CHAPTER XXI. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 April 1914
CHAPTER XXI. Perhaps it was well for Netta that the old lady, so severely tried of late, collapsed as she was intending to en ter the house, full of resolve to "see the disappointed young bride whose wedding had been so roughly inter rupted by her relative, Gwendolen Halldare, through." Netta, forgetting herself and the crisis in her life, summoned the ser vants and the confectioner's man to her rescue-herself assisting to carry Lady Montamor to her bedroom and undressing her with tenderest solici tude while Annie rushed for the doc tor. "Oh mem! That there gipsy-'ere are 'er words hout! If it ain't haw ful! 'Is lordship called away sud dint, 'er ladyship took ill no weddin' breakfis, no nutliink! It are the ca tafalque that there 'ussy ses as would 'appen at the wedding, and no mis take!" "Will you please get a hot bottle at once, cook?" peremptorily asked Net ta.. She was chafing Lady Jlonta mor's seemingly lifeless feet. "And get a lump of ice ready it may be wanted." The wall-ey...
DISTRICT NEWS. WAGGARANDALL. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 April 1914
DISTRICT NEWS. WAGGARANDALL. (From a Correspondent), A total of one inch of rain for the week past has quite changed the aspect of things generally. The dust, which his been the bane of travellers and housekeepers, is now a thing of the past. The community have content- edly accepted this bountiful fall as the first instalment of a prosperous season, and it is hoped that their wishes may not be disappointed. Cropping ope- rations will now be proceeded with vigorously, and there promises to be an exceptional amount under cultivation this year.

YOUANMITE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 April 1914
YOUANMITE, (From Our Correspondent), Mr P. Dunne, who is working at Mr Sefton's farm, had rather a peculiar &nbsp; experience last Thursday. Ha had just unyoked his team from the disc, when the lightning (which was very vivid) struck a decayed tree, not far from where he was standing with the team. The lightning split the tree from top to bottom, and seemed to force it into the ground. If the tree had been one with many branches on &nbsp; it, some of the limbs would have been hurled far away, perhaps causing serious injury to Mr Dunne or to his horses. New grass is to be seen everywhere in this district. In a few days there will be plenty of food for cattle,
ST JAMES. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 April 1914
ST JAMES. (From Our Correspondent). A public meeting was held in the St. James Hall for the purpose of con- &nbsp; sidering the best means of procuring a new post office for St. James. There &nbsp; was a good attendance, and Mr G. &nbsp; Ellerman was voted to the chair. The chairman thought the time was ripe &nbsp; for the townspeople to push on with the matter. Mr. G . Carruthers pointed out, that, although a good sum was to be expended in repairs, the present &nbsp; building was too old to make it look any better. It was eventually resolved that a petition be drawn up for the purpose of securing signatures, and this will be presented to the proper autho- rities in due course.

DOOKIE DEVENISH RAILWAY In a letter to the " Shepparton &nbsp; Advertiser " Mr S. W. Martin writes as follows regarding the above railway connection : — " The Government has in the past been frequently urged to provide cross- country railway facilities — Dookie- Devenish for one ; and Tocumwal- Finley for another. The latter is shortly to be opened for through traffic, and it will he a big advantage to residents on both sides of the Murray. Now, since Sydney prejudices have been overcome, and Riverina producers are to hand a choice of markets and the boon of shipping from the nearest ports (Melbourne or Geelong). is it not up to the Victorian Government to fill in the Dookie-Devenish gap pf 13 miles, and so provide facilities for cross- &nbsp; country transport and passenger traffic ? It is spending £25,000 at Benalla railway junction, and a new railway from the hardwood and root crop country (Tatong) is coming into Benalla — an important railway centre. Another line...

The.v shriek and whoop with delight, and, when the enthu siasm reaches its-highest pilch, lints, coats, or other articles of clothing' are showered upon the stage as ?bouquets are flung to the favour ites in this country. A story is told of a foreigner \vlio" saw this rain of coals and sashes falling upon the stage after a thrilling scene, and, wishing to con tribute his mite, he tossed his hat over. He was willing to sacrifice that much to keep up the credit of his country, particularly as the hat .was an old one and lie had a soft cop in his pocket to fall back upon. He had reason to regret his rash ness. At the close 01" the performance the obsequious manager brought his hat back to him and asked for' a sum of money. A few inquiries eli cited the information that the arti cles thrown on the stage were mere ly pledges, to be afterwards redeem ed by money, the actors having a regular...
