A VICAR'S "DRINK POINTS." [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 16 April 1914

VICAR'S "DRINK POINTS." The Kev. George Denver, vicar of St. Paul's Church, Blackburn, issued some novel "drink points" in his parochial letter for November. He stated: - The man who can afford to set drunk is too rich. The best thing to keep in the beer bottle is the cork. If you get the best of whisky it will got the best of you. The man who tried to drown his sorrow in drink found that it could swim. It costs a man more to have a seat in a public-house than to have a seat in the church. It takes a long time to age whisky, but it won't take long for whisky to age you.

"Home." [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 16 April 1914

"Home." lie had been around from church to church trying to find a congenial congregation, ;ind finally he stopped in a little church just as the con gregation read with the minister: "We have left undone thoso things which wo ought to have done, and wo have done those things which we ought not to have done." The man dropped into a pew with a sigh of relief. "Thank goodness," ho said, "I've found my crowd at last." It has been said that speech has boon given (o women to conceal tlfir thoughts, but it seldom even con ceals their thoughtlessness. For six months a vicar in the North has been trying to get a curate. "We know many old maids who have been trying for years. Moat things we haven't the slight est right to are rather pleasant.

BUYING NEW IMPLEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 16 April 1914

BUYING NEW IMPLEMENTS. In buying new implements or ma chines, every mau will 'be guided by Ilia own experience or fancy. We find one man swearing by a certain make of machine, and the next neighbor by another make, both claiming that their machine is best, and maybe it is, ac cording to conditions and usage. In considering the various points in fa vor of any machine, one should always take into account the accessibility of each part. One lias oft^n spent an hour or more in trying to get at some part needing repair while the actual jo!> has only taken 10 minutes to Jo. A Scottish farmer recently paid a visit to a South of England cattle allow, and while walking around got talking with a native farmer. Neither could well understand what the other said. The Scotsman got a little net tled at this, and put it down to the Englishman's stupidity. "Man," he said at last, "yer cows moo a' right, and yer cocks craw quite plain, but I'm hanged if I can mak' you oot."

CHAPTER XXYIII. The Cause Celebre Ends. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 16 April 1914

CHAPTER XXYIII. The Cause Celebre Ends. I'ublic curiosity had been whetted by the first clays o£ the trial. Tlio whole story, from llrst to last, was so extraordinary and romantic a cne. Hot arguments and altercations oc cupied those of the public who had sufficient leisure to discuss the events of the passing hour. Such a ro mance had not been crystallised into actual, real fact for many a. long day. Wars and rumors o£ wars were in abeyance for the time being. Over the family meals, from the highest '.o the lowest in society, the Montana r case was excitedly, sometimes pas sionately discussed. Many espoused the cause of the supposed murderer, and, against all moral or religious law, upheld that justifiable homicide, if in deed Charles Daunco were actually dead, was to be lauded rather than condemned. Others, r'gid in their ac cepted canons of right and wrong, de fended the victim of Lord Montamor'a summary revenge-held that every unit had the right to act for his oi lier own benefi...

CHAPTER XXVII. A Bolt from the Blue. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 16 April 1914

CHAPTER XXVII. A Bolt from the Blue. The trial began at the 01(1 Bailey some months after the magistrates liad decided to submit the charge to a superior court. "Within the court the atmosphere was heavy. The lamps burned sullen ly, shadows gathered in corners, yet there was little about the groups in the well of the court suggestive of the fact that a man, ami a peer of the realm, was about to be tried for his life. The many barristers, ali who could spare time from their own affairs to be present at this causo celebre, were there, talked with much animation, if in subdued tones, their heads together like so many eauli -flowers-some with their hands clasp ed under their gowns looking vastly like ravens or big crows. Now and ?then a laugh made Gwendolen, seat ed in a corner of the court, Miss £)urn -ford at her side, wincc and quiver. ..Ronald, who was somewhere 011 the buck benches, had tried to prevent her from being present. But she was firm. Her anguish that she had been Hie act...

A PARABLE OF MODERN BABYLON. There was ;t boy, ami his father said unto him, "My .son, work to day, for the time cometh when you must leave school." And he said, "Yea, father I will study this even ing." lint a chum came round, and in the heat of "knuckle-up" the les sons were forgotten.

CHARACTER IN YOUR THUMBS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 23 April 1914

CHARACTER IN YOUR THUMBS. Just as the chin gives qualities to the face, so the thumb marks tne personality of the hand, and is an unerring index to a man's natural strength or weakness of character. The man with a long, straight thumb, square at the tip, jpossesses ! good mental capacity, and'!,c.~n al j ways be relied .upon to carry out successfully any work with which he may be entrusted. His temperament is even and judicial; he is a born governor of men, overcomes difficul ties, carries himself with dignity, and by his ability to concentrate all his faculties upon the matter in hand, combined with his tenacity of pur pose, rapidly becomes a power among his fellows. If the thumbs be long, thick, and heavy at the tip, with the joints prom inent, a tyrannical and cruel nature is indicated, everything being viewed from an intensely selfish standpoint.. A short, straight thumb shows ob stinacy "and driving power. If very thick and heavy at the'tip, a brutish, unreasoning disposition w...

In passing, 1 think it just as well to mention that in China it is not necessary to have any medical train ing n,' pass any qualifying examina tion to become a doctor, but the aver- , age Chinese medico has usually pre pared himself by careful perusal of books written for that purpose pre vious to establishing \ himself as a curer of ills. Of course the success of his practice depends largely on his ability to cure. * But there is no law in China to prevent an unqualified man from practising.

A CURIOUS PROCESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 23 April 1914

A CURIOUS PROCESSION. lu the deep pine forests of Norway the wood-cutters sometimes find a serpentine object, fifty feet long, crawling slowly over the ground. If they did not know that it was made up -of millions of little worms, they might he frightened by its peculiar appearance. ? These worms, called the sciara, gather during July aud August in' large numbers, preparatory-to migrat ing in search of food or for change of condition. When setting out . on this journey, they stick themselves to gether and form a huge serpentine mass, often reaching a length of be tween forty and fifty feet aud several inches in thickness. ." As the sciara is oniy on an average about three thirty-seconds of an inch in length, and barely wider than a fine needle, the number required to compose a line of the size above men- j tioned is enormous. Their pace is very slow, and upon meeting an obstacle, sucli as a stick or stone, they will either writhe over or around it. sometimes breaking into bodies for...
