Gippsland Sailing Coy. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 25 June 1914
SGdppsland Sailing .Coy. The report of the directors of the Gippsland and Northern Co operative Selling Company Limited for the* year ending April 3o:h states that the turn over in the butter and diiry produce department shows an increase of £4013 over the previous year, and hut for the very dry weather in January and Febru ary the increase wou!d>have been con siderably greater. In the grain depart ment the quantity of produce received was 367,457 bags, as against 254,157 for the previous year, showing an in crease of 113,300 bags, or 44 per cent; but, owing to, the very much lower prices ruling for several of the principal lines the money value shows a decrease of ^824. This very materially affected the net profit, for, whilst the working expenses involved in handling the in creased quantity were much greater, the commission earned was less. With out allowing for interest and deprecia tion, the net profit in the box factory is ^150, but the report adds that the butter factories ...

Oho to Father. . .

Not very long ago he had occasion'^to visit a navvies' camp on the Batrnsdale Orhost line.

Upon the navvy declining the offer, Father Ryan toolc out ha'.f-a-sovereign from his pocket, and in the presence of the camp offered to bet the fellow the ros that he (Father Ryan, who is a strong muscular man) would shift more earth ...

Helping the Treasurer. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 25 June 1914
Helping the Treasurer. 'i'&e difficulty experienced nowadays in deciding what to tax and what to leave untaxed recalls the story of an earlier Treasurer, who was reduced to despair in similar circumstances.

The friends suggestion came by re turn. "Put a tax on umbrellas," lie wrote, "and make the bishops order the prayer for rain to be read in all the churches."

Where She Beat Them. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 25 June 1914
Where She Beat Them. The superintehdent-of a charitable ■ institution for the aged poor in a1 certain district says that there is no i topic more pleasing to some poor old j women than the discussion of their "better days," when they were the j fortunate possessors of "everything' heart could wish for," as they are aptj to express it. I One old lady in the institution is | never tired of describing the finery; she had when she was a bride; an other boasted of having once owned a "gold-band chiny tea-set" and six solid silver teaspoons; while a third dwelt at length on the elegance of a flowered silk gown and satin parasol with fringe fifteen inches long. One poor old lady stood this sort of talk as long as she could. Then she calmly interrupted with— "Well, I never had no chiny tea tliings, nor no silk gowns, nor em broidered petticoats, not openwork stockings, nor gold ear-rings, nor no thin' of that sort; but I have had four husbands, an' I'd like to know whether any of you can be...
A BEAUTY SECRET. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 25 June 1914
A BEAUTY SECRET. The beauty of freshness, though not of feature, may be secured by any healthy woman, and it is certain ly worth striving for. To secure a nice, clear complexion, bathe night and morning, using warm water and a good soap, which must be thoroughly rinsed off before drying. Bat in moderation, avoiding all indi gestible foods, strong tea, coffee and alcohol. Keep as cheery and amiable as possible, for nothing causes uglier lines in the face than depression and ill-temper. When washing tlie hands, rub them over with a bit of lemon, for the juice has a cleansing and softening effect on the skin. Lemon-juice, diluted with an equal quantity of water, is some times used ' to remove freckles, but for many, people this remedy would be to drastic.

