RIFLE SHOOTIXG There is on view in the window of Mr. J. Wishart, jeweller, an artistic gold medal, which was presented by Mr. 11. N. Isinay for competition amongst the Rainbow riflemen. The winner proved to be Mr. E. Mill, who was also successful at the recent Horsham rifle meeting. Now that the shooting season is on, it is to be hoped that supporters of .the club will donate trophies for the various matches, and thus cause enthusiasm amongst marksmen.

TENNIS [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 28 March 1914

TENNIS In a aeries of closely connected games, there were eight matches in all to be "played, Rainbow succeeded in winning the" deciding match and the pennant on Wednesday'last, at Werrap, by a narrow majority of five games. Owing to the absence of individual members from to time the selection committee had great difficulty in obtaining teams of even strength. The Werrap teams also varied from similar causes. There is no doubt that the friendly-rivalry-."existing .between the two clubs, apart from the enjoyable social aspect, has been tho means of improving the tennis of each. Subjoined are the details of the play:— R. Dunn and C. Barnes lost to 0. B. Walter and J. Wearne, 7—9; and beat V. Hsirry and W. Fischer, 9—5; and beat N. McLeod and A. Barnes, 9—8 A. Perking,and A.

THE FIRST PEN. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 28 March 1914

THE FIRST PEN. In any large city, in the same block, possibly in the same building, can 'be found in use to-day the first type of pen and the latest. A fine hairbrush was the first instrument used by man for writing purposes. The Chinese laundryman of to-day marks his tickets and keeps his ac counts with a camel's hair pen dipped in ink. Next door prabaibly is a white merchant who uses the latest make of steel pen. Between .the two, in the long his tory of the pen, came the reed, then the quill. Steel pens are almost in universal use now, and are made 'by the ton and in increasing volume every year. Confucius used a .hair brush for a pen, and his ancestors for thousands of years before his time. The reed came dnto use for writing Jin (the marshy countries of the Orient. It was hollow and, cut in short lengths, with sharpened ends, it was some im provement on the hair pen. The value of the quill was-discov ered at an-early date in the history of civilisation, and its use spread from ...

WIT AND WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 28 March 1914

WIT AND WISDOM. The world seldom watches a man when he is doing good. Too many strings to a bow will never make a marriage tie. A man need not fear competition when he is in love with himself. People with small minds seldom have occasion to change them. A contented mind may 'be a feast, •but feasts are indigestible things. Many a man in the swim finds it difficult to keep his head aibove water. If you want work well done, select a busy man—the other kind has no time. The folly of love is insecurity; peo ple are always either falling in or out of it. Although otherwise stingy, a man may be willing to lend a helping hand to himself. About two-thirds of the average man's laughter is inspired by his own alleged wit. Love makes the world go round— perhaps that is why the young folk are so giddy. The man that a woman says she does not care for is generally the one she cries over. ■ • The telephone girl may truthfully say that she is connected with the best familios. Instinct is now descri...

III. Meanwhile there was Stranraer Harbor at dusk and all its terrors. Hugh told her at sunset just what he meant to do, and she listened without protest. His own motor car would be waiting for them at Stran raer; his own launch would take them ashore. "They know me here," he said, "there will be no trouble. If your old sailorman has not been able to hold his tongue, I do not suppose the cackle of it has travelled so far. We shall go ashore when it is dark and travel all night to Aberfeldy. It will be time enough when we get there for my sister and me to decide what is the best thing to be done." She looked up quickly at the word sister. "Do you think that I shall be able to abide by your decision?" she ask ed him—a vague question whose meaning he understood. "Oh," he said, "Geraldine is one ol the best little women in the world; she doesn't always seem to be, but that's her manner. As I am her principal divinity I shall be very much surprised if she does not share my views. The gre...

II. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 28 March 1914

II. Leila watched the distant land with a woman's eyes which , were full of questioning. The long day on board the Cliris tabel had brought with it a meas ure of reason which would now be sifted with a woman's logic.. She had fled from Newcastle in an hour of mad panic.. Her only desire had been to save the child from the ma chinations of those whom she be lieved to be her enemies. Just as when she staked all upon Desdy's liberty, when she had defied the worst threats of the law and had entered into a conspiracy from which she must emerge a criminal, so in Ireland had she cared nothing for any of the consequences from which might attend an immediate and a successful flight.. Despair had car ried her to the Christabel as to the only haven the night could show her. Here to-day she reckoned with the trouble and asked herself what she had done. Surely now she was an outcast from the world! She had little money, and a montli must pass be fore the trustees would send her the miserable pit...

CHAPTER VI. At Aberfeldy Castle. I. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 28 March 1914

CHAPTER VI. At Aberfeldy Castle. I. They put into Stranraer Harbor a little after dusk that day. Hugh had told her by that time just what he intended to do, and she had heard him without protest. A rough passage with almost a gale from the north east kept them to the saloon and to the ArclMeacou's humors. The child alone revelled in the uncertainties of the day. He had Herr Joseph clown ing directly his clothes were on, and tliat fat worthy was a thinner and a sadder man -when the lights of Ailsa Craig came to their view. George Hedges was ever a social diplomatist, and his knowledge of domestic juri3piudence intruded hap pily upon this curious situation. Of Leila he formed a truly clerical opin ion. There would be two sisters, he said to himself, and one of them was a little wild. It was quite possible that this 'beautiful siren they had trapped at Newcast-le"was in some measure an adventuress and yet to be discovered. He trusted to his own presence and to the majesty of the archid...

II. Not so tlie Arclideacon; lie had <le: cided to remain. Closeted with Hugh in the private caibin he forgot even to smoke, so great was his curiosity. "Do you mean to tell me, my dear fellow, that you propose to take her into Scotland?" he asked. Hugh admitted the infamy. "I am trusting to my judgment," h-> said; "if we did that always, life would .he rather easier. Just consider, George, how much that we do is the result of men's convictions or their prejudices. Sometimes the prejudices are feminine—the argument is the same. I am trusting to an instinct which says that I have met one of the hest of women, and that s' e has need of me. If there were a thousand advocates in this cabin at this mo ment telling me I was deceived, it would make no difference. She will go to Scotland, and I shall ask my sister to take up her case. After that it will be plain sailing." The Archdeacon was not so sure of it. "A very worthy purpose," he said, and. repeated the words as though ...

LEILA AND HER LOVER By MAX PEMBERTON. Published by Arrangement with "Ward, Lock and Co. Ltd., Lond. and Melb. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER Y. The Voyaye. I. The friends heard of the adventure shortly after midnight, aniL discusseJ it in awesome tones above the very cahin -where Leila watched Desdy in his heavy sleep. This was a rare blow to them, for they perceived immediately that it meant the end of their holiday. Far from being misogynists, in spite of the philosopher, they had throughout the whole of the cruise ig nored woman as an issue, and rarely mentioned her name when it was not prominently in the newspapers. They had believed Hugh Donald himself to be a man who would never marry. His •aversion to the sex had become a 5>y-word among them, and yet here was the very truth. "A girl aboard the Christaibel!" But for the liglit in the cabinr which was unoccupied yes terday, they never would have be lieved it. Herr Joseph, the steward, broke the news to them, and his tones we...
