Her Prize. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 12 January 1917
Her Prize. Mrs. Brown has a special horror of lotteries, and at all times and places she embraces every opportunity of holding forth with vehemence con cerning this pet abomination. Her indignation will therefore be imag ined when, one evening, her worthy spouse came home and proudly an nounced that he had joined a goose club. For something like an hour she poured the vials of wrath on her un fortunate husband's head, while he endeavored meekly to bear it all. At last the warmth of the attack proved quite too much for the long enduring John, and he decided that the time had come for him to fire up in return. r "I suppose, my dear," said he, en deavoring to be sarcastic, "you were I never in a lottery, were you?" But, alas for the speaker! Mrs. Brown turned upon him with wither ing scorn. "Once, John, and only once," said she. "They say, as you know, that marriage is a lottery. Well, I went in for that, and I myself won a goose!" ! First Actor: I must say, colleague, I always conside...
LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 12 January 1917
LABOR. Labor is life! 'tis the still water fail eth; Idleness never despaireth, bewaileth; Keep the watch wound, or the dark rust assaileth; Flowers droop and die in the still ness of noon. Labor is glory!-the flying cloud lightens; Only the waving wing changes and brightens; Idle hearts only the dark future frightens; Play the sweet keys, wouldst thou keep them in tune! Labor i rest-from the sorrows that greet us; Rest from all petty vexations that meet us; Rest from sin-promptings that ever entreat us; Rest from world-sirens that lure us to ill. ' Work, and pure slumbers shall wait on thy pillow; Work, thou shalt ride over Care's coming billow; Lie not down wearied 'neath Woe'a weeping willow. Work with a stout heart and reso lute will! Droop not, though shame, sin and anguish are round thee! Bravely fling off the cold chain that hath bound thee! Look to the pure heaven smiling be yond thee! 1 Rest not content in thy darkness a clod! Work for some good, be it ever so | slowly! I C...

Why He Was Crying. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 12 January 1917
Why He Was Crying. In a certain town a man went into o restaurant for his noonday meal, and, it being a cold day, the door was clos ed. He sat down a few tables from the door. Presently another man came in, who neglected to shut the door. The first man noticed it and yelled to him gruply: "Shut that door. Were you brought up in a barn??" After a few seconds he glanced over to where the man was sitting, and noticed he was sobbing. He went over and apologised for talking in such a manner. "I didn't mean to be so rude in ask ing you if you had been brought up in a barn " "That's it-that's it," the other sob bed; "I was brought up in a barn, and it makes me homesick every time I hear an ass bray."
CHAPTER I. An Assignation. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 12 January 1917
CHAPTER I. An Assignation. Belle Angel stared round with frank dislike upon the dingy houses that made lier daily outlook. Not for the first time a spirit of rebellion against the monotony of her lot was stirring within her; something to which she could put no name clamored for a wider, fuller life than this. Day aftpx_day of unceasing groyneas, with only the everlasting complainings of her mother to relieve the silence, or the endless gossip of small-minded wo men, had driven her at last to a point when, any fate seemed better than this eternal confinement . "I'll go mad if 1 stay here," she said passionately, throwing back the dark curls from her brow. "I wonder why I can't settle down to it like the other girls; they seem satisfied enough. Work, eat and sleep, that's all there is to do." A neighbor, a loutish fellow enough/ grimy with toil, stamped past her in heavy boots, and indulged himself in a.coarse wit ticism at her expense. "Gettin" prettier nor ever, Belle," he said in a...
A Feather in the Wind Published by Arrangement with Cassell & Co., Lon. and Melb. All Rights Reserved. PROLOGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 12 January 1917
A Feather in the Wind By FRANK H. SHAW, Author o£ "The Love Tides," "The Bondage o£. Hate," &c. Published by Arrangement with Cassell & Co., Lon. and llelb. All Rights Reserved. PROLOGUE. The first suggestion of trouble came when the big volcano that dominated the landlocked harbor suddenly spout ed a wrath of smoke, that spread and thickened until the glory of the south em sun was eclipsed and the serent day grew dark. "Bontoli's_ angry," said the captain the "Tollingtower" to his mate. "In a bit she'll start throwin' tliingt about. Best heave short an' be ready." He had gained much experi ence of the vagaries of a volcanic re gion; he had, for instance, visited a port, and come back a week later to fmd it effaced, wiped out of existence as completely as the writing is wiped from a slate with a damp sponge. "We'll take no risks; it's a' God forsaken country, anyway," he said, and saw to it that the mate did as he was told, which was, perhaps, just as well for the'"T...
SCOTLAND YARD'S WASHING BOOK. Laundry Marks that Give Away Criminals. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 12 January 1917
SCOTLAND YARD'S WASHING BOOK. Laundry Marks that Give Away Criminals. Among tlie many minor aids to the detection of crime possessed by the Scotland Yard authorities none is more efficient than the "Register of Laun dries," a huge brass-bound volume con taining lists of all establishments in the kingdom where washing is taken in, together with the distinctive signs and letters employed by each in mark ing their customers' linen and under clothing. Practically every laundry has its own private mark, usually a combina tion of two or more letters of the al phabet. Following these, on each ar ticle sent by a customer to the wash is a number, corresponding to the said customer's name in the books of tlie concern. It is not difficult to see how this prac. tice may be turned to the advantage of the police; and, as a matter of fact, it has been the means, of bringing to justice, at one time and another, quite a largo number oi criminals.
TAUGHT BY BIRDS. How Man First Learned to Make Baskets. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 12 January 1917
TAUGHT BY BIRDS. How Man First Learned to Make Baskets. There lias recently been unearthed near Tliebes, in Egypt, what is prob ably the earliest specimen of pottery extant. It is a small round bowl, in shape, size and exterior markings, an exact replica of a thrush's nest, with the outer network removed. This discovery sets at rest the vex ed question as to whence man learnt the art of basket-making. He learnt it from a bird's nest. The clay-lined home of the mother thrush and her family suggested the clay-lined basket which held water and also served for cooking. The basket work, when burned off, left a baked clay pot, the outside oi which was decorated with an incised basket pattern. Gradually this pattern gave place to painted representations of the original. All archaeologists know how predominant this basket de coration is in early pottery in Egypt, Chaldea, Crete and elsewhere. And now we know the source whence it came.

