The Referendum. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 22 April 1911

The Referendum. We are no v int thc last week of the campaign, and before our next issue appeals the vote will have been taken and another stage in the politi- cal history of Australia reached. The issues which are invoked are so tremendous for good or ill, that it behoves all to pause and consider both sides of the question, in all their many aspects before finally deciding their verdict and recording their vote. In such a matter the -people cannot afford to act hastily. Most especially do we urge our leaders tu put aside all farly lee ing and decide on thjs matter honestly and free from the trammels of party i olicy. One aspect we wish to put most clearly before our readers, that of National Sentiment. When the constitution was framed, it was de- cided that the Federal Parliament should have certain powers and the State Parliament certain other pow- ers. It was thought at the time, that by this divisio i tile Federation could do certai , wj'k effectively, and that other malters we...

A BROKEN FRIENDSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 22 April 1911

A BROKEN FRIENDSHIP. . As now I gaze upon thy poor re- mains ; Alt that is left thv friendship to re- call. When oft thy soothing" comfort cased my pains, And cheered when gloomy fears 'round me did fall. Well do I recollect when first wc met; And unto me thy virtues were made known. The price I paid for thee I'd ne'er re- gret; For loss of thoo, nought oise can e'er atone. And yet, at first, though thou didst please the eye, Thy lack, of taste I oftimcs would deplore ; But when the glowing blush did beau tify, 'Twas then I learnt to love thee more and more. What cruel hand did thrust thee from thy place? What enemies to break thee did conspiro? Though anger nt thy loss doth cloud iny face Meerschaum nro frargilo ; now I'll get rt "briar." -A. E. Chftut.

DACHSHUND. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 22 April 1911

DACHSHUND. Whon tho funny man wanta to make a picture of a, funny dog, bo draws a Dachshund. Ho is tho clown among dogs, inalionably as- ' sociated in thc public mind with Gorman jokos and sausage. At a matter of fact, a Dachshund is a ' sciontifically-brod doformity, and his peculiar shape to duo to certain points of oxcellonco based on tho usos to which he is put in hunting. j Almost every brood of dogs was originally brod from tho common 1 dog progonitor for somo scientific puriioso. The lithe greyhound is a running machino; tho shaggy St. Bernard can fight tho Alpine bliz- zards ; even tho bulldog theoretically can hold fast to a hull's neck because of his massive projecting jaws, and still bo able to broatho bocauso of his receding noso. Many peuplo regard a Dachshund as belonging to tho hound family, and as such expect him to compete with tho beagles and other hounds in following scent.

Poetry of the Week. BE BRAVE. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 22 April 1911

Poetry of the Week. \ ' ' -» BE BRAVE. The touch of a hand, the glance of an eye. Or a word exchanged with a passer- by. A glimpse of a face in a crowded street, And afterwards life is incomplete. A picture painted with honest zeal, And we lose the old foi lin- new ideal, A chance remark, or a SOUK'S refrain, And life is never thc same again. A friendly smile and love's embracing spark Leaps into flames and illumes thc dark. A whispered "Be brave 1" to our fel- lowmen. And they pick up thc thread of hope again; Thus never an act or word or thought But that may be willi impotence fraught, For small things build up eternity And blazon the ways fur destiny.

Random Readings. CANNIBAL MARKETING. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 22 April 1911

j Random Readings. CANNIBAL MARKETING. Probably thc most Inhuman (cnn ; nibal) practice of all is to be met j with among thc tribes who dcliber ¡ ately hawk the victim piecemeal ' whilst still alive. Incredible as it ' may appear, thc statement remains justified by abundant proof, as well I as from personal observation, that ! captives were led from place to j place in order that individuals might ; have the opportunity of indicating ! by external maries on tk body the portion they desired to acquire. Thc I distinguishing marks were generally made by means of coloured clay or 1 strips of grass tied in a peculiar I fashion. . . . There is a prevalent 1 belief among many of the riverside ! tribes of the Upper Congo that the ' flavour of human flesh is improved by submerging the prospective vic- tim up to the nock in water for two or three days previous to sacrifice.

STORIES OE BRIGHTON ENGINES. Mr. W. J. Gordon, in "Our Homo Railways" tolls nome interest- ing stories about somo of the old engines of the London, Brighton, and South Coast Railway. Ono ongine, on Juno Gili, 1851, was run- ning down tho inclino between Pal- mer and Lewes when it ran off tho lino at tho Newmarket Arch, and, dragging two carriages with it, foll into tho bridle-road bolow, killing threo of tho passongers and tho fire- man on tho spot.

A DICTIONARY IN THE MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 22 April 1911

A DICTIONARY IN THE MAK- ING. Sir Jumes Murray, the editor of thf Oxford Dictionary, has given an audience some idea of the magni- tude of thc work entailed in editing a dictionary. He stated that he had to write to the Director of Kew Gardens about an exotic plant, to a Roman Catholic boat-builder re- garding a key, to a sporting news- paper, to someone about n bloater, and to many other people on a hundred and une subjects. In fact, he aptly remarked, a lexico- grapher who desired to be accurate had to be a universal inquirer. In 1S77 he bad an oller from an English and American firm of pub- lishers to edit an Kngfish diction- ary, and forthwith there began to pour in upon him different materi- als from all quarters. A multitude of accumulated quotations, num- bering millions, and weighing tons, was sent to him. He was confron- ted with the problem where bc was to place these tons of matter. Eventually be bad an iron room erected in his garden. In it were pigeon-holes, each of whi...

A POISON WEAPON. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 22 April 1911

A POISON WEAPON. The curious article which we il- lustrates is one from a collection of instruments of torture ami such like. It is practically a needle gun, its purpose being for the throwing of poisoned needles amongst a crowd of people. The use of this weapon obtained in the Sixteenth Century. Where thc lid at thc top is seen lifted up U the chamber in which the stock ol needles are kept. On the opposite side a needle is seen put through a hole in a strong spring. and held in Its place hy a catch above, which, when pressed by the thumb, ejects the needle with considerable force. T he weapon-is held with tue forefinger through the centre ring, the thumb at the top, the rest of the hand almost concealing the re- mainder of the weapon. The spring is adjustable by a screw at the side. It was mostly used by men on horse, back, or from a point of vantage, and, ns the needles were poisoneo, many persons received painful in- juries wiiuout being able to dis- cover their assailant.
