CHAPTER XXII. A Check. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 25 September 1914
CHAPTER XXII. A Check. I Daniel Harley, with Brigden by Has side, shuffled along the road mutter ing angrily to himself, eager to find anybody upon whom to put the blame for this unexpected reverse. He had been beaten by an. honest man in a perfectly legitimate way, and this fact angered the old rogue more than the loss of his money. He had looked for ward to a fortune from the great in vention, and had made up his1 avari cious mind that Geoffrey Herepath should benefit nothing by it, and here in a moment the whole thing had slip ped through his fingers. Oh, some body should pay dearly for this wretched fiasco. "It's rather awkward," Brigden ven tured at last, somewhat nervously. "Who would have guessed that Here path would show fight like that?" "You should have guessed it," Har ley grunted wrathfully. "Nobody but an idiot would have put his head into a trap like that. If I hadn't been de luded into going to Long Acre every thing would have gone right." ■ "But you wanted to go to L...
PADDY ADMIRES RUSSIA. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 25 September 1914
PADDY ADMIRES RUSSIA. "I got a great opinion of them Rus sians," Paddy remarked, as he picked up liis hundredth boot for the night. "They don't get top place in the ^pa pers, because they're the furthest away from our own fellers, but they're pushin' on slow an' sure." "They're a long chalks aw'y from Berlin," said the porter. "You're a 'urry-up sort of bloke fer a pommy," Paddy said placidly. "I never seen you move so quick your self that you can afford to say much. The Russians' 'as got a 'ole lot of things to clean up before they think of sittin' down to breakfast in Pots dam. That's right enough. But they're doin' their little job steady and slow, from what we can 'ear. I can under stand 'ow it is. Look at me an' you, with eighty or ninety pairs of boots of a night. We don't expect to git out the pack of cards 'arf-a-hour after we started work, do we? No, sonny; there's big bits of work that takes time to do. "The Russians is like wrestlers; and if you want to pick out one sport...
AN INDIAN SAND STORM. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 25 September 1914
AN INDIAN SAND STORM. Since sunset it had been growing gradually hotter until at last when we finally settled down to bed after a few envious remarks, in which Es quimaux and polar bears figured largely, there was none of ub but would have gladly exchanged places with any furnace tender m England. It was far too hot to sleep under bed clothes, and we had for some time used them t supplement the pillow. After opening all doors and win dows to their fulle-.t extent and ex plaining to the punkah-wallah that the stopping of the punkahs was the signal for his immediate assassina tion, we gradually dropped asleep. Two or three hours later I was aroused by what at first seemed to be three or four batteries of artillery firing off at close range. Upon sitting up under my mosquito net I discover ed the noise to be caused by the doors and windows banging to and fro. We who had not long been in the country were all the more astonished when we realised that all the time there was hardly a breat...
THE MODERN GIRL. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 25 September 1914
THE MODERN GIRL. We knock and criticise her, We scold, apostrophize her, We wish that she were wiser, More capable and kind. Her path we're always stalking To criticise her talking, Her clothes, her ways of walking, Her manners and her mind. We say, "Oh, highty-tighty! She's frivolous and flighty, And all her ways are mighty Undignified to see. She dances and she chatters, Our golden rule she shatters, And laughs at serious matters With unabated glee!" We chide and we correct her, We shadow and detect her, We study and dissect her, With all her smiles and tears. And find, on looking o'er her (And learning to adore her), She's just like girls before her, For twenty thousand years! One of the best-known residents in Townsville for many years was an old billygoat. On a thirsty day the goat would make the round of the pubs, following parched men in as they breasted the bar for a drinlc. Should the men be strangers, and fail to no tice the patiently-waiting goat, the beast would retire t...
