How to Injure Your Town. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 28 October 1914

How to Injure Your Town. Run it down to visitors. Look sorry when a stranger talks to you of buying property in it. Refuse to see merit in any scheme unless you are first rubber I in it. Don't invest. Show your distrust by refusing to Jay out any money in it. Let your tongue wag idly about your neighbors without knowing the facts. Cut those whom in your vanity you think beneath you, and split up into classes and cliques. Refuse to advertise in your local paper. People sum up your town from its advertisement sheets. Then you will effectually damn your town and district.

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES, i I • - . . I 'God's Ally," otherwise Kaiser Bill of Germany, is a person who must have a very ■ extraordinary sense of .humor. Not so long ago he designed a pack of cards upon which could bo • distinguished the well-known features of:many crowned and notable person- ! ages of the world. Queen Victoria, the Dowager Queen of Italy, the late Empress Elizabeth of Austria, and the Czarina played the respective parts of Queen of Hearts, Diamonds, Clubs and Spades. The Kaiser ranged him self beside Queen Victoria, inasmuch as he appeared as—forsooth!—the King of Hearts! Leopold of Bel: gium was King of Diamonds, Hum bert of Italy, King of Clubs; while Pope Leo XII. figured as King of Spades. Four of the prettiest actress- : es of Europe capped the tricks in their capacity of aces; while the four selected knaves were supplied by Gladstone, Crispi, Bismarck and Wal deck-Rousseau! It would be inter esting to know what changes the Kaiser would now make in the various rol...

STATE POLITICS. MR. NICHOLS AT MOE. Mr E. Nichols (selected Labor candi date for the Walhalla seat) delivered a preliminary address in the Moe Mecha nics' Library a short time since, a curtailed report of which appears below. Mr D. Sheppard officiated as chair man. At the outset, Mr Nichols said he wished to conduct the contest free from personalities, which should not enter politics. He wished at all times for his supporters to give his opponents a fair hearing, free from interruption. That was.fair play, to which all were entitled. He then read the labor platform. Proceeding, Mr Nichols said that the { present system of working children's pensions was a bad one. In order to ; benefit, children first have to become semi-criminals. They have to appear before a court, and can then be bailed out by the mother, as wards of the State. During the Federal campaign he was surprised at there being no reference to the increased cost of government all over Australia. At the inception of Feder...

GERMAN SPIES INVADE ENGLANp. THEIR METHODS DESCRIBED. .^OW . INFORMATION IS GAINED. England, it is practically admitted, received special attention during the last few years from German spies, who took most daring risks. Six months ago one German agent was actually circularising British naval officers. His "employer" was; represented as a publishing firm about to revise a naval work of reference. There was, the letter explained, a "striking lack of news about tor pedoes." Would any British officer undertake to supply the much-wanted chapter? He' might remain anony mous, and the payment would be "extremely high." The same firm (name undisclosed) made frequent offers for articles on British submarines. Then one of the firm's "travellers" lived in style at Plymouth, entertain ed naval officers and their friends on his private yacht, and tried to obtain from them answers to certain lists of questions. Another agent was caught sketch ing the forts at Portsmouth. Yet another was the "old ...

WE MIGHT BE HAPPY THEN. A cottage by the sapphire sea (Some forty rooms will do), A yaclit done up in teak and brass To sail the briny blue, A stone garage, a limousine, A runabout or two, Some thoroughbreds for saddle use An aeroplane and you. A valet and a dozen maids, A chef to bake and brew, A bowling-alley, tennis-court, And first-class ocean view, A greenhouse several acres long For orchids rare and new, A kennel full of fancy pups, Ten million cash, and you. A correspondent writes:—I was at the "movies" the other night, and 1 saw what I think was the most de lightful piece of love-making my opti mistic eyes have yet lighted on.

A NAVVY POEM. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 28 October 1914

A NAVVY POEM. In the grim dead-encT lie lies With passionless, filmy eyes, English Ned, with a hole in his head, Staring up at the skies. The engine-driver swore, as often he swore before: "I whistled him back from the Gamin' track, And I couldn't do no more!" The ganger spoke through the 'phone: "Platelayer Seventy-one Got killed to-day on the six-foot way By a goods on the city run. "English Ned is his name, no one , knows whence he came; He didn't take mind of the road be hind, And none of us is to blame." Was that 10-year-old drummer-boy saved from the sunken cruiser Abo i kir one of the devil's own? The Temperance Alliance will hardly ad mit that it was a special Providence that set him afloat in the ship's rum tub. So one is forced back on the other explanation. A sailor swimming sturdily by asked, "Can I do anything for you, youngster?" "No thanks, old cocky," said the boy, cheerily. He knew that the man was busy, and therefore he didn't stop him. Any other time he would have...

THE MOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 28 October 1914

THE MOUTH. It is Ituskin who points out that ij the human race alone the mouth is a mark of beauty, and may be made tc convey a great deal of expression, even chough the lips are silent. The curve of a woman's lips can ex >ress, oh, so much! There is the jroud mouth, the cynical mouth, the sensual mouth, the affectionate mouth, ihe cruel mouth. Lips that tremble Dan tell more of grief than many .a spoken word. Lips that smile can il luminate a whole household. As a mode of expression the mouth has ever been a telling factor. As a mark of beauty the mouth can be cultivated. It needs no beauty doc tor's art to train it to pleasant lines. Teach it to smile. Refuse to let il 3ettle into hard, cynical lines. Give it 'he uplift and serenity that speak more plainly than words of peace and strength. By deliberate training the mouth can be made one of the most telling, most attractive, features of a personality.
