MATTERS FEMININE COLUMNS. IWttMl Hilts. Essence of pennyroyal effectively keeps away mosquitoes. The odour is a powerful one, and they will not come near it. When uncorking a bottle, be sure to grasp the neck with a cloth in your hand, so that if the glass cracks or breaks it will not cut you. Eat slowly.

FOR THE SICK PERSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911
FOR THE SICK PERSON. The sand-bag is invaluable in the sick-room. Get some clean, fine sand, dry it thoroughly in a kettle on the stove. Make a bag about 8in. square of flannel, fill it with dry j sand, sew the opening carefully, and cover the bag with cotton or linen. This will prevent the sand from sift ing out, and will also enable you to heat the bag quickly by placing it in the oven or even on top of the ' stove. ! After once using this you will never again attempt to warm the feet or hands of a sick person with a bottle of hot water or a brick. The sand holds the heat for a long time, and the bag can be tucked up to the back; Without. hurting the invalid.
SHAKESPEARES WEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911
SHAKESPEARE, S WEALTH. The question of Shakespeare's fin ancial position in the later years of his life is ^raised by Charles Wil liam Wallace in the 'Century Maga zine' : — 'A large ' fancy ..has hitherto as sumed that Shakespeare's yearly income from his share in the Globe was from five to six hundred pounds — in modern money possibly from four to four thousand eight hundred pounds a year. Multiply that by fourteen, the number of shares at Shakespeare's death, or by sixteen, the number after his death, when Nathaniel Field was admitted, and we have a grand total of assumed profits of from fifty-six to sixty-six thousand eight hundred pounds. This sort of 'biogrjfphica! fancy' pic tured Shakespeare as a shrewd busi ness man who, having accumulated large wealth, scorned the noble art of poesy after it had served such merely sordid ends, retired to his country residence at Stratford; and there lived the life of a wealthy gen tleman.'

BLACK, WHITE, AND LONG PEPPER. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911
BLACK, WHITE, AND LONG PEPPER. When the berries of the pepper plant are growing, says Mr. James Scott, in an article in the 'Maga-, zirie of Commerce and_ British Ex porter,' they are full-bodied, glossy, and green. While ripening they turn. red, and they will ultimately become quite black if allowed suffi cient exposure to the sun. The wrinkles that are noticeable in com mercial peppercorns are due to shrinkage after gathering, as certain inner layers of soft cells collapse They are gathered before they be come mature, if black pepper is to be prepared. When, however, the manufacture of white pepper is in contemplation, tTie berries are allow ed to ripen on the plants before be ing collected, and require soaking in water for the removal of the husks- 'Black pepper' consists of the whole berries crushed, and '?'white pepper' of the kernels only. 'Long, pepper™ is composed of the unripe flowers or fruiting spike of Piper longum dried in the sun.

TRUTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911
TRUTH. ? f ? ? The value of truth is that it is real. , An unpleasant truth is better for.the mind than a pleasing lie that flatters vanity.: A man should be grateful even to his enemies when they open his eyes :to a sense of his own faults and failures. Far more should he thank his family and friends for doing the same thing for him in a spirit of love. To resent kindly rebuke is not a sign of spirit, but of stupidity. ' The wisdom of the heart, is worth all other wisdom.— Southey.