MORAL REFLECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 25 September 1914
MORAL REFLECTIONS. True manhood comes from self-con trol—from subjection of the lower powers to the higher conditions of our being. The road ambition travels is too narrow for friendship, too crooked for love, too rugged for honesty, too dark for science. Do not make the mistake of trying to forget your mistakes. Keep them in mind, study them, and use them as helps to success. If you would touch a nettle without being stung by it take hold of it stout ly. Do the same to other annoyances and few things will ever disturb you. Music helps soldiers to drill and march. The tunes which the bands play are lively and merry, for as the music is so will be the march. It iB possible to travel through life to the tune of praise. The habit of counting our mercies is as easy to form as the habit of grumbling. What a man loves colors his life as surely as a dye colors what is plunged into it. A man who loves money is colored in all his being by that love. His whole nature daily grows differ ent fr...

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 25 September 1914
FROM YARIOUS SOURCES. I i It did not happen in Victoria, of course. We have always the consola tion of knowing that nothing can hap pen in Victoria that is not in accord ance with the highest British ideals of justice, and strict impartiality. But a Light Horseman whose kit in cludes four horses is a volunteer to be looked at twice, even if he has a dicky leg. The eager soldier had been pass ed by the doctor in his country town. The fact is set down without com ment. At headquarters the examining doctor's brows went up as he looked at the leg. "Sorry," he said, "but you can't go." The volunteer answered with a brave attempt at philosophy: "Then I suppose I must take myself and my four horses home again." An officer heard, and followed the man out of the tent. "Did you say four horses?" he inquired. "Come into this other tent. Doc, have a look at this chap's arm." The doctor did so. "Arm's all right," he said; "he can go. His arm is O.K. Want a certificate?" "I'm glad your arm's all ...
AUSTRALIA AND THE WAR OUR OPPORTUNITY TO EXTEND OVERSEAS TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 25 September 1914
AUSTRALIA AND THE WAR : I OUR OPPORTUNITY TO EXTEND | OVERSEAS TRADE. ""Wliat effect will tlie war have upon industrial Australia?" is a query that is exercising the minds of many people to-day, and those who have the welfare of the Commonwealth at heart . prophesy great extensions of our manufacturing activities. Our yearly importations of goods from Germany exceed in value £7,000,000, so with that source of supplies closed there is a nice plum to be picked by enterpris ing factory owners who seize the op portunity. The infinite variety of goods, ranging from textiles and lea therware to cement, crockery, and beer, which can and are being turned out by local factories, are of similar nature to the bulk of these large im- • portations, so when stocks of the imported goods run out -the local manufacturer should be prepared to step in and secure the trade. ' Of course, we have not the plant avail able at present for certain of the more advanced manufactures, -such as elec trical and o...

TROOPS' DESTINATION. ON ACTIVE SERVICE. AUTHORISED STATEMENT. WINTRY WEATHER UNIFORMS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 25 September 1914
TROOPS' DESTINATION. ON ACTIVE SERVICE. AUTHORISED STATEMENT. WINTRY WEATHER UNJFORMS. . By Keith Murdoch in the Sydney "Sun." "Room yet," is tlie report of General Bridges to the Defence Minister after. a hurried visit to northern capitals. ' Men are being rejected in scores, for . the work is to be serious, and the Australian troops must be. the best there. "Room for the best" might have been the general's report, if he had not been anxious not to discour • age men of all kinds from volunteer ing. It has been noticed ill each State that most of the accepted men are from the cities, and Mr. Millen was not long in putting his finger on the cause—disinclination of country dwellers to pay their fares to the capi tals on the chance of passing the se B vere medical tests. A scheme is now being prepared whereby these -men shall be either recouped for such ex - ~ penditure,. or examined at recruiting centres within reasonable distance of • their homes. When the troopships begin to go, sig...
