Gone to the Dogs. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 November 1914
Gone to the Dogs. Bishop Turner, during a Methodist conference in Atlanta, told a story about a missionary bishop among the Eskimos. "This bishop," he said, "attended a synod, coming south by sledges and canoe, a six weeks' journey. He was welcomed joyously, but, when he rose to speak, he said his church had gone to the dogs. " 'Yes, my dear brothers,' he went on, 'I had a church, a real church, last year. I had to build it to satisfy the zeal of my Eskimo converts. " 'And what a church I built! There is 110 wood in my diocese, and so we used whales' ribs for rafters, and wal rus hide for walls and roof. It was a good church; it held a congregation of 70. " 'And all went well with our church till a famine came—then the hungry dogs turned to one night and ate It.'"

His Forte. The seven-year-old pride.of the fam ily had concluded his recitation of "The boy stood on the burning deck," and the fond mother, turning to the unnerved visitor, remarked: "And I have been assured by really eminent judges, Mr. Jacks, that he closely approaches the late Sir Henry Irving in dramatic style, without, how ever,. any of that great actor's man nerisms." •I am not surprised to hear it," assented the victimised one, with a strained smile. "Mabel, also," continued the matron, blandly indicating a six-year-old mite of flaxen-haired precocity, "plays ex quisitely. Her rendering of 'Home, Sweet Home,' with variations, is not dissimilar in touch and feeling to Paderewski at his best—as you shall presently determine; while Egbert yonder (get your slate and pencil ready, darling), though barely turned four, draws engines and railway lines in a manner suggestive of Academy honors at no very distant future.

WHY ANIMALS ARE BUILT AS THEY ARE. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 November 1914
WHY ANIMALS ARE BUILT AS THEY ARE. W'licn you pull 011 a pair of kid gloves, has it ever occurred to you to wonder why the skin of a young goat e Itould make the most perfect of hand coverings, light, warm, pliable and, nbove all, tough? The thing is simple enough if you coiiio io consider the history of the ;;'oat tribe. They were always the pariahs of the herb-eating creatures. Being neither as swift as the ante lopes, nor as powerful as the buffalo, they were driven out of the rich low lands by the carnivores, and forced to fly into the thickets which coal the mountainsides below the snow line. There they found food and shel ter. Hut browsing among such stiff ant! close-set shrubs, any thin-skin ned animal would soon become one muss of sores and wounds. So gra dually the skin of the goat, toughened until the creature -was able to force its way through unyielding scrub without injury either to coat or skin. That is why goatskin makes such per fect leather. More than one animal owe...
ANIMALS THAT NEVER DRINK. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 November 1914
ANIMALS THAT NEVER DRINK. It _ would seem that water is so in dispensable to lite that no animals could exist without drinking. Never theless, Dr. Blanford asserts that the antelopes which live in the sand desert between the salt lake Chilka and the sea never drink. This has been doubted by physiologists, who deny that existence is possible in such conditions, but confirmatory evi dence is now adduced by Dr. Drake Brocktnan. It appears that since 1910 a troupe of gazelles have lived in the small island Saad-ud-Din on the side of Somaliland, where there is no source of water and where the annual rainfall is less than three inches, so that these gazelles cannot obtain water except after very rare showers. The vegetation is very poor and they cannot supplement the lack of water during the dry season by consuming roots and bulbous plants rich in liquid.
A DUEL WITH POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 November 1914
A DUEL WITH POTATOES. A noted preacher and "muscular Christian" was "Bill Bowman" of Ken tucky. At one of his meetings a local desperado raised a disturbance, and, being rebuked, challenged him to fight. Bowman accepted, and, as the chal lenged party, had the choice of wea pons, lie selected a measure of Irish potatoes as big as his fist for each man, and stipulated that his opponent must stand fifteen paces distant and that only one potato at a time should he taken from the measure. The desperado was furious at being thus freshly insulted and made an in dignant protest, but Bowman insisted that he was the challenged man and had a right to choose his own weapon, and threatened to denounce him as a coward if he failed to come to time. The fight took place on the out skirts of the town. Everybody who could walk was present to see the fun. The seconds arranged the two men in position by the side of a mea sure filled with large potatoes hard as bricks. Bill Bowman threw the first potato...
