Motor Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 5 August 1914

The value of a self-starting equipment upon a motor car will be recognised when we note the number of instances where ow ners of cars have received in juries through back firing of the engine. The Westinghouse system of electric self-starter and electric lighting on the Hupmobile cars j are two separate units. The system has been tried and proved in Australia since the latter part of last year, and the Hupmobile cars first introduced with the system, have never failed in giving satisfaction. The day, then, of broken arms by back firing, is past, when we note that we can get a perfect system of self-starter upon our car. With the above experience of Hupmobile cars, the system of which has proved so well can be readily recommended. The re presentatives of the Hupmobile car in Victoria and the Riverina are Messrs Dennys, Lascelles Ltd., who have garages both at Geelong and Elizabeth street, Melbourne.

CHAPTER III. The Sard Intaglio. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 5 August 1914

CHAPTER III. The Sard Intaglio. Gilray moved back as If that long, slim hand was some fearful thing : fraught with peril. Yet he was strange- ' ly fascinated by it, it aroused all his artistic sense arid love of the beauti ful. Nor was he blind to the value of those beautiful old rings that decked it with their glittering brilliants. It seemed to him that he had seen one of them before in a famous collection of jewels. Surely the one with the panel of stones had been part of the D'Alen cus treasures. Gilray could have swern that he had once had it in his hand for in spection; that it was something he at one time had been half disposed to buy. Sweating and trembling as ho was from head to foot, he could not keep these thoughts out of his mind. The slim, white arm advanced, the slender fingers with the nails of pearl were almost on his foot, the waving light, made circles of flame in the sha dows, he could see the gleaming eyes of the terrified rats. He could see, too, j the dark slim...

LINCOLN'S BREVITY. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 5 August 1914

LINCOLN'S BREVITY. President Lincoln's first political speech was made in 1832, at the age of 23, when he was a candidate for the Illinois legislature. His opponent had wearied the audience by a long speech, leaving him but a short time in which to present hie views. He condensed them all into a few words, as follows: "Gentlemen, fellow citizens, I pre sume you know who I am. I am humble Abraham Lincoln. I have .been solicited by my friends to be come a candidate for the legislature. My politics can be briefly stated. I am in favor of the International Im provement System and a High Pro tective Tariff. These are my senti ments and political principles. If I am elected I shall be thankful; if not, it will be all the same." In 1858, when the compiler of the "Dictionary of Congress" sent to Mr. Iincoln the usual request for a sketch of his life, he received the following reply: - "Born Feb. 12, 1809, in Hardin Coun ty. Education defective. Profession a lawyer. Have captained volunteers...

Married in a Hencoop. VENTURE PROVES A FAILURE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 5 August 1914

Married in a Hencoop. VENTURE PROVES A FAILURE. Charles Summer, a clerk, married a year ago in a chicken coop before 10,000 persona at a chicken show in Convention Hall, Kansas City, has been remanded to the county goal on a charge of wife abandonment. At a hearing in a justice court Mrs. Sum mer said she believed only the novelty of the marriage led Summer into mat rimony. The poultry show committee gave Mr. and Mrs. Summer 10 dol., a dozen chickens, and the coop, for con senting to the novel marriage. Jus tice Welch, in remanding Summer to gaol, said:-"Any man who has the nerve to be married in a chicken coop before 10,000 persons belongs to a coop."

GEORGE, IS MY HAIR ALL RIGHT? How Fidget Lost a Bet? [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 5 August 1914

GEORGE, 13 MY HAIR ALL RIGHT? How Fidget Lost a Bet? Fidget had been dining with a friend from out of town, an old col lege mate. They, together with Mrs. Fidget, were to attend a thoatrical performance. The men were in the smoking room awaiting the reappearance of Mrs. Fidget, who waB upstairs. "It is a remarkable fact," observed Fidget to his old friend, "that while it requires something over an hour for my wife to arrange her hair in order to go to the theatre, yet the first question that she invaiably puts to ine once we get there and she is seated and has removed her hat is, 'George, is my hair ail right?' or 'Does it look a sight?' "Now, just you notice when we get to the theatre. I'll wager you any thing that she'll make use of one or the other of those expressions." The three arrived at the theatre a few minutes before the curtain was raised. Mrs. Fidget immediately re moved her hat, placed it on her lap, and when she started to fluff up her hair in front with her gloved han...