This, in almost every instance is wholly unnecessary.

A Review of the Session. ECONToMY AND RURAL VELOPMEMT PARTY. (By A. A. Billso.V.) .^mid tho many disturbing influences crunted by >ho Great World's War, tin; attention of the people his, very probably, been diverted from Slate politioa. A brief review, therefore, of the work of 1 the Bession, and of the development which have arisen, will, I apprehond, prove interesting to my constituents. It is quito reasonable to suppose ih it tho absotbiug problom of the futuro of tho Empire is at (he back of anyoiie'f hoad to an oxteot that would completely shot oat tho consideration of thosa domestic matters associated with State legislation, and it may surprise a grant many electors to know that the session just closed has been barren of meisurei of an utilitarian character.

COLORS MADE FROM MOSS. What Happened Before Aniline Dyes Were invented. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 19 January 1917
COLORS MADE FROM MOSS. What Happened Before Aniline Dyes Were invented. What did ve do for dye stuffs be fore the discovery of aniline dyea, which were invented not a hundred years ago? We obtained them from plants and mosses, which produced most beautiful colors of all hues. The preparation of shades from coal-tar and minerals is essentially a German industry, though it must not be forgotten that the first discovery in that line was made by a British scientist. It was in 1856 that Sir W. H. Per kins introduced his beautiful mauve tint, hut since then the Germans, by dint of characteristic trade dodges and more purloining of British se crets had, long previously to the war, captured the whole business. How ever, when the Continental supplies were cut our chemists were roused to the opportunity, and there has been no real lack for months past. In ancient days our British dyes the Dyers' Company of London -was established in 1452-depended for tones of yellow on the dyers' broom or gin...
THE MOTHER. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 19 January 1917
THE MOTHER. A little ring of gold-a battered shoe A faded curling wisp o£ yellow hair Some pencilled pictures-playthings one or two A corner and a chest to hold them there. Many a woman's fondest hoard is this, Among her dearest treasures none so dear, Though bearded lips are often here to kiss That once made only prattle to her ear. The sturdy arm, the seasoned form, the brow That arches over eyes of manly blue Mean all joy to her living memory now,. And yet-and yet-she hugs the other, too! With that rare love, mysterious and deep, Down in a mother-heart thro' all the years, That placid age can never lull to sleep And is not grief, yet oft brings foolish tears. She often goes those boarded things to view, And fingers the wee treasures hid den there To touch the little ring and battered shoe And kiss the curling wisp of golden hair!

Lend Your Money to Your Country. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 19 January 1917

"Lend;,your mon> y to your country " is the request, with the reminder at the same time that '"he serves who eaves." The soldie shave freely offered their lives to their country, HS their sacrifice may be price of victory, ' ut to secure a complete victory your money !a also needed. But \yhile the suHier runs all the risks of battle, the,in vestor in the War Loan is in no danger himself, nor is his money, as repiym'nt in full is guaranteed by the Commonwe iltli with good interest and advantages-uot insignificant in themselves-meanwhile.
