CHAPTER XXV. AFTER THREE YEARS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 2 May 1914

CHAPTER XXV. AFTER THREE YEARS. It was on a day three years and more after the events described in the last chapter, that two strikingly beautiful women stood in front of a neat little villa and looked out on the smiling waters of the blue Medi terranean Sea. One of the women was statuesque and magnificent, and she was older by a quarter of a century. The other woman was hardly more than twenty years of age, and was of a beauty of form and face so exquisite, that the magnificent appearance of the other was scarcely apparent when contrasted with it. " How much better this is than the fashionable bustle and publicity of Nice !" said the elder of the two. " Oh, yes, dear Lady Westall, and the relief of not being every moment stared at and pointed out as a cari osity !" " The price you must pay for fame, my dear Mabel," laughed Lady Westall. ^ Violet Lisle, famous in England and on the Continent as Mabel Mars den, as the possessor of the richest and purest memo-soprano on the con cert s...

WHY WE ARE RIGHT-HANDED. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 2 May 1914

WHY WE ARE RIGHT-HANDED. One of the professors at a -well known agricultural college has figured it out that if you are left-handed it is a sign that your ancestors were not good fighters. says he. "Only one in every twenty is left-handed. Why are people right handed? They may have been born that way, it is true; but why? "Away back in the beginning the chief occupation of man was fighting. In battle he carried a shield in one hand and a weapon in the other. II shield, but the quick action required by the hand and arm which did the fighting soon developed that arm. It also developed the nerves and tliG half of the brain that governed the right side of the body. Those who shielded their left side-litus protect ing the heart-were the ones who usu ally came out victorious. Down through the ages this selection con tinued, the right hand gradually be coming more proficient." "Ma, what .is meant by the Progres sive party?" "The Progressive party, my dear? Why, that's where all the partner...

Victoria Street. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 2 May 1914

Victoria Street. The complaint of state of Victoria street, so forcibly put before the Coun cil in a recent letter from Mr. R. Rossborough, has not been lost sight of. It was decided that the Richmond aind Collingwood Surveyors confer and submit a report to the Council, but in consequence of a change in Surveyors 011 Collingwood's side', that report is not yet available; it will probably be submitted at next meeting. The recommendations* arising from the recent visit to Sydney of the Sew age Committee of the Metropolitan Board of Works arc summed up in an interesting report, a copy of which was submitted to the Council on Monday evening last. Each councillor is to be supplied with a copy. Cr. Bell, who is a me.mber of the Board, said he had objected to members of the Sewage' Committee taking upon themselves the liberty of going to Sydney without first consulting the Board. The first intimation lie * got of the visit was through the press. Richmond councillors apparently at tach very...

ONE LIFE FOR MANY. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 2 May 1914

ONE LIFE FOR MANY. .Many heroic deeds have been -done-. by British sailors, but no act was truly more heroic than the voluntary martyrdom suffered by James Marr, a sailor on bodrd a vessel named The Rip, on July 15, 1873. "Biefly stated, the facts are as fol low:-The Rip was caught in a squall, and was quickly in difficulties. James Iviarr was astride the gaff at the mo ment when a great wave caught the vessel, sweeping everything off the deck, and carrying away the main mast. After this there was only one chance for those on board, and that, was, of course, to cut everything clear. But James Marr was clinging to the broken spar, and his mates saw thai if they cut the tangle away poor Marr must go with it. They hesitated. But not so James Marr. Seeing that the sacrifice of one might save many, he gave- the signal himself, shouting, "Chop away, mates!" and "Good-bye, lads!" thus making for himself a name as a real hero. __ ;

SOMETHING ABOUT BACTERIA. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 2 May 1914

SOMETHING ABOUT BACTERIA. We hoar so much nowadays about the activity, beneficent or otherwise, of bacteria, that a little information about them and their habits will in terest many of our readers. Bacteria are unicellular organisms, the most lowly-organised members of the vegetable kingdom. The word unicellular may be more fully explain ed. Everything living, animal or vege table, is made up of cells or the pro ducts of cells-just as a brick wall is made up of individual bricks. As the brick is the structural unit of the wall, so is the cell the physiological unit of the living structure. The difference between the cells of highly-organised animals and those of unicellular crea tures is that, in the former case dif ferent groups of cells take on special functions, one group digestion, an other sensation, etc., while obviously the single cell, of which the unicellu lar creature is composed, has itself tc carry out all the functions necessary to its existence. Bacteria, then, con si...

WHY TEETH DECAY. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 2 May 1914

WHY TEETH DECAY. The question to what extent tne alka line earth salts in drinking water affect the decay (caries) of teeth has of late beon studied in several quartets. Statistics iiave been, collected by Rese in several localities in Bavaria and by Foerberg 'i Sweden. These have revealed the inte resting fact that the extent of decaying teeth bears a definite relation ';o the hardness of the water ; in other words, to the quantity of calcium and magnesium "alts in the earth through which the water passes.- The harder the water the better the teeth ; the smaller the quantity of these salts the greater the decay of the To be fed Is not simply to have enough to eat, but enough of proper element!. .' . _

That Roused Him. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 2 May 1914

That Roused Him. The boy's eyes were,closed, and all attempts to rouse liim were ineffec tual. The physician had watched by the bedside for half-an-hour without success, and finally announced that the only hope of saving his life was to rouse him from his stupor. - "Cannot some of you induce him to make some exertion?" he asked. "We can do nothing unless we can make him do something for himseir." Then the boy's mother went to the bedside and pleaded with him to rouse himself for her sake, but there was not even a motion of the muscles of the face to show that he heard. She told him how much she would do for him, and what nice times they would Iiave when he got well, but he did not stir. The father spoke of buying him a pony and a little shot-gun, but he did not seem to understand. Even the mention of a circus and a. pantomime passed unheeded, and he gave up in despair. Then the sick boy's little brother crept to the bedside, and said softly: "Eddie, the people who lived in that big ...

Charity Entertainment on Sunday THE COUNCIL SAYS "NO!" [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 2 May 1914

Charity Entertainment on Sunday THE COUNCIL SAYS " NO!" An application was received by the Richmond Council on Monday even ing from a committee representative Richmond tramway employees for permission to hold a Sunday night picture entertainment at the Rich mond Theatre in aid of the families of the victims in the recent St. Kilda boating fatality. Cr. Bell moved that the request be complied with. Seconded by Cr. O'Connell, who said that the by-law in Richmond against Sunday entertainments might well be waived in cases of charity, as had been done at the time of the Mount Lyell disaster.   Cr. Kemp said he must raise his voice in protest against any infringe ment of the by-law prohibiting Sun day entertainments. There were many other means of raising the necessary funds, and if they granted this request it would be only the thin end of the wedge to the opening of picture shows on the Sabbath. This case, although a deserving one, was not analagous to that of the Mount Ly...
