Malvern A.N.A. PRICE OF DRUGS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 30 October 1914
| Malvern. A.2T.A PRICE OF DRUGS. At a meeting of Malvern branch A.N.A. on Tuesday night, members strongly protested against the pro posal of two local chemists to charge the branch an extra fee, owing, it was stated, lo the in Tease in the cost of drugs- As a protest against the proposal, it was urged that the branch should join the Friendly Societies' Dispensary Cr. A. T. Ginn, one of the oldest members of the branch, said that it was a crying shame that one of the chemists named, who had 246 members on his list, and had been supported by the brancli for 26 years, should take such a stand-and-deliver attitude, and de mand an extra charge of 6d. per member per quarter. A Member: The other chemist is charging individual members 6d. extra for each bottle of medicine. Cr. Ginn said he had no right to do so, and members should refuse lo pay the increase. . Drugs, had,, certainly advanced in price, but 'not; to such ah extentvas to-justify the increase. He urged that the branch should t...
Disenchantment. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 30 October 1914
Disenchantment. Sir Robert Ball, the famous as tronomer, whose death occurred re cently, used to. tell a- little story of an experience that he had when he was at the Dunsink Observa tory. A farmer came to him one day, and asked if he might look at the moon through the telescope. "Surejj/ you can/' said Ball. "Come round to-night, and I shall be very happy to let you see it through the telescope." "Can't I seo it now,?" asked tho farmer, surprised. "I am sorry that you "cannot," said, the astronomer. "You will have to wait until night." "Huh 1 Then your old telescopo is not so great a thing as I thought it was.!" cried tho man, relieved from his illusion. "I can see the moon at night without it."

A Faint Chance. Bill was looking for work lie had tramped round all day inquir ing nt the different places where there was any possibility o 1 a casunl labourer finding a job, but hud not struck any luck. At Inst he came to the great gates of the factory owned .ind run by Messrs. Doolan, O'Connor, and Mur phy. Seeing the foreman standing looking down the street, he went up and asked him if he could put a job his way. "We're full to burstin' wid men! now," said he. "But if yeas came along to-morrow bright and early, it's meself that might be givin* of a job to yoz." "Right-oh l" answered Bill. "VU bo round all right!" Then a shade of suspicion crossed his brow. "You're not pulling my leg, are you ? There really is a chance of a job ?" N " "Bless the man, ain't I telling yese ! It's like this here. We've got a man wid us now who isn't here, and, begorro, if he isn't hero to-morrow, I'll be after- tellin' him he needn't stop, and it's yourself can have the job I" AT. Dostic has invente...

Prahran-Malvern Tramway " . . Trust. i REMARKABLE'.?'.RECORD PROGRESS. In speaking:.at the annual smoke social of the .Malvern Club, Mr. Alex. Cameron,-";chairman of th'e Prahran-Malvern Tramway Trust, said the Trust was* like the army of the Allies,' always marching on to fresh victories.. They were now digging trenches ?? in Malvern-road. For the past:, year they had been trying to weld together the various iutercsts in the Trust, and the re-, suit of these elforts.was the consoli dation of the whole of the lines into the Trust. He regarded that as a great triumph of municipal states manship. They were all very familiar with the working and financing of "the Trust, and he would only . say that , the increase had been fourfold for the four years and four months of operation. The revenue for the year ended 30th September was ^"109,000, as against ^23,000 for the first year, and the passengers carried had in creased in thej same period from 3,000,000 to 16,250,000.

The Ways of Society. RECEIVING ROYALTY. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 30 October 1914
The Ways of Society. RECEIVING ROYALTY. A new book to which the "Lon don Evening News" draws atten tion is "The Ways of Society," by Mrs. Danvers Delano (Werner Laurie Ltd.), which is very amusing on things everybody knows, things not many people know, and things everybody ought to know. Not everybody knows, for in stance, that "the title ot Honour able, though merely a courtesy title, ranks in order of preccdence, and a young man bearing such a title is ontitlcd to take his hostess into dinner when older men not so distinguished are present." There is a note for the older married woman ,: the younger has already taken it to heart: "Steadfastly avoid anything ap proaching anxiety about the vinnds. If the souffle has sat down, study to preserve a passive demeanour; appear all the time as if you were not giving the dinner. A de; tachcd air is the acme of good manners. . . . !Do not frown nor instruct the servants during the repast; rather let things slide.". The rules for receiving Ro...
Fired by Wireless. A BOON TO SHIPPING AND RAILWAY COMPANIES. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 30 October 1914
Fired'by Wireless. BOON TO SHIPPING AND RAIL WAY COMPANIES. Almost ever alr>ce the introduc tion of Marconi telegraphy fer the fomm'mication of measagee without the intervention of wires, inventors have been trying to use the electric waves employed !or this purpose to control and direct machinery a distance. Very little, as the current iaaue of the "Wireless World" points out, has come of many brilliantly herald ed inventions concerning "wireless" torpedoes and "wireless" airships, hut, as the result of steady re search which has been going an quietly in the works of the Mar coni Company, distant control by wireless has become an accomplish ed fact. Long ago it was decided that for the safety of ships at. sea passing near ccrtnin parts of the coast it was desirable to instill fog signals on isolated boacons, these signals to be sonn led nt intervals of AO second** or so whenever the wea ther conditions rendered such warn ings necessary. The need of some such signals was particul...

