WHAT QUEEN MARY DISLIKES. The Tango Banned. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 7 May 1914

WHAT QUEEN MARY DISLIKES. The Tang6 Banned. - ! The ultra-smart set has no friend )in Queen Mary. With the freak fash ions and the eccentric pleasures of a . .-certain section of society Her Majes: >r- ity has no sympathy. On more than -one; occasion, indeed, the Queen has ; expressed her strong disapproval of the extremes to which people carry their pleasures nowadays, and she has .set her face very strongly against ■ the periodical crazes in which the •elite, in search of new and novel pas • - times, indulge. ' • It has tbeen known for some time that Her Majesty considered that the ' . • latest dances, particularly the tango, are quite unsuitable for the ballroom, and neither at Buckingham Palace nor at houses which Her Majesty visits ■ - will they figure on the programmes. Not that the Queen objects to dan cing; indeed, she is very fond of the waltz, schottisclie, polka and other ■ graceful dances. In her attitude to wards the tango she is supported toy ■ King George, who, lik...

Corns. A. corn is uot a callosity, although •' often so called for the two things are ; produced in different ways. ■ A cal 'losity is due to pressure intermit : tentl-y applied ; a co? u is due to more ' or less constant pressure,, combined (with friction. .A callosity is super ficial ; a. corn is well described in its •Latin name clavus, a nail. It is like a nail drivsn into the tender tissues of the lower layers of the skin and the' parts beneath. Paring a corn, the usual treatment may give a little relief for a time by relieving the pressure, but soon the horny growth is pushed above the.

Every night the sufferer should go to bed with a thin poultice, or a wad of absorbent cot teh- saturated with glycerine find w;ater,' on the corn, the surface be fore the application being thickly;', ...

A Fishy Story. In our town at home was a pomp ous "self-made" 'man who was wont to boast of his affluence. Two compan ions were one day discussing his merits and demerits. . "Yes," said the first, "he is 'a big fish' now, surely enough!" > "True," said the other, "but like many big fish, he began life on a 'small scale'!" An open-air orartor once received this poser. "I tell you, gentlemen," he exclaim ed—"and the experience of a lifetime confirms my statement—that if you want a thing "well done you must dp it yourself!" ..

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 7 May 1914

KITCHEN WRINKLES. Lime powder well sprinkled where cockroaches abound will drive them away. 'If .bacon is soaked in watef* for a few minutes before frying it will pre vent the fat from running. When starching holland pinafores, put a little strong tea into the starch. . This keeps the garments a good col or. When boiling fowls or fish, add to . the water in which they are boiled the juice of half a lemon. This will make tliem beautifully white. If moths are in a carpet, spread a damp towel over the part and iron it dry with a hot iron. The heat and steam will kill the worms and eggs. When* washing chamois leathers add a little ammonia to the water. This cleans them beautifully, and helps to make them soft and pliable. When making a roly-poly pudding, after spreading the paste with jam. sprinkle a layer of fine breadcrumbs ^before rolling and tying up. This pre- _ vents the jam from 'boiling out.

"POETIC JUSTICE." Making the Punisment Fit the Crime [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 7 May 1914

"POETIC jUsTi'C'Ey^^ Making the Pun.i»...uc.ic Fit the Crime Some time ago a well-known writer , .severely criticised our present system for sending people to prison for crimes '.as different in character as thieving and uttering a criminal libel. -He as serted that the punishment should be made more to fit the crime, and tome .judges, especially in America, are be ginning to follow out his ideas. For instance, the other day a man named 3rant was charged in Ohio with steal ing eggs. The judge ordered him to go to prison for five days, and to be fed during the whole of that time on a diet of eggs only. At the expiration •of his sentence Brant declared that lie had become so tired of eggs that. would never eat another one again, .so that the judge's novel sentence has effected a radical cure in this particu lar case. In California, if a man should fail to support his wife and family, he is .sent to prison, where he is made to work hard and pay a daily sum to his "better-half" out of t...

PREPARATION OF SHEEP SKINS FOR MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 7 May 1914

PREPARATION OF SHEEP SKINS FOR MARKET. In the preparation of sheep skins for market we would like to emphasise the care that is necessary in the tak ing off of the skin and its drying. The utmost care should be taken to avoid cutting or damaging the pelt when skinning. All fat or meat must be cut off, the leg and face pieces remov ed, and care exercised to prevent any blood or dirt getting on either the wool or flesh side. As regards drying, it is necessary first to spread out the skins in the shade and finish drying them either on wires or in sheds where the weath er cannot affect them. Particular care must be taken to dry the points of the skin. The skin should, when properly dried, be folded in two, head to tail, wool outside, and pressed into bund les, weighing about 1 to lYz cwt. In tying the bundles, it is just, as well to see that* the rope (or wire, if rope is not obtainable) is tied around each end, so that it is impossible for thieves to pull out skins during transit to ma...
