ADVENTURE OF A BABY BOY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 22 August 1914

DVEi TURE GF A BABY BOY. A per.on who lived some years in So,,th Africa tells the following story : The infant son of one of. the Dutch settlers had strayed away. After some time a. search-party dis covered little footprints leading in the direction of the bush. Following up these, they_ came upon a large o.:en space, at the farther side of Shich they discovered the object of their search sitting hugging a little wooden doll and munching a piece of. bread-and-butter. Before they could make their way through. the thick, tangled under growth, a large lion sprang into the clearing. The little boy, far from being frightened, ran to meet the l'on, holding up the bread-and-but ter, and said, "Take a bite, . dog gie." The father stood powerless to move or speak through fear, expect ing each instant to see the child crushed under the lion's paw ; but instead of doing as he dreaded, the lion turned himself over and lay. on his back at the child's feet, look ing up in his face as a cat would ...

Too Weak To Walk DUE TO WORM FEVER. RELIEF AFFORDED BY COMSTOCK'S "DEAD SHOT" WORM PELLETS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 22 August 1914

Too Weak To Walk DUE TO WORM FEVER. RELIEF AFFORDED BY COMSTOCK'S "DEAD SHOT" WORM PELLETS. "My little girl, now four and a half years of age, was suffering for over four yetrs'?' writes Mrs. F. ?Ab~ho. onczL'a t Weiss, of 96 Redfern - st. R e d fer-n, S y dney, N.S.W. "She appeared to have o n sumption of the bowels, and: I took her to. the hospital, where they prescr ib e-d powders which 1. gave her, but did; not seem to do any good. I then discovered she had Worm Fever, and' tried vari ous medicines, which, although they caused her to pass some worms,, only afforded temporary relief. One day I received one of your books describ ing what Comstock's 'Dead Shot' Worm Pellets had done for other children, and I stia-!ght away pro cured a. packet. After- the first dose the result was. simply marvellous, the child passing hundreds of worms. This was four months ago; I have since continued the treatment and feel sure she is. now practically rid of them. Whereas previously my daughter was...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 22 August 1914

CR THWAITVS, in reporting on the delegates' meeting in Geelong early in the month, having reference to' the maintenance of the Infectious Diseases Wards of the Geelong Hospital, mentioned that the Queenscliff Council had contri buted over £70 in two years, during which period . only one case had been sent from Queens cliff. There is little doubt that something definite will have to be done in this matter, as at present arranged the liability of our small municipality is heavily and unduly taxed. If we allow this to con tinue and unchecked and unpro tested against, the Council will one day wake up to find that there is a liability much larger than it can ever .expect to meet, facing them. Queenscliff is altogether in a different position to most other municipalities.. We have little room for increased taxation, inas much as our number of ratepayers is limited, and what with the additional cost to the Borough caused by the military use of main roads in the time of war, and in other wa...

A GOOD CATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 22 August 1914

A GOOD CATCH. The lat.st stock exchange catch is _urio"isly and strangely effective and l-ecause of the amusement it af fords is worth trying on a friend who has not yet read this. A bro ker, putting three half-crowns on the palm of his hand, says to a jobber, 'Now, Icok here, how many coins do you see ?" "Three," replies the jobber, after careful consideration. "Without casting any aspersion on your veracity," rejoins the broker, "I say there are four. . . Well, look here," he continues, re-arrang in- the coins, "'how many are there, na.w ?" "Three," stoutly declares the jobber, after assuring himself that there has been no :palming. "I say there are four," maintains- the broker. "Will you give a guinea to. the unemployed fund if I'm wrong ?". `"No, I won't ; can't afford it." "All' right," says the broker, pocketing the coins, "it's off, then." This- is naturally too much for the cur iosity of. the jobber.. "Well, go on; what's the. trick ?" he says. The. three coins are again, pr...

WHENCE THE WHISTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 22 August 1914

W HE CE THE W iSTLE. Seventy-five years ago the steam whistle, which is metaphorically shrie..ing the ears off excursion ists on holiday bent, was unknown. Tn those days engine-drivers were provided with a. small tin horn.; which they blew as occasion demand ed. Apparently, however, they did not always :low loud enough, . for in 1833, de-pite the warning blast, a train ran down a farmer's cart, and utterly destroyed one thousand eggs, a hundred pounds of butter, two horses, the vehicle, and the dri ver.. When the bill for damages was presented to the railway com pany the managing director sent for George Stephenson. Stephenson :pondered. Then he visited a musical instrument maker, with the result that he constructed. a horn which screeched most ter ribly when blown by steam. And successive generations have toned that horn down into the. familiar whistle of to-day.

A BONUS EARNED. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 29 August 1914

A BONUS EARNED. People at sea bet on all sorts of contingencies. An emigrant ship from England was recently approaching the Australian coast, and an inter esting event was expected at any moment in the married people's quarters. Considerable speculation and excitement was developed over thbe question whether the happy event would take place within or without the three-mile limit. A great cheer went up when it was announced that the little stranger was legally an Australian, and had earned the £5 baby bonus of the Commonwealth. A minute or two earlier the child would have been a native of Stepney, London, to which parish children born at sea belong. "Daily Chronicle."

