II. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 20 February 1914

' After about three-quarters of an hour's walk wo camc to the spot mark o(j on tho map. It proved to be, as Jim had said, a lonely enough spot. A narrow country road, scarcely more than a lane, ran steeply down a hill between high banks, crossed a valley, ami then, turning sharply aside, ran obliquely up the opposite slope. In crossing the valley the road passed first over a low bridge, under which a brook nppled pleasantly, then a few yards farther 011 was spanned by a solidly built raihvay-nrch. I he railway itself skirted some wood ed slopes nnd crossed tho road, over tho bridge, almost at right angles. Thero was no house in sight, and the onlv sound was that of the cows munching the abundant grass in the meadows on either sido of us. Ono could scarce)? conceivo of a lc*s likely scene for an operation by one of One-cved Steve's kidney than this sylvan spot. There -was nobody to swindle but tho cows. I said so with a laugh, but Jim sat on tho low* wall bor dering tho litlo bridge ...

The Heart of a Girl. By HENRY F/.RMER, i.utlior of "The Money-Lender," "12a Quiltry Street," "Bondage," etc. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER XII.—Continued. "Come out—and have a drink!" re peated Mr. Gordon Price, still mum bling. He, too, like Michael Thorne, had broken out Into a perspiration. "We must talk it over—pull ourselves together—if I have erred, it lias been for Queenie—for my che-ild's sake!" But Mr. Gordon Price was thinking of the pension he would be entitled to as Michael's father-in-law, to say no thing of useful information re copper. No marriage no pension, no comfort able old age. rtad that telegram reached Queeilie, there would have been no marriage oil the morrow. Both men knew that. Even now "Come outside!" whispered Thorne. "Drink—no—you've had too- much al ready!" They went out together, Mr. Price hatless. Thome's car stood at the door, but they did not enter it, crossing over to the promenade. "You share the responsibility of this!" said Thorne. "Yes—as her ...

"[?]LENGARRY." [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 20 February 1914

"GLENGARRY." Tin; name of " Glengarry " is per petuated in Gippslaiul by the-Uivor Glengarry. This l'iver . had been named i by St^zelecki on his journey of exploration, in honour of tlio .Superintendent G. J. Latrobe, and on all olliciu! uiaps the name of " La trobe " appears. ■ McMillan's journal («|uoted by J. J. Shillinglaw, "Australasian" Sep. ltw l) "reads: "Jan. "JUrd {1S10). Reached another large river joining the Mac alistcr. called it the Thomson, and sub sequently "tlio Glengarry, or as it is called by'the natives—the Tnngil.'' A reference to McMillan's other ac counts of this journey, and also .Mac alfstev's will disclose the fact that whereas both mention the large river neither of theUi allude to the fact' that they named it, as in all other oases of rivers crossed. We must therefore come to one of two conclusions—either the name is rv later interpolation in the-diary quoted by Shillinglaw,•' or McMillan gave a name to-tlie river which at that time was without any loca...

CHAPTER XIII. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 20 February 1914

CHAPTER XIII. After Thorne's departure a silence fell on the family, during which Mr. Price, absent-mindedly, drained the dregs of the champagne bottle into the glass that had done duty for the bro ken one. Queenie had not left her place beside her mother. Before cpiit ting the room, Thorne had crossed to her and again kissed her. It was tho eve of their wedding and only the fam lly were present. Oil the surface lie had acted as if he counted himself al ready a member of the family. On the surface—to an uninitiated spectator it would have appeared homely, human and unafTected. In reality, that kiss was almost an act of revenge. She '\ad risen to her feet. She had not winced. She had not averted her Hps. "Good-night, Michael!" she had said. "Mother's a little tired and excited. In that way she excused herself from accompanying him from . the '""Mother," she said, breaking the si lence that followed hi? exit, "it's time you went to bed.

CHAPTER XIV. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 20 February 1914

CHAPTER XIV. The church presented an empty and dreary appearance. One or two peo ple, scenting a wedding, had gathered outside, and a few had entered. A wedding, like a funeral, has a fascina tion for some, though they have no 'personal knowledge of those concern ed. But the wedding-party itself was composed only of the family and the nurse-companion who had arrived that morning to replace Queenie. One pew sufficed for them. Mrs. Price, who had spent ten pounds to advantage on her clothes, looked frail and excited. Her wan cheeks were Hushed hectically, and she Bhed tears | at frequent intervals. The ibride and her father had not yet arrived, and Mi chael Thorne and his best man had only just taken their place at the al tar rails. The nurse compauion was seated beBide Mrs. Price; Beryl, also fitting ly arrayed, suffering martyrdom, was on the other side of her motjier. Next to her Philip, in clothes painfully new and gloves a size too big for him. He looked as if he would have welco...

