V. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 25 April 1914
V, Since Macdonald left the mine a brief weekly cablegram had arrived at the office, reporting the progress that had heen made, but indicating nothing calculated to cheer the heartB of shareholders. The latest one had been received live days preceding Macdonaid's appearance in London, aud he had immediately wired back to Forrest for further news. Three days after the spurt in the market there was still no reply to his mess age. He was beginning to despond, and said s to Emma; but she had somehow developed a profound and cheerful optimism regarding the mine's future. "I'm perfectly sure, Mr. Macdon iild," she said, "'that it will come all right before long. I know it will." "1 ibelieved it once, too; but at that time I had only my own little wor ries to shoulder. Now " He broke off and smiled, looking at her grate fully.' "But I'm not going to kick. After all, this has been a wonderful W2ek to me. Instead of a whipping, I feel I owe Blakeley thanke for giv ing me cause to come over."...
IV. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 25 April 1914
IV. Next ,day the market in Woola mucks experienced some thrilling liours. At ten o'clock a 2/- bid pro duced a' thousand shares, which were instantly absorbed. A few odd lots followed at the same figure. Then came a pause. . Two-and-threepence failed to uncover more than fifty shares, but 2/6 brought out five hun dred. Then the fun commenced. It was known that Blakeley had vanish ed, and that circumstances had satis fied. the market that Woolamucks, as speculative counters, were dead as doornails. All sorts of rumors were (lying around, but as yet the unknown buyer's identity had not been dis closed. Shrewd dealers argued that, whoever he might be, he was not out for mere frolic. There was too much steady, dogged persistence about the buying for that, and here and there they, too, 'began to nibble. By noon the quotation had risen to 5/3, sell ers, and every parcel was instantly snapped up. In the oflice at Cheapside the au thor of all the commotion sat quietly by Emma's sio.e, with...
Sporting. CYCLING. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 25 April 1914
Sporting. CYCLING One of the most fantastic pieces?" of anti-motor legislation was pro posed by the City Council of Colam bas, U.S.A., where all motor cars should be provided with three sets of headlights—a white set to show when the car was going no faster than 10 m.p.b., a green set to be shown when the paee did aofc ex ceed 15 m.p.b,, and a rod set whers the car is travelling at more thasa. 15 miles per hour. Thanks to the opposition set up by the Colntnbnff Automobile Clnb, the raeasnre waa thrown out. Some interesting particulars of (he doing of the team of Australian road racers now in Europe has been forwarded to the Durilop Rubber Company by Ivur Munro, who is one of the party. Writing on March 11, he says that they went over the Ronbaix-Paris course, the same length as the WarrnambooI-to-Mel bourne race, and found it a very bad one. " They generally get a wind behind them," he adds, " and. make fast times, the time last year being 7 bra. 30 mins.—record foe the coarse. We t...
Correspondence. SCARSDALE WATER SUPPLY. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 25 April 1914
SCARSDALE WATER SUPPLY. To the Editor. Sir,—I notice in your report of tb® Scarsdale Borough Cbuacil that Cc Station has taken stops to have a, water service for the borough. The idea in itself ia a laadable one; bat the practicability of it seems to me to be outside the pale of such a small municipality as this is. Ia the early days, when the mines were booming, and the population -yas large, it would have been the time for such a step to be taken, because there would have been some chance to get sufficient revenue to pay off a good proportion of the liabilities. But now, when the good old town has decayed and reached thai: stage it could not get much worsa ia, ia my opinion, a very inopportune lime to liunch a water seheuie. I might here say that in almost every borough in Victoria, born long after Scarsdale, there is a legitimate water supply, and some of the civic fath ers of those boroughs did not count the cost before imposing burdens upon ratepayers that they have not, nor ne...

