A WANDEBING CLOUR HOPE DEFEfiEED AGAIN Blue Skies in the North. Mount Gambier 22 Points. ' 'The- western sky loomed up black this morning, and citizens early astir cheerfully viewed the prospect of rain at last. For the third or fourth time, however, during the last few weeks it vanished almost as quickly as it came, and by 10 o'clock, ex cept for .a few fleeting clouds, the city again- nestled beneath its -dome of blue. Only a wandering cloud sped across the metropolitan area, leaving a thin trace of moisture here and ihere. North Adelaide scored the highest ave rage with a dewy fall of 14 points.

DREAD DROUGHT. Will It Continue? Hope for the Crops. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 25 May 1912
DREAD DROUGHT. : Will It Continue?. Hope for the Crops. . With the rain still holding off, the ques tion whether the season of 1912 is to be a failure is becoming one of urgency and of vital interest to every section of the com munity in South Australia. Mr. Clement Wragge predicts droughts till 1913, with a saving clause that his calculations may be up*-t by solar disturbances, and those who have faith in his forecasts are sin cerely hoping that the sunspots will exer cise a beneficial influence on the rain sup ply. ' The season Is late, but as far as agricul ture is' concerned it -does not follow that it will be a bad one. A stage, howevev. has been reached, when the breaking of the drought cannot come too quickly, and if the rain is .delayed much longer! it wi'l reed an. exceptionally long -winter -and a wet spring to give She crops- .a»fanvyield.

LARGS BAY ORPHANAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 25 May 1912
fcABGS BAY ORPHANAGE. . Archbishop O'Eeily,who is looting very ill, opened the new School in connection with the Largs Bay Orphanage on Siiii dav. There was an immense crowd pre sent, Tvhich filled the new building to overflowing. In spite of his ill-health, Tffjg Grace delivered an excellent address, in the opening of which he spoke of the great love which a man should have for his wife. There were, he said, 70 little orphans in the institution, and the good sisters of St. Joseph were doing their best to make up for the loss which the little ones had sustained. Their work was gra tuitous—a labour of love— for they recsiv edjnothing beyond their keep. ' The chil clren~were housed in clean and healthy surroundings, and everything was done to make their lives bright and happy. In the Goodwood Orphanage there were nearly 100 little souls to provide for. It was at big family,' and a problem which they would be unable to face themselves but for the noble generosity of their many benefact...

SHORT STORY. BUSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 25 May 1912
SHORT STORY. 'BUSES. (By E. KENNETH BROWN.) Do you know that there are so many Tjuses in London that if they were to form a procession, when one end of- it was at the Bank the other would be in the middle of next week? And that so many 'bus tickets are used in a year that they would make a band one foot broad all round the earth, and there would still be enough left over to paper the inside of St. Paul's. Why any one should want to paper' the interior of St. Paul's with 'bus tickets I don't know — except perhaps to hide the mosaic 'decorations'— but if you are going in for the picturesque statistics business you have to bring St. Paul's in somewhow. It is just like those advertise ments in the paper— they may begin with anything, from Shakspeare to top hats, but they are bound to end up with pills. Now, omnibuses are divided into three main classes— General Omnibuses, Road Cars, and interesting archaeological re lies. The advantage of the last descrip tion of vehicles is that you ca...
AMERICANS FAIL TO GET TREASURE. Independence Table Stays in Germany. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 25 May 1912
AMERICANS FAIL TO GET TREASURE. Independence Table Stays in Germany. Fruitless efforts have just been made by some Americans living in Germany (telegraphed the Berlin correspondent of an American paper on April 6) to recover possession by purchase of one of the most important American historic treasures, the old oaken table on which the Declaration of Independence was signed. This table, or desk, has, it appears, been for many years in the hands of a Bis marck family, having been presented to Prince Bismarck by a group of German American admirers. It is now in the Bismarck museum at Schonhausen, near Berlin. The title is vested in Princess Her bert von Bismarck, the statesman's widowed daughter-in-law.
HOBBIES OF RICH MEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 25 May 1912
HOBBIES OF EICH MEN. Several years ago John D. Rockefeller was paragraphed in the newspapers, an- spoken of by his friends as a physica wreck. He couldn't eat nor sleep, and they said his nerve was gone. His hair came out, and altogether he presented a picture to the .imagination that was, to say the least, unlovely. But he went west to California, and there, in the sunny vaQeys of Pasadena, a miracle was worked which restored youth, health, and vigour to the talL spare frame of the richest man in the world, and did for him what all his millions had been unable to do. And this miracle was simply the -miracle of St. Golf. Thin is why John Rockefeller has a hobby, for he awes his very life to the game which he first learned to play in the far west, and which he has pursued since with an ardour which has made him a real expert. As soon as he came bade from California he saw to it that his pala tial home, Forest Hills, in Cleveland, was fitted with golf links, that a hundred de signs of...
COMMERCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 25 May 1912
COMMERCIAL. Anxiety is being generally expressed in trading circles at the absence of rain, stockholders being driven to extreme mea sures to keep live stock in heart. It is now certain the lambing- will- be a com parative failure, owing to absence of young feed. Wheat and -other grain growers, although ? hoping to _ experience early showers, have ho occasion for uneasiness for some time to come, and they are tak ing advantage of the present spell of dry ?weather to thoroughly1 work, their land and to more carefully and leisurely at tend to seeding operations. There will be a largely increased area under culti vation this season, especially in the newly settled districts, where clearing has been going on for many months. Wheat market this week has been without material change, and has not ex hibited much activity. Buying price_ to farmers is based upon 4/ at Port Adelaide, and 3/11$ at outports; but wheat is not being sold by farmers with any freedom. Some parcels . between merchant...
SELECTING A DAIRY COW. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 25 May 1912
SELECTING A DAIRY COW. (Written exclusively for 'The Mafl..') It is generally admitted that the only sure way to secure the most profitable covfS is by subjecting the herd to a test with the scales and babcock tester. How ever readily this method may be carried out upon, the farm, it is hardly practic able when purchasing at auction; hence it is, indeed, important to the buyer that he possess a practical knowlede of what constitutes true dairy form, which is to tally distinct from that of beef. I do not intend herein to discuss or in any way enter into the never-ending 'Battle of the breeds,' but to indicate the 'most valu able external points which are usually found in good dairy cows. Commencing with age, I would recom mend buying on the second or third calf, aged four to sis: years. See that the appearance is good, which is indicated by general health, vigour, and constitution (good heart measurement, &c). In form see to it that the barrel or body is deep, large, and capa...
THE QUEEN OF FLOWERS. ARRANGEMENT OF THE ROSES, COLOUR SCHEMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 25 May 1912
THE QUEEN OF FLOWERS. By 'Greenleaf.' (Written Exclusively for 'The Mail.'} ARRANGEMENT OF THE ROSES, COLOUR SCHEMES. Where order in variety we see. And where, though all things differ, all agree. No more beautiful description could be given to thj ideal garden, or to the rosery. Contrasts in colour must be executed cor rectly, and when this is done are very beautiful. Crimson and yellow, scarlet and white, give fine effect, but several plants of each particular variety must be grown together to give the effect by mass ing. A row of rose plants, alternating the colour plant by plant, is a failure as a colour scheme, and is too constantly seen in this 'City of Culture or . Floricul ture.' A charming arrangement, as recom mended by a famous lady landscape gar dener of world-wide fame, is that of gra dation of colour. Leading off with the deep orange tints, then into lighter yellow shades to cream: to white; then flesh and blush-pink, and from deeper shading rose and carmine pinks into...

