PONY'S SWIMMING FEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 11 September 1914

PONY'S SWIMMING FEAT. The s.s. Loanda lay pitching and rolling in the West African surf off Accra, whilst cargo of various sorts was being discharged - over her sides into surf boats, manned by Kroo boys. Various shouts went up when a couple of bales of Manchester goods fell out of the slings and into the sea. Shouts of-glee from the Krooboys, but something stronger from the mate, who was in charge of unloading. The next load was a grey pony, which we had shipped at Las Palmas, consigned to a Government officials at Accra. Slings were fixed . under tii pony's body, and he was hoisted by rope and derrick, then lowered into the waiting surf boat 'which was pitching up and down. As soon as the pony felt his feet touch^the boat bottom, he started plunging about, and as these surf boats are little lar ger than a ship's boat, the expected happened. First the natives jumped clear of his heels into the shark-in fested sea, and the next moment the pony also, was swimming about. With shouts a...

MILL-BOY MILLIONAIRES. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 11 September 1914

MILL-BOY MILLIONAIRES. "I think I have succeeded because I cared more for my credit than for my clothes." To Mr. Frederick Weyer haeuser, the lumber king and "secret millionaire" of America, who died re cently, "is attributed this saying. It is probably true, for Weyerhaeuser, whose wealth is estimated at any thing up to £100,000,000, attributed his unusual success to his ability to gain and keep the trust of everyone with whom he" came into contact. Very little is known of the personal ity of Weyerhaeuser, whose - entire life-work was based on the idea of secrecy. He went to America when he was about eighteen years of age, and began life as a youth in a saw mill. Ultimately he bought the mill and laid the foundation of his huge fortune, when, while on a visit to Wis consin "forests, lie realised that, for all their vastness, they were not in exhaustible, and that within a com paratively few years the supply of lumber would be incommensurate with its demand. He. therefore began to b...

OVERDOING IT. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 11 September 1914

OVERDOING IT. "Yes," said the pert young lady, "men are becoming less polite towards women every day." "Oh, well," remarked the undoubted ly stout but charming young thing, "I'll be truthful. I can't say I have found men less polite than they used to be. Why, only yesterday, when I got into a tram-car, no less lhan three gentlemen rose and offered me their seats." "But wasn't that overdoing the thing dear?" smiled the red-cheeked girl. "Overdoing it, Miss Brown!" cried the stout lady. "I don't understand you. To me it seems impossible to overdo a courteous action." "Yes; but there was no call for three to offer their seats," said the other, "when two would have been quite sufficient." Has sorrow knocked at your door? Has circumstance foiled your wishes? Still there is life to be lived. Wait not till you are in happier mood, but set forward at once. Perchance then the happier mood will, follow you. There is a Hindu -proverb which can give a good deal of solid satis faction in a hard ...

WHAT WAR MEANS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 11 September 1914

WHAT WAR MEANS. "All fair in love and war," runs the old saying, and Mr. E. A.Vizetelly, in his volume of reminiscences, "My Days of Adventure," proves the truth of it. Referring to the appearance of the railway station at Nantes during the Franco-German War, he says:— Never since have I seen anything resembling it. A thousand panes of glass belonging to windows or roofing had been shivered to atoms. Every mirror in either waiting or refresh ment rooms had been pounded to pieces; every gilt frame broken into little bits. The clock lay about in small fragments; account books and printed forms had been torn to scraps; partitions, chairs, tables, benches, boxes, nests of drawers, had been hacked, split, broken, reduced to mere strips of wood. 'The large stoves were overturned, and 'broken, and the marble refreshment counter—some thirty feet long, and previously one of the features of the station—now strewed the floor in particles, suggest ing gravel. It was, indeed, an amaz ing sight, ...

DICKENS' CAT. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 11 September 1914

DICKENS' CAT. Charles Dickens was a lover of animals, and like all true lovers .ie was likely to become the slave of his pets. Williamina, a little white cat, was a favorite with the entire house hold, but showed an especial devotion to its master. She selected a corner of his study for her kittens, and brought them in from the kitchen one by one. Mr. Dickens had them taksn away again, but "Williamina only brought them quietly back. Again they were removed, but the third time of their return she did not leave them in the corner. Instead, she placed them at her master's feet, and taking her stand beside them, looked implor ingly up at him. That settled the question. Thereafter the kittens be longed to the study," and they made themselves royally at home, swarm ing up the curtains, playing about the writing-table, and scampering behind | the bookshelves. Most of the family were given :a\vay; only one remained, entirely | deaf, and known, from her devotion to Dickens, as "the master's ...

PERFECT WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 11 September 1914

PERFECT WOMEN. If. any woman wishes to know if she is a perfect specimen of her Bex she has only to apply to the rules laid down for ascertaining the fact, and figure out the results. First as to height, tastes differ, but the Medicean Venus is 5ft. 5in. in height,' and this is held by many sculptors and artists to be the most admirable stature. For a woman of 5it. 5in„ 1381b. is the proper weight, and if she be well formed she can stand another 101b. without greatly showing it. When the arms are extended she r.hould measure from tip of middle finger to tip of middle finger just 5ft. 5in., exactly her own height. The length of her hand should be just a tenth of that, of her foot just a sev enth, and the diameter of her chest a fifth. From the thighs to the ground she should measure just what she measures from the thighs to-the top of the head. The knee should come exactly midway between the thigh and the heel. The distance from the elbow to the middle finger should 'be the same as t...

