PUBLICATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 20 June 1914
PUBLICATIONS. Compulsory Training for. Girls. Should Australian girls be brought under some system of compulsory train ing to fit them to share in the.defence of the country in time of war ? This is the query raised by the editor of 'Every lady's Jouirnal' for June, and answered by a number of leading citizens. The views of these notable people make very interesting and-- instructive reading. Summed up, the general opinion seems to be that, while it is altogether inadvisable to give girls any form of Military Training, it would be a fine thing-for the girls of Australia if a coiurse ..of Domestic Science were made compulsory.: We read:" Lady Creswell, wife of kear-Admiral Sir William Cres wvell1: 1as big sympathy; with all progres sive movements. As a mother of six children her knowledge of the training of tfe? jo6ing is iot to be classified within the realms of theory. 'Despite the de mands of a strenuous social life, .ILady Creswell has-. found time to personally supervise the. tr...
Sunday's Wreck. AGAIN THE CORSAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 20 June 1914
Sunday's Wreck. AGAIN THE CORSAIR. Queenscliff was rudely awakened in the early hours of Sunday last by the ringing of the -wreck bells, and it was found that a whaling steamer Campbell, had found her way on to the death-trap, the Cor sair reef. Five of the crew had worked their'way ashore in a much -damaged boat, using a cap and sitting on it. to prevent her from filling. The other of the crew had drifted to sea, but were merci fully rescued by the pilot steamer Alvina. The lifeboat was got away as speedily as could be and rendered every assistance possible. Mayor Dewar and Capt. Patterson came to the assistance of the crew, by making them as comfortable as they. could by attending to their require merits and change of clothing, for most 'of them were wet through. Capt Olsen and his crew were subsequently -received by the Norwegian Consul and taken to the Sailors' Home. It seems that grave complaint was made by the captain that the bombardier on duty, having en quired as to their m...

COMPULSORY TRAINING. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 20 June 1914
COMPUISORY TRAINING. To the Editor. Sir,--Finding I am unable to obtain justice, I write earnestly appealing to your readers to use their influence to pro tect Australian lads in various States from unjust treatment from the Defence Department. My own son at this moment lies in a solitary confinement cell in the Queenscliff fortress for no other misdemeanour than loyalty to his parents' views of Christian teaching, and thus our cherished right of parental con trol has been forced from us. Our Tom, a lad of 15, was sent to Queenscliff on Wednesday last week for 21 days efor refusing to train under the Defence Act. My wife and I are memin bers of the Society of Friends, and hold strong convictions against military matters, a principle held vital for cen turies in the religious views of Quakers and others, and however your readers may differ from me on this point, I am quite sure that as men and women they will agree that this is not the treatment for a boy of 15, even if he committed ...
DOCTOR AND PATIENT. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 20 June 1914
DOCTOR AND PATIENT. * The late Dr. Cruveilhier, of Paris, was a nian of unbounded liberality. One day he heard that a poor young woman, whose husband was a. clerk in the War Office, had been taken ser iously ill. He went to see her, at tended her for a month, and finally brought her round. At the end of this period he per ceived that the husband wished to ask. him for his account, and for time to pay it in. He did not like to hurt the young man's feelings, and, noticing an Algerian carpet in the room, worth about fifteen france, he exclaimed: !'What .a lovely piece of carpet you have got there i" "Ah.! .doctor," said the husband,: '"It you think., you w?ould like tbo have it----" "I should indeed, very much like to have it. Look here, we will make a bargain. You owe me two hundred francs for. my visits. Your carpet is worth three hundred. Here are a hundred francs, and I'll take it with me." And he left, .glad to have done the poor people a kindness without wounding their pride. On ...

A PUGILISTIC CABBY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 20 June 1914
A PUGUISTIC CABBY. Mr. Grant Allen used to tell of an amusing experience with a London cab-driver. After leaving his publisher's, he hired a cab :to drive to: a---brother novelist. Oa. arriving at his destination he tendered the cabby four shillings, which was a little over the proper fare. The driver, however, .was not satisied, and wanted six shillings. Grant Al len refused to pay more, whereupon the driver offered to fight him for it. Allen, who knew as musch about the art of self-defence as the man in the moon, was rather taken back at the man's request; however, he agreed, saying, "The very thing, my friend will hold the money and act as refe ree, so come along." Cabby got down and followed him into the gar den. Allen then placed the six shil-j lings into his friend's hand, took off his coat, rolled up his shirt-sleeves all with an air of cheerful alacrity, and bade the man come on. His anxiety was intense, but it relaxed as he watched the cabman's face, showing doubt, surprise...

