"Life," my breddren," said tlie ne gro philosopher, "am mos'ly made up of prayin' for rain, an' then wishin' it would clear off."

JOHN LEE'S DREAM. Sentenced to death for the murder of Emma Keyse,' lady-in-waiting to the lato Queen Victoria, at Babbicombe, near Torquay, John Lee was brought out for execution in Exeter Gaol on February 25, 1885. Overnight Lee had dreamt 'that three attempts would be made to carry out the sentence, but that all three would prove unsuccess ful, and his life be preserved. He re vealed this to "Warder Bennett, who reported the circumstance to the go vernor of the prison. All possible pre caution was taken; but, nevertheless, Lee escaped the gallows. Everything having been made ready, Lee' stood on the trap of the gallows, which had just recently been erectcd. The signal was given, and Berry, the executioner, pulled the lever—but the trap refused to fall! The faces of all present expressed be wilderment. Berry gave the lever an other feverish pull, and the warders on eiiher side stamped upon the trap; but it would not move. Lee was then marched off, with the cap still over his face,...

MELBOURNE LETTER. THE BAKERS'S STRIKE. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 4 June 1914

MELBOURNE LETTER.' [BY'OUB SPECIAL COKRKSrONDENT.] The Bakers' Strike. Tho threatened striko of bakers is surely an object-lesson in the extremes to which foolish and ill-led men will pro ceed. The right to refuse to work is generally regarded as part of tho liberty of a froo man. Hut tho right to organize a stoppage, no as to bring a whnle com munity to its knees, has novor boon, and cannot be, recognized as a permissible action. Those who aim a savage blow at society—who would penalize the whole people in the hope of scouring some solfish sectional advantage — can never succeed. Yiolout measures necessitate strong reprisal; and otfporienco shows conclusively that no self-respecting com munity will allow itself to bo bullied by a single Glass—bo thoy dulces or dema gogues. Broad is a necessary of life. A.ud a Foderul Arbitration Court* after full investigation in which the Bakers Union joined, declarod that day baking was inexpedient, and the Union demand could not bo granted. If t...

Solemn Truth. "My efforts to keep a diary con vince mo of one tiling." "What's that?" "That there are mighty few days in the year on which a man does any thing .really worth recording." Friendship can sometimes show its strength as much by the readiness with which it accepts benefits as by the freedom with which it gives them. It proves by tllis its confidence in the love of the other side.

Thoy became very sociable 011 the "way. and the native, in a burst of confidence, pointed out a shebeen where the "best potheen in the country" might be obtained. The Englishman, only too glad of an opportunity of warm ing himself, offered refreshment, and the offer was readily accepted. 'Tis a very cold duy for these parts, Pat," remarked the tourist. "'Tis, yer honor!" replied Pat. He raised his glass, and the contents speedily vanished. "And there's truth in the old sayin'," he added, smacking his lips suggestively, " 'Wan swallow n'ver made a summer'!"

WHEN MARRIAGE IS A FAILURE. If neither husband nor wife has married for love, 'hut merely for mon ey, or any other mundane motive. If meals are ill-cooked and badly served. if two young people rush into matri mony, they take upon themselves all the burden of married life when too young to realise the responsibility of it. If the income, though well managed and .made the most of, cannot cover the expenditure. If tlio husband be a faddy, fidgetty man, perpetually prying into house hold matters, and if he thinks he knows more about them than anybody else. If both parties are absolutely re solved to see only the worst side of each other's character. If the husband tries to be mistress as well as master of the house, or the wife master as well as mistress of tlio house. If, when dark days come, husband and wife forget they took each other for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer. If the' wife is totally ignorant of even the rudiments of domestic econ omy, and thinks more of her dres...

The Ear. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 4 June 1914

The Ear. Tho human ear is d delicate piece of mechanism. That which we ordin arily designate as the "ear," is, after all, only the mere outer porch of a Reries of winding passages which lead from tho world without to the world within. Certain of these passages are filled with liquid, besides having mem branes stretched like parchment cur tains across "the corridor at different points. When a sound-wave strikes these they are turned into vibrations and made to tremble like the head of a drum does when struck with a stick or with the fingers. Between two of these parchment-like curtains a chain of minute bones extends, which serves to tighten or relax tho membranes and communicate vibrations to them. Tn the innermost place of all a row of w" ite threads, called nerves, stretch like the strings of a piano from the last point from which the tremblings reach, passing thence inward to the brain.
