Trafalgar Mechanics' Institute. ALTERATION TO HALL. The proposal to make alterations to the hall was again discussed at the last Committee meeting of the Me- chanics' Institute. After discussion it was decided to make a start as early as practicable. The proposal is to construct a read- ing-room and library in the front portion of the hall ; add an ad- ditional 36 feet to the rear portion ; and enclose the passage-way between the old and new halls. Mr McLean, our local architect has been instruc- ted to prepare plans in accordance with this scheme, and exhibit same to public view. A general meeting of subscribers will be convened, and if the scheme is approved of the work will be pushed ahead as rapidly as possible.

LIVING IN LUXURY. ENGLISH LADIES AND THEIR PETS. Dogs worth their weight ill gold were exhibited at the l'ekiuese Bhow in Chelsea, and some o£ the sights to be seen there inspired the "Dally News" to the following outburst: "It is dilliuult to read without phy sical nausea the accounts published of the Pekinese Dog Show at Chelsea. Itoman society in its most decadent days would have nothing to fear from comparison with these ladies and their pets. Caligula made his horse a senator; but then Caligula was gen erally recognised by his contemporar ies as entile mad. These peoplo who provide their hideous liltlo animals with motor cars and medicine chosta, who teed them on the most delicate food served in costly china aud de vote no small portion of their own lives (perhaps the least costly sacri iice) to caressing and utteuding upon them, are not accounted mad. Thoy are only fashionable. But need Fash ion also be callous and wicked? And what other epithets can be bestowed 011 a fashion ...

The fact that the men did not attempt to break open any desks or drawers proves that thoy were acquainted with the internal ?irraugeiL'euts of the oiilces. Thoy loll a large uunibor of porcelain teeth, not considering thoiu worth carrying'away. The usual inquiry has been opened, but the po lice, owing to the precautions takou by the burglars, will find thoir task tiurder than usual.. The Arm was in sured against theft.

PRETTY LADY DETECTIVE "SMARTEST THING OUTSIDE SCOTLAND YARD." There is a lady detective iu L011 .1011, a pretty girl with beautiful hair, and a charming smile, who lias, never theless, become the bane of the ex istence of the evildoer. Slie is the daughter ol' u lawyer, and the sister of lawyers, aud to her early training she attributes liei; faculty of "put tinji two and two together." So suc cessful has she proved, that she has now her own ollice, and employs a stall of 12, seven men aud live wo men. Her den suggests a dainty bou doir, rather than a sleuth's ollice. She is just seven and twenty, with a re cord that is envied far and wide among her male rivals. She bus a goodtellow manner, and her very clothes suggest the woman of leisure rather than the keen policeman. But she is a keen observer, and has laid her plans beautifully.

ANIMAL MATES. QUEER CASES OF COMPANIONSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 21 August 1914
V ANIMAL MATES. QUEER CASES OF COMPANION SHIP. There used to bo u large male cat on Tabletop station which was novcr so happy and contented, seemingly, as when curled up on the back of one of the thoroughbred colts which grazed in a paddock at the homestead. After a while the colt also appeared to become very fond of his feline com panion, which would geL on to his back and sleep serenely in the sun what time the horse roamed about in search of grass, or rested in the shade of a tree. Sometimes, if the cat did not make his appearance when expected, the horse would hang about the fence near the house on the look out for his mate, and would give a succession of satisfied whinnies when the wait was ended. Those two ani mals became so attached to each other that they did not appear to need any i other companionship. On Mnndawad I dera station there was for some years an English terrier which could "ride" any horse about the place. But lie was especially the mate of an aged hackney mare....

Gllray pressed a litlo closer to tlic two women, ho was anxious to hear What was passing between them. JJe was doing now what he would have sconiod to do u year or so ago, ilia debts nml his desperato troubles were sapping the moral libre ol' the man, lie was so nervously eager to get to the bottom of this mystery that his gen tlemanly instincts were crushed out. Apparently he stood raptly contem plating one of thu pictures on tho wall. Ever and again words came to him, but ho could make very little of them! Then he started. Ninon Desterro was talking.

