MAKING THE BISHOP LAUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 23 April 1914

MAKING THE BISHOP LAUGH. Probably one of the prettiest com pliments ever paid to the fair sex was that contained in the answer made by Dr. Potter, Bishop of New York, who was once asked by a lady why, in the many pictures and studies of angels exhibited, the angels were always de picted either as women or as young men without beards or moustaches. "Everyone knows," replied the Bishop, "that women naturally inherit the Kingdom o£ Heaven, but men only get in by a very close shave." This' story is related by the Rev. T. Selby Henrey, \icar of St. George (Brentford), whose little volume, en titled "Attic Salt," provides many an illustration of the fact that wit and appreciation of humor are not the least prominent characteristics of lead ing divines. He tells a story of the late Dr. Creigliton, who once received a book from a second-rate author, to whom he replied by post, "I thank you very mttch for forwarding to me your book, and I promise you faithfully that I will not lose any time ...

How Simple the Life! [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 23 April 1914

How Simple the Life! When Eve held forth in Paradise She found much pleasure in it, .For when she did her Monday wash It only took a minute. And when the washing blew away She didn't fret or whine; She simply sauntered forth and picked New garments from the vine. Be sure of yourself, but never of a woman.

GREATER THAN GOLD By ti. T. MEADE, Author of "The Soul of Margaret Rand," etc. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London & ■ Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. • CHAPTER IV. Mrs. Bellairs waited anxiously for her husband. She wanted to tell him what she had done, but at the same time she honestly dreaded imparting her news, for if there were an up right, steadfast, high-principled man, it was Peter Bellairs. He might not like her having written to the hotel to invite Mr. Kruger to lunch, and yet she could scarcely keep him in ig norance, for only by telling him could she get possession of the motor-car, which was to convey the worthy law yer to Sunnyside. In the afternoon a letter arrived . from Ralph. He implored his mother to let him have .G100 without delay. "1 have got into a little trouble over bridge," he wrote, "and must pay it at once. You'll manage, won't you, mums, dear, for you never failed a fellow yet" (No, and never sliail," thought the mother.) Her...

The Limit. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 23 April 1914

The Limit. Mary Jane's master is a slightly ec centric bachelor. He has one most irritating habit. Instead of telling her what he wants done by word of mouth he leaves on his desk, or 011 the kitchen table, or anywhere else where she is likely to see it, a note curtly directing her to "Dust the din ing-room," or "Turn out my cup board," and so on. The other day he bought some note paper, • with the usual die-sunk ad dress imprinted upon it, from the sta tioner, and ordered it to be sent home. Mary Jane took it in, and the first thing that caught her eye was a note attached to the package. She read it open-eyed. "Well," she said, "he's asked me to do a few things in his blessed notes, but this is the limit. I won't stand it no longer!" For the note read: "Die Inside This Package."

The Same Line. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 23 April 1914

The Same Line. Several "commercials" were seated in a railway carriage, when the door opened and an elderly woman enter ed, whose appearance denoted that she was a native of the Emerald Isle. One of the party, who posed as a wag, at once began to extract amuse ment from her by asking a number of ridiculous questions, to which she replied good liumoredly, and at last exclaimed: "Now, sorr, I've given you a good dale ov me history, may 1 take the liberty av axin what ye are yersilf? What ye do for a livin' loike?" "Certainly, ma'am, certainly," was the ready reply, "I'm a traveller in the hard and soft goods line." "Indade, now," said Biddy, "that's quare, myould man's a traveller, too." "Indeed, ma'am," was the surprised rejoinder. "What line is he in, pray?" I "Just the same as yersilf, sorr, the hard and soft goods loine—he thravels up a ladder wid bricks an' mortar." The inquisitive bagman did not press for further information.

When She Began To Think. "Biddy," said Pat timidly, "did ye iver think o' marryin'?" "Sliure now," said Biddy, looking de murely at her shoe—"sliure now, the subject has niver entered me mind at all, at all." * "It's sorry, Oi am," said Pat, and he turned away.

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 23 April 1914

KITCHEN WRINKLES. A strong solution o£ borax poured down sinks and drains will banish of fensive smells. * A little ground almonds mixed through a fruit cake will prevent the fruit sinking to the bottom. If you want to heat a flat-iron in your room, a tin plate over the gas jet will enable you to heat the iron I-.vice as quickly. Before blanching almondis soak tlsem for two or three minutes in boiling water; the skin will then slip off quite easily. Scorch marks on linen may'be re moved by rubbing with a l'reshcut cnion, the garment being afterwards soaked in cold water. To stop hiccough, give the' patient a teaspoonful of granulated sugar and vinegar. If this does not.afford in stant relief, repeat the dose. When boiling any kind of greens, use sugar in place of soda, which gives the greens a much better flavor, but they then require a little longer cooking.

The Herald. THURSDAY, APRIL 23, 1914. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 23 April 1914

.. THURSDAY, APRIL 23, 1014. The Towong Shire Council at its next meeting" will proceed to the discussion of the question of the propriety of handing over to the Government' the duty of dairy inspec tion within Towong territory. The movement in this direction has been initiated by Cr. Tobin, who considers that a change in the direction pro posed will be in the very best interest of the dairy industry. We believe that among the people engaged in that industry there is a strong con sonsus of opinion in favor of Govern ment control. We are aware that the favorable feeling is not unanim ous. Some dairymen there be who are fearful lest Government control will mean harassment of themselves and their operations; and, again, the extra cost of the system is unduly vexing their thrifty souls. It is stated that some of their number have been ear-wigging councillors, who are asked to listen to their tale of woe and to pause before taking a step that is calculated to "ruin the dairy ing industry...

CHAPTER V. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 23 April 1914

CHAPTER V. When Sheila came td\Sunnyside it was precisely as though the entire house was lit up by something joyful, something which strongly resembled sunshine. Sheila, whatever the Afri kanders thought of her, was only a child, and she behaved exactly like one on this occasion. Her face was wreathed in smilev, her eyes were more expressive even than usual, the gleam of her pearly teeth showed when she laughed and talked. She was particularly affec tionate to Peter Bellairs and to Mar garet, his wife. She ran gaily about the grounds picking the daffodils and violets, and altogether behaving like a young thing who had never before enjoyed the delights of full liberty. Sheila was very much interested in her new garments, and as she tried on each jacket, each skirt, each hat with its simple band of ribbon, she flew out to try to find her beloved Uncle Peter. She always called him Uncle Peter. He was her beloved, her darling. Peter Bellairs gazed cri tically at the frocks and hats. He ...

THE LOST LAKE OF GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 23 April 1914

THE LOST LAKE OF GOLD. .somewhere in north-western Ari zona—the precise whereabouts is now a matter o£ conjecture—is a lake "of gold formed by Nature. On Decem ber 13, 1858, a party of gold-seekers, twenty-two men in all, were prospect ing in north-western Arizona when they came upon a band of nomad Apaches, who had witli them consid erable'gold, in the shape of nuggets and dust. After many pressing ques tions as to where they had obtained it, a half-bred Mexican volunteered to guide the white men to the spot for a consideration. He led them three hundred miles over a wild and desert country, to a spot near the head waters of the Gila river, where there were three mountain peaks in the form of a triangle. Here was a dried-up lake, the ancient bed a jumble of nuggets and gold-dust. The prospectors shov elled £40,000 worth into sacks, and twelve of them set out with it to Fort Yuma. They never reached Yuma, however, for they were am bushed and killed by • Apaches in a defile since kno...
