SIX TO NINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 10 January 1911

SIX TO NINE. j We are pleased lo notice that there is a movement within the present Mitchell Shire Council, led by Cr Lindon, to increase the number of councillors from sjx to nine. There is need of an increase in most of the Riverina shires, because of the rapidity of growth which is mani fested amongst the maioritv of them. Mitchell Shire is no exception. The township of Uranquinty for iustance, consequent upon its own rapid development and the development of the surrounding district warrants a representative of its own. There are interests at Uranquinty which, if are to be properly served, demand a representative on the spot. Con sequently we hope that Cr Lindon, who is again manifesting the spirit of progress which dominates him, will be successful in having the proposed addition to. the personnel of pbe council carried out.

THE MOUTH AND THE EYE-BROWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 10 January 1911

THE MOUTH AND THE EYE BROWS. If you have an overlong upper lip which seems to curl down upon the lower one, drop your oversecre tive tendency, and your mouth will improve by degrees. If your lips are thick and- droop at the corners, give up inordinate vanity, and cease to pout when your vain spirit re ceives a wiioiesume cuecK. Further, when your mouth turns up.at the corners in lamb-like fashion, set about improving your mind and acting with greater strength of will than is your wont. To pass your days in aimless, silly fashion is to make your mouth more and more on the sheepish model de scribed.

A STORY FROM CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 10 January 1911

A STORY FROM CHINA. A very old story tells of a nightin gale which belonged to the Emperor of China- This Emperor owned the most magnificent garden in the world. Men from all countries came to admire it. And many of . jui when they returned home wrote books describing its wonders. But . Khf* T5Imnor/-r rmf.innrl aa lin roarl f.Tinir accounts t.liat all of them praised one thing, one little thing which he himself had never seen. This was the nightingale in the wood in his garden. Straightway he command ed that this remarkable bird should be brought to him. None of his courtiers kuew of it. Only a little kitclienmaid could be found who could tell of its song and point out its home. At last the gentleman usher found the nightingale, and entreated him to sing for his celes tial majestiy. He came and sang so sweetly that the hearts of all were touched. The Emperor would have hung his golden slippers round the bird's neck, but, refusing all reward, the - nightingale said : 'I have seen te...

THE ENCHANTED CHIMNEV . Percy had been reading fairy stories, and when he went to bed his head was full of fairy fancies. - 'I should so like to be a fairy,' he murmured as he fell asleep.

THE CONTENTED MERMAID'S SONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 10 January 1911

THE CONTENTED MERMAID'8 SONG. T've jewels and gems beyond com pare ; A p.n'ice of pearls to bide in; And when I'm in want of some ocean air, I float to the surface and find it there. With billowy dales to hide in. The blossoms of foam, like daisies, sway On the hills of the moving occan, And there in the sunshine I blithely nlav At tossing the rainbow wreaths of spray ; With a softly heaving motion. If tempests should come to raise the main, Each billow with anger beating, I've only to dive to my home again, Where, safe in its shelter, my first i I refrain . i I I'm ever with joy repeating. I've jewels and gems beyond com ? pare; . i A palace of pearls to bide in ; i And when I'm in want of some ocean [ air, I float to the surface and find it there. With billowy dales to hide in. Art is order, method, harmonious results, obtained by fine and power ful,principlea.

Random Readings. LEGEND OF A FAMOUS SCULPTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 10 January 1911

Random Readings. LEGEND OF A FAMOUS SCULPTURE. When found, the Venus of Milo was in two parts. With it were a left arm and a hand holding an apple. These afterwards . disap peared. Of the apple we read this legend : At the wedding-feast of Peleus and Thetis, . Discordia, the goddess of dissension, who had not been invited to the reast, tnrew into the midst of the gods and goddesses there assembled a golden apple on which was written 'Let the most beautiful take me.' Hera, the god dess of heaven ; Athena, the god dess' of wisdom, and Aphrodite, the goddess of love, each claimed it. Paris, the son of King Priam of T roy, was commanded by the gods to adjudge the prize. The apple was awarded to Aphrodite. In the year 1820 the Venus of Milo was Found by a Greek peasant in a grotto in the island of Melos in Greece. Soon after it was bought by a Frenchman, the Marquis of Riviere, who presented it to Louis XVIII. The King placed it~in_tlie Louvre. There is remained undis turbed until the si...

AN OLD-WORLD CEREMONY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 10 January 1911

AN OLD-WORLD CEREMONY. Describing 'A Day in Provence,' in tKe 'Nineteenth Century,' Rosa M. Bradley writes : Of great interest is the alt£r for ' sheep-shearers, which Has survived through many centuries, and before \vhich during the Midnight Mass* on Christmas Eve the shepherds will make their offering. Anyone who had the courage to visit Les Beaux at dead of night in winter would surely be rewarded by the quaintiiess of the ancient cere mony, inagurated in the sixteenth century. The solemn darkness of the church is relived only by the lights on the altar and by the lan terns and torches for which we can see the Iron rings fixed in the solid masonry. First a dialogue is 'sung between a shepherd at the back of the church and an 'angel' who is concealed from view behind the al tar, anJ wno is supposed to be an nouncing the good tidings. Herald ed by the beating of a drum, the procession of shepherds and shep herdesses in their long brown cloaks holding wax Fapers In their hands, nppr...

