ANIMALS' SPEED. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 2 April 1914
ANIMALS' SPEED. No animal is knvn to have exceed ed the speed attained by the horse. Instantaneous photographs of one fa mous specimen showed the full length orf one complete stride of about 26ft. In the stride of the fastest racers the hindquarters and limbs are raised con elderably higher than the shoulders, and from this relatively great height brought downward and forward, .w!de ly separated from each other, to avoid striking, the forelegs. The hare has not in reality the speed of the dog. The dog. on the other hand, does not attain the speed of the horse. The giraffe is said to run at the rate of fif teen yards per second under the -most favorable conditions.
Gone Again. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 2 April 1914
Gone Again. At a certain public school it was the custom for the teachers to write on the blackboard any instruction they desired the caretaker to receive. One evening, while cleaning a room, the caretaker saw written: "Find the greatest common denomi nator." "Hullo!" she exclaimed. "Is that darned thing lost again." The April number of "The Story teller" Magazine is just in. The read er of this One monthly gets splendid reading. The authors' names are a guarantee of great excellence. Jus tus Miles Forman, Mrs. Daillli Rey nolds, Warwick Deeping. I. A. I. Wy lie, Captain Shaw, J. O. Curwood write in this number. These authors could not write poorly if they tried, and it seems as though they are at their best in this number. Besides the above writers II. do Vere Stac poole, author of "The Blue Lagoon," writes a long complete novel entitled "The Presentation." With all these attractions, it is no wonder that the "Storyteller" Is so great a favorite with magfzine readers.

Crossed the Bar. General regret was expressed in Casn terton when it was learned that Norab, the wife of Mr F. WV. Burgess, of Chetwynd, had passed away. During last winter, AMrs Burgess suffered from a severe attack of museular rheumatism, from which she recovered, but left her heart in a weak state, and eventually caused her death, which occurred at the Casterton Hospital this morning, at the age of 35 years. The deceased, who leaves three sons, the eldest eighteen years of age, was the, daughter of AMrs and the late Mr John Heenan, and was born at Sandford, from whence she removed to Chetwynd about 30 years ago, where she has since re sided.

THE FISHERMAN AT HOME. Dear father took a fishing trip. He has rheumatic pains And various symptom.. of the grip. He never once complains. For life at present seems to hold ' All Joy that he could wish. 'He nearly caught a fish. He doesn't mind a little cold. He tells about it while we stand And stare with wondering eyes. It nearly chewed off father's hand, So fearful was its slse. It winked at him and tried to-sing, SAnd waved a fin in play. It did a hornpipe and a fing And then it 'swam away. In museums .have stood around And viewed the monsters o'er. Which in the ages past were found Disporting 'near the shore. These curious creatures are for me • With scant importance fraught; But, oh, the fish I long to see That ,father nearly caught!

WRITTEN IN RINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 2 April 1914
WRITTEN IN RINKLES. Nothing Is more damaging to beauty in woman than w'orry. The worrying woman invites the hand of time to write plenty of wrrinkles on her -brow. and round her eyes and mouth; to tint her face yellow, and give dullness td the eye that no artifice can brighten. Worrying, moreover, is quite unneces sary, and is a total waste of energy which could be employed In doing something useful. Everyone knows thue worrying woman the moment they see her. lier character is written in her face In wrinkles which apparently nothing short of a miracle could obh literate.
WRECKERS OF MEN AND NATIONS. The Smile and the Wile of Woman. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 2 April 1914
WRECKERS OF MEN AND NATIONS. The Smile and the Wile of Woman. Empires have -fallen before the wiles of woman. Rome sang of the achievements of Antony. Antony look ed into'the eyes of Cleopatra and laid down honor and life. Louis XV. dallied with the.Pompa dour and Du Barry until his kingdom tottered. Tile royal roue died and left his grandson and heir a heritage of death. Mlary Stuart played at love with many men until she lost her throne and at last her head. These women have been. the lure that led men to destruction. They baffled scientists and sociologists. By all the rules of the game they should have been wholly creatures of evil. Some were, but that others of them were warm-hmorted, impulsive and bec witching to good and bad people alike is a puzzle to allenists. When -face to face with the lives of these wreckers of the world, scientists hold up their hands, shake their heads and say: "We cannot tell you about it-may be some day we can. but not oow: it is too much to expect ...
