VAIN DIPLOMATS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 7 August 1914

VAIN DIPLOMATS. Court life is turned inside out by H.R.H. the Infanta Euialia of Spain, aunt of King Alfonso, and she pre sents to us in "The Strand Magazine." where her memoirs are appearing, a picture of scandals, intrigues, and jeal ousies which is astonishing. Some of her most piquant remarks are reserv ed for diplomats, whose ears must surely be tingling. In her opinion, of all men in modern Courts, the diplomat is the most ab surd. After remarking that they aro "a useless survival of the days when the relations between nations depend ed on the feelings between Soveroigns and the diplomats intrigued and flat tered to some purpose by smoothing over misunderstandings or exasperat ing offences," the Princess points; out that nowadays tho Court diplomat lias no power, except to deliver the mes sage of his . home Government. "He is riot entrusted with secrets," she says, "any more than an erran-1 boy.. And he is usually stupid. If a family of position has a son who is not -mite brig...

LEGUMES AS FARM CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 7 August 1914

LEGUMES AS FARM CROPS." (By Charles P. Cass, in "Kimball's Dairy Farmer.") Practical . farmers generally notice that their cultivated crops, as maize, tobacco, or potatoes, do best when grown where a good clover sod was ploughed under. Centuries ago, tho best farmers in Europe recognised the value of tho legumes. The Greeks and Bomans grow vetch and lucerne -or medica, as it was then called. This name, "Medica," was given to lucerne because it seemed to improve tho soil' and was such a good feed for the stock that they considered it as a medicine. Clover was one of tho main crops in tho Norfolk rotation, which proved so valuable in tho agri cultural development of England in the early part of the eighteenth cen tury. Soy beans are natives of China and Japan, where they have been grown for centuries. There "they are valued as food, as a soil improver, and as feed for 6tock. Thus, tho ^legumes are not a newly developed - species of plants, but have been grown for many years and centur...

ROSSETTI AND THE SALMON. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 7 August 1914

ROSSETTI AND THE SALMON. The enthusiasm of genius leads to strange and curious happenings nt times, and the story which is told by Mr. Henry Holiday, the famous artist, about his friend Rossetti in his "Re miniscences" illustrates in an amusing manner the later's thoughtlessness when he came in contact with anything which aroused his interest. At one time Rossetti had all the en thusiasm of the beginner for eollenl ing china. "He* dined one evening with friends who followed his lead in the matter of china, to such good pur pose that the whole dinner was served in beautiful specimens, and for th? better display of these was set out on the table. The salmon was served in a noble dish, evidently a preciour. example. When the cover was re moved, Rossetti started, leaned oyer to examine the dish, took it. in bot!i hands, turned it upside down to see the marks on the back, leaving the sal mon on the tablecloth, and .exclaimed, 'The very dish I was going to get to morrow!"'

It seemed a ridicul ous thing for a prominent Harley-st. specialist to be setting out on a wild, midnight adventure like this with: no logical excuse, and no notion where the escapade might lead him. Madamii Desterre had annoyed and piqued him. She had spoken of his private affairs with thinly-veiled insolence, and she had, moreover, threatened him. Who was this giddy, glittering society but terfly who ventured to pit her wit? againBt his? He would show her that this sort of thing was not to be toler ated! Gilray's blood waB up now, and he was determined to see the matter through. The more knowledge he gained the better armed would he be for the fray, if fray there was eventu ally to be.

He had formed a compact with Enid, showing that she was more or lesB under an obligation to him. It wculd have been a difficult matter to state precisely what that obligation was, but no doubt time would help him to give it some satisfactory de finition. Anyway, Enid had been desperately afraid lest he should spealt, lest he should say something thf.t might put Van der Knoot on the ..track of his missing miniatures. Gll ray had certainly seen the precious pictures in the hands of Daniel Har ley. Whether thoy had been stolen or not it did not in the least matter -perhaps there was some strange story atached to their appearance in the queer dock-house, some plausible explanation.
