KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 13 March 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. When cleaning knives damp them (before rubbing on the boards; tills will produce a better polish and they will clean much quicker. To impart a delicate odor to linen, saturate a piece or cotton or blotting paper 'With oil ot lavender and place it among the various articles. A little bag of sulphur suspended in a bird-cage is not only healthy for the Dird, but keeps away the parasites with which some birds are infested. If wood worms are in old furniture rub constantly with turpentine. Tho polish made of turpentine and bees wax is to be preferred to any other for this cure. When boiling a haddock fasten the head to the tail, add only suflicient water to cover, and boil slowly till "cooked. Haddock is hard and indi gestible if boiled fast. Old nail holes in wood may be filled up by mixing sawdust with glue till it is the consistency of stiff paste. Pess this compound into the holes, and it will ibecomc as hard as the wood it self.

THE NEW ZEALANDER. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 13 March 1914
THE NEW ZEALANDEU. Tlip Now Zealander is a puritan of the original stock. and ho possesses most of the virtues of puritauism and all its self-complacency. lie doesn't denounce ihe Arts, but secretly he doplorcs them: though he doesn't ob ject to an Art Gallery, for tliat is somehow a thing every up-to-date city is expected to have, along with a sew age svn.i'iii and a detractor. The New Zealander is strictly moral ac cording to the 7:10 Commandments Is sued by ihe Chamber of Commerce, ] and lie also remembers a few of those he learned at Sunday-school. Ho is j pre-eminently n business man. and i never puts his damaged goods iu the window. When he feels that his vir tue is burgeoning beyond his capac ity to retain it he goes to Sydney for a fortnight; then he cotnes back and tells his friends how thoroughly shocked he was at the goings-on over I here—though probably his greatest adventure has been an indefinito ap pointment with a peioxided barmaid who lias a husband and three childr...
THE GRAND OLD DAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 13 March 1914
THE GRAND" OLD DAYS. Mr. Sainsburv, Chief Commissioner ot Police in Victoria, says that tho old pushes like Uie Flying Angels, the CruLchies, the Emus and the White Hoses, have now quite disappeared. The good ole days are gorn, And «s as played the game is left for lorn. There was a time when Crutchies and White Itoses I Would bash each other's jaws an* .break their noses; I When shickered blokes that staggered 'ome at night Would meet us, an' be Toft for dead all right; When bobbies who annoyed us on the .beat Would be 'arf-kicked to rags in every street. Their 'elmets broken an' their trous ers torn, llut them ole days are gorn. The grand ole days are gorn, And modern blokes is only things" of scorn.

"MAN WANTS BUT LITTLE HERE BELOW." [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 13 March 1914
".MAN WANTS BUT LITTLE HERE BELOW." Man wants but little—that Is true. A llttlo heiress brido will do; A little house—or maybe two— In church a Httlo cushioned pew. A little cottage at the shore— Newport would do—I'd not ask more. A little mountain shooting lodge, ■V little hca'lth to doctors dodge, A little ocean trip each year To Europe or to some place near; A little yacht to places reach In wintei-time—like, Bay, Palm Beach. A little box to opera hear, A lot of littlejewels clear; A little racing car, I ween. And Just one tiny limousine. Ob, yes, indeed! Quito well I know "Jlan wants but little here below." —"Judge, New York. Cameos from the courts.—Said a prisoner at Tottenham: "It's the first time I've been here." "Well, pay 5s. entrance fee," replied the magistrate. I —"Globe."
CEDAR OF LEBANON IN ENGLAND [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 13 March 1914
ceu.u: of ucuaxon in i-:sglaxi> Cedars of Lebanon, reported to be rapidly disappearing from their native range (says •'TheWestminster Gazette'*) were introduced into England during the first half of the seventeenth cen tury. They h:ive flourished admirably with us. though the Kew authorities do not agree with King Solomon about the value of the timber, ■which may possibly have suffered in quality from the change of climate. Some of our finest specimens are alleged to com pare favorably for dimensions with the Inmost of the 100 patriarchs that still iingcr on the s-lepes of_ Lebanon. Of ti«to years, either cedars of Lebanon or the closely allied Atlas cedars have almost invariably been planted instead of the traditional oaks to commcmorato lioyal visits, being of more rapid growth and equally majestic- propor tions.

It will be remembered that the Frince won many laurels during the recent war. when ho persisted in sharing the hardships of his soldiers, and nearly lost his life before the walls of Scutari. The ten months spent in the marshy region of (he Hirer Boyann, when Prince and soldiers were constantly in territory where the mud came up to their knees, has. however, told on the health of the Prince, who has been or dered to the Kiviera by his medical ad viser.

The Archdeacon. I. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 13 March 1914
The Archdeacon. -No acquaintance called Mm by any other name than the . Archdeacon; but dimly it was remembered by his Iriends that he had been baptised "George." A fat and kindly man he was, who oozed benevolence from every human pore, had a voice which should have come up from 4he depths of tile sea, and a hand which touched all things with gentleness. The friendship between Hugh Don ald and the Archdeacon was of old standing. Hugh remembered the aml a'b!e cleric at Aberfeldy almost as long as he could remember anything at all. The truth was that the Very llev. George Hedges fished both for the souls of men and the bodies of salmon, and was almost equally suc cessful at either vocation. To him, Hugh Donald was as his own son— and in this light he thought of him as he sat upon the bridge deck of the yacht Christabel that sunny after noon and listened to the golfers' 'bab ble. A woman! The Archdeacon prick ed tip his ears at such talk. 'lias he known her long? Did you say he met her...

FREAK TROUSERS AMERICAN IDEA RIDICULED. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 13 March 1914
FREAK TROUSERS AMERICAN J DBA RIDICULED. Sonic of us (says "The Daily Tele graph" of January 7) remember Mr Walter Passmore's exultant oxelama I lion in "The Eurl anil the Girl"—"It ain't the coat wot makes the man; why, demme, it'.s the troupers." So, evi dently, think certain sartorial experts in America, when they surest, as we are told, that fashion is about to pre scribe to the "nuts" on the other side, nether garments that shall be "slashed" or "slit," just as women's skirts are, according to the prevailing vogue. Of course, the prospect of "slashed" trou sers opens up—as it were—endless pos sibilities. even to the -average male mind. We seem to see visions of open work socks vastly more elaborately embroidered than they arc now in Dudeland. Also do there seem to loom up enchanting dreams of fairy foot wear, bejewelled shoe-strings, and dainty garters—with, perhaps, a bit of airy frilling* thrown iti. For, ouco you open the floodgates of fashion at the trousers seams from the ...

That the storm should have come from Africa is in ac cordance Willi precedent. The desert, we have been told. Is the home o£ ".lie heresy.
