Coachman's Work. T A dispute had long existed in a gentleman's family between the cook and the coachman, about bringing the rream from the farm for break fast. Their master one morning called them both before hini that he might hear what they hud to say. The cook pleaded that the coach man wns lounging about the kitchen the best part of the morning, yet he was s»> ill-natured that he would not fetch the cream for her, though he saw she had not a moment to spare. The coachman said it was not his business. "Very well," said the master; "but what do you call your busi ness ?" "To take carc of the horses and clean and drive the carriage," re plied the coachman. "You say right," answered the master, "and 1 do not expect you to do more than that for which I pay \ou; hut this T insist upon— that every morning before breakfast you got the carriage ready and drive the cool; to the farmer's fur cream; nnd I hope that you will allow that to be part of your business."

First Come, First Served. Lord Charley Bereaford oneo landed hurriedly at San Francisco, or sonio other port in the States, and was at once asked to dinner, within an hour or two, by a deputation of prominent men, who would take no denial.

A LUCKLESS CATERPILLAR. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 14 May 1914

A LUCKLESS CATERPILLAR. Nature is a curious force. There is a caterpillar in Australia. It looks for food under leaves and twigs in the usual way. As it searches, a para site, specially equipped by nature for the purpose, drops on its neck and fastens itself there. In a .week or two this little para site seed begins to germinate, draw ing its nourishment from the very life-blood of the insect. The latter, feeling sick, buries itself about two inches in the ground. Eventually a pale green stalk, about twelve inches high, at the sum mit of which is a most extraordin ary rtower, somewhat resembling the top of a bulrush when in seed, ap pears. The poor caterpillar's refuge in the ground is of no avail, for its whole interior has to make room for a vegetable mass of roots. Sucked as dry as a bone, it is actually con verted into a stick of wood.

WORLD-WIDE NOTES. NEWS FROM EVERYWHERE. "SHORTS" FOR INDIAN ARMY. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 14 May 1914

WORLD-WIDE NOTES. ♦ NEWS FROM EVERYWHERE. "SHORTS" FOR INDIAN ARMY. j Tho "Sphere" puts before its read- i ens a series of drawings and photo- | graphic pictures showing the extent j to which "shorts" are being employ- | ed in the Indian Army. v I Shorts originally came into use on f the African coast and in India, where regiments were judged oy their mili tary efficiency rather than their blind adherence to dress regulations. They were found to be most RUitablo for work in the hills, and also for march ing through sand, duet, wet jungle, or marshy ground, tho knees beinf>, of course, quite free. They have thn advantage that they dry quickly after being wetted by rain or wading through water or wet ciops, whereas breeches of the tight variety shrink and rub the'knees, and those of the bloomer variety soak up so much water that they becomo a dead weight. One might think that in moving through thorns, or kneeling on the rocky ground, the bare knees would get cut. Experience, howeve...

"I—don't know," came the listless reply. "Why hasn't he sent an excuse this morning ?" " No ; I thought he would. lie hasn't." "He'll bo up before the morning has passed," said Vida, calmly, giv ing Iiebe a smile. "It will be^uch it pretty denouement to see him como clattering up unexpectedly to make his explanation."

CHAPTER XXIII. MRS. FRANKLAND'S BALL. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 14 May 1914

CHAPTER XXIII. MRS. FRANKLAND'S BALL. Mrs. Frankland's ball, besides be ing the first of the season, was de stined to bo remembered ns the most brilliant. No succeeding ball ap proached it. There was a reason for this. Mrs. Frankland was com paratively new in New York—she had nothing hut her plurality of millions to recommend her, and her footing in the golden house of so ciety whs not as assured as her ambition demanded* it should be. She was past the threshold, but she ^wanted the sweep of the place and the privilege to enter, at last, the inner sanctorum presided over by the powerful and the favoured few. For this reasrn Mrs. Frankland had returned after a year's . ab sence abroad, a prince and a duke in hcr„wake who did her the honour j of permitting themselves to be lion* I izod.- A fortune .was spent on ] flowers ; her house, like an English j . caeiio in a city street, outrivalled j nil others ; she had arranged that, ! between tho dances, a musicalo J should bo be held in th...

THE HEART OF AUSTRALIA. I Thj! dead heart of Australia al ways exerts an insistent influence over the minds and imaginations of city dwellers ; and the comparative ly few expeditions which have tra versed it, and to which we owe the small knowledge wn already possess of the vast interior of the Common wealth, must always appeal to our sympathetic interest. Captain S. A. White has lately covered a large amount of the unfre quented land about the Finke River, and his remarks concerning tbe flora and fauna in that, unknown part are interesting in the extreme. "Last night was clear and cold ; the stars, those sentinels of the sky, appearing intensely bright, and to the explorer they must ever be ob jects of admiration and love, as to them he is indebted for his guidance through the untrodden wilderness he is traversing. > "Several hundreds of pelicans in n large flock made their appearance upon" the waterhole neai the camp this morning, but no sooner did they discover us than they ma...
