Terribly Tempted. A SERIAL STORY BY ANNABEL GRAY. CHAPTER VI. THE COLONEL SPEAKS HIS MIND [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 March 1914

THE COLONEL SPEAKS HIa5 MIND "Ohl love, ohl tirel Oncu he drow AWith. one long kiss my whoi souln through My lips, as sunlight drinketh dow." Leuore's retlections during this visi, of the Colonel were of a mixed nature, that generailly assail an undovelopedl human mind in presence of etriklin ovelties of characteor and tone. What can be mere uncertaiin lani the hopes and fears thal rule a young girl's consciousness? Althougl she had seen and heard a good deal o' this world's wickedness, it was yet dilli cult icdr her to realise that a large por tion of mankind were heartless villains. The young trust instinctively, and was it likely that she could be altogether unmoved by the glances which differedl entirely from poor Philip's sad, ador ing gaze? Instead of believing 'that this world was only a sort of experimental Inferno where e'il often got the best of it, she.would rather liken it to a min...
HAPPINESS AND RICHES. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 March 1914
HAPPINESS AND RICHES. It is naturally difficult for most of tis to realise that thle thing we think we wanlt most is probably tile last thing it is good for us to have. Nine people out of ten, for instance, think they want bigger wages, while as a matter of fact, it is less, and not more wages they really want. The happiest per son I lmve ever met among the poor, of course-the rich are never exactly happy--was a potter who retired fronl business because hIis. kilu was cracked and hlie lhad not enough spare cash to have it repaired, but he had land enough, all the same, to keep himself and his family in all the necessities and mafly of the luxuries of life.-Godfrey Blount. in "The New Freewoman." "Wihv don't you make .onuny.wash his haslds once I' a while?" "They are taking finger prints at ;his school." answered the wife, "and you know how the ohild loves to excel."

THE SCEPTICISM OF POSTERITY [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 March 1914
THE SCEPTICISM OF POSTERITY There is one very-large, very sad and very certain truth about all the rela tions of past and future. That truth is this: the future will not believe us. It will'not believe our most solemn and profound assertions. It will ration aliso them or ridicule them; in one or another it will explain them away for that is the most certain thling about tho attitude of men towards their re mote ancestors. They will bolieove the testlinony of material things or of their own conjectures, but never the sworn word of their fathers. WVere it not so, there would be no room for historical eritidTsms, or perhaps for his tory as a science at. all,--Hilaire Bel-. loo. "Pall Mall Magazine."

DISAPPEARING LAKES. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 March 1914
DISAPPEARING LAKES. The disipearance of Lake Canterno, near Rome, will not seriously affect the map of Italy. 'Only the local fislier tafolk will miss its few square miles, should its waters never return from the subterranean caves into which they havd again disappeared. The Russian Gov ernment, however is much concerned about the greatest of all the world's lakes, the Caspian Sea, which covers an area of 180,000 square miles. The swaters of this great inland sea are slowly disappearing, and the Imperial Academy of Scienoes has appointed a Commission to investigate on the spot tihe cause. Unless the shores of the C?lspian are rising (which has been sug gested) there seems no dther explana tion but that the water is passing away by some subterranean channel. The British Colonial Ofice has also recently alterations in the level of Lake Vio ordered an enquiry into Inexplicable toria, which oocuples. some 28,000 squareomiles of the British East Africa Protectorate, snd occasionally sink...

RHODES' STORIES. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 March 1914
RHODES' STORIES. Some good stories of Cecil Rhodes are told by one of his secretaries, Mr. Gordon Le Sueur, in a volume by him entitled "Cecil Rhodes: the Man and his Work," just published by Mr. John Murray. Mlr. Le Sueur deals with the allegation that Rhodes was a wo man-hater by quoting Rhodes' own words--"Womenl Of course, I don't hate women. I like them, but I don't want them aewhys fussing about." An other time he saidd"You may ask me why I never married, and do you know? I answer you very fairly that I have never yet seen the womaan whom I ,suld get on in the same house with." He tried to give the impression of be ing without feelitig, but pothing is more absurd. He was crammed with senti ment to his finger-tips, but adopted a orutal manner and rough exterior to cover up the weakness of sentiment, and thuis many a broken-hearted man aid woman left him with the impres sion--entirely erronedus-that he was a callous brut lackinig in human sym plthyi." Rhodes was very. careless a...

