LEILA AND HER LOVER Published by Arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co. Ltd., Lond. and Melb.(All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER V. The Voyage. I. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 27 March 1914
LEILA AND HER LOVER By MAX PEMBERTON. published by Arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co. Ltd., Lond. and Melb. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER V. The Voyaje. I. The friends heard of the adventure shortly after midnight, and discussed it in awesome tones above the very cabin where Leila watched Desdy in his heavy sleep. This was a rare blow to them, for thev perceived immediately .that it meant the end of their holiday. Far from being misogynists, in spite of the philosopher, they had throughout the whole of the cruise ig nored woman as an issue, and rarely mentioned her name when it was not prominently in the newspapers. They had believed Hu-gh Donald himself to he a man who would never marry. • His aversion to the sex had become a Dy-word among them, and yet here was the very truth. "A girl aboaTd the Christa'bel!" But for the light in the cabin, which was unoccupied yes terday, they never would have fce lievr-d it. Herr Joseph, the steward, broke the news to them, and his tones were ...

III [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 27 March 1914
III. Meanwhile there was Stranraer Harbor at dusk and all its terrors. Hugh told her at sunset just what he meant to do, and she listened without protest. His own motorcar would be waiting for them at Stran raer; his own launch would take them ashore. "They know me here," he said, "there will be no trouble. If your old sailorman has not been able to hold his tongue, I do not suppose the cackle of it has travelled so far. We shall go ashore when it is dark and travel all night to Aberfeldy. It will be time enough when we get there for my sister and me to decide what is the best thing to be done." She looked up quickly at the word sister. "Do you think that I shall be able to abide by your decision?" she ask ed him—a vague question whose meaning he understood. "Oh," he said, "Geraldine is one ot the best -little women in the world; she doesn't always seem to be, but that's her manner. As I am her principal divinity I shall be very much surprised if she does not share my views. The gre...
II [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 27 March 1914
II. Leila watched the distant land with a woman's eyes which were full of questioning. The long day on board the Chris tabel had brought with it a meas ure of reason which would now be sifted with a woman's logic.. She had fled from Newcastle in an hour of mad .panic.. Her only desire had been to save the child from the ma chinations of those whom she be lieved to be her enemies. Just as when she staked all upon Desdy's liberty, when she had defied the worst threats of the law and had entered into a conspiracy from which she must emerge a criminal, so in Ireland had she cared nothing for any of the consequences from which might attend an immediate and a successful flight.. Despair had car ried her to the ChriBtabel as to the only haven the night could show her. Here to-day she reckoned with the trouble and asked herself what she had done. Surely now she was an outcast from the world! She had little moiiey, and a montli must pass be fore the trustees would send her the miserable pitt...
CHAPTER VI. At Aberfeldy Castle. I. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 27 March 1914
CHAPTER VI. At Aberfeldy Castle. I. They put into Stranraer Harbor a little after dusk that day. Hugh had told her by that time just what he intended to do, and she had heard bim without protest. A rough passage with almost a gale from the north east kept them to the saloon and to the Archdeacon's humors. The child alone revelled in the uncertainties of the day. He had Herr Joseph clown ing directly his clothes were on, and that fat worthy was a thinner and a sadder man when the lights of Ailsa Craig came to their view. George Hedges was ever a social diplomatist, and hie knowledge of domestic juri3piudcnce intruded hap pily upon this curious situation. Of Leila he formed a truly clerical opin ion. There would be two sisters, he said to himself, and one of them was a little wild. It was quite possible that this beautiful siren they had trapped at Newcastle was in some measure an adventuress and yet to be discovered. He trusted to his own presence and to the majesty of the archidiaco...

