The Difference. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 23 May 1914
The Difference. "If you wish to distinguish between the death of a barber and the death of a sculptor, how would you do it?" asked Jack Merriless. "I don't know. Perhaps you will en lighten me," said his pal, Bob Syrm slick. "Well, to put it. concisely. I should sum it up like this. The barber curls up and dyes, while the sculptor makes faces and busts." A lively Irishman was once invited to a large dinner party in Dublin in the hope that he would amuse and di vert his host's guests. But from the beginning to the end of the dinner he preserved a solemn and serious face. The host thought this very strange. "Why, old fellow," he remarked, "I don't believe the biggest fool in Ire land could make you laugh to-night." "Try," was the wit's cutting rejoin der.
At the Fire Station. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 23 May 1914
At the Fire Station. He was undeniably from far beyond the suburbs, and as lie was walking along a City street he stopped in front of the fire-engine house and looked in. "Havo many fires in town?" lie asked. "Yes, we have them pretty often," replied the fireman. "Ever try to see liow quick you can liitch-up?" "Oh, yes." At that moment an alarm came in. At the first stroke of the gong the men rushed to their posts, the doors of the stalls opened, and within a few seconds men, horses, and engine were speeding down the street. The young man watched the pro ceedings with admiration. "Well!" he exclaimed, when speech returned. "There ain't many places where they'd go to all that trouble to show a stranger what they can do."
KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 23 May 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. Powder the itisides of new gloves to make them easier to slip on, and also, in the case of colored kid cnes, to prevent the dye from staining the hands. The cooler eggs nre the quicker they will froth when whipped, so they should be beaten in a cool place. A pinch of salt always cools and fresh ens them. Vegetable and fruit stains 011 the fingers can lie removed by dipping the fingers in very strong tea for a few minutes and then washing them in clear, warm water. If bright saucepans and kettles have to bo used over a smoky fire, smearing a little grease over the bright part will prevent the smoke from blackening the metal. If wash ed after use in hot water, the pan .will bo as bright as. ever. When using dripping for making a cake, add a few drops of essence of lemon or the juice of a lemon, and it will be found that this will not only remove the fatty flavor which cakes so often have when made with drip ping—especially mutton — but will very greatly improve the f...
GREENBACKS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 23 May 1914
GREENBACKS. Few people, perhaps, are aware why the national American currency is printed with groen backs. Ever since the adoption of paper currency it has been the constant study oC bank-note engravers to got up some plan of printing bills that could not be coun terfeited. In this they only partly succeeded till as late as 1857, when a man named Stacy J. Edson invented a kind of green ink, which he patent ed June 30 of that year. It is called anti-photographic ink, because it can not be photographed and cannot be dislodged with alkalies by counterfei ters to get :i complete facsimile of the bills. As it is a secret known only to the American Bank Note Com pany and the inventor, it is impossible to counterfeit the greenback money. Even if the composition of the ink whs known, it would be of no use, as the work could not be copied from the genuine bills with any other kind of ink.
A Terrible Fix. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 23 May 1914
A Terrible Fix. With a smile on his rubicund fea tures, the hotel manager was peace fully enjoying forty -winks. Business was booming; the place was full. Good! Knocks on the door of his sanctum, however, ibrought him back to earth. In staggered a perspiring waiter. "P-p-p-please, sir," he stammered, "I'm in a terrible fix. A gent has jUBt ordered roast mutton, and he's already had one portion as venison."
A HUGE PROFIT. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 23 May 1914
A HUGE PROFIT. Sir James Yoxall tells, in his new book about collecting, another story of a collector's handsome profit— "A bookseller purchased for £200 the MS. of one of Dickens' best works. For a long time that interesting manu script had lain neglected. I am told that it had been left on the mantel piece of an empty house formerly in habited by a person connected with Charles Dickens in business. The bookseller tried to sell it for £500, and failed; £400, and failed; £300, and failed. "A few years later, having to meet a sudden demand for cash, he parted with the MS. for the sum he gave for it, £200. The purchaser at that price kept the MS. for some years, un til one morning a bookseller, the agent of a now famous but at that time unknown collector of rarities, came to the owner of the MS. and of fered to buy it. *"My price is £2000,' said the owner. A cheque was written on the spot."
BUSINESS-LIKE WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 23 May 1914
ci —J BUSINESS-LIKE WOMAN. (A claim is put forward in one of the dailies that girls are more alert in money matters than men.) Nona is what you call a bachelor girl. She has a little money, and enough self-confidence to float a bat tleship—or any other little trick that self-confidence comes in useful for. The other day I called on Nona with a pair of gloves she said she had "won over some trivial dispute o£ ours. She was reading a paper with every appearance of satisfaction. "Hello!" she said, from the sofa, "you don't mean to say you've remem bered the gloves at last?" She put uown the paper thoughtfully. "It's quite true," she added. "Yes," I said, "quite true. I stayed awake all night remembering the beastly things." "No," said Nona, "I wasn't referring to that." I bade her sit up and explain her self. "Well, you see," she said, "you men always say we're no use in money matters. And I'm glad to see it pub licly contradicted at last. Now take these gloves. How much did you pay fo...
CYCLING. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 23 May 1914
CYCLING. According to recently cabled in formation from Rhodesia, Sonth Africa, Captain R. N. Ivelsey, who has for the past nine months been endeavouring to motor through from Cape Town to Cairo, has met with serious injuries through being mauled by a leopard, and is now laid up in a hospital near Seranje. This uewa will come as a surprise to those who have been closely fol lowing the progress made by this pioneering motoring party, across Africa, for the last ^dvi'ces to hand from Johannesburg 'reported that the leader of the party hud written frienda stating that the expedition had become stranded north of Liv ingstone, near Lake NyaBsa, through want of funds.

