SPEECHES MADE TO ORDER. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 5 June 1914

SPEECHES MADE TO ORDER.. A little, quiet, book-lined office in the heart of the West End of London is occupied by a gentleman who is prepared to turn out speeches for all occasions. During a recent interview the speechmaker-in-chief remarked that, while speeches have often been written by others than those who de liver them, he thinks his is the first attempt to concentrate the supply and to establish the new profession of gentleman speechmaker. 'I am as ready with an after-dinner speech as any other," he said. "They can be bright or serious as- required, and I have already prepared a good many speecnes which have been de livered with success in different parts of the country. 'Impromptus' are a specialty. "The method is simple enough. I ark clients to supply me with any lo cal allusions they require, and an idea, if they have one, of the trend of the speech. The rest they can leave to me. I have made a practice of attending all the functions I could for years past, so I know exactl...

Foster Choral Society. A SUCCESSFUL CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 5 June 1914

Foster Choral Society. A SUCCESSFUL CONCERT. Unsettled weather, bringing with J it intermediate showers and strong wind, were the unfortunaie condi tions under which the members of ihe Poster Choral Society had lo contend willi on Saturday night last when their first orgmised entertainment took pines. But in spite of such dis crepancies there was a satisfactory atondance of townspeople—outsiders being unable to attend under such circumstance*. The class of singing rendered su'pissed anything of its kind as far as local sing:ng organisa tions ate cmoerned, and, difficult as the vaiious quant-ties, duets and part song* were, it ri flncterl great credit upon the fingers and more so upon their able and mergetie conductor (Mr F. W. Every) who deserves to be con» gratulated for the trou' le he took and also for the manner in which the sing ing corresponded with the accompan ists—Miss Tobias and Mr. S. Davis.

"BRAINS SUPPLIED HERE." [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 5 June 1914

"BRAINS SUPPLIED HERE." Is it possible lo provide the feeble minded with more 'brain until they arc normal? Wild though the possi bility may seem to the lay mind, it hn., nevertheless, been seriously dis cussed at the Congress of Medicine In Paris. Furthermore, experiments in the science which is known as "or ganotherapy" have already been at tempted. This science really consists of treat ing diseased organs with medicines made from similar organs. It is point ed out by medical experts that the building up or doctoring of one organ with extracts from a similar one was practised 2000 years ago, although,' of course, in a very crude fashion. It is on record that patients suffering from an affe tion of any particular part of their system were given the same part of an animal to eat, with the idea of repairing the local waste and dam age. Thus consumptives were ordei* ed to eat sheep lungs, while for dys peptics was prescribed a diet in which the stomach of calves ranked as the chief it...

Welshpool. [FROM ODIl CORRESPONDENT.] After the festivities in connection witli the visit of The Governor and Lady Stanley, we have sottled down to the even tenor of our way.

THE POULTRY YARD. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 5 June 1914

THE POULTRY YARD. • The fowls love an occasional dose of charcoal. Wheat and oats in rotation make a good feed. Sprinkle dry ashes or dry earth un der the roosts frequently. Change the dust bath every two weeks; it will help keep the fowls free from lice. Sprinkling the hot ashes from the coal stoves under roosts will aid in keeping the fowls free from throat and lung troubles. There is 110 advantage in allowing the poultry to tramp around in the snow. Better keep them confinfed while the weather is bad. In putting eggs aside to keep for setting care should be taken to keep at as even a temperature as possiblb: they should bo turned regularlv every two or three days. Lime water is not only a good cor rective of bowel disease, but is also a good remedy for soft shelled eggs. Keep a supply convenient where the fowls can help themselves. One of the most important items in setting hens early is to have tho nests warm and dry. Make them tight and set them in the warmest part of the house...

ALLOWANCES. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 5 June 1914

ALLOWANCES. An excellent idea, and one that 13 steadily growing in favor, is the cus tom of allowing quite young girls a fixed sum for their small current ex penses, permitting full liberty in the expenditure, but requiring a strict ac counting in a business-like form at stated periods. No better metho-1 could possibly be devised to teach the 'true value of money and fnstil cor rect business habits-? and practical financial- ability will -not come amiss; whatever the future lot riiay be, whe ther as a wife or a. memb.er of th£ 'maiden sisterhood. Not that the mat ter of mere saving is so important, but the systematic habits formed in tliis particular will have an undoubted effect on all the other habits as well. There are a number of young ladiea in this city, belonging to wealthy families, who manage property and with marked ability. The father of one of these presented her, on her twenty-first birthday, with the deed of a house in the business part of the city, on the condition th...

