KINGS WHO LIVE ON PENSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 11 June 1914

KINGS WHO LIVE ON PENSIONS In subjugating the savage vribes in thvir African and Asiatic possessions, a task which-has kept the French peopJj busy for many years, they, have been not a little embarrassed at times by finding themselves burdened with a few deposed monarchs whom it was found necessary to pension off in order to keep them out of further mischief. On3 of the first of these deposed kings was Behai-zin, King of Dahomey, who wa. deprived of his throne some twenty years ago, and whose son is now living in Paris on a small pension. Mention might also be made of th > nephew and succcssor of Benlianzir., Prince King of Dahomey, who was dis possessed in 1900. What caused th.i most chagrin to this black king was not so much the loss of his realm, but tlia of a large diamond ring, the gift o; the Government which confiscated it. Eighty thousand francs is the pen sion which is paid to the former Kin ; of Annam, the Prince Ham Nghi, mon arch of the territory along the eas ooasb o...

MORI'] I'N-DIGESTIO^.. TC0JTDER3 ACHIEVED' BY SEW; PKODUCT.. It seems reasonable to suppose that ih a' short time t-liero will be- no' more indiges tion or dyspepsia.- The old style "diges tives," such as bismuth, pepsine, charcoal, soda, etc, which after all are only tempor ary in their effects, are rapidly becoming discarded in favor of a simple antacid, known to chemists as bisurated- magnesia, with the result that chemists are being called upon-to treat fever cases of stomach trouble than ever- before.. This is not 60 .very surprising when it is remembered thai, ' according tfc available statistics, over ninety per eonfc of all stomach trou blss are due to acidity. Bisurated magne sia may readily be obtained- from, any chemist at a smai{ cost, and half-a-tea spoonful taken in a little water after meals will immediately neutralise all harm ill aci's in the stomach, prevent fer ment t-ion, aud thus render the food easy of digestion.. jlEor; Bronoh'ial Coughs, Woods' fflreat Peppei...

WOMEN'S INTERESTS [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 11 June 1914

WOMEN'S INTEREST! (By "Ambrosine.") There is a perfect craze for tulle. Hats are made of it, or trimmed with it, and it makes the necessary vest to the simple little bodices which we are wearing. The tendency nowadays is all for transparency as regards the ad juncts ol: our dress. Everything is ephemeral, and how light, how fly away, how transparent, is the general scheme! A frame of the softest shad ov.y tulle, chiffon, gauze, or lace sur rounds the face. It might be all blown away if it were not for a redeeming, utterly incongruous smart • velvet crown—and we call it a hat. I saw an instancing model the other day, all clouds of siiot giey and violet tulle, crystallising into something which was hail' trimming, half crown; all ono blur on n^ror velvet, mauve and grey Almost every frock with pretensions to novelty is draped. The slieatliliSre underskirt, over which the tunic dis posed itself more or less gracefully is no longer allowed, and the underskirt now receives as much attent...

A THRILLING MEETING. The Russian was brief and to the ■ point, explaining what he had to say very clearly. Dick was to swim out to the Malta, and through Grenville ^obtain an interview with the com manders of the two cruisers. This conference, it was hoped, would re sult in a speedy, settlement as pro posed in behalf of the conspirators ; which, in substance, was as follows : At 12 o'clock on the nest night, by means of a previously-laid torpedo, the thin shell of rock on the seaward side of the cliff was to be blown up. Through the passage which was cer < tain to be opened a hundred marines in boats were to advance at once and make a landing straight across the lagoon. Here they would be join ed by a few of Volborth's men, and led without delay to the forcing of ; the North Ga...

ESPECIALLY FOR SOME HUSBANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 11 June 1914

ESPECIALLY FOR SOME HUSBANDS. Mr. II. L. Rann writes in '' Kim ball's Dairy Farmer" :—We never could understand why some men will rig up the cow barn with every new-fangled device on the market, from an auto matic litter carrier to form-fitting stanchions, and still allow their wive:; to get along with a decrepio, broken - backed rheumatic cook stove that firsi saw the light of day thirty years be fore the war with Mexico. What chance has a young bride, who learned every thing at college except how to hash brown potac»es, with a stove that has a coughing spell every few minutes, and floods the ktichen with soft coa; smolce. But then, this norid is fuli of bilious husbands who married some prize winner in the Latin course, ami woke up later to find that while she could pin the shoulders of a Greek root to the mat three times out of five she didn't know whether a cook stove could be started from the seat or had to be cranked with a half hitch.

