TALK LOVE-NOT DRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 5 September 1914
TALK LOVE-NOT DRES8. Girls, don't "talk dress" to youi iweetheart. Don't stand him In front of a shop window and ask him if he likes this shade for a walking skirt or that for a blouse. Don't ask him if he doesn't think that this year's hats arc-.just "it." And, above all, don't asu- him if he properly appre ciates the new dress you have just put on for his especial benefit. I do not mean to imply that you will nec essarily bore him. The chances are about even that he will be quite In terested. His answers will almost certainly amuse. But the point is. you are doing the wrong tiling. You are unwitingly doing your best to kill his interest in your appearance. To a woman a dress is a thing in itself, to be criticised apart from its effect on the wearer. She can, In fact, ignore the wearer altogether. A man cannot. A man cannot, in his mind, separate a dress from the girl who is wearing it. Of course he will often say lie likes you better in one dress than another; and he literally mea...

The Exhibition Aquarium A VERITABLE FAIRYLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 5 September 1914
I The Exhibition Aquarium A VERITABLE FAIRYLAND. Visitors to Melbourne this spring would do well to make a special note of the Aquarium as one of the city sights to be visited. Twenty-six years ago the first " fish-house " in Austra lia was started, and since then the establishment has been so developed that to-day it is, in reality, a fair sized exhibition of arts, manufac tures, sciences, animal life, curios, and curiosities, further enlivened by daily musical and other entertain ments. Taking the several sections of a very comprehensive collection of at tractions in something like the order which would be followed by a visi tor, the Picture Salon first claims at tention, with its 200 paintings, statues, etc. Paintings by Rembrandt, Berg hem, Bridgford, and a host of well known artists adorn the walls, and town and country visitors alike can congratulate themselves anew upon the happy solution of the railway trouble before a speaking likeness of the late Sir Thos.

WHY WE ARE RIGHT-HANDED. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 5 September 1914
WHY WE ARE RIGHT-HANDED. One of the professors at a well known agricultural college has figured it out that if you are left-handed it is a sign that your ancestors were not good fighters. says he. "Only one in every twenty Is left-handed. Why are people right handed? They may have been born that way, it is true; but why? "Away back in the beginning the chief occupation of man was fighting. In battle he carried a shield in one hand and a weapon in the other. It shield, but the quick action required by the hand and arm which did the fighting soon developed that arm. It also, developed the nerves and tha half "of the brain that governed the right side of the body. Those who shielded their left side-htus protect ing the heart-were the ones who usu ally came out victorious. Down through the ages this selection con tinued. the right hand gradually be coming more proficient." "Ma, what is meant by the Progres sive party?" "The Progressive party, my dear? Why, that's where all the partners ...
ONE LIFE FOR MANY. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 5 September 1914
ONE LIFE FOR MANY. Many heroic deeds have been done by British sailors, but no act .was truly more heroic than the voluntary martyrdom suffered by James Marr, a sailor on board a vessel named The Rip, on July 15, 1873. Biefly stated, the facts are as fol low:-The Rip was caught in a squall, and was quickly in difficulties. James i»arr was astride the gaff at the mo ment when a great wave caught the vessel, sweeping everything off the deck, and carrying away the main mast. After this there was only one chance for those on board, and that was, of course, to cut everything clear. But James Marr was clinging to the broken spar, and his mates saw thai if they cut the tangle away poor Marr must go with it. They hesitated. But not so James Marr. Seeing that the sacrifice of one might save many, he gave the signal himself, shouting, "Chop away, mates!" and "Good-bye, lads!" thus making for himsoif n name as a real hero.
CHAPTER IX. SHADOWED. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 5 September 1914
o CHAPTER IX. SHADOWED. It was a late hour for a visitor or a"*client, and the two men glanced at each other with questioning, surprise, with a half-startled look on their faces that owed something to the mysterious climax their conversation had reached. "Who can it be ?" muttered the solicitor. ? Then, as the rap was repeated im patiently, he rose and opened the door. "Mr. Charteris !" he exclaimed. "Sorry to trouble you at this hour Porwood," said Cecil Charteris, en tering the room. "I have been dining with Major Clifton, and missed the ten-twenty train. I had three-quar . ters of an hour to spare till the next one, and I remembered that I wanted to see you about several matters Ah, you are not alone !" "No ; Mr. Fleming is with me." "We have met before," said Char teris. He nodded stiffly and coldly to Lance who had meanwhile quite re covered his self:posseesion. Whatever he thought of. the young barrister's presence;in. Norwich, and in the soli citor's office, was masked under ...

