CHARACTER IN CHINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 22 August 1913
CHARACTER IN CHINS. A pointed chin ia said to be a sign of craftiness. A soft, fat, double chin shows sen suousneBB and an indolent tempera ment. • A' flat chin shows a cold, hard na ture; a small chin indicates weakness, want of will power, and cowardice. A retreating chin is a sign of sil liness, and, if the brow be shallow, of imbecility. Where the space between the nose and the red part of the lip Is short and very sharply cut, it indicates re finement and delicacy of' perception, but not much power. There is no force of intellect where this, space is usually short. A rather long but not. flat upper lip denotes nn eloquent person.' A very long upper lip, which is flat, and which belongs to a straight, or formless, or too thick-lipped mouth, is a Blgn of a low and vicious type of character. A square and massive chin shows strong and determined will. . What is that which is always in I place yoc. always out of .order?— -The letter * c.
LACONIC LETTERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 22 August 1913
LACONIC LETTERS.. Victor .Hugo, the groat French poet and novelist, could, be.'very lengthy at times, but he knew; how to be laconic also, "Les Misoraljles' liad just is sued from the press, and' Hugo, who was in the Channel Islands, was an xious to learn how it was selling. Be ing desperately busy, he contented himself with inscribing the note of interrogation on a postcard——ex pecting that his publisher would give him a full account of the sales. . But the publisher gave tlt-for-tat, the. re ply coming back simply "!" ] , Disraeli could be brief and bitter, but lie could also be brief and diplom atic. A bore who claimed acquaint ance with him perpetrated a boolt, and straightway sent a copy to. the states man, hoping to get a criticism from him which would boom it nvltli the public. He was, liowever, quite un able to determine whether the reply was a compliment or an insult. It simply read, "I shall waste no time in reading the book which you have so Itindly sent me." .

No Need to Hurry. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 22 August 1913
No Need to Hurry. During a lecture a well-known au-' thority on economics mentioned the fact that in one country the number of men was larger than that of' wo men, and he added humorously, "I can therefore recommend the ladies to migrate to that part of the world.". A young lady seated in one of the , front seats got up in great Indigna tion and waB leaving the room rather noisily, whereupon the lecturer re marked; "I did not mean that need be .done in euch a hurry aa that!"
THE STRENGTH OF A SPIDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 22 August 1913
THE STRENGTH OF A SPIDER. The amazing strength of spiders is shown in a number of well-authen ticated instances. Thus we have an instance of a half-inch spider. catch ing a two-Inch fieh. It was of the ground or, wolf family. A scientist came upon it struggling with a lish on the jdge of a little pool. Its c aws were hurled in the fish's tail; it had the tail out of the water, but ■ the head still remained underneath. The spider struggled to pull the fish up the bank, and the fish struggled de sperately to draw the spider lato the pool. For ten minutes the scientist, watched this silent and deadly fight. Then he hurried away for a bottle in which to put the combatants when lio captured them. He was gone fbout half-an-hour, and .011 his return the end had come. The fish was dead, and the spider was slowly dragging its victim- away.'
A RAILWAY ACROSS THE OPEN SEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 22 August 1913
A RAILWAY ACROSS THE OPEN .SEA. The Florida Keys Railway 'runs-'' from the mainland for a distance of one hundred and twenty-four miles ' over what Is practically open eea. Im agine a string of tiny Islets, stretch-. ing like the broken-off piers of some Titanic bridge, right out Into the . great salt ocean, and you "nave the Florida Keys. Most of them are only a few rods In extent. Here and there is one that reckons Its area in acres; while four or Ave among them are islands, rather than islets, cover ing several square miles. Big or lit tle, however, they serve merely as stations for the railway, which runs over and upon them with the open sea on either side of it. Moreover, the viaducts and embankments that carry the trains, although immensely strong, are so narrow and steep that the passengers look out upon ocean only. There is no land what ever in sight during the greater part of the trip.
A PATRIARCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 22 August 1913
A PATRIARCH. The! oldest living thing In the world Is thought to lie the famous cypress in' the .churchyard of tho vil lage of Santa Maria del-Tula, a few miles from Mexico City. Experts, Judging by .the gigantic bole of tho tree and by, the slow growth , of this species, have estimated the ago of the patriarch, of all trees to be be tween flvo and' six thousand yoars. These , figures are staggering to tho Imagination. .On the lowest compu tation, when the seed from which tho tree'sprang fell upon the earth, King Menes was holding the first reign In Egypt of which wo have historic knowledge — three thousand years B.C. It was a slender stripling two hundred years old when Cheops drove Ills subjects with the lash to the. labor of building the Great Pyra mid. It had_ reached a lusty youth of one thousand five hundred, years when the Israelites made their exo dus from'the land of the Nile. .This living thing In tropical America was silently: attaining to its present sta ture and vigor. ...
The Lost Parchment (By Arrangement with Ward, Look and Co., Melbourne.) (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER XIV. A Clue. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 22 August 1913
The Lost Parchment By FERGUS HUME. (By ;Arrangement with Ward, Look .. and Co., Melbourne.) (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER XIV. A Clue. Needless to say, as it had been agreed to keep the discovery secret for, the present, Hendle did not dis charge Mrs. Beatson forthwith. Such an action, justifiable though it would have ■ been, might lead to awkward 'questions being asked, and Carring ton, for obvious reasons, advised cau tion. As things now stood the house keeper would keep silent for her own sake, so the next day she went about her usual duties as if nothing had hap pened. None' of the servants knew about her excursion, as it was sup posed she had remained in her own room, according to her usual custom. So far as the outside world was con cerned everything was safe, and the two men had time to look into mat ters, at their leisure. It made .Rupert's gore rise to have the trea cherous woman'under his roof, but until he was assured of the truth of the will, he did not dare to get rid ...