II. Not so the Archdeacon; he had de cided to remain. Closeted with Hugh in the private cajbin he forgot even to smoke, so great was his curiosity. "Do you mean to tell me, my dear fellow, that you propose to take her into Scotland?" he asked. Hugh admitted the infamy. "I am trusting to my judgment," h;> said.; "if we did that always, life would he rather easier. Just consider, George, how much that we do is the result of men's convictions or their prejudices. Sometimes the prejudices are feminine—the argument is the same. I am trusting to an instinct which says that I have met one of the hest of women, and that s' e has need of me. If there were a thousand advocates in this cabin at this mo ment telling- me I was deceived, it would make no difference. She will go to Scotland, and I shall ask my sister to take up her case. After that it wall be plain sailing." The Archdeacon was not so surie of it. "A very worthy purpose," he said, and repeated the words as though they were oil u...
A Gentle Reminder. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 27 March 1914
A Gentle Reminder. A native of a small village in Scot land, having "made good" in "furrin parts," returned home, and, to show his more tinfortunate 'brethren at home how little he valued £ s. d., he presented a brand new umbrella stand to the "aukl kirk." In accordance with the usual custom the presenta tion was announced :by the beadle on the Sabbath, just before the service started. The headle, a grizzled old warrior of about seventy, delivered himself in the following manner:— "ISTae doot, brethren, ye'U a' hae no ticed the bran new umbrella stan' that oor 'worthy neiber, Mr. MacRae, has gien tae the kirk. Noo umbrellas is umbrellas, and human naturs human naturs, an' although it ill-behoves me tae say onything agin ony worshipper i' this sacred place, yet tae tell ye the truth we wad a' he verry pleased if Sandy MacQuibbar wad tak' a sittin* a wee bittle farer awa fra-the door!"
IS HAY WORTH GROWING AT 35/PER TON? [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 27 March 1914
IS HAY WORTH GROWING AT W PEIt TON:' -Anent this problem of improving the stock carrying capacity of the farms, a Geelong correspondent has raised the question whether it pays to grow liay and sell it at 3•">/ to .C2 per ton. This correspondent points out that in the Geelong district bay is one of the principal farm erop.-\ and the average yield is II tons per acre (this is slightly above the average for the State, which is about 1 1-3 tons per acre). At -10/ per ton the gross return is £.'3 per acre. The rental for land in the Geelong dis trict is given at J0' per acre, and the cost of sovd, manure, twine, ploughing, harrowing, drilling. culling, stooking, and .stacking at 35 per acre—a total cost of .C2 •")' per acre, leaving a net return of 1-V per acre. Would it not. pay fanners better, this correspondent asks, to feed the liay or chaff to .sheep and cattl" on the farm rather than send it. to market for a net return of 1-V per acre? It would be interesting to hear what practi...
Preposterous. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 27 March 1914
Preposterous. . The christening party consisted of the proud father, the baby—a girl— the grandfather, and the rest of the folks. The grandfather stood nearest the priest during the ceremony. "What's the cl ild's name?" asked the priest of the grandfather, Jit the I appropriate moment. | "I dunno," the grandfather replied, i And he turned to the father and ivliis- j percd hoarsely, "What's its name?"

AN INSTRUCTIVE LESSON. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 27 March 1914
AN INSTRUCTIVE LESSON. One of .the instructive lessons from a study of British imports and of the ex ports of the principal countries whence she draws her .supplies of foodstuffs and law material is this:—That there are much greater opportunities than have hitherto been suspected in developing the stock raising and stock fattening capacity of Australian farms. A great deal has been done in the last 15 or 20 years in expanding dairying or lamb raising. The work has been done by relying almost exclusively 011 natural pastures. It will pay to use the plough to grow crops to »«ed the stock on the i>o«i i«u«» ""J meat, and, in deed, for \v;ool. Tho world's markets for meat and butter are already great and are becoming greater. Wo have scarcely realised yet how much it means to Australia that a producing country Jiko tho United States, w.jiich a genera tion ago was a giant among tho compet ing nations for Great Britain's food sup plies, has to go out of tho business as an exporter, and...

