A Strange Client. [Contributed.] [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 9 December 1914

A Strange Client. rContributed.l In these oroughty times the loeai bank manager has many strange visi tors, and so:r.c of them with stranger requests, but his imperturbable calm re mains unruffled. Even the presence of a 4ft brown snake in the banking cham ber on Thursday last did not upset the serenity of Mr L. Douglas. It seems that some descendent of the Tempter of Eve had been up to some of his pranks and was about to endeavor to obtain an overdraft to get him out of his difficul ties, and, knowing the state of the m>ney market and the likelihood of a p lite but firm refusal, determined to secrete himself in the porch behind the door until the bank had closed and then help himself after ho had administered a powerful soporific from one of his fanj;s to either the manager or teller. The reptile, however, was giver, no chance either to ask for an overdraft or to prove the eliicacy of his venom,, fo-.' he was discovered, and as soon as Mr Douglas wa3 advised of his presence he n...

The world is eager for something now, which, however simple it may be,' will save labor, or expense, or do things better. Let it be moro convenient^ or promote pleasure—reduce waste. People who handle things in every day use are the natural inveutors of better things, and the natural capitalists of to-morrow. Read the splen:lid advice that J2dison gives. Learn ihe procedure as to pa tenting in the chief countries,—then secure, your own legal monopoly for your rights by becoming a patentee. 2.

FOR WOMEN (By "/Vmbiusiuo.") It is a pity that there is not some punishment which can be meted out to oone of the most offensive types of women that exists = a type that nearly every neighborhood unfortunately knows—the woman who takes for her life creed the fatal words, "I thought   it my duty to tell you" and spends   her days contusing what sho covers over by the much-burdened word "duty" with what is nothing more nor loss than the pettiest spite or the most ma- licious curiosity, and a desire to gos- sip and meddle in other people s affairs.   It is bad enough when this woman 111 Uict« suileriug upon older people, but H is, nntortunatoly, nil too olten tlio cuso that this typo of womuu picks out HUJh children or young pooplo as marks lor hor dogenrato tongue. larticularl. happy is this gossip-loving woman when she cam toll souio happy child th.it tlio woman she thinks is hor real mother is only hor stop-mother, or that she is an adopted chi...

BOORT. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 16 December 1914

BOORT. While the wind was blowing its hardest on Saturday afternoon Mrs Virtue's house caught fire, arid al though the brigade and lots of willing hands arrived very quickly nothing could bo done. It was a wooden structure, and was in ashes in a very short time, nothing whatever bjing saved, and the family were left with just what tboy stood up in, but luckily are insured for a small amount-, which will help them to get a start again. When the brigade arrived it was found there was no water on, through someone's neglect, and no doubt, there will be some inquiry made to lind out who is responsible. The greatest dilliculty was experi enced in saving J Foster's bouse, which was only about 26 or 30 feet away. There happened to be a cask of water which Mr Foster had for his horses, and this was splashed over the walls and saved the house. The walls wero all scorched and would soon have been in a blaze, and the result would have been that the two next bui dings, occupied by Mr Hos- j king...
