ALADDIN AND THE GENIE. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 6 July 1917
ALADDIN AND THE GENIE. There are few children, aud perhaps fewer adults, who have not been deeply interested in the enchanting story of Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp. If they have not actually read the story in the Arabian Nights, they have seen the plot enacted at the Christinas Pan tomime. Many a time wo have wished that we had this Lamp, if only for a few moments, so that wo might com mand its Genie to bring us just what Tro wished for. Something, in short, that would brighten up our homes, our per sonal appearance, and our lives. How few, on the other hand, realise that the Genie spirit is really a living spirit within ourselves called by the world; Genius. How few understand that thera is the evil as well as the good Genio. Sorno day the world will realiae that Genius commands all human skill, whether it bo in Music or Noise, light ing or Cowardice, Truth or Fiction, Honesty or Cheating. When this is un derstood, it will bo seen that Genius is not so uncommon as wo are led to ...
Business Before Bravery. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 6 July 1917
Business Before Bravery. Benjamin Bosseni, the foreman, was superintending the unloading of a vessel at the quayside, and was urging on his willing workers with every kind of invective to which he could turn his bitter tongue. But he overdid it, .for in his eagerness to render one of the men a little vigor ous assistance he slipped and-splash lie went intc\ the dark waters of the dock. Down he went, and it seemed that the riverside might never be en livened by the music of his voice again, when Hefty Herbert, one of the lightermen, gallantly dived in and brought Benjamin safe to land. The long day passed, and nothing was said regarding the accident, till Hefty felt that something at least was.due to him for what he had done, and lie approached the ungrateful one. "I see yer fall in, guv'nor," he said, insinuatingly, "and I saved yer from drownin'. Ain't it worth nothing?" "No, you expressive example of any thing but a gentleman,," rasped Ben; "it ain't! If you'd been attending to bu...

I Heeding Good Adive. He was a junior, but keen to get ?on. His only companion in the first "smoker" was a well-known barris ter, wlio had made a large fortune in his profession. - "I wish you would tell me your se cret of success," the young man said. "I will, if you pay my expenses during the few days that I am going to be in York." "I will," replied the young man. "It is in this advice: Deny every thing, and insist upon proof." At York the barrister enjoyed all the luxuries that a good hotel could furnish, regardless of expense, and when the time for his departure ar rived, he passed the bill, of enormous proportions, to the young man, who was standing near. The latter mere ly glanced at it and returned it. "Aren't you going to pay?" said the other. "Pay what?" "The bill. Didn't you promise to pay my expenses whilst I was in York?" "My dedr sir," was the retort, "I de ny everything, and insist upon proof." The lawyer paid the bill and laugh ingly said: "You. need no further ad vi...

Long Naps. Woman Sleeps for Thirty Years. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 6 July 1917
> Long Naps. Woman Sleeps for Thirty Years. Recently a young French soldier .who was wounded at the beginning of '.he war. woke up after a nap of over two years. During the whole of that period food was artificially adminis tered, and to-day he Is just as strong in body and mind as he was before his unique experience. This calls to mind a number of similar instances. Some time ago a woman in Brussels was aroused by church bells ringing in consequence of a fire. She had been asleep for nearly seventeen years. When she awoke she was in perfect health, and re membered in detail events tnat had taken place seventeen years ago, be fore she fell off into her long nap. There have been several instances of sleeps lasting twenty years. Here is the remarkable case of the "Dor; mouse of Menelies." In 1883 Margaret Bangerel, a pretty girl of twenty-one years of age, be came unconscious as the result of a practical joke played upon her. The | trance lasted for twenty years, and she became the...
VIOLINS WITH SOULS. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 6 July 1917
VIOLINS WITH SOULS. Enormous pains and care go to the making of a good violin, says an authority. Indeed, it has been raid that the great violin makers all lii-ed within the compass of a hundred and fifty years. They expended extra ordinary care in finding just the right beam. They learned to tell the density of the jvood by touching, it. The house'of Stradivarius was as an oven." In this great heat the o'ls thinned and simmered slowly, ana penetrated far into the wood, until the varnishes became a part of the wood itself. So vibrant and resonant is the wood of good old violins that they murmur and sing in answer to any sound, where a number of tht m hang together on a wall. It was doubtless owing to this fact that superstitious individuals, carried away by Paganini's wonderful play ing, declared that he had a human soul imprisoned in his"violin; for the instrument sang and whispered even when all the strings were oil.
Legal Pleasantries. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 6 July 1917
Legal Pleasantries. The great law case was nearing its termination, anil the prosecuting counsel felt the necessity for having a dig at the opposing counsel. "The arguments put forward by my friend," he remarked, "in stating his case are, to say the least of it, remarkable. I cannot help thinking that on entering the court this morn ing ho must have dropped all his commonsenso on the threshold." Opposing counsel Jumped up to re ply: 'lI must compliment my learned friend on his speech, the exceptional brilliancy of which, coupled with the fact that he followed me into court this morning, lead me to think that he must have picked up a portion of that commonsense he accuses me of dropping on the threshold!"

Appropriate Hymns. Mr. A. G. Bradley, sthe well-known writer, tells a couple of good stories) concerning his schoolboy days at Marlborough College.

Sanitary Service at Wandiligong. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 6 July 1917
Sanitary Service at Wan diligong. AT the last council meeting on Tue9 day, 12th ult., Cr Gribble said he was surprised to hear that the residents of Wandiligong were so lax in their sani tary methods that the medical board found it necessary to insist on the muni cipal pan system. He had always thought their town perfectly clean and healthy, and if there was careless ness in one or two cases in that res pect, it was a pity that all the residents should suffer a costly pan service in consequence. The matter was an old cry, which had ouly been shelved, evi dently, but the board whs now seeking finality, and as Cr Ooldswortliy says, we may have to submit to it. We can not place a depot above the town, and if we place one below, it would be above Bright. He considered that ratepayers do not require the system, and at present have plenty to worry over in the terrible devastation caused by the floods. The worst problem is the lack of work to keep our people together ; and, in fact, in was...
