This terser is by Dudley de Bazan ex Charity, and has . scored leading honors at o.Ur best shows.

THE LOVE ANIMALS. ueorge Morgan, who lives at the dispen sary, Violet Town, writes:—Dear Uncle Ben, —I wish "to enter for the competition for boys from 13 to 18 years of age. For my subject I will take a true case of the love of animals for one another. This is it, writ ten in the way I like to write:—Bunny and his mother were very happy. It was a miid afternoon, and Bunny's mother thought they would take a nap. A,fter a little searching they found just what they were looking for— & nice long log near the bank of a creek. It was half filled with worm-eaten wood, but at the end of the hollow there was a nice, comfy "room." The "room" just held with ease Bunny and his mother; and, after a little shuffling about, they were settled, and, with a sigh of contentment, -Bunny nestled close up against his mother, and went to sleep. So soundly did they sleep that they did not hear footsteps, and, when they heard a knock at the end of the log, they "both started round towards the open ...

OUR LETTER BOX THE HISTORY OF GOLDSBOROUGH [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

THE HISTORY OP GOLDSBOROUGH Kodert S. Byrnes, who lives at 36 Elm. street, Northcote, writes'Dear Uncle Ben,— I was pleased to see my last letter printed in the Young Folks' Page, and I -would like to write again. This time I shall v/rite "The History of Goldsborough," from information collected from my father, my mother and a few old men whom I knew there. It is two years since I left there, and I like to hear from . there—old friends and associa tions are better than, new ones, I think; don't you? Well! . About 130 miles N.W, of iMel-bourne, on the main railway line to Mil dura, lies a quiet little village. On the same, land, 50 years ^go, aborigines held their dances and other ceremonies. In 1S66 a party of prospectors were prospecting in a neighboring gully, and, coming across a large boulder, broke it, finding that it was well streaked with gold. Concluding that there must be a reef near "by, they began a shaft and soon discovered a very rich reef which, at the. first crushing,...

THE WISE BIRDS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

THE WISE! BIRDS When people say, as.th'ey frequently do, ' "A little bird told* me so," I used to wonder so mueh—don't you?— How ever the bird couM know. How ever a creature so small and shy Could, know the news before you or I. But one fine day, as I walked along, When plenty of birds were about, Some preening their wings, some singing a song. I found their secret out. At least, the following are my views As to how the birds gefc hold of the news. Tall telegraph posts you have often seen. As high as the tops of the trees, And on the wires that are threaded between Bit birds in twos and in threes; And along those wires, as of course you know, The telegraph messages come and go. So every message that comes and goes, And each little bit of news. Is first of all known by swallows and crows, And birds of all sizes and hues. But ttie silly birds whisper in mother's ear, Sometimes, the things we don't want her to Vl pflT. 1-jeesie Pope, in "Girls' Realm."

A DONKEY'S TALE [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

A • DONKEY'S TALIS -Neddy was a little donkey "belonging to a coster in the East End of Lon don. Heavy loads, hard blows, and kicks than carrots fell to poor Neddy s lot, until one day there came a sudden change. Say, Bill," cried Jem, "wotevei* are you dressing up your moke like that for? Going to a circus?" Now Neddy had often exchanged a word or two with Bill's donkey, and envied his lot, for Bill's donkey was always well fed, always kindly treated, and never had to draw more than he could carry. "Ain't you 'eard?" said Bill. "There's a grand parade of 'orses and. donkeys nr'Ide Park to-day!" "And you are going, are you?" sneered Jem* "Should think i am," said Bill stur dily. "There are prizes to "be giv' away, and a real duchess 'ands them to yer." "Frizes!" said Jem mournfully; "you get a prize for that moke o' yours. Why, it's a perfick mongrel, that's wot it is—a perfick mongrel. 'E! can't 'old a candle to my Neddsr." "Maybe," said Bill. "I don't say my moke 'as the pedigree ...

Mrs Dane saw them coming', and smiled, well-pleased with their love for her pretty baby girl, who laughed little crowing-, chuckling1, gurgles of deJJg'ht as the children surrounded her go-oart, a dainty affair with a hood which tilted backwards or forwards for the protec tion of its tiny inmate from the wea ther, "My! We've got pink ribbons in our hat to-day, Miss Vanity! I like blue ones to match her eyes best, Mrs Dane/' exclaimed a tall girl, who was shaking her long golden curls in front of Miss Baby, who tried to catch them in her fat, dimpled hands. "Do get out of the way, Rose! We want to see her too!" Tessy Field said, jealously. "May I give her a sugar stick, Mrs Dane?" a.sked a small girl. "Not to-day, dear.

"It's time you settled down and made something of your life. You have crammed enough sensation into a handful of months to last you as long as you live, and a taste of the hum drum won't hurt you.

A TRUE STORY. Writing- from Bamawm, Vic., Mr Wil liam John Youill, late of Harvey town, Eaglehawk, Vic., says: "In regard to the statement I gave yoa some years ago as to my cure of Kidney complaint, I may say that a short time since I had occasion to be medically examined and was entirely free from any complaint." Mr Youill's original statement was as follows: "I feel it a duty I owe to you and to suffering humanity to send you this letter, in the earnest hope that others who may be suffering as I was from that dread complaint, Bright's Disease of the kidneys, may take cour age and learn from my experience to adopt the same method of treatment that I did, feeling sure that by so doing they will be saved much pain and misery, and, perhaps, an early grave. This may seem to some a remarkable statement to make, but it can be sub stantiated by anyone who will take the trouble to inquire for themselves from me or of my friends who were with me at the time. Despite all the skill and atten...
