THE ART OF CARVING. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 April 1914

THE ART OF CARVING. Carving is an art., as every house wife: knows, and o,specially those who, now and again, have experienced the vexation of seeing the joint, so much "hacked about." by the unskilful car ver that Hie only resource left, was to miiiee the meat. The good carver aims at. two things-to servo all as nearly equally as possible, with due attention, of course, to personal pre ferences for "under-done." "well done," not fat, and the rest, and-to leave the joint in a neat, condition, fit to return to t.lie table, if needed. An expert, on carving gives the fol lowing very useful detailed instruc tions: A loin of veal should be started at the small end and the ribs cut, apart and served with a piece of the kid ney and fat on each plate. A breast of veal should be separat ed from brisket, and both cut in pieces. If loins of veal and mutton are jointed by the butcher they will be more easily carved. A leg of mutton should be carved across the middle of the bone first, and then ...

PORTRAIT OF A GIRL. About wlio.se proud and famous name, this day, Are you ad ream? Your silken lashes seem Heavy with secrets your red lips 1 would say: Around your placid brow what rever ies play Their Merlin tune, In this light-hearted noon Of girlhood, with its green and golden May? Within your gentle, rosy-finger hands, Where lilies sleep, Great destinies you keep Thrice happy he who kneels to your commands! From that gold disarray, your crown, what strands Shall gleam anew Some distant day, when you Wrap round a smaller head these fillet bands! What though the stealthy years e;> croach, you'll wait With your slow smile, A brief, imperious while, Dreaming white dreams till Love smiles from the gate Then,' in the darkling years, may kindly Fato This solace lend My dim eyes, and forfend That gracious, gradual end to youth'3 estate W.

Gone Again. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 April 1914

Gone Again. At a certain public school it was the custom for the teachers to write on the blackboard any instruction they desired the caretaker to receive. One evening, while cleaning a room, the caretaker saw written: "Find the greatest common denomi nator." "Hullo!" she exclaimed. "Is that darned thing lost again." The Explanation. I "Fares, please," the collector said, and the woman handed him one ticket. "Boy will have to pay, too, madam," said the collector. "Oh," but he's only three years old," she replied. "Looks mighty old to be only three years old," snapped the collector. s I "Yes, he does; but, you see, he has been doing a lot of worrying," she an swered.

COFFEE MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 April 1914

COFFEE MAKING. To obtain the full flavor of coffee, it should be freshly roasted just bo fore it "is made. The French find it no trouble to do this in the homo, and their coffee is perfect in flavor and aroma. A coffee mill is not at oil an expensive item, and although a roasting machine is a more elabor ate apparatus, results almost- as good as the coffee of France can be ob tained by baking the coffee nibs for a few minutes before grinding thern in the mill. Coffee should alwayB bo kept in a fin with a tight-fitting iid, ;I.b it soon loses its delicate flavor if exposed to the air. A young preacher, wlio is much dis liked by his congregation for his fool ishness and concejt, considered him self greatly persecuted, and meeting an old German friend of his in the street one day, began to tell his woes. "And libe churchwarden actually called me a perfect ass," he conclud ed, "and my cloth prevents me from resenting insults, but I think I should refer to it in the pulpit next Sunday. W...

A NOTABLE MARBLE SCULPTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 April 1914

A NOTABLE MARBLE SCULPTOR. There recently died at Ivry, a Paris suburb, a remarkable old man, a sep tuagenarian, named Fraissard. He died in poverty, but bad he chosen lie could have become one of the most fa mous European sculptors. As it was, he finished life as he began it-more or less penniless. When a boy he was apprenticed to a marble-cutter, and he at onf, discovered his powers in this direction. For fifty years he had con tinued to execute the most beautiful works of art, mostly in mosaics. Monsieur Fraissard's masterpiece took him nearly twenty-four years to perfect. It is a black marble table. Jn the middle is a chess-board, on either side of which are playing-cards arranged as fans. On the table are dominoes and dice, cigars, and cigar ettes, and several coins in gold and sil ver. All these are, of course, inlaid. The materials in the table, beside the black marble, are agate, onyx, por phyry, malachite, and lapis lazuli, the tones of which are black, red, orange, blue, a...

ON MARRYING A FACE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 April 1914

MARRYING A FACE. Many men have married only a face, to have their imagination satisfied by what they considered to be beauty. As a matter of fact, when there is only a face, beauty is simply impossible. In such a case beauty is not a (luestion of form, or outline, or color; the deep est beauty, the truest and most abiding beauty, can only be secured in association with mental and moral qualities. The form itself may bo de stitute of beauty, and yet in the very face and figure there may be a strange and happy fascination because of Uhe energy of the indwelling and all-d'irect ing life. To imagine that face-beauty will last, supposing it to be nothing more, is self-delusion of the most vex atious kind. Where face-beauty is as sociated with mental beauty, so much the bettor. Never forget., however, the old proverb which says "Handsome is that handsome does." Beauty of char acter will outlast beauty of form and beauty of color. The latter may be pleasant, enough for a few days, but cati...

