WHISTLES AT HIS WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 23 April 1914
WHISTLES AT HIS WORK. "JIy boy," said Uncle Hiram, "don't, for pity's sake, look glum, An' don't set tight your lips as if they speechless were, an' dumb, When some hard task's before you, ior, though laboring like a Turk, The happiest fellow's lie who sings or whistles at his work. A lesson from the buzz-saw learn, that rings with honest glee, While into lumber it converts the trunk of stoutest tree, That hums a low-toned melody when easiest's its lot, An' always sings the loudest when it strikes the hardest knot. * "To make of every task a joy you'll find's an art worth while; The hardest problems of the world are solved by those who smile. Abe Lincoln, when affairs of state perplexed him, deigned to chaff, Well knowing fogs would lift before the sunshine of a laugh. 1-le joked when those about him stood in woe and gloom profound, Yet 'twas liis laughter-wrinkled brow that fame undying crowned. He smiled, or likely chuckled, through each problem's softest spot, But shook with hear...

THE AERIAL GULF STREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 23 April 1914
THE AERIAL GULF STREAM. The Gulf Stream, when it leaves the Gulf of Mexico, enters the Atlantic with a speed of 8 kilometres an hour. It is 60 kilometres wide and 400 metres deep,' and daily transports about 40 millions of milliards of ca lories. .This enormous quantity of heat, of which it is almost impossible to obtain an exact idea, plays a funda mental role in the general climatology of the earth. Strangely enough, it is this stream of hot water, exercising its temperature action on the coasts it waters, which is the direct cause of the existence of deserts. And this is how. Water.is one of the bodies in which heat is the most easily pre served, and consequently the Gulf Stream, even in high latitudes, still keeps an enormous quantity of heat. The masses of air that rest on these hot waters are kept at a temperature higher than the surrounding tempera ture, and form a veritable aerial gulf stream superposed over the marine current. But the aerial current is not like, the marine ...

HOOPS. With the arrival of the hoop season, Jessie Pope sends me the following:— • When you're walking good as gold Down the new suburban street, Where the villas to be sold Are inordinately neat, When you're musing with dejection On the latest by-election. Or brooding over business which is wearing rather thin, If. tliere comes a savage clunking And a swift metallic spanking And a bounding loop o£ iron barks a segment o£ your shin— Pray accept the situation With submissive resignation— Hoops are in! When you're driving in your car With^ the luggage up behind, And a week-end free and far In the forefront of your mind— If a maiden small and sporting Sends a wooden sphere cavorting In the middle of the roadway with an oscillating spin, And all blue-eyed and seraphic Marks the panic of the traffic And the progress of lier plaything with appreciative grin— Prithee check your malediction: 'Tis a time-honored affliction: Hoops are in! —London "Opinion.,,