THE LADDER OF FAME. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 11 September 1914

THE LAD3ER OF FAME. r. "Then it's true—you are really go ing to be married?" The anguish that underlay the low spoken^ words—the stricken look of the woman who uttered them—escap ed the notice of the man, who stood with his face to the fireplace, study ing a picture on the opposite wall. But lie was.not thinking of the picture 1 at all, for in liis eyes was a dreamy look of happiness that told the Watch . er all too surely of the self-absorption that enveloped him. "Yes," he said, slowly and lingei'ing iy, as though he were feeding on the happiness that had come to him. "Yes, I am really going to be_ married; and" —turning to his companion—"I had to come and tell you first, Althea, .for we've been such pals, you and I, haven't we?" She drew a short, sharp breath, and turned to the window. "When is it to be—your wedding, I mean?" she asked, in a stifled voice. "In - June." . He laughed joyously "Beautiful, leafy ..June. What better . ..month could one have?" The words fell like ice o...

BIG BUBBLES. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 11 September 1914

BIG BUBBLES. How would .you like to be able to blow a soap bubble as big as a trunk? This has been accomplished by Dr. Boys (writes A. L. Hodges, in the "Associated Sunday Magazines of America"), who has made them 30 inches in diameter. With large bub bles, of course, many experiments may be attempted that are not feas ible with small ones. The solution used is the well-known Plateau's solu tion, which consists of one part ole ate of soda to forty of water, to this being added a third its volume of glycerine. As a large bubble needs a good deal of feeding while it is be ing blown, Dr. Boys used a serrated cambric cloth put as a rim on the bubble-end of his pipe. This was first saturated with the solution, and as the 'bubble grew and expanded it was fed from this. Scientifically, a bubble is a won derful thing. The film gets so thin just 'before it 'bursts that there are only a few molecules from one side to^the other. A bubble with the same d"ensity inside as the air outside is a pe...

"Is Miss Hazelton at home? The- trim maid-servant who appeared at the door of the banker's^substaiitial residence on Hampstead Heath re garded the visitor's lovely face with some curiosity and interest. She knew it well as belonging to Miss Al thea Sanden, leading lady and trage dienne at the Galaxy Theatre. "Yes, miss," she smiled. "Come this way, please.-" Althea, a vision of delight in tawny colored ninon and lace, followed her conductress along a softly-carpeted corridor until she came to a portiere hung before an open door. Here the girl paused and, drawing aside the curtain, "Miss Althea Standen!" she announced, in important tones, and stood admiringly aside as Althea pass ed in with a l'aint silken rustle and a delicious fragrance of violets: Already in anticipation the maid was describing in detail to her fellow servants the beauty and wonderful clothes of the famous actress, and, bubbling with excitement, she dropped the curtain into place and sped away to the kitchen. | At...

A Trio. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 11 September 1914

A Trio. It was company field-training. The captain saw a young soldier trying to cook his (breakfast with a badly made fire. Going to him, he showed him 'how to make a quick-cooking fire, saying: "Look at the time you are wasting. When I was on the West Coast 1 often had to hunt my breakfast. I used to go about • two miles in the • jungle, shoot my food, skin or pluck it, then cook and eat it, and return to the" camp under the half-hour." Then he unwisely added: "Of course, you have heard of the West Coast." "Yes, sir," replied the young sol dier; "and also of Ananias and Baron Munchausen, too." Don't keep all your cheerfulness for strangers, _and pack away your pleas ant manners as soon as ever you get inside the door of home. Vinegar placed in a bottle of dried up glue will moisten and make It li quid again. •_

"THE CATTLE KING." MAN WITH TOO MUCH MEAT. , Mr. .Sydney Kidman, the cattle king, has more meat than his family re quire. He told the Adelaide Abattoirs commission the other day that he had' about a quarter of a million cattle, but he couldn't tell the exact number, to within some thousands. He did not intend to muster them because the job would cost £20,000. He paid the South Australian railways each year £23,000 for carrying his beasts to market, but the herds were growing all the time, and he hoped to have many more.

BUSINESSES THAT BAR MARRIED MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 11 September 1914

BUSINESSES THAT BAR MARRIED MEN. Can a married man keep a secret from his wife? Some people think not, and among them are the heads of the firm who are building the won derful racing yacht with which Sir Thomas Lipton is going to make one more attempt to recapture the Ameri ca Cup. During all- those years that Lord Kitchener was busy perfecting his pians for his swoop upon the Mahdi I12 would not have a Benedict upon ins staff. If one of the staff wanted to get married, why, he had to find another job—that was all. As a mat ter of fact, there were singularly few dosertions for this cause. The Sir dar gave his men precious little lei sure for love-making. In businesses which depend for their success on secret formulas, mar ried men are sometimes refused em ployment.' One such has for more than a cen tury past been manufacturing a cer tain popular sauce. The firm has two •large factories, and employs a great number of hands, including scores of svonien. There are plenty of married men...

