PRETTY LADY DETECTIVE "SMARTEST THING OUTSIDE SCOTLAND YARD." [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 26 August 1914

PRETTY LADY DETECTIVE | "SMARTEST THING OUTSIDE [ SCOTLAND YARD." There is a lady detective in Lon don, a pretty girl with beautiful hair, and a charming smile, who has, never theless, become the bane of the ex istence of the evildoer. She is the daughter of a lawyer, and the sister of lawyers, and to her early training she attributes her faculty of "put ting two and two ■ together." So suc cessful has she proved, that she has now her own olflce, and employs a staff of 12, seven men and five wo men. Her den suggests a dainty bou doir, rather than a sleuth's office. She is just seven and twenty, with a re cord that is envied far and wide among her male rivals. She has a good-fellow manner, and her very clothes suggest the woman of leisure rather than the keen policeman. But she is a keen observer, and has laid her plans beautifully. "You are alone." said, an interviewer recently to her. "Suppose that 1 made a spring at you and tried to throttle you, what would you The lady at this mo...

ANIMAL MATES. QUEER CASES OF COMPANIONSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 26 August 1914

ANIMAL MATES. QUEER CASES OF COMPANION SHIP. There used to be a large male cat on Tabletop station which was never so happy and contented, seemingly, as when curled up on the back of one of the thoroughbred colts which grazed in a paddock at the homestead. After a while the colt also appeared to become very fond of his feline com-' panion, which would get on to his back and. sleep serenely in the sun what time the horse roamed about in search ' of grass, or rested in the shade of a tree. Sometimes, if the cat did not make his appearance when expected, the horse would hang about the fence near the house on the look out for his mate, and would give a succession of satisfied whinnies when the wait was ended. These two ani mals became so attached to each other that they did not appear to need any other companionship. On Mundawad dera station there was for some years an English terrier which could "ride" any horse about the place. But he was especially the mate of an aged hackney mare. T...

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 26 August 1914

TO TUE EDITOR. Sir,—In the present turmoil, which involves nearly the whole world, we turn with interest to those who aria rendering assistance, however small, to our Empire in her hour of need. We notice that the Boy Scouts are doing their share, and it was by using boys to do men's work, and thus saving the men, that the Boy Scout Movement was originated by Sir Robert Baden-Powell at Mafeking. Boys trained as they are in the Scout Movement can render valuable assistance in scouting, first-aid, signalling and despatch-running in actual warfare, and I wish to appeal to all the Gippsland boys who are Scouts, or who have had Scout training, to render what assistance they can. I should be glad to receive, without delay, the names of any Boy Scouts who will be willing to place their services at the disposal of the country if such be necessary; at the same time, I shall be glad to receive any small contributions from them towards the Patriotic Fund, the amounts thus received to be for wa...

LIVING IN LUXURY. ENGLISH LADIES AND THEIR. ^ PETS. Dogs wortli their weight in gold were exhibited at the Pekinese show in Chelsea, and some of the sights to be seen there inspired the "Daily News" to the following outburst:— "It is difficult to read without phy sical nausea the accounts published of the Pekinese Dog Show at Chelsea. Roman society in its most decadent days would have nothing to fear from compax'ison with these ladies and their pets. Caligula made his horse a senator; but then Caligula was gen erally recognised by his contemporar ies as quite mad. These people who provide their hideous little animals with motor cars and medicine chests, who feed them on the most delicate food served in costly china and de vote no small portion of their own lives (perhaps the least costly sacri fice) to caressing and attending upon them, are not accounted mad. They are only fashionable. But need Fash ion ylso be callous and wicked? And what other epithets can be bestowed on a fashion...
