BABY'S FLOCKS AND HERDS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 22 April 1914
BABY'S FLOCKS AND HERDS. As soon -ai; a Lapp baby is born, a reindeer is presented to him. This reindeer Is literally his s'art In life, for not only that deer, but all its young —and as they grow up, all their young deer—belong to the child. When he is of age, he has quite a herd of his own. This custom is of much greater use to him than if every aunt, uncle and cousin he had in the world pre* sented him with the heaviest Silver spoon they could find. Variations of temperature in the ocean do not exist at a greater depth than 600 feet. Below that the tern* perature never varies. Life is like a railway train, and we Rre the passengers who grumble at Its slowness until we near the Ur Qiaos.

FATAL FIRE AT MEREDITH. ROYAL, HOTEL DESTROYED. &nbsp; ELDERLY WOMAN PERISHES. Geelong, Sunday An elderly woman was burnt to death at Meredith early this morn- ing through failing to escape from the Royal hotel, which caught fire between 2 and 3 o'clock. It was a three-storeyed place, containing about 25 rooms. The flames were first noticed by a neighbor, who roused the inmates, and within an hour the building, which burnt like tinder, was totally destroyed. It is believed that the fire started in the room of a domestic servant named Zee, who is a married woman. When the flames were at their highest, consternation was caused by a report that this woman was still in the building. A search amongst the ruins later on reveal- ed the charred remains. The licensee of hotel was James Bourke, and the building was insured. Other occupants of the hotel had an exciting experience, for they just had sufficient time to escape in &nbsp; their night attire. Only a few &nbsp...
