TENNIS. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 20 February 1915

TENNIS. Tennis, the most beautiful of all ball games (a writer in the "National Review" declares) keeps on the even tenor of its way, largely unnoticed. Its band of devotees is yearly in creasing in numbers, but it is quite certain that they will never grow to any very great extent, nor will they decrease materially. Werd there no public competition at the game -at all, its inherent quali ties, the delight of learning to play it properly, an<i the ample reward of the* long apprenticeship required, would, make it endure ; but it is equally certain that even if the num ber of open competitions were added to, which is not likely, to happen, the game would never become popular in the sense of being a gamer for the many. The conditions in which it is plaj ed, the time required to achieve any degree of proficiency, and the com parative scarcity of courts, make this impossible. "This," remarked Mr. Came, "is my photograph with my two French poodles. You recognise me, eh ?" "I th...

SHE GREASD THE COAL CHUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 20 February 1915

SHE GREASD THE COAL CHUTE. A lady was continually accusing her servant of extravagance ' without lany real cause. The servant always bore this accusation patiently. • One day the servant informed her mistress that the coal has all been consumed. This was followed by the usual remarks on the part of the mistress, who finished up by saying : "You evidently eat them." The next day the candles were all gX>ne. "Candles gone !". said the mistress. "Why, I bought half a pound only a fortnight ago." "Oh, well," rejoined the servant, who could stand thi6 sort of thing no longer, "I can tell you where the candles have gone. I ate them to grease my throat so that I could swallow the coal more conveniently."

THE FARM. THE FARMER AND HIS WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 20 February 1915

THE FARM. — -J, the farmer and his work. There is an old adage that "H< who causes . two blades of grass tc grow- where one grew before, is a public benefactor." If that is true, what shall be said of the man who drains the pestilent swamp, turning ite sour clods up to the air and sun shine, causing them to grow grain 1 What shall be- said of the man who removes the Btones from a rocky hill side until at last he has a hillside ol growing corn ? Are not such meD benefactors in the highest sense ? Oftentimes' the farmer is a subject for ridicule. He is represented as lean and lank, with a few straggling hairs on his chin, pantaloons supported by one suspender and wisp of hay in his hair. This is hardly a true picture of the modern farmer. A typical farmer may have hands showing signs of hard labour, but he has a well-fitting suit of goos clothes, good shoes, hat and overcoat and a pocketbook with money in it. ^ A farmer is usually handicapped by his isolation. He is far fro...

CHAPTER XIII. SMILEY'S DISMISSAL AND WHAT CAME OF IT—A MEETING BETWEEN TWO VILLAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 20 February 1915

CHAPTER XIII. SMILEY'S DISMISSAL AND WHAT CAME OF IT—A MEETING BE TWEEN TWO VILLAINS. Smiley, poor Smiley, had lost his place, once head gardener at Hedge lawn, the caretaker ; Smiley who had played the spy on. Malcolm • Dorsey, and had known the difference between a coming and a going master, had been ignominiously discharged by the master who came. The reason of it he never knew. Custom at Hedgelawn had always been simple. There had. never been, in the time of the Dorseys, any attempt at (grandeur in the establishment. They aped no county folk. They lived as suited them, simply, without os tentation, but well. Smiley had grown into these ways, and he was too old to grow out of them. Per haps,then, Mrs. Leviticus Isaacs, who had her own exalted ideas as to how I a big house should be managed, had no further use for the plodding Smi ley. Be that as it may, in a very short time after the -advent of the Isaacs family, Smiley, was paid a month in advance and sent adrift. What to do now...

PART 7. CHAPTER XII. THE PECULIARITIES OF MR. . BURKE, CONTINUED—HIS PLANS AND THE MISFORTUNES THAT UPSET THEM. Mr.- Burke, on his arrival at ' his 1 house in the Rue d'Arly, found no one awake to receive him. Sor with that contented mind that had been! his since he had met Dorsey, he went' to bed and to sleep. I On the- following morning, however,' his loving and ambitious wife wasj eager to hear all that had been done on the day previous. "Well, she said, as they sat at the breakfast table, "did you see that Mr, Dorsey ?" "I saw the gentleman," replied Mr. Richard Baytridge. "He is a fine fel low—a very fine fellow—for me." "For you ? Why for you ? Oh, I suppose he greeted jou warmly, and . met you more than half way, and even acknowledged that you were the proper owner of our share of the treasure, even if your name is "Bay fcrifdge instead of Burke."

WITNESS GOES TO ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 20 February 1915

WITNESS GOES TO ENGLAND. An application for an adjourn ment of a case, in which William Francis Wookey claimed £99 damages from Ilughie McCallum, manager of Russell's Carngham Station, evoked some interesting comments in the Ballarat County Court on Monday, 6th inst. Mr Lazarus, who appeared for the plaintiff, said that Mrs Russell, the principal witness, had made ;irrangements to go to England to see her son, before she was served with a subpoena ; and it was impossible to put off the trip. He therefore asked for an ad journment, until her return. Plaintiff, after having been four years on the station, had been dismissed on account of defen dant's statementstoMrs Russell, and wished to vindicate his character. Mr Coldham objected to the application, and stated that Mrs Russell had taken her passage on Decflmber 1. Her eldest son went in August to enlist in the, British Army. Another son was j hi training with Kitchener's men, and a third was at the front. He did not think any subpo...

As there are 29 days 12 hours 44 minutes sad 27 seconds between full moon and full moon, it is a very rare occurrence for even that month to pass without its full moon. This year there -was a full moon at 2.11 p.m. on 3lst January, and the regu larity of the lunar time-table, makes it-, inevitable that the nest full moon cannot arrive helore '4.33 a.m. on 2nd Marc'n.
