LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 July 1914
LOCAL AND GENERAL. KAI.V AND COLD.-Following the sharp frosts, thick fo«e, and euany days of last week, a change to dull weather net in on Monday, and inter mittent rain showerB were welsomed over-night. Lighter showers fell on Tuesday, which day was noteworthy to those having business outdoors by a piercing blast from across snow-capped summits. The rainfall in these parts was not heavy, 15 points being regis tered locally, but it should bo the means of staving-ofT bhe unpromising outlook that was arising, provided that ib is shortly supplemented by a more generous downpoar. TUNGA.MAII BRASS BAND.-In view of lbs approaching carnival at Wanga ratta, the members of the loc.il brass band are exercising much assiduity to practice, and are making marked ad vancement in concerted playing.

Are our Girls too Free. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 July 1914
Are our Girls too Free. The question of whether our girls of Australia and Now Zealand are allowed too much freedom ia raised by the editor of " Everylady's Journal," and auswcr«d in the July issu&lt;! by Professor Rmitoul, Mod erator of tho Presbyterian Church of Aus tralia; Mr Paris Ncsbitt, K.C.; Mr Higgs, M.P.; and Mrs Dr O'Hara. Professor Rcutoiil does not think that our girls are allowed too inuoh freedom. Mr Paris Nesbit does not think it would be possible to allow them too much freedom, and the Federal member for Capricornia believes that " a girl should havo liberty, providing parents take the trouble to advise of dangers that attend increased liberty. There is far more to be feared from bringing a child up us a plant in u hot-house, unexposed to any of the winds that blow. I think, iftthe parents will only take their girls into their confidence at an age when children aro able to appreciate advice on certain topics, that tho young women are bound to come out all ri...

II. "I'm awfully sorry," faltered Nancy; with a startled look in her lovely eyes,-"but what you ask is impossible. I cannot marry you. I hadn't the least idea " "But now you know you'll soon bring yourself to say 'Yes' - and 'Thank you,' too," said Austin Myers, in his most egotistical tone. "Why, it's a chance you'd never get again if you lived to be a hundred. I'm some body,"! am-and I mean to get to the very top! That's why I stuck out here for ten long years. I wanted the 'pile' to be big enough to float me over there in the old country, and it is. I'll settle a rattling good sum 011 you, and " "Please, please stop. I really am grateful for the honor you have' paid me," broke in Nancy, hurriedly, "but it is impossible. Do believe me, and never refer to the matter again." A dark flush crept over Myers's face, and the look was in his eyes which had made many a wretched underling cower. fie seized Nancy's wrist and held it in a fierce grip. "It can't he impossible, unless .here's s...
COURSING. FLUKE, A DISTRICT DOG. WINS THE WATERLOO CUP. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 July 1914
COURSING. FLUKE, A DISTRICT DOG. WINS THE WATERLOO CUP. The Victorian Coursing Club concluded their Waterloo Cnp meeting at Goelong last Friday, tho final being iu every way worthy of the importance of the stake. Fluke, like Astrakan two years ago, followed up his V.C.C. Derby success by accounting for tho older doga in the more important Waterloo Cup. Ho won all his courses in brilliant fashion, and clearly established his right to be classed among the truly great greyhounds of recent timss. Ha did not owe his success to anything but sheer merit, as there was a total absence of luck in all of his trials. Oil Friday, in the finals, Fiuko met Australian Swell in his first course. Nenr the escapes Fluke made a drive at the hare, and not noticing the close proximity of the fence crashed into it. it was thonght for a time that he was bidly hurt, but ho soon pulled round, and there did not appear to be much amiss with him when he went into the slips for the final. He WUB a pronounced fav...
III. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 July 1914
III. "Nonsense!" protested Austin My ers, pleasantly. "We'll travel back to gether. Grey lias told me your story, and 1 think you're a first-rate fellow. Don't worry about the fare. I'll stand the difference for the pleasure of your company. Who says romance is dead in these days? Why, you are a living witness to the contrary. I'm sure Miss Nancy agrees with me." Nancy flushed and smiled shyly at this raillery; then she sighed also, for in an hour's time lier lover, Kyrle Beaumont, was to start for Cape Town en route for England; and, al though he was to return by the next boat, yet even the short separation of a few weeks was a trouble to her. "You are too kind," replied Kyrle Beaumont, with a bow profound enough to indicate deep reverence, or possibly contempt. "My plans are already made and cannot be altered; my passage is taken. We shall part when we leave this house." And, turning rather abruptly away, he be gan to make his public adieux; it is more than probable he had already...

