A BOTANICAL CURIOSITY. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 13 May 1914
A BOTANICAU CURI08ITY. It is time we should learn more about that -wonderful invention of Dame Nature known as the Venus fly-trap, which, in the United States, finds its home mainly in the swamps near Wilmington, North Carolina. A specimen transplanted into moss and "rich earth will thrive in the house if kept very moist, and it makes the best kind of fly-trap, for it is always on duty and looks after Itself. As the older traps lose their vitality fresh shoots appear and new traps are de veloped. The Venus fly-trap is regarded as one of the greatest wonders of the plant world, for it seems to exercise a discrimination of taste that is more than human. It is provided with three delicate hair-triggers, and it exudes a sort of honey-dew that attracts the flies. Woe to the fly, however, that touches one of the triggers, for, quick as a flash, the two heavy leaves of the trap close upon the victim and crush it, much the same as an ordinary steel trap acts. There is 110 escape for the fly...

Not very long ago Mr. Rockefeller was talking to a group of New York business men* all of them million aires, but none of them American born. ^ "After all," Mr. Rockefeller remark ed, "when one comes to look at it, you fellows are only intruders.

RED BOTTLES FOR MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 13 May 1914
RED BOTTLES FOR MILK. It Is well known that colore have different effects upon health. Soma colore may soothe-green, for in stance-and others, like yellow, do, the very opposite. / The most remarkable of all colors, however, is red, which la noted for itg healing qualities. Red has always 'been a color that has "made itself felt," as the saying goes. Since good ness knows when, the Chinese have dressed those who are suffering from smallpox in carmine-colored clothes, and the people of Tongkin actually paint any children who catch measles red. Nor does China stand alone in this respect. The Spaniards make a point not only of attiring victims of measles in "a red "shirt," but also of feeding them with red eyrup. Sensitive children should have their nursery wall© covered with pa per in which the main color is orange, while red light Is moBt helpful In some cases of skin disease. Red is not only- good for human be ings, but it also acts as a preservative of milk. The'i>eople of Holla...
THE OUFACTOBY NERVE OF INSECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 13 May 1914
THE OUFACTOBY NERVE Og IN8ECT8. A great number of facts of the life 01 Insects can hardly be explained ex cepting by admitting a particularly powerful olfactory sense in these ani mals. The examples are numerous; if, in an ant-hill, an ant of the same species as those that inhabit it, but belonging to another swarm, tries to penetrate, it will immediately be ex pelled. Sometimes the hypothesis bas been supposed of a sort of lan guage allowing each individual to make itself known, but deafness is general in the class of Insects, and ants in particular are absolutely deaf. Pc then there only remains the odor special to each swarm which appears to constitute a mode of identification. In the same way, when the corpse of a small mammiferous animal is be coming decomposed in a field, a legion of sylphs and necrophors, strangers to the immediate neighborhood, com ing sometimes from a distance o several kilometres, arrive to lay thei eggs there, guided, it would seen, merely by their sense ...

The Reason. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 13 May 1914
The Reason. A little girl of seven or eight yeara stood one day before a closed gate. A gentleman passed slowly. The little girl turned and said to him: "Will you please open this gate for me?" The gentleman did so. Then he said kindly: "Why, my child, couldn't you open the gate for yourself?" "Because," said the little girl, "the paint's not dry yet." "Why do you consider women su perior to men in Intelligence?" "A bald-headed man buys hair re storer (by the quart, doesn't he?" "Er-yes." "Well, a woman doesn't waste time on hair restorer; she buys hair." "There have been times in my life," said he gloomily, "when I was tempt ed to commit suicide." "Oh, well,'" she said, "it's no use to grieve over the past. We can all look back and see where we've made mistakes." As a young man passed along the street a resident remarked to a visi tor: "That is one of our ab'est finan ciers." "Why, I am astonished," was the re ply. "1-Ie doesn't look to be aver twenty-five."

CHAPTER VI. , When Mrs. Bellairs met her son he nad contrived to smarten himself up . and looked much less wild and shabby than on the previous day. She made him join her In the tonneau of her motor-car, and there she slipped the ?snbney into his hand. His face lit up with an amazing joy. "Oh! mother, you are a briclc!" he exclaimed. "Is it as much as I asked for, mother?" ^ "Yes, Ralph; there are fifteen hun dred pounds In notes in that bundle." "Moth!" exclaimed the young man, "you really are a wonder! How ever did you get it?" Mrs. Bellairs became very white. Don't ask me, Ralph. I can never tell you-never. This is a secret be tween you and me." "Does my stepfather know?" "No, Ralph; and you must never breathe the subject to him. If you do- you will kill me. As it is, I have been almost killed. I neve...
CHAPTER VII. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 13 May 1914
CHAPTER VII. Bellairs was essentially a man of action. That very night he saw Ro bert Holman, one of the leading pri vate detectives in London, and placed in his hands the inquiry into the af fair, of Goldstein and Sheila's pearls, assuring him that he, Bellairs, would pay the £2000 on the day the pearls werfc brought back to him uninjured; but he was careful to caution Mr. (Holman that an expert in precious etones must examine them in order to see that no exchanges had been made. Holman undertook the jab, and ex ecuted It with great dexterity, and Bellairs had the satisfaction of re covering Sheila's pearls at the loss of £2000, which he had been saving to wards his wife's future needs. He jrut them back carefully into his safe, and then set Holman to discover .where Ralph was hiding. The miser able youth waa found without much difficulty; and brought (back to Sunny .side by Holman, who, however, by the K.C.'s request, refused even to leave the room in which Ralph was seated until ...
GREENBACKS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 13 May 1914
GREENBACKS. Few people, perhaps, are aware why the national American currency is printed with green backs. Ever since the adoption of paper currency it has been the constant study o£ bank-note engravers to get up some plan of printing bills that could not be coun terfeited. In this they only partly "Bucceeded till as late as 1857, when a man named Stacy J. Edson Invented "a kind of green ink, which he patent ed June 30 of that year. It is called anti-photographic ink, because it can not be photographed and cannot be dislodged with alkalies by counterfei ters to get a complete facsimile of the bills. As it is a secret known only to the American Bank Note Com pany and the inventor, it is impossible to counterfeit the greenback money. Even if the composition of the ink was known, it would be of no use, as the work could not be copied from the genuine bills with any other kind of ink.

