STRIKING CONTRASTS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 9 May 1912

STRIKING CONTRASTS TO THE EDITOR. SIR,-"Johnnie Walker," in a recent issue of "The Banner," com- pares the Footscray and Werribee Shire Counncils. The comparison being against the latter body. As to road construction, apparentlyyour   correspondent is not aware that the Footscray ratepayers pay a rate of 2/6 in the £, Werribee ratepayers pay 1/3. Give Mr. Sinclair, our en- gineer, a 2/6 rate to work upon in preparing the estimates and I am confident that "Johnnie Walker" would have no cause for complaint. But what would the ratepayers of the shire say? The recent rise in the rates of this shire, from 1/ to 1/3, has not been received too kindly by many ratepayers. Double it, and I believe there would be an insurrection. Again, the Werribee Shire Is free from loans. Is Foots- cray ? "Johnnie Walker" has got   out of his depth on this matter. Yours etc; A RATEPAYER.

CONCERT AT METRO. FARM [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 9 May 1912

CONCERT AT METRO. FARM. Last Friday evening week a con- cert was held in the Metropolitan Farm Hall. The proceeds were de- voted to clearing the remainder of the debt on building. At 8 sharp the president, Mr. A. D. Rowan, took the chair, and as two of the metropolitan artistes had to catch the 10 o'clock train they gave their items early in the evening. One of the visitors, Mr. J. G . M'Nicol, a ventriloquist and variety enter- lainer, was very interesting, especi- ally to the younger members of the audience. Mr. Will Ahearn, a young gentleman with a clear bari- tone voice, gave several vocal items in good style, for which he was de- servedly encored. After Messrs. Ahearn and M'Nicol had left, the programme was continued, when music lovers had a most enjoyable time in listening to the violin se- lections rendered by Miss Dorothy Taylor, who was ably accompanied by Mrs. W. J. Calder on the piano. Miss Taylor so pljlesed the audience that in each itend a rol~etilion was lmmediately d...

A LITTLE KNOWLEDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 16 May 1912

A LITTLE KNOWLEDGE. Somo of his boys were taking but little interest in the lesson, and the teacher grew desperate. "William Smith," he slddenly de manded, "are you listening 7'" "Yes, air." "Then perhaps you can tell me where Nelson was killed 7" "Trafalgar-square." "Indeed," sareastically ejaculated the teacher, when he had recovered his breath. "Then I suppose Welling toll was killed at Waterloo Station 7' "No, sir," responded William, "that was Napoleon."

CAPPED. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 16 May 1912

CAPPED. A young wife was continuously pes tered by her mother-in-law about the way she was bringing up her first born babe. The young wife was intelligent and capable, and she" was really doing well with the child. From her mother-in law, however, she got nothing but sour advice, warnings, and veiled abuse. One day the mother-in-law, looking fixedly at the mother with her baby, on her lap, said, angrily : "A woman has no right to have a child if she doesn't know how to hold it." "No : nor a tongue either," wans the quiet reply.--- -

SECRETS OF A MARIONETTE SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 16 May 1912

SECRETS OF A MARIONETTE SHOW. --4--- Although one of the oldest forms of entertainment, very little of its act lal workings is known to the public. The general idea is that the figures are worked by wires or elastic; in reality the so-called wires are simply stout threads, called " slangs." These threads are fastened to the hands, feet, head and body of the figure, and the other end to slight pieces of wood called " crutches," which the manipulator holds in his hands-the " slangs " that work the legs and arm in one Mand, and those that work the head and body in the other. WORKING THIE " SLANGS." The( worker stands upon a raised platform at the back of the scene, and leans over the rail at the top be ing hidden from the spectators by the scene and borders. Thie " slangs " have to be heel-balled occasionally to keep them from fraying. Wnmenmaks the best and most ex pert manipulators, their bands being more delicate and sensitive; but to become an expert worker it must be learnt when y...

COMPLETE SHORT STORY. DEARER THAN HONOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 16 May 1912

OOMPL'ETH SH-ORT STORY. DEARER THAN HONOUR. "I can't believe it, lad-I can't believe it even now I" said the old Canalies crossing the wide hall with impatient footsteps and gazing gloomily out at the latticed window into the courtyard beneath. " That a nephew of mine-one who has been to me as my own son-should for swear the faith and loyalty of his ancestors, and Join himself with Roundhead rebels, base traitors to their king and country-thou art mad, Conrad l" "I can never tell you what it has cost me to do this, uncle. Nothing but the deep conviction that liberty and justice are more sacred than even the right of a king could have led me so poorly to repay all your love and kindness." The strong voice faltered a little, as the young man stooped to caress the tawny deerhound whose nose was thrust sympathetically into his hand. " Convictions I I will not hear such cant I If the boy has failed in persuading you "- his voice for a moment took on a softer tons- " it is not likely that...

CALLING A MAN A LIAR. PLACES IN WHICH IT IS A CRIME. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 16 May 1912

CALLING A MAN A LIAR. PLACES IN WHICH IT IS A CRIME. The other day a resident in Louis ville, Kentucky, expressed his opin ion to another man that be was a ed down. He commenced an 'ction for assault, but lost the case. The judge declared from the Bench that to call another man a liar was to deliver him a blow, and honourably discharged the defendant. It is a justifiable defence in many of the American States to claim that the man you have assaulted has first called you a liar. A Bill containing much a provision was introduced in the Texas Legislature some years ago, and has not yet been repealed. The senator who introduced the BilO declared that he based it on a law which makes the oflonsive use of the word a misdemeanour punishable by a .5 tfine. Calling a man a liar is not only an offence against the law in Virgin ia ;it is a crime. There is a law on the statute-books of that State which rends as follows " If any person shall, in the presence or hear ing of another, curse or abus...

Gopyrightz GENTLEMAN AND * BURGLAR. A SERIES OF EXC 'iINO DETECTIVE STORIES. By Heath Crlohton, Author of "Philip Thorn, Detective," &o PART i. THE MYSTERY OF THE HOTEL ROYAL. CHAPTER I. Since our highly satisfactory little haul of Professor Ressington'b golden treasures, Chandos and I had been " resting." At least, so far as I knew he was not exercising his pro fessional skill, for r had not joined him in any exploit for a month. My own banking account was in a healthy state, and I was happy enough for the time, spending most of my dais reading lazily and at night extracting a little excitement _'ut oL life at the Mohawks' Club, which Chandos and I had joined. Gambling, the besetting sin which had once so nearly brought me with a crash to the bottom rung of hu manity, still held me fascinated, but play at the Mohawks was not parti cularly high, and as Chandos had playfully put it, it kept me out of mischief. I had not heard from him for a week. He was wandering aimlessly ab...