KING ALFRED AND THE POOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 10 January 1911

KING ALFRED AND THE POOR. In an article on 'Poor Relief in England in Olden Times,' in the 'Local Government Review,' Ran dolph A.. Glen writes : The ancient method of dealing wi{h the poor was to lavish alms as a religious duty on all who asked without the least .11.. ? L M. _ J! ? .! ? La»...aan ftlA auempi iu uibuiiiiiiutuc uciwccu nn deserving and the undeserving. Then followed a period during which the process was to punish with excessive severity all those who could but would not work for their living, and to leave to the pity of the charitable those who would butt could not support themselves. The third was to organise a collec tion of a common poor fund, contri - button to which was at first voluntary and only gradually made compul sory, and out of this to relieve the impotent poor and put the able bodied to work. The Anglo-Saxon laws were chiefly concerned with the promotion of piety, the punishment ; '* ( .. ' '.v., ? ?' . - w ' ' v .. ? of crimes against the person and ag...

A DREADFUL INVENTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911

A DREADFUL INVENTION. We wonder what death the man will die, or what tortured life he will be caused to lead, who has just dis covered the little 'trick' by which a woman's age can be ascertained beyond a doubt — that is to say, while her health is normal. The only instrument required is an ordinary watch. The wrist of the lady whose age is in question is the tell-tale- For when you count her pulse, and it registers sixty-nine beats per min ute, you know that she is between twenty and twenty-five years old. During tlie next five years seven ty-one beats go to the minute, and the 'femme de trenle ans' and over is entitled to seventy throbs. It is a pity the man of science who has established these facts is not more exact when dealing with the women of riper age, for according to rumor and tradition it is only, after she is thirty that a woman begins to leave off having birthdays.

TO RELIEVE EARACHE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911

TO RELIEVE EARACHE. Small children and babies con stantly suffer from earache, and the mistake is made by the inexperienc eu nurse of doctoring it for other ail ments before the real trouble is fath omed- The oain frequently occurs in paroxysms, the child awakening | from sleep with a cry as if roused ( by a sharp pain, and lifting its hand j quickly to its ear. The pain will | pass off, perhaps, after a little, and the crying cease, the child's sleep being, however, constantly broken by the recurring agony. The best means of relieving the pain is to ap ply something hot, but if these sim ple methods fail a doctor should be f called in at once. In 'many cases un ( india-rubber hot-water bag held ' to the ear will give relief, and many J nurses try the old-fashionad but none the less efficacious method of little bags filled with salt or bran, or any soft substance which will retain the heat. A flannel warmed at the fire and tied round the child's head is another good method.

HOW TO BRUSH THE TEETH. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911

HOW TO BRUSH THE TEETH. Do not get a stiff brush and file at your teeth with some gritty powder. Take one of medium hardness, and, after sifting on it some soft powder, which should not be used oftener than once a day, move the brush from the roof to the crown, and nev er from the crown to the gums.- Af ter the walls of the teeth have been brushed in this way, on both tongue and cheek surfaces, give the brush a rotary motion across their grinding surfaces, and then brush thoroughly the gums, palate, and tongue. Then with the thumb and finger treat the gums to some good rotary massage,

A MEDIUM MYSTERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911

A MEDIUM MYSTERY. The scientific world of the Contin ent has been interested of late in some experiments made by a Dr. Ochorowicz, of Paris, and Wisla Silesia, with Mile. Stainlaw, Tomo zyk, a medium who has extraordin ary magnetic qualities. When hyp notised, Mile, romozyk has the re markable power of being able to lift any object she chooses. In one set of experiments- a glove was put on the table in front of her, and at her ! bidding it rose, curved over from the middle, and went high up into -the air, to drop gently into the lap of the person indicated. The same sort of thing she did with a magnet, as well as a pair of scissors, a match box, and a note-book, the pages of which last turned over in accordance with her direction. Still more striking was one of the experiments with a pair of scales. She asked that the scales should be fastened to the bottom of a gas-bracket. This done, an egg shaped marble paper-weight was placed in one of the pans, and a cel luloid ball in the othe...

HINTS ON INVALID COOKERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911

HINTS ON INVALID COOKERY. A tablespoonful of vinegar added to the water in which eggs are poached causes them to set lightly without being tough or horny. Simi larly, vinegar added to the water in which meat or fish is boiled tends to make the flesh more easy of dig estion ; but it is important to remem ber that the vinegar should be added after the meat or fish has Been placed in the boiling water, since the ob ject of immersing flesh in boiling water is to form an impermeable layer of hardened albumen so that the maximum of nourishment . may be retained in the meat. Muscle fibre is appreciab'v softened by soak ing in vinegar, hence, whenever pos sible, meat or fish should be marin aded or soaked in vinegar, preferably with an admixture of oil, before it is cooked. Cellulose is likewise amen able to the softening action of vine ' gar; thus it is not without service to add ivinegar to the water, in -which green vegetables are boiled and to permit its use with salad.
