A WITTY RETORT. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 November 1914
A WITTY RETORT. Curran was on terms of intense en mity with Lord Clare, the Irish Chan cellor, with whom when a member of the Bar he fought a duel, and whose hostility to him on the Bench he al ways said caused him losses in his professional income which he could not estimate at less than £30,000. The incidents attendant on this dis agreement were at times ludicrous in the extreme. One day, when it was known that Curran was to make an elaborate statement in Chancery, Lord Clare brought a large Newfoundland dog upon the Bench with him, and during the progress of the argument he lent his ear much more to the dog than to the barrister. This was ob served at length by the entire profes sion. In time the Lord Chancellor lost all regard for decency. He turneu himself quite aside in the most ma terial part of the case, and began in full court to fondle the animal. Cur ran stopped at once. "Go on, go on, Mr. Curran," said Lord Clare. "Oh, I beg a thousand pardons, my lord; I really took it ...

Overdoing It. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 November 1914
Overdoing It. Mr. B., who was dining out, bad done lavish justicc to the good tilings before him. By way of a graceful apology he remarked with a beaming smile directed towards his hostess: "I've always heard, ma'am, that the highest compliment one can pay the housekeeper is to eat heartily. You observe that I have been exceedingly polite." "Thank you, Mr. B„" smiled back the hostess. "Indeed, I think you have carried politeness to the point of flat tery." A good story is told of Lord Clon nu.'H and an Irishman who met each other once in a New York hotel. On being asked what part of Ireland he came from, Paddy replied: "Well, as a matter of fact, at one time 1 was one of your discontented tenants." Lord Clonmell glanced at him in surprise. "Yes," continued Pat, thoughtfully. "I 'was. But here are you and I drink ins together, while in Ireland I could never get close enough to you to hit yen with a shot-gun." In the old (lavs tlie proprietor of a music-hall always used to walk' up an...

WHY GLASS CRACKS. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 November 1914
I WHY GLASS CRACKS. Why does cold water crack a hot glass? The reason why cold water craclts a hot glass is exactly the rea son why hot .water cracks a cold glass. But this does not always happen. If you use a very thin glass, it will not crack either by cold or hot water. The chemist often uses little tubes made of very thin glass, which he calls test tubes, and you can put these in a flame and boil water in them without their cracking. You might think that the thinner i the glass the more readily it would crack, but really it is,just the other way about. When you fill an ordinary tumbler with hot water, the heat is conducted from the water to the glass, and the glass oxpands, or swells, 'but the heat has not yet reached the outside part of the glaBS, which stays as it was. And so, as the inner layer of the glass, which has been made hot, swells, it cracks the. cold outside. Just the opposite hap pens when a hot glass is filled with cold water; the inside shrinks before the outside...

