Eyebrows and Character. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 4 September 1914

Eyebrows and Character. It is now conceded that the Greek eyebrow is quite in accord with the conception, of mere phj'sical beauty in women. Like the rose bud mouth, it does not indicate the highest order of intelligence, and the arch is expressive al ways of greater sensibility and greater sense of character. Scant growth of the eyebrows in variably denotes lack of vitality, and external applications are use less to promote or produce a growth until the general health improves ; on the contrary, heavy, thick eye brows^ indicate a strong constitu tion and great physical endurance. They are not beautiful on a wo man's face, however much they may signify either mental or bodily vigour, and when they are not only heavy, but droop and meet at the nose, they are disagreeable, and are said to accompany an insincere and prying nature. Romantic w'oraen usually have a very well-defined arch in the centre of the eyebrow, while a sense of Humour is indicated in the arch nearer the nose. Long, ...

MITSON'S DOG. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 4 September 1914

EIITSON'S DOG. -3> Mitson's shop in our place has been closed for a week or so. Mit son Mas perfectly willing io have it open, hut circumstances rendered it necessary for him to suspend bu siness for a while. There had been a good many burglaries, and Mitson bought a dog to keop in his shop at night. The man that sold the dog said that its one strong peculiarity was its vigilance. So the man turned the dog loose in the shop, and Mitson locked up for the night and went home. "When he came down in the morn ing the dog flew at him as soon as he opened the door, and attempted to breakfast on Mr. Mitson's legs ; thereupon Mr. Mitson shut the door and sat down to think. Then ho went after the man who sold the dog ; but ho had gone out of town to see his aunt, and wouldn't be'back for a month. Mitson then undertook to coax the dog through the crack of the door ; but the ani mal still maniftsted a resolute de termination to chew Mitson's legs, and so Mitson closed the door again and bega...

THE RELIEF OF MAFEKING. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 4 September 1914

THE RELIEF OF MAFEKINC; . un May 4, 1800, Lord Roberts despatched Colonel Mahon-a cool headed Irishman-from Kimberley with a relief force numbering 9-40, to succour Mafeking, which was be ing so gallantly defended by Col onel Baden-Powell against the Boers. On the 11th Mahon reached rind left Vrybure, the half-way house be tween Kimberley and Mafekin x, and four days later, after some smart fighting and splendid marching, ef fected a juuetion with Colonel Flu tter-who, with 800 men from KHo desia, was advancing from the north Jan Muribi's, twenty miles west of Mafeking.

Strathcona's Cheque. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 4 September 1914

Strathcona's Cheque. 4 During his lifetime the lnte Lord Strathcona made two boasts-one that he never lost a paper once it got into his hands, and the other that he never received payment for his services to the Canadian Pacific Iuiilway. Ilis executors in going through his papers found on file uncashed cheques from tho Tacitic from the inception of the company until the time of his death, and they have now made claim on the company for the payment of these. The Ca nadian Pacific has announced that it will honour every cheque, so that the heirs to the estate will re ceive a considerably augmented sum. In the same way Lord Strath cona did not draw his salary as High Commissioner, and the added windfall of the heirs will run into many thousand pounds. "Globe."

Arapiles Shire Presidency CR R. G. M'CLURE ELECTED [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 4 September 1914

Arapiles Shire Presidency CR R. G. M-CLURE ELECTED The statutory meeting of the Arap iles Council was held on Tuesday. Cr Walter (retiring president) was voted to the chair. The president's allowance was fixed at £40 on the motion of Crs Elliot and Grant Election of President Cr Elliot said that their old friend, Cr M'Clure, had commenced his 25th year as councillor of the Arapiles Shire, and he was afraid that this would be his last year at.the table. He (Cr M'Clure) had been practically unopposed each time. It was there fore fitting that on account of his long service and the probability of it being his last year that he should be appointed president. He moved ac cordingly. Cr M'Clure had always proved himself a straight goer, and had paid great attention to his duties. When times were bad, and the presi . dent's allowance low, he, like other presidents, had often been out of pocket. Once, when he (Cr Elliot) had .been out of pocket after reduced allowance, Cr M'Clure, who was ; p...

