Military Blunder Proven Welcome. GALLANT FRENCH RESPONSE TO MOCOLISATION ORDER. A French brigadier named Blion and a telegraph official, who foo tworn. them blundered over a war message and brought about a mo bilisation of troops through a largo district of Franco, cscaped the penal ties of their error because it afford ed the authorities an object-lesson that delighted them.' The' Mayors of the communes oi Arracourt which sprang to arms at midnight at the summons of drum and tosoin received two messages, which they treasure in their ar chives. One from the President of the Council, and in the game oi the Minister of the Interior and the Minister of Public Works, is in the ^following terms : The mistake of an official in the postal service at Arracourt has demonstrated with what y.eal, ra pidity, and patriotic, ardour those who are liable to military service would have responded to the call of duty if the order for mobllisa-' tion had really been given.

THE FIRST' SERIAL STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 20 June 1914

THE FIRST' SERIAL STORY. . | Tho first daily pnpor—the " Daily i Courant"—made its bow to tho ltri tish public in 3702. It was filled up almost, exclusively with transi tions from tho foreign press, and of homo news it contained scarcely a vestige. What ia equally worth recalling is that the first serial story was "ito binson Crusoe." which began ro run in the "Lfondon I'ost" on October 7, ; 1719, and concluded on October 15), 1720. Newspapers were heavily handicap ped in thoso days by the various taxes which they were obliged to |>oy—tho newspaper tax (from id. ! to 4d. each copj-) ; the advertisement tax (from Ifl. -to 2s. 6d. each ad- ; vertisement), and tho paper tax ; (frcim ljd. to 8d. per pound). j It was not until 18G1 that the last of these cruel imposts waa re- j moved, and that newspaper enter- | prise obtained full and unfettered -i scope. Seven years later the first • halfpenny pai>er—tho " Northern Echo"—sought the patronage of a n'ondoring public. " j

PEN PICTURES OF THE PAST A COMING CENTENARY. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 20 June 1914

PEN PICTURES OF THE PAST • 1—:— r ■ A COMING CENTENARY. The inscription "Pyrenees" appears on the colours of many of our Bri tish regiments, yet few of the san guinary struggles by which Soult kept Wellington at bay for three long months are familiar to the average Englishman. When the late King Edward VII. was residing at Biarritz—his Inst holiday abroad—he took a special pleasure in visiting those historical spots, of which many lay within easy distance, for, . as a matter of fact, Riarritr Station is . built, in the middle of one of the great battle fields, and the porch of the Eng lish church which the King attend ed on Sundays is'lined with me-' moriol slabs to the memory of British officers killed on l-'rench Soil in 1813-14. It was tho lato King's idea that a modest monument should bo erected nt Vera to the memory of the heroes of Alton's Division, who, on October 7. 1813, ono hundred years ago, Btormcd the beetling crags around tho little Spanish village.

AFTER ELEVEN YEARS. -Vij- . 1 WOMAN KEVEALS SECUET OF A MUKPEli. The truth with regard to a mur der committed eleven years ago, which has since completely batlled tho police, has now been revealed owing to the amnesty granted 011 account of the funeral of the late Rmperor of Japan. On February tt, 1901, a rich old man, named Koniine, was murdered with his wife by two burglars, who clTcctod their escape successfully. One of the murdorers gamed Ilatsu goro was arrested on a difTerent charge, and, indeed, without the po lice or anybody else suspecting that lie was implicated in the death of Komine. A woman named Sada was hia wife then, but since his imprison ment she has married again and has been living happily and com fortably. She learnt that Hatsu goro, her former husband, was likely to be released under the amnesty to well behaved prisoners, and fearing that he would blackmail her and her present husband, went to the police and revealed the whole story of the murder.

INTERESTING ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 20 June 1914

INTERESTING ITEMS. Since the Watford Guardians adopt ed stone-breaking for tramps a year ago there have been 2,966 fewer vagrants in the casual ward. • A society has baen formed at Ber lin for the reform of men's attire. The members pledge themselves not to wear linen shirts, waistcoats, bowlers, silk hats, nor long trou sers, but only straw hats, flannel shirts, jackets, and knee breeches. A penny-in-the-slot machine has been designed which will be a boon to smokers. The machine cleans a pipe by forcing a draught of air through the stem, scrapes the bowl, and delivers the pipe with a piece of paper to wipe the mouthpiece. William Berry, of Alabama, has just secured the arrest of Freeman .Long, a negro, who murdered his father forty years ago. Berry was only nine years old when he vowed he* would hunt down the murdorer, who broke out of jail while on trial for the crime. The Marquise de Guerry has left £4,000 to the city of I'aris to be de voted to the ransom of articles pawned by t...

