CHAPTER VII. Into the Night. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 27 June 1914

HHAPTER VII. Into the Night. When Elsie, all her strength gone from her, fell forward, Eric grasped her in his arms, and rained kisses on her cheeks and lips. The delirium of passionate love swept through him. and he did not rsee that the face.was .pale: and white as a lily blossom, showing the intensity of the struggle. "Elsie," Elsie," he cried, at last, "let me hear from your lips that you love me—that you love me with a love stronger than death." "Oh. Eric, Eric, do not ask me," she wailed. "Am I not showing you to night that you are all the world to me? It makes me frightened." . Darling, what is there to be fright ened about? The other chap? Tell me who it is?" "I cannot, I cannot, Eric; not to-! night. Let this content you," and she clasped him with feverish em brace, and smothered back the sobs that were choking her. "But I would like to know," he re plied, in his old, masterful voice. "You are not going to ii2ep secrets from me already, eh? Elsie, do you want to make me jea...

Local Railway Rates. ABOLITION FROM JULY. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 27 June 1914

Local Railway Rates. ABOLITION FROM JULY. At a meeting of the State Cabinet last week, the subject of local rail way freights, which had been care full}' investigated by the Minister for railways (Mr. Donald Mackinnon), was diBcusaed. At present a statute provides that when a new railway is built, or the Railway Standing Committee so recommends, an extra rate, known as a local rate, is levied on goods hauled over that line. For some time past the Cabinet has had under consideration whether the im position of such a rate tended to ex pand or to retard the growth of rail way revenue. Considerable feeling has arisen in regard to what was considered an injustice on the pro ducers in districts where such local rates were imposed. Mr. Mackin non went into the subject with the Railway Commissioners and found that the sum earned on all lines where the rate was in operation was about £10,000 in round figures. The Cabinet decided to introduce a short bill during the forthcoming session to abo...

V.R.C. STEEPLECHASE MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 27 June 1914

V.R.C. STEEPLECHASE MEETING. Midwinter to many country resi dents is an even more enjoyable time than spring, since though the . fair scene; When birds sang out their mellow lay, And winds were soft and woods were gray," has disappeared in favor of sterner, wilder weather; yet in numberless cases there is a slight cessation of work just about that time. As a consequence, the great steeplechase meeting, which specially appeals to country racegoers, affords a splendid opportunity for a visit to Melbourne, when pastoralists, farmers and their wives can put in a pleasant and pro fitable fortnight in the great metro polis, at the same time taking in the three splendid days' racing provided by the V.R.C. at Flemington. There the club has been busy since the au tumn in rounding off the extensive im provements which have been made, during the last year or two, and visi tors during the first week in July will be surprised and pleased at the fair picture presented to them.

Social Notes A SILVER WEDDING Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Heinrich celebrated their silver wedding on June 5th, at their residence, "Rose Villa," Pella, near Rainbow.

WHITEWASHING TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 27 June 1914

WHITEWASHING TREES. Doubtless the old-time farmer who whitewashed his fruit and other trees about his house did so mainly to pre sent a neat appearance. But nmnv of them did it as well to kill insects and their eggs which were harboring un der the dead bark of the trees. The use of lime as one of the ingredients in mixtures for the killing of insects and the spores of injurious fungi. lias been in practice for very many years. When a boy learning the gardening business, I well remember the head gardener using a mixture of lime and sulphur and common garden soil to paint grape vine canes in the winter season. The garden soil was for the purpose of giving the mixture the hue of the grape cane. that it might retain its natural appearance. The foliage of these vines were never troubled by insects or blights. At the same time that the vines were painted a little sulphur was dusted about on the com mon flues, which were almost wholly used for heating greenhouses in those days, to keep dow...

GRAFTING HUMAN EYES. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 27 June 1914

GRAFTING HUM Aft EYES. ' "Another wonder has been added !to the long list of miraculous ope rations accomplished by modern surgical science. For it has been found possible to save the sight of a patient suffering from a diseased eye by cutting out the affected pnrt and "grafting" on the eye a whole some part taken from another eye. The first point that will occur to the reader will probably be that this necessarily involves the sacri fice of some healthy person's eye. It this were so the discovery would be useless. On the contrary, it is possible to make use of eyes that, from various causes, have had to be removed—provided the particular scclion required for grafting is it self free from disease. So neither victimization nor heroic self-sacri fice is required. In an operation recently performed by a French surgeon a young man had almost lost the sight of one eye through a burn from hot lime. The cornea—that is, the transparent pnrt of the coat of the eyeball which covers the iris a...

