SHOCKING RAILWAY ACCI DENT AT MURTOA. THREE PERSONS KILLED. The community of Murtoa was shocked on Saturdny night by the occurrence of a terrible accident on the railway line. It appears that Mr. James Wm. Ferry, line repairer, who has resided for about a year at the second gate-house, some three and a-half miles out, near Jung Swamp, visited Murtoa with his wife and two children—a boy aged three years and a girl sixteen months—on a railway tricycle, to do some shopping. About 10.30 they re turned to the railway station to go home, and there found that a goods train was ready to depart for Horsham, and that a light engine from Stawell was coming along afterwards and would be leaving forDimboola at 70.40 to meet the express train carrying the English mails Believing that they could reach their home before the engine caught them, and fearing to be delayed by the Melbourne express train which was due at Murtoa at 11 20, Ferry decided to push on at once.

What Would Happen if the Earth Turned Faster. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 16 January 1914
What Would Happen if the ! Earth Turned Faster. It has been calculated that if the earth were to rotate eighteen times as fast as it does now a man at the equator would weigh nothing ' and that if lie jumped in the air he would remain there. The man weighing nothing at the equator I would weigh 200 pounds at the [poles, and varving weights between I the poles and the equator. There ' are no planets that turn eighteen times as fast as the earth/ but there are some where tho force of gravity is entirely different to what it is j here. On the moon the .average man would weigh no more than fifty pounds, it has been estimated, and ! could jump as many feet—that is, fifty feet—without trouble. This, however, would happen on any part of the moon, not because of tho centrifugal force, as would bo tho case if uJe were spinning about eighteen times faster, but duo to a lack of gravitativo force on tho moon". Measuring labuur from our pre sent standards, a labourer would have to recoivo enormo...

CHAPTER XIIIv It is now time for ug, whether it' suits our inclination' or not, to/ ro move ourselves from tho perfumed at mosphere breathed by Mildred Moore and her two adorors, and return to those who arc ccrtainly more worthy of our regard, and who have been neglected through no fault of their own.

CHAPTER XIV. i From that day the patient was a changed man. All the gentleness was ! gone. He would no longer apply him | self to study. He spent the entire j day in an exhausting and fruitless ■ search after—something. J • He slept lit.tle at night. He tossed and muttered inarticulately, and i grew thinner and whiter. The eyes ! that iiad been so calm now grew at times wild and vengeful, they would j seem to be peering of! into space, as j if looking, for something not within ] reach. He -would stand.- for- minutes at a time, pondering with knit brow over some thought that was puzzling his brain, and then would shake his head and resume whatever occupa tion he had been engaged upon. If he passed Helen in the 'hall, or on the stairs, he would lay his white thin hand on her arm, and peer curi ously into hei; face with such an un utterable longing that she would fre quently burst into teal's. He would listen to the conversa tion of those around him, and would seem to be striving to co...
