ANATOLE FRANCE AN APPRECIATION [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 21 February 1914
ANATOLE FRANCE AN APPRECIATION (By Professor M, A. Gerothwohl, in "The Daily News,") M. France has been hailed among us as a great novelist, moralist and critic. At which he must have smiled, as is his wont, with playful and unruilled bonhomie. For hlie is not, nor would he be, any thing so solemn, or so narrow, or so objective. IIe may, indeed, have writ ten essays in the guise of fiction, or fiction in the guise of essays, but he has never wilfully indited a work of fiction nor a moral treatise. Again, he may have written of books and authors, and about them, or around tlhem; for lie has spent a lifetime in their midst, and in their privacy. But he never meant to write on books or authors, to turn literary critic or reviewer. He is guiltless of all pro fessional intentions, as of all longing to express or realise anyone or any thing in art-save in relation to him self, to his enjoyment of the curious and the beautiful. LITERARY GLOBE-TROTTING In brief, iM. France is a pure egotist...
The Great Montamor Case. CHAPTER X. A New Mission. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 21 February 1914
The Great Montamor Case. By ALICE M, DIEHL, Authoress of "The Knave of Hearts," CHAPTER X. A Now Mission. Ronald Halldaro had seen Gwondo len strolling towards the river, across the illuminated lawns of Lady Emil ia's grounds, the man he believed to te Lord Montamnor, his supplnntor, at her side. It 'was impossible, although ihe honestly believed Charles Danune to have been merely the Australia:n alias of his long-lost cousin Robert, not to be on tenterhooks as to Gwon-' dolen's opinion after she had had a privato interview with the claimanlt. lie hardly know himself whether, un derlying his: as he considered it, un. alterable opinion, that the boarded stranger was the real man and no other, there was not a lurking hope to be convinced of the contrary by a succession of undeniable facts, such us Gwendolon's absoluto repudiation of the supposed Robert, So ihen, as he was hovering about the tents, the pair must pass to return to the on closed lawn where the dancers wore disporting the...

REARING CHILDREN MEAL TIME TERRORS [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 21 February 1914
REARING CIIILDREN MEAL TIME TItRROIRS Most mothers have more or less vague theories as to the reasons why one member of the nursery so obsti nately refuses to "thrive" (writes Elizabeth Sloan Cherser, M,B., in "The Daily Nows" of December 0), From original sin to natural delicacy of con stitution, a whole host of causes or' reasons can be assigned. . Unfortunately the truth more or less generally; remains hidden, and the child evolves into a man or woman, handicapped by the fact of not thriv ing in youth. It is a fact, unfortunate but undeniable, that the child who does not thrive is generally milsman aged. The normal, natural young of the human species eats, sleeps, plays, and enjoys life thriving like the proverbial bay tree-that is, if we give him a chance, But our metliods of cloth ing, feeding, and "managing" our off sDring detract from the health and joy of life of far too many of them in this generation at least. GOOD AS IIIS CHEST A medical inspector of schools told me the o...
INFLUENZA VARIETY OF NAMES. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 21 February 1914
INFLUENZA VARIETY OF NAMEIS, Nobody likes intluenza. It has not Ia friond in the world, and every country tries to make out that the wretched thing is a native of some other country. In fussel it is called Sihorian fover, and nl Siberia Chinese fever. In France it has been called Spanish catarrh, and Spain throws it back as IRusian fever. Dr. Arthur F. IIoplirk gives some interesting lists of the names it has been called in aL book o' "Influenza." The term influenza came to be goner ally applied in Eingland to the disease which was successively known as "tlhe now acquayntance," "the gentle cor0 rection," "the now delight," and "the knock-toe-down fever" by a nlistakel Eighteenth century Italian wi'rlti't, says Dr. Ilopklrk, spokeo of "una in fluonza di froddo" (Influence of cold), and English physioian,, mistaking the word hiflunzas, for the name of the disease itself, used it, The same term is also used in Geor many, where a host of dialect names still prevail, such as lightning ca...
DEER FOREST PERIL TO COUNTRYSIDE [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 21 February 1914
DEER FOREST PERIL TO COUNTRYBIDE One of the lovellest stretches of English scenery within range of Lon don is being robbed of both its beauty and use with such speod and certainty that local fooling is coming to a pitch of high irritation and private pro tests are being made (writes the spo :hal correspondent of "The Daily Mail"). The question is much more than local, By the doeliberate choice of a now landlord (1) Some land which produced food, both corn and m1ilk, is put out of cul tivation, is from a national point of view made barren. (2) A famous beauty spot is do prived of its native charm and with drawn from the use of the noighbors and a wider public who delighted to walk there. Something has been already heard of the destruction of farms and farm buildings and of the making of a deer forest across the wild and rich stretch of country below -lindhead and be tween Haslemnere and Witley, on the estate recently bought by Lord Pirrio, one of the first Peers created by the presen...

OUR VACANT SPACES. CLOSER SETTLEMENT BLUNDERS. [CONTRIBUTED.] [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 21 February 1914
OUR VACANT SPACES, CLOSER SETTLEM ENT BLUNDERS, [CONTn!mUTED,] To Victoria the matter of closer settlement is of such supreme im nortance, that any members of the House of Assembly who may have become unusually excited in discussing it must bhe pardoned, The State is spending millions of money in buying big estates to be out up into allotments suitable for the small holder; it is advancing other millions to those small holders to put them on their foot, This policy, if suooessfully carried out, means the peopling of our vacant spaces, and the lasting prosperity of our rather overgrown oitieo, However, the Committee appointed to inquire into the matter issued a report which has filled many members of Parliament and many of the publio with dismay, We are told that good land has been bought at too high a price, that so much poor land has been purchased that the would be settler has left thousands of acres of it on the broad backs of the taxpayers, that many of the settlere themsolves a...
