A Smart Boy. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 5 July 1906
A Smart Boy, An inspector was examining some boys, and gave one the following sentence to parse: "Hark? How the lark sings!" When he reached the noun, th© inspector stopped him and said., "You're wrong, you said masculine gender." "Yes," replied the boy. "Well, it's not," returned the inspector, "i thought you would have known 'lark' was common gender." "Common gender?" said the boy contemptuously. ' That shows you don't know nothink about birds, sii. It'a only the cock wot sings."

WOMAN'S WORLD. ONLY A WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 5 July 1906
WOMAN'S WORLDr ONLY A WOMAN. . Only a woman! Think of it quietly for a minute or two. Is a woman so bad a thing after all? Is it so worth ] less to be "only a woman"? A. woman is .surely more graceful tfian a man,, with daintier ways and finer belong- i ings; slie is a creature wlio, with tact, makes pleasant chatter and merry laughter; she Is something that men couldn't do without if they wanted to. Sho is the one who is closest to a man in his sorrow or in his joy, and when a man is overwhelmingly happy because he has succeeded in something, be wants a woman to congratulate him. He doesn't care whether that woman knows anything about mechanics. In fact, he would much rather she didn't. The knowledge of Greek doesn't surely teach one how to make one's home bright and those in it happy. Greek, Latin and mechanics, all may be good to know, but there are some things surely which are so much better. To know how to forgive, to forget, and to remember are greater a thou sand times. To kn...

Tiiei'e lias been a peculiar development in the working of the Cattle Sales act which shows that the law can. be evaded. The present law requires that in the sale of cattle or horses tUe vendor must produce a certificate from some reputable person when the money is handed over stating that be is tbe owner of tbe, ■ .animal. A case occurred recently in Ballarat in which a stolen beast was ' sold, and it transpired that no certificate had been produced, The licensed auctioneer was prosecuted, but he was proved to be the employe of the selling firm, Messrs. Coles and Pull am, and as the money was not paid to him, but to a member of the firm, he could' not be responsible for calling for the production of the certificate. The magistrates came to this decision, and an order for review was refused, Mr.. Justice Cusstm holding that the magistrates were correct. The chief Secretary then took counsel's opinion as to whether the firm could be prosecuted, and was advised that they could not. Si...

IN "MOTHER'S ROOM." [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 5 July 1906
IN "MOTHER'S ROOM." I'm awfully sorry for poor Jack Roe; He's the boy that lives with his aunt, you know; And. he says his house is filled with gloom, Because it has got no "mother's room." I tell you what, it is fine enough To talk of "boudoirs" and such fancy stuff. But the room of rooms that seems best to me, The room where I'd always rather be, Is mother's room, where a fellow can And talk of the things his heart loves best. What if I do get dirt about, And sometimes startle my aunt with a shout? It is mother's room, and if she don't mind. To the hints of others I'm always blind. Maybe 1 lose my things—what then? In mother's room I find them again. And I've never denied that I litter the With marbles and tops and many things more; But I tell you, for boys with a tired head. It is jolly to rest on mother's bed. Now, poor Jack Roe, when he visits I take him to mother's room, you see, Because it's the nicest place to go When a fellow's spirits are getting low. And mother, she's alw...

CHAPTER XVI. "My Child is the Heiress of Heathdale!: [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 5 July 1906
CHAPTER XVI. "My Child Is the Heiress of Heathdalel" Mrs. Farnum looked frightened at Virgie's startling threat, and she rea\x=req-\ lised at onoe that she had underrated the character of the woman with whom she had to deal. She saw that she was capable of great decision and prompt action; that beneath her gracious sweetness, and gentle, winning manner, there lay a reserve force and strength upon which she had not reckoned, and which would have to be overcome—if over' come at all—by strategy and deception. It would never do for the young wife to set out for England—at least if there were any power to prevent it, for it would destroy all their carefully laid plans and their hopes for the future. It had never occurred to Mrs. Far\x=req-\ num that she would contemplate such a proceeding. She knew that Bhe was a stranger and absolutely frlendlesB in the city; ly beneath the terrible blows that f had dealt her, that all life and spirit would be crushed out of her, and she would be only t...

