 'A modern farm requires modern machinery.

Making Land Produce its Utmost. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 February 1910

Making Land Produce its Utmost. i 'Many farmers really have -so much land that they can be said to be land poor;- they have so much land that they are unable to till and manure it; then, too, their taxes are a burden. Let us remember that it takes a mighty bis: man for even , a small farm. The farmer who looks over his broad fieMs, probably many acres of which he does not attend to for weeks at a time, is surely bringing anxiety and. worry upon himself that will make him grey before his time. In a farm of such size there are numerous acres that are practically tmworked. It may bo well to remember that suc cess in farming depends not so much upon having many broad acres to look over as it does upon making every foot of land produce the highest pos sible amouut.' — 'American Cultiva tor.'

A SCIENTIST'S VIEWS ON FLYING. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 February 1910

A SCIENTIST'S VIEWS ON FLYING, j There are many among those who are hopeful about the future of aero planes (says Sir E. Ray Lankester, writing in the 'Daily Telegraph') who illogically suppose because some appli ances, like the steam engine and the motor-car, have in the past rapidly developed from the condition of volume,), uaugcruuu Llliugb u- me pOBl tion of efficiency and universal use fulness which they at present occupy, that such progress is a law of human invention, and that the aeroplane must of necessity eventually develop triumphantly. The sober truth is that such a future may be in store for us — but that there is no 'reason to feel confident that such is the case. Such an opinion is, of course, consistent with profound admiration for the skill, but above all for the courage, the im mense courage, of men like M. Bler iot, and the others who risk their lives in feats of aviation. An interesting consideration in re gard to this matter is that when you increase greatly the...

THE CARE OF THE SICK. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 February 1910

THE CARE OF THE. SICK. Be very careful how you conduct yourself in the presence of an invalid. He or she is apt to be worried, and perhaps retarded in convalescence by the slightest careless action in the sick-room. Don't let them see the preparations for any little coming duty. Persons weak from long ill ness have- been known to become positively exhausted at saving the ar rangements to make the bed, perhaps, going forward. . Always remove the tray containing the dishes as soon as the meal is finished. It is not pleasant to see used dishes lying around. Don't speak loud, and when you do speak, don't inform the patient how sick he has been, , or dilate upon the latest rail road smash-up or holocaust. Be cheer ful. Be neat in your personal ap pearance. Don't open wide every^door and window, and blind the patient with a flood of hot sunlight. On the other hand, don't hermetically seal up all openings, until the invalid is in a tomb without a breath of fresh air. Display considerable c...

Arrested Him. At a recent dinner in New York, Joseph H. Choate, a former Ambassa dor from the United States to Great Britain, was speaking of the necessity for proper official residences in for eign countries. 'When I first went to England, said Mr. Choate, 'I spent weeks and weeks looking for a house. It was most arduous service in my country's interest. I trailed all over the avail able sections of London, and while I was at it a London bobby arrested a man who was pursuing a most erratic and forlorn course out Hyde Park way. ' 'Here, my man,' said the bobby, 'what are you doing? Why don't you go home?' ' 'Home?' replied the man, bitterly. 'I have no home. I am the American Ambassador.' '

WHAT A PARROT DID. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 February 1910

WHAT A PARROT DID. One of the cleverest performances ever recorded of a parrot is told in a Chicago paper. In a certain home in that city the heads of the household were absent, leaving the servants in charge, and Polly, as usual, on. her perch in the dining-room. During the evening burglars entered and began rummaging among- the silver and other vaiUHUiett m me uiuiug-iumu. «.o il was dark the men did not see the par rot. ' The sagacious creature seemed to realise that something was wrong, and as the electric bell which sum moned the servants was within reach, she quietly pressed the button with her claw, as she had often seen her mistress do. It may have been only imitation on Polly's part, but it work ed as well as if she had reasoned out the matter. The servants came rush ing in and secured the burglars, and doubtless Polly had an extra 'cracker' for her services.

SIGNS AND OMENS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 February 1910

SIGNS AND OMENS. By Arnold Golsworthy. One of the commonest experiences in life is to hear people say they are having bad luck. And yet you will often find on inquiry that these people have taken no steps at all to guard against the ill-luck of which they coin nlain. I have known people set out to buy 3hares in a gold-mine, and on the way to carelessly walk .under a ladder. Common-sense ought to tell a man like that that his gold-mine is pretty sure to be swamped in the rush. How can it possibly do otherwise in the cir cumstanc&3? There are many men who claim, when they are setting out on a new enter prise, that they have taken every pos sible precaution to ensure success, and yet a man like that will often take no heed whatever as to whether he goes out of his door in the morning with the right foot first or the left. It is a well-known fact that when setting out on a new journey or a new enterprise you should always lead off with the right foot when leaving yoUr house. Oth...

How the Cook Understood it. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 February 1910

How the Cook Understood It. An elderly gent in a country vil lage, unable to attend morning ser vice, sent his cook instead. 'Well what was the sermon about?' he asked on her return. 'It was, all about cooking, sir,' she replied. 'Split peas and suet.' 'Surely not.' said her master. 'Parsons generally preach about spir itual matters. What was the text?' She told him the chapter and verse. He sought the text, and found it was 'Seek peace and pursue it.' 'I look upon you, sir, as a rascal!' exclaimed an angry man. 'You are privileged to look upon me in any character you desire to as sume!' was the response. Decision never becomes easier by postponement, while habit grows stronger every day. Common-sense as well as conscience says, 'Choose this day.' Caller: Snip and Co. have employed me to collect the bill you owe them.
