NOTHING SERIOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 31 July 1914

| NOTHING SERIOUS. Harry Wclson, tho well-known "hall" favourite, tells some football stories. A friend of his, whom he • de-scrib ed as an ideal goalkeeper, was on one occasion thrown of! his guard with disastrous results. Ho expect-, ed that one of his hacks would take a rather soft shot, but the back muddled it somehow, and be fore the goal-keeper could pull him self together the ball was in tho net. The back was apparently very an1 noyed, and with a contemptuous glance ho muttered :— "There aro goglkeepers and goal keepers !" " Yes," retorted tho goalkeeper, cheer/tilly ; "and there are backs and drawbacks !"

CHAPTER XIV. PAYING THE PRICE OF HER FATHER'S SIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 31 July 1914

CHAPTER XIV. PAYING THE PRICE OF HER " FATHER'S SIN. A couple of weeks elapsed ; then one afternoon Fitzpatrick went up to the Hall and told Hctherington that it was about time his daugh i ter was told he wished to marry her. j "You can say that I've more money than I gave people the im pression of having — quite a decent little fortune," said the doctor, with a slight sneer, as he left the room ; and Josh, who hated to feel that he was in any man's power, felt that he would like to kill him, but as there was -no alternative, he dccided to speak to Pat that evening. | Accordingly, after dinner, wfien he ! entered the drawing room, he was glad to find his wife was not there ; but knowing she might return any minute, he told Patricia that he wished to speak to her in the li brary. Wondering what he had to say the girl followed him there, and when her father had shut the door, he came and sat down opposite to her, 'sajing, in a voice that was jr.entler than usual : j "Patricia, I have ...

CHAPTER XIII. A CASE OF BARTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 31 July 1914

CHAPTER XIII. A CASE OF BARTER. Joshua Hetherington sat quite still, looking; with blanched face at the man opposite to him, whose ut • terance had come like an avalanche, • bringing1, that past, which had seem : ed so far away, so securely buried, back to him, and revealing in all its .baldness the crime he had commit . ted. I "I know all about the blue dia Imonds," repeated Fitzpatrick. j For a moment longer there was silence, the two men sat and looked at each other, and as he gazed at his companion Hetherington realised . that he was a man whose silence could be bought, and the thought braced him up, so that his voice never faltered as he said : ! "What do you know about the blue diamonds ?" • Fitzpatrick looked at him admir ingly. He admired pluck, and this man was showing it in the face of a great danger. Yes, he was showing . pluck and a business capacity. One thing was certain—Mr. Hetherington j did not mean to give himself away, and he would have to be careful or he would b...

All his ill-temper had vanished; a good dinner had made him look more hopefully oil his chances of "win ning Meg for his own. Later he would have to visit a patient, who was . seriously ill ; hut this interval was his own, in which to dream of the girl he loved, and it was with some annoyance he turned his head when there was a tap on the door, and the parlourmaid informed him that Miss Morris wished to see him. But the girl had scarcely uttered the words when Therese Morris pushed past her into the room, in time to lrir Fitzpatrick's muttered "Con found her!" Then he recovered him self, and advancing held out his hand, saying : "Good evening, MAbb' Morris, mil1, you sit here ?" and he drew a low , c...

"Plenty of Brass." [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 31 July 1914

"Plenty of Brass." -t Tho annual "Bullion Letter" of Messrs. Samuel Montague and Co., suggests that the phrase expressive i of wealth, "plenty of brass," was introduced into England by sai lors trading with towns at the mouths of tho great African rivers, though the brass rods used by tho natives are now passing into the limbo of things obsolete. A brass rod at Momsemb was 15-in. long, and not quite so thick as a slate pencil. Everything had its price in brass rods—one egg equalled one brass rod ; a fowl, ten brass rods; two yards of cloth, twenty brass rods ; a male slave, 600 brass rods; and a female slave, 2,500 brass rods. The brass for these rods was originally melted down for their brass ornaments—anklets, necklaces, armlets, leg rings, hafts of spears, paddles, and handles of knives, etc. It was using the brass for this purpose that first gavo it any real value to' them. In 1890 tho brass rods still retained their value, not so much as a medium of barter, al though they were ...

Man Jumps to His Death. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 31 July 1914

Man Jumps to His Death. — 1 After having twice leaped from a height-of one hundred feet into the deep waters not far from Niagara Falls, Sam Patch issued a notice in the Rochester papers, that on a certain day ho would jump from a scufYoiu erected on the brink of the Genesee Fulls into the deep bolow, a distance of one hundred and twenty five feet. It was a chilly Novem ber day when ho essayed the feat. Shivering thousands from all parts of America were crowded on the banks of the river. Sam was fond of drink, but his friend William Cochrane, who accompanied him, said that ho had simply taken one glass. He climbed up the pole to his platform hand over hand, and there made the following speech : "Napoleon was a great man and a great general. Ho conquered armies and ho conquered nations, but ho could not jump the Genesee Falls. Wellington was a great man, and a great soldier ; and ho conquered Napoleon, but lie could not jump tho Genesee Falls. That was left for me to do ; and I can d...

LUMINOSITIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 31 July 1914

LUMINOSITIES.' Thoro arc always times when we wish we could see something, which the darkness hides. The angler gives up bccause he cannot see his float: the cricketer because he cannot mc the ball. Luminous paint solves all the-e, and scores of other difficulties. And all that is required is to add a small quantity of calcium sulphide to ordinary white paint. Foats, balls, keyholes, 'etc., then become visible. | A watch light for use at night— avoiding the striking of a match can be made by putting a small piece of phosphorus into a long glass phial, and then filling it one-third full with hot oil. Cork it tightly, and, when light is needed, uncork for a moment and close again. The top part of the phial will be luminous, I and y.ou can see the time. ARE YOU LEFT-HANDED ? It has been estimated that 97 per cent, of the English-speaking people are right-handed when they grow up. Seventeen out of every hundred are born right-handed, but the remaining eighty-three are born without any i...

THE DAIRY. THE JERSEY COW. (Extract from an Address by L. P. Bailey, Ohio.) [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 31 July 1914

THE DAIRY. THE JERSEY COW. (Extract from an Address by L. P. Bailey, Ohio.) The products of the Jersey cow— milk, cream, butter and cheese— stand, in the markets of the world, for best quality. All these have won more premiums in the great com petitive shows than all other breeds combined. No name of any other breed is used to decorate the sides of milk wagons that go through our streets nor the signs on butter and cheese stands. The milk from the average herd of Jersey cows show 5 per cent, and better of butter-fat, making it the most economical the consumer can buy. They can take one pint of cream from one gallon 5 per cent, of milk and the remainder will be as rich as the whole milk of some other breeds. In this way they get the very best cream and milk in the same bottle at the price of milk. No milkman or dealer can work up or oven hold customers in any city, where the people arc acquainted with and can get Jersey milk, with any other except that of the Guernsey. Jersey milk pl...

Public Notice Grant! Hotel, Melbourne, 7th Feb., 1911 Dear Sirs, Having thoroughly tested and examined the new Wertheim Aus tralian Pianos, 1 can with the utmost confidcnce recommend them. They arc eminently satisfactory from every point of view-tone, touch, and finish and must prove durable owing to the soundness of their construction. When such Pianos are manu factured in this, country there teems little need, to my mind, for Australians to favor imported instruments. Your School Model is indeed an excellent production, and possesses a rich full tone, superior to larger models by well-known European makers. Yours faithfully, (Sgd.)

BOY SUICIDES ARE NUMEROUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 31 July 1914

BOY' SUICIDES A'Flfe tfUMEROtJSl . The suicide of school boys in'Ger many and Austria, has become a problem of national importance lat terly, the average working out at three tragedies a week. A volume from the pen of Hans Oswald in denting the "all work and no play" standard of upbringing. Statistics show that the suicides invariably come at the end or beginning of a term, the victim in most cases hav ing failed to . achieve promotion. How serious a matter this is for the German boy few foreigners understand. It means ultimately ! that he may fail in his "going' away" examination, which' in turn ' entails tu'o years' service as a common soldier, whereas should he pass all that the State asks of him is one year as a "gentleman ca det," Hying out of barracks. With out a doubt the fenr of these two terrible years in burntcks—life in a" (Icriinn barracks has been exposed frequently—drives hundreds of boys to suicide. Mrs. Haggs—"Been out of work six months?

Winton Hunt Club. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 31 July 1914

Winton Hunt Club. -0 The second meet of the newly formed Winton Hunt Club took place at the Winton Swamp last. Monday. About thirty horsemen met at the "LookOut" near Mr. Bain's homestead, and at about 10 a.m. the hunters and dogs moved off in the direction of Costello's. Immediately after entering the swamp, which, by the way, is now absolutely dry, a fox was put up, but after a short run eluded his pursuers by entering a thick clump of rushes. The pack (,all kinds and conditions of dogs, numbering about 60) was got together again and the cavalcade moved further on. About 3 minutes afterwards a second fox was put up, and after a fairly strong chase this second fox also escaped. After that the hunters had some splendid sport, no less than eleven foxes being killed dur ing the day. Generally the horses were of a fine stamp and stood the great strain well. Unfortunately a number of the fences in. the vicinity of the meet were wholly. wire and therefore dangerous, but some really fine ...