A PLACE FOR HIS HEART." [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 5 June 1914

,'A PLACE FOR HIS HEART." "I married you in order to love you in God and according to the need oC my heart, and in order to havo in th'r> midst of the strange world a place for my heart, which all the world's bleak winds cannot chill, and where I may find the warmth of tho home fire, to which I eagerly betake myself when it is stormy and cold without." Can you imagine whose words are these? Perhaps you might say they were written by some lovesick senti mentalist; but you would mistako. They are found in the "Love Letters of Prince Bismarck," which have just been published, and from their am ple pages you could cull a hundred similar passages. There are many different judgments of Prince Bis marck current in the world to-day, but there cannot be two opinions as to the purity and depth of his affec tion for his wife. Probably she was the greatest single force that ever ■ entered his life. She does not seem to have been an intellectual or a brilliant woman, but she was clear-minded,...

WOMAN'S WORLD. HINTS TO MOTHERS. Some Useful Suggestions About the Care and Training of Children. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 5 June 1914

WOMAN'S WORLD. HINTS TO MOTHERS. Some Useful Suggestions About the Care and Tralnina of Children. All children possess imagination in a greater or less degree, and in the management of the nursery this facul ty may be ranked among the import ant ones. In trilling matters, where no real principle is involved I always consider the easiest way the best way, as, for instance, this morning, whfen my three-year-old girlie took it into her head not to be dressed as usual and curling her tiny pink toes be neath her gown, declaring mischiev osuly she wouldn't have any 'tock in's on at all." For a minute I was nonplussed. Baby had not ben well for several days and was just in the humor to rebel vigorously against enforced obedience. Papa was in the sound morning sleep that benefits a night worker, a cry must be avoided if pos sible, so, as a thought struck me, 1 held the snvill stocking invitingly open and said pleasantly, "The naugh ty little food said it wouldn't go into this stocking, but ...

SECRET NAVAL CODE BOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 5 June 1914

SECRET NAVAL CODE BOOK. Few tilings are so jealously guarded' as the secret code book of the Uni ted States Navy. It is a hook of sig-' nals—not the ordinary "wig-wag" sig nals used in the daily direction of the fleet by a commanding officer—but a' code of signals to be used solely in1 time of war and in the presence of an! enemy. These secret code bookB are issued! only to the executive officers of a! ship, who are enjoined to protect them against theft by every possible' means. These books are threatened' not so much by the ordinary thief as; by secret emissaries of other Govern ments who desire to obtain knowledge' of what the battleships would do in time of action. Governments have no' scruples against theft in such cases. The loss of one of these secret code' books by an officer, unless explained to the entire satisfaction of the Sec-' retary of the Navy, would mean court martial and probable expulsion from the service. To the honor of the United States Service, no officer has ...

BROODING YOUN GCHICKS. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 5 June 1914

BROODING YOUN GCHICKS. In brooding young chicks the firat thing to do is to sterilise tho brooder thoroughly to bo sure that all disease germs aro killed beforo it is heated up. Then put in a layer of old news papers at the bottom. This will make tho brooder easier to clean 'out. Over the paper put half an inch of sand, chaff or cut clover. This will help to mako tho brooder floor warmer and keep tho chicks' feet warmer; also, as the chicks' legs aro weak, they will not slip so much and get out of shapa 'as they would on paper alone. It is timo onough to heat up the brooder when tho eggs begin to liatch. The heat wants to be evenly distribut ed so that there will be no cold cor ners, as then tho ohicks may orowd one another in trying to avoid them. The tompeiaturo should be up to 90 deg. beforo tho chicks aro placed in tho broodor, and should be kept ther« tho first week, for tho little chick then has a change from 102 deg. or more in tho incubator down to 90 deg.
