The Henald THURSDAY, APRIL 30, 1914. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 30 April 1914

THURSDAY, APRIL. 30, 1914. The brunt of a heavy storm was felt at Wodonga on Thursday afternoon. A little boy named Anthony Toal was   caught by the wind and swept into   deep drain, which was running strongly into a culvert. He managed to grasp a stone at the side and so saved himself. A cow, the property of Mr. D. Wolf, was billed by the lightning. The ljoofs of houses were covered with hail, and the accumulated water found its way through the iron roofs.. The Corryong paper reports:—Mr. Wilfred Whitehead sustained a serious loss ou Monday evening, when his motor car caught fire between the butter factory aud tho town, and was completely de stroyed. The cause of the mishap, was the back-firing of the engine, and, as the petrol tank was full, there was no chance of saving the car. We understand that the car was insured for £100, but, as this amouut was only about half its value, Mr. Whitehead's loss is a severe one. The Grand'Master of the Freemasons, M. W...

WIT AND HUMOR. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 7 May 1914

WIT AND HUMOR. j "Therese changes her liair con-' stantly." j "That's because it's so close to her mind, probably.'' j "What kiuil of a disguise are you . going to wear at the masquerade?" "A .'diaphanous' gown." People will see right through that." "I don't know what I want to eat to-day. I'd like a little of everything." "Very well, sir," replied the waiter. "The hash will be ready in a few min utes." "So you don't appruve of those London Suffragettes?" "I don't know much about them," replied Miss (Jayen, "but x can't help feeling that a woman who can't su'b due a few men without the use of dynamite is something of a failure." "This isn't a clean knife, Jane," said the young mistress to the new servant. "Well, it ought to be," said the ser vant, "for the last thing It cut was soap." "My dear wife spent her early years in a milliner's shop," said a ■wealthy self-made man the other day, "Mine spends most of her time there now," growled his friend. "She's pretty dear, too!"

CHAPTER IX. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 7 May 1914

CHAPTER IX. But if Sheila Danvers was sad over night, she had no time for melan choly on the following morning. After all, she was young, and her glass told her that she was beautiful. The bun was filling her bedroom wltli a gold en light. She sprang out of bed, washed and dressed quickly without waiting for Nanny's aid, and was out in the garden some time before breakfast. She could not help a sense of intense relief at the absence of Ralph; and this sense of relief she reproached herself for, as she knew quite well that what gave her plea sure gave poor Aunt Margaret the keenest pain. Nevertheless, she was glad. Ralph as a little boy had been tiresome, selfish and quarrelsome. As he grew older, his greatest delight was to give Sheila sharp pinches on the sly. All these were objectionable enough; but the last time she was home his manner had been insolent and overbearing. He had remarked boldly on the color of her eyes, vhe length of her tawny hair, and the shape of her feet. It wa...

GREATER THAN GOLD By L. T. MEADE, Author of "The Soul of Margaret Rand," etc. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London & Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER VIII. Sheila Danvers possessed those at tributes which are the common an» j much-valued prerogatives of certain mixed races. On her mother's siuc i she was Irish to her finger-tips; she | had all the impetuosity, the fire, the , enthusiasm, the imagination of those fascinating people. Mrs. Danvers hud j been a Carey from Donegal, and her descent was long and pure. Ou the i other side, Sheila's father was a stur-1 dy Yorkshireman, firm of figure, up right in his bearing, and with a splen did sense of conscientiousness. But Sheila inherited something far more valuable than money. She hau derived from her mother pride of rare and distinction of carriage. Her eyes—those truly Irish eyes—were put in, as the saying is, "with dirty fingers," the skin around them being a shade darker than the rest of the face...

SCOTTS WANTED HERE. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 7 May 1914

SCOTTS WANTED HERE. The North and South Poles liave both been discovered, but there are still lots of places the geographical world is simply aching to have defin ite facts about. Geographers wefe badly sold lately when an explorer knocked on the head the :belief that the river Brah maputra (a mighty river that flows along the north side of the Himalayas and joins the Ganges) possesses a waterfall compared with whicli Niag ara is a baby. The lower part of the river is some thousands of feet lower than the up per reaches, and it has long been thought that the unexplored middle region included a mighty cataract. It doesn't. The geographical world is sorry, but glad to know. Arabia is country with vast pos sibilities for the ambitions explorer. OhIv the coast fringe is really known even to the natives, who call the in terior "The Land of llie Void." There are 600,000 square miles of It, and it may contain absolutely anything in the way of riches, ruins, or—sand. Somebody is wanted to f...

II. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 7 May 1914

The sun glared down upon the dig gers as' they bent to their arduous task. As the day advanced, the'heat became almost .unbearable.. With parched throat and burning limbs the boy stuck doggedly to his work; but at length he was compelled to let fall his shovel, and sink exhausted on the stump of a tree. Sweat poured from his forehead; his eyes were like balls of lire. Jim came over to liim, and said: "What's your name, youngster?" "Sydney Wood," replied the boy. "Well, Sydney," continued Jim, "it seems to me tliat you've took on more than you can manage. I brought you along just to humor you; but I knew all along that the work would ' prove too much for you. I'm not go- I ing to say that you haven't the pluck ' —it's the strength you lack. Now, I've just been wondering if we couldn't turn you into a cook." "A cook?" gasped Sydney. "Yes, that's more in your line, isn't it? I suppose you could cook, after one or two tries." "I would do my best," replied Syd ney, nervously. "I'm not us...

