Rain Making. : Among semi-civilized tribes there is almost invariably a " medicine man" who claims to, possess the powei\ of producing rain by means of incantations and sacrificial rites.. The idea is that droughts are due to an offended deity who can be pro pitiated and cajoled into compli ance with human desires. _ Mo dern science corrects this childish theory. Accurate observation of the laws of nature has led to the conviction that the weather is governed by forces that take no cognisance of human needs. The rain falls, or fails to fall, on the just and the unjust with equal impartiality. Up to the...
THE FLAW. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 April 1914
THE FLAW. Within the church a chant ascends, The flower-decked aisle divides The'bridegroom's-relations and friends Prom those that are the bride's. And lie is there, a stalwart youth Of manly charm possessed, And she, a prize in very truth, In pearly satin dressed. The vows are made, the prize is his, Yes, really his, at last! But as he claims the nuptial kiss His brow is overcast.,.^ And when the joybells peal on high, When wine and speeches flow, There comes into his sparkling eye A furtive look of woe. Beside him sits his chosen bride, In his she slips her hand, But though she oiniles on him in pride She does not understand. His hidden anguish, though acute, Must all alone be borne The toecap of his patent boot Is pressing on a corn. -Jessie Pope.
FORTUNES MADE FROM BOXING. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 April 1914
FORTUNES MADE FROM BOXING. Interesting information is given in "How to Becomo a Boxer" regarding earnings of men who havo won laur els in the ring. Packy M'Farlan&lt;\ it is stated, was discovered to have box ing talent when working at the age of fifteen in the Chicago packing yards. Before- he had reached the ago of eighteen he had taken part in no few er than eighteen professional con tests, all of which he won. lie is not twenty-five years of age yet, but ho has accumulated a fortune of about sixty thousand pounds. Battling Nelson, after twelve j^ears of fighting had a bank roll of £40#00, which grew pretty rapidly during the five years which followed until he re tired. Freddie Welsh, it is conjectured, has "tucked away more than £20,000," and George Carpentier, the French idol, has, though not yet twenty, put aside somewhere near £20,000. The gross earnings of Jack Johnson 'between Decemlber 26th, 1908, and July 4th, 1912, are computed to bo over £100,000. From the Jetrr...
THE OLD SONGS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 April 1914
THE OLD SONGS. I'm fond of "Annie Laurie"; To hear it is a boon. Nobody in that song declares That 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. I like "The Miller's Daughter." . I do; I always did. Yet no one in that lyric says, Beiieve 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 abeau.
THE DRINKING VESSEL. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 April 1914
THE DRINKING VESSEL. When birds are entirely confined to Bcratching-ehede the drinking vessel IB often a source of a good deal of trouble and loss of time, for the water gets fouled by the birds scratch ing litter into it, and a wide area# round about the vessel is often made sodden and offensive by the eplash ings. To remove or avoid these ©vile is a simple matter. Take a balMmr rel, place it upside down in the shed, and put the drinking veBsel on tho top of it. Thus elevated, the -water will not get fouled, nor will the litter be made wet. And the birds, being confined, will rather enjoy than other wise the diversion of hopping up to th« liquor table when so inclined.
PREFER THE HUMDRUM. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 April 1914
PREFER THE HUMDRUM. Many women, now happily married and in the prime of their maturity, are apt to smile at the rememfbranco of their dreams of the ideal lover. They would not exchange the hum drum husband who perhaps goes to Bleep 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. Thero may be shortcomings on 'both sido«. But both husband and wife have grown to love the imperfect human being who has lived with them for BO many years, and who has long taken the place in their hearts of the moBt fascinating but unreal man or woman who went by the name of their ideal.

