A GREAT VICTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914

A GREAT VICTORY. Two largo orchards, side 'by side, brought much profit to Parmer Lee, and much trouble, for the orchards were considered fair game by the boys of the village, and two orchards are harder to watch than one. One day, looking from one orchard to the other, Lee Baw a small boy shin down a tree, and, uttering a word of warning to another imp still up among the apples, ran off. Lee reach ed that tree in record time. "Got yer this time," he roared to the boy, almost hidden among the leaves. "Come down!" Getting no answer, and not being in a hurry, he sat down and waited, un til a servant brought him a note that had just been dropped through the letter-box. He did not wait after he had read it, as follows: - "Some people 'as apples, some 'as serice. You bin watchin' a pair of trousis stuffed with straw, and we bin gettin' your apples from the other orchard. Great victory for sence. The most tiresome people in this world are not the bores, but the peo ple who are bored and w...

THE MORTIFICATION OF MISS PHIPPS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914

THE MORTIFICATION OF MISS PHIPPS. By PERCY VERE. Miss Phipps bad an admirer. Won der as people might, it could not be gainsayed. He had appeared at Al ton Housea- gentleman of fine pre sence, elegant dress, and, moreover, ybung-and engaged board-"presum ably for the season." Now Miss Phipps was not young. Her brother-proprietor of the Alton -brutally declared that she was fifty. Mis Phipps announced herself to be "thirty-four, nearly thirty-five-no longer a young girl, of course." Whatever her attractions might be, it had certainly been a long time since anyone accused the lady of extreme youth. But Mr. Lorraine Lewis was young -twenty-five, possibly twenty-six-and it was evident that he came to the house because Miss Phipps was there. He was attentive-more, he was de voted to the lady. "Well, there's no accounting for tastes, as the woman said when she kissed the cow," declared her sister in-law. Mrs. Phipps was pretty and plump. She had two pretty and plump chil dren. She was impu...

The Conly Concert. A FINE PERFORMANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914

The Conly Concert. A FINE PERFORMANCE. Considering the .stormy nature of the weather, there was an excellent atten dance at the Conly concert given in the Lismore Mechanics' JIall on Friday night of hint week. The performance was a rare musical treat for country concert-goers, and every item of the varied program was heartily enjoyed. Even without the inclusion of Madame Conly's numbers, the performance would have been considered well worth the price of admission ; with them, the audience got considerably more than value for their money. Madame Conly's beautiful soprano voice, her charming personality, her brilliant execution of the most difficult songs, her trills and runs, and the richness of her sustained notes, roused her hearers to the highest pitch of enthusiasm, and every number was greeted with a spontaneous burst of applause. She appeared five times on trie program, thrice in solos and twice in the Conly quartette. Her first song was "Poor Wandering One," from "Pirates of P...

Which Leg? [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914

Which Leg? In a small town in the West of Scotland the town cleric, who was a bit of a "character," had the-mis fortune to lose his leg in a railway ac cident. As a mark of appreciation and es teem for his long services, the coun cil unanimously agreed to replace his loss with an artificial leg, which they did as soon as he was sufficiently re covered. A few months afterwards the town clerk, who was generally known by his Christian name, Paul, was unfor tunate enough to have his other leg fractured In a trap accident. Naturally the mishap became food for town gossip, and one old wife, in discussing the matter with a neigh bor, was overheard saying "It's a grey .bad business for Paul, pulr man; but is't his ain leg or the leg that belangs to the toon that's broken?"

A CHAPTER OF MISFORTUNE. The Story of Charles Tellier, the Inventor of Cold Storage. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914

A CHAPTER OF MISFORTUNE. The Story of Charles Tellier, the Inventor of Cold Storage. A modest funeral wending Its way through the streets .of Paris last Oc tober carried to his last resting-place the originator of a great modern in dustry. Charles Tellier, like so many inventors, made fortunes for others, while he lived and di"d in obscurity and comparative poverty. How the idea of cold storage first entered his fertile brain forms a curi ous anccdote. He called, some fifty years ago, on Baron Haussman, the "maker of modern Paris," to submit models of weaving machinery. It was a terribly hoi afternoon, and the Pre fect, chatting pleasantly to the engin eer, laughingly observed, "Better de sign a freezing machine. Now or never is surely the time." The subject gave Tellier food for thought, and a freezing machine he invented. After sundry ups and downs, a lost, lawsuit, an imprison ment for debt, he saw his machine in actual working to produce artificial ice for cafes, etc., and made ...

Noble Soul. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914

Noble Soul. "I was a fool ever to marry you!" sobbed Mrs. Winks. "Now, my dear," said Winks, no bly, "I cannot permit you to take the blame for that. It was I who was the fool for ever asking you. The mis take was not yours, but mine." The lords of creation are prone to look with contemptuous eyes upon a woman who is canless in matters of dress, and the woman who thinks to silence them or alter their opinion by a wilful or courageous show of "Inde pendence" in the mode or manner of her attire, will learn all too soon that she has but earned their contempt and, wrought no advantage to herself. Within the limits of her sphere In life/ such as all the world Is willing to concede to her, it is her right, as it is her duty and pleasure, to avail herself of dress to add to her per sonal appearance and attractions, and to help win and hold the regard or admiration of an whose good opinion may be desirable. Time! and circum stances, place and surroundings, must always enter into the solutio...