CHAPTER VIII. The High Road of Adventure. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 21 August 1914
CHAPTER VIII. The High Road of Adventure. Hero at last !t appeared to Gilray was fortuno holding out both hands to 1,1m. lie had formed a compact with Enid, showing that she was more or less under an obligation to him. It wruld have been a difficult matter U s;tate precisely what that obligation was, but no doubt time would help him to give It some satisfactory de finition. Anyway, Enid had been desperately afraid lest he should speak, lest ho should say something ths I. might put Van dor Knoot on the track of Ills missing miniatures. Gil ray had certainly seen the precious pictures in the hands of Daniel Ilar ley. Whether they had been stolen or not it did not in the least matter -perhaps there was some strange slory atached to their appearance In the queer doclf-houso, some plausible explanation. Even the blackest evi dence sometimes becomes common place when the witnesses for the de fence enter the witness-box. What did it matter? Suppose Dan iel Harley was a thief, what then? At...
ABORIGINALS AS TIN MINERS. LIFE AT BAMBOO CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 21 August 1914
ABORIGINALS AS TIN MINERS. LIFE AT BAMBOO CREEK. By "Prospector." Bamboo Creek ia forty miles north east of Marble Bar, In Western Aus tralia, and Moolyella is twelve miles out on the creek road. Moolyella has a very rich tin field, but is now 011 its last legs, so to speak. There are lifty tin-scratchers si ill there, mak ing lroni tucker up to £5 per week. 1'here are a number of aboriginals in the locality, and tho whites employ the gins to "yandie" their till-i.e., to clean it-which is done oil a piece of wood hollowed out after the fashion of a butcher's tray, and described by natives as a "yandie." This contriv ance is jigged by a peculiar motion of die wrist that impels the dirt in one direction while the tin goes the other. Only the gins do it. The "bucks" are employed on the stations as outrid ers, shepherds, bullock-drivers, etc., and take to it fairly well, being in physique a better class than most auurigiuuls. When left to themselves the bucks make the gins do all the wo...
CHAPTER IX. Along the Road. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 21 August 1914
CHAPTER IX. Along the Road. It wns dono rashly and on the spur of the moment. Exactly what ho wa3 going to discover Gilray had not the faintest notion. It seemed a ridicul ous thing for a prominent Harley-st. specialist to be setting out on a wild, midnight adventure like this with no logical excuse, and no notion where the escapade might lead him. Madame Desterre had annoyed and piqued him. She had spoken of his private affairs with thinly-veiled insolence, and she had, moreover, threatened him. Who was this giddy, glittering society but terfly who ventured to pit her wits against his? He would show her that this sort of thing was not to be toler ated! Gilray's blood was up now, and he was determined to seo the matter through. Tho more knowledge iie gained the better armed would he be for tho fray, if fray there was eventu ally to be. He had been warned to make no further advances towards Enid Harloy-ho had been threaten ed with sorious consequences if he did so. Indeed, it seemed ...

LADIES' LETTER. A certain Melbourne business man »vell known in social clrclcs la cliuc Kling at a joke against himself played upon hlni by his son-a good-looking youth who earns a not princely wage in a city ofUco. One day the young man easuaUy acquainted his father with his intention of taking to him self a wife in the immediate future. "Tray, what do you intend to keep a wife on?" the parent gasped. "1 never heard of such folly; no man has a right to ask a woman to marry him until he has a home to offer her." Without entering into details, the young man doggedly adhered to his Irtentlon of becoming a benedict-a decision which greatly incensed his lather, who informed his offspring of his firm intention of cutting him oft with the proverbial shilling. For some days there was a decided cold ness between father and sou, after which the graceless youth left home on v. visit to a neighboring State, where the lady of his affections hap pened to reside.
