CHAPTER XXVI. The Family Pictures. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 1 October 1914

CHAPTER XXVI. The Family Pictures. "TIk admittance would be just as well p'-rhaps," Heropath said a triilo coldly. "My dear boy, you have just been watching a little comedy of the most brilliant type. It is rather unfortun that you are not in the mood to ap preciate it. Nov:, by my cleverness, backed by the natural astuteness of the Count, I have averted a great scandal —and incidentally saved that excellent Gillispie from a severe wig gins. That diamond is not mine " "I could sec that from the first," Herepath replied. "You arranged the whole thing by signal under the very eyes of the police. It staggored me that they didn't see it." "L'amlace, 1'audace et toujours 1'aiidtice," Ninon quoted mockingly. "My word, your eyes are not so hope less if you could follow all that. But that is another side of the question which we will discuss in due season. In the meantime, please do not run away with the idea that because the blue diamond is not mine therefore it belongs to the Princess. It...

PREACHING PRODIGIES. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 1 October 1914

PREACHING PRODIGIES. Without the slightest sign of ner vousness. and with all the relig ious fervor and enthusiasm of one who has spent many years in tiio pulpit, the 14-year-old sou of the Hev. Chits. Forbes, who lias 'been conducting a mission at the Stratford Tabernacle, preached a striking sermon recent ly. Young Forbes began preaching nt nine, and he has since toured through several American towns. Some of his sermons have been printed and published, while many more have found their way to the hearts of American worLlug-mon. Curiously enough, it was at the Stratford Tabernacle that .Miss Helen Coulthard, who, as "Neliie, the Child Evangelist," has touched the emo tions of thousands, preached last Easter. Miss Coulthard is now twenty years of age, and when she was nine spoke in the open air at a Church Army meeting. Since then her "conversions" have been many. She is a sister of .Miss Libby Coult hard, the 14-year-old millgirl of Bol ton, who has held largo congrega tions spell-...

FOR ALL THAT. ' [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 1 October 1914

FOR ALL THAT. ' It is queer how things go ..by contra* ries here; 'Tis always too cold or tooTiot; And the prizes we miss, you know, always appear . To be better than those that we've got; It is always too wet, or too dusty and dry, And this land is too rough or too flat; There's nothing that's perfect be neath the blue sky, % But— It's a pretty good world, for all that. Some people are born but to dig in • the soil. Ana sweat for the bread that they m eat, While some never learn the hard meaning'' of toil, > , And live on the things that' are sweet; All things go by contraries here up on earth, Life is empty and sterile and flat; Man begins to complain on the day of his birth, But— It's a pretty good world, for^11 that.

LIGHTNING CALCULATORS. Mathematical Marvels. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 1 October 1914

LIGHTNING CALCULATORS. Mathematical Marvels. There is at the present time study ing iit Cambridge one of the most won derful mathematicians the world has ever seen—a young Hindoo, Mr. S. Ranianujan by name—-whoso work, al though lie is only twenty-six years of age, has excited the admiration of all mathematical experts. Perhaps the | most extraordinary thing about Kani [ anujan is that, as a mathematician, he is quite untaught. Until a year ago he was a clerk in the employment ol the Port Trust, of Madras. 15111. in spile of this, lit has, to quote .Mr. Hardy, Fellow of Trinity, who lias taken a great, interest in Hamauujan, "discovered for himself a great 1111111 l''-r of things which the leading mathe maticians of the last hundred years had added to the knowledge of sc.hool inen, although he was ignorant of their work and accomplishments.

Federal Politics. Monday, 21st September. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 1 October 1914

Federal Politics. (From Our Correspondent.) Monday, 21st September. The new Ministry will be a sur prise and a. disappointment to many, for it is by no means as strong as the last Labor administration. The first point which will strike the aver age elector is Uftt preference to un ionists, nominally at least the cause of the recent double dissolution, has been jettisoned by the Labor party. How else can we interpret the fact that King O'Malley, the author of the administrative policy, which Mr. Fisher as Prime Minister tried to water down with the phrase "other things being equal," has been un ceremoniously left out, and only a few days after he had publicly stated that he was a candidate for a seat in the Ministry. Then again Mr. Josiah Thomas, who as Minister for External Affairs notified the man. who /was accepted to go to the Northern Territory in connection with surveying work that If not a member of a recognised union lie must join one forthwith or his ap pointment would termi...

PERILS OF THE DIVER'S WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 1 October 1914

PERILS OF THE DIVER'S WORK. Referring to the death of a diver en gaged , on" the Empress of Ireland wreck,"a writer says that the first sen sation felt when the diver goes down to thirty feet or so below the surface is a singing in the ears. This is. due to the drum of the ear being stretched a little, and this is caused in turn by the fact that the air pressure on the outside has been increased, while that on the inside is kept normal for a few seconds longer by some slight _ ob struction in the Eustachian tube 'con necting the ear with the nose. Ordinarily a diver . may descend quite quickly to the scepe of his work. But he must be very careful how ho comes up, and the longer he remains down the more time must he take iu coming up. The reason is that all the time he is down his blood is absorb ing air. The greater the depth the greater the pressure of the air, and the more of it he absorbs in a given time. His blood becomes a rated like soda-water in a syphon. The air bub bles out...
