FROM VARIOUS SOURCES [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 July 1914

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES A young man who has a small es tate In the country fell In love with a Pobart girl, and in his case the course o£ true love did run Bmoothly, After a brief courtship the wedding day was fixed, and the girl's father excellod .himself in the lavish arrangements he made for the wedding breakfast. The best business people in Liverpool and Elizabeth streets received orders for the supply of articles for the break last table, which rather astonished them. When the wedding day arrived the breakfast table was the theme of .general admiration. The head of the family, who had shown a lordly dis regard for economy, was praised by all; even his better half was astound ed at the liberality displayed, as she knew how mean he usually was.

About a fortnight later the son-in-law .received a bulky letter from his wife's ;fathe...

Tommy: "Well-Unit-the- calibre of the average Upper Form boy close ly approximates to Olympic status, which fact, taken in conjunction with, the known pugnacity to teachers of all students denominated of the mascu line gender, tends to act as a salutary -deterrent to impulsive or precipitate action on the part of an unwise peda gogue!"

COMPOSITION FLOORING FOR SHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 July 1914

COMPOSITION FLOORING FOR SHIPS. A composition flooring has at last been invented which seems to meet the requirements demanded by ship builders for waterproof deck and floor coverings. The chief difficulty with other composition floorings has been that they are too hard, and cannot be kept from cracking under the strains and stresses of a floating structure. The new composition has such resili ency and power of expansion to take up the vibrations of a ship and all changes in temperature, from 30deg. below zero in winter to 100 deg. in the summer. In addition, the flooring forms a perfect bond with wood, steel, and concrete-so perfect that it can not be removed except with a hammer and chisel. As it is entirely mineral in character, it is absolutely proof against cold, fire, or water. «The com position is a mixture of asphalt, pow dered stone, and other ingredients, which is cooked in a mass for many hours. It is applied boiling hot and solidifies quickly. While it is per fectly impe...

WHY BAD TEMPER MAKES YOU UGLY. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 July 1914

WHY BAD TEMPER MAKE8 YOU By a Medlcal Man. - It is said by many peopl^that, whilBt the art and science of surgery ad vances by .leaps and bounds, the sister science of medicine moves onwards -very slowly. This shows lack of know ledge. It muBt be admitted that Bur gery has made marvellous , progress of late years. Things thought impos Bible a score, even a dozen years ago are of everyday occurrence now. An incised wound of the heart has been stitched up, a ruptured bladder -fiutured, a stomach removed, the large intestine excised, a piece of diseased bone sawn off and a piece of sound bone grafted in its place, and all the patients recovered. But the physicians have not been idle. The researches in, embryology, tracing the origin of tissues and the gradual building-up of ;the more complicated organs, have thrown much-needed light on the most vital phenomena of life. Inquiries into the molecular changes of nerve cells, the chemistry of the human body, the activities of certain bacter...

LADIES' LETTER. From "Irene" in Melbourne. Mrs. Norman Menzies, wife of the .proprietor of Melbourne's swell hotel, but -best-known to the general public as Miss Dorothy Vane, has decided to return to the footlights. She has accepted an engagement with J. C. Williamson Ltd. and will portray the leading roles in the Gilbert and Sulli- ' van opera season, which begins on .June 27 at Her Majesty's Theatre. Miss Vane is enthusiastic about her reappearance on the stage. Speaking the other day, she said: "Ever since I left the stage I have wanted to go back. There is no doubt about it. Though the life of the stage has its disappointing phases, once you belong to it, you always belong to it. The subtle hold it gets over one may be al most imperceptible at times, but it is not the less strong. One might say that the stage gets into one's blood. 1 need not say that every time I have witnessed a first-night performance I have looked longingly at the people tbehind the footlights and wished I ...

Football. LISMORE STILL UNBEATEN. GOOD WIN AGAINST CRESSY. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 July 1914

football. .' LISMOKE STILL UNBEATEN. GOOD WIN AGAINST CRESSY. Saturday afternoon saw a still bigger crowd than the previous Saturday at the Lismore recreation reserve, to wit ness the match with Cressy. The weather was fine, but a northerly wind gave the side kicking with it a decided advantage, particularly in the first part of the match. The visitors, captained by Commons, had a good even team with very few blanks in it. Lismore, on the other hand, started with two . men short, and Jim Williamson, who .was such a tower of strength to them .in their match with Fox how, was put out.of action early in the first quarter. ,Dave Walters, Lismore's old captain, donned Williamson's uniform, and al- ; though obviously out-of practice, ren dered material assistance to the winning -side. It was a good match, full of ; .dash and incident, and undoubtedly the j better side won. Lismore repeated j their performance of a week ago by i finishing strongly. They added two goals 2 bhds in the last q...

Foiled Again. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 July 1914

Foiled Again. Papa Bending keeps a pretty sharp eye on his daughter Mary, and many a would-be lover has taken a walk for a few minutes' conversation with the hard-hearted parent. "You seem like a nice young man, and perhaps you are in love with Mary?" "Yes, I am," was the honest reply. "Haven't said anything to her yet, have you?" continued Papa Bending. "Well, no; but I think she recipro cates my affection." "Does, eh? Well, let me tell you something. Her mother died a luna tic, and there's no doubt that Mary has inherited her insanity." "I'm willing to take the chanceB," replied the lover. "Yes; but, you see, Mary has a terrible temper. She has twice drawn a knife on me with intent to commit murder." "I'm used to that-got a sister just like her," was the answer. "And you should know that I have sworn a solemn oath not to give TSii ry a penny of my property," con tinued the father. "Well, I'd rather Btart poor and build up. There's more romance in it, Mr. Bending," continued the lo...

