The Miner's Rat. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 7 August 1914

The Miner's Rat, ? During a recent inquiry into an accident, on one of the Hand mines, an old miner giving evidence was asked : "Von refused to work at this place ; why ? l>id you notice any thing wrong?" He replied: "No, sir, but I knew the ground must ho had ; the rats were all leaving it. ' c*ot o-ii i. J V.V1V.V"' lor.s' belief that "rats des««rt a sink ing ship" is just as strongly hold by old miners. Spoken to a few days ago, one miner said : " All old miners know that rats will never Biny whero there is caving ground. Old miners will always tell you that-, whether they come from England, Australia, or America. When an old miner notices that the rats are ijoing, he always tries to find out what is wrong. Ti he can't, he generally has enough sense to get. out himself." IJnts are to be found in very largo numbers in all old workings on the Jieef; their forbears probably w'ent below originally in boxes of [candles or other stores. Miners never kill these rats, nor interfere wi...

NAVAL PRIZE-MONEY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 7 August 1914

NAVAL PRlZE-RflONEY. Dating bnC't to tho earliest years of Britain's supremacy at sea, the custom of allowing naval prize money-which it is proposed shall now b3 abolished-recalls some in teresting; facts about tho clays whon I ri o money was a gro.it induce ment to recruiting for tho Fleet. "Jack Tnr" has shared in little prizo money since tho days of Nel son, except when lie has boon en gaged in tho capture of slavers on (ho east and west coasts oi Africa. In the days when wo sailed tho Spanish Main, however, considerable fortunes were secured in the wny of loot by ofHccrs and men. Tho biggest haul of prize money on record, having regard to tho indi \idual shares, occurred in 17(51, when tho British frigates Actacou and , Favourite captured a Spanish galleon. On dividing »p tho loot the shares worked out as follows : Captains, £65,000 ; lieutenants, £1.1,000 ; warrant officers, £-1,3315; petty officers, £1,800 ; and seamen and marines, £4S5.

An Easily-made Washstand Substitute. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 7 August 1914

An Easily-made Wash stand Substitute. Our first illustration gives an adequate idea of a contrivance which may take the place of a woshstand, when it is not expedient for various reasons to fit a room with this article of furniture. As tho sketch shows, it consists of a shell* with a, rounder) front fixed into a corner at a suitable height from tho floor. Two pieces of hoard nailed above it form a backing, partly to add to the ap pearance of the fitment, partly to prevent splashing- of the wall. I>rap cry may be added as a frill. The shelf may bo enamelled or be covered with oilcloth or other ma terial. As tho fitment has to hold a heavy weight it must h« strong. It is, therefore, necessary that its attachment to the walls should be rather more secure than Jiails dri ven into the plaster alone can bring about. f-'ortunnlely it is not diffi cult to gain this md. The supports of the she!/ may be produced first. Two are required, one 3 ft. »>in. long, 2in. wide, and ?in. thick, a...

The Pope's Sisters. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 7 August 1914

The Pope's Sisters. It is now more than a year since tho death of tlio eldest sister of Pope Pius X., who, with her two younger slaters and their nlcce, Ciilda Carolin, lived in a humble apartment in tho Piazza Uusticucci, close to the vast mass of the Vatican Palace. Tlie sisters of the Tops are char acteristic and interesting figures, who, notwithstanding tho exalted position of their brother, remain in the Eternal City as simple nnd un pretending as in their early days j at Rieso. Liko most women of j their class, they never wear hats j out of doors, and when they go to I church drape a piece of blaek laco ! over their heads in Venetian fashion. | Unable to read or writo at all [ fluently, like many of their type in Italy, they aro extremely shrewd and full of good common sense, and fire most notable housewives, whose only regret is that since their illustrious brother has been installed in the Vatican they can no longer see after his creature com forts as they did through all th...

