Still Generous. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914

Still Generous. It was her birthday, but he had r shed off to business with just the usual duty-peck at her upturned face,, and she was' left to worry the day through, oppressed by the thought that his once ardent love was waning. When he returned at night, wished her "many happy returns," gave her a full-size hug, and placed a tiny pac ket in her hand, she knew that she had wronged him. He was still the same generous-hearted Romeo who had wooed and won her, "And I thought you'd forgotten all about it, Harold," she cooed, as she carefully unwrapped the package. Then a black-edged expression took a front seat on her features. "Pipe cleaners!" she gasped. "Yes, pet," he said; "I knew they'd please you. You never did like me to use your hat-pins!" The late Lord Young, at a civic gathering, asked who the gentleman with such a very red nose might be. "Oh! that's the new water engin eer," was the answer. "A most judicious appointment," remarked Lord Young. "I should say that's the man who...

Repentance Postponed. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914

Repentance Postponed. An old negro parson was denoun cing theft to his congregation when he said: "IE there is any member of this congregation who is guilty of theft he had 'better repent at once and be saved." On his way home he was stopped by an old Rastus, -who had listened to the sermon intently. "Don't you think, parson, that next Sunday will do just as well as to night to repent?" asked Rastus. "But, Rastas, why not repent to night and be saved, man?" "Well, parson, it's this way," ex plained Rastus. "I want just one mo' chicken fo' to-morrow's dinner, and I know wha I can get dat chicken, wid out bein' caught to-night." "Well," said the parson, hesitating, "I don't know what to say, so I think I will take dinner with you to-morrow and then talk the matter over with xrrm 99 "Everybody knows about it," said Mrs. Bickers, referring to a family quarrel next door. "Some people take her part and some take her hus band's part." "And I' suppose," snarled Bickers, "there are a few ecc...

EARLY YUCATAN RACES CAPABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914

EARLY YUCATAN RACES CAPABLE. Various authorities have ascribed to the ruins in Yucatan an age of from 1000 to 11,000 years. These fig ures are based on (lata derived from calendar stones preserved in many places both in Yucatan and in neigh boring regions such as Mexico and Guatemala. The stones can be deci phered with considerable accuracy, and exact dates can be assigned to the construction of many buildings. The only trouble is that the dates belong to the various local eras of the dif ferent countries, and no one knows, when a single one of the eras began. This ignorance affords an ample field for speculation. There are, however, strong reasons for believing (writes Ellsworth H,untington in "Harper's Magazine") that the ruins date back a long time before the coming of the Spaniards. Two of the strongest o£ these reasons are that when the Span iards came to Yucatan, early in the sixteenth century, the Mayas," in the first place, were a slow, mild, unpro gressive people, utterly d...

HOW THE MONTHS WERE NAMED. January Is of Latin origin, from the word Januarius, named by the ancient Romans in honor of their so called "god," Janus, to whom the sea son of the year was sacred. February comes .from the Latin word Februarius, derived from feb rum, which, in the Sabine language, meant a "purgative"; hence comes the Roman festival of lustration and expiation. March is named in honor of Mars, the Roman god of war. April derived Its name from the La tin, Aprllls, and that from Aperire, which means to open. May Is a name, the origin of which comes from the Romans, In honor of Maia, the mother of Mercury and daughter of Atlas. June is a name that all will readily think of when they read the history of the goddess Juno. In this month, she seemed, from all accounts, to be greatly worshipped. July is in honor of the great Roman, Caius Julius Caesar, who was born at this season of the year. August was named in honor of the great Roman emperor, Augustus Caesar. September was th...

GREATER THAN GOLD By L. T. MEADE, Author of "The Soul "of Margaret Rand," etc. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London & Melbourne. All -Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XIV. The. mansion was gay with the flowers o£ the season-roses, of course, mixed with innumerable tail white lilies, which were in the per fection of their bloom. The best flor ists, the "best decorators had been all day at Iiansell House, and, under the directions of the Duchess of Tewkes bury, had made such a marked change in its appearance that Sheila felt she would scarcely know it. By the Duchess's orders she wore her lovely presentation dress and the magnifi cent rope of well-known pearls. Mrs. Bellairs was garbed in a gown of pale grey velvet in the very latest style, and her husband's narrow chain of diamonds, with its glittering pen dant, hung from her neck. Beyond his message to Sheila, no word had been heard as to Bellairs, and the Duchess felt slightly annoyed at his absence on such an a...

CHAPTER XV. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914

CHAPTER XV. During the short remainder of the night of Sheila's hall, Peter Bellairs did not retire to rest. Jle was deadly weary, hut his mind was so full of agitation that sleep was Impossible. He had done fairly well in Paris, and had secured at the price of ten thou sand pounds the greater number of the diamonds which had been in the bracelet, but by no means all, for Le Fevre had sold some at a prico which he took care not to mention. Bel lairs, I-Iolman, and young Mordecai felt that nothing more could he done, and the unhappy K.C. returned to his home stricken to the heart's core. He put the diamonds which he had secured at so vast a sum into his safe, intending to take them in the morn ing to Mordecai to verify. He found himself tired and depressed in a scene of brilliant gaiety, and, what was worst of all, he knew that, owiag to his wife's theft, he was again a comparatively poor man. But Bellairs thought very little dur ing the remnant of" that Bhort night either of the dia...

