TIPSY BIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 29 August 1914
TIPSY BIRDS. -i A heavy dray, loaded h'igh' with kegs of liquor, was. jolting across a tramway line near the Elephant r.n I Castle, when one' of the kegs toppled and fell from the top of the pile in to the street. This happened in the summer. It was thoroughly smashed, so the drayman whipped up his team and went his way without stopping. The rum flowed out over the street one little dent in the paving collect ing a visible puddle of it. In' a few minutes a pigeon came fluttering down toi drink at the pool thus fortunately provided for thirsty! birds. The initial taste was a sur prise, but a second and a third soon followed, and soon the . pigeon tottered fluttering away, too over come to fly. Other birds, seeing him there, and anxious to wet their parching throats on so sultry a day, followed their brother In his wicked intemperance. Five minutes later a passer-by was astonished to see a dozen pigeons in the gutter of the otherwise deserted street, some dancing drunkenly, others alr...

HEROES ON SEA AND LAND. HOW FIREMAN SAFFERY WOtf THE Ii.C.C. MEDAL FOR BRAVERY. It was a mild November night, a neighbouring clock had just tolled one and Bermondsey Street was asleep. All was silent in that grave, dreary thoroughfare; in the houses that lined it lay weary women and toil strained men in slumber, at rest lor a few hours from the labour that brought them their daily bread. Over one house, whilst its inhabi tants slept,- spread the shadow of danger and death i from one of its lower windowB was issuing a thin streak of smoke that rose upwards almost in a straight line in the damp night air unruffled by the faintest breath of wind. Upstairs on the top floor a man lay tossing and moaning in nls sle«p as il some un seen power were trying to warn him of the danger that menaced him and all in his house. Presently he awoke with a start, and sat up m bed, ana then in an instant he had bundled on his clothcs, and in another mo ment his voice was ringing through the houss waking...

That Roused Him. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 29 August 1914
That Roused Him. THeUjoj^M eyes were closed, and all attempts to rouse him were ineffec tual. The physician had watched by the bedside for half-an-hour without success, and finally announced that the only hope ,of saving his life was to rouse him 'from his stupor. "Cannot some of you induce .him to make some exertion?" he asked. "We can do nothing unless we can make him do something for himseir." Then the -boy's mother went to the bedside and pleaded with him to. rouse himself for her sake, but there was .not even a motion of the muscles of the face to show that he heard. She told him how much she would do for him, and what nice times they would have when he got well, but he did not stir. The father spoke of buying him a pony and a, little shot-gun, but he did not seem to understand. ~ Even the mention of a circus and a. pantomime massed unheeded, and he gave lip In lespair. ? Then the' sick boy's little brother ;rept to the bedside; and said softly: "Eddie, the people who lived in ...

SOMETHING ABOUT BACTERIA. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 29 August 1914
SOMETHING ABOUT BACTERI*. We hear go much nowadays about the activity,; beneficent or otherwise; of bacteria, that a little information about them and their habits will in terest many of our readers. . Bacteria are unicellular organismB, the most lowly-organised members of the vegetable kingdom. The word unicellular may be more fully explain ed. Everything living, animal or vege table, is made up of cells or the pro ducts of cells-just as a bric& wall is made up of individual bricks. As the brick is the structural unit of the wall, so is the cell the physiological unit of the living structure. The difference between the cells of highly-organised^ animals and those of unicellular crea tures is that, in the former case dif ferent groups of cells take on; special functions, one group digestion, an other sensation, etc., while obviously the single cell, of which the unicellu lar creature Is composed, has itself tc carry out .all' the functions necessary to its existence. Bacteri...

IN COMMAND. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 29 August 1914
'IN COMMAND. The Turkish navy appears to be in the main an obsolete fighting ma chine. Probably, however, it is bet-. ter officered than half a century ago. | When Lord Carlisle visited Constan tinople in 1854 he met a Turkish "admiral whose ignorance of navfd matters was equalled only by his horror of the sea. , If he went for a . cruise he was invariably sea-sick. On one occasion, when prostrated in his cabin, hearing a noise which grated on his nerves, he inquired whence it proceeded. "Prom the rudder of the ship," was the reply. "Then have the rudder removed im mediately," ordered the afflicted ad- j miral. There are fifteen officials of the Royal Household who receive wages ranging Inn £702 to £2.000. /
CRIMES COMMITTED FOR CHARITY. BENEVOLENT ROGUES. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 29 August 1914
CRIMES COMMITTED FOR CHARITY. -? BENEVOLENT ROGUES. That a man should set himself to embezzle twenty-six thousand pounds live in such a frugal manner that the dined ofl bread and cheese in a dark corner of the Exchange, and devote the entire amount to charity, ap pears at first sight almost in:om prehensible. Yet such were the facts recently brought to "light at the trial of a London manager ' of ' a wealthy New York firm, who was proved to have defrauded his em ployers of this large sum in order to provide funds for a mission in which he was interested. This . was his sole object in perpetrating the fraud.*: Such' instances of crimes commit ted for charity are by no means so uncommon as people mighty imagine. One of the most remarkable cases was that of Sister Candide, a mem ber of the religious order of the Sis ters of . Charity, who was known thrqughout the whole 'of;France for her good works, . and was eventually arrested in Paris ;on a scn~atidnaV charge. .. It . was alleged th...
