BETTER THAN WISHING. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 14 January 1915

BETTER THAN WISHING. Do you wish the world were better? Let me tell you what to do: Set a watch upon your actions, keep them always straight and true; Rid your mind o£ selfish motives, let your thoughts he clean and high, You can make a little Eden of the sphere you occupy. Do you wish the world were wiser? Well, suppose you make a start By accumulating wisdom in the scrap book of your heart. £)o not waste one page on folly; live to. learn and learn to live. If you want to give men knowledge you must get it ere you give. Do you wish the world were happy? Then remember day by day Just to scatter seeds of kindness as you pass along the way; For the pleasure of the many may be ofttimes traced to one, As the hand that plants the acorn shelters armies from the sun.

ANIMALS WHO FIGHT WITH SOLDIERS. What Military Pets Have Done. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 14 January 1915

ANIMALS WHO FIGHT WITH SOLDIERS. What Military Pets Have Done. The news that the pet' goat of the l 2nd Battalion of the Welsh Regiment has been killed in the Battle of Aisne reveals the fact that the soldiers are taking their regimental mascots to the front. This is a common practice in war, as each regiment regards its ! pet as a luck-bringer, and thus it is only natural that the animal should accompa'ny the soldiers to battle. Re gimental pets on many occasions have distinguished themselves on the battlefield. In one instance a regi mental dog proved to be one of the few survivors of a terrible British dis aster when the famous 66th were cut up in the Battle of Maiwand. Valiant Bob, 'the pet'of the regiment, sat and howled dismally in the centre of the rapidly dwindling square where the •Britishers stood back to back, fighting against hordes of Afghans. When every man had fallen, Bob crawled over the bodies of the dead, and, al though wounded in the leg, travelled over ninety mil...

CHAPTER XXI. Dick's Return. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 14 January 1915

CHAPTER XXI. Dick's Return. At last the decision was made, and Sydney sat down to write her an swer to-Robert, and the answer was "Yes." It had taken her three days to make up her mind. Twenty times during those three days she had deci ded it«was impossible, and twenty times she. had reconsidered the im possibility. What had given the fin ishing point to- the 'decision was a visit to'Maggie. The children had a holiday, and were both at home, and the sight of the feappyeontentment of Maggie in her home, surrounded by ihusband and children, had brought home to Sydney for the hundredth time her own lonely and isolated" life. She was now verging on thirty; there were silver threads in the beau tiful ihair, and she grew tired more easily than she did a few years ago. Sydney had always had a faculty for looking forward, and seeing clearly— too clearly for her own comfort—in to the future. She saw herself middle aged, old maidish, solitary, left- be hind, 'first with no one and no one' fir...

CHAPTER XX. Robert Has Hope. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 14 January 1915

CHAPTER XX. Robert Has Hope. A few afternoons later Robert call ed in for a cup of tea. "Has Mrs. Burnand been here?" he asked. "I met her a few yards down the street." "Yes; she is feeling a little low, and was good enough to say she thought I should cheer her up. You ' know Alec has gone abroad." "I knew he was going. Has he gone for long?" "For a year at least. He is goipg to make sketches ol some of the South African battlefields." "What a weird subject for a: man like Alec Burnand of all people in the /world. Of course they'll be no earthly good!" "I'm not so sure," said Sydney. "He has been, improving immensely In grip and power lately, in my opin ion. That's his—he brought it to me when he came to say good-bye yester day. She • pointed to a little finished sketch of one of her favorite corners of the park, and the trees seemed to be swaying in the summer breeze and the very grass to be alive and springing. "Yes, that's better than anything I've seen of his. You'll .be sorry t...