BE CAREFUL WHEN YOU LAUGH. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 22 August 1913
BE CAREFUL WHEN YOU LAUGH. ' Few people know., what' dangers . lurk in excessive laughter./, When we laugh our regular breathing is chang- . ed, coming in quick, short respira-.' tlonB, because the throat muscles are contracted. It is'tor this reason.that, when laughing very heartily; at, some good joke, we have often to gasp for breath. At times we are' obliged to hold our sides on account of the pain a hearty laugh causes us, owing to the. partial suffocation of the lungs through cutting off their proper air; supply. ' • Every muscle in the body becomes contracted during a fit of laughter. Often the blood vessels in the faqo be come congested, causing it to turn red and purple. Should this conges tion continue for any length' of time, apoplexy resulting in death might well occur. It Is better in theso cir cumstances to laugh until we cry, for the shedding of tears relieves the congestion of the brain. Tears caus ed by grief do good.in the same way; and that is how, after a great s...
CHAPTER XV. Circumstantial Evidence. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 22 August 1913
CHAPTER XV. Circumstantial Evidence, Rupert-felt very uncomfortable. It was bad enough to have Mrs. Beatson in the housei when he knew how trea cherous she was; but it was worse to entertain Carrington as his guest. The barrister undoubtedly was deter mined to>-make money at the cost of honor., And what was more, he would probably gain his ends, unless the truth came to light. And the truth required to adjust matters was to learn beyond question what was the name of the individual who had mur dered the vicar. . If, indeed, Mallien was the culprit, Rupert felt that he was in Harrington's power. It was impossible to allow the truth to come to Lawson's ears, as then Mallien would be arrested and there would he a public scandal. Yet if Carrington, who knew all details, were not brib ed largely to keep silence, it seemed likely that he would denounce the miserable man. Of course, as yet, Hendle-could not be certain that liiB cousin had committed the crime; but circumstances were again...

Federal Land Tax. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 22 August 1913
Federal Land Tax, Since the Federal land tax came ' into .operation,v three years ago, land of an unim proved value of oyer ^20,000, 000 has passed out of the field of taxation. The coinmis missioner points out, however, that the whole of these aliena tions cannot be claimed as evidence of increased settle ment on the land throughout .■Australia";' Many families, he: stated, had subdivided their' ;j pint interests, so as to secure -the. lower rate of tax and sep arate deduction for the • indivi dual share, i In such cases the virtual ownership remained the same During 1910-] 1— the first year of the tax—land of an „ unimproved value of ^*11,500,000 passed out of the taxable field. The next year the amount receded to £9,000,-. 000, while the estimate for the third year is only, £3,500,00o. In Mr McKay's opinion, the tax is preventing the accumu lation of land in large estates, and its general effect is in the direction of inducing sub-divi sion of estates now held.
