'ANOTHER FOOTBRIDGE. Cr Coulter asked that a foot • bridgebe erected alongsidethe over head bridge at the east end of the station. If the required land were given the cauncil would form the .footpath. Mr Kilpatrick: You have a bridge; what more do you want?

The site of the proposed bridge was inspected by the Commis sioners, when Mr Kilpatrick pro mised that the request would be acceded to; the council to form approaches and pay a small rent for the land occupied.

Hagelthorn (Minister of Public Works). The night was very wet with the result that a great many were prevented from attending, but as it was, almost every available seat was occupied The joint secretaries, Messrs E. B. Skinner and H. V. Dillon, had everything successfully arranged and with the up-to date style in which the catering was carried out under the personal supervision of Mrs. J. J. Tobias and her attentive staff, it left nothing to mar the evenings enjoy 111 nnt. The Chairma...
The Wid owand the Tombstone [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 5 June 1914
The Wid owand the Tombstone Her hands were soft and cool, as if they had been formed for smoothing the pillows of the dying. And sh'; fulfilled the designs of Providence. She was, first of all, Ada Montgom ery, tlie daughter of a rural dean, and when she was eighteen married her father's curate. Her husband died of his felicity or of the rcn-f-jsa v.i'.::'.:, two years, and she returned to ths rec tory as Mrs. llaultnin. KcTcro t'.:-' crape was more than becomingly fray ed, she engaged herself to an archi tect who had come from town to re store the church after some Laudiau ideal. For five years she scintillated in an artistic set somewhere in Ken sington until one day her husband, Ernest Shandon, was brought homo from his ofllce in apoplexy. After a week's devoted nursing she was again a widow, with a large fortune, and still childless. She passed once more into the seclusion of the rectory, and emerged only when she married a young Gordon Highlander who haJ stopped at the manor fo...

STRANGE TIMEKEEPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 5 June 1914
STRANGE TIMEKEEPERS. To ascertain the time at nigai me Apache Indians employed a gourd 011 wliich the stars of the heavens were marked. As the constellations rose in the sky the Indian referred to his gourd and found out the hour. By turning the gourd around he could tell the order in which the constella tions- might he expected to appear. The hill people of Assam reckon time and distance by the number of quids of betel nuts chewed. It will be remembered how, according to Wash ington Irving, the Dutch Colonial As sembly was invariably dismissed at the last puff of the third pipe of to bacco of Governor Woutcr Van Twil ler. A Montagnis Indian of Canada will set up a tall stick in the snow when travelling ahead of friends who arc to follow. He marks with his foot the line of shadow ca,st, and by the change in the angle of the shadow the oncoming party can tell, on arriving at the spot, about how far ahead the leader is.' . In love-making ,as in other arts, these &lt;lo it best...

II. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 5 June 1914
II. A little kick, a shudder, and the great Gneugeot swept rushing over •-he grass of the aerodrome. Traill .jeyed the snoring engine up and up. .hen, with the easy lift of an athlete .alcing a hurdle, the plane was off the ground. Traill's machine banked sharply, ind the plane swung up in .lyric cir cles en spiral. In a moment they .vere above the highest lace-work of trees, and before them in the clarity of •.he morning lay, like, a pattern of iright jewellery, the valley that is he centre of Pomerannia. Traill ■ hoicked his machine up luickly to avoid the down-trend of the trees, swept gently to the left, md in an instant had opened out, ind they were skimming in their ef :ortless and irresistible rush north wards. The Baronessa leant forward from :he passenger seat and shouted in his ear. "Thirty-one minutes' start. Can we catch him:" , Traill nodded to a trembling steel finger on a dial. As the woman look ed, the finger crept round from figure to figure. Now it was 63, now it w...
THE AIRMAN AND THE ANARCHIST. AN AVIATOR'S MAD FLIGHT AND FIGHT FOR THE LIFE OF A KING. I. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 5 June 1914
THE AIRMAN AND THE ANARCHIST. AN AVIATOR'S MAD FLIGHT AND FIGHT FOR THE LIFE OF A KING. Three perspiring and explosive men and a woman as calmly beautiful and as regal as one of Bouguereau's Madonnas, called Frazer Traill out of bed in the bitter grey of the morning. Frazer Traill had been working late into the night, putting the final touches to his monoplane for the big £5000 duration flight. He was in an irritable mood. He refused to per form the ceremony of donning an ade quate costume, and, in pyjamas and dressing gown, went down at the heels of the night-porter to the hotel lounge. When he looked into the calm, eyes of the woman, he wished at least he had brushed his hair. The men annoyed him. They were excitable creatures, true Latin sons of the Pomerannia principality, in which they all were at that moment. They all talked together. They as saulted him with their visiting cards. From the wild and eddying cloud of their conversation Frazer Traill un derstood that they wanted ...
RUINED EYE. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 5 June 1914
RUINED EYE. By Melville Davisson Post. (From "Saturday Evening Post.") Monsieur Joncquel waited on the great terrace for the Viscount. Be low .were the endless wheat fields, crim.son dotted with poppies, the white road stretching away towards Paris, and the ancient village nest ling into the hill. The chateau was almost sheer above. One could toss a sLone from its terrace into the narrow street. The brilliant morning sun lay on the world, a vagrant wind wandering inland from the sea rippled the wheat fields into waves, and on the horizon now and then a puff of grey dust would spring up, and a big Frenclj limousine would crawl out like a black .beeLle on the white ribbon road. "Vraiment! It is wonderful—this picture!" he said. "But what is God about, to hang it before the door of the meanest man in Europe?" lie was dressed for the road—a light English tweed, a grey cap and motor goggles, of which the .big green lenses gave him the huge eyes of some poisonous insect. He removed the go...
III. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 5 June 1914
The country flung past beneath them, 'blurred like a film. The De Bolll mono grew larger before them, but before them, too, grew the massy and sombre magnificence of the foyal forest. The plane was but two miles away, the Venne Forest less than twelve. Traill cajoled his machine yet high er. He wanted to be above the De Bolli in the test of skill and daring that was presently to come. He was balancing himself even against the wind pressure like a thing of springs and wire. His handsome face was strained and tense, all his muscles braced taut, his quick hands fingerel the controls with exquisite delicacy, and under him the great plane respon ded like a thing vibrant and alive. The De Bolli came nearer and near er in perceptible degrees. They could see the back of the anarchist Frast naic as he sat rigid, concentrated on the working of his machine, totally unaware, thanks to the noise of his own tractor, of their approach. They could see the play of his hands a3 he nursed her cleverly...
THE TURF. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 12 June 1914
THE TURF. The Victorian mare Orvieto, ridden by R. Lewis, captured the Birthday Gup at Adelaide on Saturday, another * Victorian (Hamburg Belle) being second. Southerly, who is well-known by South Gippsland race-goers, ran prominently in the Stseple chase at Flemington on Saturday, running second to The Miser, who won by two lengths. Anacrion again showed his superiority in the Hunt Club's Cup at Flemington on' Saturday by winning easily. He is four years old, and promises to take an important part in the big jumping events at Flemington and Caulfield during the next couple of months.
The Island of Java. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 12 June 1914
The Island of Java. (By An Australian Abroad.) We had a very pleasant trip in I the Montoro from Australia to | Sourabaya (Java), where we left the ship. We called at Cairns, Thursday Island, and Port Dar win, making a short stay at each place. At Cairns we had time to visit the well known Barron Falls, which are well worth seeing. We had nearly three weeks in Java, and found the time all too short, as it is a most interesting place, and one that- anybody could easily spend three or four months in without becoming tired. It is totally different to anything we have seen before, and is as unlike Australia as it is possible to imagine. It is an island only about 600 miles long, and yet contains a population of thirty five millions, so you can form an opinion as to how crowded it is. But it is so fertile a country that it not only supports all these mil lions, but in addition is the prin cipal source of revenue that Hol land possesses. It grows every thing and anything, and . they make ...
Double Dissolution. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 12 June 1914
Double Dissolution. Now that a double dissolution has been granted by ibe Gover nor-General, battle is in the air, and, if Labor is to be routed, Liberals must be enthusiastic and well organised. That the number of votes recorded for the Senate Six was the largest ever polled at an Australian pre-election augurs well for the earnestness and dis cipline of the Party in the coming struggle. Yet to affect a belief that the Cook Ministry is on the eve .of an easy and overwhelming victory would be idle. For some years the Commonwealth has been politically a House so , equally divided that it has been hard to say to which side ihe majority inclined. Nor has there . ■ been any marked indication of a noteworthy change in the elec toral strength of Parties, vim and generalship will win, but will win with little to spare. Mr Cook b'as long been eager to get to the country. Labor now thinks that the chances are in its favor. Its leaders fancy that the pendulum swing is to wards it. Liberals ha...
