THE SHADOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 March 1914

THE SHADOWS. By Walter Marples. I Why Jack Monkson chose such _a 1 quiet; out-of-the-way place for his fort- , night's vacation was a mystery to his friends. ■' "Sparvale! Never heard of it," ob served one. I "Got a girl there?" queried another. All failed to elicit any response, ex- j cepting an inscrutable smile. Jack was ; as silent as the sphinx. The day that he arrived at the sta tion was one of those which only an English autumn can furnish—sunshine without glare, warmth without oppres siveness, and a bracing atmosphere that imparted new life with every breath in haled. He did not mind the eight-mile tramp over the moorland, for the | heather was at its best, the purple of it seeming to lend color to the distant haze, until earth and sky interming led. His eyes scanned the landscape, searching for a half-forgotten land mark. He was trusting to instinct to guide him in the right direction. Suddenly a wailing cry as of some one in pain came to him from the dis tance Looking inte...

III. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 March 1914

III. .At 11 p.m. Murphy again admitted liis two stealthy visitors. By the light of an elctric torch, which one of them carried, they made their way- to the phonograph. "Did. it work all right?" asked Lo gan. "Yes. 1 let it off just as they start ed," replied the ever-truthful Murphy. Carefully they carried the instrument away with them, leaving their confeder ate looking as if life held out no more prospects for him, at any rate. "Slnuv will open his ey.es when he hears it," said .Logan, as they hurried along. "He rather prides himself on his music; thinks he knows a lot about it. Ho ought to appreciate this." "It's g^reat, man. We've done, old Brindle a treat. We shall be quits for that kick, I got," said Oliver, feeling gingerly at the affected part. "Brindle knew I had done him before but he won't have the faintest notion who has got at him this time," said Logan. "Murphy seems a bit queer." "Not when he got his dibs. I've ask ed about half a dozen chaps to come in. They don't kn...

Fumina. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 March 1914

Fumina. Fire is a good servant, but a bad master, and during the week it has almost assumed the latter position in Fumina. Some years ago it laid this country waste, and the resi dents suffered loss which took years to make up. Little wonder if they I dread its appearance, and vow ven geance on the man who wifully throws down the match to benefit himself, but who cares not who suffers afterwards. After such a long spell of dry, hot weather, and with scrub cut aggregating about 200 acres, the position here is one of grave concern. "fcTp to the pre sent, however, only a few minor losses are reported, and if the course of the fires can be stopped, good, rather than harm, will be the result. As usual, no one lit it in the first •instance ; it simply started itself— but someone knows all about it. Fumina is losing one of its oldest residents, namely, Mr Roily Bride, of Rlount Tooronga. After a resi dence of 23 years, he is moving citywards. A send-off was accord ed him by a number of the...

FAMOUS SLOVENS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 March 1914

FAMOUS SLOVENS. It is surprising liow careless .of their outer appearance many famous men have been. It is said of Turner, the great landscape painter, that liis hands were the smallest and dirtiest hands on record. Perhaps that is an exaggera tion, but he was certainly very slovenly in his dress, lie wore a blacK swallow tail dress coat, very much in need of a clothes-brush vigorously applied, and in the warmest as well as in the coldest weather he wore around his throat a sort of wrap or mutiler, which he would unloose, letting the ends dangle down in front and dip into the colors of his palette. He always worked either with liis old hat on his head or with this same large muffler over his head. His appearance was more like that of an old-time coachman than of a famous Royal Academician, for he was short and stout, with a red and blotchy face. l>r. Johnson's slovenliness has almost passed into a proverb. There are many contemporary accounts of his turning out of his house in, B...

BOAT RUNNING STORY OF A LONDON SALT [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 March 1914

BOAT RUNNING j STORY OP A LONDON SALT Most Londoners with a memory of 1 Dockland, which includes some know- ; ledge of the Old Mahogany Bar and j of Blackwall Pier when emigrants embarked there on sailing ships for che Antipodes .(quarters of beef sus pended on tackle abaft the mainmast) would know how to get to Poverty Corner. Of course, that is not its name. Being so close to Leadenhall street it is more respectably christened. It is in close touch with the shipping of fices and the produce markets. There is a railway station near, and gath ered round are shops selling nautical instruments and charts, the offices of ship chandlers, and places where you may fit out apprentices for sea with everything from the marine soap to the gold-laced cap. Standing on the kerb there, or lean ing against the walls, are men who might be permanent features of the landscape. They stand thoughtfully smoking, gazing into vacancy for hours at a time.

CONSUL'S WIDOW HOTEL BILL. QUESTION. A fashionably-dressed 'woman of 4S, Hannah Gordon "Watson, who was | stated to lie the widow of a former i Consul of the United States, was re manded on bail at Bow street, yester day (reports "The Daily News," De cember 23), charged with fraudulently obtaining credit to the extent of £7 ' odd at the Waldorf Hotel. The defendant was wearing a long black velvet coat, trimmed with fur and was heavily veiled. Detective-Sergeant Collins stated that he saw the defendant at Charing-cross station on Saturday afternoon, and said to her, "I believe you represent yourself to. be the Hon. Mrs Watson?" She replied, "Yes." After the warrant had been read to her she said, "I have done nothing wrong. I intended to pay my bill. I expected some money from Australia which should have reached me on December 2. It has been delayed, and I am left in a fix; but as soon as it arrives I shall pay them. I told them how I was placed, and they told me to go. Surely I have ...

