A PUGILISTIC CABBY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 14 November 1914

A PUGilISTIC CABBY. MRr. Grant Allen used to tell of an amusing experience with a London cab-driver. After leaving his publisher's, he hired a cab to drive to a brother novelist. On arriving at his destination he tendered the cabby four shillings, which was a little over the proper fare. The driver, however, was not satisfied, and wanted six shillings. Grant Al len refused to pay more, whereupon the driver offered to fight him for it. Allen, who knew as mu~ch about the art of self-defence as the man in the mnoon, was rather taken back at the man's request ; however, he agreed, saying. "The very thing, my friend will'hold the money and act as refe ree, so come along." Cabby got down and followed him into the gar den. Allen then placed the six shil lings intb his friend's hand, took-off his coat, rolled up his shirt-sleeves all with an air of cheerful alacrity, and bade the man come on. His anxiety was intense, but it relaxed as he watched the cabman's face, ihowing deubt, surprise, a...

ACROSS DEATH VALLEY. A Forbidding Desert. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 21 November 1914

,a[ RU U~LMn VALLEY. A Forbidding Desert. '"It was as the sun was rising that we began our descent from Para mint Hange to take our way across Death Valley, in Southern California. the mountain surface is in rolls and drifts until it reaches the edge of' the v alley, where we arrive at the forbidding grey flat, level as a-bil .ard--table, save where here and there an encrustation of soda in some form permitted the foot of man or beast to break through this slim crust. Our route lay directly across the sterile desert, and before us ran vhggon tracks that were made by miners and adventurers who came to the sil;er-mincs of Paramint. Old Tex, our guide, said that one could see on that desert waste the tracks ofLthe waggons owned by the early emigrants, of whom a number per ished for want of water in the years 18 i-50. When about seven miles out on the desert we came across the bones o .three oxen; cracked, worn, and weather-beaten, and three spokes near them. 'A little further away lay ...

QUEENSLAND'S PEARLING GROUNDS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 21 November 1914

QUEENSLAND'S PEARLING GROUNDS. The pearl fisheries of Northern Aus tralia are the most lucrative and the least understood of the world's fisheries. The pearling grounds, as they are termed locally, extend along the north-east and northern coasts of Queensland. In years gone by, diving was mostly carried' on by naked divers in comparatively shal Low waters, but the use of the diving dress is now almost universal. The profits of pearling are enormous. The wages of the divers range from £1 to £2 per. month, and a "lay" of £20 on each ton of shell, lifted. The diver's tender is paid £4 per month, and the four members of the crew, 30/ to £2 10/. per month. These are the wages the men sign articles at, but comparatively little money is paid, as the crews more often than not "cut out" their wages in "slop chest," viz., goods purchased from the master-pearler, who makes more than 150 per cent. clear profit from this part of the business alone. The pearling boats are worked from a schooner, ...

MARRIAGE CUSTOMS IN HOLLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 21 November 1914

MARRIAGE GUSTOMS IN HOLLAND. ------+-- A curious old custom still exists in many provinces of Holland. If a young man is in love with a girl, and wishes to ask her hand in mar riage, he goes about it in the follow ing manner. He buys a small sweet cake, and, wrapping it up in soft paper, proceeds to the house of his inamorata; upon his arrival, he is ushered into the midst of the family circle; without a word, he walks up to the young lady he wishes to make his wife, and lays the cake on the table before her. The rest of the family affect not to notice anything unusual, and continue their work, or their reading. The young man turns aside and talks to the father or mother on some very ordinary sub ject, keeping his eyes eagerly fixed on the girl's face while he is conversing. If she accepts his offer, she takes up the cake and eats it. Sometimes. though Dutch, she is coquettish, and tortures the young man by turning it over and playing with it, before she decides to bite it, and then...

SCIENCE NOTES. Developments in Electrical Research. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 21 November 1914

SCIENCE NOTES. Developments in Electrica Research. It has long been conceded that elee. tricity offers a wider field for the ambi tious student than any other, liut even the wildest flights of fancy never reached to such heights as reality shows us in some of the latest discoveries. It is said that we are to have electric power without circuits, and that storage batteries, trolleys and all of the most ap. proved appliances will be reconstructed .out of existence. Under the new condi tions a couple of thousand volts passed though the human frame will be esteemed a pleasant sensation; whereas, at pre, sent, two thousand will kill at a flash. The wildest dreams of .the extremist alchemist fade into insignificance by the side of the possibilities that now now loom-up ahead of us. We are to put our heads in contact with certain appliances and-presto! our thoughts are recorded upon paper or - transmitted to r friendas

Sunday Corner. Doing Impossible Things. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 21 November 1914

Sunday Corner. ..-- Doing Impossible Things. When God calls us to any ser vice or task or duty whatsoever, no supposed personal incapacity, in competency, or insufficiency may ever be urged as a reason for not obeying. God never really bids us do a thing we cannot d6, and do well with His help, He would not mock us with an unreasonable re quirement. The achieving of im possible commands, of course, is not our business at all. We have noth ing whatever to do with the impos-' sible part; that belongs to God. But we have everything to do with the obeying of the command that comes to us. It is n Oours to re ason, to demur, to urge inability; it is ours promptly, unquestioningly to obey, and then as we go forward God will divide the water or cleave the mountain or roll away the stone. As we approach the obstacle, going.in holy obedience, j we. shall- find the way open- for our feet. -.

-HOW DESERTSE ARE FORMED.: There is a popular idea that deserts like, the:. Sahara are the bottoms o? ancient seas which have been lifted above their original elevation by geological forces. This notion is, art erroneons one. It is absolutely cer tain, high authorities contend, that_ the sands of all the great deserts have been: formed on the spot by the disintegration of the solid rocks onx which they rest. Desert sands cor respond in all respects, so far asa their mode of origin is concerned, tc, the dust and sand that accumulates on our high roads in summer. All deserts are situated where the winds from the ocean, before reaching them are exhausted of their moisture by passing over mountains or across eit teastve tracts of land.
