CHAPTER XIII. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 18 May 1917
CHAPTER XIII. Cicely was a prey to the most hor rible foreboding^ as they drove home from the. Barripgtons' difiner party. I One glance at Eric's face was enough j to show: her that something was seri-. ously amiss, while all .the evening she j had been unable to keep her thoughts,' from dwelling upon the recognition which had taken place between her brother and Alma Beresford, and j .which seemed to Cicely so extraordin- . ary. Life had become a very complex and a v.ery terrible thing to Lady Nor caster since Alma's advent at the Towers. Until then, she had been able at times. persuade herself that | there was no danger of that one falsa , .step of hers being brought to light; i now it seemed to her that discovery was inevitable, that it was coming upon, her a? surely, as inexorably, as | the end of a Greek tragedy. I Sometime she felt that it was some thing. outside her own experience al together, some play that she was watching in the character of an ab sorbed spectator. Every no...

AUSTRALIA PLAYS THE GAME No. XIX. Great Britain's Enemy. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 18 May 1917
AUSTRALIA--. PJLAYiS THE GAME No. XIX. Great Britain's 'Enemy. In the terriflc spectacle o£ almost universal war which confronts the world women's tears are falling end lessly, and the blood of men !B flow ing from day to day, month to month and year to year. Not before has human heroism reached such great heights, or the spirit of self-sacrifice shone so brightly. It is one of the mysteries of life that the greatest ends can only be obtained by blood and sacrifice. It has always been so, hut never so much as now. When years hence, this Titanic struggle is reviowed in calm mood, the world will be staggered at the capacity for sacri fico contained in the human race. Never again will it be possible, as in the past, to speculate on human de cadence. It has been proved beyond , a'l question that when humanity is called upon to protect itself, to choose between good and evil, not onlv is the choice made without hesitation ; uut the most appalling odds are faced without the least tremor o...
Used to It. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 18 May 1917
Used to It. i The new curate was going ; the rounds.of the slum district to which lie had lately been appointed, and was much shocked at the conduct of a sbabbily-dre.ssed old man, who knock ed at Uie door of every house in the street and then furiously abused . the owners who answered him. "What a strange old man!" he re marked to one of the householders. "Why is he allowed to go about; ,and say those terrible things to these, people?" "Oh, tlioy don't mind him! He's all right. They're used to him. He's a harmless old lunatic,? and he's . been going about like this for the last , ten years." "Dear me! Surely he ought to- be put under restraint! What do, you think is the cause of his behavior?" "Optimism-that's what he's suffer-, ing from. You'see, lie's the. land lord of these houses, and he's i been coming round like this every Mpnday for ten years, ta get.the.rent-audi he still fancies that he'll get it!"
ADVICE TO THE MARRIED. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 18 May 1917
ADVICE TO THE MARRIED. The last word is the most danger ous of infernal machines. Husband and wife should no more flght to. get it than they would struggle for: the possession of a lighted bombshell. Married people should study each other's weak parts of the ice, in or der to keep, off them. Ladies who marry for love should remember that the union of angels with .women has been forbidden since the Hood. The wife is the sun oi tne. social system. Unless she attracts, there is nothing to keep heavy bodies, like husbands, from flying into space. The wife, who should properly dis charge her-, duties, must nevec have a soul above trifles. Don't trust too much to good tem per when-, you get into an argument. Sugar-is the substance , most univers ally diffused through all, natural pro ducts. Let married- people, therefore, take a hint from this provision of Nature. Though, sometimes small evils,, like invisible insects, inflict pain, and a ( single, hair may stop a vast machine, : yet the,...

Sporting. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 18 May 1917
Sporting. THE local schoolboys defeated the boys from Wandiligong on Saturday last at football, the scores being 7-12 to 3 3. Derby prospects have been engaging some attention, and quite a number of three-year olds are at this early- stage regarded as possessing good chances in the rich Blue Riband contests at Flem I ington and Raridwick. Mr Ernest j Clarke's_ crack colt, Thrice, is the strong Derby tip, but many good judges contend that, like others of The Welkin's get, he will not stay. J. Scobie has a rare second Derby string in Mr S. P. Mackay's recent 1700 gn. purchase, Macadam, who looks a most likely colt. Mr J Baron's representative, iJrince Viridis, is favorably spoken of, and his form at the Sydney Cup meeting spoke volumes in the colt's favor. The same owner's Princess Winifred is an improving filly, who will stay. Mr \Ym Brown's colt, Modesto, has good Derby credentials Newton Stewart, now owned by Mr E. A.

Shamrock Mine, Harrietville. FLOTATION ANNOUNCED. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 18 May 1917
Shamrock Mine, Harriet- ville. FLOTATION ANNOUNCED. IT is with a great deal of satisfaction that we announce the flotation of the above mine, particulars of which were published in the " Argus" of Friday last. The new company will have a working capital of £10,000, and will consist of 40,000 shares of 5/ each. The Shamrock has long been regarded as one of the loading ventures of the district, and for many years has been a great gold producer. As developmental work proceeded, and it became necessary to go under foot for the stone, which of course would necessitate machinery, the owners at the time (Messrs Wallace and party) did not favor the scheme, and the property passed into the hands of a syndi- &nbsp; cate, who were successful in obtaining several satisfactory crushings, but these were only from isolated blocks. The syndicate likewise saw the difficulty that confronted them, and when an oppor- tunity arose they willingly passed the venture on to Mr G. F. Proctor, manager...
