WHICH LEG? [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 7 August 1914
WHICH IjECr ? In a small town in tho West of Scotland tho town * clerk, who was a bit of a "charactcr," had tho mis fortune to lose his leg in a railway accident. , As a mark of appreciation and es teem for. his long services, tho coun: cil unanimously agreed to replace his loss with nn artificial limb, which they did as soon as ho Was sufficiently recovered. A few months afterwards the town clerk, who was generally known by his Christian name, Paul, was un fortunate enough to have his other leg fracturud in a 1*rap accident. Naturally the mishap became food for town gossip, and one old wife, in discussing the matter with a neighbour, was overboard saying "It's a goy bad business for Paul, puir man; but is't his ain leg or the leg that belangs to tho toon that's broken ?"

Convict's Gratitude. STEALING FOR PHILANTHROPY. George Gunning, a taciturn Eng lishman, who was recently released from gaol in America, where he had been detained for stealing dia monds from the. house of a New York physician, confessed that he had robbed there and in Europe be cause of his direction for two little English orphan girls. Gunning says that he left Dartmoor Prison in 1909, penniless, friendless, and de sperately lonesome. Hunger drove him to a pleasure park, where suc cour came to him from two little charges of a foundling asylum. The children were enjoying a picnic but, seeing him in distress, they gave him buns and cake. In their haste to run away from "the wild man" the two children fell into a pond. Gunning rescued both, and slunk away before the women folk could see him. "Immediately I resolved to help those kids," said Gunning. "I en tered a house outside London that night. With the loot I dressed like a nctfjleraati, I went to the found ling asylum and managed t...
Mr. Birrell's Ghost Story. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 7 August 1914
Mr. Birreli's Ghost Story. Mr. Birrcll told a ghost story at tho Bristol Press Fund dinner, when responding to tho toast "Literature and Journalism." In referring to a recent speech by Dr. Silvanus Thompson on tho importance-; of science, Mr. Birrell said "I don't, know, my Lord Mayor,, whether you .ever' have bad dreams, but I have.' been haunted over since I wns almost a boy by; the constant repetition of one and the samo dream. "It comes to ino again and agatu. It is this. I dream Ij am walking, about somewhere in some plain or desert, and I suddenly encounter the agitated ghost of Sir Isaac New ton.

WEALTH FROM SAWDUST. GAS AND BREAD MADE FROM IT [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 7 August 1914
WEALTH FROM SAWDUST. OAS AND DREAD MADE FROM IT American and Canadian sawmills hav« discovered that the sawdust which they have been perplexed how to rid themselves of as a worthless encumbrance is worth at least X8 per ton. In Baltimore a chomist has perfected a process of extract ing gas from sawdust, adequate enough to supply a city like Ot tawa with light and heat at 5d. per 1,000 feet. This is thought to portend that around the great saw mills, which have beon omptying their dust into tho Ottawa Rivor, a variety of now industries subsist ing on it are likely to grow' up. In Austria, where everything in the shape of fuol is being carefully searched for, sawdust is impreg nated with a mixture of tarry sub stances and heated to the proper temperature ; it is then passed over a plato of iron heated by steam, from which a screw-conveyer takes it to a press, where it is com pressed into briquettes of tho re quired size. Tho press turns out about nineteen overy minute, weigh ing two-f...
CLEARING STUMPS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 7 August 1914
CLEARING STUMPS. As the years go by, and land be comes more and more-valuable in this country, greater attention will hove to be paid to making every part of a holding capable of yielding the maximum return, and in tho case of old bush land this con only be done by clearing oil tho stumos and fitting the land, where it is level enough, for tbe use of the plough. Blowing out stumps with ex plosives is, of course, no new thing, but the actual experience of a STth Australian fanner may be a guide PS to the methods and approximate cost to those who have had no pre vious experience in the work. "I had," writes a correspondent of tho Adelaide "Observer," "some 230 stumps ' and dead trees removed from the land. Many of them were up to 6ft. in diameter. The work was performed by Mr. E. Thomson of Pnrkside (better known as 'Dyna mite Thomson'), at a total cost of £27, which works out at 2/4 per stump. The time occupied was 34 hours. A considerable expense and ncodless delays were incurred in...

THE DAIRY. THE JERSEY COW. from an Address by L. P. Bailey, Ohio.) The product* of th» Jersey cow milk, cream, butter and cheese stand, in the markets of the world, for best quality. A11 these havo won more premiums in tho great com petitive shows than all other breeds combined.

PIONEERS OF EMPIRE. IN THE HEART OF AFIUGA. Thero arc few more pathetic part ings in human history than that1 In which tjje white-haired l)r. Liv ingstone said "good-bye" at TJn >a.nyembe one March day in 1872,' to Henry Morton Stanley, the lion hearted young man, who, when the world had thought the bravo ex plorer dead, had fought his way to him, in the heart of Africa, through a thousand perils and hard ships.* In vain did Stanley urge the bro ken and travel-worn man to return with him to Europe where rest and laurels awaited him. Living stone's work, after thirty years in tho dark places of Africa, was still incomplete ; ho had set his heart on wresting from tho Nile the secret of her source; and with unfalter ing courage he said farewell to the last white mau ho was destined to see, and turned his feeble steps again towards his goal. A little more than a year later he was found dead, kneeling by the side of his his bed at Chitambo, leaving to others the completion of the work...

CHAPTER "XIII. A OASE OF BARTER. Joshua Hethcrington sat quite still, looking, with blanched face at the man opposite to him, whose ut terance bad come like an avalanche, bringing, that past, \vhicli had seem ed so far away, so securely buried, back to him, and revealing in all its baldness the crime he had commit* ted. "I know all about the blue dia monds," repeated Fitzpatrick. For a moment longer there was eilcnce, the two men sat and looked at each other, and as he j;azed at his companion Hetherington realised that he was a man whose silence could be bought, and the thought braced him up, so that his voice J never faltered aB he Baid : j "What do you kmow about the blue diamonds ?"
