THE MILLIONAIRE. HIS EXTRAVAGANCE AND FOLLIES. If the American Croesus has dis covered the secret of making millions more rapidly and easier than any other man on earth, he lias also no superior in the art of dissipating them. If anyone doubts this, a walk along the famous l'"ifth Avenue in New York cannot fail to dispel his scepticism; for within half an hour, he will pass some iifty imposing- palaces, which, witii the treasures they contain, represent at least .£20,000,000- -the homes of men whose aggregate fortune is estimated at £600,000,00(1. © The regal home built by Cornclii.3 Vanderbilt, an impressive pile model led on the Castle of lilois, alone cost £1,000,000 to build and decorate.

IN THE PUBLIC EYE. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 17 January 1914
IN THE PUBLIC EYE. After all, the train was only forty minutes behind time, so the station master was perfectly justified in feel ing pleased with himself, the railway, and the world in general. A solitary, waiting passenger was morbidly weighing himself at an auto matic machine, and when he steppod off it the jovial official proceeded to talk to him. "Wonderful thing the railway sys tem, sir!" he chirped. tcI do really believe that even the general public is at last beginning to realise the mar vellous improvements that have taken placo on this line in recent years!"

GIVE THE CHILDREN MORE FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 17 January 1914
OIVE THE CHILDREN MORE FRUIT. The eating of fruit and nuts not merely as a relish, but as a food is highly commendable. Such a diet is very nutritious.. But it is wrong to live entirely tm fruit and vegetables. A diet without meat is particularly uu suited for the growing child. Owing to the nutritive valuo of fruit, to its alkalinising, to its diuretic, to its laxative, to its tonic and other effects, I believo fruit should l>e given more freely to children as food. To my mind, no other food in its natural state alfords so much pleasure to threo out of a child's live senses as fruit. The eye is pleased with its varied forms and colors, and if ripo and luscious it yields a peculiar charm to tho nerves of smell and to a jaded Bense of tasto. Parents tend to give their children too much hot food. Haw food and nuts will help overcome this difficulty. The sensory nerves of tho lips and tho nerves of tasto are weakened by hot food. At tho same time the senso nf smell is blunted and th...

ENGLISH HARD TO LEARN. It is hard for the person to whom English is his native tongue to realise what a struggle the foreigner has to understand somo of the peculiarities of our spelling and pronunciation.
