SCOTT'S EPITAPH AND ITS ORIGIN. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 10 January 1914
SCOTT'S EPITAPH AND ITS ORIGIN. Perhaps the most interesting feature of the January " Life," which is . just to " hand, is a photograph and an ex planation of the origin of the epitaph which was written for the memorial cross to Captain Scott and his fellow heroes. It seems that when Captain Scott was leaving for the South Pole Dr. . Alexander Leeper, Warden of Trinity College, Melbourne, gave him as a memento a little volume of Brown ing, in which he wrote the concluding line? from Tennyson's Ulysses: "To strive, to seek, to find, but not to' yield." The little volume was dis covered in the tent with Captain Scott, and the members of the search party, considering the lines a most appro priate epitaph, 'carved them on the cross ..which stands on Observation Hili. Other interesting articles in this ex- j cellent number gro;-."The Greatest i P\\siness on Earth," in which Frederick Palmer, the war correspondent, tells how Science has robbed War of its romance; Mr. Carlyle Smythe's de s...

CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 10 January 1914
CHAPTER II. It was a charming afternoon, and the poor gentleman's lovely daughter enjoyed it with all the zest of perfect health. After the first sor row for Martin Jenkins had passed away on the crisp autumn air, she tripped along more rapidly, now warbling the snatch of some old bal lad, now stopping to pick a delicate shrub, or reaching up to pick a leaf of richer colouring than she had seen. She passed out of the oaks into | the open sunshine of the road, and that delighted her as much as the shadows of the wood had done. Every thing was a source of pleasure to Violet. She looked up laughingly at a squirrel that sat; watching her from his lofty perch ; she called a merry good-bye to a rabbit that da shad in a panic across the road in to the shelter of the woods. At the little bridge over the brook she stopped and leaned qn thfe rail, searching the dancing waters for a darting trout that had its lair under a rock there ; but the trout would not com* forth, and she started on agai...
