"LOOKING BRONZED AND WELL" [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 April 1914
"LOOKING BRONZED AND WELL" The expression, "looking bronzed and well," is a favorite one with re porters, yet, as a doctor has recently said in one of. the medical journals, a face browned by sun and sea breezes is not a sign of health, and "looking well, although bronzed," might be nearer the mark. Sunburn, says this specialist, is simply the ef fect of the active rays of light-a ou perficial scorching of the outer skin. If it goes too far, it has a destructive effect. In fact, sunburnt people are suffering from a slight attack of dcr matitis! Perhaps the reason why people on their holidays often suffer so acutely from the bites of mosqui toes and gnats is because dermatitis, or scaling of the skin, facilitates the entrance of poison into the skin.
POTATOES AS A FOOD FOR PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 April 1914
POTATOES AS A FOOD FOR From Germany ccfmes an account or experiments that should be of interest to agriculturists at this time. They demonstrate the possibility of profit from swine husbandry. Tliese exper iments were designed to test the value of potatoes as compared with maize in the principal food in the rations fed to pigs. Forty-three, twelve-weeks old, and weighing about 44ib., were put up for five months to fatten. They were given a fixed basal ration, which on the average amounted to a little over 21b. grain meal and 3oz. of fish meal per head per day. In addition to this, one lot got slighlly over 21b. maize meal, while another got be tween !) and 10 lb. potatoes. Both lots made good progress, producing on the average about lib. of pork daily and lib. live weight increase for aibout 41b. meal. The interesting point, how ever, is the profit. The maize was valued at .£8 8/- per ton. The pota toes were charged at 33/G and the grain, or pease-meal, cost ,£[) 6/8, .while the fis...
THE FOLLY OF FRETTING. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 April 1914
THE FOLLY OF FRETTING. Don't worry yourself. It won't do any good, and you'll make yourself a nuisance to all your friends. Worry wears more than work, and you begin to look miserable and can't eac more than one plateful at dinner, and you have pains in your head and can't sleep. Suppose you try and find the bright side, or try to make or do any thing but stare and talk about the blackness. Nobody ever (lid any good yet by what country folka call "stuff ing and stewing," which means keein ing one's mind in worrimeiit and agi tation, and wondering whether this thing will come right or that thing fail. Go straight ahead in the even tenor of your way, and probably you \\ ill get along better than any amount of fretting would allow ;ou. lake things quietly. Don't be too much up set or agitated about anything. Do yoji know that five minutes of high excitement takes as much out of a person as five kours' hard work, and ten minutes' dew grief will often make one downright ill. Strive to ke...
SELECTING THE MILK COW. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 April 1914
SELECTING THE MILK COW. Nearly every good milk cow pos sesses certain points of conformation which indicate her milking qualities; The first important point is that sjie shall show a lean or bony form, with a sharp prominent backbone, ribs wide apart, sharp withers and incurv ing thighs. This indicates "dairy temperament," or, in other words, that she will turn her feed into milk instead of beef. Next she will have a long, deep bar rel, well sprung ribs, broad muzzle, and a strong jaw, these points indicat ing capacity for consuming larger amounts of feed. Third, she will show a hardy con stitution. which is indicated by a large heart girth, a deep chest, large open nostrils, and a large wind pipe and lung capacity. Fourth, a good dairy cow should have an udder of good size running well forward and hung up well be hind. The region of the pelvis or the hips is wide, as is also the space be tween the thighs as viewed from be hind, giving ample room for a large udder. A large udder is ...
