THE VILLAGE BLACKSMITH. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 April 1914

THE VILLAGE BLACKSMITH. Under a costly canopy rhe village blacksmith sits, Before him is a touring car, Broken to little bits, And the owner, and the chauffeur, too, Have almost lost their wits. The village blacksmith smiles with -glee As he lights his fat cigar; He tells his helpers what to do To straighten up the car;. And the owner, and the chauffur, too, 'Stand humbly where they are. The children going home from school Look in at the open door; They like to see him make his bills, And hear the owners roar; And the chauffeur weep, as they de clare They ue'er paid that bbfore. He -goes eacrmorning to the bank, And salts away his cash; A high silk hat and long frock coat Help him to cut a dash. But the owner, and the chauffeur, too, Their teeth all vainly gnash. The chestnut tree long since has died, The smith does not repine; His humble shop has grown into A building big and fine. And it bears "Garage" above the-door On a large electric sign.

IS UNIVERSAL PEACE POSSIBLE? [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 April 1914

IS UNIVERSAL PEACE POSSIBLE? By Frank Cufley. Many people throughout the world are cherishing the idea that some day war will becomie a thing of the past, anrd universal-peace will be establish ed. - Only a: few weeks ago a great' palace was opened, and thofisands of pounds have been given to the cause; but is the ideal state possible, or are the advocates chasing a phantom? Of course, / quite agree that'it ap pears possible to settle disputes by conference; but it is not appearances which tell, but facts. Does Nature permit universal peace? Darwin, who was perhaps the gratest nature student the world has ever produced, offers his theory of the survival of the fittest. How does this fit in with the ideal? As far back tin the history of the world as time will allow us to see the whole living things have been fighting for the mastery one over another. Not only animal life; it also applies to plant life. The lower.animals are in many cases protected from themselves, as in the bovine cl...

THE POULTRY YARD. SALINE REMEDIES FOR POULTRY [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 April 1914

THE POULTRY YARD, SALINE REMEDIES FOR POULTRY One of the cheapest, simplest, yet most effective of remedies is that known as Epsom salts, or magnesium sulphate. In the poultry-yard it is in valuable, and no poultry-keepar can afford to be without it, for its use as a first aid in many instances will ward off serious troubles, and save the lives of nmany fowls. Liver disease, or diarrhoea, when the comb is purple in color and a hen loses her appetite, is often remedied by a dose of Epsom salts, given about two hours before or after meals, the correct dose being half a teaspoonful 'per bird, dissolved in warm water, and poured down the throat. When Epsom salts are being given, it is advisable to reduce the food supply, in order that the medi cine may have the full effect upon the bird's organs. Closely allied to the above is Glauber's salts, or sodium Sulphate. This saline treatment is wonderful in improving the digestion and appetite of ailing fowls, and by its action on the intestin...

LIVING WITHOUT AIR OR FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 April 1914

LIVING WITHOUT AIR OR FOOD. According to Macdonald, a Scotch naturalist of wide repute, the turtle is the strangest of all living things and the most unfathomable. He can live in the water as well as out of it, and can seemingly go for indefinite lengths of time without air or food or light. He is neither fish nor flesh nor fowl, and yet he has the charactelistics of all three. As for his eating, it seems quite superflouous, for he can remain shut up in a barrel for a number of weeks and emerge at the end of the time apparently none the worse for the lack of food and light and air. The baby turtle seems also just as indifferent to its surroundings as its parents are. As soon as it comes forth from its egg it scuttles off to the sea. It has no one to teach or guide it. In its brain seems implanted the idea that unitil its arihor becomes hard it has no defence against hungry fish, and so it seeks shelter in gulf weed and feeds unmolested until its armor -gets' hard:- = By the time it ...

