The Grateful Father. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 14 May 1914

The Grateful Father. A young man, at the risk of his life, saved a beautiful girl from drowning. Her grateful father seized the rescuer of his daughter by the hand, and, in a voice trembling with emotion, said: "Noble youth, to you I am indebted for everything that makes life dear to me. Which reward will you take —fifty thousand pounds or the hand of my daughter?" "I'll take the daughter," replied the heroic rescuer, thinking thereby to get both the girl and the money. "You have well chosen," replied the grateful father. "I could not have given you the fifty thousand pounds just yet, anyhow, as I have not lai-.l up that amount, being only a contri butor to the magazines; but my daughter is yours for life. Bless you, my children."

HOTEL FOR "DOWN-AND-OUTS." [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 14 May 1914

HOTEL FOR '^DOWN-AND-OUTS." An hotel for "down-and-outs," which has just been opened in Chicago by Mr. Charles Dawes, a millionaire bank president, is filled every night, while many are turned away for lack of accommodation. Mr. Dawes erecteI the house at a cost of £20,000, in memory of his son Rufus, who was drowned. The hotel, the "Chronicle" says, provides a bath and a night's lodging for 2V:>d., while private rooms can be secured for 5d. The rules of the house are framed so as not to hurt the pride of any of the guests. Soup can be obtained for a penny, coffee at the same price, and other food in pro portion. The place is a godsend to Chicago's poor workers, many of whom are out "of employment at pre sent. E>rery night the place is storm ed by those who wish to get in out of the cold, a line of nearly 500 men awaiting entrance. The house ac commodates only . 300, and the strug gles for priority of place in the line are pitiful to behold.

WHICH END OF A POST SHOULD BE UP. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 14 May 1914

WHICH END OF A POST.SHOULD BE UP. It is a common belief among farm ers that a post will last longer if set' in the ground the reverse of the way n grew in the tree, in other words, with the butt end up. Accordingly, one sees many posts, especially end and gate posts, with the small end down. The supposition is that sap in a tree is always ascending, or at leist that it is easier for the sap to go up than down. Consequently, it is argued, turning a post upside down tends to prevent the rise of water, helps to keep the wood dry, and, therefore, renders it less liable to de cay. As a matter of fact, sap or water can flow in either direction with equal facility and the popular notion to the contrary is incorrect. Careful experiments on the relative durability of post timbers have been made by the Ohio Agricultural Experi ment Station (says the "Scientific American") and the above questio:. was considered. One fence in par ticular contained 15G black locust posts, of which 86 were set wi...

NAPOLEON AND SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 14 May 1914

NAPOLEON AND SCIENCE. We think of Napoleon as the great Lord of War, the butcher of human lives, the builder of a great empire, built only to fall even before the death of its founder. It is well to remember that his gen ius was great also in other most last ingly fruitful fields. He was not only a great warrior, but also a great states-? man—and as such he did not fail to re-' alise the importance to the community of arts and sciences. Writing to the astronomer Oriani, from Milan, which he had entered in triumph, Napoleon said: "The sciences which do honor to the human mind and the arts which em bellish life and perpetuate great achievements for posterity, should be especially honored under free govern ments. "... I invite the scholars to meet and to give me their opinions as to the means that should be taken, and the needs to be fulfilled, in order to bring new life and activity into the sciences and the fine arts. Those who wish to go to France will be received with dis tinction ...

EPIDEMIC DISEASE. "NIP IT IN THE BUD." [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 14 May 1914

EPIDEMIC DISEASE. " NIP IT IN THE BUD." "It's catching"—this is what people say when a malady spreads among them as fire spreads in dry grass ; the phrase states a fact without explanation, which is a pity, because if once you understand why " it's catching," you can prevent it catching instead of having to cure it—cure is often impossible, and is expensive. Now you can understand the flame running through grass, but you can only see the spread of disease by its results, because disease is spread by living germs or seeds, too small to see, and so light that air can carry and distribute them; the only way to prevent Disease Germs "catching" is to kili them. To kill an invisible foe may seem difficult; but in this case it is easy and cheap, for you can kill Disease Germs by meeting them at every point with something in hourly use and immediately fatal to them. Science has given us this in Lifebuoy Royal Disinfectant Soap, and its germ-killing power in hospitals and sanitation has stam...

