DRILL HALLS-CANADIAN VERSUS AUSTRALIAN. 1 Tlic exhibition of drilling by 7,000 school-children which Sir Ian Hamil ton recently, witnessed in Melbourne, has moved him to a panygeric on the expertness, unanimity, and beauty of the childrens' movements, which can not fail to be most gratifying to their teachers. The little girls, in particular, aroused his warmest praise, and he ungrudgingly states that he has never seen anything at all approach ing the display given by Australian school children. On the question of our drill hallB, he is not bo flattering ; nnd compares unfavourably Australian halls with those of Canada. In the Dominion, the halls are built in a much more ambitious way, cost up to £15,000, ind arc made to serve the purpose of ;ocial utility as well. Our drill halls are dismal shed-, with asphalted floors which serve their purpose very well, but when not used for actual training purposes are melancholy locked cenotaphs.

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. Cook cauliflowers *"• in milk and water ; it gis'es them a better fa vour, and. they looki whiter than when cooked in water. If potatoes are watery, scrub them and-score the skin all the way round but . not deep*; then boil in salted water/ keeping oitthc skins.. The cracked skin lets out, the moisture, and the potato is dry and floury: 'Sometimes boot polish becomes quite dry with keeping. Moisten it with a little turpentine. It softens the polish, making it usable at once, and also gives a good gloss to the leather. ; . When using oil stoves, to prevent them from smoking, dissolve one tablespoonful of common salt in every pint of paratlm oil that you use. This also gives a much clearer light, and it prevents the oil vessel from rusting. Never have linen starched if you are going, to put it awny for a long time; Jt is apt to crack and even to rol.

Largest Landowner in Great Britain. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 26 March 1914

Largest Landowner in Great Britain. 0 The Duko of Sutherland, who died at Dunrobin Castle, Golspie, Suther landshire, recently, was the largest private landowner in Europe ex cept tho Czar of Jlussin. Ilia es tates cover an area of more than a million and a-half acres. In Sutherhindahirc alone he owned more than n million acres. He was born in 1851, and succeeded to the dukedom in 1802. In spite of his great social position, and his owner ship of one of the great mansions of London in Stafford House, he was very little known in society. He had no taste for ceremonial of any kind. Sport, country life, yachting, and the duties of a great landlord I'-lled up almost all his time. The late Duke was the fourth holder of the dukedom. The history of the Earls and Dukes of Suther land is bound up in the history of Scotland. They were mixed up in all the great changes of the cen turies from the thirteenth to the nineteenth. The Earls of Suther land claim descent from the Kings of Scotland. On...

"Blackbeard." [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 26 March 1914

"Blackbeard." Ail the world has heard of "Black beard," the notorious sea-robber, whose real name was Teach. Ho took his pseudonyn from the fact that he wore a very heavy Mock beard, which he was in the habit of doing: up in two large braids nnd tying them up behind his ears. He was, perhaps, one of the most brutal of all the celebrated pirates; indeed, he wished to be thought a very devil incarnate. It is told of him that one day, being mail drunk, he called to his crew, "Come, lads, let's make a hell of our own, and see how long wc can bear it." So some went down below with him, and, closing the hatches, fill ed several pots with brimstone, which they set on fire, remaining un til they were nearly suffocated, and had to cry out for air. Robert Mnvnard, a young oflicer of his Majesty's ship Pearl, set out in search of Blackboard, and on Ko vomber 21, .1717, found him at Ocracoke inlet, Xorth Carolina. l**or over three hours Maynard and his sixty men fought the pirate and his fifty ...

Decentralisation. CONTERIBUTED [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 26 March 1914

Decentralisation/ [Contiuiiuthd ] To tliosa who watch affairs in Vic toria the present outlook indicates serious trouble ahead. Not since the period of tho great land boom of twenty-fivo years ago liaa there been such n congestion of tho life of the State at tho centre. Notwithstanding all the Government has been attempt ing to do for tho country districts the people are steadily leaving rural for city industries. The extensive irriga tion schemes which were to do so much arc not all thoy have been cracked up to be, and the money laid out on thein is not now worth twenty shillings in tho pound. All this aooms quite natural when one reflects on the manner in wlibh the whole State is run by and for the boactit of tho people of Melbourne Half of the population of the State is grouped rouud the meeting place of Parliament, and personal influimce is still an important factor in our poli tical life.

A Column of Comments. [By R. E.

A'ow at first 8iVlit this statement seems ungallant-, inasmuch as it leads one to infer that tho fair sex of tho early days were so ijiieer looking that tlioy frightened Juek Ringtail away, but tho real truth is that Jack was more numerous than ! cvor after the ladies arrived, becauso in place of seeking him in tho forest tho men then started to set their snares in the kitchens and were snared instead "Until death do us part." i One often hears tho expression "tho dignity of labor," and considering that nowadays no male or female workers like to ho referred to as servants it shows that they^aro getting 'more dignified ...
