ITEMS OF INTEREST. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 April 1914
ITEMS OP INTEREST. According to figures supplied by the Railway Department there are still 53,000 bags of wheat stacked at the Yarrawonga railway station awaiting removal. A sheep from a small lot purchased by a butcher at Murchison and killed had its teeth thickly encrusted with gold. Efforts are being made to locate the country on which the stock grazed. Judging by reports from various parts potatoes are likely to be a high price this year. In several districts the crops are proving almost a failure. In Gippsland the tubers are infected with worms. The Strathbogie output will be the lightest for many years. A party of miners while driving on the line of reef at the Lord Brassy mine, at Bright, suddenly broke into a small opening, which, upon examination, proved to be a wombat's burrow. The owners measured the distance to the surface, and found it to be 100ft. When the burrow was prospected, it revealed golden stone, upon which the discoverers are now operating. When the Shepparton...
What Causes Typists' Cramp. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 April 1914
What Causes Typists' Cramp. -------&lt;&gt;--------- (By Wm. LEE HOWARD, M.D.) &nbsp; What is known as writers' cramp, telegraphers' paralysis, and similar conditions where the worker becomes useless because of physical incapac- ity of his hands or arms, is now found to be an affection of certain brain cells. The recent marvellous discoveries in the physiology of the brain and nervous system which modern psychology has stimulated show us that all attempts to re- &nbsp; gain the loss of power in the hand or arm by electricity, massage, or &nbsp; drugs are wrong. Any individual who is daily occu- pied in work which calls for a con- stant automatic use of any parti- cular member of the body, such as the typist, the telegraph operator, or the linotype man, is liable to what it is customary to call, " cramp, or paralysis," of the particular mem- ber. The truth is that the muscles or tissues of the affected parts are not in the least affected — noth...
WIDOW'S WEDDING LORE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 April 1914
WIDOW'S WEDDING LORE. ----------&lt;&gt;------------ It may not be well known, but there is a peculiar etiquette attach- ing to the ceremony of a woman's second wedding. It is possible for her, should cir- cumstances permit, to marry as often as she chooses, but only once in her life is she allowed to carry orange blossoms. This is when she stands at the altar for the first time. On the same principle, it is not correct for a widow to wear white at her second marriage ceremony. Cream, grey, heliotrope — indeed, any colour she prefers — is permissible. The bride of experience also should never wear a long bridal veil with or without a bonnet. Neither is she allowed to wear a wreath on the short veil which etiquette permits her to don. She may, however, carry a bouquet, but this should not be composed ol white flowers. It is considered better taste for her to match the colour of her wedding gown with the floral decorations. The " bridesmaid " of a widow also is not cal...
COFFEE MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 April 1914
COFFEE MAKING. To obtain the full flavor of coffee it should be freshly roasted just be fore it is made. The French find it no trouble to do this in the home, and their coffee is perfect in flavor and aroma. A coffee mill is not at all an expensive item, and although a roasting machine is a more elabor- ate apparatus, results almost as good as the coffee of France can be ob- tained by baking the coffee nibs for a few minutes before grinding them in the mill. Coffee should always be kept in a tin with a tight-fitting lid, as it soon loses its delicate flavor if exposed to the air. "So you proposed to her. Accepted, of course ?" "Accepted ? Why, she treated me like a dog." "Allow me to congratulate you, old fellow. I saw how she treated one the other day, and, by Jove ! how I en- vied that dog."
WIT OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
WIT OF THE WEEK. Success isn't so much getting what you want as getting what other peo ple want. When a girl is as pretty as a pic picture it may be because she does her own developing. Anything that has to be whispered brings men and women nearer to gether-naturally. There are very few words on a page after the first chapter of most real-life love stories. Many a woman who otherwise has excellent eyesight cannot see through her own husband. For most people marriage is a game of chance, but for some women spinsterhood is a dead certainty. "The happy couple had known one another for only five short weeks be fore their wedding." Think of it. And plenty of miserable couples don't know one another twenty-five long years after their wedding. A coquette is a rose from which every lover plucks a leaf-the thorns are reserved for her husband.
