CONFESSIONS OF A LINER CHAPLAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 17 July 1914
CONFESSIONS OF A LINER CHAPLAIN. Tlicro is nothing that produces a reeling of speedy death quicker tlmn sea-sickness. It Is very rarely that nnyono actually succumbs to It, but If a person suffers from It badly It Is dif ficult to drlvo homo tho fact that re covery Is certain. I have seen all tho horrors of a deathbed sceno enacted over people suffering from an acute attack. Knowing that In ninety-nine cases out of a hundred it leaves no serious efTect, it Is very difficult to assume that you are ministering to the dying. And at times a perfectly sincere effort in this direction will terniinato In comedy. People Ho In their bunks pale as death. Tho chap lain Is fetched, and he Is assured by tho sufferer that burial at sea Is a cer tainty. Ho is of another opinion, but maintains if possible n sympathetic tone. I confess to having cultivated many hypocritical looks and senti ments, which 1 have sometimes enjoy ed. One night I was called to the bunk of an old man who had been inal de m...

"Nonsonso!" protested Austin My ers, pleasantly. "We'll travol back to gether. Grey has told mo your story, and I think you'ro a first-rnto fellow. Don't worry about the fare. I'll stand tho difference for the plcasuro of your company. Who says romance Is dead in these (lays? Why, you nre n living witness to the contrary. I'm suro Miss Nancy agrees with me." Nancy flushed and smiled shyly at tills raillery; then she sighed also, for in an hour's time her lover, Ivyrlo Beaumont, was to start for Cape Town en route for England; and, al though he was to return by the next boat, yet even the short separation of a few weeks was a trouble to lier. "You are too kind," replied Kyrle Beaumont, with a bow profound enough ,to indicate deep reverence, or possibly contempt. "My plans are already made and cannot be altered; my passage is taken. We shall part when we leave this house." And, turning rather abruptly away, he be gan to make Ills public ndtcux; it is more than probable he had already ...

On tho one and only day he played truant at Pembroke Dock his mother went to ask the schoolmaster IT ho could leave early to go out to tea. "And tills," he n marked sorrowfully, "1 have always regarded as hard lines." Half the failures in life, he said, are those of people who thought they could do something else better.

At Exeter he was taught singing by u lame man who waved his stick threat eningly when his pupils did not grasp a melody quickly.

THE SERVANT PROBLEM SOLVED. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 17 July 1914
THE SERVANT PROBLEM SOLVED. A society of women were having a mooting to discuss the never-ending question of cooks. It was the almost unanimous opinion of the assembly, after an hour's talk, that it was im possible to keep a cook more than a month without changing. "However," announced the president, "if any per son knows of an exceptional case, let her speak." At this a new member timidly rose. "The exception Is in my house,' she said. "How long have you had your cook?" asked the pre sident. "Over five years." The others stared in amazement. "Is this cook entiroly satisfactory as a cook?" "My husband thinks not, but she Btays, all the same." "How do you manage to keop her, then?" "Because she won't go!" "Aha!" The president regarded the now member with pity and scorn. "Mrs. Tonson," she said, "instoad of advancing case in which a longsought' solution might have been found, you exposo yourself as being worse off than any of your sisters. You show that by allowing this cook to stay o...
ANTICS PLAYED BY LIGHTNING. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 17 July 1914
ANTICS PLAYED BY LIGHTNING. T'" nntlos played by lightning aro sometimes nlmost beyond belief. A common trick is that of undressing its victims. In 189S two girls nnd an elderly woman were standing by a reaping machine (luring a storm. A lightning Hauli struck the woman and killed her on the spot, while the two girls were stripped to the skin, even their boots being torn from their feot. Otherwise they were safe and sound -and astonished. in 1S55 a man was struck by lit;' ning near Vallerois, in France, and stripped naked. All that could bo found afterwards of his clothcs was a shirt-sleeve, a few other shreds, and soino pieces of his hob-nalled boots. Ten minutes after ho was 6truck he regained consciousness, opened his eyes, complained of the cold, and inquired how ho happened to be naked. Such instances have 'been recorded again and again. In one case a man and two oxen were struck simultan eously, and all three killed. The man was found stripped to the Bkin, and his boots had be...

