The Rainbow Argus PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY SATURDAY, MAY 16, 1914. NEWS AND NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 16 May 1914

Published Every Saturday SATURDAY. may 1G, 1914. NEWS AND NOTES Excellent rains fell generally over the State ou Tuesday night, the heaviest falls being in the north east, where uetween one and two inches were re corded.

Longerenong College. REPORT FOR MONTH OF APRIL. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 16 May 1914

Longerenong College. .REPORT FOR MONTH OF APRIL. The agricultural and pastoral prospects at the Longerenong Agri cultural College have been very materially improved by the splen did rainfall during - the month. Rain was recorded on 12 days, the total fail being 232 points. The fodder crops, rape, peas and bar ley are weli above ground, and the pasture grasses are making excel lent headway. The wild oats and other weeds have made good growth on the ' fallow, which will ensure clean crops for the year. The scarifiers are being kept at work, and the soil is in very good order for Bowing, which will commence in a few days. The sheep and cattle had been fed with hay, but with the great improvement in the pasture tbis is now 110 longer necessary. The stock as a whole arc in very good condition.

Federal Issues. THE COMING FRAY. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 16 May 1914

Federal Issues. THE COMING FRAY. On Wednesday evening, the long drawn out debate on Mr. Fisher's censure motion came to an end, and the division was taken. The expected happened. Ministers Were acquitted on the casting vote of the Speaker, and so far as Mr. Cook and his colleagues can shape events, the House of Representa tives is entering on the last vital act in a curious Parliamentary drama. ITow long the Senatejmay choose to protect its part in that act, what attitude the Governor General will assume when the actual climax is readied, it is useless to sunnise. The outstanding fact is that there majr be a double dissolution in a very few weeks, and for such a happening Liberal forces must bo ready. It is prudent, then, to forecast as accurately as ■ may be, on what grounds the battle is likely to be fought. The task is not a difficult one. The question of Electoral Reform will play a comparatively small part ; a proposal toiutroduce Preferential and Proportionate voting might aro...

CHAPTER XVI. At the Rock House. I. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 16 May 1914

CHAPTER XVI. At the Rock House. I. it was just twelve o'clock on the following morning when the train put them clown at the station of Cintra, and they passed out to find a car riage "with three springs and a rope," as Mat Michel put it, waiting for them at the door. Here, also, was the interpreter whom Elkington obliging ly sent to them—the broth of a man whoso speech brought tears to their eyes. There had been an early thunder storm down in Lisbon; but the air was glorious here upon the height, and se redolent of sweet perfumes that they might have been set down suddenly in an Oriental garden. Per fume of orange and lemon trees, of roses which made a bower of every house, of great gardenias and flower ing shrubs—rocks which were hidden by blossoms, a vista of mountain and of sea beautiful beyond imagination, justified in an instant all that had been said of this incomparable re treat. And dominating all upon the proud crest wrs the old palace of the Mo-.-rish kings • now flying th...

III. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 16 May 1914

III. They watched their guest ashore, and then fell to the discussion of a plan. Hugh had already dispatclicd a telegram to Heresford, and ho paced the deck impatiently as though a re ply must reach him before he slept. George Hedges, a little frighten ?d by the night air, and quite without an eye for the beauties of Lisbon as the darkness revealed them, said that he did not believe a word of what he had heard, and that the morning would justify him. "If the man has any conscience at all, he will see you," said he. "Let us all go to bed and sleep upon it— quite assured that we shall laugh at our credulity. My dear Hugh, is it •either possible or probable that the man who proved himself so good a friend to Lady St. Denys in the hour of her necessity, will now try to con vince us that he is a scoundrel? I say that it is preposterous—absolutely pre posterous. There is no other word in th language." "Except the Portuguese for whisky and soda," said Mat, as a sudden freshet of hope came ...

Leila and Her Lover. Published by Arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co. Ltd., London and Melb. (All Rights Reserved.) II. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 16 May 1914

Leila and Her Lover. By MAX PEMBERTON. Published by Arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co. Ltd., London and Melb. (All RightB Reserved.) II. Here it may be said that very defin ite news o£ the missing maa had car ried these pilgrims to Lisbon. Not only did Patty's American friend as sure her that letters to Don Heres lord were being addressed to the post office in the city, but the detectives whom Hugh employed brought unim peachable evidence of his having been seen at the theatre at the very time when Leila had gone into Scotland. That Heresford was just llio man to be attracted by the Portuguese revo lution, and to wish to see it out, all agreed. He would have gone there in the spirit of the true adventurer; and nothing should be easier than to find him in a country where every stranger was suspect, and none really welcome to the revolutionaries. Mat Michel had taken a bold course in all this, and he never doubted that it would succeed. "We have only to ask the American Consul to hel...

