HISTORIC STAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 April 1914
HISTORIC STAINS. ?Visitors to the famous castle of Wartburg, in Germany, are always very carefully shown a big black patch upon the wall. The room where this stain upon the wall is shown was occupied &lt;by Martin Luther when he was a prisoner-in this castle, and here he commenced his famous trans lation of the Bible. The tradition is that Satan appeared to liim in this room in order to make certain plaus ible suggestions to the great Reform er. His reply was to take up his ink stand and throw it at his visitor's head. It crashed against the wall, leaving a stain which has been rever ently preserved ever since. Undoubtedly the most interesting room in Scotland is the pleeping chamber of Mary Queen of Scots, in the Palace of Holyrood, which still stands as it was when she occupied it. The walls are hung with tapestry, and half-covered by it is a small door leading to Queen Mary's secret stair. It was by this secret stair in the year 1566 that the assassins of the Queen's Ital...
BLACKIE'S SYMPATHY. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 April 1914
BLACK! E'S SYMPATHY. . A delightful story is told of the grand old professor or WHOM Edm jurgh is so proud. Professor Blackie was lecturing tc &lt;i new class with whose personnel he .VHS very imperfectly acquainted. In answer to some direction given by the eoiurer, a siudent rose to road a paragraph, his book in his left hand. "Sir!" thundered Blackie, "hold /cur book in your right hand." And :is the student would have spoken, 'No words, sir! Your right hand, I ?ay V Tne student held up his right arm, aiding piicously at the stump of its ?vrisi. "Sir, I has nae richt hand,".he said, iir.1 his voice was unsteady. Before Blackie could open U:s lips, :here arose from the class such a tei .ific storm of hisses as one perhaps must go to Edinburgh to hear, and by t his voice was overborne as by a wild sea. Then the professor left his place and went down to the student he had unwittingly so hurt. He put his arm about the lad's shoulders and drew aim close, and the lad leaned up ag...
A Fishy Story. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 April 1914
A Fishy Story. Ill our town at home was a pomp ous "self-made" man who was wont to boast of liis affluence. Two compan ions were one day discussing his merits and demerits. "Yes," said tlie first, "he is 'a big fish' now, surely enough!" "True," said the other, "but like many big fish, ho began life on a 'small scale'!" It is curious that a man and a girl who have found room in the same chair before they marry often find there is scarcely room for them in the same house after they are mar ried. Every man of sound brain whom you meet knows something worth knowing better than yourself. If you have built castles in the air your labor need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put .the foundations under them. Ho that would govern his actions by the laws of virtue must regulate his thoughts by those of reason. Maude: "She's such a quiet little person that I'm surprised to hear she's wearing a diaphanous skirt." Edna: "Perhaps she believes in the old saying that little girls shou...
TOO LATE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 April 1914
TOO LATE. On either side of a desk in a Lpn don oflice sat a man and woman clerk. As tlie man put it, tliey "got on well together." Once, indeed, ho confided to a friend that he ratlier believed the lady "quite liked him." But he be came -engaged to another, and one day, when he unexpectedly announced that, to improve his position aud get married, he was taking a fresh situ ation, the lady clerk went home early, "with a headache." The man did marry-the wrong woman. Ere long he had to sink all his sav ings in divorce proceedings, and, sad der and wiser, he thought of a scheme for happiness. In his old firm there was a vacancy; he would apply for it, and-for now he knew her worth would woo and marry the lady clerk. The situation he obtained. Before time on Monday morning he was back in the familiar oflice. Per haps she would be there early, too! He found a smart stranger before him, a clerk who volunteered: "I ex pect we shall .be a bit glumlike to day. We all attended our late lady c...
A SHREWD MANDARIN. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 April 1914
A SHREWD MANDARIN. A Governor of a Chinese province was taken very ill, and refused to ad mit any visitors into his house. This being told to a mandarin of his ac quaintance, the latter was very much concerned, and after many importun ities, obtained an interview with him. On his entrance, he was surprised to find no signs of sickness in his friend, and asked what was the matter with him. The Governor at length told him that he had lost the Emperor's seal out of the cabinet where it used to be kept, and that as the lock remained ?uninjured he was sensible that the seal was stolen. Of course, he could transact no 'business, and must soon be deprived of his government, and proba'bly also of his life. The mandarin inquired if he had any enemy in the city. The other an answered "Yes," and that that enemy was an officer, of rank whom lie had offended, and who was disposed to do him an injury. "Away, then," replied the mandar in; "let your valuable goods be se cretly removed this evening,...
The Express. THURSDAY, APRIL 30, 1916, Dookie Devenish Railway. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 April 1914
The Express THURSDAY, APRIL 30, 1916, Dookie- Devenish Railway. THE influential deputation that waited upon the Premier and the Minister for Railways on Wednesday of last week in connection with the Dookie- Devenish railway connection and the granting of certain privileges to the Shepparton Freezing Works met with a fair reception. The in- ception of the latter industry is chiefly responsible for the renewed interest that is being taken in connecting the Dookie with the Yarrawonga line. When the construction of the line from Shepparton to Dookie was mooted some years ago, the question of its continu- ance to a junction on the Yarrawonga line, was discussed. Definite action &nbsp; was, however, waived by the late Mr Speight (Chief Commissioner of Rail- ways), as the deputation was divided &nbsp; as to the most suitable place for the connection. Parochial interests have now been set aside, and those inter- ested are unanimous in the opinion that the lines should be lin...

