Sad Drowning Fatality. On Saturday afternoon last a man named George Whitehouse met with a sad death on the farm of Mr D. Geary, at Borung, where he was employed. From information to hand it would "ap pear that deceased, who was a married man with seven children, was told by his employer that he could cart some firewood for him self, and he set out to attend to this work. Having procured the horse and dray it is presumed that Whitehouse drove to a dam to water the horse, when the ani mal got into deep wator.

It was not •known what had become of him until the following morning, when he was reported missing, and on search being made the horse was found dead in the dam. When this discov...

Opening of Slate Parliament. THE LIBERAL OUTLOOK. [Contributed.] [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 July 1914
Opening of Swia Parliament. THE LIBERAL OUTLOOK. [Contributed.] Sir Alexander Peacock, the new Pre mier of Victoria, steps into office almost unnoticed. The'average elector is much more interested in the fortunes of Mr Watt and Or Salmon in Bala clava, in the smallest happening con nected with tho Fodornl Fight, than in the whole Policy of Liberalism in the State House, Sjr Alexander Peacock and his colloaguqs may not regret that the battle nnent preference to unionists, the cleansing of the rolls, the rights of the Senate and so forth, wiU absorb all except a few till the fifth of September has come and gone. But they will as suredly bear in mind that their work is just as important as it would be were the eyes of the electors on it.

DON'T CROSS YOUR LEGS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 July 1914
DON'T CROSS YOUR LEGS. "Don't cross your legs" if you wish to avoid appendicitis, is a theory ad vanced by several noted surgeons. In fact, one goes so far as to say that if people never crossrd tlioir legs the (lread complaint would entirely dis appear. The. facts are these. Crosslin; the legs crampB and squeezes the delicate vermiform appendix. The appendix Is irritated, and inflammation sets in. Intense pain comes, and then, sudden ly and silently, you are on your hack, the sweet and heavy fumes of chloro form begin to numb you, and the ap pendicitis specialist bends over youY with a sharp knife. When washing china with gilt upon it never use soda. Rub a )Utl« soap on the dishcloth to innko a nice lather, then rinso in clear cold water.
SUCCESS IN COWARDICE. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 July 1914
SUCCESS IN COWARDICE. "I attribute whatever success 1 have had to my cowardice. I have always feared to wade In so deep that It was' difficult to wade out." Tills unusual comment on a' suc cessful career was made by a man who 1ms just retired from business iit Die age of eighty-one aft,er making a fortune. Docs it pay in the long run to be always caroful? Two of London's most prominent 'VuiHlnesH men do not think so. One o£ thorn, AI r. II. Gordon Selfridge, ad vanced the opinion that twentleth ccnlury nerve coupled with good judg ment is one of the first elements of success. "Human nature la so mar vellously complex that any one quality does not really mean much. It does not pay to bo foolhardy. The man who never ventures never does big tilings. There is one wofd which is the keynote of success In business to day. ft Is Initiative." Mr. A. \V. Carnage, when questioned on the subject, said he did not think that the word cowardice was the right one to use. "I should rather call it pr...
LITERARY DOCTORS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 July 1914
LITERARY DOCTORS. The fact that the celebrated Amer ican physician, Dr. Silas Weir Mitch ell, who tiled recontly at Philadelphia, had a distinct reputation in the liter ary world as a poet and novelist, calls to mind several other Instances of re lationship 'between .pill and quill. Dr. Mitchell's best novel was "Hugh .Wynne, Free Quaker," which deals with the period of the revolution; and has created almost as much interest as some of the stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doylfi, who got his ideas for "Sherlock Holmes" while walking the Edinburgh infirmary under the eye pf that remarkable surgeon, Dr. Joseph Bell. Another Scottish doctor, Dr. John Brown, was the immortal author of ''Rab and His Friends." Ricardo Ste phens, the author of "The Cruciform iMarlc" and "The Wooing of Grey Eyes," practises and writes in Brora, Sutherlandshire, in the heart of a deer forest. Sir Frederick Treves, who has achieved the highest eminence as a surgeon, has since become one of the most widely-read aut...
WE DIDN'T KNOW. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 July 1914
WE DIDN'T KNOW. "Johnny's gone to be a nangel," a little girl, with eyes wide with awe and wonder, confided to a visitor at the house or mourning. "Johnny's ray brother, and I didn't know he was goin' to be sick and go away last night. On'y yesterday he was here with his coat all tore where he'd been playin', and his hands scratched. He 1 wanted a bite o£ my apple, and 1 wouldn't give him any. I wish now I had, but I didn't know he was goiu' to be a ^nangel." Poor Tittle sister! That is what we all say afterwards, "We didn't know," and oh! how our hearts ache over the scratched hands for which we for got to show any sympathy, and the apples we sclfiBhly refused to share! We were busy, tired, impatient, and our own hands were smarting. We I thought our burdens heavy, we want ed to be helped ourselves, instead of helping others, and the little plea at our side met no response. We dldn^ know It was the last plea, but now wo can never forget the wistful eyeB which followed us that day. ...
POINTS ON PALMISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 July 1914
POINTS ON PALMISTRY. Smooth, conical lingers lire a sign of talkativeness and levity. Strong, knotted lingers show pru dence and capacity. A palm too slim, narrow, and feeble indicates instinct without capacity. If the palm is too large the person is coarse and animal-like. If the outer-joint of the Angers forms a knot, the person has well-ar ranged ideas. The individual who has knots at the middle joints of the lingers always has a place for everythir,g and every thing in its place. Intellect belongs to knotted fingers, grace to smooth ones. The person whose lingers arc smooth and pointed is guided wholly by in spiration, and never has a reason for what he does. The hard, wrinkled hand which is opened to its full extent with diffi culty shows intractability, a mind without pliancy. Large hands mean a close attention to minute details. Broad nails show the owner to be bashful and gentle.
FAMOUS WIDOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 July 1914
FAMOUS WIDOWS. News comes from Knoxviiie, Ten nessee, of the death or "Parson" Brownlow's widow, nt the age of nine ty-five yearB. Few people ltnew that until so lately there remained this liv ing link with the Tamous "fighting parson" of war times, whom Tennes see expelled because of Ills bold at tacks upon secession, but afterwards recalled to bo its governor. Yet how many widows of distinguished men have survived their husbands so long that they have seemed to trail phan toms of history through the living re alities of a later generation! In the town of Charlotte, North Carolina, Mrs. Stonewall Jackson is still living. It is nearly thirty-eight years since Custer's last light, yet Mrs. Custer is alive and well. .»lrs. N. P. Willis died only a few years ago in Washington, though the literary career of her bril liant husband reached its height long before the civil war. The widow of Jefferson Davis lived until 3000.

