DUTIFUL. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 30 May 1912

DUTIFUL. "A better hoss you'll not find, zur," declared the old farmer, en- thusiastically. " Obeys every word you zes to 'un, and is worth three times the price I am askin' for 'un. Try'un, zur, try 'un!" The prospective buyer did " try'un" and returned an hour later with a frowning countenance. " Somewhat lavish in your pwaises what? be' quoth as he dismounted.   " Nevah wode a worse horse in all my life!"   " Well, well!" exclaimed the old   farmer, dlsappointedly. " And what is wrong with 'un, zur?"   " Why," retorted the man who did not want the horse, " the bwute oept on stoppin'-stopped everwy twenty yards, an' cocked up its ears." " But that's jest his conscientious- ness, zur," replied the farmer. "Don't you see ? He's so afeared you may say ' Whoa,' and he won't hear you, that he stops to listen."

CURRENT CREDULITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 30 May 1912

CURRENT CREDULITIES It is lucky to dream of pigs. It is unlucky to lose a glove. It is unlucky to travel on Friday. To dream of catching fish is good luck. Heavy eyebrows are a sign of long life. If your eye quivers a stranger is coming. If your nose itches you are going to quarrel. 'The notion that an amulet made of stone or metal carried about the per- son has the power both of repelling and healing diseases still prevails in the minds of many persons. What you dream Monday bofore daylight will come true before Satur- day night. If what you dream is bad, you can keep it from coming true by not telling your dream until after breakfast. It is said that impetuous people have black eyes," "Yes ; and if they don't have them they are apt to get them."--"Now York Mail." Lady . "Yes, I've an umbrella that needs mending; but how am I to know that you will bring it back?" Umbrella Mender : "Have no fear, mum.

CYNICISMS. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 30 May 1912

CYNICISMS. More people would succeed it more would try. Woman in her hour of woe can keep a secret-on the go. You can't tell the age of a saw by looking at its teeth. Trust your dog to the end ; a wo- man--till the first opportunity.-Pro- verb. Marriage is often but ennui for two. -Conmmerson. A girl of sweet sixteen never wishes she had been born a man-but wait until she reaches the age of thirty six ! It is rare that, after having given the key of her heart, a woman does not change the lock the day after. Sainte-Beuve.

WEIRRIBEEIPARK ESTATE: EEFORTS AT SETTLEMENT VALUES TOO HIGH. When the Bent Government, in 1906, purchased the Worribee-park estate fronl Mr. G. Chirnsido, there weore the rbieghtost lauguries for ia tsuceassfut scheome of closer settlement. To what extoet those hopes, which weore 'so fond ly chlorislhed by thile initiators of timhe undertaking, have been realised may be drawni from the following facts.. At tho time of the purchaseo Victoria was en tering upon an era of unexampled pros perity. Seasons had boon uniformly good for three or four years, and the colfidence of the farmer in. the agricul tural possibilities of the State,, which lhad been badly shaken by ths disastrous yearsn preceding 1903, had been coin plaetly restored.

ATTRACTIVE WOMANHOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 6 June 1912

ATTRACTIVE WOMANHOOD. No woman need be gNly. If thero is a' soul In her body, it has but to begin betimes to nhow through. From her earliest girlhnod the thoughts she thinks, the fee!lngs to which slhe gives way, the tones she Otters, the wishes she indulges, are sculpturing lines in her face which are capable of making a beauty all her own-lines the writing .of which will remain when bloom fades and nsparile fails. It is In the beginning of uman. hood and in the beginning of old age that a man Is'captivated simptly by a pretty face, and Istn.brceathless bna?io to make her charms his ownu pns?s-. sion. The mature man is far less subject to a mistnakn infatuation. The boy looks for beauty, the glow. Ing cheek, the molting eye, the lovely lip: he cannot endure the notion, the will say, of an unlovely countenance in perpetual ovidence. All mon -who follow their own do. vices'are in danger of mhkting a god of favorable chance. No matter how carefully trained or bow. lntelloctnally gifte...

(ALL' RIGHTS RESERV.ED.) 4 VAN DE VEER, -4----- THE DIAMOND MERCHANT. CHAPTER I. THE PRINCE AND THE SURGEON. The date of our story is in the fourteenth century, in the reign and empire of Charles IV., Emperor of Germany and King of Bohemia. We begin it at the Castle of Zurichbold, the seat of the princes of the House of Altenuburg, as we shall style the family in this romance. The sun had not quite set, and Eustace, Prince of Zurichbold, was pacing to and fro in the great baro nial hall,-a man.of noble presence, scarcely thirty years of age and yet with threads of silver in his raven black hair. A gentleman in black velvet, white haired, grave in feature, step, and speech, enters the hall, and moves towards the prince, who turns to meet him, thinking : "The surgeon at last I Ile comes to speak of my wife. Is she dead 7" These two men, advanclng towards each other, stepped slowly-the sur geon with a gravity that was habit ual; the prince pale, and with great effort to appear calm. " ...

THE PRAISE OF WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 6 June 1912

THE PRAISE OF WOMEN. Francis I. of France once said that a court without women would be like a year without ,spring. and a spring, without roses; and Ialherbo, who was a poet, said that there are only two pretty things in the world, women and roses; and only two dainty morsels, women and melons. Then Chateaubriand said: "Man without woman would be gross, rude and solitary, and would ignore the grace which is the smile of love Weo man hangs around him the flowers of life, like those forest creepers which adorn the trunks of oaks with their perfumed garlands." F. J. Stahl said: "The mind of wo men has every kind of relation to the diamond.

Girls' and women that men cannot tolerate are: Those who deprive a father and mother of comforts in order that they may be stylish and smart beyond their means. Those who gad about with men of   whom they know but little. Those who bedeck themselves with jewellery the first thing in the morn- ing, as such a display suggests bad taste and a vulgar love of show. Those who adopt mannish attitudes and pose as athletic specimens of their Those who boast of their numerous conquests and declare openly that the man does not exist whom they deem good enough to marry. Those who sit and stare a strange man out of countenance, and then com- plain that he returns the rudeness.
