Patriotic Religions Service ? (TO TIIE KDITOKOK TUB li.UXItOlV AK008) | Sir,—At a meeting of the local Minis ters' Association it was unanimously decided to hold a patriotic religious service in the Mechanics' Hall on Empire night (May 24) at 8.150 o'clock. As secretary of the above-mentioned association I have been instructed t') enlist the services of your valuable journal in endeavoring to m:.ke this known as widely as possible. I may say that several Councillors and other representative gentlemen are being invited to be present on the platform ; also.that Kev. Grillitha has been asked to deliver an address appropriate to the occasion. As we believe the expression of our patriotic feeling in such a time and way would be most lilting, and as every effort is being put forward to make it a success, we trust this move ment emanating from the churches, will have the sympathetic coperation and support of our fellow-citizens. -Yours, I etc., S.

Her Eyes Upon Him. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 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 l'or S ts her age."

"I thought I would c.ome and toll you that your James has been fighting with my Edward," said one of the neighbors, one morning as she called at Mrs. Gordon's door, "and settle the matter if I could." "Well, for my part," responded Mrs. Gordon haughtily, "I have no time to enter into any discussion about the children's quarrels. I consider my self above such trifling things." "I'm delighted to hear it," was the reply. "I'll send James over on a stretcher in an hour or two."

A Double Application. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 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 I seem to be more persistent than circumstances warrant, I must insist that you, sir, are to blame." "1!" shouted the indignant, old 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: '•ji at first you don't succeed, try, try, try again.' Do you beiiovo in tin.: sentiment, or have you put it. up there simply to deceive people?"

TO PREVENT COLLISIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 9 May 1914

TO PREVENT COLLISIONS. Iii 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-Dieppo route to Loudon, 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.

BACK TO THE LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 9 May 1914

BACK TO THE LAND. There are too many "dreamers and , thinkers," And not enough tillers of soil; There are too many eaters and drinkers Who use up the products of toil; There are too many boosters and boomers, With manners too easy and bland; We're cursed with too many consum ers. We ought to go back to the land. There are too many getters and tak ers, And not enough. men who produce; There are too many broad rolling acres Untouched and untilled — out of use; We stick where the grime and the grit is, And the streets with the poor are a-swarm; We're crowded too much in the cities, We ought to go back to the farm. We've got to be workers and plough ers, AVHo, sweat in the fields like true men; We've got to make use of our powers To make the land blossom again. What, me? On a farm? And to stay there? Well, not for a bundle of pelf! I was trying to show you the way there. But I'll stick to the city myself.

Air-Quakes Now. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 9 May 1914

Air-Quakes Now. i The suggestion that there are aii1 quakes, due to explosions 01* me teorites, and quite independent of earthquakes and ' volcanoes, comes from no less an authority than Mr. W. I-\ Deaning, the astronomer. That such explosions are sometimes audible is well -known. Prof. . W. M. Foots has just recorded that a large meteorite falling near IIol brook, Arizona, at G.30 p.m., on July 29th, 11)12, broke up with a loud noise that lasted half a Jninute or more, and scattered over a stretch of three miles of sandy desert, more than 14,000 of the fragments—of a • total weight of nearly 500 pounds—having been picked up and preserved. The ex ploding bodies, of course, are not always seen. A violent air shock on the morning of November 19th caused the shaking of windows and other effects in the vicinity of Sun ninghill, but could not be connected with any earthquake, and this has led to the conclusion that it was due to the explosion of a fireball high in the air. The view is co...
