JOHN LEE'S DREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 11 June 1914
JOHN LEE'S DREAM. Sentenced to death for the murder of Emma Keyse, lady-in-waiting to the late Queen Victoria, at Babbicombe, near Torquay, John Lee was brought out- for execution in Exeter Gaol on February 25, 1885. Overnight Lee had dreamt that three attempts would be made to carry out the sentence, but that all three would prove unsuccess ful, and his life be preserved. He re vealed this to Warder Bennett, who reported the circumstance to the go vernor of the prison. All possible pre caution was taken; but, nevertheless, Lee escaped the gallows. Everything having been made ready, Lee stood on the trap of the gallows, which had just recently been erected. The signal was given, and Berry, the executioner, pulled the lever-'but the trap refused to fall! The faces of all present expressed be wilderment. Berry gave the lever an other feverish pull, and the warders v,i cither side stamped upon the trap; but it would not move. Lee was then marched off, with the cap still over his face, ...

WOMAN'S WORLD. WHAT AM I REALLY LIKE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 11 June 1914
WOMAN'S WORLD. WHAT AM I REALLY LIKE. It iB a strange but undeniable fact that most people hardly ?^er hear their own voices. You may think that this sounds absurd, for you w:il sup pose that you can't help hearing your self when you are constantly speak ing. But you will realise tha: it is true if you remember what a shock it is to you, when you happen to be speaking in a roomful of talking peo ple, and they all suddenly ?top talk ing, leaving your voice going on alone. A thing of this kind gives you a grea*. start, because the voice sounds so strange and unfamiliar. It is also a very great surprise to bear yourself mimicked. You are al most certain to exclaim, "Who is that meant for?" and other people who are present will laugh and say, "Why, it is exactly like you-don't you re cognise it?" and then you realise how deaf to your own voice you have bee') for many years You never see your own face ei ther, except in a photograph ,and that is why a photograph is always some thing of n...
To the Gouty. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 11 June 1914
the Gouty. For those who are liable to attacks of gout, it is an excellent rule to re duce the allowance of butcher's meat, especially beef, taking it no oftener than once a day, and preferably at midday instead of in the evening. Di gestion goes on very slowly, if at all, during the hours 6f sleep, and the habit of eating meat at late dinner or supper is one of the chief causes tend ing to gout and rheumatism of the gouty type. Industry is essential to happiness and idleness is the friend of unliappi ness and ennui. Certain persons al ways will and always have existed who find employm nt distasteful. They are endowed with an indolent disposition, and enjoy nothing more than complete immunity from work and responsibility. Their intense dis like of work of all descriptions en ables them to be ever ready with I what they are pleased to consider an adequate excuse. . They "did not know," they "thought it had ibeen clone," they "believed it was to be done tomorrow," it was "too hot" or ...

The mansion, was gay with the flowers o£ the season-roses, of course, mixed with innumerable tall white lilies, which were in the per fection of their bloom. The best flor ists, the best decorators had been all day at Hansell House, and, under the directions of the Duchess of Tewkes bury, had made such a marked change in its appearance that Sheila felt she would scarcely know it. By the Duchess's orders she wore her lovely presentation dress and the magnifi cent rope of well-known pearls. Mrs. Bellairs was garbed in a' gown of pale grey velvet in the very latest style, and her husband's narrow chain of diamonds, with its glittering -pen dant, hung from her necl^ Beyond his message to Sheila, no word had 'been heard as to Bellairs, and the Duchess felt slightly annoyed at his absence on such an au...