CHAPTER XIX. A Trusty Lover. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 14 January 1915

CHAPTER XIX. A Trusty Lover. After Dick had passed out of her life on that October afternoon, Syd ney at first seemed to'live in a dull grey monotony. Feeling for a time was dulled and passive. She got up, went through the day, and went to bed again like an automaton. But this unnatural state of course passed with time, and she set herself to build, up her life anew. For Dick's sake she must rouse herself and make the most of what was left of her life. The woman he had loved—she forced her self to put it that way, not the wo man he loved—must not be behind him in resolutely turning her back on a closed chapter and setting her faco to the present. The future she would not think of. The vista of endless years, alone, growing older and duller and more solitary, was not one to face, so she rigorously forced herself to shut it out. Robert had no need now to com plain of her lack of "doing." She threw herself heart and soul into her work at the Crofton School, giving up three or four even...

The roads, I was always, under the imp res sion, were dedicated by the Crown for the use of the travelling public, not for the shire councils to make agistment runs of them. There is no need for me to go into details in regard to the damage they do, asjcoun'cillors know as well as I do./ I have been pestered for years and I may state that if the coun cil does not take steps to do away with the nuisance I-will invoke the aid of the C.R.B , the Public Works Depart ment, and that of the Crown Solicitor. I don't think they will allow works cost ing thousands of pounds of public .money to be destroyed by the agist ment of stock belonging to a few grass thieves.—Registration ...

Cricket. The Mirboo District Association matches commenced on Saturday. Mir boo met Tarwin Valley on the latter s i ground, when a most exciting and en joyable game took place, Tarwin even tually winning by 3 runs. Mirboo North made 32 only in their innings, nearly all their batsmen showing poor form. Marshall proved the exception, he making 17 by very fine cricket, some of his strokes being really first-class. Green was the only other batsman who looked like .making a score. Tarwin put up an equally poor performance, as when their last man went in 3 runs were wanted to win. Clanchy settled the match by hitting two twoers off M'Kay's last balls. Marshall wound up the innings with his next ball. Lucas won the match by slogging up 12 in a few minutes. Cain bowled exceedingly well for Tarwin, getting 6 for 10. The respective captains were Green and J. Peart. Scores :— Mirboo North T. Verdon, c Cain, b Lucas ... o W. Pickering, b Lucas ... ... o E.

LAND OF DIAMONDS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 14 January 1915

LAND OF DIAMONDS. Luederitz Bay, in German South west Africa, over which the Union Jack now flies, is a German posses sion that was well worth securing. It is situated some 200 miles north of the Orange River, and is one of the principal ports of the German terri tory. Luederitz Bay is practically the only German dependency in Africa suited to white colonisation. A dis covery of diamonds in the Luederitz Bay district in.July, 1908, caused a rush of treasure-seekers. The stones, which resemble the Brazilian variety, are found mostly near the surface of the sandy soil, and are mainly of snlall size. The total yield up to the end of the year was over 39,000 car ats, and during 1909 various compan ies were formed to exploit the dia mondiferous area, the development of I which was hampered by the great scarcity of fresh water. r The output of diamonds for the year 1909 was valued at over £1,000,000, and anticipations of the growth of production have not been realised; but in 1912 the tot...

A STORY OF KING ALFONSO. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 14 January 1915

A STORY OF KING ALFONSO. An under-secretary of the Spanish legation told at a dinner party in Washington a little story about the King of Spain. King .Alfonso (he began) is fond of taking motoring trips incog. He put up "with his modest entourage at a more than modest inn. "I am sure," he said, "that they won't know me here!" Well, they did not know him. They treated him like an ordinary travel ler. So much so, in fact, that when he went to shave the next morning, he found there was no mirror in his room. So he went down into the inn yard in his shirt-sleeves, and there a pretty chambermaid brought him a broken piece of mirror, which he set up beside the wall, and proceeded to lather his cheeks and chin. The girl stood chatting with him. Finally she said in an odd voice: "You are not just an ordinary tra veller, are you?" "Why do you ask me that?" asked the King. "I don't know," said the maid; "bilt there's something about you—per haps you belong to the royal court in Madrid?" "Yes,...
