"What do you want to break up the party for?" asked-another. "Be a good fellow," said a third. Now that 'Bie a good fellow"-well, hvery man knows what that means. Every man has done something he did not want to do and ought not to have done for fear someone might think he was not a "good fellow." Thie young man hesitated.

It hats Iele extraetcd for a great mlany years and is well keown the world over as a retmelll agent against rheumatism anrl allied corn plaints. It is a volatile, colourless liquid obltained by distillation of fresh needles, -young twigs, and one year-old cones . of our western antd southern yellow pines. In order to produce oil of the hest quality, fresh green needles miust be collect ed during the spring of the year, probably in the beginning of June.

A Monster of the Deep. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 1 July 1914

A Monster of the Deep. I The most lormidable andl repulsive creature of the sulmarinle worldl is the giant octopus, coxunonly known as the spicder-crab. It is master of the scaled and finned things that live in the ocean's depths. It is alike hideous ill ppearance and habits, and more than one daring coral hunter andn penarl-diver has found death in its terrible arms. The spider-crah flourishes and at tains its greatest size in the warmn waters of the Japan seas. An adequate idea of the hideousness of the creature's appearance can only be formed by those who have come across the monster in its lair. Its shape bears a strong resemblance to the familiar spinning insect. The long legs, which often exceed forty feet in length, are, thickly covered witli coarse black hair. The body, often fifteen feet in cir cumference, is also covered with hair. in which hbrnacles and tiny shellfish nmake their home. When attackced, the spider-crab exudes an overpowering odour, clhich permea tes the wat...
