One for the Butcher. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 20 May 1914
One for the Butcher. A candidate at one of the recent byrelectlons was subjected to much In terruption by a butcher, who enjoyed considerable notoriety as a "heckler." The candidate bore the thing good humoredly for a time, but at last he gave his questioner a hint that he was taking up valuable time by ask* ing silly questions. This so enraged the butcher' that he shouted out: "II, I had the candidate in my sau sage machine I'd make mincemeat of him." ~ 1 The candidate calmly retorted: "Ib thy servant a dog that thou ehouldst do this thing?" And nothing more was heard of the butcher.
AN INGENIOUS MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 20 May 1914
INGENIOUS MACHINE. A few years ago the South Austra lian Government offered a prize for the invention of a stone-gathering machine to be used on some of the barren lands that It was desired to render available for cultivation. The first competition was abortive, for no machines were entered. A.gain the prize was offered, but the two or three machines that were entered failed to do the work. Now, however, we learn (says "The Ilardwareman".) that two Australians have invented an im proved rake and stone gatherer for clearing stony land. The new idea was given a public trial recently, and did its work very successfully. T'le rake, which is triangular in shape, and works in snake fashion, leases the stones in a straight row. It is followed by the stone gatherer, which consists of a large wheel, which picks up all the stones, large and small, and deposits them in the dray which runs alongside. The land was too stony to use for agricultural purposes previous to the trial, and yet, after t...

LAUGHTER AND LONG LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 20 May 1914
LAUGHTER AND LONG LIFE. It may be (observes the "Lancet") that some enthusiastic and laborious German statistician has already ac cumulated figures bearing upon the question of length of life and its rela tion to the enjoyment thereof; if so, we are unacquainted with his results, and yet have a very decided notion that people who enjoy life-cheerful people-are also those to whom long est life is given, commonplace though this sounds, there is no truth more commonly ignored in actual every-day existence. "Oh, yes, of course, worry shortens life, and the contented peo ple live to be old!" we are all ready to say; and yet how many people re cognise the duty of cheerfulness? Most persons will declare that if a man is not naturally cheerful he can not make himself so. Yet this is far from being the case, and there is many a man who is at present a weary 'burden to his relatives, miser able through the carking care cf some bodily ailment perhaps, or some worldly misfortune, who, If he had...
The Wretch. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 20 May 1914
The Wretch. "I suppose, Jane, you couldn't think of going to the matinee in that shabby old hat?" "Oh! you dear man. How thought ful you are. I really couldn't think, of it." "Yes! Just what I thought, so I only bought, one ticket." The Suffragettes at Glasgow are causing some trouble by chalking on the pavements. Well, there is satis faction in knowing that they still stand by the old flag. Time was when there were no look ing-glasses. In those days men grew long beards and women wore th-nr hair flowing. When the looking-glass came men shaved themselves to dis cover what they were like; itnd then it was that women began, to worry whether their hats were on straight. There has never been a problem that has caused such waste of time or so much distraction ais this question of the straight hat. Some women like children, some like charltieB, and .some like men. The only art worth studying in life Is that of taking nobody too serious ly.

Too Weak. Smith is a lover of coffee, and un .less It is both strong and good the waiter .at restaurant or. hotel soon hears from him. 'Recently he went into a restaurant for dinner.

NAPOLEON AND SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 20 May 1914
NAPOLEON AND SCIENCE. We think of Napoleon as the great Lord of War, the butcher of human lives, the builder of a great empire, built only to fall even before the death of its founder. It is well to remember that hie gen ius was great also in other most last ingly fruitful fields. He was not onlx a great warrior, but also a great statesT man-and as such he did not fail to re alise the importance to the community of arts and sciences. Writing to the astronomer Oriani, from Milan, which lie had entered in triumph, Napoleon said: "The sciences which do honor to the human mind and the arts which em bellish life and perpetuate great achievements for posterity, should be especially honored under free govern ments. "... I invite the scholars to meet and to give me their opinions as to the means that should be taken, and the needs to be fulfilled, in order to bring new life and activity into the sciences and the fine arts. Those who wish to go to France will be received with dis tinction by...

PERMIT TO REMARRY. Because he has lived "a uniformly good life" for at least Ave years, Mr. Charles R, Pelgram, a millionaire silk manufacturer of Paterson, a town six teen miles from New York, is to be allowed to remarry.

CURIOUS LEGACY TO A SWISS EDITOR. A wealthy and eccentric Swiss liv ing at Moscow, who died recently from ,'an accident, left a novel will. Per haps the most curious clause is that a certain sum every year should be paid to the present editor of the jour nal "Wochenzeiturig," of Winterthur, in Switzerland, "To drink to my .health." * The Swiss was a native of Winter thur, and the paper was his favorite one, "but the editor, who has accepted the gift to drink to a dead man's health, never, saw. or heard of the man. There is only one condition attach ed to the bequest: the "ceremonies" must take place on January . 1 and August 1 every year until the editor's death. '' People who live double lives are aipt to discover 1n the end that neither of them was profitable. When a man has failed at every thing else he can still become a critic.

GREATER THAN GOLD / By L. T. MEADE, Author of "The Soul of Margaret Rand," etc. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London & Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER VIII. Sheila Danvers possessed those at tributes "which are the common and much-valued prerogatives of certain mixed races. On her mother's side she was Irish to her finger-tips; she had all the impetuosity, the fire, the enthusiasm, the imagination o£ those fascinating people. Mrs. Danvers had "been a Carey from Donegal, and her descent was long and pure. On the other side, Sheila's father was a stur dy Yorkshireman, firm of figure, up right in his hearing, and with a splen did sense of conscientiousness. But Sheila inherited something far more valuable than money. She had derived from her mother pride of race and distinction of carriage, Her eyes-those truly Irish eyes-were put in, as the saying is, "with dirty fingers," the skin around them being a shade darker than the rest of the face. Then, co...
