So Did the Dog. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 14 May 1914

So Did the Dog. The defendant, who was charged with keeping a dog without a license, repeatedly tried to interrupt the evi dence, but was hushed each time by the court.

You know it expired .on 1st January." "Yes; and so did the dog!" An-amusing story is told of a De vonshire man who invited a Socialist to visit his estate and see wUat he had done for^the villagers. As they drove about the men. touch ed their hats and the boys aud -girls "bobbed" and curtsied. Soon they passed a man smoking his pipe, who took no notice of the squire. "Ah!" said the Sociiii-i'. "That's the sort of man for me. No bowing and scraping." "No," replied the squire; "that's the village idiot." And so he was.

PERMIT TO REMARRY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 14 May 1914

PERMIT TO REMARRY. Because he has lived "a uniformly good life" for at least five years, Mr. Charles R. Pelgram, a millionaire silk manufacturer of Paterson, a town six teen miles from New York, is to be allowed to remarry. A divorce decree granted against him in 1893 contained a ban on his remarriage. Mr. Pelgram has success fully applied to have it lifted, under the provisions of tha new Domestic Relations law, which insists that a divorced husband must live a good life for five years before remarrying. Three well-known business men swore that Mr. Pelgram had fulfilled the conditions of the law, and the mil lionaire himself said that he had been following simple life rules for twenty years. He was married nt nineteen.

HONEYMOON TRAMPS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 14 May 1914

HONEYMOON TRAMPS. The average bride when she changes her orange blossoms and her resplendent wedding dress for the more prosaic travelling costume, does not usually have to prepare for such a journey as that undertaken by Mr. and Mrs. Grantham, 01 Alberta. After walking 7000 miles and being held up a dozen times, Norman Grant ham, of Galgary, who, with his bride, formerly Miss Mabel Ryan, o£ Minne apolis, started last spring on a honey moon tramp around the world, Is back in Calgary for a time. Mrs. Grantham's health broke down when the trampers reached Brindisi, on the Mediterranean, forcing the temporary abandonment of the trip. Mr. Grantham will resume the jour ney at once, as soon as his wife's health is restored. Mr. Grantham returns with a whole some respect for the ability of Eng lish pedestrians. He tri>j<i to break the record of ten hours and two min utes from London to Dover—sixty eight miles; but the best he could do was eleven hours and twenty-one min utes....

WOMAN'S WORLD. NEVER MIND. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 14 May 1914

WOMAN'S WORLD. NEVER MIND. Sometimes, when nothing goes just right, And worry reigns supreme, When heartache fills the eyes with mist, And all things useless seem, There's just one thing can drive away The tears that scald and blind— Someone to slip a strong arm round And whisper, "Never mind." No one has ever told just why Those w.ords such comfort bring; Nor why that whisper makes cur cares Depart on hurried wing. Yet troubles say a quick "Good-day!" "We leave them far behind When someone slips an arm around, And whispers "Never mind." But love must prompt that soft caress— The love must aye be true; Or at that tender, clinging touch No heartsease comes to you. But if the man be moved by love, Sweet comfort you will find When someone slips an arm around. And whispers "Never mind."

CHAPTER XI. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 14 May 1914

CHAPTER XI. . While Sheila was happy as girlcoulJ be, without, as she expressed it, a care in the world, very different was the case of Margaret Bellairs. It was true that her husband never reproach ed her, that he never, by word or deed alluded to that dark tragedy of the past, but the old tenderness, the ar dent and real love, which had been her portion and which had made her so very happy, seemed—as far as she could tell—to cease to exist. Bellairs was kind to her, paying her every possible attention, but he never took her hand as of yore and pressed it in one of his, nor did he look into her eyes with the loving-kindness of for mer days. These things the unhappy woman believed were reserved for Sheila and Sheila alone. Bellairs could not pet the pretty girl enough, but he never turned to his wife with the old dearly longed-for look in his eyes. Moreover, there was no douht but that Peter Bellairs, K-.C., no longer absolutely trusted Margaret. It was he who paid the bills as they...

Those of us who have not he en pre sented at Court know all about it, in a few cases, from our friends, but for the most part from newspapers and weekly periodicals. Sheila Danver's debut differed from that of other girls in two respects. In the first place, the extreme simplicity of her ■' dress—which, notwithstanding the Court train and feathers, was made precisely after the Duchess of Tewkesbury's direction—was remark able, and, in the second, she wore the most magnificent pearls of any debu tante and looked, neverthelss, almost like a child. The whole affair went . off with the usual eclat, or perhaps i one may say, want of eclat. The Duchess of Tewkesbury, who was a particular friend of Her Majesty's, surveyed Sheila as she entered her presence, ana, without a moment's hesitation, removed the ...

MIRBOO v. YINNAR. On the teams lining up, it was easily noticed the combinations were not near . vV .as strong as they were last season. The ' Mirboo team especially showed a great falling off. Four such players as Roy Farmer, Herb-Bear, .Mick and Martin Cain were greatly missed. S. Fairburn, P. Bugg, P. Schoulier and F. Stone were missing from Yinnar's ranks—four •as fine players that were in the compe tition Jast year. The first-named three have left the Yinnar district for good, but there is a chance of Stone return ing. Yinnar had several new men, two of them—Allan Fairburn and Small — playing great games. Mirboo also had I a lot-of new blood. Two of them— P. Crutchfield (who used to play for Boolarra) and \V.. Devereaux showed J out real well, and will be of great as sistance. Of the other new men, none showed much form, but Jim Verdori marked well and should develop into a good man. Mirboo in a few weeks' time are expected to' have a strong 18 together.

A Great Corrective - NOT A CURE-ALL. It is not claimed that Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills are a cure-all, but as a Corrective of disorders o£ the Blood, Stomach, Liver, and. Kidneys, they a're unexcelled. They purify the Blood, cleanse the Stomach, and put life into the Liver, and stimulate the Kidneys to perform their pro l.or functions, and will prevent many of the ailments so common if taken ■ occasionally to keep the system in proper working order. In thousands of homes Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills are the sole family remedy for all general complaints. Those who have never tried them will fin:J neighbours, friends and relatives who can testify to the wonderful corrective influence of these Pills. It is from the little irregularities of the system that the common ail ments arise. Coming evils cast their shadows before them, and Na ture gives many indications of the approach of these complaints, which, if treated at once, may be warded off.