■©tjc Uteres. Nfe. temere, W-timid*. PRINTED - AT - TRAFALGAR, Published Thursday Mornings. THURSDAY, JULY 5, 1906. 1H0E SWAMP DRAINACE. GOVERNMENT NEGLECT. If the -true history of the Moe Swamp is evei- written it will afford an excellent' illustration of Government bungling and departmental incompetence. An area ol ten or twelve thousand acres of land was thrown open for selection and eagerly taken up, the settlers- being assured that it was thoroughly reclaimed and fit for use. It was not long, however, before they discovered that they had been cruelly misled. . .Not only were the drains insufficient,- both in number and size, .to carry off the water that flowed on to the swamp area, but scarcely a road or track was fit for traffic after an ordinary rainfall. The terrible losses suffered by the' settlers during the past few seasons by flood waters are too well I known' to need recapitulation here. Many who took up holdings with a fairly substantial capital and full of hope, have ...

HEROINE AND PATRIOT. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 5 July 1906
HEROINE AND PATRIOT,^® There died not long ago, In France, a once wealthy lady, who, during the Franco-German War, went through, eight battles in the capacity of cantl-i\x=req-\ niere (or canteen woman) in a jPrenea regiment. x In these engagements, under a heavy fire, she saved the lives of scores of wounded soldiers, finally losing her right arm by a shot while tending a dying man. During the Commune Insurrection '' 1 she was seized as a spy, imprisoned, > and afterwards sentenced to be shot./ ; When led out for execution ahe show* ed no trace o£ fear, and merely begged the favor that her eyes should not be bandaged, and that she herself might give the word to fire. So impressed were the Communis officers that they spared her life. It is a sad circumstance that, ajfctrt such a career, in which she snri-^tnoat of jb^.^^une in the relief suffering, shoulci^ayQ (Uefi. uj comparative poverty.

CHAPTER XV. The Lawful Wife. "Have you a picture of your—of Sir William, madam?" Mrs. Farnum. inquired, as she folded the letter and returned It to the envelope. Virgie arose without a word, and, taking a velvet album from the table, opened it to a certain picture and laid it before her companion. Mrs. Famum uttered a cry of de* tan&lt;ir Qu&lt;*t la a picture of Sir "William - Heathdale; there can be no Atake'," she confessed, with a per\x=req-\ ly rigid face. "But, Mrs.—oh, ma\x=req-\ Comnssro1—1 am simply stunned!" What do you mean?" Virgie deeded, standing straight and tall better, and meeting her eyes with a lazing look which warned Mrs. Far ■.urn to be carefui how she dealt with that spirit. " " . " i calm, my child," she d, with a pitiful accent. "Sit down e me here, and I will explain why so disturbed. Good heavens! always supposed that Sir William 3 a man of unblemished ho: Madam, be careful how you speai. of my husband!" Virgie interrupted haughtily, yet wi...

Virgie's Inheritance. Authoress of "Two Keys," "JDorothy's Jewels," "Mona, or The Secret of a Royal Mirror," "Imogen's Intrigue," etc. .CHAPTER XIV.—Continued. ... "May I ask, Mrs. Farnum," Virgie continued, "bow long you have been In America?" "We sailed from Liverpool the sixth of May." Virgie's heart sank a trifle. "And had you seen your friend, Lady Linton, within a few months previous 'to that time?" ' "Lady Linton came to London only three weeks before, to make m farewell visit. She was with me days." The young wife grew pale. "And did she not mention the fact of her brother's marriage?" she quired in a faint voice. "No such event in connection with him has ever been announced," ret ed the woman, ruthlessly. "His friends know nothing of it. Si ." William Heath is believed by his friends to be a single man. More than this " Virgie stopped her with a gesture, but she was as white as newly-fallen snow as-she arose, and going to writing-desk, brought a letter, which she laid upon ...
