Foiled Again. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 8 July 1914
Foiled Again. Papa Bending keeps a pretty sharp eye on his daughter Mary, and many a would-be lover has taken a walk for a few minutes' conversation with the hard-hearted parent. "You seem like a nice young man, and perhaps you are in love with Mary?" "Yes, I am," was the honest- reply! "Haven't said anything to her yet, have you?" continued Papa Bending. "Well, no; but I think she recipro cates my affection." "Does, eh? Well, let me tell you. something. Her mother died a luna tic, and there's no doubt that Mary has inherited her insanity." :" I "I'm willing to take the chances," replied the lover. "Yes; but, you see, Mary has a terrible temper. She. has twice drawn a knife on me with intent to commit murder." "I'm used to that—got a sister just like her," was the answer. "And you should know that I have sworn a solemn oath not to give Mtry a penny of my property," con tinued the father. "Well, I'd rather start poor and build up. There's more romance in it, Mr. Bending/' continued t...

DURING REST HOURS. "The bedroom," said a sanitary ad riser, "is a place to be studied especial*, ly, as during sleep the body is less able to resist injurious influences than In-waking hours. "The bed should, if possible, b&lt;? placed with the head or foot against the wall, so that free access may be had to both sides of it when the bed is made. Another reason is that if. prevents *ha sleeper lyin^..with hia face to the wall, and thus breathing over and over again the air exhaled trom his lungs. "As to ventilation, get rid of tK idea that the night air is injurious, is really purer than the dust, sr ind - germ-laden air of the day :owns, at least), and should be fr dmitted during sleeping hours."

MAKES BODY TRANSPARENT. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 8 July 1914
MAKES BODY TRANSPARENT. A new method of giving medical students instructions which, it is said, will largely obviate the necessity of dissection, will shortly be put into practice at the Hahnemann Medical College, Philadelphia. Physicians and surgeons connected with the depart ment of anatomy are now perfecting the process, which originates through the recent discovery by a German scientist of a fluid toy the use of which the human body can toe rendered transparent. The fluid, which is composed of sev eral oils, .turns the flesh into a sort of transparent jelly when injected, en abling the student to study the veins, muscles and bones far 'better, it is as serted, than if they resorted to the dissecting knife, it is said to be one of the most valuable discoveries in medical science of late years. .
KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 8 July 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. To relieve toothache, rub baking soda round .the tooth and rinse the mouth with hot water. To polish a black marble clock rub over with olive oil and finish with a clean chamois leather. Varnished paper on walls should be cleaned with a flannel dipped in weak tea and polished with a dry cloth. When baking small cakes or buns, flour the tins instead of greasing them. The cakes will not stick to the tins, and will bake quite as well. A simple, effective glue that is narmless, colorless, and odorless can be made by adding ordinary tapioca to water and boiling. When plates and dishes have to be warmed in the oven, if a newspaper is placed underneath, it will break the heat and prevent the plates from cracking. | Frost-bitten vegetables should be soaked in cold water for one hour be fore boiling. A piece of saltpetre should.be added to the water in which they are cooked. Where screws are driven into soft wood and subjected to considerable strain, they are very likely to...

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 8 July 1914
J?ROM VARIOUS SOURCES! Distance lends enchantment—but not when you're taking your girl home in a taxi-cab.—"New York Tri bune." The esteemed weather clerk has sprung a new one. It is the word "smog,' and it means smoke and fog7. The clerk explains that very frequent-, ly there are times when this mixture is apparent in the atmosphere, and it considers the new word a 'great little idea. Very well, "smog" let it be. But why end there? Let's call a mixture of snow and mud "smud." A mixture of snow and soot "snoot," and"a mix ture of snow and liail "snail.'', Thus we might have a weather forecast— "Snail to-day, turning to snoot to night; to-morrow smoggy with smud." —"Kokomo Times."

Night -after night the big halls in the city or one or other of the s'uburbs are full of happy j dancers, and the season, so far, is ! proving immensely enjoyable. The I civic ball at St. Kilda is always one | of the events of the year, and that ! held last week was no exception. They, had a glorious color .scheme for the decorations, and with nigh on a thousand of our elite, with the women folk in their most elaborate and ex ! pensive frocks, it was a! fairy sight' , for wondering eyes to linger on. ( Hebrew representation in St. 'Kilda is . a strong one, and as usual there were : many comely Jewesses among the . guests. Hawthorn also had a most | ■ successful function, and likewise Prah ran. None of the flew dances were included at the mayoral functions,^ but they have been much in evidence at other public and semi-private gather ings.

BUTTER FROM THE NORTH. DRY AUTUMN AFFECTS VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 8 July 1914
BUTTER FROM THE NORTH. | DRY AUTUMN AFFECTS VICTORIA. ; Victoria, which,, recovered herself from the boom calamity by starting the Australian dairy industry, now: re ceives butter from Queensland ' and New South Wales—States which but tardily followed her into this field of rural, enterprise. Shiploads of Syd ney and Brisbane butter are coming into Melbourne every week. The cir cumstance is not usual. Victoria had a dry autumn and the Northern States a. wet one; at the same time, butter prices keep low in London, and con sequently Melbourne agents .were,.able to get butter down from the two other capitals at a price which allowed pro fitable competition with the local pro duct. The occux'r.ence .goes to show that Australia is rapidly becoming a self-sustaining country, as she should -be. Not many years ago Australia was importing butter from Europe, and now she is helping to find the old sWorld in that and many other food stuffs. ' ■ '
THE COMING HORN OF PLENTY [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 8 July 1914
THE COMING HORN OF PLENTY Even if the world should not be fee Dn chemical products, there is every reason to believe that the. food of a few generations hence will diffei greatly from' that of to-dayv ~ As" popu- - lation grows we may possibly tend to become vegetarians, for it has been found that double the land is neces sary to sustain one man on fresh meat than on wheat. The time is approach Ing when the human race will, we are "old, live chiefly on the fruit of trees. A.n acre of banana plantation will feed Zfy human beings, while a potato field of the same size would support only two, and a wheat farm only one; a srove of full-grown chestnut tropswill yield Bix times as much nourishment per acre as any cereal crop. With the reclaiming of desert areas, date palms, banana, and other fruit will result in a j vast new supply of food.
