Local & General News THE NORTH RIDING VACANCY. Ratepayers are beginning to ask-- j Who is to fill the vacancy in the North j riding of Hamprlenshire, caused through Cr II.

Jabiiee Celebrations. TEA MEETING AND CONCERT AT DERUINALLUM. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 July 1914

Jubilee Celebrations. TEA MEETING AND CONCERT AT DERRINALLUM. The jubilee celebrations in connection with the Lismore Presbyterian Parish were continued on Thursday evening of last week, when a tea meeting, fol lowed by a concert, was held at the Derrinallum Mechanics' HalI. Both functions were largely attended in spite of weather that was by no means fa vorable to those who had to come from a distance. The tea meeting was a most enjoy able affair. Those who patronised it came with appetites sharpened by the fall in temperature and did their best to create a famine ; but this had been provided against, and it would have needed the aid of an elephant or two to finish off such an ample supply of comes tibles as had been laid in by the ladies responsible for the repast. When "the good things had been done ample justice to"--to quote a well-known author-- there remained several baskets full, which were disposed of privately at alarming sacrifices. Those who waited at the tables were Mes...

SMOKER LAUREATE. KEEPS CIGAR ALIGHT 2 HOURS 46 MINUTES. I J What is believed to be a world's re i cord has been set up at a congress of ) South German smokers, held in Frank |fort. A special. trophy, consisting of I a silver eagle on a red and white rib J bon, was offered to the smoker who 'took the longest time to turn a Mexi ;can cigar into grey-white ash without 'letting it go out. The competition be gan at 11 o'clock, and 200 people con . tested for the award. By 12 o'clock ^ only 20 competitors were in the run: ijning-the rest had finished their I "weeds" or had laid them at rest"in I the ash tray for too long. The rivals i dropped out rapidly, and by one , o'clock only one smoker was left , Herr Henz, a Sachsenhausen business ]man, who puffed away in peace until ! he had to throw his diminutive cigar ' stump away two hours 46 minutes and 17 seconds after he had set light to it.

AUSTRALIA'S PRESS. SECOND PLACE IN WORLD. ONLY AMERICA AHEAD. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 July 1914

AUSTRALIA'S PRESS. SECOND PLACE IN WORLD. ONLY AMERICA AHEAD. The newspapers of Australia come la for some warm praise from Dr. Walter Williams, Dean of the Facul ty of Journalism at the Missouri Uni versity. Dr. Williams has just con cluded a world tour investigating the methods of news-handling in the vari i ous countries, and his visit to Aus tralia some months ago will be well remembered. On his return to America he was interviewed by the St. Louis Republic, a whole page of space being devoted to describing his observations. In the course of this interview he says: - "Australian journalism interested me deeply. Australia is the only country where the salaries of news paper men are regulated by law. The Australian Journalists' Associa tion, organised under the laws, is a sort of trades union. The minimum pay for junior reporters, senior re porters, sub-editors, and so forth, is fixed. i "I was told that under this system, which went into effect but recently, | the average rate of...

Football. LISMORE'S CLOSE SHAVE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 July 1914

football. «#> _ LISMORE'S CLOSE SHAVE. Lismore are still unbeaten in the pre miership competition, but their margin j of victory against Cressy on Saturday i was the very narrow one of three points. The match was played at Cressy in per fect weather for the spectators, but a bright sun made it rather hot for the players. Thewlis, of Geelong, umpired a game that was always worth watch ing, and.gave general satisfaction. Commons, who captained Cressy, won j the toss from Dave Walters, and de- j cided to kick north with the wind, a j breeze that dropped considerably after half-time. Soon after the bounce a " free" to Duncan resulted in Cressy's first behind. Dowling marked from the kick-off and sent the play along the east wing. Mitchell got a penalty kick, and took it into Cressy's territory ; but the ball soon came back with a chain of J marks. Sutherland and Lofty Missen j broke the connection. Johnston had a ; shot, but the ball went out of bounds, j Dowling sent it away, but M'...

Not What He Seemed. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 July 1914

Not What He Seemed. A well-known figure in the political ferment in England is Lord Charles Beresford, who is himself, of course,-' an Irishman. Lord Charles is generally ready with a telling retort, a fact that at least one well-known politician remembers. This gentleman had changed political sides once or twice; and, having for the moment embraced the political faith of Lord Charles, he attended one of his lordship's meetings. Afterwards he went up to the speaker to congratu late him. "Capital speech that of yours, Beres ford," he said, with an air of patron age Lord Charles found it hard to bear, "very good, indeed; but, you knoyr, you don't look like a statesman." To which he got the smashing reply: "Neither do you look like a weather cock." Uneasy lies the face that weara a frown.