MEAT IMPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 27 March 1914
MEAT J M TOUTS. This is strikingly illustrated in Groat Britain's imports of meat in 1912. Tlie total valuo of tneso from all countries (beef, niuito", Jaml), bacon, hams and IHjrk) was no less than £4 7,137,000! J'ho United States once had tl)i» lion's h'..aro of Lno beef trade. Sin* is now not only out of thy beef trade, l>ut a competitor with Great Britain lor the surplus Argentina and Australia ha-> available for export. Argentina was easily lir.st in supplying British require ments of beef in J9J2. The value of the imports of beef were £13,(57-1,000, anil of this amount no less than £11,-100,000 went to Argentina. Australia eame next, receiving £1,381,000—about dou ble tile value of her contribution to the British market in 1901). WiMi this trade developing so rapidly, and the United States transformed from seller to an eager buyer, it is not diiiicult to forecast that every hoof of beef cattle on Australian pa-turcs will become more valuable in the near future; Nor does ...
BRITAIN'S BILL FOR FOREIGN FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 27 March 1914
BRITAIN'S BILL FOR FOREIGN FOOD. Groat Britain's yearly bill for imports of rood at\d i\iw material affords instruc tive reading for Australian fanners. Tlio figures for 191'2 indicate, not only tiiat tile motherland's ama/.iug volume of imports is increasing, but wliat is of 110 less importance to Australia, that the United States, once a formidable competitor in wheat, flour and meat in tlio import trade ol Cleat Britain, is rapidly falling out of the contest, iler own increase in population (now nearly 100 millions) is taxing her productive capacity in foodstuffs to such an extent that the surplus available for export in nearly all her staple products is vanish ing.
OTHER FARM PRODUCTS. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 27 March 1914
OTHER FARM PRODUCTS. Tlio imports of wool were valued at £;;3,285,UuO. Needless to .say, Australia hiul New Zealand were the cniel .sources of .supply. ' Imports from Australia were worth £12,500,000, and from New Zea land £7,/00,000. i'ne only other coun tries which furnished appreciable sup plies were South Africa £3,220,000 and Argentina £2,20^,000. The United States has no wool to export. On the contrary, she is a large importer, and recently removed her duty on wool, a step which lias stimulated the imports i'rnio Australia and New Zealand. It j may be noted in passing that the total number of .vlie.'p in the United Stales has fallen during the last four or live years from 51 million to 51 million— little mole than half the number in Australia. Canada, all told, lias under three million sheep—about one-fourth of the number of Victoria. In respect to other farm products, it is interesting to note that* Great .Bri tain's imports of fresh fruit, to say nothing of dried, bottled, a...

URIC.ADSTUFFS AND BUTTER. Two lines of exports to the markets of tlic United Kingdom in vvliieiv, for the moment, Australia is more largely interested than in meat, are breadstutls (wheat and flour) and butter. The market is so great t.iat what Australia contributes, although obviously large and important to us, js absorbed with out seriously affecting prices. The im ports of wheat and flour from all coun tries in 1912 wero valued at £51,5)03,000. The amount paid to the United States for wheat was £8,327,000, as against £10,877,(XK) in 1908. British India re ceived £10,944,000; Canada, £8,844,000; Argentina, £7,775,000 • Australia, £5,334,000; and Russia, £3,940,000.

NEW METHOD OF PRESERVING MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 31 March 1914
NEW METHOD OF PRESERVING MILK. A probkm of great importance to the .dairying industry j- a cheap ami effec tive method of preserving milk and its products. C.iul storage, though highly useful for tins ptirp >se, is expensive and limited in its application. Sterilisation by heat causes alteration in the consti tuents of milk, and when pushed to boil ing point affects their digestibility. The worst feature of both pasteurised and boiled milk is tbo likelihood of contam ination by injurious lmcteria when sub sequently exposed to Uhe air. When milk "sours"' under ordinary conditions, it is not injurious to health. The lacti-j acid organisms, always pre sent in normal milk, multiply so rapidly that thrv suppress the injurious organ isms. "When sterilised milk is subse nuently exposed, pei^aps in the home of the com umer, iactic acid organisms may not gain access to it, and so organ isms which may render it, dangerous for Jmman consumption may multiply un checked.