A Persuasive Tongue. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 14 May 1914

A Persuasive Tongue. At school in Cornwall, Mr. Rudyard Kipling, never a brilliant scholar, was known as "Gigs" (i.e., "gig-lamps," meaning spectacles), and was esteem ed because he won the confidence of an austere spinster who kept the lo cal tuckshop, with the help of three cats. She hated the college youths, grudgingly took their cash, and stern ly denied them credit. But "Gigs" went round one day, and, while his companions were bursting v icii sub dued laughter, he blandly "talked cat" to the old lady, and succeeded in win ning her confidence to such an extent that his name—the only one—was placed on her books.

Something to Help. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 14 May 1914

Something to Help. When the Kaiser announced to Prince von Buelow that he had deci ded to appoint him Chancellor of the Empire, he was surprised to see a shadow of disappointment cross the statesman's face. ' What's the matter?" he demanded. "Are you not satisfied?" "Pardon me, sire," replied the Prince, "I did not wish to appear un grateful, but I was thinking of my wife. I know that she detests the im mense Chancellor's palace, where we shall have to live, and she will want the whole of the interior thoroughly cleaned and redecorated. I am afraid, therefore, that we shall have to pass the next two or three months in the midst of cleaning operations." "Don't worry about that, my dear von Buelow," replied the Kaiser. "Present my best compliments to the Princess, and tell her that I shall have much pleasure in helping her to. make the task of cleaning easier for her." The new-made Chancellor thanked him, and retired, certain that the Kaiser would place, a regiment of cleaners at thei...

What It Meant. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 14 May 1914

What It Meant. A good story is being told of a Parliamentary candidate who is "nur sing" a Sussex constituency in view of the next election. He was earnest ly expounding the emancipation of the laborer to an agricultural audience, and was approaching the heart of the subject, when he noticed that the countrymen looked uneasily at one another. Could it be that he had not made the necessity of the great deliv erance clear to their minds. He re-' traced the steps, and enforced some of the prelinvnary points over again. The uneasiness of the audience visi bly increased. At last one stalwart cottager rose and made for the door. It was a sig nal for a general movement. The elec tors bore the candidate no ill-will— they simply filed out. He wiped his brown, and turned in despair to the chairman. "What does it mean?" he asked. "I called them to liberty, and they turn their backs on me!" "It means," said the chairman, "that they fully appreciate your prin ciples, but it is nearly ten o'clock...

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

Spiteful. "My husband considered a very long time before he proposed to me. He was very careful." "Ah, it's always those careful peo ple who get taken in!" Time was when there were no look ing-glasses. In those days men grew long beards and women wore th^ir hair flowing. When the looking-glass came men shaved themselves to dis cover what they were like; Mnd (hen it was that women began to worry whether their hats were on straight. There has never been a problem that has caused such waste of time or so much distraction as this question of the straight hat. Some women like children, some like charities, and some like men.

The man gave a weary smile and replied, "If you 'ad only been 'arf the woman you are, I might 'ave 'ad a try."

A Mark of Nationality. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 14 May 1914

A Mark of Nationality. Sir David Gill, the famous astrono mer, was once emphasising the extra ordinary care and minuteness with which astronomical observations were taken. One observation, he said, was rather similar in its extreme minuteness to attempting to see the hundredth part of the diameter of a threepenny-bit that was a mile away. "One can see that you're a Scots man," retorted one of lus hearers. "Nobody else would bother about the hundredth part of a threepenny-bit a mile away!"

AMUSING INCIDENTS. ' A Unique Subscription. Dean Hole told a capital story. of John"Bright. A witty and persistent clergyman was urging Mr. Bright to subscribe towards rebuilding his church, and got the natural reply that, as a Quaker, Bright could hardly be expected to give for the purpose. The clergyman replied that the building- must be pulled down first, and that perhaps he would like to sub scribe to that part of the process. Ac cordingly, Mr. Bright subscribed £10.
