IV [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 30 April 1914
The woman shrank foack with a cry of fear, and Dick Curtis flung a pos sessive arm about her shoulders—an action -which maddened the man con fronting them. . • "Take your vile hand from my wife, you ibrute!" he said violently. "Since you've turned up at this in opportune moment," said Curtis slow ly, "you may as well learn the truth once and 'for ever. If you hadn't been a blind fool—surely the simplest God ever allowed to live in this topsy turvy world—you would have known better than to go away and leave me in charge, so to speak, of your wife. I tried to blind mysell to things, but I was not quite strong enough; that'a all. I'm only a very human, ordinary fiesh-and-blood chap, you Bee—not a saint, not even a level-headed old slow-coach like yourself, without any thing like real deep feeling. And your wife loves me, d'you understand, Cranleigh? It's damned hard on you, perhaps, but there it in—a sort of •Fate,1 you see. The pity 01 it is we didn't all find out before you married h...
III [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 30 April 1914
Someone in the flat 'below was play ing a violin, exquisitely, tenderly, and the long-drawn notes of "Salut d'Am our" came floating up. "Does anything, even 'playing the game,' matter in a case like yours and mine?" asked Curtis. "I—oh, I don't know," she mur mured weakly. "I—I've alwayB 'play ed the game,' Dick; and pow—it's so madly difficult. He has 'been good to me." "Good!" echoed her companion, hia voice tense with ipassion. "D'you think that's love? - If he loved you, or you him, I might have gone away and said nothing. But in your heart of hearts you must know it's me yau love. And to a -woman like you, isn't love—love, I say—the only thing that matters?" She shivered. "John," he went on—and Ms tone was contemptuous almost—"is a good sort. And"—for a second the test in him rose—"it's because he's ibeen my pal that I've held back as long as this, but he's a good deal to iblame himself, for all the world would say, my dear, that he has simply thrust matters in to my hands; and...
II. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 30 April 1914
n. The dusk had fallen some time, and had almost turned to decided dark ness, as Cranleigh's wife stood by the open studio -window, waiting for Cur tis to come up to dinner. She hated having her meals alone, and since her husband's departure Dick and she usually dined together, either at home or out at a restaurant. They had been very pleasant, all those little tete-a-tete meals, and the little jaunts that had been the order of things dur ing this past two monhs of Cranleigh's absence. And it was wonderful,- now she came to think of it, how quickly the time had passed. Two days later her husband 'would foe hack—dear, good-natured, easy-going "old John. And Dick—to-morrow Dick would be gone. She wondered curiously, as she leaned her arms on the window-sill, watching the twinkling lights on the river, that turn it iby night into a' won derful enchanted land, full of mystery and fascination, just why he was go ing off to Algiers on this trip; and she realised with somewhat startling su...
Eccentric Judges. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 30 April 1914
Eccentric Judges. j Mr. Ure has had some eccentric j predecessors on the Scottish Bench. 1 The more eccentric of all was Lord j Eskgrove. Condemning a tailor to: death for murdering a Foldier, Lord j Eskgrove remarked: "Not only did you murder him, j whereby he was bereaved of life; but you did thrust, or push, or pierce, . or project, or propel the lethal wea pon through his regimental breeches, j which were His Majesty's." Sentencing two criminals for house breaking with violence, after detail-' ing the way they attacked the per- 1 sons of the house, Eskgrove went on: I "All this you did, God preserve us! Just as they were sitting down to din ner!" I
Falsely Accused. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 30 April 1914
Falsely Accused. A benevolent old gentleman was walking in tlie park when the loud sobs of a little girl arrested him. "What is the matter, my child?" he asked. "Boo, hoo, lioo! I've lost my penny!" cried the little girl. The benevolent old gentleman drew a penny from his pocket, and, extend ing it, he said with a beatificfemile: "Here's your penny, my d&J-Mild. And now stop crying." The little girl, instead of thanking the benevolent old gentleman grate fully, stamped her foot and said with scornfully flashing eyes: "Oh, you wicked old man, you had my penny all the time!"
