WHEN FRANK BULLEN RAN AWAY TO SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 3 February 1914
WHEN FRANK BULLEN RAN AWAY TO SEA. The sailor,, mast-high and swinging :Lt ease with theroll of -the ship, Is a sight less common in tihese daiys of steam propulsion than it used to be. Mr. Bullen, in his "Log of a Sea Waif," gives a description of the sensations when the masthead was a point of dread to him. The author was then a cabin-boy on a ship bound for Bom bay, when one rough day he heard his name called, and running aft, was met by the second mate. He put a coil of rope in my hands and told me to reeve the signal-hal yards in the mizzen truck. We carried extra long royal poles or bare exten sions of masts above the highest point of rigging. Ours were 16 feet long, and the top was not much bigger than a man's wrist. They were crowned with flat pieces of wood the size of a cheese-plate, on one side of which was the sheave for signal-halyards. I started aloft boldly enough, but when I reached the base of the pole and saw to what height its bareness towered above, I faltered. M...
JENNER AND VACCINATION [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 3 February 1914
JENNER AND iACCINATIOa? Edward Jenner, immortalised as the one who introduced vhccination as a preventive of smallpox, was born in ilerkeley, Gloucestershire, in the yeat 1749. After studying in London under the famous John Hunter, Jenner settled quietly down in Cloucestershire as a medical practitioner, little dreaming of the everlasting fame that he was des tined to Inherit. In establishing the. discovery upot. which his honors were to rest Jennel -ncountered tremendous difficulties. The reports flying about the neigh borhood to the effect that the Glouces tershlre milkmaids that had had cow pox were immune to smallpox were looked upon as being little more than idle rumors, and when Jenner express ed himself as having some confidence in them the gentry and small folkh laughed at him. But the young physician was not to' be laughed down. To the girl who said to him in. an off-hand way one day when smallpox was mentioned, "I can't take that disease, for I have had cow. Spox," Jenner ...

PUBLIC DINNERS.

THE BISHOP AND THE LIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 3 February 1914
THE BISHOP AND THE LIONS. The Rev. R. P. Ashe relatcs the fol lowing story of Bishop Ha.'nington, first bishop to eastern Equatorial Afri ca, who, it will be remembered, was cruelly murdered by natives: Hannington had gone out with his gun, followed by his blackboy Bal:iti, when he saw a small animal at some distance moving in the long grass. He had no suspicion what it was; he raised his gun and fired, and the lit tle creature rolled over dead. Instant ly, with a terrific roar, there sprang out two great full-grown lions, and they came bounding towards him. His gun was empty, there was no time even to re-load, so he turned and ran. The lions .were almost upon him, and as his pace grew slower and slower and more uncertain he heard the agonised cry of his faithfull Bakiti, "Hapana, hapana, kimba'" ("No. no, run!") urg ing him to swifter flight. He, how ever, translated it, "Don't, don't ruin," and immediately faced round."'' The lions then stood still, lashing their tails and glaring...

DICK AND HIS "DEN." [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 3 February 1914

His mother folded her hands with an air of patient resignation, Her visitor e?ed her sympathetically. "My Dick was like that at one time. Hle used to spend his evenings stroll ing about the town, and even when he was at home he'd scarcely say a word to anyone. FIe'd never join in any games with his sisters, or anything. But he doesn't now." "However did you cure him?" "Quite easily. I gave him a den ?: his own." Jack's mother stared. "His bedroom had been nothing more than a room to sleep in, but I soon al tered that. I put a nice easy-chair in front of the fireplace, and gave him a little table. Then I stood a book case in the corner, and put all his books in it. I hung some pictures up, the kind of pictures he likes, you know." "What kind?" "Why, dogs and horses and that sort of thing. And when I'd made it a...
