A RUSSIAN WEDDING. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 17 April 1914

A RUSSIAN WEDDING. A Russian wedding is described by a traveller who was one of the invited guests. It was to take place at 8 p.m., but the brida, of course, was late. Instead of arriving at eight o'clock, it was nearly nine before she made her appearance. She was pre ceded by her nephew, a little boy five years old, holding an image of "Our Lord." The child gave this to the priest, and then the service began. Neither organ nor any musical in strument is allowed in the Russian Church, so the choir, consisting of five men, chanted. The priest alter nately read and the choir chanting went on for about half an hour. The priest then addressed several words to the bride and bridegroom. Two gentlemen, "garcons d'honneur," or groomsmen, stepped forward and were each given a crown, which they were to hold over the bride and bride groom's head until the end of the service. The priest then put a wedding-ring on the third finger of the right hand of each, and the chanting went 011 as before. T...

Quite Lively Enough. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 17 April 1914

Quite Lively Enough. Seated on an empty box in front of a log cabin in the Far West was a man cleaning a double-barrelled gun. A passing tourist stopped to cliat, and asked liim how far it was to the nearest neighbor's. "A trifle over two miles," he re plied. "As far as that? You must find it rather lonely here." "INo, I can't say as I do. You see. 1 mortgaged this claim for four hun dred dollars. And I couldn't pay, so ttey foreclosed." The stranger murmured an exclam ation of surprise. "That was two years ago, and the sheriff has been trying to get posses sion ever since. He comes twice a week, and we have-a shot at each other; and at least twice a week some idiot comes along and wants to know if I ain't lonely; and then there are thieving tramps and rattlesnakes; so this life is about as exciting as I like. There comes the sheriff now. You had better lie down behind that log, and keep clear of his gun." , Messrs. Stone and Co., meat sales men, Metropolitan Meat Market, Mel bourne...

PRISON MASTERPIECES. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 17 April 1914

PRISON MASTERPIECES. Byron's famous poem, "The Prison er of Chillon," is supposed to be writ ten by Bonnivard, the Genevan pa triot, whilst he was incarcerated in the Chateau of Chillon, on the shores of the lake. But the poem was really written at lightning speed whilst Byron was imprisoned by inclement weather for a night and a day in the neighborhood. Nevertheless, some notable literary achievements have been really writ ten in gaol, undoubtedly the most out standing being two of the world's greatest classics, "The Adventures of Don Quixote" and "The Pilgrim's Pro gress." If only those two books had belonged to the literature of captivity they would have been sufficient to make that literature distinguished and immortal. Thomas Cooper, the Chartist, whose life reads like a romance, and whose name is held in reverence by modern reformers, wrote a remarkable poem whilst he was lying in prison on ac count of his political agitation. This poem bears the remarkable title of "The Purga...

ONE OF THE GREATEST MYSTERIES OF HISTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 17 April 1914

ONE OF THE GREATEST MYSTERIES OF HISTORY. la the ye^;* 1828 there appeared in the streets of Nuremburg a youth who could apparently not even stand se curely. Upon his person a card was found, stating that, owing to certain directions, he had been kept since his birth in absolute seclusion, never seeing anyone or being taught any thing. Gradually the boy was taught to read and write, though, till his dis covery, he could not speak a word ex cept to say his name, "Kasper Hau ser," which he had been taught to re peat like a parrot; nor did he know the name of a single object. By de grees he related that he had spent all his life in a dark "hole," where he was fed by a man every day, though he could not describe him, owing to the darkness in which he had always seen him. At last Kasper Hauser was taken in charge by an English nobleman— Lord Stanhope—and educated to take the place of a clerk; but one day, while out walking, the young man. who was now about twenty-one years old, according...

WHISTLES AT HIS WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 17 April 1914

WHISTLES AT HIS WORK. "My boy," said Uncle Hiram, "don't, for pity's sake, look glum, An' don't set tight your" lips as if they speechless were, an' dumb, When some, hard task's before you, ior, though laboring like a Turk, The happiest fellow's he who sings or whistles at his work. A lesson from the buzz-saw learn, that rings with honest glee, While into lumber it converts the trunk of stoutest tree, That hums a low-toned melody when easiest's its lot, An' always sings the loudest when it strikes the hardest knot. "To make of every task a joy you'll find's an art worth while; The hardest problems of the world . are solved by thos.e who smile. Abe Lincoln, when affairs of state perplexed him, deigned to chaff, Well knowing fogs would lift before the sunshine of a laugh. He joked when those about him stood in woe and gloom profound, Yet 'twas his laughter-wrinkled brow that fame undying crowned. He smiled, or likely chuckled, through each problem's softest spot, But shook with hearty...