The Bull Didn't Know. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914

The Bull Didn't Know. A story is told of a great English personage who thought everybody knew or ought to know him. One day he was walking through a field when a'bull addressed him in an undertone, and made for him with his head down and his horns in a position to raise him. He was a Minister, a man of dignity and of political power. But he ran. He ran surprisingly well. He ran bet ter than ever he did for office, and lie got to the fence first. He clambered over, out of breath and dignity, and found the owner of the bull contem plating the operation. "What do you mean, sir," asked the irate statesman, "by having an iilfur iated animal like that roaming over the field?" "Well, I suppose the bull has some right in the field," said the -farmer. "Right? Do you know who I am, sir?" gasped the baronet. The farmer shook his head. "I am the Right Honorable Sir " "Then why on earth didn't you tell the bull?" , said the farmer. "To make the wheels of the day's work run smoothly," says the vi...

UNSKILFUL TEMPER. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914

UNSKILFULTEMPER. One 'would think that there could be no end to the resources of anger. Men use it in so squandering a way, that one is surprised that the stock. doeB not run out. But even thia wastefulness of the precious commo dity is not censurable as the want of skill and good taste with which it is employed. _ It Is not economised. It is not put to good purposes. It is squandered. It is not skilfully shot, as a marksman, shoots at a target. Indeed, men show clearly enough that they do not know the value of anger. A good article of anger is worth far more than the best gun-powder, and ought to (be used with an economy at least equal to that of the sportsman, who never burns powder needlessly. What should be thought of a sportsman who should go on firing his gun out of the window? Or what of one who should go about the yard, the garden, ex ploding his gun every hour into the. air, hitting nothing? Yet so do men let off the precious force of temper invaluable treasure of anger.

DREAMS AND NIGHT TERRORS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914

DREAMS AND NIGHT TERRORS. "Anyone who has not the nature of a cabbage is neurotic," said Dr. Leon ard Guthrie in a lecture on "The Ner vous Child" before the Child Study Society. I-Ie gave no definite advice as to what should be done with ner vous children, but he asked that they should be treated with sympathy, and that their parents should not put down all the children's troubles to some form of organic disease. He de scribed the night-terrors of nervous children as occurring between the years of three and eight. If the child suffers from slight indigestion, he he said, it is seldom terrified by pain, .but by horrible faces. A stuffy bed room will make it dream of being strangled. Cold limbs often cause a , child, to get terrors of icebergs or ava anches, and lying in. an uncom fortable position brings dreams of tor ture chambers. All its mental re sponses to sensations are quadrupled in its dreams, and they bring on in tensified memories of past troubles only faintly connected :w...

MOMENTS OF INTEREST. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914

MOMENTS OF INTEREST. Most dogs gel. their full growth in ;one year. Sheep pastured on hillsides are near-sighted in one eye. The tongue of a wild jinimal is its doctor. The owl can see farther at night than any other bird or animal. It sometimes takes a year for the bite of a rat to heal up. The turtle lives to be at least fifty years old. Sunflower seeds will attract rats where toasted cheese will fall. In getting its food at night a rab bit sometimes travels ten miles. A bull in a rage will become quiet at sounds of a fiddle. The average boy of ten or twelve years travels twenty miles in doin; his playing on Saturdays. A fox can dig faster than a hoy with a spade.

THE EVILS OF SLOPING WRITING. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914

THE EVILS OF SLOPING WRITING. Comparatively few people are aware oil what strong grounds the teaching of children to write a sloping hand has been condemned by medical au thorities. It is condemned because it causes injury both to the spine and to the eyesight. To this practice many cases of lateral curvature of the spine are traced. The spine tends to become bent exactly in the posi tion taken by the child when in the act of writing. Mr. iJernard Roth, an authority 011 spinal diseases, says "The position of writing, as generally practised, is, more frequently than anything else, an initial cause of la teral and other curvatures not. due to diseased bone or infantile paralysis. . . . This vicious posture during writ ing is due to the unfortunate custom of. teaching a slanting handwriting .from left to right, upwards obliquely, .whereas the natural direction of I li - handwriting ought to be really in the opposite direction." Mr. Noble.Smith, surgeon of the City Orthopaedic Iio.-i pn...

CULTIVATE GOOD HABITS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914

CULTIVATE GOOD HABIT8. The education of an Infant should commence as soon as it is horn as good or bad habits are formed during childhood. If, for example/ a baby ic fed every time it cries, it soon beginB to understand that by crying it gets what it desires, but by gratifying its demands against our better judgment we are instilling into the unconscious infant a lesson in selfishness and greed which may persist through its wholo life. A habit scarcely less harmful is giving it something to Buck to "keep it quiet." .Many parents leave the duty of in stilling good habits into their chil dren to the teachers in schools, for getting that by the time school life begins habits have been formed that may mar or make the child's career for life. Habits and character are bound together; one cannot have a good character with bad habits. The habit of obedience is one of the first to be enforced. Very early in life a child will recognise right from wrong, but perhaps at first the wrong path is ...

AN ABSENT-MINDED MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914

AN ABSENT-MINDED MAN. She is a Kensington, girl, and has recently married the dearest fellow in the world. She is fully aware of the latter fact; nor docs she hesitate to mention it to her friends. Indeed, so recent is her marriage that some ot' her acquaintances have not yet had a chance to meet the most charming of his sex. Brief as the time has been, however, it has yet been long enough for her to discover that her husband is absent minded. The other day she was expecting a girl friend to lunch with her an.l make the acquaintance of this para gon. The guest, however, failed to make her appearance, though a care ful search of the husband's pocket.;; failed to reveal the note of invitation. It was a rainy day, and late in the afternoon the now-despaired-of guest made her appearance, wet and dishev elled. "What on.earth is the matter?" cried the bride.
