SUBMARINE PARIS. LANDMARKS UNDER WATER. DANGER ON THE "JOIE DE VIVRE." [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 July 1914
I SUBMARINE PARIS. LANDMARKS UNDER WATER. DANGER ON THE "JOIE DE VIVRE." The deluge has beon n trifle late, but It has come after Louis all the same. It has blotted out tlio Place de la Concorde, wherein several of the aforesaid Louis's Illustrious relatives lost lioir heads; it has threatened to swamp the tomb of Napoleon at the Invalldes and the Venus of Milo on the ground floor of the Louvre; it has imparted a Venetian aspect to Notre Dame, the Morgue, and other build ings that the world ltnows less about on the lie do Cite and the lie St. Louis. Paris Is a flat city; the shelv ing from the river Is so gradual as to be imperceptible tor the first mile or two. And It is around the river on both sidos that the important Paris has grown. History tells that tlio two islands constituted the camp of the ancient Gauls, and thence civi lisation spread until to-day M'Martro itself presents a condition which pass es for civilisation, until the apaches break loose and smash things every now...

99 MARRIES 19. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 July 1914
99 MARRIES 19.. Mrs. S. T. Benson, of Kingston, New York, who is one year short of a 100, was married last Saturday to a 19-years-old bridegroom. Despite her age, the old lady is a shrewd business woman, and has considerable proper ty. She has had numerous "admir ers." An English youth who had just fin ished a very tedious journey In a very slow-going train in South^ America, said to one of the railway officials:— "Does this company allow passen gers to give it advice If they do so in a respectful manner?" The official replied that he thought it did. "Well," the youth went on, "it oc curred to me it would be well to detach the cow-catcher irom the. front of the engine and fasten It to the rear of the train.. For, you see, we are not like ly to overtake a cow, but what's to prevent a cow strolling Into the car and biting a passenger?"
TO HIDE BALDNESS. HAIRS SEWN IN HUMAN SCALP. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 July 1914
TO HIDE BALDNESS. HAIRS SEWN IN HUMAN SCALP. A method of sewing hairs in the human scalp in cases of partial or total baldness has been successfully used in several instances by Dr. Szekoly at the hospital of Saint Ste phane at Budapest. The number of hairs "planted" in the head of a patient, says "The Times," has been as many as 50,000. One hundred hairs are drawn -through punctures in the scalp to every square centimetre, and as both ends are left free, the number is thus 200, or over 1000 to each square inch. Very fine gold wires are used, one five-hundredth of an inch in diameter, and fine, long hairs from a woman's head are at tached at the middle to these. The gold loop or knot acts as an "an chor," and after sterilisation is intro duced into the subcutaneous tissue, where it is slightly twisted, and holds the hair permanently in position. It is stated that 500 hairs can thus be introduced into the scalp within three quarters of an hour. Dr. Szekely has designed a special inst...

BE* SINCERE. Sincerity is the one essential ele ment, the one thing needful, in this regard, as n hasiB for true'manhood and womanhood. It' is tlie only foun dation that will stand. Every human heart wants to find it in somebody, and thero is no repose (or thut heart If it cannot;,.it is indispensable to hu man love in'every relationship of life. Men need it. Womenfwant it. Wives yearn for it in tlyair husbands, and, husbands crave for it in their wives. Parents hunger for it in their chil dren, and children are ashamed and unhappy when they find it' compro mised in their parents. Friendship cannot live without it.

Korong Election. CR A. GRAY RETURNED. MAJORITY OF 1038. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 July 1914
Korong Election. CR A. GRAY RETURNED. MAJORITY OF 1038. The election for the vacancy in the Legislative Assembly for the ICorong electorate, caused by the death of Mr Thomas Langdon, Chairman of Committees, took place on Friday last. There were only two candidates—Messrs A. Gray, of Wedderburn, and W. Williams, of Charlton—both of whom were supporters of the Liberal party. The contest was fought out in a friendly spirit. Cr Gray had a majority at nearly all the polling places, even the Charlton electors giving him pre ference to their own nominee. The final result, which was an nounced at Wedderburn by the returning officer (Mr James Treble) on Saturday night showed the result as follows :— Gray 2502 Williams... ... 1464 Majority for Gray 1038 Mr Treble said it was 20 years since a State election had been held in Korong, and as a newly appointed officer he had nothing to guide him in making his ar rangements.