Record in Deep-sea Diving. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 30 October 1914
Record in Deep-sea Diving. The Itoliua ironclad Rein* Mar gherita lost an anchor and chain near the Isle of Scarpanto, in the Aegean Sea. The depsh here was 38 fathoms (2.11ft.), and the iron embedded in liquid mud. No diver in the ordinary suit and helmet could* work at such depths, and the Government decided to employ a Greek fisher, Hadji St&tti Gcor gitifi by name. Statti simply stripped and took n 301b. stone beneath his arm to aid his descent. This he never abandons while under the water. It is attached to a cord, by which it is remounted when he gains the surface. The first day ho dived six times. These wore simply trial trips to test the exact depth, etc. On the second day, five descents enabled him to fix a cord to the links of tho chain. The third day, .making five dives, ho succeeded in lifting tho chain several yards and finding the head of the anchor. A short steel hawser was fixed to this, and on the fourth day (after Hadji had been thrice to tho bot-' torn of ...

REALLY HATHRK DIFFICULT. "Well, old man,"' called out the bachelor friend, as he hastened to wards the station, "and how's the family ?" The much-married man laid a re straining hand upon his shoulder, "Jfy children," he said, "are at a Aery difficult age just now." "DifHetilt !" inquired his friend. "But they're all past the measles und the teething age, aren't they ?" "Yes, long a*;o. But, my good fellow, you don't know what a fath *r\s troubles -are.

PART 3 CHAPTER VI.—(Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 30 October 1914
PART a CHAPTER VI-(Continued.) ' They two sat alone at the rough table, spread with as bountiful a storo as could be evolved from the limited menu of a Russian tavern. Dugdale pictured to himself with more or less inward chuckles the in tense astonishment of Sir John Cranford, Lee Whiteley, the famous artist, or any of his London cronies, could they have chanced upon the scene by some queer irony of fate. He was a lucky dog. He had won the goodwill of this fair goddess by a simple act of courtesy, which she seemed to think should be magnified because of her peculiar environment. . "What would she say whon he told her he had electcd to see her safely across the border, in spite of the old war-dog's sneers and warnings? perhaps she would bo angry. What business had heT a comparative stranger, to thus force his company, upon her, without so much as ask ing consent? Dugdale was not wholly at his ease, although he laughed and chatted as might ono quite free from all care. Strange to say,...
Floral Islands. THE SCILLIES AND THEIR PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 30 October 1914
Floral Islands. THE SCILLTES AND THEIR PEOPLE. Miss Jessie Mothersole, in her book on "Scilly"-has, of course (says the "Westminster Gazette") a good deal to say about the floral wealth of the islands. Geraniums and fuchsias, she tells, reach a great height, climbing /to the eaves of the houses, and sometimes blos soming all the year round. It is said that an islander once replied with indignation to a stranger's tactless comment on the scarcity of wood, "Indeed, we can heat our ovens with our geranium faggots J" The book, which tells the story of the isles, their folk and their flowers, makes reference to the cheer ful kindliness of disposition among the inhabitants which at once makes the visitor feel quite at home. This Kindliness is shown in many little ways, even where there would be much excuse for contrary behaviour. A visitor and his wife were once trying to scale a stone fence-with 110 evil intent, but all the samo it was trespassing. An islandor' who was working in the fie...

TESTING CIGARS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 30 October 1914
TESTING CIGARS. A well-known cigar -expert has been dispelling some popular mis conceptions anent the fragrant weed, He alludod to the belief that tho whiter the ash and the longer it holds on, the better the cigar. This is quite wrong, he pointed out. The longth o! the nsh depends on tho size of the pieces used in the filler, and a clear steel-grey ash denotes the best Havana. Then, again, nearly every man will reject a spotted cigar, but the spots- mean absolutely nothing as regards quality. Most men think thoy, can tell a cigar by squeezing it or smelling. Neither test is the slightest good. And every smoker believes that co lour denotes strength-that a dark wrapper denotes a strong cigar, a light one a mild cigar. The colour has nothing whatever to do with the strength. As a matter ol fact, for the aver age smoker there are practically no outward indications of the qual ity of a cigar. The only test for the non-expert is in qinokitig It. "What does Harold call his motor boat ?*'...

Hospital Sunday at Malvern As compared with other years, the attendance at Central" Park, Malvern, , on Sunday, was small, but the collection was a record one.

The Emptiness of Space. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 30 October 1914
The Emptiness of Space. When we speak of outer space, the space between star and star, as be ing empty of matter, it is, writes a scientific authority, rather in teresting to see exactly what we mean. We know from observa tions on the planets that light, in its passage across space to our earth, suffers hardly any absorp tion and from this fact we can de duce conclusions respecting the den sity of such matter as exists in outer spacc. If the degree of rarefaction (lowness of density) in outer space is, for example, in the neighbourhood of the one hundred millionth part of an atmosphere, then the appearance of Jupiter, for instance, would be as if our at mosphere had twice lis present opacity. So that such matter as exists must he in a much more rarefied state. Hut after all Suppose our atmosphere were al lowed to expand up to the limits of the . visible universe, as far . as the Milky Way, then its rarefaction would be such that it would be quite; impossible, by any optical means, t...
AN EARLY EIGHTEENTH CENTURY IMPOSTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 30 October 1914
AN EARLY EIGHTEENTH CEN TURY IMPOSTOR. On June 23, 170S, William Ful ler, "Cheat-master General of Eng land," received a severe sentence, after one of the .most extraordi nary careers ever recorded. Fuller was the son of a butcher at Milton, in Kent, and became an apprentice in London but wearying of the humdrum life, he disappeared and was next heard of as page to Lord Melford. Being of handsome appearance, he rose rapidly, and was able, by a scries of frauds, to be come possessed of some wealth. Then he began to pose, first as General Fuller, and, later on, taking the title of Sir William Fuller Finally he created himself a peer. For1 some years the butcher's son was treated as of. the rank he claimed to be, and at lust his au dacity became so great that he ac tually wrote to the Speaker of the House of Commons, declaring that he had knowledge of some State secrets which hod been confided to liim by "his friend, the late King James." But in spite of his dis play and extravagance, ...
