III. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 28 January 1915

III. The reward of Richard s unique powers and perseverance in his own particular line had by this time amounted to a sum on which he could reasonably allow himself a well-earn ed holiday, and circumstances, as well as inclination, counselled liini to take a respite. Lately he liad nearly over reached himself. In negotiating some securities he had .allowed a slight clue to his identity to become known, and there was no knowing how soon tht clue might nob prove his undoing. Only one little matter remained on his mind which he wished to dispose of before giving himself up to a life of luxurious idleness. The knowledge that it was Marian's home he had "cracked" that night in the suburbs, some months ago, had made him very uncomfortable; but what had caused him most mental un easiness had been, not so much the appropriation of some of her property, as the discovery among the haul of some little mementoes of their early wedded life. One of these was his wedding gift to her—a quaint pear!...

SHOALS OF LOVE-LETTERS. In recent action I'or breach of pro mise of marriage it was .stated in court that the defendant had written love-letters of amazing length to the plaintiff. One of these effusions had contained 110 fewer than 110 pages, and the lady who received it had to pay ]/;; excess postage on it. This is by no means a record in lengthy love letters, for during a case tried '11 America a lew years ago a love-letter was produced in court that complete ly (ilied a large manuscript book con taining 300 pages. Probably the record number of love letters ever received by one woman from the same man was :!000. She was a Swiss girl, and her fiance wrote to her so often that his letters filled a large travelling trunk. Among the papers of a bachelor who died in Australia not long since were, found ":400 love-letters, which had been written to him by six differ ent girls.

II. "I knew those girls would forget something, mother." Marian Westlake raised her eyes from the book she had been reading, anil smiled at her interrupter. "What is it, Dick?" "That letter Trixie promised to show Babs. Do you know where it is?" "How thoughtless of her! Yes; 1 fancy it is on the dining-room mantel piece." "Good. 1 expected to have to turn the house upside down to find it."'; "I hope that won't be necessary, my dear," -Mrs. Westlako smilingly re turned, as her son left the drawing room.

THE PROFITABLE ALLIGATOR. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 28 January 1915

THE PROFITABLE ALLIGATOR. Alligators, when in captivity, have to l>c red on meat, but Ihp.v need no rood from September 1 to May 1, for that is their hibernating season, when they do not eat at all. Alligator-skins are used for making bags, suit-cases, purses, bells, cushion-covers, etc., and the teeth and bones are made into cuff-links, paper-knives, whistles, and many forms of cheap jewellery and ornaments. The skins are worth from two to twelve shillings each, ac cording to size and finality. More money, however, is made by selling live !>ab.v-al!igators to museums for pets. It lias been said that the State of Florida receives more than two hundred thousand pounds a year from the trade in alligators.

ir. It was dinner-hour at the Widgers , and IIk- Widger family was seated at tlie table. But Klinor Parish was not there, and Ivan Slinski, entering, ob served that 110 place was laid for her. Nor,- if it -came to that, for himself. ■ He was received in silence. No one, indeed, troubled to look at him. He. closed the door and drew himself :UP-lo,liis full height:. ''I am in receipt of a note from you, niadame," he said, addressing Mrs. Widger. "We'll go into that alter dinner, mosKoo," replied the landlady, bur riedly. "Pardon, it must be now," insisted the Pole. ' ■ "Take your old penny-whistles and clear out," said tlie"gas-worker, with rough good-nature; "I intend to do nothing of the kind," replied Slinski deliberately. "It is not convenient to me just now to change my lodgings." "It is convenient to us, though," said Mrs. Wicj.-r with asperity. "The bandmaster of Bigbeach," de clared Slinski, airily, "cannot afford to have his arrangements upset by a lodging-house keeper. This ...

They were Irish Catholics. " Stepping into the corridor and lcnai ing out oC the window, the Cardinals, who were easily distinguished by their dress, said together: ".May (Jod bless you, my children." In an in stant these young men showed the faith that was in them by dropping to their knees to receive tiie blessing. And the nation adds a fervent "Amen."

II was night. The cliffs bandstand was a blaze of vari-colored fairy lights, and round it swarmed holiday makers in their lens of thousands. They had been disappointed, at first, to see no soldiers' uniforms in (he handstand, for the military band on the cliffs had come to be the town's chief attraction. Nevertheless, they had to admit that the scratch band which the town authorities had raked up was performing wonderfully well, and that the music the old conductor chap had chosen was just the sort for t.lie occasion. It is drawing near ten, and the crowd is greater than ever. Now the band strikes up "Hearts of Oak," now "The British Grenadiers,and each Is sung enthusiastically. But when the majestic strains of "Rule, Britan nia!" sound upon the August night it seems as if every man, woman and child in the great crowd is joining in the great old song: and when, finally, the Pole, with .a last lap of his baton, brings his men " to their, feet and (he first bars of j the.

DISTINCTIVE HAIRDRESSING. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 28 January 1915

DISTINCTIVE HAIRDRESSING. The women of .Japan wear their hair in a manner to indicate whether they are maidens, wives, or widows. The hair of young girls is arranged in front in the form or a fan or the wings of a butterfly, and it is adorned with silver or colored ornaments. Wives usually have the hair so dress ed that there is a sort of wing at, each side, with a corresponding wing at the back. Widows who are look ing for second husbands fasten the hair at the back of the head t>y means of tortoise-shell pins, and widows who are resolved to remain for ever faith ful to their departed spouses cut the hair short and wear no ornament in it.

11. It, was not surprising thai Ivan Slin ski hardly felt disposed to prolong the conversation just then, for it had been in his mind lately to pay definite at tentions to Jilinor Parish, a lodger, .• like himself, in the house of .John AViU ger, an employe at the gasworks. He felt glad, now, that he had never ac tually made love lo lOlinor Parish, that he had just been courteous and kind, ami attentive lo her wants at table, lie had not gone too far, and so no harm had been done. . But the town clerk had spoken in time, lie felt thankful for that. He would now set himself bravely to earn a living for liis band and himself, and she would continue, as heretofore, to eke out a livelihood by doing odd jobs lor the Bigbeach dressmakers, lie could not help heaving a deep sigh of regret, for perhaps, just now, pity was his predominant feeling for Klinor Parish, who, nearing thirty, was a deli cate woman whose weakness and soli tude made a strong appeal to a man of the Pole's chivalrous na...

Slinski sat upon the bed in his garret, and by bis side lay AI vs. Wid gor's ultimatum. It was no ordinary ultimatum. It was not "pay up or go"—for it would bave been easy to go. II was that Mrs. Widger desired his room, and would not permit him to remove bis luggage or musical instruments until he had settled his account. Ilis thoughts, barking back to that day, three years ago, when he had re ceived his dismissal from the town clerk, followed the struggle for a liv ing that had ensued from thou till now! What a struggle it had been! HoW much greyer it had left him! The band had been, like its leader, 011 the veteran side when that dire blow £ell, and yet, dim-eyed and bull and weary as they were, they bad stuck to their playing for the sake of those dependent on (hem. During these three years Ivan Slinski had often thanked Heaven that he was a bachelor. For the words lie had meant to say to Elinor Parish had never been .spok en. He bad just remained her friend.
