Random Readings. INKS AND FORGERY. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 15 April 1911

Random Readings. I INKS AND I-'ORUEHY. In "Knowledge" Mr. Aintworth Mitchell, who recently gave evidence in a case dealing with a forged will, has a striking article on inks, lnei dentaity he'lets his readers into the secret as to the tests which he ap- plies in order to discover the age of any particular piece of writing. If it is shown that the ink on a docu- ment purporting to be drawn up, say, ten years ago, is really quite fresh, then there is every chance that the writing has been'forgcd. An exam- ination of the colour of the ink may be helpful. Blue-black ink may be recognised as fresh up to the sixth' day, and in after years its age may be told when the blue provisional pigment has faded and left only the black. The blue colouring ns time goes on is hardly acted upon hy re- agents, but for a year or two it is. In fact, writing done within that time will at once diffuse if treated with a 50 per cent solution of acetic acid, whereas when it is five or six years old, diffusion,...

THE GAME OF NOBBIE. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 15 April 1911

THE GAME OF NOBBIE. The game of nobbtc requires two teams of five each ; Goalkeeper, back, right-wing, left-wing, and forward (or centre). A goal, made of two posts 5ft high, set 6ft apart and connected by a bar at the tops, is stationed at cacti end of an ob- long field, say, fifty by thirty yards, or smaller even. The players arc armed with nob hie sticks, which are like oak broom-handles a yard long. The playing end is nearly pointed, and in it is driven a nail, the head be- ing filed off, leaving only half of the nail protruding. Thc nobbies are made of two pieces of lin. rubber hose-piping ijin long, tied to the ends of a string that measures Gin between thc rings. The game consists in keeping the nobbies off the ground and carry- ing or throwing them through the goal. Each half is thirty minutes, and the total goals make the score. Thc teams line up with the goal- keeper at goal, the forward about .20ft in front, the back about half- way between, and the wings about loft to le...

A DIFFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 15 April 1911

A DIFFERENCE. A woman was rending about lions to her little boy. A little later the boy ran from a mouse, which amus- ed his mother. "I thought you were not afraid of lions," she said. "There is a good deal of difference between a lion in a book," the boy said, "and a real mouse." "Mother," said little Ethel one morning after having fallen out of bed, "1 think I know why I fell out of bed last night. It was because I slept too near the place where I got in." Then, after a moment's thought, she said: "No, that is not the reason. It was because I slept too near where I fell out."

JACK'S FEAST. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 15 April 1911

JACK'S FEAST. Now, Jack was the grocerymnn's delivery horse. He was a big, fat, slick, black fellow, and very proud was he of his nice shiny coat. Like a great many people he had the fault of too much curiosity.. He al- ways wanted to examine everything he could reach with his velvety nose. This day it happened that Jack on his daily round stopped a short distance behind another grocery waggon. In fact, there were quite a number of horses standing near. And Jack, tossing his head, proud- ly arched his neck as much as to say, "Just see me! I'm the pret- tiest horse here." But in front stood this tempting grocer's cart with its many queer sacks and mysterious parcels, such as Jack had often seen put into his own waggon. Now herc's a good chance, he thought, while the driv- er's away, to sec what these pack- ages contain. Up walked proud Jack and sniffed and pushed things about with his nose. Here was n white sack. "Hum! Smells good. I'll tear the paper to see what's inside," reasoned ...

THE FIGURE GAME. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 15 April 1911

I THE I-TGETRE GAME. Willy was sitting in tTie window scat, his brow puckered up over a slateful of figures. "Oh, dear," he sighed, "I wish 1 could make them look better!" Certainly there was sauce for woe, for Willy's fingers were clumsy. Thc fives looked as if their heads were coming off; the threes bulged out too much behind, anil thc nines were very queer indeed. Poor Willy had got so far along in his multiplica- tion Table that when his teacher told him to practice making his figures, his first thought was to rebel. "I don't want to practice," he had said. Hut the teacher turned away with a quiet, "Very well, then," which had made him, as soon as he caine home, sit right down and try as hard as he could to straighten out I lie crooked numbers. "Hello, old man!" called out his father, cheerfully, coming into the room. "What's the matter to- day? You don't look quite as happy as you ought to. School wrong?'' "No, sir," said Willy, "lt's not the school, it's 1. I've been prac- tis...

I For Young Folks, i I -* I THE PAIRIES AND THE I PANSIES I The pansy has as many stories as I it has varieties and names, but pcr I Imps the prettiest one is about the if fairies who painted the pansy.

I One fairy suggested that they .j make a new flower, and at last they I decided to take a big bcd of plain I white pansies and make them more § beautiful.

! Mr. Hartnoll AT DELORAINE. Mr William Hartnoll addressed a meeting at Deloraine in pursuance of his campaign for the Meander seat in the .Legislative Council. There was a fair attendance, which includrd several ladies. Those who did attend gave Mr. Hartnoll a very attentive hearing, and those sympathetic to his cause weie in the majority. The Warden (Slr. R. H. Symmons) was voted tn the chair and briefly introduced Mr, Hartnoll. Mr. Hartnoll briefly outlined the causes which induced him to contest the seat. He spoke in veiy friendly terms of both his opponents but criticised Slr. Hopes' acticn in vac- ating his present seat to contest Meander, and perhaps causing a cosily election to fill the vacancy. He criticised Mr. Hope's statement that he expected an easy victoiy which he described as bluff.