MEDICAL MEMS. Coughs. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 11 June 1914
MEDICAL MEMS. Coughs. Experience lias shown that there are two distinct kinds of coughs-one proceeding from an affection of the lungs and air tubes, as in a simple cold, the other nroceeding from effer vescence in the stomach. The lung cough is a symptom which necessar ily requires attention, lest serious con sequences ensue. The stomach cough is a much more simple matter, and may easily he sot. rid of. It is caused by the effervescence of the food and drink which are put into the stomach. A knowledge of this fact ought to lead persona so affected to ponder n little on the nature of their ailment and the peculiarity of their digestive powers. Some Btomachs agree best with alkalis, others with acids; one person likes a bitter substance, an other a substance which is sour. The person who desires a satisfactory ex planation of these circumstances will consult his own physician. Many stomach coughs arise from an undue love' of sweets-sweet tea, sweet drinks, sweet cake, sweet custard, a...
CHAPTER XV. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 11 June 1914
CHAPTER XV. During the short remainder of the night of Sheila's hall, Peter Bellairs did not retire to rest. He was deadly weary, but his mind was so full of agitation that sleep was impossible. He had done fairly well in Paris, and had secured at the price of ten thou sand pounds the greater number of the diamonds which had been in the bracelet, but by no means all, for Le Fevre had sold some at a price which he took., care not to mention. Bel lairs, Holman, and young Mordecai felt that nothing more could be done, and the unhappy K.C. returned to his home stricken to the he-art's core. He put the diamonds which he had secured at so vast a sum into his safe, intending to take them in the morn ing to Mordecai to verify. He found himself tired and .depressed in a scene of brilliant gaiety, and, what was worst of all, he knew that, owi.ig to his wife's theft, he was again a comparatively poor man. But Bellairs thought very little dur ing the remnant of that short night either of the di...
Care of the Scalp. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 11 June 1914
Care of the Scalp. In order to cleanse the scalp, stir the white and yolk of an egg thor oughly together in a basin, add about one cupful of warm water; mix thor oughly with the egg, and apply it to the scalp in the same way as soap; after which rinse out in warm water and dry with a towel; then, if pos sible, expose the hair for a few min utes to the sunshine and pure air. If this treatment is applied about once a week it will thoroughly clean the scalp, keep the hair in perfect condi tion, and prevent it from falling out.
The Ear. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 11 June 1914
The Ear. The human ear is a delicate piece of mechanism. That which we ordin arily designate as the "ear," is, after all, only the mere outer porch of a series of winding passages which lead from the world without to the world within. Certain of these passages are filled with liquid, besides having mem branes stretched like parchment cur tains across the corridor at different points. When a sound-wave strikes these they are turned into vibrations and made to_ tremble like the head of a drum does'wlien struck with a stick or with the fingers. Between two of these parchment-like curtains a chain of minute bones extends, which serves to tighten or relax the membranes and communicate vibrations to them. In the innermost place of all a row of w" ite threads, called nerves, stretch like the strings of a piano from' the last point from which the tremblings reach, passing thence inward to the brarin.
OBITUARY. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 11 June 1914
OBITUARY. A very sad death took place on Sunday night, when Patrick Geary, the respected son of Mr John Geary (Youarang) died after a sharp and sudden illness, due to meningitis. The lad, who was 13 years of age, had not been in good health for some time previous. On Thursday last the medical advice of Dr Ratz (Tunga- mah) and Dr Horgin (Yarrawonga) was obtained, but the attack was too far pronounced for remedial measures. Acute sympathy is felt for the family in their untimely bereavement, the lad being respected by all for his brightness, and one who gave tokens of much promise in manhood. The &nbsp; remains were interred in the Tharan- begga Cemetery on Tuesday afternoon, an unusually large cortege of vehicles containing mourners paying a last tribute of respect to the memory of the departed and his esteemed parents. &nbsp; The Rev. Father Madden, P.P., con- ducted the obsequies at the graveside. Farr Bros, managing the mortuary arrangements. Another untimely deat...

HOME, WIFE, AND SATURDAY NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 18 June 1914
HOME, WIFE, AND SATURDAY NIGHT. Happy is the man who has a little home and a little angel in it of a Saturday night; a house, 110 matter how little, provided it will hold two or so; no matter how humbly furnish ed, provided there is hope in it. Let the winds blow-close the curtains. What if they are plain calico, without border, tassel, or any such thing? Lot the rain come down-heap up the fire. No matter if you haven't a candle to bless yourself with, for what a beautiful light glowing coal makes-just light to talk by, nol aloud, as in tilt' highways: not. rapid ly, as in the hurrying world; but softly, slowly, whisperingly, with Pauses' between lor the storm without ai.d the thought within to fill up with. Then wheel the sofa around by the fire; 110 matter if the sofa is a s; ttee, uncushioned at that, if so be it is just long enough for two and a half in it. How sweetly the music of sil ver bells from the time to come falls on the listening heart then! Mow mournfully swell the ch...

II.-Mr. Melbrooke Is Determined. Before the sister interviewed their father, who was sitting alone in the library, blissfully unconscious of what was in store for liini that evening, Tom joined them. Ho was laboring under the excitement of an idea. "Girls-I say, Edith! I know what we can do-I studied it all out my self; we'll have a guardian appointed for papa." Mrs. Sherman groaned. "Oh, Tom, don't be so foolish," she said, while Maud dared to laugh. ."You had better stay here, Tom, while Edith and I besiegs him," eaid she. Mr. Melbrooke listened patiently to liis (laughters and answered them kindly. "Fifty-three is not old, Edith. Why should I look forward to twenty, perhaps thirty years of loneliness in my home, at. a time of life when, more than any other, a mail wishes sympathy and companionship? To look forward to old age is sad; why should my children wish to condemn me to loneliness also?" "How can you be lonely with your children around you, papa?'' said .Maud. "I do not fo...
