GOOD NEWS FOR HUSBANDS. FAMILY DRESS BILLS REDUCED BY HALF. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 11 June 1914
GOOD NEWS FOR HUSBANDS. FAMILY DllESS BILLS REDUCED BY HALF. There is hope yet for the harassed husband who stands appalled at the size of his tyife's millinery bills and the other everyday. bills run up in the household. • It is. not what we eat that costs, it is what you wear, laments the average husband, but in all this dia tribe against the high cost of living, a glimmer of hope is appearing in the darkness for the American husband, and then, prob ably, for the Britisher, too". The wear ing of hats, boots, and stockings made of aluminium is to be made compulsory "by Congress. ; j Man, the head of the family, is to be released from some of the bills that come in every month to sadden his life. , Somco::e has discovered that theso me tal hats can be. made for a minimum' price. The great value of this metal when used for feminine garments is that it never wears out. This may seem a. disadvantage to the. woman who chan ges her gowns ten times, a day and her hats every time she chang...

WALKED OUT WITH IT. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 11 June 1914
WALKED OUT WITH IT. There came into the office of a law yet- a mail who was excited because his wife had left him, and he feared she would run him into debt all over the country. "In that case," said the lawyer, "you had better post her." His client, not knowing what post ing meant, said 'he did not know where-she had gone, and besides, she w.s's fully as strong as he* and he did not believe he was able to post her. The'lawyer explained that he meant putting a notice m the newspapers saying: .-"Whereas my wife Helen has left my bed and board without any just " "But that'ain't true," interrupted the client. "She didn't leave my bed. She took it with her."
THE MANAGEMENT OF YOUNG PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 11 June 1914
THE MANAGEMENT OF YOUNG PIGS. Our views as to what weight a pig should reach vary enormously. A friend of _ l'ay : own, once a well-known Berk-; shire breeder, made his pigs "into ba conovs in about thirty weeks or into porkc-rs in. sixteen weeks, but I do not thi'nk' tJiat in tiiese laterdays he would be satisfied with the results, for 7} months is a long period to feed a youngster for pnme meat, whereas ii thb meat were too heavy the reduced price would remove all the incentive. -A -porker pig should pay very well in sixteen weeks and not be too fat, as just as in the case of the baooner tii lets down the price. Another once famous breeder friend fed his pigs until his hams scaled 201b each, but these were only seven months old, yet they afford an excellent idea as to the gross weight of the caroase. The curer of bacon requires not only lean meat, but small meat, hence the weight of a bacon pig should not ex ceed 140 to 160 lb., and it is precisely such meat which obtains the best...

CO-OPERATIVE CHARITY. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 11 June 1914
CO-OPERATIVE CHARITY. It is not often that charitable insti tutions are able to pay their own way and have profits to expend upon the beneficiaries. There is such an insti tution in Italy called the Laboratorio della Consolata. This was started by some charitable ladies to rescue work ing girls from the temptations of fac tory life and to save them from being •weated. Apprentices are paid enough to live on, and women workers make as much money as, if not more than, if they were employed by ordinary dress making establishments, says the 'World's Work.' During the dead seasons when girls employed in other dressmaking places are discharged the Consolata girls are still employed. Work is done at lower prices, ladies bring odd pieces of mater ial to be made up, and everything is done to "keep things going." Thus, while every other dressmaker is out of work in February and August, the Con solata gids are provided for. Also, the working day is one hour shorter than that of other workrooms,...

