HOGARTH'S FIRST SKETCH. [Newspaper Article] — Brighton Southern Cross — 14 March 1914
HOGART'H'S FIRST SKETCH. During this artist's apprenticeship, he set out one Sunday morning with two or three companions on an excursion to ltighgate. The weather being hot, they went into a public-house, where they had not been long before a quarrel arose betwe?n some persons in the same room. One of the dislutants struck the other on the hend with a quart pot, and eut him ecry tauch. The blood running down the man's face, together with the agony of the wound, which had dis torted his features into a most hideous grin, presented HIogarth-who showed himsell thus early, apprised of the maode nature had intended he should pursue-with too laugh able subject to be ovorlooked. He drew out his pencil, and produced on the spot one of the most ludiorous sketches that ever was seen. What rendered this piece the more valuable was that it exhibited the exact like ness of the man, with the portrait of his an tagonist, and the fig.tres in caricature of the prinsipal persons gathered round him.

WOULDN'T PLAY ANY MORE. [Newspaper Article] — Brighton Southern Cross — 14 March 1914
WOtULDN'T PLAY ANY MORN. During the winter of 1862 and '63, os regiment, the 14th-, was in winter quarters near Falmouth, Virginia. The captain of our company was a btl, slim young fellow, about half-boy and half-man, but all man in a battle, as we could all testify. The captain was rather proud, and seemed to be exceedingly sensitive with regard to his antecedents, his father hav ing been a t.sh-peddler, and rumour went so far as to state that the captain, when a boy, had done something in that line himself. Many of the company had known the captain at home, nearly all of them had heard of his previous history, and under stood his feelings regarding it. We were undergoing one of those un accountable inspections, so frequent in all well-regulated armies, and were in "place rest," in our company street, the extreme left of the regiment, while the inspecting officer was inspecting the other companies in their regular order, from the right of the regiment. The members of our regimental...

A (tl~stioni or Time. A story is going the rounds about a lo:cal juryman, an Irishman, who cleverly outwitted a judge, and that without lying. He came breathlessly into court, say tug: "Oh, my lord, if yon can excuse me, pray do!--I do not know which will die first, my wife or my daughter." "Dear me! that's sad," said the inno oent judge; "certainly you are excused." The next day the juryman was met oy-a friend, who in a sympathetic voice asked: "How's your wife?" "She's all right, thank you.' "And your daughter ?" "She's all right, too. Why do you ak ?" "Why yesterday you said you did not mow which would die first!"

The water from these spring is ob tained by divers, who dive to the bot tomi and fill goatskin bags with the cooling liquid and sell it for a living. T'he source of these submarine fount ains is thought to be in the green hill of Osman some 500 or 600 miles away:

Nickel for the World. [Newspaper Article] — Brighton Southern Cross — 21 March 1914
Nickel for the World. In the Copper Cliff mine, near Bud bury, Canada, it is said more nickel is being produced than the entire market of the world calls for at current prices. A little branch railway off the main line of the Canadian -Pacifo Railway, four miles in length, leads out to the mine, which opens into the face of a drag of the brown, oxidized Lauren tian rock characteristic of this region. The miners are now at work at a depth of about 300 feet below the surface.@ As fast as the Iickel and copper-bear ing rock is hoisted out it is broken up ilndp iled.upo blong beds or ricks of ofe'inmr ou x~ftste tfi'tltqnmtrxniOf -,rln? ,,t . . phur:lrhich it contains. tLhe roasting process is of the nature of lime-kilning .or. charcoal-burning.
