KANGAROO AND "HIPPO" FIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 30 January 1915
KANGAROO AND "HIPPO" FIGH.T. I:: Mr. Carl Hagenbeck, in his remini scences, told the following, story :- "On one occasion I had an anxious ten minutes in endeavouring to sepa rate a hippopotamus and a kanga roo. Next to the 'hippo's' stable was a compartment in which I had placed the largest kangaroo I ever had in miy possession. One night the kanga roo jumped over its fence into the 'hippo's' pen. I conclude it must have got frightened over something. The kangaroo landed in the 'hippo's' tank, which was empty. "It was one o'clock in the morning when the incident occurred, and when I arrived upon the scene I could not help smiling, the whole affair being so comical. There stood the monster 'hippo' with its enormous mouth .snapping at the hangaroo down in th'e tank below. . The moment the 'hippo' moved towards the tank the kangaroo took a mighty leap in the air, and struck his enemy on the face with his hind feet, inflicting terrible scratches with his claws. Try as it would the 'hip...

(ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.) UNDER THE BAN' eOF THE GZAR,. ---- OR, THE WINNING OF ISOLDE. By St. George Rathborne, Author of "Omar Kassam," etc. PART 9. CHAPTER XXIV.-(Continued.) The man who wrote upon'the wall was indeed the ill-fated officer who had been led out to execution less than forty-eight hours before. Apparently he had just learned that he had but a few hours to live, and his last act was to thus be iqueath his legacy to any unfortunate who might come after him. It was a noble deed, and worthy of being remembered, whether good came of it or not. In the briefest possible way, the Russian told that he had long been engaged in working a secret tunnel that would give him a chance for liberty-that but six o~r eight hours work would complete the job; and now he had only one hour to live, as he was to die at sunrise. Dugdale could not imagine anything more provoking than this. At the same time he was struck with the dramatic qualities of the situation, which certainly equalled anyth...
(ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.) UNDER THE BAN OF THE CZAR, OR, THE WINNING OF ISOLDE. PART 10. CHAPTER XXVIII.—(Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 6 February 1915
(ALL RIGHTS RESERVTR.) UNDER THE BAN eOF THE CZAR,a --------- OR,, THE WINNING OF ISOLDE. By St. George Rathborne, Author of "Omar Kassam," etc. PART 10. CHAPTER XXVIII.-(Continued.) Dugdale had his own ideas on this score. It would not be the first time a woman's whim or caprice had up set the carefully-arranged plans of noblemen or Czar. "What is your proposition, gene ral ?". "The baron was breathing all man ner of revenge upon you, but I have about convinced him that to publish the story of this wonderful ride to the border, which we would have to do in order to punish you, must only bring his wife's name into a noto riety he, as a gentleman, would seek to avoid." "Ah, his wife ! You mean, Isolde?" "Who will soon assume that rela tion. It is the Czar's desire-as un changeable as the laws of the Medes and Persians." "I am not so positive as you, fori things sometimes happen that are not dreamed of in your or my philo sophy. But, general, pray proceed." :"Accordingly he has consen...
THE NEW GRAMOPHONE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 6 February 1915
THE NEW G1RAM?OPfONE. Mrs. Waddle was in quite a state of texcitement when the new gramo phone arrived and thinking to give the parrot a surprise, she started the instrument olf with " Rocked in the Cradle of the Deep," as sung by Mr. Waddle in his most approved draw ing-room fashion. At the very first note Polly opened her eyeg ýin surprise, and then flew to her perch,- where she rocked her self to and fro in deep and speechless astonishment, while the machine ground out the air. " There, Polly," said Mrs. Waddle, when the song had come to an end " What do you think of that ?" "My word," shrieked the old bird his head on one side, and winking wic?ldly, " my word, my word, my word ! We've got the old man bcxed this tire and no mistake."- .

