"Princess Carambo." [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 24 July 1914
"Princess Carambo." Tn April of tho year 1817, an agricultural labourer in Gloucester shire .found a young woman of prepossessing appoaranco roaming through the fields alono, friondless and destituto. Ho handed her over to the nearosfc county magistrate, a Mr. Samuel Worrall, of Knolo Hall. To this gontleraan and his family she proved a great mystery, for they could not understand her lan guage. Many learned professors of languages were called in, to try to converse with her, but none »uc-_ .ceoded. By dint of signs, howovor, she made them to understand that she came from a great personage, and that sho had been kidnapped in a dynastic plot, then carried to England, and loft on the shore in a destituto condition. England was agog with tho news. The highest in the land came to Knolo Hall to interview tho "Prin cess Cnraboo." Then, to intensify tho oxcitomont, a tramping Portu guese sailor called at Knolo Hall, pretended to interpret her lan guage. Tho girl was, ho said, un doubtedly ...
Hairbreadth Escapes in Battle. SOLDIERS WHO HAVE COURTED DEATH AND LIVED. BENEVOLENT BULLETS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 24 July 1914
Hairbreadth Escapes in . Battle. SOLDIERS WHO HAVE COURTED DEATH AND LIVED. B*ENEVOLENT BULLETS. .In one case a bullet which struck A, man on tho temple passed harm lessly over the scalp ; in anothor, a bullet struck a rib, was deflected, and, passing under the skin, found its exit on tho opposite side of tho body. But perhaps the most sin gular illustrations of the vagaries of bullets were 'furnished at the battle of Lining's Nek, from which one sol dier emerged with three bullets and only two wounds to show for them, two of the balls having en tered the samo wound. In another case a bullet, entering a soldier's left side, struck one of his ribs and re'cmcrged from tho exact spot where it had entered. But .even such bullets wero not quite as benevolent as one of which Lieutonant Worsley tells the story. .'.In. one engagement," he says, "one of. our officers got a ball in tho right erii\ which':cdmo out at«tho bade of the neck ; and though, after a painful illncsB, he recovered, yet...

Royal Walking-sticks. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 24 July 1914
Royal Walking-sticks. Tho rocenfc announcement that Andrew Jackson's heavy hickory stick has been presented to Presi dent Woodrow Wilson reminds ono that King CJeorgo inherited the 2,000 walking-sticks which bolonged to his father. King Edwurd. The collecting of walking-sticks wus his late Majesty's favourite hobby, his most treasured stick being one \vhich was regularly carried by Queen Victoria. This remarkabio stick was fashioned from a branch of the Boscobel oak which once concealed Charles IT. when escap ing . from Cromwell's soldiers. Queen Victoria had it altered somewhat, and a little idol from Seringapatam was inserted us a knob. * King Edward's collection of walk ing-sticks, of course, included nil sorts of designs. It was a fact, however, that ho preferred as . a rule an ordinary crook shape. In-' deed, his fondness for this particular design gave not a little impetus to its popularity. . Talking . of famous walking-sticks and their owners, Messrs. Henry Howell and Co., w...
Phantom Monoplane. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 24 July 1914
Phantom Monoplane.... The first air-ghost has just been encountered on Salisbury Plain by one of tho most BkilfUl of our.Amiy, uviators, who went up on a mono-'., piano on a cloudy day accompanied by-his mechanic. The aeroplane en tered tho clouds, and tho pilot was continuing his flight in them, when suddenly he discovered another mo noplane, no mo'ro than fitty. yards away, coming straight towards him out of the mist. Ho dived almost vertically, and after a headlong de scent lovelled out once more, but his rolief was only momentary. Tho other pilot must have performed exactly tho same manoeuvre, for no sooner was ho - speeding uloiiq again on a level keel than ho saw the monoplane onco. again looming out. of tho mist, heading straight towards him. Terror-struck, tho. pilot dived again, emerged below tho clouds, and forthwith landed. ' Not until then' did tho explanation strike him. Ho had fallen ' a victim to un hallucination of tho clouds fa milar to every Alpinist,. and seen -hi...
THE DAIRY. THE MECHANICAL MILKER. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 24 July 1914
THE DAIRY THE MEOHANIOAL MILKER. Inventors, have been working on the mechanical milker for years. Like every other Invention of importance there were necessarily many failures before success crowned tho efforts of the man who was able to picture in his mind a machine that .would ro lievo the dairy farmer of much of tho so-callcd drudgery of his . work.. To-day tho milking machine is a success. There arc unquestionably many, who will toll you otherwise, but the truth of the situation is demonstrated by the machines that are in practical successful operation every day in the year. The mere fact that the use of the milking machine has been discontin ued on some farms may be mislead ing. An illustration will make this clear. A dairy farmer who milks about 100 cows producing a very high closs product which tops the market in a western city installed a machine a few years ago. Tho expense in this case was,an item of considerable im portance. After using the milking machine for a/time it w...
QUEENS WHO COULD EARN THEIR OWN LIVING. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 24 July 1914
QUEENS WHO COULD EARN THEIR ' OWN LIVING. ' Apropos o£ Queen Mary's essay in l>..iu..na on ehina during her tour of the Potteries, a French contemporary remarks that most present-day queens could earn their living at a pinch. The Queen of the Belgians has taken a medical degree at Leipzig, and assisted her father, Duke Ch'arles Theodore ol Bavaria, in his practice as an oculist. Carmen . Sylva could, of course, make a good income as an author, and might obtain a post as secre tary, for in addition to her know ledge of languages, she writes short hand and is an expert tjpist. - Another versatile Sovereign is the Queen of Norway, who paints admir ably, trims hats in a style»that wonl-1 ensure her a good salary from any high-class milliner, and is a book binder of more than average s'dll. The German Empress and Quern Wilhelmina of Holland might k?»T) themselves going by painting minia tures. .Those who wish to appear wise among fools, among the wise seem foolish.

