Gorrke News. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT] Bishop Green held confirmation service in the Church of England on Tuesday evening, when the foK lowing candidates were confirmed .' Misses M JlcCarthy, M Bird and Q Walker and Masters Edmondson and Richards. The Methodist Swiss Fair .was held in the local hall on Friday evening last. There was a very fair attend ance, and it should resnlt in a very profitable undertaking. At the close of the evening the articles that wer6 left over were disposed of by public anction. It is to be hoped that next time anything is held in the hall the lads will be kept in order, as at one time they took cemmand and the din they created was very unpleasant; The two candidates, Messrs Wade and Walker, who are seeking election for the seat at the Kowree Shire table, addressed a very large meeting of ratepayers on Saturday, and placed their views before the people.

THE FARM. FIXING UP RUN-OUT PASTURES. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 20 March 1914

THE F A R M < FIXING UP RUN-OUT PASTURES.; (E. IJ. Vincent, in the "Pacific Daily Review.") If the dairy farmers of this coun try were to be told that they might be .making from one-tbird to one half more money out of their busi ness^ every year of their lives than they are now, they would jump to find out how it might be done. I am going to make that state ment and then j)rove it. The pastures of this country to-day if in good condition would support at least one-third more cows than they do at present, and. in many in stances the difference might safely be placed at one half more. This is, I am aware, a startling assertion. To think that we are going on year after year, keeping not more than half" or two-thirds the stock we might and ought7 is a most surprising thing. It does not speak very well for our ability as dairymen. /". The fact of it is, we have not paid much attention to our pastures any waj. ; After we have decided what land we will give to this purpose we fe...

CHAPTER X. AN OMINOUS CHANGE OF QUARTERS. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 20 March 1914

CHAPTER X. AN OMINOUS CHANGE OF QUARTERS. Apparently Dick alone heard the tumult overhead, but he gaye It merely a passing thought. He re mained in the same position, one huud resting on the chair which he had been on the point of snatching up when the pistol was levelled at him. His heart was full of gratitude to tbe girl who had come between him and death, but he doubted if her interference would be successful. "Are you mad ?" cried Senor Mon tejo, ,holding the weapon out of his sister's reach: "By heavens, Lucille, I will not he thwarted ! Stand off !" "You shan't commit murder !." "You have been listening at the door like a common spy!" he de clared, scornfully. "I am ashamed of you !" .She did not deny the charge. "Give me the pistol," she pleaded. "I say-no !" thundered Montejo. "Why did you interfere ? You over heard our conversation - the vile words the dog of an Englishman flung at me ! Can I let him live and preserve my honour ?" "But you drove him to it, Leon he spoke in ...

CHAPTER IX. FAMILIAR QUARTERS. There could be no doubt as to tlie Spaniard's identity, though he was rather roughly dressed in faded blue serge, flannel shirt, and peaked cap. I^Ie seemed in nowise disconcertcd by the meeting, and his smile was very genial as he held out a hand to Dick. With the other hand he lifted a foaming pewter to his lips, and took a deep draught. "Your health, Mr. Valentine !" lie .said. Dick refused the proffered hand gave no sign of hearing the words. , In a dazed manner lie, snatched the I glass of brandy from' the counter, I and poured the fiery stuff down his throat. He stared silently and un easily at the Spaniard, thinking of the circumstances under wbich he had last seen him, in the room of the Jolly Waterman, at Wapping; "So we have drifted together again, my friend !

Strange Living Jewels. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 20 March 1914

Strange Living Jewels. i To increase the splendour of their toilettes, Creole beauties make USJ of the Cucuyos, a large species of firefly, found in the tropical forests of South America. Strange jewels ! which must be fed, which must be bathed twice a day, and must be incessantly taken caro of to pre vent them from dying. The Indians catch these insects by balancing hot coals in the air, at the end of a stick, to attract them, which proves that the light which these insects diffuse is to at tract. Once in the hands of the women, the Cucuyous are shut up iu little cages of very fine wire, and fed on fragments of sugar-cane. When the JWexjcan ladies wish to adorn them selves with these living diamonds, they placo them in little bags of", light tulle, which they arrange with taste on their skirts. There is another way of mounting tho Cucuyos. They pass a pin, without hurting them, under the thorax, and stick this pin in their hair. The refinement of eleganci consists in combining with...

Where Sound Cannot be Heard. A MYSTERY OF THE SEA. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 20 March 1914

Where Sound Cannot be Heard. -+ . A MYSTERY OF THE SEA. It is a singular nrtd somewhat disturbing fact that there frequently exists at sea, in the area covered by a fog, what might be described as a zone of silence ; that is, a belt of space in which sound cannot be heard. It is the only thing of all others most dreaded by mariners. There may be danger ahead-say, a deadly rock lying right in the vessel's course. The light that marks it, whether from lighthouse or light ship, is blanketed by the fog, but the crew at least . expect to hear the warning blast of the foghorn. No such blast reaches them. . The sound is completely lost in the silence zone, and the first intimation they have 01" the danger is when the ves sel crashes on the rock. To this cause undoubtedly may be 1 attributed some of the great disas ters at sea wfiich have puzzled.many shore people. There was the case of the Stella, for instance, which ran full tilt on the Cusquet Rocks, oft' Alderney. The Stella was a railw...

Trudging along behind them he ob served, by the gleam of a street lamp that both wore the uniform of Bri tish naval officers. Then they begau to talk in audible voices,"" and the first words made bis heart throb wildly. "The neighbourhood looks strange to me, Gcenville," one said. "I want ed to take a cab, you know." "It's all right," was the reply, in the mellow voice Dick knew so well. "Don't you see where you are? Yoff der at the bottom of the street are masts and shipping." "Yes, I see now.

Memories of the past softened him towards his old friend, and his first impulse was to make himself known. How came Grenville to be in New York ? he wondered. The explanation . flashed upon him.
