GOLD AND GLITTER. Story of How a Young Fool Saved from His Folly. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 6 August 1914
GOLD AND GLITTER. Story of How a Young Fool Saved from His Folly. My introduction took place to her ?when she was a . red-laced, unprepos sessing- infant of a few weeks, and I ?was a sufficiently grown man to ima gine that the few hairs that adorned my upper lip constituted a moustache, and that my age and sex entitled me to the admission of a supreme con tempt for babies. 1 remember she screamed for the whole of the five minutes during which she was submited to my inspection, and rendered me more uncomfortable than any member of her sex had ever done before. But it was the last time-for from that day onwards we were the best , of friends-and I only mention the occasion of our first meeting in order to prove that I assuredly had a good claim to thoroughly knowing and un derstanding her, considering that for twenty years of her life I saw her practically every day. I was her godfather-a high honor, I believe-but it carried its responsi bilities, though I never seemed to feel tlieir w...
THE HOUSEHOLD. SELECTED RECIPES. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 6 August 1914
THE HOUSEHOLD. SELECTED RECIPES. Curried Rabbit.-To prepare this, cut the rabbit into pieces convenient for serving, and, after soaking the head and all discolored parts for an hour in strong salt and water, dry and rub over with flour. Heat a thin layer of dripping in a stewpan, and in it lightly brown the rabbit, a few piec es at a time. Empty the pan, in it heat a little butter, and add a medium sized onion in small dice. When the onion is lightly brown sprinkle in a level tablespoonful each of curry-pow der and flour, and add a sour apple in small pieces. Keep the pan covered by the side of the fire, stir occasional ly, and when the curry-powder has been slowly fried for not less than 2 minutes add a breakfastcupful of hot diluted meat extract, stock, or milk. Stir until boiling, add salt to taste, and replace the rabbit. Cover and cook gently for an hour or until the rabbit is tender. At the last add a little lemon juice, and serve boiled rice separately or piled around the rab...
FOR THE FARMER. STOCK-BREEDING IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 6 August 1914
FOR THE FARMER. STOCK-BREEDING IN VICTORIA. Dr. S. S. Cameron, Director of Agri culture in Victoria, in ;in interesting chat the other day with our represen tative, made some remarks on stock breeding, especially on small farms, that may be read with both pleasure and profit. Dr. Cameron said:-"I was recently struck by the high jump in values realised for beef breeds of cattle at the Sydney Royal Agricul tural Show sales. For u year or two back the prices obtained at these sales for Hereford, shorthorn, and other beef-breed cattle have been compara tively low, thus indicating that the Queensland and other back - country buyers have not been operating as they used to do. It has always seemed strange to me that as Queensland is engaged in the business of beef export it does not emulate its great rival, the Argentine, whose stock-breeders an nually import, at very high cost, some of the best pedigree stock that can be produced in Great Britain. For years past the Ar gentine has been a ...
WIT OF THE ANCIENT GREEKS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 6 August 1914
WIT OF THE ANCIENT GREEKS. Cleomenes, when asked what was Uie duty of a king. replied, "To do good to your friends, but harm to your enemies." Hearing this, the philoso pher Aristo ashed "Would it not be still better to make your enemies friends, and so to do good to them also?" Philip of Macedon, being advised by his friends to banish one of his slan derers, replied, "If I do ho will go about, and abuse nic where there are more to listen to him." Dionysus the Tyrant, to put a slight upon I'lato, gave him the lowest seat at his table. "1 daresay," he said, "when Plato goes back lo Athens be will have plen ty to say against us." "Sir," said Plato, "I hope I may never bo so at a loss for subjects of conversation as lo have to talk about you!" Aristippus was once asked why he borrowed money of his friends. "No for my own benefit." he replied, "but to teach them the proper use of wealth." Anaximander was once laughed at by some little boys for his singing. When told of it ho said, "We m...
An Unexpected Order. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 6 August 1914
An Unexpected Order. The most interesting experience I e\er had during a long time on tho roul occurred some years ago in Scot land. says a traveller. One day during the Highland Show, where we were exhibiting engines, a very unkempt-looking individual liung around the stand for some time, and thinking he appeared very interested in a large traction engine, and might possibly be a driver, I approached him for a chat. After a time, however, I found ho was a man who had an idea ho would like to have it for his own. bi t before deciding he said lie would first have to ask his mother.
WHEN WALKING IS HARD WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 6 August 1914
V/HEN WALKING IS HARD WORK. People often express surprise that soldiers on the march cover only ten or twelve miles of ground per day. Even then a good many men fall out through fatigue, some faint, and the whole are completely done up at the end of the day. But the soldier is, nevertheless, a first-rate walker. It is all a matter of foot-tons of energy expended. Take an ordinary laborer, and his day's work will be equal to 300 tons lifted one foot high. An eleven-stone man, walking seventeen miles on the level, does the same amount of muacla work. But mark, if he carries an overcoat weighing 61b., he does 311 foot-tons. Now, the soldier is a regular pack horse, and the kit that he carries av erages about 601b. in weight. So that he does exactly as much work in a twelve-mile march as an ordinary man in his seventeen-mile walk. Besides, the soldier has to "break camp" before starting, and at the finish of the march he has to pitch camp, draw water, collect fuel, clean rifles, etc., n...
CHAPTER VI. Madame Ninon Desterre. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 6 August 1914
CHAPTER VI. Madame Ninon Desterre. Most of the houses in Park Gardens are small, and possess no gardens in the true sense of the word, but Num Der 4 differs from the rest, inasmuch as it stands in its own compact grounds overlooking Regent's Park, and therefore in summer presents an outlook reminiscent of sylvan shades in Uie heart of a peaceful woodland country. At one time the house had belonged to a famous artist, with an income equal to his refined extrava gances, and the whole place had been remodelled according to his designs. At his death the house, with all de corations and furniture complete, had been offered for sale and was prompt ly secured by the present owner, known to her friends as Madame Ninon Desterre. The sale had caus ed some sensation at the time, and certain of the papers had striven to learn something of the history of the fair purchaser. They had little to show as the result of their labors beyond the fact that Ninon Desterre was the young widow of a wealthy ...
CHAPTER V. A Second Miniature. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 6 August 1914
CHAPTER V. A Second Miniature. Gilray nodded and walked as far as the inner consulting-room, where the telephone was placed. He was vaguely asking himself who this Here patli was who wished to spealc to him so urgently. The name was oddly familiar, and yet for the moment he could not recall where he had heard it. It seemed in some way to be directly concerned with the stirring events of the past few hours. But then there had been so much to think about and, in any case, what did it really mat ter? Probably Herepath was no more than a casual patient who would see him to-day and would be gone to-mor row. There were hundreds of such, each regarding his or her own parti cular case as being of the first im portance. And yet Gilray was an noyed because for the moment he could not place the name. i-ie IOOK on tne receiver ana made the usual signal that he was there. "Is that Doctor Everard Gilray?" a voice aslced. "Oh, yes, I am Mr. Geoffrey Herepath speaking. We have met before at one or ...