STRANGE WILLS. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 November 1914
STRANGE WILLS. Many are the eccentricities to which wills have borne testimony from time to time. The Earl of Port arlington left instructions that ho should be buried with all his Tings on his fingers. The late Earl of Orkney stipulated that he should be taken j to the cemetery in an old-fashioned hearse, so that the coffin should not bo seen, and that no flowers should be placed on his grave. He also left word that his coronet would be found by his nephew and successor "In a' cellar" of his house. A Vienna millionaire, who died re cently, left a sum of money with which to defray the cost of twelve months' cleclric lighting, not only of his vault, but even of the very coffin in which ho was buried. Less particular was the Frenchman who asked that his 'body should be thrown into the sea a mile from the English coast. He was, too, so dis ciisted wit.ii his own country that he would neither be buried there nor al low any of his relatives or fellow countrymen to benefit by his death. H...
HEALTH AND SINGING. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 November 1914
HEALTH AND SINGING. By a Musical Professor. The crying need of to-day in the national life of our children is the adoption of the utmost simplicity in teaching, a reform which would ne cessitate the elimination of much of the purely mental training of young children, to be supplanted by a cur riculum in which physical hygiene plays a prominent part. Every child ought to be taught to sing at an early age, a study which, of course, involves the teaching of cor rect breathing. Taking only the pure ly physical point of view into con sideration, the student of singing in the first stage of life develops tiie vocal and hearing organs, giving to his speech greater depth and sweet ness. There is no method that can hn relied upon to produce free and deep breathing like the teaching of pinging, and there is, moreover, no greater fallacy in existence than the idea that singing taught to children at a very early age is detrimental to their health. Of course, it must not be thought that every ch...
STATESMEN AND LARGE FAMILIES. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 November 1914
STATESMEN AND LARGE FAMILIES. The revival of discussion on the falling ..birth-rate recalls some of the schemes of statesmen and others to encourage the rearing of large fami lies. Pitt, for example, said that they should make relief in cases where there was a large number of children •i matter of right and honor, instead ■of a ground of opprobrium and con tempt, and he added that, that would make a large family a blessing, and not a curse. Napoleon offered to take under his own charge one member of any family which contained seven male children. And Louis XIV., for whom no extravagance was too great, had exempted from public taxes all those who married before the age of twenty, or had more than ten legiti mate children.
INSECTS THAT GO INTO TRANCES [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 November 1914
INSECTS THAT GO INTO TRANCES Sonio insects iiaVe lits. They go in to trances of a cataleptic nature, and remain in that state for periods that last for many hours. Professor Peter Schmidt, of the Imperial University, St. Petersburg, has been observing this phenomenon in some specimens of an Asiatic species of "walking stick," ■which remains absolutely mo tionless throughout the day with its forelegs close together and extended in front of it. Professor Schmidt tried experiments with these sleeping in sects and found that when distorted into extraordinary positions they would retain these for a long time. Me stood them 011 their iieads, and they remained so for more than four hours. ITe placed them bridge-like across the gap between two books, and weighted them till their bodies bent like bows. He bent t.hem back ward and supported their two ends by stones, in such attitudes they rested for several hours. He cut off legs and heads; he sliced their bod ies, and they never gave a sign ...
DUMBALK. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 November 1914
DUMBALK. At the Dumbalk Public Hall on the 9th instant a farewell social was tendered to Sister Back house, who is leaving the Bush Nursing Association, and taking a position at Toora. A pleasant evening was spent by the large number present. Mr H. Pearson presented the guest with a travel ling bag, a gift, from the resi dents, and Mr Quick responded on behalf of Sister Backhouse. Mr Pearson referred to the year's work in the district so ably car ried out by the nurse, and said that she had mado a host of friends, and her departure was very much regretted. Vocal icems were given by Mrs Cantwell and Miss Phelan, a violin solo by Mr Downe, and the music for the dance was kindly provided by Messrs Quick, McWhinney and Kelso.
DIVINE LOVE AND MERCY [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 November 1914
•J^tVlNE I.OVE AND MERCY BY PASTOR RUSSELL. Text-: "And in .this mountain shall the Ltuxl of Hosts make unto all' people" J feast of fat things" (Isa. xxV., li). Throughout the Scriptures the word "mountain" is used ns the symbol for a kingdom Karthly governments are repre sented as mountains' and hills, while the Lord's government is represented as being established "in the top of the mountains." It is this mountain, or Kingdom of God, which is referred to in our text. It has not yet been established in the earth, and hence its blessed work has not yet been realised. We still properly pray: "Thy will be done on earth, as it is done in heaven." True, a beginning has been made, lor more than eighteen centuries since the Holy Spirit was bestowed at 1'eutecosl the church hasoecn in process of selection; and the church is sometimes called the kingdom, because its members, when glori fied, will constitute, the kingdom class— tile Bride—who will share with the lica "Venly Bridegroom the k...
SOUTH GIPPSLAND RACING ASSOCIATION FIXTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 November 1914
SOUTH GTPPSLAND RACING ASSOCIATION FIXTURES. The following dates were al lotted for the coming season :— Stony Creek, Wednesday, January 20th. Korumburra, Wednesday, January J7tli. Foster, Wednesday, February 10th. Leongatha, Friday, February 12th. Korumburra, Wednesday, March 24 tli Association. Friday, March 26th. Pig breeding is an important industry in the Leongatha and Korumburra districts, and pedi greed animals are often sent to different parts of Victoria from these parts, for the quality of the pic's is well known. Messrs O'Shannassy Bros., who keep the best class of stock procurable, last week received an order from the Department of _Agriculture, Sydney, for three boars and one sow. These left Leongatha on Thursday last, and were sent from Melbourne per steamer to the Hawkshury College, Rich mond, N.S.W., on Friday morn ing. This is not the first oc casion that the pedigreed pigs of Messrs O'Shannassy Bros, have been purchased by outside buyers to improve the breed in oth...

TOORA ELECTRIC LIGHT. New Scheme Proposed. FOSTER TO BIO INCLUDED. BIG INDUSTRIAL PROPOSITION The meeting cnllcd at Toora od Friday liight lust to consider the pre sent unstable position in regard to tlie Toora hlectric Light Co. was largely a>tendpd, Mr .Tas. Allan being elected to the chair. In opening the meeting lie explained thut n letter hud buen received stating tliat the Nightingali Co. could not continue to carry 011 and included an offer to dispose of the plant at £870, the terms being £470 cash and £400 yearly with interest. Toora people had already lost n deal of money in the venture in shares and owners of property had spent a good deal in in stalling the light. However, they could now embark 011 a new proposi tion, as Mr V. Crowley, of Melbourne, was prepared to form a new company, and had come up to lay his suggestions before tlieni that night.

SOUTH GIPPSLAND SPORTS ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 November 1914
SOUTH GPIP3LAND SPORTS ASSOCIATION. Th's association, which is destined to govern sports meetings in this province, for many years to come, is now tirmly established.- Rules have been drawn up and adopted, and it now remains for sports committees to recognlso the association in every way. When issuing programmes, the words "under the auspices of the South GippsUiud Sports Association" is a guarantee of good faith on the part or the committee, and an indica tion that the public may have every conlidence in the meeting. Breaking away from the League affords protection to the numerous local peds., who can now enter for sports with every confidence. Not that anything wrong was meant by the League handicapper, but local knowledge was lacking. District runners, who perhaps have not the time to so thoroughly train, as do professionals, will henceforth meet with encouragement, and get what ] all sports look for—"a fair deal." Crook performances, should such happen, will be dealt rigorously ...
