CHAPTER III. Wedded, But Not. a Wife. But the girl, newiy made a wife, did not remain long in her trance of despair. Before long the policemen had reached the old lych-gate through which she had passed but a few mo ments before with her mind full of glorious dreams, she had recovered some possession of her faculties, and was running wildly after them. "What is it? Tell me-oh, for God's sake, tell me. What has Miles done?" One of the constables, a man with a kindly face that even his present ex pression of grim determination could not utterly harden, turned towards her. "Who might you be, miss?" he ask ed. "His wife, sir-we have only just been married." Pity leapt into the man's eyes as he studied the pretty face before him. Then he shook his head slowly. "God help you, missus, that's all I can say. Your husband's took on a charge o' murder; as nasty a' case as ever was heard of, I'd say. No, I can't permit you to corue -along o£ us, regulations is regulations. But he'll be examined ...

Battles Long Ago. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 19 January 1917
Battles Long Ago. He was very, very old, and, like most old warriors, lived wholly in the past, nothing pleasing him more than to he able to relate the glories of the battles in which he had fought long, long ago. And nothing pleased little Tommy more than to listen to these stirring stories. The old man had just been de scribing the perils he' had faced at Inkerman. "Getting on for sixty years ago. Dear, dear!" he muttered. "Fifty nine years, at any rate! Yes, that was the last time a bullet grazed my head." For a while Tommy gazed at the old soldier's head, then cheerfully remarked: "And there isn't much grazing left now, is there, grandad?" Mother: You were a long, time in the conservatory- with Mr. Willing last night, my child. What was go ing on? Daughter: Did you ever sit in the conservatory with father before you married him? Mother: I suppose I did. Daughter:- Well, mother, it's the same old world.

Quite in Earnest. Soon a£ter a certain Judge of tlie Supreme Court of Rhode Island had been appointed, he went down into one of the southern counties to sit for a week. He was well satisfied with himself. "Mary," he said to the Irish wait ress at the hotel where he was, "you have been in this country how long?" "Two years, sir," said she. "Do you like it?" "Shure it's well enough," answered Mary. "But, Mary," the judge continued, "you have many, privileges in this country which you'd not have in Ire land. Now at home you would never be in a room with a Justice of the Supreme Court, and chatting famil iarly with him." "But, shure, sir," said Mary, quite in earnest, "you'd never be a judge at home!"

On the Sunday following there was snow to a depth of four inches on the ground, There were about 50 girls working next door to us, and we had some great fun snowballing them.

The Open Column. THE WANDERING COW CURSE. TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 19 January 1917
The Open Column. THE WANDERING COW CURSE. TO THE EDITOR S[R,-If I were allowed to express~my' feelings in your columns, I would cer tainly use some very strong language aeainst thoBe residents of the town who still persist in allowing their oattle to wander at night about the streets. Some little time ago, a great outcry was made because a raid took place and for a time the nuisance was abated. While the methods employed at the time were not all that could be desired, in effect it worked wonders. Unfortunately the position now is as bad as ever. Cows are allowed to camp under verandahs, aDd wben they feel disposed, they organise their forces, and the depredation com mences. I will not go so far as to Bay that gates are opened f"r them, but it certainly requires some ii genuity to keep the bovines off. If my memory serves me rightly, the shire did appoint an in spector, but that official seems to be too much concerned about other matters to trouble the cow or its wanderings. I trust ...

Old Age. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 19 January 1917
Old Age. Old age as it comes in the orderly process of Nature ia a beautiful and majestic thing. It standB for experience, knowledge, wisdom, counsel. That ie old age as it should be, but old age as it often means prwr digestion, torpid bowels, a sluggish liver and a genera! feeling of ill health, despondency and misery. This, in almost every instance is wholly unnecessary. One of Chamber lain's Tablets for the stomach and liver taken immediately after supper will improve the digestion, tone up the liver, and regulate the bowels. That feeling of despondency will give way to one of bops and good cheer. For salt) by Walker Bros., Bright; J. H. JoDeB, Harrietville; C. Lardi, Wandiligong. C. G.
