CHAPTER XV. The Lights of Lisbon. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 7 May 1914

CHAPTER XV. The Lights of Lisbon. Hugh... left .-Dover on his yacht, the Chrlstabel, upon the evening of a glorious day of June; he was off Lis bon three days afterwards, and Mat Michel waa trying to tell him that this was the finest harbor in the world with the exception of a dozen or mov>j upon the coast of Ireland. Mat, to be sure, had been the very life and soul of these anxious days. Though he knew as well as any man what failure would mean to Hugh Don ald, he-would never let the-word pass his lips. Always cheerful, with a jest at every turn, he became a veritable terror to the Archdeacon, who, de spite the call of Devonshire and arch diaconal "functions, insisted upon ac companying his "poor young friend," and of doing ample justice, to the ef forts of the Christabel's masterly cook. George Hedges was not a pessi mist- 'in practice, though in precept he frequently touched lightly upon the nether regions. "A man who flung roses into hell," as Mat said with thu breezy candor ...

! IN LOVE WITH A PICTURE. Jhe Italian Who Stole "Monna Lisa" from the Louvre Is not the First. Man to Fall a Victim1 to the Charm of a ' Picture. "I fell In love with 'Monna'Lisa.'" That was the declaration of Vincen zo Perugia, the man who stole the famous picture, made to the - police. After he had taken it from the Louvre he said that he went home, locked himself in his room, and stood en tranced before it, bewitched by the smile of La Gloconda. There were times, he said, when he felt that he must destroy the picturc or -he would SO mail, so haunting was .the smile. "Monna Lisa" has always had ad mirers. One of the Louvre guides at the time the picture was stolen, stated that he had seen visitors sit in front of it for hours, captivated by the se-. ductive smile; and the museum au thorities often used to have . letters addressed to "The original of 'Monna Lisa'!" . ^ Far more people than Vincenzo Per ugia have fallen "madly in love with • well-known pictures.

THE MALIGNED COMET. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 7 May 1914

THE MALIGNED COMET. On January 14, 1742, there passed away one of the greatest of our astron omers, in the person of Edmund Hal ley, who worked up to, the end of his long life. jJs works were many, but the most notable was his great dis covery about the comet that bears his name. Until his time comets were supposed to be auguries of great good or evil, but chiefly the latter, and many persons lived in the greatest terror of them. Milton, for instance, speaks of the "comet pouring from his horrid head pestilence and war," and, in-leed, they were commonly supposed to presage a terrible war, at least. One of them appeared in the. fif teenth century, and was 'solemn ly cursed in a Papal Bull; but this did not afreet the comet, which re appearerd seventy-fiv; years later, and it was this appearance which in duced Charles V., Emperor of Ger many and King of -Spain, to resign both crowns. But it came once more at the beginning of the' Thirty Years' V'ar, and Evelyn accused it of "work ing ...

WEALTH FROM SAWDUST. Gas and Bread Made From It. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 7 May 1914

I WEALTH FROM 8AWDUST. Gas-and Bread Made From It. American and Canadian .sawmills have discovered that the sawdust which they have been perplexed how to rid themselves of as a worthless encumbrance is worth at least £8 per ton. In Baltimore a chemist has perfected a process of extracting gas from sawdust, adequate enough to supply a city like Ottawa with light and heat at 5d. per 1000ft. This • is thought to portend that around the great sawmills, which have been emp tying their dust into the Ottawa River, a variety of new industries subsisting on it are likely to grow up. In Austria, where everything in the shape of fuel is being carefully search ed for, sawdust is impregnated with a mixture of tarry substances and heated to the proper temperature; it is then passed over a plate of iron heated by steam, from which a screw conveyor takes it to a press, where it is compressed into the required size.

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 7 May 1914

KITCHEN WRINKLES. To prevent window-blind cords breaking, dust the cords, and then rub them over with a well-greased rag. The snapping is caused by friction, which impoverishes the cords, and ' I ey are further weakened bjr the suo. and weather. ~ It is an excellent plan to keep in the kitchen a bottle filled with equal parts of linseed oil and lime-water, to alleviate the pain of burns. Shake the. bottle well before using the io tian, and keep the burned parts from the air by covering with lint. The best way to test silit is to cut off a small piece and burn.it. If it burns* out quickly, leaving a clear, crisp, grey ash, the silk is pure; but if it smoulders and leaves a heavv reddish-brown ash it has 'been treated with chemicals,' and will not wear well. A very good way to prevent a crack ed wash-hand basin from breaking is to paint along the crack with white paint; then place along it a piece of wide tape, the length of the crack. Paint well over this, and when dry it will be as ...

FARMERS AND UNIONISM. LABOR'S STATEMENT OF THE CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 7 May 1914

FARMER8 AND UNIONISM. LABOR'S STATEMENT OF THE CASE. Though the minds of Labor supporters may be perturbed by the political gymnastics of our politicians, it is gratifying to ,iearn that, in the individual field, solidarity grows apace, and that in a branch hitherto practically untouched in Austra lia, tiiat of farm laborers, the organising ability of the A.W.U. is meeting with ,tho success that so worthy a cause deserves. The most commendable feature of recent years is the forward moveinen(< among the worst paid classes of workers, and it is pleasing to note that the better j organised trades are now recog nising the necessity for closer association among all classes of workers. The spirit, is exemplified by the attitude of the A.W.U. in embracing the Rural Workers' Union and at once opening a vig-. orous campaign on Uieir behalf, and the subsequent behavior of • City and Railway Workers' Un : ions in refusing to handle or I facilitate the removal of scab goods.
