Unto the Third & Fourth Generation. CHAPTER XVII. The Inhabitants of Dalkeith. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 14 January 1914

Unto the Third & Fourth Generation. By Marjorie Weatherly. CHAPTER XVII. ■ : The Inhabitants of Dalkeith. "Farewell, my friends; farewell, my foes; My p£ace with these, my love with those." —Burns. 1 In Dalkeith the old interest and ex- j citement were roused in the Leslie j murder. The inhabitants could speak . of nothing else. No such tragedy had ever occurred there before. "Poor Miss Lennox!" said they all. What a trouble had fallen upon her! Laura had said they would all talk and they would all say it was her father, and none of them would doubt it, either. No matter* now sorry they might be for lier, ".Air. Lennox" was the one subject of interest. "It is absolute nonsense to say ihe had nothing to do with it," volunteer ed Mr. Asiicroft. He was passing around cake at the tennis tea when the subject came up. "From the be . ginning I always said it was he." "l trust the rest of us took a more charitable view of things," returiied Mrs. Clark, severely. She was not at all f...

RABBIT DESTRUCTION. The following advice is given by Mr. Frank Allan, Chief Inspector: [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 14 January 1914

RABBIT DESTRUCTION. ♦ The folio-wing- advice is given by Mr. Frank Allan, Chief Inspector:— The' following poisons are used, throughout Victoria by the Crown at the present time:—Phosphomcd pollard; stryclinined apples, carrots, quinces, and pears. These have been found ample for requirements. Other poisons used by land-holders a.re phosphorized wheat and oats,, jam and stiychnine. Some_ land-holders still prefer to use grain, but I wish to impress the fact that no grain is now used by this Department, which is relying on phosphorized pollard, strycli nined fruit and carrots. These met hods .have been proved infinitely better than grain poisoning. Apples and Strychnine.-—Cut up the apples into baits about half-an inch to five-eights square. Dust with °loz. strychnine, powdered, to 10 or 121bs. of apples, say, with a large-sized pepper-castor. Add sugar in the proportion of about lib. to 15 or 201bs. of apples, dusted on the bait, has been found a great addi tional attraction. This a...

A TRIP ABROAD. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 14 January 1914

A TRIP ABROAD. Mr. James Davies, Secretary of ! the Commercial Travellers' Assooi ation, speaking at a "welcome-home" social, said of his trip to America and England:— "I was very much struck with the beautiful system of roads and side walks in Canada and the Western States >of America—in fact, right through America. The subdividers are very enterprising in those parts. I saw in one city 600 acres laid out with complete cement roads, side walks, electric light, water, tele phones, and trams, before a house was built. Then they will 'wade in' and sell the blocks. Sometimes they 'fall in,' but, generally speak ing, their methods impressed me as decidedly more enterprising than anything- Ave have in Australia. Of course, as you know, in Canada and the United States there are no fences between blocks. No such thing as a fence is known, and it • seems to lead to no difficult}' as far as I could see. There is a library on eveiy Am erican train. A rather amusing fea ture is that in some...

YOU SHOULD BE DETERMINED in rejecting the worthless and frequently in jurious counterfeits which are sometimes pushed for the sake of greater „ajn as "jua( as good" as the GENUINE SANDER AND SONS' PURE VOLATILE EUCALYPTI EXTRACT. Be not deceived ! SANDER'S EXTRACT is recognised by the highest medical authorities as possessing unique stimulating, healing and antiseptic powers. The preparation of SANDER'S EXTRACT from the pure selected leaves, and the refinement by special processes give it curative virtues peculiarly its own. There fore, be not misled! Demand and insist upon the GENUINE SANDER EXTRACT, and you will derive the benefit that thousands have derived from it before. When ill you should not . depress yourself more by the common, bulky and nauseating eucalyptus oils and so-called extracts. What you want is quality and .reliability in small dose, and this you find only in — SANDER'S EXTRACT. Mr A. W. Crowe, local agent for Messrs Adamson. Strettle & Co., will forward ...

THE LOST STUD. A CHRISTMAS STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 14 January 1914

THE LOST STUD. A CHRISTMAS STORY. "John," said Lady Letterston, "I be lieve you're in love with her." Eve Neyland—the new governess at Letterston Court—had just passed the windows. My cousin, Netta, glanced at me, and I felt myself grow red. "Oh, John!" she deplored. "Well, what's the matter?" I argued desperately. "Supposing I have—why shouldn't I? She's beautiful. She's an angel to Roy" (that's Netta's little boy). "My job here as estate stew ard gives me a good house and a good screw " "You're worth double. Harry said so only yesterday. But " "There are no 'but&' unless she says 'no'—and I refuse to contemplate that,"I broke in. My dear Netta, a year ago it would have been different. I was then a penniless, prospectless loafer—with a knowledge of farming. You two dear people have altered all that, and Eve has altered all my ideas about women.

Ah Sin's Analogy. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 14 January 1914

Ah Sin's Analogy. A cemetery official was one of a party which attended the funeral at Birkenhead of a Chinaman from a lo cal laundry. He evinced a great deal of interest in the curious services at the graveside, and noticed that, among other things, a roasted duck was left there by the departing mourners. Calling one of the Chinamen aside, he asked: "Why did you leave that duck on the grave? Do you think the dead man will come out and eat it?" "Yeppee," replied the laundryman; "allee samee as le white deadee man come and smellee flowlers." "Why this hush, this elaborate tip toeing about?". "'S-sli! Mother is getting ready to ask father for a litle extra money."

CHAPTER XVIII. A Conquest. I Sunday evening, and the church bell echoed over peaceful Avonflow, calling the drowsy inhabitants to wor ship. Six months had passed, and still 'Laura lived on at Mr. Laneton's, mak ing her mother's health her sole care. But' what changes those months of careful tending had wrought on that little woman, seated so comfortably amongst the cushions on a verandah chair, enjoying the freshness of the early spring evening. She wore a black silk dress and looked the lady down to the tips of her dainty toes or her soft white fingers lying now at I peace on her lap. But tier eyes, al ways restless, studied her daughter seated on the steps at her feet. "It is too dark for you to read, Laura," said she, presently. "Yes," and Laura closed the book she had been reading. The scent from a trimly-cut lucerne hedge made the air heavy with sweet ness, and bright stars peeped out in a friendly way. All was at peace. The girl, with youth's ever-ready hope, had sped back int...
