GIGANTIC FISH. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 22 May 1914
GIGANTIC FISH. f The year 1913 will long be re membered among' salmon anglers as that in which the biggest salmon caught in a Scottish river for 2S years was landed. The fishj which . was caught in the Tweed towards the end; of the year, sealed "551b. four hours after being landed, and is the heaviest taken from that river since 18S6, when one of 57£lb. .was caught by Mr. Pryor from the Duke of Koxburghe's water. If the recently-landedfish had been weighed immediately after capture, it is estimated that the fisli would have attained close upon 57lb., for the longer such a fish remains out of the water the lighter it becomes. At all events, the Scotch : 55-poun der was the largest rod-killed sal mon of the Tweed since . 1SS(J, al though it-should be pointed out that a salmon weighing _ 5Slb. was also taken in the Alton River, Norway. Anglers tell -many thrilling stories of the struggles they have to land a 401b. or oOlb. salmon, "but it "must be tame sport compared with tuna-fishing ...

A DUELLING ACTOR. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 22 May 1914
A DUELU16 ACTOR. James Quin, who died on Jan uary 21, 1776, was a fine actor, a popular man on the stage, and a popular man in his retirement- at Bath, where ho ruled the social board, even as Beau Nash ruled the ceremonies of the Pump Room. That he was anything but of a peacoablo disposition his duelling record shows. On one occasion, during a performance of "Cato," a slip was made by an actor named Williams", whereupon Quin slipped in an impromptu g-og-line- Williams, greatly upset, waited to intercept Quin as ho went to his lodgings. The latter, speing a drawn sword in the hand of William.-?, promptly drew his own weapon,,and, defending himself coolly against a rash at tack, ran the unfortunate follow through tho body, killing him on the spot. Quiu surrendered himself at once to justice, and the ^act that ho was the person attacked, and that he only defended himself from a man who sought his life, carried suf ficient weight to lead to a verdict of "Manslaughter," which in those d...

Wages in South Africa. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 22 May 1914
Wages in South Africa. South Africa is perpetually faced with the problem of keeping its 170,000 coloured workers in order. The white miners naturally dislike the native labourers, because their presence tends to keep down the rate of wages. &lt; For some time it has been an understood thin,g between masters and men in the Transvaal that na tives should not compete with whites in occupations that demand skilled labour. No black was therefore al lowed to become an engineer, car penter, stonemason, or bricklayer. Gradually the door is being opened, and the Transvaal whites feel that they- will shortly bo forced to work on the samfe footing as the native, just as fellow-whites in the Cape Province already do. At present in tho Transvaal a white miner receives about £1 por day of eight hours, whilst the native gets less than £1 per week, and is made to work more hours. No coloured man is allowed to hold a blasting certificate, although many of them could do tho work as efficient...
ARMY SLANG. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 22 May 1914
ARMY SLANG. There is more slang, among polcliers. than one would find Jit nil the schools in England. Some amusing examples were given by Corporal r. L. King, of the 2nd Life Guards, in the Household Brigade Magazine." A "Tom Clarke" is a swab, and it also a kflss. Ifeiace one may hear a soldier refer to "Tom Clarking his straight, missus." which means kiss ing his protect h e bride. Nobody knows who the original Tom Clake was. "A touch of the Lawrence" means a fit. of laziness. A pennyworth of bread and cheese is k'nown as a "ricner" for some in scrutable reason, and tea is "dirty 'ot.'' Meat, is ".saddle flap." To "put half a gauge on" any thing is to do work for a man for sixpence, wh,*ich imy have some con nection witln the fact, that a half gallon can is kin own as "half a gauge." A man wearing n muflier is- in "burtrlar *>rder." and is upon to the qufstuMi. here are the ferrets Tf aivvnn#' lias an unpleasant sur prise he "drops about, seven* een holes." .Should you agree wi...

Smart Children with Stupid Parents. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 22 May 1914
Smart Children with Stupid Parents. ? The contention of ninny physicians and reformers that feeble-minded par ents should be prohibited from marry ing, because they believe that the off spring of such unions is boiuid to be similarly afflicted, is not always borne out by- facts. Indeed, it. fre quently happens that normal chil dren, who are in no way ?. mentally or physically deficient are born to feeble-minded parents. And this has puzzled not a few physicians and scientists. It would seem, however, according' to Dr. Charles Davenport, a eu genic expert, that the explanation is quite simple. FTo points out that the mentally deficient 'arc not all deficient in the same way. The term "deficient" is not only applied to those who are stupid, owing to lack of brain power, but is often ap plied to criminals of every degree. Thus if a deficient man marries a woman who is deficient, it docs not follow that their deficiencies are of the same nature. 1 ~ The man's deficiency may consist of c...

NATURE'S MONUMENT. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 22 May 1914
W IJ F IHUBW-'MWHJIII'MIWM-CTHFFCIUW W NATURE'S roOftUHENT. It is seldom, perhaps, that Nature erects a monument to a person's . memory ; yet in a small cemetery ! a few miles east of Nashville, in j Brown County, may he found an object hearing that distinction. More than seventy-five years ago a man named Allcorn met. v-ith an accident, which resulted in his death, and he was buried in the cemetery near his home. The coffin was hewed out of a part of a poplar tree mid made in to two sections. A few years later a small sprout began to shoot from the crude coffin, and not long after wards a small poplar tree began to spread its branches over the grave. Within a few year? it had grown to large proportions, and during the long period since it first appeared above the ground the. tiny poplar ?sprout has grown into a tree that measures several feet in circumfer ence and towers above all others in the vicinity. Its branches spread far out in all directions, and many perhaps who pass near ...
