John's Church, Ballarat, preached his farewell ser mons to large congregations. At St. Paul's, Linton, the oldest churchgoers could not re member a larger assemblage of people within those walls. Oil Monday evening there was a large and representative gathering at the Parish Hall, where a social evening was tendered to Mr and Mrs Best. Archdeacon Tucker presided, and in open ing the proceedings, said it seemed only the other day that they had welcomed Mr and Mrs Best. That was a meeting of hope and anticipation, which had been fully realised. Mr Best had come with matured powers and qualities, and a fine record. Both Mr and Mrs B.iSt had grown into the life of the par ish and become part and parcel of it. Wher ever Mr Best went he maintained the home like character of the Church, and tried to "contribute to the happiness and peac...
Smartly Rebuked. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 9 January 1915
Smartly Rebuked. . The smart boy is sometimes in tolerable, and deserves the rebuff he occasionally gets. An old, well-inten tioned lady and a smart youth were the only occupants of a railway com partment. After the train moved out of the station the youth took out a cigarette and, lighting it, puffed away —much to the old lady's disgust. By and bye she said: "Don't you know, my boy, that it is wrong to smoke?" "Oh," replied the youth, as he emit ted a volume of smoke from his mouth and nearly choked the old lady, "I smoke for my liea.th." "Health!" exclaimed the other, after the effects of the smoke had been overcome. "You never surely heard of anything being cured by smoking?" "Yes, I have," declared the youth, in a tone intended to set off his su perior knowledge; "that's the way they cure pigs." "Smoke away, then," promptly 're torted the old lady, as she settled herself in a corner; "there's prpb ably hope for you yet!" 1 The funny things that happen to other people are always ...
MAKING DAD CAPITULATE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 9 January 1915
MAKING DAD CAPITULATE. "What! Another new dress?" Pop slinger stormed,, as his daughte-r non chalantly made her request. . "Why, .you had one not more than a minute ago!" "The very idea!" said his daughter. "I haven't had a new one since—why, not for ages." » v "One minute ago," repeated Pop slinger firmly. "The younger genera tion is going to the dogs! When your mother and I were young, the girls had two new dresses a year—a cali co one and,, a woollen one—and they looked just as pretty and had just as many beaux as you extravagant young things now. They thought of some thing else besides running their poor old father into bankruptcy! You get a new dress and wear it twice and somebody who is envious of it si iffs and then you say it is perfectly hide ous and you would die rather than be seen in • that disreputable old rag again! "It's all because you have been al lowed to 'read novels where the Lady Ermentrude Gewhillikens trails her pale satin gown recklessly, over the dewy turf a...
The Bovine Beauty. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 9 January 1915
The Bovine Beauty. It all originated at a small grocery | store where they sold anything from i sand to a pearl necklace. A farmer I had gone for some liniment to rub I on his cow's bad leg. The bungling grocer gave. the old farmer, however, some Cologne instead of the liniment. The day following the farmer came back in a great rage. "Look here," he said to the grocer, "I wish you'd be careful how you I chuck things over the counter. You , gave me Cologne yesterday instead I of liniment, an' I put it on me blessed cow afore I knowed.' | "I hope it hasn't done her any harm," said the grocer in a mollify I ing tone. "Harm be hanged!" snapped the j farmer. "That 'ero cow won't eat I now, nor allow 'erself to be milled. The only thing she doe? is to sigh, the whole day long, and go and look I at her reflection in the pond."
Happy Valley Reunion. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 9 January 1915
The third annual reunion of the Happy Valley Old Scholars' Association was held at the State school on Boxing Pay, 26th December, and was quite as success ful as the former gatherings. "Visitors were present from all parts of the State, and New South Wales and Queensland were also represented. They were met at the Happy Valley railway station and conveyed to the old school, where many had received their education from 20 to 40 years ago. The ringing of the bell re minded them of the old days, and the sight of old and familiar faces revived their memories, bringing back incidents which had almost been forgotten. It was some time before they could be prevailed upon to come in to Lunch, but at last all v/er e; seated,. and, Mr.. Ev/Morgan,_4i>tlie; , absence of the president, (Mr G. Fitches), . extended a hearty welcome to all on be half of the Association. A splendid lun cheon had been provided by the local com mittee, and as there were approximately 200 present, it was well that t...
