CARRUM [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 17 January 1914

CARRUM Says a Metropolitan weekly:- A letter from the Automobile Club to the Dandenoug Shire Council deserves to be framed and preserved as a piece of cool, callous cheek, The Club "Complained that the sanitary carts in the shire were pulled up in the middle of the roads," thereby, of course,slightly delaying the mammon. istio"motahists," who think that they and they alone,, have a monopoly of the King's highway. The facts of the incident complaih 1 of by the club were that, about a week oxr two ago, the sanitary contractor for the South riding was in charge of his carts, and attending to his duty, and, at the same time, the in. terests of the'. ratopayers. Up dashed some motor hogs, and shouted and swore at the council's employe, telling him to get out of the way. Though he did his best to let them got past as quickly as pos. sible,'they recklessly rushed through his vehicles, knocking his horses down, and then sped on without rendering him the slightest assist. anuce to put his de...

The Worst Cook. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 17 January 1914

The Worst Cook. Not only are Englishwomaen the worst cooks; they are the most ox travagant cooks. They actually be liove that there must be a certain am ount of waste in cookery. The dust bins of London aro mute witnesses to the wicked and shameless waste that goes on in our kitchons. Sometimes as I pass along the street and look at them in the early morning I wonder that an angry God does not visit us with pestilence as a punishment for exhibitions of mouldy bread sour po tatoes, ends of meat and fishi in these reeptacles, , Two persons - one ot them doing the cooking in a tasteful, economio manner, can have the dain tiest, most delicious and nourishing food in great variety on 10/ a week in London, oven with the present high prices. It takes thought, it takes care, it takes common sonse,1 and m takes time. These are things the average ]Englishwoman refuses to give to her preparation of food, and therefore a woman of many gifts and graos in other directions, she is the worst cook i...

What do you think about Cheltenham? [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 17 January 1914

What do you think about Cheltenham ? By A, P. Wilson. Such is the question which is often asked me, and so universal is the interest that a few remarks may not be amiss, and, as a preacher must get his points under firstly, etc. I will speak. Firstly, the people : The first thing that strikes me as I move about among them is their homelikeneso. The front door of most homes is gener, ally locked, but the back door is a'lways open, and one is glad not to be shown into the drawing room, to sit on straight-backed chairs, and drink infinitesimal cups of tea and eat cubic inches of cake. I just feel at home, as hot and dusty, I come into the cool, darkened room, ad have a quiet chat. Then there is their thoughtfulness, Scarcely a weep passes, but there is some evidence of their thought in little gifts or kindly words. Yes, the folk at Oheltenham are homelike. Tient, again, there is a wonderful ah-.,uce of hypocrisy. Each person sbeLus to say exactly what he or she means, and it is rather ...

NOISY WINDMILL. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 17 January 1914

NOISY WIND.iIII, To the Editor. Sir,-Will you permit me to call your attention to the annoyance caused to residents by a windmill in the township, which is for ever "on the squeak." For hours at a time this mill proceeds to grind out an un earthly constant shriek, painful alike in its tone and reiteration. Can any. thing be done ? If the machine would only work eight hours a day the noise might be bearable, but it works three shifts. Will you receive donations towards a bottle of oil ? Surely the owner will use same if residents provide the supply. I will willingly send my first three penny instalment.-Yours, etc., THE LIMAIT, Cheltenham, 13th January, 1914. [We regret being unable to re coive donations, as suggested by our correspondbnce.. If tihe contents of the letter are not exaggerated, we believe a polite hint to the owner will be sufficient. If not, somebody must " bell the cat," and proceed against the alleged disturber of the peace?-Ed. "News,"]

He has heartily co-opetated with his colleagues, Crs Groves and Rain, and their combined efforts have added much to the develop ment of the seaside portion of the shire. Pressure of private business is Mr M'Leod's sole .ireason for resigning. Perhaps if the town hall were at otne of the seaside townships, the resignation would not be necessary. Busy people, actively engaged in the city's com mercial life, can ill afford the time to travel to Dandenong for the pur pose of at...

Electric Light Supply FOR ASPENDALE, CHELSEA AND CARRUM. No. 2. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 17 January 1914

Electric Light Supply FOR ASPENDALE, CHELSEA AND CARRUM. No. 2. That electricity is fast becoming the universal power is being very plainly demonstrated all over the world, We are continually hearing of its being installed to supersede other forms of energy, a fact which is being brought forcibl. home to us in the electrification of the Mel bourne suburban railways. The uses of electricity in the home are of even more interest to the average reader than these larger projects. The uses to which it is put in solving the servant question are many and varied. The rivalry between gas and electricity is very keen, and even where gas or other system has already been installed, electricity is fast taking its place. It must be admitted that there is the same num ber of heat units in electricity as in gas, when taken at the quantities obtained for a given sum, at present local prices, but the overall cost for cooking is in favor of electricity. The ease of handling, and the minute regulation ...

WATER SUPPLY FOR STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 17 January 1914

WATER SUPPLY FOR STOCK. An old friend of our London corres poadent, the loading dairyfarmer and breeder of Ayrshire cattle in the West of Scotland, writes to a local paper on bhis important subject which, he says, receives too little attention from the stock owners: - So long as an animal will drink it, no water is considered too foul for horses or cows. Not only is this ne glect on the part of stook owners rea ponsible for many cases of colio in hor sea, but many other diseases also aro directly traceble to impure water. An unlimited supply of good, pure water is essential to the health of all animals used for farm purppses. Pools formed from surface drainage, where largo quantities of organic matter are car ried into them and wells or pools contiguous to farm yards or manure heaps are specially to be avoided. Water from good tanks or wells, run-. ninug streams, and properly construe. ted pools is usually good, but too mucn care cannot be taken in this matter. The quantity of watei...

HEROISM IN HOUSEKEEPING. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 17 January 1914

HEROISM IN HOUSEKEEPING. So many talents are wastet, so ianny enthusiasms turned to smoko, so many lives spoiled for want of little pa tienco and endurapnce, for want of un. derstanding and laying to heart the meaning of "the present'"--for want of recognising that it is not the greatness or the littleness of the duty nearest hand, but the spirit in wliclh one does it, which makes one's doing noble or moan I can't think how people, who have any natural ambition, and any sense of power in them, escape go. ing mad in a world like this, without the recognition of that. I know I was very near mad when I found it out for myself (as one has to find out for onesoelf everything that has to be any real practical use to one). Shall I tell you how it came into my head ?
