"JACK ROBINSON." [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 19 September 1914
"JACK ROBINSON." Few people who use the phrase are aware that "Jack Robinson" was a real person. As a politician John Robinson was a great favourite with George III. His political career was a long one, for he was a member for Harwich during twenty-six years, being on one occasion bitterly attacked by Sheridan, who, denouncing bridery and its. instigators, replied to the cries of "Name, name," by pointing - to Ro;binson on the Treasury Bench, exclaiming at the same time: "Yes, I could name him as soon as I could say Jacla Robinson," and thus originated the saying still cur rent. Lmbour is GoCd's edue8tion.-?ner son. "Pa, what is the race problem ?" "Picking winers." 1940.
THE WORLD'S WEALTHIEST MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 19 September 1914
THE WORLD'S WEALTHIEST MAN. The Czar of Russia is the wealthi est man in all the world, far richer /even than John D. Rockefeller or any of the Rothschilds. His .civil list alone amounts to something like *,?,500,000 a year, and more than a half of this is available for his own private use. In addition, the Czar owns land in European Russia equal in area to the whole of Ireland, and derives from it the colossal revenue of £5,000,000 per annum. And then he also owns land in Siberia which, even in its present undeveloped state brings him in well over £1,000,000 a year. His annual income, including the interest on his savings, has been ·ee tinated at £7,500,000. Seeing, therefore, that tlhe Czar puts aside every year a large sum of money for each of his four daughters the prince who contracts a marriage in that quarter is likely to do ex tremely well for himself from a worldly point of view.
VALUE OF THE SCALE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 26 September 1914
VALUE OF THE SCALE. Farmers are extremely lax in keep ing any kind of accounts. It might be thought that self-interest would dictate that they should know ex= actly the profits -they make each year. Yet to ascertain this it is es sential that there be a taking of stock once a year; and we will guarantee that there is hardly one farmer out of any hundred who does this. Dairy farmers are equally lax, in not knowing what their cows do in the way of milk or butter produc tion, in not knowing the cost of feed, or how much each cow con sumes per day. It seems a very difficult matter to get dairymen to appreciate the fact that dairying is a manufacturing business ; and that to make' money at it, it is first necessary to know exactly what each item costs, thus practicing economies where needed. Until the cost of -production is known, it is impossible to curtail or lop off the unprofitable items. It is very evident that one of the first things that must be done is to weigh the milk of each c...
THE FARM AND DAIRY. GRAZING LUCERNE. THE DANGER OF BLOAT. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 26 September 1914
THE FARM AND DAIRY. GRAZING LUCERNE. THE DANGER OF BLOAT. In view of the increased use. of this splendid fodder plant, the opin ion of Mr. Alexander, the manager of a large estate near Inverell, in New South Wales (where 15 silos are in use), on the danger of cattle graz ing on lucerne, is worth noting. He holds that the feeding off of lu cerne by stock is always attended. with a certain amount of risk of loss by tympanitis or bloat. In fact, dur ing certain periods of the plant's growth its action on the cow is so active and virulent as to resemble prussic acid poisoning of cattle fed on immature sorghum. A remarkable thing about it is the fact that this extreme effect is pro duced. for perhaps only two or three days in the plant's growth, which explains why cattle geazing in one paddock may suffer badly from bloat while those in the next may be im mune, although the lucerne appears to be in exactly the same stage of growth in both. The manager be lieves that the importance of luce...

WANDERING CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 26 September 1914
WANDERING CHURCH. During the floods in Ohio and the neighbouring States of the Middle West a wooden church, which had been washed from its foundations, was deposited on an island in the Ohio River. There was nothing to show where the church had come from or the de nomination of the people who had worshipped` in it. It had a belfry with a bell weighing about half a ton, and during its curious unpiloted voyage the structure had suffered lit tle damage. The inhabitants of the township in which it landed had had their own church destroyed by the waters. They gladly accepted the gift of the river, hastened to dig a foundation on a desirable site, and moved, the church to it. If the, original congre gation learns of its whereabouts and attempts' to claim the church some curious legal entanglements may arise. In the meantime, the church is do ing proper duty in housing a congre gation every Sunday, although per haps the congregation might be con sidered somewhat heretical by the former wor...

(ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.) THE MESHES OF FATE. ----- O R, THE CURSE OF THE BLUE DIAMONDS. *. -- -e - By Hedley Richards, Author of "The Mine Master's Heir," "Time, the Avenger," etc., .etc. PART 9. CHAPTER XVI.-(Continued.) Meanwhile Dr. Fitzpatricl had walked rapidly through the park, thinking what a hash he had made of matters. He had lost Meg through his own carelessness and undue haste to seize the riches that dazzled him, and he swore at himself. But was it too late ? He could still make terms with Hetherington. It would be useless to ask him to ac knowledge his marriage with Meg's mother, but he could compel him to give him half the diamonds and the dowry that Pat was to have had. The world need never know the truth and for his silence Josh Hetherington o would give half of what he was worth. They could say Pat. had changed her mind at the eleventh hour. He knew she would be glad to -.--be rid of him. Yes, he would go to Mount House and see Meg at once. It was little more than fiv...

SOME HEALTH PROVERBS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 26 September 1914
SOME HEALTH PROVERBS, "An open window is better than an open grave." "Warm rooms have killed more peo ple than ever froze to death." "Wire screens in the windows may keep crape from the door." "A. fly in the milk often means a member of the family in the grave." "If some people were as much afraid of flies as they are of bad water,, there would be less typhOid." "When you see a child looking like an angel, do not kiss it; you might make a real angel out of it." It i possible to go wrong in many ways; but we can go right in one way only.-Aristotle. To suffer and be strong is not easy, but courage grows with use. To sit on a sweetheart's knee is a practice sanctioned by law, ancient tradition, and modern uese:--Judge Adams.
AN APPEAL FOR HELP. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 26 September 1914
AN APPEAL FOR HELP.. To the Editor. SIR,-Allow me to bring before your many readers a most deserving case, which should appeal to all sporting people in this town and district. A fund has been started in Geelong for the sup port of the widow and family of the late Mr T.. Davis, so well known here in sporting circles. There should be a host of sportsmen here ready to respond to this appeal. He was an ideal sportsman and always called 'the king of Bellarine umpires.' There is no one who does not know something of the splendid exhibitions of umpiring by him on our local ground. He has left a widow and seven children, the eldest only 13. There is a property obligation to be met. The late Mr Davis acquired a humble cottage, and a few months before his d -ath paid a deposit on a larger home required for the comfort of his children. One -of the purposes of this appeal is to secure re lease from this investment and devote the balance of the complete fund to the purchase of a home suited to ...
A GOOD CATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 26 September 1914
A GOOD CATCH. The latest stock exchange catch is muriously and strangely effective and because of the amusement it af fords is worth trying on a friend who has not yet read this. A bro ker, putting three half-crowns on the palm of his hand, says to a jobber, "Now, look here, how many coins do you see ?" "Three," replies the jobber, after careful consideration. "Without casting any aspersion on your veracity," rejoins the broker, "I say there are four. . Well, look here," he continues, re-arrang-. ing the coins, "how many are there now ?" "Three," stoutly declares the jobber, after assuring himself that there has been no palming. "I say there are four," maintains the broker. "Will you give a guinea to the unemployed fund if I'm wrong ?" "'No, I won't ; can't afford it." "All right," says the broker, pocketing the coins, "it's off, then." This is naturally too much for the cur iosity of the jobber. "Well, go on; what's the trick ?" he says. The three coins are again produced and caref...
WHENCE THE WHISTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 26 September 1914
WHENCE THE WHISITLE. ------+--- Seventy-five years ago the steam whistle, which is metaphorically Yhrie]=ing the ears .off excursion ists on holiday bent, was unknown. In those days engine-drivers were provided with a small tin horn, which they blew as occasion demand ed. Apparently, however, they did not always blow loud enough, for in 1833, despite the warning blast, a train ran down a farmer's cart, and utterly destroyed one thousand eggs, a hundred pounds of butter, two horses, the vehicle, and the dri ver. When the bill for damages was presented to the railway com pany the managing director sent for George Stephenson. Stephenson pondered. Then he •visited a musical instrument maker, with the result that he constructed a horn which screeched most ter ribly when blown by steam. And successive generations have toned that horn down into the familiar whistle of to-day.
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 26 September 1914
THE behavior and general deport ment ,of our young soldiers when on leave (usually at night) is favorably commented on. Seldom is there anything in their conduct out of the ordinary. Although"' off duty' temporarily, the laws of citizenship are in no way infringed. There is, of course, the usual buoy ancy of spirit, which everyone de lights in with the youmngman, when a small company may indulge in a little exuberance whilst singing the refrain of the latest topical song, with mouth organ accompaniment, but seldom anything vulgar or pro fane. It may be said by some that there should not be, which would be correct; but it must be conceived that these young men are, as soldiers for the time;, under restraint, dis ciplined to rigidly obey and observe commands, and when on leave for a couple of hours in the evening, feel that instructions have for the time been withdrawn, and they are virtually themselves again, though ever remembering they are soldiers. Many of the young men are from t...
ADVENTURE OF A BABY BOY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 26 September 1914
ADVENTURE OF A BABY BOY. A person who lived some years in South Africa tells the following story : The infant son of one of the Dutch settlers had strayed away. After some time a search-party dis covered little footprints leading in the direction of the bush. Following up these, they came upon a large open space, at the farther side of which they discovered the object of their search sitting hugging a little wooden doll and munching a piece of bread-and-butter. Before they could make their way through the thick, tangled under growth, a large lion sprang into the clearing. The little boy, far from being frightened, ran to meet the' lion, holding up the bread-and-but ter, and said, "Take a bite, dog gie." The father stood powerless to move or speak through fear, expect ing each instant to see the child orushed under the lion's paw ; but instead of doing as he dreaded, the lion turned himself over and lay on his back at the child's feet, look ing up in his face as a cat would do at pla...

