TINKERING. [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 16 June 1914
TINKERING. I .Jim lilinkenshook is always busy, ho ! novor knows an idio hour; but all ho does is weird and dizzy, and brings him neither wealth nor powor. Ho smarts a job with fiery ardor, and tires when it's three-quarters dune; and ho there's little in his larder, and he is always ; short of moii. Ho'always has a scheme ' so splendid it makes all other projects I \Vilt; "you'll sen mo classed, when ail is ended," ho telle his friends, "with Astorbilt.u He has no lazy bones within him, with energy he's ail athroh, but it' impossible to pin him i down to a sane and steady job. Ami j so his wife is doing washing, or beat ! inn nirpots in the .sun, while Hlinken I shoot goes wildly sloshing from one fool scheme to t'other one. Ho sei:s his neighbors going sanely to do their tasks from day to day; they prosper well, while lie is vainly inventing projects "bound to pay." The jilinkenshoots, in endless numbers, we see around us year by year; the cheery, futile tribe encumbers the whole ...
EL DORADO. [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 16 June 1914
EL DORADO. There is a land of pure delight, re mote from vulgar storms, where peoplo stay up day and night, inventing new reforms. TJie natives have no feet or hands, they all have run to jaws; be cause their blessed isle demands no otiKt* tiling than laws. They nothing do hut legislate aud I'raiuo new luws each day, and no one has to pay the freight; there is no freight \o pay. There talksmiths aye are in the van, aud lawyers are in swarms, and ho is held the greatest man who springs the most reforms. There no . ono plows aud no one saws or wields the toilers' traps, because they all are making laws to govern t'other chaps. No smoke from factory or mill is seen upon the breeze; reformers come along and kill such industries as these. If any fellor/ strains and racks his form to gain J. roll, they hit him with an income tax, and put him in tho hole. "You have," they say, "no earthly right to money you have earned, and to the lawyers, foolish wight, it all must bo returned; for what y...

"HEN-TAIK." [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 16 June 1914
"HEN-TAIIC." The "language" of monkoya lifts boon the subject of curoful study by natur alists; if Die "langungo" of lions has hitherto been. neglected it is probably because no mio Unow thoy had ft lan guage at till. It has apparently boon reserved fur Messrs. Edward Cnrpon tier mul George Merrill to mako tho momentous discovery that lions talk, a discovery which they hnvo ooimnunicAb ed to an Astonished world through the pages of- th.> "Humanitarian." It appears that tho lion vocabulary, chough not ;i very extensive ono, com prises twenty-three cries or notes, .of dis tinct Hound and meaning. ''These twenty-three notis and cries must do note a considerable degrco of intelli gence," the writers remark. "Thoro is a good deal to show that the surc ne.-ss and . precision of thoir instincts have, in tlie caso of domestic fowls, been adversely affected by thoir long dependence on man. Their reasoning power is also very weak, though whe ther ihis has been improved or deterio rated bj*...

PROCRASTINATION. You arc merely storing sorrow f ,r thu future, sago* say, if you put ofF till to-morrow things which should l>o done to-dav. When tlioro is a job unpleasant that it's up to ino to do, I attack it in the present, give a whoop and push it through; tlien my mind is froo troin troubles, and 1 sit before tho tiro pop ping com or blowing bubbles, or a whnnging at my lyre. If I said: "There is 110 hurry-that old job will do next week," there would bo a con stant worry making my old brain-pan creak. For a man knows no enjoy ment resting at tho close of- day, if ho knows that souio employment is neg leoted in that way.

ALL THE DIFFERENCE. The sort of sontimont which tho French .system of "manages do con venauco, or, in plain Kngfish, of mar riage for money, produces is well il lustrated by a story which a French paper tells.

THE OLD RAIL FENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 16 June 1914
THE OLD RAIL FENCE. Tt fitted well each rural scene and lent it- half its charm, The old rail fcuco, tho ragged fonce, that stalked across tho farm. It took its v.igaag course along-ran on without an ond, There cross-vinos found a placo to cling, tho birds knew it as friend; 'The lizards stretched themselves along its old gray raiJs to sun, And there the quail pipod up his call when each long day was done. This mossy-bearded pioneer has almost passed away, Where'er wo go wo seldom sco tho old rail fence to-day. It played its part and played it well another has its plaoe, Tho new wire fence that stretches on in slenderness and grace, But wo who loved it still shall miss its rugged, quiet charm, Tho old rail fence, tho ragged fence, that stalked across tho farm.

ANIMAL TRAINING. [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 16 June 1914
ANIMAL TRAINING. Most people have hoard of the cul^ brnted calculating horses of Elberfeld, who can do anything up to calculating Kqunre roots, in addition to hoing pro ficient at spelling. It would now ap pear, according to the Paris press, that although these feats aro actually per formed, they are due to a very clever device. An animal trainer has in formed tlio 'Matin' that l*as utilised a system of wireless telegraphy for training animals to do all sorts of bricks. The receiver is x>laccd in the horse's bridle, whilo tho trainer or an assistant manipulates the transmitter, , | and by a code of signals, which are not J ; (hificuit to teach, the animals can be [ ' made to give any desired "answer." It j | :s suggested that this system is u.scd ! in Mic ca.su of tho celebrated Elbnrlield ] horses. Prior to tho utilisation of wire j less telegraphy, tlio trainer mentioned | employed a method of signals by means ' of a tooth-pick.
ARE RED-HEADED SWEETHEARTS JEALOUS? [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 16 June 1914
ARE RED-HEADED. SWEET HEARTS JEALOUS? There arc varying degrees of eJor &lt;11 vile hair thai is mUiburimiuuieiy labelled ..rod," una 111 this connection the qua lities which are .supposed to run with red hair depend to a great extent on the* particular tone or shade, iironzc and ligut chestnut hair, for instance, are oiieii miscalled "red/' whilst, on the other hand, the misleading namo ..auburn" is applied to the most iluring locks imaginable. Monsieur Girouard, the French scien tist, asserts that all red-haired women are jealous, for the reason that they have* blood that is warmer and ilows more swjitiy in their veins than is the case with the blonde or the brunette. They are impulsive and hot-tempered also", but very affectionate. They make good friends and bad enemies, Ked haircd girls, as a rule, are popular with men, for red hair is usually accompan ied by a smooth, white skin and a per fect complexion.

MY FIGHT WITH A SPIDER. [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 16 June 1914
(V1Y FIGHT WITH A SPIDER. I r - .?-?.ir While convalescing from my first attack of swamp-fever in the Amazon jungle I hail occasion to study a most remarkable species of spider, which was a fellow-lodger in the hut I' then occupied. In size, the speci men was very respectable, being able to cover a circle of nearly sis in. ches in diameter. This spider subsists on large In sects, anil at times on the smaller varieties of birds, like finches, etc. Its scientific name is "Mygale avicu lariia." The natives dread it for its poisonous bite, and on account of its great size and hairy body. The first time I saw the pne in my hut was when i't. was climbing the wall in close proximity to my ham mock. I got up and tried to. crush it with my fist, but the spider made a lightning-quick move and stopped about five or six inches trgm whara I hit the waU. Several times I repeated the attack without success, the spider always pucceec'iing in moving before it could be touched. Somewhat out of temper...
