WHERE IS THE BRITISH THRONE? [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 28 February 1914

WHERE 18 THE BRITI8H THRONE? Olio is so accustomod to speak about tlio "Throno" that it tieumu an absurd ity to ask where it in; and it ia co', tuinly an oinbiiiassmunt to find that the auswor is not ready to tlio lips. Aa a matter of fact it would puis/Jo tlio rlovorost man to say precisely wlioro tlio "Throno" of which lio speaks so glibly is to bo found. It is no difficult mattor to point to half-a-dozen Royal seats in England on oach of which His Majesty sits in state; it is much loss oasy to say definitely and with authority wliich of theni is roally Britain's throno. | Among tlio rival claims probably tlio strongoBt is that of. tho vonorablo oak on chair in Wostminstor Abboy, which lias soon tlio crowning of vory British Sovoroign sinco tho first Edward brought it from Scotland moro than ' six conturioa ago.

A MATTER OF WORDS. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 28 February 1914

A MATTER OF WORDS. Mr. Brown and Mr. Groen were talc ing their longed-talked-of holiday in Franco. For three months Mr. Greon had boon learning French—by corres pondence—and thought ho had master ed tho languauo. Ono afternoon tho pair went into a cafe to have tea, and Green, who al ways insisted on doing all tho talking, gave tho order to the waiter. When, however, tho tea-things woro brought he noticed that something was missing, and spoko angrily to tho waiter about it. "My dear fellow," objected Brown, "what on earth trro you saying?" "Will you kindly refrain from mak ing your absurd criticisms <Vf my use of the French- language??" retorted Green. "Oh, oortainlyl" answered Brown.

WHAT ATTRACTS A MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 28 February 1914

WHAT ATTRACTS A MAN. V What attracts a man is one thing; what will Iiuld him, and command liio rospoct, io quito another. A woman's srailo, i'or oxamplo, at tracto a mau; but an even temper re tains him. A pretty gown attracts a man; tho knowledge that it was inexpensive de lights liim. A pleasant mannor attracts a man ; brightness of intellect holds him. A knowledge of how, when, and whore to bo a littlo atately attraots a man; an appreciation of tho folly of frivolity wins his respect. A respect for tho religious beliof of ovory human being attracts a man; irroveronco in woman is to him abom inablo. A consideration for his comfort at tracts a man; a continuation of this makes him your most humble slavo. A chat in which there is no malice attracts a man; neither scandal nor evil-spoaking makes a woman seem sweet and lovely to him. A great deal of love, a great deal of sympathy, and a knowledge of how to do tho right thing in the right place, will more than attract a man, for thoy m...

A PAIR OF THEM. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 28 February 1914

A PAIR OF THEM. A young gentleman who was very fond of displaying his watch and guard and who had, moreover, a passion for attending theatres and other placc3 of amusements, was once thus ad monished by his father:— "John, my son, let me give you a bit of ad-vice. As you are so fund of attending the theatres, let me request you not to display your watch and guard so conspicuously, or you will assuredly have ere long to mourn the loss of them." Now, John, who thought himself too sharp for that, replied:— "No fear, father; I am much too wideawake for that." A few evenings after this the father, wished to accompany his son to the theatre, greatly to John's delight. Having got safely inside and taken their seats, the father said:— "Are your watch and chain all right, John?" "Of course," replied John, laugh ing. At the same time he felt in his pocket; and immediately his expres sion changed, and, looking sheepishly at his father, he stammered out: "It's gone!" '"Why," said the father, la...

He had learnt the trick of thc dining-room window —a French window, opening on to a velvety lawn', a springy, silent carpet for clumsy, limping feet.

TOO MUCH GAS. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 28 February 1914

TOO MUCH CAS. Mrs. Muggins was making splendid play with Mr. Muggins's razor-strop. Sbo was not using it in the usual way, but more as a lethal weapon, and on tho person of her son and heir. Master. Percy Muggins aroused tho whole neighbourhood with his lamenta tions; in fact, it seemed almost impos sible that one small boy could produce vso great a volume of sound. In fact, tho uproar was such that Mrs. Bug gins, from next door, was literally forc ed to poke her head over the fence and ask tho cause of it all. "The young ruffian!" panted Mrs. Muggins, resting the razor-strop for a moment. "He's gone and got about live hundred feet of gas in him, that's all!" "Fivo hundred Feet of gas? Mas he been sucking the pipe with tho tap turned on?" "No, ho hasn't,; but ho's gone and swallowed tho shilling I had put on one side for the meter—that's what ho's douet" And tho strop began again.

(All Biohts COMPLETE STORY. THE WREGK. ; BY HERBERT RUSSELL. Author of "True Blue," "The Long shoreman,1^ "My Atlantic Bride, etc. "It would be a pretty morning for a sail on the sea,' said Mrs. Chollop, clearing away the breakfast things and gazing out of the parlour win dow at the little wedge of blue water that was visible down an opposite side-street from her reasonably clean and not more than usually dear lodg ing house. "Not a bad idea, upon my woid," laid I leisurely filling my pipe. "There was a wreck on the Breaksea Reef a few days ago. Worth going out to look at Mr. Chollop was a-say ing." I took my hat and left the room. A stroll of three minutes brought me down to the beach—a long expanse of billowy shingle embraced within moss green headlands of a half-moon shaped bay with a spidery jetty sticking out nearly in the middle of it, and a little stone camber, dignified by the name of a harbor, crouching under the cliff just where the town seemed to stop abruptly. It was a f...

LADIES COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 28 February 1914

- i"' — LADIES COLUMN ' The tcrriblo accident whiah in directly caused tho death of the little pirl Alice Morris, exemplifies the danger which is in the swinging open of n railway carnage door. People riding in i ail way cara are thoughtless,—one sees it every day. The proper fastening of tho door to prevent its swinging open and doing mipchief, does not appear to tronblo tbem. If tho porter, ot great risk to bimsolf, does not race along the platform to closo an open door just as the train is moving olY, it can re main unlocked bo far as the average passenger is concerned, and it is only when a ghastly reminder r f their negligence occurs that travellers give the matter a little thought. When a porter, who rushed to closo a door far removed from where he was s anding was whirled to his death some months ago, an appoal was made to the travelling public using suburban trains, to pay a littla attention to the matter aud to spare the porter this task whenever pos sible, but it was for o...

THE SCARS. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 28 February 1914

THE SCARS. In "Twilight Tales," by Forbes Jackson, are some beautiful stories written (or children; and one of the very nicest of the tales is this: Once there was a little girl whose name was Janet; and Janet had a mother whom ' she loved and worried and said strange things to and otherwise behaved after the fashion of children. One morning Janet and her mother were together in the kitchen, and mother was busy and had her sleeves rolled up well a"bove her elbows. Suddenly Janet looked very intently at her mother's arms, and to her amazement she noticed something that she had seen before, but had never really looked at proper ly. On both her mother's arms there were scars which were red, and not at all pleasant to look at. Janet did not like them, and by-and-byo sho said so. "Mother," she asked, "what's wrong with your arms How ugly thev are!" At the words mother slopped her work and looked at Janet for a moment, and then she said, "Come to mother's knee. Mother will tell vovi why h...
