A Bad Breaking Out. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 5 August 1914

A Bad Breaking Out. "Do you believe that love iB a sort of sickness, as some doctors Bay?" "Well, yes-something of a rash i a ture." Only about fifty novels are at pre sent printed in the Braille type, which alone can be read by the blind. Even these are very expensive, and lack of reading matter is one of the chief hardships of those deprived of sight.

Geese with Shoes On. ROUGH ROADS MAKE THEM FOOTSORE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 5 August 1914

Geese with Shoes On. ROUGH ROADS MAKE THEM FOOTSORE. The. largest goose dealer in the world is William H. Firke, of Mane field, Illinois. Late in the summer of each year Mr. Firke's buyer spends several months in the hills of Ken tucky and Tennessee, where goose ,raising is an important industry. There the geese are purchased, some here, some there, but scarcely ever in lots of more than a hundred. Some times the geeae are assembled in places remote from a railroad, and must be driven miles before they can be loaded.' The driving is compara tively easy, but before the long march over the rough and rugged road is started, the geese must be shod. Rough roads will make even a goose foot sore. Shoeing geese is a simple mat ter to the goose-raiser. The birds are driven over soft tar or pitch, and then on to beds of fine sand. The sand and tar form a soothing mixture, which affords great protection to the feet on the long marches.

A Rockefeller Clock. Mr. John D. Rockefeller, the richest man alive, Insists upon the laborers on his estate on tho Pocantico Hills working every minute of the time for which he pay-J them, and has institut ed a new plan to guarantee that this shall be carricd out. As he had been troubled greanly because the fore men's watches did not agree, he in stalled a large town clock in the tower of his new stable. This clock strikes hours so that they are heard all over the estate, and the men are thus en abled to start on the minute. Lest, however, the clock should disturb the "Oil King's" sleep at night, the strik ing arrangement is regulated so as to stop between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.

But when he paid his court to her She lisped, but firmly said, "No, Thur." "Alas," said he, "then I must die! I'm done! I'll drown, I'll burn, I'llFri."

OUT OF IT. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 12 August 1914

OUT OF O, see the man! In utter gloom He leaves the gaily lighted room, He hears the sound o£ laughter gay, He has a look of dull dismay. While others wear a joyous grin As kindly sounds the ragtime din, He turns away and lets them pranco, The man who never learned to dance. A man may study all the arts, May read the sea and sky by charts, May know the history of the law From Moses down to Hurry Thaw. He may have treasure locked away And power other men to sway, But whore's the use. He stands no chance, The man who never learned to dance. If recent group-photographs of debu tantes prove anything, the coming generation in Melbourne, an exchange says, is to be a generation of plain women. An old derelict, older in idleness and incapacity than In years, came be fore a police court the other day on a cliarge of vagrancy. Though he was only 53 years of age, he pleaded that he was too old to work; it was impossible for him to do it. An un feeling magistrate, undisturbed by the thought tha...

WIT OF THE ANCIENT GREEKS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 12 August 1914

WIT OF THE ANCIENT GREEKS. Cleomenes, when asked what waa the duty of a king, replied, "To do good to your friendB, but harm to your enemies." Hearing this, the philoso pher Aristo asked "Would it not be still better to make your enemies friends, and so to do good to them also?" Philip of Macedon, being advised by his friends to banish one of his slan derers, replied, "If I do he will go about and abuse me where there are more to listen to him." Dionysus the Tyrant, to put a slight upon Plato, gave him the lowest seat at his table. "I daresay," he said, "when Plato goes back to Athens he will have plen ty to say against us." "Sir," said Plato, "I hope I may never be so at a loss for subjects of conversation as to have to talk about you!" Aristippus was once asked why he borrowed money of his friendB. "No for my own benefit," he replied, "but to teach them the proper use of wealth." Anaximander was once laughed at by some little boys for his singing. When told of it he said, "We must...

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 12 August 1914

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. A Melbourne coroner once made the sage remark that on occasions people commit suicide by inadvertence, so to speak. He was referring to the fool who looks down the muzzle of a gun and pulls the trigger to see if it works right, or the man who goes to see where a gaB tank leaks with a lighted candle in his hand. The limit ought to have been reached long since, but a London man takes the cake. He wanted to drown a dog, so he took the hapless animal and proceeded to a swiftly-running stream. On the way he filled his pockets with stones. When he came to the point of sacri fice he had to descend some slippery steps to the turbid waters, and, his feet failing him, he slid into the water, whilst the dog smiled on the Bteps. He might have struggled out but for the stones in his pocket. The dog went home and reflected on the matter of narrow escapes. Ten thousand Anglican Churchmen will hold a conference in London in . September to discuss the probability of women enter...

