THE VIXEN, j By.l-EWIN FITZHAMON. Published by Arrangement with ...Ward, Lock & Co., Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XL Lady Pettigew's life became a round of going into new or beautiful 'houses, of meeting fair women and bravely clad men. It was all novel, wonderful, and so exciting! As for Angela, of sporting tastes, she was ibored to salted boredom by tie mountebanking business. It was only a rousing gallop in Rotten Row every morning ion her 'own good horse that nerved her up through the trying ordeal of Hying the Pettigew kite in the languid zephyrs of society. Now, behold, this was the time when the great Duche6sof Gawbor ap peared to .Dainty to be sitting on an inaccessible peak of the playground of life. For the Duclieas moved and rustled in an atmosphere tbreathoil by kings, .princes, and exquisite am bassadors. As to theatrical affairs, her ignorance rivalled that of the judge who once egged himself on to ask: "Who is Connie Gilchrist?" When the bomb fell, ...

CHAPTER XIII. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 24 October 1913
CHAPTER Xlir. Angela and Bobbie wanted to go to the raceB. Pettigew wanted to go, too, and wished to take hiB wife, but Lady Pettigew refused to budge. She was, she said, too busy with her great production, "The Jewel Rob bery," to spare even an hour. So Pett, good honest man, having consigned all theatricals to Perdition, ordered out the car. The real truth was that Dainty had received a letter the day before which caused a curious little flutter in that scientific gear-box—you could scarcely call it a heart—that animated her personality. Sibstone was rfch. He was a mil lionaire. Ernest—in her thoughts ehe already called him Ernest again—• used to be generous. If she could only, with propriety, give him a baste to form future calculations upon, ehe might not have to bother her pretty head quite so much.' over that three-thousand-pound guarantee to the Duchess of Gawbor; and in truth ber undertaking was beginning to weigh upon Dainty uncomfortably. The result was, that she penned an...
CHAPTER XII. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 24 October 1913
CHAPTER XII. ErneBt SibBtone received an invi tation to dine at the mansion of bis noble Chairman of Directors. At this function it was bia good fortune to sit next to a remarkably fine-looking girl, whose figure was ber own, whose hair was bright with health, and whose skin waa clear from daily exercise; she waB, moreover, free from, the affectation of the Dainty Dresdens; she neither talked in the phrases of tbe middle class, nor an gled for attention; indeed, ehe seem ed utterly indifferent as to whether she ever saw him again or not. Sib stone was used to being either pa tronised by supercilious women or bored by middle-class ones. He was piqued and interested by JlisB Bur ney, who talked agreeably. At length tbe conversation turned on a coming social event, the Gawbor-Pettigew theatricals, to which all those mys terious deities, "tha best people," were going, while the worst people were being terrorised into buying tic kets. Angela detailed the plot of the new play, to which Si...
DOMESTIC WORK. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 24 October 1913
DOMESTIC WORK. The increasing number of girla who confess to a dislike for, aild indeed refuse to engage in, any sort of do mestic service is causing much trouble to the present-day housewife. The modern girl of humble parentage hatea domestic work. The slavery of sweep ing and dusting and cooking and bed making is clearly an abomination to "her; she will have none of it. Far ra ther would she be cooped up in the desk of a shop or stuffy office, witb the eternal monotony of accounts, led gers and typewriting, or the fatigue-of standing all day behind a counter meas uring off yards of ritroon and tape and so forth to exacting customers, if at the end of all these hours she has the evening to herself, and can keep her hands unsoiled by what she rather scornfully describes as menial work. Menial work, forsooth! Is not all work honorable if done with honor able purpose?

