BOOKS. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 1 July 1914
BOOKS. O silent volumes on my shelves, That hold the deathless and divine, Ye have but to reveal yourselves. And I am yours, as ye are mine! Mere ink and paper though ye be, As shells wherein no life appears If hand but touch and eye but see, Then mind meets mind across the years. Dante and Shakespeare speak once more, Beethoven sings his soulful strain; And in the unsealed tombs of yore Wake all the passion, all the pain. They are ~hot dead, these silent ones, Nor dumb, but eloquent with light, And sparkle like the infinite suns Beyond our reach, though in our sight. Like melodies that once have thrilled, And in tife mer ry never die, Those calm, majestic voices stilled Come echoing from eternity. -John ?all In gham.

Mr Heslop, a member of the veterinary staff of the Depart ment of Agriculture, delivered a lecture in the Rechabite hall on Monday evening, under the au spices of the Mornington Far mers' Society. Mr W Wilson occup:ed the chair, the attendance being very small. The subject of the lecture was "The structure and care of the horse's hoof." M - Heslop. who apologised for the non-attend ance of a lanternist to illustrate the lecture, dealt at some length with the structure of th2 hoof and then went on to refer to the various foot diseases and the bestmeans of treatment. Spak ing on the subject of laminitis, commonly known as founder, he said it was brought about by various causes and was often wrongly treated. If the horse alas shod, the shoes should be taken off, and if in a stable the animal should be well bedded and not allowed to stand on a hard floor. The affected part should be bathed with cold wrater. The use of warm water only made matters worse. As a drench the follo...
A PROTEST. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 1 July 1914
A PROTEST. The Spring Vale club lodged a protest against the Nar Nar Goon club. on the grounds that they played short time at their match on the 20th of June and also that they played men who were playing with the Bunyip Association.

WE DIDN'T KNOW. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 1 July 1914
WE DIDN'T KNOW. "Johnny's gone to be a nangel," a little girl, with eyes wide with awe and wonder, confided to a visitor at the house of mourning. "Johnny's my brother, and t didn't know he was goin' to be sick and go away last night. On'y yesterday he was here with his coat all tore where he'd been playin', and his hands scratched. He wanted a bite of my apple. and I wouldn't give him any. I wish now I had, but I didn't know he was goin' to be a nangel." Poor little sister! That is what we all say afterwards, "We didn't know." and *h! how our hearts ache over the scratched bands for which we for got to show any sympathy, and the apples we selfishly refused to share! We were busy, tired, impatient, and our own hands were smarting. We thought our burdens heavy; we want ed to be helped ourselves. Instead of helpIng others, and the little plea at our side met no response. We didn't know it was the last plea, but now we can never forget the wistful eyes which followed us that day. Ah, i...
HORSES AND MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 1 July 1914
HORSES AND MEN. A Boston man tells of an innocent farmer who once sought otst a phreno logist and asked him to read his humps. Irs revealing to the farmer his tem perament as shown by the aforesaid humps, the professor said: "Your tastes are the simple, homely ones of the farmer. You are a far mer, are you not? Ah! I thought so. And I am riglst as to your tastes, am I not? You are sadly deficient in Indgment, and have little knowledge of human nature. Your innocent and trustful disposition renders you an easy dupe to designing men, and your own perfect honesty prevents you from either suspecting or defrauding anyone." The followIng week, it appears, the phrenologIst bought a horse from the innocent farmer. Although the nag wag old and In bad condition, it had been made to appear young and sicit tish. Moreover, though the farmer had paid but £5 for the animal, he contrived without dilliculty to unload him nit the professor for £15. "Lt's wonderful," said the farmer to a friend, as he...
LITERARY DOCTORS. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 1 July 1914
LITERARY DOCTORS. The fact that the celebrated Amner Ican physician, Dr. Sllas Weir Mitch ell, who died recently at Philadelphlia, had a distinct reputation in the liter ary world as a poet and novel!st, calls to mind several other instances of re lationship between pill and quill. Dr. Mitchell's best novel w:as "Hugh Wynne, Free Quaker." which deals with the period of the revolution, and has created almost as much interest as some of thle stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. who got his ideas for "Sherlock Holmes" while walking the Edinburgh infirmary under the eye of that remarkable surgeon. Dr. Joseph Bell. Another Scottish doctor, Dr. John Brown, was the immortal author of "Rab and His Friends."

The "Commercial" in an Indian Bazaar. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 1 July 1914
The "Commercial" in an Indian Bazaar. Popular conception of India is of .necssity based onl what illustrated papers dish up for us, andti as they seem to prefer itn the main some of the imposing buildings and streets in the European quarters of itll bay andi Calcutta, varied occasi)n ally with views of the famous show places, such as the TaJ at Agra, or, some notable Mosque or Tentm Ile, with which the country abounds, we naturally think of India on the same broad lines as the pictures 'visualise for us.. D But this' is inot the real 'India ; to get to its heart you must leave the- broad streets of European coim merce, anti dive into its baznnar;, where the teeming millions of na tives :still live to-day exactly a1 they did hundreds of years ago, and us they will, in all likelihood, lie fothid hundreds of years hence, for the placid fatalisim of Eastern tem peranment abhors change and innovIa tion,, and calmly defies all the laws of hygiene and sanitation by herd ing together in nar...

An Oft-Told Tale. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 8 July 1914
An Oft-Told Tale. ·------ The tale of the loss of the Birken head has often been related, but can never be too often told. The troop transport left Simon's Bay on February 26, 1852, bound for Port Elizabeth. Seven hours after leaving Capetown she struck a rock; and. twenty-five minutes later all that was visible was her masts, crowded with despairing survivors. Among the troops on board (drafts sent out to the Kafir War, then raging), who gave a still unfor gotten example of calm discipline and unflinching courage under such terrible circumstances, were some of the Twelfth Lancers under Captain Bond-Sheldon, a veteran Who still survives. Ordered to get the horses over board, the captain succeeded in do ing so, his own charger among the rest. Some swam landwards, some out to sea; but most doubt less became the prey of the sharks, which, hovering around the doomed vessel, added a new terror to the situation. Then an effort was made, to get out the boats, filled with women and children...
