Unlucky Thirteen. PARNELL'S SUPERSTITION. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 23 October 1914
Unlucky. Thirteen. TARNELI/S SUPERSTITION". Farnell was a singularly super stitious man, and the stories told of him in this connection in Mr. Barry O'Brien's "Life" are confirm ed by Mrs. Farnell in her book on her husband. . Mr. O'Brien narrates a story of him which is of particular interest in view of Mrs. Parnell's "Life." Parnell believed that the number 18 was unlucky. He would not sleep in a room numbered 13, and on one occasion, when he had been by mischance put in a room bearing that number, he created a terrible disturbance when he dis covered what had happened, and ac cused the landlord of the inn of a desire to bring, misfortune on him. On another occasion he was at a dinner party, and one of the guests, Mr. O'Brien states, had to be sent away from the table because there were thirteen persons present. The superstitious may be interested in reading this to learn from Mrs. Parnell that she was the thirteenth child of her parents ! One of the striking features about Parnel...

Miracles of Faith-healing. CURING BY SUGGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 23 October 1914
Miracles of Faith-healing. CUBING BY SUGGESTION. Howover sceptical one may be re garding the powers of faith-healers, who have, particularly of late years, been subjected ito a great deal of ad verse criticism, and in some cases ridicule, by people who refuse to recognise the sinccrJty ot their be liefs, there can be no doubt, in view of tho recent report of tho Clerical and Medical Committee, that faith healers &lt;have brought about some wonderful cures. | It Is impossible, for instance, to dotibt tho word of Lord Sandwich, who was a playmate of King Ed ward at Windsor Oastle in his Eton days, and who has done such mag nificent work in relieving distress among children in the shuns. Lord Sandwich is a great beliovor in faith-healing, and says that he has cured a great many people of af fections such as cancer and blind ness by the "laying on of hand* (and prayer." His lordship confessed a short I time ago, during a remarkable } s- eech ho delivered at the Univer sity Colle...

PART 2. CHAPTER HI.-(Continued.) As he turned to enter the tavern he beard tbe clear notes o£ a bugle floating down from the heights. ; What story it told was evident, for there was a sudden hustling and cxcitoment 'among the uniformed guardians of the citadel. . Officers appeared buc'cling on swords, horses were brought, hastily forth, into the saddles of which sprang valiant sol diers ; and, lo 1 in an incredibly brief apace of time a company of fully fiVQ score men lined up to re ceive the great commanding general, whose special signal had aroused the sleepy camp. Then the three horsemen appeared in view, tbe general saluted officers nnd men, and remained in consulta tion for' a short time, during which Dngdale was thrilled to sec them all look in his direction and laugh. His annoyance "was evident as he stalked into tbe inn.

Simplon Tunnel Flood. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 23 October 1914
Simplon Tunnel Flood. Beep tiown in tho heart of the SiznploB Alps lies a big unseen lake, upon which rests a super pressure of 13,000ft. of towering rocks. The greatest engineering feat achieved during the ^boring of tho Simplon tunnel was that of getting under control thie mighty springs of hot water that burst up from the lake, and directing the gushn ing stream to the, outer part of tho gallery by means of a huge steel aqueduct. This conduit suddenly burst ono afternoon recently at a spot ten miles inside, and a train, which was actually traversing the tunnel in the direction of Como wns well nigh swept oft the rails by the t force of the torrential outburst. Three Milan expresses bound for Paris were consequently held up at Pomodossola for eight hours. At the imminent risk of their Iivos, a gang of Italian workmen had to toil in tho darkness until nearly midnight, with the flood up to their . armpits, before* they suc ceeded in damning th? great water spout.
CHAPTER IV. THE AUTOCRAT OF THE BORDER PROVINCES. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 23 October 1914
CHAPTER IV. THE AUTOCRAT OF THE BORDER PROVINCES. Dugdale perhaps did not feel quite so gay as he looked. Something1 told him he was about to encounter one who was destined to have more or less to do with his future, so for as it might bo connected with that of the fair fugitive. And the reputation of the grim old fire-eater, as woll as the appearance of his square jaws, was enough to provo that any one who ran up against him mu^t expect to encoun ter a tough proposition. There was bat little time to whip his wits into line and decide upon what tactics he should use. Ho knew Gratechefl to be a tiger in battle, and shrewdly concluded that while such a man might rage at first to find his will defied, ho could not but secretly respect1 an antagonist' who refused to bend before him, and who proved a focman worthy of bis steel. It was a bold game Dugdale set out to play, in which ho depended on other powers to assist him. The lieutenant led him across to tho fortress or citadel; night wa...