SEED POTATOES. Necessity for Careful Selection. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914

8EED P0TAT0E8. Necessity for Careful Selection. Numbers of growers have had re* .on to complain of the quality of their seed potatoes. Perhaps they are them ielveB to 'blame to some extent for not taking greater care In selecting the seed. The seed potato which is moat favored is one weighing from two to four ounces, and the grower who makes a rule of excluding from his lines all that fail to come within this standard will give satisfaction to the purchaser' and to those who handle his consignments. Not only will he be able to command a higher price in a bare market, but in a full market his stock will bring him quick and good returns, while that of his lees careful neighbor will hang fire and possibly at the last be sacrifled. Diseased and scabby potatoes should on no account be allowed to pass. Knobby and misshapen sets should also be strictly excluded. It needs but very few of these to completely spoil a whole line. The result of growing from the same stock year after year would ...

NOTES. The Lismore Association has joined the Geelong Associated football clubs, and will have the sorvices of Geelong umpires for all future premiership matches. This will mean that a punc tual start will have to be made witli the. games so as to allow the umpires to . catch the evening train back to Gee-1 long. Before the match started at Berry. Bank on Saturday, Mr J. Mack, whose, paddock is used as the playing ground, made a little speech to the spectators. , He said that he always did what he could for sport, and liked to see a big . i crowd and people enjoying themselves. _ But he objected to spectators encroach-. ing on the reserved area and spoiling the game. There was a deep furrow all around it, and if people would not keep ofl' the football ground he would summon them. The previous Saturday, when the State schools were playing the Cressy boys, some men persisted in . trespassing and kicking the football, and when ordered off, used language j that was far from polite.

Football. DISTRICT COMPETITION STARTED LISMORE BEAT DERRINALLUM. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914

football. DISTRICT COMPETITION STARTED ."LISMORE BEAT DERRINALLUM. Saturday saw the commencement of the district premiership competition, in which four clubs have entered. The first match between Lismore and Der rinallum resulted in a rather easy win for the former. Derrinallum players had been undecided whether to try and raise a team for this season's competi tion, although the match was played on j their own ground, they had to scratch around to make up their eighteen. Lis more, on the other hand, were repre sented by pretty well their full strength, and had a player or two in reserve ready to strip off if needed. One of these was Alec. Murdoch, who played such a j strenuous ruck game last season, but i who would now just as soon give place I to a younger man. He undertook the j duties of boundary umpire. The Lis- ! more team chose Percy Walters as their j captain, and Horwood skippered the j locals. In the absence of a Geelong j umpire, Mr Cooling, of Lismore, took j charge of t...

A Neddyfying Move. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914

A Neddyfying Move. The Mayor's wife was highly elaterl over her husband's unexpected knight hood, and it was with gratification that she induced him to consent to their speedy removal to a more classy neighborhood. She at once dispatched a letter to the principal carriers to send, on a certain date, one of their largest fur niture removers. On the day of the removal, how ever, the Mayoress was staggered to see a donkey and cart stop outside the house. "Whatever does . this mean?" she demanded of the driver. "I sent for one of your largest vans!" "Be easy, mum," replied the man. soothingly. It's orlright. The big van was bespoke, d'ye see, so the gaf fer ses to me, ses he, 'Sliyfter, you talc?

This is not entirely our fault ; we have no miracu lous power of knowing what is happen ing at all the places within our area of circulation. It is the fault of residents in the silent places. Will some man or woman fake the matter in hand and cuusc the silence to cease ? If no one else is doing it for your district, will you try on these lines ? Send accounts of public and social events in your township and neighbour hood, such as weddings, deaths, acci dents, concerts, matters touching dis trict industries, etc. Write the names of persons very distinctly. Dont bother about grammar or spell ing ; it's the editor's work to look after those trifles. The barest skeleton is enough. Write only on one side of the paper. Write your name and address on some corner-not for publication, but to prove good faith. Give information ; but let criticism alone.

A CURIOUS GRAVE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914

A CURIOUS GRAVE. In the old churchyard on the Mar ienstrasse, which leads into the mar ket-place of Hanover, there is a some what remarkable grave, which affords a striking commentary on the van ity of human intentions. The grave contains all that is left of a woman who was laid to rest more than 130 years ago, and the monument with which it is surmount ed is of a very solid nature. The tra dition runs that the dead woman was a beauty in her day, and that, fearing that by some chance her grave might be opened, and the ravages of mortal ity exposed to view, she took every precaution to preserve the seal of the grave unbroken. The inscription on the front of the .pedestal runs as follows: - "Henriette Juliane Caroline von Ruling (nee Willich). Born at Nim burg the l!)th of January, 1756, died at Hanover the 15th of April, 1782. She gave three sons to Heaven, and having lived on earth as she now lives Above, was permitted to hasten to lier Eternal Home." In the rearward face of the sto...
