SUBSTITUTE FOR A GLASS CUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 15 January 1914

SUBSTITUTE FOR A' GLASS ■ ■ CUTTER. ■; ]t sometimes, happens thut whon one has- to cut glass a glass cutter is not at liaml, or tho one in use is worn out. The 'following will make a good .substitute : Tuke uu old file, break the end and it will be found that one corner .will gene rally have a very sharp edge, which will cut glass quite' ns well us any cutter. Of ... course it soon wears down, but it is merely necessary to break a small piece off the file uRuin, and it will be as slmrp -us before. In warming n steamed pudding, or j ill steaming n stale cake, never put the article on a plate or a flat dish. ' riace the pudding in a colan der in the .steamer, and you will bo surprised to find how much lighter ami more delicate the pudding will be than if a plate had been used for the moisture to settle on and make tho pudding stodgy.

Customs in Regard to Bowing. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 15 January 1914

Customs in Regard to Bowing. (liy Jlrs. FltANIC LEARNED.) One of the tests of good breeding, training-, and culture is in. the man ner in which a bow or salutution of recognition is made. A brusque, abrupt manner is ;rude. A very effusive manner and a low* bow are worse. The correct salutation is between the two extremes. .^Although according to circumstan ces; n bow "niny bo cordial, friend ly, formal, slight, deferential or (amilinr, it must be made. A person who has been introduced is entitled to recognition. An important rule about bowing is that a man must wait for a lady to . recoguise him. Between friends the act of bowing is almost simul taneous, but it is tho privilege of a woman to take tho initiative by being the first to bow. As lias been said, an introduction entitles every one to r bow. Only for very 'gravo reasons would anyone ever give a direct "cut," when the claim an introduction imposes has been absolutely forfeited. In a case where there has been inexcusable cond...

Discovery by Accident. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 15 January 1914

Discovery by Accident. About the discovory of oil in Pa pua an interesting story went tho rounds of tho I'ress a year or two ago. A British traveller noticed j a taste of what he thought was kerosene oil in his ten, and relinked his native boy for carelessness. Tho boy protested that he had allowed no oil to get near the kettle in which tho water was boiled, and, on investigating the source from which the water was obtained, his master found ft- film of crude oil floating on the top, which gave tho keroseno taste to tho tea. On his return the traveller told tho circum stances, and in consequence the dis trict was explored, with the result that evidences of petroleum wore found. Early last year a young foreigner Mr. Felix Gre^in, was sent to Pa pua by a London syndicate, and ho took with him a portable tnachino for the purposo of drilling for, oil. He put down two wells, and in tho first of these petroleum was found at a depth of 228ft. A second wqll gave signs of petroleum at u dept...

The Largest Practice. » For the Inst, decade or so every surgeon visiting the Unite.I States has made a point of going to see the? Mayo Clinic »(• Rochester, Min nesota . This unif|iie organisation might, the 4 Hospital ' thinks, justly be called the Mecca of tho surgical world at the present date ; and it cerl.tinly attracts pilgrims from even more diverse regions of the earth lhaii the famous Arabian city does. Rochester, it may be premised, is (piite a small town, hardly more than a big village, in Minnesota. In this out-oMhe-wny spot two sur geons, the brothers Mnyo, have built up a private practice in operative surgery, and that practice is, beyond all doubt, many times larger than any other in the world. They have a private hospital of three hundred beds, in which an average of thirty operations a day are performed. The gross receipts of this under taking have been estimated at half a million a year.