ROMANCE OF A FAMOUS GOLD MINE. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 11 June 1914

ROMANCE OF A FAMOUS GOLD MINE. About forty years ago a Scotsman, Donald Gordon by name, was endeavor ing to make a fortune by cattle graz ing on 640 acres in Queensland. The venture was not a success, and Gordon took little interest in the land, even when his brother Sandy got an idea that.there was wealth in the big me tallic looking boulders on the tract. But neither Sandy nor any of the pros pectors who visited the district suspect ed gold in what they took to be a pure ironstone formation. Ultimately, however, itwo brothers named Morgan, while on a- prospecting tour in 1882. took specimens-away, which panned ut so richly that they at first doubted the evidence of their senses. Eventually the Morgan brothers formed a syndicate to mine the land, they themselves retaining half the inter ests, other shares being sold to Mr. Thomas Hall, thert manager of t1 e Queensland National Bank, his Ln'ot'i.-r Thomas, and others. Donald G'ivb'i was induced to sell the land at £1 an acre—or £640...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 11 June 1914

OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Rusticus") Tliero is surely some economic law that will exact punishment for the de struction of lieiier calves and ewe lambs. Some phases of the matter that do not occur to the average man, but which are, i-overrtheiess} of vital import, were touch-, d upon the other day by Mr. H. J. Manson,_ Trade Commissioner for jNoiy Zealand, when _ interviewed in Melbourne. Referring to the export of ovo Jambs he said:— "The fooihardin<-ss of the practioj should be enforced upon tlio farmer by legislation, or by some other emphatic " means, otherwise the striking decline as shown in the number of sheep an nually taking place must continue, to the detriment of the State. Some ten years ago an agitation took piace in New Zealand for legislation to chccii _ practices that were decimating flocks and herds, and I well remember when the late liu-lurd John Seddon, the Priem Minister, made an announcement on the subjeot.

METALS THAT NEED HOLIDAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 11 June 1914

METALS THAT NEED HOLIDAYS. Ib will perhaps be a revelation to many to learn that metals suffer from fatigue. as much, as man, and feel equ ally strengthened by a holiday. Kepeated "experiments have proved that steel and'wrought iron deteriorate under constant strain or vibration, and if they are denied the necessary rest the time comes when, like the human machine, they collapse altogether, Lord Kelvin has proved tnat iron wires kept in a state of oscillation dur ing the week act quite differently after a Sunday's rest; and that an iron bar subjected to strain will rise 10 per ceiit. in elasticiy after a three weeks' holiday. A 'L!iiss°mer steel rail, which had doiie good service for twenty-two years without a day's holiday, not long ago collapsed altogether under the weight of a train.and broke into half-a-dozen pieces. Singularly enough, cast-iron, which most ]s.?ople" would imagine less durable than steel,'improves greatly in strength under constant shockg. While guns tried a mo....

MORE SCHOOL HUMOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 11 June 1914

MORE SCHOOL HUMOUR. • There is no end to .the howlers from i the schoolroom. An authority on the subject;has just been poihting out that in English literature papers young peor pie are sometimes asked to give their critioisms on certain, books or' authors. They usually rely on criticisms which they- have read in books, but if their memories fail the results are often disastrous. One youthful critic cast aspersion upon Milton when lie wrote: "Milton married a young girl who ran back to her parents; so he wrote a sonnet on divorce.". ''Shakespeare/' affirmed -another young oriftic, "found ed 'As You 'Like It,' on a book pre viously written by Sir Oliver Lodge." "After twice committing suicide, -the j poet Cowper lived till 1800, when lie . died a natural death." Another hope ful wrote: "Sir Walter-Scott's firm of j | publishers. liquified, and he had to ' pay off the national debt before he ' died." And the youthful historian I 1 sagely added: "This wore him out."

CURIOSITIES OF LANGUAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 11 June 1914

CURIOSITIES OF LANGUAGE. The following are a few linguistic whimsicalities. The Germans call a thimble a 'linger hat," which it cer tainly is, and a grasshopper a "hay horse." A glove with them is a "hand shee," showing evidently that they wore shoes before gloves. Poultry is "feather cattle," whilst "the names for the well-known substances oxygen and hydrogen are in their language "sour stuff" and "water stuff." The French, strange to Fay, have no verb , "to stand," nor can a Frenchman speak of "kicking" anyone. The near est approach a Frenchman makes "to it in his politeness is to threaten to "give a blow with his foot"—the same thing to the recipient in each case, but it seems to want the direotness, the energy, of our "kick." Neither has he any word for " baby," or for "home," or "comfort." The terms "upstairs" and "downstairs" are also unknown in French. The Hindus are said to have no word for "friend." The Italians have no equivalent for "hu rniiity." -'Manchester Evening News...
