STRANGER THAN FICTION. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Observer and Normanby Advertiser — 3 August 1914

STRANGER THAN FIBTION. (BY PETER,) An elderly lady of L.C.B. has just received a letter from her son, written from the Red Sea. The Red Sea pas sage under favourdble seasonal condi tions is a sweatsome ordeal, and many will wonder what urgert business caused an L.OBean to make the trip at a time that is -midsummer there. The maternal nurs ry was in Newry, County Down, near Turkey, or one of those disturbed countries, but the letter makes no mention of such a destina tion, except to promise to send home a sprig of shamrock in next letter. It is intended to visit Eypt and tihe Pyra mid-, Romt, Venice and other places of interest and compound interest.Much has been said rf Narrasong'e progress arid DriktDrik's prowess, but have they a bo'd adventurer making for the Bal kans, or wherever it is. But truth com. pals the-admissions that L.O.B's cru sader only passed his knickerbocker days there and has not been near it for yerrs, else he might still have been only an associate of skimmilke...

ULSTER FIFTY YEARS AGO. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Observer and Normanby Advertiser — 3 August 1914

ULSTER FIFTY YEARS AGO. (Br NEZo), Londonderry, or Derry as it is now called, was, for situation and environ ment, one of the prettiest places in Ulster. The city proper was on a hill facing Lough Foyle, and although it had many fine streets, containing good and substantial buildings on either side, the older part of the city, salled the old town, was much in the same condition as when Old Noll got knock Ing at their walls. But great alterations have since been mtade, and many of the narrow and ill built on thoroughfares hove disappeared. The walls were in a very good state of pr.servation, al though p:ainly showing the rough handling they had received from Crom well's cannon. They were wide, strc ngly built and fairly high. It would have been an easy matter to turn a buggy and pair on top. It was a most en tranciug experience to stand on the walls on a fine August evening, just as the sun was setting, your face turned towards Lough Foyle, and let your eye and mind fully enjoy the k...

L.xzon Socut. -A social, comprising it euclhie tournlanment and dance, under the auspices of the local P.LU., was held in the Free Library hall on Friday night and was a .pronounced success. Fully three lhundred persons were pre sent, and the capacity of the hall for such an occasion proved altogether in adequate. To make the most of the cc comniodationl available the stage was used to seat soeine of euchro players, leavingi the greater part of the floor free for' dancing, whllic proceededsimul taneously with the tournament. When the latter was concluded the tables were removed and the whole of the space was given over to the dancers, and even then many lhad to be content to look on when theyly doubtless would have preferred to be dancing.

ALLESTREE. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Observer and Normanby Advertiser — 3 August 1914

ALLESTREE. (From a correepondent) It is now some time since you had any correspondence from this part of the world. Well, there is not much al eration since I last wrote. The changes can be sumnmed up by saying that now two mills are at work in the fores;. Messrs. Hogan an Mr. Clay are doing good work for the supply of timber for he new pier at Portland. The old grubbed road has, at last, had a domi cile erected, just on the corner of Mr. J. H Woods' property. Mr. Young (a Tasmanian) bas purchased 72 acres of the old Hawkins' paddock. Three new chums have obtained possession of the property lately owted by Mr. William son. The land opposite to this place has also been lately sold. Allthis land is to be used for orchard purposes, and from what Mr. Young told me it excels in value for this purpose someof the land he had lately occupied in Tas mania, which was valued at from £10 to £13 per acre. This means surely progress for Portland, although. the own does not show much improvement. ...
