DISTRICT NEWS. Boree. CHURCH OF ENGLAND MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
DISTRICT NEWS. Boree. CHURCH OF ENGLAND MEETING. The members of the Church of England residing at Boree Creek held a meeting at the Union Church last Wednesday evening, to discuss matters re the building of a church at the Boree Creek township. The Vicar, on taking the chair, explained to those present the nature of the meeting and informed them that a very nice block of land had been given to the Church and that he held in the bank some £14 odd which was the result of an entertain ment held at the township a month or two ago. Tlie Chairman thought there should be no difficulty in start ing to build, as there were over fifty Church of England families living in and around that district who could attend the Church services and help in different ways. Although no sub scriptions for the building have been asked for yet, he felt snre many would give liberally as a thank offer ing to God for another good har vest. Mr Lattin was appoined secretary and the following ladies as collec tors :...

The Wheat Market. SYDNEY, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
The Wheat Market. Sydney, Monday. Several sales oE New South Wales wheat took place early in the morn ing at 3/61 (Sydney), on milling ac count, followed by sales at 3/6, Syd ney. The market is very depressed, and both shippers and millers arc shy buyers in view oE the growing impression that the world's granaries are now better filled with wheat than has been the case for several years. A small minority of'N.S.W. fanners have abandoned the holding ' policy and are freely offering up to half of their new harvest to shippers and millers in Sydney.
SOUNDED BEST WHEN SILENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
SOUNDED BEST WHEN SILENT. In a railroad office in 'West Philadel phia there is an old and trusted clerk of Celtic extraction, who keeps his as sociates in a constant state of good hu mour by an unending series of witti cisms, interspersed occasionally with 'bulls so glaring that even he him self has to join in the laugh that in variably follows such a 'break' on his part. There was some trouble on the tele phone one day recently^ r.nd Mike, as he ? is called among his friends, lost much of his usual good nature in his efforts to get Abe gist of a message that wa3 being sent from another office. The man on the other end of the wire fin ally became exasperated, and asked Mike if he was losing his hearing. 'I can hear you all right until you begin to talk,' said Mike, 'and then I can't understand a word you say.' — 'Philadelphia Times.'
JOYS OF WOMANHOOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
JOYS OF WOMANHOOD. 'You women,' exclaimed the dis gusted brother, 'simply have a glor ious time doing nothing ! My word, I envy you your idleness!' 'Idleness ?' shrieked his pretty sis ter. 'Yes, idleness! Oh, why — why — wasn't I born a woman?' 'Oh, yes; you'd like to be a wo man!' retorted his pretty sister. 'Just try it for a day! Fasten a blanket and counterpane around your legs, buckle a strap around your waist so tight you can't draw a full breath or eat a hearty meal, have your hair all loose and fluffy so that it keeps tick ling your ears and getting into your eyes, wear high-heeled shoes and gloves a size too small for you, cover your face with a veil full of spots that make you squint, fix a huge hat on with pins, so that every time the wind blows it pulis your hair out by the roots, and then without any pockets and with short sleeves and openwork stockings go for a walk on a winter's day and enjoy yourself. Oh, ves, my word, you would like it.' — Chicago 'Journal.'
THE FLORAL TREATMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
THE FLORAL TREATMENT. She was unquestionably a stout wo man. She occupied more than one per son's share of space in the street car, and quite overshadowed her trim com panion. 'You really ought to try eoraething,' said her-friend, in reply to an aside from the stout lady her self regarding her weight. 'A woman I know reduced herself twenty pounds in a very few months by taking a treat ment. I can find out what it was, if you like.' 'You're very kind,' said the stout lady, 'but I've quite given up trying to get thin. Oh, I know' — she went on as the other interrupted — 'but you cannot induce me to take up any new fads. The last one I tried settled that. They made me imagine that I was a beautiful lily swaying in the summer breeze from side to side ! I decided that was ridiculous for a woman of my weight, and so ? ' 'Perhaps you didn't give it a fait trial,' suggested her friend. 'Perhaps not, but my husband came in just when I was being a lily, and he 'Men never understand, do they?'...

