Maybe! [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 23 May 1914
Maybe! Not very long ago Mr. Rockefeller was talking to a group oC New York business men, all of them million aires, but none of them American born. "After all," Mr. Rockefeller remark ed. "when one comes to look at it, you fellows are only intruders. None of you were born here. You're emi grants, and you're apt to forget what you owe us natives for letting you in."

"There is nothing more uncertain than a horserace," exclaimed the man with a tendency to talk loud. And the melancholy friend remark ed— "You never worked in a meteorologi cal office, did you?"

John Obeyed. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 23 May 1914
John Obeyed. Just prior to the balloon ascent, which formed one of the chief events at a big gala and flower show, a deter mined little woman elbowed her way through the crowd towards the car, and began to make a scene.

The Economist. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 23 May 1914
The Economist. Some people seem to think that, to get rich, one must economise like Blanco. Blanco's faithful old (log had turned sickly and savage, and so Blauco said to his wife, on arriving home from business on Saturday evening: "I'll shoot Towser to-morrow morn ing 'before church." Blanco paused, then added, stern ly: ' So remember, please, that he won't need any breakfast."

GREATER THAN GOLD By L. T. MEADE, Author o£ "The Soul of Margaret Rand," etc. Fublished by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London & Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER VIII. Sheila Danvers possessed those at tributes which are the common and much-valued prerogatives of certain mixed races. On her mother's side she was Irish to her finger-tips; she ; had all the impetuosity, the fire, the j enthusiasm, the imagination of those fascinating people. Mrs. Danvers had i been a Carey l'rom Donegal, and her descent was long and pure. On the 1 other side, Sheila's father was a stur- ! dy Yorkshireman, firm of figure, up- • right in his bearing, and with a splen- ■ did sense of conscientiousness. j But Sheila inherited something far j more valuable than money. She had derived from her mother pride.,jxfi4vu:e ; and distinction of carriage. Her eyes—those truly Irish eyes—were ' put in, as the saying is, "with dirty lingers," the skin around them being : a shade darker than the...

"Well," said Mr. Cliatterley, with distinct and deliberate emphasis, "simply because they make a deity of a woman who has sense enough to give lier chin a rest!"

THE OLFACTORY NERVE OF INSECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 23 May 1914
THE OLFACTORY NERVE OF INSECTS. A great number of facts of the life o.' insects Clin hardly be explained ex cepting by admitting a particularly powerful olfactory sense in these ani mals. The examples are numerous; if in an ant-hill, an ant of the same species as those that inhabit it, but belonging to another swarm, tries to penetrate, it will immediately bo ex pelled. Sometimes the hypothesis lias been supposed of a sort of lan guage allowing each individual to make itself known, but deafness is general in the class of insects, and ants in particular are absolutely deaf. He then there only remains the odor special to each swarm which appears 1.0 constitute a mode of identification. In the same way, when the corpse of a small mammiferous animal is be coming decomposed in a field, a legion of sylphs and necrophors, strangers to the immediate neighborhood, com ing sometimes from a distance of several kilometres, arrive to lay their epgs there, guided, it would seem, merely by their s...

A BOTANICAL CURIOSITY. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 23 May 1914
A BOTANICAL CURIOSITY. It is tiuio we sliouliL learn more I about that wonderful invention of I Dame Nature ltnown as the Venus i fly-trap, which, in the United States, finds its home mainly in the swamps | near Wilmington, North Carolina. A I specimen transplanted into moss ami I rich earth will thrive in the house if I kept very moist, and it makes the best kind of fly-trap, for it is always on duty and looks after itself. As the older traps lose their vitality fresh shoots appear and new traps are de veloped. The Venus fly-trap is regarded as cne of the greatest wonders of the plant world, for it seems to exercise a discrimination of taste that is more than iiuman. It is provided with three delicate hair-triggers, and it exudes a sort of honey-dew that attracts the flies. Woe to the fly, however, that touches one of tlio triggers, for, quick as a flash, the two heavy leaves of the trap close upon the victim and crush it, much the same as an ordinary steel trap acts. There is no e...
