A HUGE PROFIT. Sir James Yoxall tells. In his new book about collecting, another story nf n nnllentor'a handsome profit— i "A bookseller purchased for £200 the MS. of one of Dickens' best works. For a long time that interesting manu script had lain neglected. I am told that it had been left on the mantel piece of an empty house formerly in habited by a person connected with Charles Dickens in business. The bookseller tried to sell it for £500, and failed; £400, and failed; £300, and failed. "A few years later, having to meet a sudden demand for cash, he parted with the MS. for the sum he gave for it, £200. The purchaser at that price kept the MS. for some years, un til one morning a bookseller, the agent of a now famous but at that time unknown collector of rarities, came to the owner of the MS. and of fered to buy it. " 'My price is £2000,' said the owner. A cheque was written on the j spot." - .

BUSINESS-LIKE WOMAN. (A claim is put forward in one of the dailies that girls are more alert in money matters than men.) Nona is what you call a bachelor girl. She has a little money, and enough self-confidence to float a bat tleship—or any other little trick that self-confidence comes in useful for. The other day 1 called on Nona with a pair of gloves she said she bad won ; ! over some trivial dispute of ours. She was reading a paper with every appearance of satisfaction. "Hello!" she said, from the sofa, "you don't mean to say you've remem ibered the gloves at last?" She put ; down the paper thoughtfully. "It's quite true," she added. "Yes," I said, "quite true.

HEALTH NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 21 May 1914

HEALTH NOTES. By Dr. Lechmere Anderson. Each different part of the body ia specially adapted to perform certain duties, and no part can satisfactorily perform the function of another part. Thus, the mouth is Jltted with 32 teeth, a tongue and a digestive fluid i called saliva, all of which are needed to perform the first yorrioa of the digestive process on food, but (i<ero is no provision at all made in Uie mouth for dealing with air. On the other hand, the nose is most wonder fully adapted for that purpose.

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 21 May 1914

LADIES' LETTER. (By "Irene.") A Melbourne girl writing from Lyons speaks of her visits to the shops, which are very beautiful and in which wares are attractively dis played, but she says one cannot help contrasting the life of the French shopgirl with that of the Melbourne girl, the wages and the hours being so different.' In Lyons the shops open at seven - in the morning and remain open until eight in the evening. Only a few of the best shops close on Satur day afternoon, and most of them are open on Sunday. The highest wage a girl reecives is 15/ a week, which is vastly different to that obtainable here. My correspondent has also been shown through several large silk warehouses, and says that crepe de chine has been quite ousted by taf fetas, and that to be quite chic every thing must show a touch o£ tartan. An Interesting piece o£ fashion news has come from Paris. Burglars car ried away from an emporium 500 cor sets in motor-cars. Articles are known to have been carried away from...

UNPLEASANT FOR THE ENGINEER. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 21 May 1914

UNPLEASANT FOR THE ENGINEER. A marine engineer tells of an un pleasant piece of work he once had to do during the trial trip oi a magnifi cent boat that a large firm o£ contrac tors had turned out for one of the big 'ocean-going steamship companies. The engines were to run at so many knots an hour, and the big steamer left her moorings and put out to sea for her trial cruise that was to de cide'whether she would be accepted by the steamship company. He writes:—After we had been out to sea but a little time, the chief engin eer discovered that one of the piston rods had a slight defect in it—a thing not infrequent in a large mass of ma chinery—and that in passing to and fro the unwonted friction caused by this defect would in the course of a very little time make the piston and all around it red hot. The conse quence of 'this would foe very serious, and would mean a breakdown in the machinery. To allow it to occur would be madness; to stop the machinery to remedy the defect wquld rui...