CHOOSING THERMOMETERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
CHOOSING THERMOMETERS. A photographer's experiences of tank development are given in the 'Bulletin of Photography.' He tells how his negatives came out much too thin, despite all his care. He finally found out that his ther mometer registered about ten de grees higher than it should do. Cheap thermometers are no more likely to be accurate than cheap measures or cheap weights. Many of fchem are graduated only in the roughest fashion for bath purposes, and are certainly not to be relied on for timing development. There is an old dodge in buying a cheap ther mometer, which we may repeat for the benefit of those to whom it may be fresh, says 'Photography.' It is, always look at the whole stock of instruments before selecting one. They are sure to be found to differ considerably amongst themselves as to what the temperature is, and if one is picked which gives as nearly as possible a reading which is the mean of all the lot, the chances are it is somewhere about the mark. But it is much ...
PREMATURE REPENTANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
PREMATURE REPENTANCE. The sick man seized his wife's hand in his feeble grasp. 'Please tell me the whole, awful truth at once,' 'he begged, gaspingly. 'Oh, William!' cried his wife, 'it's past all right at last. The crisis is over and the doctor assures us that you will recover.' 'Is he perfectly sure of that, my dear?' 'Perfectly.' 'Well, then, darling, please do this for me at oncc. Run and telephone to my partner that I didn't mean what I said yesterday about not foreclosing that mortgage. He'll understand that I must have been out of my head.' — Cleveland 'Leader.'
HAMLET TO DATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
HAMLET TO DATE. To beef, or not to beef? That is the question. Whether 'tis nobler in the human corporation to suffer the stings and gnawings of unrequited appetite, or by taking pledge against the food price boosters end them. To sniff, to taste, to chew, to gorge! — steak, chop, roast, tongue, ribs, wie ners — perhaps to dream ! Aye, there's the rjrub ! For in that dream what visions may come — 12-cent hamburger, 10-cent ten derloin, S-cent liver — to harrow up our starved imaginations! Ah, 'tis the prices that makes cow ards of us all, inclining us rather to accept the vegetary.menu, e'en though in dreams .we rouse such indigestive pangs as sleep may conjure from the baseless fabric of a phantom ham !
THE SHIRE ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
THE SHIRE ELECTIONS. The Lockhart Shire elections re sulted in the re-election of seven out of nine of the retiring councillors. Of the other two one did not offer him self for re-election, and the other suffered defeat at the polls by a nar row margin of votes. In this view of it, it cannot be considered that the ratepayers liad very serious com plaint against the old council. Chief interest, of course, centred in the B Riding where there were nine candi dates for the three seats. Two of these, Messrs Fraser and H. B. Nor mal: were ex-councillors, three of them Messrs Sharpies, Carroll, and Belling had tried before to secure seats, and Messrs W. Westman, A. N. Hutchings, J. B. Dinnell and W. Weedon were the »young colts. OF these three classes, strange to say, one eaqh secured a place — an ex councillor, an old trier and a young colt. The honors of the very keen contest in B Riding unmistakably fell to Mr Alexander Fraser. the 'ex- councillor. by topping the poll in the contest he ...

PRETTY FLOWER-POT COVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
PRETTY FLOWER-POT COVER. Earthenware pots uncovered give an untidy appearance to a room. It is, however, easy enough to manu facture some pretty covers at a small expense. First take two dia gonal strips of fancy silk — a plain ground and a floral pattern is the most effective — and hem these ready to attach to the back and front of cover. The rest of the cover is made of velveteen, preferably of a dark green shade. The top and bottom may be ornamented with braid or cord. When cutting out the cover let it be of the exact shape of the pot for which it is intended only a trifle larger, and line it with sateen or linen to protect the vel vet exterior. A cardboard handle covered in silk should be fastened in its place, thus giving a bucket-like appearance, and this handle should be decorated with ribbon, tied in rosettes or bows, at each side. ?

