FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 11 September 1914

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. < • { It is related in London that an American multi-millionaire, Mr. Regin ald Vanderbilt, arriving penniless iji London, had to borrow a sovereign from a hotel clerk. That is set down as a result of war troubles, but though it may be an event in London, there is nothing out of the way, to a man who knows his Melbourne," in a millionaire wanting to borrow much less than a sovereign. This scribe has met John D. Rockefeller's nephew wheg that gilded youth would have l>awned his soul for sixpence and sold it outright for a long whisky and polly. He has also met two Astors and' a grandson of Pierpont Morgan, any one of whom was willing to hypothe cate his whole inheritance for two shillings and sixpence in silver coins. What guarantee was there that they were the millionaires they represent ed themselves to be? Precisely the same guarantee that the hotel clerk had of his visitor's identity, when a person bearing a wealthy air of assur ance marched in...

NATION CARES FOR SOLDIERS. DIFFERENT TO THE GERMANS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 11 September 1914

NATION CARES FOR SOLDIERS. DIFFERENT TO THE GERMANS. The Duke of Marlborough, observing a soldier leanlpg pensively on the butt end of his muBket just after vic tory had been declared at Blenheim, accosted him thus: "Why so thought ful, my friend, after such a gloriour victory?" "It may be • glorious," re plied; the brave soldier, "but I am thinking that all the human, blood I have Bpilled this day has only earned me four-pence." That was an incident of old-time Englisi warfare. The na tion learnt a good lesson from Blen heim—the soldier liad to be paid and fed well; he has been practically ever since. The plight of many of the Ger mans is similar to that of the Eng lish guard of the story. They are out fighting in these enlightened days for the miserly pittance of two shillings a Week, and out against their will. They have everything to lose through their patriotism. The Englishman has also much to lose, but hot his all. If he should be one in the disaster he has the great consolat...

THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT. By FRED M. WHITE. ... Published by arrangement with Ward, Loclc & Co. Ltd., London and Melb. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XVI. A Sporting" Chance. Gilray thought hard-as lie looked at Daniel Harley. So these people were thieves,' after all. Nobody but a criminal with some-shady proposi tion-would have approached a man in this way. In ordinary circumstan ces, as a^ man of reputation, Gilray would have risen to his feet and left the house without another' word. There was no occasion to tell him • that Daniel Harley was going to make some dishonorable iproposal. The very attitude of the miser was.' eloquent of that, the furtive glance, the hoarse whisper, all were so many signs that something underhand was : intended. • Gilray hesitated. He knew perfect ly well that he was not to be permit •ted to obtain this "money he needed by legitimate means. People do not. scatter sums of five' thousand pounds I : ; as one scatters crumbs for the birds. Neither w...

THE MILLION UNIT. VASTNESS OF MODERN WAR. QUESTION OF ENDURANCE. CAN ANY NATION STAND IT? [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 11 September 1914

THE MILLION UNIT. VASTNESS OF MODERN WAR. QUESTION OF ENDURANCE. CAN ANY NATION STAND IT? (By Adam M'Cay.) The unit of number for the army of a great military nation to-day is the million. Look through the list of men available for war in European coun tries, and you will see tie following figures:—Germany 5,000,000, France 4,000,000, Russia 8,000,000, Austria 4,000,000, Italy 3,000,000. In each case this is a great proportion of the able-bodied manhood of the nation. The question arises how long can any people endure the, withdrawal of all those, men from its ordinary industrial machine, from the work of feeding and clothing their .dependents, and of supplying the country with the com mercial activity which is its life? Along 200 miles of country in France and Belgium two million men are esti mated to be entering into martial ac tion. These make up the actual fight ing lines, and their nujnber is hugely increased by the other armies behind them, engaged in supply and trans port. No...

CHAPTER XVII. A Great Invention. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 11 September 1914

CHAPTER XVII. . A Great Invention. It was indeed hard for Geoffrey Herepath to realise the full measure i of' his misfortune. But a little time before he had Been hie way clear to / the goal of his ambition. He had all the sanguine outlook of the inventor, but he had never been a mere dream er of dreams, had never waited his time and intelligence on Utopian spec ulation. His was a strongly, practical nature, and it was always the working value of the machine that appealed to him. ? Machinery! New and ingenious de vices for the saving of labor, contri: vances that turned waste material in to articles of ^commerce! ' In these things he saw the. way to fortune, to the employment of thousands of, hands, to power in the country, to an honored name amongst men. All these prizes of life Herepath would, he felt, be able to lay at Enid Har ley's feet! . So, at least it had seemed to him but a little time before. A week or two longer and he would be able to show the world how to make new rubb...

BEAUTY FOR ALL. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 11 September 1914

BEAUTY FOR ALL. Ladies, this is a special article for you. Of course you wish to be pretty j —-you would not be a woman if you ! did not. But it may be you object to the use of cosmetics. All men don't like the taste of face-powder, and many prefer to see these aids to beauty confined to the. ladies of the stage. Besides, to use cosmetics pro perly is an art, and you may not un derstand how to apply that delicate make-up which adds so much to the appearance of the woman who is past the first bloom of youth. Nevertheless, we think you will 'be interested in the latest beauty hint, which introduces a principle in cos metics which you may have never tried; for there is a way to use rouge which is warranted to be free from all objections, and is given on the -au thority of a medical journal of re pute. First go to any respectable, drug gist or chemist, and ask for rouge of good quality. It need not be ex pensive—just good rouge, applied, not with a bit of chamois or rag, but with a rabb...

I AMUSING INCIDENTS. "So,'' said the visitor, "you intend to become a physician when you grow up?" "Yes, sir," said the youthr "And why have you decided upon the. medical profession?" "Well, a doctor seems to be the only man that keeps on getting paid whether his work is satisfactory or not." Father and- son went for- a stroll on© sweltering day recently. As they passed a vendor'of ice-cream the boy turned to his father and said, lovingly:— "I vish you'd puy me some ice cream, fader. I do feel warm." His father gazed at him for a few seconds in mild surprise, and then exclaimed: "No, no, Ikey, my poy; but I'll tell you vot I'll do- I'll tell you s me ghost stories vot'll make your bloo'd run cold." A long-suffering husband had a wife who seemed to 'be perpetually talking. After driving him almost frantic, one evening with her conversation, she remarked: "Thaddeus, I suppose when I die you'll have a mausoleum built in my memory?" "I will do nothing o£ the sort," re turned the exasper...

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 11 September 1914

KITCHEN WRINKLES. If when frying fish of any kind a little salt is sprinkled on the bottom of the pan when it is hot and the fat boiling, the fish can be easily turned without breaking in the least. Cut-flowers will remain fresh long er if the stems are cut with a sharp knife instead of a pair of scissors. The latter compresses the stems and pre vents the water from reaching the top. I Before frying bacon, it is a good plan to put the rashers into boiling water for two or three minutes. They plump out to twice their ordinary thickness, and all chance is removed of their being too salt. Stains on white flannel can some times be removed by rubbing them with glycerine and yolk of egg mixed in equal quantities. Spread on the stain, leave for half an hour,' then wash the garment as usual.
