The Domestic Pet. The superintendent of a Sunday school -was illustrating for the chil dren the text, "Arise and take tlw young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt." Showing them a largo'picture, she asked: "Now, isn't that splendid? Here is the mother, here is the young child, there's Egypt in the distance." Tins children, however, looked dis appointed, and finally one little bo;' piped out:. "Please, teacher, where's the flea?"
A Globe Trotter. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 13 August 1914
' A Globe Trotter. • A University, professor who has greatly endeared himself to his stu dents on account of his goodhearted ness, has one particular failure—ab sent-mindedness. Lately he visited his married, nephew, and, of course, had to listen to the youns wife's praise of her firstborn. The gentleman felt that he must say something to give the impression that lie was interested. "Can the dear little fellow walk?" he inquired, quietly. 'Walk!" said thu mother. "Why, he lias been walking for five months!" "Dear'me!" exclaimed the professor, lapsing again into abstraction, "what a long way he must have got."
Preparing. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 13 August 1914
Preparing. An old woman in Sussex was severe ly reproved by the parson for curtsy ing whenever the name of Satan was mentioned. Asked why she did so, she replied: *,* "Well, civility costs nothing, and you never know what'll happen." Among the congregation assemb!a&lt;! at a chapel near Wigan a few davs ago was an elderly lady, well known as an eccentric character. The les son read by the minister this day hap pened to be the 2nd Chapter of St. Matthew. During the reading of the 25th and 2Gth verses, which related the history of the woman who. had seven husbands, all of whom died be fore her. the old lady seemed to grow very excited, and when the next verso was read, which says, "And last of all the woman died also," the old lady, unable to control herself auy longer, ..cried out nt. .the .ton, of her voice, "Time for her!" Instead of waiting for a rich uncle to die, go and learn wisdom of the in dustrious ant.
CHAPTER IX. Along the Road. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 13 August 1914
CHAPTER IX. Along the Road.' It was done rashly and on the spur of the moment. Exactly what lie wa3 going'to discover Gijray had not the faintest notion. It seemed a .ridicul ous thing for a prominent Harley-st. specialist to he setting out on a wild, midnight adventure like this with no logical excuse, and no notion where the escapade might lead him. Madame Desterre had annoyed and piqued him. She had spoken of his priyate affairs with ■ thinly-veiled insole'ncb, and she had, moreover, threatened him. Who was this giddy, glittering society but terfly who ventured to pit heriwits against his? He wo.uld show her that this sort of thing was not to be toler ated! Gilray's blootl'was up now, and he was determined to see the matter through. The more knowledge lie gained the better armed would he be for the fray, if fray there was eventu ally to be. He had been warned to make 110 further advances towards Enid Harley—,'ie had been threaten ed with serious consequences if he did so. Indeed,...
CHAPTER VIII. The High Road of Adventure. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 13 August 1914
CHAPTER VIII. The High Rond of Adventure. Here at last it. appeared to Gilray w.ik fortune holding out both hands to 1,itii. He had formed a compact with k'liid, showing that, she was more or ie.-s under an obligation to him. It v i uId have been a difficult, matter ;.> ;ia(e precisely what: that obligation was, hut no doubt time would help him to give it some satisfactory de finition. Anyway, Enid had been desperately afraid lesi, he should speak, lest lie should say something tie t might put Van der Knoot on the track of his missing miniatures. Gil ray had certainly seen the precious pictures in the hands of Daniel llar ley. Whether they had been stolen or not. if did not in the least matter — perhaps there was some strange s'.or.v atached to their appearance in the queer dock-house, some plausible i'Nj lanalion. Even tiie blackest, evi dence sometimes becomes common place when the witnesses for the de fence enter the witness-box. What did it matter? Suppose Du'.i iel Harley wa...
VAIN DIPLOMATS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 13 August 1914
VAIN DIPLOMATS. Court life is turned inside out by H.R.H. the Infanta Euialia- of Spain, aunt of King . Alfonso, and she pre- i sents to us in "The Strand Magazine " •where her memoirs are appearing, a picture of scandals, intrigues, and Jeal ousies which is astonishing. Some of lier most piquant remarks are'reserv ed for diplomats, whose ears must surely he tingling. In her opinion, of all men in modern Courts, the diplomat is the most ah surd:: After remarking that they aro "a useless survival of the days when, the .relations' between nations depend ed on the feelings between Sovereigns and the diplomats intrigued and flat tered to some purpose by smoothing over misunderstandings or exasperat ing offences," the Princess points ou.: that nowadays the Court diplomat lia^s no power, except to deliver thp mes sage of his home Government., "He is not entrusted with secrets," she says, "any more than an erranl boy. ■ And he is usually stupid.

ROSSETTI AND THE SALMON. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 13 August 1914
ROSSETTI AND THE SALMON. Tho enthusiasm of genius leads to strange and curious Happenings nt times, and tho story which is told by Mr. Henry Holiday, the famous artist; about his-friend Rossetti in his "Re miniscences" illustrates in an amusing manner tho later's thoughtlessness when he came in contact with anything which aroused-his Interest. At one time Rossetti had all the en thusiasm of :the beginner for collect ing china. "He dined one evening with friends who ,followed his lead in the matter of china, to such good pur pose that tho whole dinner was served in beautiful specimens, and for th? better display of these was set out on the table. The salmon was served in a noble dish, evidently a precioiw example. When the cover was re moved, Rossetti started, leaned over to examine the dish, took it in both hands, turned it upside down to see the marks on the back, leaving the sal mon on the tablecloth, and exclaimetl, 'The very dish I was going to get to morrow!'" The famous physic...

A result of the Bush .Nurses in spection of State School children was the appearance in Lecngatha on Saturday of a waggon load of scholars from the Tarwin Lower school, at the dentist's to have their tooth attended to. There has boon a decrease of 3-1,578 domestic servants within the past '25 years in England. The publishing of war nows that has not passed the cotisor constitutes a broach of neu trality. That remedy is quite sublime, Which really " makes good " ovory time, And thro' at modest cost 'tie sold, Is worth ils weight in Virgin sold. It needs strong evidence to rout The rancour of tlio sceptic's doubt ; But such pereistuut proofs ensure His faith in Woods' Great Peppermint Cure,

The Coming Elections. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 20 August 1914
The Coming Elections. When the double dissolution took place, little, na.? it dreamed in the political &lt;"aofp that some thing greater than an election for .the Senate and House of Repre sentatives in the Commonwealth of Australia would occupy the minds of the people. The can non's deadly roar has announced the opening of a great war in Europe, and distant as the thun der is it should convince leaders of the respective parties and the people as a whole that the utmost caution is necessary in regard to financial matters. Prior to this world - wide calamity, great schemes were being propounded by the Liberal and Labor can didates for the welfare of Aus tralia, involving the expenditure of large sums of money. But they now must stand over till more halcyon conditions prevail in the Old World, for no one yet can hazard an opinion what the issue of the turmoil in Europe at the present time may mean to the Commonwealth upon termination of hostilities. If- the struggle is protrac...
