CHAPTER XVII. AN UNWELCOME VISITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 24 September 1915
CHAPTER XVII. UNWELCOME VISITOR. Rufus Grouch, clad in a coarse white slop suit, liko a dock laborer or navvy,'" and puffing forth smoke from tho short and blackened pipe, that was his al most inseparable companion, c-anie strid ing up the long and narrow valley that led from tho sea coast, to that hollow in which his unenviable dwelling stood, He walked more swiftly, and more strongly too, than could have been con jee lu rod of a man of his build. And, indeed, it is a mistake to supposo that a cross-built, ungainly figure, like that of Rufus, is necessarily unfit for speed, whether at a walk or run. Your flash ing Mercury, your clean-limbed, per fectly-proportioned athlete, of course, leads the van, but there is many a shambling fellow, such as the old gold digger was, who could press hard on his heels in a,'long race. Rufus Crouch was very strong; you could tell that in spito his tcraMike gait, by the I rapidity with which ho mounted every steep little bit of the hilly road, and b...

THE JET-HUNTER'S FOSTER SON CHAPTER XVI. (Continued). "Yes, Miss Mowbray, you are quito right, and 1 was quite wrong, I should make a sorry figure as a curato and deserve your ridicule, We never know ourselves. I may feel a desire for a quiet life of peaceful usefulness, and bo absurd, quite unintentionally, for wishing to bccomo a humble worker in the world's vineyard." There was somewhat of sadness in the speaker's tone, and Violet, whose sym pathies were quick and tender, was about to say a gentle word or two, when Midden help arrived. It arrived in the person of Lord David Tod Hunter, tall, port]}-, jovial, his amber tinted whisk ers tinged with grey, and his white waistcoat glistening in the sun. Flo was not alone. He came at the head of « party oL.ihe younger visitors, whom Charlie Fitzgerald nad the Piminy girk were conspicuous. "I say, -Mortmain," began the blithe, but impecunious, brother of his solemn Grace of Pentland, ''since you »ro grant! vizier here, and Lady Thorsdal...

DERBYSHIRE NECK. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 24 September 1915
DERBYSHIRE NECK. By the term goitre is meant a chronic enlargement of tho thyroid gland, which is placed immediately over the neck. One of the chief duties of this gland is to store and distribute the lime salts needed by tho body. Hence, when peo ple' live in districts whoro there ia an excess of inorganic lime in the -water, enlargement of this organ is apt to occur. The' limestone of Derbyshire district becomes dissolved in the water supply, and so goitre is very prevalent there, and the njirne "Derbyshire neclc" has often been applied to it. It will be obvious to most'people that if drink ing water saturated with unusable inor ganic lime, salts is the cause of goitre, tlio remedy is to remove the cause. This can be done by using distilled water ex clusively, both for cooking and drinking purposes. A good still may be pur chased ,and a daily supply of distilled water in this way is obtained.
THE ROMANCE OF A BLIND MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 24 September 1915
THE ROMANCE OF A BLIND MAN. (By Holbrook Jackson.) If you wero to ask any hundre-d poo plo what physical calamity they would dread most of all, the reply in practic ally every case would be-blindness. It is not oatiy for ono possessing the trans cendent boon ol' sight to look upon tho Joss ot' that facility "with anything but despair; but, strangely enough, a moro cheerful attitude comes from the blind themselves. Ko oho -would suggest that those who aro blind woulu not prefer to havo thoir sight, yet there is perhaps no misfortune which has produced such courageous optimism as blindness. We havo all heard of that great American, Ilelen Keller, who, blind almost from birth, has not only carved out for her self an endur.vng placo in tho records of her nation, but has created somothiug like a now world for tho blind. And in our own country wo havo the uoblo examplo of Mr. C. Arthur Pearson, af flicted with blindness in tho very prime of life and at the height of a distin guished caree...

It Trill be ob served that the most sanguinary and strenuous engagements are taking place iri the most thickly-timbered strotches of country, particularly on the western battle front, such as the Yosges and the ! Ardennes, in modern military strategy the occupation of thickly timbered ter ritory is a frequent occurrence. The reason is obvious. Densely-woodod country ocers tho greatest obstruction to an enemy.
