Good Fellow. They were almost through with the initiation when some kind of an ex plosion at the store over which the hall was situated blew the building into the middle of the street, and In terfered with the ceremonies. Ready hands set to work and ex tricated the people from the .debris. Fortunately ho one was very much hurt, but after a census had been taken Mr. Timberwheel was found to be missing. A search was instituted, and beforerlong he was found in an" adjoining yard, where, the force of the explosion had landed him. He sat in a lodge-room chair, and his eyes were still blindfolded.

QUESTION OF PROFIT. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 25 July 1914
QUESTION OF PROFIT. "One can often do mora by diplom acy than by brandishing a club," said a man In the- smokeroom of a Mid' land Counties club recently. "Some years ago my next floor | neighbors on either side took the vain notion into their heads that keeping fowls was as profitable as Tunning a distillery. They bought buff Orping tons and Rhode Island reds at famine prices, and awaited results with an ear-to-ear smile of optimism. "Their fences were not exactly hen proof, and my garden suffered. One morning my begonia bed was wreck ed, the next my carnations were ruin ed ; but, though naturally cross, I re frained from challenging the poultry farmers to a couple ot rounds in the woodshed. " 'Here's a joke,' I said to Wiggs, at No. 21, 'Clumpkins at No. 25 has start ed keeping fowls, and doesn't keep his fence in repair. The -blessed things get through, and every morning I find about half a dozen new laid eggs de posited in an old top hat in my out house.' And I brought out for hi...

CHAPTER XXII. The First Angry Word. No sooner had Eric Blammed the door in Elsie's face than the girl, white and trembling, sprang to her feet. , With palsied Angers she groped for the handle, and , in her agitation it was a few seconds before she was able to open the door. When next she stood on the pavement her lius-' band was: nowhere to be seen, and she shivered and staggered back into the hall. ^ For a few moments she stood as one carved in stone; 'then, wilted and drooping and ready to die, she crept to her room and cast herself upon her bed. . But the heart of a young and healthy girl Is not so easily broken, and gradually the spirit that was in her began to assert itself. She wondered at her own fixity of purpose, forgetting the long line of stern Scottish stock from which she had sprung. One thing was plain to her—she could not re main another night under this roof. She could never look her husband in the face again—after this. But whither? That was the ques tion upon which...

The long, glowing, glorious days of summer merged into tlio mellow autumn, and no .flower bloomed in the hedge-rows with a greater beauty and grace than this shy, sweet little "Flower o' the Sea." She lived with her husband in a tiny, white-walled cottage within a stone's throw of her old home, and the soul of Angus Galbraith was over charged with a great thankfulness as he looked at the fresh, young face, suffused with radiant light, and lis tened to the merry peal of laughter which was never far from her lips. Under the sunshine of it he became a new man. In her happiness his own was found. And 110 young wife over joyed with more cause. Eric was as tender, as devoted, as adoring as any woman could hope for. It was no forced ten derness, 110 make-believe adoration, but. the genuine welling-up of a heart surpliaijjed with love. Eric's happi ness was unclouded by regret of the past. Only on rare...

A CITY GOLD MINE. TRANSIT MONOPOLY. Melbourne Tramway Company, in the closing years of a prosperous and well-conducted life, is scattering gold on grateful shareholders.

And now the Tramway Company Is topping its annual divi dend of 4/- a year with an extra bonus of 2/-, making a total distribu tion of £288,000.

[Contributed.] Most of us have seen the conjuror I who puts nn egg shell into n hat, cries "Heigh, IIo, Presto!" makes a few passes with his wand and placing the nut on a table draws out a lion and chickens. It is something of this sort which Labor assures Australia it is about to.?lo. The electors have merelj' to provide the egg shell, in the shape of their votes, and straightway Labor will give them short hours, a slack stroke, high wages, pensions, bounties, incomes for widows nnil orphans, swift stenmers run at nominal rates, n' glorious navy, in brief, all for which they can sigh. As to cost, the voters have merely to nut all thought of that aside till after the election. It is little wonder that having con vinced themselves that they can do all this, Mr Fisher and his colleagues are convincing the simpler of the folk who crowd to their meetings. But Labor can no more carry out its dazzling pro gramme without additional' taxation,, than ...
