I should advise every young gill to get up and look at her face in the glass after reading an exciting novel. She will look older than she really is, In a tram or railway journey one can notice the different expressions of a man reading a nowspaper, and a woman-or a man, for that matter, -reading a novel, The newspaper reader's face is quite normal; but the expression on the novel-reader's face Is quite different. Of course people will read novels, but I strongly advise them not to read them for hours at a stretch, Pick up a novel and ...

A TERRIFIC SLIDE. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 4 March 1914

A TERRIFIC SLIDE, Indila offers many curious things Il the way of customs, and the strangest of them all is the aerial slide, which is performedl annually at Kulu, in tile Himalayas. At two points overhang ing a precipitous gorge, several hun dred foot in width and a hundred feet In dlepth, a rope is made fast. The total length of the rope between the two points Is whoen drawn taut, twenty-flvo hundred foot, and the end attached to the cliff is several hundred feet higher than that fastened on the opposite sidoe. It is down this incline that the performer has his path, Be. fore a start is made, the wholeo length of the rope is wet to prevent the sad. die, In which the performer rides, from catching fire from the friction, To his legs are fastened bags of sand which enable him to maintain an up right position during his lightning do. scent, and they increase the minomon t.un, The terrific velocity of the do. scent for the first few hundred yards is shown by the stream of smoke that t...

Gussie's Explanation. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 4 March 1914

Gussle's Explanation. Augustus is an onthusiastic crickeotor, and had taken Angellna to the first match she had over soon, She was one of the "Why-does-the. man.throw.tllho-ball-atthllo.mnuwithth9. bat?" order of damsels, and askoed pretty well every quostlon which would occur to a weak.ninded Martian who had suddenly dropped on to a crickeot field. One of the batsmaen began to pat the somewhat lumpy wicket with his bat, Angy saw hini doing it, and, of course, she asked why lie did it. Pa. tient man as Augustus is, she had by this time fairly worn him out, "Well, you see, dear," lie replied, in desperatilon, "the pitch is full of worms, aud they keep poking up their heads to watch the game. Of course, that ]uts the batsmnan off his stroke, and, indeed, It isn't fair, considering they haven't paid their admisslon money, antd so as noon as ono pokes up his head the batsman promptly pokes himn down algaln." And then the innocnt darling pro. ceeodol to ask something else. Toummy (watchi...
