ROPE-FILLED HORSESHOE FOR CITY STREETS. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 7 August 1914
ROPE-FILLED HORSESHOE FOR CITV STREETS. 4 A rope-fillcrl horseshoe, in common use in Germany, may solve one of the greatest problems in shoeing horses, that of providing a shoe that will grip slippery asphalt and paved street surfaces. The tread surface of the shoe is made with raised edges, and in the groove thus formed tar-soaked rope is securely fastened, so that it projects slight ly below the metal edges. The rope centre makes a cushion for the horse and quickly picks up sand and small stones, which become per manently imbedded in the surface and supply the friction necessary to prevent slipping.
YOUR MORNING BATH. WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT IT. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 7 August 1914
YOUR MORNING BATH. WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT IT. The chief value of bathing lies in its exhilaration. Don't make a penance of it. If you don't enjoy it, it's doing you harm. The good of the bath is in the reaction, the glow that follows it, not in ths plunge itself. Cold in general, and cold water in particular, is a tonic. First to the nervous system, through iVs branches in the skin, second to the heart and blood vessels as shown in (he glow, and third to the mus cles and digestive glands. It is the best appetiser known, worth all | the tonics and bitters in existence. But, like any other tonic, while a \ small dose stimulates, a large ona ' depresses. And the size of the dose I depends entirely on the bather. For a strong', vigorous person, in tho prime of life, nothing is better than the cold plunge. It exhilarates, it clears the brain of the cobwebs of the night ; it sends the blood hum ! ming through the veins as nothing J elre in the wide world can. But it takes a vigorous c...

"Yes." replied his beautiful daughter. "He said the next time he called he was going lo bring you some coug-h drops."
Ski Party Held at Bay by Wolves. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 7 August 1914
Ski Party Held at Bay by Wolves. t A party of ski-ers from Lemberg had narrow escapes from being eaten by wolves while making a tour in the Carpathian Mountains between Galicia and Hungary. They heard a howl during the nfternoon, and found that a small pack of animals was following them along a narrow forest track down a mountain. Twilight came on be fore they got clear of the woods, and the wolves then became bolder and threatened to rush the last man of the party. It became impossible to procecd to the place which it had been in tended to reach before nightfall, and the-ski-ers took up a position where their rear was protected by a rock, and passed the night behind their skis stuck upright in the snow. Nearly all had revolvers, and several had electric pocket-lainps, which really saved their lives, as they enabled them to fire at any wolf which ventured within range of the light. The animals prowled around them all night, but made off at daybreak, leaving several of the pack dead....

Port of Pompeii Unearthed [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 7 August 1914
Port of Pompeii Unearthed After lying hidden since those aw ful days in the year T'.i A.D., when Pompeii was destroyed and buried bv a. groat eruption of Vesuvius, the ancient harbour of the port lias now been discovered-about 1,500 yards inland from the sea shore of to-day. How it came to be found is an interesting: story. The late cele brated Roman sculptor Lorenzo Cozza, who was also noted as a classical scholar, devoted his latter years in this search, impressed as he was by the great mercantile importance which ancient writers unanimously attributed to the Pom peian port. On his deathbed Cozza bequeath ed his studies to his son, urgiug him to follow up the buried road leading seawards from the old ma rine gate of the city. Successive borings showed that the sand ex tended as far as the sea side of the present railway track. A little further inland the excava tors struck the pavement of an an cient marine street, revealing deep ruts of carriage wheels, such as are familiar to vi...

CHAPTER XV. TAKEN IN. I "What's this about Pat marrying I Fitzpatrick ?" said Lord Ossington, | throwing himself into a chair in the ' morning room at the Hall, two or .three mornings after the latter's en ' gagement to Pat. | That his lordship was put out it was easy to see, as he glanced from his sister to his niece. I "It's quite true that "Pat is engag ed to him," said Mrs. Hetherington, quietly. "My dear, I don't understand. I was told you refused to marry Lau rie because you loved young Carvill, then you engage yourself to the doc tor. I'd like to know what it means, Pat ?" said her uncle, in his usual . straightforward manner. I "It means that I've changed my mind. It's a woman's privilege," she said, trying to speak brightly. I "You're not one of the changeable sort, and I'd like to know if your j father has had anything to do with it. I've a sort of notion that girls j should marry in their own class, and I wasn't keen on you marrying the son of your father's manager ; but ...

MAN-EATERS. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 7 August 1914
MAN-EATERS. It might be thought tbat one of flu results of the progress of civi lisation would have been to protect man from the ravages of the animal world, particularly with rsspect to the preservation of human life. Xothing of the kind has happened. Such statistics as are available point to the fact that every year lions, - snakes, and crocodiles eon to S'to" do their deadly work. is not far distant when The time yan will have to deal definitely with the question of defending- his life against his cruel rivals in the animal world, and when that time comes he will have to exhibit as ercat a courage and as great a coolness as if he were fighting on the bloodiest battlefields. \ return, drawn up by the In dian Government recently, publishes figures which can do nothing but stupefy.

""Very well, father, I will do as you wish in that." Joshua Hetherington got up and walked quickly across the room, then he came back and stood facing this guileless girl, who, if she had no^ thought him a rery Moving i^her, had respected him. Perhaps she had thought him hard with his work people, but he knew that she regard ed him as one incapable of such wrong-doing as he was about to con fess.

THE WORLD'S WEALTHIEST MAN. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 7 August 1914
THE WORLD'S WEALTHIEST MAN. The Czar of Russia is the wealthi est man in all the world, far richer I even than John D. Rockefeller or any j of the Rothschilds. His civil list ; alone amounts to something li^e £fi,500,000 a ye-ar, and mors than a half of this is available for his own private use. In addition, the Czar owns land in European Russia equal in area to the whole of Ireland, and derives from it the colossal revenue of £5,000,000 per annum. And then he also owns land in Siberia which, even in its present undeveloped state brings him in well over £1,000,000 a year. His annual income, including the interest on his savings, has been es timated at £7,500,000. Seeing, therefore, that the Czar puts aside every year a large sum of money for each of his four daughters the prince who contracts a marriage in that quarter is likely to do «" tremely well for himself from a worldly point of view.
THE DAIRY THE BEST COWS FOR DAIRYING. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 7 August 1914
THE DAIRY J. THE BEST COWS FOR DAIRYING. Under tha above caption Mr. j Long, a popular English -writer on dairy subjects, in a recent issue 0f the "Dairy" (London) has several articles on the different breeds 0/ dairy cows. Of the Jersey breed he has written the following "The Jersey cow produces the rich est milk of any known breed. Her milk is seldom sold by dairymen owing to its higher cost, but it pro duces the finest butter that can be made, and not only finer cheese but a larger quantity per gallon than the milk of any other breed. "Farmers as a rule object to the Jersey owing to the fact that she is of iittle value when slaughtered- 0r barren, while her calves realise very small sums of money except in those cases where the breeder has a reputa tion. She is also regarded as too delicate for roughing, it in all parts of the country, but Jersejs which are bred for constitution and milk production, without regard to exhi bition points, I believe to be equal to maintaining health...
