MY MASTER'S MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 2 August 1898

MY MASTER'S MARRIACE. Of course I know I am only a fox ter rier, but I flatter myself I know a good deal about the world-and I know this my master was very much in love. A photograph of the girl stood on our mantelpiece; such a pretty girl, with fluffy-looking hair and large eyes (I was sure they were blue), but a weak mouth. Now don't say I know nothing about it, because a dog can tell a weak r.outh in a minute. I was not at all sorry when I found out my master was in love, although It inade him a little dull. Why should men become dull when they fall in love? To tell the truth, I thought it would be rather fun to to have a nice girl about the house. I little knew. . We had rooms in Jermyn street; It was quiet but fashionable, and thr'e were hardly any cats about. 1My master used to grumble some time.s about his bills. lie would stare gloomily at them and say to his best friend, "I'm jolly hard up, by Jove !" But I don't think this was true. He only said it after a very late night ...

NURSERY NOTES. WIN YOUR CHILDREN'S CONFIDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 2 August 1898

NURSERY NOTES. WIN YOUR CHILDREN'S CONFI DENCE. "I tell mother everything!" remarked :z bright, happy girl, in whose clear eyes lurked no thought of concealment or de ceit. "Do you?" responded her friend dark-browedr and shy looking. "I never tell my mother anything Unless I have too." A whole world of meaning lies hidden in these two sentences. The first reveals a glimpse of a home made happy and beautiful by the confidence and love which in joy and sorrow alike binds Its members together-a- home where "mother" Is the ruling spirit, ready to sympathise and rejoice with her bairns from babyhood to middle age. The pic ture conjured up by the words of the second speaker is a very. different one .We see :t h'ousthold "divided against it self," the sc;ne of strife and quarrelling, of conceanlmn:nt and distrust. It is not love that rules, but self, and 'when trouble comes, as it will some day, the burden is rendered all the heavier be cause it is unlightened by mutual sym p:athy and help...

FIRING AT SEA. AMERICAN AND EUROPEAN METHODS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 2 August 1898

FIRINsi AT SEA. AMERICAN AND EUROPEAN MlETHODS. There is a marked difference between the styles of firing used on shipboard by the American and Spanish men-of war (says a New York contemporary).. The Americans fire on the downward roll while Spanish gunners, like those of all other European nations, fire on the upward roll. The question is one of theory at present, but one of the things the present war is likely to set tle is which is the better method of fir ing. FAmericans are famous as marksmen, but their practice has been to shoot low. and always save ammunition, never discharging a shot that may not be effective. It is in pursuance of this policy that Admiral Sampson has delay ed returning the shots fired from Morro Castle by the excitable Spaniards, who' fire apparently only because they like to hear the noise. l1Towadays, since the advent of the ironclad and the big death-dealing ma chine guns that kill by wholesale, where the old-style guns killed at retail, the same policy ...