WE SWANKED ON NOTHING. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 April 1914

WE SWANKED ON NOTHING. When Jim and I were first married daresay we wore over-careful about money. To begin with, wo hadn't much, and when two young people start housekeeping, however carefully they settle just what things they must have and what these are going to cost, other expenses always crop up, and there isn't much left of the savings at the end of it all. So naturally they start, by being as economical as pos sible. Then the children came, and we had to think three or four times over every penny for a bit. But after a few years, when George and Mary were old enough to go to school, things be gan to look up. For one thing, Jim left the foundry and took up with motors, and made very good money. Then my grand mother died and left me fifteen pounds, as I'd always been her favor ite. And finally Jim put up for the District Council and got elected, so that he felt we ought to make a bit more of a show than we had done in the past. First of all, we must needs move out of the cottag...

MAN-EATING FOXES. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 April 1914

MAN-EATING FOXES. That the fox may be a man-eater ar pears from experience in Upper Pied mont, Italy. A young woman, acci tamed to -wander in the mounta gorges, disappeared, and after a time some articles of clothing belonging to her, surrounded with footprints of foxes, were discovered at a point nearly a mile aibove sea-level. As there were no other tracks, it was concluded that,, while stupefied with cold or fatigue, the woman must have been attacked and eaten by these an imals. It is no good marrying a profes sional beauty and expecting her to make a good sick nurse. You might just as well buy a diamond tiara and expect it to turn into a flannel petti coat.

ABOUT CLEVER KIDS [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 April 1914

ABOUT CLEVER KIDS By One Who Has Suffered. I was sitting in the Green Park pondering the address I was to give to the Try Excelsior Class for Boyrj Only that evening. I had nearly hit on - a novel epithet when the child arrived. It had escaped from a nursemaid, ?who was absorbed in reading "The Marchioness of the Mill" on an ad joining seat. The infant squatted at my feet, remarked confidentially, "Nice mud, daddy," and proceeded to investigate the mud. I ignored its claims to be my offspring, and pro ceeded with the construction of my oration. Then the genial gentleman arrived and seated himself beside me. "Delightful child," he said. I grunted. "Easy to see who's his father," he proceeded, glancing from me to the child. I started. Was this infant to be forced upon me? . Talk about forcible feeding what of forcible fatherhood! "Unmistakable," said the genial gentleman. "I suppose he says a great many sharp things." "There I differ. So far this after noon he has said nothing but 'Ni...

CORRECT BREATHING. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 April 1914

CORRECT BREATHING. No piece of advice that the phy sician can give will bear more fre quent repetition than the pithy sen tence, "Breathe Deeply." It is a per fectly simply rule of health, yet it is constantly broken. There is no rea son why our lungs should not have all the fresh air they need for their work; the supply is unlimited. But in our folly we refuse to give them their fair share of it, because we are too lazy to breathe deeply. We go on from day to day drawing in little, inadequate puffs of air, living from hand to mouth, as it were; and then we wonder why we feel tired and nervous, why our skin is sallow and our eyes dull, why we catch cold eas ily and digest our food badly. When things have come to this pass there is nothing for it but to put ourselves to school, and learn patiently to do what we wero meant to do unconsciously. There are two ways to learn to breathe. If our powers of self-disci pline are poor, as is tho case with most insufficient breathers, it is a go...

A DARING ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 April 1914

A DARING ACT. A scout of the Confederate army during the American Civil War, Wat Bowie by name, was a young Mary land lawyer at the, time the conflict began. He was captured and taken to Washington, and sentenced to be hanged. He made his escape, how ever, and the following incident, told by W. G. Beymer, in the "On Hazard ous Service," shows the coolness and audacity with which he escaped re capture on one occasion "He blundered into a camp of the enemy one morning at dawn, and saw instantly that retreat was impossible; they were ready to open fire with a dozen revolvers. Without hesitation, he strode up to the men and shouted indignantly " 'You make mighty free with my rails! With all this wood around you did not need t.o burn my fences!' "He seemed very angry. "'Who are you?' a corporal stam mered. " 'The owner of the rails, of course!' And then, apparently somewhat mol lified, he went on, 'Well, well! War is war; but don't do any more damage than you can help, boys.' "He sat dow...

REVEALED BY A SPECTRE. Founded on Fact. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 April 1914

REVEALED BY A SPECTRE. Founded on Fact. Andrew Somerville was a rich old man, whose heath-environed cottage door was never closed against the poor, ucl" uid ever the hungry o wretched leave liis threshold un; lieved. Though fond of company, spoke little and mused much, and his gloomy, wrinkled "brow and troubled eye bespoke a troubled and anxiow spirit. The night was dar' and the bias-, blew with piercing violence, when a weary stranger's eye caught the blink of Andrew's taper afar off, and with hasty steps and many an impatient look, he bent hia way across the bleak moor, to seek shelter and lodging at the house which contained the wel come light. Soon he was seated by the blazing fire, and having told his story, solicited permission to stay till sunrise. "I never," replied Andrew, "lodge strangers, though I willingly allow their wants; so rest awhile, and share the humble food my cottage affords. I cannot, however, lodge you till morn ing." The poor wanderer, glad even of this, ma...

SONG OF THE PRINTING PRESS. "See the league-long web of paper fly ing free.

Then your comprehension's tangled in the maze, In the maze, In the mighty, heaving, whirring, maze.
