SEND OFF TO MR W. HALL AN ENTHUSIASTIC GATHERING. PRESENTATIONS BY THE PUBLIC AND THE TUNGAMAH FIRE BRIGADE. There have been two or three notable poblio leave-takings of esteemed resi dents of late; none of which, however, was carried out with greater ocl&t than the social tendered on Wednesday evening, 15th inBt., to Mr Win, Hall. It ia only a few weeks ago that Mtb Hall waa entertained by a section of the community, the fountain-head of which waa the Tungamah Croquet Olab. That lady is now, with her family, a resident of Albert Park (Melbourne), whither her huabindgoes to join her in the course of a few days. Daring his career of thirty years in thpse parte, Mr Hall had so ingratiated himself with the individual members of the community-from the grey bearded patriarch to the tiny toddler that he hid become invested with the mantle of the people. He waa looked upon by many as their guide, philoso pher, and friend, and his winning personality-more especially his readi ness t...

Probably no one is more impressed with the changes which take place in a community from time to tima than the periodical resident. After an ab sence of twelve or eighteen months ho returns to a townBhip to find that the hand of grey-bearded Time, locked in that of the gra-it leveller, Daath, haa been ruthlessly engaged.

A CURIOUS PROCESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 23 April 1914
A CURIOUS PROCESSION. Iu the deep pine forests of Norway the wood-cutters sometimes find a serpentine object, fifty feet long, crawling slowly over the ground. If they did not know that it was mado up of millions of little worms, they might be frightened by its peculiar appearance. These worms, called the sciara, gather during July and August in large Humberts, preparatory to migrat ing in search of food or lor change of condition. When setting out on this journey, they stick themselves to gether and form a huge serpentine mass, often reaching a length of be tween forty and fifty feet and several Inches in thickness. As the sciara is only 011 an average about three thirty-seconds of an inch in length, and barely wider than a flue needle, the number required to compose a line of the size above men tioned is enormous. Their pace Is very slow, and upon meeting an obstacle, such as a stick or stone, they will either writhe over or around it, sometimes breaking into bodies for this purpo...
A GREAT ENGINEERING WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 23 April 1914
GREAT ENGINEERING WORK. Tho completion of the Los Angeles aqueduct, says the '"Scientific Ameri can," marks the successful ending of an arduous struggle with nature in its most rugged aspects of mountain and desert, and with powerful and subtle private interests for the pos session of a priceless supply of water. The ten aqueducts of ancient Home were marvels of engineering skill and durability; but their construction stretched over a period of five cen turies, against the eight years that have elapsed since the Los Angeles aqueduct was iirst proposed, and the length and dimensions of the ancient Roman aqueducts bear no comparison with that of modern LOB Angeles. The longest of the Roman aqueducts was 62 miles, while the Los Angeles aque duct is 254 miles in length, from the rntake on Owens River to tho city limits of Los Angeles. The irrigation aqueducts of the Inca Indians of an cient Peru, one of which was 3C0 miles long, are among the wonders of the world, especially so when it ...
PARIS—A SYNONYM OF YOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 23 April 1914
PARIS-A SYNONYM OF YOUTH. Paris when your skies are graying, how many of us know you? Do we know your Rue du Pont Neuf, with i s silent melodrama under the dawning heavens-or do we kuow only the farce of your Montmartre? Do we see the laughter in dancing eyes in the Rue Alouffeturd-or. in the revel of your Saturday night, do we see only the belladonna'd leer of tho drabs In the Place Pigalle? Do we know the romance of your peoples-or thfi ro mance of your restaurateurs? Which? I wonder. Paris has changed. It isn't the Paris of other (lavs, you say; and Paquer ette, little Faster daisy, little flower of France-little Paquerette is dead. And you are old now and married, and there an- the children to look out for-they're at the school age - and life's quondam melody is full of rests and skies are not always as blue as once they were. And Paris, fcur thousand miles beyond tho seas Paris isn't what it used to be! But Paris is. For Paris is no» a city-it is Youth. And Youth never dies. To...
WINTER IN ARCADY. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 23 April 1914
WINTER IN ARCADY. Is it mouths or years, dear Kitty. Since we left the murky city, (The raiu is wanly dripping through the plaster in the hall). And our waud'ring footsteps rested In the shade of this sequestered Little cottage with the Jasmine cling ing coyly to the wall? ..When we found this haveu, dearie, Wo were pleasure-cloyed and weary, (The wind is softly sobbing through the panels and the I considered it rheumatic; Hut succumbed to your ecstatic Approbation of the streamlet at the bottom of the path. There like Rosalind ir. Ardcu You disported in the garden Till the sunset crowned the willows with its golden aftermath; And we watched the aspens quiver. Yes, I felt the timbers shiver; ('Tis the Buminer-house a-cruielug up and down the garden path.) How we dallied with the hourts 'Neath a canopy of flowers (Another prize chrysanthemum's gone crashing "by the heam). But these sylvan joys are fading And to-morrow we'll be wading To the city through the pathway at the bottom of t...
WEALTH FROM WRECKAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 23 April 1914
WEALTH FROM WRECKAGE. Does auybody want to get rich in a hurry? If BO, 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 seafari rs do not like a boat which has once mot with misfortune. Still a finer bargain for somebody was a schooner which ran ashore at Southport. It was actually sold for £1! Another splendid "deal" was made by a speculator who bought a wreck on the South Coast. He obtained from it nearly eighty tons of copper fittings and sheathing. This alone re turned him his money several times over, and yet he still had many tons of iron, fittings, rope, etc., besides a largo quantity of copper sheathing out of sight. The 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 in wreckage and "waste" generally consisted of...
OLD POETS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 23 April 1914
OLD POET8. If I should live in a for oat And sleep underneath a tree, No grove of whispering saplings Would make a home for me. I'd go where the old oaks gather, Serene and Rood and strong, And they would not sigh ami tremble And vex me with a song. The pleasantest sort of poet la the poet who's old and wise, With an old white beard, and wrinkles About his kind old eyes. For these young flibbertigibbets A-rhyming their hours away, They won't be still like honest men And listen to what you say. The young poet screams forever About his sex and his soul, But the old man listens and smokes his pipe And polishes Its bowl. There should be a club for poets Who have come to seventy year. They should sit In a great hall, drink ing. Red wine and golden beer. They would shuffle in of an evening, Each one to his cushioned- seat, And there would be mellow talking And silence rich and sweet. There Is no peace to be taken With poets who are young, For they worry about the wars to be fought And the...

