THE WHITE FEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 15 May 1915
! THE WHITE FEATHER. By FRED PLANT. "All, I say, Marian, here comes a suitable candidate for one of your gifts. I mean the young fellow in the raincoat and soft hat." Marian Heyworfh glanced ahead at the tall young fellow who wfes ap proaching, somewhat slowly, along the footpath, and, seeing him the gleam of excitement that had danced in her brown eyes at her companion's words as suddenly faded. She was about to speak when Janet Sandford, the girl at her side, exclaimed: "There :—he has turned into that florist's shop; that will give you time to pre pare your little speech." "I don't think I will present a fea ther to the young man," said Marian. '"I'll let you do it, if you like, Janet." "Do you happen to know the man? Is that your "reason?" "I don't know his name, but I've seen him somewhere," replied Miss Heyworth, wrinkling her brows. "But where it was I can't remember for the moment." "Now, Marian, don't let that be an excuse. Ah, the man's coming this way now, and he's been b...
He Couldn't Do It. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 15 May 1915
He Couldn't Do It. A lady warned lier new gardener that her husband had an irritating habit of disparaging everything in the greenhouse, and of ordering in a reckless manner new plants to be brought; but on no account was the gardener to humor him. "Whatever he says, throw cold water on him, or he will ruin us with his extravagances." At this point the new gardener turned on her a white and startled face. "Ma'am," he said, "if he orders me to pitch every plant in the place on the rubbish heap, I sha'n't ever have the pluck to douse him in cold, water. Won't it do as well if I get a drain of warm water out of the ■boiler and let it trickle gentlT" lown his neck?" The horse had run away, and was tangled up in the wire fence at the side of the muddy road. Its half-wit ted owner had kicked and sworn a>nd tried to lift the animal till he was out of sorts and covered with mud. A well-groomed man came along, took in the situation, and suggested, "Spring the fence back, then he can get h...

The Le.fi-Hand Glove. The French girl came a little for ward in scarcely repressed excite ment. "You saw madame, your mistress, get into the brougham and drive away from the railway station?" Sir Henry asked. "Oh„ yes, m'sieu." ''You are quite sure she did not get out again before the carriage drove away?" "Oh, quite sure! I must liave seen it. 1 was by tlie carriage waiting in case madame had any commands for me. She was inquiete—anxious about her dressing-bag." "Did you notice anything on the road, on the way here, till you saw the man and the lady Avhom Sparkes has spoken of?" "No, nothing.

That's When. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 15 May 1915
That's When. Aspiring authors have many things , to contend with, but perhaps tlie greatest bugbear is the man with the bill. One of the latter fraternity visited Quilpen recently, and was distinctly aggressive. "I've had enough of your everlast ing excuses!" he stormed. "What I want to know, once and for all, is when are you going to settle this bill?" "Sir," said the author loftily, "I will satisfy your demands as soon as —er—as soon as I receive the money which the publisher will pay me if lie accepts the novel I am going to send him as soon as it is finished, and which I am about to commence just as soon as I get a really good idea!"

Registered at the General Post Office, Melbourne, for transmission as a newspaper. SATURDAY, MAY 15, 1915. The world should be satisfied about the Germans now. They have justified their claim to be a great people. There are various kinds of greatness, attained by different paths. Germany has chosen the path that leads to destruction, and has achieved greatness of the diabolic kind. The Head Serang of Tophet is doubtless the patriarch of the German race. " Evil, be thou my good," is the motto and guiding principle of the irre deemably lost, and Germany, having adopted it, is carrying it into effect with characteristic thoroughness. The use of poisonous gases in trench warfare should have prepared the world—even America -—for such acts of wholesale murder as the sinking of the Lusitania ; but tha...

LOCAL AND GENERAL. I v I The public are notified that the bridge j over the Springdallah Creek, Linton, will be closed to traffic until reconstructed. § The Linton Football Club -held a social to open the season on Friday even ing at the Parish Hall. Messrs Eoddis and Ryan (violin and piano) supplied excellent music, and the floor being in first-olass condition, dancing was very enjoyable. Mr C. W. Roberts acted as M.O. Messrs Mather Bros., tailors, of Ballarat, presented the club with a new football. Refreshments were supplied by the ladies. Maggie Nunn, an eighth grade girl attending the Mortchup school? made and raffled a teapot stand on behalf of the Belgian babies. The result was very gratifying, 18s being raised.

