The Rainbow argus PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY SATURDAY, JUNE 6, 1914. Town Beautification [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 6 June 1914

PURMSIIEP EVKKY SATUIUUV SATURDAY, JUNE 6, 1914. Town Beautificatioa . « . There are few mutters of greater importance to the people of the Victorian provincial towns, and especially those of the Wimtnera and mallee, than that of tree planting. Everywhere, all over the world, the cultivation of trees, for beautiflcation, for health promo tion, for comfort and convenience, and even on far reaching material considerations, has, of recent year.--, been given much attention. The gum tree, this eucalyptus of Aus tralia, to which we, having it in more or less abundance, are apt to attach far too little of what is its real value, is, for health pur poses, and because of its unchang ing greenness and never failing .shade, bi-ing extensively cultivated in the cities of the old world.

REASSURANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 6 June 1914

REASSURANCE. "Before you ask," she calmly spoke— "Dear, listen to this word; You're not the first man I have loved, Nor second—nay, nor third." . "Am I the fourth or fifth," he asked In scorn; "or were there more?" She murmured, "Don't be vexed, sweetheart, "For, as I said 'before, "This love is not my first—but, hark!" He felt her gentle touch— "I promise it will be my last; "Now—can you say as much?" "You are my darling girl," he cried, And bowed his manly head Upon her hand—"My love — my bride!" But—that was all he said!

DIAMONT MINES IN SOUTH AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 6 June 1914

DIAMONT MINES IN SOUTH AFRICA. The history of the diamond mines is one long romance—catastrophes, skilful robberies, and the speedy real! sation of colossal fortunes, the an nual output of the mines averaging several millions of pounds sterling. Early in 1S67 a traveller named O'Reil ly rested a while at a farm in the Hope Town district. His host pre sently brought to his notice some nice looking stones obtained from the riv er. O'Reilly at once ' pounced upon the first stone, and took it to Dr. G. Atherstone, at Grahamstown, where it quickly realised £500. This lucky wayfarer hastened back to the spot, but his searches were unavailing. Two years after, a farmer named Niekirk acquired from a native for £400 of stock a large diamond, which sold in Hope Town for £10,000. This famous gein was christened "Star of South Africa," weighed 83 carats, and esti mated to be worth £25,000. The Bul fontein mine was discovered through diamonds being found in the walls of an old native farmhouse. ...

MORAL REFLECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 6 June 1914

MORAL REFLECTIONS. An obedient wife commands her husband. Be charitable and indulgent to everyone but yourself. Obstinacy is a parasite, living eith er on a strong will or on great stu pidity. Retire into thyself, and thou wilt blush to find how poor a stock is . there. A man has no more right to say an uncivil thing than to act one—no more right to say a rude thing to an other than to knock him down. Men are like trees; each one must put forth the leaf that is created in him. Education is only like good cul ture it changes the size but not the sort. To know the pains of power we must go to those who have it; to know its pleasures we must go to those who are seeking it. The pains of power are real, its pleasures imaginary. In the active and vigorous games and merriment of children there are the most health giving conditions that can be obtained, because they are the wise combination of exercise and mirth. "Almost" is a dangerous word. It has tripped up many a man who might have been...

Another Epigram. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 6 June 1914

Another Epigram. Once at a dinner at which Dr. Emil Reich was present the conversation turned on marriage. "That was a wise saying of the old Gi • ek philosopher," said someone. " 'Whether you marry her or not you will regret it.'" "Yes," answered Dr. Reich. "It re minds me of a certain old maid who once said something almost as good as that. 'Auntie,' said her little niece to her, 'what would you do if you had your life to live over again?' "To which the lonely spinster quick ly replied: " 'Get married, my child, before I had sense enough to decide to be an old maid.'"

Helping the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 6 June 1914

Helping the Editor. A country editor, who is also an au thority-on certain industrial matters, recently came up to town, bringing his wife along with him. 'This good woman was one after noon the guest of a rather patronising clubwoman. "So your husband is an editor?" the latter asked. "Yes." 'Since you have no family and have considerab'e leisure on your hands, I dare say you assist him in his edi torial work?" "Oh, yes," said the editor's wife, who is also his cook, "I edit all his inside matter."

His Reason. "It says here 'One f the idols most revered by the Koreans is the figure of a woman, seated, resting her chin in her hand,'" said Mrs. Chatterley, reading from the newspaper. "Which proves that the Koreans are about the wisest nation on earth," suggested her husband. "How's that, Joshua?" "Well," said Mr. Chatterley, Tvith distinct emphasis, "simply because they make a deity of a woman who has sense enough to give her chiu a rest."

A Surgeon's Revenge. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 6 June 1914

A Surgeon's Revenge. Few things vex a doctor more than to be sent for in great haste at an unreasonable hour, only to find upon arival that little or nothing is the matter with the patient. An eminent English surgeon was called to an "urgent case" of this sort, and he found the patient, who was of great wealth but small courage, had received a slight wound from a fall. The surgeon's face did not betray his irritation, but he gave his servant or ders to go home with all possible haste, and return with a certain plas ter. The patient, turning very pale, said anxiously: "I trust, sir, there is no great and immediate danger?" "Indeed there Is," answered the sur geon. "Why, if that fellow does not run like a racehorse, there is no tell ing but that your wound may heal before be gets back with the plaster."

Throat Troubles. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 6 June 1914

Throat Troubles. When doctors talk about the "naso pharyngeal system," they mean the entire mucous membrane that lines the nose and throat, all of which must 'be in a healthy condition if you wish to avoid the long list of ailments that begins with the common "cold" and ends with tuberculosis, and includes tonsilitis, influenza, croup, diphtheria, and, last but not least, adeuoids. In young children the passages of the nose and throat are very small and very sensitive, and they respond quickly to every change in the child's physical condition. When a disease germ attacks a sensitive mucous membrane, the membrane becomes inflamed and swollen. The immediate result is that the child cannot get breath enough to live 011 through the nasal passages, and begins to breathe through the mouth. If this happens only occasionally the inflammation soon subsides and the mouth-breath ing stops. But if one cold succeed another, as is the case with many children in the winter months, the mu cous memb...

After Many Days. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 6 June 1914

After Many Days. During a frost of last year a lady was unfortunate enough to find a burst pipe inside the scullery. Stand ingv on some steps she tried to stop the flow of water by binding a towel around .the pipe and holding it till as sistance was obtained. Fortunately a plumber was passing, and he quickly came to the rescue. "One moment, madam, I'll fetch'mv tools," he said. The poor man, however, slipped on the treacherous pavement and broke his leg, which stopped his work for many a week. A year later, more severe weather, and another burst pipe in the same scullery, and the same careful house wife, to save a mess mounts the steps to stop the water as before. The same plumber is engaged to render assistance. He looked at the woman, and recollection dawned on him In a stupifying manner. "Oh," he cried, "I couldn't come back before! I broke my leg. Have you been holding all the time? I'm 80 sorry."

Too Realistic. Willie finally persuaded his aunt to play train -with him. The chairs were arranged in line, and he issued or ders: "Now you be the engineer and I'll be the conductor. Lend me your watch and get up into your cab." Then he hurried down the platform, time piece in hand. "Pull out, there, you red-headed, pie-faced jay!" he shout ed. "Why, Willie!" his aunt exclaimed in amazement. "That's right, chew the rag!" he re torted. "Pull out! We're five minutes late already." They have had to forbid his playing down by the train terminus.
