THE HAPPY MAN. Two men sat in the lobby of an hotel the other night, arguing vocifer ously, while a third man smoking a long and costly cigar, listened to the , argument with a calm, comfortable, i serene air. J The argument was about happiness. The men claimed, for different rea sons, that it was impossible to he per fectly happy-or, as one of them put it: "No fallible human being is capable iof so forgetting life's trials and tribu lations, or so withdrawing, so to say, from his defective mortal entity, as to become completely possessed, even for a moment, with a sense of perfect happiness." The speaker turned to the man who was smoking the long, expensive cigar so comfortably, 1 "Don't you agree to that, sir?" he j asked. The other flicked oil his ash, with a chuckle. "Gentlemen," lie said, "I am perfect ly happy now." "What!" cried the first speaker.

j A FORGOTTEN PAST. By H, J. B1CKLE. The Coronation Theatre was pack ed from stalls to gallery with a vast auUlenco whoso absorbed attention seemed llxcd almost breathlessly upon the stage.

It was the flrst night of a now play, tho first appearance ot a new actress, and both were creating a wondorful impression. And now, la this tense, dramatic moment, when tho woman on the stage, a tragic llgure, with pale face and haunting eyes, stood battling with a crisis in her lite, the picture that she made lived in tho memory long after. At the end of the last act tho cur tain was lifted again and again; ap plause, long sustained, echoed through the L-i:Jl(lii.p; an extraordinary scene of enthusiasm prevailed.

FOR THE FARMER. BRANDING CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 7 August 1914
| ' FOR THE FARMER. BRANDING CATTLE. The great wasto of money entailed by our present iuolhods of branding cattle ia a subjoct which periodically crops up in tho newspapers and loa» ther trade journals. It never appears, however, to get past this stage, for tho same injurious method of apply ing hot irons to tho best part of an animal's hide still continues. In this connection it is pointed out by the English Farmers' Federation that the differonce in price of leather, were it not branded, is probably 3d. to -Id. per pound. Then, again, raw hides, If not branded, would fetch Id. per pound more, and, as these hides weigh from CO lb. to SO lb. the difference in value is very appreciable. The Federa tion advocates either an alteration of the method of branding, op that the animals be branded with smaller brands, on tho cheeks, ears, or flanks -not on the rump or the back, as is at present nearly always done. They consider that this would be equally distinguishable, and would do from 5/...

"Yes; for the last eight years 1 nave had nothing hotter than four penny print, and I want something better. I'm tired of getting into print."

VARIETIE8. "YOB," said tho young student ".houghttully, "when I get interested In a subject I iwver stop until I havo ombraced It thoroughly." "That's nice," was tho hesitating reply.

A Midnight Messenger. ifivcrard Gllray struggled to be tree. What did this outrage menu? Who was this ragged, seedy fellow, who had thus dared to attack liim on his own doorstep on the stroke of twelve? And tills was not some slum In the East End-It was the respectable, dull, decorous Harloy-strcct. Gllray had slipped his Yalo key in the front door, the polished mahogany portal stood open showing tho luxury and comfort and elegance of tho hall in the dim, shaded electric light when this ragged nomad had emerged from the sha dows and gripped liim by tho shoul der. A beggar no doubt, some Impudent follow relying on tho lateness of the hour and tho stillness of the street to onforco a demand for alms. Gllray turned llorcely upon him, his loft shot out and tho rulllan staggered under the force of the blow. The street outside was abso...
TRADE RUNNERS. NOVEL LIFE IN AUSTRALIAN PORT. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 7 August 1914
TRADE RUNNERS. , NOVEL LIFE IN AUSTRALIAN PORT. An interesting phase of lifo in the. port ol Nowonstlo (Australia) a few years ago was that ot trade-running. The ships runulug to make port were sought out In tho open aoa by "but cher" boats manned by export onrs tnon, wlioso object was to gain the quarter-deck ot tho Incoming aailora before rival traders, so that they might secure tlie ordors for meat, bread, or clothes. To-day steam tramps do a large share ot tho conl-cnrryjng trade, and ovon with the sailors that remain the provldoring of the vessel is often arranged beforehand by tho owners or charterers. Tho story ot the trade-runners IB full of oxcltoment, and not Infrequent ily smacks of dangerous adventure. It | was the keenness of trtjdo rivalry that added zest to the game. There woro the Ioofcout mon, the well-trained oars men and cos, ami .all the excitement of tho chase.

