PIGS AT BAROMETERS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 18 June 1914
PIGS AT BAROMETERS. Probably the last tiling 0110 would expect to indicate changes in the wea ther is h pig's tail. The skipper of a Norwegian sailing ship, who usually has a porker or two on hoard says one could scarcely have a more reli able barometer. When a weather dis turbance is coming on, the tails of the pigs straighten out, and their ears droop. When the barometer gets be low 20.50, the pigs seek shelter, ami the storm is pretty certain to burnt within five hours. But a high baro meter puts a beautiful twist in the tails, and the ears stand jauntily stiff and with a trifle of a cant forward.

AT THE PRICE OF HIS_ HAPPINESS. By HARRY. STONE. I. Derrick Hardane flung open tli3"' door, anti entered the room in his usual boisterous manner. "Hallo, Gilbert!" he cried. I won tiered if you were still here. Coming along yet?" With a furtive and shiny look in, ])is eyes, Gilbert Dexter ro'se to liis: feet, and stood backing against the desk, in an attitude which suggested , a. wild animal at bay. His hand fumb led about among the papers as he fev erishly tried to cover lip something which lay there. "N-no," he stammered. "I'm ';usy I'm busy.' Hardane strode towards him with a look of astonishment and concern on his frank "countenance. 'AVliy, what's up, old chap?" he asked, sobering suddenly. "You look as if you'd seen a ghost."

THE PIGGERY. WINTER PIG POINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 18 June 1914
THE PIGGERY. 7» . , WINTER PIG POINTS. Keep the pigs warm. Tliey will grow all the winter if conditions are right. To winter pigs at a standstill is throwing'away the food they eat. They are so starved and* neglected that they, draw upon the little fat in their bodies to keep them alive. Where is the common-sense or thrift in such methods? Start out with right ideas about what real economy in feeding is. [ Starving is not economy; it is the I costliest thing one can.do. Satislied profitable, pigs will grunt, j but they do not squeal. «? One thing no pijg grower can af ford to do without is a good feeding trough. Dig cracks sometimes take more than the hogs do,. Statistics show that the manure from each pig is worth £2 a year. . You see it will pay to save this manure.

II. Derrick Hardane, tanned anti hard ened under sunlit skies, tolled up tlie long staircase o£ a block of L.C.C. dwellings near the Tate Gallery. For weeks he had been making unsuccess ful inquiries, and he feared that his! present quest would prove equally fruitless., "This must be the flat,': he reflected, ' as he knocked at the door of a flat., After a long interval the door was, opened, and a decrepit old man appear ed. Derrick stared at him in astonish ment. The change In him in the seven years since the last meeting was as tounding. "You are Mr. Cornish?" he asked. "Yes. What is it?" replied the'old man, querulously.. "Don't you know me?" asked Der rick. - "I'm afraid I don't," mumbled Cor nish. "What do, you want?" "I want to talk to you," replied Der rick, a wave of pity going through him as he wondered Avhat stroke of mis fortune had brought liis former ein ployei-to this state of breakdown and poverty.

The Federal Fight. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 18 June 1914
The Federal Fight. "A clear fire, a clean hearth, and the rigour of the game." " This" says Charles Lamb in his fuiuv.s essay,''was the celebrated wisl. of old Sarah Battle who, next to her devotions, love! a good game at whist." In the same spirit Mr Cook, speaking in the House ol Representatives on \Voiia;'sd;;v. said:-"While this light is i>oint-r on I don't want a of ad vantage to my si.ie. 1 want a straight, square, -:andup light. Any step that wili help to that end I shall be only too delighted to take." 'fir1 words used by the Primo Minister amply express the feeling of every honest citizen, be he Liberal or Laborite. It. is a pity therefore that, on Wednesday, some members of the Opposition saw fit to say very wild, very awe' ping things, about an alleged conspiracy to disfranchise the nomadic worker. The assertions as to the doings of Liberal Organisers unnamed were almost, though not quite, as startling as the absence of definite facts to support them. And in this in st...
EARLY YUCATAN RACES CAPABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 18 June 1914
EARLY YUCATAN RACES . ' CAPABLE. Various author! ties have ascribed to the ruins in Yucatan an ago of from 1000 to 11,000 years. These fig ures are based on data derived from calendar stones preserved in niauy places both in Yucatan and in neigh boring regions such as Mexico and Guatemala. The stones can be deci I phered with considerable accuracy, and exact dales can be assigned to the construction of many buildings. The only trouble is that the dates belong J i) the various local eras of the dif ferent countries, and no one knows '.ilii'ii ,'t single one of tiio eras began. This ignor..nce affords an ample .field for specula, ion. There are, however, iv.-iymin for believing (writes k!isworth fJuiitin.gcon in "Harper's. - .Magazine"! tli.it the ruins date back a Ions before the coming of the Spaniards. Two of ;tio strongest of t;i. r. as.'tis are that when the Span iards came ;o Yucatan, early in the sixteenth century, the Mayas, in the lirst place, were a slow, mild, uupro ures.si...
HER BONNET. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 18 June 1914
ER BONNET. When meeting bells bcgnu tt> toll And pious folks began to pass, She deftly tied her bonnet on. The sober meeting lass. All in her neat, white-curtained room, before her tiny looking-glass.* So nicely round her lady cheeks, She smoothed her hands of glossy hair, And Innocently wondered if Her bonnet did not iria!v her fair; Then sternly chid her foolish heart | for harboring such fancies there. So square she tied the satin strings, And set the bows beneath her chiu, Then smiled to see how sweet she looked, : Then thought her vanity a sin, And she must put such thoughts asvay before the sermon should begin. But; sitting 'neath the preached word. Demurely in her father's pew, She thought about her bonnet still. Yes, all the parson's sermon through. About Its pretty hows and buds, which better than the text she knew. Yet, sitting there with peaceful face, The reflex of her simple soul. She looked to be a very saint. And maybe was one, on the whole. Only that her pretty bo...