FIRE AT DOCK HISTORIC TOWER AND STORES DESTROYED. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 March 1914

FIRE AT DOCK HISTORIC TOWER AND STORES DESTROYED. One of the most disastrous fires in the history of the Royal Dockyard at Portsmouth took place on Saturdav night, and was only extinguished early yesterday morning, after two lives had ' been lost and damage had been done that is roughly estimated at half a mil lion in extent (reports "The Daily Ex press" of December 22). The dead len are Pensioner Signal mail Pook and Signalman Stewart, who were on duty in the semaphore tower. Many things that have b&en burned cannot be replaced. They in clude warship models and valuable naval records. A great block of buildings, covering an acre of ground, with a frontage of 700 feet, and containing an enormous quantity of naval stores, has been, burnt, out. The famous semaphore- tower which has for nearly a century been the cen tral naval signalling station of the port, has been destroyed. The great new battle-cruiser Queen Mary, which was anchored close to the scene of the fire, was for s...

"THE COONEYITES" NEW RELIGIOUS SECT. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 March 1914

"THE COONEYITES" NEW RELIGIOUS SECT. A remarkable libel action brought against the proprietors of the weekly newspaper "The People" at the in stance of two members of a religious sect known as "The Cooneyites" or or the "Go-Preachers," came before Mr Justice Darlington in the King's Bench division, upon an announcement of settlement (says "The Daily Mail" of December 12).

DOMESTIC ECONOMY SERVANT SAVED £2000. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 March 1914

DOMESTIC ECONOMY SERVANT SAVED £2000. A pleasing, and evidently authentic, story conies from Baltimore about a family servant, says the New York "Nation." She came from Germany twenty seven years ago, has lived with one Baltimore family, ever since, and now returns to Germany with the tidy sum of nearly £2000, accumulated by steady saving. Particulars as to wages are wanting, but it is evident that she has been having all these years a comfortable home and has been thor oughly appreciated in the household in which she lived. It is not improbable that her wages have been somewhat more liberal than usual, and that she has received pre sents that have helped her to economise in the matter of dress. But it is to be noted at once that there is nothing in the least marvellous about the tale. There are thousands of servants who, without sacrificing the requirements of comfort or self-respect, and without failing to live up to a very good stand ard of appearance as to clothing, could put by...

DEMAND FOR DOCTORS APPOINTMENTS GO BEGGING [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 March 1914

DEMAND FOR DOCTORS APPOINTMENTS GO BEG-GTNG The popular supposition that medi cine is an overcrowded profession is being exploded. The real truth is t.hn:t there is an extraordinary shortaee of doctors at the present moment .and men cannot be found willine to accent public appointments. So serious has the question become that at the opening of the next parlia mentary session a demand will bp pressed for the appointment of a de partmental committee or a r,~ Commission to inquire into the whole question of the registration of the medical service of the country.

PEARLS MATCH WOMEN'S COMPLEXIONS [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 March 1914

PEARLS • MATCH WOMEN'S COMPLEXIONS The prominence given to pearls by the proceedings in connection with the theft of Mr Max Mayer's necklace, which he valued at £140,000, has called attention to the immense sums paid for these gems. Pearls are now the most fashionable jewels, and women buyers take care to secure a shade to match their complexion (according- to "The Daily Mail"). "Dai-k or yellow pearls," said Mr iMayer, "become dark ■women, while light pearls are worn to better advan tage by women of fair complexion. In recent years the demand for pearls has increased because the ostentatiousness of diamonds and rubies oftei\ offends I the taste. tV woman can easily wear £100,000 worth of pearls in excellent |'ta.vte, but diamonds worth £20,000 I would be very obtrustive."

MAGIC WAND ALHAMBRA MUSICAL DIRECTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 March 1914

MAGIC WAND AL.HAMBRA MUSICAL DIRECTOR. The magic wand—the conductor's baton—at the Alhambra is in new hands (says the Westminster Ga zette"). The magician is Mr John An sell. who' l'or seven years has been conductor for Mr Cyril Maude and latterly with Mr Louis Meyer at the Strand Theatre, and has climbed to the conductor's desk from a subordin ate place in the orchestra. | When, last Saturday afternoon (De I cember 10), Mr; Ansell assumed his new duties, he conducted the Alham bra orchestra and generally took con trol of Alhambra revue and ballet for the lirst time. But the only re spect in which . Alhambra habitues I could observe any difference from l normal happenings was that the prin cipals made a point of bowing nicely —and quite noticeably—to the con ductor upon entering the stage. By the middle of this week even the most observant of critics might have supposed that Mr Ansell had spent his life conducting at the Alhambra. For he commenced with a very great advantage, having...

FOX HUNTING ENGLAND'S OLDEST PACK. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 March 1914

FOX HUNTIN6 ENGLAND'S OLDEST PACK. The Staintondale foxhounds have the reputation of being the oldest pack in the country, it is a claim wliieh does not go unchallenged, even in York shire, but it rests on the authentic ground that a charter was granted by the Norman King Stephen in th*e 12th century to some monks in the monast ery of Staintondale to hunt foxes, hare, and deer on the moors between that ■ place and Scarborough. "I cannot vouch for this remote an tiquity," said Mr Halliday Huggan, of Crumble's Court, Scalby, who, as sec retary of the hunt, speaks with autho rity (says "Lloyd's Weekly"). "The farthest we can go back in actual re cords is the memory tsf an old man of S6, who remembers his grandfaher hunting with the Staintondale hounds. That takes us back to the beginning of the nineteenth century, and there is a song, written in 1811, which commem morates a famous run of that year, so that the hunt can certainly boast a re spectable age. It is a farmers' hunt first and...