Laconic Letters. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 7 May 1914
Laconic Letters. Victor Hugo, the great French poet and novelist, could be very lengthy at times, but lie knew how to be laconic nlso. "Les Miserables" liad just issued from the press; and Hugo, who was in the Channel Is lands, was anxious to learn how it was selling. .Being desperately busy, lie contented himself with inscribing the noic of interrogation on a postcard-" ? "-expecting that his publisher -would give him a full ac count of sales. But the publinher gave tit-for-tat, the reply coining back simply " ! " Disraeli could be brief and bitter, but he could-also be brief and diplo "matic. A bore who claimed nc 'quaintance with him perpetrated n book, and straightway sent a copy to the statesman, hoping to get a criticism from him which would boom it wi'ih the public. He was, however, quite u^ible to determine - whether the reply was a compli ment, or an insult. It simply said, "I shall waste no time in rending the book which you have so kindly sent inc." , A model of brief cor...

II. The sun glared down upon the dig gers as they bent to their arduous task. As the day advanced, the heat became almost unbearable. With parched throat and burning limbs the boy stuck doggedly to his work; but at length he was compelled to let fall his shovel, and sink exhausted on the stump of a tree. Sweat poured from his forehead; his eyes were like balls of fire. Jim camc over to him, and said: "What's your name, youngster?" "Sydney Wood," replied the boy. "Well, Sydney," continued Jim, "it seems to me that you've took on more than you can manage. I brought you along just to Uumor you; but I knew all along that-the work would prove too much for you. I'm not go I ing to say that you haven't the pluck 1 -it's the strength you lack. Now, I've just been wondering if we couldn't turn you into a cook." "A cook?" gasped Sydney. ?

nr. "Is it true? Is your name Maggie Griffiths?" asked Jim, hoarsely, when he had recovered in some measure from the shock occasioned l>y Ella's startling words. "Yes, it is true," replied the girl, hanging her head in shame. "Can you ever forgive me for having de ceived you? I hated to come here ui.der false pretences; but it was the only way to escape detection." "How have you found out tlife truth about her?" asked Jim. turning to Ella. "Easy enough," replied Ella. "I've liiul my eyes 011 her since first she came, and yesterday I got hold of a Melbourne newspaper dated two months back. In it was a picture of this girl, and a full account of what she was wanted for. It seems she was with this fellow David Walton as his secretary, and got thick with his nephew. Finding' out. that the old man had made a will in his nephew Arthur's favor, she coolly poisoned the old man, intending to make up to Arthur, and collar the brass. She worked it so -as one of the servants should be suspec...
