CHAPTER IX. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 20 May 1914
CHAPTER IX. ; But if Sheila Danvers was sad over bight, she had no time for melan choly on the following morning. After jail, she was young, and .her glass told iter that she was beautiful. The bun ?was filling her bedroom with a gold en light. She sprang out of bed, washed and dressed quickly without waiting for Nanny'e aid, and was out In the garden some time before breakfast. She could not help a sense of intense relief at the absence of Ralph; and this sense of relief she reproached herself for, as she knew quite well that what gave her plea sure gave poor Aunt Margaret the keenest pain. Nevertheless, she was glad. Ralph as a little boy had been tiresome, selfish and quarrelsome. As he grew older, his greatest delight [was to give Sheila sharp pinches on the sly. All these were objectionable enough; but the last time she was borne his manner had been insolent and overbearing. He had remarked boldly on the color of her eyes, the length of her tawny hair, and the ehape of her feet...
LITTLE BRAIN WAVES. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 20 May 1914
LITTLE BRAIN WAVES. . Handsome men are generally only clothes-props. . Cryin' over spilt milk ain't no good .-it on'y makes it skimmler. , A man may find a woman's eyes .beautiful and never know the exact color of them. The real man-hater doesn't exist, and the sham one gives up directly her lips are kissed. The capable woman will always have a baby to nurse, and the baby will be her husband. Poetry is a charming hobby, but there's no money in it, and It has a shocking effect on the hair. The happiest woman is the one who .does not marry the man she loves; then she can go on loving him. Most women regard men as they do 4the Ten Commandments-something to bo studied, but not obeyed. It's easiest to get a man to marry you when he first loses his head; then he'll do "anything, and not know he's doing it. A platonic friendship usually ends in the woman losing her heart and the man his temper ... or the man his appetite and . the woman her complexion. Modest demeanor is not only becom ing...

Poetic Justice. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 20 May 1914
Poetic Justice. Little things can be very trying at times, especially when they happen to you. Mr. Pry thought something like this -when, one wet morning, he could not find his umbrella. Like most married men, he believed In the max* im, "when in trouble blame your wife." "I say, Mary," he shouted, "what on earth has happened to my new um brella? I brought it home last night, and now it's gone; and, of course, It's raining like mad!" "Why, it's hardly raining at all!" said Mary. "But last night it was simply pouring when the vicar left, and so I lent him your umbrella." "What a silly thing to do! I shall never see it again now, so 1 may as well buy another to-day!" "How can you be so wicked, Percl val? As if the vicar would stoop to stealing your umbrella!" "Stoop to stealing it be hanged! I borrowed it from him a couple of months ago!" A woman who ordinarily pays no attention to what her: husband says, will stay awake all night to hear what he says In his sleep.
UNPLEASANT FOR THE ENGINEER. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 20 May 1914
UNPLEASANT FOR THE ENGINEER. A marine engineer tells of "an un pleasant piece of work he once had to do during the trial trip of a magnifi cent boat that a large firm of contrac tors had turned out i'or one of the oig ocean-going steamship companies. The engines were to run at so many knots an hour, and the big steamer left her moorings and put oat to sea for her trial cruise that was to de cide whether she would be accepted by the steamship company. He writes:-After we had been out to sea but a little time, the chief engin eer discovered that one of the piston rods had a slight defect in it-a thing not infrequent in a large mass of ma chinery-and that in passing to and fro the unwonted friction caused by this defect would in the course of a very little time make the piston and all around it red hot. The conse quence of this would 'be very serious, and would mean a breakdown in the machinery. To allow it to occur would be madness; to stop uie machinery to remedy the defect would rui...
CHILDREN WHO CANNOT SLEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 20 May 1914
CHILDREN WHO CANNOT 8LEEP. Indigestion, hunger, excitement, too much home work in their lessons, fear of the dark and loneliness are the principal causes of sleeplessness in children. Indigestion can generally be curqd hy giving a pinch of bicarbonate of soda in a wineglassful of water, for it is almost always due to acidity of the stomach, caused by too many sweets, tea, coffee, or other food or drink that is not suitable for young stomachs. If a child be hungry it should be fed, a glass of warm milk and some biscuits, a cup of milk gruel or any other light and easily-digested food being given half an hour before go ing to bed. . No child under twelve or thirteen years of age should be allowed to study between supper and bed-time. JIO only tires the young brain and pro duces worry about the following day's work. When a child is afraid of the dark it cannot help it, and must be hu mored and treated with sympathy. It should be taught how baseless its fears are, but, at the same time,...
