THE MAN WHO DOESN'T ADVERTISE. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 12 February 1914

THE MAN WHO DOESN'T ADVER TISE. Breathes there a man wtth sour so dead; Who to himself hath never said, "My trade of late is getting bad, I'll try another ten-inch ad." If such there he, go mark him well. For him no bank account shall swell— No angel watch the golden stair To welcome home a millionaire. To such a man the noisy din Of traffic may not enter in, For bargain-hunters by the score Shall pass nor heed his dingy door; For, though his sign is on the wall, And on some barn-yavd gate a scrawl, No people who have cash and sense, Go prancing round to read the fence. The man who never asks for trade By local line or ad. displayed Cares more for rest than worldly gain, And patronage but gives him pain. Tread lightly, friends, let no rude sound Disturb his solitude profound. Here let him live in calm repose— Unsought except by men he owes. And when he "dies, go plant him deep, That naught may break his dreamless, sleep, Where no rude clamonr may dispel' The quiet that he loved so w...

IMPORTANT TO APPLICANTS FOR. MINING LEASES. Applicants for leases within the dis=■ trict covered by "The Upper Murray and' Mitta Hcrahl," are invited to peruse the following facts:— The New Mining Regulations require that, when a lease is marked out, .the applicant "shall insert in a newspaper published in the district where-^he land : is situated, or, if no such newspapers then in the one published nearest tbe district, an advertisement of notice in the form marked A in the schedule pre-r scribed.'.'

DON'T "ROOK" THE PRINTER. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 12 February 1914

DON'T "ROOK" THEXPRINTBftt/, An advertisement is a paper (nans^ marketable commodity, and it is 'quUp as mueii so as a side of bacon, a pound, of butter, or a to a of flour. No man can afford to give away the things- ha sells for a livelihood, and the man who does so in order to get business i3 generally in a bad way. Don't try to put the paper man "in a bad way.;1" But exercise a little human nature:. Support liim; he needs encouragement, and support; but do it in the legitimate way. If the printer gets a few pounds* worth of printing orders from you,.h« is not in a position to give you a pound's worth of advertising for nothing.. And; you have had value for the printing already. Go into a grocer's or draper's, for £3 worth of goods, and the grocer's; man or draper will not throw in gratis. £1 worth of something else that you may aslt for. Try him, if you don't, believe us.

YOU CAN AFFORD IT. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 12 February 1914

YOU CAN AFFORD IT. Very few are too poor now-a-days to take their country paper, and it ts false eco"'"ny to. try and get along without It. Har'dly a weelc passes without there appearing In its columns something or other that will be of financial benefit to the subscriber, who by the end oi , the year has probably made or saved or won twenty times the subscription paid for it. The city papers don't ta!*a the place of the country ones, thougn some people appear to think they do. The city papers are all right in their ■way, but they do not give you that in which you are most interested—yoita country news. You cannot learn from; them when and where your country meetings are to be held—who are dying or who are marrying—who are moving in or who are moving out—court pro ceedings—who wants to buy or sell farm or land produce—in fact,. hun~ dreds of things of which it mighc be o£" particular importance for you to know.

ATTEMPTS TO BRIBE The Smethwick police (says " The Daily Express") have in custody a London man who is charged under the Corrupt Practices Act with approach ing Pennington, captain of the West Bromwich Albion football team, and offering him £55 if he would arrange that the match against Evcrton result ed either in a draw or in a victory for Everton.

FIRES WITHOUT FLAMES Apparatus that will help firemen to overcome difficulties of fighting "Ire without ilames" is to be introduced in London subject to the approval of the County Council (says "The Dally Ex press). The Fire Brigade Committee propose the formation of two special corps of men .who would devote practically all their time to maintaining and using smoke helmet apparatus.

"These are to be manned," add tho committee, "by specially selected men." They suggest that the appliance should ccarry dynamos and portable searchlights, oxygen reviving appara tus, and electric fans for blowing air into places where dense smoke and poisonous gases esist.

RAPID LIFE NO TRUE SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 12 February 1914

RAPID LIFE NO TRUE SOCIETY. Life has become extremely sensa tional and "rapid" on its outer surface; tho women, who were the element cf "quietism" in the generation and generations which preceded ours, hav ing acquired a greater restlessness and a keener appetite for show and move ment than the men, writes Mr H. W. Masslngham in the "Daily News." Spiritual restlessness keeps pace with his physical instability. A cloud of new doctrines, expedients, remedies, enthus iasm, aspirations, and exhalations of the perturbed mind of the age fills the air. It is hard to keep men's minds on ends which they really desire; so ion fused is the Intelligence, and .so per turbed the conscience, of the directing or the enjoying multitude. A certain superficiality and light heartednest. characterise the philan thropies as well as the self-seeking of our times. Politics are becoming singu larly bitter in their expression and highly organised in their form; but the dividing lines of parties are not very ...

