An Unexpected Order. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 1 August 1914

An Unexpected Or.der. The most interesting experience I ever had during a long time on the road occurred some years ago in Scot land, Bays a traveller. One day during the Highland Show, where we were exhibiting engines, a very unkempt-looking individual hung 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 he was a man who had an Idea he would like to have It for his own, but before deciding he said he would first have to ask his mother.

A Proud Confession. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 1 August 1914

A Proud Confession. The other day a young lady boarded a tramcar with a very small baby. By and by the conductor came around to collect the fares, and the lady tendered him a half-crown. The conductor looked at her and said, "Is that your smallest?" The lady blushed and said: "Yes, sir; I've only been married a year." So long as health and strength re main, a good dinner and a pretty wo man are the two things a man tires of the least.

WHEN WALKING IS HARD WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 1 August 1914

WHEN 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 muscle 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 ilniBh of the march he has to pitch camp, draw water, collect fuel, clean rifles, etc., n...

The Cat Still Lives. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 1 August 1914

The Cat Still Lives. If there was one thing he hated more than another it: was a cat.' The cat. he- particularly detested was his landlady's.- The reputatiomof that cat^was very bad. It had been blamed- by his landlady,- who ought to know its peculiarities, for stealing sugar, from Mb cupboard," stamps from MS": blotting-pad; . and even tobacco from tho"jar tuat stood upon his man telpiece, ? He did not love that cat at any time, but on' this particular evening, as he mndresBed to go to bed, he liked it less than ever. He had never given the cat any encouragementf and he .dtd' not see why it should desire to share'his bed, but apparently the cat had other views, ;for just below the top of the blankets there was a hump that told him much. ... He was a man of : quick decision, 'He went over to. his dressing table and lifted one of the heavy iron dumb bells iwith which he recovered his .circulation after his cold tub in the morning; He lifted the weapon on high ilnd flung it with all h...

WIT OF THE ANCIENT GREEKS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 1 August 1914

WIT OF THE ANCIENT GREEKS. Cleomenes, when asked what was the duty of a king, replied, "To do good to your friends, but harm to your enemies." Hearing this, the philoso pher Aristo asked "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 he will go about and abuse me where there are more to listen to him." Dionysus the Tyrant, to put a slight upon Plato, gave him the lowest seat at his table. "I daresay," he Baid, "when Plato goes back to Athens he will have plen ty to Bay against us." "Sir," said Plato, "I hope I may never be so at a loss for. subjects of conversation as to have to talk about you!" Aristlppus 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 lime Doys for his singing. When told of it he said, "We must sing bet...

CHAPTER V. A Second Miniature. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 1 August 1914

CHAPTER V. A Second Miniature. Gllray 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 speak 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 muoh 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 Mm to-day and would be gone to-mor row. There were liundredB of such, each regarding his or her own parti cular case as being of the first im portance. And yet Gllray was an noyed because for the moment he could not place the name. He took off the receiver and made the usual signal that he was there. "Is that Doctor Everard Gilray?" a voice asked. "Oh, yes, I am Mr. Geoffrey Herepath speaking.

THE SENTENCE OF ? THE COURT. By FRED M. WHITE. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., London and Melb. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER IV. Gilray shrugged his slioulders al most indifferently. He was getting accustomed to these dramatic epi sodes. Besides, lie 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 sotting, 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 Hire 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 clnssical example of miserliness, he wore a kind of dressing-gown of vel vet, and on ...

SLEEP—ITS VALUE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 1 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 no ironclad rule governing the amount of food required, neith...

CHAPTER VI. Madame Ninon Desterre. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 1 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 ber 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 the 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 wealt...
