II. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 4 June 1914

A little kick, a shudder, and the ?treat Gneugeot swept rushing over :lie grass o£ the aerodrome. Traill ;eyed the snoring engine up and up. .hen, with the easy lift of an athlete alting a hurdle, the plane was off the ground. Traill's machine banked sharply, md the plane swung up in lyric cir cles en spiral. In a moment they were above the highest lace-work of trees, and before them in the clarity of che morning lay, like a pattern of jright jewellery, the valley that is .he centre of* Pomerannia. Traill hoicked his machine up luickly to avoid the down-trend of the trees, swept gently to the left, md in an instant had opened out, and they were - skimming in their ef .'ortless and irresistible rush north-, wards. . " The Baronessa leant forward from ;he passenger seat and shouted in his ear." "^Thirty-one minutes' start. Can we catch him:" " ... Traill nodded to a trembling steel finger on a dial. As the woman look ed, the finger crept round from figure to figure. Now it" was 63, no...

RUINED EYE. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 4 June 1914

RUINED EYE. Melville Davlsson Post. (From "Saturday Evening Post.") Monsieur Joncquel waited on the great terrace for the Viscount. Be low were the endless wheat fields,' crimson dotted"; "with poppies, the white road stretching away . towards Paris, and the ancient village nest ling into the hill. The chateau was almost sheer above. .One could toss a stone,from its terrace into the narrow street. The brilliant morning sun lay on the world, a vagrant wind wandering inland from the sea rippled the wheat fields into waves, and on the horizon now and then a. puff of grey dust would; spring up, and a big French limousine would crawl out like a black beetle on the white ribbon road. "Vraiment! It is wonderful-this picture!" he said. "But what Is God about, to hang it before the door of the meanest man in Europe?" ' lie was dressed for the road-a light English tweed, a grey cap and motor goggles, of which the 'big green lenses gave him the huge eyes of some poisonous insect. He removed th...

THE VALUE OF MONEY. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 4 June 1914

THE VALUE OF MONEY. Someone has said, ".Money does not make the man; but tlitnrc arc apt to be much more comfortable vT. e>. the m;in makes money." We re; d of misers who ]o"e n oney just for iii» pleasure it itfws thvm so hoard it, to handle it. ami i.o count it over: but such cases are rar». .Money is chi'iiy valued for what it cau bring, finil ii s miis foolish for a person to claim to care nothing for it. True, money alone cannot buy lie; 1th, education, friends, i.iul liauni ness; but if rightly valued and used, it caii help to fiive us all of these. Of course, th" cnvironinent, character, and habi's of a person shape liis vi"us on ail subjects. If one has seriously felt the need of money, and is o 1)liLri? d to work hard to obtain it, ho v i;l In; much more likely to know its 'iii.; value than the person to whom it lias come without any effort of his own. It is said that women as a class do not know the value of money, and are prone to spend it foolishly; A3 far as my acqua...

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 4 June 1914

KITCHEN WRINKLES. Pickles may be kept from becoming mouldy by laying a little bag of mus tard on the top of the pickle jar. Should the smell of burnt food per meate the house, immediately pu: vinegar on to boil, and tp.! odor will be counteracted. Hot water "used both intei r.aliy and externally is highly ..recommended by medical men as a cure fo*- insomnia Bathing the feet in hot water is said., to be particularly efficacious. A few drops of castor nil w:21 be found most beneficial to drooping ferns. Drop the castor oil on the roots, and soak the ferns li a pail of water all night.

LEVEL CROSSING FOR CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 4 June 1914

-LEVEL CROSSING FOR CATTLE. Cr Riggall brought forward the. question of a level crossing for stock on the north side of the trucking yards. It was the opinion of the residents that pro vision must be made for stock to cross the line to the trucking yards other than on the main road across the lino. The existing arrangement was a source of an noyance to the public. Shunting was going on sometimes for half the day, and the gates were shut against the travelling public and stock. He bad seen several lots of cattle blocked for half-an-iiour or more by trains. Mr Norman had raised an engineering diffi culty, but he (Mr Riggall) was quite sure that the engineering capabilities of the Department were not exhausted. A crossing was most urgently required. Mr Kilpatrick : Why not; bring cattle over the main bridge j at the east of the township ? | Mr Michael : A shire council by-law prohibits cattle being taken through the main streets. Mr Kilpatrick : I have not seen the correspondence in th...

STRANGE TIMEKEEPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 4 June 1914

STRANGE TIMEKEEPERS. To ascertain the time at night the Apache Indians employed a gourd on which (lie -stars of the heavens were marked. As the constellations, rose in the-sky the Indian referred io his gourd and found out the hour. By turning" the gourd around he could tell the order in which the constella tions might be expected to appear. The hill people' of Assam reckon time and distance by the number of quids of betel nuts chewed. It will be remembered how, according to Wash ington Irving, the Dutch Colonial As sembly was invariably dismissed at the last puff of the third pipe of to bacco of '.Governor Wouter Van Twil ler. ' . A-Moritagnis Indian of Canada will set up a tall stick in the snow when travelling, ahead of friends who are to follow. He marks with his foot the line of shadow ca,st, and by the change in thb angle of the shadow the oncoming party can'tell, on arriving at the spot, about how far ahead the leader is. In love-makii1.- .as in other arts, do it bes' who can...

THE AIRMAN AND THE ANARCHIST. AN AVIATOR'S MAD FLIGHT AND FIGHT FOR THE LIFE OF A KING. I. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 4 June 1914

THE AIRMAN AND THE ANARCHIST. AN AVIATOR'S MAD FLIGHT AND FIGHT FOR THE LIFE OF A KING. I. \ Three perspiring and explosive men and a woman as calmly beautiful and as regal as one of Bouguereau's Madonnas, called Frazer Traill ou\ of bed in the bitter grey of the morning. Frazer Traill had been working late into the night, putting the final touches to his monoplane for.ihe big £5000 duration flight. He was in an irritable mood. He refused to per form the ceremony of donning an ade quate costume, and, iii pyjamas and dressing gown, went down at the heels of the night-porter to tlie hotel lounge. When he looked into the calm eyes of the woman, he wished at least he had brushed his hair. The men annoyed him. They were excitable creatures, true Latin sons of the Pomerannia principality, In which they all were at that moment. They all talked together. They as saulted him with their visiting cards. From the wild and eddying cloud of their conversation Frazer Traill un derstood that they w...
