Fearfully homesick. I brought his bed nearer the fire. You'd better cheer him up a bit if he should wake during the night." VIGIL, BEGINS "Good night," she adds, rising.' And nurse begins her vigil.

FIRE AT THORPDALE. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 25 February 1914

F4RE AT THORPDALE. A serious fire took place on Friday morn ing, on the farm of Mr Fred. Shackleton. At a little after 9 a.m., smoke was seen issuing from a haystack adjoining the chaffhouse, and before aid could be obtained, and owing to the heat and dryness, the fire spread to the outbuildings, all of which were totally de stroyed. A modern cowshed, fitted with engine and milking machines, chaffhouse with chaflcutter, silo filled with ensilage, a large stack of hay and a quantity of fencing were consumed in a very short space of time. The fire soon spread towards the residence, but, with assistance from neighbors, whp began to arrive, thin was saved. Though partially insured, Mr Shackleton will be a great loser, for be is a practical farmer, and has striven during the past few years to work his farm on good principles; he has a dairy herd of picked cows, and the loss of the fodder for winter feed will be severely felt.

From Genoa to Nice is but a step, and Pulkowski thought he would like to visit the pretty French town, especially as it was then at the height of the season. The pro menades were crowded with pretty English, French,.
