CHAPTER VIII. Missing. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 15 July 1914

CHAPTER VIII. Missing. Angus Galbraith pressed the tear moist handkerchief- to his face, " and the big mail sobbed out his soul in the darkness of the night. In the silence he returned to the house de bating within himself as to •what he should do. His mother was standing at the door, tind as he approached, she ran to meet him. "Oh, Angus," she cried, "where is Elsie?" "Elsie?" he said, and.his heart gave a great bound. "Is she not in <her room?" "No, Angus; and this is your do ing? What have you done with the girl?" "I have not seen her, mother," he said, restraining himself with a great effort, "I—I think she must be with— Eric." The old woman's face cleared. "Oh, then, it'll be all right," she said, a little more brightly. "Angus, you bet ter away to bed, I'll wait up for them." He could hardly restrain his sobs as he noticed how the mention of Eric had made all things right to his mother. But he said, "No, mother; I'm not going to bed. I want you to go. You are tired ...

WHEN NOT TO MARRY. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 15 July 1914

WHEN NOT TO MARRY.. Do not marry to reform a man. He who would not reform before mar riage is not likely to do so aftervards. There is no more fallacious hope a girl can entertain than that of chang ing an unreforined ralte into a good husband. Don't marry a man to whom "Yes" has been said in a moment of mistak en sympathy or sentimental ecstasy. Symptby is not !ovo, neither Is ec stasy; the latter when carried to ex cess is a form of hysteria, and both are poor foundations for matrimony. .Don't marry a man who has only his love to recommend him; there are other qualities requisite in husbands quite as important as this.. A head is wanted as well as a heart; a guide, a comforter, a stay, a friend as- well as an impassioned Romeo spouting lava-like sentences of devo tion. Very often the more lava-like Romeo is the less likely to earn suf ficient to pay the butcher's bill. Don't marry a man for a livelihood; there are better, safer, and more hon orable ways by which women can earn a l...

Her Precious Thumb. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 15 July 1914

Her Precious Thumb. . A lady sued a railway company for £5000 for tlio loss of her thumb, which luul been destroyed in a col lision, and the opposing counsel open ed the defence with the words: "Five thousand pounds for the loss of a thumb! Well, gentlemen of the jury, the only justification I can see for so exorbitant a claim is that it was the thumb with which the lady kept her husband under." To keep cheese for some time, and prevent it becoming mouldy or dry, wrap it up in a cloth damped with vinegar and keep it in a dish.

WOMAN'S WORLD. KEEPING YOUR LIPS FROM SLIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 15 July 1914

WOMaK'3 world. KEEPING YOUR l.|ps FROM SLIPS. In home and social life generally, gossip should be leaved as an enemy, and not bo tolerated as a welcome guest. It is ever g0 much safer and better to talk of things rather than persons, thus preventing that enemy, ill-natured gossip, from coming in. Make it a rule, and let it be strictly observed, not to say anything about the faults of another unless there is absolute necessity for' you to do so. This necessity way arise, and your own judgment can guide you about the matter. But where it can be avoided, do not talk of the faults or evil doings of others. Why, indeed, should you do so? You know yourself that you have faults, few or many, and that there are many things you may have done which you prefer should not be repeat ed. Well, then, exercise the same charity to others that you would have extended to yourself. Another thing to bear in mind Is that, if you talk of what is to the dis advantage of another, what you say will doubtless...

V.R.C. STEEPLECHASE MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 15 July 1914

V.R.C. STEEPLECHASE MEETING. Midwinter to many country resi dents is an even more enjoyable time than spring, since though the . fair scene, ,Wheh birds sang out their mellow _t" lay, And winds were soft and woods were " T_ gray," . lids disappeared in favor of sterner, wilder weather;' yet in numberless .eases there is a slight cessation of ■work just about that time. As a consequence, the great. steeplechase meeting, which specially appeals to country racegoers, affords a splendid opportunity for a visit to Melbourne, when pastoralists, farmers and their wives can put in a pleasant and pro fitable fortnight in the great metro polis, at the same time taking in the three splendid days' racing provided by the V.R.C. at Flemington. There ihe club has been busy since the au tumn in rounding off the extensive im provements which have been made during the last year or two, and visi tors during the first week in July will be surprised and pleased at the fair picture presented to them.

ENGINEERING SWALLOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 15 July 1914

ENGINEERING SWALLOWS. A colony of bank swallows taught a young but observing engineer how to build a tunnel that his more learned superiors had refused to undertake. North of Burlington Vermont, U.S.A., lies a broad, sandy plain high above the level of Lake Cham plain,. through which the Central Rail road was to be carried by a tunnel. The sand, destitute of moisture, woul'l not cohere; but crumbled away as soon as an excavation was made. After several costly trials the engin eers decided that the tunnel was im practicable. A young man in the engineer's office said he could tunnel the sank bank at a small cost. He said he could build the tunnel for so many dollars a running foot; but that he couldn't expect the railway people to act upon his opinion when so many American and European; engineers had declared the project impracticable. The managers, however, gave him a contract to build fifty feet of the tunnel, on the face of the sandbank he marked the line of an arch larger than the...

