CHAPTER XV. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 27 February 1914

CHAPTER XV. The family was gathered together ill the delightful sitting-room at Southbourne, overlooking the promen ade. .Mr. Gordon Price, who had con sumed large quantities of champagne since the departure of the bride and bridegroom and the suppression of a telegram, was inclined to restlessness, and had just announced his intention of obtaining a breath of fresh air and asked Philip to accompany. The shadows of evening were deepening. Mrs. Price was on the sofa. Al ready she liad complained dolefully of missing Queeuie, and had been told by her husband—with intense irony —not to exhibit selfishness. She ought to be thankful that her daughter was happily married to a worthy fellow —Michael, to wit, and God bless him! Beryl sat in a shadowed corner, thankful that no one as yet had sug gested turning on the lights. ■When the ne'er-do-well sou and the ne'er-do-well father reached the front door, a man on the other side was about to ring the bell.

THE QUACK. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 27 February 1914

THE QUACK. By Laura L. Runyon, in the "Smart Set." His medical course was taken at one of those small colleges since made infamous by the investigations of the committee appointed by Congress to standardise medical schools. But at tile time the Quack Doctor began practice, any degree of M.D. from a college which spent two whole years in teaching medical science was accepted by the State authorities as a sufficient guarantee; and as to the general public, they never even thought to ask "Where has the doctor studied?" He never intended to lie a quack doctor, either, lie wanted to be a thoroughly up-to-date physician. He longed to cure all diseases. He had a deep sympathy with sickness of any sort. Circumstances forced him into the quackery business. Of course he was poor when lie started his medical education—other wise he would have sought the best college in the country, with the long est course and the best hospitals at tached. He had to earn his way while lie studied—and his mothe...

Hither to each school organised its own outing, hut last year the monster gathering proved so successful that this annual outing is not to be allowed to drop. It toadies the children to fratenr.se, and enjoyment is heightened when hundreds meet, as was the gratifying record on Wednesday last. The gather ing was not as " monster" as it would have heel! had arrangements broil earlier taken in hand. The trouble, was the long series of district fixtures, which have every Wednesday car marked for a long time ahead, and to have fixed the date later would liave meant colder, and probably disagree able weather.

THE LUCKY SNEEZE KING OF SOTTO VOCE (From "The Westminister Gazette") [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 27 February 1914

THE LUCKY SNEEZE KING OF SOTTO VOCE (From "The "Westminster Gazette") 1 A king of Sotto Voce once had the misfortune to offend ft wizard of his acquaintance, with the result that he was visited with the Curs© of the Six Categories. This was quite as big u thing as it looks, for It meant that six attempts would be made upon the king's person by a specially chosen demon. At the lirst atempt the king would lose his right hand; at the sec ond, his arm; third, his left hand; fourth, his left arm; fifth, his right leg; and last, his left leg. The king, having had some experi ence of wizards and their pet curses ; knew that his only chance was to make the demon-in-charge aim his shafts crookedly. This can done by a smart mortal, but it is necessary to de cide upon a plan quickly, for demons are always very keen to begin their work. They are, however, not al lowed to aim until they have sent a letter to their intended victims; that is one of the laws relating to curses which you will lind i...

No salary. Board and lodging In return.. Must do own room. Steady. Age under 30. Excellent references. In order to prevent disappoint I think the advertiser should explain clearly all that is meant by the phrase "gentle man by birth and education," as some applicants for this remarkably good thing might be able to pass the test in regard to gentle birth and then fail owing to Insufficient education. On the other hand, a man might have know ledge and skill in all learning and wis dom, and yet be merely the deplorable product of the lower middle-classes.

For a while tho pleasures anil harm of such smoking were discussed, and then one said. "Well, my cigarettes arc a great com fort to mo. I cannot do anything with out them." And another, an eminent medical man, answered, "Yes, they arc a mild drug. Probably they will do you but little harm; but they translate action into thoughts o£ action, and thoughts ; of action into dreaming!" His words remained in my head and refused to be ousted. And now, as 1 sit down to write this, they have re turned to mo with greater force and clearer import than ever. So many of us are mental cigarette fiends! Do yon understand what I mean? Not that we actually smoke cigarettes, but that so many practise some method or another of "translat ing: action into thoughts of action, and thoughts of action into dreams." and of finding a comfort—a drugged, un healthy comfort—In so doing....
