THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., London and Melb. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XVI. A Sporting Chance. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 4 September 1914
THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT. By FRED M. WHITE. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., London and Melb. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER X'VL A Sporting Chance. Gilray thought hard as lie looked at Daniel Harley. So these people ■svere thieves, after all. Nobody but a criminal with some shady proposi tion would have approached a man in this way. In ordinary circumstan ces, as a man of reputation, Gilray would have risen to his feet and left the house without another' word. There was no occasion to tell him that Daniel Harley was going to make some dishonorable proposal. The very attitude of the miser was eloquent of that, the ^furtive glance, the hoarse whisper, all' were so many signs that something underhand wis intended. Gilray hesitated. He knew perfect ly well that lie was not to be permit ted to obtain this money lie needed by legitimate means. People do not scatter sums of five thousand pounds as one scatters crumbs for the birds. Neither was such a sum as this...

MILL-BOY MILLIONAIRES. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 4 September 1914
MILL-BOY MILLIONAIRES. "I think I have succeeded because I cared more for ray credit than for my clothes." To Mr. Frederick Weyer haeuser, the lumber king and "secret millionaire" of America, who died re cently, is attributed this saying. It is probably true, for Weyerhaeuser, whose wealth is estimated at any thing up to £100,000,000, attributed his unusual success to his ability to gain and keep the trust of everyone with whom he came into contact. Very little is known of the personal ity of Weyerhaeuser, whose entire life-work was based on the idea of secrecy. He went to America when lie was about eighteen years of age, and began life as a youth in a saw mill. Ultimately he bought the mill and laid the foundation of his huge fortune, when, while on a visit to Wis consin forests, he realised that, for all their vastness, they were not in exhaustible, and that within a com paratively few years the supply of lumber would be incommensurate with its demand. He therefore began to buy ti...

THE REWARD. A ROMANCE OF THE KENSINGTON GARDENS. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 4 September 1914
THE REWARD. A ROMANCE OF THE KENSINGTON GARDENS. The horseshoe lay close to the bench in Kensington Gardens where Brie Mallory sat and shivered in his dingy suit. He rose and picked it up, half-ashamed of himself for his super stition. •'They say these things bring a man luck," he reflected, bitterly, "so I'll risk it. Luck! Great Scot! I've al most forgotten how to spell the word." He had had a terrible morning. He had been looking for work; it was the kind of work which it is hard to find— the unskilled labor of the clerk. He had lost his berth three weeks pre viously through the bankruptcy of the firm, and for twenty-one days had put in the hardest toil of which he was capable in endeavoring to find a fresh situation. This morning his wander ings had brought him to Bayswater. He had arrived ten minutes too late— the position was filled. Utterly weary and broken, Eric Mallory had turned into the Gardens to rest, and that is how he came to espy the little horse shoe that glistened ...

ABERDEEN MAN'S LUCK. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 4 September 1914
ABERDEEN MAN'S LUCK. A visit which an Aberdeen business gentleman named Mr. A. M. Suther land paid to Rome about a year ago lias had a somewhat unexpected but pleasing sequel. While travelling in the vicinity of the Italian capital, Mr. Sutherland was accosted by a man be longing to the hawking fraternity and induced to buy as a memento of his visit a statuette, to ail appearances made of bronze. The figure was that of a Roman soldier, and the price paid for it was thirteen lires, equivalent to 10/10 in English money. Shortly afterwards Mr. Sutherland was travelling between Florence and Venice, and at a wayside junction a travelling bag, which formed part of his luggage, was missing. The bag contained the statuette, and its loss was reported to Cook's Tourist Agency. M nths passed, however, and Mr. Sutherland heard nothing of his missing bag, but recently the bag was recovered and forwarded to the owner. The statuette was found in tact, and, although not attaching much value to his ...

Thq Diabolic Mummy Case. AX UXTKAOKDlXAIIY STOUY. Everyone has heard of the malign Egyptian mummy case -which was brought to the British Museum some years ago, and whose piesence dealt death and disaster to attendants and others who lookod upon it. A story is now being tokl in well-informed cir cles which is said to have emanated fro 14 one. of the Museum authorities. Fiom this it would appear that sev eral of the Museum attendants, con .Vinccjl that they v.-ern in danger of their lives, presented an ultimatum that the cofliu-lid must bo removed from their vicinity or ttiey would re sign. Thoir demand was consider ed by the curators, und, in view of the catalogue of calamities that somehow seemed connected with the mummy case, their demand was con sidered reasonable., A replica was accordingly made and painted in exact facsimile, and this, was exhibited to the public as the real thing, 110 outsider being any the wisc-r or the worse.

