The power of imagination is strongly illustrated in the following ghost story One.of, tho most famous murder cases in Australia was discovered by the ghost of tho murdered mau sitting on the rail of a dam into which his body had been thrown. Numberless people 'Saw it, and tho crime was duly brought home. Years after a dying man, making his confession, said that he invented the ghost. He wit nessed the crime; but was threatened with death if he divulged it, as he wished to, and tho only way lie saw out of tho impasse was to' affect to see tho ghost where tlie body would bo found. As soon as lie started the story, such is the power of nervousness that numer ous othor people began to see it, until its fame readied such dimensions that a search was made and tile body found, and tlio murderers brought to justico.

A STRANGE STORY. The following remarkable story lias just been published in an English paper: Some years ago a burglary was attempt ed at Erdington. A lady who lived by herself, and was well known as a philan thropist, had just retired to her room shortly before midnight, and found a man under the bed. She feared to return lest the man should intercept her,, and to ? gain time she sat down and took her liible.

ILLUMINATED SHARKS OF THE OCEAN DEPTHS. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 11 March 1911

ILLXTMINATED SHAKES OF THE OCEAN DEPTHS; With a tempcratui'o always close to freezing point, a motionless fluid (at all events, there is no perceptible disturb ance of the water), and a pressure which, at a depth of three miles, is over two tons to the square inch, the conditions in the ocean depths are suitable only to forms of life which would be inipossiblo at tlio surface. Tims it is not surprising to find that the fishes do not in the least resemble any of the species familiar to us. Again, a6 a rule,' they are absolutely black; thoy nro almost incredibly ferocious: their bones are for the most part cartilaginous (like gristle), so as to yield to the pres sure to which they are subjected, their jaws in many instances are like tliose of sorpents, enabling them to swallow ani mals much larger than themselves; and the sharks of the abysmal depths, some of whioh are of enormous size, are shap ed like eels. But, beyond, question, the most remarkable thing about them is the illuminat...

TURNING THE TABLES. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 11 March 1911

TURNING THE TABLES. Undor the thin disguise of harmless fun, many an unpardonably rude prank is played upon newly-married couples. It is refreshing; to hear of an occasional instance in which the "joke" re-acts oil the joker. A friend of mine and his bride, who had just been married in a provincial town, were starting on their wedding journey.' They had managed to reach the train in safety, despite the showers of- confetti and old shoes. Just as they had taken their seats in tho corridor-train, one of the bride groom's chums came hastily in to bid him good-bye. As the young husband extend ed liis hand tho friend snapped a handcuff round Lis wrist. The groom had been suspecting a trick of some kind, and'before tlip practical j<>ker could play a similar trick on the bridi?, lio found <the; oth<jr handcuff snap ped round liis own wist. Ho was chained to the happy bridegroom' himself. ; "That's a good 6ne against me, Harry," lie said, with a sickly-ki...

Officers and men, with one solitary exception, took no more no tice of these dull little stones than they would of macadamised flints at liome. One man, however, had, before enlist ing, been at the 'South African diamond inines, and he suspected that tho trashy little pebbles wore of greater value than they seemed. Accordingly, whenever ho had tho chance he would gather a hand ful, being well laughed at by tho rest of us, who half suspected that the fierce sun of the Soudan had affected our com panion's wits.

DON'T SPOIL THE CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 11 March 1911

DON'T'SPOIL THE CHILDREN. Parents often wonder why their child ren ;uo more or less failures when they grow up. Perhaps this from a great nineteenth century philosopher will en lighten them, but it is given for the bet ter reason that it may servo as a. pointer to others: Herbert Spencer says that every crea ture is happy when ho is fully using his powers. 'L'o liavo something to do that iil the doing broadens and develops our powers, is the only way to bo Ivappy. Parents so often try to shield their child ren by doing crerythinp for thom. What a mistake it is. It is just such children who grow \ip indifferent, self-sufficient, and morally lazy. By individual effort alone the character grows, and in the act of-growth only it is possiblo to know contentment. To enjoy this growth it is necessary to have some keen interests in your life, whatever they may bo.

It appears that Captain. Foster and his wife and three friends . went, out from Proviricetown to see the mackerel fisher men at work'. The Kate Max well passed the mackerel - fleet, when suddenly the black shining backs of whales appeared in'every direction, churning the water into foam. Some whore about 100 whales were seen, and Captain Foster could hardly believe his eyes, for whales had not been so«n in such numbers in that locality for a generation. Mrs. Foster clapped her hands with oxcitement, and the captain was wishing he had brought a harpoon with him, when he suddenly remembered that he had a sword-fish iron, with keg and lino on board. He caught lip the weapon from under the rail, and as one of the largest whales in the school came swim ming by tho boat's side the captain hurled tho ir...
