INTERESTING ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Rutherglen Sun and Chiltern Valley Advertiser — 6 February 1914
INTERESTING ITEMS. -f The only animal that is really dumb is the giraffe, which is unable to express itself by any sound what ever. Neatly-worked darns and patches have been discovered In the clothes used in swathing some ot. the Egyp tian mummies. In the early day* of smoking, rich people smoked silver pipes. The poorer classes made a walnut-shell and a straw answer th»ir purpose. Swedish girls, at an early age, be !;in to make and accumulate linen garments. By the time they are of Marriageable ago they have an ex tensive outfit of such articles. The Arabs claim that Eve's tomb is at Jiddah, the seaport of Mecca. The temple, with a Palm growing out of the solid stone roof (a curi osity which is of itselt & wonder ol the Orient) is suppooed to mark the last resting-place of the first woman.

CHAPTER X. [Newspaper Article] — Rutherglen Sun and Chiltern Valley Advertiser — 6 February 1914
CHAPTER X. Some men who leap suddenly from comparative poverty to wealth pro ced at once to indulge in vulgar dis play. Michael Thorne, however, la his private life remained more or less true to the habits of the plodding young clerk. He dressed better; he kept a motor-car as a thing of Ibusi ness rather than pleasure; but he lived quite simply in an unostenta tious flat with an elderly house keeper and one servant; and the housekeeper could have told one that Mr. Thorne -wanted an accurate ac count of where every penny of the housekeping money went. But it did not follow that the man did not revel in the power of his money; in his power to control the copper market; to raise and depress and ibaffle his rivals in the same market. In this way he got joy of his money. More than that. It had purchased a ■whole family, made absolute slaves and sponges of them; it had purchased him revenge and a woman. Only one thing beyond its purchase power— love, reciprocity. His chance of ob taining ...
THE GREAT SOUTHERN MINE. The following letters have appeared in the "Argus":—GREAT SOUTHERN COMPANY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — Rutherglen Sun and Chiltern Valley Advertiser — 6 February 1914
THE GREAT SOUTHERN MINE. The following letters have appeared in the " Argus":— GREAT SOUTHERN COMPANY. TO THE EDITOB OF THE ARGUS. Sir,—No great exception can be taken to the action of the directors of the Great Southern Gold mining Company, Ruther glen, in temporarily suspending opera tions at the mine pending the decision of the shareholders, For some weeks past the washdirt treated has not been payable I and the mine has been run at a loss. I am aJso informed that the ventilation is . very bad, and I feel sure that shareholders do not want the minera to work under unfavourable conditions, and perhaps at the risk of losing their lives. Dismant ing the underground workings is, however, quite another matter, and in my opinion the management has 110 right to do this work without first obtaining the consent of the shareholders. The great Southern has been a splendid asset not only to the Hutherglen district but to the State itself, and every effort should be made to dis pose of it as ...
CHAPTER IX. [Newspaper Article] — Rutherglen Sun and Chiltern Valley Advertiser — 6 February 1914
CHAPTER IX. The individual may have a long me mory, but the general public has a short one. Where the general public •were concerned, the Hasted bank rob bery had ben. consigned to the lim bo of forgotten things, though an un expected, belated development, pro claimed by a sensational newspaper head-line, would be enough to drag it forth. Men -would think lor a 'moment, and say, "Of course!" Then they would recall the case more or less vaguely. "The fellow's name was Stanmore, or Stan-something. What was the sen tence? Five or ten yeare? He was engaged to be married, wasn't he? Didn't she faint in court, or something like that? A shop-girl, wasn't she?" But there was no oblivion for the man in the prison cell—he could not consign memories to a limbo. Every hour, every day, bit (memories more deeply into heart and soul—as acid bites into metal. There were no bru tal warders at Stilchester gaol. The governor was a former army officer and a gentleman. But prison regula tions were priso...
GREAT SOUTHERN GOLD-MINING COMPANY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — Rutherglen Sun and Chiltern Valley Advertiser — 6 February 1914
GREAT SOUTHERN GOLD-MINING COMPANY. TO THE EDITOR OP THE ARGUB. Sir,—Having read both the letter from " Prospector " and " Shareholder " and as neither letter has any reference to the water bogey of the distant future, I beg to state that at the present time there is only one 16in. lift working at a reduced capacity. In fact, there is evidently insufficient water for puddling large quan tities of washdirt without the use of settling dams. Now, a sufficient supply of water is a very necessary and valuable asset to any mine, as in many cases ex pensive dams have to be made. The quartz reef can be seen 200ft. down from the present workings, carrying gold, and is evidently permanent. About 50 tons of quartz are at grass, estimated to be worth 13dwt per ton. The working of this reef in conjunction with the alluvial would greatly reduce the cost of treat ment. ' Judging by the number of trucks hauled, the alluvial average is better now than in the past. Are the shareholders aware that £80...

The Heart of a Girl (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER VIII.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Rutherglen Sun and Chiltern Valley Advertiser — 6 February 1914
The Heart of a Girl By HENRY FARMER, Author of "Tho Money-Lender,'' "12a Quiltry Street," "Bondage," etc. (All Rights Reserved.) ; CHAPTER VIII.—Continued. Queenie's manner of accepting Mi chael Thorue's offer of marriage was indeed unconventional.- She had im molated herself on the family altar— for the family's sake, or perhaps for the sake of one member of the fam ily—her mother. She might have re fused Thorne, anl left her father, Beryl, and her brother to fend for themselves; left Philip to pay the penalty of his theft. Quite .frankly, she had grown to hate her lather; she despised her brother. Beryl she ~ loved; hut Beryl "with her training would have been in a position to earn her living independently of Thorne. But lier mother's life depended" on freedom from anxiety, constant atten tion, and comfortable surroundings. Thorne had supplied the ■wherewithal. Had Queenie been free to earn her living she would have had a commer cial value of about thirty to thirty five shillings ...
AN IMPUDENT IMPOSTOR AT COROWA. [Newspaper Article] — Rutherglen Sun and Chiltern Valley Advertiser — 6 February 1914
AN IMPUDENT IMPOSTOR AT COROWA. It is now some time since Corowa busi nesses were victimised by a stranger who waa out for spoil, writes the " Chronicle.'* Messrs C. and W. Johnson, J. R. Ran kin and J. P. Leahy were rung up by the exchange on Friday for a coveraation pur porting to be from Bulgandra Station. The perpetrator evidently knew the busi ness relations that existed between the manager, Mr Hovenden, and the firms mentioned. Stating thas he had a French cook, who was a jewel, and had left to coma into Corowa for a woek's holiday which he opined would end in a, "jig." He told them incidentally that he had two or three cheques of his to knock down, and hoped that they would keep an eye on him, and when the " Bpree" was over send him .-out to the station again. In reply the manager received the assurance that his cook would be looked after and his return assured.
