The Heart of a Girl. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER VI. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 29 January 1914
The Heart of a Girl. By HENRY FARMER,.. :Author of "The Money-Lender," "12a Quiltry Street,'" "Bondage," 'etc. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER VI. Witnesses had been examined and cross-examined. Medical experts, call ed respectively for the defence and the prosecution, had flatly 'disagreed on the symptoms of the after effects of cer tain. narcotics. Bank clerks and offi cials: had gone into the figure side of the case. A famous maker of safes and strong rooms had given expert ev dence. Police and. detectives had gone over the old ground, but more minutely than before the magistrates. Every effort had been made to trace Roy Stannard; the description furnished, by the prisoner had been more widely cir culated, and the bank had offered a re ward; but the man seemed to have van ished into thin air. The defence had •failed to produce a single witness to prove such a man's presence in, Hasted on the night of:the crime, as apart from the prisoner's uncorroborated statement. The roomy assiz...
LETTERS TO M.P. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 29 January 1914
LETTERS TO M.P. Walter Tyler, aged '56, at one time an inspector of weights and measures under the Middlesex .County Council, pleaded guilty at the Old Bailey yes terday to writing and publishing libels agathst Mr W. S. Glyn-Jories; M.P., for. Stepney (reports the "Daily News" of November 14). It was explained by Mr Muir, for the prosecution, that on Ootober. 22, 190S. the County Council -in consequence of a report by a sub-committee signed by Mr Glyn-J6nes, dismissed Tyler, who subsequently wrote to the prosecutor asking him to get him employment .in some capacity. Last July, said counsel, a letter, of, which, the prisoner admits he was the author, was:received by Mr Glyn-Jones. It was addressed 'to him at the House of- Commons,. and re-directed to' his private house. It purported to come from some girl, and accused Mr Glyn Jones of being the father of her child. Money was demanded. Altogether there were eleven letters, all in the same handwriting, and they were sent In open envelo...
WHISTLER'S HONESTY OBJECTION TO "FAKE." [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 29 January 1914
WHISTLER'S HONESTY OBJECTION TO "FAKE."' "I'll have a clean plate," said Whist ler to Sir Frank Short, the distin guished painter-etcher, now President of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Professor of Engraving in the Royal College of Arts, on whose press some of the. finest etchings of the fa mous' "Thames set" were printed. "What was good enough for Rem brandt is good enough for me," Whistler added. "I'll have my line as 1 made it" The reference was to the "smudge" effect whidh was obtained in engraving prints by leaving ink on the plate. The preference for "a clean plate" was characteristic of the great artist's implacable honesty. Sir Frank told his story in the course of his lec ture on "Etching. and Engraving" at the Victoria and Albert Museum last night (says "The Westminster Ga zette" of November 28). Rembrandt's work. the lecturer said, contained the whole. gamut of etching, and was still; and would remain, the great landmark of the art.
LONDON FOG TROUBLESOME PROBLEM. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 29 January 1914
LONDON FO0 : TROUBLESOME PROBLEM. The Tog in London the other day (says the "Daily News"), was an un pleasant reminder that the city is still far from having: its fair share of day light and 'fresh air. In the last twenty years there has been a. surprising improvement, the average number of foggy days in the winter having been reduced from 30 to 10, and the hours of bright sunshine increased from 55 to 93. but there is still the deplorable fact that London in the winter can be a more depressing and dirty place than any other city in the world. In spite of the encouraging advance there are still too many days when the Londoner has to go about his business with tingling eyes and choked lungs, and has to turn on the light when the sun should be shining through the win dow. Whether London will ever be. en tirely free from fog is very doubtful. The probability seems to be that there will always be fogs, but that they will gradually become less frequent and less black, till in the end pos...

Sporting. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 29 January 1914
Sporting. Lady Alya ran her last race at Cam- perdown on Monday, Mr Powling hav- ing decided to retire the mare after her performance in the hurdle race that afternoon, with the best rider of the Bence brothers in the saddle. Last week, in a private trial, Lady Alva easily beat Ricochet, but at Camperdown positions were very much reversed. Lady Alva has quite a number excellent successes to her credit, and her owner should be ahead of things on her win- nings. The steeplechaser Moyne has proved a veritable gold mine to his owners -(Messrs Gleeson Bros.), and this con sistent horse must have given the owfiers their biggest: scoop at Camperdown on Monday afternoon.. One relative col lected £'80 on Moyne's victory.: The strangest thing to be noted in connec tion with this 'chaser's engagements is that- fair odds are always obtainable about his chance of winning, although a safer jumper does not race in the Wes tern district. Nominations for the various events (for all of which good mon...

FAITH HEALING AND CANCER. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 February 1914
FAITH HEALING AND CANCER. Rlemarkable evidence, showing how a victim of cancer died. in great agony while receiving Christian Science "treatment" from a woman who ad mitted tlhat she was a.bgolutely devoid of medical knowledge, was given at the Westminster's Coroner's Court at an inquest on Miss Eva. Lucy Holden. Miss Holden, who was 51 years old, had been a sufferer irom cancer for some years, and had been told that an operation wae necessaly.

NATIONAL APPLE DAY. ENCOURAGIN FRUIT CONSUMPTION. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 February 1914
NATIONAL APPLE DAY. ENCOURAGIN FRUIT CONSUMP TION. One of the happiest ideas that have comen to us from American fruitgrowers (say;s the "Journal"l is that s f a National Apple Day, the object being to bring before the great communities of city consumers, in the most attrac tive manner possible, the virtues of the apple, not only as a choice item of dessert, but as a valuable, everyday a-ticle df diet. The idea could be copied with distinct advantage in this country. As the National Apple Day would be primarily a great advertising campaign, on behalf of the king of fruits, the scheme would require to be designed on a generous scale, and in a manner w-hich would appeal to the greatestt number of consumers. It may be rather ambitious to adopt one American feature-the free distribu- tion of apple pies (special machinery at the Spokane National Apple Show turn ed out these pies at a rate of 2250 per hour): However, it would certainly pay well to give choice apples for sale in the street...
