The Garden Sepulchre. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 26 December 1914
The Garden Sepulchre. (By a Banker) The conviction entertained ' of late yeafs by so many,. well quali fied. to judge, that- the traditional a~i'rd 'sites of -:Jerusalem:: cannot possibly be the actual spots where the great evtnts "commemorated took plaee, and: the synchronous discovery of an. ancient tomb out side the walls and in the immediate vicinity of the Hill of Calvary, or Golgotha, which, .it is believed, is the veritable Holy Sepulchre, is to many a matter of great interest. And- when the" great subject is ekamined in the light both of the 'sacred writings and of contempor "ry, history,' that conviction is p.iore and more 'strengthened and intensified; and the greatest wonder is excited that the legendary and -imaginary testimony should have been so generally and almost uni 'versally accepted, by which the :traditional site was assigned as the true locality:'of: the Sepulchre. Truly, beautiful for, situation is the royal cityr of Jerusalem. The visitor who would wish to ga...
A PECULIAR POST-OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 26 December 1914
&, PECULIAR POST-OFFICE. Sailing vessels still go round Cape Horn, just, as they did in the six teenth century, navigators finding it very difficult to make the winding passage through the Straits of Ma gellan. Sometimes, however, on account of stormy weather, ships have to hover off the Horn for the greater part of a month. Cape Horn is a big mass of rock, which rises abruptly from the sea and forms a small island. Upon one of the 'ledges of this rock there stands a covered barrel. Ship captains who arc . passing around the Cape send a boat 'ashore at this point,' if possible, to take from the barrel whatever mail matter is. going in their direction, ands drop in iit whatever is desired shall go in the opposite direction. This mail box is the world's most southern post-office, and it does not need a postmaster.
Sunday Corner. Christmas Lessons. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 26 December 1914
Sunday Corner. Christmas Lessons. Christmas should teach us to be Christ to others all about us, that from our very garments may flow the virture that shall heal and bless all who touch us. There are few people whom God. calls.to do great things for him, but the best thing most of us can do in this world is to live out a real, simple, beautiful, strong Christian life in our alloted place. Thus in our little measure we shall repeat the life of the Master himself, showing men some feeble reflection of his sweet and loving face, and doing in our im perfect way a few ..of the lovely things he would .do if he were. here. himself in our place.
YOU'LL REMEMBER THIS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 26 December 1914
YOU'LL REMEMBER THIS. Jaggers and Snipson were walking home together when Snipson said i *Wait a tick.' I've forgotten some-i thing my wife told me to get." "What is it ?" inquired Jaggers. "I've forgotten what it is I've for gotten." "My dear chap, . you can't forget what you've forgotten, if you remem ber you've forgotten what you can't remember." I . know; but what can I tell the wie. Shall I say I didn't forget to get it, but I forgot what it was I had to remember to get ? Or shall I say I had forgotten what I had for gotten to remember riot to forget ? She's sure to say I shouldn't have forgotten to forget it !, Hallol I' remember now." "What! Remember what you've forgotten ?" 'Yes. It's. a .pound of sugar. I remember what I forgot, andI" re member what I had forgotten I had forgotten." Then a tired couple journeyed to, the nearest grocer's,._
BIG DEALS. Some Famous Spot-Cash Transactions. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 26 December 1914
BIG DEALS. S ---•---4 .Some Famous Spot-Cash Transactions. The sudden purchase of the Picca dilly Hotel for the sum of :£500,000 is a remarkable instance of a huge concern changing hands, in a few moments. It was easy enough for Mr. Mallaby-Deeley to draw a cheque for half a million, but the compli cated nature of the deal is only ap parent when one tries to- realise what half a million of money really is. But half a million down is by no means a rec'ord. There .have been numerous sales .of great English es tates during the last twenty years, and more than £500,000 has been paid on at least two occasions,. One es tate alone-the Kensington-realised over £600,000, and.,th. whole trans action., did not cover two hours. Even within the past three months two estates changed hands for £250,000 apiece. Mr. Pierpont Morgan has been as sociated with maniy big deals Some years ago he was shown a collection of" old masters, and promptly .pur chased the .lot for one millior pounds sterling, dra...

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. Honey in the comb eaten freely, is a :.?pital' prevention of constipation. Scotch broth is greatly improved by the tddition of a dessertspoonful of sugar. For patent leather or glaco kid boots, iurniture cream makes an excellent polish. Gloves should not be removed during a all. Remove stains from light materiuis by -ubbing with a piece of clean white ndiarubber. Flour thrown upon burning paraffin Sill instantly extinguish it, while water )nly spreads the flames. Maidenhair fern can be kept green for s considerable time by singeing the ends ,f the stalks. Always shrink braid by wetting it thoroughly before putting on the gown, either for binding foot or trimming.

After washing the. hair, and before combing it, rub in a little vaseline; it makes the...

'A COMPLAINT. To the Editor Sir,--;As. a visitor, my sense of propriety has been disturbed at the unseemly ., noises in - the main street late at night by parties of young military recruits. How is this ? I quite understood that these young, soldiers were required to. be in their, camps not later .than 10 p.m. So boistrous have these young fellows been, that for a time myself and family have been unable to rest until long after midnight.

MANURIAL EXPERIMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 26 December 1914
MANIURIAL EXPERIMENTS. The following "conclusions" have been arrived at by the Agriculur l Chemist of New South Wales (Mr. F. B. Guthrie) as a result of five years' experiments conducted, at the Wag a State Farm, "with a view to deter mine the most suitable manuring for wheat. 1. On new and fairly good land the addition of quantities of superphosphate (2 cwt. 2 cwt. per acre) alone gives better results for the first few years than mixtures of complete manures. This initial advan tage disappears, however, after the first two or three years, and a com plete manure is necessary to obtain the best results. 2. The use of nitrate of soda, or of sulphate of ammonia, alone, has no influence on the yield, and it would appear that superphosphate occupies the same position as a manure for wheat that n:trate of soda does in Europe. 3. Basic slag is equally effective with superphosphate, and has the ad, vantage that the beneficial effects continue for a longer period. 4 Potash salts, though appa...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 26 December 1914
THE doubt has frequently been expressed as to what kind of season Queenscliff and Pt Lonsdale should have ihis year, meaning whether it should be spoilt by reason of the drought, the war, or the inclemency of weather. This is a question of live ;interest to the resident, and. .especially to the business man, the latter having, most probably, strug gled with a great degree of iritre pidity through an unprofitable wnter, for business at the -seaside, in most cases, is slow-and 'hard 'to conduct in winter-time. We can not just here answer with any Icer-, tainty the vital query, but we can assume also that there is no doubt but that the influences of war and: drought will be felt by iis to a very great degree,but there is no reason to take' the extremely pessimistic side; and-" codnlude everything will be failure; rather let us look upon the I brighter side-for there is a bright side-and by ,our usual diligence, deserve and expect that there will be little variation with the past..
