A Practical Christmas. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 22 December 1916
A Practical Christmas. SINCE the Christmas number of "Every lady's Journal1'-that popular magazine for the women of Australia and New Zealand-is issued during the first week of December, the editor has an oppor tunity of advising his readers on the hundred and one problems that crop up during the festive season. "Everylady's Journal" advises that this year, our Christmas should be marked by sober mindedness and practical economy rather than by the usual merry making and open-handedness. The reasons for this are too obvious to need repeating. In support of this advice the journal devotes many pages to practical hints in pre paring Christmas fare, arranging en tertainments, constructing Christmas gifts in the home instead of buying them, and indulging in a period of home dressmaking. Special Christmas stories, articles, and verses are contributed by Chas. Nuttall, Dr. Fitchett, Madame Melba, Miss Mary Card, and others. Altogether, this number of "Every lady's Journal" may be regarded ...

DISTRICT NEWS. TAWONGA. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 22 December 1916
DISTRICT NEWS FROM OUR CORRESPONDENCE TAWONGA. HARVESTING operations are now in full swing, and farmers generally are making hay while the sun shines. Those en- gaged in milking have no reason to fear a shortage of grass, which is everywhere abundant. Trout fishing is very popular here now, and many anglers are quite expert in handling this elusive denizen of the fresh water. Last season many lovers of this pastime came long distances in search of sport, and almost all cases were rewarded for their energy and enterprise. With each succeeding year the fish increase, and as the Kiewa River is an ideal one for fish of the trout family, Tawouga will, no doubt, in the near future gain wide fame. &nbsp; Residents are anxiously awaiting some departmental decision regardiug the bridge over the river at Ryder's lane, and those, at the " Red Bank " are also concerned as to when a reply will be given them. The . shire council has pledged itself to build this bridge, and no doubt when a...

WHY YOUR HAIRS STND ON END. Some Queer Physiological Facts Explained. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 5 January 1917
[WHY YOUR HAIRS STND ON END. 1 Some Queer Physiological Facts Explained. Thousands of years ago man in his savage state, who was better able to control his muscles than modern man, bristled his hair out in order to look fierce and dangerous. Our ancestor.3 fluffed their hair out in order to keep out the cold, and to this day the hairs of man stand on end when the body is exposed to cold. That is the real reason why we get "goose flesh." When our "hair stands on end," our "flesh creeps," or we get "goose flesh," the muscles which are situated under the skin contract and cause the tiny blood vessels or capillaries to contract and drive the blood out. Naturally the skin becomes white. It is then that we are "ghastly with fright" and "white to the lips." As the blood vessels and muscle;; contract so the skin tightens, pulling the hairs which cover the skin up straight. That is exactly what happens to the hair of the head when it "stands on end." We might even call it "goose flesh of the...

A Broad Hint. A gentleman visited the house of a friend. The butler, an Irishman, acted very kindly towards him. He waited upon him at dinner, brushed his clothes, and saw him into his carriage. The gentleman, who was very miser ly, never offered to tip him, so, as a reminder, Pat said to him: "Faith, sor, if ye lose your purse on the way, remember ye didn't pull it out here." Books are a great help to a man, especially if they are bank or cheque books. Lady tells how she restored hair to natural color that had been grey for years. A lady writes:-"I find this home made preparation unequalled as a powerful stimulant to the growth of the hair, and for restoring it-not dye ing it-to its natural color.

CHAPTER XXIX. Clintock Explains. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 5 January 1917
CHAPTER XXIX. Clintock Explains. The man with the scarred face, his | head in bandages,' was sunk in an ; armchair by the dining-room hearth, j Philip Mayne, nonchalantly smoking (a cigarette, lounged against the table. He was an athletic young man, and was pardonably proud of having got the better of the most skilful wrestler he had ever encountered. "Clintock knows that Ramleigh is t dead," whispered Skipton, supporting | Franklin to a chair. "He has taken it badly to heart. You'll understand why, presently." The injured man looked up at Franklin a moment, and then dropped his eyes again, and spoke in calm, level tones. "You wonder why I've been so desperately against you and Mr. Bul ton," he began. "There's no danger to anyone in telling you now, for I don't care what happens to me. I must pay the penalty. Alfred Ram leigh is beyond the petty persecu tions of his enemies, and the world lias lost its greatest man-just that. Ho wanted nothing for himself. He only wanted to confer a...
CHAPTER XXVIII. Diana Explains. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 5 January 1917
CHAPTER XXVIII. Diana Explains. "What is going on?" said the new comer, sharply. "The police are here," retorted Frank, under his breath. "Keep quiet, whoever you are, and lend a hand it you like." "Oh! it's a man-hunt?" "Yes. And here he comes," he add ed quickly. There was a warning cry from Skip ton, further up the road, and a man came running towards them. He hesi tated when he realised that escape was barred towards Rockhurst. But with stone walls on either side of him, and enemies in his rear, he did not hesitate long. There was a flash in the darkness, and Franklin spun round and tell, with a sharp, fiery pain in his shoulder. He was up on his knees in an instant. The stranger, who had accosted, him under the wall, was struggling .with the man who had fired the shot, and the. struggle was a savage one so far as Franklin could see. But something; warm was running down his arm, and bathing his hand. He sickened, and his head swam. He sank back on the dusty road, and Skipton, hi...

CHAPTER XXVII. A Race for Life. "Hickson," said the detective sol-' emnly, "you may have to face a I charge of attempted murder unless | you can explain matters to me. When i you sent us to those farm buildings to day did you know they had been con demned to serve as a target for shell fire?" j The old man stood with his head bowed, twisting his hands together. It seemed to be with an effort that he threw his mind back to the events of the morning. "I scarcely knew what I did, gentle men," he said. "My only wish was to turn you from coming here." Instinctively, he fell into the quiet, respectful manner of the well-bred ser vant. "I'm sorry, sir," he went' on, "if there was a mistake. But, you see, it was due to Mr. Clintock. He'tl been away in London, and came home by an early train, cycling out here from Salisbury. 'Hickson,' he said, 'they're coming. You must put them off, keep them off, while I persuade the master to leave here till this blows over.' He always called him that 'th...
