CLEOPATRA AND THE .11 CROCODILES. TERRORS OF THE "MOVIE'S." The famous actress who plays the part of Cleopatra in the historical fimi tragedy, "Antony and Cleopatra," came within an inch of losing her lixe when the picture was being produced, and she has made up her mind that it ever she is aslced to take part in any other film in which some of her lei low-actors are crocodiles, she will have chem either chained up or behind iron bars. The accident happened in this*vay: in one of the scenes a slave girl who nas incurred the furious jealousy of cue beautiful queen, is first stripped and flogged by Cleopatra's orders, and is" Llien thrown into a pool in which there are a number of gruesome look ing crocodiles. In order to add to the realism of the scene, several real crocodiles, of huge size, were borrow ed from the Rome Zoo, and confined in a tank let into the floor of a part of Cleopatra's Palace. The slave girl is dragged by- attendants to the edge of the pool, and then hurled into...

Conveyances were - of various types—from a four-in-hand, piloted by Mr R. Fry, to a bicycle propelled by some ardent enthusiast.

DISTRICT NEWS. Moondarra. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 19 August 1914

DISTRICT NEWS. (From Our Own Correspondents). Moondarra. The''local footballers played Erica Club here last Saturday, and won by eight points. Their play is improv ing.and they can now evidently hold their own. Good feeling prevailed throughout the match. A local rifle club was being inaugu rated in the district, but a halt has been called for the present, pending information re ammunition, etc. The winter has been dry and frosty, but feed is fair. The season is promising well. Kangaroos are on the increase, but rabbits are for some reason getting scarce. Their livers have been affected with hydatids, and it is believed that this is the cause of many bunnies being found dead. At Gould recently two were found dead and were opened, both being affected with hydatids. Hence it is advisable not to eat any, unless quite healthy. Mrs McFarlane, who went to the t Sale Hospital from Gould recently, owing to ill-health, is slowly improving, and, it is hoped, will soon be able tore turn home. ...

YOO SHOULD BE DETERMINED in rejecting the worthless and frequently in jurious counterfeits which are sometimes pushed for the sake of greater gain as "just as good" as the GENUINE SANDER AND SONS' PURE VOLATILE EUCALYPTI EXTRACT. Be not deceived! SANDER'S EXTRACT is recognised by the highest medical authorities as possessing unique stimulating, healing and antiseptic powers. The preparation of SANDER'S EXTRACT from the pure selected leaves, and the refinement by special processes give it curative virtues peculiarly its own. There fore, be not misled! Demand and insist upon the GENUINE SANDER EXTRACT, and you will derive the benefit that thousands have derived from it before.

THE MO-'AWKS. AT WILLOW GROVE. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 19 August 1914

I i THE MO-'AWKS. I + ! AT WILLOW GROVE. These niggers journeyed to the 'Grove on Wednesday last, together with the i footballers. They were a happy family. The fact that this talented company was to give a concert in aid of the Willow Grove Hall was widely known, chiefly through the medium of this paper. Long before the hour appointed for the curtain to rise, a dense crowd—such as has rarely been witnessed in Willow Grove before—was contained in the hall filling it to overflowing, every nook and corner being the coin of vantage of some young " way-back." Our genial hairdresser and photographer was one who commanded the attention of the audience, and, by his witticisms at one moment and his care-worn looks at the next, betrayed the fact that he had triumphs and difficulties with his prepa rations for taking a flashlight picture of the occupants of the stage. On the rising of the curtain, a deafening ovation greeted the comjany. THE PROGRAMME. Opening chorus, "De 01' Banjo," Com pany...

LADIES' LETTER. From "Irene" in Melbourne. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 19 August 1914

LADIES' LETTER. From "Irene" in Melbourne. The debutante set craze is still with us. It has afflicted Melbourne ever since Lady Madden had her happy— or unhappy—idea of suggesting the scheme, and that the debutantes should be presented to the Acting Governor and herself afterwards. This was many years ago, wheTi Sir John was Acting-Governor, and had taken up his residence at Government House. It was at a big and notable ball they gave, and the idea of the debutante set was hailed as a charming notion. But since then it has been often re garded as anything the reverse, as it has spread to every suburban dance, and has meant wasted time, and of ten that the other dancers have been, kept standing about in the cold for l'rom half-ah-hour to nearly an hour. It has involved many a maiden in un due expenditure. Silly trains as well as bouquets have been made a sine qua non of her debut, when other wise she would have made her modest bow in a simple white frock, and would probably have had ...

