Precise With a Vengeance. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 8 August 1914

Precise With a Vengeance. A colonel in a French army who had z great eye for neatness, but not much of an ear for music, took occasion one day to compliment his bandmaster on the appearance of his men. "Their uniforms are neat," said the colonel, " and their instruments are nicely polished and kept in order, but there is one improvement that I must insist upopn." " What is it, colonel ?" "You must train your men, when they perform, to lift their fingers all at exactly the same time and at regular intervals on their instruments, so-ones two I one, two !"

SOUTH AMERICAN TRAVEL. ITS TERRORS: ITS DELIGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 8 August 1914

SOUTH AMERICAN TRAVEL. ---9---- . ITS TERRORS: ITS DELIGHTS. Except for journeys round the fringe of South America, travelling there is a desperate business. No where else. surely in the world are fevers so. malignant, forests and rivers so vast. and uninhabited, and insects and snakes so murderous. More than one person has started up the Amazon, meaning to reach Peru and travel to Lima via one of the Amizon tributaries, and then by an unan:hed. railway : which he strikes some few hundred miles out side Lima; but has been turned back at Para, at the very mouth of the river, by a murderous onslaught of mosquitces, wasps, and bees of in credible size, and chigoes which per sisted in laying eggs in, the skin of his to:-s. A French traveller, who started from Guayaquil, crossed the Andes of Ecuador to the Amazon, and then descended the river, could not make up his mind which .scenery was gran der and which horrors were worse, those of the mountains or the river. The well-known ships of....

THIEVES IN BUSINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 8 August 1914

THIEVES IN BUSINESS. The Diamound-merchants of Hatton Garden are among the wealthiest traders in London, and one would as soon expect to find pickpockets in the peerage as a gang of robbers of the worst'type trading as diamond-mer chants in a dignified suite of rooma in Hatton Garden. Nevertheless, some time ago a gang of experienced criminals were in business in Hatton Garden as dia mond merchants on a considerable scale, and their reason for setting up In that particular line was that they had £704,000 worth of rough diamonds to dispose of, their entire collection having been stolen from a post-office safe in South Africa. It isn't often that criminals are so Iold as the men of 'this gang must have been, for Hatton Garden is per haps 'one of the best-policed locali ties of all London, and considerable eourage must have been necessary for them to have established them ;clves there, with no more lawful reason than that they ,had £70,000. worth of stolen diamonds which they :ished to...

THE SPOONERISMS OF Dr. SPOONER. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 8 August 1914

THE SPOONERISMS OF Dr. SPOONER. There is probably no more famous man at Oxford than Dr. Spooner, the Warden of New College, and his fame though peculiar, is likely to be last ing, for he has added to the gaiety of our nation by inventing a new form of humour, thel picturesque transportation of initial syllables. It is said that he owed the inspiration to his first nurse; but it was not till he became an Oxford don, and blandly announced at divine service that the hymn would be "Kinquering. congs their tatles tike" that his peculiar genius found full recognition, and "Spoonerisms" gave a new facet to humour. A little later he con vulsed the congregation at morning chapel by reading in the lesson of the day that, "it is easier for a camel to go through the knee of an idol," and astonished an audience of working men by asking them if they never felt "some vague yearning, some half-warmed fish, for a higher life." The undergraduates of "New" were not slow to. respond to his invitation a...

THE EAR THE SEAT OF SR; SICKNESS. Dr. uiditi Auerbach, who hias spent nine months at the University of Vii enna, has repeated his. belief that sea sickness is not due to the stomach, but to the irritation of the semiircuI~i cafial 6f the inner ear. This is the theory that has been known for some time to spee1alists, and Dr. Auerbach believes that Pro?; Dalikinik, Of the University of Vi enna, h68 proved it. The doctor says that the f)detion of the semi circular canals is to ,maintaiii the equilibrium. When they are irritated their owners have all the symptomi of sea sickness. The doctors of Vi enna found by experimenting that n child in whose ems the canals h been destroyed coald not be madr seasick, and that animals without the ear canaisi wef unaffeeted by sea3 sickness. Dieting before a voyage would not prevent sea sickness, there* fore. The doctor eaid nai kewedy ha4 been found..

Original Poetry. OUR NATION. Hail, youngest born of nations, hail ! Shrined on Australia's breast; Freedom is thine, war's crimson trail Hath never crossed thy rest. ,Arid 'neath thy warmth of Empire's smile Blest, thrice blest, is thine sun-kissed isle. - The foam-lipped'waves caress thy shores, Her portals Night unbars, Displaying, 'midst her glittering stores, The crown of Southern stars; And echoes shout from age to age, Hold fast thy peerless heritage. Thy flag by Freedom's hand unfurled, Shall wave till wars shall cease, And wisdom girds around the world Her panoply of peace. From battleships and highest crag Now proudly floats thy starry flag, Ruler of nations, Thine's the power That framed yon worlds in space, O, shield, we pray, in danger's hour; Australia's fearless race. Her shrines, her temples guard; keep free Her favoured shores from sea to sea. MoNA MARIE., The annual election of councillors for Queenscliff is fixed for August 27th, and nomination day Thurs. day next,...

There are sorrows that hang no -crape on the the door-bell, and wear no black, and bow no shut ters, and drop no tears that men can see, and can get no sympathy :save that of Christ and perhaps a colsest human brother. If you knew the inner life of many of the people you work with and do busi ness with and meet socially in the : common days, you would be very : gentle with them; you would c x use their peculiarities, their absent ;,: mindedness, their seeming thought ?tiessness at times. Grief makes :life hard for very many people. It " is a wonder they can be as genial and loving as they are, in view of the burdens that crush them.