What Was His Reward? [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 April 1914
What Was His Reward? The occupants of the railway car riage were listening with joyful inter est to the tales of the young man in the corner. He had b en all over the world several times, apparently, and his adventures had 'been marvellous. "Coolness and courage are the things," he was saying. "Take this case: We were in Central Africa, tra velling among cannibal tribes. One evening, when we camped, I had strolled off while my men prepared Bupper, when suddenly above a rock in front of me I saw the headB of three natives who were watching me. What was I do do? My gun was at the camp. To turn back mean.t having ^pears through me. In a moment I *ecided. Close by were some stones. .Pretending I didn't see the niggers, I bent down as if to examine the stones; then, quick as lightning, I picked up three of them and flung them with all my force at their heads. Every one found its mark, and the three natives dropped like sheep. I always take a good aim, and it served me well then." iThen t...
Ended Happily. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 April 1914
Ended Happily. As the farmer's wife laid down the magazine that she had been reading and soulfully sighed, her husband glanced up from his newspaper. "What's the matter, Maria?" asked the old man. "Have ye finished that ?tory?" "Yes, Henry," answered Maria, "just this very minute." "I s'pose," said Henry, resuming his paper, "that it ended happy?" "Yes," answered Maria. "The beau tiful heroine got over a long spell of sickness, an', what's more, the story gives the najfle an' the price of the medicine wflflC Cured her." Men always think a woman inter esting when they hear she is pretty, but they don't' think a woman is pret ty because they are told she is in teresting. "Hoard's Dairyman" advises as a relief ifrom milker's cramps for the person affected to bathe his hands in pure alcohol ievery evening for five or ten minutes until they cease to cramp any more.

ON THE EDUCATION OF DELICATE BOYS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 April 1914
ON THE EDUCATION OF DELICATE BOYS. A great deal of nonsense, as it seems to me, is often talked about the danger of allowing 'boys who are deli cate or suffer from some physical in firmity to face the supposed rigorB of public school life. It is supposed in many quarters that a weakly boy, at one of the big schools, has his life .nade a iburden to him by his compan ions, and runs the risk of having his .health completely shattered. If the school is carefully chosen and is one in which there is anything approach ing a decent tone, I cannot help thinking that the opposite of this is almost invariably the case. Boys have more natural good-feel ing than they are sometimes given credit for, and in a good school the greatest consideration is shown by the .boys for a companion who suffers from some physical disability. More over, the watchful care which a .boy receives at school (particularly if the medical authorities have ibeen warned beforehand), coupled with the regular life and discip...
KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 April 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. Used in. water as a daily gargle,.. borax keeps the throat healthy. Used' In water for cleansing the teeth it "disinfects" them and prevents their decaying. In wet weather clean the windows with chamois leather in. the usual way,, then sprinkle a little flour on the pol ishing duster. The result will "be an: easy and a brilliant polish. Should the inkpot be accidentally upset on tablecloth or carpet, pour a little cold water over it at once. The ink will float on the water, and 'when, cloth or carpet is rubbed dry no stain will show. To prevent inferior potatoes from: appearing watery when cooked, scrub, then score the skin lightly, length ways and across, all the way round. Boil in salted water. They will then be dry and floury. Before using a new saucepan al ways fill it with water. If not an. en amelled one, add a lump of BOda and potato peelings and let it boil for some hours. Then wash out thor oughly, and all danger of poisoning from the tinned lining will he...
"NEDDY'S FOOTING IT NOW. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 April 1914
"NEDDY'S FOOTING IT NOW. At a certain railway station in the North of Ireland a farmer was wait ing for the train with a donkey he had purchased. On the arrival of the train at the station the farmer asked the guard where he would put the donkey The guard, who was in a hurry, replied, "Put it behind," meaning to put it into a horse van. Pat tied the donkey to a buffer and then got into the carriage himself. As the train was flying along at express speed Pat, turning to a com panion, said, "By gosh, boy, Neddy's footing it now!"
