RETURN TO ROMANCE COOMBE. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 25 March 1914
RETURN TO ROMANCE COOMBE. - (By Eden Phillpotts in "The Daily News and I>aaer.") 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 ...
He Gave Him a Tip. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 25 March 1914
He Gave Him a Tip. A Lancashire tradesman was one day busy at his desk, when a poor, broken-down-looking man came and asked for relief. The tradesman refused him, and or dered him out of the place. The man, however, persisted, saying that for sixpence he would tell him something which might some day bu of great value to him. Thinking the man might know some thing which it would pay him to know, he gave the man the sixpence. Tne man looked round to see that no• one was within hearing, then whis pered in his ear: "Iv iver tha' gets i' gaol, an' 'as to pick oakum, try thy teeth on't and you'll find it easy. I've tried it mesel", and tell you this tip is worth a pot o' money."

WOMAN'S LOOP IN AIR "A WHIRLING DELIGHT" [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 25 March 1914
WOMAN'S LOOP IN AIR \ "A WHIRLING DELIGHT" The first woman to loop the loop in the air (says "The Daily Mail" of January 2) is Miss Trehawke Davies, who experienced this thrilling sensa tion yesterday as a passenger with ,Mr Gustav Hamel at Hendon Aero drome. Miss Trehawke Davies is also the first passenger to loop the loop in England. In looping the loop the airman as cends to a considerable height and dives vertically for some distance, then suddenly bringing his machine back to the horizontal and forcing its nose upward until the pilot is upside down. The machine then completes the circle and returns to its normal position after a further dive. Before taking up Miss Trehawke Davies Mr Hamel looped the loop seven times to test his machine—an 80 h.p. Morane-Saulnier monoplane. Then, with Miss Davies, he climbed to a height of over 1000ft. and described a perfect loop, descending about 300 ft. At the top of the second loop the machine began to plane down on its back, but Mr Hamel ha...
A VALUABLE DISCOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 25 March 1914
A VALUABLE DISCOVERY. While making an inspection of the Church of Saint Giulano, Venice, an nlficial of the Commission of Public Works found in a corner of the cam panile a great roll covered with dust and spiders' webs. The roll was open ed with care, and it was found to con sist of a dozen paintings which had been removed from the church by the rector in 1830. Among the paintings was one by Tintoret, and some of the others were by Palma the younger. It seems' that the rector suffered from a mania for "beautifying," and he re moved the pictures to fill their places with slabs of white marble. All the works are fully described in Francesco Sansovino's work on Venice, but the whereabouts of the paintings had for long been a mystery. Dr. Blank, a professor in the Uni versity of Virginia, was on the eve of a trip to Europe, to be absent two years. In pathetic and rather harrow ing tones he made his farewell ad dress to the class: "Yes, I am about to part from you. This is more than dis...

WAFER OFFENDS WITNESS DAMAGES AWARDED [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 25 March 1914
WAFER OFFENDS WITNESS [ DAMAGES AWARDED Mr John Charles Gurr, a pensioned police sergeant of Sunbury, was awarded £25 damages in the Law Courts yesterday (says "The Daily Ex press," December 6) in his libel action against Mr John Henry Scott and Mr Daniel Collins, also of Sunbury. The statements complained of were con tained in circulars charging Mr Gurr with having held up to ridicule the Eucharist wafer. The jury also returned a verdict for Mr Gurr on Mr Scott's counter-claim for damages, but as the judge had left the court judgment was not entered Mr Albert John Bovay, a retired Civil servant, of Teddington, who was the first witness yesterday, said he was a member of the Church of England, and attended St. Alban's Church, Ted dington. "In August, 1909," he added, "Mr Gurr attended a meeting at Tedding ton and alluded to the fact that Father Stanton was going to preach at St. Alban's, producing a large and a small wafer. The large wafer fell to the ground, and Mr Gurr said, 'Mind...

CENTRAL & WEST GIPPSLAND RIFLE GLUBS' UNION. ANNUAL PRIZE MEETING, 1914. OFFICIAL, SCORES. The annual prize meeting in con nection with the Central and West Gippsland Rifle Clubs' Union was held at Moe on the 25th, 26th and 27th' of last month. Complete re turns are just to hand, being much later than usual, owing to the Sec retary, Mr Jno. McKenzie, suffering from illness. Ideal weather prevailed throughout the whole shoot, with only an occasional puff of wind to cause marksmen any trouble. 'As a result of almost perfect conditions some exceptionally fine shooting re sulted, particularly over the 500 yds, range, twelve bulls-eyes in suc cession Jbeing credited to W, John stone, of Trafalgar, while a number of others'ran well over the possible. The attendance was slightly below that of last year, due largely to the presence of bush fires in-many parts of the district. Although some of the most prominent shots in the Union failed to maintain their repn tation for consistency,...
BIBLICAL LABOR OF THE BENEDICTINES. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 25 March 1914
BIBLICAL LABOR OF THE BENEDICTINES. It is expected that when the Orde« of Benedictines has completed the re vision of the Latin Bible on which it is now working, the Koman Catholic Church will have as accurate a trans lation of the sacred books as is pos sessed by any Chriatiah'-Church. The task which the Pope set -for. the revis ers is the recovery, so . far as pos sible, of the Latin version made by Saint Jerome in the third # century. Jerome naturally had access'w more and better copies of the original Scrip tures than are now in existence. It is assumed that his- version must have been better than those translations made at a later tiipe, and-better, even than those' Greek and . Hebrew ver sions that have been copied time aftei time and are full of the errors of the copyists.. The Latin Bible. now in use in the Catholic Church was published in 1593 by Clement the Eighth, after a commission had labored on it for forty years. The new commission of Bene dictines has been at work ab...
