Cast ing his eye around' the room lie fixed on Private Murphy as his first victim. "Private Murphy," lie asked, "why should a soldier be ready' to die for his ■country?" The Irishman scratched his head for a while; then an ingratiat ing and enlightening smile flitted across his face. "Sure, captain," ho said, pleasantly, "you're quite, right.

A STORY AT BEDTIME. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 18 June 1914
A STORY AT BEDTIME. "Please tell us a story," children so often request, and it is often hard to think of one on demand. But a little practise makes it easy, and a happy set of children are soon absorbed in a simple narration of events and give an attention that is flattering. For little children regular stories with a plot are not necessary; a simple story fui of.details will fill their minds with a series of pictures. It may be only a story of a little girl going on an errand for her. mother, but give her a name and say'she had 011 a nice, clean, blue dress. Then, in his walk she can see a number of pleasant things and per haps meet another little girl; thus you can go 011 telling of tilings as they come into the mind or are suggested by the children themselves. The scenes and incidents should be such as they are familiar with and can understand. Some simple, unexciting stories are a good preparation for bedtime.
GOOD FORM. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 18 June 1914
GOOD FORM. Young people frequently become most embarrassed when tliey suddenly realise that 011 the street, in a public conveyance, at (the theatre, the restaur ant or church, they have done some trilling thing to make themselves' con spicuous. Here are a -few simple rules which the uninitiated will do u'ell to memorise:—7 When a. young man meets one or more girls on the street car by accident lie does not offer to pay (their fare. That is his privilege only when he is their escort for the trip. Girls in business are ofte^v joined at lunch by young men employed in the same offices. Under these circumstan ces there need be • no embarrassment over the check. The girl pays her own bill precisely as if the man had not appeared on the scene. When escorting a girl to the thea tre, churoli or restaurant the man must first ascertain 'whether there is an usher, or head waiter at the door. If there is, he permits the girl /to enter first, holding the door open for her. The usher or waiter lea...
HYPNOTIC CATS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 18 June 1914
HYPNOTIC CATS. Treading on a cobra sitting up ready to strike, a resident in India, whose ex periences are related in the. "Field," wosdered why the deadly fangs •were delayed. Looking round, he noticed his cat crouehing and gazing at the reptile steadily with mesmeric effect, for .the snake seemed unable to move, and while in this condition he killed it. Another time, when sleeping in an open, cot in the verandah, he woke to find on one side of the bed a huge cobra with head erect ready to strike, on the other the glistening green eyes of his cat, The snake remained quite still, so he ran into the room to fetch a gun, and, coming back, poked the reptile's head with the barrels; but it did not take the slightest notice, and i seemed like a stuffed and lifeless crea ture. He then placed his hand in front of the cat's eyes by way of experiment, when immediately the spell was remov ed, the cobra raised itself, hissed, and assumed an offensive attitude. Jle then took his hand away and t...
HIS ORDEAL. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 18 June 1914
HIS ORDEAL Judkins paced the floor. His brow was wrinkled and pale. There was an anxious look in liis eyes Evidently there was something cn .Judkins's mind. Presently he spoke. "Yes, ib must be done! It is a dreadful alternative, but I can see no other course ito> pursue." Ever and anon he rolled his eyes ap ward, and raised his clenched hands to wards, the osiling in an attitude of su preme and utter despair. The struggle was a long and bitter one. Bravely lie strove for the mastery over .the black demons of despondency that surrounded him; but in vain were his efforts. ' Inch by inch, foot by foot, they pressed upon him, and, in spite of pluck and will-power, his' hitherto indomit able spirit was slowly but surely crowd ed to.the wall, and' finally forced to surrender. . "Yes," he' repeated, despairingly, "it: must be done 1 There* , is no other way 1" And then, grabbing his hat, he rush ed frantically from the room.

WOMEN'S INTERESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 25 June 1914
WOMEN'S INTERESTS. (Bj' "Ambrosiiie.") One of the latest fads among fashion able women is to have their backs—not backs made shapely and picturesque by means of silks and laces and guinea corsets—but the natural back, from the waist to the shoulders, photographed. Two or three years ago the ladies of Paris got tired of having their faces photographed. They took their shoes and stockings off, and had their feet and ankles snapped by the man with the camera. A few ladies, more daring than the rest, had their limbs repro duced on sensitised paper, and mount ed on fancy cards. Coloured hair is one of the fads which certain sections of society af fect. Rules laid down by experts de clare that green hair is suitable for brunettes, mauve is just the' thing for blondes, rose-coloured hair may be safe ly worn by brunettes, as also magenta coloured, but pink, purple and yellow should never be dreamed of except bjr fair women. It may be added that the hair in these instances is not dyed, wigs ...
THE BRITISH SUBJECT. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 25 June 1914
THE BRITISH SUBJECT. It is dangerous to talk politics m Russia—rery dangerous indeed—dan gerous for high and .low alike. Ginger Jim, of course, must be classeu among the low—his name suggests as much and his appearance eonnrmed the suggestion. iNowadays Ho keeps a very respeotable public house, in the oosy bar parlour of whicn he sometimes tdils this story; and tne telling of it brings him a good deal of custom.

HOMELY SENSE. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 25 June 1914
I HOMELY SENSE. Bettor have one good cow than twc Ecrubs. Why not try to raise the best boy and girl farmers in the neighbor hood, instead of the most useless ones. It is better to be poor and well, than rich and ill. Yesterday is hopeless; to-day is better than to-morrow. A wise man never boasts of his wisdom. He wouldn't be wise if he did. Never sell an animal that loves; you or the family, bo it horse, colt or1 oow. Better give the money to the man: and feed dealer than to the cattle ■ doctor. Teach the boys and girls to read: aloud, and let them read something interesting aloud every night. _ To some men time and a sixpenny buckle or latch are of small value until after tho catastrophe! When, you go away for a day don't, leave the hired men so many jobs to do that he will forget half of them. It isn't what you haul to market that makes old age easy; it is the amount of pennies you carry to the bank. Feeding the dog sour bread_ is sure to make him sick; and feeding hor ses moldy ...

HORSE TALK. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 25 June 1914

DESTRUCTION OF CHARLOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 25 June 1914
i DESTRUCTION OF-CHARCD'ck! The seeds of charlock or wild mus tard can lie dormant for, many years in the soil, and then the plant sud denly appears, when the©land is brought under cultivation. In a root crop the weed can be kept down by hoeing or other mechanical means, but in a cereal crop this is practical ly impossible, with the result that the weeds produce a fresh supply of seed which is shed and returned to the soil. Some years a go a Frenchman discovered that charlock could be de stroyed by spraying with solution of copper sulphate (blue-stone) without damage to the cereal crop growing along with it. Experiments were con ducted in different countries as to the best strength of spray to use, the best quantity, and the time to an ply it. Practical advice is given to farmers in Leaflet 63, issued by the Board of Agriculture, London. Good results will usually be got from 16 lbs., of copper sulphate, costing 4/6, 60 lbs. of iron sulphate, costing 2/6, may be used. The quantities ...
