LOVE OF LITIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 10 July 1914

LOVE OF LITIGATION. A mania Tor going to law seems to possess no inconsiderable portion of our population. The cause lists of our courts lengthen with every term, and judges regard with dismay the frightful accumulation of cases. Cynical people insist that the im mense number of young lawyers turned loose upon the community every year has something to do with the tremendous impulse that has been g'ven to litigation within the last few years. Immoral glaziers out of em ploy have been known to incite idle boys to break the windows of exem plary citizens, with a view of creating a demana for the services of a "panes taking" class, and it is asserted, libel lously, perhaps, that people who live in glass houses are egged on to throw stones at each other by newly-fledged counsellors, who hope to profit by the damage. However this may be, -it is quite certain that the proportion of litigants to the population at large is much greater now than it was ten years ago. To be sure, the demand fo...

BUYING THE ENGAGEMENT RING. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 10 July 1914

BUYING THE ENGAGEMENT RING. A most amusing thing is to watch a man buying an engagement ring for his sweetheart. He is modeBt. He tceis as if the shopman will suspect that he Is engaged if he does not take care. He believes that the faintest suggestion of what he really wants Is luntamojunt to disclosing the name of the girl and all about their devotion. "Will you let me look at some rings?" "Certainly, sir." A pile of male rings is laid before him. He pretends to examine them critically, but the expression on his face tells that he is quietly wonder ing how on earth he is going to get a lady's ring under the pretence of buying one for a man. Thoy are passed over in review. He selects none. He walks over to another case. "What are theBe?" "Oh, these are ladies' rings." "But they'll do for gentlemen as well? I rather like that pattern." "Certainly," blandly answers the shopman, who Is used to that sort of thing. At length the young fellow tries them on his finger. He never picks one ...

THINGS WE TAKE FOR GRANTED. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 10 July 1914

THINGS WE TAKE FOR GRANTED./ We have been so long accustomed to living in civilised Boclety that a hundred nnd one conveniences which are used by us every day of our lives never strike us as being ours only by virtue of the fact that a gradual pro gression in the total amount of hu man knowledge has made them pos sible. There are so many things which we are accustomed to use and which we never have to do without that it seldom occurs to us that, once upon a time man had none of them. Take, for instance, the houses in which wo live. It is as certain as any thing can be that there was a time when no houses were built. Man was in such a primitive state that he had not the least conception of the build er's art, and all he could do to obtain some amount of shelter from the wind and rain was to hide within caves in the rocks and cliffs. Those caves In deed were the first primitive homes of mankind. We take our fireplaces for granted. There was no fireplace in the cave home of the cave-ma...

"HORSE POWER." [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 10 July 1914

"HORSE POWER." It is not everyone who knows the exact meaning of the term "horse power" as applied to steam engines. The following is the explanation given by Professor Farey in a book on the steam engine: - The machinery in the great brew eries and distilleries of London was moved by horses, and the proprie tors of those establishments, who were among the first- to require Mr. Watt's engines, always inquired what number of norses an intended engine would replace. Consequently Mr. Watt made some experiments on the strong horses em ployed by the brewers of London, and found that a horse of that kind, walk ing at the rate of two nntl niie-linlf miles an hour, could draw one hun dred and fifty pounds avoirdupois by means of a rope passing over a pulley, so as to raise up that weight, with a vertical motion, at the rate of two hundred and twenty feet a minute. This exertion of mechanical power is equal to raising thirty-three thousand pounds-or five hundred and twenty eight cubic feet o...

LIVESTOCK MAKES AGRICULTURE PERMANENT. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 14 July 1914

LIVESTOCK MAKES AGRICUL> TUBE PiiiliMANENT. Every true fnmor desires to fol low a system of agriculture that will not only keep up the fertility of tho Innd bat, where possiblo, improve it There are ways of keeping tho farm '.ii to its G'lginnl fertility without livosloi-k, but ij is far easier, moro effective and moro profitublo when livestock is kept. Livestock not only belongs on every farm for the bene ficial effect it has upon tho soil, but because it brings forth a greater do main! for knowledge and understand ing which in itself is attractive and interesting. Furthermore, livestock gives an opportunity to feed a large amount of material which would bo wasted so far as food for humanity is concerned. Professor Geo. C.

Smothered in Limestone. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 14 July 1914

Smothered in Limestone. An extraordinary fatality occured at the Fyansford dement Works, Geelong, early on Saturday, when Albert Emond, one of the employes, was asphyxiated in a silo of crushed limestone. Emond, who was a single man, 21 years of age, living in George street, Newtown, with his brother, was employed as a laborer at the works, and on Saturday morning was one of the shift which commences at midnight and finishes at 8.a.m. It is surmised that jthe pulverised stone was not pouring freely down the chute at the bottom of the silo, and that Emond was endeavoring to rectify the defect within the silo, when the con tents suddenly commenced to run too freely to allow of Emond's escape. He was suoked down the centre of the body of crushed stone, and no one missed him for some time. When a search was made a boy saw Emond's hand protruding through the top of the stone within the silo. Assistance was at once summoned, but fully an hour had elapsed before the unfor tunate man's body...

Life too Lonely. The steamer Riverina, from Auck land, brought news to Sydney on Saturday of the abandonment of Sun day Island, or Itaoul, by tlio settlors thcro after an occupation ot 36 years. Sunday Island lies about COO uliles north of Auckland. It was discovered about 1837, and in 1878 was occupied by Mr and Mrs T. Bell, who have now left their home of half a lifetime in response to the importunities of their family and relatives, who havo tired of the simple life. A party of lifteen in all was picked up by the Now Zealand Government steamer, Tutanckai. The island is about the size of an ordinary sheep run, but it has a splendid climate, and after years of industry Mr Bell had turned the place into a tropical garden with plants and seeds which ho had secured from Tahiti. The life, however, was ex tremely lonely. The only boats which called at the island were those from New Zealand at remote intervals looking for castaways. As the chil dren grew up they made periodical visics to...

Eight comrades -tnrted at 5 p.m. to carry hiui over the steep, mountainous country to liauriinu. When they had proceeded live miles they secured a vehicle, but ilii.s broke down owing to the rough nature of the country. The party continued the march, sometimes through the dense bush, at times over rough clearances of piled up logs, ai;d frequently up to the knees in mud. The night was bitterly cold, and the tlarkne&s in the bush was a great handicap, the whole party frequently stumbling over logs, missing their footing . anil being precipitated down.. slopes. Thoroughly worn -out the party reached Raurimu at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, and Woreley was placed on the train and conveyed .to Hamilton ' hospital. A six months' record of t...

His Golden Text. A Sunday School service was held in church a few months ago, and tho teacher had thought that in order to make the service more impressive it would lie a good plan to have six year old Johnnie go to, the rostrum and repeat the golden text of the morning. This Johnnie consented to do. -The golden text was, "I am the broad of life." ? When it came time for Johnnie's part of the programme he arose from his seat with calm assurance, and walked boldly down tho aisle to tho rostrum. Once upon the rostrum, with the sea of faces confronting him, Johnnie's calm assurance sud denly left him. Things looked entirely different from the platform. He he sitated, standing first on one foot and then on to the other. Finally, in a shaking voice, he shouted: "I am-a loaf-of bread."
