THE MISSION OF FLOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 28 May 1914

THE MISSION OF FLOWERS. Mr. Rider Haggard as a novelist lias thrilled thousands, hut never, perhaps, did his pen do better work than when it formed the following words, constituting, as they do, an enthusiastic and an effective "appre ciation" of flowers:— "I adore flowers," says some lady, contemplating a bouquet of orchids or prize chrysanthemums that others have raised at her expense. But she never watched the wonder of their growth; she never saw the shoot start to life; or the pseudo-bulb form; or day by day the flower spike ma ture. All that such a one cares foi ls the blaze of color when it comes, if even she really cares for this. With those who love the flowers, who, whatever their opportunities, are gar 'deners born, It is otherwise. The poor woman, for example, worn out with want, a dweller, perhaps, in the grimy slum of some vast city, who nurtures on the window-sill of her one room a cactus or a rose cut ting. When the cactus opens it3 gorgeous dazzling cup, white as th...

SECRET NAVAL CODE BOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 28 May 1914

SECRET NAVAL CODE BOOK. Few things are so jealously.guarde'd as the secret code hook of the Uni ted States Navy. It is a 'hook of sig nals—not the ordinary "wig-wag" sig nals used in the daily direction of the fleet by a commanding officer—hut a code of signals to foe used solely in time of war and in the presence of an enemy. These secret code hooks are issued only to the executive officers of a ship, who are enjoined to protect them against theft hy every possible means. These books are threatened not so much by the ordinary thief as by secret emissaries of other Govern ments who desire to obtain knowledge of what the battleships would do in time of action. Governments have no scruples against theft in such cases. The loss of one of these secret code books by an officer, unless explained to the entire satisfaction of the Sec retary of the Navy, would mean court martial and probable expulsion from the service. To the honor of the United States Service, no officer has ever yet 'been...

GREATER THAN GOLD By L. T. MEADE, Author o£ "The Soul of Margaret Rand," etc. Fublislied by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London & Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XIII. While Mrs. Bellairs, in fear and trembling, had been hurrying cowards the shaboy little shop of Isaac Morde cai, Captain O'Doyle, punctually at 12 o'clock, presented himself at the hotel in the Strand. He inquired lor Mr. Kruger and sent up his card, on which was inscribed his Cull name and the cavalry regiment to which lie belong ed. He was a remarkably good-look ing young man and, what was far more to the point, (he generous and noble nature of liis Irish heart shone through his steadfast, steady blue eyes. Captain O'Doyle, however, could not help wondering what a South African solicitor wanted with him. Bellairs - had told him nothing beyond urging him very earnestly to go, naming the appointed hour, and assuring Ijim that he could not but be pleased with Karl Kruger. He waited somewhat rest...

HOW NELSON LOST HIS EYE. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 28 May 1914

HOW NELSON LOST HIS EYE. It is a curious fact that no one has been able to say precisely when and where Nelson lost his left eye. Some say that the disaster occurred during the siege o£ Bastia, in 1793, while others decide that it was the siege ot Calvi. According to Signor D. Liberato Abarca, General in the ser vice of the Nicaraguan Republic, both these accounts are false. He says that it was in tjie year 1780, when the future "god of the seas," then a post captain in the Royal Navy, was cruis ing along the coast of Central Ameri ca, that he received the wound which added him to the list of one-eyed warriors. After inflicting every pos sible injury on the Spanish Colonies, Nelson resolved to take by assault the castle of San Carlos de Nicara gua. With a flotilla of launches and other flat-bottomed boats, he rowed up the river of San Juan, which flows into the Gulf of Mexico. Tha Spanish commander was laid up in bed with a severe illness, and the garrison, terrified at the imposing...

VORACITY OF THE JACKASS. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 28 May 1914

VORACITY OF THE JACKASS. Mr. R. G. ~ Wise, of The Springs, Woodford, had a curious experience the other day. While driving his bul lock dray he noticed a laughing jack ass apparently battling with a snake by the roadside. Taking his whip handle he went over to the scene of the conflict with the view of helping the bird to overcome its enemy. On approaching, however, he saw that the battle was over, and that the kookaburra had commenced to swal low the reptile—a green snake 4ft. 3in. long. He had got down about Din. of the head end and there the snake stuck, the bird being neither able to complete its absorption nor to eject it. It was its efforts to get rid of the snake that had led to the vio lent struggle which drew the atten tion of the passer by. Mr. Wise pick ed up the "combination," the bird be ing unable to offer resistance, and carried it home, and secured an exce' lent photograph of the still firmly united pair. Then he hauled out the snake by main strength and allowed the ...