CHAPTER II. The White Hand. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 7 August 1914
CHAPTER II. The White Hand. Gilrny stared wonderingly at tho speaker. Ho could only wait for the other man to speak. It looked that night as if nil tho world had gone mad, as If law and order, and tho sacred rights of property wore no more. For this man was not shirking or abashed; there was no suggestion of an apology about him. On the contrary, his mnnner was cooly con temptuous, over superior; it was as if a magistrate were addressing a first offender. Ho was a waster, of course, and a failure-ovon his cool and easy au dacity could not conceal that. But ho was undoubtedly a strong man, and Gllroy did not fall to rocogniBC tho fact. "How did you got here?" ho stam mered. "Does it matter?" tho other asked. "Lot It sudlco that I am horo. Be fore long you will bo glad I came. Permit me to introduce myself.

Chance for the Country Party GRAIN ELEVATORS WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 7 August 1914
Chance for the Country Party GRAIN ELEVATORS WANTED. Victoria is lugging behind Westralla and New South Wales in respect to grain carriage in built. These two widely-divided States are preparing io erect grain silos and elevators, and 110 doubt tliey will induce shipping companies to lit up their holds speci ally l'or tlie reception ol' unbagged wheat. Such Kliips will slum the port of .Melbourne until it is brought into line. Tlie grain production of Austra lia is still in its infancy. Dlstuncp from the European market hampers its growlb. Bulk handling would cut away part of this handicap. The Country Party in Victorian Legisla ture lias tlie chance of its lifetime now to press for grain eiovators, while the now Premier Is gingerly gathering up tho lines of his policy and Is In a pliable condition and sen sitive to the promptings of any rea sonable section of his followers.

CHAPTER III. The Sard Intaglio. Gilray moved back as if that long, slim hand was some foarful thing fraught with peril. Yet ho was strange ly fascinated by it, it aroused all his artistic sense and love of the beauti ful. Nor was lie blind to the value of those beautiful old rlngB that decked it with their glittering brilliants. It seemed to him that ho had seen one of tliem before In a famous collection of jewels. Surely the one with the panel of stones had been part of the D'Alen CUB treasures. Gilray could have sworn that he had once had it In his hand for in spection; that it; was something ho at ono time had boon half disposed to buy. Sweating and trembling as he was from head to foot, he could not keep these thoughts out of his mind. Tho slim, white arm advanced, the slender fingers with tho nails of pearl were almost on hla foot, the waving light mado circles of llamo in tho sha dows, he could see the gleaming oyeB of tho terrified rats.

GEELONG " WAKES 'UP. PivOT CITY NOW PROGRESSIVE. Gccloiig is uwuke! A few years ago there was not so very much exagger ation iu the story that a person in Moorabool-street at 1U i>.m. was liable to be looked upon as a suspect. Now its tram bells chime in harmony with the dulcet tones irom the post ollico clock ut midnight. To accord with the prol'essed sanctity ot the city, no doubt, the post-oiliee bells ring out a stanza ot' something like "Abide \VUh jMe."

PREVENTION OF COLDS. Now is the tlrao for colds and many I pcoplo resign themselves to the idea that when because the winter comes they must perforce suffer more or loss from the troublesome cold in the head. But there Is no need for it at all, and hundreds of men and wo men can go through a winter without a single cold. . How do they do it?
