PART 5. CHAPTER VIII. THERE SB. "The Cottage" stood in a shady lane about half a mile from the vil lage of Old Wynthshay. It was a long, low white stone building, of a couple of storeys. At least, it had been white many years ago ; now it was of nondescript colour, but so covered with creepers and a luxuriant rose-tree that in the summer very little of the walls were to be seen. A good-sized flower garden surrounded it, and beyond it was a well-kept kitchen garden.

The Food of the Gods. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 17 July 1914
The Food of the Gods. We have been afforded a private view at West's Film House, Sydney, of the cinematograph film, " The Food of the Gods," which from an educational and entertaining standpoint leaves nothing to be desired, and should be seen by old and young. It deals with cocoa, from the planting of the bean in the far tropics to its final issue in the shape of cocoa and chocolate from the great works of Cadbury Bros., at Bournville, names which are household words wherever the English language is spoken. The first portion of the film is devoted to the raising and planting on the firms estates in Trinidad, the cocoa harvest; the opening of the pods, and the drying of the beans in a tropical sun; the bagging process, carriage by big-boned mules to the railways, and so on to the ship, and arrival at Bournville. Then follows the after treatment, under ideal surroundings, for which Bournville has become famous as " The Factory in a Garden," a factory which is a town in itself, inters...

Royal Walking-sticks. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 17 July 1914
Royal Walking-sticks. 1 The recent announcement that Andrew Jackson's heavy hickory stick has been presented to Presi dent Woodrow Wilson reiiiinds one that King George :inherited the 2,000 walking-sticks which belonged to his • father,- King Edward. The | collecting of' walking-sticks was his late Majesty's favourite hobby, his most., treasured stick . being one. which , was regularly carried by Qucen .Victoria. This remarkable stick was fashioned from a branch of the Boscobcl oak which ones concealed . Charles IT. when escap ing from Cromwell's soldiers Queen Victoria had it altered somewhat, and a little idol from Seringapatam was inserted as a knob. King Edward's collection of walk ing-sticks, of course, included all sorts of designs. It was a fact, however, that he preferred as a rule an ordinary crook shape. In deed, his fondness for this particular design gave not a little impetus to its popularity. .Talking of famous walking-sticks and their owners, Messrs. Henry; Howell and...

FEARFUL PLIGHT IN BUSH. INJURED MAN'S ^EXPERIENCE. A young man named Chessworth, residing near Combaning, New South Wales, is now un inmate Ol & hospital suffering from a broken leg. After the accident, the victim, who was working alone in the hash, crawled to his tent, where he remained without succor for three days.

Then he held the horse while he managed to saddle and | bridle it. With the aid of a log he climbed on to the horse, and rode several miles to a doctor, who found that mortification had set in. While Chessworth was trying to catch the horse his brother rode within a couple of hundred yards of the tent without being aware of his brother's plight. The injured man is married, and has a young family. His many friends in this district will be interested to learn that Mr. S...

COURSING NOTES. MURTOA CHAMPION MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 17 July 1914
COURSING NOTES. MURTOA CHAMPION MEETING. Last week's coursing meeting at Murtoa served to show, not only the popularity of the sport at the present time, but the suitability of our country for open coursing. Hares were plentilul —sixteen nice runs being negotiated each day—and the courses were visible throughout to the crowd as from a grand-stand. Puss had plenty of chances to escape, as shown by the fact that only five haves were killed out of the 32 courses. Mr. Jack O'Shannesy, the juJge, who has officiated at meetings throughout the State, was delighted at the manner in which everything was conducted. He was well mounted on Mr. G, Gerdts' Kaiser, and had no difficulty in adjudicating, as the wins were pronounced in nearly every case. That he gave entire satisfaction goes without saying, and his services will be again sought for the club's next meet ing. Years ago there were good coursing meetings at Murtoa, but none so suc cessful as that of last week, a fact that can be mainly ...

"Princess Carambo." 1— In April of the year 1817, an • agricultural labourer in Gloucester shire found a young woman of prepossessing appearance roaming through the fields alone, friendless and destitute. He handed her over. to the nearest county magistrate, a Mr. Samuel Worrall, of Knole Hall. To this gentleman and his family she proved a great mystery, for they could not understand her lan guage. Many learned professors of languages were called in, to try to converse with her, but none suc ceeded. By dint of signs, however, she made them to understand that , she came from a great personage, and that she had been kidnapped in I a dynastic plot, then carried to ! England, and left on the shore in a destitute condition. England was agog with the news. The highest in the land came to Knole Hall to interview the "Prin cess Caraboo." Then, to intensify the excitement, a tramping Portu guese sailor called at Knole Hall, pretended to interpret her lan guage. The girl was, he said, un doub...
