SOLDIERS THREE. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 10 April 1914
SOLDIERS THREE. When over a dozen years ago Colonel Tom Price marched through Melbourne streets with the first Victorian contingent for South Africa, he had in the rnotely group behind him a big burly solicitor in the person of " Tim " M'Inerney, of whom no one would have taken much notice had it not been for the queer antics played by bis brother "Tom'' who, as warden of the University Senate, was fairly well-known to a section of the public. Besides, the occasion was an emotional one, and so the i M'Inerney vagaries passed, especially as Warden Tom was known to be eccentric and, on one occasion, puzzled the A.N.A. authorities for weeks in trying to decide whether he was born at Kilrush or Kangaroo Flat. Years passed on and all that the public knew of Tim was that he had drop ped into a snug Government billet across the Indian Ocean. Then came back as Major M'Inerney and became president of the Celtic Ciab in which capacity he has been saying rude things about Ulster and Field-Mar ...
OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. A BIG RIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 10 April 1914
OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. i ■■ i (From our own correspondent;. A BIG RIDE. Day by day the newspapers have chronicled the progress made by Miss Gracie Waugh, the young lady who set out to ride trom Melbourne to Sydney. It is stated that when going up a long hill near Tarcutta she felt lonely and did a couple of I weeps. One would not wish to ' detract in any way from the young lady's pluck 01; senso of what is becoming, but still it is difficult to know exactly what is the reason lor her performance, It was made a matter for public comment by her announcing a public start from NVirth's Park, which, by the way, is the home of ctrcus business. When the young lady arrived in Sydney she received a great reception, and for a few days may find herself bracketed with Harry Lauder, Major M'Inerney, General Gough, and other great personages as a public favorite, but the question remains, cui bono ? Asa feat of horsemanship and endur ance the performance is no more than respectable. Eleven and a h...

MEN ON THE JOB. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 10 April 1914
MEN ON THE JOB. Parliament and the public were stirred to their depths a year or two ago by revelations as to the systema tic loafing done by telephone tunnel men " on the job." During the last week or two I have had a lengthened opportunity of realising that the " man on the job" is not. dead, but flourishing like a green tree in the department. Some time ago, all the telephones in the building where I &nbsp; am located were connected with &nbsp; underground wires, after lengthy operations involving the continual cutting off of the phone. A week or two ago another official came along and after fiddling about for a day or two announced that everything was now alright with number 001. But our number is 002 he was told, and after further investigation he dis- covered that there was no under- ground wire for 002. Still the tele- phone worked, and so later on a small army arrived bearing bundles of wire, tools, etc. Then the work (sic) began. A regular band of four exper...
MAKING THE BISHOP LAUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 17 April 1914
MAKING THE BISHOP LAUGH. Probably one of the prettiest com pliments ever paid to the fair sex was that contained in the answer made by Dr. Potter, Bishop of New York, who was once asked by a lady why, in the many pictures and studies of angels exhibited, the angels were always de picted either as women or as young men without beards or moustaches. "Everyone knows," replied the Bishop, "that women naturally inherit the Kingdom of Heaven, but men only get in by a very close shave." This story is related by the Rev. T. Selby Henrey, liear of St. George (Brentford), whose little volume, en titled "Attic «6alt," provides many an illustration of the fact that wit and appreciation of humor are not the least prominent characteristics of lead ing divines. He tells a story of the late Dr. Creighton, who once received a book from a second-rate author, to whom he replied by post, "I thank you very much for forwarding to me your book, and I promiss you faithfully that I will not lose any time in...
Let It Go at That. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 17 April 1914
Let It Go at That. A lady who is a district visitor be-' came much interested in a very poor, but apparently reBpectable, Irish fam ily named Curran, living on the top floor of a great building in a slum dis trict of her parish. Every time she visited the Currans the was annoyed by the staring arid whispering of the other women living in the building. One day she said to Mrs. Curran: "Your neighbors seem very curious to know who and what I am, and the nature of my business with you." "They do," acquiesced Mrs. Curran. "Do they ask you about it?" "Indade they do, ma'am." "And do you tell them?" - "Faith, then, I do not." "What do you tell them" "Oo just tell them," was the calm, reply, "that you are me dressmaker, an' let it go at that."

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 17 April 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. A strong solution of borax poured down sinks and drains will banish of fensive smells. A little ground almonds mixed through a fruit cake will prevent the fruit sinking to the bottom. If you want to heat a flat-iron in your room, a tin plate over the gas jet will enable you to heat the iron.twice as quickly. Before, blanching almondi? soak them for two or three minutes in boiling water; the skin will then slip off quite easily.' Scorch marks on linen may be re moved by rubbing with a fresh-cut onioc, the garment being aftorvards soaked in cold water. To stop hiccough, give the patient a teaspoonful of granulated sugar and vinegar. If this does not afford in stant relief, repeat the dose. When boiling any kind of green3, use sugar in place of soda, whidi gives the greens a much better flavor, but they then require a little longer cooking.

THE FLAW. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 17 April 1914
THE FLAW. Within the church a chant ascends, The flower-decked aisle divides The bridegroom's relations and friends From those that are the bride's. And he is there, a stalwart youth Of manly charm possessed, And she, a prize in very truth, In pearly satin dressed. The vows are made, the prize is his, Yes, really, his, at last! But as he claims the nuptial kiss His brow is overcast. And when the joybells peal on high, When wine and speeches flow, There comes into his sparkling eye A furtive look of woe. Beside him sits his chosen bride, In his she slips her hand, But though she .smiles on him in pride \ She does not understand. His hidden anguish, though acute, Must all alone be borne— The toecap of his patent boot Is pressing on a corn. —Jessie Pope.

It is to be understood that we in 110 way identify our selves with the views expressed by contributors under this heading. „ SOCIALISTIC ECONOMY. To the Editor "Nhill Free Press." Sin,—Some time ago the Socialistic Federal Government hacl erected 15 residences lor Government officials at Myilly Point, about one mile from Darwin, at from £1500 to £2000 each, or a total sum of £26,000. Fivo of these residences were to bo occupied now, and 10 for future use—to keep the men on j the job and have some Federal money circulated in that district, but as they had no immediate occupiers, tho white ants took possession and made them unfit for human occupation, and it is now reported they may break down any day. These 15 houses, if built by open com petition, would probably have cost leas than ouc-third of the rnouey. The above is an example of how the La...

THE LOST LAKE OF GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 17 April 1914
THE LOST LAKE OF GOLD. Somewhere in north-western Ari zona—the' precise whereabouts is now a matter of conjecture—is a lake of gold formed by Nature. On Decem ber 13, 1858, a party o£ gold-seekers, twenty-two men in all, were prospect ing in north-western Arizona when they came upon a band o£ nomad Apaches, who had with them consid erable gold, in the shape of nuggets and dust. After many pressing ques tions as to where they had obtained ii, a half-bred Mexican volunteered to guide the white men to the spot for a consideration. He led them three hundred miles over a wild and desert country, to a spot near the head waters of the Gila river, where there were three mountain peaks in the form of a triangle. Here was a dried-up lake, the ancient bed a jumble of nuggets and gold-dust. The prospectors shov elled £40,000 worth into sacks, and twelve of them set out with it to Fort Yuma. They never reached Yuma, however, for they were am bushed and killed by Apaches in a defile since known a...
