Very Flowery. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 5 September 1913

Very Flowery. In a lecture the other day Sir Arthur QulIIer-Couch, the well-known author who is Professor of English Literature at Cambridge, said that eel-tain writers, like the Hindoo Babu, were always trying to make "our poor dear language more floriferous, more poetical." Babus are notorious, of course, for their passion for using flowery Eng lish, and they seize eagerly on any phrase, whether poetical or slangy, that may happen to catch their fancy. Sir Arthur gave as an example a story of a Babu who wanted to send a telegram announcing the death of his mother. A plain statement of the fact of death did not satisfy him, bo he wired: "The hand that rocked the cradle has kicked the bucket!" A sad looking man went into a chemist's shop. "Can you give me," he asked, "something that will drive from my mind the thought of sorrow and bitter recollection?" Then the chemist nodded, and put him iip a little dose of quinine and wormwood and rhubarb and Epsom salts and a dash of castor-oil...

CHAPTER XVIII. Setting a Trap. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 5 September 1913

CHAPTER XVIII. Setting a Trap. Mallien, by telling his daughter a half truth instead of the whole truth, had made her very nervous, and al though she asked for a more detained explanation ha had refused to give it to her. Dorlnda waB therefore 1 much relieved when Sophy conducted her to the Big House and hidden matters were made more plain. When in possession of facts she quickly recognised that the position of her father was highly dangerous, should Carrington Bpeak to the police. But I the girl agreed with Rupert that he would not do so, until all chance of . getting money for his silence had 1 disappeared. Even if Mallien were' willing, such money could not he ob-1 tained until the property passed from ' the Squire to his cousin, so if Rupert' refused to give up the Baine, Carring ton would be forced to wait. It was 1 not likely that he would kill the goose with the golden eggs by speak ing prematurely. And there was, as Rupert pointed out to Dorlnda, a grave doubt whe ther he wo...

The Lost Parchment By FERGUS HUME. .".-V (By Arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., Melbourne.) {All RightB Reserved.) CHAPTER XVII. Difficulties. Kit owed a great deal to Hendle, and was never backward in admitting , that the Squire was his benefactor. When Mrs. Beatson first took service at the Big House, the boy was at school, but she explained to her em ployer that she could no longer pay tees for his education. Rupert, ap proving of the bright, intelligent lad; thereupon arranged Cor the rounding off of his scholastic career, and after wards paid for his training as an engineer. It was due to the Squire that Kit occupied the excellent posi tion he did in the exploitation and sale of motors. Also it must be Stated that young Beatson took every advantage of his opportunities, earn ing the esteem and approval of all with whom he came into contact. With the Squire's aid and his own brains - there was every chance that iKt would succeed in life more tb:ir. most. Naturally the boy was ...

It is urged, that the department must tnlce its full share ot responsibility.
