One never knows what U> expect, but I certainly never could have "imag ined" what actually happened to me one Sunday. It is my habit to carry the plate to "the real swells" of our suburban congregation, and upon a. certain momorable day, a ! woman dressed in the height of fashion kept me. waiting at tho end of her row, while she first removed her glove off her right hand, with great deliberation ; then fished her purse out of her pocket, extracted a shilling therefrom, gracefully put the coin in the plate, and then leisure ly helped herself to six-penn'orth of coppers as change !

She j came early one Sunday evening ! and lodged a complaint u'ith me that sho had lost her watch at the morning service, "Where were you sitting ?". . "Close by the pulpit !"

TIPPED A WINNER. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 17 July 1914
TIPPED A WINNER. 1 A deeply religious and benevolent old lady has had a rather startling experience. ' Tho other day her com-, passion was aroused by a poorly clad and wretched-looking man whom she saw passing her house. Taking a half-sovereign from her purse 'she wrapped tho coin in a piece of paper, on which sho wrote the exhortation, "Never say die." When the maid delivered the gift to tho man he thanked her, looked up at tho house, and walked away. Next day ho called and asked to see the mistress. Tho maici wad a little dubious. "It's the poor man you gavo tho half-sovereign to, ma'am, and lie won't tell me what he wants." "Is he sober ?" asked tho lady. "Yes, ma'am." "Then show liim in." When the man entered tho draw ing-room he promptly placed five pounds on tho table, remarking, "There you are, lady. It won right enough at nine to one, and you was the only person . in the road' what backed it."
THE FARM. THE INCOME-BEARING VALUE OF A SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 17 July 1914
THE FARM. THE INCOME-BEARING VALUE OB" . A SHEEP. To ascertain what a sheep will re turn annuallj to a former is not an j easy matter, for there are so many considerations involved! Tho particu j lar breed of sheep need according to the class of country and climate ; the price of.wool and of mutton ; proximity to market, etc. Wo havo all kinds of climate here. Open and well sheltered country with a mild climate will show a high lambing percentage, busbfelled farms and rough runs with a severer climato will return a- les sened and cheaper type of wool in the. former case, and a smaller lambing percentage in both-cases. In some provinces, again, quite a number o( back-country graziers make a special ity of rearing, store animals for sale, to the sheep fattening farmer of th?. richer land more adjacent to market. On the top of this there are good and bad seasons, which may easily aflect the returns. There may be said to be five kinds of Bheep farming carried on in New Zealand fl). Tbo ...

KLEPTOMANIA. STEALING FROM THE BIG STORES. REMARKABLE CASES. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 17 July 1914
KLEPTOMANIA. STEALING FROM THE BIG STORES. IlEMARKAMJC CASES. Recent eases have called attention to the prevalence of the stealing from shop counters which goes on ; among well-to-do and "respectablo" people. It is one of the most per plexing problems with which the management of a shop, especially of the. large store with many de partments, has to deal. What the financial value of the articles stolen ^amounts to in the course of the* year no large establishment can say with any certainty; but each of these has on 'the average roughly . about one case of detected theft a. day. At .Christinas, when the tempta tion and the apparent chances of immunity from detection 'are greater one shop has caught as many us 10 pilferers in *a single day ; but what proportion those who are . .caught bear to those who success fully get away with-their plunder no one can;, approximately guess. Nor is there : any limit to the curious forms in which the frailty mani fests itself. A certain well-known pee...

"No. .Mother and I were so sorry to hear of your aunt's death. Wo should have callcd to tell your father how grieved we were, but we were away at the time," said Pat. "Your mother wrote a very kind letter. My father and I have missed Aunt Elizabeth very much, hut it is better now that my. other aunt and cousin is with us," Jack replied. "A cousin ! Is he grown up ?" Jack smiled. "My cousin is a girl. My aunt is 'my. mother's youngest sister ; she was loft a widow when she was quite a girl. It is strange, but I had nevor seen her until she came to live with us. You see, my mother died when I was a little lad, and Aunt Elizabeth, my- father*s sister, camo to us. It wasn't until she died, and my father was wondering who would keep house for us, that he remembered my mother's sister. I think she had a p...

TO KILL PENNYROYAL. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 17 July 1914
TO KILL PENNYROYAL. . It is reported that a well-known Toko settler has introduced into his district an efficacious an'd inexpen sive destroyer of pcnny.-royal, a weed which, on account of its rapid spread ing habit, and the impossibility hitherto of eradicating it by grub bing,* pulling or other known means, has been a source of annoyance and loss to the settlers in many districts. ~ The cure is Cooper's or Little's, powdor dip. The means of applica tion is simply to .place, say,' a third of a packet of the powdor in a sugar bag, fasten tho bag at the end of a light pole six or eight feet in length, and shake over the patches affected by the weed until the yellow tinge of th« powder is discernible upon the leaves. A single packet will cover a very considerable area, and a boy can do tho work. 'In about a week the plants are quite brown and with out life. 1936.
Shipyard Secrets. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 17 July 1914

CHAPTER VII. A MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 17 July 1914
CHAPTER VII. A MEETING. Lunchoon was over, and Mr. Heth erlngton had retired to tho library ; he wanted to think over this strange thing that his daughter had told him. She had said that a woman named Wedmoro was living at Mount House, and with her a daughter, whom she called Meg. His child had been chris tened Margaret, and Meg was the ab breviation. Was it possible that there bad been a mistake, and were Joan and the child living ? If it was so, then Sabina was not his lawful wife ; she, the daughter of a noble man, had been living with him .while his real wife was alive, and Patricia was illegitimate. It was too awful to bo true, and for once Josh thought more of them than himself; but very soon he re membered that he would be liablo to be punished for bigamy. It would be difficult to convinco any one that he had really believed Joan was dead, and he cursed his own foolish ness in not having tried to discover where sho, was buried and see the certificate of her death. Instead of ...