Rheumatism. BENDIGO LADY'S RECOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 20 June 1914
Rheumatism. BENDIGO LADY'S RECOVERY. "Nine years ago I was a great suf ferer from Rheumatism, being laid up for three weeks," writes Mrs. Eliza I* r-: o .. Frm wo,. beth Bray, of Carolin st., Quarry Hill, Ben digo, Vic. After try ing several rem edies with little or no im--. provement. I. decided to try Dr. Morse's In diani Rootr, Pills. At that period, I.- was bad indeed, having to hobble about ?itli the assistance of a walking stick, when able to leave my bed.- The effect of Dr. Morse's tndian Root Pills was marvellous, and my recovery was rapid. I only used half a bottle ofPills and became myself once more-restored to perfect health. I am a woman of usually vigorous health and am a great believer in your remedy. My husband also has faith in them for relief of Backache and Kidney Trouble." Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills proved effective because they drove the Uric Acid out of the system, purified the blood, and aided in the digestion and assimilation of food. Dr. Morse's In dian Ro...
THE FARM AND DAIRY. WHEY OR SKIM MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 20 June 1914
THE FARM AND DAIRY. - +-------- WHEY OR SKIM MILK. The relative value of whey and skim milk for the purpose of rearing calves or making pork is an ever green topic for dispute in dairying circles. Generally , the varying deci sions are arbitrary, and the result of casual experience, and therefore a test made at the Ontario Experimen tal Station is Very interesting. Five groups of pigs were taken for the purpose of demonstration. To group 1 was fed about 21lb. of skim milk to every pound of barley and frozen wheat, to which pollard was added. That was called meal, and every group got the same meal. Group 2 was fed an equal quantity in pounds of butter milk and meal. Group 3 was fed common cheese fac tory whey in place of skim milk, and the. same ration of meal. Group 4 was fed whey that had been run through the separator to take out the butter-fat (three-tenths of 1 per cent per 100tb), and meal as the rest, Group 5 was fed the same quanfity of meal and water for their drink. The ski...

CHAPTER XXVI. :. _ SHATTERED HOPES. A silence fell on the two, and thus :thiey stood for a brief space in the Smoonlit, scented garden, their eyes downcast, their ears deaf to the mur mur of the sea and the echoes of dis tant revelry. Speech would not come to Dick. He was thinking of the poor girl's words, aud to himself he ad mitted that they were partly true. He had been carried away by en thusiasm and hope, but now he was face to face with sound reasoning. There might be no secret exit - no steam-launch. And even if he found them, and within five weeks, a thou sand things might happen to prevent escape from the island. " Mary, I will be frank with you," he said. "You are right it is more than doubtful if I can discover this hidden passage out of the lagoon. But I can still bid you hope. If ...

SOLD ONCE MORE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 27 June 1914
BOLD ONCE MOR " They met in a beautiful room in a large hotel. One of them was pale -as a ghost, the other blushed red as ae cherry. Presently they. came together, and although many pairs. of eyes were watching them, they kissed. They seemed perfectly happy, but only for a few short seconds. A big man swaggered towards them. His face wore a determined frown. Raising the- stick ohe carried he struck one sharp blow. Oh, the pale one was sent spinning away. There was no crying ; no gi-ef at the parting. Nobody fainted. Nothing happened. .You see billiard balls are used to that kind o( thing.
Foul Breath [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 27 June 1914
Foul B-reath . The -old saying that "distance lends enchantment" was.. . never more aptly to the point tIian-t?·aei applied to those people whose breath is laden with evil-smelling: and offensive odours. lany persons appear most attractive at a dis4 lance, but produce a -feeling of pity and disgust n hen close to, because of the condition of thrir breath. For instance it makes little difference how beautiful a woman may be, or how charming her manner, if her breath is foul; her charm . is gone, and she is at a disadvantage whenever she comes in contact with other people. Foul breath in wo man arouses in man a feeling. of re pugnance and a desire to get out of the company of such a woman as quickly as possible, and even women will avoid her. It is, therefore, im portant for every woman who val ues her personal attractions to take such care of herself that this un pleasant and unnecessary complaint is avoided or corrected. Men, wom en, and children who are troubled with this complaint...

PUBLICATIONS. HOW TO RECITE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 27 June 1914
PUBLICATIONS. HOW TO RECITh. 'Australia and New Zealand are full of aspiring reciters and public speakers,' says W. A. Somerset in the July issue of 'Life,' just to hand, and in order to sat isfy some at least of the aspiration of these would-be orators, Mr Alexander Watson, the famous English.elocutionist, explains in an interview his methods of vocal training and elocution. It is really valuable exposition on the art of reciting and speaking in public, and should prove valuable not merely to those competitions that are held throughout Australasia, but to all whose duties call upon them for public speaking In the same issue of 'Life' an Austral ian traveller continues his articles on hunting and trading in South Africa. Dr Filchett's review of the topics of the mouth at home and abroad and the arrangenent of a dozen or more articles on both sides of.the Home Rule question, make this July 'Life' one of the very best issues of this invaluable, sixpenny magazine.