III. Richard Dale's heart was heavy. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 25 April 1914
Richard Dale's heart was heavy. I In spite of Uis brave words of an hour since, when'lie had ordered Lib uy and lire brothers out. o£ his sight, | the "poorhouse" loomed large on hiB j mental vision. In a week's time, if not before, he and Betty would be lurnec1 away.from the small holding that had. been farmed by his father and grandfather bsfore him. He had spoken of work, hut who would take an old man when there were plenty of young ones ready and eager for employment? His troubled gaze went from time to time to that pathetic figure in the inglenook. He watched the shadows 1 deepen until a brooding peace seem I cd to envelop all the land; the nod ding tea-roses showed darker in the ga-hering dusk the scent of flowers ios.e heavily from the- dew-drenched j earth; the smell of clover and new-1 i.iown hay was in the air. This was the hour that he and Betty had al ways loved the best—the hour of rest j after a day of toil. 1 With fingers that shook he felt for ! : a time-worn briar, ...
FEEDING FOR LARGE EGGS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 25 April 1914
FEEDING FOR'-LARGE EGGS. Experiments have 'been carried out by the French Academy of Sciences, to test the effect of feeding on the quality and size of eggs to find out how to produce the biggest eggs. Three lots of ducks were fed on tlesli, lish and vegetables. Those fed on the fish diet laid the greatest num ber of eggs, 'but they were of the poorest (inalily. The heaviest eggs were laid by thsse fed 011 the flesh diet, whilst those fed on pure grain diet also beat the fish-fed birds both for quality and weight of egg. The American poultry raisers are agreed that the best quality and heaviest eggs are got from fowls fed on grain with a small percentage of llesh food. Strange to say, they hold that the foraging of insfcet and such like life lias a deteriorating effect on the quality of the egg, and tliey are also unanimous in the finding that toe much green food lias a similar effect 011 the quality and weight of an egg. It is 011 this account that they agree that the Asiatic brown...

II. 26 Argyle Mansions, Battersea. August 2nd, 1910. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 25 April 1914
II. 26 Argyle Mansions, Battersea. August 2nd, 1910. Dear Betty,—William, Al£ and I think it only right that you should know about father and mother. The farm's been doing very badly of late, and they can't keep up the interest on the mortgage. I'm very • much Kfraid it will mean the workhouse for them unless you can afford to do something really substantial. If so, you'd better meet us at Rosedale Farm to-morrow afternoon at five o'clock. If you're not there I Bhall take it you're not willing, but I may os well tell you than I can do nothing to help the old people, and I expect Prudence keeps a tight hold on Wil liam's money, and I don't see what Alf can do; so that you seem to be the only hope. And as, judging by all accounts, you must be, coining money, 11 hope you'll do your duty. We've seen very little of one another, you and I, of late years, but I think you know what a strong objection poor Bert always had to play-actresses, and It was only natural I should side with him. But...
THE VALUE OF LEMON JUICE. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 25 April 1914
THE VALUE OF LEMON JUICE. A teaspoonful of juice in a small cup of black coffee may relieve a bili ous headache. The juice o£ half a lemon in a cup of hot water taken on awakening in the morning is an excellent liver cor rective. A lotion of lemon-juice' and rose water will remove tan and whiten the skin. Lemon-juice with olive oil is far superior to vinegar for a salad dress ing—equal parts used for blending. Lemon-juice oil loaf sugar is good for hoarseness. If when boiling sago or rice a tea spoonful of lemon juice is added, the grains will be whiter, and a delicate flavor will be imparted. We all know the value-of salt and lemon-juice for removing stains from white goods. After the juice is ex tracted, the rind dipped in salt clean ses brass' beautifully and convenient ly. It also removes unsightly stains from the hands. Tough meat can be made tender by adding a teaspoonful of 'lemon-juice to the water in which it is boiled.

THE FAMILY COUNCIL. I. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 25 April 1914
THE FAMILY COUNCIL. I i By FRANCES BROWN. I. They were old—over seventy, both .1 tliem—and it was before tlie time of the Old-Age Pension, so there seemed nothing for it but the "House." The man, his face weather-beaten and gnarled under beetling, pent houss brows, sat upright in his chair and gazed fixedly out of the open lat tice window at a yellow tea-rose that nodded its graceful head in the aper t^.-e. A . light summer breeze stirred the curtains, bringing with it a home lv scent of gilly-flowers. Richard Dale's face was impassive, li might have been hewn out of rough granite, and to all appearance as life ltss a thing, so far as any indication oi paying attention to the family con clave was concerned; but, his hear ing was unimpaired, he lost not a word of tlie discussciou. , The old woman, whom as the belle ot the village he had wedded fifty years ago, sat on the opposite side c?f the inglenook and looked with pa thetically patient eyes at the man ' whose handsome face and ma...

Mrs. HarUins went on sipping Uev tea and lier husband waited fqr her to resume. Finally, he said: "Well, why don't you tell me what it was? Who was it that compli mented me?" "Oh, you couldn't guess in a week." "Mrs. Deering?" he ventured. "No.': "Not Bessie Fallington?" he rather eagerly suggested. "No." "Oh, well, of course, it mere s any secret about it, I don't care to hear what it was, or who said it." "There isn't any secret about it," Mrs. Harkins sweetly returned. "Mr. Hannaford told me that, every time he and I met, he ibecame thoroughly convinced that you were a man of ex cellent taste."

And he said, "Yea, father I will study this even ing." But a churn eamo round, and In the heat of "knuckle-up" the les sons were forgotten.
