Inside the Desk. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914

Inside the Desk. I was not married long before-I dis covered that my wife was blessed with the ordinary amount of woman's curiosity. One day, while I was out; she em braced the opportunity to_ pick the lock of my desk. I do not know what she expected to find, but I think she must have 'been disappointed to dis cover that it was full of nothing but biscuits. When I came home in the evening she said, "George, what is the meaning of all those biscuits that I saw "in your desk to-day ?" I replied: "Well, we're married now, so I may as well tell you tbe truth. When we were courting, when ever I told you a lie (which was some times necessary) I made a mental note of it. And when I went home I Would throw a biscuit into my desk. One biscuit per lie. If, during the day or during the evening, I told you half a-dozen lies, I threw .in half-a-dozen biscuits. So these biscuits simply re present the number of lies I have told you* during our courtship. She said: "Well, my goodness! If I had only...

THE HOUR OF DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914

THE HOUR OF DEATH. Most people will tell you': that mora - persons die between' the hours of mid night and five in the morning than at ,. any other time, but this is a great mis t^ke, Hhough one which is believed in by 'doctors as well as the general pub .lic. « Recently, in- one of the big hospi tals, statistics were collected of the hour at which patients died. If there had been any truth in the generally accepted belief that most people die in the early hours these statistics would have shown it, for the deaths of no fewer than 15,000 patients were re corded. It was found, indeed, that more peo •ple died between'six in'the morning . and six at night than during the other twelve hours of the day. Again, from two to six in the afternoon there were sixty-six more deaths than from two to six in the morning. In the cases of people suffering from chronic diseases the greatest number died at four o'clock in the afternoon, closely followed by two and five in the afternoon. Six o'clock in...

He Meant to Compliment. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914

He Meant to Compliment. A wedding breakfast was given by a substantial farmer blessed with five daughters, the eldest being the bride, when a neighbor, a young farmer, who was honored with an invitation, thinking no doubt he ought to say something smart and complimentary upon the-event, addressing the bride groom, said: "Well, you have got the pick of the batch!" The countenances of the four unmarried ones, as may be imagined, were a study.

Federal Election. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914

Federal Election. There has been no material change in the figures for the Senate Poll and the election of the Labor six is a fore gone conclusion. Senator M'Coll heads the Liberal six, but a week ago he was 35,000 behind the last, of the Labor six, and the position remains practically unaltered, although the returns to hand during the week must have_ been from country districts. It now seems pretty certain that the new Senate will be comprised of 31 Labor members and 5 Liberal, so that in this direction Labor will hold full sway, and the same remarks apply to the House of Repre sentatives, where the figures stand— Labor 41, Liberal 33, Independent 1. There is just a possibility that a couple of seats may still fall to the Liberals, but in any case the Laborites have a good working majority, and there will be none of the regrettable deadlock business of the last Parliament. As remarked above, Labor will have full sway and they will, during the next three years, have every opportunit...

On Monday evening of last week the Goulburn Weir hall was the scene of great festivity, the occasion being that over 100 of Mrs Cunneen's (Bailieston) friends met in a social way to spend a few pleasant hours with her prior to her departure from the district, in which nearly the whole of her life has been spent. The hall looked resplendent with bunting and other patriotic symbols and presented quite a festive appearance. The event took the form of a concert, which was followed by a dance. The chief vocal performers for the concert were — Mr G. R. Brown, who opened the proceedings with " Rule Brittania," the audience heartily joining in the chorus. During the evening he also rendered in very fine style, " Molly Muir," "Because" and " The Minstrel Boy," and each item was heartily ap plauded.

THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914

THE WAR. During the week the allied forces operating against the Germans in France have kept the eneuiy busy in the en deavor to get out of the way and regain a footing in his own country. When war was first declared Germany was quite ready—had been ready to strike the blow for some considerable time but then she made a fatal blunder in assuming that no one else was ready. Knowing full well the strength of the fortresses on the French side of the Franco-German frontier, Germany at once, without any compunction what ever, violated all international law and treaty by forcing a passage through Belgium, and it was the Kaiser s boast that his troops would be in Paris in one week. This was easier said than done. The Belgians made an heroic fight, but, once through, the Germans were soon almost to Paris. , Day by day one read that the Allies had fallen back, and the excuse given was that it was a strategical move. Military experts were of opinion that the Germans were going too fast, and q...

HUMAN HAIR TELLS RACIAL ORIGIN. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914

HUMAN HAIR TELLS RACIAL ORIGIN. Scientists are able, by the use of the microscope, to tell from a single human- hair to what great racial divi sion the original wearer belonged. If m a cross section of the hair is ellipti cal', the man was black; if round, the man was yellow or red; while the white mail's hair is oval. ^ The Australian native has hair with the- least, diameter, the bushman of Africa the next, then the American Indian,, the Chinese, the white races of Europe, and lastly the Japanese, ihe coarsest of all. The beard of a white man is fifty per cent, thicker than his hair, and is almost identically the size of the hair of the chimpanzee. The strength of human hair is, as a rule, in direct proportion to its thickness. ■ It is believed that otter skins have been extensively dyed in imitation of ; the fashionable seal. They are cheap er than'the latter, and when carefully and newly prepared can be distinguish ed only by experts.
