BIG DEALS. Some Famous Spot-Cash Transactions. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 9 May 1914

BIG DEALS. Some Famous Spot-Cash Transactions. The sudden purchase of the Pieca dilly Hotel for the sum of £500,000 is a remarkable instance of a huge concern changing hands in a few moments. It was easy enough for Mr. Mallaby-Decley to draw a cheque for half a million, but the compli cated nature of the deal is only ap parent when one tries to realise what half a million of money really is. But half a million down- is by no means a record. There have been numerous sales of great English es tates during the last twenty years, and more than £500,000 has been paid on at least two occasions. One es tate alone-the Kensington-realised over £600,000, and the. whole trans action did not cover two hours. Even within the past three months two estates changed hands for £250,000 apiece. Mr. Pierpont Morgan has been as sociated with many big deals Somi years ago- he was shown a collection of old masters, and promptly pur chased the lot for one milliot pounds sterling, drawing a single cheque fo...

"I've forgotten what it is I've for gotten." "My dear chap, you can't forget what you've forgotten, if you remem ber you've forgotten what you. can't remember." "I know; but what cal I tell the wife.

THE TOAD UNDRESSES. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 9 May 1914

THE TOAD UNDRESSES, It is about the middle of 'July, when he appears slmggish and not in; :lined to move, that the toad sheds ais skin. If you wait patiently you will observe him press his elbows against his sides, and begin rubbinf downwards. After a few. smart rub, ais skin begins to burst open straight along his back. He keeps on rub= bing until he has worked all his akin into folds on his sides and hips ; then, grasping one bind leg with both his hands, he hauls off one leg of his pants, then strips -off the other hind leg in the same way. He then brings the cast-off cuti cle forward, between his fore-legs; into his mouth, and swallows it; then, by raising and lowering his head, still swallowing as his head comnes down, he strips off the skin underneath, until it comes to his fore-legs. Grasping one of these with the opposite hand, by consider able pulling he strips off the skin. Changing hands, he strips the other. Then, by a slight motion of the head, and all the while swallow...

SOME HEALTH PROVERBS, "'An open window is better than an open grave." "Warm rooms have killed more peo ple than ever froze to death." "Wire screens in the windows may keep crape from the door." "A fly in the milk often means a member of the family in the grave." "If some people were as much afraid of flies as they are of bad water,, there would be less typhoid."

GRAINS OF GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 9 May 1914

CRAINS OF COLD. 'The more wit one has the more or. ginality one finds .among men. It is little troubles that wear the heart out. It is easier to throw a bomb shell a mile than a feather-even with artillery. Honest good humour is the oil and wine of a merry meeting, and there is no jovial companionship equal to that where the jokes are rather small and the laughter abundant. - While many women abuse the love that is lavished upon them, the ave rage woman lives upon a kind look, a, tender tone, and an occasional caress, and repays these with the devotion of a lifetime, Enthusiasm is the glow of the soul; enthusiasm is the lever by which men are raised above the average level and enterprise, and. become capable of goodness and benevolence which, but for it, would be quite impossible.. Aim at perfection in everything, though in most things it is unattain able; for those who aim at it, and per severe, will come much nearer to it than those whose laziness and despon dency make them give i...

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. Honey in the comb eaten freely, is a :apital prevention of constipation. Scotch broth is greatly improved by the iddition of a dessertspoonful of sugar. For patent leather or glace kid boots, furniture cream makes an excellent polish. Gloves should not be removed during a rall. Remove stains from light materials by. tubbing with a piece of clean white ndiarubber. Flour thrown upon burning paraffin vill instantly extinguish it, while water )nly spreads the flames. Maidenhair fern can be kept green for , considerable time by singeing the ends if the stalks. Always shrink braid by wetting it thoroughly before putting on the gown, either for binding foot or trimming. A very good thing for a tired headache Is to dip bandages in hot water and bind firmly round the brow.

PUBLICATIONS. Can The Public Win? [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 9 May 1914

- PUBLICATIONS. Can The Public Win ? In proportion to its population, Australia devotes more time and money to horse-racing than any other country in the world. It is the gambling element, of course, that sustains the racing to such an extent, and in 'Life' for May, just published, the question is discussed, 'Has the general public that sup ports the racing a fair chance of coming out on the right side in its transactions with the book-mak ers?' :T. M. Dash, who has had a very long and variedtacquaintance with racing, argues the question very closely, and produces a list of arguments and examples to illust rate the felicitous logic of the a :e'! course gambler. He analyses many' of the systems and superstitions upon which the man-in-the-street speculates his money, and shows how futile these are. Without in in any way adopting the pulpit attitude, but merely as a hard headed business man, he reiterates 'Punch's' advice to those about to gamble, 'Don't'. The attractivness of the seve...

Sunday Corner. Room in a Humble Sphere. When you are tempted to chafe and repine at the narrowness of your circumstances and the limit ations of your sphere, remember that Jesus, with all his rich lite and all his great powers, for thirty years found room , in a humble peasant home for worthy living and for --service not unfitted to his exalted character. If you can do nothing but live a true Christian life patient, gentle, kindly, pure --in your home, in society, at your daily duty, you will perform in the end a service of g;'eat value and leave many bless ings in the world. Such a life is a little gospel, telling in sermons without words the wonderful story of the cross of Christ.

PORTARLINGTON (10-11) Beat ARTILLERY (4-5). [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 9 May 1914

PORTARLINGTON (10-11) Bea ARTILLERY (4-5)... This match took place at Port- : arlington on Saturday last, there being a fair attendance. The start of the game was delayed owing to there being no ball at hand. Play commenced, it was soon to be seen that the home team were likely winners. The play on the whole was good, though several of the Artillery were much below form. Ports established a lead early in the game, and. maintained it till the final bell, winning by 42 points. During the game a lot of much needless barracking took place. The game was never at an exciting point to warrant this. This sort of behav~ior should be put down with a firm hand while the .season is young. For the winners, Norman Grigg, 'Dummy' Albutt, G. Hitch, M'Lean and Pannam played well. For Artillery, Purcell, Davidson, Nicholls and Gregory did good, work. Mr Davis as central umpire .was all that could be desired. CLUBS.

FOOTBALL, QUEENSCLIFF (9-14) BEAT ENGINEERS (6-11.) FAST AND STRENUOUS GAME. QUEENSCLIFF'S OLD-TIME FINISH. ENGINEERS' MISFORTUNE IN INJURED PLAYERS. The opening of the Bellarine football competition took place on Saturday last, in perfect weather. There was only a moderate atten dance at the start of the local match but increased as the game wore on. A splendid game of football was. provided those who witnessed this match. Right up to within ten minutes of the finish it looked like a victory for either side, more so the Engineers, who had led from the start till this stage. Their chance of securing the victory was largely hampered by the misfortune that befel three of their players Cotter, Maine, and Kuable, in the last quarter each receiving painful injuries to the legs. On the other i hand, the Cliff team came out with one of their old-time finishes, which has won them many a game. Sys tem reigned supreme, and they soon overtook their opponents' lead and had a comfortable win. Fr...
