MOST HISTORIC JEWEL IN THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 11 July 1912
MOST UISTORIC JEWEL IN THIS WORLD. As it stands, the Imperial State crown has no particular connection with India; but that is not the case in regard to that of the Queen, for in the centre of her Majesty's-crown gleams the Koh-i-noor (" Mountain of ULght ") perhaps the most- histor ic Jewel in the world. It has been in the possession of Nadir Shah, of ShahShuja, and of Runilt Singh, the "Lion of the Punjaub," and, from the time tUtat it figured in the tren sures of Aurungzeb till Lord Dal housie obtained it on the suppres sion of Dhulep Singh, and presented it to Queen Victoria in 1850, its story has been one long romance. Around the Koh-i-noor grew up a mass of legend and supertititon, but one curious belief that is widely aneecredited In, is that it oneve brings ill-fortune to a woman who wears it. Its traditions in regard to men are less happy, and when thinking of having it placed in the crown that he would assume, he w~a earnestly asked not to do so, but to let it appear in Qu...

One of the most Important persons in the Royal servants' hall is the Clerk of the Kitchen. who enjoys the not Inconsiderable salary of £700 a year and his board, the latter being, of course, the best of everything In sea son. He is assisted in his doubtless arduous task .by no fewer than four seb-clerks, whose duties are to keep accounts, sendonut orders, and check bills. But this does not complete the Clerk of the Kitchen's bodyguard. He is ex. pressly allowed "a necessary woman" (a quaint phrase)` as another assist ant. Besides the Clerk of the Kitchen at the Royal palace, there are a host of other exalted functionaries. First and foremost comes the Head Cook, polite. ly called the "Chet."

NO OLD MAIDS IN RUSSIA. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 11 July 1912
..NO OLD MAIDS IN.RUSSIA. The idea is still allowed to prevail In Russia that single life is a\disgrace to women,.for there are no old maids except in the religious orders. If the parents cannot arrange a marriage for the daughter she makes a journey, and is thus lost to the gos* siping community. Soon reports are circulated.of her marriage to a foreign' or. Lerng absence brings -forgetfulness, so that when the story is told of the death of the foreign-husband in a strange land there are few who care to inquire further. Indeed, it is -a breach of etiquette to suggest doubts .under such clrcumstances, and the woman finally returns as a broken. hearted widow. She has met the conditions of the country, and, she is no longer a single personin society. Thus the fiction of "no'unmarried women" is preserved in the domain of the Tsar.

HERE AND THERE. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 11 July 1912
HERE AND THERE. [By Johnnie Walker] &nbsp; What has Williamstown done to usurp the place, held for so many years by Footscray ? It is said that Footscray and its attar of roses is sometimes mentioned in London music halls. Toorak on the one hand and Footscray on the other, marked the high and low water works of Melbourne. But the "Wangaratta Chronicle," in a lead- &nbsp; ing article against the "Age" and its advocacy of the three Liberal candidates, writes of an apprecia- &nbsp; tive grin from Toorak to Williams- town. Surely Footscray would not remain silent at being thus ruth- lesaly thrust aside! -But perhaps &nbsp; Footscray is recognized as an "Age" centre and the "Wangar- &nbsp; &nbsp; ratta Chronicle," which takes its politics from the "Argus," thought it well to make a change. But it ##### better for the Liberal &nbsp; &nbsp; cause if the "Chronicle" either &nbsp; adopted the Labor platform or left &...

(ALL RIGHTS RESJIRVED.) 4VAN DE VEER, -4---- THE DIAMOND MERCHANT. PART 6. CHAPTER XII. - Ti-Il SELLING OF AN INFANT. Ulgitha, elated with what she cal led her good fortune, rushed into the inn of the Iron Hand, and a moment after halted at the open door- of Lady Van do Veer's room. The rude iron lamp, burning on the worm-eaten table near the bed, shed its rays clearly upon the unfor tunate lady and her babe. Lady Van de Veer slept, or rather her senses were plunged In a stupor produced by the vile herbal de coctions Ulgithea" lid administered from time to time. The babe, too, slept, and Ulgitha easily lifted it without arousing it. if Ulgitha felt any passing twinge of remorse as she thus rubbed a mother of a babe, it was but as a feeble flash through her brain, of which her heart was hardly conscious in here wicked joy of anticipated re " She'll grieve after it, 'of course" she thought; " but she'll think it died so young, and went straight from all the cares and ills of life.

ON LAZINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 18 July 1912
'ON LAZINESS. Dr. Charles A. Eaton said in the course of an after-dinner speech in Cleveland : " Laziness is responsible for too nluch of the misery we see arollund us. It is all very well to blaie at cohol for this misery, to blamle op pression and injustice; but to what heights, must we not all have climb ed but for our laziness 7" He paused and smiled.

Make it run hereafter, " The carriage waits my lord." ' " Thesauper preosod his halid to his brow. " 'More study I More study i' he groaned."
