SPEECHES MADE TO ORDER. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 28 May 1914
SPEECHES MADE TO ORDER. A little, quiet, book-lined office in the heart of the West End of London is occupied by a gentleman who is prepared to turn out speeches for all occasions. During a recent interview the speechmaker-in-chief remarked that, while speeches have often been written by others than those who de lyver them, he thinks his is the first attempt to concentrate the supply and to establish the new profession of gentleman speechmaker. 'I am as ready with an after-dinner speech as any other," he said. "They can be bright or serious as requred. and I have already prepared a good many speecoes which have been de livered with success in different parts of the country. 'Impromptus' are a specialty. "The method is simple enough. I ask clients to supply me with.any lo cal allusions they require, and an idea, if they have one, of'the trend of the speech. The rest they can leave to. me. I have made-a practice of attending all the functions T could for years past, so I know exactly ...
"BRAINS SUPPLIED HERE." [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 28 May 1914
"BRAINS SUPPLIED HERE." Is it possible to provide the feeble minded with more 'brain. until they are normal? Wild though the possi bility may seem to the lay mind, it hn., neveirtheless, been seriously dis cussed at the Congress of Medicine in Paris. Furthermore, experiments in the science which is known as "or ganotherapy" have already been at tempted. This science really consists of treat ing diseased organs with medicines made from similar organs. It is point ed out by medical experts that the building up or doctoring of one organ with extracts from a similar one was practised 2000 years ago, although, of course, in a very crude fashion. It is on record that patients suffering from an affe .tion of any particular part of their system were given the same part of an animal to eat, with the idea of repairing the local waste*and dam ale. Thus consumptives were order ed to eat sheep lungs, while for dys peptics was prescribed a diet in which the stomach of calves ranked as the chief i...
SECRET NAVAL CODE BOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 28 May 1914
SECRET NAVAL CODE BOOK. Few things are so jealously, guarded as the secret code book of the Uni ted States Navy. It is a book of sig nals-not the ordinary ''wig-wag" sig nals used in the daily direction of the fleet by a commanding officer-but a code of signals to be used solely in time of war and in the presence of an enemy. These secret code books .are issued only to the executive officers of a ship, who are enjoined to protect them against theft by every possible means. These books are threatened not so much by the ordinary thief as by secret emissaries of other Govern ments who desire to obtain knowledge of what the battleships would do in time of action. Governments have no scruples against theft in such cases. The loss of one- of these secret code books by an officer, unless explained to the entire satisfactlon:of the Sec retary of the Navy, would mean court martial and probable expulsion from the service. To the honor-of the United States Service, no officer has ever yet been...
THE MISSION OF FLOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 28 May 1914
THE MISSION OF FLOWERS. Mr. Rider Haggard as a novelist has thrilled thousands, but never, perhaps, did his pen do--botter work than when it formed the following words, constituting, as they do, an enthusiastic and an effective "appre clation" of flowers: "I adore flowers," says some lady. contemplating a bouquet of orchids or prize chrysanthemums that others have raised at her expense. But she never watched the wonder of their growth; she never saw the shoot start to life; or the pseudo-bulb form; or day by day the flower spike ma ture. All that such a one cares for is the blaze of color when it comes, if even she really cares for this. With those who love the flowers, who, whatever their opportunities, are gar deners born, it is otherwise. The poor womal, for example, worn out with want, a dweller, perhaps, in the grimy slum of some vast city, who nurtures on the window-sill of her one room a cactus or a rose cut ting. When the cactus opens its gorgeous dazzling cup, white as the ...
"A PLACE FOR HIS HEART." [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 28 May 1914
,'A PLACE FOR HIS HEART." "I. married you in order to love you in God. and according tothe. need of my heart,, and in order to have in the midst of the strange world a place for my heart, which all the world' bleak winds- cannot chill; and where I may find the warmth of the- home fire, to which I eagerly betake myself when it is stormy and cold without." 1 Canyou imagine whose words are dhese? Perhaps you, might say they were written by some lovesick senti mentalist; but you would mistake. They are found in the "Love Letters of Prince Bismarck," which have just been published, and from their am ple pages you could cull a hundred similar passages. There are many different judgments of Prince Bis marck current in the world to-day, but there cannot be two opinions as to the purity, and depth of his affec tion for his wife. Probaibly she was the greatest single force that ever entered his life. She does .not seem to have been an intellectual or a brilliant woman, but she was .clear-mind...
WOMAN'S WORLD. HINTS TO MOTHERS. Some Useful Suggestions About the Care and Training of Children. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 28 May 1914
WOMAN'S WORLD. HINTS TO MOTHERS. Some Useful Suggestions- About the Care ahd' Training of Children. All children possess, imagination in a greater or less. degree, and in the management of the nursery this facul' ty may be ranked among the import ant ones. In trifling matters; where no real, principle is involved' I always consider the easiest way the best way; as, for instance, this morning, when my three-year-old girlie took it into her head not to be dressed as usual and curling her tiny pink toes be neath her \gown, declaring, mischiev osuly she wouldn't have any 'tock; in's on at all." For a minute. I was nonplussed. Baby had not ben well for several days and was just in the humor to rebel vigorously against enforced obedience. Papa was in the sound morning sleep that benefits a night worker, a, cry must be avoided if pos sible, so, as a thought struck me, I held the small stocking invitingly open and said. pleasantly, "'fhe naugh; ty little food said it wouldn't go into this s...

