WOMAN'S WORLD. OLD MOTHERS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 July 1914
WOMAN'S WORLl\ OLD MOTHERS. 1 love old mothers-mothers with white hair, And kindly eyes, and lips grown softly sweet With murmured blessings over sleep ing babes. There is something in their quiet grace That speaks the calm of Sabbath afternoons; A knowledge in their deep unfaltering eyes That far outreaches all philosophy. Time, with caressing touch, about them weaves The silver-threaded fairy shawl of age, 'While all the echoes of forgotten songs Seem joined to lend n sweetness to their speech. Old mothers!-as they pass with slow-timed step, Their trembling hands cling gently to youth's strentgh; Sweet mot-hers! as they pass, one sees again Old garden walks, old roses, and old loves.

CHAPTER XXI. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 July 1914
CHAPTER XXL The commotion at Castle O'Doylo when Sheila did 'not appear can be better, imagined than described. Dear ma expected her at the end of an hour, 'but knowing Sheila's passion for. walking, took no notice until two and even three hours had gone by. Then she gave the alarm and the entire family, including Nanny and the, ser vants, got into a state of uproar. As to The O'Doyle, his voice sounded all over the great house. Every man, wo man and child was sent to search for Miss Danvers, and T-he O'Doyle aid ed in the hunt,- but there was no sign of the missing girl. The O'Doylo had the Irishman's irascible temper, and .scolded everyone who came near him. Dearma, however, managed to a cer tain extent to calm him. "Sheila Is the last girl in the world," , she said, "to fall into the river, or sink into a bog, and who on earth would/ste 1 her, daddy, for she left liji*/ pi-.rse with me before she went out, and I"as, I. know, not a half penny on' her person-nor any ormna ments eit...
No Nice Things Now. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 July 1914
No Nice Things Now. Amsley got up to get his pipe from the mantelpiece the other evening, and carelessly brought his foot down on his Svife's tender corn. He made no apology, and Mrs. Amsley said: ""Well, Henry Amsley?" "Well, what?" "You haven't anything to say, have you?" "Anything to say about what?" "Atout nearly crushing my foot to" a jelly." . ' " ''What should I say?" "I'd ask, if I were you, Henry Ams ley! What would you have said ten years ago, before we were married, when you were courting me? What would you say to-day to any woman who did not happen to be so fortun ate as to be your wife? Hey? Why, you'd humble yourself in the dirt and apologise to her! You'd say, 'I beg your pardon' and 'How awkward I am' and 'Do excuse ine!' Oh, you couldn't be humble and polite; enough in your apologies! My! how you would apolo gise! You'd be apt to wriLo her a note about it! And if it had happened after our engagement., you'd be so tenderly solicitous about, my 'poor dear little foot,...
PUSHER OR PULLER. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 July 1914
PUSHER OR PULLER. Sir Oliver Lodge claims (.hat there is no sucli thing an pull applied to bod ies; that is, that an engine, for in stance, never pulls a train, but really pushes it. A little excursion into what he means will readily convince the sceptical that he is right. Take this example: The couplings of the en gine extend behind that of the car following and does actually shove it forward. The reason it conies for ward is because its parts do not se parate; that is, it has cohesion. But the actual force administered is that of a push and not a pull. Take a rope pulling a safe up to a window; it is wrapped under the safe, and that is the part that is exerting the force and urging the sale upward, the-other parts of the rope simply sticking to gether. Wli.cn we pull our coats off we really push them off, for the force is exerted behind the object in the di rection of the motion, and, as every one knows, that is called push.
THINGS WE TAKE FOR GRANTED. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 July 1914
THINGS WE TAKE FOR GRANTED. We h^ve been so long accustomed to living in civilised society that a hundred and one conveniences which are used by us every day of our lives never strike us as being ours only by virtue of the fact that a gradual pro gression in the total amount of hu man knowledge has made them pos sible. There are so many things which we are accustomed to use and which we never have to do without that it seldom occurs to us that once upon a time man had none of them. 7'akc, for instance, the houses in which we live. It is as certain as any thing can be that there was a time when no houses were built. Man was in such a primitive state that he had not the least conception of the build er':-; art., and all he could do to obtain :-:omc amount of shelter from the wind and rain was to hide within caves in the rocks and cliffs. Those caves in deed wore the lirsl primitive homes of mankind. We take our fireplaces for granted. There was no fireplace in the cave home of the cav...
A STARTLING SUGGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 July 1914
A STARTLING SUGGESTION. Th.it. condemned murderers should have the opportunity of submitting themselves to vivisection and thus se cure n "chance to work out their own salvation," instead of being hanged, was the -startling HUggestion made by the Mayor of Bath, Dr. Preston King, at a meeting of the local nnti-vjvisec tionista. He .suggested that, while the nation kept capital punishment. in its code of laws, and thought it right for ho ciety at birge that, a criminal who had committed murder should he hanged. I hey should give the condemned man the option of subjecting himself to some simple kind, not the grosser kind, of vivisection-such, Tor in stance, as feeding on tuberculosis milk or injection of germs of various kinds, such as those of sleeping sick ness. Diseases like sleeping sickness could be studied better in the human being than in the animal. Those were the things he would subject, the condemned criminal to if he were willing to be so subjected, his life be ing already f...
LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 July 1914
LADIES' LETTER. From "Irene" In Melbourne. " Melbourne Cup Carnival is threa tened in the costliness of its dress display by a growing sister in tho same family. Last Saturday at Flem ington was a revelation. Mr. Byron Moore and his committee need not worry their heads about providing more jumping events; there are enough thrills in the crowd of wo menfolk that parade on the stand side of the race-track. Fair creatures in tiger-skins, leopard-skins and bear skins. More of them than were ever stocked in any forest jungle. Cup figures may not be approached in at tendance, but in averagd cost of wo men's apparel the National meeting is miles ahead. Lovely woman comes out In all her luxury. If it is not tiger skins, leopard skins, or bear skins, it is furs from the Polar seas, ermine seal or minx, and if you cannot reach them there is N.Z. coney-all costing money. A Cup dress may run from ten guineaB to anything, but Grand National garb" begins where the other ends. We have a searchligh...

