BUYING NEW IMPLEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
BUYING NEW IMPLEMENTS. In buying new implements or ma chines, every man will 'be guided by his own experience or fancy. We find one man swearing by a certain make of machine, and tlie next neighbor by another make, both claiming that their machine is best, and maybe it is, ac cording to conditions and usage. In considering the various points in fa vor of any machine, one should always take into account the accessibility of each part. One has often spent an hour or more in trying to get at some part needing repair -while the actual job has only taken 10 minutes to da. A Scottish farmer recently paid- a visit to a South of England cattle show, and while walking around got talking with a native farmer. Neither could well understand what the other said. The Scotsman got a little net tled at this, and put it down to the Englishman's stupidity. "Man," he said at last, "yer cows moo a' right, and yer cocks craw quite plain, but I'm "hanged if I can mak' you oot."
A PARABLE OF MODERN BABYLON. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
PARABLE OF MODERN BABYLON. There was a boy, and his father said unto him, "My son, work to day, for the time cometh when you must leave school." And he said, "Yea, father I will study this even ing." But a chum came round, and in the heat of "knuckle-up" the les sons were forgotten. So on the mor row he broke down in translation, and was soundly swished; and more over, at the year"s end he got no prize. Years passed, and a great man said to him, "Young man, come round to my ofllce in the morning and I will make you my hireling, and you shall amass much wealth." But on the morrow the youth said, "I will go after lunch, for my stomach crieth out for food." And so he dal lied with the flesh-pots till 1.30. And when he showed himself at the office, behold the vacancy was filled by a Scot, who pandered not to his stom ach-yea, even one who bore on his 'scutcheon, "Do it now." Then in the fulness of time the young man loved a maid, and lie said: "Behold, she is very beautiful, and my soul...
CHAPTER XXVIII. The Cause Celebre Ends. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
CHAPTER XXVIII. The Cause Celebre Ends. l'uDlic curiosity had been whetted by the first days o£ the trial. Tho whole story, from first lo last, was so extraordinary and romantic a one. Hot arguments and altercations oc cupied those of tho public who had sufficient leisure to discuss the events of the passing hour. Such a ro mance had not been crystallised into actual, real fact for many a long day. Wars and rumors of wars were in abeyance for the time being. Over the family meals, from the highest to the lowest in society, the Montanur case was excitedly, sometimes pas sionately discussed. Many espoused the cause of the supposed murderer, and, against all moral or religious law, upheld that justifiable homicide, if in deed Charles Daunce were actually dead, was to be lauded rather than condemned. Others, rigid in their ac cepted canons of right and wrong, de fended the victim of Lord Montamor's summary revenge-held that every unit had the right to act for his oi lier own benefit-tha...
A NEW CHUM IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
A NEW CHUM IN AUSTRALIA. Mr. Morley Roberts, the well-known author, has been detailing in the cur; rent number of the "Strand Maga zine" some reminiscences o£ his life in Australia and America. As a lad of nineteen he quarrelled wii.« his father and took ft steerage passage to Aus tralia in an old iron eliip called the Hyderabad. The sea had always ap pealed to him, and instead of idling his time away he spent the long months consumed in the voyage in working as if he were one of the crew. The officers were white, but the crew were Hindus, Malays and See dee boys, and during the voyage not only did he acquire a knowledge of seamanship which stood him in good stead later in his strange chequered career, but he also obtained a working knowledge of the lingua franca of the Eastern seas. As a record of strenu ous endeavor, the distinguished au thor's simple narrative takes a front rank even in this country of work and thoroughness. Mr. Roberts says: - It is perhaps hard for a writer to ...
SUCCESS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
SUCCESS. Success shall come to him who waits; But not to him of folded hands To him who hopes, but hesitates, And simply by the roadside stands. Success is won by effort strong, By unremitting, earnest stress. The way it travels seems o'er-long? To haste its course, go, meet Suc cess! Why waste the time to drift and swing And watch the careless .billows roll, Relying that some chance will bring You somehow some day to your goal? var better that, sails spread the while To catch the faintest favoring breeze, You man the sweeps, and mile by milei You still advance across the seas. Go, meet Success! For not enough That you should patience have alone. Up signal! On! Though fields be rough, "i'is those shall reap who first have sown. Each day- some little progress make; Letm not on trustful idleness, Another route. So meet Success! Lest, ere it reaches you, it take A morning paper alludes to "Hoard ings that Shriek." They must be of the "yell-oli" variety.
THE ENGLISHMAN SCORED. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
THIS ENGLISHMAN SCORED. As usual the Englishman and Yan kee had been arguing about the won ders of each one's native land, and the man from dollar-land had not had the best of it by any means, so he thought he would talk of their millionaires. "Do you know," said lis, "that every time John D. Rockefeller draws a breath he earns a dollar?" ''No," replied the Englishman bland ly. . . Well, it is so," continued the Yankee. "Ah !" said the other suddenly, "that accounts tor liis wearing knic ker bookers so often." 'Why does it?" questioned' the Yankee. "So that he can draw his breath in short pants," was the laughing re joinder. An East Coast duek, which recent ly laid 143 eggs in 158 days, has made another effort to astonish the world by producing an egg weighing 7Jo;;. When it was broken open a complete egg of normal size and ;;l:c!l was found 'within embedded in the white and yolk of th-e outer one. Both were complete eggs.