WHEN WALKING IS HARD WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 12 August 1914

WHEN WALKING IS HARD WORK. People often express surprise that soldiers on the march cover only ten or twelve miles of ground per day. Even then a good many men fall out through fatigue, some faint, and the whole are completely done up at the end. of the day. But the soldier is, nevertheless, a first-rate walker. It is all a matter of foot-tons of energy expended. Take an ordinary laborer, and his day's work will be equal to 300 tons lifted one foot high. An eleven-stone man, walking seventeen miles on the level, does the same amount of muscle work. But mark, if he carries aa overcoat weighing 61b., he does 311 foot-tons. Now, the soldier is a regular pack horse, and the kit that he carries av erages about 601b. in weight. So that he does exactly as much work in a twelve-mile march as an ordinary man in his seventeen-mile walk. Besides, the soldier has to "break camp" "before starting, and at the finish of the march he has to pitch camp, draw water, collect fuel, clean rifles, etc., ...

Turning the Page. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 12 August 1914

Turning tht Pag6'. A testator, after citing the obliga tions he w$s under to a particular friend, bequeathed to him at the bot tom of the first page of his will ten thousand-pounds, of course, thought the delighted legatee, but, on turning the page, he found the missing word to be "thanks." A similar story Is told of an old lady who, in her last illness, promised the priest to leave him a sum of mon ey for parish purposes. When Bhe was dying, she asked the priest to come nearer the bedside, and gasped out: "Father-I've given-you " "Stop," said the priest, anxious to have as many witnesses as possible; "I will call in the family," and, open ing the door, he beckoned them all in." "I've given you," panted out the dying woman, "a great deal of trou ble."

An Unexpected Order. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 12 August 1914

An Unexpected Order. The most interesting experience I ever had during a long time on the road occurred some years ago in Scot land, says a traveller. One day during the Highland Show, where we were exhibiting engines, a very unkempt-looking individual hung around the stand for some time, and thinking he appeared very interested in a large traction engine, and might possibly be p. driver, I approached him for a chat. After a time, however, I found 'he was. a, man who had, an idea he would like to. have it for hiB own, but before deciding he said he would first have to ask his mother.

Caught. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 12 August 1914

Caught, A workman claimed compensation' for the loss -of his left eye, as the re Bult of an explosion in the factory where he worked. There was no doubt about the ex plosion, and there was no doubt that the workman's eye had been injured; but the doctors claimed he could see out of it, while he stoutly declared' that the sight was utterly destroyed. The judge heard the evidence on both sides. Then, sending the work man from the court, he said: "Get a blackboard, and write a sen tence on it with green chalk. Also get a pair of spectacles, with ordinary clear glass for the left eye, and with' red glass for the right." When all was ready, the workman was brought back, and instructed how to put the queer glasses on. Then the judge said to him. "Look at that blackboard, and eee if you can read what is written on it."' The man read the sentence without hesitation, whereupon the judge saicT to him sternly: "Your case is dismissed. You must have read that sentence with your' left eye, for t...

THE PRICE OF A GOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 12 August 1914

THE PRICE OF A GOWN. The doctor was discouraged, for the neighborhood was well, The colic spared the little ones, and also It befel The. elders had no troubles that de manded medic's skill; No one in that vicinity was even slightly 111. The doctor's wife was worried, for she longed to have a gown. The doctor, when she mentioned It, could only darkly frown. "There is," he 6ald, "no chance at all of getting what you need, While every person, hereabout is from all illness freed." "Oh, woe is me, alas, alack," then cried the doctor's wife, It's torrible indeed that I should have so hard a life. I must, it seems, have patience just because your patients lack; I must, to go abroad in style, put some one on his back.' This woo she pondered deeply, but ere long was seeu to smile, "I have a plan," she said at last, "that really seems worth while. "I'll start at once a cooking school." He straightway ceased to frown. "My dear," he cried most Joyfully. "you'll surely got that gown." And BO the...

FOR THE FARMER. STOCK-BREEDING IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 12 August 1914

FOR THE FARMER. 8T0CK-BREEDING IN VICTORIA. Dr. S. S. Cameron, Director of Agri-1 -culture in Victoria, in an interesting j ?Chat tlie other day with our represen tative, made some remarks on Btock-! breeding, especially on small farms, that may be read with both pleasure i arid profit. Dr. Cameron said:-"I was recently struck by the high jump in values realised for beef breeds of cattle at the Sydney Royal Agricul tural Show sales. For a year or two hack the prices obtained at these sales for Hereford, shorthorn, and other heef-breed cattle have been compara tively low, thus indicating that the 'Queensland and other' back - country "buyers have not, been operating aB they used to do. It has always seemed Strange to me that as Queensland is engaged in the business of beef export it does not emulate its great rival, the Argentine, whose stock-breeders an nually Import, at very high cost, some of the best pedigree stock that can be produced in Great Britain. For years past the Ar gent...
