ACROSS DEATH VALLEY. A Forbidding Desert. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 May 1914
ACROSS DEATH VALLEY. ----------- A Forbidding Desert. "It was as the sun was rising that we began our descent from Para mint Range to take our way across Death Valley, in Southern California. The mountain surface is in rolls and drifts until it reaches the edge of the valley, where we arrive at the forbidding grey flat, level as a bil liard-table, save where here and there an encrustation of soda in. some form permitted the foot of man or beast to break through this slim crust. Our route lay directly across the sterile desert, and before us ran waggon tracks that were made by miners and adventurers who came to the silver-mines of Paramint. Old Tex, our guide, said that one could see on that desert waste the tracks of the waggons owned by the early emigrants, of whom a number per ished for want of water in the years 1849-50. When about.' seven miles out on the desert we came across the bones of three oxen, cracked, worn, and weather-beaten, and three spokes near them. A little furthe...
SOME HEALTH PROVERBS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 May 1914
SOME HEALTH PROVERBS. "'An open window is better than an open grave." "Warm rooms have killed more peo ple than ever froze to death." "Wire screens in the windows may keep crape from the door." "A fly in, the milk often means a member of the family in the grave." "If some people were as much afraid of flies as they are of bad water,, there would be less typhoid." "When you see a child looking like an angel, do not kiss it; you might make a real angel out of it." It is possible to go wrong in' many ways; but we can go right in one way only.-Aristotle. To suffer and be strong is not easy, but courage grows with use. To sit on a sweetheart's knee is a practice sanctioned by law, ancient tradition, and modern usAe.-Juldge Adams.

AN AWFUL NIGHT IN AN ALPHINE PASS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 May 1914
AN AWFUL NIGHT IN AN ALPINE PASS. ---·--+~----- How a mountaineering party lost its way in an Alpine snow storm, after .a guide had first collapsed and then become delirious, and how it spent a night without food in a hole hewn out of the frozen snow is vividly described by Mr. Elliot Stock in the August number of "Travel and Exploration." "What's to be done, Hans ?" asked Mr. Stock when they knew they were lost; '* we can't stop here. We shall be frozen solid in a few hours." "We have to, Herr," replied the guide, soberly. "We must wait, al ways wait. We cannot. move if we cannot see." They roughly hewed a small cave out of the snow on the mountain side and crept in. How the night passed is described as follows : "We must all have dozed, to be awakened roughly by one another at intervals ; for it would have been fatal to have slept outright in that intense cold. We were kept awake, too, by our patient's delirious state. At odd moments he would spring into a sitting position, shout ...
THE FARM. MANURING MANGELS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 30 May 1914
THE FARM. MANURING MANGELS. Experiments were conducted by Mr. John Porter. B.Sc., at six centres in Herefordshire on the manuring of mangels. All the dressings used gave a profit when the increase in the crop was valued at 12/ per ton. The ef fects of the manures were striking in many instances, and in certain cases more than double3 the bulk of the crop. It was found amongst other things that nitiatc of soda used as a top-dressing at rate of lcwt. per acre immediately after singling time has given an average increase of 4 tons 54cwt. per acre. Still, a second top-dressing of lcwt. nitrate of soda about three weeks after singling time further increased the average yield by 22.cwt. per acre. Nitrate of lime used as a top-dres sing .at the rate of lcw~ . per acre has given an average increase of 31¼cwt. per acre of mangels. Superphosphate (4cwt. per acre) in a complete mixture has given better results than 6cwt. per acre of basic slag, so far as the weight of the mangels is concerned....

