LEARNING THE LANGUAGE. While on holiday last year we came across a guest-house looking delight fully imposing in a charming setting of an old-world garden. . Seeing that we were interested, the secretary invited us to look round. . As we moved about, we noticed a man engaged on various little odd jobs, ana were surprised tnat a man aoing these things should appear so gentle manly and well dressed. We remarked upon it to the secretary, and she told us that he was an Austrian professor whose home was in Vienna,! and that he wished to learn the English lan guage. He came to England on holi day, and' while looking round the guest-house he discovered they re quired a man for 'night porter and general duties.' He applied for the post and obtained it, thinking that such a situation would afford him un limited opportunities of learning 'Eng- lish as she is spoke'! Not only is this man making the most of his opportunities. He made the opportunity.

A PUBLIC DUTY. One sees all types of girls on the trams, buses, ami trains in their trek to the city — most of. them going to work in oflices or. in shops. Some of them, too, are delightful to see. They look fresh, Avell-groomed, and cheerful; they have a bright 'Good 'morniris' for. their acquaintances, 'and- have prob ably a book or paper Avith them to occupy them on; the journey. '' Some-' ' how the sight of a neat and. charming sort of girl has a._ very; cheering effect, however grey arid 'depressing the'Avea ther. No matter Iioav cheap and old her clothes are, she has put them on at neatly as she can; her hat is not a good one, but it is put on at a smart angle, and her shoes are polished. But/-. you Avill also see the kind of girl.who has dragged herself lazily out of bed, tnrown her clothes on anyhow, and: is now going, unwillingly, to Avork.

ALSATIAN DOG. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 15 February 1934
ALSATIAN DOG. Mr Colin Tonkin, of Ellowra, Bathurst . (N.S.W.) , ? writing to the 'National Advocate,' has a word to say in favor of the Alsatian dog^. Re cently, he stated, he noticed that a cattle dog and. a, half bred fox terrier attacking a flock of sheep, savagely flanking them and forcing them to their destruction. His Alsatian, whicn. was witn mm, lmmeaiaieiy shot ahead and leaped on the two attacking dogs. He. vanquished the* terrier after a short fight, breaking its back. He then commenced to chase the other dog, which fled, after 28 sheep and 4 lambs had been killed by the desperado. This is sufficient, says Mr Tonkin, to show that even in the company of killer dogs, Alsatians do not attack sheep, but on the contrary, attack other do£s worrying sheep.

Captain Cook 1728 — 1934. To-day is the anniversary of the death of Captain 'Cook, one of the most' eminent among England's. navi- gators, and whose memory will be. perpetuated in' Australia by the erection of his humble home in one of the public gardens of Melbourne, Victoria. This simple building, in stead of being allowed to crumble, is being transported for the purpose. '?' Captain Cook was born in 1728 at Marton, in Yorkshire, England. He was first apprenticed to a haber dasher, but afterwards went to sea, and having spent some years in coasting vessels, entered the Royal Navy, in which he soon rose to the rank of master. The charts and observations which he drew up as marine surveyor of the coasts of Newfoundland and Labrador intro duced him to the notice of the .Royal Society, who offered him the com mand of an expedition to the Pacific Ocean to make observation of the transit of Venus' over the face of the sun. Captain Cook accepted the offer and sailed from Plymouth* on Aug...
