The deceased lady had been a sufferer for some time with a heart affection, and was under the care of Dr Shanasy, of Nhill, who had always been able to give relief, but a fortnight ago, with the doctor's consent, her husband look i her toB^thesda hospital in Richmond and placed her under the care of Dr McColl.

LONDON FOG TROUBLESOME PROBLEM. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 23 January 1914
LONDON FOG i i troublesome problem. The fog In London the other day (says the "Daily News") was an un pleasant reminder that the city Is still far from having Its fair share of day light and fresh air. In the last twenty years there has been a surprising improvement, the average number of foggy days In the winter having been reduced from 30 to 10, and the hours of bright sunshine Increased from 55 to 93. but there Is still the deplorable fact that London in the winter can be a more depressing and dirty place than any other city In the world. In spite of the encouraging- advance there are still too many days when the Londoner has to go about his business with tingling eyes and choked lungs, and has to turn on the light when the sun should bt> shining through the win dow. "Whether London will ever be en tirely free from fog is very doubtful. The probability seems to be that there will always be fogs, but that they will gradually become less freciuent and less black, till in the end...
WHISTLER'S HONESTY OBJECTION TO "FAKE." [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 23 January 1914
I I , WHISTLER'S HONESTY OBJECTION" TO "PAKE." "I'll have a clean plate," said Whlst ■»r to Sir Frank Short, the distin ' ulshed painter-etcher, now President •' the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers •id Professor of Engraving in tho oyal College of Arts, on whose press nme of the finest etchings of the fa ■lous "Thames set" were printed. "What was good enough for Rem •-andt is good enough for me," Whistler added. "I'll have my line as 1 ■nade it" The reference was to the "smudge" effect which was obtained 1 'n engraving prints by leaving ink on •»ie plate. The preference for "a clean I late" was characteristic of the great I vtist's implacable honesty. Sir Frank old his story In the course of his lec ture on "Etching and Engraving" at the Victoria and Albert Museum last night (says "The Westminster Ga zette" of November 28). Rembrandt's work, the lecturer said, contained the whole gamut of etching, and was still, >nd would remain, the great landmark >f the art.

TWO WOMEN. From Mrs. M. Darcy, 103 St. Leonard's-road, Ascot Vale, Vic toria. "Some years ago, I began to suf fer from various liver and kidney troubles, arising no doubt from a -evcre cold I contracted about that *ime, and which nearly prostrated me. From thence on I experienced acute pain in the back and sides, and under the shoulder blades. The slightest pressure on the liver would cause me intense pain. I suffered like this for a long while without any prospect' of relief, I having tried so many re medies without avail. As a last re i source I decided to try a course of ' Warner's Safe Cure, which had been highly recommended to me by friends who had derived great benefit from taking the medicine. After taking a few bottles of Warner's Safe Cure my health improved rapidly, and I was soon effectually cured and free from all the pain and discomfort which has assailed me for so many years." From Mrs. Eva Sharrer, 24 Hanover street, Windsor, Vic. " Some years ago I was taken with vio...
PERFORMING ANIMALS TESTIMONY OF ACTORS [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 23 January 1914
PERFORMING ANIMALS TESTIMONY OF ACTORS The discussion of tho question of the treatment of performing animals has naturally aroused considerable in terest among our readers, with the re sult that the contents of our letter-bag havo been materially increased (says "Westminster Gazette" on November 20). Colonel .T. G. Hawker calls attention to the current month's issue of the "Animals' Guardian," in which Mr Mark Melford, the well-known com edian, and Mr C. E. Haverly, an actor of thirty years' experience, testify to the fact that the most horrible tor tures in very many Instances are in flicted up on performing animals. Mr Melford contends that talk alone will not stir tho pulse of the public, and columns of press agony will fall to raise an eyelid, lot alone a hand to help. It is necessary for tho public to be convinced by ocular demonstration that cruelty exists, and then judgment and' punishment will quickly follow. And as a consequence, to quote his own words, "the infernal master...
NEWS ONCE A YEAR WORLD'S LONELIEST MISSION. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 23 January 1914
NEWS ONCE A YEAR WORLD'S LONELIEST MISSION. Half the staff of what is perhaps the loneliest mission station in the world Is spending a brief furlough, in Eng land. That half-staff is the Rev. S. M. Stewart, of the Colonial and ConUnen tal Church Society, whose permanent address is anywhere in Ungava, the great icebound provinc'e between La brador and Hudson's Bay—a thousand^ miles further from civilisation than the scene of Grenfell's work in Labrador. The extent of his remoteness from the ordinary twentieth contury world may be gauged by the fact that letters .are delivered in Ungctva once a year (says the "Daily Mail" of November 27). WHEN THE SHIP COMES IN. "Tho most anxious moment of the yoar," said Mr Stewart, "is when the Hudson Bay Company's vessel from England is sighted, and we are waiting to know whether she brings us good news or ill. A few years ago my fur lough was nearly due, and I was look ing forward to getting back to see my old father in Ireland. Then the ship came...