"SCOTLAND FOR EVER." [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 20 May 1914
"SCOTLAND FOR EVER." A few months ago a noble lord whose finances are.usually In a state which some folk describe as "shaky," had occasion to visit a small town in Scotland. Of course his lordship put up at the best hotel, and proceeded to regale himself in lordly fashion, re gardless of expense. Preparatory to the end of hie visit the scion of no bility had an interview with the pro prietor, which resulted in that worthy accepting his lordship's cheque, which, however, was dated some six i months ahead, the canny Scot having allowed a wide margin of profit as in terest. A fortnight later the ama ed noble man was quietly handed the self same cheque by the factor of his es tate in payment of the sale of some cattle (belonging to his lordship. The artful hotel proprietor, having a bro ther in England in the_ cattle-dealing line, and being rather 'dubious about the nobleman's ability to meet his li abilities, had sent the cheque to hia relative with the injunction to obtain its value f...
NEVER MIND. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 20 May 1914
NEVER MIND. Sometimes, when nothing goes just right, And worry reigns supreme, When heartache fills the eyes with mist, And all things useless seem, There's just one thing can drive away The tears that scald and blind- . Someone to slip a strong arm round, And whisper, "Never mind." No one has ever told just why Those words such comfort bring; Nor why' that whisper makes our cares Depart on hurried wing. Yet troubles say a quick "Good-day!." We leavg them far behind When someone slips an arm around, And whispers "Never mind." But love must prompt that soft | caress The love must aye be true; Or at that tender, clinging touch No heartsease comes to you. But if the man be moved by love, ' Sweet comfort you will find When someone slips an arm around. And whispers "Never mind."
BUDDHA'S FINGERMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 20 May 1914
BUDDHA'S FINGERMARKS. By Wm. North. There have been many awful floods in India, but none quite so appalling as the one which devastated the land before the squirrel obtained his pres ent livery. It sounds odd to date a great occurrence by so apparently tri lling a matter, yet curiously enough the flood in question is solely remem bered by the squirrel's change of dress. He was asleep, and so were his wife and family-the babies were the tini est little creatures, but he was very proud of them-when the relentless volumes of water came crashing down the valley. It uprooted the tree in which he was living at that time, and the tree in which ho was living at that time, and the tree with Mr. and Mrs. Squirrel and their precious in fants went floating down the tide. The position was critical. If the poor, startled little squirrel had given himself up for lost and had spent the time in recalling his* past sins, and/in talcing a fond farewell "f his dear ones, none could have blamed him. As ...
TO MAKE COAL LAST LONGER. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 20 May 1914
TO MAKE COAL LA8T LONGER. Coal is not used as carefully as It might be. When breaking up a large lump of coal It Is generally done by striking It vigorously In a haphazard fashion with the back of the axe, which wastes the coal by pounding Jt to a dust. Now a coal chisel costs but a few pence and this applied to the lump of ooal along the grain or seam ar once splits It cleanly and without any waste of dust One thing there is that we can all do for others, if we will, and that it to express the happiness we feel and to suppr.ess the misery.

QUEER. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 20 May 1914
QUEER. The origin of the word "queer" la due to Quin. He bet one hundred pounds with a nobleman one evening that toy the next morning at break fast time there would be a word In most people's moutha that was never heard before. - That night, when the theatre closed, he got all the "supers" and others whom he had hired, furnished each with a large lump of chalk, and in structed one and all to go through tbe principal streets of London and chalk on the pavement the word "Queer." The next morning people were con founded by the writing on the flags. Some believed it was significant of danger-that a secret enemy waa near, and this was his watchword; so the word went around in a most ama zing way. It might be said to he not "in most people's mouths," but in "everybody's mouth." Quin, of course, won the wager.

