Silence for a minute—then small voice at back of the schoolroom— Bulrushes, ma'am. "So you are engaged to Tom?" "Yes." "My dear, I congratulate you. Tom is the nicest fiance I ever had." "What is going on?" asked the terrified stranger in Central America. "Revolution," replied the man in the uniform. "Who is the leader of the rebels?" "Don't know yet. That's what this fight is about." "Yes, sir," said Dobbleigh, "horses are ruining my brother Tom. He's crazy about them. Just paid twelve hundred pounds for a pair of trot ters."

THE LADIES' COLUMN PHILOSOPHY OF FURNITURE. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 30 May 1914

THE LADIES' COLUMN PHILOSOPHY OF FURNITURE. Anybody with money in hand can select and purchase furniture, and any hands can place said furniture around the four walls of a parlor, boudoir, or bedroom; but there is furniture and furniture, furnishing and furnishing, and therein lies the philosophy we write of; not that inanimate wood has this of itself, but the maker of each piece of furniture, be it of sim ple pine or walnut, the old-time ma hogany, or the much-prized oaken fur niture of today, has wrought into it, with each planing and chiselling, each twist and curve, the mind of the mas ter who controls its shapeliness; as hi eye is artistic and delights itself in the beautiful, so he wills the block of raw material shall acquire a like symmetry and chasteness. Yet, granted all this prepared in or der for the purchaser, the household er is not by this assured a tastefully furnished home. A taste to fashion is one thing, and a taste to select and arrange another. The buyer should ...

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 30 May 1914

The public like good value for their money and you can't blame 'em seeing how hard most of 'em have to work to earn it. My customers are wonderfully keen judges of groceries, both as regards quality and prices, especially tea. The best selling line I have in the shop is R o b u r — there's the No. 1 and the No. 2 Grades and you can't go wrong in selling either. If every article in my stock turned out as uniformly good and regularly up to the standard as R o b u r tea—I'd be saved a lot of worry 1 can tell you. Naturally 1 keep a good many other brands of tea on my shelves, but only one customer here and there ever seems to care to take 'em, whereas, I've hardly ever heard of anyone refusing to take " R O B U R." Of course I'd rather sell niy own tea, but when 1 can't, well, then 1 don't mind selling Robur —there's not much made out of it, but it gives satisfaction and that's the main thing. Can I sell you a pound 7 v Tug Grocer. 9<S/&&'SG/5& ^ i. j...

LORD STRATHCONA AND THE "WHITE WASH." [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 30 May 1914

LORD STRATHCONA AND THE "WHITE WASH." From the time lie emigrated to Can ada, at the age of eighteen, until he was forty-eight, the late Lord Strath cona spent all his time at various posts of the Hudson Bay Company, newly located on the Labrador. In all those thirty years among the northern Indians and the Eskimos, Donald Smith, as lie then was, held li'inself strictly to the niceties of life; so that when, as a man of middle age, lie returned to civilised life and the highest office in the gift of the Hud son Bay Company, there were no rough edges of either speech or nian ! ner to 'he overcome. Nothing shows this better than a story told on the Labrador while he was governor of the company. It is a rule of the Hudson Bay Company that no woman shall 'be allowed pass age on its boats. One day, as a steam er of the company neared one of the northernmost ports, a string of white garments was seen stretched across deck. The' watchers were amazed; for to them the wash-line suggested amy...

A REAL WOMAN-HATER. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 30 May 1914

A REAL WOMAN-HATER. Carrying to his grave au antipathy for the fair sex which characterised his long life of single blessedness, William H. Hartley, a ■wealthy farmer, who recently died at the age of seven ty-three, prorided in his will for the erection of a monument upon which shall be in imperishable lettering hlfl preference for bachelorhood. After directing that a granite monument be placed over his grave, on which shall be carved an old bachelor standing on the brink of Jordan, preparing to cross the river, with a group of old maids on the other aide, each beckon ing to him, he requested that the fol lowing epitaph be engraved om the monument: 'To an independe t, good-looking old bachelor, who in his younger days preferred living ii single life than get married and have a petticoat boss ruling over him." Many people fail to realise that the stomach is an organ that is capable of abuse. The majority of people eat too much, and many people would 'be far better healthwise and fitt...

CHAPTER XIX. The Ship Comes to Port. I. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 30 May 1914

CHAPTER XIX. The Ship Comes to Port. I. Hugh had a vague idea as to Mat Michel's reason for their voyage to Ohfirhoure: bnfc it was varv indofinil.fi and the philosopher 110 longer spolc? about it. A brusque "Ye shall knov when the time comes," was the best that could be got out of him, and even George Hedges, with a prime clerical faculty of interrogation", did next to nothing with such a secret oracle. Mat feared to disappoint his friends and held his tongue. The only person on board who seemed to un derstand him was Madame Adele. Cintra, all said and done, lia'd been but a house of captivity to her. 4 neurotic dream of love, dreamed by one who was doomed to die, had giv en place speedily to the darker hour when she had come to understand tin tragic jest which Fate had planned for her. Taken from her home as by magic, now she turned wistful eyes to France again, desiring the little house by the railway, and the friends to'whom she was flesh and blood and not the Madonna of a pictu...

III. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 30 May 1914

III. St. Denys was tlie most amazed man in Suffolk when his sister told liim to have his clothes packed and to take himself off from Datton. He really thought that a usually clever woman was losing her wits. "What, Minnie, but you said your self that it was doing me a devilish lot of good, now, didn't you?" "You are certainly better for a few days of sobriety, Desmond . . . I think if you continue, that you may live some years longer. But I cannot j have you here next week; I am ex- | pecting guests." | "Quests—good God—aren't I a guest? Do you turn me 'out for strangers, Minnie?" | "Exactly what I am proposing to do ... in very plain words, Desmond. When it is convenient, I will send for you again." The man pulled fiercely at his auburn moustache, and seemed quite crushed by .the indignity. "In that case," he said, with a vain seeking after the majestic, "in that case, I talie the kid—you'll see if I don't." Her ladyship raised her eyes and merely looked at him—he knew that glance ...

II. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 30 May 1914

II. Patty liad gone to Brighton after the great misfortune, and she had the tidings there. When they told her that she had become a rich wo man—one of the richest in the coun try—she gave way to hysterical tears, and seemed to insinuate that Heres ford had done her a wrong in dying at all. The lie which she had told about the journey to New York should have been repeated by him on his deathbed out of simple loyalty to a woman. After all there had been no wrong, and why should not he have done it? A woman's logic could not understand. Patty had cried for two days after Leila went to prison. ! Frequent quarrels with her landlady and dramatic outbursts, in which she .declared that she would tear down the prison walls with her own "poor lingers," varied the monotony of tears and did her health much good. A promise to go immediately to see her "dearest darling" whom a villain had sent to gaol was not fulfilled, partly because Leila herself hated scenes and did not wish it; partly be caus...

LEILA AND HER LOVER Published by Arrangement with Ward. Lock and Co. Ltd., Lond. and Melb (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER XVIII. Three in England. I. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 30 May 1914

LEILA AND HER LOVER By MAX PEMBERTON. Published by Arrangement with Ward. Lock and Co. Ltd., Lond. and Melb (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER XVIII. Three in England. I. juesay sent Leila a great bunch of j red roses and a misspelled letter from ! Datton. That was just five days after Heresford's death, and a postscrip turn in Geraldine's handwriting told her of the momentous event. "It may make a great deal of difference," Ger-, aldine said in her prosaic way—but Leila thought first of the flower; which the child had gathered. Roses, red roses—how few of theii leaves had been scattered in her path! She remembered the Mourne Mountains and the lonely garden and the cottage wherein the lad's voice had been heard. Here in her cell, she heard no bruit of the woi'ltl save that which came from the streets afar. The women who told her what to do were so many automata, without heart, and as it would seem without humanity. The man who loved her was across the seas—she thought sometimes that he ...

Karkarooc Shire Drainage (TO THE EDITOR OF THE RAINBOW ARGUS) [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 30 May 1914

Karkarooc Shire Drainage (TO THE EDITOK OF THE RAINBOW ARGUS) fcSiu,—Un perusing the report of the Karkarooc Shire Council meet ing which appeared in the last issue of your journal, I read that the engineer (who, in the company of Or. Raggatt, had previously paid a visit of inspection to the spot) strongly recommended that the Shire Council go in for a drainago scheme in connection with their portion of the town of Rainbow, independent of the Dim boola Shire's rocent proposal. The report went on to state that two dams, owned by Mr. J. Dart, could be obtained for that purpose, but it did not say that these dams were situated practically on a main thoroughfare in almost the centre of the town. Now, Sir, is it not a fact that the drainage of Rainbow was some time ago prevented from running into the dams in question by the health authorities on the ground that it was a menace to the health of the communitv. Surelv there must be something behind the "scenes" when the council, in face of ...

Defence of the Commonwealth [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 30 May 1914

Defence of the Common** wealth General Hamilton's report on j the military forces of the Common wealth shows that in the matter of defence there is much for the Liberal Ministry to do. When in office the Labor Party displayed a praiseworthy desire to lay the foundations of an army and of a navy, which should make Australia safe from foreign attack. But, so much said, it has been frankly pointed out that much of General Hamilton's report is a condemna tion of past business methods,- a plea for wiser administration in the future. The General insists that Aus tralia's army must have a business branch under a comptroller with a quarter-master general as second in command. It would be amongst the duties of this branch to watch expenditure closely, to see that Commonwealth thousands go whero need is greatest, not necessarily where demand is most urgent. Ifc would have to decentralise, to establish a pension scheme, to bring about closer co-operation between the defence and other ' departm...
