An Unexpected Order. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 15 August 1914
An Unexpected Order. The most interesting experience I ever had during' a long time on the road occurred some years ago in Scot land, 6ays a traveller. One day during the Highland Show, where we .were exhibiting engines, a very unkempt-looking individual liung around the stand-for somo time, and thinking he appeared very interested in a large traction engine, and might possibly be a driver, I approached him for a chat. After a time, however, I found he was a man who had an idea he would like to have it for. his own, but before deciding he said he would first have to ask his mother. A photograpiier. is something like a husband—the only thing on earth he asks of a woman is that she keep perfectly still and look pleasant.

Her Last Drive. A contretemps looked like arising it a funeral the other day In a rural !istrict. It was the wife of an elder 'y farmer who had died, and just as the cortege was about to leave the louse for the church, both mourners; md the undertaker's men were, tn :iy the least, startled by seeing the •vidower—a sturdy type of a farmer— uount tiie box-seat of the hearse, and :Uher up the reins. His friends went and told him t' ■enie down and take his seat in one if the mourning-coaches. "No, no," replied the l)P.:e old M w; and jerking his thumb in the di eetion of the cofiin, added: "She never ve.tild let anyone drive her but me. ■ ml this is the last time she will have ':e chance."

CHAPTER V. A Second Miniature. * Oliray nodded and walked as far | i us the inner consulting-room, where the telephone was placed.

The name was oddly | familiar, and yet for the moment In j could not recall where he had heard it >It seemed in some way to be directlj I concerned with the stirring events dl the past few hours. But then there had been so much to think about and, in any case, what did it really mat ter? Probably Herepath was no more than a casual patient who would see him to-dny and would he gone to-mor row. There were hundreds of avich, each regarding his or her own parti cular case as being of the first im portance. And yet C.ilray was an noyed because for the moment, he could not place (lie name. He took off the receiver and made the usual signal that he was tlrere. "Is that Doctor Everard Gilray?" a voice asked. "Oh, yes, I am Mr. Geoffrey Herepath speaking. We have met befo...

FOR THE FARMER. STOCK-BREEDING IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 15 August 1914
FOR THE FARMER. j| STOCK-BREEDING IN VICTORIA. J Dr. S. S. Cameron, Director of Agri culture in Victoria, in an interesting chat the other day with our represen tative, made some remarks on stock breeding, especially on small farms, that may be read with both pleasure and profit. Dr. Cameron said:—"I was recently struck by the high jump in values realised for beef breeds of cattle at the Sydney lloyal Agricul tural Show sales. For a year or two back the prices obtained at these sales for Hereford, shorthorn, and other beef-breed cattle have been compara tively low, thus indicating that the Queensland and other back - country buyers have not been operating as they used to do. It has always seemed strange to me that as Queensland is engaged in the business of beef export it does not emulate its great rival, the Argentine, whoso stock-breeders an nually import, at very high cost, some of the best pedigree stock ihat can be produced in Croat Britain. For years past the Ar gentine has be...

WHEN WALKING IS HARD WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 15 August 1914
WHEN WALKING IS HARD WORK. People often express surprise that soldiers on the march cover only ten or twelve miles of ground per day. Even then a good many men fall out through fatigue, some faint, and the whole are completely done up ut the end of the day. But the soldier is, nevertheless, a iirst-rate walker. It is all a matter of foot-tons of energy expended. Take an ordinary laborer, aud his day's work will be equal to 300 tons lifted one foot high. An eleven-stone man, walking seventeen miles on the level, does the same amount of muscle work. But mark, if he carries an overcoat weighing Gib., he does 311 foot-tons. Now, the soldier is a regular pack horse, and the kit that lie carries av erages about 601b. in weight. So that he does exactly as much work in a twelve-mile march as an ordinary man in his seventeen-mile walk. Besides, the soldier has to "break camp" before starting, and at the finish of the march he has to pitch camp, draw water, collect fuel, clean rifles, etc., n...
WIT OF THE ANCIENT GREEKS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 15 August 1914
WIT OF THE ANCIENT GREEKS. Cleomenes, when asked what was Lhe duty ot a king, replied, "To do ljoocI to your friends, but barm to your enemies." Hearing this, tiie philoso pher Arislo asked "Would it not be still butter to make your enemies l'riends, and so to do good to them also?" Philip ol Macedou, being advised by his friends to banish one of his slan derers, replied, "If I do he will go about and abuse me where there are more to listen to him." Dionysus the Tyrant, to put a slight upon l'lato, gave him the lowest seat at his table. "X daresay," he said, "when Plato goes back to Athens he will have plen ty to say against us." "air," said Plato, "I hope I may never be so at a loss for subjects of conversation as to have to talk about you!" Aristippns was once asked why he borrowed money of his friends. "No for my own benefit," he replied, "but to teach them the proper use of wealth." Anaximander was once laughed at by some little boys for his singing. When told of it he said, "We...