PRINCE OF ROGUES A ROMANCE OF ENGLAND AND AUSTRALIA. By, W. Murray Graydon, Author ot . , "Tlie Heir of the Loudans," "Mat thew Quin," etc.., etc. PART 5. Five minutes later Lance was alone, watching the girl's slim figure wind ing away irom him among the state ly, old trees. When she was out o! sight he turned back as he had come and trudged through, the twilight and the fragrant hedges to Wroxham station. There was a train to Nor wich very soon, but when he arrived there he found that he must wait several hours for the London express. He got some supper in the station restaurant, and then went out into the ancient town, where his early years had been spent, and where ..how well he recalled the day !-he had first seen Violet Gharteris. He met and greeted a few acquain tances, and at length he found him self in the historic old quarter of the town known as Tombland. Here ?memories crowded thick upon him, bringing a lump to his throat. A church clock near by struck ten, and he. was a...

Webber, M.L.A., (the retiring Mayor) was voted to the chair. MAYORAL ALLOWANCE. Cr Morgan moved that the Mayoral allowance be £200, the same as last year. Seconded by Cr O'Conuell and carried uuanimously. THE NEW MAYOR. &nbsp; As previously announced in our last issue, councillors at a private meeting on the previous Thursday evening had decided to honor the retiring Mayor with a second term of office, and consequently the motion to that effect, moved by Cr Fear and seconded by Cr Flevill, was carried without discussion. The formal ceremony of investing the Mayor with the robes of office &nbsp; was dispensed with, as the time honored mantle which for years past did service on such occasions had received special attention from the moths, aud was not presentable enough to adorn the Mayoral...

CHAPTER XII. A FRUITLESS INTERVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 12 September 1914
CHAPTER XII. A FRUITLESS INTERVIEW. The man wheeled round with a start, perhaps thinking that Ohar teris had given him into custody. When he saw who had touched him his face showed confusion and sur prise. He raiBed his hand to his forehead and made a military Balute. "Francois . Lestocq, vI believe ?" "Monsieur is right," was the re ply. "But I do not remember" "No, I am a stranger to you. A I moment ago you stopped and spoke ? to a gentleman. I chanced to over hear the conversation." "And what then, monsieur?" "I was interested," said Lance. "I should like to ask you whether you J really knew the man, or whether it ' was a case of mistaken identity ?" j' The Frenchman's features assumed a cunning expression. "Monsieur has reasons for asking?" he said. , j "Yes, private ones." "And if I was able to provide mon sieur with information ?" The question was not to be. misun i derstood. Lance, lopking closely at the man, saw that he was evidently in very low straits, and that lie must ha...

THE WAYS OF SHARKS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 12 September 1914
THE WAYS OF SHARKS. Where the story originated that a ihark was obliged to turn on its lide or back to take its food is har5 :o say. Like many other popular ;i.rcrs, it has been copied by ob« .vriter from another, most of whooi pro'',ib'y never saw a shark, its ori gin being lost in the mists of an tiquity. Many such legends are cur rent : that of the hoo;> snake ; ,thc belief that if a person is bitten by a log he will go mad when the dog does, no matter if it is years after wards ; that the alligator can raise its upper jaw ; that the white-headed ;agle is a bat 1 hjaded bird. Truth, it is said, li s at the bottom of a ivell, beins too modest, perhaps, to appear among men. As to sharks the writer has taken many of them, with hand-line and rod and reel ; the dusky shark, the shovel-nose, the hammer head, and the nurse Bbark ; often in elcar, shallow water where his movements could be seen, and he has never seen one of the Bpecies turn over in taking the bait, but it was taken as...
