The Great Montamor Case. CHAPTER VI. The Pretender. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 5 February 1914
Heo' reat Montamor calse -By ALICE M. DIEHL, .\uthoress of "The Knave of Hearts," CHAPTER VI. The -Pretender. - The entrance to Riverview, as the villa was called, was in a lane. It was well that there ,wls a wide car riage-drive and a large stable-yard, for the place was well stocked with motor-cars when Miss Halldare had slowly driven in. Arrangements had been made at the inns for the "put ing up" of the horse vehicles. There was a festive air about the trees and shrubs and house front, electric lights having been festooned about. producing the effect of a shower of fireflies; and as Gwendolen ascended the steps, under an awning, she stop ped short to admire the interior. The hall, ordinarily of a kind which would pass muster as a decently-arranged entrance and escape comment, was transformed into a bower of pale green silky draperies, festooned with roses. Maids in white and rose color smilingly conducted the ladles to the dining-room, changed into a boudoir. G*-endolen was since...

REV. MILLIKAN ON GAMBLING. ITS INFLUENCE ON SPORT. .THE BATTLE OF CHRISTIANITY IN THE FUTURE. At the Methodist Church, Maude street, on Sunday evening, the Rev W A Millikan, in the presence of a large congregation, delivered a sermon on the subject of Gambling, taking for his text, "Come ye out from among them and be ye seperate, saith the Lord, and teach none the unclean thing. - II Corinthians, vi, 17. Mr Milliknso said: The great truth that Paul in these words taught the Corinthians, is the great truth that we must not loose sight of. It is this: ' Our nation's best ally is God' Once a brave Scot-English:ambassador to the Court of Prussia-sat at the table of Frederick the Great, then about to begin a war, and to help him he was expecting England to send him subsidies. Round the table sat French wits, of the infidel sort, and they with the King, made merry over the ' decadent super stitions of Christianity," as they termed them. Suddenly the talk changed to war and wars alarms. Th...
LORD ROSEBERY [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 5 February 1914
LORD ROSEBERY Dr. Brandes, the great Danish critic, now in England gives high praise to Lord Rosebery as an orator in an ar ticle in "T.P.'s Weekly." "Lord Rosebery," he says, "has a never failing dignity; instead of incis iveness and mordancy the charm of quiet eloquence and the delicate, re strained fancy that elicits now a smile, now laughter. As a man and as a i speaker he is elegance personified. And such is his mastery that, when he says anything witty or amusing, his. face preserves the most imperturbable gra vity. Only when the answering ap plause reaches him does that face break Into a smile that positively enchants one by its coquettish roguishness. "For Rosebery is thoroughly coquet tish as a speaker; again and again he charmed one with gentle coquetry. He spoke, for instance, of the destructive power of old age which thinned the hair-he passed his hand over his head, which was well covered-and reduced the teeth-he pointed to his mouth, which was in good order-but althoug...

CONVICTS AS HORSES [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 5 February 1914
CONVICTS AS HORSES There is much talk in Perth (Scot land) concerning convicts at the Peni tentiary being employed as beasts of bhurden. For some time people who frequent the Edinburgh road district adjoining the Gene?a Prison have noticed that in the work of ploughing the fields connected with the peniten tiary prisoners 'wearing the garb adorned with the broad arrow have taken the place of horses or oxen. This spectacle to many has been regarded as extremely humiliating.
THE STATE AND THE FARMER. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 5 February 1914
THE STATE AND TEI FARMER. IeOST people realise in a general way that to at least three States, Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia wheat growing is a vitally important matter. Com paratively few, however, have gone at all carefully into the figures, or know how much the cost of marketing affects, and must affect, the area under cul tivation. According to the report of the Royal Commission which considered the question, the price of wheat has during the last ton years varied from 2s 9J to 4A 21 per bushel ; when the latter price is paid the farmer can afford to pay for bags and for out of date methods of handling; but when the lower price rules the cost of marketing under utterly out of date methods is ruinous. The report of the Royal Commission says that the cost of bags is from sixpence to sevenpence; that the cost of handling them is a big item, and that the usual method of weighing them is quite unsatis. factory. It adds, what all who are interested in the subject know,...

TURK'S STRANGE DEATH [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 5 February 1914
TURK'S STRANIGE DEATH The case of Kavakll Mustapha, who was. arrested on board a Russian steamer, has had a tragic development in the shape of his death in prison (says Reuter's Constantinople corre spondent to "The Daily Express"). Although according to the official ver sion he is stated to -have committed suicide, there seems to be little reason to doubt that he succumbed to police methods used to extort information as to the doings of Prince Saba Eddin and other opponents of the present regime, whose emissary he is supposed to have been. The question is much aggravated from an international standpoint by this development, and the Russian Em bassv will be compelled to insist on the fullest satisfaction being given to it

CROWN RENT £760 AN ACRE [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 5 February 1914
CROWN RENT £160 AN ACRE Tenants of bathing huts at Stokes Bay, near Portsmouth, are up in arms against their ground landlord (says "The Daily Mail.") They have been informed that their rent is to be in creased by 180 per cent., which means that they will have to pay at the rate of over £760 an acre. The landlord is not a duke, but the Government. The "land" is shingle beach, which could not grow even a mangold wurzel. The plots are let on yearly tenancy, and up to now the rent has been fixed at 1/- per foot frontage, but tihe War Department, which controls the beach, has just notified the tenants that af ter April 1 the rent will be fixed at 2/- per foot of frontage, added to 6d a foot of depth. "For example," says the official let ter, "the rent of a site measuring 5ft. frontage by 8ft. depth will be 14/- per annum." At present such a plot costs 5/- a year.

WOMEN EXPLORERS [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 5 February 1914
WOMEN EXPLORERS Mr P.: Amaury Talbot, a District Commissioner in Southern Nigeria (West Africa), who has just completed a journey of over 4300 miles in the Eket district, stated in an interview with Reuter's representative that he found I customs and ceremonies which appear, to have come down unchanged from.the days of the Pharaohs. In some parts the dead are roughly mumnifled, while underground burial chambers are to be found planned like those of ancient Egypt. He found also traces of bird worship and witnessed a bird dance never before seen by Europeans. Mrs Talbot, who, with her sister has been travelling through the region, has been making a special study of the women of the tribes. Mr Talbot, referring to the hard task of the administration in dealing with secret societies, which at certain times of the year still seek to offer human sacrifices (says the "Daily Mfal," No vember 24) said:-"Towards the end of September such an attempt was made In a distant part of the district. ...
BARRISTERS' DELUSIONS [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 5 February 1914
'BARRISTERS' DELUSIONS A curious story of a barrister's delu sions .with regard to a well-known authoress was related to the Recorder of London at the Old Bailey yesterday (says the "Daily Teelgraph" of De cember 11). William Burke, 42, bar rister, was indicted for sending a postal packet containing an improper letter. Mr. Travers Humphreys prosecuted, apd Mr. E. L. Hadfield defended. Mr. Travers Humphreys said the de fendant was a member of Gray's Inn, and, when a student, attended a course of lectures given by Mr. Arthur Underhill. Mr. Underhill had a daugh ter-Miss Evelyn Underhill-who was married, in 1907, to Mr. Stuart Moore, another member of the bar. Burke had no acquaintance with Mr. Under hill, save as a lecturer, and he was not known either to Mr. or Mrs. Stuart Moore. The lady had written a. num ber of books in her maiden name Evelyn Underhill-and it would seem that the defendant had read some of them. Her last book was published about Christmas last, and since April the ...
