Confessions of a Coiner. SOME THRILLS IN THE GAME. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 24 July 1914
Confessions of a Coiner. SOMK TH1ULL3 IN" THE UAMIC. Every coiner bocotncg a convict* Put thnt down as Absolut© certain. I'ye just dono my five years' penal. You're certain to be lagged. The game isn't worth the candle, and I've done with it. The profits nre enormous, but so are the risks. Forty pounds a week 2 made /or two months* Easy conn', easy go. And then five years inside the big gates ! Never ngain. | How did I make my coins ? I'll j tell you something-but not nll-l about it. I don't want you to try the game on. You might h«v# a short or a long rim, but as sure as night follows day, you'd find your self in the dock. The first requisite is a coin of an old dale, but not worn. I've given ten shillings-good ones-for a half crown that had been lying in a (/rawer for a dozen years. 1 gave a woumji the same amount-in bad money-for a coin mounted as a brooch. Coiners never make new coins. Tradesmen will look suspi ciously at a genuine new five-shil ling piece, but n counterfeit, da...

The latest form of tor pedo, guided by an instrument called a gyroscope, travels at a rate of thirty knots, -"Ireland's Own." "Do yo" think Skinner can make a. living out there?" "Make a living ! Why,, he'd make a living on a rock in the middle ot the ocean if there was another man on the rock."

THE FARM AND DAIRY. THE COMPOSITION OF CHEESE IN RELATION TO QUALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 24 July 1914
THE FARM AND DAIRY. THE COMPOSITION OF 0HBE3H IN RELATION TO QUALITY. In a report of the New York Dairymen's Association for 1891, we find the following statement in an address given by Dr. Robertson "In every case there was a gradual reduction in thfl quality of chceae when there was a less quantity of butter-fat in milk. . . . However, this is true also that the increased yield of cheese is not in direct pro portion to the increased percentage of butter-fat ; that is, milk contain ing 3 per cent of butter-fat will yield a certain quantity of cheese, but if you take milk having one third more fat (4 per ccnt.) it will not yield one-third more cheese. At the same time, such milk is worth one-third more for cheesemaking, an>! thereby hangs a tale, you see,, if it does not yield so much cheese, it yields a quality of cheese so much better that the market value of th"? cheese from 100 lb. of milk is a thirl creator than the market value of the cheese in the other case ? "Every two-t...
Agricultural Notes and Queries STOCK RAISING PROBLEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 24 July 1914
Agricultural Notes and Queries (BYGLKANBB) STOCK -RAISING FRONT.KM -i. The remarkable advance in prices for sheep and cattlo should lend Aus triilmi) stock owners to give clos' attention to several pressing problems in connection with I lie Btock raising industry. It is regrettnhlo to note, fjr instance, that the wider Beld (or the deve'opmenfc of the Australian slock raising indurtry, which the new range in world prices for meat products has opened up, oannot bo taken full ad vantage of, udICBS the breeding stock is kept up. The customary practice of killing many of tho calvfs in the dairy herds, and of exporting such large numbers of ewe limbs will hive to be restricted. In regard to the hitter, there has been some loose talk ii'wb' the necessity of an export duty to reduce or prevent the export of ewe lambs. This is just as absurd as some of the wild talk about tho iniquity of the American beef trust in entering into tho Australian meat trade. The Americans have come to Queenslan...

DIPPING THE FLAG. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 24 July 1914
DIPPING THE FLAG. The salutation given when a vessel' lowers or "dips" its flag is one ol the oldest and most honourable of all forms of marine greeting. I This form of salute has always been demanded by English-speaking i seamen, and its exaction has warmed ' tip the hearts and used tip the pow- I der of generations of naval comman-' dcrs. ( In the old days, for a foreign ship, whether merchant or naval, to enter an English port without veiling top- ; sails or clipping its national flag ' was to run the risk of war, although the profoundest peace existed. Without, warning or argument, the shore defences of a man-of-war would send a round shot across the bows or between the masts of the foreign er, and if the offending flag did not instantly come down the insolent in truder was brought to her senses by being raked through and through. Such was the reception accorded bv Sir John Hawkins in the sixteenth century to the Spanish admiral who, in time ot peace, sailed into Ports mouth Sou...

CHAPTER XI. STILL THE DEVIL'S OWN . DARLING. The sun was shining brightly the next morning when Mr. Hetherington | passed out of the park gates on his way to see Dr. Kitzpatrick. This ? time he (lid not choose the little | door in the wall, feeling it was more | prudent to give it a.wide berth. | Before he had gone many yards he heard the sound of wheels, and, look I ing round, he saw the doctor's dog - cart, , with tlio doctor in it, coming towards him. j Mr. Hetherington paused, and when the dogcart came alongside of him, the doctor pulled up. I "I was coming to see' you about a ' temporary hospital for the fever ' cases," ,said Mr. Hetherington. | "All right. I'll get out and wal&lt;c with you as far. as my house." the j doctor said, flinging the reins to his groom, and telling him to drive on; then, as he joined the other man, he | sniil : "Have you heard that Mr. Oarvill's sister-in-law, Mrs. Wedmorc, has been assaulted and seriously injured, Mr. Hetherington ?"

BEYOND PARDON. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 24 July 1914
BEYOND PARDON. An individual describing himself vi a professional poet was summoned to a police court t&lt;j answer the charge cl assaulting a local compositor. He ad mitted the assault, but excitedly pleaded great provocation. "My writing isn't exactly copper plate, your worship," he said,"but my j>oems are serious ones, and when 1 see them turned into material for the joke column by that stupid composi tor's monkey tricks, it makes me wild." "But you needn't have split his head open in your excitement," remonstrat ed the magistrate. "Needn't I, your worship? Hear mc ou'i, and then you'll perhaps think dif ferently. I wrote a poem the othei day about a dying boy, which finished off with the following pathetic lines: "'He lay upon the grass with up turned face, And playful zephyrs frolicked o'ei his head.' ' ' "But that fool of a compositor pre tended he couldn't read the word 'zephyr.?.' and set up the last line ir this fashion: "'And play ful zebras frolicked o'ei his h...
BOYS WILL BE BOYS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 24 July 1914
BOYS "WILL BE BOYS. Boys will be boys, well, BO 'tis said, By those who ought to know, But if they're rightly clothed and fed, Soon into men they'll grow; SVill they be bravo, and true and kind, And fight on every hand Each Giant Foe that they may find Go stalking through the JandP So many boys think they are men ; They drink, and smoke, and swear, And try to be like father, when He's drinking ale or beer; No kindly word, nor helpful act, Nor cheerful smile have they; What I have said is fimple fact, One sees it every day. Boys, please be boys, and act like boys, There's lots of work for you, Twill add to all your other joys: If noble deeds you do. Strive to excel in all good work, Spread happiness around, And never for a moment shirk The duties you have found. Then you will grow to stalwart men Of types the very best, The battle fought, the victory won, Will give you perfect rest; And when in after years you look Back o'er the sands of time, You'll not regret the step you took, Whe...

" Shure. an' if I get £8 the head I'll not dc badly." replied Pat. "Ah," said th( politician, "that's a sample of . youi country. Now if you wero enterprising enough to take these heifers to Eng land you would average £14 a head al least." "Just so, ver honour," said the ^1,-ovor simply, "and av ye tuk the Lakes of Killarney to purgatory yez get a guinea the dhrop," It often happens that the very people most particular respecting their own things are most wanton in their disre gard, of the property of others.