RED CROSS WORK. WHERE WOMEN WILL WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 25 September 1914
RED CROSS WORK. WHERE WOMEN WILL WORK. With war pending, it is interesting to know what women have done in other countries in Red Cross work, which so far is only in contemplation in Australia. From a lady now in Australia who at one time belonged to a branch of the Society in Scotland, some knowledge of the work there and in England was gained. Scotland, thanks to the Duchess of Montrose; is ahead of England in its Red Cross organisation. The Duchess is president of the Scottish branch, in addition to her own county of Stir ling, and some years ago she affiliated the St. Andrew's Ambulance Associa tion. There is nothing about Red Cross work that she does not know, or cannot do. Not a corner of Scotland where there is gathered anything of a population but she has planted a busy branch. Another lady of rank who has done .much is the Countess of Eglinton and Wint.on. She has organised Ayrshire into no fewer than nine complete dis tricts. : The Duchess of Norfolk has done much for the ...
NEUTRAL COLORS. VALUABLE IN WARFARE. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 25 September 1914
NEUTRAL COLORS. VALUABLE IN WARFARE. One of the most striking changes in modern warfare has been the adop tion by armies and navies of schemes of neutral coloring, with the object of making them as nearly invisible as possible when viewed from a distance. The South African war first brought to public notice the now famous khaki, which is to-day the service color of the British forces the world over; but for years previously to the Boer strug gle the clay-tinted-cloth had been uti lised by troops in India, and was origin ally adopted there owing to its similar ity to the predominant coloring of the Indian landscapes. The brown of the South African veldt went, further to aid the concealing quail Ubs of khaki, and now in active service upon . the French frontier it will be the best color at this time of the year, when all the foliage is taking on autumn tints and the earth in the vicinity of trees will be carpeted with leaves of the same hue. Our French allies last year adopted khaki a...
CROSS-CHANNEL HUMOR. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 25 September 1914
CROSS-CHANNEL HUMOR. You can laugh, when trouble hits you, You can smile when clouds appear, You can grin when worry "gits you," And when disappointment's near; You can laugh when rain is falling, If you are a cheerful soul, But you cannot do much laughing When the boat begins to roll. You can bear up under sorrow, You can calmly shoulder woe; And perhaps no sign of anguish Will your visage ever show; You may hide all sign of weakness, Though your hopes are in the ditch; But you cannot hide your feelings When the boat .begins to pitch. Yet the cheer-up poet tells you To present a cheerful face, And to smile at all your troubles, And to never show a trace Of the petty griefs that fret you, But y u'd lose your self-control, And you will not smile, I'll bet you, When the boat begins to roll.

Rising to the Occasion. Private Pat O'Flynn, one of a ratigu'e party, had just finished taking in the colonel's luggage when, that omnipotent person's lady ques tioning him, he made it appear that he had been the only one engaged in the work. "You must be quite exhausted," she cried. "What will you have to drink—a glass of sherry, a glass of port, or some hot rum?" v "Why, plaze yei ladyship,"' answered Pat, as a mark of decorum, "I'm not thirsty." "That may be," rejoined her lady ship; "but a man of my husband's distinguished regiment rendering a service must drink with me." "Sure, in that case, yer honoress," replied Pat, "it's rude to be back ward, so I'll have the sherry now. and will be drinking the port while jrer honoress is mixing the rum." m
On Account. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 25 September 1914
On Account. Peggy Newton had been a faithfui household domestic for years, and did not grumble much when her wages were occasionally passed over. But as time went on and her wage? fell more and more into arrears, she ventured to ask something "on ac count." "Why, haven't I paid your wages lately, Peg? How careless of me!" her mistress said. "I'm sorry I have no money in the house just now, biit here's a smart cloak which I've ceased to wear and -which is only «i wee 'bit out of fashion. You'll take it in lieu of wages, won't you?" "No, ma'am, I'm sure I sha'n't.'' said Peg, wrathfully, eyeing the faded cloak. "A 'Peg I may be by name, 'but I won't be that sort.of peg that people hang cast-off clothes on —not if I know it." . There are tw&lt;3 reasons why some people don't. mind their own busi ness. One is that they haven't any mind, the other that they haven't any business.
