A GRGAT ENGINEERING WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 18 April 1914
A GRGAT ENGINEERING WORK. The completion of the Los Angeles . aqueduct, say3 the '"Scientific Ameri can," marks the successful ending of an arduous struggle with nature in its mast rugged aspects of mountain aiul desert, and v.ith powerful and subtle private interests for the pos session of a priceless supply of water. The ten aqueducts of ancient Rome were marvels of engineering skill and durability; but their construction stretched over a period of /five cen turies, against the eight years that have elapsed since the Los Angelgs aqueduct was first proposed, and the length and dimensions of the ancient Roman aqueducts bear no comparison with that of modern Los Angeles. The longest of the Roman aqueducts was G2 miles, while the Los Angeles aque duct is 254 miles in length, from the intake 011 Owens River to the city limits of Los Angeles. The irrigation aqueducts of the lnca Indians of an cient !.Jeru, one of whicli was 3li0 miles long, are among tiie wonders of the world, especiall...
A HORSELESS TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 18 April 1914
A HORSELESS TOWN. At the doors of Indianapolis there is to be the first "truly horseless city in America, and—save, perhaps, tor those places where oxen,, goats, cam els, or what not else furnish native and locomotive power—the flrst horse less ctty of the world. The actual construction work is well under way, and in two or three years there will he a complete town. The horse that tries to enter, says the "Motor," will be turned back as sternly as motorists used to be from the strip on the Ocean Parkway in Brooklyn. The man with the motor car may enter free as air. It Is planned to make this city, j which is named Speedway, an Indus trial olty devoted to the interests of the motor-car trade. 1
CHARACTER IN YOUR THUMBS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 18 April 1914
CHARACTER IN YOUR THUMBS. Just as the chin gives qualities 10 the face, so the thumb marks tne personality of the hand, and is an unerring index to a man's natural strength or weakness of character. The man with a long, straight thumb, square at the tip, possesses good mental capacity, and can al- I ways be relied upon to carry out successfully any work with which he may be entrusted. His temperament is even and judicial; he is a born governor of men, overcomes difficul ties, carries himself with dignity, and by his ability to concentrate all his faculties upon the matter in hand, combined. with his tenacity of pur pose, rapidly becomes a power among his fellows. If the thumbs be long, thick, and heavy at the tip, with the joints prom inent, a tyrannical and cruel nature is indicated, everything being viewed from an intensely selflBh standpoint. A short, straight thumb shows ob stinacy and driving power. If very thick and heavy at the tip, a brutish, unreasoning disposition will be ...
The Limit. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 18 April 1914
The Limit. Mary Jane's master la a slightly ec centric bachelor. He has'one most irritating habit. Instead o£ telling her what he wants done by word of mouth he leaves on his desk, or on the kitchen table, or anywhere else where she is likely to see it, a note curtly directing her to "Dust the diiir ing-room," or "Turn out my cup board," and so on. The other day he bought some note paper, with the usual die-sunk ad dress imprinted upon it, from the sta tioner, and, ordered it to be sent home. Mary Jane took it in, and the first thing that caught her eye was a note attached to the package. She read it open-eyed. "Well," she said, "he's asked me to do a few things in his blessed notes, but this is the limit. I won't stand jt no longer!" For the note read: "Die Inside Tins Package." '
WORDS OF WIT AND WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 18 April 1914
WORDS OF WIT AND WISDOM. Be good, but also be good for some tiling. It usually costs a mail something to listen to flattery. Life is not all night and conflict; morning breaks at last. Know your man before you let his opinions weigh much. Singleness of purpose is not the same thing as 'strength of character. To be conscious that you are ig norant is a great step to knowledge. Preaching is out and away easier than practising, but not half so ef fectual. Everything that thou reprovest in another, tliou must most carefully avoid in thyself.—Cicero. A-committee is a thing'which takes a week to do what one good man can do in an hour. Many of the tilings which worry us most ara trifles when we come to ciMminc them closely. To have a respect for ourselves guides our morals and. to have a de ference for others governs our man ners.—Sterne. Nine-tenths of the people who fail in life do so because they have never appreciated the value „of thorough ness. ' -*■ Only for the cheerful does the tr...
