EMPIRE DAY. TOOR.V. "North and East of Leuwin lights, Deep in the morning glow, And southward by the island heights Where Derwent waters flow ; Across the stormy thousand miles To New Zealand's pealcs of snow ; The Homeland calls them to their shrine— Folk we may not forget ; So pledge them deep in the red South wine And chant the canzonet— Our own folk, our own folic, Blooded of whites, though tanned ; Our own folk, our own folk, Folk of our own Southland." The above words of Emerson are appropriate at this particular tiuie of the year, when we, in Australia, take occasion to celebrate the birthday of the late Queon Victoria, in whose honot the Dritish nation founded Em pire Day.

THE VALUE OF MONEY. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 5 June 1914
THE VALUE OF MONEY. Someone lias said, "Money does not make the man; but things are apt to he much more comfortable when the man makes money." We read of misers who love money just for the pleasure it gives them to hoard it, to handle it, and to count it over; but such cases are rare. Money is chiefly valued for what it can bring, and it seems foolish for a person to claim to care nothing for it. True, money alone cannot buy health, education, friends, t nd happi ness; but if rightly valued and used, it can help to give us all of these. Of course,, the environment, character, and habits of a person slmpe his views on all subjects. If one has seriously felt the need of money, and is obliged to work hard to obtain it, he will be much more likely to know its true value than the person to whom it has come without any effort of his own. It is said that women as a class do not know the value of money, and are prone to spend it foolishly. As Ear as my acquaintance goes, this is not true. C...

WEANING THE FOAL. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 5 June 1914
WEANING THE FOAL. The hardest thing to overcome in weaning foals is the actual loss of tho companionship of the mother; which causes the colt to worry arid fret. Horses are nervous animals, anil the colt, being deprived of his "best friend," often spends niuch time in running up and down his paddock or stall, neighing, pawing and whimp ering in a rain effort to find an es cape which may lead at least to com pany of his kind, if not of his mother: To take tl".2 place of his dam, the best passible substitute is another colt. Where a colt of the same age is not available, the use of a yearling ing arrangements are such that the yearling gets his share of the feed given. For the best results, it is ne cessary to keep the foal which is be ing weaned out of sight and hearing of the dam, as every time they see or hear each other only serves to pro long the period of fretting by reviving their memories. The main point in the weaning, all things considered, is feeding the colt. On no account...

TRICKING THE PORTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 5 June 1914
TRICKING THE PORTERS. As illustrating the unfounded com plaints whicli are sometimes made against railway servants, Sir. V/. I&lt;\ Jackson, tne general manager of the North British Railway Company, has been telling a good story, the facts of which, he said, were ascertained in the investigation of a complaint made by the principal actor. An old lady turned up at one of the Glasgow stations, and going up to a porter said: "I say, porter, can you tell me where I will get my train?" "Where are you going, madam?" lie asked. "What have you got to do with that? Can you tell me where I will get my train?" "But I cannot tell without " "Well, I'm not going to tell you where I'm going. I'll get someone else to help me." With that the old lady toddled far ther up the platform, and meeting an other porter propounded lier conun drum to lilm. "Where are you going, madam?" was his natural question. "Oh," she retorted, "you are just as Impertinent as your mate. I'm not go ing to tell you w...
A COMEDY O FERRORS. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 5 June 1914
A COMEDY 0 FERRQRS. , | A remarkable story comes from Sey mour Gardens, Ilford. A gentleman and his wife occupying a villa decided to leave home for two or three days, and asked a neighbour to "keep or eye" on tho place. The vigilanl neighbour, acting upon his instruc tions, the same night observed a lighi in a bedroom of tne presumably unoc cupied house, and saw the light extin guished. Accompanied by a police man, the neighbour made a forcible entrance through the scullery window, and quietly the two men made theii way to the bedroom. The light o) the constable's bull's-eye disclosed th» head of a' man. in bed, and the con stable promptly drew his truncheon. As promptly the occupant of the be&lt;? sprang out and a desperate struggle began. Simultaneously a lady dashed across the room shrieking, threw, open the window, olambered out, and in net night attire began at considerable peril to work her way around the bay.. A second oonstable, passing at the mo ment, hastily concl...
THE HOUSEHOLD. THE USE OF THE RAISIN. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 5 June 1914
the household. THE USE OF THE RAISIN. The dried fruits, such as raisins, dates, figs, currants, etc., are not only delicious to the taste, but are also among- the most nutritive of foods, in the past these fruits have been too little known outside of rich fruit cakes and mincemeat; consequently their whoiesomeness has not been adequately appreciated. They may be used to advantage in many other ways. . Fruit Bread.—Fruit bread is becom ing very popular. When making bread, reserve a part of the dough, to which add some well-washed currants or seeded raisins, a little sugar and butler, and raise and bake the same as the plain bread. Currant Loaf.—Take two cupfuls of bread dough, one egg, half a cupful of sugar, half a teaspoonful of salt, two lablespoonfuls of butter, one tea spoonful of flavoring or spice, one rounded teaspoonful of baking-powder and one cupful of well-flour currants. Beat the other ingredients together, until you can see no streaks of dough, before adding the lruit; ...

A Witty Woman. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 5 June 1914
A Witty Woman. Some stories told about Mrs. Wel don, the celebrated "Modern Portia," who recently passed away, indicate' what a clever womau Glib was. She once set the court laughing ow ing to her replies to counsel. "You are Mrs. tieorgiaua Weldon?" she was asked. "No, I am not!" came the prompt reply. "But surely you are the wife of Mr. Weldon?" "Yes, I am." Finally she enlightened the barris ter, who had come near to losing his temper, that her name was Georgina, not Georgiana. "Why couldn't you have said thaL at first?" he thundered. "Because, she answered, in her sweetest accents, "you never asked me!" On another occasion, in the Court of Appeal, she urged as one of the grounds of her complaint that the judge who had given the decision against her was too old to understand the case. The chief judge reminded her- that the last time she was there she complained that her case had been tried by a "bit of a boy" who could not do her justice. "What age do you want a judge to be?" he ...
