A LINE OF SAFETY. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 February 1914
A LINE OF SAFETY. "One of the characteristics of my old, comrade, Amos Stillman, was brav ery in actual' fighting service," said the old soldier. "Another characteris tio was a sense of humour which stood him in good stead even in the face of danger, and contributed not a little to the gaiety of his comrades. '"At the Battle of Cold HI-arbour, just before making the charge, and while under the Confederate fire, our cor poral, who was over six feet tall, and scarcely bigger round than a gun-bar rel, became excited as the enemy's bul lets ploughed up the earth about him. "What kind of a place is this to keep a man in ?" ho demanded. 'Ab solutely without protectionl' "'He had no more than spoken when Private Stillman stuck his ramrod in the ground.

MISSING CONTINENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 February 1914
Mill'SSING CONTINENTS. it has long been ,one of the delights of .pallosophy andl soleCce to spend iiheir imagination on the construction of v'anished contnents, wllere either Euto pinJs our sh d, or the conditions ob sining were suitable for the develop mnent of "'nussi..g links" Thus on the one side1 of the. world we have the hypothetical, but probable continent. somnetunes called Lnomuria, of which the Dutch East India Isles are all that roemain, where the biologist and eth nologist may sport w\ith theories 01 tihe arrival and dispersal of man; and on the other side we have the Atlantis of thel ancients-thh?t island to the west of the Strait of Gibralter, which legend has it, was submerged by the gods, because of the impiety of its in habitants. But, althoughl this At lantis is apocryphal, it has long been known that the west of Europe, Africa and thell British Isles once extended far beyond their ,present coast lines into the sea; and that; at one time Great Britain and Ireland w...

GENERAL NEWS Tile Delegate ARAUS says; Eroni's Circus had a frightfully rough trip through from Orbost, and in the opinion of many, they did well to get here at all. Mr Eroni says he wouldn't go over the same track again for £500. While on the road the cage con taining the lion over-turned near Sardine Creek, and went over a steep incline. The turn-out fell fully 400 yards. and marvellous to state, when the men got to the bottom they found the horse un injured and the lion still secure in his cage, the latter being practi cally undamaged. Senator Barker is visiting the Gippsland district and has got as far as Orbost, where he is staying for a day or two.

QUAINT TENURES. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 February 1914
QUAINT TENURES. The kings and princes of England seem to have delighted to amuse them solves by the devising of tenures for their personal profit, pleasure, and amusement. Some in their nature (writes Paul Monckeon in tihe "Con temporary Review") are such as to be unprintable in the twentieth century Press; these quickly came to be com muted to a money payment. Others, again, are posiively amazing in the variety and nature of the cusLoms by wwhich they were to be held. For instance, the "Lordship of Bures. in Essex, was held by the sergeantry of scalding the King's hugs; Carleton, in Nottingham, by 'dhe service of one catapult in the year for all services; two farms at Carlcoats, Yorkshire, by the service of finding, one a right hand glove, and the otlher a left hand glove. the whole of the Manor of Caldeeote was held by Humnplirey de Bol~pm by virtue of: being Lord High Constable of Englaniida post now abolished on ac count" of the degree of power and splen dour aittachinug to the ...
