REALLY RATHER DIFFICULT. "Well, old man," called out the bachelor friend, as he hastened to wards the station, "and how's the family ?" The much-married man laid a re straining hand upon his shoulder. "My children," he said, "are at a very diiiicult age just now." "Difficult !" inquired his friend. "But they're all past the measles and the teething age, aren't they ?" "Yes, long ago. But, my good fellow, you don't know what a father's troubles are.

Floral Islands. THE SCILLIES AND THEIR PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 23 October 1914

Floral Islands. THE SOIL/LIES • AND THEIR PEOPLE.' Miss Jessie Mothersole, in her book on "Scilly"—has, of course (says the" "Westminster Gazette") a good deal to say about the floral wealth of the islands. Geraniums and v fuchsias, she tells, reach a great height, climbing to the caves of the houses, and sometimes blos soming all tho year round. It is said that an islander once replied with indignation to a stranger's tactless comment on the scarcity of wood, "Indeed, ive can heat our ovens with our geranium faggots !" The book, which tells the story of the isles, their folk and their flowers, makes reference to the cheer ful kindliness of disposition among the inhabitants" which at once makes the visitor feel quite at home. This kindliness is shown in many little ways, even where there would be much, excuse for contrary behaviour. A visitor and his wife were onco trying to scale a stone fence—with no evil intent, but all the same it was trespassing. An islander who was working in ...

FEDERAL ISSUES. A PATRIOTIC OPPOSITION [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 23 October 1914

FEDERAL ISSUES. A PATRIOTIC OPPOSITION Liberals who read the speeches de livered by Mr. Cook, Sir John Forrest 6nd Sena'or Milleri on the Address in Rep-y are justly proud of the patriotic tone which irmked the three utterances. " The opposition ^,e behind the Governmem most cordially with its best support in prosecuting the war to the end," said Mr. Cook, nor was the ex Treasurer or the ex-Minister of Defence one whit behind in offering heartiest co-operation. In giving the assurance they ,did, the leaders of the Liberal Party simply carried out the wishes of their supporters right throughout the Commonwealth. To those who realise the gravity of the position, party spleen appears monstrous. If there are any who do not realise it, they can not do better than' weigh these words spoken by Senator Millen :—"Australia is the price which will be'claimed by Germany should she win in the present conflict, which God forbid- should be the case. No sacrifices which Australia is called upon by...

A MUSICAL FOUNDLING. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 23 October 1914

A MUSICAL FOUNDLING. The man to whom Great Britain is said to owe her National An them was a foundling. There is a fctory which says he was the son of the Marquis of Halifax, but this is not likely to be true, otherwise, he would scarcely have known 'the extreme depths ok poverty which .at time were his lot. Henry Carey—that was his name— -was a great satirist and a born musician. His was a most amaz ing personality, all contradictions, and although he himself could claim no one as parent, he scorned those of lowly birth. A great deal of money was spfent on his musical education by uhknowu and unseen hands, and Carey never knew from what source it came. Three famous musicians of the day were his teachers, and they succeed ed in teaching him to be a failure at earning his own living. He be gan ;his .career by giving cheap les sons. Then he fell in love with the daughter of one of his rich pa trons; but her parents crushed his hopes in this direction so decisively ■that his life was e...

THE "FIRST GENTLEMAN'S " LAST DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 23 October 1914

THE " FIRST GENTLEMAN'S " LAST DAY. The death of George IV. at Wind sor, June 26, 1830, was neither an event of much national import ance nor a cause of great national regret. While his instability of character kept him from exercising any real weight in State affairs, the immorality and double-dealing of his conduct had alienated all classes of the - community. Through out his long and unedifying contest with his wife, Caroline, the senti ment of the people had been strong ly ' antagonistic to him, and his constitutional insincerity and menda city excited the contempt of those in contact with him. His last illness was painful and lingering, dating from early in the year, although for long secrecy was maintained thereon by those «bout liim. His disease, however, steadify increased until reticence ceased to be politic, or, indeed, pos sible, when late in March,. he be came unable to take his customary exercise in the Park. From time to time indeed, the Court organs, with a determined...

AN EARLY EIGHTEENTH CENTURY IMPOSTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 23 October 1914

AN EARLY EIGHTEENTH CEN TURY IMPOSTOR. On June 23, 1703, William Ful ler, "Cheat-master General of Eng land,"' received a severe sentence, after one of the most extraordi nary careers ever recorded. Fuller was the son of a butcher at Milton, in Kent, and became an apprentice in London but wearying of the humdrum life, he disappeared and was next heard of as page to Lord Melford. Being of handsome appearance, he rose rapidly, and was able, by a scries of frauds, to be come possessed of some wealth. Then 4ie began to pose, first as General Fuller, and, later on, taking the title of Sir William Fuller. Finally he created himself a peer. For some years the butcher's son was treated as of the rank he claimed to be, and at last his au dacity became so groat that he ac tually wrote to the Speaker of the House of Commons, declaring that he had knowledge of some State secrets which had been confided to him by "his friend, the late King James." But in spite of his dis play and extravagance, d...

