The Domestic Pet. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 6 August 1914

The Domestic Pet. The superintendent of a Sunday schoo". was illustrating for the chil dren the text, "Arise and take tho young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt." Showing them a large picture, she asked: "Now, isn't that splendid? Here is the mother, here is the young child, there's Egypt in the distance." The children, however, looked dis appointed, and finally one little bo;r piped out; "Please, teacher, where's the flea?"

VAIN DIPLOMATS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 6 August 1914

VAIN DIPLOMATS. Court life is turned inside out by H.R.H. the Infanta Euialia of Spain, aunt of King Alfonso, and she pre sents to us in "The Strand Magazine " where her memoirs are appearing, a picture of scandals, intrigues, and jeal ousies which ia astonishing. Some of her most piquant remarks are reserv ed for diplomats, whose ears must surely be tingling. In her opinion, of all men in modern Courts, the diplomat is the most ab surd. After remarking that they aro "a useless survival of the days when the relations between nations depend ed on the feelings between Sovereigns and the diplomats intrigued and flat tered to some purpose by smoothing over misunderstandings or exasperat ing offences," the Princess points out that nowadays the Court diplomat ha-3 no power, except to deliver the mes sage of his home Government. "He is not entrusted with secrets," she says, "any more than an errani boy. And he is usually stupid. If a family of position has a son who is not -iuite bright, t...

ROSSETTI AND THE SALMON. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 6 August 1914

ROSSETTI AND THE SALMON. The enthusiasm of genius leads to strange and curious happenings nt times, and the story which is told by Mr. Henry Holiday, the famous artist, about his friend Rossetti in his "Re miniscences" illustrates in an amusing manner the later's thoughtlessness when he came in contact with anything which aroused his interest. At one time Rossetti had all the en thusiasm of the beginner for collect ing china. "He dined one evening with friends who followed his lead in the matter of china, to such good pur pose that the whole dinner was served in beautiful specimens, and for tl\3 better display of these was set out on the table. The salmon was served in a noble dish, evidently a precious example. When the cover was re moved, Rossetti started, leaned over to examine the dish, took it in both hands, turned it upside down to seo the marks on the back, leaving the sal mon on the tablecloth, and exclaimed, 'The very dish I was going to get to morrow !' " The famous physic...

HOAXING THE SENATORS. The Story of a Practical Joke. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 6 August 1914

HOAXING THE SENATORS,. The Story of a Practical Joke. An amusing practical joke has just been played upon French members of Parliament by a Parisian journalist. Every Deputy or Senator is glad of~ an opportunity to bring his name be fore the notice of his constituents and no method is simpler than that o'i subscribing for the erection of a sta tue lo some dead and gone French ce lebrity who is in danger of being for gotten. Knowingthis, says the "Times " cor respondent, a clever newspaper man invented a fictitious personage named Hegesippe Simon. Therf he sent a printed circular to over a hundred De puties, inviting them to become hon orary members of the committer which was being organised to celebrate the centenary of the illustrious Hege sippe. For the benefit of those who might have forgotten this literary giant, he added a quotation from his works, "When the sun arises, tlio darkness vanishes away." The Deputies, who were unwilling to admit ignorance of the great man .r to lose...

TWO WOMEN. [' From Mrs. M. Darcy, 163 St. Leonard's-road, Ascot Vale, Vic ; • toria. " Some years ago, I began to suf fer from various liver and kidney troubles, arising no doubt from a severe cold I contracted about that time, and which nearly prostrated me. From thence on I experienced acute pain in the back and sides, and under the shoulder blades. The slightest pressure on the liver would cause me intense pain. I suffered like this for a long while without any prospect of relief, I having tried so many re medies without avail. As a last re source I decided to try a course of Warner's Safe Cure, which had been highly recommended to me by friends who had derived great benefit from taking the medicine. After taking a few bottles of Warner's Safe Cure my health improved rapidly, and I was soon effectually cured and free from all the pain and discomfort which has assailed me for so many years."

CHAPTER IX.. Along the Road. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 6 August 1914

CHAPTER IX.. Along the Road. It was done rashly and on the spur of the moment. Exactly what he was going to discover Gilray had not the faintest notion. It seemed a ridicul ous thing for a prominent Harley-st. specialist to be setting out on a wild, midnight adventure like this with no logical excuse, and no notion where the escapade might lead him. Madame Desterre had annoyed and piqued him. She had spoken of his private affairs with thinly-veiled insolence, and she had, moreover, threatened him. Who was this giddy, glittering society but terfly who ventured to pit her wits against his? He would show her that this sort of thing was not to be toler ated! Gilray's blood was up now, and he was determined to see the matter through. The more knowledge he gained the better armed would he be for the fray, if fray there was eventu ally to be. He had been' warned to make no further advances towards Enid Harley—he had been threaten ed with serious consequences if ho did so. Indeed, it seemed...

PHYSICAL ENERGY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 6 August 1914

nj: v"ih PHYSICAL ENERGY. Perhaps you do not know It, but when you walk a distance of ten miles; you expend enough force, could it all! be collected, to raise 800 tons one foot; from the ground. Of this enormous quantity of energy, the legs are re sponsible for 150 tons, the heart for 100, the lungs for twenty-two, and the bulk of the remainder is wasted in the heat given off from the body. In severe athletic competitions, such as running, rowing, and boxing, you must be in such a condition as to be' able to exert, by your limbs alone, each minute, as much force as would lift 5,0001b. one foot above the ground. "When a powerful man works fo: 24 hours with all his might, the ener i gy he expends is equal to lifting a. [third-class cruiser, and during his life he dissipates enough power to carry : his body at death to the sun. These statements may at first sight seem ex traordinary, but will not seem so when it is remembered that two ounces of bread contains the potential energy of 15...

CHAPTER VIII. The High Road of Adventure. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 6 August 1914

CHAPTER VIII. The High Road of Adventure. Here at last it appeared to Gilray was fortune holding out both hands, to Lim. He had formed a compact with Enid, showing that she was more or less under an obligation to him. It would have been a difficult matter to state precisely what that obligation was, but no doubt time would help bin- to give it some satisfactory de finition. Anyway, Enid had been desperately afraid lest he should speak,' lest he should say something thf.t might put Van der-Knoot on the track of his missing miniatures. Gil ray had certainly seen the precious pictures in the hands of Daniel Har ley. Whether they had been stolen or not it did not- in the least matter —perhaps there was some strange story atached to their appearance in the queer dock-house, some plausible explanation. Even the blackest .evi dence sometimes becomes- common place when the witnesses for the de fence enter the witness-box. What did it matter? Suppose Dan iel Harley was a thief, what then? At...
