HOAXING THE SENATORS. The Story of a Practical Joke. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 19 August 1914

HOAXING THE SENATOR*. The Story of a Practical Joke. | An amusing practical joke has just been played upon French members of ! Parliament by a Parisian journalist. Every Deputy or Senator is glad of j an opportunity to bring his name be | fore the notice of his constituents, and no method is siirfpler than that of subscribing for the erection of a sta tue to some dead and gone French ce lebrity who is in danger of being for gotten. Knowing this, says the "Times " cor respondent, a clever newspaper man invented a fictitious personage named Hegesippe Simon. Then he ^erit a printed circular to over a hundred De puties, inviting them to become hon orary members of the committee which was being organised to celebrate the centenary of the illustrious Hege sippe. For the benefit of those who might have forgotten this literary giant, he added a quotation from his, works, "When the sun arises, the darkness vanishes away." The Deputies, who were unwilling to admit ignorance of the great man o...

MAKING THE MOST OF ONE'S TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 19 August 1914

MAKING THE MOST OF ONE'S TIME. When a well-known writer was onco asked how he found time In the midst of all his public "work to think out and compose so many book? he explained that he contrived to do so much by never doing too much, at a time, and during the time he was writing he gave his whole attention to what he was doing. This is one of the secrets of mak ing either work or study easy and ac complishing the best results. One of the greatest educators of the day says: When you have a lesson to learn, put your whole thought and attention on it and learn it as quick ly as you can. Do not dilly-dally over it or waste any time, but learn to make the most of every moment o? your study time and leurn quickly. Much time may he saved in this way, and the knowledge that one may learn in a few minutes what, he former ly had been spending an hour upon is as valuable a lesson as any other he could learn. The same theory holds good with work, 'for the quicker it is turned off, and at the s...

CHAPTER VIII. The High Road of Adventure. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 19 August 1914

CHAPTER VIII. The High Road of Adventure. Here at last it appeared to Gllray was fortune holding out both hands to him. . He had formed a compact with Enid, showing that she was more or less under an obligation to him. It wculd have been a difficult matter to state precisely what that obligation was, but no doubt time would help him to give it some satisfactory de finition. Anyway, Enid had been desperately afraid lest he should speak, lest he should Bay something thf.t might put Van der Knoot on the track of his missing miniatures. Gil ray had certainly seen the precious pictures in the hands of Daniel Har ley. Whether thev had been stolen or not it did not in the least matte? ^-perhaps there was some strange "Btory atached to their appearance In the queer dock-house, some plausible explanation. Even the blackest evi dence sometimes becomes common place when the witnesses for the de fence enter, the witness-box. What did it matter? Suppose Dan iel Harley was a thief, what then? At ...

THE WONDERS OF OIL. Some Remarkable Facts about Petroleum. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 19 August 1914

THE WONDERS OF OIL. Some Remarkable Facts about Petroleum. . Mr. Winston Churchill has predicted that before very long coal as fuel for John Bull's naval vessels will be en tirely abolished and oil will be used In Its place. He predicted, too, the day when Britain would own and pro duce her own supply of oil fuel, there being oil-beds in Lincolnshire, Dorset, and Scotland alone capable of yielding no less than four or five thousand tons a year. It is interesting to note that at the present time Britain's Navy possesses one hundred and fifty vessels built and building which will use only oil. The greater part of the oil now con sumed by the Navy comeB from Rou mania and the United States, and the Admiralty have a small fleet of tank steamers engaged in bringing it to England. There is no doubt that in a few years oil fuel will perform at least half of the work now done by coal, and, fol lowing the example of America, Brit ish railways will adopt the oil-driven locomotive. The supply ...

CHAPTER VII. A Compact. Gllray pressed a litle closer to the two women, ho was anxious to hear what was passing between them. He was doing now what hie would have Bcorned to do a year or so ago. Hia debts and his desperate troubles were sapping the moral fibre of the man. Ho was so nervously eager to get to the bottom of this mystery that his gen tlemanly instincts were crushed out. Apparently he stood raptly contem plating one of the pictures on the wall. Ever and again words came to him, but he could make very little of them! Then he started. Ninon Desterre was talking. Just for a moment she seemed to forget herself for her voice was raised eager ly. "Your esteemed father will never have enough," she explained. "It is a growing disease, this money-making.

BIRD DIVORCES. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 19 August 1914

BIRD DIVORCES. Generally speaking, the social life of birds is of the happiest description. Their courtship and marriage is one long love eong, and it often happens, as one famous naturalist lias put it, that while some young human couple are pouring out their hearts to each other beneath the leaves of an apple tree some feathered Romeo is making ardent love to his coy, coquettish Juli et in the branches above. That clever student of bird life, Mrs. Olive Thorn Miller, maintains that birds have a distinct social life of their own, which is full of interest to the careful observer. The most important feature of their life is that bird mar riages are permanent, Implying con stancy In their affections, of which proof may be found everywhere. Parrots are notably devoted birds, and are willing to make great sacri flees for their mates. She instances a case where one of a caged pair had managed to make her escape Into th» open air. The owner of the birds, hav ing observed the attachment b...

