PART 2. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 2 April 1914
It was late when Sidney Knritan readied the theatre. lie had been detained by important business, and was only in time to hand Vidu to her carriage. As she saw him coming up the narrow stage-entrance towards her, alt the coldness that had gathered around her yearning heart, as the hours had passed without bringing him, was swept away, and an exul tation rose like wine to her brain. She let her eyes linger upon the soft waves of his nmbcr hair above tbe white brow, the clear, expres sive eyes of deepest blue contrast ing so intensely wit/h the bronze co lour of cheek and chin. His hand sought hers, and to gether they walked out under the stars of June, unspoken lo\c surg ing in the heart of each. "Oh, why did you not come sooner ?" Vldavasked, a wistful light in her soft, dark eyes. "You know I leave early to-morrow /or Narra gansott, and our good-bye must be so hurried !" Sidney could scarcely control his desire to take the young face close to his own and kiss those tempting lips un...
An Eternal Question. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 2 April 1914
An Eternal Question. There la much talk at present by eminent scientists as to what form the spirit takes nfter death. Tltrough all the ages men have Bought tho duo to this groat mystery, and, in nil probability, tho theories which are being oxpounded to-dny were expounded thousands ot years ago by I tho wise Eastern,men, 1 It Is certain, however, that there lire moments in tho course of tho average person's lifo when tho spirit, of death hovors perilously near. It is just after birth that tho an gels of life and death fight tholr | fiercest battle, and the next most, dangerous ago is that of soventy-] one. Tho ago of three comes next in im portance in this respect. Almost | one-fourth of all babies born dioj during the third year. From threo to forty-five is a com paratively snfo period, but tho lat-1 tor age is admittedly a trying and . dangerous one.

CHAPTER IV. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 2 April 1914
•IT iWTTT.T? IV "They say you murdered him 1 Ilmv those words echoed and j throbbed in Sidney Karitan's brain, i us his horrified, angry eyes stared into the set, pale, triumphant face of the man who had only just de clared himself his enemy ! Outside the small, leafy cnclosurc could he heard the sleepy city sounds of a night in June. Spar rows, half awake, made soft, sleepy plaints in the trees rustling above them, a belated organ-grinder churn-: ed out his last tune : ! Oh, love fur a year, a week, a day; But alas for the Jove that loves alway ! The plaintive refrain surged into one voice with the echoing jar of a tram-car down the half-deserted thor oughfare, and the words he had just heard seemed by some magic to have j merged themselves in the air of the love-song, beating, burning, throb-! bing in Sidney's brain : 1 muVifered^Ymn.*'^'"' At lost the cold horror relaxed around his heart, and his deep-blue eves under the dnrk, thick brows flashed with the light of defiance.

A Wrinkle for Cow Bails. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 2 April 1914
A Wrinkle for Cow Bails. Dairymen have often felt tho need of nil Improvement in the floor ing ol their cow bails, and the following method is one which com mends itself as a practicable and clean contrivance. It 1ms the ad vantage of doing away with the splash of urine during milking, which is alxvnys present when tho floor is made of cement or any other com pact surface. Take from 15 to 20 pieces of o x 1 hardwood and nail .them firmly—about an inch apart — on to two piccos of 4 x o hard wood. Tho 4x3 pieces must be about four or five feet long, and the wholo .will form an oblong floor. Lay this long ways in the bail with half a sheet cf galvanised Iron beneath it to drain off the urine. The iron will also be found useful for tho removal of manure. When it has been fixed in position, the rest of the floor can be cement ed up level to make it noat, and tho whole will form a comfortablo and economical bail. May (indignantly) : "I don't caro ; I think Harry Ensterleigh is down light ...

Cheese v. New Milk. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 2 April 1914
Cheese v. New Milk. People sometimes wonder (says tho London " Dairy") whether cheese making' or new-milk selling pays best. At the present time it is a question that comes to the front because everyone knows that new ^ milk has gone up in price for the, time being, while so 1ms cheese. I The basis of comparative competi-, lion is easy to get at, how'ever. Ono pound of curd is produced from one* gallon of milk, tho cheese itself being probably something like 8 per cent, less thun the originul curd. If milk, therefore, is reckoned at 8d* per gallon, then cheese is also re- , quired to bo sold at Sd. per lb., 1 or,, say, 74s. per cwt., while other prices would be in proportion. Tho great drawback in the process of cheese-making is the extra labour required. Financially it is usual to reckon that the whey as a by* product would cover the cost of labour whether fed to pigs or calves. All the sum?, paying for the labour docs not exactly cover the cost, because ehcesc-m&Mug is a t...

One Farthing and Costs. LECiAL LAXGUAOK INTKlU'Itli TJ3L> INTO SIAri'I.K TKHMS. There are lots of legal phrases | that may puzzle you in following a big law case. Everybody at times follows tin? newspaper reports of big law cases, whether murder trials or sensational civil cases. But .at times a good deal of the interest drops out when legal phrases crop up that, one does not. under stand, particularly as it is over 1 legal points that "scenes in court" usually arise. "Leading questions" give rise to more scenes than anything else. A leading question is simply n ques tion put in such a form that the witness knows what answer counsel 1 wants him to make—questions which": suggest a fact, and leave the wit- j ness only to answer " Yes" or i "Xo."

The Escalator, or Moving Stairway. Our illustration, taken from "Cas hier's Magazine," shows in a sim plified manner tlio construction of (he moving stairways which ore Inking tho placo of lifts in largo stores, drapery establishments, olc. its great advantage over a lift lies in the fact that it is always in motion ; no timo is lost in taking on and discharging passengers as in a lift. Tho speed of moving is not great, of course, but Just tho speed at which tho passenger may with facility stop upoti or from it in absolute safety. Tho first essen tial of design is to inspiro confi dence on the part of the passen ger, and this was one great reason that determined the inventors to make it in the form of a stair case—an architectural feature fami liar to all from infancy. The cscn- j lator may he described as a con- ' tinuous series _of rigid steps, unit ed Ivy ut\ endless sprocket chain. Through the arrangement of tho tracks, any desired relation of the steps is secured ; on the landi...
FREE LUNCHES IN CHURCHES. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 2 April 1914
..FREE LUNCHES IN CHUKOHKS. | To the Congregational : Church of Cincinnati, of which theHew Arthur Kelly is pastor, belongs the credit of establishing the first free lunch for worshippers. Soup, coffec, sandwiches and cakes are followed by the ser mon, and those without a lodiing for the night may snooze for a few hours by day in the cosy plush pews. According ' to Mr. Kelly, the Ameri can churches can learn from the schools which give the scholars a free breakfast, and from the public house keepers ill the bmtsd States, who give free meals from mid-day till supper-time. Mr. Kelly argues that the public house keepers really know men, and a great many preachers do not. He .believes that the majority of men,! especially, tile poorest, go to the pnb lie-house not bo much to drink, but because they find there warmth, "cheer, and food. - "To compete with the public-housc, I servo a better lunch," said Mr. Kelly.
