When She Began To Think. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 15 April 1914
When She Began To Think. "Biddy," said Pat timidly, "did ye Iver think o' marryin'?" "Shure now," said Biddy, looking de murely at her shoe--"shurd now, the subject has niver entered me mind at all. at all." "It's sorry, O am," said Pat, and he turned away. "Wan minute, Pat," said Biddy soft ly. "Ye've set me thlnkin'." The ignorance of the masses on ar tistic matters is appalling (said Mr. Walter Emanuel, speaking at a dis cussion on "Execution in Literature and Painting" at the Authors' Club recently). He was-passing through one exhi bition recently 'when he saw a group of persons. One of them said, "Is it a droring?" The reply was, "No, stupid, it's an itching." A third Derson interrupted and said, "No, you are .both wrong; it's a pas tilie."
KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 15 April 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. A strong solution of borax poured down sinks and drains will banish of fonsive smells. A little ground almonds mixed through a fruit cake will prevent the fruit sinking to the bottom. If you want to heat a flat-iron in your room, a tin plate over the gas jet will enable you to heat the iron ;vice as quickly. Before blanching almond: soak tlhemn for two or three minutes in bolingu water; the skin will then slip oft quite easily. Scorch marks on lineu may be re moved by rubbing with a froes:-cut snioe, the garment being aftervards soaked in cold water. To stop hiccough, give the pa:tient a teaspoonful of granulated sugar and vinegar. If this does not afford in stant relief, repeat the dose. When boiling any kind of green3. use sugar in place of soda, which gives the greens a much better flavor, but they then require a little longer cooking.

THE FLAW. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 15 April 1914
THE FLAW. Within the church a chant ascends, The flower-decked aisle divides The bridegroom's relations and friends From those that are the bride's. And he is there, a stalwart youth Of manly charm possessed. And she, a prize in very truth, In pearly satin dressed. The vows are made, the prize is his, Yes, really his, at last! But as he claims the nuptial kiss His brow is overcast And when the Joybells peal on high, When wine and speeches flow, There comes into his sparkling eye A furtive look of woe. Beside him sits his chosen bride, In his she slips her hand, But though she £miles on him in pride She does not understand. His hidden anguish, though acute, Must all alone be borne The toecap of his patent boot Is pressing on a corn. -Jessie Pope.
THE LOST LAKE OF GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 15 April 1914
THE LOST LAKE OF GOLD. Somewhere in north-western Ari zona-the precise whereabouts is now a matter of conjecture-is a lake of gold formed by Nature. On Decem ber 13, 1838, a party of gold-seekers,. twenty-two men in all, were prospect ing in north-western Arizona when they came ulpon a band of nomad Apaclhes, who lad with them consid erable gold, in the shape of nuggets and dust. After many pressing ques tions as to where they had obtained it, a Ilalf-bred Mexican volunteered to guide the white men to the spot for a consideration. iHe led them three hundred miles over a wild and desert country, to a spot near the head waters of the Gila river, where there were three mountain peaks in the form tof a triangle. Here was a dried-up lake, the ancient bed a jumble of nuggets and gold-dust. The prospectors shov elled £40,000 worth into sacks, and twelve of them set out with It to Fort Yuma. They never reached Yuma, however, for they were am bushed and killed by Apaches In a defile since kn...
Let It Go at That. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 15 April 1914
Let It Go at That. A lady who is a district visitor be came much interested in a very poor, but apparently respectable, Irish fam ily named Curran, living on the top floor of a great building in a slum dis trict of her parish. Every time she visited the Currans the was annoyed by the staring and whispering of the other women living in the building. One day she said to Mrs. Curran: "Your neighbors seem very curlous to know who and what I am, andl the nature of my business with you." "They do," acquiesced Mrs. Curran. "Do they ask you about it?" "Indade they do, ma'am." "And do you tell them?" "Fafth, then, I do not." "What do you tell them" "Ga ioust tell them," was the calm reply, "that you are me dressmaker, an' clet it go at that."
MAKING THE BISHOP LAUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 15 April 1914
MAKING THE BISHOP LAUGH. Probably one of the prettiest com pliments ever paid to the fair sex was that contained in the answer made by Dr. Potter, Bishop of New York, who was once asked by a lady why, in the many pictures and studies of angels exhibited, the angels were always de picted either as women or as young men without beards or moustaches. "Everyone knows," replied the Bishop, "that women naturally inherit the Kingdom of Heaven, but men only get in by a very close shave." This story is related by the Rev. T. Selby Henrey, ricar of St. George (Brentford), whose little volume, en titled "Attic Salt," provides many an illustration of the fact that wit and appreciation of humor are not the least prominent characteristics of lead ing divines. He tells a story of the late Dr. Creighton, who once received a book from a second-rate author, to whom he replied by post, "I thank you very much for forwarding to me your book, and I promise you faithfully that I will not lose any time In ...

MILK JELLY. Milk jelly or .blane mange is nour Ishing as well as refreshing and if carefully flavoured, is generally liked. The flavouring should be varied as much as posslble. To nald a small qusartr-pint "pot of black currant jelly to a pint of the blunc-mnange lavours it very pleasantly, while brandy, almnondl, lemon and r·anilla can also be used to mpake variety. .Junket is an exrellent food, and, if served writh whipped and flavour ed creani,' is extreimely nourishing. ,Milk soup is delicious if cnrefully made, andt quite, inexpensive.

Steel Barrels Made to be Nested. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 15 April 1914
Steel Barrels Made to be Wested. A new and inuenious tyv' of st?~el harrel so dcii"ned a? to prmirt comipact stora.t when shipped! emn.t is to be piacel on the in.tr't abroad. Tme chiet fecnturt atett this barrel is that t is n.tuk t halves that are cxa~:ctly illlIr. with flanges prouide. so that ant two halves cann be olte.l together to fornm a complete barrel. In the shipping world bulky articles like harrels, when shipped nemlty, are charged at bulk tonnage rates. Bar rels of this type, when neated cornm pactly, will be entitled to weight rates, reducing the shipping charges materially. This invention brings~ to mind the fart that in the old days of the whaling industry ships were often compelled to put to sea with out proper ballast becautse of the fact that all the available space was occupited iby empty barrels.
