REAL MEANING OF "AT HALFMAST." [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 3 April 1913
REAL MIEANIN?P OF "AT HALF IMAST." Perhaps you have noticed that whenever a prominent person dies, especially if heo is connected with the Government, the flags on public buildings are hoisted only part of the way up. This is called "half-mast." Did you ever stop to think what con nection there could he between a flag that was not properly hoisted and the death of a great man ? Ivrer since flags were used in war it has been the custom to have the flag of the superior or conqulering na tion above that of the inferior or vanquished. When an army found it self hopelessly beaten it hauled its flag down far enough for the victors to be placed above it on the same pole. This was a token not only of slbmission, but of respect. In those days, when a famous sol dier died', flags were lowered out of respect to his memory. The custom long ago passed from purely military usage to public life of all kinds, the flag flying at half-mast being a sign that the dead nian was worthy of universal respe...

ADVERTISING ON TOMBSTONES [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 3 April 1913
ADVERTISING ON TOMBSTONES There are some people who try to make money out of anything, as the Inscriptions on some tombstones bear witness. Although tombstone epi taphs are frequently censored by the authorities, a good manJ have been passed that are more in the nature of pufflls for the vling than tributes to the dead. The widow of a man who died some years ago arranged for the following inscription to be placed o:er the grave of her husband : "I-lere lies . . . dear departed hus band of ... who now carries on hi, business of general outfitter, and al ways gives good value. Terms cash." That is tombstone advertising with a vengeance, and it is not an isola ted case. It has been recorded of a certain shopkeeper that he had Ills grave dug and the tombstone placed above it some years before his death. The tombstone was nothing less than an advertisement of his business, for the inscription ran: "Here lies John Emerson, the beat Hatter in the: State of Ohio." This tombstone, after rais...
A COMBINED SOCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 3 April 1913
A COMBINED SOCIAL. The combined social held by the Werribee branches of the People's Party and the Woman's branch of the People's Liberal Party held in the mechanics' hall on Thursday evening last, was not so largely attended as it should have been, notwithstand ing that the weather was rather inclement. It was anticipated that the executive of the People's Party would have sent at least one speaker, but they failed to do so, although they had pro mised. Mrs. Isaacs. represented the Women's Liberal Party and gave an interesting address which was frequently applauded. She was accorded a-hearty vote of thanks for her attendance. In glancing over the constitution and rules of the People's Party we find, according to rule 78 "That every branch shall at least once a year hold a social meeting, which shall, where practicable, be attended by a member of the Central Execu tive." Now why did not the head office carry out its promise and act up to the rules by sending a speaker. Surely a show...

THE LAST OF THE HOUSE OF USHER. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 3 April 1913
THE LAST OF THE HOUSE OF USHER. No sooner hab these syllables pass ed my lips, than-as if a shield of brass had indeed, at that moment, fallen heavily upon a floor of silver I became aware of a distinct, hollow, metallic, and clangorous, yet appa rently muffled reverberation. Com pletely unnerved, I sprang to my feet; but the measured rocking move ment of Usher was undisturbed. I rushed to the chair in which he sat. His eyes were bent fixedly beford him and throughout his whole counten ance there reigned J` stony rigidity. But, as I placed my hand upon hlis shoulder, there came a strong shud der over his whole person ; a sickly smile quivered about his lips; and I saw that he spoke in a low, hurried, and gibbering murmur, as if uncon scious of my presence. Bending close ly over him, I at length drank in the hideous import of his words. "Not hear-it 7--n.el-harwit,---arnt have heard it. Long--lcng-long many minutes, many hours, many days, have I heard it-yet I dared not-oh, pity me, ...