Infectious Diseases Hospital. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 23 October 1914
? * Infectious Diseases Hospital. At the meeting of Malvern council on Monday night South Melbourne couucil drew attention to the want of accommodation at some hospitals for cases of illnesssuperveningon measles, and that the cmiitoil was of opinion that provision should be made at the Infectious Diseases Hospital for the reception of these cases. Cr Wiiks said he thought the matter should remain in abeyance pending consideration by the Infec tious Disents Hcspital Board. Cr Murray (a medical man) pointed out that illness supervening on measles was never such as should he treated at an infectious diseases hos pital. He regarded it as "rank, downright murder" to send a case of pneumonia to such a hospital. The proper place, in his opinion, for patients suffering from such an illness was in tents in the Alfred Hospital. It was resolved to notify South Melbourne council that the council's opininn was on the lines of. the remarks of Ors Wilks and Murray.

School for Brides, ? '' i The Cincinnati educational de partment proposes to start a school for brides, where future housewives may learn the elements of their craft, and to that extent make happy husbands.

Women on Horseback. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 23 October 1914
Women on Horseback. Among other things that men tell women they should not do, may be mentioned the practicc of rii ing astride, and the German Em peror has expressed a wish that officers' wives shall refrain from do ing so. For one thing, by riding astride the risk of being dragged when thrown is enormously decreased, though, perhaps, it may be easier to be thrown. This, however, only seerns to point to the fac.t that by riding astride ' women will become better riders. To sit on a side-saddle cannot be healthy-certainly not as good as sitting, properly balanced, on a man's saddle. From the horse's point oi view there can be no doubt that the side-saddle is an abomination. With the exception of really first class lady riders the balance is all wrong, and the girths have to be tightened to stand the strain in consequence. In the big, wild countries of the world girls and women may be seen riding in the same way, and with as much ease and grace, as men.

This is how Mr. Cobb de scribes Mr., Kipling: "He has a big jaw, and he Wears shiny glasses and shows his teeth like Theodore Roosevelt, and he's a short man j and blocky, with a big, strong | hand." Mr. Kipling, in a walk after lunch, said he didn't know birds well, though he was fond of them, but he knew trees. "I wish you would stay until after dinner/' said the poet to his guest. "I'd like you to hear a nightingale that comes every evening to our garden. I'd like you to compare him with your mocking-bird. Tell me about the mocking-bird-what's he like ?" nMt. Cobb said the Southern mock ing-bird was the troubadour of the woods, a licentious scoundrel, who left Mrs. Mocking-bird at homo with the little ones and went serenading j other, bird-beauties-but withal, a fellow with romance in bis soul, a true poet.

Struck by Lightning. Last summer in Franco was one of the most stormy remembered for some years. An intensely tragic event took place during the mili tary manoeUTrcs, at Cercotte, where a strong body of troops was tak ing part in tho evolutions going forward. A detachment of the 45th artil lery-and it may be said that the French artillery is admitted to be the finest in the world-had been told oft to collect th« empty shells and whilst engaged in this work, was overtaken by a- heavy thunder storm. Tho officer in charge, or dered the 'soldiers to seek refuge under tho fire-rango shelters.-- They promptly made for the spot, but had hardly reached it when there was a terrific crash and a blinding rush of flame, tho enclosure in which the troops stood, being partially de molished. Most of the soldiers were thrown ' to the ground, and more or less ser ' iouely injured. When order was re stored, it was found that 12 of tho men were seriously injured. They were rushed off to the military h...