BISHOPS AT PLAY. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 20 June 1914

BISHOPS AT PLAY. Bishop Samuel Wilberforce abound ed in riddles and playful jests. Here is a question he once asked of the then Archdeacon of Oxford: "Why is an archdeacon's apron like unwhol some food?" The good man replied, thoughtfully, that he did not know. "Because," said the bishop, "it goes against the stomach." "Who has been the greatest finan cier in the world?" "Noah, because he successfully float ed a limited company, whilst the rest of the world was in liquidation." "What is the first banking trans action mentioned in the history of the world?" "When Pharoah received a check at the bank of the Red Sea, which liad been crossed by Moses and company." These lines are copied from an old book:— "Written on a looking glass— I change, and so do women too; But I reflect—that women never do. "Answered by a lady— If women reflected, O scribbler! declare, What man, faithless man, would be blessed by the fair?" Archbishop Whateley once asked a friend the difference between a look in...

THE BISHOP'S ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 20 June 1914

THE BISHOP'S ADVICE. A typical story of the BisV.op of Ripon, Dr. Boyd Carpenter, i? told by the Rev. T. Selby Henvey, in "Attic Salt." It appears that v-iien JVIr. I-Ien rey was in for priest's orders the Bishop gave an afternoon's instruc tion to the candidates on the subject of preaching. His lordship save his hearers an opportunity of asking questions, and a deacon said: — "My lord, it has been my habit dur ing my diaconate, after deciding up on a text, to open all my commeirar ies 011 the passage to see what has been written upon it by the greatest theologians, and thus to compose my sermon. Do you recommend me to continue such a method?" | To which the bishop replied:—"( | must warn you that such a method requires the utmost care, or your ser | mon may resemble a patchwork quilt, or, in more Scriptural phrase, 'a coat of many colors.' Take an. illustration from a coffee-mill. Suppose you place a number of coffee berries in the mill, they will be disintegrated units with no coh...

"Come Over Here." [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 20 June 1914

"Come Over Here." Lunatic (looking over the wall of the asylum at a laborer working): "This is a fine day, sir." Laborer: "It is indeed." Lunatic: "Are you married?" Laborer: "Yes." Lunatic: "How much a week have you?" Laborer: "Only twenty shillings, and I have to support my wife and family on that." Lunatic: "Well, all I can say is that you are on the wrong side of the wall." Religion and Government appear to me the two subjects which, of all others, should belong to the common talk of people who enjoy the blessings of freedom. Messrs. Stone and Co., meat sales men, Metropolitan Meat Market, Mel bourne, report that prices have been ruling high. During the first week of this month they obtained up to 7V&d. per pound for porkers (prime small), and for prime large (80 to 100 lbs.), 6d. to 7d.; for best calves to 4%d per lb., and medium 3d. per lb.; veal went to 3%d. per lb., and medium quality slightly lower.

A FRIEND ADVISED HER. The following letter from Mrs. Thomas Brown, of Healesville, Vic., will prove interesting to many of our readers:— "Some time ago I suffered from a severe attack of kidney complaint. The first symptoms were great weak ness and emaciation with terrible pain all over my body, especially across my back. My whole body was racked with pain, and I could get but little ease day or night. Medicines were prescribed for me, but failed to do me any good. I cared very little what became of me, I was so weak and miserable. I had nearly given up all hope when a friend advised me to try Warner's Safe Cure. I commenced to take it, and derived great 'benefit from taking the contents of the first, bottle. I continued to take the medi cine, getting stronger and better svery dry. I soon regained my former strength and energy, the pains left me, and I seemed to have a new lease of life. I am now quite strong and happy." Warner's Safe Cure is a wonderful r edy in cases of kidney and...

A GENEROUS BETTING MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 20 June 1914

A GENEROUS BETTING MAN. Mr. R. Caton Woodville, the famous battle artist, tells, in his volume of re collections, a good story about the late Colonel North. Once when Wood ville was staying with liim a letter arrived from a bookmaker with a cheque for £1750. One of the next letters was from a widow, telling him of the death of her husband, a fellow-engineer of the Colonel's in Chili, and asking him to assist her a little, as she was left pen niless through no fault of her hus band's, but by sheer bad luck. "Yes," the Colonel said, "I remember her well; a good sort, she is, and her hus band was a white man and one of the i best." Taking the bookmaker's cheque he signed his name on the back and sent it to her. The widow, who expected perhaps a £10 note, received £1,570! Another good story concerns Queen Victoria and one of the artist's pic tures. On the eve of leaving for an expedition Mr. Woodville owed a large bill for furniture to a Tottenham Court road firm.