CAPTAIN BAKER. , . Sir Samuel White Baker, the dis .vtinguished African traveller, who died . ' in 1893, had a noteworthy ances tor in his grandfather, Valentine ... Baker, a citizen of credit and re uown in Bristol. , \ Valentine Baker entered the Royal Navy in his youth, but quitted the ' service to take independent command of a privateer, an eightecn-gun sloop named the Caesar, fitted out at the expense of himself and some friends. On June 27, 1782, when England was at war with. France, Spain, and Holland, Captain Baker fell in with a French frigate carrying thirty two guns. Despite his great in feriority in armament and men, he gave battle, and so splendidly did lie fight his ship that the French frigate struck her flag. The Caesar, however, with all her boats smashed, crippled in her rig ging, and leaking like a sieve, w'ns unable to board her prize, and the Frenchman, perceiving the plight of liis conqueror, rehoisted his flag and sailed away, only the next day to be captured ...

THE ORCHARD. HUMUS OR VEGETABLE MATTER: , - Always aim at keeping up your humus supply (va^ptable matter), as' this is the first thin? a pla-it looks for (lihe the solids—chaff — to <he horse). It must be in the soil to enable the three essentials to plant life—phosphoric acid, ; o' svh and ni trogen—to thoroughly perform their functions.

PEN PICTURES OF THE PAST. THE MAN WHO MADE MODERN PARIS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 23 October 1914

PEN PICTURES OF THE PAST. ■ ♦ THE MAN WHO MADE MODERN PARIS. , The selection of Baron Hauss mann as Prefect of the Seine (a post analogous to that of the chair man of the London County Coun cil) on June 23, 1553, was appa rently just a local event of ordi nary importance, but was destined to have world-wide significance. The modern science of "town planning" the twenty-century development of the nineteenth-century movement in favour of " street improvements," was first carried thoroughly into practice, if not actually originated, by the man who transformed Paris from a Mediaeval town of tor tuous narrow streets to tho modern stately and broad-thoroughfared me tropolis of France. The Emperor Napoleon III., who had long lived in exile, had been struck by some of the London thoroughfares—Oxford-street and the Strand were noble streets in those days—and with the necessity of driving wide avenues up to the railway termini, which are the "city gates" of, a modern capital.

Hand-washing Extraordinary. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 23 October 1914

Hand-washing Extra ordinary. ^ Most people attribute the immen sely decreased rate of mortality in cases of severe surgical operations to the increased skill of the profes sion, to their greatly-improved in struments, and the more skilful nur sing which is obtained in these days. But the surgeon himself would tell you that it is almost all a matter of absolute cleanli ness, the fact that nothing is left undone to insure absolute freedom from infection of any kind. This fact is emphasised by the extraordi nary hand-washing regulations which arc in force at the various hospi tals. Everybody who is even re motely connected with an ap proaching operation is supposed to , spend twenty minutes in the all important process of washing his hands. For Ave minutes the surgeon washes his hands with soap and water, and then cleans his finger nails. When he has done this he spends another five minutes doing it all over again. But this is but a preparation for a third and far ' more drastic abluti...

WAR NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 23 October 1914

Germany has lost its dash, and the Allies are daily reinforcing. During the week four German sub marines have been sunk, and a Japan ese cruiser was destroyed by a floating mine. The Russians are everywhere suc cessful, and are preparing for an early invasion of Germany. The Germans are in flight from cer tain points in northern France, their plans having entirely failed. They have found it impossible to drive a wedge through the Allies. News of a decisive victory is confi dently expected in France, the belief being that the Allies have rendered u impossible tor reinforcements to reach the enemy. Believing the navy to be in its best state of efficiency the Navy League opposes a premature and ill-advised peace. Russia is conducting operations over a vast front extending from Poland to Galicia. There is no essential change in the disposition of her forces. The capture of many Austrian and German prisoners is reported. In the first ten weeks the war cost Great Britain ^51,500,000. Last...

Xow, the scaffolding was faulty, on i Brown had a good case for compensation ; so, as soon as he could walk, he betook him to a lawyer and laid his casa before him. The owners of the scaffolding con | tested the case—as is the way with owners—and in due course Brown and his solicitor made their way to the court, when the jury awa'djd the bruised bricklayer compensation to the extent of £20. In great jubilation Brown returned to the solicitor's office. Tt was then that the man of law really got to business. His costs and out-of-pocket expenses amounted to £18 19s. lOd.
