DEFINITION OF A WORKER. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 17 April 1914
DEFINITION OF A WORKER. The definition includes nearly every person who is an employe. It does not include the clerk who is receiving more than £250 per annum, ho ever, but it does include the man working as a bricklayer, if .e is receiving mre than that amount. All persons who are en gaged in manual labor will bi covered by the act, because the risk they under go of accident is far greater than that of the man who does no manual work. In addition to the clerk earning over £250 per annum, the only other persons who will not be provided for under the act will be the casual laborer who is en gaged for any work outside his employ ers' business. It would be very difficult to include such persons; For instance, a man whom a person engaged to carry his bag from a railway station, or a stray gardener who is given a small job, tidying up a garden, will be excTuded from its benefits. The domestic servant, however, will be covered, and also all clerks i, receipt of £250 or under per annum. If...

Terribly Tempted. A SERIAL STORY BY ANNABEL GRAY. CHAPTER XII. ANTICIPATION. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 17 April 1914
Tempted.. A SERALR STOliY BY CHAPTER XII. ANTICIPATiON. "No chorcher qu'un regard . . Her soul." To beat its wings at hope's vain goal." Leonard came at last to her, after a few days' separation. He longed to see her. it might be but a short lived passion with him; but while it lasted: it was a very ardent one. "M?ie love strongest, women long est,"' says the proverbO , and now eartv seemed again transfigured. This separation had but fanned the mutual flame; so different, was it from the irrevocable parting, the deliberate banishment that thrusts a woman away into darkness for ever-the parting that is pitiless as death and as cold, with sill its terror, and none of its wilderness and the soul shrivelled up as a scroll. Ho arrived late one evening at Wil ton-place, and alter a very kindly greeting, Mrs. Desart good-naturedly gathered up her crewels, leaving himi and Lenore alone. "'You will soon be my darling wife," lie whispered. "You have east a spell ovqr me." He calue prepared fo...
Dropped the Subject. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 17 April 1914
Dropped the Subject. " Two thousand poundso for a dog!" he exclaimed as he looked up from his newspaper. " Do you believe any one ever paid any such price, Maria ?" " I'm sure I don't know, James," she returned, without stopping her needle work even for a moment. "Does the paper say that much was paid ?" " Yes; there's an article on valuablc dogs, and it speaks of one that was sold for two thousand pounds. I don't be lieve it." " It may be true, James." she said quietly. " Some of those thoroughbred animals bring fancy prices, and there's no particular reason why the paper should lie about it !" " T know that, Maria, hut just think of it-just try to grasp the magnTitude of that sum in your weak, femlniff. mind. .You don't seem to realise it. FTwo thousand pounds for a dog ! Why, hang it. Maria, that's more than I am worth !" " I know It, James, but some are worth more than others." She went calmly on with her sewing, while he fumed and splutered for a. noment, and then dropped the f...

The Jew Was Pleased. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 17 April 1914
The Jew Was Pleased. An old Jew pedlar, with his pack on his shoulder, was toiling slowly along a London street the other day, when a loud shout of "HIi" arrested his steps. The cry proceeded from the lips of a woman who was .frantically waving her hand to him from a fourth-story window of some "models" close by, "Vant me?" shouted the Jew. "Yes," shouted the woman back again. "Come up here, mister." Customers had been very scarce that day; so, in spite of his weariness, the Israelite toiled up iThe many stone steps leading to the woman's rooms, hopeful of doing a good stroke of business with her. When he at last reached the landing of the fourth story, the woman emerged from one of the rooms, holdingl a howl ing youngster by the ear. "Mister," she said, tersely, "I've jus£ called you up to Tommy. If ke'ag naughty boy, won't you put him l? your: bag?" r - --? M?'l g H Jill
MOLLY [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 17 April 1914
MOLLY (By "Vanitas.") Molly stood at the slip-rails, a. slim. lithe figure of a girl, the wind blowing strands of her unruly hair aoross her face. She shaded her eyes with hex hand, and looked expectantly along th&lt; road. "Father ought-to bb here by now,' she murmured. "I wonder what ni keeping him " Molly's father hadl gone to Melbourti to secure the services of a much needed help. The last one, a drunken, idle fellow, whose idea of work had not co incided with that of the farmer's', hle left a fortnight previously, and' no looa. aid being available, Mr. Watson de cided to try some of the city agencies. Molly was putting up the slip-rail reluctantly, before going back to tih house, when she noticed a cow tryiag: to destroy her trim pittosporum hedge. "Shoo!" she cried, clapping lnex hands. The cow stopped her depreda tions, and turned' two mild bovine eyes towards the girl, but, thinking probab ly that no danger lurked in that quar ter, she commenced her ravages upon the ...