KEEP FAITH WITH THE CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 July 1914

KEEP FAITH WITH THE CHILDREN. Many a woman who would not think of lightly breaking a promise made to a grown-up person is utterly careless about keeping her word with her children. She promises whatever is convenient at the moment, and ap parently thinks that the breaking or keeping of those promises* is a matter in which she can please herself, and that lier children have no right to con sider themselves aggrieved if she does not do BO. A mother who acts thus does her children grievous harm. Shi forgets that the sense of justice is strong in ?quite a little child, and that it is nat ural and reasonable that he should expect his parents to bo as good as their word, and to fulfil their promi ses, even at the cost of convenience. Promises should not be lightly broken, and the parent who is guilty of this soon loses her children's confidence, which is one of the sweetest things which our little ones can give us. When hoys and girls learn to doubt their parents' truthfulness they SOON l...

Has Begun To Be Suspicious. A man who had just finishe-l a com fortable meal at a restaurant the oilier evening suddenly rose up from his chair, caught up his hat and an umbrella that stood against the wall,, and rushed out of the building. "Stop-him!" exclaimed the proprie tor. * "That fellow went out without paying." 'Til stop him," said a determined looking man, who rose up hastily from a table near where the other had sat. "He's taken my gold-headed umbrel la! I'll stop him, and I'll bring him back in charge of a police-officer, the scoundrel!" Without a moment's pause he dash ed out. of t.ho house in hot pursuit of Hie conscienceless villain. And the proprietor, after having waited some six months, has somehow begun to suspect that neither of them will ever come back.

BRAVERY AND SACRIFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 July 1914

BRAVERY AND SACRIFICE. In the chapel at Glenalmond School, in Perthshire, there is a marble slab with this stirring story recorded upon it: There, was once in the school a pu pil named Alexander O'umine Russell, who became an officer in the 74tb Highlanders when only a iad of 17. In connection with the memorable loss of the Birkenhead, he won im mortal glory. The troopship struck upon a rock; the soldiers were formed in ranks upon the deck to die; the wo men and children were being saved in boats. Russell was ordered into one of the boats to command it, and a little way off he watched with dimmed eyes the doomed ship. When she went down he saw creatures of the deep con tending for his beloved comrades. Then he saw a sailor's form rise up close to the boat, and a hand strive to grasp the side. A woman in the craft called out in agony, "Save him! Oh, save him, sir, he is my husband," but there was no room for another, and the boat was laboring heavily as it was. Russell looked at the ...

What It Was. One morning old Mr. Bell was in dustriously plying his hammer on a wooden contrivance under the kitchen window in the hack-yard, when a neighbor called to inquire after his wife, who had ibeen unwell for some time. The old chap's reply, however, was drowned by someone in the house coughing very loudly. "Poor dear! I s'pose that's 'er coughin', ain't it?" cried the sympa* thetic old lady. j "Na, na, ma woman," replied the aged toiler, surveying his handiwork I proudly; "it ain't a coffin. It's a fowl bouse."

THE MILLENNIUM. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 July 1914

THE MILLENNIUM. When the last hobble skirt is for gotten, And the last new fad has been tried When the pannier fashion has faded, And the "hipless" craze has died, We shall rest, and faith, w& shall need it Be at peace for a season or two. Till the next freak of folly arises To torture our souls anew. And those that survive shall be happy, They shall fling away pounds of hair; They shall sit all day without aching, At ease in a rocking chair; They shall wear their own faces and figures, They shall walk as far as they please, And be able to cross a puddle Without sprawling on hands and knees. Arid few of the men will praise them,. And none will admire the sight; For no one will dress for fashion, And no one for man's delight; But each for her own sweet comfort,. And each in her own sweet way, Shall wear the thing that she wishes, But the gods will weep that day.

THE INDOMITABLE SCOT. A West Country Scot, who had en gaged in the manufacture of a cer tain description of goods then recent ly Introduced into that part of the country, found it necessary, or con jecturcd it mignt be 'profitable, to establish a permanent connection with some respectable house in London. With this design he packed up a quan tity of goods, equipped himself for the journey, and departed. Upon his arrival he made diligent inquiry as to those who were likely to prove his best customers, and accordingly pro ceeded to call upon one of the most opulent, drapers, with whom he re solved to establish a regular corre spondence. 'When Saunders entered the shop in question he found it crowded with customers, and the salesmen all bustling about making sales, and displaying their wares to prospective purchasers. Saunders waited what he considered a reason able time; then in a lull of business laid down his pack, his bonnet, and staff upon t.ne counter, and inquired for "'.lie hea...

Willing to Oblige. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 July 1914

Willing to Oblige. One of our regular contributors who haB gone away for a winter holiday sends UB the following bright story from the south of France: Brilliant sunshine made the gar den-party enjoyable. The garden real ly was a garden, and, though most of the guests clustered on the lawn, one or two wiser people sauntered around the flower-bordered paths. Two of theBe were seated In a quiet part of the garden enjoying the scent of the flowers and the solitude. They were engaged. Presently a mutual friend sauntered down the path and noticed them. "You seem to be enjoying your selves over here all alone?' said he. "We are," said the girl, and, being a girl, managed to look pleased to see him. "Won't you join us?" "Sorry, I can't," answered, the friend, "not being a clergyman. But I'll go and find one if you wiBh!" ?are in summer, comfort in winter. It ifl nit work that kills men; it in worry. It is not the revolution that destroys the machinery, but the fric tion.