I The Red Streak SERIAL STORY (By WUMOT KAYE.) ALL BIGHTS RESERVED. CHAPTER YTL, (Confirmed). 'That's why she gave you her friend Ship. She'd always be a pal to any one that was down. I've never met any one . who impressed ine so instantly. And she's hut a. child.' 'A gift of God,' Basil whispered; but Swayne heard, and looked away. In his heart he showered blessings upon Joan's head; but, still, he could not re frain from continuing his investigation. 'Some day she'll make a man gloriously happy,'' he ventured. , 'She's only a child/' Basil .answered impatiently; and he was not pleased Dy the remark. . i^_c_j But Swayne's curiosity was sabsnea. It was late when they reached Ifjer pool, but neither of them felt inclined for Bleep, and they stayed up until a late hour talking of the future. 'If I can't make a living out of the writing, perhaps I'll come out and join you,' Swayne said reflectively. 'You will succeed all right.' 'I believe so, if only I can stick it out. I am beginning...
CHAPTER VIII. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 25 May 1912
CHAPTER Vm. Sir Hilary Stanton, K.C.M.G., had the reputation of being a strong Tna^il anc the Government officials of the Gold Coast were of the opinion that his re putation was not belied. In such a cli mate there is a. very natural slackness, but the Governor made no allowances. His standard was as high as that re quired at Ceylon or Cyprus — to mention the Meccab of the high dignitaries of the colonial service; and ne was in the habit of dealing severely with the man who was las or made mistakes. The dining room of Ghristiansborg Castle was large and, comparatively speak ing, cool; moreover, his Excellency — and the hospital — managed to secure ice from the mail steamers, and therefore Basil had the pleasure of drinking champagne that was not lukewarm. Dinner was over, and Sir Hilary le- the way to the smoking room, followed by the padre and Basil; his aide-de-camp, Capt. Sinclair, staying behind to give directions to the servants. 'You'll find some rather quaint orna ments on th...

INTERSTATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 25 May 1912
INTERSTATE. At Ballarat a serious case of gangrene in the stomach is being treated by Dr. Chaplin. Several pieces of human skin were necessary in the operation, and a number of people responded to the ? re1 quest— at 5/ per strip. Others have volun tarily given, skin from their arms without payment. The Perth tramways, which are looked upon as the most obsolete in Australia, may be purchased by the Western Aus tralian Government. The Government proposes to find the necessary money in return for the municipality's surrender ing their rights. It is prepared to give them 3 per cent, of the gross faiUnpa dur ing the currency of the present contracts, after which Parliament will decide whe ther the arrangement shall be continued.

THE RED WIDOW EXPLAINS. Madame Steinheil Gives her Version. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 25 May 1912
THE RED WIDOW EXPLAINS. Madame Steinheil Gives her Version. The 'affaire Steinheil,' like the 'af- faires' Dreyfus and Humbert, will al ways pass the comprehension of the ordi nary Briton. These are mysteries of a peculiarly Parisian order, in which poli tics, love, crime, and greed are so min gled by the up-to-date journalism of the boulevards as to create a bewildering at mosphere of unreality. 'My Memoirs,' a book written by Madame Steinheil, and dealing largely with the murders of her mother and husband — crimes for which she was tried and acquitted — shows that the mysterious 'affaire Steinheil' was even more of a mystery than the average man would suppose. The really interesting part of her -career (says an English exchange) when, as a young married woman she had all Paris at her feet, she passes over too lightly and too rapidly. Her friendships witn the artistic and literary lions of the French capital, and the stories she tells of tnem, make \'ery interesting reading. Franco...