DOCTOR AND PATIENT. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 29 August 1914

DOCTOR AND PATIENT. The late Dr. Cruveilhier, of Paris, was a man of unbounded liberality. One day he heard that a poor young woman, whose husband was a clerk in the War Office, had been taken ser iously ill. He went to see her, at tended her for a month, and finally brought her round. At the end cf this period he per ceived that the husband wished to ask him for his account, and for time to pay it in. ,He did not like to hurt the young man's feelings, and, noticing an Algerian carpet in the room, worth about fifteen francs, he exclaimed : '"What a lovely piece of carpet you have got there !" "Ah ! doctor," said the husband, "if you think you would like to have it-" "I should indeed, very much like to have it. Look here, we will make a bargain. You owe me two hundred francs for my visits. Your carpet is worth three hundred. Here are a hundred francs, and I'll take it with me." And he left, glad to have done the poor people a kindness without wounding their pride.

A PUGILISTIC CABBY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 29 August 1914

A PUGILISTIC CABBY. Mr. 'Grant Allen used to tell of an amusing experience with a London cab-driver. After leaving his publisher's, he hired a cab to drive to a brother novelist. On arriving at his destination he tendered the cabby four shillings, which was a little over the proper fare. The driver, however, was not satisfied, and wanted six shillings. Grant Al len refused to pay more, whereupon the driver offered to fight him for it. Allen, who knew as much about the art of self-defence as the man in the moon, was rather taken back at the man's request; however, he agreed, saying. "The very thing, my friend will hold the money and act as refe ree, so come along." Cabby got down and followed him into the gar den. Allen then placed the six shil Lings into his friend's hand, took off his coat, rolled up his shirt-sleeves all with an air of cheerful alacrity, and bade the man come on. His anxiety was intense, but it relaxed as he watched the cabman's face, shewing doubt, -surprise, and...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 29 August 1914

GRANiTED that the Heads is now viewed by the Military authorities as most important and necessary for defence-as amply demonstra ted during the past few weeks and combining that fact with the necessity of fully putting into use the roads of the Borough for the conveyance of stores, gunnery, and so forth, it should follow as a matter of course that provision will be made by Government for the maintenance of these roads and for other privileges which rate payers have for years borne the sole upkeep. There is no doubt that' if the Borough had not made the. -present roads which lead to forts and camps, the Government would have been under the neces sity of making roads themselves. Here is an instance of a munici pality. unwittingly' preparing the wherewithal for defence; in their desire to benefit ratepayers. Not alone, in tie present instance, has the Defence Department benefited by having roads prepared, but the fences and other safeguards to the foreshores have been usurped and destr...

WHAT THE NIGGER THOUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 29 August 1914

WHAT THE NIGGER THOUGHT. Admiral De Horsey is an excellent raconteur,- and from out of his fund of anecdote, does not hesitate to bring forth a story against himself, if it be a good one. The follow ing is one of the best, especially when told by the Admiral himself. It was when he was Commodore in the West Indies, and his ship lying in Port Royal harbour, Jamaica. One night he went ashore to dine with the Governor at Kingston, but forget to learn the password for the night. Returning on board after dinner, he was stopped at the dock yard gates by a sentry of the West India Regiment. "Who go dar ?" demanded the black warrior, bringing ahis bayonet to the charge. "A friend," came the reply out of the dark. "Wal, Massa Frien', what am de countersign ?" "That's all right, you know me," said the Commodore. "Me know nobody no got dat countersign," and he brought his bayonet perilously near the officer. "You no can pass h'yar." "But I am Commodore De Hor sey." The nigger broke into a broa...

FEDERAL ELECTION. MR KENDELL AND THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 29 August 1914

FEDERAL ELECTION. MR KENDELL AND THE WAR. A meeting of electors was held in the Town Hall on Saturday even ing last, when Mr Kendell, Liberal candidate for Corio, delivered his policy speech. The attendance was small owing to the incon venient night, everybody being otherwise engaged either at business or war duties. Cr T. Arkins pre sided, and in introducing the speaker, apologised for the absence of Mayor Dewar, and regretted the small attendance. Mr Kendell spoke lengthily in re ference to the present war which he trusted would have an early ter mination. There was a part of the German fleet which was. not ac counted for at the present time, and it was our duty to be prepared. 'We could scarcely blame the defence and military authorities for the action they had taken and which so much: affected this town. It was a painifu! subject, but a splendid experience would be gained. It was the least the Government could do to grant the assistance it had to the mother country, which had he...

A MAN WHO WAS HANGED. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 29 August 1914

A MAN WHO WAS HARIGED. It was the custom in the good old days, especially in Ireland, to hang condemned men for half an hour, and then hand them over to their friends. A man named Mahoney was hanged in this way. At the end of half an hour his body was given to his friends, who put him in a coffin they had brought with them, and galloped off with him on a cart. But, before they were out of sight of the gallows authorities, the corpse in the exuberance of his joy sat up in the coffin and shouted "Hooroo !" A "pall," terrified, lest, his exhibition of vitality should cause the execu tioner to come after them, hit the hanged man playfully on the head with his stick, remarking, "Kape quiet, ye divil." The sileacing was so effectual that the victim of it never woke again, but was well and truly waked that same evening. There was no doubt that the blow on the head had killed him. The facts came to the knowledge of the authorities, and a justice .was ap pealed to for a warrant for the cul p...
