TRAVELLING BY AIRSHIP. "A LOVELY SENSATION." All Australian girl now on a visit to Germany sends an interesting let ter telling of the wonderful progress of aerial navigation: "I must tell you of my latest ad venture. My brother-in-law chartered the Zeppelin airship, ."Victoria Lou ise," and invited fourteen of us for a three hours' flight. So we all went co Hamburg and stayed the nighi there, and early next morning started off to the hall where this gigantic ma chine is stationed. We climbed into her by means of a ladder; then she was guided out of the hall by about.a hundred soldiers, all tugging 011 to her to keep her from rising. When she was clear of the hall they let her go, and off we went at the rate of SO miles per hour from Hamburg to Kiel, to see the opening of the regatta. It was a lovely sensation, and an ideal way of travelling—110 jolting or rat tling as in an express train, and not j that constant sensation of speed and the after result of drumming in the ears as in ...
LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 1 July 1914
LADIES' LETTER. By "Irene," in Melbourne. A quaint but plaintive story comes from one of our suburbs. Two poor school-mistresses found their little -shilling-a-week school was inadequate for bread and rent. . They tried to sell a handsome mantle, relic of a moneyed past. The mother of a pu pil was induced to purchase. Sb.3 named her own tei^ms—time-payment one shilling per week. . The sisters agreed. An extra shilling a week was full of meaning to them. But suddenly the child of this mother stayed away. Days and weeks passed and she did not return. The mother continued payment until the debt was cleared off. Then the shilling for the mantle ceased and the child re turned to school. The child did not lose much. And the poor little school-mistresses, who are not as good at arithmetic as at "accomplish ments" are still pondering over the profit and loss of their transaction. Said Captain Brownlow, R.A.N., . speaking on Empire Day:-"I think girls should have compulsory training as well ...

BILLIARDS. THE LARKIN TOURNAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 8 July 1914
BILLIARDS. THE LARK IN TOURNAMENT. TBy Baulk-Line.! Great interest is being centred in the tournament about to commence at the Moe Hotel. The subject of tournaments lias been much discussed in Moe at different times, but nothing definite was decided upon—chiefly on account of the condition of the table, but now that new cushions have been fitted and other alterations effected, there is no obstacle barring the way to a successful tourna ment. A beautiful cue (in case) is being given by Mrs Larkin, which, in addition to a sweepstake of 2s Gd each, will make the first prize well worth winning. A little compensation for the runner-up, and a gold coin for the highest break, fill the prize list. It will be noticed that four byes ap pear in the first draw. The reason is that, by so arranging the games, the necessity fi.r a bye in the semi-finals will be obviated. The first games will be played this evening (Wednesday), when G Reid (rec. 50) meets W. F.

No anirna^ ii h.ble to withstand them. No beast, however formidable, darei to cross their track, and they will de stroy in a .single nisht all the pigi and fowls on a farm. The huge iguana lizards fall victims to them, as dc snakes and all other reptiles. It is said that they begin their at tack on the snake by biting its eyei and ao blinding the prey, which, in stead of running away, writhes help lessly in one spot. , Natives of Africa assert^ that when the great, python has crushed its cap ^ tive' in its folds, ft "does not devoui 4 It at once, but makes a circuit of a1 least a mile in diameter in order to see tvhether an army of driver ants is on the march in the neighborhood.

TO BE HAPPY WHEN MARRIED. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 8 July 1914
TO BE HAPPY WHEN MARRIED. "Which is 'better to possess in ma trimony—similarity of taste or simil ' arity of temperament?" asks a -writer,' The former, certainly. For it is the trivialities of life that count for hap piness in marriage. The most, suc cessful marriages are made by peo ple of opposite temperaments, who find what they themselves lacK in theij life-partners. The gay coquette gets the homage, and admiration upon which her happl aess depends from a quiet husband, who appreciates in her the vivacity he lacks himself, and vice versa. ■ But the secret " of their happinesa more often than not is based upon the tllGIf HclTIy pill> nuits. For, as a great philosopher once put It: "You can read the classics, by your self. but you must share a joke with someone else."