TYPHOID FEVER AND HOLIDAYS. Typhoid fever ie a disease of youth, although cases, sometimes occur among children or middle-aged per sona, the majority of sufferers are be-, tween tiie ages of fifteen and thirty. It iB also a disease of the late summer months, and young people often con tract it after a long summer spent in the open air in the pursuit of health and strength. Since that is the case, parents ought to know what steps to take in order1 to avoid the danger o£ infection. . ' Those who can afford to go to large and well-conducted hotel9 and board ing houseB seldom run any more risk of typhoid fever than in their own homes. Some risk there still is every where, although Bince we have found out that the disease is preventable the risk grows less with each season. But for reasons of economy many people.are obliged to take their fam ilies to places where the nature of ty phoid and the proper means for pre venting it are not yet well understood.

By. L.EWIN i .FlTZHAMON. Published by Arrangement with Ward, (Lock ,& Co., Melbourne. All Rights. Reserved. CHAPTER XI.V. __It is. scarcely surprising that Lord Pettigew was rather later in getting home than he intended. . When he arrived Lady Pett ran and nestled in* her husband's. arras. Her face was charmingly pink. Beneath their heavy- fringes, downcast so that Pett could not see them, her blue eyes had expanded liito great black pupils. Dainty was. excited. Everything de pended upon carrying her husband by storm.. "Oh, Pett, darling," Dainty cuddled hp to him, softly, "what a long time you've been; such, a lonely little wifey." She looked up for a moment, and the unsuspicious, honest man hugged, her to-bis glad heart. He explained briefly the adventure. "And,I've had such a horrid shock, too," pouted Dainty, scarcely heeding the recital. \ "Darling!" exclaimed the honest man, holding her tightly. The darling laughed merrily. "Oh, nothing very bad; only a cheeky letter f...

World's Wheat Position ^Commenting on the world's "wheat supplies at the latter end of last Au gust, "Beerbohm," In his Corn Trade -List, expressed the opinion that un less there was a great change for the worse in cr&p prospects in North Am erica, ample* supplies for all require ments would he available for at least half of the coming season, and that buyers were not likely to trouble much about Argentina, Australian,' and In dian crops, unless unfavorable cir cumstances transpired. So far, that prognostication has been verified in lower English prices for cargoes, and weaker values obtaining for "futures" in both Liverpool and Chicago. La ter, in the same article, "Beerbohm" stated that the United States crop was estimated at 120,0,00,000 bushels larger than that of the previous year. The St. Petersburg Central Statistic Com mittee estimated the Russian wheat crop In the 63 European governments at 84,200,000 kuarters, against the pre vious estimate of' 38,200,000 quarters,...
Wheaten Ghaff. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 31 October 1913
Wheaten Ghaff, ^ There are still many farmers sup plying the wheaten chaff market- wlio cling to the tradition of cutting cropy into hay only after the g;rain has formed, instead of cutting it as it flowers. Wheaten chaff, not contain ing any grain, has ^realised in thop Sydney market £1 to £1/10/ a ton more than that containing grain. Mr. M'Keown, of the. Waggii Experimental Farm, lias related how the haymak ing ideas adopted 011 the farm have been scoffed aj, simply because the hay contained no grain, and was cut green. Yet the first wheaten chaff sent from the farm to Sydney realised about £1 a ton more than the aver age ruling price, while for the biggest oonsigninent ever made 10/ per ton more tlian the ruling price was ob tained. Again, a district farmer has received even a larger margin of- pro fit over others simply because he mar keted the chaff on the lines adopted at the. Experimental Farm. As a a rule, haymaking commences in the rWagga district, first at the Experi menta...

These figures do not harmonise with the assertion of officials of the Fede ral Land Tax Separtment that there will be a gradual diminution in the revenue for a number of years, but it is explained that some of the receipts credited to the year 1912-13 by the department. Commissioner M'Kay stated on Sat urday that as a result of the check) valuations made by the -departmental officials, many landowners had been required to pay additional sums. The financial statements lor each year were amende^ according to the variations made, and as a few changes had yet' to be effected in respect to the fSrs)# year, no complete balance-sheet had yet been prepared.
