CHINESE INGENUITY. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 4 June 1914
CHINESE INGENUITY, An interesting instance of harness ing Nature to assist in the work of man and machinery in building a bridge is given by the Rev. J. McGow an in his book "Side Lights on. Chi nese Life." The structure to which he refers was built two hundred years ago, and the engineers had many ser ious difliculties to overcome: "This old stone bridge consists of twenty-five spans, the widest of which mneasures sixty-five feet. The river is very rapid, and by placing the piers so far apart less surface is offered to the force of the waters. "The river is liable to very sudden and powerful rises. This feature ne cessitated that the roadway of the bridge be built of enormously heavy stones, to resist the impetus of the tlood without being lifted from their places. The great slabs are seventy feet long, six thick, and four wide. How did the engineers of two centur ies ago manage such a tremendous task? "The stone was quarried from the hills which rise directly from the river-banks....

ART CRITICISM. Complimentary and Otherwise. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 4 June 1914
ART CRITICISM. Complimentary and Otherwise. Rossetti, who was much given to procrastination, was constantly tell ing Whistler of an idea he had for a picture; but each time Whistler in quired as to'the progress of the idea Rossetti would evade the Issue, not having done a stroke of work in the direction indicated, and would insteadt begin -o talk of his literary ventures. Finally, one day when Whistler mis chievously put the usual question: "And how is the picture coming on?" Rossetti, ignoring the question, said: "Jimmy, I've a neat little sonnet here I'd like to read you." Jimmy sighed and submitted. At the next meeting between the friends Rossetti told Whistler that he had not yet finished the picture, but that he had a frame for it Whjstler inspected the frame, a fine piece of Florentine work, but said nothing. Eventually the procras tinating Rossetti actually did com plete tae picture of which he had talk ed so much, and it was in due course triumphantly exhibited for \Whistler...

DOWNRIGHT HONESTY. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 4 June 1914
DOWNRIGHT HONESTY. "Downright honesty is hard to find." exclaimed a pessimistic gentleman. A well-known literary lady replied, "I hope-not. When you find it where yoil expected to, it attracts no notice. It is a matter of course: and some times you find It when you are not looking for it. "Several years ago my husband and I were hunting for colonial landmarki inl one of the oldest quarters of New York City, when we were attracted by a pretty dlisplay of lingerie and small sillk goods in thile window of a little haberdashery shop).

THI-E MYSTERY OF THIE MACE The Mace was left all alone in a corner of the Speaker's room, or wherever Serieant-at-Arms \Voollrd bestows it when it is not working. All the members were junketing somewhere away at an official lun cheon tendercd to the Governor General.

It chuckled with memories of stolen meanderings at tihe time when Speaker Charlie McDonald hadl banished it from the table. " I'11 do it again," said the Mace, in a spasm of recklessness. "Johnson will be upset about it, but I'm olf to look for Totnmy Bent's Mace agin." It was hobbling through the ...
