FROM VARIOUS SOURCES [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 6 June 1913
' FROM VARIOUS SOURCES The Turkey-Trot, . the Bunny-Hug, and the Tango seem likely to die out of dancing.. After all, the morals and manners of the fowlyard and the-rab bit-warren seem hardly suitable for the ballroom; though they may be con sidered grotesquely entertaining on the stage. Anna Pavlova, who is proI> ably the greatest dancer in the world, says that these things are "abomina tions and travesties," and after such a diotum the most fashionable thing will be not to admire them, but to ex clude them rigidly from ball pro grammes. The only thing, to be dread ed is that every debutante may feel that it is her duty to try to dance like Anna Pavlova, an attempt which would turn the modern ballroom into a r.hocking silectacle.- Nothing could be worse than to behold some lean, lanky, young tiling with a slight spinal curva ture, eminently fitted by nature to dance like a turkey, endeavoring to emulate Madame Pavlova in lier grace ful movements as a swan. The Bunny Hug is, perh...
Serious Gun Accident. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 6 June 1913
Serious Gun Accident. A. very serious accident happened to Mr W. W. Murray on Saturday last at his residence " Hartmoor," Oaklands. It appears that Mr Murray took his gun from the house to shoot some crows, and returning to get something he had forgotten left the gun standing by the wall and just as he came out of the door his dog rustled past and knocked the gun over causing it to go off and Mr Murray received the full force in the leg just above the ankle. The patient was re- moved to Uruna and the limb was ampu- tated by Drs Macknight and Paton. At the time of going to press the patient was in a very low state and &nbsp; doubts are expressed as to the probability of his recovery. Sincere regret is felt on all sides for Mr Murray was well known in the dis- &nbsp; trict and highly respected, his family being among the oldest settlers in the Oaklands district.
New Bank Premises, Oaklands. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 6 June 1913
New Bank Premises, Oak- lands. The local stuff of the National Bank are now in possession of their now pre- mises, a building well fitted for the busi- ness which has expanded to such an extent as to cause the directors to erect such a comfortable business and resident- tial quarters. The Banking Chamber, Manager's Room and spacious Strong Room are of brick cemented, on reinforced cement concrete foundation. The elevation although plain, is neat and presents a substantial effect a few feet back on each side of the porch, which stands boldly out to the building line. The porch contains double swing doors which, we understand, is the practice of the bank where promises faces the north and west, and should be found a great advantage in the summor to keep out the heat and dust, and as a further protection, the windows are fitted a with external canvas blinds. The Banking Chambor is fitted with &nbsp; desks, counter, etc., containing every convenience for a counting house. These ...

HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH YOUR LINEN? [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 13 June 1913
HOW- DO YOU DEAL WITH YOUR V LINEN? ' This Is a matter-of importance, for, with proper treatment the household linen can be made to last half-as long again, with a corresponding reduction. In the draper's bill, For instance, instead of always foul ing table-cloths and sheets' •longtl^iBP,, fold them across occasionally,' so that ' the position of the folds is changed. This will be found to prevent the cloth cutting, which often happens ' when the same fold Is constantly ' used, . .1 Wino stains may be removed from 1 linen by immediately covering the .spots with salt while still wet. The ■ salt absorbs the wine "in a few mln . utes. It the wine lias been allowed to 'dry, moisten the stains with boiling water and rub the spots well with salt; then pour boiling water over till the stains disappear. When linen has to be put away, it' should be left unstarched, or It .will ■crack, and even, If left, for a long time, to rot. . Fold it in blue paper, which will lteop it from turning yel lo...
THE LURE OF AUBURN LOCKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 13 June 1913
THE LURE OF AUBURN LOCKS. It,is not easy to understand why red-haired- girls are so attractive to men, but the fact Is Indisputable that it is so. .A' red-haired girl is never a wall-flower at a dance, and she is almost surd of a seat In a crowded trumcar. 'Men are ulitwyti gallant to the red-haired girl. All artists,.love red hnlr. Indoed men as a rule love red-haired women —that is,'all except red-haired men, for there is'an.,inexplicable but none the less certain antipathy Tietweon red-haired' men 'and red-haired wo men. One reason'for man's admira tion may be that red liair is generally .accompanied by certain qualities that make a woman-,very, attractive. The. finest complexions; In-the world, are nearly always,;,. found on red-haired ■ girls. And these sun-kissed girls-have i blood that' is ' warmer and (lows more' swiftly tlian that In the veins of their less favored sisters. ThiB often makes them Impulsive, hot-tempered, and Jealous, but, it ;always makes them af fectionate,...

A STINGING TREE. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 13 June 1913
A STINGING TREE.:' ; One of the most wonderful of the many strange forius of plant life to be found on the Queensland :coast is the giant nettle, or stinging tree, call ed "Gxmple" by the natives,, from which the world-famed .Gympie' Gold fields took their" name. "" This nettle' grows into a-large .handsome tree, Ivith big, broad leaves, as large , as a pmall dish, each one covered with a fine, highly-irritating powder, in addi tion, to the usual stinging hairs' com mon, to the nettle family. This fine powder, if applied to the kin of a horse, will drive the unfor uiiate animal raving mad, and any one moving about among the trees is attacked with violent sneezing, and all the symptoms of heavy, catarrh; while, if unfortunate enough to come into contact with the leaf or stem, one experiences the sensation of grasping red-hot iron. Almost imme diately after being stung the glands under the" armpits, begin to swell, and become acutely -painful. Tho only known antidote to this poison is...

A REPUBLIC OF MONKS. Mount Athos, the strange "land of monks" on a peninsula in the Aegean Sea, is still to be regarded after the Balkan War as an independent' ec clesiastical republic. So, It Is said, the Ambassadors of the Great Powers in London have decided. ' At present "the Theocratic Republic of the Holy Mountain," to give It > its full title, is administered by a coun cil elected by the several monaster ies. The Greeks thus have a, large permanent majority on the council, as they possess seventeen monaster ies, although, the number of monks at Rosikon, the Russian monastery with its numerous dependencies, is considerably greater than that of all the monks in the Greek monasteries put together. There are also three other monasteries, respectively Ser vian, Bulgarian, and Roumanian. .The common seal of the council is kept by the four senior members, and is divided into quarters for the purpose. The monks, of whom there are, or were a few years ago, about Beven thousand five ...