A NEW KIND OF ANIMAL. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 24 July 1914
A NEW KIND OF ANIMAL. The showman looked worried and thoughtful. His menagerie was dense ly crowded, it is true ; but how was he- to get them out, so as to make room for those waiting to pay for admission outside ? At lrn?th a good idea occurred to him. Painting up in large letters on a piece of calico : "This way to the egress," he hung it up at an angle of his show. The simple country people, think ing "egress" was some stranse new animal just added to the (collection, passed through the slit in the cur tain, and, to their amazement, found themselves outside the show. Seeing the crowd making its way to the corner where the "new animal" was. on show, everybody followed, and the outgoing stream being so great, no one, when once caught in its eddy, could turn back. Then the showman smiled, and let in those waiting to pay for admis sion outside the main entrance.
PART 5. CHAPTER VIII. THERESE. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 24 July 1914
PART 5. CHAPTER VIII. THERESE. "The Cottage" stood in a shady lane about half a mile from tbo vil lage of Old Wynthshay. It was a long, low white stone building, of a couple of Btoreys. At least, it had been white many years ago ; now it was of nondescript colour, but so covered with creepers and a luxuriant rose-tree that in the summer very little of the walls were to be seen. A good-sized flower garden surrounded it, and beyond it WAS a well-kept kitchen garden. In this house Mrs. Morris had lived from the time she took posses sion, a few weeks-after Joshua had gone to reside at the Hall. She was an excellent tenant, and lio had never had any reason to regret hav ing let it to her in such a hasty fashion ; he rather liked her, and considered her a most fascinating wo man, and he was surprised at her re maining in the quiet little village, where the country families ignored her, and the only, people who visited at the cottage were the vicar, his wife, and the doctor. Later, after t...

A BONUS EARNED. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 24 July 1914
A BONUS EARNKD. I People at sea bet on all sorts of i contingencies. An emigrant ship from .'England was recently approaching | the Australian coast, and an inter esting event was expected at anj moment in , the married people's quarters. Considerable speculation and excitement was developed over the 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 pariah children born at sea belong. "Daily Chronicle."