HOW NELSON LOST HIS EYE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 28 May 1914
HOW NELSON LOST HIS EYE. It is a curious fact that no one has been able to say precisely when and where Nelson lost his left eye. Some say that the disaster occurred during the siege of Bastia, in 1793; while others decide that it was the siege of Calvi. Accbrding to Signor 'D, Liberate Abarca, General in the ser viceof the Nicaraguan Republic, both these accounts are false. He says that it was in the year 1780; when the future "god of the seas," then a post captain in the Royal Navy, was cruis; ing along the coast of Central Ameri ca, that he received the wound which added him to the list of one-eyedl warriors. After inflicting every pos sible injury on the Spanish Colonies, Nelson resolved to take by assault the castle of San Carlos de Nicara gua. With a flotilla of launches and other flat-bottomed boats, he rowed up the river of San Juan, whichl flows into the Gulf of Mexico. The Spanish commander was laid up in bed with a severe illness, and the garrison, terrified at the imposi...

GREATER THA GUtDo: By L;. T. MEADE, Author of "The Soul of Margaret Rand," etc. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London & Melbourne All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XIII. While Mrs. Bellairs, in fear and trembling, had been hurrying towards the shabby little shop of Isaac Morde cai, Captain O'Doyle, punctually at 12 o'clock, presented himself at the hotel in the Strand. He inquired for Mr. Kruger and sent up his card, on which was inscribed his full name and the cavalry regiment to which he belong. ed. He was a remarkably good-look ing young man and, what was far more to the point, the generous and noble nature of his Irish heart shone through his steadfast, steady blue eyes. Captain O'Doyle, however, could not help wondering what a South African solicitor wanted with him. Bellairs had told htim nothing beyond urging him very earnestly to go, naming the appointed hour, and assuring him that he could not but be pleased with Karl Kruger. He waited somewhat rept le...

It was a part of the church work to welcome and fare well its members. There weeas joy at the welcoming of a new member, and there was regret at the fatewelling of a true and trousted member and officer. Mr G. F. Long had been associated with them in a very happy degree. As choir master he was well nigh indispensable; as treasurer of the church, teacher in the Bunday-school, and as a member and a deacon, he was attentive and trusted. They could ill spare such tried and capable olfficers; but they wished him God speed, and trusted that his sphere of us...
