COFFEE MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 9 April 1914

COFFEE MAKING. To obtain tlio full flavor of coffee, it should be freshly roasted just, he lore it is made. The French find it no trouble to do this in the home, and their coffee' Is perfect in flavor and aroma. A coffee mill is not at. all an expensive item, and aUhous;h a roasting machine is a more elabor ate apparatus, results almost as goo.l as the coffee of France can be ob tained by baking the coffee nibs for a few minutes before grinding; them in the mill. Coffee should always be kept in a fin with a tight-lilting lid, as it soon loses its delicate flavor if exposed to the air. "So you proposed to her. Accepted, of course?" "Accepted? Why, she treated me like a dop;. "Allow me to congratulate you, old fellow. I saw how she treated one tlic pther day, and, by Jove! how I en vied that dog."

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 9 April 1914

KITCHEN WRINKLES. To purify a cistern tie charcoal in a bag and drop it in. Celery may be freshened by being left overnight in a solution of salt and water. When making blue-water for clothes add a little salt to it. This distri butes the color evenly and prevents "patches." ^ Cook cauliflowers in milk and water -it gives them a better flavor, and they look whiter than when cooked in water. Sometimes boot polish becomes quite dry with keeping. Moisten it with a little turpentine. It softens the polish, making it usable at once, and also gives a good gloss to the leather. ' If at any time you should have a gathered linger or poisoned hand, take a cabbage leaf, roll it out with a bottle until the juice comes, and tie it on the affected part. This will draw and cleanse it far better than a poultice. When using oil stoves, to prevent . them from smoking, dissolve one tablespoonful of common salt in every pint of paraffin oil that you use. This also gives a much clearer light, and it pre...

Bumptious Cecil. Cecil Rhodes'a masterfulness and sense of importance met with little opposition as a rule, but a little Ger man clerk in the Transvaal Govern ment offices at Johannesburg before the war taught him a lesson. "Please attend to me at once," thun dered the Colossus, "I can't -wait." "When your turn comes, mister," replied the clerk. "Confound you, man! Don't you know who I am?" asked Rhodes. "Oh, yes, I know you; 'but don't you worry about me," was the clerk's un ruffled reply. "If you were in Cape Town I would have you discharged at once!" roared the great man. "Yes," said the clerk, very cooily, "I've heard tliey discharge people iu Cape Town for doing their duty. But this isn't Cape Town-this is u Re public."

WIT OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 16 April 1914

WIT OF THE WEEK. Success isn't HO much getting what you want as getting what other peo ple want. When a girl is as pretty as a pic plclure it may be because she does her own developing. Anything that has to be whispered brings men and women nearer to gether-naturally. There are very few words on a page alter ttie first chapter of most real-lite love stories. Many a v.-oman who otherwise has excellent eyesight cannot see through her own husband. For most people marriage is a game of chance, but tor some women spinsterhood is a dead certainty. "The happy couple had known one another for only five short weeks be fore their wedding." Think of it. And plenty of miserable couples don't know one another twenty-five long years after their wedding. A coquette is a rose from which every lover plucks a leaf-the thorns are reserved for her husband.

WHAT WE EAT. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 16 April 1914

WHAT WE EAT. If you are of average weight, height and appetite, and live to be seventy-five, you will have eaten fifty four tons of solid food and fifty-three - tons of liquid. That is. about thir teen hundred times your own weight. It you were to stack the bread you have eaten in this uun:ber of years, the pile would equal a fair-sized build ing. The amount of butter you -will have used on this bread would come to a ton and a Quarter. If you are a lover of bacon, aud were to stretch that which you have eaten out in ainglo slices, four miles would be the length. Five tons of fish and 12,000 eggs would stand to your credit, while the normal cheese eater would easily have consumed 4001b. The vegetables you will have eaten would fill a train three miles long. You will have consumed some 10,000 lb. of sugar and l.SOOlu. of salt.
