MARRIAGE PROPOSALS OF FAMOUS MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 25 June 1914

MARRIAGE PROPOSALS OF - FAMOUS MEN. Timidity can scarcely be said to have marked the wooings and propo sals of some of the men lwhose-names are household words, although the manner in which some of them "pop ped the question " provides a hint or two for those anxious bachelors who wish to propose in a pretty and ar tistic manner. Nothing could have been more charming than the way Daniel Webster proposed. Olne day, when kneeling before his lady-love, he suddenly dropped the skein of silk she was winding off his hands, and made with a piece of tape half a true lover's knot. The lady (a Miss Flet cher) completed it, and a kiss sealed the bargain. "Do you know, people say we are going to be married?" said Sir Alex ander Duff Gordon one day to the beautiful Lady Austin, and before she could reply hlie added, "Shall we make it true?" And they did. Tolstoi was bold as usual. He pro posed by letter, in which he wrote: "Tel me sincerely, do you wish to he my wife? But only if you cain say 'y...

GREATER THAN GOLD Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London & Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XVIII. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 25 June 1914

GREATER THA , G.OLD By L. T. MEADE, Author of "The Soul of Miargaret Rand," etc. Ir',,lished by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London & .BIelbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XVIII. These were truly happy days for the young couple-perhaps the hap piest d:lys of all 'before words of love had been spoken, and when the look in tile eye and the trembling smile round the lip betrayed what was pass lng in each heart. Shamus knew by this time that his father and mother would give their hearty approval to his marriage with Sheila Danvers, but something, hlie knew not what, de layed the words he longed to utter. Perhaps it was that Sheila looked so very young, so very childish in the simple clothes which had been chosen for her by tile Duchess. Whatever the reason, he scarcely ever left her, and that love, which had been only a small thing in comparison in London, grew mightily apace at Castle 0'D)oyle. Sheila's hiand trembled when she touechled that of Shamus; her color cha...

It' was an old banker who was speakingi and he showed his guest into the pri vate office. "IHullo," began the bore, "just drop ped in to have a talk about poor James.

BICYCLE V POLICEMAN'S HORSE. WARNED OF "INTERNAL DISORDERS." [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 29 June 1914

- BICYCLE V POLICE]IAN'S HORSE. WARNED OF "INTERNAL DISORDERS." Mr A Webber, of Flemington, writes: Press notifications have appeared indicatinc that the Chief Commissioner of Police is super seding the horse by the bicycle, as a means of locomotion for members of the force under his control, who are stationed in country districts where much ground has to be traversed. Pro bably the aim of the functionary mentioned is the reduction of monetary expenditure, but is that likely to ensue ? I have always thought that the pedalling action inseparable from bicycle pro pulsion is certain, sooner or later, to set up internal disorders in the riders. This specially applies to such well developed adults as policemen of all grades usually are. I direct attention to the fact that about a generation back, the treadmill, as a prison punishment, was abolished, a consensus of medical opinion having clearly Sdemonstrated that the s'vere strain on the nether portion of the body was invariably followed...

PASSING AWAY—THE HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 29 June 1914

PASSING AWAY-THE HORSE. The Chief Commissioner of Police has decided to do away witj| the mounted constables at Caris brook and Camperdown, and to have the horses replaced by bicycles: This may add additional force to the argument of the prophets who are always telling us that the days of the horse are now numbered. This remarkable beast, which has played a part in the world's flairs second in im portance only to that of its master, man, they are relegating to the list of the obsolete and useless. They declare that the sleeping force discovered in a lump of coal or a drop of petroleum is about to superside the dynamic energy of pulsing blood in animate machines self-stocked with oxygen. That steam, gas and electricity are steadily displacing the crudest of all motive powers residing in animal tissue is a matter of every dlay observance. Man-power is being supersede.d just the same as horse-power; but though machines that talk are already in existence, machines that likewise think ar...
