CYCLING. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 19 September 1914

CYCLING. The report that the tjeiman armies invading France are lowing large quantities of their ammunition and food convoys, owing to their petrol supplies becoming exhausted, will be » most serious loss to the Germans, for motor fuel is just as essential nowadays to an army as coal is (o a navy. Should (he war be a protracted one, shortage of pet rol or benzol will become a matter of great moment; to Germany, for her supplies in this direction depend oh an open Feaway. Benzol (pro duced from coal) i6 paid to be made in considerable qualities in Ger many, hut hardly in sufficient quan tities to supply (he needs of the tens of thousands of motor vehicles now continually in use by the various German armies in the fi^ld, for any great length of time.

MALAY SUPERSTITIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 19 September 1914

I MALAY SUPERSTITIONS. A Malay child has to be sturdy to survive the perils of his birth and babyhood. Only an iron constitution could bear the balls of rice that are stuffed into his mouth or the cold bath which greets him immediately on hi9 appearance in the world. But it is not that a Malay mother is indifferent to the physical welfare of her off spring. When her child falls il! no one could be more solicitous. The house and the village are ransacked to find the cijuse of the sickness. If it is suspected to be in the interior of the house, the services of a native doc tor are obtained. After concentrating his thoughts upon the pit of his stomach for a time ho will prob'.bly call for "female cocoa-nut." Talcing then a knife of a peculiar shape, he mutiers incantations in a forgotten tongue and proceeds to shave the nut. If the person who has bewitched the child is living in the house he will awake the next morning with a skull as bald as the cocoanut itself. Sympathy that begins a...

DON'T TAKE AWAY THEIR PINS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 19 September 1914

DON'T TAKE AWAY THEIR PINS. A broker talked luminously the other day of the de.cline in the value of securities. He said we must be careful not to legislate too harshly against the country's vested interests, or the prosperity of these interests, and with it the country's prosperity, would be impaired. 1-le illustrated his meaning with a story. There was a school teacher, he said, who ex claimed impatiently one afternoon: "Johnny Jones, what are you fum bling with there?" Johnny hung his head and was si lent. But the tell-tale of the class spoke up: "It's a pin he's got, ma'am." "Well, take it from him," said the teacher, "and bring it here to me." This was done, and then, in a mol lified voice, the teacher said: "Now, Johnny Jones, get up and recite your history lesson." But Johnny did not obey. He blush ed, hung his head, and sat still. "Johnny," said the teacher, "rise, I tell you." Then the little fellow blurted out distressfully: "I can't, ma'am. That there pin you took is what...

THE HAT-PIN MENACE. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 19 September 1914

THE HAT-PIN MENACE. Everyone knows that a hat-pin point, protruding several inches beyond the brim of a woman's hat, is a source of danger to anyone in close proximity to the wearer of the pin. Probably 110 one sees the more serious conse quences so frequently as the eye specialist. Sometimes the injury con sists of a mere scratch, which heals readily and leaves 110 permanent de lect. On the other hand, every now and then the scratch becomes in fected, and serious impairment. of sight, if not actual loss of- the eye, re sults. One who has seen these bad results is for ever alarmed for him self and others when he sees a pro truding hat-pin point in a crowded car or theatre lobby, or wherever peo ple are closely crowded together. It ought not to bo necessary to pass laws to pre' ent such accidents, but as the number of such cases does not de crease it would seem to be desirable to make the wearing of shorter hat pins obligatory. There are devices on the market for covering and protect...

CHAPTER XIX. After the Verdict. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 19 September 1914

CHAPTER XIX. After the Verdict. Ilerepath staggered back before the force of the cruel blow. Iu his heart of hearts he had never dre.u of anything quite so 'bad as this. He thought that perhaps he might have to weal- glasses, would have to be care ful, that his reading would be restrict ed, but nothing more than that. Ho had hoped to get those precious drawings finished a bit at a time. If he carried out the commands of his doctor he would be compelled to spend every penny he possessed. On his return to England he would have to begin the world all over again. Hitherto he had felt so strong and self-reliant. Now he had a curious feeling of weakness and utter depen dency. He would have to rely on strangers in future; he would have to trust his fortunes to those whom he could not even see. Slowly and gradually the blood crept back to his cheeks again, the roaring in his cars died away. "1 shall have to keep a dog," he said bitterly. "A dog the end of a string." "It won't be quite as ba...

THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT. By FRED M. WHITE. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., London and Melb. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER' XVIII. "The Sentence of the Court." We left Daniel Harley and Dr. Gil ray engaged in a brisk battle of wits in the miser's study iti that strange old house by the riverside. After Gilray's pointed allusion to the fact that Harley had a daughter, and his thjniy-veiled hint that she might be part of the price he should require for any risky business he was asked to undertake, the two men faced each other for some time in silence. It was as though each was trying to read the other's thoughts. But both were wearing their usual inscru table business masks, and neither found any advantage accrue from that silent scrutiny. "Go on," Harley croaked at last. "Go on, young nian. Yo^- are here with some project in your mind." "I came because you sent for me, sir. I must ask you to remember that."

A British matron took up her posi tion ip the middle of the course, ard sternly refused to budge, in spite of frenzied yells of "Fore!" At length a respectable middle-aged solicitor went up to her, and said, in his'most kindly professional manner: "My dear, good woman, I would move from here if I were you. If-nol, you may he hit" The lady, lit mother of the bulldog breed, put up a pair of fists in ap proved Stadium fashion as she re plied: "I'll get 'it, will I? You 'it me, and see!"

THE LOVELINESS OF LOVE The Cantankerous Crank on the Pathetic Passion. I am not cantankerous because I have never been in love, but because I have been in love so often—in unre Quited love. And as onlookers see most of the game, I will lavish on young swains and love-sick lassies the wealth of my experience.

Langorous legs in pur ple and transparent stockings, pretty and provoking faces, low-necked blous cs, ;i go-away-closer look in the eye, rouse his ardor. The more ornamental and the less useful the maiden, the more he loves her. He would rather have a "skirt," as they call them in the States, who is "some skirt," whose eyes are like midnight pools with the moon on them, whose hair is plenteous enough to stuff a cushion, and who doesn't know a scrubbing brush from ft saucepan, than a squint-eyed girl who cooks like ail a...