CHAPTER VII. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 23 January 1914
CHAPTER VII. Queenic—thank God youve comer choked Beryl. It was past ten o'clock, night time, an&lt;I Beryl, hearing a cab draw up. had hurried down to the front door. "How's mother?" asked Queenie. She was the colour of death, and was carrying her valise. . She was wearing the dress she wore that afternoon in the assize court at Stilchester. It was all like a blurred nightmare, people with shadowy figures; her most distinct memory that of a kind, mo therly woman, who had helped her from the court, put her into a cab, driven her to the single room she had taken in Stilchester,' had promised to sec Mr. Palmer and give all messages and a note to him, and, after the writing of a note, had driven her in a cab to the station. " How's mother?" "Oh, Queenie," Beryl was sobbing now, " so bad—we're not allowed in the room—two doctors—and they had to send for oxygen—they're giving mother oxygen now. As soon as Michael—Mr. Thorne—heard he telephoned to Har Iey-street for a specialist 1...
The Heart of a Girl. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER VI. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 23 January 1914
The Heart of a Girl. By HENRY FARMER, Author of 'The Money-Lender,'' "12a Quiltry. Street," "Bondage," etc. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER VI. ■Witnesses had been examined and cross-examined. Medical experts, call ed respectively for the defence and the prosecution, had flatly -disagreed on the symptoms of the after effects of cer tain narcotics. Bank clerks and offi cials had gone into the figure side of the case. A famous maker of safes and strong rooms had given expert evi dence. Police and detectives had gone over the old ground, but more minutely than before the magistrates. Every effort had been made to trace Roy Stannard: the description furnished by the prisoner had been more widely cir culated, and the bank had offered a re ward; but the man seemed to have van ished into thin air. The defence had failed to produce a single witness to prove such a man's presence m Hasted on the night of the crime, as apart from the prisoner's uncorroborated statement. The roomy assize court ...

TANGO'S IDEAL STEPS [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 23 January 1914
TANGO'S IDE AD STEPS An effort to standardise the infinite variety of steps of the Tango, the new dance which has conquered London, is being made by the new Princess' Tanfjo Club. The six ideal steps out of the 200 of the dance—el paseo (the walk), el corte (the waltz-step), the scissors, the half-moon, the parade, and el vetso (the variegated step)—were exhibited by Pete and Petita, from the London Opera House (says the "Daily Mull";. Their rendering of the dance is that favored by Bayo, the Parisian teacher, reputed the master of the art. Among those present were Lord and Lady Ten terden, the Hon. Conyngham and Mrs Denison, Sir John Campbell and the Marques and Marquesa de Sarzano. The club, which is a private one limited to 200 members, will hold weekly dances at Prince's.
LOVE, AMOUR, LIEBE. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 23 January 1914
LOVE, AMOUR, LIEBE. No word in tlie English language is used so often from tlio pulpit as the word "love," bub this cannot be said of the use of "amour" in Franco, or of "Liebe" in Germany._ Natious pour themselves'into the tiny moulds of words auil give us statuettes 01 themselves. Tlio Anglo-Saxon, the Latin, and the Teuton have filled tlieso ihree words with a certain vague phil osophy of themselves, a hazy, compo site photograph of themselves. No one writer or painter, no one incident, no one tragedy no day or year of his tory has done this. To us, love is the coldest, cleauest, as it is perhaps the most loyal of tlio tliroo L'Amour.sound? to us seductive; enticing—often, indeed little more than lust embroidered to make a cloak for ennui - Liebe is to us friendly, soft, childlike.—Price Col lier, in "Soribner's Magazine."
IRISH SCOTS. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 23 January 1914
IBISJI SCOTS. ! It is to Ireland rather than to Scot i laud that we musi look for -the first establishment of the clan system, al though this is a fact that Joes not seem to be Unt vvn to the general ivorld. There has . )>een no Walter Soott to write romantic novels to attract at tention to the glories of the Irish elan feuds and ambitions. But the very name of Scots is Irish, and Ireland was Scotia, or the land of the Sco:s, and it was only another immigration of Celts from Ireland to Scotland that gave modern Scotland its name. Tne Scots from Ireland caiuo there, driving before them through force of numbers, and no doubt also through the native ohaim of the Irish, or Erse, "the ten ants iu possession," the poor Picts, ot whom so little is now said or heard. The Picts of Alban," as the Irish or Scots called the country now known .is bco'Jand, were not so much conquer ed by warriors as absorbed and convcr I ted to Erse ways by missionaries hse Columbia.— -The Duke of Argyll, in U...
