CHRISTMAS ON A DERELICT. By Willard Keyes. We were snug In the cabin of the Ellen Bayne, and our captain's little girl kept asking if it wasn't time to bang her stocking. "After supper, Sweety," her mother answered, and went on with her knit ting. I lounged in my bunk, reading, and when the schooner staggered in a hol low of the sea 1 was glad to bo a pas senger and not one of the crew. The captain came below nt Rix. "\Vell, Sweety," said he, "what do you think Santy'll bring you to-night?" "Maybe he 'ii bring me a doll.' "lial'd be jolly. I hope he'll 'bring ine a let-up of foul weather."

HONORABLE MENTION. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 1 January 1914
HONORABLE MENTION. I'm one of those near winners who, In any competition, Almost but do not quite squeeze through The gateway of ambition; For when I try for any kind Of prize or brain invention, Under "Awards" my name I find, Wins "Honorable Mention.!' It's just the same whenever I, To mend my circumstances, For something lucrative nlply With seemingly good chances. Just as I think I've got a clnch As steady as a pension, I lose the job by halt an inch With "Honorable Mcntion." The same with love. The girl who most Aroused my heart's emotion Had several beaux, yet I made boast Of privileged devotion; Yet when I felt I had obtained Her best and solo attention, She married Muggs, andi all I gained Was "Honorable Mention." And probably 'twill be my fate When, after earthly striving, I conie at last to heaven's gate, To hear upon arriving: "Although to win a dazzling crown Was doubtless your intention, We find we hhve to hand you dowvn Our 'Ilonorablo Mention.'

THE HOMING INSTINCT OF A CAT. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 1 January 1914
THE HOMING INSTINCT OF A CAT. A wonderful instance of the homing instinct of a cat is described by a correspondent of "Country Life" "Our chauffeur's daughter recently came by rail from her home in Car disu to visit her father at Ripon. She brought with her, in a basket, an ordinary black tom-cat, which she has had four years, inteciding to leave him with her father. After the first day in his new home, whie his mis tress was still here, the cat disap peared and could not be found. In quiries elicited the fact that a black cat had been seen on the railway which passes near the house. Ten days later a letter arrched frocii Car dliff saying that tlhe cat had come home. "'He was in an exhausted state, with all his claws worn off and the flesh of his toes abraded. The distance be tween Ripon ancd Cardiff is filly two hundred acid fifty imiles. The cat must therefore have travelled clearly thirty miles a day. Physically that is a fairly good feat. But, if he re turned by the way he came,...

GROW THE LAMBS WELL. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 1 January 1914
GROW THE LAMBS WELL. No single part of successful sheep husbandry is more vital to the finan cial welfare of the flock-owner than the 'growing of the lamb crop to ma turity. Every sheep man recognises the fact that quality is the predomln ant factor in the determination of market value of flock products. There is little difficulty iin securing top mar ket prices when the goods can be de livered. When il mb is dropped healthy andl robust, anti sucking a leeip-nlllting ewe, there is little trouble encounttereti to bring him to early market maturity. But the hitch comes, when adverse conditions are confronted, and prutlent judgment must be exercised to eliminate the obstacle. Flock-owners generally recognise tile Imnlortance of properly growing lie lanib crop to promote raipid gain and uniformity. The market to-day, troom every view-poitt, is discrimina tilng in favor of early maturity and autiforin q utility. Time mutton-maker tiust ibe alert to the ticmand of the market if lie hopes ...
PRECIOUS HUMAN HAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 1 January 1914
PRECIOUS HUMAN HAIR. A lock of tocthe's hair has been valued at one thousand pounds by the St. Petersburg courts; but, though this is the most recent example of the cult of the hair relic, the practice of treasuring the hair of great men is very old. The beard of Mahomet, the favorite oath of many Moslems, is a case in point. Tile Prophet had the habit of stroking his beard as he talked. Thlose hairs which fell out n ero seized upon by the dlevout and vnlleralted as sacred relies. Thus in 1723 one of these sainted hairs was enclosed in a box of gold and covered with a crystal lid, and over it was built a mnagnilicent monumnent to pre serve the relic at Cluddapah, in the province of Balaghat. Nor is it only the disciples of great men who have set value on the hair of their heroes. The heroes themselves have realised. the sentimental if not the nmonetary value of their hair.

FIRES. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 1 January 1914
The recent destructive fire at Chelsea has caused tie lrcal resi dents to be nervously careful in handling igniiintug mcdiumis, in] no wonder. Through ttie carelessness of an inldivitutl iin usiiig Iseroseite, hundrcels of tenements have heen destroyed; tut, strainge to say, the premises on which ttie coiilagration originated escaped with comipara tively little damage. A nunmber of tihe proporhies were not insured and others only inadequately, so great loss has resu'ted. Thie South Riding valuations must necessariy be re dluced, and ttiis, considerinig tie overdrafts and loans that have been contracted, must give cause for serious consideration.