IMMORALITY AND TRADE STATEMENT BY SOCIAL PURITY WORKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 12 February 1914

IMMORALITY AND TRADE ? STATEMENT BY SOCIAL PURITY , WORKERS. "We have to regret that the great boom in trade which has, more or less, affected every part of the kingdom in the past year has led to an increase of immorality." This striking state ment occurs in the annual report of the Central South London Free Church Council—Social Purity, Rescue, and Temperance Sections. "Although there .has been a slight increase in the number of prosecu tlons," the report also states, '"wc have been glad to recognise not only an unprecedently small number of discharges, but also a remarkable paucity in the number of defending , solicitors who have ventured their ser vices on behalf of the misdemeanants and criminals who have been charged." Sister Margaret's rescue work con tinues to prosper. For the past v«ar it represents the saving of 68 girls on the brink of ruin and the rescue of <6 from evil living.

CHAPTER VIII. Mrs. Daunce. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 12 February 1914

CHAPTER VIII. Mrs. Daunce. I Without a word to anyone, with out seeking Ronald or leaving a mess age for him to explain her sudden de parture, Gwendolen summoned her chauffeur and returned, to tcrwn. Her maid Cecile liad gone out for the evening, as well as her companion "Dumpie." Only one gloomy man servant seemed at home. She was glad. William, the footman, was evi dently in dudgeon, possibly at having been left guardian of the establish ment while his fellow-servants enjoy ed "a night out," and would be too pre-occupied to notice his mistress's agitation, or ask himself what her un expected return from Lady Emilia's much-talked-of fete might signify. She told him she was retiring for the night, would not require Ceclle when she- returned, and, giving him some orders in a casual tone, 'went to her room, where she enjoyed the lux ury o£ locking everyone out and un dressing herself without her maid's chatter, and freed from her inquisi torial gaze. Then she resorted to a familiar tr...

The Great Montamor Case. By ALICE M. DIEHL, Authoress of <CTho Knave of Hearts," CHAPTER VII.—Continued. "Stop!" cried Gwendolen, fiercely. She was deadly pale. She gasped for breath. "How you, who are no more Lord Montamor than I am, dare to talk as you are talking, shows me that you deserve no mercy from any one, least of all from me—me, who am bound to protect the name of my dead cousin Robert, whom you pre tend to be, ivhom you insult and out rage 'by pretending to he, if it costs me my life. Understand, I hoid docu ments which must bring you to pris on for years—formerly they would have brought you to the gallows. The best thing you can do is to go—go— leaving a confession of your crime as an atonement for your, sin." He had murmured "My God!" as she was speaking. Then had half risen from his seat, on second thoughts sinking back. He looked ghastly, his features drawn and con vulsed. "Madam, you must be mad," he said, staring at her with puzzled ap prehension. "You—h...

BOY IN SIGNAL-BOX ENGINEDRrVER IN TRAP. The report of Lieutenant-Colonel | Drultt, who held the Board of Trade Inquiry into the accident at St. James' Station, Liverpool, on October 15, when six persons were killed and 63 injured by a train dashing into a stationary train, was issued yesterday (says 'The Daily Mail" of December 17). It was stated that at the time of the accident the booking boy in the Cen tral Station signal-box was working the block instruments, and Signalman ~7f. Thompson, mistaking a signal which the boy took, admitted the colliding train. Driver Millward, of the colliding train, had stated that he- ran into the train in front of him wthout seeing anything. (St. James's Station Is a small station in the open between two tunnels.) • Midland drivers, the inspector states, stand on the right hand side of the footplate, and the signals being on the left hand side Millward depended on his fireman to look out for the signals.

WOMEN PLUMBERS [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 12 February 1914

WOMEN PLUMBERS Whllo 86 women are described In the latest census returns in Great Brit ain, as plumbers, it is significant that all but nine are widows. The fact seems to be that of practical women plumbers there are none. The 86 wo men in the census returns are either managing the business of their late husbands or are in partnership with relatives. There is only one woman plumber in the Post-office Directory, and a "Daily ^ News" representative, inquir ing at her place of business at Pim llco, gathered that while she was fully eapable of doing the work of a prac tical man, having learned in the course of many years all that a plumber should know, she was not prepared to undertake the actual manual labor In separable from that occupation. Plumbing Is a man's work. The rep resentative was reminded, and while there are women who are known as decorators, or otherwise connected with trades usually regardd as essen tially occupation for men. It will be found that It Is the men who do th...

ALPINE JOY PARADISE OF SNOWS [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 12 February 1914

ALPINE JOY PARADISE OF SNOWS "Who can forget the seven miles of glacier that he descended in one un broken'motion?" asks Mr Arnold Lunn, In the course of an article in "The CornhlU 'Magazine." "The slope was so even and unchang ing that.ho seemed to be standing still while the valley glided upwards and the bounding cliffs moved by to a stately measure. Then slowly the earth lost its swiftness. There was a slight pressure on the soles of his feet, as the glacier stopped moving and the snows came to rent. But these things must be felt. "I can never look from the windows of a great hotel, out on to the snows of old adventure, without a quickening of the pulse and an over-mastering de- \ sire for the secret and silent valleys where gymkhanas ceaso from troubling and the turkey trots no more. Just as surely as autumn calls the swallow to the south, so the shortening of the days carries a warrant from the white j Paradise whose magic casements reveal ' some vision of ultimate beauty.