SHEEP FARMING FLUKE IN SHEEP: ITS CAUSE AND PREVENTION. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 15 July 1914

SHEEP FARMING FLUKE IN SHEEP: ITS CAUSE AND PREVENTION. ■The disease affecting sheep and known as "fluke" is variously .de scribed in different parts as "rot," "poke," "bane." The disease is due to the presence in the liver of a worm, in shape like a fluke fish, and hence its common name. This worm or fluke is about an inch in length and half an inch at its greatest width. Its presence in the liver produces disease of that organ, and the syhiptoms shown by the sheep can be traced to changes caused in the liver by the fluke. llow dftes the fluke-get into the liver? Flukes in the liver produce eggs, and these eggs pass with the bi'e into the intestine, and are vpTded with the dung. The eggs hatch out side the body, and give rise to small creatures that in-no way resemble the fluke. They are capable of movement in water, and, therefore, damp, moist places are favorable to their develop ment. In such places certain minute snails usually abound, and in the bod ies of these snails the cre...

FOR THE LIVER. People who suiter from liver dis orders will find (ho following letters very interesting . From Sirs. Ellen Waters, Forest Range, South Australia. "Twenty years ago I was very- ill. [ could not keep my food down, not even a drink of water. I was bad like this for nearly three months.

THE BONES OF LIGHT AND HEAVY HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 15 July 1914

THE BONES OF LIGHT AND ' HEAVY HORSES. Definite information concerning dif- j ferences ibetweeu the bones of light and heavy horses has been obtained by B. Hardt, of Jena University, Ger- j many. I I Upon chemical analysis of many . specimens of metacarpus or front can non bones, he found that on the whole the boneB of draught horses contain more' organic matter and less mineral matter than those of'liglit horses. Tliere are also some minor differ ences in composition, 'but he conclu ded that there are greater differenco? in form and strength than in the chem ical composition of the bones of the two types. This supports the common state ment of horsemen that the bones of light horses are generally harder than those of draught horses, for the hard ness of bone and its strength are ; known to increase with additional per centages of mineral matter.

DISEASE IN AMBUSH. GERMS ROUTED FROM THE LAUNDRY. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 15 July 1914

. DISEASE IN AMBUSH. GERMS ROUTED FROM TIIE LAUNDRY. It is only diseases that are infectious that can lie in ambush, ready to launch death amongst the inmates of a home," and when we search the home for the readiest place of ambush xve find it in the laundry. This is a statement of fact easily provable: the laundry claims and cleanses every week' the clothes we wear, our bed, table, kitchen, and bath linen, handker chiefs, towels and curtains. Nothing absorbs and carries the germs or seeds of disease so readily as these; to ambush the ambushing disease germ therefore we must begin in the laundry. Next as to the method: mere cleansing is not enough, for some disease germs may laugh at boiling water, and ;may even breed in commoner sorts of soapsuds. The only way to deal, with the disease germ is to.kill it, becausc its life is its power to infcct, and only when dead is it harmless: so we must not only begin with the laundry, but must find a laundry soap which is also a strong disinfe...

A BROTHER'S LOVE Published by arrangement with Cassell & Co. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER VI. The Poisoned Arrows. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 15 July 1914

A BROTHER'S LOVE By GRAHAM BROWN, Author of "The Soul of Lucille," "The League of the Sacred Scarab." etc. Published by arrangement with Cassell- &amp; Co. All Riglits Reserved. CHAPTER VI. The Poisoned Arrows. Angus Galbraith sat- down by the little stove with the -words of Eric, his' brother, ringing in his . ears. "I love' Elsie Bisset." He passed his hand across his brow as it to free himself from some op pressive incubus. For the moment he was too stunned to think. Never for a moment did a doubt of Elsie enter his mind. She had looked him in the face and said, "Angus, I love you," and that was enough. Angus Galbraith, the silent fisher man, was a large-souled man. Yet he had a nature as simple as a child's, and he would as soon have thought of doubting the word of the girl he loved as of doubting his own exist ence. And he loved his brother with a mighty affection.- To him Eric was the perfection of manhood, and he had seen nothing or the feet of clay. I "Oh, why did Etsiie...

A steamboat was stranded in tlie' Mississippi, and the captain could not get her off. Eventually a hard-look ing fellow came on board and said: "Captain, I understand you want a pilot?" The captain asked, "Are you a pi lot?" "Well, they call me one." "Do you know where the sandbanks are" ? "No, sir." "Well, how do you expect to take roe out of here if you don't know where they are?" "I know where they ain't!" was the reply. Contention among civilised people is a crime. Let each seek another's good rather than his own, and the end has been reached. But just how an other's good is to be sought may not be so easily determined. The ordin ary zealot thinks it can best be brought, about by forcing his opinions upon bis fellow. A local band was one day playing in Scotland,, when an old native came ud and asked the bandmaster what the piece was they were rendering. "That's 'The Death of Nelson,'" re plied the bandmaster. "Aye, man," remarked the native, "ye hae given him an awfu* death!"
