HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 4 September 1914
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. When threading n rieodlo tako a white onvelopo, stick tho needle through, and draw it down until tho eyo is visible, and you will thread tho needle like magic. The whito surface of tho paper sets the eye into relief, as if , it were magni fied. If kerosene and water bo put into a sprinkling pot, and all outhouses dustpans, etc., places where : flies breed and increase in thousands, be sprinkled carefully with tho mixture occasionally during the summer months, the eggs will bo destroyed, and the household be spared an in tolerable nuisance and a real dan ger. A good way to use up coal dust is to save all paper bags, fill them, with the dust, and when the _ fire re ! quires mending place a bag' of the dust on it, with a few pieces of coal on top. This plan is much cleaner than putting on the- dust' in shovelfuls, as it cakes, and so does not tumble through the bars of-tho grate on to the hearth. ■ To improvo the .flavour of currants and sultanas which are to bemused f...
Ladies' Column. AN APPLIQUE CUSHION COVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 4 September 1914
Ladies' Column. 1 AN APPLIQUE CUSHION' COVEH. There is something very fascinating about applique work, and it is very effective for cosies, cushion coverB, etc., and it entails much less la-, hour than elaborate embroidery, and often, gives as good, or better, results. A dainty cushion cover adorned with applique work is shown in the accompnaying illustration, , and the design can bo quite easily worked from our sketch. The cover itself is made of pale green soft silk, ..nd should measure about eighteen in ches each way, without reckoning the hemstitched frill, which shouul bo about three or four inches In width. The velvet applique is of a dark green colour, and is cut out in the shapo shown by T)iagra:n A, . on the right of the sketch, and edged with a dull shade of old gold gal loon, a colour which always looks so well on a background of green. The cover at the bnclc is mado to fasten after tho manner of an ordinary pillow-slip, with a flap nnd three buttons and buttonholos, and ...
Great Anti-Fly Campaign. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 4 September 1914
Great Anti-Fly Campaign. ——1—— A few months ago the' Sunday Times' offered a prize of £10 to the resident of Johannesburg sending the greatest number of dead flies to the Municipal Health Office within a period of three months. The second prize was' £5, third £2 10e., and and twenty-five prizes of 10s. each to the competitors sending the next highest numbers. The' result has just been declared, the winner having 8,008(490 flies to his credit, the second prize-win ner 5,914,500, and tho third 4,710, 400. The total number of flies killed was 61,943,300, and .this number is vouched for by tho Health De partment "of tho Johannesburg Muni cipality, who did the counting. Since it has been proved by scien tists that a single fly is capable of having descendants " numbering 1, 096,181,219,310,720,000,000, 000, 000 in a period of six months, it fol lows that tho 61,913,300 flics killed in the ' Sunday Times' competition might, beforo the cold weather set in, have produced the stupendous tota...
A South Pacific Echo. REMINISCENCES OF "EARLY DAYS" WITH AN "OLDTIMER." [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 4 September 1914
A South Pacific Echo. 4 REMINISCENCES OP " EARLY DAYS" WITH AN '* OLD TIMER." An elderly, retired South Sea ls land trader has supplied some in teresting information regarding the trade customs of tho Pacific s landers in the curly days. "I have no objection," he remark ed, "to your making use of my re marks, as long as you withhold, my name, as I do not wish to bo drawn into any controversy, since you plainly see, X am too old for that sort of thing now." On being assured that his wish would be respected, ho proceeded to narrate tho following"Before we whitemen came to the Islands to trade, tho ' niggers' did not have manv wants, but after our arrival on tho scono their requirements underwent a rapid chango. Most of them suddenly discovered that jews' harps, tobacco, medicines, china arm bracelets, and especially live dogs, were absolute necessities of life.

