Her Eyes Upon Him. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 9 May 1914
Her Eyes Upon Him. A well-known writer was present re cently at a dress rehearsal of a com edy played by amateurs*. The re hearsal went well, but the hero, B—, seemed rather hard and cold. The novelist sat in a box next to a charm ing woman of middle age. She said, at the end of the third act, "It goes beautifully, doesn't it?" "Beautifully," said the gentleman. "But B doesn't make love to that pretty girl in as ardent a manner as I could wish. His love-making, in fact, strikes me as very tame and spiritless." The woman frowned. "He won't put any more spirit in it while I've got my eye on him, let me tell you," she said. "I'm Mrs. B % "Pa, what is a diplomat?" A diplomat, my son, is a man who remembers a lady's 'birthday, but for g ts her age."
TO PREVENT COLLISIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 9 May 1914
TO PREVENT COLLISIONS. In consequence of the frequency of railway collisons in various parts of the world recently, the directors of the Western (State) Railway, which forms part of the Newhaven-Dieppe route to London, are conducting a series of experiments with a new de vice which, it is hoped, will render it impossible for engine-drivers unwit tingly to run past signals. The new apparatus, which, from its shape, is known as the "crocodile," is placed between the rails near the dis tance signals, and is so arranged that when the train passes over it con nection is made with the engine in such a way that a powerful siren on the engine at once warns the driver that the signal, although, perhaps, in visible through fog, is against him.
A Double Application [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 9 May 1914
A Double Application "Well, sir!" exclaimed the million aire. "What do you want this morn ing?" "I've come again to ask for your daughter," said the poor, but ambi tious, young man. "Haven't I told you six times over on as many different days that it is out of the question? What do you mean by bothering me in this way? "You are making a nuisance of your self!" "If.vI seem to be more persistent than circumstances warrant, I must insist that you, sir, are to blame." "I!" shouted the indignant okl man. "I don't understand you." "There," said the man who loved his daughter, as he pointed to a motto over the banker's desk, "is my excuse for coming here day after day: 'II at first you don't succeed, try, try, . try again.' Do you beiiovj in thp.t I sentiment, or have you put it up there simply to deceive people?"

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 9 May 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. To prevent window^blind cords breaking, dust the cords, and then rub them over with a well-greased rag. The snapping is caused. .by friction, which impoverishes the cords, and ley are further weakened by the sua and weather. It is an excellent plan to keep in the kitchen a bottle filled with equal parts of linseed oil and lime-water, to alleviate the pain of .burns. Shake the bottle well before using the lo tion, and keep the burned parts from the air by covering with lint. The best way to test s'ilK is to cut off a small piece and burn it. If it ljurns out quickly, leaving a clear, crisp, grey a6h, the silk is pure; but if it smoulders and leaves a heavy reddish-brown ash it has 'been treated with chemicals, and will not wear well. A very good way to prevent a cracK ed wash-hand basin from breaking is to paint along the crack with white paint; then place along it a piece rA wide tape, the length of the crack. Paint well over this, and when dry it will be as firm a...
WEALTH FROM SAWDUST. Gas and Bread Made From it. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 9 May 1914
WEALTH FROM- SAWDUST. Gas ami Bread Made From ft. American and Canadian sawmills have discovered that the sawdust which they have been perplexed how to rid themselves of as a worthless encumbrance is worth at least £S per ton. In Baltimore a chemist has perfected a process of extracting gas from sav/dust, adequate enough to supply a city like Ottawa with light and heat at 5d. per 1000ft. This is thought to portend that around the great sawmills, which have been emp tying their dust into the Ottawa River, a variety of new industries subsisting on it are likely to grow up. In Austria, where everything in the shape of fuel is being carefully search ed for, sawdust is impregnated with a mixture of tarry substances and heated to the proper temperature; it is then passed over a plate of iron heated by steam, from which a screw conveyor takes it to a press, where it is compressed into briquettes of the required size. The press turns out about nineteen every minute, weigh ing two-fifths of ...
The Hypothetical Question. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 9 May 1914
The Hypothetical Question. "Miss Prittly," said the young law yer with the high brow and the Henry Clay forelock, "let me ask you a hypothetical question. Suppose that a young man of excellent habits and increasing income—a young man who believed himself fully capable of mak ing a woman happy—were to appear before a young woman who had eyes of rare and radiant lustre and hair of the texture and glory of spun gold, whose lips were more perfect than Hogarth's line of beauty, whoso cheeks'heid a tint that put to shame the magnificent pink of the rose petal—a young woman whose culture and charm easily placed her immea surably above all other women in the world—and he were to ask this young woman if she would——" "Oh, Mr. Blackstone!" she whisper ed, sinking into his arms. "Yes!" Regarding unconscious humor in the pulpit, intimations of pastoral visitation are a frequent pitfall to ministers attempting to define expli citly the district set apart for the hon or of a call.