DECEPTIVE DISTANCES. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 9 January 1915
DECEPTIVE DISTANCES. ! There is, perhaps, no question i which provokes more interest "and the answer more discussion and am ; usement than the following, innocent j ly put to a circle of friends while j standing on the sea front or basking i in the sun on the sands:— I "How far would you say that ship j is that we can just see on the hori | zon?" The first will probably answer with ! decision, "Ten miles." I The second will now remark that "Distances are so deceptive over water,, you know; I think you would find it nearer twenty than ten." Then a third and fourth will treat with scorn the opinions of the others and give their own particular esti mates. For the sake of argument let us im agine that the participators in the dis cussion are all of exceptional stature —that they are well over six feet in height. Now tell them calmly that standing on a level with the sea, looking over the water on a clear day, the very farthest 'it is possible to see is a dis tance of approximately three...

CHAPTER XVI. A Mother's Sin. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 9 January 1915
CHAPTER XVI. A Mother's Sin. It was June, and Sydney was spending the day with Maggie Gra ham. It was glorious weather, and the two women were sitting in the drawing-room, with the long French windows that led into the sunny, flower-bright garden that was Mag gie's pride and joy, wide open. "Do come away with ub, Sydney," I j urged Maggie, for the third time. "You are looking awfully fagged and white. A week or two at the sea would do you a world of good, and you. know we all want you." "It's very good of you, and you know I am very grateful, but I really can't, Maggie." "But I don't see why not. We are not going for three weeks; that would give you plenty of time to get ready. And you have no real ties to keep you in London." "No, unfortunately. You can hard ly realise, perhaps, just what that means, not to be really wanted by anyone—you who have your home,, your husband, your children." "Yes, but you might have all those, too," answered Maggie, significantly. Being a woman, she co...

CHAPTER XV. What Might Have Been. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 9 January 1915
CHAPTER XV. What Might Have Been. It "was with very mixed feelings that Sydney dressed for dinner on the following evening-. Joy at the thought of seeing Dick again warred with dis gust and shame and scorn at the rea son and occasion of meeting .him. More than once she stopped short in her dressing and felt that she could not go through with it, that she must send a wire, and plead sudden head ache or illness. And then Sadie's de spairing face rose up before her and the recollection of her own promise, and once again her resolution strengthened. Punctually at eight o'clock she rang, and was admitted by the same butler who had hesitated to admit her before. She could not help thinking how much had happened since she ■had last seen him and had last enter ed that house. He took her cloak from her and hung it up in the hall, and preceded her up the wide oak staircase, she following with beating heart and a curious sense of excite ment and expectation. The Joor was thrown open, and "Miss...
Skipton News. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 9 January 1915
The Xmas and New Year holidays passed off rather quietly in this township. A dance, got up by Messrs .Lawson Nicholls and C. Grist, was held on Boxing Dighfc in aid of the Eed Cross funds ; and on New Year's night a concert and dance were held by the local brass band, the concert program being given by local and visiting performers, A picnic at the Widderin caves was held on New • Year's Day, and was largely attended. On Tuesday of last week a meeting was held by about 40 residents to see if Dr Bar* rett's services could not be retained for this town and district. Rev. H. T. Hull presided, and after discussion a deputation was chosen to wait on Dr Barrett and confer with him on the subject. Terms, were fixed, and-"wh'en ~ diecide^o;iendeay6r-td;; meet; them.

Presently Sadie raised her eyes, and Sydney was shocked at the hag gard misery in them. "I expect you think I'm mad?" she said at last. "Sometimes I think I am. But I'm quite sane no.w. I have come to ask you to help me, for you are the only soul in the world who can." "Of course, I gladly will if I can." "You can, if you will. I want you to give back my' husband to me." Sydney turned white, and her hands clenched each other in her lap. "I don't understand you," she an swered, coldly. "Your husband is nothing to me." "Are you sure?" asked Sadie, rais ing uncanny eyes to her face. "Well, any way, you are something—I begin to think you are everything—to him." "Really, Mrs. Kenyon," said Syd ney, rising to her f^et, her indigna ? tion getting the better of her, "I can not sit and listen to you if you...