Two Men. Prom Mr. R. Olds, 121 Bell-street. Wanganui, N.Z.:— "About two years ago I was suffer ing from a weak back and kidney trouble so badly that I was hardly able to move about owing to the excrucia ting pain. My digestion -was affected also. I went to a doctor, but had no faith in his treatment. Then I was advised to try Warner's Safe Cure, and after talcing that medicine for a short time I found that it was doing me so much goo-J that I continued to take it. Now I am in the best of health." From Mr. 3. Colgan, Guildford-road, ■Maylands, Perth, W A.:— "I have taken Warner's Safe Cure ■v ith most gratifying results when suf fering from a severe attack of liver and ltidney trouble. I had pains in the back, under the shoulder blades, a heavy, dull pain in the temple and over my eyes, and a ringing sensation in' my ears. At times I would seem comparatively well, but would then be attacked with the most distressing symptoms, feeling peculiar pains in all parts of my body. My appetit...

MARGARINE. A MENACE TO BUTTER. The following article, written by L. Lnwsby, secretary of tho Cooperative Butter Factories' Association of Victoria, appeared in a recent issue of the Australian Farm and Home:— , Tho colored margarine question has for souio time received a good deal of at tention by nil interested m tho buttor businoss.

HABIT. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 28 May 1914

HABIT. Habit in a person is at first like , a spider's web; if neglected it be comes a thread u£ twine; next, a cord of rope; finally, a cable — then who can break it? - There are habits contracted by bad example, or manj other ways, before we have judgment to discern their approaches, or be cause the eye o£ reason is laid asleep. Coleridge, one of the finest poets of his time, battled for twenty , years before he could emancipate him self from his tyrant, opium. He hired a man to watch him day and night, and koop ljijai by force from touching the pernicious drug. He formed re solution after resolution. Yet, during all the best years of his life, he wast ed his substance and his health, ne glected his family, lived accursed be cause ho had no resolution to ab stain. He would even lay plans to cheat the man whom he had paid to keep the drug from him. His case is an extreme one, yet, how often we see men bound so firmly by the chain of strong drink, that they make shipwreck of themsel...

If the financial estimates of the mili tary experts be accepted by a complacent and high-spirited Australian people, it ia readily conceivable that they will pass from reckless folly to financial bank ruptcy.

DONTS FOR DAIRYMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 28 May 1914

DON'rs FOR DAIRYMEN. The following'hints to dairy farm firs are given by Mr. R. T. Archer, senior tonpoofco.r, .in fch© Journal of Agriculture for May:— Don't feed ^strong-smelling foods immediately before or.during milking. Always after milking.—Because the railk will absorb any odors that'oome in contact with it. Dont forget to face your shed east and north.—Because the morning sun helps to keep the shed sweet and wholesome. Don't neglect to put an impervious floor in the milking Shed.—Because, if the .floor is not impervious, urine and filth soak in, and railk will absorb smells arising therefrom. Brick or bluestone pitohers grouted with ce ment, or concrete, make good floors. Don't neglect to lirae-wash the sheds and dairy twice yearly.—Be cause it helps to keep down flies, I disease and smells. • Don't neglect to have yards pitched or gravelled.—Because souring and tflint in milk are due to contamina tion, principally by germs found in manure; therefore, all manure must be regu...

TONICS. Tonics—that is, harmless tonics— are good at times when given to ra tionally fed fowls. The healthiest birds are liable to become run down, especially during the breeding season, and a little good tonic given at the right time is a pick-me-up. But to make use of tonics and spices indis creetly, with the object of securing high egg yields as equivalent to thrashing up a horse so that the pas senger may catch his train. The ob ject in view may be achieved, but the poor horse invariably suffers.

INFLUENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 28 May 1914

INFLUENCE. Our daily behavior, our manners and morals, have a power over oth ers that never ceaBes, nor can cease, until the poor waves o£ time break into nothingness upon ■ the eternal shore. Therefore it is well that we should have a clear view ' of that great force Of life which we call "in fluence." The word is not ill-chosen. Influence is something that flows into you, whether you wish it or not, as the air around you will enter your lungs without your thinking about it. And as it is not needful even that you should know anything about your lungs in order that the air may enter them, so all vilenesses or sweetnesses may enter into your character by the influence of others, and do you either good or evil; and whether you know you are being affected or not, you arc being affected by a . necessary law of your being. Therefore "influence" is that power which one man exercises over another, modifying and deter mining his thoughts and actions, and that influence may be exercised with...