MAN-EATING FOXES. That the fox may be a man-eater ap pears from experlence in Upper Pied mont, Italy. A young woman, accus tomed to wander in the mountain gorges, disappeared, and after a time some articles of clothing belonging to her, surrounded with footprints of foxes,. were discovered at a point nearly a mile above sea-level. As there were no other tracks, it was concluded that,, while stupefied withli cold or fatigue, the woinan must have been attacked and eaten by these an imals. A shy young man-had been calling on the sweetest girl in the world for many moons, but, being bashful, his suit. progressed slowly. Finally she decided -it was up to her to.start some;, thing, so the next time he called she pointed to the rose in his buttonhole and said, "I'll give you a kiss for that rose." A crimson flush overspread his countenance, but the exchange was made after some hestitation on- his part. Then he grabbed his hat and started to leave the room. "Why, where are you goinig?' she ...

THE FIRST PEN. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 April 1914

THE FIRST PEN. In any large city, in the same block, possibly in the same -building, can be found in use to-day the first type of pen and the, latest. A fine hair-brush was the first instrument used by man for writing purposes. The Chinese latindrynian of to-day marks his tickets and keeps his a counts 'with a camiel's hair pen dipped in ink. Next door pfobtibly is & white merchanit who uses the latest malke of steel pein. Between the two, in the lonig his tory of the pen, came the reed, then the quill. Steel pens are -almost in universal use now, and are made by tlhe-ton and in increasiig voluime every year.

WIT AND WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 April 1914

*WIT AND WISDOM. The world seldom watches a man when he is doing good. Too many strings to a bowi will never make a marriage tie. A man need not fear competition. when he is in love with himself. People with small minds seldom have occasion to change them. A contented mind may be a feast, but feasts are indigestible things. Many a man in the swim finds it difficult to keep his head above water. If you want work well done, select a' busy man-the other kind has no time. The flly aof love is insecirity; lieo pie are always either falling in or out of it. Although otherwise stingy, .a man may be willing to lend a helping hand to himself. About two-thirds of the average man's laughter -is inspired by his own alleged wit. Love makes the world go round perhaps that is why the young folk are so giddy. The man that a woman says she does not care for is generally the one she cries over. The telephone girl may truthfully say that she is connected with the best families. Instinct is now describ...

ROUND THE WORLD AFTER A HUSBAND. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 April 1914

ROUND THE WORLD AFTER A HUSBAND. Regretting an engagement into which he had entered, a young Ger man named Dreher, an employe of a large Lancashire firm, threw up his situation and left for Berlin. No news of any kind reached his fiancee, a widow of some means, and, as her re peated letters remained unanswered, she soon became very anxious, when her uneasiness suddenly gave place to rage on receipt of an anonymous com munication, telling her of her faithless lover's flight and informing her of his address. Next day, accompanied by her brother, she left for Berlin, only to find on her arrival that Dreher, no deubt scenting danger, had fled south ward. Through Austria she traced him to Ltaly, where he was found in Rome, employed as waiter at a cafe. Over awed by the ibrother's threats, he con sented to accompany the couple to England, but contrived, on landing at Dover, to give them the slip. Once again was the. hue and cry raised, but Dreher managed to reach New York with his pursuer...

CARELESSNESS THAT COSTS MILLIONS. Expensive Thoughtlessness. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 April 1914

CARELESSNESS THAT COSTS MILLIONS. Expensive Thoughtlessness, There are few people responsible for more hiarm :in the world than the thoughtless person; and his plea, when the damage is done, "I didn't mean to," or "I didn't think," is poor consolation to those 'who have suffered from his thoughtless act. When, forty years and more ago, an old woman of Chicago left a lighted lamp in dangerous proximity to the heels of a cow, she little dreamt, we may be sure, what appalling results would come from such a simple act of thoughtlessness. The fire which was started by that over-turned lamp in the Chicago cow-shed swept in tor rents of devastating flame over the city, and before the last ember was quenched it had reduced to charred ruins three and a-half square miles of streets. More than 17,000 build ings were destroyed, two hundred lives were sacrificed in the inferno of fire, 98,500 persons were rendered homeless,' and. damage was done to the extent of £38,000,000. In Kansas there are ...
