Other Universes. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 14 March 1914

Other Universes. ---4-----* (By a Banker.). When we go forth to contem plate the glories of the midnight skies we are apt to forget that that glittering array of scintillating stars which in such. lavish pro fusion so richly gem the canopied vault of heaven, is but. a minute and most infinitesimal portion of the vast stellar universe,. For, in stead of the three or four thousand stars perceptible to the unaided vision, the eagle eye of the tele scopic camera reveals nearly forty million shining orbs in the north ern hemisphere alone. Forty mil lion mighty flaming suns, many vastly more stupendous and more brilliant than our own sun Arcturus is estimated to have a volume equal to more than half a million of our luminary, which though, to us so immense, is but a comparatively insignificant star- each sun doubtless with its at tendant planets, and each planet with one or more revolving satel lites. But sunk far down in the pro foundest depths of the fathomless abyss of illimitable spac...

Cricket. SEASON CLOSING. Interesting Position of Clubs. A Play-off Expected. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 14 March 1914

Cricket. SEASON CLOSING. ,Interesting Position of Clubs, A Play-off Expected, The cricket season for this year is drawing to °a close. As iri other seasons, the grand old game of cricket has been poorly patronised. The average attendance at the best matches this season has been about 10. At Drysdale and Portarlington things are the same. In many matches this season some good cricket has been shown. Drysdale's batting is always the same, and which has won them many a premiership, while Port arlington have only at times proved dangerous opponfents. In our local teams, Artillery have a solid combination of cricket ers. The batting of Pennefather has put out of mind his past failures. He has been at his best, being well supported by Winter and Knell. On the bowling side the last-named player has again proved .himself 'king' of the ball,' having to his credit many fine performances. The cricket of the Engineers has been greatly improving as the sea son advanced. The services of Mortimer ...

Sunday Corner. The world has no place for the uncertain man who hesitates .and is not sure what he': intends :to do. Such men never make a success, either as employer or employed. The Bible is not alone a counsel lor, guide book and friend on the journey of life, and a comforter in the time of trouble, :but the beauti ful poetry, descriptions of war, stories of love, adventure, hunting and nature, are interspersed with such word pictures as ' Sitting in the cool of the day,' and the 'Shadow'of a rock in the 'weary land,' &c. It is a wonderful book to those who read it carefully.

QUEENSLAND'S PEARLING GROUNDS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 21 March 1914

QUEENSLAND'S PEARLING GROUNDS. 0 The pearl fisheries of Northern Aus' tralia are the most lucrative and the least understood of the world's fisheries. The pearling grounds, as they are termed locally, extend along the north-east and northern coasts of Queensland. In years gone by, diving was mostly carried on by naked divers in comparatively shal low waters, but the use of the diving dress is now almost universal. The profits of pearling are enormous. The wages of the divers range from £1 to £2 per month, and a "lay" of £20 on each ton of shell lifted. The diver's tender is paid £4 per month, and the four members of the crew, 30/ to £2 10/. per month. These are the wages the men sign articles at, but comparatively little money is paid, as the crews more often than not "cut out" their wages in "slop chest," viz., goods purchased from the master-pearler, who makes more than 150 per cent. clear profit from this part of the business alone. The pearling boats are worked from a schooner, ...

MARRIAGE CUSTOMS IN HOLLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 21 March 1914

MARRIAGE GOSTUMS IN HOLLAND. A curious old custom still exists in many provinces of Holland. If a young man is in love with a girl, and wishes to ask her hand in mar riage, he goes about it in the follow ing manner, He buys a small s'eet cake, and, wrapping it up in soft paper, proceeds to the house of his inamorata; upon .his arrival, he is ushered into the midst of the family circle; without a word, he walks up to the young lady he wishes to make his wife, and lays the cake on the table before her. The . rest of the family affect not to notice anything unusual, and continue their work, or their reading. The young man turns aside and talks to the father or mother on some very ordinary sub ject, keeping his eyes eagerly fixed on the girl's face while he is conversing., If she accepts his offer, she' takes up the cake and eats it. Sometimes. though Dutch, she is coquettish, -and tortures the young man by turning it over and playing with it, before she decides to bite it, and then en ...

Foul Breath MISFORTUNE FOR MAN OR WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 21 March 1914

Foul Breath MISFORTUNE FOR MAN OR WOMAN, The old saying that "Distance lends enchantment" was never more aptly to the point than when applied to those people whose breath is laden with evil smelling and offensive odours, Many persons appear most attractive at a distance, but produce a feeling of pity and disgust when close to, because of the condition of their breath. For in stance, it makes little difference how beautiful a woman may be, or how charming her manner, if her breath is foul; her charm is gone, and she is at a disadvantage whenever she comes in contact with other people. Foul breath in woman arouses in man a feeling of repugnance and a desire to get out of the company of such a wo man as quickly as possible; and even women will avoid her. It is, there fore, important for every woman who values her personal attraction to take such care of herself that this unplea sant and unnecessary complaint is avoided or corrected. Dr. Morse's In dian Root Pills will be*found a search...
