Smile in Court. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 16 October 1915

Smile in Court. At a recent trial one of the wit nesses was a green countryman, un used to tlie ways of the law, but quick, as it proved, to understand its prin ciples. After a severe cross-examina tion, the counsel for the prosecution paused, and then, putting on a look of severity, exclaimed: "Mr. Kilkins, has not an effort been made to induce you to tell a different story?" "A different story from what I told, sir?" "That is what I mean?" "Yes, sir; several persons have tried to get me to tell a difierent story from what I have told, but they couldn't." "Now, sir, upon your oath, I wish to know who those persons are." "Well, I guess you've tried 'bout as hard as any of them."

Ye'll be an architect yet, as shure's yer feythur's a builder."

AMUSING INCIDENTS. Scented Trouble. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 16 October 1915

AMUSING INCIDENTS. Scented Trouble. The weather has been by no means unkind to gardeners during the past few days. The other morning, whilst Geordie was having a turn at his gar den, a passer-by stopped to survey operations. A casual observation by ! the onlooker gave Geordie the I "straight back" he needed. He pro ceeded to open his heart about the fine morning. "By gosh, man, but that was a grand shoor o' rain we had just noo; an' wi' | this heet, tee, wej, it's enyuf te bring owt oot o' the ground!" said Geordie.

MOTORING BAD FOR DOGS. Why Spaniels Suffer From Heart Disease. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 16 October 1915

MOTORING BAD FOR DOGS. Why Spaniels Suffer From Heart Disease. The attention of veterinary sur geons and dog-breeders has recently been directed to riding in motors as the cause of hitherto unexplained cases of heart diseases in valuable dogs. It has been noted that certain breeds of dogs are,more susceptible to the ill-effects than others. Span iels are perhaps, of all breeds, the most inclined to heart disease and, therefore, the most liable to suffer ill effects from riding in motor-cars. The swiftly-moving car, with its sadden starts and stops, its sharp turns, and the flying panorama of people and things passing in rapid succession, causes in dogs an un natural excitement. . They sniff the air and watch with intense interest the people dodging out of the way ahead. This excitement is partly caused by the dog's instinct to save human life, for at every turn he per ceives a chance for a rescue; but pri marily this inclination is doubtless a direct result of the action on the hear...

Gordon then sang "The Sea is England's j Glory," the company •= joining in the i chorus. George Prentice, in proposing " Old Identities," said if 50 years' residence didn't constitute an old identity, then he was not one. In abolishing the Borough, the Legislature had undone all the old identities had accomplished, buij he hoped the new riding "would go on the old lines. He hoped to see all the old identities pres ent again for many reunions to come. Mr Cutler played a violin solo. ^ , pleaded "to see' so many old identities, young identities, and all other kinds ot identities present.. When he arrived in 1854 he thought it a miserable piece ox country, but he liked it better afterwards.

He crossed Holborn, walking leis urely, and smoking a cigar, and con tinued down St. Andrew street and along towards Shoe-lane, I strolling j after him at some distance behind. ► At that hour the thoroughfare was i practically deserted, therefore con | cealment was extremely difficult. Yet I by his leisurely walk I felt convinced Ithat in passing he had, fortunately, not recognised me. j Behind me came Rayner, to see, as J he swiftly put it, "that no harm ' came to me." I The old man, in the full enjoyment j of his cigar and apparently quite happy that if his offices were watch ed his two confederates would have taken off the watchers, strolled along St. Bride street as far as the corner of Ludgate Hill, when he hailed a taxi and drove westward. His exam ple I quickly followed, leaving Ray ner standing on the kerb, unable to follow, as no third cab was in sight. { Up Fleet-street we drove quickly and along the Strand as far as Char ing Cro...

THE BANQUET. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 16 October 1915

THE BANQUET. A splendid dinner was partaken of by nearly a hundred Old Boy8 in the Town Hall. The President, Charlie Walker, presided. The toast of the King was duly honored. The President said he was more than gratified to see the hall so well filled. He didn't believe that war, famine, or pes tilence could keep the Old Boys away. He hoped they would not look on the sad side of things, but enjoy themselves to the full. He would like to hear them sing a couple of verses of " Home, Sweet Home," which was done. Bill Gordon then proposed " The Bor ough Riding." There were few older boys in the room than he—he was born in 1859. They had a roads board in those days, but the place developed into a Bor ough. Considering the heavy traffic in those days, it must have been a hard mat ter to finance the Council. The roads were now better than any in Victoria—they were ideal roads for motor men like Brother Walker : in fact, they were better in wet weather than in dry. He saw be fore him the fa...

The Place of Dragons CHAPTER XXIII. Follows the Evasive Jules. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 16 October 1915

By WILLIAM LE QUEUX. By Arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., London & Melbourne. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER XXIII. Follows the Evasive Jules. The man of a hundred aliases, and as many crimes, was walking swiftly in our direction, and I only just had time to nip back and cross to the street refuge in the centre of Hol born Circus. Rayner recognised him in an _ in stant, and I had just time to exclaim: "There's Jeanjean! Take him up, but be careful. Got your revolver?" "Trust me, sir," Rayner laughed. "I don't forget Cromer/; "Be careful," I whispered, and next instant we had separated. I saw Jeanjean gain the end of the drab thoroughfare and glance around apprehensively. He was dressed smartly in a well-cut suit of blue serge, and wore a grey hat of soft felt, and a pair of yellow wash-leather gloves, like those poor Craig had ha bitually affected. His quick, shifty eyes searched everywhere for a few seconds, then he turned into tbe bustle of the traffic in Hol...

POEMS WRITTEN IN SLEEP. How Some Authors Found Inspiration. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 16 October 1915

POEMS WRITTEN IN SLEEP. How Sone Authors Found Inspiration. The world owes many a master piece to inspiration found in sieep. One of the most extraordinary exam ples of dream literature is Coleridge's "Kubla Khan." Though only a frag ment of this poem is extant, we are assured by the poet that he actually composed, during sleep, more than 200 lines. At the time he was in ill health, and one day fell into a deep sleep in his chair. The sleep last ed for three hours, and on awaken ing Coleridge had a vivid recollection that he had composed a poem of no mean merit. Immediately ne began to put it to paper, but when he had written the few lines that we know he was called away from his desk, and on returning an hour later he found, to his mortification, that the remainder of the poem had escaped his memory and passed into oblivion. "The Ancient Mariner" also owes its inception to a dream. Cruikshank, Dickens' illustrator, dreamed the story which approximates to the poem, and related it to...

HOW AEROPLANES SIGNAL. Soot Clouds and Mirror Flashes. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 16 October 1915

HOW AEROPLANES SIGNAL. | Soot Clouds and Mirror Flashes To a commander the value of a military aeroplane is its power to lo cate hostile artillery and direct gun tire, rather than its bomb-dropping possibilities. Thus it is very neces sary that a pilot several thousand feet in the air should be able to com municate with the headquarters statt on earth so that he may convey the necessary information for the guid ance of gunners hurling shells at cargets miles ahead which they can not see. The French are using a very ingenious method of signalling from an aeroplane by means of soot clouds. An apparatus filled with lampblack rests near the hand of the aviator, and when he presses a lever some oi this soot passes down a pipe ana is discharged in a. black cloud. The pipe is so delicately arranged that the clouds may be small or large. The operator can spoil out the Morse tele graphic code in little clouds, and they can be read from earth when the avi ator is four thousand feet high. Anot...