Bmonysi toe mines. At the south drive in the 1000 feet level at the New Jubilee 2 feet of payable stone his been encoun tered. A fair Btream of water is coming away, which is regarded as an indication of a good body of ore ahead. The yield for the month, 116oz 7dwt of gold from 450 tons of ore shows an improvement. The position at the William's Fancy shows no change. The vari ous rises at the No. 7 level are pro viding good supplies of milling ma terial. It ia oilicially stated there is no alteration in the mine to acconnt for the recent collapse in value.

THE END OF HIS TETHER [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 23 May 1914
THE END OF HIS TETHER By IAN GROSVENOR. A Failure! The reflection was far from being ,a pleasant one to Roderick Massing ham. As a matter of fact, it came near to irritating him into a complete loss of temper, as, lounging in the seat of a deck chair, he watched the blue outlines of Table Mountain fade away on the horizon. "Two years wasted," he muttered viciously out from between his teeth. "Two years all but a month. It's the first time in my life I've been so com pletely up against a rock." "Frankly, I had expected better luck at your hands. When I told you the nature of the task confronting you I had excellent hopes of your success. You have helped the Yard on so many occasions and so brilliantly, that I believed you would have won through when so much depended on it." Massingham flung his cigarette im patiently over the side of the liner. Unconsciously, he had uttered his thoughts aloud. As a result, he had been more than a little surprised on hearing the quietly spoken reply f...

RAILWAY AND TRAMWAY MEN SHOULD USE MR. CHARLES ROCK, of 42 Gladen Street, East Brunswick, 33 years in the Melbourne Tramway and O.B. Company, writes, on 2/4/12 :— CLEMENTS TONIC LTD. "In December, 1911, I was laid up with pleurisy, so serious the doctor consulted another. For three days MY TEMPERA TURE WAS 104 DEGREES. MY LIFE WAS DESPAIRED OF, bnt through taking the doctor's advice I live to-day. He advised my wife to get CLEMENTS TONIC for me, as 'there was life in that medi cine.' When he said, 'life in Clements Tonic,' they were the TRUEST WORDS HE EVER UTTERED. I would have been in my last resting place only for that grand medicine. Had my wife paid £40 for the bottle she would have had good value. I have seen a lot of testimonials about CLEMENTS TONIC in books and papers, but what I find fault with is that every writer has utterly failed to give -a proper value of that medicine.