PURE WATER FOR COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 20 February 1914

PURE WATER FOR COWS. Pure water for cows is as import ant in milk production as the food they eat. Jliicjahas been written concerning tlie'S^rations for dairy cows,'' but not fo much about the water the cow drinks and its rela tion to pure milk and the health of the animal. The dairy cow needs an Abundant supply of pure water, not only as an aid to digestion and other bodily needs, but to produce her nor mal supply of milk. If the cows do not get enough water, the milk flow will be decreased, just as surely as If they did not get enough food. There are various reasons why water consumed by dairy cows should be pure. In the first place, pure water promotes the health of the animals. Cows which are compelled to drink impure water usually fall away rapidly. Impure water contains the ova of dangerous parasites. These parasites attack all kinds of farm animals that drink water containing the eva. The dangerous thing is that ,the cause of the loss of animals by parasites is unsuspected, a...

"IMPORTANT DISCOVERY IN GIPPSLAND." [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 20 February 1914

"IMPORTANT DISCOVEltY IK GIPL'.SLAN 1>." Under this heading appeared a para graph recently, giving an account of tiic discovery of this Lakes iMitrancc, to which were added some words of comment. Further investigation dis closes that these comments, based on some inaccuracies in the paragraph it self, arc not in accord with facts. Tin; paragraph states that Kivcr Keeve "after lowing from Lake King a dis tance of twenty miles enters the sea." Kivcr Keeve as a mat let of fact is only about eleven miles to the old en trance, about eight miles to the present entrance. The position was further complicated by the fact that on Tyers" map of 1 ^ I I a clear water-wav is shown from Lake King to the sen. through Lake Keeve, about L'O miles long, while Keeve Kiver U unnamed and shows a very short channel of a few miles. This, however, is the Kiver Keew referred to in the paragraph, though the length or it is erroneousiv ^iven. It seems better, therefore, to amend the comment in the followin...

ROYAL CASTLE FIRE GRAND DUKE'S SURPRISE The Grand Duke and Grand Duchess of Mecklenburg-Schwerin and tho members of their family und suites had to flee for their lives from tho famous castle at Schwerin in conse quence of a tire which broke out last evening (stated the Berlin correspond ent of "The Dailv Mail" December 19). Tho castle was partly in ruins and precious works of art had been de stroyed when the lire was extinguished early this morning1. . The total loss is estimated at £150,000. The Grand Duke and Grand Duchess were at din ner when frightened servants burst into the room shouting, "The castle is on lire!" The outbreak rapidly made headway, and the Grand Duke and Grand Duchess, without hats or coats, had to make their way through Hying sparks to escape. Keports are in circulation at Schwerin to-day that the flro was the work of a revengeful servant who was recently discharged. Court othcials deny this, declaring that it was caused by an electric "short.circuit." Among t...

Of course, that is not its name. Being so close to Leadenhall street It is more respectably christened. It Is In close touch with the shipping of fices and the produce markets. There is a railway station near, and gath ered round are shops selling nautical instruments and charts?, the offices of ship chandlers, and places where you may fit out apprentices for sea with everything from the marine soap to the gold-laced cap. Standing on the kerb there, or lean ing against the walls, are men who might be permanent features of the landscape. They stand thoughtfully smoking, gazing Into vacancy for hours at a time.

DOMESTIC ECONOMY SERVANT SAVED £2000. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 20 February 1914

DOMESTIC ECONOMY SERVANT SAVED .C2000. A pleasing, and evidently authentic, story comes from Baltimore about a family servant, .says the New York "Nation." .She came from Germany twenty seven years ngo, has lived with one Baltimore family ever since, ?nd now returns to Germany with the tidy sum of nearly £2i>00, accumulated by steady eaving. Particulars as to wages are wanting, but It Is evident that she has been having all these years a comfortable home and has been thor oughly appreciated In the household In which she lived. It lo not improbable that Iter wages have been somewhat more liberal than usual, and that she has received pre sents that have helped her to economise In the matter of dress. But it is to be noted at once that there Is nothing in the least marvellous about tlie tale. There are thousands of servants who, without sacrificing the requirements of comfort or self-respect, and without failing to live up to a very good stand ard of appearance as to clothing, could...
