It was directly ahead, but oven as,he looked it disappeared will o' the wisp fashion. Yet it attracted him, and he began to move cautious ly towards the place where it had shone. Brushing his way through the scrub, he traversed about a hundred yards, and suddenly found himself on the edge of a small clearing, and dim ly outlined in it wans a but. For nearly an boar Gorman remain ed watching the hut, in the hope that he would see someone about, and make sure he was not running into a trap. At length, impelled by hunger, he ventured across the open space and kn?eeed at the slab door. No re monse came, and he rapped heavily. but sdetce followed. The fugitive tried the door anad attempted to push it.. open, but as he strained against it a voice inside sounded, asking who and what the visitor was. "A ...

NOTES BY THE WAYSIDE. "What chances I see when I havn't got a gun." [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 27 April 1917

NOTES BY THE WAYSIDE. BY "UNOHOO")   "What chances I see when I havn't got a   gun." I once read a story in Punch. The author was supposed to be a new chum. He was sight-seeing, but wherever he travelled he saw everywhere the word "Ham," which became repulsive to him. "Dear me,"   remarked the visitor, "this is getting   monotonous," and he resolved to view the scenery at the Dandenong Ranges and thus get away from the name Ham that was grating on his nerves. On a winding road he saw away up the range a board. "Oh," said he, "that is a direction where to go   for beauty spots," but after climbing eagerly and out of breath, he read with perpling thought, "For Sale. Apply to Ham." Then he sought the 90 Mile Beach in Gippsland, and stroling on the sands, invigorated by the pure azone lihe saw through his field-glass a mile away a notice board. "Ah," remarked the stranger, "That must be a welcome intimation that good bathi...

WEDDING BELLS. LYNCH-DENNISON. In the old bluestone Presbyterian Church at Janefield, and one of the earliest landmarks of the district, a very pretty and popular wedding took place on Wednesday, the 11th inst., when Mr. Edwin Lynch, youngest son of Mr. P. Lynch, one of the oldest residents in Morang, and Miss Jennie Dennison, late school teacher at Greensborough, eldest daughter of Mr. W. Dennison, of Bundoora, were united in matrimony. The Rev. J. H. Hewitt, M.A., assisted by the Rev. A. S. Harris, minister of the church, performed the ceremony. Assisted by a number of friends of the bride, Miss Butcher, of Morang, superin- tended the floral arrangements. The church was beautifully decorated, the prevailing tone being autumnal tints and white. The bride's and brides- maids' bouquets were lovely blooms of white and yellow cactus dahlias tipped with brown, with cream and gold ribbons. The "Wedding March," etc., was played on the church organ by Miss Wheeler, L.L.C.M., Professor of M...

"ON THE ROAD" TO DOREEN. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 27 April 1917

"ON THE ROAD" TO DOREEN. ———:o:——— I have written this screed for the Council to read, And the cause that I plead is—good roads for bad. I lack the power to tell of the beauties that dwell On hill or in dell, or I'd do it " by Gad." More prosaic by far, mere rhetoric I bar, And I've no wish to mar this page with my odes ; But I seek, so to say, in a poetical way, My deep rage to display at the state of the roads, From the "Town Hall," Doreen (on the road oft you're seen, So you know where I mean), the way is all holes ; When we drive to the station, words ending with—"nation,"   Or its wicked relation, are wrung from our souls. What if this is shocking ? 'Tis caused by the rocking, The jolting and knocking that breaks up our carts; And that stirs up our blood as we bump thro' the mud, To come down with a thud on our nether- most parts. Certain traps, rubber tired, we have seen and admired, They were doubtless acquired to save humps on the road— But our carts, you'll rem...

THAT HORSE.—MAN'S BESTFRIEND, [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 27 April 1917

THAT HORSE.—MAN'S BEST FRIEND, Perhaps you've heard of this quadruped, The subject of my song, Sometimes in Bible Street its fed. To who does this beast belong ? It comes from the famous stringybark breed, As hard as nails of steel, And its always happy when having a feed Of sombody's chaff for a meal. It opens the neighbour's gates they say Just like a human would, And then proceeds to devour the hay— That is if the quality's good. It examines the gardens now and again, Which makes the owners smile; For it eats and tramples on all it can In a horse's well known style. When it hears the lilt of a Temperance song, And the stockwhip cracks like a big bung bung, It says to itself, "Now we shant be long," So its always home when the morn is young. Now what's to be done with a brute like this, When everything's going to smash ! Why I have a collection some Saturday night And buy the cripple for cash. Then take it down to a shady glen And see that its death is sudden. Things will be right...

BLUNDERING REPORTERS. WHO SURPRISED THE ORATORS. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 4 May 1917

BLUNDERING REPORTERS. ---ter-- WHO SURPRISED THE ORATORS. "Drunkenness ic folly I" earnestly rclaimcd Bishop Magee in the House of Lords on a celebrated occasion. How horrified was the prelate to read in the plapers next morning that be had given utterance to the very bac chaneitian contimncnt, "Drunkenness is jolly I" Lord Salisbury was a master,phrase maker, but one of his best points was o~.iled when a careless reported turn ed his reference to "manacles and Manitoba" into the meaningles. "manacles and men at the bar." Sir William Harcourt was badly misquoted once. "Great is Diana of the Ephesians I" he exclaimed upon the platform, but one paper had it : "Great Dinah I What a farce is this !" Lack of knowledge of familsar quo tations is a prolifie source of misce porting. For instance, a spcaker once made use of the well-known lines fro,4 Milton's "L'Allegro" : Dut come, thou goddess, fair and free, In heaven yclept Euphrosyne. The brilliant reporte_ deputed to "take him down" wa...

GARDEN OF SERPENTS. - There 0s a garden in Brazil whide is very repulsive to the lay visitor. isilntaiued purely for scientific pur poses, it is located at Batanta,, and occupIes about seven hundred scres. There are Inboratories which produce scrums for the cure and prevention of the edects of sarkc-bites. ' The akes tsed in preparing the serums are kept in a small park, contaniing numerous dome-shaped shelters, which is sur rounded by a wall and a ditch filled with water. Other speci? ens are kept in a similar park near the mraI building, in order that their habits, favourite food, the divers venemnous properties of various species, and the best methods of escaping their at tacks may be studied. The hot and moist forests of Bra zil contain many venomous serpents. but the slightest noise alarms the peaceful and timid reptiles, which at tack only those persons and animals that tread on them or destroy their lairs. Tubes of serum, with hypo dermic syringes, are sent gratuitously from ...