TROUBLE IN CONVERTING THE ISLAND OF LAGILOLO. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 26 September 1914
,ROUBLE IN CONVERTING THE ISLAND OF LAGILOLO. "Yes," said the beachcomber, "we 've had a lot of trouble in convertin' our island. One misfortune and an other happened to the missionaries by unforseen circumstances. Of course, I'm only speakin' of events that took place since I've been king of the Island. It was in 1865 on the ship Gineral Jackson that I was put in an open boat on the Pacific Ocean, through the schemin' of the Rev. James McBeaser. I was a circus clown and a Baptis'. The ship had stormy weather, got delayed, and begun to run out of water and food. The Rev. James McBeaser was a board, goin' to the islands as a mis sionary-a Sandemanian missionary. He organised a revival, and they all came into it but me, which I couldn't do, as a Baptis'. We kept on havin' bad weather, and he told the crew that we couldn't expect good weather as long as there was anybody on the ship that wouldn't jine the revival. That turned the sailors against me, and when he advised 'em to turn me a...

WON THE KETTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 26 September 1914
WON THE KE'TTIir A bishop was visiting done hitdds In a well-known mining district. On entefing one of t;h houses he saw, to' his great duiprise a number of men seated in a circle on the floor, in the middle of which was a bright copper kettle. Being much interested in workmen and their ways, he inquired of one of the men what was going on. "We're trying," said the miner, "to see who can tell the biggest lie, and the kettle will be presented to the man who tells it." The bishop, greatly shocked, ex claimed, "Why, my good man, I never told a lie in my life." The miners, thinking that his lord ship was competing for the prize, :inanimously cried, "Give 'im th' ket. tle 1"
