LACE-MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 20 March 1914

LACE-MAKING. Lace, as we now understand the term, was not made until the end of the sixteenth century; but nettings, drawn-thread work and elaborate em broideries have been found which date back as far as early Egyptian, Graeco-Roman and Anlo-Saxon times. The most exquisite examples ot what we may call modern lace date fra.n the time of the Renaissance, that wonderful period when all men's pow ers seemed suddenly to gain new life and vigor, and it.: is really no exag geration to say that the lace then pro duced was the finest the world has seen. Tradition has it that Queen Kach erine of Aragon was the first to in troduce the art of lace making as then known into the Midlands, whilst liv ing in retirement at Ampthill. Po >r, unfortunate queen! She passed the dark days while the question of her divorce was being fougbt out "in working with the needle curiously," and so keen was her interest in her humble pupils that at one time when money was scarce and "times bad." she 'burnt all ...

MODERN EDUCATION ADDItESS BY MR BRYCE The Right Hon. James Bryce, upon whom a viscountcy was conferred at the New Vear (says "The Dally Tele graph," of January 3), yesterday open ed the Conference of ISducational rx\s suelations at the University of Lon don, and In the course of his inaugural address mado an earnest plea for the teaching of the Uiblo in the schools, lie also put before the delegates many suggestions of topics which deserved consideration, asking thorn, in conclu sion, why English youths employed abroad showed less interest in their work, than their foreign competitors. This question ho did not answer, but he left It to his hearers as a matter deserving careful thought. Some idea of tho importance of the conference may be gained from tho fact tluit at it are represented numerous Influential educational bodies, among them being the Art Teachers' Guild, the Associations of As.slstant Mistress es, Science Teachers, University Women Teachcrs, and Teachers of Domestic Sub...

TITLED PAUPERS [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 20 March 1914

TITLED PAUPERS Some persons imagine that because a man ijObtfabea a title lie must neces sarily bo ncii isays "liie ulasgow w ceKly Herald." Never was a greater mistake made. More than one noble man has inherited a name of great dis tinction, but he also innerited"*a large number of debts. With property mort gaged and no ready money to meet* juys-sing claims, his position is dis tinctly unenviable. Of course, among* our peers there are a largo number of very wealthy men, but, on the othor nu'ndi many of tho great peopio whoso nomcs you see Jn the Society columns ol newspapers from time to time are noihing more than "titled paupers'— many* of them relatively poorer than ihQ humblest wage-earner. Theirs is a constant light with poverty, which in thpir case is a social crime. Almost every day they are confronted with one prooiem—how toniaKe enus meet in augh a way that it will not be neces sary for them to foreso any of tlio lux uries or pleasures to which thoy im agine they aro entitl...

SECOND THOUGHTS THE REFORMED CHARACTER [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 20 March 1914

SECOND THOUGHTS THE REFORMED CHARACTER {By W. Pctt Ridge, in "The Westmin ster Gazette.") A distinct amount of swaggering | characterised his gait as ,hc came down the road, and the manner . in which he removed a pebble that stood in the way indicated proud determina tion. Ho patted, more than once, the front of his blue serge jacket to make sure that contents of an inside pocket wcro safe. "My responsibility," he said, half nloud, "will soon bo at an end." The small numbers on the doors were of brass, and uso .of chamois ealher made them glisten In the sun shine. liaising the knocker of a cot .uge to give one definite knock, he observed that he had mistaken a 3 for an S. He went back for the spaco of livo houses. "That's my name," said the old lady, with reserve, "but I can't ask you In side because, to tell you the fact, I'm turning out one of the rooms. AVhat have you called about?" "Working up north," replied the young man, "for the hist three months, and I've been on chummy ter...

The Way It Worked. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 20 March 1914

The Way It Worked. "What do you do when people come in and bore you?" a warm per sonal friend asked of a merchant. "When they stay too long the office boy, who is very bright and knows just when to interfere, tells me that a gentleman is in the counting house waiting to see me on import ant business." "Ha! ha! That's a capital way to get rid of bores who don't know " Just theu the boy opened the door and sang out: "Gent in the comitin' house, sir. waiting to see you on 'im portant business.". Reputation may bo a mere bubble, but it makes an awful mess when it bursts. The right kind of a farmer will not put his wife to the trouble of asking to go with him to the city now and again when he goes. Instead, be will steal a march and insist upon her going, which will please her very much.

EYES AND CHARACTER. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 20 March 1914

EYES AND CHARACTER. Most birds of prey, like most sa vages, have eyes of the darkest hues (says Dr. Leonard K. Hirehberg in the San Francisco "Examiner"). This givea their fierce natures an added ferocity. The evolutionists explain the predominance of the black and brown eyes by pointing to the tact that the most vigorous savages and most powerful animals have them', hence it is a question of the survival of the fittest. In a .wild state of nature the blue eye is a handicap. It does not oc cur among the uncivilised human tribes, and but seldom among the brute creatures. One savant main tains that the degree of civilisation and effeminacy present in any race is directly proportional to the number of blue eyes present. Consider for a moment the various emotions to which man is subject. Think of the great number of races there are with regard to the color of the skins. There are dark skinned, red skinned, copper skinned, brown skinned, black skinned, yellow skin ned, white skinned, blu...

