THE NEW GRAMOPHONE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 26 September 1914
THi NEW GRAMOPHONE. Mrs. Waddle was in quite a state of excitement when the new gramo phone arrived and thinking to give the parrot a surprise, she started the instrument off with " Rocked in the Cradle of the Deep,". as sung by Mr. Waddle in his most approved draw ing-rcc·n fashion. ,3t the very irst note Polly opened her eyse in surprise, and then flew to her perch, where she focked her self to and fro in deep and speechless astonishment, while the mnachine ground out the air. " There, Polly," said Mrs. Waddle, -.hen the song had come to an end. ' What do you think of that ?" "My word," shrieked the old bird ,is head on one side, and w king riclldly, " my word, my worw, my lord ! We've got the old masi boxed this time and no mistake."
In the Realms of Antiquity. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 26 September 1914
In the Realms of Antiquity. (BY a Banker). To thos' to whom the mighty past presents greater attractions than the less refined and classic utilitarianism of the present day, Athens, the cradle of aesthetic architecture, and the birthplace of chaste and graceful statuary and ornate design, far surpasses any other capital of Europe in interest and in real fascination. Here the visitor is in the midst of .- -h'c-~ t tlloc- creations of -man wh;ch the world has ever--seen not massive and vast, as the stupen dous pyramids of Egypt ; not go: g 2ously embellished with all iarnher of precious stones and ove laid with solid gold as Solo mon's temple at Jerusalem; not even decorated with- elaborate mosaics as some of the o'd Roman n, asterpiecei of structural art, but erections of the supremest and the most exquisite refinement and ele gance of design. First, ascending to the summit of the Acropolis, a conical hill near the centre of the city, the visitor is at once transferred into the realm...

Original Poetry. OUR HEROES. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 26 September 1914
Original Poetry. OUR HEROES. What though yon ranc'rous Teuton lifts. His braggart voice and boasts, He yet shall sheath his treach'rous sword Before our allied hosts. Our heroes soon will let him know " That Britons never yield; The God of heroes is their strength, Omnipotence their shield. Like rocks, defiant, they will stand Before the despot's guns; Heroes and martyrs ne'er they'll quail They're sons of Briton's sons. On Afric's war-swept fields they fought, Aye, fought until they fell; Till the smoke-wreathed veldts around them flamed l•ike battlefields of hell. They'll give their brave hearts' priceless blood Shout their last battle cry. Surrender? that they never will; They'll fight, they'll win, or die For homes and altars, and as well For each beloved one's sake; Their breasts they'll give as bulwarks strong, Through which no foe can break. From war's fierce hell some will return, But some, alas ! will fall, And over them, sad mother earth Will weave her emerald pall; And th...

Sunday Corner. Misinterpretation. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 26 September 1914
Sunday Corner. Misinterpretation. Life is full of misinterpretations. Many of us have wrong opinions of others. We think they do not care for us when they really do. We imagine they are angry at us when there is not a shade of un kind feeling in their heart. We misinterpret their acts. Many a time things that offend us, if we but understood the motive that prompted them and the true love that is in them, would appear really beautiful in our eyes. We ought to guard continually against these misinterpretations. They do wrong to others. They rob our own hearts of peace. ' Love thinketh no evil.' Let us be sure always that we see an act in its proper light.
PUBLICATIONS. Dr Fitchett on the War. A Masterly Study. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 26 September 1914
PUBLICATIONS. Dr Fitchett on the War. A Masterly Study. 'Life's' Second War Number (Oc tober issue). contaifis many good and timely things. The chief attraction, among many war features, is a masterly study of the war by Dr W. H. Fitchett, the author of 'Deeds That Won the Empire.' Under the general title of ' The War of All the Centuries,' Dr Fitchett writes three separate articles-one on ' The Forces Behind the War;' a second on 'The Scale of the War and its Strategy;' and a third on ' The Study of the Actual Fighting.' On themes such as these -Dr Fitchett writes with telling effect-for he has three times visited the scene of the present war, and draws on a wide know ledge of history won in writing many popular and patriotic books. The October issue under review also contains the second part of ' Mawson's Own Story,' of which 'Life' has secured the exclusive rights--as well as several other excellent war articles.