CHAPTER XXVII. A Bolt from the Blue. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
CHAPTER XXVII. A Bolt from the Blue. The trial began at the Old Bailey some months after the magistrates had decided to submit the charge to a superior court. Within the court the atmosphere was heavy. The lamps burned sullen ly, shadows gathered in corners, yet there was little about the groups in the well ot the court suggestive of the fact that a man, and a peer of the realm, was about to be tried for his life. The many barristers, ali who could spare time from their own affairs to be present at this cause celebre, were there, talked with much animation, if in subdued tones, their heads together like so many cauli flowers-some with their hands clasp ed under their gowns looking vastly like ravens or big crows. Now and then a laugh made Gwendolen, seat ed in a corner of the court, Miss Durn ford at her side, wince and quiver. Ronald, who was somewhere 011 the back benches, had tried to prevent her from being present. But she was firm. Her anguish that she had been the actual cause...

The Express. THURSDAY, APRIL 16, 1916. Tungamah Brass Band. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
THURSDAY, APRIL 16, 1916. Tungamah Brass Band. THERE should go hand in hand with the present earnest effort to re-vitalise the Tungamah Agricultural Society a kindly resolution on the part of townspeople to solidly strengthen and consistently support the local brass band. Despite the migratory mem- bership roll it has experienced, satis- factory progress is being made by instrumentalists, and our band will compare favorably with that possessed &nbsp; by many country towns of far greater pretensions. What redounds chiefly &nbsp; to its credit is the excellent services it has rendered to the Wangaratta Hospital. The secretarial report submitted at the recent annual meeting showed that the sum of £112 16s 6d was collected last year at four district centres where Hospital Sunday de- monstrations were organised by the band. This is, indeed, a brilliant achievement on the part of a small, struggling, and scantily supported &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; body ...

PERSONAL. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
PERSONAL. A complimentary send-off was ten- dered to Mr Wm. Hall in the local fire station last evening. The presen- tations took the form of a purse of sovereigns from the public, and a souvenir from the fire brigade. The function, a full report of which will appear next issue, was an unqualified success.

THE OLD SONGS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 23 April 1914
THE OLD SONGS. I'm fond o£ "Annie Laurie"; To hoar it is a boon. Nobody in that song declares Tliat he's a Zulu coon. "Washington Herald." And I like "Highland Mary"; The rhymes are only fair, But no one in that song asserts His loved one is a bear. "Cleveland Plain Dealer." 1 like "The Miller's Daughter." I do; I always did. Yet no one in that lyric says, Believe me, she's some kid! "New York Mail.' And I like "Swanee River," When uttered sweet and low. For no one in that song confides That mother's got a beau.

Taught by Experience [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 23 April 1914
Taught by Experience He entered the shop of a fashionable bootmaker, n look of determination on his face. It was such a look as one sees on the face of a man who is firmly resolved to carry out, at all ha ; sards, a decision which will change the whole course of his life. "H'm!" ho began, as the assistant stepped forward and politely question ed him as to his requirements In feet beautifiers. "I want a pair of shoes for m.v wife, Mrs. Brown." "Yes, sir, certainly," said the young man, briskly. "Same style and size r,s !ast week?" ".Same style. Size, fives-wide fives," replied Brown, decidedly.

"I thought not," returned Brown. "I am! ! am not going to suffer half an hour's purgatory...
PREFER THE HUMDRUM. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 23 April 1914
PREFER THE HUMDRUM. Many women, now happily married and in the prime of their maturity, ?>re apt to smile at the remembrance of their dreams of the ideal lover. They would not exchange the hum drum husband 'who perhaps goes to sleep after dinner regardless of a wife's presence for the most perfect lover who loved merely In their im agination. Perhaps they have discovered that, for their own part, they, too, may dif fer strongly from the ideal wife of which the husband dreamed. There may be shortcomings on iboth aides. But both husband and wife have grown to love the imperfect human being who has lived with them for so many years, and who has long taken Uie place in their hearts of the most fascinating but unreal man or woman who went by the name of their ideal.
FRESTON TOWER. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 23 April 1914
FRESTON TOWER. At Freslon, near Ipswich, stands a picturesque 'building known as Fres ton iTower, which was constructed un der somewhat romantic circumstan ces. The owner of the estate upon which the tower stands was Lord de Freaton, whoso beautiful daughter, Ellen, possesed intellectual abilities I of a high order.

Accord ingly Freston Tower was erected as a place of study and recreation for the gentle Ellen de Freston.