NATURE'S COLD STORAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 July 1914
NATURE'S COLD STORAGE. . Ill the course of his travels Mr. Henry Seebohm, the fumouB orni thologist, once visited the Petchorn Klver, which flows from the Ural -Mountains into the Arctic Ocean, op posite to Nova Zembln. Along the lower part of the river stretched the tnmlra, a dreary, uninhabited tree less swamp, covered with ice and mow. Nevertheless, he found that this unattractive spot waB the summer home of almost halt the bird popula tion of the Old World. The traveller reached the region in early April. Forest and tundra were as devoid of life as the Desert of Su Imrn; but a change was near. Sud donly summer broke over the scene; tho ice in the river split and disap peared, i ho banks steamed iln the tun, and Innumerable birds of all sIzch and colors appeared within forty eight hours. Tho frozen tundra lie same a wide moor, diversified with numerous bogs and lakes. It was co vered -witli moss, lichens, heath-like plants, dwarf birch, and millions of acres of cloudberries, cran...
DOING, NOT TALKING. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 July 1914
DOING, NOT TALKING. What mankind is awaiting is the bro therhood of man; . It's asked for, and prayed for, since e'er the world began. Men talk of it, they preach of it, from ev'ry point of view, l)ut those who nobly practise it, their number is but few. Why wait until coiiimunities resolve to live it out? It's just by ones and twos and threes such work is brought about. ICach one of us has got a world tied up witliin his breast, Ana wiu'.t we are and what we do should benefit the rest. True, "Laugh and the world laughs with yon. weep and you weep alone," But that's not the creed that's needed to give the old world tone. Ciive cheer to the man who's strug gling, a hand-clasp to him who's down, Our heartiest grip reserved for the man who's under fortune's frown; Don't hold aloof when trial comes—: j brotherhood's needed then, I For e'en the lonely and outcast still are brothers and men. I And living is better than preaching, j words are empty things j Actions are just wanted, magic i...
WITTY CHURCHMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 July 1914
WITTY CHURCHMEN. A study of the wits of the world re- ' veals the fact that there is a fair pro- j portion of clergymen among them, ' and a very good illustration of the powers of repartee 011 the part of . clerical celebrities is afforded by an I incident which happened when BlBliop ! Boyd Carpenter was addressing an j open-air meeting. | An atliiest asked the Bishop if he,: believed that Jonah waB Bwallowed ' by the whale. When I go to heaven. I will ask Jonah," said his' lordship. "But supposing," the other persisted, > "he is not there." "Then you will have to ask him," was the quick re- , tort. ! At a farewell dinner to Dean John j (iregg, just made bishop of Cork; a j bottle of rich old Waterloo port, in- j 1 stead of making a rapid circuit, rest- I ed before the guest of the evening, i "Come," cried his grace of Dublin, from the . head of the table, "though you are John Cork, you mustn't stop' the bottle." The bishop of Cork replied, "I. sen your grace is disposed to draw ...
HORSES AND MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 July 1914
HORSES AND MEN. A Boston man tolls of .111 Innocent farmer who ouce sought out a phreno logist and asked him to read his bumpB. . In revealing to the farmer his tem perament as shown by the aforesaid bumps, the professor said:— "Your tastes are the simple, homely ones of the farmer. You are a far mer, are you not? Ah! I thought so. And I am right as to your tastes, am I not? You are sadly deficient in judgment, and have llttlo knowledge of human nature. Your Innocent and trustful disposition renders you an easy dupe to designing men, and your own perfect honesty- prevents you from either Buspectlng or defrauding anyone." The following week, it appears, the phrenologist bought a horse from the Innocent farmer. Although the nag waB old and In bad condition, It had been made to appear young and skit tish. Moreover, though the farmer had paid but £6 for the animal, he contrived without difficulty to unload him on the professor for £15. "It's wonderful," said the fanner to a friend, as h...
Football. KORONG DISTRICT CENTRAL ASSOCIATION. KORONG VALE V BRIDGEWATER. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 July 1914
Football. "Koiiong District Central - Association. Korong Vale v Bridgeyvater. The third match in succession was played on the local ground on Saturday, when Bridgewater visited Korong Vale to try and reverse the decision against them on their own ground. The home team, however, again proved too strong, and won rather easily. Both teams were slightly different from last Saturday, Korong Vale being without the services of Watts, while Manton was back in his old position, and two of the emergencies, 0. Hamilton and S. O'Toole made their first ap pearance in the places of Grieves and VV. Fisher. Bridgewater were minus their captain (Samers) and Penny, the places of both being hard to fill. Shortly after the game commenced it was evi dent that the visitors were again to suffer defeat, as the home team attacked strongly, and had the Riversiders acting on the defen sive practically from the begin ning to the end of the gam?. Bridgewater, however, when they had the leather in a good positi...
LUCKY WINDFALLS. Large Rewards for Small Services. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 July 1914
LUCKY WINDFALLS.' Large Rewards for Small Services. Some little time ago the Quintan Grand Opera Company landed in Mol bourne to commence a tour through the States of the Commonwealth. The horn-player was -Mr. Wllllnm Busby, formerly a soldier In the British Army. It seems that ten years ago Mr. Busby rescued from drowning a child who had fallen over Chelsea bridge. The father of the child hand ed him ten pounds, and said, "You will hear from me later." The Royal Humane Soci.ety also awarded Mr. Busby Its medal for so gallant a res cue. When the company stepped ashore at. .Melbourne a cable message was awaiting Mr. Busby. It inform ed hi in thai, the father of the rescued child had died and left him £7000 When the news was communicated to the other members of the to; pany they .gathered round the musi cian and gave him three hearty fiheers. A Nantyrich shoemaker and clogger named George Robinson had a wind fall as the sequel of an incident which occurred twelve years ago. He was the...
THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 July 1914
THE WORLD. The world is well lost when the world 1b wrong, , No matter how men deride you, For if you lire patient and firm mid strong, You will find it in lime (though the time be long) • That "the world wlieelB 'round be side you. If you dare to sail first o'er a new thought track, For awhile It will scourge and score you; Then, coming abreast with a skilful tack, It will clasp your hand and slap your back. And vow it was thero before you. The world means well, though It wander and stray From the straight, short cut to duty; So go ahead in that path, I say, For after awhile-it will como your way Jiringlng Its pleasures and beauty. —.Ella Wheeler Wilcox.
