IN LOVE WITH A PICTURE. The Italian Who Stole "Monna Lisa" from the Louvre is not the First Man to Fall a Victim to the Charm of a Picture. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 8 May 1914

j IN LOVE WITH A PICTURE. The Italian Who Stole "Monna Lisa" from the Louvre is not tho First Man to Fall a Victim to the Charm of a Picture, "I fell In lovo with 'Monna Lisa.'" That -svfts the declaration of, Vincen zo Perugia, the man who stole the famous picture, made to the police. After he hud taken it from the Louvre he said that he went home, locltod himself in hiB room, and stood en* tranced before it, bewitched by the smile of La Gloconda. There were times, he said, when lie felt that he must destroy the picture or ho would go mad, so haunting was the smile. "Monna Liim" has always had ad mirers. One of the Louvre guides at the time the picturc was stolen, stated that he had seen visitors sit in front of it for hours, captivated by the se ductive smile; and the museum au thorities often used to have letters addressed to "The original of 'Monna Lisa'!" Far more people than Vincenzo Per ugia have fallen 'madly in love with well-known pictures. It was ^illais's picture "Opheli...

LAUGHTER AND LONG LIFE. I [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 15 May 1914

LAUGHTER AND LONG LIFE. I It may bo (observes the "Lancet") that sotuo enthusiastic and laborious German statistician • has already ac cumulated figures bearing upon the question of length of life ami its rela tion to tho enjoyment thereof; if eo, we arc unacquainted with his results, and yet have a very decided notion that people who enjoy life—cheerful people—are also thoBO to whom long est life is given, uommouplnce though this sounds, there is no truth more commonly ignored in actual ovory-day existence. "Oh, yes, of course, worry shortens life, and the contented peo ple live to be old!" we arc all ready to say; and yet how many peoplo re cognise the duty of cheerfulness? Most persons will dcclaro that if a mau is not naturally cheerful ho can not make himself so. Yet this Ib far from being the case, and there is many a man who is at present a weary 'burden to his relatives, miser able through the carklng caro of eomo bodily ailment perhaps, or Bome worldly misfortune, who, if h...

AN INGENIOUS MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 15 May 1914

AN INGENIOUS MACHINE. A few years ago the South Austra j lian Government offered a prizo 'or the invention of a stoncgatherini? machine to be used on sjme of the barren lands that it was desired to render available for cultivation. The first 'competition was abortive, for no machines were entered. Again the prize was offered, Dut the hvo or three machines that were entered failed to do the work. Now, however, we learn (says "The Hardwareman") that ■ two Australians have invented i\n Im ! proved rake and stone gatherer for 1 clearing stony land. The new idea jvas given a public trial recently, und ! did its work very successfully. The j rake, which is trfangular in shape, and works in snake fashion, leaves the stones in a straight row. It Is followed by the stone gatherer, which consists of a large wheel, which picks up all the stones, large and small, and deposits them in the drav which runs i alongside. The land was too stony to j use for agricultural purposes previous I to the tri...

ONCE MORE DUAL-PURPOSE. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 15 May 1914

ONCE MORE DUAL-PURPOSE. Tho dual-purpose ghost will not downj and yet for all it# bobbing up iter© and there and gibbering, it is uutluug tnuro than a ghost.

Most of Mr. Cowan's article is a ro-haah of ancieut history, but ho occasionally makes a concrete state ment. Like all other advocates of this dolusion, he completely ignores tho two basic objections to the theory:—(i) That it ia a subversion of true brood ing principles to attempt to unite pro* fitabiy two such opposing tempera ments as the milk temperament and who beof temperament; (2) that tho produc tion of such cattlo ia uneconomic, so far at leant as tho dairy fa...

CURIOUS LEGACY TO A SWISS EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 15 May 1914

CURIOUS LEGACY TO A SWISS EDITOR. A wealthy and eccentric Swiss liv ing at Moscow, who died recently from an accident, left a novel will. Per haps the most curious clause is that a certain sum every year should be paid to the present editor of the jour nal "Wochenzeitung," of Winterthur, in Switzerland, "To drink to my health." The Swiss was a native of Winter thur, and the paper was his favorite one, but the editor, who has accepted the gift to drink to a dead man's health, never saw or heard of the man. There is only one condition attach ed to the bequest: the "ceremonies" must take place on January 1 and August 1 every year until the editor's death. Pride is not all vanity or vainglory. The pride arising out of ignorance of oneself is quite distinct from a proper self-esteem which sets before one a high ideal of conduct as being due to the Individual, to the family, to the school or to the race. Nothing succeeds like looking suc cessful.