LADIES' LETTER. From "Ireno" in Melbourne. Miss lOadltli Walker's offer ot her place, "Yaralla," at Concord, in Syd ney. «s a homo for the new Govcrnoi Ucncrnl, was a bomb in tl.e social camp. Unlike the suffragists bombs, this one was packed with l°vo of country-Scotch country-and when it burst everyone was filled with, ad miration ami curiosity. There was a general rush to find out more about thIiecause Miss Walker has been for twenty years or so in the public .is H millionairess, the rising genera lion has an idea that she is on the shady side of time. Well, she is not. She is at high noon-just fifty years uti one hundred. Miss Walkers km. ness to young girls in society who have little means, 1ms for long been u matter of admiring comment. A trip to England for such is a quite usual gift. 1 do not know if plainness shuts a girl out from such generosity as jaunt in Europe, but it is a fact that the girls who are known to have gone as Miss Walker's guests weie all pretty and most o...
ABORIGINAL SUPERSTITIONS DEAD MEN'S NAMES NEVER MENTIONED. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 24 July 1914
ABORIGINAL SUPERSTITIONS DEAD MEN'S NAMES NEVER MENTIONED. By "Crystal." The Central Australian aboriginal (irmly believed that the spirit or coul of a deceased blackfellow immediately took up its abode in the body of an other living human being, or else continued its existence in that ot one of the lower animals. Of the former form of transmigration of the soul they stood in no dread whatever, evi dently regarding it as the natural and proper consequence following disso lution. The latter, however, they viewed with horror, it being in their minds the worst calamity that could possibly happen. Death, according to their ideas, never resulted naturally, the death of one ot their number be ing invariably attributed to the agency of an evil spirit they called "Tandooka." At the time ot which I write they subsisted entirely by hunt ing, and when oue o£ them fell sick a warrior or medicine man was se lected to remain in camp and attend to tile sick man, while the others were absent on the...

Will you please send him 'Indecent Orders (In Deacon's Orders) V "Have you a novel entitled 'She Combeth Mot Her Head (lie Cometh Not, She Said) ?' " 'Iviss Auntie (Quisante),' it you please.

" Two people who went to the Antarc tic-Ernest Joyce and the brave Frank Wild (the latter died with bcott)-searched in vain for a flea, one of the Kothschild family having offered £1000 for each specimen cap tured. But there were uo fleas; none on the explorers, none 011 the dogs, none in the blankets. What a coun try, says the Syuney "Sun."

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 24 July 1914
PROM VARIOUS SOURCES. Ono day a very humble and poor fellow, who appeared to have escaped the vigilance of the private police, managed to place himself in the path of King Christian of Denmark. The King, as' usual, full of kindness, stop ped, and said: "My good friend, and what can 1 do for you?" "Ah, your Majesty," answered the beggar, "what I humbly ask is a like ness of yourself!" King Christian looked rather aston ished. "1 would gladly give you one," said the monarch kindly, "but 1 do not carry any about with me." "Excuse me, your Majesty, but 1 think if you will look in your purse you will find one." The originality of the idea amused old King Christian, and the man went away the richer by a gold piece.

LOVE OF LITIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 24 July 1914
LOVE OF LITIGATION. A mania for going to law seems to possess !.o inconsiderable portion of our population. The cause lists of our courts lengthen with every term, and judges regard with dismay the frightful accumulation of cases. Cynical people insist that the im mense numb*. of young lawyers turned loose upon the community evrv year has something to do with the tremendous impulse that lias been g5~en to litigation within the last few years. Immoral glaziers out of em ploy have been known to incite idle boys to break the windows of exem plary citizens, with a view of creating a demanu for the services of a "panes taking" class, and it is asserted, libel lously, perhaps, that people who live in glass houses are egged on to throw stones at each other by newlv-Hedgcd counsellors, who hope to profit by the damage. However this may be, it is quito certain that tl - proportion of litigants to the population at large is much greater now than it was ten years ago. To be sure, the demand fo...
