STONE AGE CEMETERY. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 14 August 1914
STONE AGE CEMETERY. .Ail important discovory is an nounced in the shape of a burial place of the Stone Age which has just been found by Professor Pall Osso, of Ancona, in the Valle Vi brata, in the Abruzzi, Central Italy. The bodies are not buried, but are all laid in small cabins containing from two to eight each, and are ranged on both sides of these little huts on low platforms sloping to wards the centre. With one excep tion the bodies all rest on one side with the knees drawn up, and il. is assumed that the dead were placed in this position to give them the attitude of prayer in their death chamber, for it has been establish ed that the custom of praying on one's knees was already in exist ence in the Stone Age in Egypt. "Mother," said little Mabel, " do missionaries go t.o heaven ?" "Why. 01 course, dear," her mothor replied. "Ho cannibals ?" "No, 1 am n/raid they don't." "But, mother," the little girl in sisted, "if a cannibal oats a mis sionary, he'll have to g&lt;t,...

What M's.P. Earn. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 14 August 1914
What IW's.P. Earn. ? Italy and Spain are the only European countries which offer no monetary reward to their members of Parliament. The Portuguese legislators are not "remunerated by the State, but they have a free pass for travelling on > 11 railways in the country, and their consti tuencies are permitted to pay a sum equivalent to 15s. for each day's sitting. Denmark is another country which believes that its political gentle men are ready to work for al most nothing. Members of Parlia ment there only receive 6s. per day, but they have the peculiar pri vilege of a free seat in the Royal Theatre of Copenhagen. The Norweigan honourable mem ber is thankful for a daily in come of 12s., though he must do his duty properly to get it. He loses a day's pay when he takes a day off. Members of the Swiss Diet work under the same threat. If they are absent they lose salary which amounts in their case to 16s. per day. Roumania pays her law makers a sovereign per day, and Bulgaria of fers 16...

Ladies' Column. SOME GOOD RECIPES. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 14 August 1914
.3 SOPJE GOOD RECIPES. If, when making boiled starch, a piece of soap is left in, it will be found during tho ironing process that not only will the iron slip along easily, but a beautiful glossy efTect will be produced. The most difficult of all stains to take out are those made by cof fee. With care, however, the stain can be removed from tho most delicate silk or woollen fabrics.. Rub the mark gently with a little pure glycerine, then rinse it in lukewarm water, lay a cloth over the damp part on the wrong side, and press with a cool iron until dry. Do not wet, more of the ma terial than is absolutely necessary. To ascertain whether a room is damp or not, place a weighed quantity of fresh lime in an open vessel in the room and leave it there for twenty-four hours, care fully closing the windows and doors. At,the end of the twenty ; four hours re-weigh, the lime, and : if the increase exceeds one per cent, of the original weight it is not safe to live in the room. To wash woollen s...