Wear and Tear. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 16 May 1914

Wear and Tear. As the years roll on in thpir track less course, the stress and strain of moderu existence slowly but euroly have their effect, and, aB we approach middle life, most of us suffer from ail ments, such as rheumatism, gout, neu ralgia, lumbago, sciatica, anaemia, in digestion, biliousness, jaundice, sick headache, general debility, gravel, stone and bladder troubles. The in efficient action of the kidneys and liver is the prime factor when we suf fer from one or more of these com plaints, and in such cases it is neces sary to restore the kidneys and liver to health and activity ere a cure can be effected. Warner's Safe Cure pos sesses remarkable curative and restor ative properties in kidney and liver disorders, and sufferers from any of the above-mentioned ailments are con fidently recommended to at once seek the aid of Warner's Safe Cure in or der that the uric and biliary poisons, the retention of which causes the af fliction, may be removed from the sys tem, and heal...

A Great Invention. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 16 May 1914

A Great Invention. Mr. Edison, who recently tried to j take a holiday from work and is said to liavo become ill through boredom, I is apt to 'be rather cruBty with visi tors to his workrooms when they aslc too many questions. One day rather talkative journal ist pointed at a model. "What's that?" he asked. Mr. Edison, who was getting very weary of the man's endless questions, replied blandly: "That, my dear sir, is a cradle which rocks by sound. You put the baby in and the louder it howls, the faster the cradle rocks!"

LAUGHTER AND LONG LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 16 May 1914

LAUGHTER AND LONG LIFE. It may be (observes the "Lancet") that some enthusiastic and laborious German stlfistician has already ac cumulated figures bearing upon the Question of length of life and its rela tion to the enjoyment thereof; if so, we are unacquainted with his results, and yet have a very decided notion that people who enjoy life—cheerful •people—are also those to whom long est life is given, uommonplace though this sounds, there is no truth more commonly ignored in actual every-day existence. "Oh, yes, of course, worry shortens life, and the contented peo ple live to be old!" we are all ready to say; and yet how many people re cognise the duty of cheerfulness? Most persons will declare that if a man is not naturally cheerful he can not make himself so. Yet this is far from being the case, and there is many a man who is at present a weary 'burden to his relatives, miser able through the carking care of some bodily ailment perhaps, or some worldly misfortune, who, if he ha...

TAKEN FROM TEMPTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 16 May 1914

TAKEN FROM TEMPTATION. Day by day the girl slaved at her monotonous task, and her heart was filled with longing to#)e out, if .only for a few fleeting minutes, in tlie sun- , shine that kissed the street. I "Could you manage, ma'am," she ' ventureu, goaded into rebellion at last, "could you possibly manage to release me for a second or two?" j "Bless the girl! Whatever for?" ex claimed the mistress, as horrified as the workhouse master of whom Oliver Twist asked for more. "So that I might walk up the street and down again, ma'am. I wouldn't j dawdle, really, I wouldn't. It is the j people passing and re-passing the win- 1 clow that makes me envious. They seem so happy and free, while I " i Her voice trembled tearfully into si- j lence, but on the face of the female despot a saintly light appeared. j "Ah, well, my dear, perhaps I have ' been too hard on you," she said softly. "You are young, and temptation is difficult to resist then. You shall go, dear"—she paused, and a cry of joy ...

CURIOUS LEGACY TO A SWISS EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 16 May 1914

CURIOUS LEGACY TO A SWISS EDITOR. A wealthy and eccentric Swiss liv ing at Moscow, who died recently from an accident, left a novel will. Per haps the most curious clause is that a certain sum every year should be paid to the present editor of the jour nal "Wochenzeitung," of Wintertliur, in Switzerland, "To drink to my health." The Swiss was a native of Winter tliur, and the paper was his favorite one, hut the editor, who has accepted the gift to drink to a dead man's health, never saw or heard of the man. There is only one condition attach ed to the bequest: the "ceremonies" must take place on January 1 and August 1 every year until the editor's death. Pride is not ajl vanity or vainglory. The pride arising out of ignorance of oneself is quite distinct from a proper self-esteem which sets before one a high ideal of conduct as being due to the individual, to the family, to the school or to the race. Nothing succeeds like looking suc cessful.