THE FIRST CONVICTS OF BOTANY BAY. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 4 September 1914

THE FIRST CONVICTS OF BOTANY BAY. When Captain Fhilipp sailed for Botany Bay with a batch of con victs, on 3>fav 13, 1787, probably neither skipper, crew, nor prisoners imagined that they were making his tory. Vet the little fleet, with its 564 male nnd 192 female convicts (besides soldiers, sailors, and offi cials), was practically the founda tion of our great Commonwealth. Considering the comparatively slight crimes for which transportation was inflicted in the "good old times," and the merciless nature' of the "jus tice" dealt out to the lower classes for slight deviations from the path of virtue, it is quite possible that Captain Philipp's gaolbirds and their warders c o n t a i ned an a ppreci able proportion of what.is needed to build UP a new colony. The success of the experiment is its tot excuse, though no one who has studied the black side of the trans portation system would desire to : it renewed in its entirety. The allotment of prisoners as "servants" (Practically as...

Big Wars from Little Causes. TRIFLES WHICH HAVE COST THOUSANDS OF LIVES. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 4 September 1914

Big Wars from Little j Causes. J TRIFLES WHICH HAVE COST THOUSANDS OF LIVES. While, of course, important .prin ciples and interests are involved, the fact remains that America's ul timatum to Mexico was the direct outcome of Huerta's refusal to fno the salute demanded of twenty one guns. It seems an absurd trifle for two countries to sacrifice human life for. The affair, however, pro vides but another illustration of the manner in which little sparks some times bring about big international blazes. 'J he war in which we lost th United States, for example, began because the citizens of Boston emp tied a number of tea-chests into Bos ton harbour. They objected to hav ing their tea taxed for the benefit of England, and showed their re sentment by tipping it into the sea. The result was that hostilities be gan at once. And it was really because a fev» people lost their heads in the ex citement of the moment that South Carolina began the war between North and South in America. While nego...

GLORIOUS WAR! [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 4 September 1914

GLORIOUS WAR ! Gabriel Suchet, who gained his baton and dukedom in Spain, was the only prominent French corps commander to emerge from that grim, inglorious warfare with repu tation enhanced. All Napoleon's other generals impaired their credit, and even Suchet smirched his name, on which the storm of Lerida, in Western Catalonia, May 13, 1810, left a mark not to be whitewashed over by admirers. The city fell, after a brief siege, but Suchet, wanting the citadel also, gained it by methods simple, effec tive, but brutal, perhaps the great est atrocity perpetrated by any combatant throughout . the war. They consisted in sending detach ments through the streets with or ders to thrust the population, along vtith the wreck. o[ the garrison, into the ditch and over the drawbridge into the citadel. Pressed on by the French, they filled the castle yard before the governor could exclude them. Then, the castle, being cram med with 15,000 men, women, and children, Suchet bombarded it with every...

The Useful Reindeer. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 4 September 1914

The Useful Reindeer. In sub-Arctic countries the rein deer takes the place of ox, sheep, and horses. It gives milk, meat, and clothing, and is a good beast of burden. From the milk the Laplander makes a cheese. It is true that those who have tasted it do not praise it ; they say it is hard, and rank of taste. But that may be due to bad cheese-making. At any rate, reindeer-milk cheese is the Laplander's chief food during the long winters of the North. In the summer he lives on a frugal diet of curds and whey. He makes no but ter, but the .Finlonders do ; it is of a very pale colour-nearly white. At the end of the summer the reindeer becomes very fat, and the flesli is excellent. It is regarded as the greatest delicacy by their own ers-a delicacy to which they treat themselves only on rare occasions, the reindeer has the thickest skin of all northern anfhials, and the warmest for clothing. As draught animals, the reindeer are used not only for drawing the sleighs in winter but for agr...

PF1S PICTURES of THE PAST. THE PARISIAN PITMAN. While Sir Isaac Titm&n died rich j honoured, the inventor 01" (ahe most popular French short hand system passed away re cently in comparative obscurity. .Abbe Eniile Duplovo was a young r,riest who formed a sudden and il)CVplicabIe tasta for stenography (which, of course, forms tio part ot the curriculum accessary to qualify for Holy Orders, Catholic or Pro-! testant). He studied the existing systems profoundly, saw their im perfections, and decided to improve them. He quitted his ecclesiastical duties, andf working in collaboration with jjjs brother, invented the Duployan system. But to invent is only the first step. The abbe's notable feat was to popularise his system. He founded at Paris the '"Stenographic Institute of the Two Hemispheres."

Her words were spoken in a quick, commanding tone, and the girl look ed up with a start. "W«hty should I shut them ? The night is very hot," she answered. "Shut the windows !"
