CURIOUS ERRORS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 April 1914
CURIullS ERRORS. Curious errors have sometimes been made during the process of 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 Yorlc was credited with the possession o£ 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 sucli fliurch 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...
DREAMS AND DREAMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 April 1914
DREAMS AND DREAMERS. There arc sr.'.l, even in '..his oaliplit ened age, a number of supers!:'ions individuals who attach a meaning to certain dreams, m.:I WOO will eagerly refer to books oil ihe subject, ii; older that they may asctrfa'u the purport of some nocturnal reverie that is prob dliy the outcome oC a bal digestion. If the sleep be sound, (lie digestive aud other organs me iu action, and the sleeper will pass a perfectly un disturbed night. If, hoiv.i'.Tv, any of the 'bodily functions are at all out of order, and more especially the diges tion, the nervous system will af fected, and all imperfect conscious ness will be the result. A dream is nothing more or less than an imperfectly formed thought, caused mostly by the individual not being at the time alive to the sur roundings; and the imagination, not being under control, will wanc^r un checked by circumstances, and the dreamer is under the impression that the ideas that flit through the brain are things which are actually...
WRECKERS OF MEN AND NATIONS. The Smile and the Wile of Woman. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 April 1914
WRECKERS OF MEN AND NATIONS. The Smile and the Wile of Woman. Empires have fallen before the wiles of woman. Rome sang of the j achievements of Antony. Antony look ed into the eyes of Cleopatra and laid down honor and life. Louis XV. dallied with the Pompa dour and Du Barry until his kingdom tottered. The royal roue died and left his grandson and heir a heritage of death. Mary. Stuart played at love with many men until she lost her throne and at last her head. I These women have been the lure that led men to destruction. They baffled scientists and sociologists. By all the rules of the game they should have been wholly creatures of evil. Some were, ibut that others of them were warm-hearted, impulsive and be witching to good and bad people alike is a puzzle to alienists. When face to face with the lives of these wreckers of the world, scientists hold up their hands, shake their heads and say: "We cannot tell you about it-may be some day we can, but not now; it is too much to expect ...
KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 April 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. Used in water as a daily gargle, borax keeps the throat healthy. Used in water for cleansing the teeth it "disinfects" tliem and prevents their decaying. In wet weather clean the windows with chamois leather in the usual way, then sprinkle a little flour on the pol ishing duster. The result will be an easy and a brilliant polish. Should the inkpot be accidentally upset on tablecloth or carpet, pour a little cold water over it at once.^ The ink will float on the water, and when cloth or carpet is rub-bed dry no stain will show. To prevent inferior potatoes from appearing watery when cookcd, scrub, then score the skin lightly, length ways and across, all the way round, Boil in salted water. They will then be dry and floury. Before using a new saucepan al ways fill it with water. If not an en amelled one, add a lump of soda anil potato peelings and let it boil for some hours. Then wash out thor oughly, and all danger of poisoning from the tinned lining will be pre ven...
GREASY HEELS IN HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 April 1914
GREASY HEELS IN HORSES. By G. Heslop, B.V.Sc., in the "Journal of Agriculture." Grease is a term used to denote a diseasce condition of the skin and subcutaneous tissues situated at tlie back o£ the fetlock joint. It is char acterised iby the production of vesi cles and pustules, which exude a par ticularly evil-smelling greasy dis charge, and which, as the disease pro gresses, brings about the 'formation of numerous wart-like excrescences, commonly referred to as "grapes." This condition of "grapes" is similar to that produced iu a wound where there is an excess of granulation tis sue (proud flesh). The tissue has a plentiful 'blood supply, and if injured bleeds freely. It thus acts as an irri tant, retarding healing, and assists in the continuance of the disease >by forming ridges and furrows over the affected- surface, in which greasy dis charges accumulate. Grease can 'be divided into two stages: - (1) Where there is a formation of vesicles followed by pustules, which finally...
"LOOKING BRONZED AND WELL" [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 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 reccntlj 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 fect of the active rays of light-a su perficial scorching of the outer skin. If it goes too far, it has a destructive effect. In fact, sunburnt people are suffering from a slight attack of dor matitis! Perhaps the reason why people on their holidays often suffer so acutely from the biles of mosqui toes and gnats is because dermatitis, or scaling of the skin, facilitates the entrance of poison Into the skin. Just as many of the unemployed are unemployable, most of the un loved are unlovable.
