Hilling the voyage he gained much useful knowledge of mining finance, and tile working of the stock markets generally, through the medium of the .«hll>'s library. So, when one tine after noon lie pushed open the ornate swing door which admitted to the oflice of the company, lie was fully primed for a stormy interview with Blakeley. He found himself In a large, lofty apart ment, furnished with highly-polished and obviously expensive ollice fittings. To his left was a glass-panelled door, labelled "Private," doubtless the e.n iranee to Blakeley's sanctum.

A lew odd lota followed at the same figure. Then came a pause. Two-and-threepencc failed to uncover more than fifty shares, but 2/G brought out five hun dred. Then the fun commenced. It was known that Blakelc-y had vanish ed, and that circumstances had satis fied the market that Woolainucks, as speculative counters, were dead ao doornails. All sorts of rumors were flying arouiul, but as yet the unknown buyer's identity had not been dis closed. Shrewd dealers argued that, whoever he might he, he was not out for mere frolic.

ODDS AND ENDS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 16 April 1914
ODDS AND ENDS. Learn to laugh. A good laugh is bel ter than medicine. Learn how to tell a story. A well told story is as welcome as a sunbeam in a sick room. Learn to keep your (roubles to your self. The world is too busy to care f or your ills and sorrows Learn to stop croaking. If vou can not see any good in the world, keep the bad to yourself. Learn to hide your pains and aches under a pleasant smile, iso one cares to hear whether you have the earache, headache, or rheumatism. Don't cry. Tears do well enough in novels, but they are out of place in real life. Learn to meet your friends with a smile. The good-humoren man w woman is always welcome, but iht dyspeptic or hypochondriac is no! wanted anywhere, and is a nuisance a.1 TTCn. A bonnet covered with birds does 110! sing, but it makes a man whistle when the bill monies in.