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 11 September 1914

LADIES' LETTER. In the work of the patriotic sewing circles and guilds, too much emphasis cannot be laid upon the importance" of keeping the material away from dust and its attendant microbes, for it may mean infinite suffering to the wearers in hospital later on. Also, no one suf fering from infectious colds or illness ; should work on the garments for sick j soldiers. It is only cruelty to allow j such carelessness, and the strictest j sanitary precautions should be ob- j served. None of the garments, nor the material, should be allowed on tha floor, unless there be a clean sheet, or clean paper, first laid down. Every precaution should be taken, and every portion of the garments and the working materials should be kept scrupulously clean. So much for the hygienic aspect. The other side 'is as important. The work should be cut out by someone who understands the task, and it should be seen that garments are in proportion. The monstrosities of gar ments in some instances sent to Sou...

DECEIVED MUSICIANS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 11 September 1914

DECEIVED MUSICIAN8.. Dr. Marage, in a note presented to the Paris Academy of* Sciences re cently, gave the result of experiments on the sensitiveness of the ear to musical sound. After -300 selected students and a score of musicians had listened to a piano, it was stated'that the instrument would be changed. The programme was then repeated. All declared the piano to be much su perior to the instrument they first heard. As a matter of 'fact, the same piano was used on both occa sions. -This incident led the scien tist to inquire whether musical critics are not often influenced by the con dition of their nerves. Discontent is not a normal condition ot the mind. No one !who is in good health, and doing the kind of work they like, has any business to be dis contented. '

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 11 September 1914

KITCHEN WRINKLES. . When a sponge is slimy, steep it in vinegar and water for twelve hours. To prevent milk from turning sour, drop into it a piece of loaf sugar. A bag of salt standing where there is a smell of fish will absorb the aroma. When making soups or stews, if there is too much flavor of one par ticular vegetable, a sprig of parsley added will equalise the flavoring. After washing lamp-chimneys, try polishing them with dry salt. This gives the glass a brilliant shine and prevents it from cracking. To ease a corn which is often pain ful from long standing, touch it with a little oil of peppermint, and the soreness will be wonderfully lessen ed. Dissolve a lump of soda in a little hot Water and add it to the blue water. This prevents the blue from settling in the clothes, and makes them beau tifully white. Starched material, even though it .kee'fJ* clean longest, should be avoid ed during warm weather. The starch prevents a free current of air passing through. Used in water ...

II. "I wonder what his name is?" specula ted Roger, thoughtfully, a week or two later, by which time he had consider ably improved his acquaintance with his neighbor in the third floor back— to which remark his wife replied, with a half laugh: "Curiosity, thy name is man! We women are grossly libelled in that par ticular; for, really, I haven't felt even a passing desire to lift the mantle of obscurity which he has drawn over his past life." "I, too, am innocent of curiosity in the ordinary sense of the word," ex plained Roger; "it is only that, al though I cannot give chapter and verse for it, I'm sure I've met our neighbor before. His face is perfectly familiar to me, and I seem to recognise certain tones and inflexions of his voice.' Yet for my life I can't identify him. ,1 seem very, very near doing it some times, just as one feels in a- dream, and then I lose the clue, and all is blank again. It's beginning to haunt me."

THE THIRD FLOOR BACK.! . i . At the sound of the opening of the front door Mary Beauregard put down her sewing and rose hurriedly to her feet, hope in her eyes, which died only too quickly as she sank down again into her chair, picked up her work, and resumed her stitch, stitch, stitch ing with the swift, regular movement of one well skilled in handling needle and thread. "I knew it was too early for Roger to come home," she told herself, with a sigh, "unless something unusual had happened. Poor fellow, he is so dauntless in his efforts to get work that it breaks my very heart to see him come back every night, worn out body and soul, only to start the same hopeless fight at dawn next day. Oh! it's the third floor back"—starting to her feet again, and opening her door to give a light to the dark staircase, at the sound of someone stumbling on the steep, uneven stairs leading to that landing on which her rooms were situated. The adjoining one had been recently taken by a new lodger, a...

GAY CITY SADDENED. BERLIN'S CHANGED ASPECT. THE REALM OF NAUGHTINESS. "Berlin is distressed." There is tre mendous signification in tue laconic cable message. Even those who have resided in the German capital for an extended period can hardly realise the awful meaning of the contrast pre sented. The progress of the city dur ing the past few years has heen phe nomenal. With the financial advance ment there arose iuxurious tastes umou'g all classes. Berlin was the gayest" city in Europe. It was pre eminent in the realms of naughtiness. The "Nachtbummel," with its excur sions to cafes, became almost la mode. The native born was delighted to put the query, "Have you seen Berlin by night?" It was notorious, and-every body regarded it as his duty to initiate all the visitors. All over the town there were restaurants where cus tomers could regale themselves with lager beer and a variety show. Even the summer gardens had well-trained orchestras. Many cabarets had re cently been opened. They...