AN AWFUL NIGHT IN AN ALPINE PASS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 6 February 1915
AN AWFUL NIGHT IN AN ALPINE PASS. ----+t----- How a mountaineering party lost its way in an Alpine snow storm, after a guide had first collapsed and then become delirious, and how it spent a night without food in a hole hewn out of the frozen snow is vividly described by Mr. Elliot Stock in the August number of "Travel and Exploration." "What's to be done, Hans ?" asked Mr. Stock when they knew they were lost; " we can't stop here. We shall be fro7en solid in a few hours." "We have to, Herr," replied the guide, soberly. "We must wait, al ways wait. We cannot move if we cannot see." They roughly hewed a small cave out of the snow on the mountain side and crept in. How the night passed is described as follows : "We must all have dozed, to be awakened roughly by one another at intervals ; for it would have been fatal to have slept outright in th'al intense cold. We were kept awake, 'oo, by our patient's delirious state. At odd moments he would spring into a sitting position, shout a wo...
SUNDIALS. THEIR ANTIQUITY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 6 February 1915
SUNDIALS. THEIR ANTIQUITY, The antiquity of the sundial is not the least of its charms. Primitive man obtained some idea of the time by placing a stick in the ground and notifg how the shadow fell. The ans_ cient Greeks had their sundials, and among the Elgin Marbles in the British Museum is to be found a four-faced dial unearthed at Athens. The Romans adopted sundials from the Greeks, and Cicero has placed on record the fact that he possessed one at his vila; The general adoption of sundials throughout the' civilise world was due to clerical infiuence. for the early Popes ordered that sun dials should be placed on various churches, in order that the people could ascertain the hour of the day. The use of, sundials, in England mad be said to date from the introduae tion of Christianity. The Venerabte Bede specially interested himself in the I matter, and every monaster, had its sundial. After a time every man of substance boasted one, and the old prints depicting Elizabethan gardens ...
ACROSS DEATH VALLEY. A Forbidding Desert. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 6 February 1915
.4 R Lubzd U.M I 6 VALLEY. A Forbidding Desert. ""It was as the sun was rising that we began our descent from Para mint Range to take our way across Death Valley, in. Southern .California. The mountain surface is in rolls and drifts until it reaches the edge of the valley, where we arrive at the. forbidding grey flat, level as a bil liard-table, save where here and there an encrustation of soda in some form permitted the foot of man or beast to break through this slim crust. Our route lay directly across the sterile desert, and before us ran ; aggon tracks that were made by miners and adventurers who came to the silver-mines of Paramint;- Old Tex, our guide, said that one could sed on that desert waste the tracks of the waggons owned by the early emigrants, of whom a ,number per ishe?l for want of water in the years 18 19-50. When about seven miles out on the desert we came across the bones of three oxen, cracked, worn: and weather-beaten, and three spokes near them. A little furthe...
SOME HEALTH PROVERBS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 6 February 1915
SOME HEALTH PROVERBS. '"An open window is better than an open grave." "Warm rooms have killed more peo ple than ever froze to death." "Wire screens in the windows may keep crape from the door." "A fly in the milk often means a member of the family in the grave." "If some people were as much afraid of flies as they are of bad water,, there would be less typhoid."' "When you see a child looking like an angel, do not kiss it; you might make a real angel out of it.' - It is possible to go wrong in' many ways; but we can go right in one way only.-Aristotle.. To suffer and be strong is not easy, but courage grows with use. To sit on a sweetheart's knee is a practice -sanctioned by law, ancient tradition, and modern urge.-Judge Adams.

"No." "Anything for Bob Murphy ?" "No, not a bit." "Anything for Terry Murphy ?" '"No,, nor for Pat Murphy, not Dennis Murphy, nor Pete Murphy, nor Paul Murphy, nor for any Mur phy, dead, living, born or unborn, native or foreign, civilised or uncivi lised, savage or barbarous, male or female, black or white, franchised or unfranchised, naturalized or other? wise.

