Gun Without Bullets. SHOOTS BLINDING GAS AND CHOKES THE VICTIM. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 18 April 1914

"Gun Without Bullets. .♦ j3h00ts blinding GAS and chokes the victim. The bujletlocs gun has at. last {ina'Je its appearance. It is a Gcr jnan invention, and, instead of bul lets, it shoots a gas which tempor arily blinds and chokes the victim. The cartridge used contains sev eral ingredients, which, when explo ed, combine to form a vapour of a peculiar character. The gun itself diners very little in appearance and piechanisiii from tho ordinary double action revolver. It holds five car tridges. The action of the vapour may best be'imagined by considering the posi tion of t)ia person shot at. The appearance of the weapon, the re port, and the flare of the powder brvmbine to convince the victim that he has been shot at with an ordinary firearui. His eyes ami mouth open in 'surprise, and the pases generated by the combination bf the chemicals envelop his head completely, penetrating his eyes and 'affecting - his'sight. For "several minutes ho is practi cally blind. ' Simultaneously the...

Quite Lively Enough. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 18 April 1914

Quite Lively Enough. seated on an empty dox 111 lrum of a log cabin in the Far West was a man cleaning a double-barrelled gun. A passing tourist stopped to chat, and asked him how far it was to the nearest neighbor's. "A trifle over two miles," he re plied. "As far as that? You must find it rather lonely here." "fto, I can't say as I do. You see. I mortgaged this claim for four hun dred dollars. And I couldn't pay, so tbey foreclosed." The stranger murmured an exclam ation of surprise. "That was two years ago, and the sheriff has been trying to get posses sion ever since. He comes twice a week, and we have a shot at each other; and at least twice a week some idiot comes along and wants to know if I ain't lonely; and then there are thieving tramps and rattlesnakes; so this life is about as exciting as I like. There comes the sheriff now. You had better lie down behind that log, and keep clear of his gun." Messrs. Stone and Co., meat sales men, Metropolitan Meat Market, Mel bourne, re...

WORDS OF WIT AND WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 18 April 1914

WORDS OF WIT AND WISDOM. Be good, but also be good for some thing. It usually costs a man something to listen to flattery. Life is not all night and conflict; morning breaks at last. Know your man before you let his opinions weigh much. Singleness of purpose is not the same thing as strength of character. To be conscious that you are ig norant is a great step to knowledge. Preaching is out and away easier than practising, but not half so ef fectual. Everything that thou reprovest in another, thou must most carefully avoid in thyself.—Cicero. A committee is a thing which takes a week to do what one good man can do in an hour. Many of the things which worry us most are trifles when we come to examine them closely. To have a respect for ourselves guides our morals and to have a de ference for others governs our man ners.—Sterne. Nine-tenths of the people who fail in life do so because they have never appreciated the value of thorough ness. Only for the cheerful does the tree ol life bl...

PRISON MASTERPIECES. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 18 April 1914

PRISON MASTERPIECES. ( Byron's famous poem, "The Prison er of Chillon,"*is supposed'to be writ ten by Bonnivard, the Genevan pa triot, whilst he was incarcerated in ibe Chateau of Chillon, on the shores of the lake. But the poem was really written at lightning speed whilst Eyron was imprisoned by inclement weather for a night and a day in the neighborhood. Nevertheless, some notable literary achievements have been really writ ten in gaol, undoubtedly the most out standing being two of the world's greatest classics, "The Adventures of Don Quixote" and "The Pilgrim's Pro gress." If only those two books had belonged to the literature of captivity they would have been sufficient to make that literature distinguished and immortal. Thomas Cooper, the Chartist, whose life reads like a romance, and whose name is held in reverence by modcfn reformers, wrote a remarkable poem whilst he was lying in prison on ac count of his political agitation. This poem bears the remarkable title of "The Pur...

"BOBS" AMONG THE BULLETS. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 18 April 1914

"BOBS" AMONG THE BULLETS. "Talk about your commanders," said Tommy Atkins, "Bobs is the boy for me. I found out what he was in Afghanistan. My company was dig ging trenches, and while finishing one the Afghans began firing, and the bul lets whistled close to our heads. "Well, there was a kid in the company that couldn't have been over IS. Never ought to have let him 'list. He was always growling and kicking, and at the first fire, down he went flat on his face, and laid there. Then along came 'Bobs,' cool and easy, and sees the kid. 'Hello, there!' says 'Bobs,' 'What's the matter, you fellow, down there? Get up and fight with your company.' 'No, I can't!' whines the kid. 'Can't,' says 'Bobs,' jumping down into the trench and .hauling the boy up. 'What's the mat ter with you that you can't? Are you hurt?' 'No, sir,' says he, 'I'm afraid of getting hit.' 'Well, you're a fine soldier!' says the general. Then he looked at the boyish face of the lad, and his face softened. 'I suppose you...

SENSATIONAL ACCIDENT CAPSIZE OF A VEHICLE. OCCUPANTS' THRILLING EXPERIENCE. ESCAPE SERIOUS INJURY. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 25 April 1914

SENSATIONAL ACCIDENT CAPSIZE OF A VEHICLE. OCCUPANTS' THRILLING EXPERIENCE. ESCAPE SERIOUS INJURY. A sensational vehicular accident, and one that might have been attended with serioue consequences, happened near the railway crossing at the southern end of Station Street, on Monday afternoon. It appears that Mr. Sam Dufty, who is in the employ of Mr. A. B. Burns, was breaking in a young horse, which had only been in harness for the second time. Seated in the brake, beside the driver, was Mr. T. McPhee. When crossing the railway line, the wheels of the vehicle striking the rails caused the horse to take fright. The animal, however, swerved and ran the conveyance against the fence, with the result that it was upset, and the occu pants were precipitated on to the road. The driver fMr. DuftyJ held firmly to the reins and the brake fell on top of him; in this position he was dragged under the seat for some distance when the horse pulled the vehicle over his prostrate form. His companion i...

II. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 25 April 1914

I A telegram .rom Bayswater that morning aad said that Madame Patty Shane would be at home at two o'clock. Hugh and Desdy were there to the minute. The house lay in a decent street of! " Westbourne-grove, and was the property of a Scotch woman who let lodgings to a limited number of "select" tenants.. This un impeachable person, spruce, in a black ! silk dress and a white cap, opened the door to . Hugh's knock and said that Madame was at home. They went up a narrow flight of stairs, and were shown into a spacious drawing-room, furnished in the fashion of fifty years ago. Here, the old lady promised 'to let Madame know immediately and withdrew. She was very proud of her "baronet," and a Scotsman, too! Desdy rather liked this room be cause of a wonderful picture of the battle of Waterloo, in which one dra goon upon a white horse cut off the head of another dragoon upon a black horse. The artist in the boy paused before a b"nch of fruit in wax, and the appetite if not the approbation w...

CHAPTER XII. Mother and Son. I. Desdy liked lie taxi-eab very much, and he quite thought, as it carried him down the Strand towards Clif ford's Inn, that he would be a motor man rather than an engine-dnver. At the same time he was still anxious about "Lally," and there had harOly been an hour since they arrived in London when he had not asked for her. "Is she in one of these houses?" was his question to Hugh. The baronet patteu his little hand and told him that he would see her very soon. "Perhaps you will see someone lse, Desdy; I'll tell you jusc now. We'll buy a ship as we go back, and 'you can sail it on the pond I shall show you. Do you remember the round pond in Kensington Gardens?" "The great big wide pond—an' the ducks. 1 remember that, Hugh. I sail ed ships there with mummy."
