I _ 11 "there's peace in a clear Ha vana, ' Herr Stark, a noted German smoker who died recently, had Ms share of peace in this world, for dar ing sixty years of his life he con sumed more than half a million ci gars. Shortly before he smoked in; last Havana he wrote "During my long lifetime I esti mate that I have smoked more than 500,000 cigars, an average of noil than twent}-two daily for siiif years. I have thus enjoyed 10,5® hours of • such happiness as no so man could have given ms, and was well worth the £6,000 that pur chased it. My cigars have been tfe one solace and sweetener of my life and my only regret in lean's? it that I cannot bring my record to a million." Herr Nanas, an .Austrian, was ev. more devoted to "My Lady tine." From the time he was 2 years old Herr Nanas kept an eiaci account of all he purchased-W what he. paid for it.

CHAPTER XII. HOW THEY SLIPPED GUT OF OLD RUSTCHUK. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 31 October 1914

CHAPTER XII. HOW THEY SLIPPED GUT OF OLD RUSTCHUK. There had been a few changes in his plans. Why, bother seeking the door of th« tavern when his window would serve the same end ?. It was open, and a dozen times his head had been thrust forth to seek fresh air, since his room had a distinctly stale, musty odour ; and at the same time he was ip the habit of sweeping his eyes around that part of the moun tain panorama that fell within the scope of his vision. Some clouds, harbingers of luck in his interest, had swept up from the Btorm nest to the south-west, and occasionally screened the pale mis tress of the night skies. Dugdale wished there were more : indeed, the gloomiest night would have been preferable to this one with a moon, in so far as making their escape was concerned, though once among the wild roads of the moun tains they might be very, glad of the illumination, with perilous preci pices encompassing them on every hand. v. Dugdale had boldly determined to abandon most of ...

CHAPTER XI. DEFYING THE WAR TIGER OP THE BALKANS. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 31 October 1914

CHAPTER XI. DEFYING THE WAR TIGER OP . THE BALKANS. " When this matter had been satis factorily adjusted, and Vladimir be came a party to the rebellion against General Gratschefi's authority in the Balkans, Owen Dogdale felt inspired with new ^eal. He would have attempted the task alone and single-handed., if necessity had compelled such a thing ; but the chances of success were meagre at any time, and almost hopeless with out the aid of some one who knew the wild mountain roads, and how by a sagacious trick those who pur sued might possibly be baffled. For it was a foregone conclusion that the chase would be hot enough to please the most fastidious, once the iron general understood how he had been mocked and defied by this stranger within the gates. Accordingly Dugdale now set about forming a plan of action. The Cossack had a bright mind, and) this was directly in line with what he considered his strongest point—action. His suggestions assisted tne tra veller not a little in making...

Dugdale was charmed with her can dour, and made Bure he would be able to accomplish what was of vi tal importance, granting that all other matters had been properly ar ranged. "And you will, of course, make a small parcel of what you need most. Not too large to prevent its being carried on a horse if we are compel led to travel in the saddle." "Yes, yes. Monsieur, you do not neglect the details. I fear the general may have more trouble to. detain you than he expected. At the same time, I am uneasy, conscious of the fact that we are almost strangers, and"-— "I am a man of honour, I assure you." "Merci, it was not that. I was about to say that since we have only recently met I have no claim upon you, and still you insist on forcing me to accept favours that may cost you dear." "All that was settled some time ago. I am also a man very much like GratscheS in some respects, and it pleases me to do this for you. Now, .kindly say no ...

OR, THE WBfiJMG OF ISOLDE. Ay St, George Rathborne, Author of "Omar Kassam," etc. SYNOPSIS OP PREVIOUS PARTS. Owen Dugdale, the wealthy owner of an estate in Leinster ; an artist, journalist, and idler, and an impul sive .Irishman, has mapped out for himself a month's journey in South ern Russia. His passport, through a blunder on the part of the officials, calls for Owen Dugdale and wife, a luxury he has never possessed. Naturally this leads to strange and ridiculous complications as in Bohe mian fashion he wanders over ■ the plains and mountains of Russia. Evening is setting in as his telega driven by Vladimir, a Don Cossack, who fears neither man nor devil, ap proaches the town of Rustchuk. Shortlj after passing a mounted mili tary, officer and two Cossacks, our traveller discovers a wrecked telega in his path, On investigation Owen is startled by the discovery that the luckless vehicle is occupied by a lady and he becomes conscious of a strange shock on finding himsslf gaz ing e...

The Riponshire Advocate. Published every Saturday Morning. SATURDAY. OCTOBER, 31 1914. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 31 October 1914

Published every Saturday Morning. Is ATU RDAY. OCT 0 B ER, 81 193 4 Another step in the movement for a uniform valuation for Vic toria was reached last week, when the conference of the Municipal Councils approved of the scheme. The motion carried was submitted by the Wycheproof Shire Council, and it affirmed, the desirability of having '' one valuation for pro perty, to be adopted compulsory for rating and taxing purposes by all public authorities.'' Under existing conditions there is a great want of co-operation among the authorities entrusted with the fixing of valuations, and the dif ferent standards adopted lead to confusion, and at times produce puzzling results. Apart from this aspect there is the important question of economy, as valua tions cost money, which after all come out of the pockets of those whose properties have been val ued. We have no less than four systems operating in Victoria at present, and the movement is a timely one before we are burdened with another syst...

NORTHERN HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 31 October 1914

NORTHERN HOPE. The; mine manager's report, to be submitted at the half-yearly meeting of the Northern Hope, reads, inter alia Work has been continuously carried on with very good prospects in all the drives, and the gold obtained is of a good sample. A block 400 by 320, with average prospects of over 2 oz to the fathom, is ready for panelling as soon as the rises are up from the bottom level. The wash development drives having lost levels, we are now cutting the drives into blocks for drainage pur poses, to be ready for panelling by the time the reef drives from the bottom level are far enough advanced . to rise into the deep ground. This will be about three weeks hence, in the north end.

STATE SCHOOL PATRIOTIC LEAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 31 October 1914

STATE SCHOOL PATRIOTIC LEAGUE, j The idea of each district school in spector appointing a treasurer to re ceive patriotic subscriptions from child ren throughout this particular district has been found to work admirably. Taking the North-eastern district (Mr R. \Y. Annita'ge, M.Sc.; F.G.S., &c.)as an example, Mr Arthur J. Edwards (Beechworth) was appointed treasurer. An enthusiastic central meeting' was held. Mr Armitage handed over £3 to commence the fund and the promise of a liberal monthly salary donation, and thus started the bail rolling. Teachers and children from little mountain schools, not to mention larger establishments, poured in voluntary subscriptions from salaries and other donations. So prompt and liberal was the response that in a few days M r Edwards was able to report " £150 received." This good work is stiil continuing.
