THE t1US1C[ U 0t 1110 nV Sulls By FRED. M. WHITE. Author of "The Ends of Justice," etc. Published by arangement with Ward,. Lock and Co., London and Melb. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER IX.-Continued. Marion looked swiftly from one to the other. She was puzzled. Almost flawless as she was, sheliad her minor weaknesses, or she had:- been less ch riri fthan she wasad `she hated to be puzzled. Vera was no longer pale and all signs of languor had departed, yet she looked confused, and there was the trace of a blush on her cheeks. -"Sometimes I fancy that Uncle Ralph is laughing at us all," she said, with a laugh that was not altogether natural. "But I am all right now, dear Marion. Save for a racking headache, I am myself again." Marion, solicitous for others always, flew for her smelling salts. In tlree strides Ralph was across the floor, and had closed the -door behind her. His manner had instantly changed, he was fully of energy and action. "Take this," he whispered. "Take. -it and t...

A BRAVE SOLDIER His Sixth Medal. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 February 1915
A BRAVE SOLDI EK SHis Sixth Medal. He had been put out as a vidette, ?r scout, and for hours be had peered .into the darkness around him to watch for the slightest sign of danger-list-' ened like one who realised that the wily Arab of the desert steals upoi. his prey with all the silent cunning of the American Indian. As the stars of night began to pale before the ad vance of- dawn he felt like one re prieved. While he watchedthe en emy had, for once, seemed to sleep. Daylight would bring a continuation of the march, and every hour would witness a skirmish; but'even a battle does not unnerve a man like standing vidette on a lone and dangerous post. What! Has he become blind? Day light now covers the desert, and the vidette is looking towards the camp of the night. There is no camp. At midnight he left 800 of his comrades. This morning there is no sign of life. He looks to the right, but there is na vidette. He Ipoks to the left-no liv. ing thing meets his eyes. He stands and peers, ...

DRESS MEANS EVERYTHING. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 February 1915
DRESS MEANS EVERYTHING. "It doesn't matter what one wears at home," many a girl is apt to say. but, my dear girls, it does. More thin half your life is spent at home, so surely it is worth while to dress to look nice there. Frowsy, half-worn dresses,. dilapidated underweazr and shabby petticoats at home mark the girl who is overdressed outside as a rule-not the girl who looks nice and suitably dressed for both occasions. For to look nice, a girl must be suit ably dressed, a sensible working-dress for morning wear, more elaborate ones for afternoon or street wear. Everywhere, nowadays, a rent stress is being put upon personal ap pearance, dress, and neatness; and in business life, as in the lnme.. th,-s. are all-important. Slovenliness- is a bad advertisement, and many of the large business houses insist on earr ful dress, even in their errand boys: whatever dress is worn at any time:. shou.d be clean and well brushed;. -s welt as being as becoming as posSi.le. and the personal detai...

"THE law of life is change," and "Circumstance is an unspiritual god." These are phases of the great law of evolution, and apply ing them to the political circum stances of Australia they inevitably point to Unification. The financial responsibilities of the war necessi tate concentration of resources; the complexities of transcontinental railway management point in the same direction; and the increased territorial responsibilities of the Commonwealth in the Pacific ne cessitate Unification. The Federal Constitution Act provides the ma chinery for making the change, and the present Ministry should set it in motion.

A MEAN MARQUIS. Seeks a Cheap Cure. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 February 1915
A MEAN MARQUIS. Seeks a Cheap Cure. A famous French surgeon, M. Vel pean, was visited one day at his. house during the -consultation hour by a mar quis renowned for his closeness. Velpeau informed the marquis that an operation was urgent and that the fee would amount to four thousand francs. At this the marquis made o wry face and left. A fortnight later Doctor Velpeau while making his rounds in the Hos pital de Ia Charite, was attra.ct'rd by a face that seemed familiar to him. In answer to his inquiry he learned that the patient was a footman in the ser vice of a nobleman in the Fau'boure Saint Germain. The nsrgeon found that his case resembled in every par. ticular the somewhat unusual one fit which the marquis had consulted hini' a fortnight previously. He refrained-. however, from making any coniments. Three weeks after the operation, when the patient was about to be d!scharged; Doctor Velpeau called him aside. "Monsieur," he said. "1. am. ex tremely flattered and pleased to hav...
A NOTE-BOOK for ODD JOBS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 February 1915
A NOTE-BOOK for ODD JOBS. It pays to keep a notebook in which to jot down odd jobs that need attention, and which are so hard to remember when there is time which might be given to them. If a lock has become balky, or a room needs measuring for paper, or something must be hunted from the attic, make a note of it in the handy odd-jobs book. Look through the book frequently and check off the tasks accomplished. No one can be depended upon to remember all these things until pressing need jogs the memory. The handy little. note book will save many inconveniences if given a trial.

About 10,000 people, it is estima. ted. will take part in the exodus, of whom about 2000 will be actual em ployes of' the company. Their wives, families, and dependants are reckon ed at between 5000 and 6000, the bal auce being made up of tradespeople and others who have announced their intention of joining in the migration. A somewhat similar happening took place some years ago when the North Western railway determined to make Wolverton, in Bucks, the Crewe of its system.' In a single day the place was transformed from a sleepy vil lage into ...

PAINT ON THE FARM. Use a little paint on the steel water tanks, and you will lengthen their days of usefulness very much. The farmer should check the cor iription of rust wherever he finds it preying upon the tools and machin ery on his farm. Barndoor hinges, 'steel wheels, land rollers, well pumps, waggons and tools, as well as all buildings, can be preserved almost indefinitely by an occasional coat of paint, well worked onto the surface.
BACCHUS MARSH. No. 46. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 February 1915
ii . BACOHUS MARSH. By W. WILLIAMS, B.A. No. 46. Bacchus Marsh of 1870 was ahead of: Bacchus Marsh of 1915, in one ri:: respect. It had an excellent drama tic:society, and plays like "Othello" were essayed, and comedy also was introduced. Mr. Wilson, the head teacher of the Central School, must have had histrionic gifts, while special mention is made more than once of the way in which Master Bowser sustained his reputation for playing female parts. He was par ticularly successful in "Mrs. Squif fern," whoever that lady may be.- I am not in a position to state whether Master' Bowser was the pre sent Member of Parliament, or a brother; Master Bowser also ex celled as a comic singer. The crit - icism reads :"With clear conscience we can set it down that Master Bowser bewildered and delighted the audience by his singing, in character as a female, a comic song, the name of which we cannot give, but it was wittier than such compositions usu ally.:are. His manner of doing this was all but ...
CARING FOR THE EGG. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 February 1915
CARING- FOR THE EGG. In the summer months, eggs should receive the same care and consideration as sweet milk and cream, and -be marketed daily if possible. They should not be ex posed to drafts of warm air, and should be protected from the iays of the sun and from moisture, in handling, marketing and shipping. The common practice of holding eggs for higher market price in autumn results in poor quality and serious loss instead of gain. Under ordin ary farm conditions, eggs should never be held. The farmer, how ever, is not the only one responsible for shrunken eggs on the market. Country merchants have been equally blamable for the annual loss. A ,fresh eg will absorb odors as readily as fresh milk. Mustiness or mouldy growth in egg cases or fillers will taint the egg and lower quality. Eggs should not be stored in musty cellars, or in rooms with fruit, vegetables or fish. The flock should never be allowed to drink filthy water, be fed musty grains or strong-flavored vegetables, as ...
