NO IDLE TEARS. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 18 September 1914

NO IDLE TEARS. : An amusing story about Dr. Archibald -Pitcairne, the physician, Jacobite, and scholar, is told by Francis Watt in "The Boob of Edinburgh Anecdote." Doctor Pitcaire was not often a churchgoer, but on one occasion he took " refuge in a church from a shower of rain. The sermon was commonplace, but the preacher was emotional, and he wept copiously, and,, as it seemed to Pitcairne, irre levantly . He turned to the only other occupant of the pew. a stolid countryman, and whispered, "What on earth gars the man greet ?" "You would maybe greet your self," was the solemn answer, "if you was up there and had as little to say." 1946.

A Gigantic Aeroplane. i . "T A FLYING VILLAGE. A flying village-that is the im pression given to *those who see above their heads that amazing bi plane, the Ilia-Kourametz. For this gigantic machine, the invention of a little-known aeronaut, Igor Sikorsky carried sixteen people a few weeks ago in a record-breaking flight of eighteen minutes. It rose to a height of 300 metres- about 900 feet. The flight v?£artecl at the Korpusny Aerodrome, in St. Peters burg. ' . . Two days later Sikorsky accom plished a feat which , students of aviation consider still, more remark able.

This flight took pla'ce 3000 feet above the "ground, and lasted ' two hours and six minutes. This was a triple record made-for height, for duration, and for' flight with nine people aboard.

Mighty Intellects. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 18 September 1914

Mighty Intellects. I have often thought that the sum ming-up of a c-ertain coroner was about as neat as, well, could be, at an inquest where the evidence varied and contradicted itself in an astounding manner. The jury and coroner were equally lost as to which lot of witnesses to believe. However, the head of affairs in that village inquiry-room put the. mat ter tersely, and very neatly. " Gentlemen," said he, "if you believe the evidence given by the first > three witnesses, you will find the deceased died by his own hand; if you believe the testimony of the last three, you will find it a case of'his gun going o£f accidentally. For myself, I can't say which I . believe, as both may be wrong !" And the intelligent jury in due course brought in a verdict of ''Found shot by somebody or other!" Occasionally one member, at least, of the average coroner's eleven, twelve, or thirteen underlings at the inquest, gets in a good hit at the expense of others. Thus it came about at an inques...

How to keep Healthy. HINTS FROM CELEBRITIES. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 25 September 1914

HINTS FROM CELEBRITIES. Miss Marie Sturtholme is a firm believer in practising ju-jitsu, tlio Japanese form of self-defence and ?wrestling, for a few minutes daily. "Contrary to the general opinion, the life of an actress," she writes, 'is very far removed indeed from a sinecure. . . in fact, it is only by taking- the most rigid care of her | self from a health point of view | that she can possibly successfully ? fulfil all her engagements from year | to year. Thus, as, these days, her ! time is so fully occupied during | the day, the question ns to which is the best exercise to take in one's leisure moments to keep one's self "fit and well" becomes an all-im portant one. j "Exercise, I may say, experience has taught me during mv career on the. stage, is absolutely necessary, and, after trying all sorts and kinds, I have come to the conclu sion that ju-jitsu, the Japanese form of self-defence, is the "best possi ble" in its health-giving properties.

Do Men Exhaust their Originality at Sixty. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 25 September 1914

Do Men Exhaust their Originality at Sixty. Ehrlich and voir Behring have reached that age, and from all over the world congratulations have poured in upon them. The great demonstration seems tinged with a sad note as though these men had reached the end of their productive life. They will work on the old lines until they die, and we hope the final end will be many, many years off, but will the product be worth while ? We hope it will be great, but can a brain or body of 6ixty, cut out new trails in the wilderness of ignorance ? Osier showed how rarely it is done, and many thought that he said that men over sixty could not do anything at all. A great work may not be culminated until long after .that age, but great discoveries are marie by I boys. A i'ew oven believed that he J snid that men over sixty ought to | be chloroformed, though he himself J was nearly sixty at the time. Some| of his critics were too old to j understand what he said.

A Tortoise's Long Life. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 25 September 1914

k Tortoise's Long Life. Proverbially slow in every way, the tortoise is perhaps the slowest of all animals to die. Stories about toads found living in closed pockets of the solid rock may be discounted: but that tortoises live to be 200 or 300 years old is be lieved. In the hall of the Episco pal Palace of Peterborough there is preserved under glass the shell of a large tortoise. Records prove that it sojourned at Peterborough in the time of "seven bishops: John Tho mas, 174:7-57 ; Richard Terrick, 1757 ; Robert Ldnnb, 1764 ; John HinchclifTe, 1769; Spencer Madan, 1794: John Parsons, 1813; Herbert Marsh, 1819-30. Beside the shell lies the descrip tion, which says : "It is well as certained that this tortoise must have lived 220 years. Bishop Par sons had remembered, it for more than sixty years, and had not re cognised in it any visible change. It ate all kinds of fruit, and often a pint of gooseberries at a time ; but it made the greatest havoc among strawberries. It knew the garde...

Wild Cattle of Chartlet. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 25 September 1914

WHd Cattle of Chartist. Tho herd of wild cattle which ho- * longs to the Karl of Ferrers is said to he of an even purer breed 1 than that of Chillingham. Tho I theory that the breed is indigenous! appears to be supported by their j habits at the present day. When i alarmed, they start o(T at full gal- I lop for a short distance, then turn and face their :'oo in a semi-circle, with the bulls in front, the cows be hind, and the younger animals and calves 3t.ii 1 further in the rear. If further approached, these tactics, which arc- clearly those of wild animals, are repeated, or the ad versary is charged , and attacked. The food of the Chnrtley herd con sists of the very coarsest, grasses, and in winter of the coarsest hay, rushes, and dried bracken, provided for them in open sheds, which af ford a slight shelter from the cold winds which blow across the open park. The home of these cattle is situa ted on high ground which was en closed about the year 1200, and forms a portion of Chart...