WITHIN THE CAMP. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 26 September 1914
WITHIN THECAMP. (By B41). Without. transgressing the laws of defence propriety, and in no way desiring to do so, . I am privileged to give expression to a few passing ideas gained whilst with my regi ment in camp. In the first place, I have appre ciated my change of life during the past couple of weeks. From the office desk to camp routine has been an experience. Whilst I have found it not altogether distasteful, I am quite concluded that a mili tary life would not be my choice. Perhaps it is that I have not been used to the rougher and sterner side of life; it, at any rate, would, as I say, not he my choosing. I have no fault whatever to find with those in higher grade than my self, neither have the 'men' of the regiment disregarded me. We get along splendidly, and I am sure the experience is the best troops have had. Some of us, I know, have been a little impatient with ordinary things, one of which I may as well mention. I allude to the food served. There has been such- a repetit...

(ALL RIGHTB RESERVED.) THE MESHES OF FATE. 0 R, THE CURSE OF THE BLUE DIAMONDS. By Hedley Richards, Author of "The Mine Master's Heir," "Time, the Avenger," etc., etc. PART 10. CHAPTER XVIII.-(Continued. Therese sat looking at the empty drawer in amazement; then she shut and locked it, but her resolution was formed. She would not on any account inquire about or admit that she had lost a cloak; and as it was one she had seldom worn, it was not likely that it would get her into any trouble. But in spite of reasoning thus she was decidedly dineasy, and there was an anxious feverishness in her manner that did not escape her grandmother's eye. The following morning the inquest on the body of Brian Fitzpatrick was held in the dining room at the Red House. It was a large room with a big bow-window facing over a smooth, velvety lawn, and had been handsomely furnished, ready for the new-mAeitree -ot--the_ house._ It was sigular that the first time it was used should. be to hold an inquiry re...

-.; BOBacIc " .D. Formerly all the boraci4 or botrk acid of commerce wa obtained from borax by heating it with calcinem ferrous sulphate in closed eseels, whereby sodotoric acid was formed, and boracic acid wes carried on with the watery vapours, which eecaped. This was a long and tedious pro. tess, and not much progres was made until it was discovered that boracic acid could be obtained fron the boil~g springs and jets of ve' pour in Tuscany. Long after the d covery of barade acid in these springs, the brilliant idea struck the physicist as ware as the chemist to mnploy the heat of the natural steam jets.

A NEW ERA IN THE FAR EAST. The Fight for Commercial Supremacy. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 3 October 1914
A NEW ERA IN THE FAR EAST. -+--------- The Fight for Commercial Supremacy. Mr. T. F. Millard's study of the Far East, contained in his book, "America and the Far' Eastern Ques tion," recently published in New York is dominated by two opposite notes, pessimism and a story of progress. He regards the situation, that has arisen since the close of the Russian war with alarm ; the Japanese commercial policy in Manchuria *is creating a situation whith may re sult in war between Japan and America ; he has nothing but criti cism for the existing state of affairs in Korea; he is convinced that Ja pan aims at the domination of China. And yet, despite, all this, he has to tell of world advance. A new Asia has arisen, an Asia growing daily more and more conscious of her own strength. MUKDEN. Take, for example, his description of Mukden. Ten years ago few white men knew the ancient capital of the Manchu kings. In 1900 white refugees were tortured to death in its central square amid indescribable...
THE LOSS OF ETIQUETTE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 3 October 1914
THE LOSS OF ETIQUETTE. Once upon a time in PFngland no young girl would have dared to ac cept as much as a packet of choco lates or a posy from a young man. Now he may send her confectioner'$ or a florest's shop, his motor-car,, and his box at the opera. So much have we taken from America. Never theless the privileges of liberty carry their risks. The increased liberty of the one sex reacts upon the other, and helps to make breaches in the ramparts. There is often very little distinc tion between the habits and manners of the two sexes. They talk the same lingo, employ the same ideas, and have the same sports and pas times. How is it practicable to maintain an irreproachable system of etiquette between such ? The modern young man takes his cue from the modern young woman, and joins her in ignrc^ng her femininity. She's a "jolly good sort," a "nice chap," and ciL-r horrors in slang. The fact is that we must invest our sexual relations with a certain aloof ness and reserve, at least w...