A VICTORIOUS VENTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 April 1914
A VICTORIOUS VENTURE.! I By John Rankii It was a spring twilight. Lord Eric Norbeck stood gazing over Croxton Woods. They were his. But they could not long remain so. "I shall certainly lose them," he mut tered. "I can retain if I wish. But at what a price! Should I pay it?" The sound o£ a light step reached his ear. He turned to look at the p»sser-by. His face lit up as he re cognised her. "An unexpected pleasure, Miss Ath erton. It is rarely you travel this road so late and alone." "My cousin Mildred wished to see a fashion journal. I travelled over to Stratgburv to fetch it." "A three-mile, walk to gratify a whim. The means seem out o£ pro portion to the end." "The walk has been pleasant. Crox ton Woods are lovely in their spriug freshness. I have just 'been admiring their beauty." "That is what 1 was doing when you approached. Croxton Woods are the most familiar thing in my life. It would be a great wrench for me to forsake them." 1 "Surely you are not thinking of do-1 ing so?" ...
Past and Future. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 April 1914
Past and Future. "Well, liow are you to-day:' asken the physician cheerfully to the society loader. "Well, doctor." she replied, "the cold 1 caught Tuesday is a little bet ter, thanks to your prescription. But the cue 1 caught Thursday is much worse. The thing I called to see you for, however, is the severe cold I caught fast night." The doctor sat down and wrote a long line of hieroglyphics. "Here," he said, "is something for the one you will catch, this evening with that V-neck and those. skimpy skirts. Good afternoon."
MANURES FOR WHEAT. ALL THE PROFITS. HOW TO GET THEM. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 April 1914
MANURES FOR WHEAT. ALL THE PROFITS. HOW TO GET THEM. By A. H. Renard. Expert ia Modem Agriculture. Author oi "A.B.C. of Rational Manur ing" and "A.B.C. o£ Scientific Stock Feeding." Evory fanner is interested in get ting the largest income in the year and in getting it with the minimum of worry and anxiety. To make money it is necessary to spend money, as every farmer knows. Something of value cannot be got for nothing in these modern times. Every farmer has certain unavoidable expenses to meet-cost of seed, fallowing, inter est on value of land, living expenses cost of labor, etc.-and he has to get his return from a limited area of land within a limited time. Let him com mit to memory the following axioms of successful manuring of wheat and work in close accord with their teach ings; then everything will go right with him. Wheat Manuring Axioms. 1. Citrate soluble phosphate is the only natural form of soluble and available phosphoric acid. 2. Phosphoric acid extracted by the crops,...
WRITTEN IN RINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 April 1914
WRITTEN IN RINKLES. Nothing is more damaging to beauty in woman than worry. The worrying woman invites the hand of time to write plenty of wrinkles on her brow, and round her eyes and mouth; to tint her face yellow, and give dullness to the eye that no artifice can brighten. Worrying, moreover, is quite unneces sary, and is a total waste of energy which could be employed in doing something useful. Everyone knows the worrying woman the moment they seo her. Her character is written in her face in wrinkles which apparently nothing short of ft miracle could ob literate. A couple of Jews were discussing the award of a railway company over an accident in which both of their wives had been sufferers. "Vol, gompensation did yer git, Ikey?" asked Mo. "I got fifteen hundred quid." "Fifteen hundred quid! 'Vy, I only got five." "Ah, yiiB. But you see, I zad the presence of inind to kick my vife's teeth out." She: On what lines did my fathe: object? He: He objected to the marriage lines.
The Hint That Didn't. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 April 1914
The Hint That Didn't. For ton long but blissful yours they had walked along tUo path of love: but as yet the love-sick youth had never mentioned about their getting married. Courtship is very charm ing, but when there does not seem to be altar rails at the end of it girls naturally begin to lose interest in the game. Anyhow, Jane thought it time that the marriage day was fixed, so she threw out a gentle hint to licr lover by way of encouraging him. Encour agement, she thought, was all the dear fellow wanted. "Nathaniel," she whispered, coyly, "they're saying we're going to Is"! married soon." "Are they, though?" answered the stolid swain. "What a joke it'll he on them when they find out we ain't."
GOOD HERDS ESSENTIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 April 1914
GOOD HERDS ESSENTIAL. The dairy cow is one of the best solutions for the problem of the high cost of living. She not only furnishes cheap, wholesome, and nourishing foods, in the products of the dairy, but the manure, if saved and properly used on the land, will accelerate larger crops and more pro fits per acre. But we must have good herds. Probably in no other industry con nected with the soil is there more ne nessity for a complete reorganisation of the methods of working than in dairying. Although we have an in comparable climate for dairying tho business is unsound nt its base through the use of any kind of ani mal in the shape of a cow. No sane man would think of sowing the same kind of seed for a grain crop voar after year when he found by practi seed was less than one-half what it cal test that the yield from that seed was less than one-half what it should be. Yet men will go on milk ing and rearing calves for future use from cows which do not actually pay for their keep or ...

