PSYCHIC SENSE MAGIC IN BUSINESS [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 27 February 1914
PSYCHIC SENSE MAGIC IN BUSINESS Is the psychic sense more developed in Americans than in Englishmen? The question is raised by the follow ing interesting letter by M.B.G. (Hamp stead) to the editor of "The Express":— I have seen Mr G. K. Chesterton's play "Magic," and I am bound to ad mit that It interested and amused me as much as anything I have seen for years. Neverthelesg£.or perhaps because oC i that, I have SSstrong objection to raise. The play deals with a professional con jurer who, in addition to his trade, is well developed on the psychic side, and able to make a modest use of black magic. Of course, the conjurer is in love with a lady. The fly in the oint ment is the lady's brother, who repre sents all that is crass, cheeky, ignor ant and bumptious, and is likewise vul garly sacrilegious. Here is where my objection comes in. The brother is an English boy, and the reason he is so ignorant and so im pervious in regard to spiritual matters is said to be that he has been livi...
PRISON PANTOMIME [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 27 February 1914
PRISON PANTOMIME Strolling across the yard at Chelms ford Gaol (says the London "Evening News") a man decently dressed in on overcoat and bowler hat requested the warder to open the gates for him, "as he had finished repairing- the "organ." The warder remarked carefully, "What's your name?" turning to the visitors' bo«k. '.'Griffin," said the man who had finished repairing the organ. But "Grif fin" was a name which did not seem to have been entered, and the warder thought he would keep the gates closed for the moment. In the meantime to telephoned to the office, and the quick arrival of Officials showed that his caution was justified. "Griffin" was at once recognised as ono of the prisoners. It was found that he had slipped away unobserved during exercise, and passing through the kitchen garden, entered the probation warders' quar ters. There he had changed his clothes —and also secured a gold watch chain.
"GO I MUST" CALL OF THE ANTARCTIC. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 27 February 1914
"00 I MUST" CALL, Op THE ANTARCTIC. (By Sir Ernest Shackleton, in "The Dally Mail.") "Yonder the long horizon lies . And there, by night and day, The old ships draw to port again. And the young ships sail "away: And come I may, but go I must, And if men ask me why, You can lay the blame on the sun and stars, And the white road and the sky." I have often been asked, what can one see in the cold, inhospitable regions of the Antarctic? And, confronted by a bald question such as that, it is hard to give an answer. The mere fact that one feels what Keats calls " The dearth of human words, the roughness of moral speech," shows that there must "be an intangible something that draws one back to the wild wastes of the Antarctic. And it is there, if those of us that know it could only set it down in so many words. Even since- we were last there we have thought and dreamed of the wide stretches of snow and ice, the silence of those places where men never trod before, the wonder of the unknown ...

V.R.C. AUTUMN MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 27 February 1914
V.R.C. AUTUMN MEETING. Now that we have arrived at the season of "fair autumnal skies, when earth's ripo treasures meet admiring eyes," there is a short truco in the never-ending friendly struggle between nature and man so far as rural indus tries are concerned. Work on the farm and station, though never at a stand still, yet affords a breathing space, and tlie aunual pay-day, so far as rural producers are concerned, having ar rived, a longing eye is turned towards [he metropolis. So as to allow that happy comoination between business and pleasure which justifies a little un usal expenditure, the V.ll.C. comes forward with its usual auuimn pro gramme full of rich things for race horse owners and the public alike. Country visitors and town residents alike can, during that first week in March, throw care to the winds and forget for a while that there are such things as ever-wrangling Parliaments, industrial disputes, or any other of the thousand and one troubles that go to mar the pea...

LOVE, AMOUR, LIEBE [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 27 February 1914
LOVE, AMOUR, LIEBE No'word in the English language is used, so often from the pulpit as the word "love," but tliis cannot be said of tho ubd of "amour" in Franco, or of "Liebe" in Germany. Nations pour themselves into the tiny moulds of words and give us statuettes 01 themselves. The Anglo-Saxon, the Latin, a;id the Teuton have filled tiieso three words with a certaiu vague phil osophy of themselves, a hazy, compo site photograph of themselves. No one writer or painter, no one iucidenL, no one tragedy no day or year of his tory has done ihis. To us, love is the eoldest, cleanest, as it is perhaps the most loyal of the threo L'Amour Bounds to us seductive, enticing—often, indeed little more th&n lust embroidered to make a cloak for ontiui Liebe is to us friendly, soft, childlike.— -Price Col- I lior, in "Soribner's Maga7.&lt;n«^" AH description of jobbing at the "'Nhill Free Press" at reasonable rates and turnod out in the most up todate style.

BIRDS IN PARKS THE CONFIDING CUSHAT [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 27 February 1914
BIRDS IN PARKS THE CONFIDING CUSHAT That is one of the most wonderful things in London," said a country visi tor, as he stood near the dell at the end of the Serpentine alnd watched a man feeding1 real wild wood-pigeons with grain and peas. Not only (says "The Dally Telegraph") did the pigeons feed about his feet, but presently one of the boldest among them fluttered up and actually settled on the feeder's wrist, suffering Itself there to be gently stroked on the back as it took the food. The countryman stared in undisguised astonishment. j Ho knew that out in his own plough- > lands, where the winter-proud wheat is just now spreading a delicate haze of green over the brown acres, and in the leafless beech woods through which you can see for a quarter of a mile, • against the twenty yards that would limit the view in summer, these same pigeons are the most cautious of wild fowl. You need the cunning of a Red Indian to get near them in the day time, the patience of a Sioux to way-...
CHAPTER XV. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 27 February 1914
CHAPTER XV. The family was gathered together in the delightful sitting room at SoutWbourne, overlooking the promen ade. Mr. Gordon Price, who had con sumed large quantities of champagne since the departure of the bride and bridegroom and the suppression of a telegram, was inclined to restlessness, and had just announced his intention of obtaining a breath of fresh air and asked Philip to accompany. The shadows of evening were deepening. Mrs. Price was on the sofa. Al ready she had complained dolefully of missing Queenie, and had been told by her husband—with intense irony —not to exhibit selfishness. She ought to be thankful that her daughter -was happily married to a worthy fellow— Michael, to wit, God 'bless him! Beryl sat in a shadowed corner, thanlcful that no one as yet had sug gested turning on the lights. When the ne'er-do-well son and the ne'er-do-well father reached the front door, a man on the other side was aibout to ring the -bell. When Mr. Price opened the door he found...

A VISIT TO PORTLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 3 March 1914
A VISIT TO PORTLAND. A. Nhill lady on a visit to Portland writes :—Tho weather in Portland is perfect, and it is impossible to imagine any tropical temperatures down here. Top coats are the order of the day. The baths are still patronized by people anxious to recuperate their health, but not for the sake of cool ness. It takes a lot of courage to leave the steps and take the first plunge in. Almost every day there is a trip in drags to some point of interest. We have been to the blow holes, a trip 16 miles from Portland, through some very rough country, but the beautiful glimpses of the ocean through the hills are enough to compensate for any inconvenience one may have to suffer. There are some places of interest in Portland, although the town itself is very in sanitary, and much behind even our Nhill. We have been to the light house, and the caretaker pointed out the wreck of the ZeaJandia at the foot of the cliffs. There are botani cal gardens, an old battery, and also an iron cau...
