TRICKED. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 24 June 1914
T1UCKED. "1 say," shouted an urchin, poking his head in at the village butcher's shop, "there's a big black dog just, gono down the street, with a tonguo in its mouth." - Seizing a chopper, the butcher rush ed out after the canine tlHof. lift caught a glimpse of a dog just turning the street corner, and gavo chase; but after much dodging and twisting, .eventually tost sight of the animal. "Havo you seen a big black dog with a tongue in its mouth?" he asked of a group of loiterers. "With n tonguo in its mouth?" said ono, derisively. "Did you over see one without?"

When lie reached the wall lie saw a horse and trap standing unattended on the road outside. Looking cau tiously over tho wall, he saw that two inon had just disinterred the corpse. Standing in the shadow of tho wall, ho .saw them bring out the ' body and place it-in a. sitting position on the seat of the trap, so that when they drove atvay .the body, which they had wrapped in a dark cloak, would in the dim light look like a third man sitting between the other two.

WEATHER AND CRIME. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 24 June 1914
WEATHER AND CRIME. Tile weather—that ever-fruitiful to pic of conversation—has now, in addi tion to its other shortcomings, to bear tiio stigma of being the indirect cause of much of the crime that is commit ted. A French scientist declares that at certain seasons of the year the ba rometer might be taken as a criminal register, just as well as a guide t° atmospheric changes, because under certain conditions of the atmosphere .murders and suicides aro bound to be inoro plentiful than under other con ditions. "During the passage of «• storm where tho temperature is ex cessive," lio ' says, * "the atmosphere being thoroughly saturated with mois ture, a person perspiring very readily finds no relief from evaporation. In consequence ho. naturally /eels very muoli depressed,- and, if his mind is not a strong one, is likely to suffer a complete mental breakdown, often fol lowed by tho awful restflts recorded from time to time in tho newspapers." Tho theory, is not unreasonable, and a prom...

COST OF FLYING. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 24 June 1914
COST OF FLYING. It is estimated that the fuel nnd j oil costs of an aeroplane of high, power run into about £1 per hour of iiight. Tho British Army bas from 120 to 150 aeroplanes, ami as each machine is expccted to do about 2o0 hours' flying annually, tho significance of high fuel costs will begin to bo appreci ated. It will be measured by a fuel and oil bill of about £30,000 a year at retail prices. Thoso who read tho signs expect tho rate of inorenso ot air-craft to continue to 1000 aero palues. and many dozens of airships within the next two years, meaning probably a fuel and oil hill of a quar ter of million sterling. It has been further estimated that on tho above supposition of development aer onautics may be expected withi-i two vear« to take one-sixth part of tho t'uej consumption of all tho motor vehielos in Britain.