NOURISHING DRINKS. Mot milk as a nourishing and valuable drink in cold weather, es- pecially in the case of colds, has n" { rival. For those who are unable tn j drink hot milk tea made with boil- ing milk in place of water will he found most nourishing and palat- able. The tea should not be allow- j cd to stand in the pot above five minutes before using. Lemons enter largely into the preparation of hot drinks, and mu' dessertspoonful of pure lemon-juice with sugar to taste and boiling wa- ter is a refreshing drink by itself. It may be varied in the making a« follows : Grate the rind of two lem- ¡ ons, and add to it the strained j juice of both, place in an cnaiiul Í pan three gills of milk and one ii'M I of water, boil up, strain through a muslin bag, sweeten with two ounc- es of loaf sugar, and drink very hot.

Derby [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 15 April 1911

Derby DERBY.-The Musical and Elco utionary Competitions which proved so interesting when held under the auspices of the local Druid's Lodge appear to have fallan through. Ihis is a great pity as such events vii en well conducted are of great educational value. If some energetic residents would take the matter up -we feel sure that the result would be a great sncr.ess.»**v~.. : -. Interest in the approaching Coun- cil election appears to be very small Probably the Referenda poll com- ing at the same time has something to do with this. Brigadier Holdaway recently completed a tour of the North East Coast in connection with his trip amongst the various centres of Salvation Anny work in Tatmania. He held successful meetings at Derby Branxholm and Pioneer.

TONIC FOR THE EYES. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 15 April 1911

TONIC FOR THE EYES. Few people are aware what an ; excellent tonic a cold water hath is \ for the eyes. Not the ordinary sponge-bath with closed lids, but, j opening the eyes and holding them ; open for a minute or more in clear, cold water. To do this take a teacup ful of water and hold it close to the eye, against the face, and open the '. eye in it. Open and shut two or three times to wash out the eye. Then dry with a soft towel. Never rub your eyes; it is an exceedingly injurious practice, and children should be warned against it. Il your eyes are weak put a pinch ol sall in the water. When you have nothing to do, when you are simply resting, close your eyes and let them rest also. As long as the eyes are open they are at work to a greater or less extent, and oculists will li ll you that the moisture of the closed lids is good for them. Never press f the eyeball, as that flattens it and brings on premature loss of vision.

CHILDREN'S EYES. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 15 April 1911

CHILDREN'S EYES. j Weak and sore eyes are not in- frequent with young children, and it will bc found a good plan lo pour some tea which is all but cold in;o a saucer (kept for this purpose), and [ use this to bathe the eyes willi, li i both eves are bad, one should he f finished and dabbed dry before the t other is touched ; and, for the sec- } ond one, another rag should be used. * the tea thrown away, and a fresh j supply taken. The rags should he ¡ thrown on the fire directly thc\ are done with. All old white handker- chiefs ought to be kept, and put where the hand can bc re;.dily plac- ed upon them in case of emergenc- ies, as they are fine and soft, and yet. being old, no one can grudge burning them. Sponges are not nice to use again and again for bail eyes or sores of any description, as they may become impregnated willi matter, which even a disinfectant will not thoroughly dislodge.

HABITS THAT SPOIL DIGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 15 April 1911

HABITS THAT SPOIL DIGES- Í TION. i Eating when fatigued, or immedi- j ately after active exercise, should È be avoided. Digestion is worU ; f and when the body is fatigued the f digestive organs fail to do their | work. The result is injury, some- f times death. The habit of drink- \ ing lluids at meal times has been [ widely condemned ; but, as a mat- ter of fact, there is nothing in the I recognised facts of physiology to \ indicate that a moderate amount, \ of lluids at such times will do j harm, unless the fluid be used to j wash down half-chewed food, lt is difficult to make people under- stand that the fluid should be taken into the mouth only when thc mouth is empty. One of the favourite practices of thc rapid eater is-a big mouthful, a big swallow of tea, | coffee, beer, or water, and down ¡ goes the lot into the stomach which i cannot possibly convert the large, j hard chunks of food into blood j making materials. A good rule is ; to take but little fluid at meal j times, a...

LILYDALE.-Regret is felt at the removal of Mr. L. Howard (Home Missionary) to Mole Creek. However, the Methodists of Lilydale may be relied upon to give his successor a hearty welcome. Mr, Wheaton comes to us from Derby with a splendid record. Our previous importation from Derby, our State School teacher, Mr. S. Wellington, is winning golden opinions, and doing splendid work. We are well pleased here with our new teacher. BEACONSFIELD.-The supporters of Mr. Horace Walduck are anxious to know his ñnal decision as to standing for the Wilmot vacancy.

Easter Races. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 15 April 1911

Easiçr pacçs. j J -_,- ¡o: The above-mentioned events are the occasion tif drawing big crowds to Delaraine. Last year the num- ber of people cm Deloraine on Eas- ter Monday was estimated at any- thing from 7ooo to loooo. The re- turn rendered by the-tur' clu'> show- ed about 6,800 as the number on the ground, or with certain persons who are not reckoned in this list, about 7,000, so that probably 8,000, is about a safe estimate of the total population at Deloraine for the day. The 'I uesday crowd though not so large certainly attains very fair pro- portions. Business people, especially hotels and restaurants, look upon Easter as au occasion for reaping their annual harvest, and given decent weatner are never disappointed. Present prospects make the question of Easter weather rather uncertain, if however between now and Monday, it settles fine, there is every reason to expect that a record crowd will assemble. For some time past, horses have been wiving at Deloraine, from all part...
