GREATER THAN GOLD By L. T. MEADE, Author of "*fhe Soul of Margaret Rand," etc. Fublislied by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London & Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XIII. While Mrs. Bellairs, in fear and trembling, had been hurrying towards the shabby little shop of Isaac Morde cai, Captain O'Doyle, punctually at 12 o'clock, presented himself at the hotel in the Strand., He inquired for Mr. 'Kruger and sent up his card, on which was inscribed his full name and the cavalry regiment to which he belong ed. He was a remarkably good-look ing young man and, what was far more to tlie point, the generous and noble nature of his Irish heart shone » through his steadfast, steady blue eyes. Captain O'Doyle, however, could not help wondering what a South African solicitor wanted with him. Bellairs had told him nothing beyond urging him very earnestly to go, naming the appointed hour, and assuring him that he c uld not but be pleased with Karl Kruger. He waited somewhat res...

With never a smile (sayB the " Mercury "), judge, Crown prose cutor and court officials accepted the extraordinary situation created in the General Sessions at Sale on Wednesday by the non-ap pearance of Frederick Saunders, who by breaking gaol evaded pre sentment on a charge of being in possession of stolen property from a store in the Mirboo North dis trict. Clerk of Courts Grant ordered that Saunders be placed at the bar, and the gaol officials present would have been only too glad to put him there, had he been within hearing; but, " under the circumstances," as Hi...
THE MISSION OF FLOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 5 June 1914
THE MISSION OF FLOWERS. Mr. Rider Haggard as a novelist has thrilled thousands, but never, perhaps, did his pen do better work than when it formed the following words, constituting, as they do, an enthusiastic and an effective "appre ciation" of flowers: — "I adore flowers," says some lady, contemplating a bouquet of orchids or prize chrysanthemums that others have raised at her expense. But she never watched the wonder of their growth; she never saw the shoot start to life; or the pseudo-bulb form; or day by day the flower Bpike ma ture. All that such a one cares for is the blaze of color when it comes, if even she really cares for this. With those who love the flowers, who, whatever their opportunities, are gar deners born, it is otherwise. The poor womaii, for example, worn out with want, a dweller, perhaps, in the grimy slum of some vast city, who nurtures on the window-sill of her oho room a cactus or rt rose cut ting. When the cactus opens its gorgeous dazzling • cup, white as...
General Hamilton's Report [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 5 June 1914
General Hamilton's Report General Hamilton's report on the military forces of the Com monwealth shows that in the matter of defence there is much for the Liberal Ministry to do'. When in office the Labor Party displayed a praiseworthy desire to lay the foundations of an army and of a navy, which should make Australia safe from foreign at tack. But, so much said, it has been pointed out that much of General Hamilton's report is a condemnation of past business methods, a plea for admiuistra tion in the future. The General insists that Australia's army must have a business branch under a comptroller with a quarter-master-general as second in command. It would be amongst the duties of this branch to watch expenditure closely, to see that Commonwealth thousands go where need is greatest, not neces sarily where demand is most urgent. It would have to de centralise, to establish a pension scheme, to bring about closer co operation with the Defence and other Departments. It is idle, the rep...
HOW NELSON LOST HIS EYE. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 5 June 1914
HOW NELSON LOST HIS EYE. It is a curious fact that no Sine has been able to say precisely when and where Nelson lost his left eye. Some say that the disaster occurred during the siege of Bastia, in 1793, while others decide that it was the siege of Calvi. According to Signor D. Liberato Abarca, General in the ser vice of the Nicaragua!) Republic, both these accounts arc false. He says that it was in the year 1780, when the future "god of the seas," then a post captain in the Royal Navy, was cruis ing along the coast of Central Ameri ca, that he received the wound which added him to the list of one-eyel warriors. After inflicting every pos sible injury, on the Spanish Colonies, Nelson resolved to take by assault the castle of San Carlos de Nicara gua. With a flotilla of launches and other flat-bottomed boats, he rowed up the river of San .Tuan, which flows into the Gulf of Mexico. Tha Spanish commander was laid up in bed with a severe illness, and the garrison, terrified at the impos...

THE FARM TOOL KIT. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 5 June 1914
THE FARM TOOL KIT. Buying tools by tho cheat is a gooi $ray fo have thorn poor, both in qualitj and selection. If you liiven't tho tool you think you need, think twice before borrow ing it from a neighbor. Tho longer you ubo a tool the more kinds of work you will find it capable of doing. Hence the wisdom of buy ing tools one at a time until you find you are equipped. Provide a shop, if it bo only a good bench against a building covered wifcl) a shed roof. With a good cheat, oi tight drawers in the benoh, tools can be kept dry. When you lament the lack of tools, bo sure that it is not a sharpening oi the old ones that is really needed. A sharp tool cloea moro work and better kinds of it than a dull tool. In a pinch, a sharp chisel will tak« th« placo of a plane. There is nothing that will 1m used oftener or more effectively ou th« farm than a heavy crowbar. Don't think you need every size oi bit, drill and chisel. Wood drills are much cheaper than bits, and for farm use in old lumbe...

LEVEL CROSSING FOR CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 5 June 1914
LEVEL CROSSING FOR CATTLE. Cr Riggall brought forward the question of a level crossing for stock on the north side of the trucking yards. It was the opinion of the residents that pro vision must be made for stock to cross the line to the trucking yards other than on the main rop.d across the line. The existing arrangement was a source of an noyance to the public. Shunting was going on sometimes for half the day, and the gates were shut against the travelling public and stock. He bad seen several lots of cattle blocked for half-an-hour or more by trains. Mr Norman had raised an engineering diffi culty, but he (Mr Riggait) was quite sure that the engineering capabilities of the Department were not exhausted. A crossing was most urgently required. Mr Eilpatrick: Why not bring cattle over the main bridge at the east of the township ? Mr Michael: A shire council by-law prohibits cattle being taken through the main streets. Mr Kilpatrick: I have not seen the correspondence in the office o...
