FOR PACKING ORANGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 10 January 1911
FOR PACKING. ORANGES. Until very recently the wrapping and packing of oranges was done .by hand. A machine has now ap peared, however, which automati cally cuts and prints the wrapping paper and wraps the orange. Each mrans rvnp hitnrlrpH nranfPS a minute, without waste of paper or injury to the fruit, and with perfect precision. Mechanical hand^-i^ick up the fruit without ^ vI'^SVinfr ed by the machine are automatical ly fed on to the belt and receive the fruit from the mechanical hands Then the machine folds the wrap pers around the oranges and crimps them over the stem end so tightly that the fruit can be rolled over a rough floor without undoing it.
LOVE AND SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 10 January 1911
LOVE AND SERVICE. ▼ This is the positive aspect of love : the doing of something-good to ev eryone whenever an opportunity pre sents itself. - No one is in such a position but that he or she can do .soriiething to help others, if it is only ktr Koino* n1#-nc5inf nrul rheerful in V T ? ? — ? ? manner. We may not all be able to help others with our influence and money, but we can help with our sympathy, our good-will, and kind words, if nothing more. Victor Hugo has said, 'There is in this world no function more important than that of being charming. To shed joy around, to radiate happi ness, to cast light upon dark days, is not this to render a service' Yes, even in this way we can help others to better bear their burdens, and, in doing so, we are cultivating at the same time a cheerful disposi tion for ourselves, and are forming what Wordsworth calls : That best portion of a good man's life, ? His little, nameless, unremember ed acts Of kindness and of , love.r — F. C. Baker ( ,'Ehe...
INDIAN RUNNER DUCKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 10 January 1911
INDIAN RUNNER DUCKS. Those of my readers who are parr splendid forager and thrives best where it enjoys full liberty, it can be kept with profit in a small back yard or garden with no water other than that supplied ip a trough. It is a great egg producer, and an ex traordinary winter layer. While it cannot compete with the Aylesbury aa a table bird in the market, it sup plies the demand for plump, teiider ducklings',' weighing 3J to 4lbs., dressed, in early spring, when Ayles buries aro scarce, as it lays well in December _ when the -Aylesbury's eggs are few- and far between.
MAN'S ANCESTORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 10 January 1911
MAN'S ANCESTORS. Startling development of the Darwinian theory is contributed by Dr. F. Melchers, the German biologist, in the 'Zeitgeist.' In stead of descent from a single race of apes, Melchers propounds the theory that mankind is really divided into' four great race groups, each of which is descended from one of the four race groups of anthropoid apes. Representatives of these four are to be found in existing gorillas, chim panzees', orangs, and gibbon apes. From the gorilla type of ape are descended, according to Melchers, what he calls the West Congo Gui nea-Sudan negro, the Bantus and Zulus, and also the fair-haired and red-haired Northern races, including the Finns ; from the chimpanzee ape are descended' Bushmen, Lapps-, Berbers, and Southern Europeans ; the orang-outang is the ancestor of the I asmanians, Australians, ana short-headed South Germans ; while Mongolians, Malays', Polynesians, and Siberians come from the gibbon ape.

A slight pressure upon the treadle starts the motor, the speed may be increased by further pressure, and upon release of pressure the motor stops instantly.
ACCURATE WEIGHING. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 10 January 1911
ACCURATE WEIGHING. No one has any idea to what lengths scientists have to go to get the.correct weight of anything. Ord inary grocer's scales never give the correct weight of substances, neith er do the fine chemist's scales of the most accurate laboratory. Correc tions must be added or subtracted to the final reading to secure absolute accuracy. The reason for this is what is known as the principle of Archimedes. When a body iij im mersed in a fluid, says a writ r in the 'New York Tribune,' it '.oses in weight an amount equal to the weight of the displaced fluid. Of course, air is a fluid, and we labour under the disadvantage of having to weigh everything in it, no perfect vacuum^iavi^^^^^jP^^I^^^ would dc no necessity or applying the principle of Archimedes^ and the correct weight could be read off dir ectly from the scales. It will be argued that if the body to be weighed loses weight, so must the weights with- which the weight is found. Thij ^ true en ough; but the \- eights inv...

