LIVING WITHOUT AIR OR FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 27 March 1914

LIVING WITHOUT AIR OR FOOD. According to Macdonald, a Scotch naturalist of wide repute, the turtle is the strangest of all living things and the most unfathomable. He can live in the water as well as out of it, and can seemingly go for indefinite lengths of time without air or food or light. He is neither fish nor flesh nor fowl, and yet he has the characteristics of all three. As for his eating, it seems quite superflo'uous, for he can remain shut up in a barrel for a number of weeks and emerge at the end of the time apparently none the worse for the lack of food and light and air. >The baby turtle seems also just as indifferent to its surroundings as its parents are. As soon as it comes forth from its egg it scuttles off to the sea. It has no one to teach or guide it. In its brain seems implanted the idea that until its armor becomes hard it has no defence against hungry fish, and so it seeks shelter in gulf weed and feeds unmolested until its armor gets hard. By the time it we...

AFTER WAITING FORTY-SEVEN YEARS [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 27 March 1914

AFTER WAITING FORTY-SEVEN YEARS Damages of £ 500 for breach of pro mise are claimed by Miss Emma Ma | haney, aged sixty-seven, from Mr. John Wolf, aged seventy-seven, a Civil War j veteran, in a suit she has brought at Paterson, New Jersey. Miss Mahaney says that the last she saw of her fiance was in 1863 as he was leaving for the Civil War. She never married, believing that some day the sweetheart of her youthful days would return to claim her. Three years ago, forty-seven years after her last meeting with him, she j was overjoyed to receive a letter from Mr. Wolf, who informed her that he had now retired from business with a fortune. A correspondence ensued in which the spinster alleges the vet eran wooed her with all the ardor ■which characterised him before the •war, and finally he proposed mar riage. She made all the preparations for the ceremony at great expense. When everything was ready Mr. Wolf wrote saying that the marriage could never take place. Miss Mahaney bases her cl...

WIT AND WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 27 March 1914

WIT AND WISDOM. .The' world seldom watches a man when, lie is doing good. Too many strings to a how will never make a marriage tie. A man need not fear competition when he is in love with himself. People with 6mall minds seldom have occasion to change them. A contented mind may be a feast, •but feasts are indigestible things. Many a man in the swim finds it difficult to keep his head above water. If you want work well done, select a ibusy man—the other kind has no time. ■ The folly of love is insecurity; peo ple are always either falling in or out of it. Although otherwise stingy, a man may he willing to lend a helping hand to himself. About two-thirds of the average man's laughter is inspired by his own alleged wit. Love makes the world go round— perhaps that is why the young folk are so giddy. The man that a woman says she does not care for is generally the one she cries over. The telephone girl may truthfully say that she is connected with the best families. Instinct is now descr...

III. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 27 March 1914

III. Meanwhile there was Stranraer Harbor at dusk and a]l its terrors. Hugh told her at sunset just what he meant to do, and she . listened without protest. His own motor car would be waiting for them at Stran raer; his own launch would take them ashore. They know me here," he said, there will be no trouble. If your old sailorman has not been able to I hold his tongue, I do not suppose the! cackle of it has travelled so far. 'We, shall go ashore when it is dark and travel all night to Aberfeldy. It will be time enough when we get there ,or sister and me to decide wha* is the best thing to be done." She looked up quickly at the word sister. "Do you think that I shall be able to abide by your decision?" she ask ed him—a vague question whose meaning he understood. Oh, he said, "Geraldine is one ot the best little women in the world; she doesn't always seem to be, but that's her manner. As I am her principal divinity I shall be very much surprised if she does not share my views. The gre...

II. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 27 March 1914

II. Leila watched the distant land with a woman's eyes which were full of questioning. The long day on board the Chris tabel had brought with it a meas ure of reason which would now be sifted with a woman's logic.. She had fled from Newcastle in an hour of mad panic.. Her only desire had been to save the child from the ma chinations of those -whom she be lieved to be her enemies. Just as when she staked all upon Desdy's liberty, when she had defied the worst threats of the law and had entered into a conspiracy from which she must emerge a criminal, so in Ireland had she cared nothing for any of the consequences from which might attend an immediate and a successful flight.. Despair had car ried her to the Christabel as to the only haven the night could show her. Here to-day she reckoned with the trouble and asked herself what she had done. Surely now she was an outcast from the world! She had little money, and a montli must pass be fore the trustees would send her the miserable pitta...

ROUND THE WORLD AFTER A HUSBAND. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 27 March 1914

ROUND THE WORLD AFTER A HUSBAND. Regretting an engagement into which he had entered, a young Ger man named Dreher, an employe of a large Lancashire firm, threw up his situation and left for Berlin. No news of any kind reached his fiancee, a widow of some means, and, as her re peated letters remained unanswered, she soon became very anxious, when her uneasiness suddenly gave place to rage on receipt of an anonymous com munication, telling her of her faithless lover's flight and informing her of his address. Next day, accompanied by her brother, she left for Berlin, only to find on her arrival that Dreher, no doubt scenting danger, had fled south ward. Through Austria she traced him to Italy, where he was found in Rome, employed as waiter at a cafe. Over awed by the ibrother's threats, he con sented to accompany the couple to England, but contrived, on landing at Dover, to give them the slip. Once again was the hue and cry raised, but Dreher managed to reach New York with his pursuers...

CARELESSNESS THAT COSTS MILLIONS. Expensive Thoughtlessness. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 27 March 1914

CARELESSNESS THAT COSTS MILLIONS. Expensive Thoughtlessness. There are few people responsible for more harm in the world than the thoughtless person; and liis plea, when the damage is done, "I didn't mean to," or "I didn't think," is poor consolation to those who have suffered from his thoughtless act. When, forty years and more ago, an old woman of Chicago left a lighted lamp in dangerous proximity to the heels of a cow, she little dreamt, we may be sure, what appalling results would come from such a simple act of thoughtlessness. The fire which was started 'by that over-turned lamp in ihe Chicago cow-slied swept in tor rents of devastating flame over the city, and before the last ember was quenched it had reduced to charred ruins three and a-half square miles of streets. More than 17,000 build ings were destroyed, two hundred lives were sacrificed in the inferno of fire, 98,500 persons were rendered homeless, and damage was done to the extent of £38,000,000. In Kansas there are st...

MAN-EATING FOXES. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 27 March 1914

MAN-EATING FOXES. That the fox may be a man-eater ap pears from experience in Upper Pied mont, Italy. A young woman, accus tomed to wander in the mountain gorges, disappeared, and after a time some articles of clothing 'belonging to her, surrounded with footprints of j foxes, were discovered at a point nearly a mile atbove sea-level. As there were no other tracks, it was concluded that,, while stupefied with cold or fatigue, the woman must have been attacked and eaten by these an imals. A shy young man had been calling on the sweetest girl in the world for many moons, but, being bashful, his suit progressed slowly. Finally she decided it was up to her to start some thing, so the next time he called, she pointed to the rose in his buttonhole and said, "I'll give you a kiss for that rose." A crimson flush overspread his countenance, .but the exchange was made after some hestitation on his part. Then he grabbed his hat and started to leave the room. "Why, where are you going?" .^she as...

THE FIRST PEN. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 27 March 1914

THE FIRST PEN. In any large city, in the same block, possibly in the same building, can 'be found in use to-day the first type of pen and the latest. A fine hair-brush was the first instrument used by man for writing purposes. The Chinese lauudrymau of to-day marks liis tickets and keeps his ac counts with a camel's hair pen dipped in ink. Next door probajbly ds a white merchant who uses the latest make of steel pen^ Between the two, in the long his tory of the pen, came the reed, then the quill. Steel pens are almost in universal use now, and are made by the ton and in increasing volume every year. Confucius used a hair brush for a pen, and his ancestors for thousands of years before his time. The reed •came Jnto use for writing iin (the marshy countries of the Orient. It was hollow and, cut in short lengths, with sharpened ends, it was some im provement on the hair pen. The value of the quill was discov ered at an early date in the history of civilisation, and its use spread from ...