CONFESSIONS OF A LINER CHAPLAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 July 1914
CONFESSIONS OF A LINER CHAPLAIN. There is nothing that produces a feeling of speedy death quicker than sea-sickness. It is very rarely that anyone actually succumbs to it, but if a person suffers from it badly it is dif ficult to drive home the fact that re covery is certain. I have seen all the horrors of a deathbed scene enacted over people suffering from an acute attack. Knowing that in ninety-nine cases out of a hundred it leaves no serious effect, it is very difficult to assume that you are ministering to the dying. And at times a perfectly sincere effort in this direction will terminate in comedy. People lie in their bunks pale as death. The chap lain is fetched, and he is assured by the sufferer that burial at sea is a cer tainty. He is of another opinion, but maintains if possible a sympathetic tone. I confess to having cultivated many hypocritical looks and senti ments, which I have sometimes enjoy ed. One night I was called to the bunk ol an old man who had been mal de mer...

WANTED-WARREN HALE. THE STORY OF HOW A CRIMINAL DESIGN WAS SIDE-TRACKED BY AN ACT OF HEROISM. URGENTLY WANTED.-Mr. War ren Hale, gentleman, will hear of ; something greatly to his advantage by | communicating with Messrs. EmDiey, : Compton and Co., solicitors, of East cheap. I-Ie will also greatly relieve the mind of the man whose life he J saved at the risk of his own, a man | who admires his pluck and candor be yond measure. I tossed up the shilling-the last coin I possessed-under a lamp-post not fifty yards from the portico of the Tytherley Hotel. I caught it in my left hand and swung it on to the back of my right then I uncovered it. ' "Heads!" So I went to the Tytherley. To that spinning coiu I owe every thing that happened. Had it been "tails" I might be in the gutter, or in the grave, at this moment. I I ordered a whisky and soda and some Turkish cigarettes. I had been sitting there, delighting in the warmth and the glitter and the comfort for perhaps ten minutes when a. man,...
DOING, NOT TALKING. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 July 1914
DOING, NOT TALKING. What mankind is awaiting is the bro therhood of man; It's asked for, and prayed for, since e'er the world began. Men talk of it, they preach of it, from ev'ry point of view. But those who nobly practise it, their number is but few. Why wait until communities resolve to live it out? It's just by ones and twos and threes such work is brought about. Bach one of us has got a world tied up within his breast, And wluit we are and what we do should benefit the rest. True, "Laugh and the world laughs with you, weep and you weep alone," Dut that's not the creed that's needed to give the old world tone. Give cheer to the man who's strug gling, a hand-clasp to him who's down, Our heartiest grip reserved for the man who's under fortune's frown: Don't hold aloof when trial comes brotherhood's needed thou, For e'en the lonely and outcast still are brothers and men. .And living is better than preaching, words are empty things., Actions are just wanted, magic is borne 011 their ...
WITTY CHURCHMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 July 1914
WITTY CHURCHMEN. A study of the wits of the world re veals tlie filet that there is a fair pro portion of clergymen among them, and a very good illustration of tho powers of repartee on the part of clerical celebrities is afforded by an incident which happened when Bishop Boyd Carpenter was addressing an open-air meeting. An athiest asked the Bishop if he believed that Jonah was swallowed by the whale. When 1 go to heaven I will ask Jonah," said his lordship. "But supposing." the other persisted, "ho is not there." "Then you will have to ask him," was the quick re tort. At a farewell dinner to Dean John Gregg, just made bishop of Cork, a bottle of rich old Waterloo port, in stead of making a rapid circuit, rest ed before the guest of the evening. "Come," cried his grace of Dublin, from the head of the table, "though you are John Cork, you mustn't stop the. bottle." The bishop of Cork replied, "I see vour grace is disposed to draw me out. But though charged with Cork, I'm not going t...