WHAT WE EAT. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
WHAT WE EAT. I£ you are of average weight, height and appetite, and live to be seventy-five, you will have eaten fifty four tons of solid food and fifty-three tons of liquid. That is. about thir teen hundred times your own weight. If you were to stack the bread you have eaten in this number of years, the pile would equal a fair-sized build ing. The amount of butter you will have used on this bread would come to a ton and a quarter. If you are a lover of bacon, and were to stretch that which you have eaten out in single slices, four miles would be the length. Five tons of fish and 12,000 eggs would stand to your credit, while the normal cheese eater would easily have consumed 4001b. The vegetables you will have eaten would fill a train three miles long. You will have consumed some 10,000 lb. of sugar and l,5001u. of salt.
Wanted Hanging. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
Wanted Hanging. One morning two celebrated art critics proceeded together to view the pictures in a certain gallery. On en tering the ante-room they found themselves opposite to a number of very long looking glasses. Turning before one of these, one critic remark ed to the other: -'You've come here to admire works of art. Very well, feast your eyes on that work of nature," pointing to his own figure reflected in the glass. "Look at it! There's a picture for you!" "Yes," said the other, regarding it intently. "Very fine-very fine, in deed. Then, turning to his friend: ] "Wants hanging, though,"
THE UNDER DOG. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
THE UNDER DOG. Now here is a song of the under dog, The down under dog in the fight; For though he is down, and he's terribly down, Maybe he's the dog that is right. U isn't the eur who is largest, you knew, Whose morals are always the best. And a sanctified pup with a halo, 1 trow, Might succumb in a physical test. IE might could be right-but it cannot you see, And I think you'll admit it were quaint If a blacksmith must always the best of men he. And a bruiser must pose as a saint. The man who succeeds may succeed as a knave, ; And in morals be fearfully light, And that's why your sympathy kindly I cravo For the weak under dog in the fight. So here is a cheer for the poor under dog; He is not the strongest, but then, It may hap that he's better by far than the dog That chews him again and again. His stock may be finer, his loyalty proved. And I think you will hardly demur, \V hen I say that quite often the dog. on the top Is the scurviest kind of a cur. And as the rule runs in the...
"WRITERS' GRAMP." LONDON SCIENTISTS TRACE CAUSE TO BRAIN FAG. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
"WRITERS' GRAMP." I LONDON SCIENTISTS TIIAQE CAUSE TO BRAIN FAG. Biological tests by scientists at the London Hospital show that "writer.';' cramp" and other similar states c' apparent muscular paralysis arc ac tually due, not to the tiring of the muscles, but to brain fag. It appears that the particular pari of the brain which controls' spccia" combinations of nntscle-aclion, such as the movements of writing or the working of a telegraph key, t.rml to become more quickly .exhausted in some individuals than in others. Suc'i exhaustion leads to a slats i:i '.\hich the brain is actually unable to sen I out its necessary messages to th. hiinds and fingers to write, tap a key, hold' a -violin bow, r.nd so forth. Furthermore, once tin nerve cells, the "'batteries" of the brain, get thoroughly run down, it is not easy to restore their energy. Heretofore it has been supposed that all troubles of the Hn.l were due simply to overtiring of the mus clc-s corns:lied. ?New York "WorM."
His "Mug" Betrayed Him. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
His "Mug" Betrayed Him. The fresh - complexioned young policeman from the country betrayed by his self-conscious air the disquiet ude he felt on first going on duty in a London street. He was particularly disturbed in mind by tlie behavior of a street arab, who sat on a kerb smok ing a succession of "fag ends," and regarding him with a fixed serenity of ga;:e worthy of Sam AVeller himself. Waiting until lie thought he was un noticed, the new constable approached the urchin. "Now, then," began Robert, "what are you slttin* there for all this time?" "Takiu' a day off in the country," replied the arab. The inexperienced "peeler," perfect ly new to the species, stared at the product of slumdom in undisguised amazement. "Takin' a day off in the country!" he echoed. "Why, wherever can you see the country from 'ere?" "In your mug, o' course," replied the arab at last, swiftly vacating the kerb.

