Football Chat. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 4 June 1914
Football Chat. [by JLvnr.ton,] Tho G.Y.JVL. season opened last Saturday, and from all accounts the quality of tho football was only second rate. AVanfc of practice was evident 111 every match, and numbers o£ men appearod to tliiuk tlmt they were the only oneu playing, but probably this fault will be dropped as tlio playors become accustomed to each other uml It now their respective places on the liold. Spectators and players agree that the Jield umpires assisted to spoil tlio games on Saturday by penalising all attempts at hand passing unless tlio ball was punched with tin- closed list. Absolutely fair parsing with ilio open hand was freo kicked every time. This interpretation of handball was [ agreed on (it is said) at a mcetiug of umpires held at Xumurkah ou the previous Saturday, but it is hard to believo that any sensible body of adjudicators would ou their own account ma lea an agreement to put u stop to one of the brightest features of Australian football. Ilumlbal'ing has bec...

Sponge Fisheries. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 4 June 1914
Sponge Fisheries. Fifty years ago practically all sponges* came from the Mcditcrran oan .Sea, but large quantities arc now produced in Honduras, Mexico, the Bahamas, nnd Florida, and the output from the waters of the Uni ted tttatefl is no great that com paratively few sponges, oven of the (iiu»r varieties required in surgery and chemical experiments, nro im ported. Along the Florida west const sponge fishing in ono of the oldest industries, having had its beginning several years before the civil war. From a small industry in whiclf fishing was confined to the shallow waters about Key West, it gradually spread north : ward along tho west coast nnd out to tho belter sponge beds in the 'deeper waters of the Gulf, result ing in a demand for more skill ! among the sponee fishers and greater i investment in sponge craft and | equipment. By the year 189'J, a fleet of over 100 taut schooners was busy gathering sponges from these waters, pressing as far north as tho Anelote Kivcr, 50 miles ...

Eevryone's Discipline. ■ * Tho morning is heavy and gloomy and dark, The daylight i» loath to be dawn ing ; I suddenly wake from a dream and its charm And angrily gaze nt the screaming alarm. It's hateful to rise in the morning. I'd like very much to go back to the dream, But Time and Life's buBincss arc stricter. I'd love to turn over again, but, in stead, With swift resolution I lenp from tho bed And try to feel glad as tho victor. it's everyone's discipline rising from bed, So people are prone to despise it. But still, when the morning is gloomy as lead, You'd gladly encounter and try to behead The person who dared to devise it. Yet when I remember tho pcoplo I know Who do not get up and need not to, It seems that they're very inclined to be blue— Not nearly so fresh and conteutetl as you. •So I'd rather get up when I've got to.

Cooked in the Sea. The steamer "Makambo," which re cently arrived at Sydney, reports that the whole face of Ambrym Is land (Now Hebrides) has been alter ed as the result of tho volcanic eruption there. Tho si to of tho Mission Hospital is now fathoms be neath tho sea, while.there are two miles of hilly country where there was previously sea. During tho eruption the sea was boiling, and turtles nnd fish rose to the surface cooked. Tho ship's officers describe the island as a seething mass' of lavn. Dr. Bowie, tho principal mis sionary on Ambrym Island, gives a J graphic description of the erup tions. One by one, he says, the mountains burst into flames, until ten volcanoes were emitting molten lava. There was no panic, however, among tho natives, who numbered 2,500 in the threatened districts of the island. Most of them were safe ly conveyed to Malekaln, twelve miles nwny, but over 100 people perished. Throughout the process of embarka tion the volcanoes continued in eruption. Some o...

Character in your Thumbs [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 4 June 1914
Character in your Thumbs Just fl.9 tho chin gives qualities to the face, so tho thumb marks tho personality of tho hand, and it is nn unerring index to a man's natu ral strength or weakness of char acter. Tho man with a long, straight thumb, squaro at tho tip, possesses good mental capacity, and can al ways be relied opon to carry out successfully any work with which he may bo entrusted. His tempera ment is even and judicial ; ho is a born governor of men, ' overcomes difficulties, carries himself with dig nity, and by his ability to concen trate nil his faculties of purpose, rapidly becomes a power among his fellows. if the thumbs be long, thick: and heavy at the tip, with joints pro minent. a tyrannical and cruel na ture is indicated, everything being viewed from an intensely selfish standpoint. A short, straight thumb shows ob stinacy and driving power. ]f very thick and heavy at the tip, a bru tish. unreasoning disposition will be noticed. A short thumb, tapering nt tho tip, den...
The Tabooed Tango. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 4 June 1914
The Tabooed Tango. There is nothing now in the step that has been taken in certain high circlcs, both at home and abroad, in regard to the Tango. As long ago as.-the December of 1037, the Archbishop of Buenos Ayres excommunicated one Senor de la Cuevamy Benavides, governor of the city, for dancing the tango in public. Kven then the dunce Was any thing but new. An authority in the Argentine states that the tango is named after a province in Indo C'hina, and that it originated there more than two thousand years ago. It was the gipsies who took the dance to Spain, from whence it reached the Argentine. One definition of the tango—given in a glossary of South American Spanish—is "CJathering o* dance of gipsies." The dance has not been improved by being civilised or modernised. As danced by the up-country Argen tines and the Spanish gipsies it is exceedingly graceful, which is more than can be said for it as per formed in many places in London.
Mistook His Man. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 4 June 1914
Mistook His Man. Sir John Fisher relates an amus ing experience he had one inspection day. Somehow he got separated from his official friends, nnd at Inst lost his way. He wandered about-, and eventually came upon a workman gently hammering a piece of iron outside one of the workshops. "Are the Lords of the Admiralty about here?" asked Sir John. "No, fear, matey," said the man, who did not know his rather care lessly-dressed inquisitor. "I'm hero doin' crow for 'em." ••(Vow ! What's that ?" "What, don't yer know ? Inside this 'ere shed my mates is a-takin' of it easy. When I sees someone that don't matter, I knocks soft, like now. ,liut when 1 sees old •Jncky' Fisher I knocks like blazes, and when old 'Jacky' pokes his nose inside they're' workin' like blazes, too.

PEOPLE WITH GREEN HAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 4 June 1914
PEOPLE WITH CiHEEN llAIH. It is n curious sight to see men with hnir of a vivid green colour, yet such are to he fount! in the districts surrounding the copper mines of Cuba, Chile, and other places where the ore is abundant ly found. (Ireen hair, in the cir cumstances, is not a fad, but is the severe result of men's surround ings. Investigation has proved that tho fumes and gases from the turnnces contain a certain quantity of ar senical matter, and this is what causes the very startling a/id re markable change in colour, though* the texture and growth of the hair suffer no injury whatever. In order to secure a more market able articlc the ore is roasted in J monster furnaces, and during the process it is some peculiar and mysterious emanation from tho smelted copper that eflocts this • chemical change in the hair of the ' miners, and turns it the vivid green ' of grass.
