Royal Walking-sticks. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 17 July 1914
Royal Walking-sticks. The recent announcement that Andrew Jackson's heavy hickory stick has been presented to Presi dent Woodrow Wilson reminds one that King George inherited the 2,000 walking-sticks which belonged to his father, King Edward. The collecting of walking-sticks was his late Majesty's favourite hobby, his most treasured stick being one which was regularly carried by Queen Victoria. This remarkable stick was fashioned from a branch of the Boscobel oak which once concealed Charles IT. when escap ing from Cromwell's soldiers. Queen Victoria had it altered somewhat, and a little idol from Seringapatam was inserted as a knob. King Edward's collection of walk ing-sticks, of course, included all sorts of designs. It was a fact, however, that he preferred as a rule an ordinary crook shape. In deed, his fondness for this particular design gave not a little impetus to its popularity. Talking of famous walking-sticks and their owners, AUessrs. Henry Howell and Co., who are probabl...
Phantom Monoplane. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 17 July 1914
Phantom Monoplane. i The first air-ghost has just bean encountered on Salisbury Plain by one of the most skilful of our Army aviators, who went up on a mono plane on a cloudy day accompanied by his mecKanic. The aeroplane en tered the clouds, and the pilot was continuing his flight in them, when suddenly he discovered another mor noplane, no more than fifty yards away, coming straight towards him out of the mist. He dived almost ^ vertically, and after a headlong de scent levelled out once more, but his relief was only momentary. The other pilot must have performed exactly the same manoeuvre, for- no sooner was he speeding along., again oil a level keel than he saw the monoplane once again looming out of the mist, heading straight towards him. Terror-struck, the pilot dived again, emerged below the clouds,, and . forthwith, landed. Not until then did the explanation strike him. He had fallen a victim to an hallucination of the clouds fa milar to every Alpinist, and seen his living s...

"Princess Carambo, In April of the year 1817, an agricultural labourer in Gloucester-, shire foxmd a young woman of prepossessing appearance roaming through the fields alone, friendless and destitute. He handed her over to the nearest county magistrate, a Mr. Samuel Worrall, of Knole Hall. To this gentleman and his family she proved a great mystery, for they could not understand her lan guage. Many learned professors of languages were called in, to try to converse with her, but none suc ceeded. By dint of signs, however, she made them to understand that she came from a great personage, and that she had been kidnapped in ' a dynastic plot, then carried to England, and left on the shore in a destitute condition. England was agog with the news. The highest in the land came to Knole Hall to interview the "Prin cess Caraboo." Then, to intensify the excitement, a tramping Portu guese sailor called at Knolo Hall, pretended to interpret her lan guage. The girl was, ho said, un doubtedly of ...

Rats' Tails at Fourpence Each. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 17 July 1914
Rats' Tails at Fourpence Each. ? t . ' It is calculated that there is one rat to every acre in England and Wales, and each rodent does dam age to the extent of one farthing per day, which represents a total loss of £15,000,000 to the country. The annual bill for the upkeep of a small army of cats and ra.t-cat chers . at the London Docks amounts to hundreds of pounds per year, and though a thousand rats are killed there every week, the ofli cials cannot exterminate the pests. The whole of the civilised world is now engaged In a war of ex termination against the plague carrying, unnecessary, and destruc tive rat. Australia has spent £60, 000 upon a single structure intend ed as a barrier, and Denmark in troduced a successful Anti-Rat Bill. This Bill provided for the payment of a premium of not less than a half-penny and not more than a penny, according to the districts, for each rat captured, the money being supplied by a State grant. Rat- hunting became almost' a national pastime wit...

His story was that oil the previous Saturday he had walked from Glossop, his home, to Manchester, and, having no money j to pay his fare back; he had se creted himself - under the carriage of a train which he understood was go ing to Glossop, but' which turned out to be the express for London ! Later inquiry showed that this was not the first- time the boy had rid den in such an^undesirable position when journeying on the railway !