COST OF BAD TEMPER. 7 "By getting into a rage the work of the heart may be increased from 3 52 to 224 foot-pounds per minute. Keep your temper is, therefore, good advice.-' This was one of the re marks made bv Mr. J. Strickland Goodal! in his lecture on "Heart Strain and its Prevention," at the Institute of Hygiene recently. He further remarked that if you go to bed at ten o'clock instead of 12 you will save your heart in the course of a year 876,000 foot pounds of work, while an hour's rest on Sunday afternoon will save the heart 02,400 foot-pounds of work per annum. Wife : "Why, husband, I thought you had more sanse thun to buy a cornot. You know the fellow next door worries us nearly to death with his." Husband :,"Caim yourself,^nty dear. That's the one I bought."
Searchlight Revolver. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 21 August 1914
Searchlight Revolver. The average householder is sel dom a good mavksnmn and yet at any time he is liable to havo to cope with an intruder who is an expert with firearms. Hence, it is I quite essential that he ho provided with something to overcome his handicap. The burglar usually has the advantage in Knowing live gen eral direction from which the man of the house will npproach, whereas in looking- for the intruder one Searchlight Revolver,, i never knows in what particular n.>ok he may be hiding. Revolvers pro vided with flash lamps hiwe keen invented which enable a man t-> light \up a dark roi'ji suddinly and discover any intruder, t-ut such a revolver places one at the mercy of the. thief, while the light is wavering about the room in search of him. To take aim, the house holder must bring his eye into alignment with the revolver, so that the thief has. but to - fire at the source of light to bo sure of get ting his man. , , An improvement on that form of revolver has rece...
Ocean Fliers, STORY OF THE CHINA CLIPPERS [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 21 August 1914
Ocean Fliers, * STORY OF THE CHINA CLIPPERS In the "Times" Literary Supple ment is an extremely interesting ar ticle reviewing Mr. Basil Lubbock's book on "The China Clippers." It is no accident (says the writer of the review) that the ocean clipper owed its very origin to the compe tition for fortunes in the illicit opium trade to China, in the thir ties and forties of last centnry ; a business which was nothing less than the armed and piratical smug gling of a noxious drug into a country whose rulers forbade, but were too weak to resist, its intro duction. The coolie traffic, too," was a disreputable business. It is only when \y*e come to. the gold rush to 'Frisco and the clean trade of the fifties and sixties that fascination at the brilliant qualities and achievements of the clipper overcomes disgust at the iniquities associated with the name. Then indeed the story becomes en thralling. At first the Americans were supreme, their designers, Hall, Webb, and the famous Donald Mac~ ...
L S. D. OF AVIATION. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 21 August 1914
L S. D. OF AVIATfOfli. ^ lhe day when the well-to-do City man will use an aeroplane on his daily journeys bet.wocn his home aitd his uihee, and £.150 will purchase an efficient machine, is foreshadowed by Mr. Gustav H am el and Mr. Charles 0. Turner in their inter esting book, "t'tying-Some Practi cal Experiences." Ii.ven now lining' is not prohibi tively expensive, apart from the original expense of £-100 to JCl.SOO for the aeroplane itself. The coat of flying, according- to the authors, is made up of the "capital expen diture upon the machine, the cost or rental of a shed, repairs and renewal of parts, fuel, and the wages of one or raore mechanics. The price of a machine may be any thing from £400 to £1,500. Tak ing the engine most generally in use at the time of writing-name ly, the Gnome-the aviator may buy a single-seater machine with a 50 horse-power motor for about £700, or a two-seater machine with an SO-horse-power motor for £1,000.

Studied Politeness. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 21 August 1914
Studied Politeness. Atlantic captains iY the older school were a hardened and humor ous lot of navigators, and many a story of their eccentricities sur vives them. One in particular is of an old cap tain seeing the terror of the juti ior officer during that nervous or j deal of treading the bridge for the first time with him. This pnrticu i lar old salt, after a painful «ri j lence, turned to the young man and said, "I like you ; in fa^t, my dear sir, I should like to have your photograph.

CHAPTER XX. LOOKING BACKWARDS. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 21 August 1914
CHAPTER XX. LOOKING BACKWARDS. Joshua Hetherington sat, to all appearances, composed and quiet. In reality lie was simply, wild with ap prehension. "The strongest piece of evidence against your nephew is that fact that a dagger, such as would have inflict ed the ground that killed the doctor, was in his possession at the time of the murder. It seems the housemaid at Mount House is engaged to the village constable, and when they were discussing the murder, she told him that Mr. Jack had a dagger in his room, and she, at her lover's re quest, handed it to him. Then of course, there were the threatening words he used. But personally I do not believe him guilty," he said. "You are rignt ; he is innocent. Dr. Fitzpatrick may have had enemies, i bitter enemies, who had even greater | reason to wish him out of the way than Jack had. You knew him in timately : do you know of any such person ?" she asked, fixing her eyes keenly on him. "No, but it is possible he had an ' enemy, as you sugges...

CHAPTER XIX. BROUGHT BACK. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 21 August 1914
CHAPTER XIX. BROUGHT BACK. "Call Margaret Wedmore." As the name fell on his ears Josh Hetherington started and looked round in time to see her enter, and he was struck afresh by, her loveli ness and grace, which was not mar red by the sad expression her face wore. As he looked he scarcely mar velled that the dead man had loved her, rather than his richly-dowered daughter. "Miss Wedmore, is it true that the dead man asked you to be his wife on the afternoon previous to his death, when he was on the eve of marriage with another lady ?" "It is quite true, and I thought he must have been out of his mind, or he would never have spoken such words. Indeed, when I heard that he had died a violent death, I came to the conclusion that he had commit ted suicide while out of his mind," she said, speaking in a clear, dis tinct tone. The coroner shook his head. "A man cannot stab himself in the back. And now, Miss Wedmore, I want you to tell us about this quar rel between your cousin and the de c...