CHAPTER X. Looming Clouds. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 July 1914
CHAPTER X.' Looming Clouds.. A week had passed, and onco mora it was a Saturday night. During all those days Angus Galbralth had never been in Port Cralgie. He had sent a short note to his mother saying that lie intended to fish from Faitlilio all the week, but that ho might be homo 011 the Saturday, and to Eric, .at least, the message was welcome. The little toy harbor was crowded with boats, and from the tall masts the herring nets hung in streamers. In the midst of the steam from the tanning tanks fishermen with long poles were lifting their nets, and were toiling up the long, tortuous roaci from the harbor to the links on the top of the cliff. Somo of the earliest arrivals had got the length of oiling and polishing their boots, and the more blithesome wore dafilng with the girls at tho end of tho jetty. But gradually, as tho night fell, tho men went home, tired with their week's work, and the har bor became almost deserted. Angus Galbraith sat 011 a spar, painting his buoys. Wit...

Love's Sacrifice. The wild, unearthly scream almost seemed to stab tl\e silence, and Angus Galbraith folt a cold shudder pass through him. He held his breath to listen, and once again the cry, as of a soul in distress, rang out clear, chal lenging. At the scame instant, through the gloom he caught a glimpse of some thing white and gleaming, and it. flashed along the narrow street, and disappeared round one of the houses. "Elsie, Elsie," he groaned, In the agony of his soul. His mother's words were still ring ing in his ears—that mother who had leaned on him for support In all her years of loneliness, that mother for whom he would have died. lie had surely plumbed the depth of human woo and anguish. He staggered into the house like a drunken man, hardly knowing what he was doing. Eric was...

| . WOMAN'S WORLD. THE TOILET. A well-known woman traveller says: "What amazing tollottes the rich woman makes to-day!

REDUCED CIRCUMSTANCES. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 July 1914
REDUCED CIRCUMSTANCES. It is a pathetic thing to see people struggling with reduced circumstances —that is, a reduction of income, and an inability to live as they have been in the habit of living. But much heart-break would be spared if when such adverse fate comes people would only at once settle down and accept the new and smaller income, and live on what it will easily give them, rather than to try to "keep up appearances." Every day we see people trying to live in a large house with one cheap maid-of-all-work, where they had kept, and kept busy, three competent servants, or even more— trying to keep up with the society that they can 110 longer afford to move in, by scrimping and toiling every where, and having no happiness and 110 peace and comfort; giving an occa sional dinner or lunch, and going with out necessaries to pay for them; mak ing over old gowns indefinitely in or der to accept invitations, and carrying hearts that ache harder and harder all the time. If only they w...
CHAPTER XI. The Serpent Shows Its Tooth. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 July 1914
CHAPTI3U XI. The Serpent Shows Its Tooth. The winter months had passed, and now blustoring March with its storms was upon them. The fishermen of Port Craigie were beginning to buzz around their boats again. Eric was in London, and from many sources these humble folks at homo had assurances that he was yet destined to dazzle the world by his gift of song. Angus Gaibraith, the fisherman, turned wearily to his life of toil again, carrying in his si lent heart that load that woyld never lift. As for Elsie, when he saw her face he had his reward. She had got back her old, bright, laughing nature, and if ever a thought entered her mind of the days when she had seen into the inner depths of a strong man's soul, it was only as a tender memory that soothed rather than dis turbed her. For the first three months after the departure of Eric she had gone about the house singing softly to herself. Her only recreation was the piano— a gift from Angus. With industry that was indefatigable she pract...

"BUFFALO" JONES. KNOWS WHAT ANIMALS THINK. Colonel "Buffalo" Jones, tlio fam ous American huntsman who In his time has captured lions, rhinoceroses, hippopotami, and panthers alive and unhurt with a lasso, haB gone at the head of an expedition to tlio French Congo to attempt to bring home to Europe, for the first time, a full-Bizod gorilla. W. Beach Thomas In Lon don "Dally Mall" writes as follows about this remarkable man: Buffalo Jones is certainly tlio most astonishing conqueror of animals that has ever lived. Daniel and Samson, as Mr. Roosevelt said, were nothing to him. I csked him the secret of some of these conquests, his scientific as well as his physical conquests, which make tame anything that Ballantyne or Mayne Reid concocted; and at the age of seventy he is sotting out with a list of new adventures that would more than fill an ordinary llfotime. The conquests aro as various as notable. He lias roped almost every wild animal there Is—rhinoceroses, lions, cheetahs, zebras...