TWO WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 7 May 1914

TWO WOMEN. From Mrs. M. Darcy, 163 St. Leonard's-road, Ascot Vale, Vic toria. " Some years ago, I began to suf fer from various liver and kidney troubles, arising no doubt from a severe cold I contracted about that time, and which nearly prostrated me. From thence on I experienced acutc pain in the back and sides, and under the shoulder blades. The slightest pressure on the liver would cause me intense pain. I suffered like this for a long while without any prospect of relief, I having tried so many re medies without avail. As a last re source I decided to try a course of Warner's Safe Cure, which had been highly recommended to me by friends who had derived great benefit' from taking the medicine. After taking a few bottles of Warner's Safe Cure my health improved rapidly, and I was soon effectually cured and free from all the pain and discomfort which has assailed me for so many years." From Mrs. Eva Sharrer, 24 Hanover street, Windsor, Vic. " Some years ago I was taken with violen...

III. S | "Is it true? Is your name Maggie Griffiths?" asked Jim, hoarsely, when j lie had • recovered in some measure l'l-om the shod; occasioned by Ella's j startling words. "Yes, it is true," replied the girl, hanging her head in shame. "Can you ever forgive me for having de ceived you? I hated to come here ur.der false pretences; but it was the only way to escape detection." "How have you found out the truth about her?" asked Jim, turning to Ella. „T, "Easy enough," replied Ella. I ve had my eyes 011 her since first she came, and yesterday I got hold of a Melbourne newspaper dated two months baclc. In It was a picture of this girl, and a full account of what she was wanted for. It seems she was with this fellow Bavid "Walton as his secretary, and got thick with his nephew. Finding out that the old man had made a will in his nephew 1 Arthur's favor, she coolly poisoned the old man, intending to make up to Arthur, and collar the brass. She worked it so as one of the servants should...

Not Her Sort. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 7 May 1914

Not Her Sort. After he had fallen upon his knees and kissed her hand she said: "Before'I answer 'Yes' or 'No,' there are some things I would like to ask you. Do you ever drink or gamble?" "No," he eagerly replied. "I do not know what the taste of liquor is; I have never defiled my lips with to bacco. I have never uttered a profane word in my life. I have never even played bridge where a prize was at stake." She looked at him thoughtfully for a moment, drew a long sigh, and then asked: "Have you ever broken a woman's heart?" "Ah, how can you ask me that?" he almost reproachfully answered. "If I had ever spoken words of love to another I would not deem myself worthy to touch the hem of your gar iment. I have never cared for anyone but you. I have never kissed any wo man except my mother. I have never given any girl cause to utter one sor rowful sigh. Yours is the first dear, soft little hand that I have ever held in my own. Never before to-night have I looked into any girl's eyes as I...

CLEVER BUSINESS MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 7 May 1914

CLEVER BUSINESS MEN. The ability to seize an opportunity is p. valuable, nay indispensable, busi ness as-et as the following incidents . go a long way to prove, j An aeronaut and liis son met with an accident near Rouen some years ago; through the car o£ their balloon having broken away, father and son [ were thrown downwards, but the son had beeli caught when falling in a I hook which pierced his coat. 1-Ie was carried this way for some miles, ultimately coming to the ground in safety. His coat.was pur chased by the makers anil hunjy in their show windows, with a full de scription of how it saved the wear er's life. And as a fitting reward for their enterprise their sales actually doubled. A Welsh miller lost a sovereign in a bin of flour, and after spending many unavailing .hours in search of it told a friend of his misfortune. "Perhaps it will turn up in one of the sacks," suggested the friend, whereupon the miller was seized with a brilliant idea. He advertised in the local pape...

BLOWING HIS OWN TRUMPET. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 7 May 1914

BLOWING HIS OWN TRUMPET. When you hear a fellow boasting Of the brave deeds he has done, Don't disturb him, let him tell you All his smart things one by one; But remind him when he's finished— Yes, his pardon humbly beg— That the hen that cackles loudest Does not lay the biggest egg. No doubt you have met people— There are' lots of them, you know— Who to promise aye are readv, At performing very slow. In fair weather they're staunch com rades, But in foul they show the leg; For .the hen that cackles loudest Does not lay the biggest egg. Babbling streams make' far jnore noise Than the stately rivers' flow. Though upon the latter, commerce Busily goes to and fro. So it is with human mortals, Workers on in silence peg; For the hen that cackles loudest Does not lay the biggest egg. So of boasters I would warn you, Don't believe half what they say, For the man who's aye a-blowing His own trumpet's Just a jay. And experience will teach you Never of them favors beg; For the hen that cackle...

The Digger's Sweetheart. I. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 7 May 1914

The Digger's Sweetheart. By H. G. Maelaurin. "Hallo! boys! look what's blown into the camp." It was at a very early hour on a bright, sun-shiny morning. The gold diggers had issued from their respec tive tents, and were now busily engag ed in making preparations for their simple morning meal, before going to their claims to pursue their feverish quest for gold. So engrossed were they in their tasks that they had not noticed the approach of the newcom er, until their attention was drawn to him by the above facetious remark, which fell from the lips of Ben Lang ton, one of the diggers. The newcomer was one of the last persons in the world whom one would have expected to encounter in a rough and tumble mining camp. He was not more than, 5ft. 2in. in height, and his form was slim and dapper. He had .a pair of {$i'£e,. innocent blue eyes, and a complexion like a girl's. The clothes he wore were much too big for him, and appeared to have been intended originally for someone else. No wonde...