THE DEAR OLD FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 April 1914
THE DEAR OLD FARM. I remember, I remember, the housej where I "was &lt;born; The gaps between the siding where the sun came in at morn; The nail-heads that In winter wore a crown of silver frost, The small old-fashioned wlndow-panea (by the same hand embossed. I remember, I remember, the stove pipe through the floor; The kitchen stove that, always fed, was always wanting more; The coal I used to carry, th6 wood I had to get; The boots that stuck so tightly whfen I used to get them wet. I remember, I remember, the grind stone -where I ground Some forty million sickles-how I turned it round and round fTill at last I felt like dropping-asked if we were not most through Learned that wo were nearly finished;, just another hour or-two. I remember, I remember, how those summer nights would speed; How I thought that I could never get the sleep I seemed to need; I recall the voice that w ke me when the dear old clock struck four, And the ever-ready bootjack that hung up behind the do...
MAN, THE MONSTER: HIS DEEDS AND MISDEEDS. A Speech by a Famous Suffragette. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 April 1914
MAN, THE MONSTER: HIS DEEDS AND MISDEEDS. Speech by a Famous Suffragette. The history of the past and present, my sisters, is colored crimson with the deeds and misdeeds of Man, the Monster. He stays out late and comes home ? early. He breaks open the children's money-boxes and buys Wild Woodbines with their dear little far things. In the olden days he would neglect his wife while he went to the tourney; now he neglects her while he goes to the Old Bull and Pear Tree. In those same olden days he would make of her a beast of burden, now he burdens her with beasts-what with his ferrets, his dogs, his pigeons, and his gramophones! In fact, blood is on his hands; his feet are on the crooked path; his eyes are alwas picking out winners that have a pain in their legs and his mouth is always occupied with a quart pot or someone else's half-pint glass. He is a wretch, a brute, a prevarica tor, and perfect wash-out. All the crimes in the calendar can be laid to his charge. We have Nero-he pl...
The Hint That Didn't. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 April 1914
The Hint That Didn't. For ten long but blissful years they bad walked along the path of love; but as yet the love-sick youth had never mentioned; about their getting married. Courtship is very " charm ing, but when there does not seem to be altar rails at the end of it girls naturally begin to lose interest in thp game. Anyhow, Jane thought it time thai the marriage day was fixed, so she threw out a gentle hint to her lover by way of encouraging him. Encour agement, she thought, was all the dear fellow wanted. "Nathaniel," she whispered, coyly, "they're saying we're going to be married soon." "Are they, though?" answered the stolid swain. "What a joke it'll be on them when they find out we ain't."

"What do you mean toy the best part of one winter?" . "Well," said the witness, after due deliberation and reflection, "I've Ueen up there about eleven months."
WRITTEN IN RINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 April 1914
WRITTEN IN RINKLES. Nothing is more damaging to beauty in woman than worry. The "worrying woman invites the hand of time to write plenty of wrinkles on her brow, and round her eyes and mouth; to tint her face yellow, and give dullness to the eye that no artifice can brighten. Worrying, moreover, is quite unneces sary, and is a total waste of energy which could be employed in doing something useful. Everyone knows the worrying woman the moment they see her. Her character is written in her face in -wrinkles which apparently nothing short of a miracle could ob literate.
WRECKERS OF MEN AND NATIONS. The Smile and the Wile of Woman. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 April 1914
WRECKERS OF MEN AND NATIONS. The Smile and the Wile of Woman. Empires have fallen before the wiles of woman. Rome sang of the achievements of Antony. Antony look ed into the eyes of Cleopatra and laid down honor and life. Louis XV. dallied with the Pompa dour and Du Barry until his kingdom tottered. The royal roue died and left his grandson and heir a heritage of death. Mary Stuart played at love with many men until she lost her throne and at last her head. These "women have been the lure that led men to destruction. They baffled scientists and sociologists. By all the rules of the game they should have been wholly creatures of evil. Some were, (but that others of them were warm-hearted, impulsive and he witching to good and bad people alike is a puzzle to alienists. When face to face with the lives of these wreckers of the world, scientists hold up their hands, shake their heads P.nd say: - "We cannot tell , you about it-may be some day we can, but not now; it Is too much to expect...
