INVENTIONS BY ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 17 July 1914

INVENTIONS BY ACCIDENT. Many important inventions were merely the result of accident. Aq al chemist, experimenting in earths for the making of crucibles, found that he had invented porcelain. A watchmaker's apprentice, holding a spectacle-glass between his thumb and forefinger, noticed that through it the neighboring Jbuildings appeared larger, and thus he discovered the adaptability of the lens to the tele scope. A Nuremberg glass-cutter by acci dent one day dropped a little aqua fortis upon his spectacles. ' He found that it corroded and softened the glass, and he conceived the idea of etching. He drew figures upon the glass with varnish, applied the fluid, and cut away the glass about the drawing. When he removed the var nish the figures appeared, raised on a dark ground". The process of whitening sugar was never known until a hen walk ed through a clay-puddle and then strayed through a sugar-house. Her tracks were left in tile piles of sugar, and when it was noticed that the spo...

He Had Often Heard of Him. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 17 July 1914

He Had Often Heard of Him. It was a contested will case, and one of the witnesses, in the course of giving his evidence, described the testator minutely. . "Now, sir," said the counsel for the defence, "I suppose we may take it, from the • flattering description you have given of the testator, his good points, and his personal appearance generally, that you were intimately acquainted with him?" "Him!" exclaimed the witness. "He was no acquaintance of mine!" "Indeed! Well, then, you must have observed him very carefully whenever you saw him?" pursued counsel. "I never saw him in my life," was the reply. This prevarication, as counsel thought it, was too much, and he said: "Now, now, don't trifle with the court, please! How, I ask you, could you, in the name of goodness, de scribe, him so minutely if you never saw him or never knew him?" "Well," replied the witness, nnd the smile which overspread his features extended to the faces of those in court, "you see, I married his widow." PAT...

OPENING THE NEW CONVENT. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 17 July 1914

OPENING THE NEW CONVENT. The ceremony of opening the new convent at Leongatha took place on Sunday last, when the weather was unpropitious, and prevented some who would other wise have been present from attend ing. The church, nevertheless,was filled at 11 o'clock, the hour of morning worship, Rev. Father Malone, a popular and capable preacher, being present to deliver an appropriate address after Mass. Extensive building operations have been undertaken by the Church during the past two years, testify ing alike to the soundness of its pastorate, and the popularity of its local head — Rev. P. J. -Coyne. With the erection of the magnifi cent church but recently, the build ing which it replaced, shifted- to the far side of the Presbytery, has been converted to the purposes of u school.

Mount Best. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 17 July 1914

Mount Best Arbor Day was kept up at the local school on the 2nd inst. As there was 110 tree planting, the day was spent in pruning and otherwise trimming up the trees, shrubs, flowers, etc The garden, agricultural plot, etc., around the school reflects great credit on the h. ad teacher, Mr Cock, and the chil dren. Unfortunately, the wandering cow nuisance proves a source of annoy anc', as the other night the gate hap pened to be left unfastened and the cows played havoc with the various plots. The residents around here are grate ful to know that the Main Koads Hoard has secured a satisfactory grade as far as Mr Miller's, the steepest being 1 in 30, and that they intond going.on with the making of the road as toon as possible. Considering that the Board cannot iincl a satisfactory grade up Mount Best, the residents co:isid<r that Scnnnell's Uill should be metalled by the Council out of main tenance money granted by the board.

REMINISCENCES OF LADYSMITH. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 17 July 1914

REMINISCENCES OF LADYSMITH. Many interesting incidents relative to the siege of Ladysmith are record ed in "Campaigns of a War Correspon dent," by the late Melton Prior: — "The enemy succeeded in placing thirty-two guns 011 the heights ;:hove the town, and kept up such an inces sant fire that the troops and civilians were soon engaged in digging bomb proof shelters. In a short time they learned to distinguish the different Boer guns by their sound, and gave them amusing names. Three -of the largo ones they called 'Long Tom,' 'Puffing Billy,' and 'Weary Willie.' Then there was 'Silent Susan,' so named because the bursting of a shell was the first warning we got tliat it had been fired. "In spite of the havoc that these cannon worked, the soldiers soon grew accustomed to the shelling. One day the- Second Gordon Highlanders were playing football when a shell plumped in among, them. Fortunately, no one was hit, and they went on playing. The Boers were so interested appar ently that they...

CHAPTER XXI. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 17 July 1914

CHAPTER XXI. The commotion at Castle O'Doyle ] when Sheila did not appear can be i better imagined than described. Dear ma expected her at the end of an hour, but knowing Sheila's passion for walking, took no notice until two and even three hours had gone by. Then she gave the alarm and the entire family, including Nanny and the ser vants, got into a state of uproar. As to The O'Doyle, his voice sounded all over the great house. Every man, wo man and child was sent to search for j Miss Dan vers, and The O'Doyle aid , ed in the hunt, but there was no sign of the missing girl. The O'Doyle had the Irishman's irascible temper, and scolded everyone who came near him. Dearina, however, managed to"*a cer tain extent to calm him. !'Sheila Is the last girl in the world," she said, "to fall into the river, or sink into a bog, and who on earth would ste 1 her, daddy, for she left her purse with me before she went out, and has, I know, not a half penny on her person—nor any ormna ments either."...

KEEP FAITH WITH THE CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 17 July 1914

KEEP FAITH WITH THE CHILDREN. Many a woman who would not think of lightly breaking a promise made to a grown-up person is utterly careless about keeping her word with her children. She promises whatever is convenient at the moment, and ap parently thinks that the breaking or keeping of those promises is a matter in which she can please herself, and that her children have no right to con sider themselves aggrieved if she does not do so. A mother who acts thus does her children grievous harm. She forgets that the tense of justice is strongjn quite a Kttle child, and that it is nat ural and reasonable that he should expect his parents to be as good as their -word, and to fulfil their promi ses, even at the cost of convenience. Promises should not be lightly broken, and the parent who is guilty of this soon loses her children's confidence, which is one of the sweetest things which our little ones can give us. When boys and girls learn to doubt their parents' truthfulness they soon look ...

WOMAN'S WORLD. OLD MOTHERS. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 17 July 1914

WOMAN'S WORLD. OLD MOTHERS. I love old mothers—mothers with white hair, Aiul kindly eyes, and lips grown softly sweet With murmured blessings over sleep ing babes. There is something in their fluiet grace That speaks the calm of Sabbath afternoons; A knowledge in their deep unfaltering eyes That far outreaches all philosophy. Time, with caressing touch, about them weaves The silver-threaded fairy shawl of age, While all the echoes of forgotten songs Seem joined to lend a sweetness to their speech. Old mothers!—as they pass with slow-timed step, . , Their trembling hands cling gently to youth's strentgli; Sweet mothers! as they pass, one sees again Old garden walks, old roses, and old loves.