The Great Tragedy. , "And this," said the alleged old sol dier, pestering a long-suffering editor who was an old soldier, "is whera the Arabs were massed in front of us. Here"-pointing to another place on a dirty pocket map-"is where our di vision wa,s drawn up in zareba. We deployed in this direction, and our left wing was attacked by the enemy on this knoll. Just at thlg point I was wounded on the left "shoulder, and a hundred yards farther on I got my right arm shattered by a piece of one of our own shells, and " "But," Interrupted the bored editor, "where did you get your brains blown out?" The neighborly spirit Is an excel lent thing to cultivate, although not, perhaps, as it Is cultivated In the fol lowing etory: "How do you like your new home?" a friend asked a man who had re cently moved Into the village. "Pretty well." "Have you called on your neigh bors yet?"1 "I haven't yet," the newcomer ad mitted. "But I'm going to if any more of my wood and coal ie miss ing." :
Not So Green As He Looked. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 20 May 1914
Not 80 Green As He Looked. A man with a wife who has her own ways about doing things is lucky enough to catch her now and then. "My dear," he said the other morn ing as he was dressing, "I think you were right when you told me last night that there were burglars in the house." "Why?" she asked nervously. "Because all the money that I had in my pockfets when I went to bed is gone." "Well," she said, with an I-toId-you so air, "if you had been brave and got up and shot the wretch you would have had your money this morn ing." "Possibly, my dear, possibly," he said. "But if I had done so I would have been a widower." She laughed softly then and gave half of it back to him.
TAKEN FROM TEMPTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 20 May 1914
^TAKEN FROM TEMPTATION. Day by day the girl slaved at her monotonous task, and her heart was filled-with longing tct be out, if only for a few fleeting minutes, in the sun* Bhine that kissed the street. "Could you manage, ma'am," she ventures goaded into rebellion at last, "could you possibly manage to release me for a second or two?" "Bless the girl! Whatever for?" ex claimed the mistress, as horrified as the workhouse master of whom Oliver Twist asked for more. "So that I might walk up the street and down again, ma'am. 1 wouldn't dawdle, really, I wouldn't It is the people passing and re-passing the win dow that makes me envious. They seem so happy and free, while I " Her voice trembled tearfully into al ienee, but on the face of the femalp despot a saintly light appeared. "Ah, well, my dear, perhaps I have been too hard on you," she said softly. "You are young, and temptation is difficult to resist then. You shall go, dear"-she paused, and a cry of joy burst, from the girl's lips...

But he was lazy. He used to go to sleep at midnight regularly, ho matter where he was. Many « time Mr. De'* Payste has left the club for home at two o'clock in the morning and found William snoring in the car outside. Imagine how it must have looked to our friends to see our chauffeur aBleep In the street!"
Courage. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 20 May 1914
Courage. Admiral Lord Howe, when Captain, was hastily awakened In the middle of the night by the lieutenant of the watch, who. informed him with great agitation that the ship was on fire near the magazine. "If that be the case," said he, rising leisurely to put on his clothes, "we shall soon know it." The lieutenant flew back to th£ scene of danger, and, almost instantly returning, exclaimed, "You heed not, sir, be afraid, the fire is extinguish* ed." "Afraid!" exclaimed Howe. "What do you mean by that, sir? I never was afraid in my life." Then, he addel, looking the lieutenant full in the face, "Pray, how does a man feel when he is afraid? I need not ask how tie looks."
LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 20 May 1914
LADIES' LETTER. (By "Irene.") A Melbourne girl writing from Lyons speaks of her visits to the shops, which are very beautiful and in which wares are attractively dis played, but she says one cannot help contrasting the life of the French shopgirl with that of the Melbourne .girl, the wages and the hours being so different. In Lyons the shops open at seven iu the morning and remain open until eight -in the evening. Only a few of the best shops close on Satur day afternoon, and most of them are open on Sunday. The highest wage a girl reecives is 15/ a week, which is vastly different to that obtainable here. My correspondent has also been shown through several large silk warehouses- and says that crepe de chine has been quite ousted by taf fetas, and that to be quite chic every thing must show a touch of tartan. An interesting piece of fashion news has come from Paris. Burglars car ried away from an emporium 500 cor sets in motor-cars. Articles are known to have been carried away from ...
