REVEALED BY A SPECTRE. Founded on Fact. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 9 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, ncl" aid ever the hungry o wretched leave his threshold un> lieved. Though fond of company, h spoke little and mused much, and his gloomy, wrinkled "brow and troubled eye bespoke a troubled and anxiouf 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 his 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,...

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 9 April 1914

KITCHEN WRINKLES. ... To purify a cistern tie charcoal in a bag and drop it in. Celery may be freshened by being left overnight in a solution of salt and water. When making blue-water for- clothes add a little salt to it. This distri butes the color evenly and prevents "patches."' Cook cauliflowers in milk and water —it gives them a better flavor, and they look whiter than when cooked in water.. Sometimes boot polish becomes quite dry with keeping. Moisten it with a little turpentine. It softens the polish, making it usable at once, and also gives a good gloss to the leather. If at any time you should have a gathered finger or poisoned hand, take a cabbage leaf, roll it out with a bottle until the juice comes, and tie it on the affected part. This will draw and cleanse it far better, than a poultice. When using oil stoves, to prevent them from smoking, dissolve one tablespoonful of common salt in every pint of paraffin oil that you use. This also gives a much clearer light, and it p...

CURIOUS ERRORS. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 9 April 1914

CURIOUS ERRORS. Curious errors have sometimes been made during the process oE ■.transcription, and no one acquainted with mediaeval manuscripts can be very much surprised. But, as a cor respondent of "The Yorkshire Post" points out, it is somewhat strange that, when once a mistake has been made and found its way into a print ed volume, it is well-nigh impossible to eradicate the error. For instance, mediaeval York was credited with the possession of a parish church de dicated to St. Bridget, and in all ec clesiastical histories 'of the Munster city St. Bridget's invariably appears in the long list of parochial churches. But it is beyond doubt that no such church ever existed. It simply came into the lists through a copyist"s blunder. A capital G was misread as B, and a bad quill or careless writer turned an "e" into an "i," with the result that St. Brig, appeared in stead of St. Greg., and so St. Bridget came into being. But though the mis take has been repeatedly pointed out, and t...

WHAT "TONNAGE" MEANS. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 9 April 1914

WHAT "TONNAGE" MEANS. The launching of the Queen Eliza beth,. Britain's latest huge battleship, was ' accompanied by the publication of the usual details concerning her, in the course, of which such terms as "displacement," "gross tonnage," "dead-weight capacity," . and "net re gistered tonnage" were used. To all but: shipping men, these terms are confusing, if-not misleading. •• The word: "ton,'' ior instance, is "not used as it' is ordinarily applied, but is a measure of capacity, and not of weight. ' Each ton ;in such cases re presents 100 cubic feet. "Displacement" means the avoirdu pois weight of water displaced toy a steamer when she leaves a port laden to-the Plimsoll iniark. In this parti- - cular case, "ton" means weight—that \ is,' 22401b. Thirty-five cubic feet of water weighs a ton, and after the number of cu'bic feet occup'ed 'by the vessel: below the water-line is ascer- ' tained, all you have to do is to di vide "the total iby 35, and you get the displaced water in .a...

"LOOKING BRONZED AND WELL" [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 9 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 o feet of the active rays of light—a su perficial scorching of the outer skin. ■ Tf it goes too far, it has a destructive • effect. In fact, sunburnt people are suffering from a slight attack of der 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 ientrance of poison into the skin.

POTATOES AS A FOOD FOR PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 9 April 1914

- POTATOES AS A FOOD FOR PIGS. Prom Germany comes ail account or ■ experiments that should 'be of interest to agriculturists at this time. They demonstrate the possibility of profit from swine husbandry. These 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 441b., 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 slightly over 21b. maize meal, while another got ibe tween 9 and 10 lb. potatoes. Both-lots made good progress, producing on the average about lib. of pork daily and ■lib.6 live, weight increase for ajbout 41b. meal. The interesting point, how ever, is the profit. The maize was valued at £8 8/- per ton. The pota toes ;iwere charged at 33/6 and the grain,v."or pease-meal, cost £9 6/...
