A South Pacific Echo. REMINISCENCES OF "EARLY DAYS" WITH AN "OLD-TIMER." [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 4 September 1914
A South Pacific Echo. REMINISCENCES OF " EARLY HAYS" WITH AN " OLD- > TIMER." An elderly, retired South Sea Is land trader has supplied Some in teresting information regarding the trado customs of the Pacific Is landers in the early day#, "I have 110 objection," he remark ed, "to your making uso of my re marks, as long as you withhold my name, ns I do not wish to be drawn into any controversy, sinco yon plainly see, I am too old for that sort of thing now." On being assured that his wish would bo respected, ho proceeded to nnrrnto tho following "r.efore wo whitemon came to the Islands to trade, the ' niggers' did not have many wants, but after our arrival on tho scene their requirements underwent n rapid change. Most of them suddenly discovered that jows* harps, tobacco, medicines, J china arm bracelets, and especially live dogs, were absolute necessities of life. And I guess it was not for us to ' wade in' and alter their views." TUB DOt; " STUNT." "But why wero'livo dogs in suc...
THE JUDGE WHO DIDN'T JOKE. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 4 September 1914
THE JUDGE WHO DIDN'T JOKE. The funny sayings of a judge who never jolted form one of the finest collections of Judicial humour ever published. This is "Arabiniana," a selection of the dicta of Sergeant William Arabin, who sat us a judge at the Old Jluiley from 1830 to IS.'W. For instance, his remark to counsel : "Jf you can show precisely at what moment the offence was com mitted, and prove that the prisonei was not there when he did it, he could not possibly have done it." And he sagely added, as an after thought : "We cannot divest oursel ves of common-sense in a Court of Justice." Another axiom he delivered him self of lias been fathered on many other occupants of the Bench : " if ever there was a case of clearer evidence than this case, this case is that case."
Eyebrows and Character. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 4 September 1914
Eyebrows and Character. j It is now conceded that the Greek eyebrow is quit© in accord with the conception of mere physical beauty in women. , .Like the rose bud mouth, it docs not indicate the highest order of intelligence, and the arch is expressive always of greater sensibility and greater sense of character. Scant growth of the eyebrows in variably denotes luck: of vitality, and external applications are uses* less to. promote or produce a growth until the general health improves ; on the contrary, heavy, thick eye brows indicate a strong constitu tion and great physical endurance. They are not beautiful on a wo man's face, however much they may signify either mental or bodily vigour, and when they are not only heavy, hut droop and meet at the nose, they are disagreeable, and are said to accompany an insincere and prying nature. Romantic Women usually have a very well-defined arch in tho centre of the eyebrow, while a sense of humour is indicated in the arch nearer the nose. Lon...

THE BAND CONTEST, The band contest wns a huge suc cess. All tlie afternoon, with brief intervals, the bauds were competing for tho judge's good opinion, and the mUbic distinctly added to the pleasures of the afternoon.

The result was not declared until late in the evening, when it was found that the Wycheproof band (whi:h played last) Imd secured first prize, and Ko» rong Vale second The win was a. popular one locally, as the conductor of the winning band, Mr W Martin, was formerly bandmaster at) Wedder bum.

MITSON'S DOG. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 4 September 1914
MITSON'S DOG. .+ Mitson's shop in our place has been closed for a week or so. Mit son was perfectly willing to have it open, but circumstances rendered it necessary for him to suspend bu siness for a while. There had been a good many burglaries, and Mitson bought a dog to keep ? in his shop nt night. The man that sold tho dog said that its one strong peculiarity was its vigilance. So the man turned the dog loose in the shop, and Mitson locked up for the night and went home. When he came down in tho morn ing the dog flew at him as soon as. he opened the door, and attempted to breakfast on Mr. Mitson's logs ; thereupon Mr. Mitson shut the door and sat down to think. Then ho went after the man who sold the dog ; but bu had gone out of town to sec his aunt, and wouldn't be;back for a month. Mitson then undertook to coax the dog through the crack of the door ; but the ani mal still maniftsted a resolute de termination to chew Mitson's legs, And so Mitson closed the door again and began t...

