He Took Chances. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 May 1914
He Took Chances. The judge iu the wild and woolly West had declared that lie would stop the carrying of firearms in the street. Before him appeared for trial a tough youth charged with getting drunk and firing his revolver in a crowded street. "Twenty shillings and costs," said the judge. "But, your honor," interposed coun sel for the prisoner, "my client did not hit anybody." "Why, you admit that he fired the gun?" "Yes; but he fired it into the air," explained the lawyer. "Twenty shillings and costs," re peated the judge. "He might have shot an angel." Woman is an angel who seldom ap preciates a man who has not a bit of tlio devil in him.
A Modern Solomon. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 May 1914
A Modern Solomon. Another good story is told of Mene lik, by which it would appear he had studied the judicial methods of King Solomon. Two Abyssinians were gathering fruit, one up a tree shaking the branch es, and the other below collecting the fruit as it fell. A branch snapped sud denly, and the man up the tree slipped and fell. He landed on his companion on the ground, breaking the unfortun ate man's neck, but himself escaping without fatal inuries. The family of the dead man demand ed blood-money, and when the acciden tal murderer replied that he had no money they demanded his life. This the man declined to part with, and the case went before the judges, finally working its way up to the supreme tri bunal of Menelik himself. The claimants by this time refused to accept blood money even if offered, and demanded their ful right of a life for a life. "Very well," said Menelik in deliver ing judgment, "you have undoubtedly the right to claim this man's life, but the law says that t...
WIT AND HUMOR. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 May 1914
WIT AND HUMOR. Marcella: Why do you suppose Daisy Dashleigh turned her back on Count Castlecrum'ble? Waverly: I think it was to show the dimples in her shoulders. '"Fancy you grumbling about your food! I thought you said that your housekeeper cooked so well?" "Yes; but I married her, and now we keep a cook!" "So Paddy's still on sthrike?" "Yes. First he s'ihruck work, then he sthruck the boss, then he stlmick a 'cop-per,' and now he's sthriking lumps o' shtone in prison." "So you've been to France again, •Mrs. Comeup?" "Yes; it seems like we can't keep away from dear Paris. Indeed, my daughter says we're regular Para sites." Doctor^ (to patient): You've had a pretty close call. It's only your strong constitution that pulled you through." Patient: Well, doctor, remember that when you make out your bill. "No, I can't give you a job. I've as many hands now as I can find work for." "Well, that needn't' stand in your way, guv'n'or. The little I'd do wouldn't make no difference." Gent, (t...
THE TEST. STORY OF A WOMAN'S AWAKENING. I. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 May 1914
THE TEST. STORY OF A WOMAN'S AWAKENING. By Constance Enne. Cranleigh, on his side of the break Cast table, looked up wiui a sudden exclamation of dismay from the letter he was reading—a big, official-looking document. "Little woman," he said, regret fully, watching his wife's face, "I've got to leave you." She put down a morsel of toast and stared at him in prelty consternation. "Leave me?" she echoed. Then she flashed all the armor of her dimpling smile at him. "Tired of me at last, John?" she asked lightly. He laid a strong-looking brown hand over one of hers as an answer to her query. "I'm afraid it's going to be more than the usual few days this time, Midge," he said; "and I can't take you out with me—Cairo. It means a couple of months, I expect. The Chief'—he turned to the big, import ant-looking sheet again, headed Down ing-street—"The Chief says I'm to hold myself in readiness to start to day, if necessary." Her brow puckered into a frown. "But I don t see in the least why I ...
Out of the Difficulty. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 May 1914
Out of the Difficulty. A characteristic story of Dr. Parker was told the other day by a clergy man, who had it from an old minister who was much interested in Joseph Parker's early work as a local preacher. One Saturday he met Par ker, and asked bim whether he had an engagement for Sunday. . "Yes," was the reply, and Parker went on to specify the place. "Are your sermons ready, Joseph ?" asked the minister. "I have the morning sermon," was the reply, "but I am not sure about the evening." "Well, Joseph, what is your text for the morning, and how do you treat it?" Parker went over his text and the outline of his sermon. "But, Joseph," said the minister, "that is very clever, but it is "not the real meaning of the text. If you will look at the commentaries you will see that you are wrong." Parker thanked him and went his way. On the Monday the minister again met his friend. "Well, Joseph, how did you get on yesterday?" "Very well," was the reply. "How did you manage?" "Well," he said,...
III. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 May 1914
Someone in the flat below was play ing a violin, exquisitely, tenderly, and the long-drawn notes of "Salut d'Ara our" came floating up. "Does anything, even 'playing the game,' matter in a case like youra and mine?" asked Curtis. I"I—.oh, ,1 don't know," she mur mured weakly. "I—I've always 'play ed the game,' Dick; and now—it's so madly difficult. He lias been good to me." "Good!" echoed her companion, his voice tense with passion. "D'you think that's love? If he loved you, or you him, I might have gone away and said nothing. But in your heart of hearts you must know it's me you love. And to a woman like you, isn't love—love, I say—the only thing that matters?" • -- — She shivered. "John," he went on—and his tone was contemptuous almost—"is a good sort. And"—for a second the best in him rose—"it's because he's been my pal that I've held back as long as this, but he's a good deal to 'blame himself, for all the world would say, my dear, that he has simply thrust matters in to my hand...
II. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 May 1914
The dusk had fallen some time, and had almost turned to decided dark ness, as Cranleigh's wife stood by the open studio window, waiting for Cur tis to como up to dinner. She hated having her meals alone, and since her husband's departure Dick and 6he usually dined together, either at home or out at a restaurant. They had been very pleasant, all those little tete-a-tete meals, and the little jaunts that had ibeen the order of things dur ing this past two moniis of Cranleigh's absence. And It was wonderful, now she came to think of it, how quickly the time had passed. Two days later her husband 'would be back—dear, good-natured, easy-going "old John. And Dick—to-morrow Dick would be gone. She wondered curiously, as she leaned her arms on the window-sill, latching the twinkling lights on the river, that turn it by night into a -won derful enchanted land, full of myatery and fascination, just -why he was go ing off to Algiers oh this , trip; and she realised with somewhat startling sudd...
Taking Him Down. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 May 1914
Taking Him Down. To a certain Southern town, on le gal business, came.a most pompous young lawyer, who, notwithstanding his name was McNaught, had an ex cellent opinion of himself. He found it necessary to talk with Squire Gard ner, an unpolished justice, who had no good opinion of anything, and es pecially of anyone who had a good opinion of himself. The squire had never heard of his visitor till he call ed, and he was a poor hand at re membering names, but he was ail ex pert in human measurements. The young lawyer proceeded promptly to say what he had to say, the squire listening, but watching. Presently he thought it was time for him to say something. "Hold on, Mr. McCipher," he began. "My name is McNaught," the lawyer stiffly corrected him. "Excuse me, excuse me," apologised the squire, and finished his remarks. It was not long before the squire again felt called upon to speak. "Well, now, Mr. McZero he started in. "I said my name was McNaught," the lawyer interrupted sharply. A...
IV. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 May 1914
IV. Tlic woman shftuik 'back with a cry of fear, and Dick Curtis flung a pos sessive arm about her shoulders—an action which maddened the man con fronting them. "Take your vile hand from my wife, you 'brute!" he said violently. "Since you've turned up at this in opportune moment," said Curtis slow ly, "you may as well learn the truth once and for ever. If you hadn't been a blind fool—surely the simplest God ever allowed to live in this topsy turvy world—you would have known better than to go a:way and leave me in charge, so to speak, of your wife. I tried to blind myself to things, tout I was not quite strong enough; that's all. I'm only a very human, ordinary fiesh-and-blood chap, you see—not a saint, not even a level-headed old slow-coach like yourself, without any thing like real deep feeling. And your wife loves me, d'you understand, Cranleigli? It's damned hard on you, perhaps, but there it is—a sort of 'Pate/ you see. The pity or it is. we didn't all find out before you marrie...
When to water Horses. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 15 May 1914
When to water Horses. A horse should be watered bef-u-3 feoding, and never given a laige quan tity of water after a meal, for ti e simplo reason that the water wi'l wa'li tlio food out of the stomach before stomach-digestion has taken place, and the food will not bo well prepared for absorption; and, besides, it is some times the cause of colic. Thero is a popular idea that a warm horse should not bo allowed to drink, and, unliko a.great many other popu lar ideas, thero is little truth in it. If you water a warm horse in tlio or dinary way, letting him drink all that ho will, you are likely to have a foundered horse on your hands. This is especially so if, at tlje time, the horso is fatigued. Nevertheless, it is always safe to allow him from six tn ten swallows, no matter how warm ho is. If this bo given on going into the stable, and he bo allowed to stand and eat hay for an hour, and is then offer ed water, ho will not drink nearly so much as he would had none been given him before...
Lucerne after Mangels [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 15 May 1914
Lucerne after Mangels Farmers whoso mangels have beon grown on land suitable to lucerne, and who have by inter-cultivation kept the land clean, will find that after tho bill); of tho mangels are removed, if p;rf are turned in to consumo tho remain der, that such a system is an excellent ono for tho preparation of the land for Iucerno growing in spring, provided that lime manures and suitable cultiva tion are brought to bear upon the pie paration of tho seed bpd. Experience has shown the benefit of early plough ing by exposing tho soil to the influ ence of air, moisture, sunlight anci frost, for a short time before the land is finally piepared for tho seed bed. Not only by doing this is a large amount of food stored up in the soil it) an available time, but the soil becomes weathered and pulverised for a con slderablo distanco below tho surfaco enabling plants to feed over a largo area; . and by giving the tilled land time t0 sottle tho connection betwesn tho tilled soil, and tho unb...
Good and Bad Pasture. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 15 May 1914
Good and Bad Pasture. In any stretch of country one pas ture establishes a reputation as good fattening land, while another is knowu as only fit to carry storo stock 01 lambing owes. The reason for those differences is often hard to trace. In the Romsoy district of England thero occur fields of permanent pasture ca pable of fattening six or eight sheep to tho acre, while immediately adjoining may be found others of apparently tho same character, which will only keep sheep in growing condition. In the ''Jour. Agric. Soi.", June, 1912, Mr. A. D. Hall, and Dr ltussell, of- Roth anisted, describo some investigations on this subject. They compared a good with an adjoining bad-feeding pasture at threo stations. At each placo both pastures were situated in flat silt land, and appeared to have been formed in tho samo way. Thero was no regular difference in tho water content of the good and bad soils, and temperaturo differences wero small. Tho ordinary chemical and mechanical analyses oi th...
