II. How llio Fates must laugli at the plans of we poor ignorant mortals! l-'or a week or two Silas N. Oakley ami Ills soil enjoyed a clOBcr intimacy than tlioy had ever before experienced. The frank talk about May Stanley had broken down most of the reserve which had served to keep father and son apart. The old man was happy ill the thought that his lifelong desire seemed certain to be realised, and Harry had been influenced more than he cared to admit to himself by the simple directness of tlio letter his father had allowed lijm to read, lie was actually longing for the girl's ar rival. Then the malignant Fate in terfered. Harry had been most carefully train ed ill the manufacture of woollens, and had for some time been in full control of his father's extensive mills, while Silas had more and more given his attention to buying and selling in Bradford. One Monday morning there was an uuusual application for employment at the Woollerton JIUls. A very attrac tive, rosy-cheeked girl of...

SUNSHINE AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 31 July 1914

SUNSHINE AT HOME. Something I own that wealth cannot buy. And not offered for sale on the mart; Something for which the great often sigh With an unhidden void In the heart; Something possessed by one littlo spot In a corner I know on earth's loam, Waiting for mo In a neat, cosy cot, 'Tis a sweet, loving smile In ray home. When all the world Is dreary and cold. And the clouds darkly hang o'er the wny; Friendship and honor purchased with gold, And a world seems to win to be tray; Still one fond thought thro' shadows will shine, As I back to that humble cot roam, Feeling as rich as a wealth-laden mine, With a Bweet, loving smile in my home'. When that bright scene shall vanish and fade Into visions of heaven beyond And earth grow dim In death's misty shade. With the forms so loving and fond Yet will remain for ever In mind, "hough afar in tho heaven's broad dome, T" e sweet,-liappy face, loving and kind," With tho smile that awaits me at home. Mr. Sweet: Do you find It economi cal to d...

One Thing Needful. He was ill, or at least said that he was, and the other day he entered the office ot a well-known physician and sank into a leather-covered arm chair in the ante-room waiting his turn on the list. At last it came, and the doctor ex amined his tongue critically, £elt his imlse, inquired as to the symptoms ol his illness, and then looked wise. Taking a pad from the table, he wrote a prescription, calling for bread pills, and distilled water, or some thing of that sort. Then, turning in his chair, the plysieian said: "1 cannot see that anything seri ous Is the matter with you. "What you need is plenty of air " The patient smiled a broad, bland smile, hut. said nothing. "Take this prescription regularly every night; but above all things get plenty of air. Good, wholesome, outdoor atmosphere, that is what you need more than anything else." "Ha, ha, ha! I need air, do I?" shouted the man. "Well, that is I funny."

The running for fourth place waB very close, Warragul just beating: Yarra' go_n by the narrow margin of one point. This was hard luck for tho wearers of the black and white, as their team was showing improved form as the season advanced, and a chance in the semi-finals may have given them a reasonable prospect for the premiership. A special train from Trafalgar conveyed the team, and a good followingof supporters to the ground. Rain threatened duiing the afternoon, but fortunately sufficient did not tail to damp the ardour of either the teamB or barrackers, and the ground was in good condition. Hurley, of Melbourne, umpired, and kept tho game-which, for the most part, was fast and open-well in hand.
