Giving Up the Spirit. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 10 December 1914

Giving Up the Spirit. Some convivial tradesmen In. a small provincial town had sat through a dry Board of Trade meeting which had extended far into the night, and remained to gossip over local affairs. Conversation often begets thirst, and finally Sands, the grocer, remarked: "Boys, I'm dying for a drink!" It wa's past closing-time for the one and only local thirst emporium, but, armed -with'an idea, three of the tradesmen sallied forth to the saloon, whose proprietor lived in rooms up stairs. At the door they set up a pro digious pounding and shouting. A tousled head was thrust through a window, hastily unflung. . "Oh, Otto," the disturbers shouted, "come down quick! Sands is dy ing!" Downstairs came Otto. Once in side, the mode^Y-hier 'tor Sands''re lief was given; a quart of this, a pint of that, and a dozen bottles of the other thing, to say nothing of a demijohn of further restoratives.

He arrived in Paris from the Ri viera, and having hailed a cab at thj* Station drove to his hotel. When he paid the fare he was rather surprised when the - cabby said: "Thank you, Monsieur Conan- Doyle." '•How did you know my name?" Sir Arthur asked. "Quite simply," the cabby replied. "I read in the newspapers that you were coming from Nice. At the sta tion I examined you and saw that you were English. Your. hair seemed to mo to have - been cut by -a .Southern barber,'and'on the .heel of your boot wore "traces of Marseilles mud."

FIXING PRICE OF WHEAT [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 10 December 1914

FIXING PRICE OF WHEAT By D.Ii.W. "That there is nothing now under the .sun" is an axiom accepted by the world for the last -iOOO year;;, ami therefore one is not surprised to:'re member that when 0111- Australian Go vernments rashly entered on the work of fixing the price of one class of food by law, in the alleged interests of consumers, but to the great detri ment of producers, these sapient legis lators were only doing what long ex perience bad shown to be an act of folly. The Victorian and other Govern ments might have been forgiven had they set about this task -with a full consciousncss of its wide-spreading character, but, like a child that inter feres with the delicate machinery of a watch, they were quite satisfied with themselves -when they found that they had by stirring up the works caused the bands to go round at a faster rate. That' in a little while the machine thus ignorantly inter fered with should suddenly come to a full, stop with a whirr and a whiz is of no moment...

COWARD OR HERO? I. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 10 December 1914

COWARD OR. HERO? By li, G. .MacLiUiriii. Philip Maxwell's ambition was to become an artist; but Fate liad ruled otherwise. The position in which he now found himself was unfortunate to the last degree. He had wasted sever-' al of the best years of his life In painting pictures which nobody would buy, and doing magazine illustrations which no editor would accept. How lie had lived in the interim was a problem. And now at twenty-four, when he should have been in a fair way of earning, if not; fame and for tune, at least a competence, he was penniless, stranded, and had to be gin afresh in a new: line. He had got a job at the gasworks, through the influence of a friend. The friend had explained that the outlook was not particularly rosy, especially to a man of Philip's ambitions; but It would do for a start, and if Philip proved patient and persevering, and was alive to any chance opening that might present itself, there was no tell ing what he would rise to in the end. Philip had appl...

II. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 10 December 1914

II. The foreman came to. Philip with a grin on his face, and said: "Theve's a chance for you to use your hartistic abilities, young feller. The big gasorafeter wants painting, and the painting foreman is short handed, so I've told him lie "can have you. Get a move on; they're just ready ; for starting."1 The gas company had its own staff of painters on the premises, who were available for all sorts of work. Need less to say, Philip shrank from doing such work; but he knew that if he put his objections into words, he would have a very rough time of it 'at the hands of the foreman, so he accepted with the best grace he could. Me did the work assigned to him in an efficient manner, and won the ap proval of the painting foreman. The tank would take some days to com plete. As the work proceeded, Philip was worried by the observations of a gang ot hooligans who infested the neighborhood of the gasometer. They were known as the gas-tank gang, and were a terror to the people who lived in th...