Different Walks. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 7 August 1914

Different Walks. & Country people and the dwellers in cities have different walks accord ing to Dr. Felix Kegnault. The city man uses short step?, holds his body erect, keeps his legs straight, and strikes the pavement sharply villi his heels before put ting down the rest of his foot. The country man takes a longer stride he leans forward keeping his knees i bent, slides >is foot over the ground and leans his weight upon the whole sole at, once. ; Kach method of walking has its i own merit. The country man's method enables him to get over greater distances without fatigue if the road is fairly even. If, however, it is rough or broken he at once and instinctively adopts the mode of the city man. "What have you being doing for i the last hour "Oh, just admir ing the scenery." "What were you looking at?" "A mirror."

The following quota tion front "Karey 011 the Steam Kngine," published in 1S-7, will be welcomed by many "The machinery in the great brew eries and distilleries in I.ondon was then moved by the strength oi horses, and the proprietors of these establishments, who were first to require Mr. Watt's engines, always inquired what number of horses an intended engine would be equal to.

WITTY CHURCHMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 7 August 1914

WITTY CHURCHMEN. + A study of the wits of the world repeals the fact that there is a fair I proportion of clergvmen nmon£ j tlv m, and a very good illustration i of the powers of repartee by an in | rident which happened when Bishop Boyd Carpenter was addressing aj) open-air meeting. .An atheist asked the Bishop if ho believed that Jonah was swallowed by the whale. "When 1 go to hea \ en I wiJJ ask Jonah," said his lordship. " But supposing." the other persisted, "lie is not there." "Then yon will have to ask him," was the quick retort. At a farewell dinner to Pert P. John Grejzg, just made Bishop of Cork, n hoRle of rich old Water loo port, instead of making a rapid circuit, rested before iho guest of the evening.

An Awful Ornament. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 7 August 1914

Awful Ornament. It is a curious study to nolo the variety of feminine ornamenta tion in the different nations, and how what may be considered as a beautifier by one race becomes a positive monstrosity and deform ity in the ryes of another. One of the most curious decora tions in the world is adopted by the women of the Mnnganja tribe, inhabiting a country in Africa near one of tho northern tribu taries of the Zambesi. It is called the "pclele." This is a ring, but it. is fixed nei ther in the ear nor the nose, as with other races, but in the upper lip. It is i\ ring made of ivory, ! metal, or bamboo, according to ! the wealth of the wearer, is nearly an inch in thickness, and varies in diameter at the will of the wearer, 1 many being nearly three inches in : diameter from outer edge to edge. When the girls arc very young they have the lip pierced with two holes close to the nose, and a small wooden peg inserted to keep tho- wound from closing. When the wound heals two small holes ar...

CHAPTER XV. TAKEN IN. "What's this .about Pat marrying Fitzpatrick ?" said Lord Ossington, throwing himself into a chair in the morning room at the Hail, two or three mornings after the latter's en gagement to Pat. That his lordship was put out it was easy to see, as he glanccd from his sister to his niecc. "It's quite true that Pat is engag ed to him," said Mrs. Hctherington, quietly. "My dear, I don't understand. I was told you refused to marry Lau rie because you loved young Carvill, then you engage yourself to the doc tor. I'd like to know what it means, Pat ?" said her uncle, in his usual straightforward manner. "It means that I've changed my mind. It's a woman's privilege," she said, trying to speak brightly. "You're not one of the changeable sort, and I'd like to know if your father has had anything to do with n. nort of notion that rcirln I wasn't keen on you marrying the son of your father's manager ; but | he's a line fellow, and if you love i him, I say take him, and don'...

Mask of Death. f A curious mask* of dentil was de scribed by Captain Nugent before the Royal Goographi.-al Society, when he gave sortie of his exper iences as a member of the Anglo German Commission which marked Die boundaries of Nigeria and the Cameroon*. Among the numerous "ju-jus" found in the descried huts was a grotesque mask, which was appa rently kept to frighten the women. Any women seeing it must, die nt once.