Already Equipped. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 18 April 1914
Already Equipped. "Don't know whether it's new or not. I heard it at G said the man who had recently returned from that town. "There's a rich widow living just outside the place," he continued, "and after several elderly gentlemen had vainly endeavored .to lure her into matrimony, a report gained circula tion that she was a regular man-hater. Finally a wealthy widower, carrying with him the evidence o£ good living and the heartiness that seeks con genial companship, visited the town, and was soon a caller upon the in tractable widow. "After he thought sufficient ad vancement had been made to justify a proposal he proceeded to feel his ■way. " 'Beautiful home you have here.' "Yes, I enjoy it.' " 'Fine outlook, fine trees, very fine all round. But there is one thing lacking.' " 'Yes.' " 'It is an Adamless Eden, don't you know. You are so good in everything else that I should think you would be glad to share these blessings with a husband.' - " 'Are you proposing, sir?' " 'In a tentati...
PRISON MASTERPIECES. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 18 April 1914
PRISON MASTERPIECES. i Dyron's famous poem, "The PrlBon- j er of Chlllon," Is supposed to bo writ ten by Bonnlvard, the Genevan pa triot, wlillst ho was Incarcerated In the Chateau of'Clilllon, 011 the shores 1 of the lake. But the poem was really written at lightning speed whilst Myron was Imprisoned by Inclement, weather for a night and a day in the neighborhood. Nevertheless, some notable literary achievements have been really writ ten in gaol, undoubtedly the most.out standing being two of the world's greatest classics, "Tlie Adventures of Don Qulxoto" and "The Pilgrim's Pro gress." If only those two books had belonged to the literature of captivity they would liavo been sufficient to make that literature distinguished and immortal. Thomas Cooper, the Chartist, whose life roads like a romance, and whoso nnino Is held in revorence by modern reformers, wrote a remarkable poem whilst he was lying in prison 011 ac count of Ills political agitation. This poem bears the remarkable tit...

Head of the House. A man, accompanied by his wife, visited a tailor's to order a suit of clothes. The couple differed as t.o the choice of material, and the man ner of making until the wife lost her temper. "Oh! well, please yourself," she said, turning away, "I suppose you are the one who will wear the clothes." "Well," observed the husband meek ly, '"I didn't Buppose you'd want to wear the coat and waistcoat."
The Same Line. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 18 April 1914
The Same'Line. Several "commercials" were seated in a railway carriage, when the door opened and an elderly woman enter ed, whose appearance denoted that she was a native of the Emerald Isle. One of the party, who posed as a wag, at once began to extract amuse ment from her by asking a number of ridiculous questions, to which she replied good humoredly, and at last exclaimed: "Now, sorr, I've given you a good dale ov me history, may I take the liberty av axln what ye are yersilf? What ye do for a livin' lolke?" "Certainly, ma'am, certainly," was the ready reply, "I'm a traveller in the hard and soft goods line." "Indade, now," said Biddy, "that's quare, my ould man's a traveller, too." "Indeed, ma'am," was the surprised rejoinder. "What line is he in, pray!" "Just the same as'yersilf, sorr, the hard and soft goods loine—he tliravela up a ladder wid bricks an' mortar." The inquisitive bagman did not press for further information.
The New Woman's Quandary. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 18 April 1914
The New Woman's Quandary "Yes," the new woman remarked, "I am greatly troubled." "By what?" "Well, J want to get married just to prove that I can, and I don't want to get married just to prove that I don't need to. If I don't, they'll say I can't; if I do, they'll say I have no more independence than any other woman." "Nothing but dyiiamltii will remove me from my benefice," says an a?ed rector. We hope Ills bishop won't "blow him up."
