LIFEBOATS IN SUIT-CASES. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 25 June 1914
LIFEBOATS -IN SUIT-CASES. "Carry your own lifeboat" is the motto of an Italian inventor, Mr. G. Piperno, who has what is probably the most ambitious marine life-saving ap pliance on record. When not- in use the apparatus is packed into what looks like a .man's suit-case, measuring 24in. by 16in.: by 8in., and weighing 201b. Whe'l disas ter is imminent, the passenger blngs the suit-case on deck, breaks -the seal, and the apparatus opens out and be comes a" small boat. If it is necessary to abandon the ship the passenger steps into his pri vate. boat, closes the outer cover, and launches his craft by hurling himself overboard. Then, according to Mr. Piperno, the apliaratus rights itself in the water, the fop cover Ni thrown open, and the occupant finds himnielf sitting in anh -absolutely unsinkable ship. - - . -
MUSIC HALL ARTIST'S WINDFALL [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 25 June 1914
MUSIC HALL ARTIST'S WINDFALL Miss Kathryn Harris, a music-hall artiste, has just had a stroke of luck. She says that eighteen. years ago, when she was "working in drama" in the mining districts "out West" in the States, she was a great favorite with the miners in those rough set tlements.- . They gave her many presents, .such as shares in their mines,.which, of course, were usually hardly worth the paper upon which they were written. However, Miss Harris, .instead- of plastering the walls with. them, 'kept them in an old tin trunk, and a few weeks ago, while in Paris, she 'heard from. some gentlemen, who were in terested in mining matters, .that the exact value of -her old shares was £10,000. The lawyers are now- busily engaged in establishing her: ownership,_. and' shortly she. expects a nice fat sum for the shares.
THE POOR RICH HORSE AND THE RICH POOR HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 25 June 1914
THE POOR -RICH HORSE AND ::THE RICH POOR HORSE.. The poor rich horse,. driven" by a tall coachman with high hat and white gloves, looked very gay as he .pranc-. ed from the door of an elegant establishment on the avenue. The breast of the noble creature was covered with foam, and he tossed his I head up and down, and back and forth, and pawed the air with his fore feet. So .high were his eyes-almost look ing toward the sky-that he scarcely seemed able to see a fat old dray horse that stood near, regarding him with a sort of sleepy wonder, and con sidering him ,as belonging to another, "set' than.hissentirely. The old horse, did not siippose .t would: be any good to' pass the time of day with'his neigh: bor, as the rich horse undoubtedly re garded himself- as far too grand, to cominmunicate=-with such a humble per-. sonage; so he: changed the .bit around in his mouth, and' was just about to drop into .a gentle doze, when a:sound of distress from the rich horse caused his plain neighb...