THE FIRST CONVICTS OF BOTANY BAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 4 September 1914
THE FIRST CONVICTS OF BOTANY BAY. When Captain Philip;! sailed, for Botany Bay- with a batch of . con victs, on May i8, 1787, probably neither skipper,. - crew, nor' prisoners imagined that they were "making his tory. Yet the little fleet, with its 564 male and 192 female convicts (besides soldiers, sailors, and offi: cials), was practically the founda tion of our great Commonwealth. Considering the comparatively slight crimes for which transportation was inflicted- in the "good old times," '■ and the merciless nature of the "jus tice" dealt out to the lower classes '■ tor slight deviations from the, path of virtue, it is quite possible that Captain "Philipp's gaolbirds and their warders contained an appreciable proportion of what .is needed to build tip a new colony. The success of the experiment is its best excuse, though no one who has studied the black side of the trans portation system would desire to see it renewed in its entirety. The allotment of prisoners -as "servants" (pr...
GLORIOUS WAR! [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 4 September 1914
GLORIOUS WAR ! Gabriel Suchet', who gained Ms baton and dukedom in Spain, was the only prominent French corps commander to. emcrgo from that grim, inglorious warfare with repu tation enhanced. All Napoleon's . other generals impaired 'their credit, and even Suchet smirched his name, on which the storm' 'of'Lerida, in Western Catalonia, May 13, 1810, left a mark not to be whitewashed over by admirers. The city fell, after a brief siege, but Suchet, wanting the citadel also, gained it by methods simple, eflec tive, but brutal, perhaps .the great est - atrocity perpetrated by any combatant throughout the war. They consisted in sending) detach ments through tho streets with or ders to thrust tho population, along with the wreck of the garrison, into tho ditch and over the drawbridge into the citadel. Pressed on by the French, they filled the castle yard before the governor could exclude them. Then, the castle being cram med with 15,000 men, women, and children, Suchet bombarded it with ...
MITSON'S DOG. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 4 September 1914
MITSON'S DOG. Mitson's shop in our place has ! been closed for a week or so. Mit ' son was perfectly willing to have ' it open, but circumstances rendered it necessary .for him to suspend bu siness" for a while. There had been a good many burglaries, and Mitson bought a dog to keep in his shop at night. The man that sold the dog said that its one strong peculiarity was its vigilance. So the man turned the dog loose in the shop, and Mitson locked up for the night and went homo. When he came down in the morn ing the dog flew at him as soon as he opened the door, and attempted to breakfast on Sir. Mitson's legs ; thereupon Mr. Mitson shut the door and sat down to think. Then he went after the man who sold tho dog ; but b« had gone out of town to see his aunt, and wouldn't be 'back for a month. Mitson then undertook to coax the dog through tho crnpk of the door ; but tho ani mal still maniftsted a resolute de termination to chew Mitson's legs, and so Mitson closed the door again and beg...
THE RELIEF OF MAFEKTNG. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 4 September 1914

PEN PICTURES OF THE PAST. THE PARISIAN PITMAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 4 September 1914
PEN PICTURES OF THE v PAST. •—;—-♦ ■ THE PARISIAN PITMAN. While Sir Isaac Pitman died rich and honoured, the inventor of the most popular Vrench short ' hand system passed away re cently in comparative obscurity. Abbe Emilo Duploj'e was a young 'priest who formed a sudden and inexplicable taste for stenography (which, of course, forms no part of the curriculum necessary to qualify for Holy Orders, Catholic or Pro • testant). He studied the existing systems profoundly, saw. their im perfections, and decided to improve them. He quitted his ecclesiastical duties, and, working in collaboration with his brother, invented the Duployan system. But to invent is only the first step. The abbe's notable feat was to popularise his system. He foun led at Paris the " Stenographic Institute of tho Two Hemispheres." He published journals, founded li braries, formed classes, and deliver ed lectures. His energy was crown ed by success. Canon J>upIoye died at St. 3Iaur des Fosses, near Paris, on Ma...

It was more than a triumph—it was a rout, definite and complete.; When the Fusion forces first paraded the political •arena the people fairly screamed at the record ■ jackdaw-in-peacock-fea ther display. With vehemence they proclaimed, they would have none of it. But the "jacks" per sisted that their screed bore the im primatur of heaven. The people thought it looked more like a wail from some other region. Fusion was swept into outer darkness. In a most remarkable way the finan ces of the country took on a more roseate hue. It was predicted that nothing but blank ruin would cover the face of Australia with these "Labah fellahs'' at the helm. Time proved the utter fallacy of such a contention. Mother Shi...