WHERE NITROGEN IS PLENTIFUL [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 March 1914
WHERE NITROGEN IS PLENTIFUL Nitrogen is plentiful in thIe air all aronmd us, Only one-fifth of the air is oxygen, while four-fifths are nitro gen. Thie nitrogen is simply a dlilut ant of the oxygen, for should we be surrounded by an atmosphere composed entirely of oxygen, the combustion with in our bodies would be too rapid, and we would quickly be consumed. Nitro gen oil the contray is a very inert sub stance, seeming to object to being com bined with other elements, and a know ledo of this fact enables clhemists to uISc it for many purposes, for which other substanccs would noat answer. It is thIe active agent of dynamite, gunpowder, nitro-gly:earine, etc., the explosive power being due to the readi- I noess with -wlhichl the nitrogen seeks to looson itself from thie elemnhts with whioh it is combined. It is only within recent years that successful attempts have been made to secure nitrogen from the air on a largo scale. - We can buy it nor, in the forms of nitrate of lime or nitr...
A MINISTER AND HIS SALARY. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 March 1914
A MINISTER AND HIBS SALARY. Mr Lloyd George gave some inter? esting particularis regarding his finaan cial standing in giving evidence befoia the Marconi Committee. "When a man become a Minister," hlie said, "he is given a substantial salary, and it. was very substantial to me, having regard to tile life I had at that time as a solicitor. It was very substantial, and I won't deny it. The only thing I wish to say about it is that it was larger than that received by my predecessor, as there is a sug gestion that I am the first Chancellor to receive £5,000 a year. "Every Minister knows his posi tion is precarious and his glories trans itory, and he has to take that inite account and must think of the time when others, more worthy than him self, will fill the same position. As we know by history, parties come and parties go, Ministers have to change, and he must look to the faot that any day he may drop. With regard to that. I. thercfoe, had to consider what every Minister has to consid...
COCAINE IN CALCUTTA. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 March 1914
COCAINE IN CALCUTTA. T'he evils of the cocaine habit and .ts alarminig aspread in Calcutta - are well brought ont. in a reoent contribution to the -. 'Statesmnin." It appears that tho sellers of pan are amorig the agenits who promote the consumption of the. drug. At first they sold two-pice pack els, but police prosecutions stopped this trade; and now they quietly place one grain of cocainai with the betel and lime, and this mixture has become quite poprular. The smugglers of the drug ilave thus a market always open to them, and they are encouraged to con tinue their illicit trade. . As to the consunmors of cocaine in its "neat" form the alarming feature is that the deal ers employ boys and girls to carry on the shluggling. No less than 13 per cent of the juvenile crime of Calcutta i?s traced to the traffio in cocaine, child ren being found vending the two-pice pitckets oil over the city. The increase in the number of prosectitions by the Excise and other authorities is siffi cient;...
HOW TO DISINFECT A COWSHED. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 27 March 1914
liOW TO DISINFECT A COW SHED. It is always good practice where a contagious disease of any kind has gin?dld access to the herd to disinfect -the entiro stable. In fact, this is often imperative if it is desired to stamp out tile disease. Disinfection is absolutely nlecessary where tubercu losis has gained access to the herd. Bul lttiin 123 of the Pennsylvania State College of Agriculture recently pub ishbd gives a plafi for disinfecting the stables which is va!uable for this as well as for some other diseases: 1. Remove all manure litter, loose dirt. 1ose. rotten boaras and scrape :he floor clean. 2. Sweep the ceilings and walls free from cobwebs. dust anrd dirt. 3. Washl the feed boxes, mangers, bails and partitions with hot water cuitaining enough lye of washing pot: der to cut tile dirt. • Scrub all these objects rigorously with a stiff brush. 4. Spray the walls, ceilings and floors with. bichloride of mercury solu tion (1-1000) or a 5 per cent. carbolic acid solution (not crude....
THE UNINTERESTED WELL-TO-DO. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 27 March 1914
THE UNINTERESTED WELL-TO-DO. lac does not think of the Eng..s-. working classes as knowing more L~an the well-to-do people about life in tue colonies, but according to the London correspondent of the Sydney "Daily Telegraph,'" this is so, and the cause is the extensive advertising campaign undertaken by the Dominions to attract immigrants. The writer has been present at scores of lectures on Aus tralia in the provinces, and the audi ence has always been made up of work ers with an occasional farmer or small tradesman. The plain truth is that those who have a living wage are wedl satisfied to remain in England, and in ignorance of the Empire abroad. Some day when the Commonwrealth Govern insnt votes as mIuch money for the ad vertisement of the wares of a continent as the noaker of a populqr pill spends in singing the praises of his pills, we may carry the name of Australia into the richer homes in England. But at present, interest in us, and in our land is confined almost exclusively...
FRENCH ARMORED AEROPLANES. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 27 March 1914
FRENCH ARMORED AERO PLANES. It appears that the German War Department took the lead -in protecting aeroplanes by armour plating, and at ter this the idea was taken up in France, where several armoured flyers were to be seen at the last Paris-·how.. However, the French Army did not go extensively into the usatuwr before at tention was called to it by two events, one being the experiments made at tha Toulon arsenal in firing upon aeroplanes last-year, and the second the results of the first war in the Balkans. It was then recognised that all aeroplanes were vulnerable when - flying below 4000tt., and with the present .yste:u of ulbsarltug, a machine needs to fly as low as 2000 to 2500ft. in. order to see the state of alfairs on the ground, It would thus be exposed to artillery and infantry fire. Two solutions were pre sented for protecting aeroplanes, first to armour plate for the mllen,- mlotor and devices, or only to protect the aeroplane guns. and in this case keep the light very h...

Presentatlon: at- Long wood Popular Race Club Seocrtary The popular secretary of the Longwood Race Club, Mr Jack Houston, who has disposed. of his business interests at Lonigwood and is moving to'Seymour, was on Wed nesday evening paid a pleasing mark of :ecognition by the members of the club in the presentation to him of a handsome tea and coffee service, suitably inscribed. The presentation was made at the Mechanics' Institute ball at Long wood, by the President of the club, Mr C. M. F.

Cr Brodie endorsed the president's remarks, and said that when he took up the secretarial duties the club's finances were in a bad state, but since then they had seen the club's meetings come well to the front ...
