Giving Up the Spirit. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 11 December 1914

Giving Up the Spirit. Some convivial tradesmen In a small provincial town had.sat through a dry Board of Trade meeting which had extended far into the night, and remained to gossip over local affairs. Conversation often begets thirst, and finally Sands, the grocer, remarked: "Boys, I'm dying for a drink!" It was past closing-time' for the one and only local thirst emporium, but, armed with an idea, three of the tradesmen sallied forth to the saloon, whose proprietor lived in rooms up stairs. At the door they set. up a pro digious pouuding and shouting. A tousled head was thrust through a window, hastily' unilung. "Oh, Otto," the disturbers, shouted, "come down quick! Sands is; dy ing!" Downstairs came Otto. Once in side, the modest order for Sands' re lief was given; a quart of this, a pint of that, and a dozen bottles of the other thing, to say nothing of a demijohn of- further restoratives. "By gracious!" Otto remarked when he surveyed the final array. "I'm glad I woke up. Sands m...

COWARD OR HERO? I. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 11 December 1914

COWARD OR HERO? By H. G. MacLauriu. Philip Maxwell's ambition was to become uu artist; but Fate had ruled otherwise. The position in which he now found himself was unfortunate to the last degree, lie had wasted sever al of the best years of his life in painting pictures which nobody would buy, and doing magazine illustrations which no editor would accept. How he had lived in the interim was a problem. And now at twenty-four, when he should have been in a fair way of earning, if not fame and for tune, at least a competence, he was penniless, stranded, and had to be gin afresh in a new line. He had got a job at the gasworks, through the influence of a friend. The friend had explained that the outlook was not particularly rosy, especially to a man of Philip's ambitions; but it would do for a start, and if Philip proved patient and persevering, and was alive to any chance opening that might present itself, there was no tell ing what he would rise to in the end. Philip had applied for va...

The foreman came to Philip with a grin on his face, and said: "There's a chance for you to use your hartistic abilities, young feller. The big gasometer wants painting, and the painting foreman is short handed, so I've told liim he can have you. Get a move on; they're just ready for starting." The_gas company had its own staff of painters on the premises, who were available for all sorts of work. Need less to say, Philip shrank from doing such work; but he knew that if he put his objections into words, he would hive a very rough time of it at the hands of the foreman, so he accepted with the best grace he could. lie did the work assigned to him in an efiicient manner, and won the ap proval of the painting foreman: The tank would take some days to com plete. As the work proceeded, Philip was worried by the observations of a gang of hooligans who infested the neighborhood of the gasometer. They were known as the gas-tank gang, and were a terror to the people who lived in the vicinity....

Dovle rather neatly in Paris, where translations of his books are very widely read. lie arrived in Paris from the Ri viera, and having hailed a cab at the station drove to his hotel. When he paid the fare he was rather surprised when the cabby said: "Thank you, Monsieur Conan Doyle." "ITow did you know my name?" Sir Arthur aske'd. "Quite simpiy," the cabby replied. ".I read in the newspapers that you wore coming from Nice. At the sta tion I examined you and saw that you were English. Your hair seemed to me to have been cut by a Southern barber, and on the heel of your boot were traces of Marseilles mud."

III. The weeks; dragged 011. Chesney pressed liis advantage, and received open encouragement from Madge. It looked as if an engagement was im pending. Philip, wretched and hope less, expected to hear the news every day. Madge, when she came to the gasworks, either ignored him or be st wed on him the curtest of curt nods. Then, one day, one of those rare and desperate crises occurred at the gasworks which called for the exhi bition of the most supreme heroism, tv ho would" rise to the occasion? It happened in this way. Philip had been summoned to the basement washer-house, to assist in certain operations which were in progress. The chief engineer was there, and Chesney, with several mechanics. Philip came to where three men were cleaning accumulated tar out of the washer—a rectangular box used for washing tarry matter out of crude gas. The operation—an annual one —was almost completed. Two men had affixed the covers 011 the appara tus, and had screwed it up tight, leav ing only two s...

Patriotic Concert. A SPLENDID SUCCESS. PROCEEDS GO TOWARDS FUND FOR STARVING BELGIAN CHILDREN. Not frequently in Fish, Greek have there been philanthropic functions I fetched forward with more • cogent claim to the community's charitable consideration than that of the child ren's concert, which took place last Wednesday week, December 2nd. And that the public realised the ob ligation it owed was made mater ially manifest by the crowded house that greeted the juveniles' enliven ing, enthusiastic efforts to entertain and amuse. For the youngsters had decided upon a great and generous action, namely, the giving towards a fund for starving Belgian children the entire proceeds, less expenses, of their concert. Regarded from the child's ingen uous view point (and through the nebulous spectacles of disillusioned age also) it was a fine, a noble thing for them to do, involving as it did, the sacrificing (entirely voluntary on tlioir part) of much' youthful pleasure, and the foregoment of a ...

FIXING PRICE OF WHEAT [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 11 December 1914

FIXING PRICE OF. WHEAT By D.B.W. "That there is nothing new under the sun" is an axiom accepted by the world for the last 4000 years, and therefore one is not surprised to re member that when our Australian Go vernments rashly entered on the work of fixing the price of one class of food by law, in the alleged interests of consumers, but to the great detri ment of producers, these sapient legis lators were only doing what long ex perience had shown to be ail act of folly. The Victorian and other Govern ments might have been forgiven had llioy set about this task ■with a full consciousness of its wide-spreading character, but, like a child that inter feres with the delicate machinery of a 'watch, they -were quite satisfied with themselves ■when they found that t!iov had by stirring up the works caused the hands to go round at a faster rate. That .in a little- while the machine thus ignorantly inter fered with should suddenly come to a full stop with a whirr and a whiz i: of no moment ...