The Meek One. II is true that the meek have not yet inherited the earth, but at least one of thorn got even wih one of lie haughty a few days ago. He had spent several hours sweltering in a -waiting room before the great mail would con sent to see him. When he finally found himself in the august presence, the great man drew out liis watch and remarked in a lofty way that -was in tended to be impressive: "I can spare you just ten minutes." The meek man's eye flashed fire, then tie laboriously drew out his watch and proceeded in this wise: "I am sorry, but I can spare you only live." And before th& great man had recov ered, the meek man had sold liim a half-interest in a company whose ob ject it was to provide chest protectors for Polar bears, and to better the con dition of Eskimos toy teaching them that soap can be used for other things besides dessert.

IV. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
IV. Next day the market in Woola mucks experienced some thrilling hours. At ten o'clock a 2/- 'bid pro duced a thousand shares, -which were instantly absorbed. A few odd lots followed at the same figure. Then came a pause. Two-and-threepence failed to uncover more than fifty shares, hut 2/6 brought out five hun dred. Then the fun commenced. It was known that Blalceley had vanish ed, and that circumstances had satis fied the market that Woolamucks, aa speculative counters, were dead aa doornails. All sorts of rumors were flying around, hut as yet the unknown buyer's identity had not been dis closed. Shrewd dealers argued that, whoever he might be, he was not out for mere frolic. There was too much 1 steady, dogged persistence about the buying for that, and here and there they, too, began to nibble. By noon the quotation had risen to 5/3, sell ers, and every parcel was instantly snapped up. In the office at Cheapside the au thor of all the commotion sat quietly by Emma's sii'.e, with ...

A SUPERB BOUQUET. Ho was diflident and unversed in society's ways, but he was badly smitten with a reigning belle, and had nerved himself to woo and win. So he secured an introduction, and in due course went to pay his first call. He thought it would- help >liim out a bit if he tool; her some flowers, F.O he bought a superb bouquet for her. As , he reached the house, how ever, he remembered that she had a splendid conservatory, and he tried 'to think of a way out of the diffi culty. Suddenly he recollected the saying auent "ta';in!r coals to New castle," and determined to make use of it. But he was dreadfully ner vous. He broke into a cold_ sweat as he ran?; the bell, and when the divinity appeared in the reception room he didn't I.no'.v whether he stood on his head or on his heels. " I-I-thought," be stammered, . "that I would b-bring you a bou quet. b-but it's liko casting p-p pearls before swine!" To tin consternation of the clergy man the cov.atry bride, who had been reading ...
V. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
V. Since Macdanald left the mine a brief weekly cablegram had arrived at the office, reporting the progress that had been made, but indicating nothing calculated to cheer the hearts of shareholders. The latest one had been received five days preceding Macdonald's appearance in London, and he had immediately wired back to Forrest for further news. Three days after the spurt in the market there was still no reply to his mess age. He was beginning to despond, and said s- to Emma; but she had somehow developed a profound and cheerful optimism regarding the mine's future. "I'm perfectly sure, Mr. Macdon ald," she said, "that it will come all right before long. I know it will." "I ibelieved it once, too; but at that time I had only my own little wor ries to shoulder. Now " He broke off and smiled, looking at her grate fully. "But I'm not going to kick. After all, this has been a wonderful wiek to me. Instead of a whipping, I feel I owe Blakeley thanks for giv ing me cause to come over." E...

CHILDREN SOLD INTO SLAVERY 4 Did you know that the selliug of children into actual slavery still eiists" as a recognised institution in a civilised community ? The slavery referred to is ;i prae tice at Friedrichshafen, on the Lake of Constance, where there is an an nual market for children. They are sold outright by their parents to peasant farmers from Wurtemberg, Baden, and Bavaria, for a season's work cn the farms. Here are seen hoys and girls from eleven years of age to sixteen-children, for the most part, of Tyrolese woodsmen who are driven by sheer destitution to send their offspring to work for the farmers and receive the money for them. The children are gathered together under the care of a priest and taken to the market, where they are put .up at auction and inspected by pros pective purchasers like so many cat tle. . This year 125 boys and 20 girls were sold. Owing to the de mand the market was strong : a sturdy lad of sixteen, able to swing the scythe all day, brought as...