THE RELIEF OF MAFEKING. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 4 September 1914
THE RELIEF OF M A F EKING. On May 4( 1800, Lord Roberts despatched Colonel Mahon-a cool hcaded Irishman-from Kimbcrley with a relief force numbering 010, to succour Mafeking, which was be ing so gallantly defended by Col onel Baden-Powell against the Boers. On the 31 tlx Mahon reached and left Vryburg, the half-way house be tween Kimbcrley and Mafekin-', and four days later, after some smart fighting and splendid marching, ef fected a junction with Colonel Plu mer-who, with 800 men from ltho desiu, was advancing from the north -at Jan , Maribi's, twenty miles west of Mafoking. The combined forces sighted Mttfe king at eleven - o'clock on the morn ing of May 1(5, and a sharp battle i ommenced witli Commandant Snv nmn, who fought bravely till six o'clock, when the White House and trenches were carried at the point of the bayonet, and the Boers were on the run, being assisted by Baden Powell's gunners, who dropped one or two shells into the commandoes. At seven o'clock the relief force...
Federal Elections. POLLING TOMORROW. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 4 September 1914
Federal Elections. POLLING TOMORROW. The public interest in the war now proceeding iu Europe is so great that there is a tendency to overlook the Federal elections which take place to morrow, It is the duty of all electors-men and women alike-even at the cost of personal inconvenience, to register their votes without fail. Provision is made for electors who may be absent from their own sub division on polling day to record their votes at polling booths on making a declaration before the oOker-iu-charge of the booth a&lt;> follows : " I have not been and shall not be to-day within the sub-division for which I am enrolled, uti'ler conditions which would permit of my voting at a polling place prescribed for the sub division." The candidates are : - TLIE GRAMPIANS. (One to be elected.) IRVINE, Hans W II (Liberal) JOLLb-Y, Edward F G (Labor). THE SENATE . (Six.10 be e'ected.) Liberal.

THE FIRST CONVICTS OF BOTANY BAY. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 4 September 1914
THE FIRST COXVTCTS OF BOTANY BAY. When Captain Fhilipp sailed for Botany Day with a batch of con victs, on May ltt, 1787, probably neither skipper, crew, nor prisoners imagined that they were making his tory. Vet the little fleet, with its 564 male ami 192 female convicts (besides soldiers, sailors, ml offi cials), was practically the founda tion of our great Commonwealth. Considering the comparatively slight crimes for which transportation was inflicted in the "good old times/' and the merciless nature of the "jus tice" dealt out to the lower classes for slight deviations from the path of virtue, it is quite possible that Captain Philipp's gaolbirds and their warders contained an appreciable proportion of what is needed to build up a new colony. The success of the experiment is its best excuse, though no one who has studied the black side of the trans portation system would desire to see it renewed in its entirety. The allotment of prisoners as "servants" (practically as slaves) to...

GLORIOUS WAR! [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 4 September 1914
GLORIOUS WAR I Gabriel Suchot, who gained his baton and dukedom in Spain, was the only prominent French corps commandcr to emerge from that grim, inglorious warfare with repu tation enhanced. All Napoleon's other genaralfl impaired their credit, and even Suchet smirched his name, on which the storm of L»©rida, in Western Catalonia, May 13, 1810, left a mark not to be whitewashed over by admirers. The city fell, after a brief siege, but Suchet, wanting the citadel also, gained it by methods simple, effec tive, but brutal, perhaps the great est atrocity perpetrated by any combatant throughout the war. They consisted in sending detach ments through the streets with or ders to thrust the population, along with the wreck of the garrison, into the ditch and over the drawbridge into the citadel. Tressed on by the French, they filled the castle yard before the governor could exclude' them. Then, the castle being cram med with 15,000 men, women, and children, Suchet bombarded it with every a...

PEN PICTURES OF THE PAST. 1 TIIE rARISIAN PITMAN. While Sir Isaac Fitman died rich and honoured, tho inventor of tho most popular French short* hand system passed away re cently in comparative obscurity. . j\bbo ISinlta JJupIoye was a young priest who formed a sudden And inoxplt'cabJo tnsio for stenography (which, of course, forms no part oC tho curriculum necessary to qualify f for Holy Orders, Catholic or Tro-' testAnt). Ho studied the existing I systems profoundly, saw their im perfection s, and docided to improve them. He quitted hi« ecclesiastical duties, and, workincr in collaboration with his brother, invented tho Ouployan system. But to invent is only the first step. The nbbe's notablo feat was to popularise His system. He founded at Vtiris tho "Stenographic Institute of the Two Hemispheres." Ho published journals, founded li braries, formed classes, and deliver ed lecturcs. His* energy was croon ed by succcss. Canon Thiployc died at St. Maur des Fosses, near Paris, on May i...
THE FARM SEPARATOR. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 4 September 1914
THE FARM SEPARATOR. The farm separator has come to stay, consequently the conditions un- : der which the machine does its clean est work should be understood. Even temperature and even speed, are imperative if we would do the best work. Separators should be checkcd occasionally in their work so as to guard against a loss of fat. Formerly an average loss of .12 to .35 iat left in skim-milk was consid ered fairly good. At the present tim"> a loss of over .5 is thought bad. It pays to watch closely, the separator. It must be borne in mind th-it a slight loss in skimming reaches a prodigious amount in the course of a year. There is no machine used, on the farm as much as the hand separator; hence, the importance of securing a good one and keeping it in the best of order. i Separate the cream from the milk at a consistency producing approxi mately about ten gallons of creom from every hundred gallons of mil*. Cool the cream immediately after the separation. Tanks of cold water are ord...
