MAGNANIMOUS. The Mayor: Have you heard, Mr. Roche, that our generous townsman. Mr. Harding, is defraying the cost of a new promenade all round the town? We think a -wealthy man like yourself mi eh t also do something for us. Mr. Roche. Well, what do you say to my giving you a park of oak trees? The Mayor: Oh, you noble-hearted philanthropist! Why, do you really moan to—-— Mr. Roeho: Yes, yes; I'll make the town a present of an oak forest. You have only to find the land, and I will supply you with as many acorns as you may want for seed I The late Lord Young was responsible for enlivening many a dull case. One of the most amusing remarks that ever fell from his lips was the reply to a counsel who urged on behalf of a plain tiff of somewhat bibulous appearance : "My client, my lord, is a most able man, and holds a very responsible posi tion. He is manager of some water works." After a long look, Lord Young an swered : "Yes; he looks like a man who could be trusted with any amount of w...

JUST AS IT HAPPENED. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 February 1914

" ioJUSTo AS IT HAPPENED. ! (By BRUNO LESSING, in the "Cosmopolitan.") You were told in the beginning that this would be a rambling, inconse quential tale—merely a chronicle-of the facts as they chanced to happen. •Life itself, you are informed, often progresses in an incoherent : fashion, without rhyme or reason, and the philosopher who undertakes to grasp the -phenomena of coincidence ' or the natural sequence of cause and . effect usually has nothing but a head ' ache for his pains. A man endeavour ing, to avoid a brick falling from a building in course of construction, takes to the'middle of the street. We all tVis caution. .Then, unexpectedly, the middle of the street 'caves in. What is the use of calling it anything? Lapidowitz, with a cheque for one hundred and twenty-five dollars in his pocket, started for the banli the mo ment Nathan Gomprecht took the dog away.

CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 February 1914

CORRESPONDENCE. [We wish it to be distinctly understood that we do not necessarily approve of the opinions expressed by correspondents in this column.] Sir,—The unsatisfactory condition of affairs in State politics again forces me to crave space in your valuable columns to make a few remarks. - The issue of " Town v. Country" has undoubtedly been raised. To every country elector the fact has been brought home that country interests must occupy a sub ordinate position. I am, and always have been, an advocate of one vote one value. Unlike the "Age," I am not an advocate of privileges for one section of the community, while denying the same privileges to the other section. Mr Watt has evidently found himself on the horns of a dilemma. He has been fully seized of the fact that the primary industries are not forging ahead at the same rate as are the secondary industries. He attempted to rectify the anomaly by placing one of the most un democratic measures of recent years on the statute b...

GREEN MANURING. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 February 1914

GREEN MANURING. Green manuring increases the organ ic content of the soil, whioh is a. dom inating factor in soil fertility. The restoration of organic matter is a prob lem. of fundamental importance to the wheat areas. The turning in of greon crops i8 one of the most rapid methods of increasing the organic reserves in the soil. Whether this practice may bo profitably worked in with the ordinary rotations in the wheat areas has not hitherto been the subject of experi ments. A number 'of persons were talking about telescopes, and each professed to have looked through the "largest one in the world:' One after another told of the powerful effect of the respectiye telescopes. At last a quiet man said mildly. "I once looked through a telescope. I don't know as it was the largest in the world. I hope it wasn't. JBut it brought the moon so near that we could see the man gesticulating in it wildly and crying out: 'Don't shoot—don't shoot!' The old fool thought it was a big cannon that we we...

IF WE KNEW. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 February 1914

IF WE KNEW. Could we but draw back the curtains That surround each other's lives, See their naked heart and spirit, Know what spur the action gives; Often we should find it better, Purer than we judge -we should— We should love each other better, If we only understood. Could we judge all deeds by motives, See the good and bad within, Often we should love the sinner. All the while ive loathe the sin. Oould we know the powers working To overthrow integrity, We should judge each other's errors With more patient charity. If we knew the -care and trials, Knew the effort all in vain, And the bitter disappointment, Understood the loss and gain : Would the grim external roughness Seem, I wonder, just the same? Would we help where now we hinder? Would we pity where we blame ? Ah! -we judge each-other harshly, Knowing not life's hidden force; Knowing not the fount of action Is less turbid at its source. Seeing not amid the evil All the golden grains of good; Oh! we'd love each other better, I...

THE BLOATER. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 February 1914

THE BLOATER. It is generally known that a bloater is a complete herring slightly salted and smoked; but few people are aware that the origin of this article of diet was accidental. A Yarmouth herring curer, when leaving his premises one niglit after all his work people had gone found a quantity of good herrings which had been overlooked. Fearing they would be spoiled if left as they were, he sprinkled them with salt and hung them in his "smoke house/' in which oak-billet was then being burned. The next morning it was evident that his experiment had been successful. began to specialise in this direction, an example which was speedily followed by others', until the fame of the bloater was established in the land. The kipper is a split herring cured in smoke. The late Mr. John Woodger, of Newcastle-on-Tyne and Yarmouth, was the fortunate discoverer of this me thod of treating the herring. _ The process of producing the red herring is analogous to that of the bloater, the difference bei...

SUBMARINE CINEMA PICTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 February 1914

SUBMARINE CINEMA PICTURES. J Among the probabilities of the fu ture are moving pictures taken at the bottom of the sea. Already a young American, J. Ernest Williamson, has taken snapshots at a depth of thirty five feet, and will soon take a moving picture outfit to Bermuda to procure desired submarine scenes. For this trip a special boat will be used. "Wil liamson is a newspaper photographer and cartoonist. His father, Capt. J. H. Williamson, invented the flexible sub marine tube from which photographs under the wntar have already been taken .Recently in Hampton Roads Wil liamson, the younger, went down in the tube, which was fixed into a well at the bottom of a barge thirty feet long. The well was six feet- square. The tube, made of iron sections with a water proof cover of rubber and canvas, could be lowered to any depth. At the bot tom of the tube was the "work-cliam- ' ber, C," as Williamson calls it, which may be of any size. In this William son sat with an ordinary camera and ...

STORY OF ANNIE LAURIE. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 February 1914

STORY OF ANNIE LAURIE. She was not a creature of fmaginai uon, but an actual verity, of 'whose ancestry honorable mention is made in Scotch history. Stephen Laurie was a flourishing merchant of Dum fries before James VI. became king. Prior to 1611 he married Marion, daughter of Provost Coran, getting with her a handsome marriage por tion. Being a man of many acres, he took the designation of Maxwelton, leaving at his death his lands and titles to his eldest son John. The next head of the house was Robert, a bar onet. He was twice married, and had, by his second wife, three sons and four daughters. The birth of one of the latter is thus entered in the family register by the father: "At the pleasure of the Almighty God, my daughter, Annie Laurie, was born upon the 16th day of December, 1682, about 6 o'clock in the morning, and was baptised by Mr. George Hunter, the minister of Glencairn." The well knojvn lyric was composed by Doug las Finland, ardent admirer of "Bon nie Annie," who di...

No common man had ever spoken to him in this - cavalier fashion before. He became furious, and he lashed the doorkeeper across the face with his riding whip.. "Now," said he, "will you stand aside?" "No, Excellency. Strike away. I am here to bar that door, and lash ings will not affect me. My orders are peremptory, and I ' shall obey them." Again the noble brute slashed and cut the poor, faithful janitor about face and head, and neck, but with the same re6ult.
