Vlace, before yoji go out, your slew or hash, or what ever it is, in tho box quickly, wrap it round with a piece of old blan ket, embed it in the hay, close? tho lid tightly, and tho cooking will go on slowly for hours. .

Fishing Tales. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 24 April 1914

Fishing Tales. f Among the most interesting con tributors to Mr. ' V. G. Aflnlo's book of fishing stories is I.orri Pes borough, who relates some remarkable facts regarding tarpon fishing. The tarpon, a fish which sometimes reaches n length of over 7ft.,. awl may weigh as much as .^lOlb;,. has peculiar jumping propensities, and if ono happens ' to. jump - on to a fisherman, or even into the . boat/ tho consequences may be disagree able. Lord' Pcsborough snys that tho most exciting and exhausing fights ho. ever hod with tarpon were with'three fish ho hooked exact ly iu the middle of the back. How they managed to get booked, in that spot is not easy .. to determine, though the experience is fairly com mon, it appears. . Lord Desborough's last fish in Florida was a gigantic shark, which seized a 1001b. tarpon that ho was playing, and, having, swallowed it, got hooked itself.

CHAPTER XXI. THE END OF THE VOYAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 24 April 1914

CHAPTER XXI. THE END OF THE VOYAGE. Dick's bands trembled a little and his heart throbbed with quickening strokes as he gazed steadily ahead. But his curiosity was only increased, not gratified. The mystery was a mystery still, though very closc in deed did the glasses bring that grey patch on the bosom of the sea. "Well, what do you think of it ?" Captain Gore asked. "What do you make out ?" "First, aline of surf," answered Dick, "and after that another, line marked by bigger and more violent breakers. Then an island like one great r$ck, rising sheer from the water. I- should say that it was rouml in formation and perhaps eight or ten miles in diameter." "Good! And is tnat all you sec ?" "No ; there is a pointed object visible above the top of the island, but T can't make out what it is. I think it is a considerable distance back, and it may be a pinuaclc of stone." "Anything else?"** "Nothing else," said Dick, taking a long look before he replied ; "un- j less you mean that depres...

Bocnufic ft monk nainod Innocon tius, of Moldavia, Russia, was said to havo instantly cured a lunatic oi' his madness, a great crowd of pennants besie-ged tho monastery bringing their mad relatives or friends, to be healed. H appears th.it in that part of Russia lunacy is very frequent, owing, it la sup posed, to the use of unripo mai/o instead of leavened brend. Jhit tho ignorant ami supers!itioua pendants believe that the madness is caused by an evil spirit taking tip his abode in the soul of his unhappy victim, and, bolicving that Inno cent ius has the power- to cast out devils, thousands have lately appeal ed to him on behalf of their loved ones. A newspaper correspondent tells uk that Moldavia hud become such an "absolute inferno of the mad," that tho Government banished Innoeentius to another monastery in the extreme north of Kussia, on a river called the Onega.

CHAPTBH XXII. "A-NEW ACQUAINTANCE. . it is" little wonder that Dick was surprised by this unexpcctcd and beautiful revelation. ' The gateway had kept its secret-well, appearing until the last moment to lead only to a tiny* rock-girt harbour. But, on the contrary, here was a lagoon of | placid silvcrj water, stretching; both directions until its noble sweep was hidden by the curve of its shores. It was no more than a quarter of a mile wide, and so. deep and clear that one couUl see perfect reflections of the natural bulwarks that confin ed it-the lofty rim of cliffs -on the seaward side, and the parallel and opposite-lying frontage of the island proper. Dick's eyes sparkled as ho gazed, and a spell of enchantment held him tongue-tied. Before him the fortress . wall towered proudly, the smoking J guns still peering from the square 1 | holes. Over the top of the parapet many heads were visible, and higher in air swarmed birds that had been disturbed by the thunder of the sa j lute. To ...