WINDMILL. WIRELESS. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 30 April 1914
WINDMILL. WIRELESS. Holland is so flat that the wind mills with which it is studded are landmarks that can he seen for miles. So for centuries the windmill arms have been used as convenient signals. Births, deaths and marriages are often announced by this method in stead of by newspaper. The whole neighborhood knows that there has been a birth in the miller's family if the arms are seen in the po sition of a narow capital X, and with ! the two upper sails unfurled. II the miller is being married, the arms form a broader X, with all the sails unfurled.' A death in the miller's family is announced by the wheel being turned till the arms form an upright cross, with all the sails unfurled. When this signal is shown all the other mills of the region show their sympathy by following suit. The code of windmill "wireless" is quite a lengthy one. The doctor can. be called, ah appointment postponed,, and;the message read iftUes away. v.
CROPS FOR FODDER. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 30 April 1914
CROPS FOR FODDER. The time seems opportune to di rect the attention of farmers to the necessity of planting fodder crops, and for their subsequent conservation as a provision for stock and feed dur ing' the winter. The weather this season has been very dry, and in al most every district absence of rain has been severely felt. . The man who dees not take this wise precaution of providing winter feed will have a grim realisation of his lack of forethought when he finds his dairy herd, aati other stock, languishing for the food which Nature withholds during her unpropitious seasons. It is, however, quite within the pro vince of the farmer to conserve suffi cient fodder for his stock to tide over the winter. There are so many ex amples of the splendid results from silos that it is hard to conceive why the practice of making silage has not become more general throughout the State. When we have the managers of but ter and cheese factories reporting "the satisfactory increase of milk suppl...
THE INTERVENTION OF JOHN CHUMLEY. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 30 April 1914
THE INTERVENTION OF JOHN CHUMLEY. By John J. Armstrong. John Chumley lowered his sixpenny thriller as the tired-looking woman en tered his sitting-room, and regarded her with a smile on his broad red lace. Seated in a remarkably easy chair, with slippers and his oldest jacket on, pipe well going, and a glass o£ what he termed "comfort" to his hand, John, 011 this Christmas Eve, would have admitted that he was doing very well. He was getting to the age when material comforts are appreciated. "Well, most excellent, Mrs. Moggs!" he said, cheerily. "Quite ready for Christmas?" "Christmas don't mean much to me these times," returned the thin-faced landlady. "Things wus dift'rent when lie wus alive. Now, with my lad iu India, it'll be quiet enough. I got an invite this uiovniu.' from my sister Pern, in Plarstow but I'm sendin' her a postcard." "Why not go and have a romp?" suggested John. "And my best gentleman left here on his own!" "Nonsense!" protested John, with his jolly laugh. "As i...
FLOCK MANAGEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 30 April 1914
FLOCK MANAGEMENT. If strong, healthy and vigorous lambs are wanted, extra care must be given to the ewe flock from time of mating to time of lambing. During this time the ewes should be steadily gaining in flesh. It is not desirable that the ewe flock after mating should .ever have to become the scavengers of the farm; that business should be left for store sheep. The ewe flock is too valuable for that work, for it is from this flock that the future feeding lamb is obtained. One often hears of heavy losses be ing experienced by sheep breeders through' ewes being frightened by dogs and other causes, and this brings to mind reasons that ought to be up permost in the minds of all those who have charge of lambing ewes. Among them there Is one precaution that should never be absent, and that is this: That the ewe flock should never bo allowed to be rushed by the shep herd's dog, nor should it be hurried when being driven, nor under any cir cumstances should it be given an opportunity to ...

ARGENTINA'S WHEAT INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 30 April 1914
ARGENTINA'S WHEAT INDUSTRY. Argentina, inspite of poor market facilities and a backward farming po pulation, already ranks third among the three wheat-exporting countries of the world. Its area devoted to wheat cultivation has doubled during the past ten years, and is three times as large as it was only fifteen years ago. There is every prospect, too, of a still greater advance in the near future. Owing to conditions of cli mate and soil, Argentina cannot, it would seem, enter into serious com petition with Canada in the produc tion of "strong" wheat. Barleta wheat, originally brought from Italy, forms about 70 per cent, of the crop, and Russian wheat 20 per cent., while the remaining 10 per cent would in clude various classes of wheat, tome of which are grown specially for mak ing macaroni. In a general way, Ar gentine wheats are classed in the in ternational markets as intermediate in character between the soft white wheats ot Australia and the Pacific Coast, and the herd red whea...
