But Hubert took not the least notice of him, except to frown petulantly as he began: solemnly to count out money until he had a total of twelve thousand eight hundred francs, which he handed to Johnson. 'I owe you another two thousand two kindred. Let me see-that's eighty-eight pounds. I'll give you a cheque when we get back to the yacht,' said he,when he had offered the money to Johnson with a certain air which the other found it impossible to resist.

A": · -Newr -Weed. . ;1 A rat.ýweeks ago in the columns of this paper we mentioned the enormous rapidity with which the " Star " thistle w a spreading throughout this State . a:weed of the most noxious species, and one promising to be of a widely detrimental character, and, as we have previously mentioned, one that was absolutely unknown to this State seven years ago. We have now to chronicle the appear ance of another newcomer. For several weeks past we have been closely watching the rapid growth of a foreign weed in this town, which according to a description given in the AeRICuLTURAn GAZErI& by J.. H Maiden is the Baffalo Burr of the United States. It is closely allied to the potato and tomato, but instead of having a smooth fruit as those plants do, it has spiny burrn, some. what resembling those of the Burdock at first, but developing at maturity into nearly spherical spiny balls, filled with black irreg. ular seeds. The plant may ie seen growing in several places on th...

SCONTRIBUTED.] Win, grim war, is again attracting the. at tention of the world; and although the information as to the progress of the Russd Jappo'struggle is but meagre, there is not the slighest doubt that number, of men on both sides :are being sent to meet their. Mlaker without ceremony, sentiment, o.d loss Sof valuable time. What the ultimate. re sult may be it is difficult to conjecture, but "the bare fact remains that the far Eastern struggle may be the means at any moment of drawing the great European Powers: to ' their gunesto participate in lawful bloody murder called war. It therefore naturally occurs to the average Australian whether in the- event of England again falling into line of battle, our own country is prepared - to undego the test of defending itself.

OHAPTIR XIV. In tthe quiet days that followed :their 're turn from the cruise, Barbara brooded over that unlucky little exhibition of temper of. hers, more even than over the incidents of the visit to Ostend. Indeed it was difficult, now that they had settled into the old groove againD, and Lucette had at once dropped her coquetities of dress and manner, to believe that the bustling housewife wrapped 'up in details of the cleaning of silver and the: preparing of home-made jams 'could be the reckless' gambler of a few days back, or the practised flirt who had secured the attentions of Mr. Johnson.'

HOW MEN HAVE MISSED MAKING FOR TUNES. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 5 April 1904
HOW MEN HAVE MISSED MAKING FOR TUNES. IT is astounding how many men may every. whero be found who are discontented-who feel instinctively that they were born for better things ; who in some way, they scarce know how, have allowed life's golden opportunities to peas them by, failing to achieve what they be. liove might have been, theirs. No one can point to any definite defect in them, yet they have failed. Why have they failed. 4 To the export observer the cause is very ob-. vious. Success is achieved only by energy and energy is what they lack. Now energy, whether of the hand or the head, is improved by food. A starved man can neither dig the ground properly nor think out a matter cleat iy. SHas a man, therefore, in order to become en. eigetio, merely to be supplied with good food .i No ; unfortunately the ease is rot so simple as that. The food that he oats must do its work proper!y.; must make rich, pure blood, and repair thewaste whice is continually taking place in his system. ...