WEALTH FROM WRECKAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 April 1914
- WEALTH FROM WRECKAGE. Does anybody want to get rich in a hurry? If .so, here is a recipe-'buy wrecks. A beach boat which cost about £200 to build was, after it had been run down off Yarmouth, sold for £2, and even that was obtained with difficulty, as seafarers do not like a boat which has once met with misfortune. Still a finer bargain for somebody was a schooner which ran ashore at Southport. It was actually sold ['or £11 Another splendid "deal" was made by a speculator who bought a wreck on the South Coast. lie obtained from it nearly eighty tons of copper fittings and sheathing. This alone re turned him his money several times over, nn.i yet he still had many tons of iron, linings, rope, etc., besides a large quaii'.ity of copper sheathing out of sight. Tin.', success of such transactions ob viously depends on the ability to find a market for everything. And this is precisely -where the specialists shine. Two purchases of a well-known dealer Mn wreckage and "waste" generally -...

TWENTY-FIFTH OPERATION. At Yuma, Michigan, a young man named Fred Maybury recently under went his twenty-fifth surgical opera tion. He is only twenty-four years of age, and the operations have all been performed within the last ten years. He has had one leg, one hand, one eye, the appendix, and arm bones removed. It was thought at first that Maybury Tield the record, but inquiry reveals ?his as an ordinary case by comparison In Chicago, during the years 1906 to 1910, a man named Peter Halliday was operated on thirty-two times. He had both arms, both legs, one ear, his nose, his appendix, one kidney, and :a portion of his skull removed. He ' was in three railroad smash-ups, and Tthen contracted cancer. Through it all he preserved an imperturable nerve. He took the prospect of losing his ?eyes as a blessing. "J won't be able to see what a hulk .1 am," he told the doctors. And this remarkable case is surpass by thatv-of Matthew Sillcox, of St. .Louis. He had both legs and arms re moved...
THE DEADS CARE FOR THE LIVING SOUL. A Strange Story With a Strange Sequel. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 April 1914
THE DEADS CARE FOR THE LIVING SOUL. A Strange Story With a Strange Sequel. A st. ran go ghost story, in which the principals arc said to bo people of the hi.5-'ho si. social position, is, according Io the "Express," engaging the atten tion of London society. A Kensington vicar was leaving the church after choir practice when a lady stepped out of tiio aisle and ask ed him in agitated tones to come with her at once to an address near by. "A gentleman is dying there," she .?.aid. "lie is extremely concerned | ;ibou. liie state of his soul and anx i ions to ho you uofore he dies." The clergyman followed her to a walling taxi-cab, and ;i .short, drive round the corner brcught them to a mansion. Tin1 lady, who seemed to ; be extremely agitat-ii, urged the vicar I to hurry. Me sprang out of the cab, rang the hell, and a butler appeared. "Does Mr. live here?" "Yes, sir." "I hear he is seriously ill ami has sent for me." The butler seemed astouished al most beyond words. He expostulated tha...
DO WE LIVE LONGER? [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 April 1914
DO WE LIVE LONGER? It is generally maintained that we live longer than the ancients did. But researches among the tomba o£ Ro man times in Italy and Spain are far from proving this. There was certainly a larger infant mortality, but the expectation of life between fifty and sixty in ancient Rome was equal to our own, and after sixty the Romans had the advantage. Soldiers, in particular, lived to an extreme old age, in some cases reach ing 100 years. The longevity of the Romans was due to a high infant mortality. Only the fit survive By taking great care of the young we have reduced thi.' mortality, 'but at the same time we have not added to the average length of life. This is not difficult to under stand, for if the weakly and the deli cate survive childhood, they do not as a rule live to old age. A high rate of infant mortality means, in fact, a low death-rate after sixty, and vice-versa. The ancient Roman had a less chance of living to twenty, but if he survived he had ft greater ...
A Lincoln Story. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 April 1914
Lincoln Story. On one occasion when .he was busy, President Lincoln received a delega tion of men who were endeavoring to hurry the passing of some petty Bill. When they entered, Lincoln looked up gravely and said: "If you call the tail of a sheep a leg, how many legs will the sheep have?" "Five!" .said the spokesman. "No," replied Lincoln, "it would only .have four; calling the tail a leg wouldn't make i* one." The delegation departed in discom fiture, and Lincoln was left alone.
