IN LESS THAN NO TIME. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 30 October 1914
IN LESS THAN NO TIME. The market house clock was stopped for repairs, and the wholesale fish dealers thought to have a lark out ot "Silly Geordie," who was standing near. Calling him to them, they challenged him to run round the mar ket buildings in one minute. The challenge was accepted. Geordio toed the line, and they pointed the time to him, just three minutes past, and on the word being given he set off. On airiving back they all looked up at the clock, which, of course, still pointed three past, and said, as if in surprise: "Why. Geordie, yo'l have done it in no tie.'' "Aye, so Aa heyv,' replied Geordie, "an' if Aa haddent stopped roond the corner to tie ma buvt lace, As oould hey done it in loIs!"
TURF TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 30 October 1914
TURF TOPICS. (By "Flemington.") Now that we are in sight of "the day," it can with assurance be said that the troublous times being at present experienced will not "''knock the bottom out of the Melbourne Cup" to use the language of pessimists who aired the prediction when it was found that Bri tain would be involved in the war. True, we cannot in reason expect that the great racing carnival at Fleming ton will be quite as big a thing as usual, but it is certainly not going to be a failure by any means. So far the Derby situation remains unchanged. In connection with the classic three-year-old event people are still thinking of Woorak and Mountain Knight to the exclusion of all other can didates. Naxbery, one of those likely to oppose the Sydney cracks, next Sat urday, did all that was asked of him at Sadnown last week in good style, but the form, though indicating that the Positano colt is now himself again. was scarcely of the quality to entitle him to mention in the same breath a...
THE MASTER PASSION. CHAPTER XXIII. "AN ANGEL OR" [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 30 October 1914
THE MASTER PASSION. CHAPTER XXIII. "AN ANGEL OR - "I have written my' answer, and::I' will sond no other," said Ida haughti ly, pointing to a square envelope on the mantelpiece, directed to Mrs. Saloe mons. "Look here,-Ida," said Duval' reso lutely, "you worry about every duty except your own. Instead of keeping your marriage-vows, you treat me like a dog. Do you think I have'no eyes to seen, no sense to guess? You were flirt ing with Beresford when I came in, and you can't deny it." "I can from the bottom of my heart. Do you know what I" was saying? That I wished he were a woman that I might treat him like -a sister." "A capital lead up to something ten. der. Be honest, and at least ILrespect you. As it is, I am beginning to despise you." "You shall never do that. You shall see that I am different to other women of the world.- Take me back into soci ety, place me in the midst of tempta tion and you shall confess that I know how to resist it. I should think it a disgrace, not. an ho...

FOR WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 30 October 1914
'FOR WOMEN -4-- (By "A znbrosine.") It is interesting to the many women in Victoria who are now actively en gaged in the work of the newly-estab lished Red Cross Societies that the Bri tish Red Cross Society has shown rapid and splendid development in the last year, and is now fully prepared to carry out the work for which it was formed. Originally Red Cross Societies were only used in foreign service, but its scope his widehed,-;and now the Soci-. ety has two definite branches of work. The ohe is to be an auxiliary force to the Territorial Army, and the other the sending relief to foreign countries in the event of war. They would fill in the communicating lines in home de fence between the "front" and the base hospitals. It is said :with full assurance that the Army authorities have made arrangements to provide plenty of people, fully skilled in nurs ing, to go with aney expeditionary force that may be sent abroad. But these nurses must, of course, move with the Army wherever the b...
BILL THE ORATOR [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 30 October 1914
BILL THE ORATOR. Many years ago Champ Clark was president of a little college m Ken tucky. He worked his way through the school, and finally became 'its head. In the school with him were three red-headed boys of the Mosely family. Thirty years afterward, at Lawton, in Oklahama, Clark was waiting at the hotel for a c6mmittee that was to escort him to a meeting. A tall man, with a red beard and a plug hat, came up to him and put forth his hand. "You don't know me, Mr. Speaker!' he said triumphantly. Clark looked up from his chair, vat he did not get up. "It's a mean advantage,"' he said, "after thirty years, to make me tell you right away which one of the three Mosely boys you are." The man, was astonished-so mfoh so that he took off his hat. "You're Bill," said the Speaker. "How did you know?" asked Bill. "By the motion you made when you took off your hat. You were the one who thought he'd be an orator." "That's right," said Bill. . "And what are you doing, Bill?". asked the Speaker....

THE COSSACKS.: (By W. H. P. "larsdon.): "The ravens can devour;- the. Cos sacks.'? So ran':a-recently received cablegram. ; It was the i'eply given by a German officer to a request that' permission, niight be 'given to bury those killed during a frontier fight. The Words are: expressive of deep hat red commixed with a vienr of strong contempt. Much misconception exists as to whom the Cossacks really are. In -general, an idea prevails that they are a" rage, if hot of pariahs or thugs, theii at least a, horde of hireling mar auders . Each of which conclusions is very far from -the case. Succinctly put, they are a warlike, pastoral people, skilful as horsemen, inhabiting 'different parts of the Rus sian Empire, to the armies of wnicn they furnish valuable contingents of irregular cavalry: They are fred pea. sants, proud of their ancestry and of the name of Cossack.
