Complainant deposed that he had worked for Ah Chee for 12 weeks at L1 per week, and then got the "sack"   without notice and without a reason. Later he went to defendant and asked him for a pound in lieu of a week's notice, but he would not pay him. To the P.M. : Ah Chee complained once about him not digging the ground properly. He said he may as well left it alone as doing it the way he was. Ah Chee said he paid defendant all right. He went away for ten days and then come back and say he want L1.

What do you give Baby for his Cold ? Foolish mothers dose their babies with home-made concoctions or something recommended by a neighbour, and perhaps upset the little stomach and make the baby cross and uncomfortable by this mistaken economy. Wise mothers do not experiment with untried nostrums, but depend on a remedy which has been compiled from the scientific prescription of a famous physician, and is designed to cure the cold without upsetting the digestive organs. ' Dr. Sheldon's New Dis covery is this remedy, and mothers may give it to their babies, secure in the knowledge that coughs and colds will no longer rack the little bodies. For Croup, it has the most wonderful results. Whooping Cough is cut ehort by the use of Dr. Sheldon's. New Discovery. For all the family ills resulting from throat, chest or lung complaint, the mother's resource is Dr. Sheldon's New Discovery. Dr. Sheldon's New Discovery is the quickest, safest, and best-known remedy for Coughs, Colds, Pleurisy, Br...

"Terribly oppressive," said Captain Beresford with a nervous glance at the leaden .sk.V above their heads, as lie drove Ida Hamitlon at a rapid pace through the leaf lanes of Hampshire. His nerves had already been upset by his thoughtless question, and a vague feeling of dread oppressed her more than the want of azone in the atmos phero. "The beauty of the day lias gone," slid said with a sigh; "and it was so lov-ely when wc started.'3 > "In my opinion, I have come to the^ best of it now," looking down into her /ace with admiration mixed with a dash of insolence; '"what a lucky chance it was for 1110 that your aunt lost , her smelling-bottle.''

HIS NEXT QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 21 May 1914

HiS NEXT QUESTION, 1 On one occasion, wlicn an Eastern potentate was the guest of English Royalty, he was taken to Epsom to see the Derby run. The dusky' ruler noted the enthu siasm when some thoroughbred in a close finish beat his rivals. He was quite curious about it. "Why are the people making all the noise ?" he asked. "Why, don't you see that has won the Derby ?" answered one of his English companions. Then with gravity observed the Oriental : "Were they not already aware that one horse can run faster than an other ?" The Emperor of Austria is rather given to boasting that to the plain manner in which he has always lived he owes his excellent health and long life. His Majesty is quite con tent with milk and -porridge for his breakfast, and although o somewhat elaborate menu is prepared for luncheon when other members of the Austrian royal family arc present,, the Emperor is usually satisfied with a little cold poultry, followed by cheese, of which he is very fond.

FORGETTING THE TUNNEL. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 21 May 1914

FORGETTING THE TUNNEL $. A story of the early clays of the Belgian railways has recently been told. It describes what the Belgian engineers did when they came home from England with sheaves of sketches, plans, specifications, anc particulars about "the new English travelling road," to build one like it in the Low Country. They made their first railway a cross the Hats between Brussels and Liege, and when it was finished, on almost the very day before it was to be opened with pomp and circum stance. the chief engineer, looking at his English plrvis and comparing them with his own substantial achie-j veinent, suddenly struck his forehead, with a tragic gestur-.-, and cried,! "Tilon Dieu, we've forgotten the tun nel !" A railway without a tunnel could| not be a railway, they thought ; so | tliey contrived to cover in the deepest cutting they could find !
