Mirboo South. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 2 April 1914

Mirboo South. The member for the district, Mr T. Livingston, M L.A., visited this part of his constituency at sports time, and was ; cordially received by his supporters. The question of the site for the new school building was brought under his notice, and the residents are sanguine that ihis matter will be attended to in the near future. It is contemplated at an early date to form a tennis club. This pastime is one that should appeal to the young ladies and gentlemen of the district, and it would be well if those who have the furtherance of the proposed club in view would at once band themselves together and have everything ready lor a start before the winter months are on us. The unfinished state of the fencing enclosure should be pushed ahead at once and a good solid floor prepared. Of course this will cost riioney, out surely the young ladies will be able to make those of the sterner sex foot the bill. Therefore, they should be up and doing to secure an outdoor amusement in whi...

The Ceylon Silk Swindle [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 2 April 1914

The Ceylon Silk Swindle Edwin Percy Liddie, who had been convicted on a charge of obtaining money by means of false pretences, was called up for- sentence before Judge Murray at the Sydney Quarter Sessions on Monday. Evidence was given at the trial to the effect that Liddie, by re presenting, in an advertisement publish ed throughout the Commonwealth, wiih the exception of New South Wales, that he would sell ten yards of silk for 2S 6d, obtained a large number of postal notes, money orders and stamps, but it was maintained that he did not intend to carry out hi1: part of the agreement. MrTeece, who appeared for Liddie, asked that he be dealt with as a first offender, but Judge Murray said that he could not take that course, for it would bring the administration of criminal law into contempt. He said that Liddie had carried out an ingenious, elaborate and, to a great extent, succcssful swin dle, and should be dealt with accord ing'y. i Liddie was sentenced to three years' penal servi...

Severe Storm. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 2 April 1914

Severe Storm. One of the worst thunderstorms ever experienced in this district occur red on Friday afternoon last. The full force of the storm was got out Coast Road way, where dozens of trees were struck. A number of them kept alight for days. A tree that was struck in Messrs St.Ellen's paddock burst into flames in a short space of time, the sparks from which set alight to the grass, which was particularly long in the part of the paddock where the tree stood. Although heavy rain fell on the Friday, the fire spread rapidly in the grass on Saturday and Sunday, and many acres were destroyed. It was only after a hard fight that Messrs St. Ellens prevented the fire from sprta-1 irg and doing a lot of damage. A haystack belonging to Mr D. Porter was fired by the lightning and destroy ed. Mr David Findley was at the time ■working on a chaffeutter at the stack and received a severe shock.

A PARABLE OF MODERN BABYLON. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 9 April 1914

A PARABLE OF MODERN BABYLON. There was a boy, and his father said unto him, "My son, work to day, for the time cometh when you must leave school." And he said, "Yea, father 1 will study this even ing." But a chum came round, and in the heat of "ltnuckle-up" the les sons were forgotten. So on the mor row he broke down in translation, and was soundly swished; and more over, at the year"s end he got no prize. Years passed, and ,a great man said to him, "Young man, come round to my office in the morning and I will make you my hireling, and you shall amass much wealth." But 011 the morrow the youth said, "I will go after lunch, for my stomach crieth out for food." And so he dal lied with the flesh-pots till 1.30. And when he showed himself at the office, behold the vacancy was filled by a Scot, who pandered not to his stom ach—yea, even one who bore on • his 'scutcheon, "Do it now." Then in the fulness of time the young man loved a maid, and he said: "Behold, she is very beautiful, and m...

"NEDDY'S FOOTING IT NOW." [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 9 April 1914

"NEDDY'S FOOTING IT NOW." " At a certain railway station in the North of Ireland a farmer was wait ing for the train with a donkey he had purchased. On the arrival of the train at the station the far me; asked the guard where he would put the donkey. The guard, who was in a hurry, replied, "Put it behind," meaning to put it into a horse van. Pat tied tht donkey to a buffer and then got intc the carriage himself. As the train was flying along at express speed Pat, turning to a com-1 panion, said, "By gosh, boy, Neddy's, footing it now!"

CHAPTER XXVIII. The Cause Celebre Ends. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 9 April 1914

CHAPTER XXVIII. The Cause Celebre Ends. Public curiosity had been whetted by the first days of the trial. The whole story, from first to last, was so extraordinary and romantic a cne. Hot arguments and altercations oc cupied those of the public who had sufficient leisure to discuss the even to of the passing hour. Such a ro mance had not been crystallised into actual, real fact for many a long day. Wars and rumors of wars were in abeyance for the time being. Over the family meals, from the highest to the lowest in society, the Montaimr case was excitedly, sometimes pas sionately discussed. Many espoused the cause of the supposed murderer, and, against all moral or religious law, upheld that justifiable homicide, if in deed Charles Daunce were actually dead, was to be lauded rather than condemned. Others, rigid in their ac cepted canons of right and wrong, de fended the victim of Lord Montanior's summary revenge—held that every unit had the right to act for his or her own benefit—tha...

CHAPTER XXVII. A Bolt from the Blue. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 9 April 1914

CHAPTER XXVII. A Bolt from the Blue. Tbe trial began at the Old Bailey some months . after the magistrates had decided to submit the charge to a superior court. Within the court the atmosphere was heavy. The lamps burned sullen ly, shadows gathered in corners, yet there was little about the groups in the well, of the- court suggestive of the fact that a man, and a peer of the realm, was about to be tried for his life. The many barristers, ali who could spare time from their own affairs to be present at this cause celebre, were there, talked with much animation, if in subdued tones, their heads together like so many cauli flowers—some with their hands clasp ed under their gowns looking vastly like ravens or big crows. Now and then a laugh made Gwendolen, seat ed in a corner of the court, Hiss Durn ford at her side, wince and quiver. Ronald, who was somewhere on the back benches, had tried to prevent her from being present. But she was firm. Heranguish that she had been the actual cau...

What Was His Reward? [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 9 April 1914

What Was His Reward? The occupants of the railway car-1 riage were listening with joyful inter est to the tales of the young man in the corner. He had been all over the world several times, apparently, and his adventures had 'been marvellous. < "Coolness and courage are the things," he was saying. "Take this case: We were in Central Africa, tra velling among cannibal tribes. One evening, when we camped,' I had strolled off while my men prepared supper, when suddenly above a rock in front of me I saw the heads of three natives who were watching me. What was'l do do? My gun was at the camp. To turn back meant having spears through me. In a moment I aecided. Close by were some stones. Pretending I didn't see the niggers, I bent down as if to examine the stones; then, quick as lightning, I picked up three of them and flung them with all my force at their heads. Every one found its mark, and the three natives dropped like sheep. • I always take a good aim, and it served me wel...

"Tragic de velopment of the Montamor Case," was the heading of another. "The Moiitamor arrest for a crime," was the dark hint of an evening paper. Robert, standing white, motionless, \vhile • the cab was being fetched to convey him to Bow-street, thought \vith a shuddering horror of Netta and his mother. He must send a tele gram.

Ended Happily. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 9 April 1914

Ended Happily. As the farmer's wife laid down the magazine that she had been reading and soulfully sighed, her husband glanced up from his newspaper. "What's the matter, Maria?" asked the old man. "Have ye finished that story?" "Yes, Henry," answered Maria, "just this very minute." "I s'pose," said Henry, resuming his paper, "that it ended happy?" "Yes," answered ivlaria. "The beau tiful heroine got over a long spell of sickness, an', what's more, the story gives the name an' the price of the medicine what cured her." Men always think a woman inter esting when they hear she is pretty, but they don't' think a woman is pret ty because they are told she is in teresting.