Barbara liad seen a good deal of Paris, but not nearly so much as slie would have liked to. The count ess, who was a victim of moods, had a melancholy one soon after they ar rived in the Gay City, and went out very little of an evening, and Bar bara had to remain with her in her rooms at the Elysee Palace Hotel. But after a few days they went on to Cambo, and in the charming little Chateau Barbara was supremely happy. The view over the country was su perb, and the air of the Pyrenees was eh glorious that only to breathe it was to feel the joy of life. In Cambo she found the countess less exigent. Madame had visitors, end Barbara was not always invited to join them. She was told that she might make little excursions on her own account, and she did not fail to do so. The countess went out now more frequently than she had done in raris—and she went alone. The gossip of the servants at the Chateau speedily enlightened Bar bara as to the change in he count ess's habits. ^ • "Madame is in...
Already Equipped. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 23 April 1914
I | Already Equipped. "Don't know whether it's new or not. I heard it at G said the I man who had recently returned from | that town. "There's a rich widow living just outside the place," he continued, "and after several elderly gentlemen had' vainly endeavored to lure her into matrimony, a report gained circula tion that she was a regular man-hater. Finally a wealthy widower, carrying with him the evidence of good living and the heartiness that seeks con genial companship, visited the town, and was soon a caller upon the in tractable widow. "After he thought sufficient ad vancement had heen made to justify a proposal he proceeded to feel his way. " 'Beautiful home you have here,' "Yes, I enjoy it.' "'Fine outlook, fine trees, very fine all round. But there is one thing lacking.' " 'Yes.' " 'It is an Adamless Eden, don't you know. You are so good in everything else that I should think you would be ; glad to share these blessings with a • husband.' I " 'Are you proposing, sir?' I" 'I...
FEMININE TRAITS. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 23 April 1914
FEMININE TRAITS. A woman walking on a city foot way will generally choose the inside. She does so partly in order to look at the shop windows, but chiefly on ac count of the slope of the pavement, which is less on the inside. In trams and omnibuses women mostly sit | near the door. At the far end you . will, as a rule, see a majority of men. ■ When men read while travelling they I nearly always read newspapers, but j in the hands of the reading girl, you ' will, with ljare exceptions, see a book, j. When a woman is crossing a street I with much traffic, she runs, in nine ; cases out of ten, and the older she is, j the more inclined she is to run. But the man walks very deliberately. A ! woman holds a closed umbrella by the middle, and usually clasps it to her body. No one ever saw a man carry it in this way. A woman usually raises a cup or a glass or a fork to lier lips correctly—that is. with her el bows close to her body. Most men stick their elbows out, against all rules of etiqu...
AUSTRALIAN EUCALYPTUS. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 23 April 1914
AUSTRALIAN EUCALYPTUS. Tlie Australian eucalyptus,. ,or, as Jt is commonly called, the gum tree, has a world-wide reputation. It has been grown successfully in many countries, and in New Zealand it has been found that its growth is, in favorable spots, faster than in Australia. In Brazil, in which country the eucalyp tus was first introduced a quarter of a century ago, the authorities have came to recognise its intrinsic value for timber. Some ten years ago the" systematic culture of the tree was be gun, and recently Senhor Andrade, Chief of the Forest Service in Brazil, came to Australia to secure further varieties, and to consult with Mr. Slaiden, Director of the Sydney Bo tanic Gardens, who is regarded as the chief authority on eucalypti. The Gov ernment of Brazil desires to cultivate the tree for the sake of the timber, which is eminently suitable for rail way sleepers and also for fuel for railway locomotives. Even in Austra lia it has been found necessary to re sort to reaffor...
NO GOOD FOR BALDHEADED MEN [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 23 April 1914
NO GOOD FOR BALDHEADED MEN j ! For many years Europeans strove I in vain to master the art of a certain kind o£ painting executed by the Chinese. It was a comparatively easy matter to obtain the materials, viz., the brushes, paints and the particular kind of paper used—but there the matter ended. They failed to get the paper to "take" the paints. Persuasion and bribes alike failed to extract from the wily Oriental the secret of applying the colors, and for years the art remained the knowledge of the Chinese. It fell to the lot of a young English bank-clerk to discover the secret. One day—unknown to the artists— he was watching them at work. He was struck by the fact that each time before dipping the brush into the paints, they rubbed it through their hair vigorously a few times. He procured the necessary mater ials and tried to put the colors on, in the ordinary way of course, without success. He then cleaned the brush, rubbed it through his hair a few times and again essayed the ex...

II. Two days after Barbara had been in London she obtained permission of her employer, the Countess Martinez, to spend the evening with the Glyns. ; The meeting was a little painful to Barbara at first. It almost brought j the tears to Her eyes to see Mrs. j Glyn, who had been accustomed to everything that wealth could com- j ir.and, seated in the small, low-ceiling td, shabbily furnished sitting room of the little suburban house—one of a long, monotonous row. Gilbert was at home when Barbara arrived, and his face was a little flushed as he opened the door to her and greeted her in the narrow hall. G.ibert was only human, and he felt just a passing pang of humiliation as he welcomed the girl he loved, the girl who had known liim in such dif ferent circumstances to these sur roundings. But Barbara had not been with Gil bert and his mother and the two girls long before she had quite cheered them up. "It is very hard on Gilbert," said Mrs. Glyn during the temporary ab sence of her son....

FORTUNE OF THE £GLYNS By Geo. R. Sims. I. At six o'clock on a December morn ing Barbara Malleson held the candle aloft and looked around the little bedroom which had been hers ever since she could remember. She was dressed and ready to start on the lirst long journey she had ever taken from home. She opened the bedroom door and called softly down the stairs, "Jenny, is breakfast ready?" The old servant, the only one they kept at the vicarage, came hurriedly to her. "Yes, Miss Barbara, everything'; ready but, oh; my dear, must you go?—-must you go?" "Yes, Jenny, of course I must; bui please, please don't make it harder lor me than it is" Jenny Polwaite's: eyes were very red, and the tears were still in them "It's dreadful, Miss Barbara," she moaned.