CHAPTER XVII. THE BATTLE OF THE TITANS. The excitement on the cruiser was now intense. Men clamoured and cursed, and Captain Gore, looking from the bridge through his glasses, uttered a frightful oath. Then, all at once, the tumult faded and there was a brief moment of awed silence. For the mystery had been revealed. The banks of mist, rolling wider apart, disclosed a great white steamer a quarter of a mile Ibeyond the yacht, and but a short distance astern of her. The strange ship bristled with a wealth of armament, and men were crowded on her deck. And by more than one sign she was prbmptly re cognised as an American man-of-war. The discovery, of course, was mu tual..Thc yacht bore on rapidly, and leff an open stretch of sea, half a . mile wide, between the two big crui sers. They were now ab...
THIEVES IN BUSINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 30 May 1914
THIEVES IN BUSINESS. The Diamond-merchants of Hatton Garden are among the wealthiest traders in London, and one would as soon expect to find pickpockets in the peerage as a gang of robbers of the worst type trading as diamond-mer chants in a dignified suite of rooms in Hatton Garden. Nevertheless, some time ago a gang of experienced criminals were in business in Hatton Garden as dia mond merchants on a considerable scale, and their reason for setting up in that particular line was that they had £70,000 worth of rough diamonds to dispose of, their entire collection having been stolen from a post-office safe in South Africa. It isn't often that criminals are so bold as the men of this gang must have been, foi Hatton Garden is per haps one of the best-policed locali ties of all London, a. considerable ~ourage must have been necessary for them to have established them selves there, with no more lawful reason than that they had £70,000 wvorth of stolen diamonds which they wished, to sell...
THE SPOONERISMS OF Dr. SPOONER. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 30 May 1914
THE SP00NERISMS OF Dr. SPOONER. There is probably no more famous man at Oxford than Dr. Spooner, the Warden of New College, and his fame though peculiar, is likely to be last ing, for he has added to the gaiety of our nation by inventing a new form of humour, the picturesque transportation of initial syllables. It is said that he owed the inspiration to his first nurse; but it was not till he became an Oxford don, and blandly announced at divine service that the hymn would be "Kinquering congs their tatles tike" that his peculiar genius found full recognition, and "Spoonerisms" gave a new facet to humour. A little later he con vulsed the congregation at morning chapel by reading in the lesson of the day that, "it is easier for a camel to go through the knee of an idol," and astonished an audience of working men by asking them if they never felt "some vague yearning, some half-warmed fish, for a higher life." The undergraduates of "New" were aot slow to .respond to. his invitation at...

WON THE KETTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 30 May 1914
A ~ishop was visiting some !ionses in a well-known mining district. On entering one of the houses he saw, to his great surprise a number of men seated in a circle on the floor, inthe middle of which was a bright copper kettle. Being much interested in wortmen and their ways, he inquired of one of the men what was going on. "We're trying," said the miner, "ta son who can tell the biggest lie, and the kettle will be presented to the man who tells it." The blahop, greatly shocked, ex claimed, ' claimed, "Why, my good man, I .never told a lie in my life."

Is Electric Light A STEP IN ADVANCE?? ,. , . - ! " ., NORTHCOTE "COUNCILL4ORS ' -SAY 'YES' To prove the almiost universal recog nition by those that have had experience with both gas and electricity as illumi nants, we quote the following ,from the 'Age'. Another important step in progress of the city of Northcote was reached on Wednesday last by the switching on, for the first time, electricity to light up the streets in place of gas. It is about three years ago since the proposal for the in troduction of a municipal system of elec tric lighting was first mooted. Cr E. Lees, who is 'the father of the move ment' locally, to give an idea.of the great advantages of electricity, held a "demon stration in rooms in High-street. Some time later it was decided to borrow £7000 for the electric lighting of the town,..anud about nine. months ago the work was commenced, ,under the supervision of Mr. W. H. Ashman. The total expenrditure to date on the scheme is £8000 for the lighting of High st...

ENGINEERS (7-14) Beat QUEENSCLIFF. (6-9). GAME WELL FOUGHT. ENGINEERS COMING ON. These two teams journeyed to Portarlington on Saturday last to try conclusions, when a well, fought game was witnessed. Queenscliff were without the ser vices of three of their best players, Gus and P. Johnson and C. Shap. ter.. An idea of first defeat was entertained by their many support ers in not having the services of of these players and facing an improved team. Despite this a good show was made. The game was fought to the end, Queenscliff suf fering defeat by 11 points. Several of the losers went a little astray towards the finish of the final quarter.' This brought about some poor kicking, which aided the cost of defeat. Engineers, on the other hand, played fine football, The marking of ILeggett was especialy good.

The above match, which took place on the local ground on Satur day last, proved to be an uninte resting. game. The meeting, of *these teams generallymeans a good game, but far from so on this occa sion. At times, the .play livened up a little, but very rarely. The Ports attacked strongly at the start, and it would not be wrong to say they won the game in the first quarter. Scoring 3 goals 4 behinds against 2 behinds gave the visiting team a good lead, one which Artil lery never looked like overtaking. It was well into the third quarter before the soldiers scored a goal. In describing this match one must not lose sight of the fact that Artil lery p'ayed without luck. .The ball hit the posts four times during the game; the field umpire was against them and nobody could do anything right; but taking this into consideration there were times when the...
