A collego poet wrote an ode where in he declared that The mesage came to the waiting land, The winds of heaven carried tho word; And valo and mountain and lonely strand Rejoicing listened and, jubilant, heard.

At the first stroke of the gong the j 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] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 22 May 1914

KITCHEN WRINKLES. Powder the insictes of new gloves to make them easier to slip on, and also, in the case of colored kid cues, to prevent the dye from staining the hands. The cooler egys are 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 on the fingers can he 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 be used over a smoky lire, smearing a little grease over the bright part will prevent the smoke from blackening the metal. If wash- I ed after use in hot water, the pan I will be as bright as ever. I When using dripping for making a | cake, add a few drops of essence of I lemon or the juice of a lemon, and il ; will be found that this will not only remove the fatty flavor which c:«k"s so often have when made with drip ping-especially mutton - but will very greatly imp...