THE EYES OF KITCHENER [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 November 1914
THE EYES OF KITCHENER (By O. Henry, in "Everybody's Journal.") Dulcic worked in a department store. She sold Hamburg edging, or china dogs, or automobiles, or other little trinkets such as they keep in department stores. Of what she earn ed, Dulcie received six dollars per week. The remainder was credited to somebody else's account in the ledger kept by the Recording Bookkeeper. One afternoon at six, when Dulcie was sticking her hatpin within an eighth of an inch of her medulla ob longatai she said, to her chum, Sadie: "Say, Sade, I made a date for dinner this evening with Piggy." "You never did!" exclaimed Sadie admiringly. "Well, ain't you the lucky one? Piggy's an awful swell; and he always takes a girl to swell places. He took Blanche up to the Hoffman House one evening, where they have swell music, and you see a lot of swells. You'll have a swell time, Dulcie." Dulcie hurried homeward. Her eyes were shining, and her cheeks showed the delicate pink of life's—real life's —approac...
FORGED FOR LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 November 1914
FORGED FOR LOVE. The first bank-note forgery was committed for love's sake. Richard William Vnnghan. u .solicitor's clerk, wished to marry his employer's (laughter. One of the conditions im posed was that he should produce a thousand pounds and settle half of it upon his wife-to-be. He took a mouth's leave of absence, presumably to obtain the required money from his mother, but instead, spent the time in making an engraved impres sion of a .£20 Bank of England note. With fifty of these Sham notes, lie presented himself at the appointed time, and t.bo marriage arrangements were proceeded witl.. Unfortunately, he required some ready money, and put two of the false, notes into circu lation. They were promptly chal lenged and Vaughan was arrested. What was to have been his wedding day hr spent in the condemned cell, and he suffered the extreme penalty : at Tyburn in April, 1758.
BRITAIN'S MINISTERING ANGELS. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 November 1914
BRITAIN'S MINISTERING ANGELS. In the tinio of peace (says "The Queen") it is difficult to realise that one's country is prepared for war, and there are people who are fond of de claring that England is not fully equipped in all the branches of her Army and Navy. The awful sudden ness with which this war has de scended upon us lias put to the test all the services of the country, and they have • not been found wanting. Throughout the whole day on August i there was one continuous stream of men and 'women passing through the portals of the War Office and of the Admiralty. Crowds stood about 011 the .pavement in the hope of seeing and recognising any of the Ministers, and many of the officials at both offices had not been to bed all night, nor had had time to get any food in the day. Vet they were calm and courteous, and answered all inquir ies promptly. Men and women offer ing their services were told exactly what procedure to follow, and other inquirers were given answers as far as p...
ADVENTURE WITH A SHARK AT PORT WELSHPOOL. November 9th. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 November 1914
ADVENTURE WITH A SHARK AT PORT WELSHPOOL. November 9th. Last Wednesday evening a large shark was seen swimming about in the vicinity of the jetty, and greedily devouring any stale bait or fish thrown overboard during the pro cess of cleaning up the boats. There is no doubt that this was the same monster which gave Misses Janet and Nora Smith, daughters of Mr. W. B. M. Smith, of this port, such a trying time last Thursday afternoon. It is the custom of these young ladies to take a daily dip in the briny. Thursday afternoon being exceeding ly hot, and the sea very calm and clear, they ventured out into the channel, and were swimming to wards the shore a short distance apart. Miss Nora heard a loud splash and swish, and on looking round was horified to see a large shark in pursuit of her sister. When close to her it made a leap and turn, as is usual with a shark when about to seize its prey. In the meantime she had called to her sister, who immediately began to splash and shout, and ma...
War and Horticulture GERMAN SEEDS. FARMERS!—GROW THE SEEDS YOURSELVES. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 27 November 1914
War and Horticulture (JKIWAX* SKIiDS. FARMICIiS!—GROW THli SIC EDS YOURSELVKS. Probably few Australians realise, or even think,, when they are en joying a luscious cabbage, or a sweet, tender carrot, that they are indebted to Germany for these plea sures. And when the enjoyments of a glorious and many-hued garden constitute a feast to the eye and to the aesthetic sense, it will be hard for the observer to realise that he owes the burst of beauty to Ger many or to Prance. And yet these are facts! The great bulk of seeds used in Australia are produced in Germany or France. What are far mers an.d others going to do for seeds now the ■ war has dislocated trade? This is the time for the harvesting of seeds on the continent. Thousands of tons must be left un harvested, for the males are nearly all at the war, or attending to war business. There must be a Dearth ol' Seeds and corresponding high prices next season. Ernst Benary is an enter prising seed grower and merchant in Erfurt, in Germ...
