THE MALIGNED COMET. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 9 May 1914
THE MALIGNED COMET. On January 14, 1742, there passed away one of the greatest of our astron omers, in the person of Edmund Hal ley, who worked up to the end of his long life, nis works were many, but the most notable was his great dis covery about the comet that bears his name. Until his time comets were supposed to be auguries of great good or evil, but chiefly the latter, and many persons lived in the greatest terror of them. Milton, for instance, speaks of the "comet pouring from his horrid head pestilence and war," and, indeed, they were commonly supposed to presage a terrible war, at least. One of them appeared in the fif teenth century, and was solemn ly cursed in a Papal Bull; but this did not affect the comet, which re appearerd seventy-fiv > years later, and it was this appearance which in duced Charles Y„ Emperor of Ger many and King of Spain, to resign both crowns. But it came once more at the beginning of the Thirty Years' Var, and Evelyn accused it of "work ing migh...

IN LOVE V/lTH A PICTURE. The Italian'Who Stole "Morina Lisa" from the Louvre is not the First Man to Fall a Victim to the Charm of a Picture. "I fell in love with 'Monna Lisa.'" That was the declaration of Vincen zo Perugia, the man who stole the famous picture, made to the police. After he had taken it from the Louvre he said that he went home, locked himself in his room, and stood en tranced before it, bewitched by the smile of La diocortda. There were times, he said, when he felt that lie must destroy tiifl picture or ho would so mad, so hatirtting was the smile. "Morinji Lisa" lias always had ad mirers. Oiie of the Louvre guides at the time the picture was stolen, stated that he had seen visitors sit in front i of it for hours, captivated by the se ductive smile; and the museum au thorities often used to have letters addressed to "The original of "Monna Lisa'!" Far more people than Vincenzo Per ugia have fallen 'madly in love with well-known pictures. It was ^illais's picture "O...

CHAPTER XV. The Lights of Lisbon. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 9 May 1914
CHAPTER XV. The Lights of Lisbon. Hugh left Dover on his yacht, the Christabel, upon the evening of a glorious day of June; he was off Lis bon three days afterwards, and Mat Michel was trying to tell him that this was the finest harbor in the world with the exception of a dozen or mo-.; upon the coast of Ireland. Mat, to be sure, had been the very life and soul of these anxious days. Though he knew as well as any man what failure would mean to Hugh Don ald, he would never let the word pass his lips. Always cheerful, with a jest at every turn, he became a veritable terror - to the Archdeacon, who, de spite the call of Devonshire and arch diaconal functions, insisted upon ac companying iiis "poor young friend," and of doing ample justice to the ef forts of the Christabel's masterly cook. George Hedges was not a pessi mist in practice, though in precept he frequently touched lightly upon the nether regions. "A man who flung roses into hell," as Mat said with the breezy candor of his ra...

Liondon liad treated the arrest of Leila with some indifference until it heard of her romantifc marriage— then in a twinkling it fell to feasting upon that dish of drama.

The world is in its own way grateful to a neighbor who goes to prison to make a newspaper holi day; and Leila .'Assuredly would .'vave to go. to prison, as all the exports agreed. What chiefly concerned the editors was the difficulty of getting tier photograph—so they printed her sister's as a solatium to an expectant ptiblic: i-Iugh was in...

Victoria's Electoral Rolls METROPOLIS AND COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 9 May 1914
Victoria's Electoral Rolls ■ Si _• METROPOLIS- AND COUNTRY. The revision of the Electoral rolls for the Victorian Assembly has given some startling results. No less than 100,000 names havo been added to the lists, an achieve ment which shows that the past Ministries were sadly parsimoni ous, or that Electoral Officials gave sorry returns for money paid them. Politicians may amuse themselves by trying to apportion the blame as accurately, or as in accurately, as their personal inter ests suggest, but the average elec tor looking at the figures finds other matter for serious concern. The old roll gave the country electorates 363,129 voters, the metropolitan constituencies 318. 786, that is to say the provinces were 44,343 votes to the good. The old state of things was bad ; the population and, as a conse quence, the political strength of Greater Melbourne was a menace. But the perfecting of the rolls has shown that the evil is far greater than most of us supposed. The metropolitan ele...

WIDOW'S WEDDING LORE. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 9 May 1914
WIDOW'S WEDDING LORE. 4 It may not bo well known,, bat thare ie a peculiar etiquette attach ing to the ceremony of a woman's secon 1 wedding. cuinstances permit, to marry as often ns she chooses, but only once in her lii'e is she allowed to carry orange blossoms. This is when she stands at the altar for the first time. On the same principle, it is not correct for a widow to wear white at her second marriage ceremony. Cream, • grey, heliotrope—indeed, any colour' she prefers—is permissible. The bride of experience also should never wear a long bridal veil with or without a bonnst. Neither is she allowed to wear a wreath o:i lb* short veil which etiquette permits her to don. She may, however, carry a bouquet, b-.it this should not be composed of white flowers.
