DRAWING HEAR TO WAR • AMERICA AND MEXICO Waashington, 21st April. War between the United States anJ Mexico appears imminent. Unless .

IV. They came in together, the Arch deacon with arms outstretched (as though his charity would embrace all the world, especially the feminine side of it), Hugh with a hunch of roses for hex'. The waiter, who had come upstairs with the message wait ed respectfully upon the landing with a delicacy which did him credit. "My dear child! God ibless'you! Surely it is not forbidden upon such an occasion—and one for the dear lad. I am happy to 'be the first upon this liappy day—the very first, is it fliot, Hugh?—well,then, I am glad. I rejoice from my very heart." He meant every word of it, a kind ly soul who loved to look out upon life through roseate windows. Leila had always known him to toe her friend, though sometimes she had doubted his courage. To-day, liis whole-hearted approbation won upon her gratitude—and.it was a real kiss that she gave him. "Ah," she said slyly, "but you did j not kiss me at Newcastle, Archdea con." He apologised for the omission handsomely.' . "My dear child, ...

GETTING TO SLEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 25 April 1914

GETTING TO SLEEP. Do your best to acquire the habit of J ?oing to sleep as soon as ever you get I into bed. Don't coax yourself by reading, or anything of that kind; but just take it for granted that you are. going to bed straight to sleep, no matter whether you are in your usual surroundings or not. You will not succeed in "popping off" immedi-" ately at first, but each time you try | it will grow easier, till at last you I will acquire a sleep habit which will I be worth a great deal to you in years to come. A rather mean man, going out to play golf.Jiad failed to come to terms with the caddie and started off carry ing the ciubs himself. After watching a stroke or two the caddie resolved to get his own back. "Here, mister," he said, "give me the clubs; I'll carry them for nothing. It's worth it to see you play."

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

III. Leila's spirit had been a little damp ed when, she drew the curtains of the bedroom and perceived that it was a rainy morning. Her hour of waking •had been that of a happy child, rob bed by sleep of every remembrance of sorrow, and called by the day to the joys of a house of mystery. Desdy still slept in the other room, his arm across his face and his hair tangled upon me pillow. She knew that the adventure of the night had tired him, and she moved as an an gel of silence about the room. Hugh had gone downstairs to talk to the parson at that time, and the waiters were laying the breafast. When one of them called her "m'lady," she start ed as though it were an impertinence. "I beg your pardon " "Will you have 'breakfast now, m'lady, or wait for Sir Hugh?" She recollected herself, and an swered very quietly: "I will wait for Sir Hugh, if you please." The man withdrew to smirk upon the landing and to kiss Anna, the chambermaid, for the relief of feel ings which embarrassed him. Le...

II. The car came over from Aberfeldy about ten next morning, and the Archdeacon sat a id the kit bags for which Hugh had telegraphed. .The meeting between the two men took place in a corner of the little conser vatory' which serves the hotel for an entresol. The day was wet, the Arch deacon said, and very windy, and he would not object to a glass of milk and 'brandy. "Well, my dear boy, and what have you done with Miss Leila?" "I have married her," said Hugh; and at that the good priest's tumbler almost slipped from his hand. He, was tenacious of tumblers, however, and he saved it. "You mean to say " "AVhat 1 say.

Leila was the first to speak, her hand upon his shoulder and his arms about her. A flush of color had come suddenly to her cheeks, and her eyes were very bright. "What have we done, dear?" she asked him. He liked to hear her pretty emphasis; and now, with the sudden realis tion that they were alone at last, he caught her to his heart and covered her lips with kisses. "My wife," he said, "my little wi£e —dearest, my own Leila—if I could tell you all that is in lriy mind to say." She withdrew her lips' from his, and bending her head she. looked him in the face, her hands upon his cheeks, and all the story of the dream written in her eyes. "A woman knows," she said; and then, "I know, dearest—nothing has ever been hidden from me. I know that you love me; I knew it the day 1 first saw you in the mountains." He laughed at th...

A Visit to Port Fairy AN IDEAL SEASIDE RESORT [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 25 April 1914

A Visit to Port Fairy AN IDEAL SEASIDE RESORT (by rambler) Having had occasion recently to pay a vi.-it to Port Fairy, I was struck with the many advuntngo^. that well-known watering-prSco has over other .seaside resorts- in the Western di^vk-* of Victoria. .Dwellers in the dry, arid districts of the Wimmera and mallee, can scarcely reali.se the opportunities that are presented for an "enjoyable holiday at the l'ort.

From the point of view of the golfer, the links offer an unrivalled propped; and visitors fivcjuontiy pronounce theui the finest summer links in the cjtate.

A WELCOME RAINFALL THIRSTY LAND VISITED. SEASON'S PROSPECTS IMPROVED. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 25 April 1914

A WELCOME RAINFALL THIRSTY LAND VISITED. SEASON'S PROSPECTS IMPROVED. For some weeks previous to Friday of last week the continued dry weather caused much anxiety to farmers as well as other mem bers of the community. During that evening, however, light rain fell for some hours, but it was somewhat patchy,because whilst an inch was registered at Nypo, only 14 points were recorded locally. At Albacutya and Yaapeet the showers totalled 50 points. Fur ther showers fell on Saturday, and these were supplemented by a steady soaking rain on Monday night, 44 points being registered at Rainbow. At Keninare 51 points fell, 45 at Albacutya, and 45 at Njpo. Further showers fell on Tuesday and Thursday, 37 points being re corded at Nypo, and '20 at Rain bow. Since the first of April 197 points of rain have been registered at Nypo. The bounteous rains will materi ally benefit the district, and as the do.vnpour was most opportune its effect will be to give aii impetus to rural pursuits and trade^e...

Socialistic Economy. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE RAINBOW ARGUS) [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 25 April 1914

f Socialistic Economy. (to tite eoitoi; of, tiu: rain now akcus) Sir, — Some time ago the Socia listic Federal Government had ■■erected 15 residences for Govern ment officials at MyiJly Point, about one mile from Darwin, at from £1500 to £'2000 each, or a total sum of £26,000. Five of these residences were to b'e occupied now, and 10 for'futnre use to keep the men on the job and have some federal money circulated in 'that dibtrict, but as the}' had no im mediate occupiers the white ants took possession and made them unfit for human occupation, - and, it is reported,' they may break down any day. These 15 ' houses, if built by open competition, would'probably have cost less than one-third of the money. The above is an example of how .the Labor Party, which calls . themselves economists, squanders the people's: money. Another report pays that three men on a Federal Govern ment job of fencing, in Darwin, put up as much as eight posts in a day. 'l hat means just putting the posts up wit...