A PLEASANT PASTIME. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 10 January 1911
A PLEASANT PASTIME. With patience and care skeleton plants may be produced by anyone. The leaves should be gathered when they are in perfection — that is, when the first fall of autumn leaves takes place. See that they are unbroken and free from the ravages of insects. # ? ? — ? o_ — ? Lay them in pans of rain water and expose to the air to undergo decom position. Renew the water from time to time, taking care not to damage the leaves. Examine them once a week and see that the water just covers them. When sufficient time has elapsed for the soft parts to be come decomposed take the leaves out and lay them on a white plate with a little water, and wash away very carefully (using a camel-hair pencil) the green matter that clings to the fibres. When, thoroughly cleansed thus bleach .the skeletons by steeping tlieiri for a short period in a weak solution of chloride of lime. Then dry them, press flat, or arrange into bouquets, and place under a glass cover. The prettiest of fairy-like b...
PLATONIC FRIENDSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 10 January 1911
PLATONIC FRIENDSHIP. The successful platonic friendships are those that are based on business relationships. Men and women who are engaged in the same work and meet day by day for the same pur suits are Very liable to strike up a friendship which may be happy and helpful to both. In these cases there are certain unwritten laws which should be rigidly conformed to. Of these, the most -important is that there shall be no love-making or flirtation of any kind. The girl, especially if she is earning her own living, should always bear her own share of any expenses they may in cur together. She should pay for her own lunches and entertainment tickets, and should not allow the man the privilege of doing so — ex- cept in special cases of invitation. Platonic friendship between young girls and men should be avoided. It is totally unfair to both the girl and the man. When a woman has reached the age of 30 she may be ex pected to know her own mind. She has generally had some experience of the ...

Could Sir John Fothersgill spare time to come round and meet him. Sir John hurried around, to be introduced to John Wrangham. 'Seem to have been having a bad time,' said Wrangham, tak ing note of the once successful fin ancier's bruised face and hunted, desperate expression. 'I have one myself. People who run up against my iMSter-in-law seem to strike trou ble somehow.' y,~: - 'Your sister-in-law?' queried Sir John, uncomprehending. 'Mrs. Arthur Wrangham, you know.

MATTEES FEMININE COLUMNS. Honsehold Hints. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 10 January 1911
, MATTEBS FEMININE COLUMNS. Household Hints. ? — v ? A teaspoon ful of olive oil taken each day will aid the digestion and ease liver trouble. Parsley will keep fresh for several days if put into a closely-fitting tin in a cool place. This is better than, standing it in water. I Smoking may be indulged in with impunity in any room if a large bowl of fresh water is placed in the room the last thing at night, and allowed to remain there until next morning. The water absorbs the stale odor. For removing fruit stains from the ? hands, try rubbing the stains with a piece of cut lemon before wash ing in soap and water. Tomato skins rubbed over the hands are al so effective for removir; fruit stains. Mice hate cayenne pepper; and if the holes are filled with rags liberal ly sprinkled with it, and then stop ped with mortar in which , a little chloride of lime has been mixed, they will n*Jt attempt to come through it. Failing brass or eppper polishing paste, a good makeshift cleanser may be ...
THE WIFE IN BUSINESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 10 January 1911
THE WIFE IN BUSINESS. A writer in a woman's journal says: 'A man's wife often knows -more than he does about a great many things, and, while he need not lower himself in her estimation by admitting her mental superiority, it is well sometimes for him silently j.- ? : ? i ? ? : ? ? iu lecugiiisu iiei bujjcikjj. Hitemgcnwc and profit by it. The judgment of the average woman regarding the disbursement of money is often bet ter than that of the average man, particularly when it comes to spend ing money for domestic purposes. It takes a shrewd tradesman to get over the average sensible woman, while a tradesman finds it easy to work off the stale goods on the ave rage man; and the most conceitec man might as well acknowledge frankly that his wife can attend to most of the affairs of her own house hold better than he can attend to them for her. Women very often hjave the most acute perception re garding business affairs. If men would only 'talk business' with their wives, instead of taking...
THE SWEET GIRL. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 10 January 1911
THE SWEET GIRL. The 'sweet' girl or to-day is so in every sense of the word. Not only is her temper sweet, kept so by good health ; her garments are sweet with the fragrance of flowers, caught and caged in some subtle perfume. Her gowns arc hung with sweet-smelling sachets in them; her handkerchiefs are kept in a wadded box made sweet with the same odour ; her headgear has a perfumed, lined box ; so have her gloves, her veils, and all other toilet accessories. She uses myrrh for a tooth wash and puts tincture of benzoin in the wash basin. She sprinkles lavender water on the clothes fresh from the laundry. In fact, every item of woman's life should be sweet and lovely. You may do all these things, use all the cosmetics in the world, all the small things that mark the dainty woman, and yet you will not be beautiful, or even lovely (which means lovable), unless you have a sweet and contented and un selfish spirit. Mere beauty is pretty to look at, but it is one of the most unsatisfying...

Mr J. J. Hodgson's Hall of Commerce A TRIBUTE TO A TRADESMAN'S ENTERPRISE. . Now that the extensive improvements to his business premises in - Green-street are completed, seems an appropriate time to pay Mr. J. J. - Hodgson, stotek^eper, of Lockhart, the tribute which, we feel sure, the public would like us to express, complimentary to a gentleman who has tlie pluck and initiative to step right aw.ly out of the rut and effect improve ments on a scale which practically defy imitation. Oil all sides, Mr. I Hodgson is being freely congratulated, but this does not represent a tithe of the favorable impressious made upon the minds of residents in town and district. * His alterations and elaborate improvements have created more talk than any event that has happened in Lockhart for many years. Al though we have addressed ourselves to the attempt, we know that mere words will not produce the deep impressions that would be created, and ?