Cookery. To Dry Vegetables. Expose those you wish to dry, with- . in a short time after they hare been gathered, in shallow wicker baskets, with a gentle heat, in a dark place whe*e there is a current of nir. Then, the moisture being driven off, gradually increase the heat to 150 deg. Fah., in order that they may be fully dried. Finally preserve the more delicate parts, such as the flowers and leaves, in black glass vessels well closed, and keep the rest in suitable vessels so as to prevent the access of light and mois ture. Cinger Cordial Win*. To 10 gallons of water, in which 151b of loaf sugar have been dissolved, put the beaten whites of six eggs. Whisk this well, and boil and skim it.

SALT FOR BEAUTY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
SALT FOR BEAUTY. As a complexion beautifier there are several ways in which salt may be used. Take an equal quantity of water and sufficient rose water tc make with salt a saturated solution for sponging the face, arms, and neck, thus reiining the skin and re moving any trace of oiliness. ! When the complexion looks mud dy, a mixture of salt and milk may be used with very good effect. This is done by pouring a cupful of milk into a little dish, and then adding about one-third of a cup of salt. Al low this to remain in a tolerably warm place for an hour or so, and then the thick creamy mixture must be spread carefully on the skin, and be allowed to stay there for an hour or so before being sponged off. For whitening the teeth salt is excellent not only for removing all traces of a yellow tinge, but because it is a preservative of the gums. For the bath the uses of salt are numerous. Add a cupful of salt to the bath every morning, and the re sult will be found most invigorat ing. The ...
ON PERFUMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
ON PERFUMES. I Many perfumes in the open air become particularly disagreeable in a close room. A whole evening can be spoiled for some by the presence of tuberoses or lilies in a reception room. Their strong fragrance has a very bad effect. Magnolia blossoms, too, have a very delightful perfume in their na tive grove, but woe to her who sleeps through the night with a sin gle blossom on her pillow. There are many fragrant flowers, such as carnation, pink, sweet briar, and apple-blossom, that are as beneficial as they are sweet scented. A vivid perfume is nearly always bracing, while a subtle one is gener ally enervating. One may become positively intoxicated through inhal ing the odour of the peach, and oth er blossoms of the same class, be cuse they all contain a suggesion of prussic acid.
CLEVER POLLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
CLEVER POLLY. Polly was a parrot who lived in a big apartment house, and on all the nice days during the summer Polly sat in her wire cage on the back porch. Like most parrots, she quick ly learnt to imitate people, and one day quite astonished her mistress by calling, 'Potatoes, cabbages, apples — hooray!' just like the greengrocer who drove his waggon down the street every morning. . Polly liked company, and she was never so happy as when the children would play in the yard near her porch. One of the children, Nora, often brought Polly a bit of cracker or apple, and the bird would put down her green and yellow head to have Nora 'scratch.' One day - Nora was busy doing sonie tasks for her mother when she suddenly heard her name called. But none of the children who were ? playing, in the yard had called her. Again, when all the children had gone, she heard her name called. Thinking someone , was playing:,; a joke, she stood in a corner of - the porch to see who the culprit might be....
For Young Folks. ROGUE'S EXCITING DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
For Young Folks. ROGUE'S EXCITING DAY. .? ?? v I was born in a big houso called 'Sea View.' My mother's name was Bessie. I am a fox terrier. My name is Rogue. Why I was called ? Rogue was because I was so naughty. One day, when I was old enough to run about, I went into th® dining room, and I found my master's bed room suppers lying about. 1 knew that they ought not to be there, so I ran upstairs and planted them in front of my little mistress Dinah, and began to tear them to pieces. Now, Dinah loved a bit of fun, so at first she started laughing, but when she saw I had torn them all to bits, she was angry, and started chasing me down the stairs. I ran round the dining-room with the re » mains of the slippers in my mouth, upsotting flower vases, and spilling the water all over the place. Then, into the drawing-room, all over the clean cushions, and then into the garden. It was a big garden, so I managed to hide from lier. She went away after hunting for me a little while. (I was hid...