A CITY GOLD MINE. TRANSIT MONOPOLY. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 5 August 1914

CITY GOLD MINE. TRANSIT MONOPOLY. Melbourne Tramway Company, in the closing years of a prosperous and well-conducted life, is scattering gold on grateful shareholders. A week or so back the directors opened the valve of the reserve fund reservoir and poured out a cool £400,000 upon a financial circle already gorged with the proceeds of other lucrative stock investments. And now the Tramway Company is topping its annual divi dend of 4/- a year with an extra bonus of 2/-, making a total distribu tion of £288,000. More will probably be made available in the shape of distribution specialties next year, which is to be the last of the com pany's existence. It all illustrates what a magnificent thing is to be made of city transit monopoly-and here is the City Council handing over half this gold mine to the motor-'bus enterprises!

Holds Out Well. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 5 August 1914

Holds Out Well. At a club meeting held in a public house in a email village a discussion took place as to whether a hard or soft substance would last the longer. The debate continued for some time, until one man spoke up, and said: "Now, men, you are all mistaken, ai I can easily prove. When me and my wife married she had as good a set of teeth as any woman could have; now she hasn't got one, and her ton gue is as good as ever." "To ring the telephone bell at an other person's house, in order to put pressure on some person employed there, is not only a most offensive thing to do, but an insufferable tres pass for which, no doubt, substan tial damages could be recovered by the owner in a proper suit," says the Eng lish "Law Journal," referring to a money-lender's methods. During a violent storm a shower o. white butterflies fell in Bernay, Swit zerland, the atreetB being covered to a depth of two inches.

CHAPTER II. The White Hand. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 5 August 1914

CHAPTER II. The White Hand. Gilray stared wonderingly at the npeaker. 1-Ie could only wait for the other man to speak. Tt looked that night as if all the world had gone mad, .as if law and order, and the sacred rights of property were no more. For this man was not shirking or abashed; there was no suggestion of an apology about him. On the contrary, his manner was cooly con temptuous, ever superior; it was as if ft magistrate were addressing a first offender. He was a waster, of course, and a' failure-even his cool and easy au dacity could not conceal that. But he was undoubtedly a strong m;in, and Gilroy did not fail to recognise the fact. "How did you get here?" he stam mered. "Does it matter?" the other asked. "Let it suffice that I am here. Be fore long you will be glad I came. Permit me to introduce myself. Mr. Horace Yorley, whilom Doctor Vor ley, very much at your service." "You mean that you are not on the Medical Register now?" "Precisely. You catch my meaning exactly. The ...

Rebuking the Pastor. CHOIR GOES ON STRIKE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 5 August 1914

Rebuking the Pastor. CHOIR GOES ON STRIKE. Members of the choir of the Ryland Methodist Episcopal Church, Washing ton, as a rebuke to the pastor (Rev. Edward Gallagher), went on strike after the morning service in the church, because in his sermon the pastor reproved the singers for gos siping and whispering while service was in progress. They demanded that the pastor apologise, and when he de clined to do so, announced they would no longer attend. Miss Mary C. Brew er, organist, said there would be no more music in the church until a new pastor was appointed. She said the entire congregation was in sympathy with the choir, which had witheld a hostile demonstration on the promise that he would resign. Recently he announced that he would not do so.

MAIZE FOR COLOR. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 5 August 1914

MAIZE FOR COLOR. There are so-called egg foods ga lore, but he real thing is a proper pro portion of maize green food and lean meat. Too often the high-priced win ter egg proves but a pale, flabby af fair with colorless yolk and watery white. This results from feeding without a sufficiency ®f green food and hard grain, especially maize< Fresh green feed and maize will pro duce the egg with rich, golden yolk and firm white standing up around it --a thing of beauty on the breakfast table and a joy to the breakfaster. An abundance of egg-making food fed to the pullets in an appetising and di gestible form so that large quantities may be eaten and assimilated is ne cessary to prolific egg production at any season, but particularly in win ter. Succulent green food is especi ally essential for this purpose, being in fact one of the things that belong to the springtime with its flush of egg production.

FOR THE FARMER. BRANDING CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 5 August 1914

FOR THE FARMER. BRANDING CATTLE. The great waste of money entailed by our present methods of branding «attle is a subject which periodically <3rops up in the newspapers and lea ther trade journalB. It never appears, .however, to get past this stage, for the same injurious method of apply ing hot irons to the best part of an animal's hide still continues. In this .connection it is pointed out by the English Farmers' Federation that the difference in price of leather, were it not branded, is probably 3d. to 4d. jper pound. Then, again, raw hides, il not branded, would fetch Id. per pound more, and, as these hides weigh from 60 lb. to 80 lb. the difference in Talue is very appreciable. The Federa tion advocates either an alteration of the method of branding, or that the animals be branded with smaller "brands, on the cheeks, ears, or flanks -not on the rump or the back, as is at present nearly always done. They consider that this would be equally distinguishable, and would d...
