City Underlaid with Gold. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 25 September 1914

City Underlaid with Gold. The ground on which Philadel phia is built is said to be of the richest goldficlds in the world. The only difficulty there is that the field cannot be worked. Nearly tho whole city is underlaid with clay to the depth of about 10ft.-an area say, of ten miles squaro. * A cubic foot of clay, weighing about 1201b., taken , from a depth of 1.4ft., when the cellar of tho Twelfth-street market-house was ex cavated, was practically demon strated to contain seven-tenths of a grain * of gold, or lib. ,in 1,224,000. The experiment was repeated with about the same results with clay taken from a brickyard in the su burbs. Supposing the whble mass. of clny to bo 4.180,000,0001b. (and it is really much greater), the amount of gravel is much _ richer in gold' than the clay, but there is not so much of it. Undoubtedly £200,000,000 worth of gold lies within .3 5ft. of the' sur-. face, and still it cannot be used. Feeling not in the best of humour but very hungry, he went int...

Mighty Intellects. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 25 September 1914

Mighty Intellocts. I havo often thought that tho sum ming-up of a certain coroner was about as neat as, woll, could be, at an inquest whoro tho evidonco variod and contradicted itself in an astounding manner. The jury and coroner wero equally lost as to which lot of witnesses to believe. However, the head of aftairs in thait - village inquiry-room put the mut ter tersely, and very neatly. " Gentlemen," snid he, "if you beliove tho evidence given by tho first three witnesses, you will find tho deceased died by his own hand; if you fcelicvc the tustinuny of the last three, you will find it a case of his gun going ofT accidentally. For myself, I can't any which I believe, ns both mny bo wrong !" And the intelligent jury in duo course brought in a verdict of ''Found shot by somebody or other!" Occasionally one member, at least, of the average coroner's eleven, twelve, or thirteen underling« at tho inquest, gets in a good hit at the expense' of others.

NOT TOO OLD AT SIXTY. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 25 September 1914

NOT TOO OI.D AT SIXTY. In these *daj*s, when we arc fre quently hearing "too ol'l at forty,' it is refreshing: to kno;.v ihat there are many'peoplo to whom this say ing .does not apply in every walk of life, and especially is it so' in the literary profession. Victor Hugo, one of the greatest writers that'- France has ever produce*!, wrote "Los Miserables," the finest work of his life, in exile in 18R2, when ho was sixty years old. This work,, which raised its author at oncc to a supreme place in I-'rench literature, was published simultan eously in Paris, Brussels, London, New York, Madrid, Berlin, St. Petersburg, and Turin. The story is a particularly fasci nating ono, and possesses historical -value, because of the accurate de scriptions it gives of-paris at that period.- It is a book of lofty mo rality, and in its' hero it gives a splendid example of heroic self-sac rifice. 7t is ' a book, moreover, ivhich strikes one forcibly as hav-' ing been written by ono' who be lieved in h...