"is that you, Peter?" The eyes of Paul Danvers were raised with difficulty, his breath was coming fast, lie looked through the dim shadow of death at Peter Bel lairs, the friend of his life. "You have come. You are good," said Paul, and he smiled faintly as lie moved one very thin hand until it touched the hand, Arm, brown and strong, of his comrade. "I was the lucky one, in one sense," he added after a pause. "We . both made up our minds to be rich, but somehow I got the gold and-you?" "I am a poor man still," answered 1'f'ter Bellairs. "Well, never mind, never mind," said Paul. "You are not dying in your youth and I am. I have made my pile. The diamond fields at Kimber !py. you understand; I was in at the rush, and I have left some of the money in trust to you for Sheila, my little girl. Sheila ...
More Noise Than Work. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 23 April 1914
More Noise Than Work. "My dear, look there," said Mr. Sim Kins', as he stood on dock with Ills wife and pointed to a tug drawing several barges. "Such Is life the tug Is like the man, working and tolling, whilo the barges, Ilka women, are-" "1 know," interrupted Mrs. 8., acrid ly, "the tug does nil the blowing while the barges bear the burden."
CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 23 April 1914
CHAPTER III. Before Peter Bellairs "left Bloexu fontein lie had a Jong interview with the lawyers, Messrs. Krux and Kru ger. They gave liim a copy of part of the will, which satisfied him that his friend 1 ad dealt fairly by him. / the rest of the money, which. Paul Danvers called his pile, was secured for the maintenance of Sheila. It was lo bo hers without let or hindrance. It was to be hers if she married even at seventeen, and it was to he hers if at the age of twenty-one she were still unmarried. But the sum of Paul Danvers' wealth was not mentioned. Peter ask ed .Air. Kruger what it amounted to, and to his astonishment was told that this was a secret which would not be revealed until the money was band ed over to the young heiress. All Kruger would permit himself to say was this: "It is a large sum-a very large sum, but I am not allowed to mention the amount. That was one of my client's strictest injunctions. You may take it for granted, however, Air. Bella'.rs, that your litt...
CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 23 April 1914
CHAPTER II. Mrs.- Dale, widow of the late George Dale, lived with her only child in a tiny villa in South Kensington. Even 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, tout no one could call JIargaret Dale beautiful. A little boy with hearty lungs was crying lustily in his own special nur sery. His name was ltalpli, and his mother, 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 come 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 neighbors to be an exceedingly attractive woman, she was still young, and when, some time ago, she ha'l met Peter Bellairs at an evening entertainment, she had found the handsome, dark-e...
THE DRINKING VESSEL. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 23 April 1914
THE DRINKING VESSEL. When birds are entirely confined to scratching-sheds the drinking vessel is often a source of a good deal of trouble and loss of time, for the water gets fouled by the hirds scratch ing litter into it, and a wide area round about the vessel is often mado sodden and offensive by the splash ings. To remove or avoid these evils is a simple matter. Take a half-bar rel, place it upside down in the shed, \nd put the drinking vessel on the 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 the liquor table when so inclined.
THE ART OF DRESSING WELL. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 23 April 1914
THE ART OF DRESSING WEUL. The real arc of dressing well does not lie in slavishly following the fash ion, foui in choosing styles and colors to suit oneself, and in this way em phasising one's best points. A gown, however, simple, should foe chosen with due regard to one's own personality, but to do this it is neces sary to spend more than one can afford. iThe great mistake so many women ii^ke in the matter of dress is in not pausing to consider whether the gown or hat they intend having will suit their own particular style of beauty. Bccause a hat or frock looks well upon your friend it does not follow that il will look equally well on you. Your coloring and figure may be dif ferent, and in that case the same dress cannot suit you equally well. To be well dressed a woman must ibe suitably dressed, and all the ac cessories, which make so great a dif ference to the effect, must be care fully chosen.
