THE TERROR OF THE UNKNOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 17 July 1914

THE TERROR OF THE UNKNOWN. "Utter bewilderment and astonish ment were my first feelings when sight was given to me," said a man who had never seen until he was 30 years old. "The bandage was drawn away from my eyes in the hospital. What I saw frightened me; It was so big, and caused such strange emotions. I called out in terror and put out my hand. My fingers touched my nurse's face. X knew she was there, for she had just taken the bandage from my eyes, and I knew what I was touching, but I did not know what it "was X saw. " 'For mercy's sake, what is it?' I asked in agonising tones. "The nurse answered me soothing ly, taking my fingers in ber hand and moving them from her mouth to her eyes, to her nose, chin, and forehead. 'It is my face that you see. Look! You know this is my mouth-my chin, and these are my eyes.' "Soon I knew that I was seeing what was familiar to the touch of my fingers -a human face. But the sensation for long was one of terror. The first meal I ate was an odd ...

DOING THE DANDY. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 17 July 1914

DOING THE DANDY. A young dandy walked into the bar o£ a country "public" one day, and, re ceiving a respectful salutation from a "joskin" who stood near, ordered drinks for two, handing a sovereign in payment, saying he had nothing less. ? The barmaid was obliged to take the coin to her mistress for change, but soon returned, and asked if he would pay the next time he was passing, as they were unable-;to give change. . A minute later, taking advantage of the girl's absence, the dandy nudged the laborer's arm, and said: "Look here, friend, what do you say to getting drinks for nothing?" "Why, I'm-game, of course!" "Well, then, I'll-lend you the sover eign, and you order the drinks." The exchange was soou effected, and Hodge knocked loudly on the counter. "Same dose again," he said, when the maiden appeared, and, diving deep down into his trousers pocket, fished up the sovereign. "Take th' change out o' that," he said coolly. After another brief disappearance, the young woman returned...

SENTIMENT. The sentiment of to-day ia sooial and philanthropic.. It has no affiliations jvith art, which stands apart from it, -a new experience for the world. It dominates (periodical literature, minor ?erse and serious fiotion; but it has so far given nothing of permanent value to letters. It is strong politically, and is echoed from many party platforms. It is sure of a hearing, and it is hold .too sacred for assault. It is a force to be reckoned with, and to be control led. It is capablc of raising us to a better and dearer vision, or rf weaken ing our judgement and shattering our pommon sense. If we value our safety, pe must forevar bear in mind that sentiment is a subjective and a pergonal thing.

WIVES WON BY CHANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 17 July 1914

WIVES WON BY CHANCE. Some of the strangest roads leading ' to the altar are the "wife contests," In which the wife is won entirely by chance, and where Cupid has little to do with the subsequent marriage cere- j mony. - I One of the oddest of these contests took place recently in Italy. A weal thy Neapolitan, named Tesino, offered his name and fortune to the young wo man who could best please his palate by her cooking of macaroni. As Te slno was good-looking and rich, and as there were many unmarried: girls in Italy, there were over 150 entrants. Teslno tasted the dishes of macaroni that were presented to him, and-then carefully looked over, the contestants. Ho subsequently led one to the altar, and gave her a wedding present of £800. Miss Elizabeth Magie, a young Ame rican girl, started to raffle herself as a "slave for life' 'at so much a chance, the highest-priced chances being £8, in order to get money for voice cul ture. But before the contest was com pleted a suitable suitor p...