LEILA AND HER LOVER Published by Arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co. Ltd., Land, and Melb. (AH Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER V. The Voyage. I. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 27 March 1914

LEILA AND HER LOVER By MAX PEMBERTON. Published by Arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co. Ltd., Land, and Melb. (AH Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER V. The Voyajo. I. The friends heard of'the adventure shortly after midnight, and discussed it in awesome tones a'bove the very cabin where Leila watched Desdy in his heavy sleep. This was a rare blow to them, for they perceived immediately that it meant the end of their holiday. Far from being misogynists, in spite of the philosopher, they had throughout the whole of the cruise ig nored woman as an issue, and rarely mentioned her name when it was not prominently in the newspapers. They had believed Hugh Donald himself to be a man who would never marry. His aversion to the sex had become a Dy-word among them, and yet here was the very truth. "A girl aboard the Christa'bel!" But for the light in the cabin, which was unoccupied yes terday, they never would have "be lieved it. Herr Joseph, the steward, broke the news to them, and his tones were tragi...

CHAPTER VI. At Aberfeldy Castle. I. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 27 March 1914

CHAPTER VI. At Aberfeldy Castle. I. They put into Stranraer Harbor a little after dusk that day. Hugh had told her by that time just what he intended to do, and she had heard him without protest. A rough passage with almost a gale from the north .east kept them to the saloon and to the Arch.'ieacou's humors. The child alone revelled in the uncertainties of the day. He had Herr Joseph clown ing directly his clothes were on, and that fat worthy was a thinner and a sadder man when the lights of Ailsa Craig came to their view. George Hedges was ever a social diplomatist, and hie knowledge of domestic jurispiudence intruded hap pily upon this curious situation. Of Leila he formed a truly clerical opin ion. There would be two sisters, be said to himself, and one of them was a little wiid. It was quite possible rhat this ibeautiful"" siren they had trapped at Newcastle was in some measure an adventuress and yet to be discovered. He trusted to his own presence and to the majesty of the arch...

II. Not so the Archdeacon; he liad de cided to remain. Closeted "with Hugh in the private cabin he forgot even to smoke, so great was his curiosity. "Do you mean to tell me, my dear fellow, that you propose to talce her into Scotland?" he asked. Hugh admitted the infamy. "I am trusting to my judgment," h=; said; "if we did that always, life would be rather easier. Just consider, George, how much that we do is the result of men's convictions or their prejudices. Sometimes the prejudices are feminine—the argument is the same. I am trusting to an instinct which says that I have met one of the best of women, and that s1 e has need of me. If there were a thousand advocates in this cabin at this mo ment telling me I was deceived, it' would make no difference. She "will go to Scotland, and I shall ask my sister to take up her case. After that it will he plain sailing." The Archdeacon was not so sure of it. "A very worthy purpose," he said, and repeated the words as though they were oil upo...

ANTWERP. 1 :u: (From our own correspondent). On Sunday last the "Wesleyans held their harvest festival, when two .....services were conducted by the Rev •'* .McConchie, of Jeporit. The hall was ' very nicely decoratod by some of the lady members, and on the following Wednesday a tea social and concert .was held, and resulted in a financial success. x On Friday afternoon a son of Mr W. G. Cooke, while riding a bicyclo ran'againet a tree, and in trying to save himself, broke both bones of his left arm. He was at once driven to Dimboola' where Dr Phillips im mediately set the arm. The patient is progressing satisfactory. Water carting is again in force with a few farmers, and unless heavy rains fall, it will be general again. "Our tennis court adjoining the hall is being largely availed of, and practice is on nearly every evening and Saturday afternoon. Perch is getting more plentiful, and will bite when properly baited or flashed, which seems the more popular in fishing now.
