Quite Lively Enough. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 16 April 1914

Quite Lively Enough. Seated on 'an empty box in front of a log cabin in the Par West was a man cleaning a 'double-bnrrelled gun. A passing tourist stopped to chat, end asked him how far it was to the nearest neighbor's. "A trifle over two miles," he re plied. "As far as that? You must find it rather lonely here." "No, I can't say as I do. You see I mortgaged this claim for four hun dred dollars. And I-couldn't pay, so they foreclosed." The Btranger murmured an exclam ation of surprise. ' "That was two years ago, and the sheriff has been trying to get posses sion ever since. He comes twice a week, and we have a shot at each other; and at least twice a week some idiot comes along and wants to know if I ain't lonely; and- then there are thieving tramps and rattlesnakes; so thia llfe is about as exciting as I like. There comes the sheriff now. You had better lie down behind that log, and keep clear of his gun." Messrs. Stone and Co., meat sales men, Metropolitan Meat Market, Mel bourne,...

A HORSELESS TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 16 April 1914

A HORSELESS TOWN. At the doors of Indianapolis there is to be the first truly horseless city in America, and—save, perhaps, for those places where oxen,, goats, cam els, or what not else furnish native and locomotive power—the first horse less city of the world. The actual construction work is well under way, and in two or three years there will be a complete town. The horse that tries to enter, says the "Motor," will be turned back as sternly as motorists used to be from the strip on the Ocean Parkway in Brooklyn. The man with the motor car may enter free as air. It is planned to make this city, which is named Speedway, an indus trial city devoted to the interests of the motor-car trade.

WHISTLES AT HIS WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 16 April 1914

WHISTLES AT HIS WORK. "My boy," said Uncle Hiram, "don't, for pity's sake, look glum, An' don't set tight your lips as if they speechless were, an' dumb. When some hard task's before you, i.or, though laboring like a Turk, The happiest fellow's he who sings or whistles at his work. A lesson from the buzz-saw learn, that rings with honest glee, While into lumber it converts the trunk of stoutest tree,. That hums a low-toned melody- when easiest's its lot, An' always sings ,the loudest when it strlkeB the hardeBt knot. "To make of every task a joy you'll find's an art worth while; The hardest problems of the world are solved by those who smile. Abe Lincoln, when affairs of state perplexed him, deigned to chaff, Well knowing fogs would lift before the sunshine of a laugh. He joked when those about him stood in woe and gloom profound, Yet 'twas his laughter-wrinkled brow that fame undying crowned. He smiled, or likely chuckled, through each problem's softest spot, But shook with hearty ...

Desdy was very tired by this time, and she put him to bed at once. The suite of rooms which Hugh had en gaged was the best in. the hotel, and Its magnificence set the boy wonder ing. He prattled incessantly of what the engine had said to him, and what the ships had been doing—asked about the great cluster of electric lights in the sitting-room, ana was delighted at the little lamp by his bedside. When Leila had given him a drink of .warm milk and some biscuits he fell asleep directly, and she sat by him, holding h...

There-was no moon, but the northern lights'shimmered-upon the sleeping fields and discovered an horizon for a placid sea. Desdy was much comforted that Hugh should come with them, and lie got into the carriage manfully and sat down with "an air of authority good to see. The excitement had waked him thor oughly, and he asked them many an embarrassing question. Had "the man" come Iback? Was Laliy still frightened of him? Hugh tried to tell him, but did not make much of a job of it. "You are going to Edinburgh, Desdy •—tomorrow I will show you the shops and we will buy something good—you must not think of it now, old chap; you must try to sleep."

It was almost dusk when they re turned to the Castle, so altruistic had been their motives of delay. Lights shone from all the '.pper windows of that venerable pile. Footmen in the halls below walked with the measured step of those who have found an oc cupation again after many days. Leila had begged that she might retire to her own cell during these hours of prescribed carnival, but he would not hear of it - "You owe me that much," he said. "You must save me from the tigers." She made no answer, and they en tered the great hall together. There were guests already arrived—and a bruit of events which was ominous. She had not seen Desdy since lunch, and was pleased enough to hear his voice as she went up the great stair case from the garden. He had been piaying at tramways with the Archdeacon, and that vener able functionary rose from the floor with knees which bore witn...
