LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 11 June 1914

i LADIES' LETTER. By "Irene" in Melbourne. There has just arrived in Melbourne a charming young heiress. She is of Semetic and Spanish extraction, and, though not quite unfamiliar with Aus tralia and things Australian, this is not her native place. Quite a roman tic story' is connected with her. Her mother, who is the wife of the head man in a big business organisation, was a Spanish heiress of good quality. She came to Australia years ago, a handsome, highly-accomplished young matron who had been used to moving in good society. Her dismay may be imagined when she found that in Melbourne there were then hardly any Jewish people received into the inner circle of Society, spelt with a big S. To be strictly correct, there , were just one or two Jewish families received, and they themselves were excessively exclusive. Those who call ed upon lier were of the pushing type, and not at all the class she had been accustomed to. She was as one os tracised, having nothing in common wnh those w...

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 11 June 1914

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. ! The Panama Canal, although not of- [ ficially opened, is already being used , ay ships, and waterborne traffic is passing through the canal. Thus, after ten years of labor and at a cost of over £80,000,000 the Atlantic and Pacific are united by a waterway with a minimum depth of 41 feet. The ad vantages gained by countries upon the Pacific by the construction of the canal are of great value, and the shortening of many trade routes is of infinite importance to the world in general. In centuries past the Isthmus sent Rich galleons to ancient Spain, And later De Lesseps the gold of France Poured out in her lap in vain. She seemed like a land of woo and death, Accursed by an evil star, Till the Yankee came, alert and game. To shovel at Panama. The work is done and the way is clear, As the long wet roadway free' Spans out and weds Atlantic surf To the blue Pacific sea. .he steamers cast their shore lines off, As the great lock gates unbar, And a wonder new for the...

JOHN RUDD'S SECRET. By C. D. Leslie. To John Rudd, busy nt his desk— he had just returned from' a flying business trip to the Continent—the card of Miss Bertha Heath waB brought by his secretary. The mil lionaire read it, wondering who she was, then his eye caught the address in the corner, and his face clouded, as though recalling an unpleasant me mory; after a long pause he bade Par ker admit Miss Heath. "I will see her alone," he added. The interview took place in the mil lionaire's house in Berkeley Square, much of his work being transacted there. A girl entered—a thin, frail figure in black, with frightened ..eyes and hesitating - mien.- ; Mr.i Rudd'.rose and .shook hands.-wlth cut*'civility. "I heard in' Dresden * of my -old friend's death.

A CHAPTER OF MISFORTUNE. The Story of Charles Tellier, the Inventor of Cold Storage. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 11 June 1914

< : r I A CHAPTER OF MISFORTUNE. The Story of Charles' Telller, the Inventor of Cold Storage. f A modest funeral wending its way through the streets o£ Paris last Oc tober carried to his last resting-place the originator of a great modern in dustry. Charles Tellier, like so many inventors, made fortunes for others, .while he lived and di-d in obscurity and comparative poverty. How the idea of cold storage first entered his fertile brain forms a curi ous anecdote. He called, some fifty years ago, on Baron Haussman, the "maker of modern Paris," to submit models of weaving machinery. It was ; a terribly hot afternoon, and the Pre i feet, chatting pleasantly to the engin eer, laughingly observed, "Better de sign a freezing machine. Now or never is surely the time." The subject gave Tellier food for thought, and a freezing machine he invented. After sundry ups and downs, a lost lawsuit, an imprison ment for debt, he saw his machine in actual working to produce artificial ice f...

WHERE NOBODY DIES. People with money and people without (that is when they can) has ten off to health resorts to prevent themselves being, earlier than they de sire, placed under mother earth. Bret Harte remarked in one of hiB storleo that he would like to find a place where no one ever died. According ,to the Gembrook Cemetery' trustees, : the Gembrook district Is just the place the American novelist was look ing for. The trustees have resign ed in a body because there is no busi ness dc ing in the burying line, and consequently, no revenue. In the past 40 years there were only two In ' terments, and they were pauper case3 j who had strayed into the district, not residents.. The trustees have accord ingly come to the conclusion that the district doesn't require a cemetery. I that the local "planting ground" Is I wasted, and that nobody in the dis trict is ever going to die and give them a job. Ab a health resort recommen dation this will take some beating.

The guest, however, failed to make her appearance, though a care ful search of the husband's pockets failed to reveal the note of invitation.
