A Monster of the Deep. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 26 June 1914

A Monster of the Deep. crcaturc of the submarine world is tho giant octopus, commonly known as tho spider-crab. It is master of the sealed and finned things that li\o in the ocean's depths. It is alike hideous in appearance and habits, and more than one daring coral hunter and pearl-diver has found death in its terrible arms. Tho spicicr-crab flourishes and at tains its greatest size in the warm waters of the Japan seas. An adequate idea of the hideousness of the creature's appearance can only be formed by those who have come across tho monster in its lair. Its shnpe bears a strong resemblance to tho familiar spinning insect. The long legs, which often exceed forty feet in length, are thickly covered with coarse black hair. Tim body, often fifteen feet in cir cumference, is also covered with hair, in which barnacles and tiny shellfish make their home. "When attacked, tho spider-crab exudes an overpowering odour, which permea tes the water around it, and the creature lushes its long ...

It is cheap and you can afford to throw it away when dirty, thereby saving time and washing.

Did Ancient Greeks Dance The Cakewalk ? 4 Can wo, in these modern days, claim originality for anything V It seems not, for even our "cake |walk," which most people think was [invented in rceent years, is now proved to have been familiar to the ancients. In the British Museum ran be seen a (Jreekj statuette of a lady who. lived 12-100 years ago in an attitude \vhidi seems strangely familiar. "I enjoyed your sermon this morn ing very much," .said Mark Twain to a clergyman of his acquaintance. "1 welcomed it like an old friend. 1 have, you know, a book at home containing every word of it." "Von have not," .said the j>rca* cher. "1 have, indeed," returned the humourist. "Well, semi that hook to me. I'd like to see it." "Vou shall." ,Mark Twain replied.