PERFECT WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 4 September 1914
PERFECT WOMEN. If any woman wishes to know if she is a perfect specimen of her sex she has only to apply to the rules laid down for ascertaining the fact, and figure out the results. First as to height, tastes differ, but the Medicean Venus is aft. oin. in height, and this is held by many sculptors and artists to be the most admirable stature. For a woman of 5ft. 5in., 1381b. is the proper weight, and if she be well formed she can stand another 101b. without greatly showing it. When the arms are extended she should measure from tip of middle finger to tip of middle finger just 5ft. 5in.. exactly her own height. The length of her hand should be just a tenth of that, of her foot just a sev enth, and the diameter of her chest n fifth. From the thighs to the ground she should measure just what she measures from the thighs to the top of the head. The knee should come exactly midway between the thigh and the heel. The distance from the elbow to the middle finger should be the same as the ...
BIG BUBBLES. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 4 September 1914
BIG BUBBLES. How would you like to be able to blow a soap bubble as big as a trunk? This has been accomplished by Dr. Boys (writes A. L. Hodges, in the "Associated Sunday Magazines of America"), who has made them 30 inches in diameter. With large bub bles, of course, many experiments may be attempted that are not feas ible with small ones; The solution used is the well-known Plateau's Bolu tion, which consists of one part ole ate of soda to forty of water, to this being added a third its volume of glycerine. As a large bubble needs it good deal of feeding while it is be ing blown, Dr. Boys used a serrated cambric cloth put as a rim on the bubble-end of his pipe. This was first saturated with the solution, and as the bubble grew and expanded it was fed from this. Scientifically, a bubble is a won derful thing. The film gets so thin just before it 'bursts that there are only a few molecules from one side to the other. A bubble with the same density inside as the air outside is a perfe...
II. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 4 September 1914
II. "Is Miss Hazelton at home?" The trim maid-servant who appeared at the door of the banker's substantial residence on Hampstead Heath re garded the visitor's lovely face with some curiosity and interest. She knew it well as belonging to Miss Al thea Sanden, leading lady and trage dienne at the Galaxy Theatre. "Yes, miss," she smiled. "Come this way, please." Althea, a vision of delight in tawny colored ninon and lace, followed her conductress along a softly-carpeted corridor until she came to a portiere hung before an open door. Here the girl paused and, drawing aside the curtain, "Miss Althea Standen!" she announced, in important tones, and stood admiringly aside as Althea pass ed in with a faint silken rustle and a delicious fragrance of violets. Already in anticipation the maid was describing in detail to her fellow servants the beauty and wonderful clothes of the famous actress, and, bubbling with excitement, she dropped the curtain into place and sped away to the kitchen. At ...
DICKENS' CAT. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 4 September 1914
DICKENS' CAT. Charles Dickens was a lover of animals, and like all true lovers .ie was likely to become the slave of Mis pets. Williamina, a little white cat, was a favorite with the entire house hold, but showed an especial devotion to its master. She selected a cornor of his study for her kittens, and brought them in from the kitchen one by one. i\lr. Dickens had them taken away again, but Williamina only brought them quietly back. Again they were removed, 'but the third time of their return she did not leave them in the corner. Instead, she placed them at her master's feet, and taking her stand beside them, looked implor ingly up at him. That settled the question. Thereafter the kittens be longed to the study, and they made themselves royally at home, swarm ing up the curtains, playing about the writing-table, and scampering behind the bookshelves. Most of the family were given away; only one remained, entirely deaf, and known, from her devotion to Dickens, as "the master's cat."...
PONY'S SWIMMING FEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 4 September 1914
PONY'S SWIMMING FEAT. The s.s. Loanda lay pitching and rolling in tho West African surf off Accra, whilst cargo of various sorts was being discharged over her sides into surf boats, manned by Kroo boys. Various shouts went up when a couple of bales of Manchester goods fell out of the 'slings and into the sea. Shouts of glee from the Krooboys, but something stronger from the mate, who was in charge of unloading. The next load was a grey pony, which we had shipped at Las Palmas, consigned to a Government official at Accra. Slings were fixed under ti' pony's body, and he was hoisted by rope and derrick, then lowered into the waiting surf boat 'which was pitching up and down. As soon as the pony felt his feet touch the boat bottom, he started plunging about, and as these surf boats are little lar ger than a ship's boat, the expected happened. First the natives jumped clear of his heels into the shark-in fested sea, and 4he next moment the pony also, was swimming about. With shouts and g...
THE BUTTER MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 4 September 1914
THE BUTTER MARKET. ADERESS BY MR. A. W. WILSON. Business was suspended for half-an-hour at the annual meet ing of the Leongatha Butter Fac tory on Saturday to hear Mr Wilson, manager of the Gippsland and Northern Selling Co., express his views on the export of the coming season's butter. He said that the people were passing; through strenuous times, for the great war was affecting opera tions in Australia. What effect the war would have on the butter market it was difficult to say. with the Siberian supplies locked up, the shortage on the London market should mean good prices far Australian butt.er. Many other factors governed the situation. The Imperial Parliament had stated its intention of standing behind the banks to keep the •wheels of the financial machinery in motion. The premiers, also, of the several States had made a similar promise regarding the Aus tralian banks. With the prospect of the ocean highways not being open it was thought that the butter would have to be held i...