Smythesdale Sports. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 9 January 1915
One of the most popular country sporting events of the year in the district—the Smy thesdale athletic carnival—was held on Box ing day. This year's fixture proved excep tionally interesting on account of the record number of entries booked, and the large num ber of people who travelled from Ballarat and the surrounding district in spite of the pre vailing sullen weather, were not disappointed in their expectation of witnessing a good day's sport. Music lovers were well catered for by the City of Ballarat Band, and the recreation grounds were excellently laid out, both for the conveniences of the public and the athletes." The gate and other receipts were much in excess to any other previous year's takings, and the sport3 committee are tirbe^ congratulated upon the success of their undertakings and the smooth workings of the arrangements. The chief events resulted as follows :— Maiden Race, 100 yards.—R. Oorbett, 1; S. Donelly, 2 ; W. TrafEord, 3. Sheffield Handicap, 130 yards.—P. Man...
£200 FOR A GERMAN FLAG. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 9 January 1915
£200 FOR A GERMAN FLAG. For over forty years there has smouldered in the heart of every, loyal Frenchman—and Frenchwoman too—the spark which has become now he flame of patriotism and intense feeling against the German people which has swept' over France. . It may be summed up in the one word "Revanche"—revenge for the pitiless indignities and heavy burdens heaped upon the stricken nation by the victorious Prussians in the war of 1S70-1S71. And nothing is more indicative of the spirit which has been nursed by the sons and daugh ters of France during the last two generations than a little incident of twenty years ago which has been re called by the capture of the first Ger man flag. When in 1893 the will of M. ae Plunkett, a Parisian theatre director, was opened, it was found that he had Biade a bequest of £200 to "the French soldier who should be the first to capture a German regimental flag when the day came for France to claim a 'revanche' for the defeats of 1870." The Paris Munici...

Shire Territory Wanted. GRENVILLESHIRE APPROACHED BY NEIGHBORING BOROUGHS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 9 January 1915
GRENVILLESHIRE APPROACHeI BF NEIGHBORING BOROUGHS. * At the Grenvilleshire Council meeting on Thursday, a deputation of the councillors and officers of the Borough of Browns and Scarsdale and Smythesdale attended to aak that certain Bhire territory be oeded to them to permit them to amalgamate and continue to esist as a joint municpality. Mayor Daniels, of Browns and Scarsdale, was the first speaker. He said that, accord, ipg to the Local Government Act," their little'municipality-had not sufficient revenue to permit of its continuance as a borough. The only way to maintain it was to amal gamate with Smythesdale and ask for 4pre territory from Grenvilleshire to bring Weir revenue up to the £300 required. They had a claim on the shire, whose boundary cut through the borough territory from end to end, and on behalf of whose ratepayers they maintained a number of roads and bridges, Formerly the boundaries were alright, but now they were all wrong. Recently the borough paid half the cos...
WAR PROPHETS. Strange Forecasts of the Great Conflict. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 9 January 1915
WAR PROPHETS. Strange Forecasts of the Great Conflict. That clever Parisian, chiromancer, Mme. de Thebes, whose prophecies in the past have proved so startling ly correct that she has been consult ed by kings and statesmen, wrote in ner almanac for 1914, issued last win ter:— "This year we will pass through the gravest and most decisive hours. It will be a year especially happy for France, in spite of blood, in spite of tears, and in spite of uneasy omens. Victory! victory! We have nothing to rear from the trials of fate. France will emerge in strength, reconstituted by war." Regarding Germany she said: "All is disquieting in her destiny. The person of the Emperor is himself threatened by fate. It is not the eagle of victory he bears on his hel met." The Allies will find further encour agement in a letter written in 1870 by lilinile Ollivier, Premier of France, at tne beginning of the Franco-Prussian War, to the King of Prussia after the third Napoleon's fall. The letter con tains p...
