PRICES AND WAGES FOOD PRICES INDEPENDENT OF PAY [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 5 March 1914

PRICES AND WAGES FOOD PRICES INDEPENDENT OF PAY (By L. G. Chiozza Money, in "Daily News and Leader.") Staring out at me from the columns of a daily newspaper, published as the considered utterance of a member of Parliament, I see a statement to the effect that if the wages of British work men were doubled to-morrow, the change would be of no value to them because the prices of commodities would rise in the same proportion, and there fore they would be no better off than | before. It is necessary to take serious | note of this statement, because I And ! it is the expression of an opinion which is widely held up and down the United Kingdom at the present time. This opinion has gained ground because of the reaction in prices which has taken place during the last half generation. Because that rise in prices has can celled the value of the rise in wages in the same period, people have jumped to the conclusion that higher wages and higher prices are necessary concomi tants of each other. ...

CHAPTER XV. Lady Montamor. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 5 March 1914

CHAPTER XV. Lady Montamor. Lady Montamor was seated at the writing table in her boudoir. Of French extraction, she had, as the pretty bru nette Julie de Villeneuve, captured the hitherto unconquered affections of Lord Montamor. But, as southern born brunettes, unless they "put on flesh," as it is brutally termed, do not retain the smooth skin and rich beau ty of youth as long as their northern sisters, so it would have oeen hard for one knowing Julie de Villeneuve in her first girlhood's bloom to recog nise her in this withered, faded, old lady with the crumpled brown skin the prominent .bones of cheek and brow, the scant grey hair under a black lace head-dress. Lady Monta mor could not (be robbed by age of her magnificent eyes. But even they had lost their clearness and fire and their focus of things. She gazed down at the notepaper on which she was liter ally scribbling letters, through her pince-nez, and would have reminded any stranger of an old owl as she sat there in her black...

The Great Montamor Case. CHAPTER XIV. At the Cottage. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 5 March 1914

The Great Montamor Case. By ALICE M. DIEHL, Authoress of "The Knave of Hearts," CHAPTER XIV. At the Cottage. Meanwhile, the returned heir -wait ed in. the miniature drawing-room. He moved about his close quarters like a Polar hear in his cage—alternately puzzled, angry, miserable, hopeless. Netta loved him, he told himself. She had loved him before the great shock of a contest for her, more un scrupulous, more terrible than the struggle of two men loving one girl is wont to be in civilised times. She had loved him still when he had to make his confession—a confession not only of the evil accruing to his own passions, but to those of his rival. But had she ever been again the same bright, lovely Netta of the first happy days at the farm? "Never," he thought. She had seemed to recover from the first shook of his revelations. In any case, she had submitted to his wishes—had given her promise to be his wife; nor had she—spotless, innocent of all worldly desires—been in the least de gree...

GAY WELCOME TO 1914 SHEPHERD AND THE MOON. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 5 March 1914

GAY WELCOME TO 1914 SHEPHERD AND THE MOON. (By W. Beach Thomas in "The Daily Mail.") In the country we enter the New Year gaily. The moon shows a thin and dainty sickle over the grove, and throws just enough light to sparkle on snow and rime. The stars in the belt of Orion,in which French sailors find peculiar luck, shim mer electrically in the frosty air of a night as true to season as ever the year was in good old time—let us say in 1861 —when "Good King "Wenceslas" was sung along the Ouse to the tune of the fenmen's skates at the hour when the Old Year went and the New Year came. On one down that I know of the New Year will be seen in by the only men who can really act as carol. The shep herd's light twinkles on the hill, look ing from below about as big as Alde baran or Vega and out-winking the North Star. The hurdles are packed with straw, the ewes are collected, and the cry of new-born lambs and the troubled bleat of the ewe following after the shepherd are likely to make the ...

LATE QUEEN OF SWEDEN [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 5 March 1914

IiATE QUEEN" OF SWEDEN The late Queen Sophie of Sweden was a great reader, and was well ac quainted with many of the religious j books that have been published in the last thirty years (says "The West minster Gazette")- She read the books of Dr. F. B. Meyer with much appre ciation, and took the first opportu nity of hearing him preach on an in cognito visit to London. Queen So phie attended several years ago the Keswick Convention, with which she was in full sympathy. Few in the great tent were aware that the sweet faced elderly lady in black was a Queen. In her many years of- ill health the Queen was never idle, for she loved to work for the poor and needy. The Salvation Army and the late General Eoolli held a high place in her thoughts. Volumes dealing with foreign missions were perused by Queen Sophie with practical re sults, for she contributed to various special efforts.

FAINT IN FRONT OF TRAIN AN ASTONISHING ESCAPE [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 5 March 1914

FAINT IN FRONT OF TRAIN AN ASTONISHING ESCAPE Of the many astonishing accidents and lucky escapes which have been re corded from time to time (says "The Daily News and'Leader" of December 31), that which occurred to Lily Alden at Grimsby yesterday, probably holds a place of its own. Miss Alden, who is a printer's as sistant. was crossing the railway line at the Pasture street crossing when a passenger train from Hull was due. The road gates were closed, and the girl made use of the hand gates. She was on the line used by the approaching train, when, without a moment's warning, she fainted and fell, to the ground. It is exceedingly fortunate for Miss Alden that the signalman in the nearby box happened to be looking in her direc tion and that he was just in time to I put the signals against the oncoming I train and run out a red flag at the window of his box. ; The driver applied the emergency brakes, and the train was brought to a standstill within a few feet of the un conscious girl...

Not Worth While. It is certainly not worth while for anyone to endure suffering which can be avoided.. Pain is really a drain on vitality. Jt is impossible for anyone who suffers from pain to be as ef ficient as if pain were absent. A large num'ber of people, however, go through life afflicted with ailments which do not incapacitate them from performing their duties, but which decidedly pre .vent them from doing their best. Rheumatism, gout, lumbago, sciatica, neuralgia, 'blood disorders, anaemia, indigestion, biliousness, sick-heaclache, general debility, gravel, stone and bladder troubles are complaints which afflict many of us, and which are gene rally caused 'by retention of uric and biliary poisons in the system owing to defective action of the kidneys and liver, and which would disappear if the kidneys and liver properly per formed their functions. Warner's Safe Cure is a kidney: and liver remedy, which has been successful in so many cases that sufferers from any of the. coiap...

RETURN TO ROMANCE COOMBE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 5 March 1914

RETURN TO ROMANCE COOMBE. (By Eden, Phillpotts in "The Dally News and Leader.") Life comes laden still with good days that whisper of romance, when in some local sanctity, or haunt of old legend, our feet loiter for a little before we pass forward again. I indeed seek these places, and confess an incurable affection for romance in my thoughts and deeds. I would not banish her from art or life, and though most in tellectuals of to-day will have none of her, spurn romantic and classic alike, and take only "realism' to their bosoms; yet who shall declare that rea lism is the last word, or that reality belongs to her drab categories alone? "There is no 'reality' for us—nor for you either, ye sober ones, and we are far from being so alien to one another as ye suppose, and perhaps our good will to get beyond drunkenness is just as respectable as your belief that ye are altogether incapable of drunken ness." A fragrant return to romance must surely awaits literature, when our ar tists have...
