AJl:joy that he. could ■wish. . He nearly caught a fish. He doesn't mind a little cold. He tells about it -while we stand And stare, -with wondering- eyes.

Mr Bennett at Spa then. Mr J:imes Bennett, M.P., ad dressed a meeting at Brutnen on the 23th ult., Cr D. H. Piice pre siding. After speaking of the successful meetings he had had up the Tambo Valley, the speak er explained the political dead lock, caused by the Government co/ning into collision with the Senate. Whilst the latter body represented areas the House of Representatives represented peo ple. The latter's constituency com posed about -29,000 electors, but the Senate was comprised of six representatives from each state. The latter body was elected in this way to safeguard the interests of the states, but could not move in the matter of taxation, could not put a Government out and could practically only review and recommend. In the last election the Lib eral party had won by one vote, but the Labor party members in the Senate were 29 to 7. The Labor party, by resigning, had practically said the Representatives must prevail, and yet the Senate by their subsequeut action had att...

He Was Ready. There was recently hailed into court a little Irishman to whom the thins waB a new experience. He was, how ever, unabashed, and wore the air of a man determined not to get the worst °£ it "Prisoner at the bar, called out the clerk, ''do you wish to challenge any of the jury?" Whereupon the Celt looked the men in the box over very carefully, and with a skilled eye. "Well, I tell ye," he finally replied, "O'im not exactly in trainin', but Oi could pull off a round or two with that fat old boy in th* corner."

Gone Again. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 8 April 1914

Gone Again. At a' certain- public school it was the custom for the- teachers to write on the blackboard any instruction they desired the caretaker to receive. One evening, while cleaning a room, • the caretaker saw written: "Find the greatest common denomi nator." "Hullo!" she exclaimed. "Is that darned thing lost again." The April number of "The Story teller" Magazine is just in. The read-1 er of this fine monthly gets splendid reading. The authors' names are a guarantee . o£ great excellence. Jus tus Miles Porman, Mrs. Baillie Rey 'nolds, Warwick Deeping, I. A. R. \Vy-| lie, Captain Shaw, J. O. Curwood write in this number. These authors could not write poorly if they tried, | and it seems as though .they are at their best, in this number. Besides the above writers H. de Yere Stac poole, author of "The Blue Lagoon," writes a long complete novel entitled "The Presentation."

ANIMALS' SPEED. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 8 April 1914

ANIMALS' SPEED. No animal is known to have exceed ed the speed attained by the horse. Instantaneous photographs of one fa mous specimen showed the full length of one complete stride of ahout 26ft. In the stride of the fastest racers the hindquarters and limbs are raised con siderably higher than the shoulders, and from this relatively great height brought downward-and forward, wide ly separated from each other, to avoid striking,, the forelegs. The hare has not in reality the speed of the dog. The dog, on the other hand, does not attain the speed of the horse. The •giraffe is said to run at the rate o£ fif teen yards per fiecond under the most favoraible conditions.

WRITTEN IN RINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 8 April 1914

WRITTEN IN RINKLES. Nothing is more damaging to beauty in woman than -worry. The worrying woman invites the hand of time to write plenty of wrinkles on her ibrow, and round her eyes and mouth; to tint her face yellow, and give dullness to the eye that no artifice can brighten. Worrying, moreover, is quite unneces sary, and is a total waste of energy which could be employed in doing something useful. Everyone knows the worrying woman the moment they see her. Her character is written in her face in wrinkles which apparently nothing short of a miracle could ob literate.

WRECKERS OF MEN AND NATIONS. The Smile and the Wile of Woman. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 8 April 1914

WRECKERS OF MEN AND NATIONS. The Smile and the Wile of Woman. Empires have fallen 'before the wiles of woman. Rome sang of the achievements of Antony. Antony look ed into the eyes of Cleopatra and laid down honor and life. Louis XV. dallied with the Pompa dour and Du Barry until his kingdom tottered. The royal roue died and left his grandson and heir a heritage of death. Mary Stuart played at love with many men until she lost her throne and at. last her head. These "women have been the lure that led men to destruction. They baffled scientists and sociologists. By all the rules of the game they should have been •wholly creatures of evil. Some were, tout that others of them were warm-hearted, impulsive and be witching to good and bad people alike is a puzzle to alienists. When face to face with the lives of these wreckers of the world, scientists hold up their hands, shake their heads and say:— "We cannot tell you about it—may be some day "we can, but not now; it is too much to expect...

"My dearest girl, I am sure I hope so," returned Miss Durnford cautious ly. "But when people have come to my age they have learnt not to think this or that. They only hope and trust." , "Don't damp my spirits or you. will have me collapsing utterly and dis gracing myself!" cr.ied Gwendolen.