SLEEP—ITS VALUE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 6 August 1914
SLEEP-ITS VALUE:. Sleep, nature's most potent medi cine! How it brings peace to the troubled, rest to the weary, and roses to the cheeks, if we woo the power to lay aside all cares till the morrow. But sometimes the moment the head reaches the pillow seems to be the signal for each individual worry and care to present itself like an aveng ing angel. These mighty companions seem malicious in their intent. When the hours of the night go hand-in-hand with wakeful care, the dawn may bring fitful slumber, but on the face there is left a weary, worried expression, and dark circles under the eyes that speak more plainly than words. When the system is depleted the physician prescribes a tonic which prevents the further wasting of tis sues, and creates an appetite, which is the foundation of recuperation for the system that needs nourishment, so sleep retores the lost strength, and fill us with vim for future exertions. As there is 110 ironclad rule governing the amount of food required, nei...

THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT. By FRED M. WHITE. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., London and Melb. AH Rights Reserved. "CHAPTER IV. Gilray shrugged Uis shoulders al most indifferently. He was getting accustomed to these dramatic epi sodes. Besides, he had nothing to be afraid of. Let him only get his money and he would not trouble this amazing household again. All the same, there was something exceeding ly striking about this remarkable old man. He might have come straight from a stage setting, so strange was his aspect. He was "Gaspard" and "Shylock" in one-tall and lean, and high of fore head from which the leonine grey hair was tossed carelessly back, he had thin, dark hatchet-like features and eyes that glowed like stars behind his gold-rimmed glasses. His keen, clever face was lined and wrinkled, his skin the color of old parchment. To strengthen the likeness to the classical example of miserliness, he wore a kind of dressing-gown of vel vet, and on his ...

YOUARANG. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 6 August 1914
YOUARANG. The anniversary of the Youarang Methodist Church was celebrated on Sunday last, when services were conducted in the morning by the Rev. Taylor, and in the evening by Mr P. H. Devenish. Large congregations were present at both services, which were of a very bright character. On Tuesday evening an up-to-date tea-meeting took place, and proved very successful. &nbsp; The large number that attended could not all sit down together, consequently they had to be served in relays. After ample justice had been done to the excellent " spread " provided by the ladies of the district, the tables, etc., were removed, and preparations made for the concert, which commenced shortly after 8 o'clock. The church building was only large enough to &nbsp; hold about half of the patrons, and those &nbsp; who were not fortunate enough to secure a seat, were obliged to put up with " standing room " outside. Nevertheless, everybody appeared to thoroughly enjoy the concert, th...
PERSONAL. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 6 August 1914
PERSONAL. The Mayor of Wangaratta (Cr Geo. Maxwell), who has been a member of the borough council for 25 years, has announced his intention not to seek re-election this month. Mr W. H. Tricks (shire secretary) has been prostrated with influenza, and was unable to attend the Shire Council on Monday last. Mr Tobias Kelly, C.E., controlled the conduct of affairs in council routine. Mr Tricks is making good recovery, and hopes to attend to shire duties in a day or two. Mr M. A. Corboy (the esteemed proprietor of our local contemporary) was suddenly stricken by an acute attack of illness whilst in his office on Tuesday last. Mr Tobias Kelly subsequently conveyed the sufferer home by motor car, and Dr Ratz was summoned. Mr. Corboy is still under medical attendance, and the sincere hopes of his numerous friends will reciprocate with us in wishing him a speedy recovery from his painful visitation. The mortal remains of Mr John M'Carty, of Pelluebla, were interred in their last resting- plac...