MADE THE KING LAUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 19 August 1914

! MADE THE KING LAUGH. i A King of Prussia who reigned about the beginning of last century was not ed for his geniality, and often in the course of his walks he would enter into conversation with his subjects. One day he met a young man and asked him what his faith was. The youth, who was somewhat of a wag, answered, smiling, "I believe what my tailor believes." The king entered pleasantly Into the joke and then ask ed again, "And what does your tailor believe in?" "Your Majesty," replied the young man, "he believes that he will never get the thirty shillings that I owe him, and I believe it alBo." The King laughed heartily at the outspoken and unrestrained way in which he had answered him, and then gave him thirty shillings. "Now, then, you can pay your tailor and so change his faith." The young man fancied, however, that he could use the money for a better purpose," and the tailor naturally went unpaid. Not long afterwards the King met the same youth who, as he saw I-Iis Majesty a...

Preparing. An old woman in Sussex was severe ly reproved by the parson, for curtsy ing whenever the name of Satan was mentioned. Asked why Bhe did so, she replied: "Well, civility costs nothing, and you never know what'll happen." "What do you want?" demanded Mr. Newly wed, as he confronted the tramp at the door of his little week-end cot tage down in the country. "Breakfast or work?" "Both, sir," replied the tramp.

PHYSICAL ENERGY. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 19 August 1914

PHYSICAL ENERGY. Perhaps you do not know It, but when you walk a distance of ten miles you expend enough force, could it all be collected, to raise 800 tons one foot from the ground. Of this enormous quantity of energy, the legs are re sponsible for .150 tons, the heart for 100, the lungs for twenty-two, and the bulk of the remainder is wasted in the heat given off from the body. In severe athletic competitions, such as running, rowing, and boxing, you must be in such a condition as to be able to exert, by your limbs alone, each minute, as much force as would lift 5,0001b.' one foot above the ground. When a powerful man works fo* 24 hours with all his might, the ener gy he expends is equal to lifting a third-class cruiser, and during his life he dissipates enough, power to carry his body at death to the sun. These statements may at first sight seem ex traordinary, but will not seem so when it is remembered that two ounces of bread contains the potential energy of 150 tons.

J Marriage in "Death House." SHORTLY BEFORE EXECUTION. Only a few hours before meeting, j his death in the electric chair, Ra i fael Longo, an Italian, was married in the "death house" at the penitenti ary at Trenton, New Jersey. He had lived with his bride for some years,, and both had always believed them selves to be married; but it was dis covered at the last moment by the priest who attended the condemned man that their union was not legal according to the laws of the State of New Jersey. In order that his wife might inherit such property as Longo left, the marriage ceremony was de cided upon, and the couple, with the bars between them, joined hands while the priest read the marriage service over them, and pronounced them man and wife. The "death house" is the chamber upon which the condemned cells open, and which leads immedi ately to the room containing the elec tric chair. Here the couple plighted their vows in the presence of their three children and oi' the chief warder an...

A Globe Trotter. A University professor who has greatly endeared himself to his stu dents on account of his goodhearted ness, has one particular failure-ab sent-mindedness. Lately he visited his married nephew, and, of course* had to listen to the young wife's praise of her firstborn. The gentleman felt that he must say something to give the impression that he was Interested. "Can the dear little fellow walk?" he inquired, quietly. 'Walk!" said the mother. "Why, he has been walking for five months!" "Dear me!" exclaimed the professor, lapsing again into abstraction, "what a long way he must have got."

THE FOE OF GERMS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 19 August 1914

I THE FOE OF GERMS. While it has long been known that tobacco smoke is a valuable preventive against infection (luring thtf epidemic of a contagious disease, it is only re cently that an analysis of smoke-laden air in an East-end district has been contrasted with equally dense air in which tobacco fumes were lacking. These analyses have shown that morfl than one half of the harmful germs had been destroyed by the tobacco Bmoke. This fact has unconscious1.^ been the means of preventing large loss of life, as was noted in the recent cholera epidemic in Germany, when workers in cigar factories were found to be immune to cholera, and wherein the victims were mainly from the non smokers of the city. Experiments conducted in a cholera stricken house, one floor of which was occupied with a cigar factory, led Pro fessor Wencke, of the Imperial Insti tute of Berlin, to the conclusion that the cholera germs cannot endure to bacco smoke. It was found that saliva containing virulent germs wns c...

In his hand was a towel, and his face was very red; but it was not al together to be attributed to the energy occasioned by violent rubbing. "Going on shore, Bob?" he inquired, in a voice which he fondly imagined "was gentle and seductive, but which "was really something like a full-sized tmegaphone. "Can't you see 1 am, fathead!" geni ally retorted Bob Russell, as he jump ed deftly from the deck on to the wharf. "I want to speak to you a minute, :BoV insisted the first mate, mildly. "Fire away, then. I can hear you. So can all Easthaven, for the matter o' that," said Bob, as he stood on the wharf. "I should have that voice o' yours filed, if I was you." "Never mind about my voice, Bob," retorted the first mate, just in time averting an apoplectic seizure engen dered by Bob's insolence. "I want you to do me a favor." "Thought as much,"...
