THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT CHAPTER XVIII. "The Sentence of the Court." [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 19 September 1914
THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT. By FRED M. WHITE. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., London and Melb, A11 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 in that strange old house by the riverside. After Gilray's pointed allusion to the fact that Harley had a daughter, and his thinly-veiled hint that she might be part of the price he should require for any risky business he was &lt; asked to undertake, the two men faced each other for some tinie in silence.. " It-wa.5 as- though- each to read1 the other's thoughts. But both were wearing their usual inscru table 'business masks, and neither found any advantage accrue from »that silent scrutiny.

Her Dandy Up. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 19 September 1914
Her Dandy Up. It was holiday-time, and the pub lic links had attracted a crowd of the curious. A British matron took up her posi tion i.n the middle of the course, ar-d sternly refused to budge, in spite >>! 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 not, you may be hit." The lady, fit 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!" If you want to be liappy the first thing you must learn is to be easily I pleased. • 1
THE LOVELINESS OF LOVE The Cantankerous Crank on the Pathetic Passion. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 19 September 1914
THE LOVELINESS OF LOVE The Cantankerous Crank on the Pathetic Passion. t I am not cantankerous because I have never been in love, but because I liave 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. Love takes the heart out of young men and puts heart into young girls. The young man will not say boo! to a goose. Strange things call forth a young man's love. Langorous legs in pur ple and transparent stockings, pretty and provoking faces, low-necked blous es, a 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 a saucepan, than a squint-eyed girl who cooks like an an...
FAREWELL BY DEPUTY. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 19 September 1914
FAREWELL BY DEPUTY. The other morning as a departing trans-Atlantic steamer was casting off its lines and swinging out into the stream, an elderly business man hast ily embraced a lady who was one of the passengers and rushed down the gang plank to the wharf. Going hurriedly up to a melancholy loafer who was watching the busy | crowd, the geHlemau drew him be hind a pile of luggage and said: "Want to earn a shilling or two?" "You bet I do." "You see that lady in black o" the bridge there?" said the elderly one. j "Certainly." "Well, that's my wife going abroad. Now, ol' course, she'll expect me to stand here for the next twenty min utes, while the steamer is backing and tilling in, waving my handker chief and watching her oat of eight D'ye see?" "I do, sir. "Well, I'm too busy to humbug about here; stock to buy, biz to at tend to. She's a little near-sighted, so I'll just engage you to wave this hand kerchief instead.

Had Had Experience. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 19 September 1914
Had Had Experience. It was at a police-court, near a gar rison town in the West of England, and the prisoner was charged with being drunk and disorderly, and fight ing in the street. He was a fine, 'well-built, strapping young fellow, but evidently an old stager, for the magistrate, after in flicting a fine, which was paid by a friend in court, asked him if he had any work to do. Prisoner replied that he had not. "You seem to be brought here very often for assaulting and fighting. Why don't you go for a soldier?" "Not me; not if I know it," replied prisoner, quickly. "I did go for one j once, and he very nearly strangled me." The poetry of Japan finds expres sion in its advertising. For example: "Our wrapping paper is as strong as the hide of an elephant. Goods forwarded with the speed of a can non-ball. Our silks and satins are as soft as the cheeks of a pretty woman, as beautiful as the rainbow. Our parcels are packed with as much care as a young married woman takes of her husband...

MAKE-UP YOUR MIND. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 19 September 1914
MAKE UP YOUR MIND. Don't grumble or fume when tough work lies ahead, But make up your mind, man, to do it! Show courage and pluck, don't cow ard's tears shed, If quickly you'd see yourself through it.

THE SLEEP OF CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 19 September 1914
1 THE SLEEP OF CHILDREN. I A healthy infant will sleep nearly twenty hours out of the twenty-four during its first month. This it will do without rocking, and it is a pity, to teach a child to expect you to rock it to sleep; it occupies time and does the child no good. The other habit of walking with It until it chooses to fall asleep is even worse. Begin as you mean to go on; lay it down awake, and, if Nature re quires it, sleep will come; .f not, 110 rocking can force it. Bui this should be taught from the beginning, and bad habits of this kind, :ia a rule, begin with the nurse, and are in full force before the mother has a ciiance to exercise her authority. The baby should not be rocked, nor should it be placed in a swinging cradle. Train him from the first to sleep in a stationary bed, and put a tiny hair pillow under his head. He should always be placed on his right side, and care should be taken that the luce is never covered. Sound development is next to im possible unless th...
Scarsdale and Smythesdale Boroughs. PROPOSED AMALGAMATION. CONFERENCE TO BE HELD. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 19 September 1914
Ssaisnais ana smitWais Boroiigtis. PROPOSED AMALGAMATION. CONFERENCE TO BE HELD. Abortive conferences have been held between the SjarsJale and Smythesdale borough councils on the question of amalgamation of the two boroughs, and it has now been decided to hold another conference tc again discuss the vexed question. Indications point to the face that unless some determined and definite action is taken buth boroughs will merge into Grenvilla shire. Bin amalgamation iiself of the boroughs will not solve the problem. They are faced with the question of fin ance, and the question of paramount importance to be dealt with is—Oaa both boroughs by amalgamation and under existing conditions, raise the necessary amount ? One way to overcome the diflifulty is to raise the shilling rate to reach the re quired sum. If the two boroughs merge into Grenville shire an in creased rate will have to be paid, and it is considered in many quar ters that the best course to pursue would be for the rate of t...

MALAY SUPERSTITIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 19 September 1914
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 hla 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 III no one could be more solicitous. The house and the village are ransacked to find the cause 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 he will prob-ibly call for "female cocoa-nut." Taking then a knife of a peculiar shape, he muticrs incantations in a forgotten tongue and proceeds to shave the nut. If the person who has bewitched the child is living in the house ha will awake the next morning with a skull as bald as the cocoanut itself. Sympathy that begins and e...

B iuuw, I'CIIUSHEI) EVEItY 3ATDRDAY MORNING [Registered at the General Post Office Melbourne, for transmission by post as a Newspaper.] Saturday, September 19, 1911 " What preparation cau be usefully given in the elemeutary school for those who are destined to occupy themselves in the detailed work of commercial life ?" The topic is one on which clear thinking is needed. It is not to be disposed of by the enunciation of this or that dogma as to the functions ot an elementary school. The elementary school may be used for whatever purposes the community thinks fit. Its curricu lum may be as limited or as exten sive as the community may deter mine. Specialists will always be heard clamouring for the inclusion' of their favourite speciality. There ia no subject which could not bo taught in an elementary way in an elementary school; and so long as we consider each subject by itself a plausible case can b9 made out for most of them. But tha real question is "What can be done most satisfac...
