THE GREAT MONEY MYSTERY. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 29 May 1914
THE GREAT MONEY MYSTERY. Lately wo have been hearing the stories at first hand of some of the greatest successes of the day in the way of money-making. They all re semble one another in one respect— that of concentration on one thing at a time. But while concentration is respon sible for much modern success, it leaves a vast area of interests un touched, and this area is never cover ! ed in after life. I What is there more piteous than ths j wealthy man who, after many years j of money-making, has retired? He j cannot go down on "melting days." like the retired candle-maker, because ; probably his business has passed en- ! tirely out of his hands. Besides, it ■ would be the lat thing hi fashionable j wife and daughters would desire him ; to do. Thcv are concerned to put as wide a distance as possible between those early days of struggle and their prescut social ease. So the poor man goes in for agriculture without the smallest real interest in it, or he take? to owning racehorses, o...

It was in Now South Wales, about 35 years ago, but the "percipient" in this caso was not a lady. He was an old squatter, a man of a rathor sinister reputation, dating from tho days of blacks, bush rangers, and convicts: in short, about as lrttlo troubled with norves as any man could be. But tko ono thing ue feared was a spider, ©specially the huge spccios which tho. Australian bushman insists od calling "triajite olp«s;" and, in the previous instan ce!, ho could detect their presenco (up to a certain distance) without seeing them. Ono night ho and three oth ers (of whom I was one), were playinc cards, when ho suddenly got up, and hurriedly loft the room, declaring that "thero was ono of those (adiec tivo) 'triautolopes' about.

Books and Bacon. A miner, who was proud of his boy's attainments at school, one even ing picked up a home-lesson book and read from it a quotation which ran like this: "Some books should be tasted, some swallowed, and some chewed and digested.—Bacon." Turn ing to his boy, ho said:— "What's this, sonnie? Thou doesn't' eat books at school, does tha? I know you are very clever, but you cannot do those nannygoat tricks, I'm sure. I'll warrant that'll be one of those printer's errors, sonnic." "Oh, no, father," said tho boy. "Me taphorically speaking, wo cat books." "Now, you cannot diddio mo like that," said tho father. "I didn't go to school very long, 'but I ken that's one of those printer's errors. Why, son nie, can thou not see? He's put the word 'Bacon' in tho wrong place.

GUARDING STATE SECRETS. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 29 May 1914
GUARDING STATE SECRETS. Every Foreign Office In Europe acts on the theory that an army of spies is constantly on the alert to steal its secrets, and infinite precautions are taken to baffle their efforts. Very shortly after the first use of blotting-paper it was discovered that it was quite possible to cause blotting-pads to give up jealously suarded secrets by simply holding It in front of a mirror. Long after all the commercial world had forgotten the existence of such a thing, the British Foreign Office uLed a sand shaker to dry its important written documents. Then specially manufactured InTc blotting-paper was used, 1m: this wus not found to be absolutely rpy-proof. and a return to the saud-shakor aos* contemplated, when somonne suggest ed the simple expedient of a small ab sorbent roller. These rollers lu.vo since been used for drying dipl'-mitl* documents. When such a roller lias been run up and down a document onco or twice, the cleverest spy in tho world is at liberty to tr...
