He would not sleep in a room numbered to, and on one occasion, when he had been by mischance put in a. room hearing that number, he created a terrible disturbance when he dis covered what had happened, and ac cused the landlord of the inn of a desire to bring misfortune on him. On another occasion he was at a dinner party, and one of the guests, Mr, O'Brien states, had to be sent away from the table because there : were thirteen persons present.

Miracles of Faith-healing. CURING BY SUGGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 16 October 1914

Miracles of Faith-healing. 1 CURING BY SUGGESTION. However scoptical one may be re garding the powers of faith-healers, who have, particularly of late years, been subjected to a 'great deal of ad verse criticism, and in some cases ridicule, by people who refuse to recognise the sincerity of their be liefs, there can be no doubt, in view , of the recent report of the Clerical j and Medical Committee, that faith healers have brought about some j wonderful cures. I It is impossible, for instance, to doubt the word of Lord Sandwich, j who was a playmate of King Ed ward at Windsor Castle in his Eton days, and who has done such mag-! nificent work in relieving distress among children in the slums. Lord Sandwich is a great believer in i faith-healing, and says that he has ' cured a great many people of af fections such as cancer and blind ness by the "laying on of hands and prayer." His lordship confessed a short time ago, during a remarkable speech he delivered at the Univer sity College,...

EVERSLEY WATER SCHEME. WHAT IS IT? [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 16 October 1914

EVERSLEY WATER SCHEME. WHAT IS IT? Mr. Hutchinson, Minister for Water Supply, has arranged to receive a depu tation from Wimmera municipalities at Melbourne next Wednesday, 23rd inst., to hear arguments in favor of the Eversley water-scheme storage. A determined effort will be made to urge the Government to construct a weir on the Wimmera at Eversley, and provide an abundant supply tor the future. It is now fully realised that a store of water adequate to the wants of the districts cannot be obtained from the Lake Lonsdale and Black Swamp schemes, useful though these have un doubtly been. Nearly a quarter of a century has elapsed since it was first proposed to take advantage of the natural facilities afforded for water conservation at Eversley. Eversley is situated 17 miles north of Ararat, on the railway line to Avoca, and four miles north of the junction of the new line from Crowlands to Navarre. Here the river sweeps through an expansive valley, flanked on one side by the Pyrenee...

Simplon Tunnel Flood. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 16 October 1914

Simplon Tunnel Flood. Deep down in the heart of the! Simplon Alps lies a big unseen lake, upon which rests a super-1 pressure of 13,000ft. of towering rocks. The greatest engineering feat achieved during the boring of thfe Simplon tunnel was that of getting under control the mighty springs of hot water that burst up from the lake, and directing the gush-) ing stream to the outer part of the gallery by means of a huge steel aqueduct. This conduit suddenly burst one afternoon recently at a spot ten miles inside, and a train which was actually traversing the tunnjl in the direction of Como was well nigh swept o'ft the rails by the force of the torrential outburst. Three Milan .expresses bound for !'a,-is were consequently held up at Domodossola fccr eight hours. ! At the imminent risk of their I lives, a gang of Italian workmen had. to toil in the darkness until nearly .midnight, with the flood up to their armpits, before they suc ceeded in damning the great water spout. ^ •

TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—I hear that at the annual meet ing ot the Athletic Club last Saturday evening it was decided to considerably reduce the prize-list for the New Year's Day Sports, in spite of the fact that the club has a credit of balance of over £70. This, in my humble opinion, is a serious mistake. Just when the club (every credit to its capable manage ment) has worked this New Year fixture up to a standard that is worthy of the generous support of our business people, it is proposed 10 seriously curtail the prizes and reduce the importance of what is now recognised as a successful Wimmera institution. Why ? Surely it cannot be on account of the drought or the war, unless the intention be to avoid the necessity for collecting annual subscrip ions. But I am told a can vassing comm...

Beyond All Succour. « A TALE OF TRAGIC WILD LIFE AND OF A WOUNDED LION. There was a vicious, report as he i fired, but too late—a shout, a'cough I ing grunt; the man was down. No ; he was up somehow. There was another report close beside ; a crash of splintered, parted reeds ; a whirling, yellow, black-tuft-tipped tail, and—silence. The lion went on through the reeds, smashing his way without seeking a path, galloping a wonder ful, long, leaping gallop, in which all four feet nearly touched when in the middle of each hound. THAT HOVERING VULTURE. He had certainly intended to kill the man who fired at him—had, in fact, got him over, knocked him down like a ninepin ; but the other man had fired in his face, and— missed. And the beast would re vile him for—missing. i Far, far better had ho not bun dled the job, and let the heavy-17(3 Express bullet finish the work the, first man's 275 bullet bad begun. | As it was, he hung 011 his stride?., and dropped to a trot—a heavy, loose, dog-lik...

AUSTRALIA'S NEED. INDUSTRIAL IDEALS. The opening of ihe Federal Session and the approaching elections for th<?

So far as war is concerned the younger men have risen to the occasion ; men ready to fiuht for Australia and the Empire are mmy, th.-ir enthusiasm is undoubted. But battles not less im portant have to be fought in the indus trial arena, and the ques ion of the hour is, "Will the elder men respond to the unique demand nude on their heads and their hearts ? " European papers, which have come to hand since war was declared, assert that a new sptri' is manifesting itsdf ira the conduct of industrial affairs. The patriotism which has always inspired1 the true soldier is now taking posses sion of the business man whose aims in the past have been so miserably narrow,.

Kipling and the Nightingale. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 16 October 1914

Kipling and the Night ingale. Mr. Irvin Cobb, an American, has had a long chat with Mr. Kipling, a summary of which ap pears in the New Yorki ' Evening Post.' This is how Mr. Cobb de scribes Mr. Kipling : "He has a hip jaw, and he wears shiny glasses and shows his teeth like Theodore Roosevelt, and he's a short man and blocky, with a biff, strong hand." Mr. Kipling, in a walk after lunch, said he didn't know birds well, though he was fond of them, but he knew trees. "I wish you would stay until after dinner," said the poot to his guest. "I'd like you to bear a nightingale that, conies every evening to our garden. I'd like, you to coniparo him with your mocking-bird. Tell nie about the mocking-bird—what's he like ?"
