Still Generous. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 13 June 1914
Still Generous. It was her birthday, but he had r shed off to business with just the usual duty-peck at her upturned face, and she was left to worry the day through, oppressed by the thought that his once ardent love was waning. When he returned at night, wished her "many happy returns," gave her a full-size hug, and placed a tiny pac ket in her hand, she knew that she had wronged him. He was still the same generous-hearted Romeo who had wooed and won her. "And I thought you'd forgotten all, about it, Harold," she cooed, as she carefully unwrapped the package. Then a black-edged expression took a front seat on her features. "Pipe cleaners!" she gasped. "Yes, pet," he said; "I knew they'd | please you. You never did like me to use your hat-pins!" ! The "body is tuned by proper exer cise, and the mind by mirth.
The Trades Hall Council. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE RAINBOW ARGUS) [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 13 June 1914
The Trades Hall Council. (to the editor ov this rainbow argus) Sih,—The Socialistic Speakers may Bay anything at the moment, but they, have not the faintest intention to abide liv what they say. .Mr. Fisher is re ported to have said in Horsham "That any party of men joining themselves into a union are entitled to all the benefits held out in the Act1 for prefer ence to unionists." However, in prac tice, they shove the. Independent Workers' Union away frotn all privil eges. Mr. Il.innan, M.P.. last week, when before the Prime Minister re (5000 unemployed, took objection to Mr. Packer as representative of the Liberal Workers' Union, and said ''The Trades Hall Council is the only body qualified to speak on the unemployed question." Sir, this is plain talk in regard to what is meant by "preference"; any further comment is unnecessary. How much lnnper will we stand to be fooled bv IMeher and Co.? Yours, etc., PAUL MACKENZIE. ybill, 8/6/14.
FRUIT ONCE A DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 13 June 1914
FRUIT ONCE A DAY. Everyone ought to take a little t'ruit once a clay. The money is well spent. The maintenance of health always costs something, and l'ruit should be one item in the list. One may say that all ages are suitable for fruit diet. It is one of the pleasantest sights in all medical experience to watch a tiny baby responding to the proper treatment for ri«kets. Rickets ■is due to bad hygiene, bad food, bad air, load surroundings. In the diet for the rickety baby fruit-juice plays' a very important part. If a baby does not appear to be thriving, and yet has nothing very definite the matter, the addition of a little fruit-juice to the daily dietary will often be found very useful. A teaspoonful of orange-juice or 'grape-juice taken three or four times a day is about the right am ount. It may be varied according to the age and size of the child.
MR. WYNNE'S SUCCESSOR [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 13 June 1914
MR. WYNNE'S SUCCESSOR - The regrettable retirement of Mr. Agar Wynne, who does not intend to seek re-election for Balaclava, will leave, a vacancy in the Cabinet. The method by which it will be tilled is already being discussed in political circles. There is very naturally a feeling that another Victorian should be offered the portfolio, in order that the repre sentation of this State may be maintained. The only other Vic torians in the Cabinet at present are Mr. W. H. Irvine and Senator McColl. One posfibilitj' is that Mr. Kelly, who is now an honorary member of the Ministry, in charge of the Home Affairs, department, may be invited to take a portfolio. Among the Victorians regarded as likely to be offered either a port folio, or an honorary position, in the. Ministry, as a result of Mr. \Vynne:s retirement, is Mr. Samp son, tiie member for Wimmerai Air. Sampson has. had a long experience of political life, and has always stood high in Parliament, lie is, moreover, a country member...

PIONEERS OF EMPIRE. Adventures Among Cannibals. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 13 June 1914
PIONEERS OF EMPIRE. Adventures Among Cannibals. "Of the many gallant men," the late Lord Shaf-es'bury once said, "who have done heroes' work as Scouts of Empire, I know none who bore n braver heart through more perils than .Tames Chalmers, who was the pioneer ami virtual founder of British New Guinea." H ever a man was born for adven ture it was surely this non of an Aber deen stone-mason, who was cradled one August day in 1841, in an obscure fishing village on Loch Fyne; and who seems to have imbibed a passion for roaming with the first breaths of sea-air he drew. Before he had entered his teens, James Chalmers had made a local hero of himself by saving two lives at great risk to his own, and was known as the most fearless lad in the district. It was an unkind fate that condemned him for a few years to a stool in solicitor's ofiice at lnver ary; and it was a glad day when em ancipation came; after three years' training, he was sent away to the far South Seas as missionary to Rara t...
CHAPTER II. The Old, Old Trysting Tree. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 13 June 1914
CHAPTER II. The Old, Old Trystlng Tree. Old Neil Galbraith had fallen on sleep, listening to the crooning song of his wife, Jean. It seemed as if, at the last moment, the storm fiend had relented, and had kissed the -lips-' into a smile. But for Jean Galbraith it was the beginning of a long dark ness that would never lift till the world's Saturday night of toil should usher in the Sabbath morning o! e'ternal rest. But she had her two boys left, An gus and liric, and after the funeral they comforted her, saying with sobs "Dinna greet, mother, you've us twa left." Angus, the elder, was a big raw lad of fifteen when it happened — i lad of bone and muscle, thew and sin ew. He had no aptitude for books, but already he could manage thf* great herring boat almost as well as his father. He was quiet, slow, phleg matic, and there was an underlaying strain of sadness in his nature which sat' ill on shoulders so young. With the other boys he was no favorite, and they allowed him to wander alon...

A BROTHER'S LOVE By GRAHAM BROWN, Author of "Tlie Soul of Lucille," "The League of the Sacred Scarab." etc. Published by arrangement with Gassell & Co. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER I. The Storm Fiend. The skipper of the "Guide Me" sat at his wheel peering through the thick smur of blinding snow. Tlia howling tempest hid all sight of land, and no fog-siren, however lusty, could be heard amid the crash and roar of the elements. Yet in truth, old Neil Ualbraith, skipper and owner of this stout "zulu" fishing boat, was many leagues from friendly harbor, tossing and heaving and scudding along in the welter of the raging North Sea, stirred to fury by the winds in their fierce sweep across from Norway's crags and uplands. Huge waves, green and angry, de luged the little boat as she bored her nose into every mountain wall of water, and, to save himself, the old man at the wheel had lashed him self to his seat with many cords. One of the crew of seven had already been washed overboar...