THE TEST. STORY OF A WOMAN'S AWAKENING. I. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 30 April 1914
THE TEST. STORY OF A WOMAN'S AWAKENING. By Constance Enne. I. Cranleigh, on hie side of the break ! fast table, looked up witn a sudden I exclamation of dismay from the letter he was reading—a ibig, official-looking document. "Little woman," he said, regret fully, watching. his wife's face, "I'va got to leave you." She put down a morsel o£ toast and stared at him in pretty consternation. "Leave me?" she echoed. Then she flashed all the armor of her dimpling smile at him. "Tired o£ me at last, John?" she asked lightly. .Be laid a strong-looking brown hand over one of hers as an answer to her query. "I'm afraid it's going to be more than the usual few days this time. Midge," he said; "and I can't take you out with me—Cairo. It meanB a couple of months, I expect. 'The Chief"—he turned to the big, import ant-looking sheet again, headed Down ing-street—"The Chief says I'm to hold myself in readiness to start to day, if necessary." Her 'brow puckered into a frown.' "But I don't see in the...

A LITTLE NATURE TALK. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 30 April 1914
A LITTLE NATURE TALK. Not only naturalists, but everyone who lias watched ants has wondered how they find their way to and from their nests. A French naturalist, M. Cornetz, who watched ants in Algeria, tells the results of his observations. The ant, he says, in its outward jour ney, proceeds throughout in the di rection initially chosen; on its return the insect places its body at the same angle, and walks in the opposite di rection. The body of the ant would, there fore, act as a kind of compass needle. If an ant is caught at the nest and transported to a point some yards distant the insect is quite incapable of finding its way back. It runs around on the ground until it accidentally comes across the entrance to the bur row. The , case is quite different if an ant is allowed to find its way to a distance unmolested. On leaving the nest it places itself in a certain direction, and holds the same, no matter what obstacles it may meet en route, and no matter what side tracks it may o...
DICKENS' BEARD. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 30 April 1914
DICKENS' BEARD. - On December 29, 1855, the men of the French "Army of the Orient"— the Crimean veterans who had storm- • e'J the Alma heights aide by side with the British troops, who had come to the timely assistance of the redcoats a'- Inkermann, and had captured the great Malakhoff fortress, tlio key of Sebastopol—were passed in reviesv by the French Emperor in the Place Ven dome. Two interesting features mark ed this memorable parade—which, by the way, one may see faithfully repro duced in miniature at the Paris "Army Museum." One was the presence of the sur vivors of Napoleon I.'s Imperial Guard, the heroes of Austerlitz and Wagram, of Jena and Waterloo. Bent and shrunken in their quaint, old-fashion ea uniforms, they were appropriately grouped around the base of the Ven dome Column, the lofty shaft of bronze —sculptured with scenes of battle, cast by the Emperor's decree from the cannon his soldiers had captured from their foes. Less conspicuous, but equally note worthy, was ...
The Last Lap. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 30 April 1914
The Last Lap. A Newcastle man wan blessed with a large family of daughters, now grown to marriageable age. One evening he walked into his drawing room and surprised his second daugh ter, sitting on the lap of a young fel low. The old gentleman did not al low his equanimity to be disturbed. He simply remarked: "Ah, Lucy, I see your race for a husband is nearly over." "What makes you say that, papa?" asked the girl, blushing painfully. "You seem to be on the last lap," chortled the old gentleman. The chairman at a journalists' din ner the other day told the following story:— "I met a newspaper man to-day whc came to Collins-street twenty years ago with exactly twenty-five sb.'IIingf, in his pocket. He is now worth forty thousand pounds. He owes that entirely to his own ability and ei.ergy, combined with good health and a high code of ethics, and the fact that a relative died and left hi:n with thirty-nine thousand nine-, hiindiw and ninety-eight pounds."
