A Complete Story. RACHEL'S JOHN. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 15 April 1911
A Complete Story. RACHEL'S JOHN. (By Lillias Campbell Davidson.) There were just the two of them ; there had never been more than the two since Evie cculd remember. She was a tiny child when her mother, dying, had feebly drawn lier into her sister's arms. "Take care of my baby for me." she had murmured to the little daughter twelve years old, and Rachel had accepted the trust, standing there by her mother's bedside in a mute agony and strug- gle with her grief, that befitted a far older heart. So she had taken care of Evie, and cared for her as if she were her own child. She was only a child herself still, and needing some- body to look after lier young self. People shook their heads when they spoke of her, half with admiration, half with wonder. She was an oin woman while she was in short pet- ticoats, Rachel Stonehouse, and she just spoilt that sister of hers. Per- haps she did. If denying oneself, to have the more to bestow on an- other spoils, then Kachel spoilt Evie. Other peop...
DIAMOND CUTTING. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 15 April 1911
DIAMOND CUTTING. Diamond-cutting was originally a home industry in Amsterdam, , and was conducted in attics, of which there were many in thc old tumble- down houses of the city. Gradually better workshops were seen to be es- sential, and the first diamond polish- ing factory was opened in the early part of last century. Thc first fac- tory to use steam power was erect- ed in London in 1824, and thc first in Amsterdam in 1840. Electricity is now largely used. The largest dia- mond-polishing factory in thc world is that of Messrs. Asscher, of Paris and Amsterdam. Thc total value of diamonds handled in Amsterdam per annum exceeds ^4,250,000, of which the United Slates, the most important buyer, purchases about ¿£2,000,000 polished and ¿£100,000 rough.

The Cheshunt Tragedy. Attempted Murder and Suicide. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 15 April 1911
The Cheshunt Tragedy. Attempted Murder and Suicide. ; - &nbsp; I -o Quite a wave of excitement passed over Deloraine when it became known that what was generally thought to be an attempted murder and suicide had occurred on the Cheshunt Closer -Settlement last Saturday. It appears that on that &nbsp; date a young man named C. Smith was at tea at Mr. Homan's residence. There was a girl named Bridget Gleeson staying at the house, and after tea Smith went into the room where the girl was ironing and shot her. He then quietly walked out into the yard and shot himself. Death was instantaneous. Dr. Cole and Trooper McCarthy were soon on the scene, and it was evident the girl's condition was serious. The shots had mostly taken effect in the left shoulder and neck. The child was subsequently removed to the Launceston Hospital. The Coroner Mr C J L Smith, held an enquiry on Monday after- &nbsp; noon at Cheshunt into the circum- stances attending the death of Chas Smit...

Much and nothing Much. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 22 April 1911
Much and nothing Much. I If any of your readers have been wondering what -'Ben Bolt" has been doing lately. Mr Editor you eau tell them he has been doing much and nothing much (a lot of nothing much) instead of writing j about it for a spell. They tell me Mr Editor, that King O'Ma'ley Wouldn't hold forth last Monday nit: ht because our local labour party I didn't hire a hall for him, hut wanted him to air his eloquence from Fitz's ! balcony. When you come to think of it, it docs seem a bit cheeky to expect a real live King to speak off a balcony. Really, loyal folk like our Labor leaders ought lo know better Some of these fellows that came up at Easter got pretty fully loaded There is a rather funny yarn about a couple, but I won't commit my- self to it being ti ue. Thare was a big light on a pole, and one chap say's:-I shay. Bill, whash that'' "Oh 1 don't, know Jack, its the sun" "No Bill, ¡sh sher moon" "No! I tell yer its sher shun'1 "I shay ish er moon."