THE MALIGNED COMET. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 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. Jxis 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 terrrble 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 V., Emperor of Ger many and King of Spain, to resign both crowns. But it came once more at the beginning of the Thirty Years' War, and Evelyn accused it of "work ing...
IN LOVE WITH A PICTURE. The Italian Who Stole "Monna Lisa" from the Louvre is not the First Man to Fall a Victim to the Charm of a Picture. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 9 May 1914
J IN LOVE WfTH A PICTURE. The Italian Who Stole "Monna 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 Gioconda. There were times, he said, when he felt that he must destroy the picture or he would go mad, so haunting was the smile. "Monna Lisa" has always had ad mirers. One of the Louvre guides at the time the picture was stolen, stated that he had seen visitors sit in front 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 JVfiHais's picture "Ophelia," ex...

Polite Melbourne. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 9 May 1914
Polite Melbourne. It was at a public-house in Mel bourne, where an old lady asked for a quartern of gin in a bottle. "We have three kinds, ma'am," said one of the grinning barmen. "We have oyxgen, hydrogen, and .dry gin. Which will you take?" "Dry gin," replied the old lady se verely. When she was served she said: "I was not aware your master kept three asses 'before, but I notice that he does. "Where?" asked the surprised bar man. "Why, there," she said, pointing to the other, two barmen. "There is Mr. Crimpass, "Mr. Thomas, and—let me Be->, they call you 'Jack,' don't they?" "Yes," replied the barman. "Then," she said, as she politely bowed herself out, "good-night, Jack ass!" A dispute had long existed in a gentleman's family between the cook and the coaclr.nan, about bringing the cream from the farm for breakfast. Their master one morning called them both before him that he might hear what they had to say. The cook pleaded that the coach ir.an was lounging about the kitchen t...
RED BOTTLES FOR MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 9 May 1914
RED BOTTLES FOR MILK. It is we'i known that colors have different. effects upon health. Some colors may soothe—green, for in stance—and others, like yellow, do the very opposite. The most remarkable of all colors, however, is red, which is noted for its healing qualities. Red has always ibeen a color that has "made itself felt," as the saying goes. Since good ness knows when, the Chinese have dressed those who are suffering from smallpox in carmine-colored clothes, and the people of Tongkin actually paint any children who catch measles red. Ner does China stand alone in this respect. The Spaniards make a point not only of attiring victims of measles in a red "shirt," but also of feeding them with red syrup. Sensitive children should have their nursery walls covered with pa per in which the main color is orange, while red light is most helpful in some cases of skin disease. Red is not only good for human be ing?. but it also acts as a preservative of milk. The people of Holland (who,...
WHEN YOU NEED A GOOD REST. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 9 May 1914
WHEN YOU NEED A GOOD REST. By a Hospital "Nurse. Ordiifary sitting in a chair or flying on the Sofa -are ;oot -by .any ?means the most restful positions you can adopt, ccr, though they ease certain parts of '.lie body, they leave others just as strained and tired as ever. Perhaps you may not know the val ue of putting your feet up as high as they will comfortably go. It is not elegant, I know, to sit with your feet on the table or the mantelpiece, hut it is most restful and good for you, so you may just as well do it when you are alone. A doctor once told me that he was constantly impressing this "feet-up" treatment on girls whose work made it necessary for them to stand about a great deal—shop assistants, teach ers, and so on. "Get your feet up as high as your head whenever you pos sibly can," he ordered. His patients used to think this very strange at first, but they quickly realised what 3 wonderful relief it gave to aching feet and tired legs. Another very "comfy," though not ex...

CHAPTER XV. The Lights of Lisbon. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 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 1110:0 upon the coast off^Ireland. Mat, to be sure, had been the very life and soul of these anxious days. Though he knew as well as any mon 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 his "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...

Journalists 'bombarded Hugh in uis hotel; he saw none of them. They served up stirring tales of the flight from Newcastle — differed as to whether Leila herself had been kid napped, or had braved the.seas in a small boat, were convinced that her trial would be one of the sensations of the season. 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 :iave to go to prison, as all the exports agreed. What chiefly concerned*the editors was the difficulty of getting her photograph—so they printed her sister's as a solatium to an expectant public. Ilugh was in court very early on the day o...

Avoca Stock Sale. I Thursday, 7th May. | Messrs Crawford, Dowling, and Sey mour report having held their usual fortnightly stock sale at Avoca as above, when there was an excellent yarding of 2147, mostly of very good class, comprising very good ewes, weanera,. and wethers. , There was a good attendance of keen buyers, and almost everything sold readily under the hammer, only 195 aged sheep being passed in. Frices were still on the in crease, which was doubtless due to the good class of sheep, and the fact that nearly all the sheep were direct from the owners' paddocks. The market was topped by Mr C. Wolfe, of Avoca, with a fine pen of crossbred and comeback ewes, 4 yrs old, in lamb to merino rams, at 21s, and Mr Thos.
