One of them, a boy of eight, said in the deliberate manner peculiar to him, "Miss Hum phreys" (the nursery governess), "I want to see the ghost, will you call me at 12 o'clock ?" No one thought of refusing this hoy things, some how, so at five minutes to twelve she went to his bedroom.

Lanpr ajpita Yeefr Yesterday js nut long ago but twelve years is.' To have been cured long ago and to have been well ever since surely means a permanent euro Here is what a Tenterlield lean has to say about it. Mr. .lolin Luiuax, Douglas .Street, Tenterlield, says : " I got symptoms of kidney disorder some years ago, just after I had low fever. It eamo on in the form of backache, and I took to wearing flannel. bandages, which 1 blame for making me worse.

Rabbit Destruction. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 March 1914
At :i large meeting of landholders at Deepwator (says the " .Dispatch ") it was decided to form a Rabbit Des truction Association. Mr. R. 0. A. Ilobertson, during the course of his remarks said lie was not in favor of paying a bonus, and beilcved in the poison cart. Thev had a poison cart at Wellington Yale, and each time the cart went out nOO rabbits were destroyed.- At that rate all their revenue would soon be exhausted. In his opinion the only way was to wire net. It was costly, yet the only way As matters now stood they were pra ctically paying the P.P. Boards for nothing. In this .district, the un occupied Crown lands were only breed ing grounds for noxious animals. Shire Councils and P.P. Boards should destroy blackberry and other cover and not leave these breeding grounds right at the door • of landholders. He had written to the. Shire Council and P.P. Board, but only received sympathy. If the diff erent holdings were netted and poison carts used they could then cope with the...
Celebrated Artist's Model. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 March 1914
Celebrated Artist's EUlodel. When Sir John Millais was en- I gaged upon his picture, "The North- , West Passage," now in the Tate j Gallery, he was unable to find a ' suitable model for the old mariner | —one man only, Trelnwney, the for- | mer friend of Byron and Shelley, I realising his ideal. I On being approached by the ar- ' tist, the old gentleman guve n, flat ! refusal, whereupon Lady Mallais ! undertook to try her powers of per suusion. For a time Trelnwney was adamant, but at length was so far won over as to agree to sit, conditionally on the artist's wife taking a certain number of baths at a Turkish baths establishment in which he had a pecuniary interest. To this Lady iMalluis agreed, with the result that Shelley's old friend is depicted in the canvas. There is, however, an amusing se quel. In the picture ihe weather beaten sea-dog is shown with a glass of grog at his'elbow, a realistic touch which gave mortal offence to the irascible model, who, a strict teetotaler hims...
The Indian Bearer. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 March 1914
The Indian Bearer. Tf there is one thing more then an other essential to the Knglishman in India it is his bearer. A bearer, be it known, is a per sonal servant somewhat akin to a valet at home. He is supposed to look after one personally, but one is often inclined to think that this is a secondary consideration, his principal occupation being to dis gorge commission from all and sun dry on every imaginable thing— oneself included, For instance, your sugar and tea are disappearing very rapidly, and as he lias two wives, ten children, and 12 rupees (ltis.) per month, one naturally has suspic ions. On being accused, he assumes an air of injured innocence, and un less you have definite proof you feel that you are a very unjust man. Having definite proof, how ever, he is finally "cornered," when he will calmly tell you that unless he is allowed to rob you he will leave your service. When one gets experience it is found to lie .much the 1 ictter plan to allow him, within hounds, to Irnve...
A Novel Calling. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 March 1914
fi Novel Calling. A novel wiiy of augmenting u mea gre weekly wage was that of a man who was in the habit of buy ing old portmanteaux and trunks. He found numbers of people glad to dispose of them when they got shabby or a bit out of repair, and frequently obtained them at a very low price indeed. After undergoing a little renovating at his hands they were ready for sale. By means of a cheap advertisement he succeeded in fmdinjf easy sale, for these serviceable articles. During the long holiday . season the demand was the great est, then sometimes he could have sold more than he could supply. j lie found it a remunerative busi ness, for, owing to his being able to procure them at a very cheap rate, they carried a good profit. Tn renovating them he was very care ful not to remove the labels, for he found that he could make shillings more of. a portmanteau or bag well pasted over with foreign and pro vincial railway labels to both men and women who possessed a weak ness for posing as ...

Throwing Dice for "Victory." DRAMATIC ENDS OF GREAT WARS. When Fernando VII. died of apo plexy one September day in 1833, his death was the prelude to one of the most sanguinary dramas which even Spain has ever wit nessed. For seven years the coun try was deluged with blood, and laid waste by fire. It was divid ed into two huge armies, one seek ing to win the throne for lion Carlos, the dead King's brother, the other equally resolute to pre serve the Crown for his infant daughter, Isabella. Forward and backward the tide of war flowed and ebbed-until at last Marato leader of the Carlist forces, realising that his task was hope less with an army demoralised by hardships and heavy losses, turned his thoughts towards an honour able peace. One morning he rode alone into the enemy's camp, abd asked to be taken to General Es partero. Drought face to face with him, he coolly proposed that they should throw dice for victory. His suggestion was accepted in the spi rit in which it was made ; t...