PICTURE SHOW HEROICS. A BOY HOUSEBREAKER. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 19 August 1914

PICTURE SHOW HEROICS. | A BOY HOUSEBREAKER. "Your imagination miglit have been affected. by picture shows, but you must not- carry out in practice of fences that seem to you heroic," said Judge Docker, addressing a juvenile prisoner at the Darlinghurst Quarter Sessions. A boy in knickerbockers, Hubert Leslie Hovendene, had plead ed guilty to breaking and entering several dwelling-houses. The boy stole money, jewellery, and other valuables in the houses. m sentencing the boy, Judge Docker said he was at a loss to know the best method of dealing with him. The. evidence at the lower court showed that the prisoner had said he blamed picture shows for his downfall. He had spent day after day at them in Sydney. There had been 14 charges of breaking and entering against the prisoner at the Children's Court, and during the committing of offences pri soner had been armed with a revol ver. He was then a little over 14 years of age. As he was now over 16 he could not be sent to a reformatory. ...

A GIRL BOY. EFFIE FELLOWS' EXPLOITS. LIFT-BOY, SHOPMAN, SINGER. Possessed of the spirit of adventure, and an idea to impose upon the credi bility of the world, Miss Effie Fellows, a well-known resident of Perth, de cided to masquerade as a man. The blood of the mummer must have been running deep in the veins of Miss -Fel lows, for her subsequent disguise, and her perfect imitation of a raw boy, deceived ever her most intimate friends. She told her people that she was i about to take a holiday in Melbourne, 1 and she accepted a position as lift boy at the Palace Hotel, Perth. Here her portrayal of the imp. who jerks the j lift up and down to the terror of the passengers was so perfect that not even her fellow employes suspected for a minute that the nice-looking, clear-skinned lad was a girl. The only occasion in which she lost her wit was when she discovered a half-sovereign in the smoking room of that hotel. She handed it over to the proprietor, Mr. J. T. Glowery, who. handed the "...

TRUSTS THE REPORTERS. THEODORE ROOSEVELT. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 19 August 1914

TRUSTS THE REPORTERS. THEODORE ROOSEVELT. The little Napoleons of Australian politics might do worse than pattern themselves upon Mr. Theodore Roose velt, ex-President and President-De signate of the United States of America, who reached London on Saturday morning, in a battered Pana ma hat and a travel-strained tvveed* suit. Every newspaper of any import ance in the United Kingdom wished to interview Mr. Roosevelt, and Mr. Roosevelt wanted to be interviewed. The Australian politician, in similar circumstances, would either have shut himself up and coyly have issued a statement or have pretended to be too busy to receive journalists. What Mr. Roosevelt did was to hold a general ; reception of press men the minute he had removed the stains of travel from his face and hands. Along with a small army of pressmen, writes the i London representative of the "Sun," I ' was ushered into his presence at the house of his friend, Mr. Arthur Lee.

REMARKABLE TWINS. Twins so alike as to be interchange able are met witli frequently in lic tion, but seldom in real life. The Brothers Uhanteau, the French carica turists, are, however, alike in the smallest details, and their resemblance nas often given rise to amusing con tusion. Their artistic studies in iJaris were interrupted by the call ot compulsory military service. The two Drothers went to draw lots, and fate not being able to arrange that they snould draw the same number, by ah extraordinary coincidence made them draw the two consecutive numbers, 8ti and S7. Gabriel only, however, had to undergo his term. of service, and went to join his regiment at Angiers. But the inseparable twins were not to be divided. Alphonse, in civilian kit, iollowed in the footsteps of his soldier urother, and many were the imbroglios that resulted.