QUEENSLAND'S PEARLING GROUNDS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 6 February 1915
QUEENSLIAND'S PEARLING GROUNDS. The pearl fisheries of Northern Aus tralia are the most lucrative and the least undeistood of the world's fisheries. The pearling grounds, as they are termed locally, extend along the north east and northern coasts of Queensland. In years gone by, diving was mostly carried on by naked divers in comparatively -shal low waters, but the use of the diving: dress is now almost universal. The profits of pearling are enormous. The wages of the divers range from £1 to £2 per month, and a "lay" of £20 on each ton of shell lifted. The diver's tender is paid £4 per month, and the four meTmbers of the crew, 30/ to £2 10/. per month. These are the wages the men sign articles at, but comparatively little money is paid, as the crews more often than not "cut out" their wages in "slop chest," viz., goods purchased from. the master-pearler, who makes more than 150 per cent. clear profit from this part of the business alone. The pearling boats are worked from a schooner...
Weight for Fish. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 6 February 1915
Weight for Fish. By their anxiety to catch all the fish they can in the one day anglers are frequently guilty of practices which spoils their future sport, and as.repeated warning from the Fish eries depiartment have failed to make niaiy fishermen, chiefly holi day-makers, observe the restrictions which the law imposes on all anglers, it is the intention of the department to increase its staff of inspectors, and launch prosecutions in every instance where the law is not observed. Enormous shoals of young schilapper. weighing from 3oz to 4oz are in Port Phillip Bay at the present time, and the Fisher ies department have received in formation that anglers have cap tured many of these small fish. Their diminutive size practically renders them useless for consump tion, whereas if allowed a year they would not only provide good sport, but would be a. valuable asset. up till February 7 the minimum weight for schnapper is 12oz., -but on and after that date any person who catches schnapper ...
MARRIAGE CUSTOMS IN HOLLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 6 February 1915
MARRIA(E GUSTOMIS Itn HOLLAND. ------+--- -A cturious old custom still exists in many provinces of Holland. If a young man is in love with a' girl, and wishes to ask her hand in mar riage, he goes about it in the follow ing manner. He buys a small sweet cake, and, wrapping it up in soft paper, proceeds to the house of his inamorata; upon his arrival, he is ushered into the midst of the family circle; without a word, he walks up to the young lady he wishes to make his wife, and lays the cake on the table before her. The rest of the family affect not to notice anything unusual, and continue their work, or their reading. The young man turns aside and talks to the father or mother on some very ordinary sub ject, keeping his eyes eagerly fixed on the girl's face while he is conversing. If she accepts his offer, she takes up the cake and eats it. Sometimes. though Dutch, she is coquettish, and tortures the young man by turning it over and playing with it, before she decides to bite it, an...

Qiieanseliff Fifty Years Ago.

Tae steamer Resolute was specially chartered for the purpose of bring ing people from Melbourne, and she arrived alongside the Queens cliff jetty with about 60 passengers and a fine brass band cheering them up, the coaches of Mr Stoneman, and the private carriage of Mr Gray " were ready to receive and transport the strangers from the steamer to the bazaar gratis.i

SOME PLEASANT TATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 6 February 1915
SOME PLEASANT TATTLE. "Some man," says a writer ii a home journal, in disclosing 'tricks' of the l furnishing trade, 'can take new *furniture and make it look as if it was made a entury ago.' But there is nothing remarkable in this. An intelligent child, can do the same. "I believe," says Mr. William Poe, "that in 300 years Mr. Bernard Shaw's writings will still interest people." Mr. Shaw himself, however regards Mr.. Poel's. estimate as an absurdly moderate one. "All a woman asks is to be loved," says a poet. Then all those tales about her wanting new frocks, motor ear, and unlimited Jewellery \are a vile slander. "Take away woman," says an ar dent "votes-for-women" supporter i4 me of the dailies, "and what would follow ?" Why, man, of course. An Irish M.P. is well remembered for his first and only oratorical ef tort in the House. On rising, he de clared with due solemnity. "Mr. Speaker, I cannot sit still here and keep silent without rising and saying a few words." 'I know now," s...
