WOMEN'S INTERESTS [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 February 1914
'VN 'S INTERESTS (By "Ambrosine.") American dressmakers, says the New York correspondnt of. the "Daily Tele eraph," are devoting some attention to: the possibilities of pina cloth, from the Philippines, as an artistic substitute for the diaphanous gowns worn by America-n women, who demand the very: latest thing in dress fabrics. Samples are being shown here, and the stores are ordering considerable quantities for next season. Pina cloth is more diaphanous than the thinnest of ovile, more pellucid than the most. clinging crepe de Chine, and more transparent than the thinnest of crepe meteor.- It mn be doubled several times and still bo transparent. In. one layer-itshas. no more thickness than cobweb, and gowns made of ping will be called cob web gowns: It is called pine cloth oecause it .is made of half silk, and half pine apple fibre. It comes in all col ors, and in stripes of all designs. It can be bought at a shilling a yard in the "Philippines, but vwill probably sell for two shi...
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS. ABOUT PATENT LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 February 1914
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS. ABOUT PATENT LAW. "When patent specifications are lodg ed, are they acoapted by .the Govern ment in that form ?" The answ?ei, by Mir. G. G. Tuirri to. this question is that in some countries they are, and in those countries it is all them more. important for the appli cant to have the specification properly worded, for if it is not, he may lose benefits otherwise obtainable--perhaps he may loce a fortune. In Australia, however, while a great m;iny are ac cepted as filed, there are amiendments made to suit the examiners, before an acceptance is issued, in a fair pro portion of the applicants. We now give further details of Aus tralian Patent Law, in continuation of the matter on the subject in our pre vious issue, and as supplied by Mssrs. Turri & Co. "Proceedings for the insertion in a specification of a disclaimer, correction or explanation proposed by applicant may be taken, and such alteration will be allowed if the specification as amend ed does no...

MISSING CONTINENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 February 1914
MISSING GOiTINT ENTS.. It has long been ,one of the delights of phllosop.ly and solence to spend, their imagination on the construction oi vanished continents, where either Euto pias flourished, or the conditions ob taining were suitable for .the develop ment of "missing links" 'Thus on the one sida of --the- -world we have theo hypothetioal, but probable continent, sometimes called Leniuria, of which the Dutch East India Isles -are all that remain, where the biologist aud eth nologist may sport with theories of the arrival and dispersal of man; and on the other side we have the Atlantis of thei ancients--that tisland to the west of the Strait of Gibralter, whioh legend has it, was submerged by the gods, because of the impiety of its in habitants.

A LINE OF SAFETY. "One of thd characteristics of my old comrade, Amos Stillman, was brav ery in actual fighting service," said the old soldier. "Another characteris tic was a sense of humour which stood him in good stead even in the face of danger, and contributed not a little to the gaioty of his comrades.

THE TIDE OF EMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 February 1914
THE TIDE OF EMIGRATION. Some interesting Statistics concern ing emigration from Great Britain to the colonies are given by. Mr John son's 'book "A History of Emigration from the United Kingdom to North America." The highest figure was reached in 1911, when 184,860 people of British Nationality left those shores for Canada, and 80,770 for Australia and New Zealand, In 1901, the figures were 15,757 and. 15,350 res pectively, which were below the aver age, for in 1881 as many as 23,912 Britishers went to Canada, and 22,682 to Australia and New Zealand. The emigration to the United States was far greater in former days, reaohing the high water mark of 201,526 in 1827, whereaa only 121,814 people of British extraction left our shores for the States in 1911. The exodus of agricultural laborers has largely increased lately, amounting to 33,234 in 1911, as compared with 12,966 in 1901. It is interesting to note at the same time that Irish Em igration is on the decoline. In 1853, 173,148 Iri...

HEALING BY TROMBONE. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 February 1914
HEALING BY TROMBONE. After a remarkable oareer, August Henri Jacob, or "Le Zouavo Jacob" the well-known faith-healer of Paris, whose celebrity dated back to the da.ys of the Empire, has (says, the correspon dent .of the "Daily Telegraph,") died ?ti the age of 85. Born in 1828, he entered the a'my at the age of 16, and became a bandsman among the Zuaves of the Imperial Guard, distinguishing himself as a clever player of the trom bone. It was in 1866, at the camp of Chalons, that he first announced that he had the 'faculties of; curing naladies by simple will power. Several sick soldiers made the experiment. He fixed his eyes upon them, blew a blast upon his trombone, and declared them cured. Whatever thd reason, cured they appear to have been. The fame of these "miraoles" spread to Paris, and even reached the ears of the Em poier Napoleon III himself. Jacob then left the regiment, and opened a consultation room at Saint Ouen. Among his patients was Marshal Can= cobert. Jacob played h...

GIRLS WITH BRAINS NEEDED IN THE HOUSEHOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 February 1914
GIRLS WITH BRAINS NEEDED IN THE HOUSEHOLD. "Domestio service as a' career for educated women" was advocated by Mrs Cloudesley Brereton at the Na tional Gas Conference. 1T the edu cated woman was to be the domestio handmaiden. of the future, she said, it must be as friend and colleague, and not as serf and dependent. She must share in domestic responsibilities They wanted to get back to the okl fashioned ideas and ideals of the well bred English woman, from feudal times onwards, and to depart from the snobbish and paroohial idea that to understand housework was to lose caste. This was just a passing phase -a vulgar phase--and had never seri ously affected the well-bred mistress. It was an ideal of the servant's hall, the middle class "lady," and of the half educated noveaux riches generally, of those, in short, who never saw behind the scenes of the real gentlewoman's life, and who seemed to imagine that a queen ate and slept in full court robes, and that a real "lady" came down to b...
WHAT OUR FOREFATHERS ATE. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 February 1914
WHAT OUR FOREFATHERS ATE. A German paper ,publishes an inter esting article on the lost dishes of the Middle Ages. It seems that the art of cooking has declined, and that it is in part due to the changing fashions in food. For instance, in Germany, in the middle Ages, many vegetables were eaten whioh have long since dis appeared from the table, such as vio let leaves, mixed with young nettles, thistles and green wheat, and boiled hemp seeds. Salads were made of mallow leaves, celery roots, and purs lane, mixed with salt and pepper, for oil was almost unknown. Olive oil was considered to smack of efliminaoy and Italian luxury. HIorse radish sauce was used instead. The origin of sauerkraut is lost in antiquity. But it was certainly invented by the Ger man hausfrau' long before oauliflowers or artichokes or potatoes were known. The potato revolutionised the fare of the poor, who had formerly. to rely on the roots of wild plants. The var iety of meats was larger, including beavers, and ...

"But look here, Pat" said the latter, "you must see that the world.can't be anything else but round. Now, tell me, whero does the sun rise," "In the east, of course," said Pat. "And w1here does it set?" "Why, in the west." "Well, then, how did it manage to Pat thought hard for a minute. Then an intelligent look dawned in his eye. "Why, of course," said he at last, "it just slips back in the night I" get back in the west again by the morning; tell me that?"

Willie didn't understand.. "Tart what?" :she repeated sharply. , Then Willie had an idea, which seem ed to solve his difficulties, and.-made the world bright once more.. "Tar tirst,"' he answered.