HANDLING CANADA'S WHEAT . DROP. Conditions (says "The Sydney Stock and Station Journal") hare never been so good for handling the Canadian grain crop at the head of the Lakes. By tlia close of navigation there will be no less than 40,000,000 bushels stor age capacity at Fort Williams and Port Arthur, which is 12,000,000 bush els more than last year. The new Governmentr-owned elevator is now completed, and the machinery will be ready to handle its share of the com ing season's crop. It has_ a capacity of three-quarters of a million bushels in the workhouse and two and a half millions in the storage bins. In fact, there is room for elevator space of some 30,000,000 bushels. In addition to the Government elevator, the Can adian Pacific Railway, Grand Trunk Pacific, and Canadian Northern, to gether with the Fort William Eleator Company, and other concerns, are erecting new buildings, so that the total increase in storage facilities this year will be about 12,000,000 bushels.
THE ORCHARD. HOW TO SAVE TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 11 June 1914
THE ORCHARD. HOW TO SAVE TREES. ' In every apple orchard of mature trees are- individual trees which are in imminent danger of splitting apart owing to a mechanically weak forma tion-at union of trunk and body limbs. Many such trees have been mined and others are finding their way : > the woodpile. By a proper system of trussing between opposing body m-Iis this danger is entirely obviated and the tree made stronger than ether's not trussed though normally formed. A seam, if not already a fissure, ex tending downward from top of trunk, indicates tlie weak tree which if at tended to promptly will be saved irom •disaster and an untimely end. Again^ many trees contain bird holes or openings mto body limbs or trunk as a result either of careless or ignor ant- pruning, failure to treat the larger wounds with paint, or from mechani cal injuries as by storms or by waggon or implement. All such openings are a meiiafce to the tree and endanger its usefulness and longevity. Here is where a ...
ABOUT THAT BOY. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 11 June 1914
ABOUT THAT BOY. (By Arthur D. Dean.) What do I expect of tile boy of four teen? Right at the start I expeot him to be a boy, not a cherub, not a plain unadulterated boy. I expect that little old man, nor a sneak. Just he stands' well on his feet, looks you in the eye and tells you the truth; that he- sleeps when he sleeps, works when he works and 'plays when he plays; that he swims like a duck, runs like a deer and'sees like an eagle; that he plays fair on the field, at the schooi and in the home; that he likes a dog, delights in woods and fields, and be lieves in comrades; that he admires real meiij stands by his heroes and looks up* to his mother; that he sees in a violet, a sparrow or a worm, the touch of the hand of God. Furthermore, I expect that the boy has a father as well as a mother, a few brothers and sisters and a wise teacher or two; that his father remembers that he was once a boy • that his mother tempers her all-abiding love with jus tice ; that his home is more than ...
TIT-BITS FROM BOOKS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 18 June 1914
* TIT-BITS FROM BOOKS. "Every man who is a genius knows 'it. But some know it-wlio are. not geniuses." ■ \ "It is 'easy to hat a man for his faults than .to love him for his virtues. But it is easier to hate liim for his virtues and love him for his faults." "The spice of love is the gentle row ! It is only the bread-pudding woman, flavorless and unappetising, who says, 'Yes, dear,' to everything." "There are some questions that a wo man who considers her own happiness' will leave, unasked, however great ■ her curiosity." "Have you ever nofcioed that the things' you are most severe on at one period of your existence you come to do at another ? It's fatal to say you won't do anything; if it's only that you will never marry a man with a beard, or a squint, j-pu're bound even tually to do it. .While if you sit in righteous judgment on the man who spends his substance on the Turf, or the woman who runs away with her neigh bour's husband, you'll do both as sure ias you're a living soul."...
HE DIDN'T EAT IT! [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 18 June 1914
HE DIDN'T EAT IT! I A mail lay groaning aiul writhing by the wayside, when up dashed a con stable and proceeded to investigate; but all he could get out of the sufferer was, "l ate one too—I ate one too," and he puzzled, but not for long. "Poison!" was his diagnosis, and, mindful of his training, he at once, pro cured an emetic, which simply electri fied the recipient./ Between convulsions he managed to | ask the reason for such treatment, and on his being told, and asked what it was he'had eaten, he became more abu sive. "What did! eat?" yelled lie; "Why, you idiot! '1812' is the number of the qar that knocked me down!"
MEAT VERSUS VEGETABLES FOR FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 18 June 1914
MEAT VERSUS VEGETABLES FOR FOWLS. Six generations of lions were fed ex clusively on raw liesh by Mr. F. Houssay, by way of experiment, wliicil lasted seven years. At first the ac tion of the meat seemed favorable, and at the end of two years, says "Cos mos," the increase in the size of the birds and improvement of their laying and plumage would have led to the con clusion that this diet was benefioial. As time went on, however, tliere were signs of poisoning and organic fatigue; deforming arthritis appeared, only cured by a return to vegetables. All the organs were greatly modified, and lierediiy of these changes was beyond doubt, as they were found on chicks before they were old enough to be af fected 'by growth. - Mr. Houssay also noted that the liesh diet was particularly injurious "to t!ie germs and 'consequently to the breed. In fact, the percentage of fer tile eggs fell-from 100 to 6.85 during the exp. viment. Tlie vitality of the chickens likewise decreased continually, and t...

WEDDED IN A WHITE SMOKING JACKET. Among the host of New York's :g brides the palm for originality is unani mously accorded to Miss Katherine Burriit, who was recently married to Mr. Harold EL Deeming. The couple were married in the studio of the bride's parents, and the keynote of he ceremony was unconventionality. The bridegroom wore a smobing-jaoket of white vicuna, finished with white -a tin. ami his trousers were adorned with broad stripes of white silk at the sides. The bride wore a long-trained, sleeve ess mediaeval gown of white satin cliar meusc, elaboratey trimmed with ropes of pearls, and a cap similarly ornam ented. She' had no orange blossom or bouquet-. Her robe concealed her figure when she stood, but revealed it at every movement, and was declared by the 500 fashionable guests to be superbly beau tiful. The studio was illuminated with thou sands of candles instead of electric lights, and the walls were draped with Oriental hangings. The conventional orchestra, playing...
ALL CLOCKS TO KEEP TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 18 June 1914
ALL CLOCKS TO KEEP TIME. Every day- at noon Greenwich time is telegraphed to the post-offices of the chief towns iii the.kingdom, but in ac cordance with a reform that is now con templated by the Post Office, for the outlay of £2 a year, business houses public institutions, and other large or ganisations can have all their clocks set at Greenwich time every hour. Master clocks will be put up at all distributing centres, and these will transmit hourly impulses to the pre mises of persons requiring the service. The cost of synchronizing clocks in this way will depend, to a great ex tent, on the number of subscribers in each district. The rates chargeable within a radius of' two miles of the district centre are £6 a year when there is only one subscriber on the circuit, £3 a year when there are two subscrib ers, and £2 a year where there are three or more subscribers. Already the post-offices are receiving numerous ap plications from the public for signals for the purpose of synchroniz...

EL DORADO. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 18 June 1914
& EL DORADO. There is a' land of pure deliglit, re mote from vulgar storms, where people stay up day and night, inventing new reforms. The natives have no feet cr hands, they all have run to jaws; be causo their blessed isle demands no other thing than laws. They-nothing do but legislate and frame new laws each day^ and no one has to pay the freight; there is no freight to pay. There talksraiths aye are in the van, and lawyers are in swarms, and he is held the greatest man who springs the most- reforms. There no one plows and no one saws or wields the toilers' traps, because they all are making laws to govern t'other chaps. No smoke from factory or mill is seen upon the breeze; reformers come along and kill such industries as those. Jf any fellow strains and racks his form to gain a roll, they hit him with an income tax, and put him in the hole. "You have," they say, "no earthly right to money you have earned, and to the lawyers, foolish wight, it all must be returned.; for ...