Cook's Opinion of Darwin. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 27 June 1914

Cook's Opinion of Darwin. 4 There is an nmusi-ng story told in Mrs. Walford's "Memories of Vic torian London" concerning Darwin, the great scientist, and his cook. .Darwin apparently possessed a very poor appetite, and one day Mrs Darwin consulted with her cook as to the means'by which it might be tempted. "He does got seem to fancy ordi nary food," she said. "Try to think of something." The cook looked up and down and twirled her apron.-. "If you'll excuse the liberty I'm taking, ma'am, I should say that master would be able to take his food better if he got something to do. Idle folks is never hungry." "But your master is not an idle cian," protested Mrs. Darwin, indig nant at such a charge. "He is never idle. In my opinion he works too hard." "Excuse me, ma'am," replied the cook, "but if I may make bold as to eay so, I can't agree to .(hat. With my own eyes I see him in the garden yesterday staring at a leaf for over two whole hours ! Two whole hours ! Well, that ain't work, any ...

A giant warrior, or gladiator, clac in iron armour, was discovered .in one of the tombs, which was cover ed with big tiles taken from the .Temple of Tiberius. A number of bronze coins bearing the efligy ol ithe Empress Faustina, in addition to a quantity Of rings, safety-pins, and brooches oC a very early period a terracotta elephant's head, and a ■fragmentary vase containing in scriptions were also found.

WHEN NOT TO MARRY. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 27 June 1914

WHEN NOT TO MARRY. Do not marry to reform a man. He who would not reform before mar riage is not likely to do so aftcrvards. There is no more fallacious hope a girl can entertain than that of chang ing an unreformed rake into a irood husband. Don't, marry a man to whom "Ves" has been said in a moment of mistak en sympathy or sentimental ecstasy. Symptliy is not !ove, neither is ec stasy; the latter when carried to ex cess is a form of hysteria, and both are poor foundations for matrimony. Don't marry a man who has only liis love to recommend him: there are other qualities requisite in husbands quite as important as this. A head is wanted as well as a heart; a guide, a comforter, a stay, a friend as well as an impassioned Romeo spouting lava-like sentences of devo tion. Very often the more lava-like Romeo is the less likely to earn suf ficient to pay the butcher's bill. Don't marry a man for a livelihood: there are better, safer, and more hon orable ways by which women can earn a liv...

WOMAN'S WORLD. KEEPING YOUR LIPS FROM SLIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 27 June 1914

WOMAN'S WORLD. KEEPING YOUR LIPS FROM SLIPS. In home and social life generally, gossip should he feared as an enemy, and not be tolerated as a welcome guest. It is ever so much safer and better to talk of things rather than persons, thus preventing that enemy, ill-natured gossip, from coming in. Make it a rule, and let it be strictly observed, not to say anything about the faults of another unless there ^s absolute necessity for you to do so. This necessity may arise, and your own judgment can guide you about the matter. _ But where it can be avoided, do not talk of the faults or evil doings of others. Why, indeed, should you do so? You know yourself that you have faults, few or many, and that there are many things you may have done which you prefer should not be repeat ed. Well, then, exercise the same charity to others that you would have extended to yourself. Another tiling to bear in mind is that, if you talk of what is to the dis advantage of another, what you say will doubtles...

SHEEP FARMING FLUKE IN SHEEP: ITS CAUSE AND PREVENTION. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 27 June 1914

SHEEP FARMING FLUKE IN SHEEP: ITS CAUSE AND PREVENTION. The disease affecting sheep ami known as "fluke" is variously de scribed in different parts as "rot," "poke," "bane." The disease is due to the presence in the liver of a worm, in shape like a fluke fish, and hence its common name. This worm or tluke is about an inch in length and half an inch at its greatest width. Its presence in the liver produces disease of tliat organ, and the symptoms shown by the sheep can be traced to ! changes caused in the liver by the fluke. llow does the fluke get into the liver? Flukes in the liver produce eggs, and these eggs pass with the ' bi'c into the intestine, and are voided with the dung. The eggs hatch out sidi the body, and give rise to small creatures that in 110 way resemble the fluke. They arc capable of movement in water, and, therefore, damp, moist places are favorable to their develop ment. In sucli places certain minute snails initially abound, and in the bod ies of these snails ti...

ENGINEERING SWALLOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 27 June 1914

ENGINEERING SWALLOWS. A colony o[ bank swallows taught a young but observing engineer how to •build a tunnel that his more learned superiors had refused to undertake. North of BurlingtO" Vermont, U.S.A., lies a broad, yaiuly plain high above the level of Lake Cham plain, through which the Central Rail road was to be carried by a tunnel. The sand, destitute of moisture, would not cohere; but crumbled away as soon as an excavation was made. After several costly trials the engin eers decided that the tunnel was im practicable. A young man in the engineer's oflice said he could tunnel the sank bank at a small cost. He said he could build the tunnel for so many dollars a running foot; but that he couldn't expect the railway people to act upon his opinion when so many American and European engineers had declared the project impracticable. The managers, however, gave him a contract to build fifty feet of the tunnel, ^n the face of the sand-bank he marked the line of an arch larger than the...