"Why," protested the author, "I couldn't drink that much water fa a day." "An' I wadna dare try it," eaid th© bargeman.
So Small. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 July 1914
So Small. General Sir Arthur Paget, who com mands the forces in Ireland, tells an amusing story -of a visit paid by an in spector to a prison in the north of ?Ireland. There had been a^rumor that the prisoners were underfed, and the inspector, determined to find out if there were any truth in it, decided to question the prisoners himself. On entering one cell he noticed that the atmosphere seemed rather stuffy, and glancing around he noticed that the ventilator was shut. "Your cell seems rather close and( stuffy," he remarked to the prisoner.' "Why don't you have the ventilator open?" "I should like to, sir," replied the pri soner, "but I daren't rislc it." "Risk it!"' repeated the inspector. "What risk is there?" } ''Well, sir," the prisoner explained, "the last time I had it open a large] bee-quite a large one, sir-flew in and carried off my dinner!"

DOING THE DANDY. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 July 1914
DOING THE DANDY. A young dandy walked into the bar of a country "public" one day, and, re ceiving a respectful salutation from a "joskin" who stood near, ordered drinks for two, handing a sovereign in payment, saying he had nothing less. The barmaid was obliged to take the coin t.o her mistress for change, but soon returned, and asked if he would pay the next time he was passing, as they were unable to give change. A minute later, taking advantage of the girl's absence, the dandy nudged the laborer's arm, and said: "Look here, friend, what do you say to getting drinks for nothing?" "Why, I'm game, of course!" "Well, then, I'll lend you the sover eign, and you order the drinks." The exchange was soon effected, and Hodge knocked loudly on the counter. "Same dose again," he said, when the maiden appeared, and, diving deep down into his trousers pocket, fished up the sovereign. "Take th' change out o' that," he said coolly. After another brief disappearance, the young woman returned and...