Mr. Birrell told a ghost story at the Bristol Press Fund dinner, when re sponding to tho toast, "Literature and Journalism." in referring to a recent speech by Dr. Silvanus Thompson on the importance of science, Mr. Birrell' said: "I don't know, my Lord Mayor, whether you ever have bad dreams, but I have been haunted ever since I was almost a boy by the constant re petition of one and the Bame dream. "It comes to me again and again. It is this. I dream I am walking about somewhere in some plain or de sert, and I suddenly encounter the agitated ghost of Sir Isaac Newton, lie approaches me, his eye almost starting out of his head; he tells me who he is, and how ignorant he is of all that has happened in the world of science since he left.

Didn't M Iss Them. "So your wife has lost lier teeth?" asked the sympathetic friend. "How in the world does she manage to get along without them?" "Oh, it's no bother to her," gloom ily returned Mr. Henpeck, "she has a biting tongue, you know." Glass bottles which have contained oil are very difficult to clean; but if they are required for any purpose try the following. Fill the bottle with ashes and place it in cold water, which heat gradually till it boils. Let It boil half-an-hour, then let the bot tle remain in the water till cold. Wash in soapsuds and rinse in clear water. . . | Some of our' people appear to be holding their weapons-or tools-in the old ways, and to be advancing slowly, if not (backward. And yet there is progress forward. More lands are cultivated, a few cultivate in better ways, houses are better, homes are more homelike, "arid there is a distinct improvement in live stock. ! ;'

EGGS THAT CROAK. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 July 1914

EGGS THAT CROAK. That young unmatched crocodiles ut ter an audible croaking cry within the eggs in which they are laid is averred by "Knowledge," and it adds that the cry is so loud and distinct that it can be heard when the eggs are buried under one or two yards of sand. Dr. W. A. Laraborn tested the fact at Lagos, on the West African coast. He heard a croaking noise from be low a dry path, and, digging in the path to investigate the cause, he dis covered thirteen crocodile's eggs at a depth of about 18in. All the young crocodiles hatched out within half an hour of being dug up. So far back as 1899 Dr. Voeltzlcow noticed that unhatched Madagascar crocodiles uttered a, cry from the egg at a depth of two yards, and that any shock, as of a heavy tread, near the egg caused the baby crocodiles to ' produce this sound "with the mouth closed, as we produce hiccup sounds." In this way they inform the female crocodile when she visits the nest that they want her aid, whereupon she scrapes th...

He wa» downcast and blue, And the smile would have helped him, to battle it through. Did you give him your hand? He was. slipping down hill, And the world, so I fancied, was using, him ill. Did you give him a word? Did you. show him the road, Or did you just let him go on witli his load? Do you know what it means to be losing the fight, When a lift just in time might set everything right? Do you know what it means-just the clasp of a hand, When a man's borne about all a man. ought to stand? Did you ask what it was-wny the quivering lip? Why the half-suppressed sob, and the scalding tears drip? Were you brother of his when the time came of need? Did you offer to help him, or didn't you heed?

ADRIFT ON AN ICEBERG A SECOND OFFICER'S STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 July 1914

ADRIFT ON AN ICEBERG A SECOND OFFICER'S 8TORY. <<c*ail ho! Vessel right ahead, sir! She's close to us, sir! Port, sir, port!" yelled the lookout man at two o'clock one foggy morning, as the Morning Herald -was speeding along over the wintry fleas of the Southern Ocean, bound for Valparaiso. "Hard a-port!" shouted the chief officer, who was on watch at the time, but had not seen the vessel un til reported by the lookout man. "Hard over, man, hard over!" But, alas! the ship's head paid off too late, and, with a fearful crash, we struck, not a vessel, as it was sup posed, but an iceberg. I was second officer of the ship, and it had been my watch below at the time of the occurrence; but I had been awakened by hearing the fran tic shouting of the man on the lookout, and the loud, eager, and ex citedly-given orders of the chief offi cer to the man at the helm, and, hav ing an instinctive dread that some thing serious was about to happen, I hastily jumped out of my bu...

NEW INVENTION MAKES SEA SAFE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 July 1914

NEW INVENTION MAKE8 SEA SAFE. A remarkable invention pregnant with useful possibilities . is the wire less long-distance mirror. Its purpose, in brief, is to convey an image in the, same manner that sounds are now. communicated. It is a radical improvement on the old-time camera obscura, a structure in which the real image of an object is projected upon a white table or other plane surface. Not only does the new apparatus reflect on a mir-. .ror all objects located and all hapipen ings occuring within a much greater ; area than the camera obsoura, but it operates at night. Just how the machine works has not yet been revealed, but it is known to consist of a web of wires attached' to a tall mast, and it is this web that receives the impressions and projects them on to the mirror located at the , base of the mast. The principal value of the new ap paratus will be in its application to ships. It is expected to prevent colli sions with other ships, icebergs, or derelicts by disclosing t...
