THE BASHFUL GIRL [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911
THE BASHFUL GIRL The bashful girl acquires the ha bit of declining invitations, not be cause she does not long for a good time like other girls, but because she is so self-conscious that the thought of takintr her rightful place in so ciety; is alarming. She wants to go to parties, but is afraid she will not appear to advantage, and before long invitations cease to come her way. Many a girl who is disliked for her indifference is really shy. She wants and needs friends, but does not know how to make them. Often her shyness takes the form of brusquerie, and she gains an unfor tunate reputation for 'snippiness.' Worst of all is -it when bashfulness is masked by showing off. The girl is conscious of herself, but seeks to hide it by a blatant manner. She talks loudly, does and -says silly things, makes herself conspicuous, not Because it is her nature, but be cause she is ill at ease and trying to bluff it off. ' . ?
NURSERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911
NURSERY. For the first three months of his life the less you talk to your baby and try to make him take notice of things the better. A baby's brain at this stage needs to be kept from all unnecessary excitement. If a child's clothes catch fire, at once put him on the ground and throw something thick over him, such as a blanket or a mat, etc. Rol ling on the floor will also extinguish the flames. Never let him run about, as this will make the flames worse.

LAWS AGAINST KISSING. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911
LAWS AGAINST* KISSING. Among old laws against kissing those of Iceland appear to have been the mose severe. Banishment was the penalty laid down for kis; sing another man's wife, either with or without her consent. The same punishment was enforced for kiss ing an unmarried 'woman against her will ; if it could be proved that she had consented to be, kissed the offender was still liable to a fine of a great quantity of cloth for each of fence.

INKSTANDS WITH CUPIDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911
INKSTANDS WITH CUPIDS. Few if any inkstands can compare with the famous one in bronze which once belonged to Ariosto, and which Shelley saw in the library at Ferrara, where it still remains. In a letter to Peacock, the ooet described the ink stand as having an antique rather than an ancient appearance. 'Three nymphs,' he says, 'lean forth from the circumference, and on the top of tlie lid stands a cupid, winged and looking up, with a torch in one hand, his bow in the other, and his quiver beside. him-' Another Ital ian standisfi of note was that of bronze which belonged to Petrarch, and was at one time in the posses sion of Miss Edgeworth, the Irish novelist. This also was adorned with a cupid.

Dick Lorrimer was thinking things out, and judging by the look of his face it was a process which he did not find extremely ^asy. In truth, Dick Lorrimer, ais he sat at ' breakfast in his lodgings, had a somewhat serious problem in front of him, tor he was tninKing aDour getting married.

A Satisfactory Report. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911
A Satisfactory Report. Owing to a complaint received the Shire Council in a body inspected the sanitary waggon two months ago, and at last meet ing the President-expressed liis pleasure in being able to state that they found the v.-aggon in first-class repair an-J -condition. He tiiought that amotion should bo passed showing that tlie statements made in regard to the wag on were entirely false. Cr . Bunyan thought that the contractor should be complimented for the cleanliness of the waggon. Cr Browne said that ho always had the j fullest faith in reports received from their I officers. Cr Fraser ? said lie was responsible for bringing the matter before the council on the last occasion. Personally, he was thoroughly satisfied- with Mr Walker's report, but complaints were continually being made to him. Howover, he hoped now tbatthe quest-ion would be settled for ever.-' Tlie President remarked that in conver sation with tho Government Health Officer (Dr Diivies) that gentleman had sta...
EGG-BOUND. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911
EGG-BOUND. In the first place this is how such a state occurs. An occasionally and exceptionally large egg may pass successfully through the ovi duct in its plastic slate, but on the shell becoming hardened in its short sojourn in the cloaca it will encoun ter an outlet which, though of the normal size* is out 01 all proportion to the gigantic ovum to which it is expected to give passage. Or, again, a somewhat similar condition arises when the egg is of the nor .'.mal size,.. but- 'the .outlet, is narrow:. ' It is a good plan to watch birds that are about to lay. Should a bird visit the nest frequently during the course of a day and leave without deposit ing an egg, ti is fairly safe to as sume that something is wrong. For a pullet in such a state several re medies are recommended. Take up the bird gently, and hold her so that her stern is over the mouth of a jug of boiling water, that the steam arising therefrom may get to the parts, and help to relax and procure the delivery of th...

CLUCKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911
CLUCKS. A little sunflower seed occasion ally will improve the gloss on the plumage. Next to pure air, water is the cheapest,; thing .one.' can supply, .to poultry.^ Do not forget that it must be given in order to get eggs. Re duce the quantity and you reduce the egg supply. When there is anything the mat ter with your birds do not go into hysterics or rush here and there try ing to find out the cause. First of ail look for lice. It costs more to keep a poor hen than a good one Hens, to thrive and lay well, must have a variety of food, and they must have it clean and in a sanitary condi tion. The idea of shutting poultry up in small quarters and scattering the food around in dirty places, then expecting good results, is simply ridiculous. Yet how often we find flocks maintained under just such condition. If you find a soft-shelled egg oc casionally it means one of two things. Either tlie hens lack lime, or else they are being overfed, or they are not getting a proper vari ety.

THE ANTIQUITY OF GOLD-LEAF. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911
THE ANTIQUITY OF GOLD LEAF. The origin of gold-leaf is lost in antiquity. On some of the most ancient mummies discovered, gold leaf has been used on the skin, tongue and teeth, etc., and in some instances on the coffins also- It al so appears on tombs, monuments, and the like; and, strange to say, though gilding, with 'thin . sheets of hammered gold, ' '-and v' ' ' skins'* '61 gold'? : (otherwise gold-leaf), was known to. be practised at least in the eighth century B.C., the pro cess of bringing the gold into these fine sheets or 'skins,' was, one thousand, years ago, substantially the same as that used to-day, no ad vance Whatever having been made in the intervening nine centuries. On some of the Grecian poetry of the fifth century, the gold-leaf used is as thin as that now used, so that in re sults obtained, also, we have not ad vanced in the least, but still keep practically to the same average thickness as that used on the Egyp tion coffins of the third century, A.D., and most o...

Facts & Fancies. VARIES WITH CLIMATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911
Facts & Fancies. VARIES WITH CLIMATE. It is curious to note that the felt ed, hairy leaves like those of the Edelweiss are not found in the Arc tic regions, where the foliage is for the most cart remarkably smooth and green. In fact, where a plant is very widely distributed it may have smooth green leaves in Swe den, say, but the foliage wilPhave become hairy and grey should it be found in the south of Europe. The reason is, that the rough woolliness acts as a screen between the blazing sun and the leaf surface.
THE AGE OF BIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911
THE AGE OF BIRDS, The expert can, of course, tell an old bird at a glance, but to the no vice it is often a difficult matter to tell the difference between fully grown pullets and one-year-old or even two-year-old birds. I need not say that it is very important to se cure young ana neaitny Diras, ana the following hints may be of assis tance to the would-be purchaser: — (1 In an old hen the comb and wat tles look dry and scurfy ; there is a coarser appearance about the head, and the eye is sunken. (2) The scales of the legs are also much coarser. They look rougher and more horny-looking than the legs of young birds.. The nail of the last claw shows signs of much wear. (3) In the young hen the comb and wat tle are soft and bright-looking, the legs are smooth, and the claws show very little sign of wear. THe gene ral appearance is also one of activity and alertness. In judging the age of a male bird, the spurs are a good guide. Until the bird is a year old they will be short and the l...
HEALTH FIRST. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911
HEALTH FIRST. Everybody knows, or should know, that the constitution of the parent fowls is transmitted to the offspring in quite the same propor tions as are size, shape, laying quali ties, and so on. That being so, it is obviously imperative that onjy sound birds should be bred from- Somehow disease seems to be more . rapidly transmitted to offspring than health, I and therefore it is essential that all fowls subject to any disease should be excluded from the breeding pen. In fact, the safest plan is not to breed from any birds which have had dis ease at any time during their lives The increasing use of trap-nests has had a . tendency to induce poultry keepers to breed from layers without proper regard to other essential points which should be kept in mind. Much has been done within recent years to improve the productiveness of the hen by the selection of the greatest layers of the flocks as breeders and by mating them only with cocks descended from pedigree layers; but all this d...
RHODE ISLAND REDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911
RHODE ISLAND REDS. Rhode Island Reds may be suit-. ' able for show purposes, whether they, are rose or single-combed. They should be long, wide and deep jn body, and particularly wide in the breast. The whole body should be nicely rounded off, thighs and shank rather short, beak reddish horn col our, eyes red- The colour of the cockerel should be a bright cherry v red, and black is also allowed in the - flight feathers. Under-colour may : be red or salmon, but grey is a fatal objection. The hen should have a light golden red surface colour and : black tail, and black ticking at the end of the neck hackle. In colour the same as the cockerel, the shanks clean or free from feathers, and a - bright orange colour. Standard weight, 7flb. for cockerels, and 61b. for hens. Cockerels and pullets 1 lb. ' heavier in each case. Light bills, black bills, pearl eyes, and green in the leg colour are all serious faults.