IT MEANS WEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 25 June 1914
IT MEANS WEALTH. Raising live stock always produces more wealth in the country. It means greater investment, which, in turn, brings in greater revenue. When crops are grown and the products sold soil is impoverished and little revenue is received, whereas when these crops are food to good animals they bring in a great deal more revenue and the soil is improved.
THE DIFFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 25 June 1914
THE DIFFERENCE. The farm hand sometimes thinks that he has a hard time, but, after all, he is a lucky fellow. All he has to do is what he is told. He doesn't have to worry about running a farm and paying wages, or ponder over crop ro tation and other things. When the hired man shuts the stable door after supper he forgets about his work, whereas his employer goes to sleep pondering over keeping down expen ses.
PATTERN FOR CHILD'S SLEEPING SUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 25 June 1914
PATTERN FOR CHILD'S SLEEPING SUIT. In cold weather no mother should fail to make her child one of these cosy little sleeping suits. Flannel, of course, is by far the most suitable ma terial to use. It represents "Every lady's Journal" pattern No. 46 and is cut in two sizes—for children, of four and six years. This pattern may be bought for ninepence from local pattern agent or will be sent post free to any ad dress if ninepence in stamps is sent to Dept. A, "Everylady's Journal," 376 Swanston-street, Melbourne. State number of pattern and size required. If a penny stamp is sent to above ad dress a 48-page catalogue will be sent to any feader who writes "send free catalogue."
CHILDREN'S BEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 25 June 1914
CHILDREN'S BEDS. A child's bed should slope a little from the head to the foot, so that the head may be a little higher than the feet, but never bend the neck to get the head on to a pillow. This makes the child round-shouldered, cramps the veins and arteries, and interferes | with the free circulation of the blood. Even when a child is several years old the pillow should be thin and made of hair, and not on any account of feath ers.
THE NEED OF ENJOYMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 25 June 1914
THE NEED OF ENJOYMENT. During moments of rest and re pose, do not think ot doing things, but think of enjoying things. The man who is always thinking of do ing things may produce the quantity for a time, but the time will be short, and the quality will be absent entire ly. The best results are always se cured when thoughts of doing things are. frequently alternated with thoughts of enjoying things. The simplest, the easiest, and the quickest way to recuperate the mind is to think of enjoying things. A few moments of such thoughts are usu ally sufficient to restore full mental vigor; but those moments must be given over completely to thoughts of enjoyment. The doing of things must be wholly forgotten for the time being, and the mind must give its all to the pleasing picture that it has chosen to entertain.
PROFIT POINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 25 June 1914
PROFIT POINTS. Give more attention to the orchard, the garden, the poultry and the farm animals, and it will not be necessary to worry all the time over the general crops. With fruits, vegetables, poul try, eggs, milk, butter, pork, and oth er articles of food raised on the farm for the family table it will not require very large crops to make you inde pendent.
WOULD YOU BE POPULAR? [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 25 June 1914
WOULD YOU BE POPULAR? On this subject the following hints, which are, cf course, sarcastic, are worth attention:— Always talk about yourself. It shows individuality and a high de gree of self-respect. Talk frequently. People may lose valuable ideas by your silence; toe sides, it is wicked to waste time by listening to the idle chatter of other folk. When you are hearing a story you have heard 'before, do not fail to inter rupt and tell the narrator that he is relating something as old as the hills. It saves valuable time, and will pre vent him from feeling foolishly vain of his powers. Always make as much litter as you can. It may provide employment for those who might otherwise suffer from listlessness and indolence. Never speak ill of your friends. A much greater effect may be produced if you sigh and shake your head when their names are mentioned. The list eners will then understand that their shortcomings are too serious to be [ dealt with in mere speech. f If you are not univer...
HOW TO MAKE HEALTHY AND HAPPY HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 25 June 1914
HOW TO MAKE HEALTHY AND HAPPY HOMES. The object of this article is to im press upon the minds of our young women readers that the refinements of fashion, the duties of the toilet, and whatever else composes the harmless "amusements of young women, should on no account, unless in very particu lar instances, impede their course of instruction in the more useful and lasting duties of domestic life. To preserve a house, however humblf or however costly, in the best passible order, to have a knowledge in the making up of female attire, and to be learned in the divers processes of cookery,' are qualities absolutely es sential to all young women, if they have any ambition to be placed at the head of a domestic establishment. The house being the appropriate kingdom of the wife, it is necessary that she should be a thorough mistress of all its faults, and in no instance be left at the mercy of servants, who, even if anxious to please, are seldom competent to carry on a household in its diffe...