Changed at Last. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 15 May 1915
Changed at Last. A butcher in a small way of busi ness was in the habit of sending his son "with a small trap to deliver or ders. > The lad was a careless driver, and one day he knocked down ail old lady. The inevitable lawsuit followed, and the butcher had to pay heavy damages. Shortly after this the son was the cause of another accident, which had a similar unfortunate re sult, and the drain on the butcher's resources brought him to the verge of ruin. A few days after the second case had been settled, he was sitting in his shop thinking over his hard fate, when a neighbor came rushing in breathless with the information that the butcher's wife had been run over by the careless driver of a motor car, and was lying in hospital. "Thank goodness," exclaimed the butcher, with a big sigh of relief, "my lack's changed at last!"
BOOMERANG AEROPLANE [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 15 May 1915
[eoomerang aeroplane A flying-machine that :s neither aeroplane, balloon, helicopter, nor or nithopter is now being tried. It is called a gyropter, and is the inven tion of A. Papin and u. Rouiiiy. its principle is taken from a study of the movement's of a boomerang and of the fall and flight of the seeds of the sycamore. This ,last is a one bladed screw propeller turning about an imaginary axis and b lanced by the weight of the seed grains so that it falls slowly like a parachute. The gyropter is made up of a 'long body, with a head and a tail, turning on an axis situated one-third of the distance from the head to the tail. The seat for the aviator at this cen tre of rotation remains immovable in the middle of the great boomerang. The thing is not unlike a great ban jo, the neck of which is turned at a right angle and ends in hole. It is built of wood, strengthened by interior braces, and covered inside and out with canvas. It has neither front nor rear. It is a body turning upon i...
STARTING RIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 15 May 1915
i STARTING RIGHT. What a fascinating creature is a young bride! Adorned in dainty robes, she stands at the marriage al tar in her sweet, trusting innocence and beauty, drawing the beholder to : her in bonds of love and admiration. She has no dread of the morrow; no lurking fear lest there might be a hidden canker that is going to de velop into an incurable sore to wreck the happiness of her life. In her great love and confidence in the man she has chosen for a life-time com panion she could not be made to be lieve that he jnight not be quite all that her fancy paints him. But such things have happened. The sooner the young wife realises that in getting married she has as sumed responsibilities that cannot be laid aside without serious consequen ces, the better, for her. She must be a helper to her nusband. She may feel that lier trouble is about over wher she has secured a stalwart man to carr; her brrdens; but, on the contrary, they have only begun. Both must be burden-bearers, it ...
WOMEN AND WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 15 May 1915
WOMEN AND WAR. Over two thousand years ago there was a war between China and Mongolia, and China was invaded by a Mongolian army under Mao-tun. The Chinese Emperor was besieged in the City of Ping, and when the situation seemed to be hopeless he ordered that a number of lay figures representing beautiful women be made and exposed on the city walls. He then icaused a message ,to T)e sent to the wife of the Mongolian leader to the effect that these attract ive maidens were intended as a pres ent to her husband. The ruse' was entirely successful. The siege was raised forthwith, and Mao-tun was removed out of the zone of temptation by his apprehensive spouse. When the young officer, ordered to the front, called on his tailor to get a fresh outfit, the tailor could not for get that there was already an old and unsettled account. But he felt nervous about broaching the subject. "I see the Germans," said the young officer, casually, "have had a check." "Lucky Germans!" said the tailor, wis...
The Matter Explained. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 15 May 1915
The Matter Explained. "Why do they say 'as smart as a steel trap'?" asked the talkative boarder. "I never could see anything particularly intellectual about a steel trap." "A steel trap is called smart," ex plained the elderly person in his sweetest voice, "because it knows ex actly the right time to shut up." More might have been said, but in the circumstances it would have seemed unfitting. Earth tremors had been felt in the district, and the young mother, anx ious regarding the safety of her darl ing baby boy, wrote to her parents telling them of the "earthquake" shocks, and asking if they would take care of little Tommy for a few weeks. The baby went. But after three days there came a letter to the young mother. "Dearest Mary," it ran; "please come at once for little Tommy. You can send us an earthquake."

Very Likely. The elderly, albeit 'buxom, dame liad three of Kitchener's men quarter ed at her house. She was a good old sort and, making up her mind to do them really well, placed a dinner ber fore them which would have sufficed a hungry football team. She looked at the empty dishes after the meal and threw up her hands in astonishment. "Well, well," she said. "I was told only this morning that when you got a fair slap at the Germans, you'd eat 'em, and I'm blest if I ain't in clined to think that's the likeliest thing that will happen!"
CHAPTER V. The Ruby Ring. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 15 May 1915
CHAPTER V. The Ruby Ring. As George Conway went towards his room he met his brother. "Marion wants to speak to you be fore you turn in," Derman said. "Very well; good-night," George replied, turning to his step-mother's boudoir, which adjoined her bed room. Mrs. Gonway was sitting 'by the fire in a dressing-robe. "Well, Ceorge," she said, as he went in, "have your men arrived at any definite conclusion about this unfortunate business?" He told her Guise's theory, which had been accepted by them. Mrs. Conway heard him with a ra ther hard smile. "Doubtless Mr. Guise is right in his conjecture," she commented. "His knowledge of the world, of affairs, and particularly of character, is quite wonderful. And he, has had ex ceptional experience. So much, my dear boy," she added with a worldly wise smile, "so much for your pen chant for foreign, intriguantes! I do hope you now see the folly of letting a person of that sort stand in your light. One can quite supply what Christopher Guise had ...
CHAPTER IV. In the Dark. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 15 May 1915
CHAPTER XV. In the Dark. . The search was fruitless. As even ing merged into night, one by one the seekers returned with the same negative report—no trace of the missing lady had been come upon, nor had inquiries made in the village elicited news of her whereabouts. Dinner at the Manor House had been put back an hour in the hope that after the mysterious delay Coun tess Mornay might appear; but she never came; the wild night brought no tidings of her, seeming, indeed, to mock the expectation of her com ing. Prom the moment, whenever it was, of her inexplicably strange quit ting of the carriage she had vanish ed completely, so far at least as that hurried search in the dark was con cerned. True, there was the evidence, given by Sparkes and the maid, pointing to the Countess having stood, half-con cealed, by the gate; but neither had actually seen her, nor were they in a position to swear that a second per son had actually stood there at all. An indefinite glimpse of what looked like ...

LUCERNE ENTHUSIASTS SAY [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 15 May 1915
LUCERNE ENTHUSIASTS SAY It is the best hay crop. There is less work required to pro duce it than grain. It is less expensive to produce than grain. It is a dependable crop. It improves the mechanical condi tion of the soil. It adds nitrogen to the soil, provi ded it is fed on the farm. More food nutrients can be pro duced from an acre with lucerne than with any other hay crop. Two tons of lucerne hay can, on an average, be raised per acre, and it contains as much food value as 110 bushels of oats. This does not mean that it can en tirely take the place of oats or other grain feeds. With horses it can re place oats to a considerable extent, depending on the other feed fed and the work being done. With cattle and sheep it can very largely replace grain feeds. It can also be fed to swine with good results.