CHAPTER XXIV. Deus ex Machina. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 April 1914
t CHAPTER XXIV. Deus ex Machina. Ronald Halldare sat gloomily in his "study" as lie called his breakfast room-half-gunroom, half-library. His untasted breakfast was before him. He had not slept. He had no appe tite for food, for last night he had been summoned by Gwendolen to hear the whole truth-how she had mar ried Robert in a mutual lit of youth ful passion while they we're staying together in Scotland, and how at last her certainty that "the pretender" was Robert and no other had driven her to interrupt his marriage with ' the squatter's daughter from Aus tralia." He recalled the interview-how, in his first bitterness, he had reproached her with a lingering affection lor the lover of her youth and how she had blazed with wrath. She had never looked handsomer, a grander creature, than when, fac ing him in scorn, she had said, "If he were to be killed if I did not "ac knowledge the wretched lie, I would not do it!" at the same time, when, in his passion of mingled anger and love, ...
The Great Montamor Cage. CHAPTER XXIII. Galling Bonds. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 April 1914
The Great. Montamor Sage. By ALICE M. DIEHL, Authoress of "The Knave of Hearts,"' CHAPTER XXIII. Galling Bonds. Strangely enough, when her belov ed, the betrothed husband whose marriage with her at the rural parish church had been roughly interrupted by the woman of whom he said, "I married my cousin Gwendolen-she is my wife," Netta was relieved, con soled, rather than overwhelmed. In these crises o£ lite, memory is as vividly awakened as all the other mental faculties. NqlUi remembered that for fifteen long years her Robert bad been dead to his old surround ings and every human soul they en vironed. She recollected that so long a desertion of any wife would go lav to break the tie in the case of any man. She reasoned, in a Hash, that all was not lost. The law might help her-and her beloved. "But supposing you did marry her, dearest, you deserted her! if she chooses, she can set you free-at ease, I understood the marriage laws freed a woman from a husband who had deserted lier only ...
THE DEAR OLD FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 April 1914
THE DEAR OLD FARM. 1 remember, I remember, the house ?where I was born; The gaps between the siding where the sun came in at morn; The nail-heads that in winter wore a crown oE silver frost, The small old-fashioned window-panes 'by the same hand embossed. I remember, I remember, the stove pipe through the floor; The kitchen stove that, always fed, was always wanting more; The coal I used to carry, the wood I had to get; The boots that stuck so tightly when 1 used to get them wet. I remember, I remember, the grind stone where I ground Some forty million sickles-how I turned it round and round Till at last I felt like dropping-asked if we were not most through Learned that we were nearly finished; just another hour or two. I remenrber, I remember, how those summer nights would speed; How I thought that I could never get the sleep I seemed to need; I recall the voice that w Ice me when the dear old clock struck four, And the ever-ready bootjack that hung up behind the door. I remember,...
CHAPTER XXV. Release-and Arrest. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 April 1914
CHAPTER XXV. Release-and Arrest. As usual, the solicitors on liotu sides did not make their clients dance attendance at the Courts of Justicc until their presence was ac tually required. One morning Gwen dolen, seated at the breakfast table with the faithful MISs Durnford, re ceived a telegram bidding her to be at her solicitors' offices in an hour the case would be on during the morning. "What a mercy!" she devoutly ex claimed-although she paled to the lips. "Oh, Dumpie-my release is in sight-don't you think so?" "My dearest girl, I am sure I hope so," returned Miss Durnford cautious ly. "But when people have come to my ago they have learnt not to think this or that. They only hope and trust." "Don't damp my spirits or you will have mo collapsing utterly and dis gracing myself!" cried Gwendolen. "Let us think what "sort of a get-up is likely to influence the Court. What! Mr. Hale mentioned my dress the other day. I have not the faintest re collection oT it." "i>o wonder, all thi...

DOOKIE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 April 1914
DOOKIE. A shocking accident befel a young man named Joseph Muntz, employed on the farm of Mr W. Sutherland, Katandra, last week. Muntz had just finished feeding a foal when it lashed out, striking him full in the face and almost severing the nose. He was brought into Dookie, and Dr Kelly ordered his removal to Mooroopna hospital. Some trouble arose amongst the grape pickers at the Chateau Dookie vineyard, and a strike had been close at hand. Small were the grievances of the men concerned, and their re- quests, when brought before the management, were granted — that they should be allowed two glasses of wine per day, one hour for "smoke-oh," and &nbsp; a Saturday half-holiday. The grape- picking is nearly completed At a meeting of the Dookie branch of the A.N. A. it was decided to write to the Railway Commissioners to see if any action is to be taken in connec- &nbsp; tion with the opening of the new rail- &nbsp; way station. At the fortnightly meet- &...