Handicapped. Saxe, the American poet, was once taking a trip on a steamer, when he fell in with a lovely young lady to whom he made himself very agree able. Of course, he made an impres sion upon the damsel, who said at parting-"Good-bye, Mr. Saxe, I fear you will soon be forgetting me." "Well, my dear young lady," said the inveterate punster, "if I was not a married man already, you may rest assured I'd be for getting you."

No More Questions Asked. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 13 May 1914
More) Questions Asked. The inhabitants of a certain county in England-we will not specify which -are especially distinguished by an inordinate desire to become familiar with details of the private concerns of everyone with whom they come in to contact. Recently a stranger journeyed into a village in this county known aB Mireville, entered the local inn, or dered refreshment, and sat down. "Staying here, sir?" asked the land lord. A brief nod was the reply. "Business good, sir?" "I don't know what to make of it," said the stranger. And then the usual angling for in formation began, till at last came the point-blank question: "What is your (business, may I ask, sir?" The stranger rose, looked carefully around, and put his lips to the ears of the landlord. "I'm an Anarchist!" he said. "Wh-a-t!" said the startled land lord, "one of them that coom fra Rus sia?" "Aye," said the stranger; "and three days ago I was brought before the Tsar, who gave me the choice of Siberia or Mireville. I w...

"How would you | like to have a dog named after you?" ( "Why, that's nothing," said Tom, airily. "Half the cats in the country are named after me."
CRANKS WHO HIDE MONEY. Bank-notes Concealed in Books! [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 13 May 1914
CRANKS WHO HIDE MONEY. Bank-notes Concealed in Books! Among the eccentricities of the rich, the passion for always possessing enormous sums of ready cash is sure ly one of the most extraordinary. A former Lord Dysart one day asked a companion-nurse to go to town and get a cheque cashed for him at the Bank of England. When she was ready to start the old peer sat down and wrote a cheque for £100,000, and told her to he sure and see that she got one note for the whole amount. The cheque was duly presented, and the Bank, having satisfied themselves fis to the nurse's authority for making such a request, suggested that a clerk should accompany her and hand the £100,000 note in person to his lordship. After having done so the clerk told the peer that only three such notes were in existence. "One," he said, "we have at the Bank, an other I have just handed to your lord ship, and the third, which some time ago disappeared from circulation, we 1 have never been able to trace." "Per | haps I ...
WHEN YOU NEED A GOOD REST. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 13 May 1914
WHEN YOU NEED A GOOD REST* By n Iloajutul Nurso. Ordinary fiiuing in a chair or lying ?cm.the boI'iv arc not by any iiieuiis tbo most restful positions you can adopt, for, though they ease certain parts of the body, they leave others just as strained and tired as ever. Perhaps you may not know the val ue of putting your feet up as high as they will comfortably go. It is not elegant, I know, to sit with your feet on the table or the mantelpiece, but it Is most restful and good for you, so you may just as . ell do It when you are alone. A doctor once told me that he was Constantly Impressing this "feet-up" treatment on girls whose work made it necessary for them to stand about a great deal-shop assistants, teach ers, and so on. "Get your feet up aB high as your head whenever you pos sibly can," he ordered. His patients used to think this very strange at first, but they quickly realised what a wonderful relief It gavo to aching feet and tired legs. Another very "comfy," though not exac...

A toarder who had been there for some time, be cause h6 could not get away, was standing in the hall when the landlord rang the dinner-bell. Whereupon an old dog that was lying outside on a rug commenced to howl mournfully. The boarder watched him a little while, anjl then said "What on earth are you howling for? You don't have to eat it!" Popularity depends on how well you treat your friends/ and how often.
The Worm Turned. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 13 May 1914
The Worm Turned. The other day Sir Gilbert Parker, M.P., referring to Lord Rosebery'e re mark that "most (books in. a library ought to be burned," told of a lively exchange of compliments ihe once had with a publisher. Sir Gilbert had been pointing out that in many cases, owing to the in ability of literary men to look after themselves, publishers made far more money out of books than their authors did. The publisher remarked that what Lord Rosebery should have said was that, "It was not most books, but most authors who should be burned." "That may be true," retorted Sir Gilbert, "but judging from the pub lishers' share of the profits of the au thors' labors, most of the authors were too green to be burned!"

In spile of many denials, it is : evident that the objective of labor organisers is to make the remuneration of unskilled labor equal to that of skilled labor. The claim of 1/9 per hour for wharf-lumping, allowed by Mr Justice Higgins, is a plain indi cation of the nature of their de- ! mands. Unskilled laborers are more numerous than skilled : workers. They have votes, and they are being taught to use them for the purpose of reducing all workers to a dead uniform level so far as the wages they receive are concerned. Efficiency, natural aptitude, industry-these are discounted by syndicalism. ; It would give the same reward : to the lazy, inefficient,...