A TRUNK AND A TROUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 20 March 1914

A TRUNK AND A TROUGH. "An elephant o£ mine," said an an imal trainer, "has been taught to pump the trough in his winter quar ters full of water every morning. Old Mowgli showed his sense the other day. It was like this: One of the logs supporting the trough had got dis placed. The trough slanted, and as fast as iMowgli pumped the water in, it ran out to the floor. 1 watched him to see what he'd do. He pumped away for a long time before he noticed anything "wrong. Then he left the pump and came and nosed the trough over, grunting discontentedly. The thing was still empty; so he turned to the punvp again. Twice he stopped pumping; twice he studied the trough. Then, of a sudden, he gave a sharp, quick trumpet. He saw what the trouble was, and with a thrust of his trunk he dislodged the other log. and the trough rested, flat and level again, on the ground. Now, without any difficulty, it could 'be filled; and Mow gli, with a grunt that said, 'There! I've settled that difficulty/ returne...

WE SWANKED ON NOTHING. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 20 March 1914

WE SWANKED ON NOTHING. When Jim and I were first married I daresay we were over-careful about money. To begin with, we hadn't much, and when two young people start housekeeping, however carefully they settle just "what things they must have and what these are going to cost, other expenses always crop up, and there isn't much left of the savings at the end of it all. So naturally they start by being as economical as pos sible. Then the children came, and we had to think three or four times over every penny for a bit. But after a few years, -when George and Mary were old enough to go to school, things be gan to look up. For one thing, Jim left the foundry and took up -with motors, and made very good money. Then my grand mother died and .left me fifteen pounds, as I'd always been her favor ite. And finally Jim put up for the District Council and got elected, so that he felt we ought to make a bit more of a show than we had done in the past First of all, we must needs move out of the co...

Why the Horse Laughed [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 20 March 1914

Why the Horse Laughed "I m-as in a county court the other day," said the seedy-looking cabman, "and I hoard one of thoso solicitor chaps say, 'People don't seem to under stand that the only thing necessary to keep a horse from kicking -when he is down is to get hold of his ear and keep his nose up in the air. A horse cannot kick when his noso is in the aJr. 1 have seen a lady keep a horse quiet that way without soiling her gloves.' 'What's good enough for a lady,' says I, 'is good enough for me,' and I tried it experimental-like, in stead of sittin' on his 'ead." "Well," remarked the attentive list ener, "did the horse kick?" "Not a bit! He seemed so tickled with the idea that he couldn't stir for laflin'! But I think I shall sit on his 'ead next time, all the same."

THE EFFICIENT WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 20 March 1914

THE EFFICIENT WOMAN. Just so soon as women appreciate that being a woman is being the most desired thing in the world, just 60 soon aB they realise that efficiency is the strongest ibulwark bet-ween themselves and the world, at that moment will the 'weak, dawdling women stop playing at being women and 'work to make themselves women in earnest. They will make a busi ness of being ■women, just as a man makes a business of being a banker or a tailor. Efficiency will do more to solve the divorce problem than any number of laws.

Care of the Litter. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 20 March 1914

Care of the Litter. If the litter is strong and hardy, it should lie ready for weaning when six weeks old. Generally, there are oue or two youngsters in the litter which do noi stow so well as the others, and it is advisable and pro fitable io let these remain with the' sow for a week or two longer. When pigs reaeli the age of five or six months, if intended for fattening, thev should he confined instead of being allowed to run about, which is a good sys:em for breeding sows. They may be fed oti any of the by products of the farm, along with the wliey, skim, or sour milk.

THE ART OF CARVING. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 20 March 1914

I THE ART OF CARVING. Can-Ins is an art, as every house wife known, and especially those -who, now and again, have experienced the vexation of seeing the joint so much "hacked about" by the unskilful car ver that (he only resource left was to mince the meat. The good carver alms at two things—to serve all as nearly equally as possible, with due attention, of course, to personal pre ferences for "under-done." "-well done," not fat, and the rest, and—to leave the joint in a neat condition, frt to return to the table, if needed. An expert on carving gives the fol lowing very useful detailed instruc tions:— A loin of veal should be started at. the small end and the ribs cut apart and served with a piece of the kid ney and fat on each plate. A breast of veal should be separat ed from brisket, and both cut in pieces. If. loins of veal and mutton are jointed by the butcher they -will be more easily carved. A leg of mutton should be carved across the middle of the bono first, and then from ...
