Complimentary—in a Way. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 9 April 1914
Complimentary—in a Way. "John, said Mrs. Harkins "I heard nice compliment for you to-day." Mr. Harkins put his paper down, twisted up the ends of his mous tache, looked pleased and said: "Well that's nothing remarkable, I receive compliments nearly every day." Mrs. Harkins went on sipping her tea and her husband waited for her to resume. Finally, he said: "Well, why don't you tell me what it was? Who was it that compli mented me?" -- "Oh, you couldn't guess in a week." "Mrs. Deering?" he ventured. "No." "Not Bessie Fallington?" he rather eagerly suggested. "No." "Oh, well, of course, if there's any secret about it, I don't care to hear what it was, or who said it." "There isn't any secret about it," Mrs. Harkins sweetly returned. "Mr. Hannaford told me that, every time he and I met, he (became thoroughly convinced that you were a man of ex cellent taste." John Harkins then shoved his hands down in his pockets and walked out side to think it over.

"A very excellent likeness, sir!" re plied the Bishop. "Well," said the King, "when I showed it to Salisbury he looked hard at it for a minute and then said: " 'Poor Buller! I wonder if he is really as stupid as he looks?'"
A NEW CHUM IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 9 April 1914
. A NEW CHUM IN AUSTRALIA. Mr. Morley Roberts, the well-known author, has 'been detailing in the cur rent number1 of the "Strand Maga zine" some reminiscences of his life in Australia and America.. As a lad of. nineteen he quarrelled wiiu his father and took a steerage passage to Aus tralia in an old iron ship called the Hyderabad. The sea had always ap pealed to ,him, and instead of idling his time away he spent the long months consumed in the voyage in working as if he were one of the crew. The officers were white, but the crew were Hindus, Malays and See dee boys, and during the voyage not only did he acquire a knowledge of seamanship which stood him in good stead later in his strange chequered career, but he also obtained a working knowledge of the lingua franca of the Eastern seas. As a record of strenu ous endeavor, the distinguished au thor's simple narrative takes a-, front rank even in this country of work and thoroughness. Mr. Roberts says:— It is perhaps hard for a writer...
SUCCESS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 9 April 1914
SUCCESS. Success shall come to him who waits; But not to him of folded hands— To him 'who hopes, but hesitates, And simply by the roadside stands. Success is won by effort strong, By unremitting, earnest stress. The way it travels seems o'er-long? To haste its course, go, meet Suc cess ! Why waste the time to drift and swing And watch the careless billows roll, Relying that some chance will bring ' You somehow some day to your goal? Far better that, sails spread the while To catch the faintest favoring • breeze, You man the sweeps, and mile by milei You still advance across the seas. Go, meet Success! For not enough That you should patience' have alone. Up signal! On! Though fields be rough, 'Tis those shall reap who first have sown. Each day some little progress make; Lean not on trustful idleness, Another route. So meet Success! Lest, ere it reaches you, it take A morning paper alludes to "Hoard ings that Shriek." They uvUBt be ot the "yell-oh" variety,
A VICAR'S "DRINK POINTS." [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 9 April 1914
A VICAR'S "DRINK POINTS." The Rev. George Denyer, vicar of St. Paul's Church, Blackburn, issued some novel "drinlc points" in his parochial letter for November. He stated:— The man who can afford to * get drunk is too rich. The best thing to keep in the beer bottle is Ihe cork. If you get the best of whisky it will get the best of you. The man who tried to drown his sorrow in drink found that it could swim. It costs a man more to have a seat in a public-house than to have a seat in the church. It takes a long time to age whisky, but it won't take long for whisky to age you.

PATIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 9 April 1914
PATIENCE. "To know how to wait," says De Maistre, "is the secret of success." Cyrus Field was ten years in laying the Atlantic cable. The first time he tried to lower it the great rope snap ped in mid-ocean, and when they grap pled it and brought it to the surface, it slipped away from them, and was gone. Not until he had tried thirty times was the tireless patience of the inventor rewarded. In life's school one of the hardest lessons is to learn to wait patiently. it has been said that speech has been giyen to women to conceal their thoughts, but it seldom even con ceals their thoughtlessness. For six months a vicar in the North has been trying to get a curate. We know ma.ny old maids who have been trying for years. Most .things we ha'ven't the slight est right to are rather pleasant.
PARIS—A SYNONYM OF YOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 16 April 1914
PARIS—A SYNONYM OF YOUTH. Paris when your skies are graying, how many of us know you? Do we know your Rue du Pont Neuf, with its silent melodrama under the dawning heavens—or do we know only the farce of your Montmartre? Do we see the laughter in dancing eyes in the Ru6 Mouffetard—or. in the revel of your Saturday night, do we see only the belladonna'd leer of the drabs in the Place Pigalle? Do we know the romance of your peoples—or the ro mance of your restaurateurs? Which? I wonder. Paris has changed. It isn't the Paris of other days, you say; and Paquer ette, little Easter daisy, little flower of France—little Paquerette is dead. And you are old now and married, and there are the children to look out for—they're at the school age — and life's quondam melody is full of rests and skies are not always as blue as once they were. And Paris, four thousand miles beyond the seas Paris isn't what it used to be! But Paris is. For Paris is not a city—it is Youth. And Youth never dies. To Yo...
WINTER IN ARCADY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 16 April 1914
WINTER IN ARCADY. Is it months or years, dear Kitty, Since we left the murky city, (The rain is wanly dripping through the plaster in the hall), And our wand'ring fcJototeps rested In the shade of this sequestered Little cottage with the jasmine cling ing coyly to the wall? When we found this haven, dearie, We were pleasure-cloyed and weary, (The wind is softly sobbing through the panels and the lath). I considered it rheumatic; But succumbed to your ecstatic Approbation of the streamlet at the ibottom of the path. There like Rosalind in Arden You disported in the garden Till the sunset crowned the willows with its golden aftermath; And we watched the aspens quiver. Yes, I felt the timbers shiver; ('Tis the summer-house a-cruising up and down the garden path.) How we dallied with the hours 'Neath a canopy of flowers (Another prize chrysanthemum's gone crashing by the beam). But these sylvan joys are fading And to-morrow we'll be wading To the city through the pathway at the ibottom ...
CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 16 April 1914
CHAPTER III. Before Peter Bellairs left Bloem fontein he had a long interview with the lawyers,T" Messrs. Krux and Kru ger. They gave liim a copy of part of the will, which satisfied him that his friend Tad dealt fairly iby. him. Ai the rest of the money, which Paul Danvers called his pile, was secured for the maintenance of Sheila. It was to be hers without let or hindrance. It was to 'be hers if she married even at seventeen, and it was to be hers if at the age of twenty-one she were still unmarried. But the sum of Paul Danvers' wealth was not mentioned. Peter ask ed Mr. ICruger what it amounted to, and to his astonishment was told that this was a secret -which would not foe revealed until the money was hand ed over to the young heiress. All Kruger would permit himself to say was this: "It is a large sum—a very laTge sum, but I am not allowed to mention the amount. That was one of my client's strictest injunctions. You may take it for granted, however, Mr. Bellairs, that your litt...
CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 16 April 1914
CHAPTER II. Mrs. Dale, widow of the late George Dale, lived with her only child in a tiny villa in South Kensington, Even the smallest villars are expensive in that part of the world. She was a slight, pale woman with light blue eyes and a faintly aquiline nose. In appearance she was the essential of grace, ibut no one could call Margaret Dale beautiful. A little boy with hearty lungs was crying lustily in his own special nur sery. His name was Ralph, and his mother, at least, thought him the most beautiful creature in the world. Mrs. Dale had been a widow now for over two years, and it certainly did come into her head and also into her heart time and again that another husband would not be entirely amiss. She was very poor, very poor in deed, and did not like poverty. She was considered by her neighbors to be an exceedingly attractive woman. She was still young, and when, some time ago, she had met Peter Bellairs at an evening entertainment, she had found the handsome, dark-eyed 'b...

' No," said Peter, in a gloomy voice. "I am too poor to marry. You made a success, old man, in your adventur ous life, but I failed—I mean, I only earn enough at the bar just to scrape along. -I wanted to marry, but could not afford it." "You love some one?" said Paul Danvers. "Yes—I love her with all my heart and soul and strength. She is a young widow and has one boy. He is five years old. He will be a playmate for your little Sheila, but—but, Paul, I cannot ask Margaret Dale to share poverty with me." "She shall.not," replied the other man. "I have arranged everything with my lawyers, Messrs. \Krux and Kruger. You will look out their names in the directory and tliey will tell you what I wish. In my "will I bequeath to you, JPeter, £1000 a year. Out of it you must have Sheila edu cated...

Child's Terrible Eczema LEGS BADLY AFPECTED . ZAM-BUK HEALS EVERY SQRE Little George Bowden was badly crippled by running eczema, and could only be moved about on pil lows. His disease baffled the hospi tal doctors, and ordinary remedies failed to even check the painful sores. Zam-Buk however, astonish ed the parents by working a speedy and remarkable cure Mrs E. Bowden, who lives at 62 Rose St., Darlington, Sydney, said— "For three months my son George suffered severely fiom an outbreak of eczema on his legs. The disease crippled him and he had to be move'd about 011 pillows. We had the boy at the hospital, but the doc tors there could do no'hing for him, and various other treatments that we tried proved quite ineffective. George was in torture day and night for his limbs were kept in a red raw state by the watery discharge, that coiibtantly oozed from the affect ed surface. "He was in a shocking. condition ■when we started to use Zam-Buk. The sores were so wonderfully eased by the...

Mirboo South. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 16 April 1914
Mirboo South. This week I desire to call the atten tion of the powers that be to the very dangerous state of ihe planking on the Tar win river* The one referred to is furthest up the stream, and if it is not attended to an accident may occur at any time. A portion of one plank has rotted away entirely, hence leaving an opening through which a horse may pass his hoof, or a pedestrian his foot. Other planks are showing that they are in a state of decay, and'it should not cost a great sum to make the structure safe. ... The late rains have .been taken ad : [vantage,-; by., i he - farmers to sow grass on their holdings; and" it will not be 'PHg before this part of the district will be clad in a mantle of verdure. . Mushrooms are plentiful-this season,, and many parties,of the fair sex may be observed with their baskets in -hand gathering the very tasty morsels. Care should be taken to see ihat none but the right sort, are gathered, as it has been announced in the daily papers that many ...
