The Power of Love. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 12 March 1910

The Power of Love. , George had been away on business for a whole long week, and . during that time he had sent Clara ten let ters, six letter-cards, and forty-two picture post-cards. Why, then, was there a touch of coldness in her greeting when he re turned? jjearesu ae wuisyeicu» wrong?' '0 George,' she said, 'you didnt send me a kiss in your ninth letter!' 'My precious!' he- replied, 'I re member the occasion quite distinctly. That night I had steak and onions for dinner, and you wouldn't have liked a kiss after onions, would you?' And, such is the unfathomable power of love, she was satisfied, and nestled to him. 'Really, I cannot marry a man who has such expensive tastes.' 'I have no expensive tastes.' 'You have, or you wouldn't want to . marry me.' / ,

GEEVESTON. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 12 March 1910

, GEEVESTON. ; i ? ? (From Our Own Correspondent.) The change in the weather has been welcomed by all. and -was needed for the. orchards as well as for household purposes.

Snakes are prevalent this season, one large black one about 5ft 6in being killed a day or two ago close to the door of a house, and another one of us mean proportions on the main road near the store. ? ^ A rather: amusing incident happened at the tennis court a few evenings since. One of the leading players hit the ball out gicje the enclosure, and' when looking for it he was suddenly seen so jump, at the same* time exclaiming in startled tones, ' A snake !' ' Needless to say, the young man was mistaken, as it was only the ' scratch '' of the bramble, and lie was therefore playing a 'scr...

SQUIRE DICK. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 12 March 1910

SQUIRE DICK. By A. Eckersley. ' As night began to fall, the wind roared round every corner, and screamed louder in the wide chimneys of tne White Lion. A cruel Decern1 berish wind it was, fitter to hearken shudderingly at from within doors than ' to face upon the .open Heath. Even at' nnndnwn rnncocc nf plnnH with a -threat of snow in. their grey solidity, had been spreading along the northern' sky; and now out of the blackness above unseen flakes came fluttering, first in ones and twos, then ever faster in whirling masses, till the roofs of the out-houses, where some beam' from the Inn windows caught them, showed white drifts upon the leeward side of every gable. 'A wild night,' said old Jubb, the landlord, pulling back a corner of one of .his comfortable-looking red cur tains, and peering into the dark. Under his breath he added, 'A fit night indeed for such work as is afoot;' but this sentiment he was careful to keep to himself. ] ' The great kitchen of the White Lion was full of...

BUILDING HOUSES BY THE MILE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 12 March 1910

BUILDING HOUSES BY THE MILE. Under this title there appears in the 'American Review of Reviews' a sketch of 'Roadtown,' a new system of dwelling construction, devised by Mr. Edgar S. Chambless of New York City. Perhaps it may be described somewhat anomalously as a sky-scraper laid on tfo ciHo rPliin en nHrmnus Jimise will provide its tenants with water, heat, light, power, and transportation. A noiseless railroad will take the place of an elevator. By such organisation men will be able to live in the country at the rent now paid for second-rate city apartments, and enjoy all the benefits of electric power, light, heat, gas, hot and cold water, sewerage, ir rigation, vacuum for sweeping power, mechanical refrigeration, telephone, and message and parcel delivery. They will have libraries, schools, churches, theatres. Light farming work will be combined with labor at the city desk. The preparation of food will be by wholesale, and meals will be ordered by special cars from esrving cent...

COURTESY TO SERVANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 12 March 1910

COURTESY TO SERVANTS. Concerning the relations between mistress and maid, there is much that might be said on both sides. Obsei vation teaches that there are unfaith ful and dishonest servants, as well as unreasonable and exacting mistresses. The defective training of the mistress is often the originating cause of much % that is complained of in the servant. The lack of understanding how a piece of work should be done, and the want of consideration in the servant, often lead to dissatisfaction between both parties. 'The mistress who most regards the great democracy of the Golden Rule will probably have the least trouble with servants,' while the mistress who makes her servant feel that she is an outsider or an alien in the family is the one who will be constantly chan ging her help. 'An intelligent servant knows at once whether the atmosphere of the house is one of liberty or one of bond- . - . ? age, or if the service expected of her . is more than equivalent for the wages she is t...

THEIR LEGACY. A Short Tale of Some Money That Came to a Homely Couple Rather Late in Life. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 12 March 1910

THEIR LEGACY. / ? A Short Tale of Some Money That Came to a Homely Couple Rather Late in Life. The heavy hands of the grandfather clock had marked the passing of an hour, and the log on the hearth had burned down to a dull red since hus band or wife had spoken. The man had drawn his chair close to the fire, and, with hands locsely .clasped, sat gazing long and abstractedly, now at the glowing embers, now at the paper which lay folded on his knee. Once or twice he looked across the room to where his wife sat at the bay window. The winter afternoon was drawing to a close, and her head over the sock she was darning in her efforts not to lcee the last fleeting gleam of sunshine. At length he laid down his pipe, and there was a puzzled uneasiness in his glance as it rested on her. But the small head with its neat coil of grey hair, remained bent, and after a mo . ment's hesitation he resumed his gaze into the fire. At length, carefully smoothing out ' the newspaper, he said slowly: 'Well...

OLD FRIENDSHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 12 March 1910

OLD FRIENDSHIPS. Do not allow your old friendships to lapse— too many of us do not cherish our friendships while we have them. We subject them to strains. We un dervalue them as we do all things that - we feel we own. We accept them in a spirit of lethargy or worse, and when the friend is finally driven from us, luu uitcu we put up a, umer piaint : about ingratitude. There are a great many things that a decent, selfre specting friendship will not stand. If we allow ourselves, feeling sure of the devoted chum, to assume the unplea sant fault-finding manner, why should we expect anyone to wish to sit op posite us at dinner and listen to our grumblings? When friends depart — friends that apparently cared for us — it is because we have become unbear able, although this may be farthest from our perceptions. They have sought more cheerful company, and it is right they should do so.

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 http, 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 be 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.' , His father chanced to be at the sta tion as the spoilt child stepped from the train.

ROMANCE OF COAL ANp iron. There is absolutely no limit to tho possibilities which the new * depar ture opens up. Casson, in the 'Ro-' mance of Steel,' tells how in' the Unit ed States it made a thousand million aires in a thousand days. ' Jevons: in nis weii-icnown work on coal, tolls us £°.re ls ''absolutely no limit to the uso ot iron provided it can bo had cheaply enough.' 'Coal,' he adds, 'is the chief material agent of modern civilisation.' About I860 Great Britain raised 60 per cpnt. of the world's coal, now it raises about 2o per cent., and with that fact staring them in the face, politicians talk infinite nothing as to why England is no longer industrially supreme. Up to this Victoria has fought her way as a manufacturing community without coal, without iron of her own. In 1903 sho raised a paltry 113,000 tons of the former, not a ton of the latter. She has been paying 15s 2d for coal. She will have it for 10s 9d; 6s at the pit, 3s 9d La i-^r_ contingencies. She lias m way °...
