MR E. W. ALABONE DEATH OF SPECIALIST [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 19 February 1914

MR E. W. ALABONE DBAT1H OF SPECIALIST I am sorry to see tbe death an nounced of Mr E. TV. Alabone, the well known specialist in pulmonary con sumption, whose name has often figured in the pageB of "Truth" (says "Truth"). Mr Alabone'a story is an In teresting1 and instructive one. While still a young man he devised a treatment of consumption which had very remarkable success. He had, however, one or two indiscreet friends on the press who puffed his perform ances in a way that attracted- the notice of the guardians of professional "ethics," and he was brought before the General Medical Council and struck off the register. That generally .means extinction and ruin, but Mr Alabone fought on, and fought successfully. On the principle that you may as well be hung for a sheep as a lamb, he availed himself of his freedom to start advertising in earnest; and he built up for hlmae'f a large practice, which continued to flourish down to the time of his death. The trial of Mr Alabone by the Ge...

ROMANCE OF AN ISLAND RELIC OF IRISH HISTORY [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 19 February 1914

ROMANCE OF AN ISLAND RELIC OP IRISH HISTORY An interesting: provision as to the future of Coney Island—one of the four Islands in Lough Neagh—is made In the will of the late Viscount Charl mont, who left unsettled personal estate of the value of £4976. His remains are to be burled on the Island, and he left £36 a year for pay ment of a keeper, who will live on the island and keep the "old tower walls and my last resting place in good' order."

MORALS OF THE NURSERY OXFORD PROFESSOR'S VIEWS Professor F. C. S. Schiller In an article in the January "Hibbert Journal" says:—THE FAMILY [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 19 February 1914

1 MORALS OF TIE NURSERY OXFORD PROFESSOR'S VIEWS Professor F. C. S. Schiller In an article In the January "Hlbbort Jour nal" says:— THE FAMILY - The family Is the only mechanism which1 human wit has ever contrived that has attractiveness enough to bind 1 the indlvidual'8 caprice to travel In l regular orbits, and to build up an or- j derly society out of the gravitation of social units. It is a successful mech anism Just because it is so much more than a mechanism. It is a biological necessity and a psychological craving, 1 and a training ground for every de velopment of ethical, spiritual, and ] economic life. The family lies at the roots both of the school and of the factory, and of the Church, though all these'institutions have sometimes grown Into unnatural forms which In- j jure and repudiate their origin. "I remember that when I was an undergraduate we were once set an essay by Jowett, the great Master of Balliol, on the Origin of our Moral Ideas, and embarked on a great var i...

"Come out—ana nave a drink!" re peated Mr. Gordon Price, still mum bling. He, too, like Michael Thorne, had broken out into a perspiration. •'We must talk it over—pull ourselves together—it I have erred, it has been for Queenie—for my che-IId's sake!" But Mr. Gordon Price was thinking of the pension he would be entitled to as Michael's father-in-law, to say no-' thing of useful information re copper. No marriage, no pension, no comfort able old age. Tad that telegram reached Queenie, there would have been no marriage on the morrow. Both men knew that, Bven now "Come outside!" whispered Thorne. "Drink—no—you've had too much al ready!" They went out together, Mr. Price hatless. Thome's car stood at die door, out they did not enter it, crossing over to the -promenade.

CHAPTER XIV. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 19 February 1914

CHAPTER XIV. The church presented an empty and dreary appearance. One or two peo ple, scenting a wedding, had gathered outside, and a few had entered. A wedding, like a funeral, .has a 'fascina tion for some, though they have no personal knowledge of those concern ed. But the -wedding-party itself was composed only of the family and the nurse-companion who had arrived that morning to replace Queenie. One pew sufficed for them. Mrs. Price, who had spent ten pounds to advantage on her clothes, looked frail and excited. Her wan cheeks were flushed hectically, and sbe shed tears at frequent intervals. The bride and her father had not yet arrived, and Mi chael Thorne and his best man had only just taken their place at the al tar rails. The nurse companion' was seated. ■beside Mrs. Price; Beryl, also fitting ly arrayed, suffering martyrdom, was on the other-Bide of her mother. Next to her was Philip, in clothes painfully new and gloves a size too big for him. He looked as if he "would hav...

On the surface1—to an. uninitiated spectator— It would have appeared homely, human and unaffected. In reality, that kiss was almost an act of revenge. She had risen to her feet. She had not winced. She had not averted her lips. "Good-night, Michael!" she had said. "Mother's a little tared and excited." In that way she excused herself from accompanying him from the room. "Mother," she said, breaking the si lence that followed his exit, "it's time you went to 'bed. I'm going to tuck you up." She gave Mrs. P...

DOOKIE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 19 February 1914

DOOKIE; A A meeting called by members   of the Yabba North Rabbit Des- truction League, was poorly at- tended on Saturday night last. As the meeting was called in the interest of all landowners of the district; it was disappointing   to the league organisers. The rabbit seems to be becoming a great niusance again, and con- certed action is the only method by which the evil can be dealt with. Mr. Jas. Cummins occu- pied the chair and Messrs M. Smythe (secretary), D. Chilcott, W. Chilcott, R. Caroll, J. Hogan, were also present. Mr. James   Cummins was elected president, and Mr. M. Smythe, secretary. It was decided to set apart next Tuesday, 24 th inst., a day for simultaneous action in the poi- soning of rabbits.         At the meeting of members of the Presbyterian church , the matter of improvements in con- nection with the manse was dis- cussed. It was eventually deci- ded, that a working be...

THE WEATHER. A WEEK'S TRYING EXPERIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 23 February 1914

THE WEATHER. A WEEK'S TRYING EXPER IENCE. Exceptionally hot weather prevailed last week all over the Commonweath. In many districts it was accompanied bydisastrous bush fires; which added to the intensity of the heat and made the conditions more trying. The week was also characterised by high temperatures at night. As if adding insult to injury the mosquitoes were much in evi dence .and largely contributed to the misery of wakeful nights. The records of the thermome-. ter at Queen'sgardens may be in teresting to some readers, and will be worth preserving. The highest temperature recorded this month was 109 degrees, on February 6. This was the end of a hot spell beginning on Feb ruary 1, with 89 degrees, which gradually went up to 1Q0 degrees on February 4 and 102 degrees on February 5, . The neyt break of real hot wea ther started on February 14. at 94 deg., and, the readings there after until the cool change of last week end were as follow:— Feb. 15, 100 deg.; Feb. 16, 101 dcg.; Fe...
