Sra,—-The Government is at its wife' end to solve tho land-aetHemont policy. Most of tho land in Victoria was purchased from tho Grown on a 20 years annual instalment. practically 6 per cent, on its capital value. If a Government has aright to sell on terms, ' it should have tl\e power to buy on terms.

Her Eyes Upon Him. A well-known, writer was present re cently at a dress rehearsal o£ a com edy played by amateurs. The re hearsal went well, but the hero, B—, seemed rather hard and cold. The novelist sat in a box next to a charm ing woman of middle age. She said, at the end of the third act, "It goes beautifully, doesn't it?" "Beautifully," said the gentleman. "But B doesn't make love to that pretty girl in as ardent a manner as ■I could wish. His love-making, in fact, strikes me as very tame and spiritless." The woman frowned. "He won't put any more spirit in it while I've got my eye on him, let me tell you," she said. "I'm Mrs. B

AIRMAN'S ROMANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 14 May 1914
AIRMAN'S ROMANCE. The story of M. Clianteloup, the famous French "looping airman,'? who recently gave demonstrations at Hen don; is a most romantic one. He was born at Beaune in 1890, and started work as a farm laborer at 8/4 a week, but his ambition had always been in the direction of motors and mechan ism. In 1909 he passed his tests for a chauffeur's licence, and drove a taxi cab at Nante3 for two years. After careful saving he managed to raise about £75, his tuition fee, and then went through the usual course at the Caudron school at Crotoy, where he passed the Aero Club tests for his pilot's certificate in July, 1911. In October of that year he commenced his military service as a sapper-avia tor. It was during his military service that Chanteloup created a sensation in France, on September 6, last, by being the first aviator to "loop the loop" and fly upside-down, Pegoud not having accomplished this feat until a fortnight afterwards. His daring ex periments earned for him fifte...
HIS STENOGRAPHER. As He Dictates to Her. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 14 May 1914
HIS STENOGRAPHER. As He Dictates to Her. Does she love you? Well, I wonder— Married twenty years, they say! You, so balil and fat and funny, Grubbing like a mole for money! Guess she likes to spend the plunder— Gee—she knows the way! She's a grand one — Lord, what dresses! Handsome, too, proud as a queen— With her doings in the papers, Dinners, dances, all the capers, Likes to lead the show, my guess is! You're the gold machine! If slifj knew you as I know you, Would she spend it—say? If she knew each trick and quibble, Little fishes hooked that nibble, Business murders—would she show you Such a grandstand play? You're a savage money maker— Good to her. though, sure—and me. Kind old pirate! What in thunder Does she think of you, I wonder? What neat stories do you take her— So she will not see? —Harriet Monroe in January "Smart Set."

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 14 May 1914
LADIES' LETTER. I never remember blouses that are calculated to go to the heart of every woman who appreciates an elegance achieved by simple methods and with out any apparent effect than at the present moment. They are now such a very important item of every kind of costume that the choice is as varied as the numerous distinctly different classes of designs, all worthy of se parate consideration. - From the simple shirt to the com plexity of the afternoon or demi-toil lette blouse of tulle is a far cry.' Com mencing at the bottom of the ladder, so to say, with the simple shirta, these in themselves provide food for deep reflection. It is the American women who look their best in the severest of tailor made shirts. I do not mean the wo man whose figure is at its best nor the pretty creature who can carry off, all kinds of fashionable follies and modish madnesses,, but the natural, homely American, who knows how to put on her colthes. The plain untrimmed blouse is most essential for ...
The Worm Turned. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 14 May 1914
The Worm Turned. The other day Sir Gilbert Parker, M.P., referring to Lord Rosebery's re mark that "most books in a library j ought to be .burned," toid of a lively exchange of compliments lie once had with a publisher. Sir Gilbert had been pointing out that in many cases, owing to the in ability of literary men to look after themselves, publishers made far more money out of 'books than their authors did. The publisher remarked that what Lord Rosebery should have said was that, "It was not most books, but most authors who should be burned." "That may be true," retorted Sir Gilbert, ".but judging from the pub lishers' share of the profits of the au thors' labors, most of the authors were too green to be burned!"
Followed Advice. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 14 May 1914
Followed Advice. In a country neighborhood there was an old woman who kept a small general shop, where she carried on a lucrative business. Unfortunately, she persisted £or a long time in car rying on her trade on Sunday, much to the scandal and disgust of a cer tain parish visitor, who entertained strictly orthodox views as to the ob servance of the Sabbath. The latter remonstrated with the shopkeeper, and eventually, much to the satisfaction ' of everybody con cerned, persuaded her to refrain from Sunday trading. &lt; A few days ago she met the old woman, who looked happy and prosperous. "I'm glad," said the parish visitor, "to. see that you are doing bo well. You have not lost anything by fol lowing my advice." "That's so, mum," was the reply; "but.you can't imagine how many of my customers come round the back way!"