Meanwhile, the young: man took lit tle or no notice of his mother's agita tion. He consoled himself with copi ous d aughts of whisky and soda, un til Mrs. Rellairs rose from her seat and put her hand on the bottle. "What are you doing, mother?" asked Ralph, now In that stage of semi-drunkenness when he had little or no control over himself. "You are drinking too much, Ralph," said Mrs. Bellairs. "When you lived with us at Sunnyside you never touched anything except claret, but now " . "Yes, mother, now " ejaculated tho youth. "£ will put the bottle away, said Mrs. Bellairs.

FAMOUS ECCENTRICS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 July 1914
FAMOUS ECCENTRICS. Paganini had his share of eccen tricity. He feared no one, and when he was disposed to Hy off at a tangent neither audience nor King could keep him in the regular orbit. Jn the reign of Louis Philippe he agreed to play at a ^ourt concert announced at the Tuileries. Just before the concert he looked at the room. The curtains were hung so as to interfere with the sound, and he asked the superinten dent to have thorn properly arranged. The official paid no heed to the re quest, but so offended Paganini by his manners that the vklinist. deter mined not to play. The hour of the concert came, but no Paganini. At last a n.esscnger was sent to his hotel. The violinist was there; but he had gone to bed. Paganini's eccentricity once caused him to be mobbed at Ferrara. In those days the common people of the .suburbs of that little town looked upon the dwellers in the town itself as "a set of asses." Hence any yokel of the suburbs, if asked where he came from, never replied, ...
INVENTIONS BY ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 July 1914
INVENTIONS BY ACCIDENT. Many important inventions wore merely the result of accident. Ail al chemist, experimenting in earths for the making of crucibles, found that he had invented porcelain. A ?watchmaker's apprentice, holding a spectacle-glass between hits thumb and forefinger, noticed that through it the neighboring buildings appeared larger, and thus he discovered the adaptability of the lens to the tele ' scope. A Nuremberg glass-cutter by acci dent one day dropped a little aqua fortis upon his spectacles. Ho found that it corroded and Boftened the glass, and he conceived the idea of etching, lie drew figures upon the glass with varnish, applied the fluid, and cut away the glaBS about the drawing. When he removed the var nish the figures appeared, raised on a dark ground. The process of whitening sugar was never known until a hen walk ed through a clay-puddle and then strayed through a sugar-house. Her tracks were left in the piles of sugar, and when it was noticed that the sp...
LOVE OF LITIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 July 1914
LOVE OF LITIGATION. A mania for going to law seems to possess ' o inconsiderable portion of our population. The cause lists c/f our courts lengthen with every term, and judges regard with dismay the frightful accumulation of cases. Cynical people insist that the im mense numb of young lawyers turned loose upon the community ev"ry year has something to do with ihe tremendous impulse that hu's been g1 en to litlg-.fion within the last few years. Immoral glaziers oir. of em ploy have been known to incite idle boys to break the windows «f exem plary citizens, with a view of creating a d;manu lor the services of a "panes taking" class, and it is asserted, libel lously, perhaps, that peopie. who live in glass houses are eggul on to throw stones a*, each other by newly-fledged counsellors, who hope i.o ;'rolit by the damage. jfow.jver this may be;, it in quite cvtain that II proportion of litigants to the population at, large it? much greater now than it w;iton years ago.

THE TERROR OF THE UNKNOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 July 1914
THE TERROR OF THE UNKNOWN. "Utter bewilderment, and astonish ment were my first reelings when Bight was given to me," said a man who had never seen until he was 30 years old. "The bandage was drawn away from my eyes in the hospital. What I saw frightened me; it was so big, and caused such strange emotions. I called out in terror and put out my hand. My fingers touched my nurse's face. I knew she was there, for she had just taken the bandage from my eyes, and 1 knew what I was touching; but I did not know what it was I saw. "'For mercy's sake, what is it?' I asked in agonising tones. "The nurse answered me soothing ly, taking my fingers in her hand and moving them from her mouth to her eyes, to her nose, chin, and forehead. 'It is my face that you see. Look! You know this is my mouth-my chin, and these are my eyes.' "Soon I knew that I was seeing what was familiar to the touch of my fingers -a human face. But the sensation for long was one of terror. The first meal 1 ate was an odd e...
