A chemist has to listen to other people's troubles all day long, and sometimes half the night, too—it's pretty trying, and one gets very weary of it, 1 can tell you—and sometimes 1 get so run down that 1 go right off my food, and the only thing I can touch is a cup of tea. Now, provided tea is pure, and not overdrawn in the making, it is about as good a thing as you can take when you feel very tired, and there's ceitainJy nothing that you can drink with your meals that's nicer or better for you— tea's much better even than fresh water, because to make tea the water must be boiled, which kills all the germs in it — whereas, when you drink plain water you swaJlow the germs alive. Robur is the purest tea that can be got, and I can recommend the No. 1 Grade — it really is wonderfully nice tea.

SING A SONG. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 25 April 1914

SING A SONG. If you'll sing a song as you go along In the face of the real or the fancied ■wrong In face of the doubt, if you'll fight it out, And show a heart that is brave and stout; If you'll laugh at the jeers and refuse the tears, You'll force the ever-reluctant cheers That the world denies when a coward cries, To give to the man who bravely tries; And you'll win success with a little song— If you'll sing the song as you go along. If you'll sing a song as you plod along You'll find that the busy, rushing throng Will catch the strain of the glad re frain ; That the sun will follow the blinding rain, That the clouds will fly from the blackened sky, That the stars will come out by-and bye, And you'll make new friends, till hope descends From where the placid rainbow bends. And all ^because of a little song— If you'll sing the song as you plod along. If you'll sing a song as you trudge along You'll see that the singing will make you strong, And the heavy load, and the rugged road, ...

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

-III. It was unduly late when they en tered the conservatory, and Desdy was rather frightened by all the finely dressed people having coffee there. When he had been washed, and had found fault with this ibungler who knew so little how to get black off chubby faces, he asked if the grand folk had "done tea yet"; and when in formed that this was dinner, the para dox kept him silent for many minutes. "Is Lally going to have dinner, too?" "Certainly she is. Now come along, old chap, and you shall have some thing very good." They sat down in the restaurant, and a waiter began to serve them. Desdy was all for eating sardines by holding them up 'by the end of the tail and swallowing them piecemeal; he seemed astonished when Hugh cor rected him, and sat there a little pa thetically with a fish in his lianij and the blue eyes wide open. "How do you do it, Hugh?" "With a fork—like this, Desdy." "But 1 shove it into my lap when 1 do that. What does the man make that row for?" "It's the gramoph...

The Degree of Annoyance. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 25 April 1914

The Degree of Annoyance. ine ivaaser, wno nas appareuuy banned the "tango," has a habit of gently tugging at his left ear when anything- bothers him. One day, some years ago, when he was on a visit to England, he was hajnded a telegram. The contents of the message apparently displeased him, for he immediately began tug ging at his ear. The Prince of Wales, then a small boy, watched the performance with considerable interest. "Uncle," he said at length, "why are you pulling your ear?" "Because I'm annoyed, I suppose," replied the Kaiser. "And when you're very annoyed," persisted the young Prince, "what do you do then?" "Then I pull somebody else's!" an nounced His Majesty viciously. "You're terribly severe in your re ligion, Donald. I suppose you think we're all going to perdition, and no body will be saved but you and your minister!" "I'm not so sure o' that," said Don ald, thoughtfully. "Ye ken, I whiles liae ma doots about the minister!"

AN AUSTRALIAN RAIN-MAKER. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 25 April 1914

AN AUSTRALIAN RAIN-MAKER. Little did the Premiers of New South Wales, Victoria, and South. Australia think when they were wrangling the other day over the perennial Murray waters question that the solution of the whole diffi culty arising from the rival claims of irrigation and navigation had been ar rived at by an officer of the Common wealth Government. This modern reader of riddles, Mr. Balsillie, the Commonwealth wireless expert, claims to have solved the problem of rain-making that has puzzled the wits of men for untold ages. For some time back it has been known that Mr. Balsillie was of the opinion that he had by means of electrical science obtained a mastery over the clouds. That, even in these days of scientific marvels, must rank as something ex traordinary. Mr. Balsillie has taken preliminary steps towards turning his discovery to practical use by lodging an application lor letters patent for his rain-making devices, and it is un derstood a company is to be formed with the...
