THE LAST STRAW. An oleotrio bell rang. Brown sprang, from liia stool and passed into tho chief's room. Tho chief frowned: "Why did not Smith' conic when I rang?" ho asked. "He's not hero to-day, sir/' faltered Brown, standing nervously on one leg j "Another wedding P" asked tho chief grimly. "No, sir—no. Ho is attending tho christening of his sister's firstl>orn,n said lhown, trying to look sentimental. "Oh, indeed! All right, Brown. Just ' file these letters, please."

ALL THROUCH THE ANTHEM. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 24 January 1914

ALL THROUCH THE ANTHEM. A gallant sailor bold was he, but beneath his navy blue serge and baggy, trousers he was a real human being, and holidays appealed to him as much as to the ordinary everyday man. At all events, he was given an after noon oil to go ashore. Somehow or other, however, that afternoon must have been built of clastic, for it was well past midnight ere the mariner ap peared again on the decks of his stout ship. Next morning he stood in front of his commander, a gentleman fierce of mien, and with some nasty questions on the tip of his tongue. "Brown," came the stern demand, "what have you to say?" "Sir," and the pat answer tripped lightly, "yesterday afternoon I set out to come aboard. Arriving1 at the rail way station, I found I had only a minute to spare." "Yes," rapped out the commander. "Just then a band stuck up 'God Save the King,' and I stood to atten tion and saluted until . they had fin ished. "Yes." "Then, sir, by that time the train had gone!" "Same as bef...

THE STORY OF A RINC. in <>no of Mm parks in i.lio .Spanish capital city of Madrid a magnificent ring hangs by a .silken cord about the neck of the statue of the Maid of Al modtmi, tho patron saint, of .Madrid. This ring, though set with diamonds and pearls, is nevertheless entirely un guarded. Tho police pay no at'.ention to il, nor is thoro any pvoxision made for watching it hy special ollieers, be cause il is not believed that any tbiof, however daring, would venture to ap propriate it to his own use, ami when the history of the ring is considered it is hardly lo he wondored at that a superstitious people prefer to givo it a wide berth.

EGGS AND ENERGY. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 24 January 1914

ECCS AND ENERGY. IWo of to-day are moro careful of tho nutritive values of our foods than ( wore our ancestors. Tho stress and strain of modern times entails that duty upon us. Whether wo are health ier or happier is n question. As a food eggs linvo always been valued. It is not generally known, however, that to brain workers and to thoso whoso work demands concentra tion of thoir thinking powers there is no bigger nervo-fooder than the humble egg. Scientists aver that a chemical sub stnnco called lecithin is vitally import ant to tho life of tho nerve-centres. It is tho undue expenditure of this sub stance that causes brain-fag and gene ral nervous collapse. Many nervo specialists proscribe lecithin to their patients, tho doso be ing fifteon grains a day in all. Tho yoke of an avorago sized egg contains sixteen grains of lecithin, so that one egg eaton every day contains sufficient norvo tonic to enable tho functions of tho brain to keen at concert pitch.

WHAT ATTRACTS LOVERS. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 24 January 1914

WHAT ATTRACTS LOVERS. ! An inquisitive scientist once* collected some amusing data as to what attract ed lovers and ended in engagements. Ho posted letters of inquiries to engag ed couples with somo interesting re sults. It would'appear thattlio majority went by the eyes; then, in order of merit, caino stature, feet, brows, complexion, cheeks, shape of head, ' throat, cars, hands, neck, nose, finger nails. There is not much doubt that the eoi or of the eyes is a deciding point, with ■brown an the popular color. Stature should inako a good second., hut finger nails might leave the bottom rung for third position. The fact remains, how ever, that lovo is held in the halanco I by moro trifles. Our illusions fall one after the other like the paring's of fruit; the fruit is experience; its savour may be bitter, still it contains something that strcnethens.

BULK HANDLING OF WHEAT. Interesting Reports. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 27 January 1914

BULK HANDLING OF WHEAT Interesting Reports.

Amongst the many m-.tters which Mr Fiizpatriclc studied whs the marketing of wh'at. Ho formed the opinion that, the "-levator method which provails in the United States and Canada, is vastly superior to the out ol" date bag system whioh survives in Australia. Still he is somewhat cautious in his recom mendations, for he knows that the railways were worked at a loss, and that a Commissioner was brought from America to put them on a business footing. They now pay handsome'y and a Treasurer is naturally pleased to get the big profit they produce.
