THE INTENSIFIER. GENIUS ABSORPTIVE. A VAMPIRE MIND. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 10 April 1908

THE INTENSIFIER. GENIUS ABSORPTIVE.. A VAMPIUR MIND. In n world In which everything Is In its way Interesting, Is uot the man of genius he who Intensifies the thing that is of supremest Importance and value? "Genius is primra'lly a collective func tion, so Georgp Sylvester Viereck claims. He has set forth this concep tion In a fantastic novel. 'The House of the Vampire,* and Maborates it in an article published In 'Der Deutsche Vorknmpfer? This assumption-, he pays, explains why there is hardly a literary Titan against whom charges of plagiarism have! not,. been made. In many ; cases these ?charges have been; substantiated." . | ".Current Literature,M reviewing this book, says:-"It Is suggestive, Mr Viereck opines In connection with this hypothesis, that In the passage of time j the personalities of the greatest poets ; tends to disintegrate into their several! original factors.

NOMINATED IMMIGRANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 10 April 1908

NOMINATED IMMIGRANTS. Ttu: assistance given by tho Govern ment towards the passage-money of immigrants from tho Old Country who are nominated by friends or relatives in this Stato is being very largely availed of. Tlio Intelligence Depart ment reports that the number of immi grants nominated sinco the beginning of the year is largely in excess of the number for the corresponding period of. last year. Over 200 people havo 'been nominated this year, and if tlio present rate be maintained it is con fidently anticipated that last year's .rtTcord will bo eclipsed. The most gratifying, feature of the nomination system lies in the fact that one-half of tho immigrants are nominated by .r.econt.arrivals, and this is regarded as abundant proof that there is' plenty of work available. One man last week laminated no less-than fifteen porsons fyr pasages from Glasgow; and though ho himself has only been resident in the Stato about twelve months, be is now in a position to be able to pay tlio ful...

Racing. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 17 April 1908

Racing-. Br THE OLD 'UK. How often in discussing a horse's chance in a race have we heard the remark "Oh lie can win easy enough, but, what about the man on top ?" Very often there is good reason for the remark ; like all other callings there is a little of all sorts amongst jockeys as regards riding ; good, better, best, and downright bad, boys who should never be al lowed to compete in a race, for though some may not think it. a man may be a first class horseman as regards the ability to stick in the saddle, and yet be an absolute menace to the safety of others in a race through lack of coolness, or as it is generally termed "losing his head." Then again there is the actually dishonest jockey who would take down his own father if by doing so he could Iput a few pounds in his pocket. It is a call ing that renders a jockey boy liable to a lot of temptation. The chances are against him, for if he wins a few races some seem to look upon him as a demigod, how often have I seen men who ...