AUSTRALIAN EUCALYPTUS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 April 1914
AUSTRALIAN EUCALYPTUS. The Australian eucalyptus, or, as it. ! is commonly called, the gum tree, has a world-wide reputation. It has been grown successfully in many countries, and in New Zealand it has been found that its growth is, in favorable spots, faster than in Australia. In Brazil, in which country the eucalyp tus was first introduced a quarter of a century ago, the authorities have ciime to recognise its intrinsic value for timber. Some ten years ago the J systematic culture of the tree was be- i gun, and recently Senhor Andrade, J Chief of the Forest Service in Brazil, | came to Australia to secure further varieties, and to consult with Mr. Maiden, Director of the Sydney Bo tanic Gardens, who is regarded as the chief authority on eucalypti. The Gov ernment of Brazil desires to cultivate the tree for the sake of the timber, which is eminently suitable for rail way sleepers and also for fuel for railway locomotives. Even in Austra lia it has been found necessary to re sort to...
NO GOOD FOR BALDHEADED MEN [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 April 1914
NO GOOD FOR BALDHEADED MEN Fur many years JOuropoans strove in vain to master the art of a curtain kind of painting executed by the Chinese. It was a comparatively easy matter to obtain the materials, viz., the brushes, paints and the particular kind of paper used-but there the matter ended. They failed to get the paper to "take" the paints. Persuasion and bribes alike failed to extract from the wily Oriental the secret of applying the colors, and for years the art remained the knowledge of the Chinese. It fell to the lot of a young Hnglish bank-clerk to discover the secret. One day-unknown to the artists he was watching them at work. He ! was struck by the fact that each i time before dipping the brush into the paints, they rubbed It through their hair vigorously a few times}. lie procured the necessary mater ials and tried to put the colors on, in the ordinary way of course, without success. Me then cleaned the brush, rubbed it through his hair a few times and .again essayed the e...
HOOPS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 April 1914
HOOPS. With the arrival of the hoop season, Jessie Pope sends rue the following: - When you're walking good as gold Down the now suburban street, "Where the villas to be sold Are inordinately neat, When you're musing with dejection j On the latest by-election, ! Or brooding over business which is | wearing rather thin, If there comes a savage clanking And a swift metallic spanking And a bounding loop of iron barks a segment of your shin i'ray accept the situation With submissive resignation Hoops are in! When you're driving in your car With the luggage up behind, And a week-end free and far In the forefront of your mind If a maiden small and sporting Sends a wooden sphere cavorting In the middle of the roadway with an oscillating spin, And all blue-eyed and seraphic Marks the panic of the traffic And the progress of her plaything with l appreciative grin Prithee check your malediction: 'Tis a time-honored affliction: Hoops are in! -London "Opinion.,,

No Regrets. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 April 1914
No Regrets. "Yes," said the retired insurance .agent, "I once got a man to take out a £10,000 life policy only the day before he was killed, and it took a lot of coaxing to do it." "I expect yon wished your persuas ive powers had not been so success ful!" "Well, hardly. You see, I married the widow." At Eye, Suffolk, not a single sum mons against a ratepayer has been issued for twenty-three years. At Eye "owe yous" are unknown. It is sad to reflect that there would be a great deal more wickedness if some people had more nerve.

CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 April 1914
CHAPTER II. Mrs. Dale, widow of the late George Dale, lived with her only ehihl in a tiny villa in South Kensington. liiven the smallest villars are expensive in that part of the world. She was a slight, pale woman with light blue eyes and a faintly aquiline nose. In appearance she was the essential of grace, 'but no one could call Margaret. Dale beautiful. A little boy with hearty lungs was crying lustily in his own special nur sery. His name was Ralph, and his n.other, at least, thought him the most beautiful creature in the world. Mrs. Dale had been a widow now for over two years, and it certainly did coine into her head and also into her heart time and again that another husband would not be entirely amiss. She was very poor, very poor in deed, and did not like poverty. She was considered by her nelgh-bors to be an exceedingly attractive woman. «he was still young, and when, some time ago, she ha-' met Peter Bellairs at an evening entertainment, she had found the handsome, dark-...
