BOLD ONCE MORE. They met in a beautiful room in a large hotel. One of them was pale as a ghost, the other blushed red as 8 cherry: Presently they came tbgether, and although mnany pairs of eyes were watching them, they kissed. They seemed perfectly happy, but only for a few short seconds. A big man? ewaggee towards them. His face wore a determined frown. Raising the stick he carried he struck one sharp blow. Oh, the pale -ne was sent spinning away. There was n'a crying; tPi grief at the parting. Nobody fainted. Nothing happened. You see billiard balls are used to that kind of thing.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 25 July 1914
THE conference of representatives of district municipalities held on Thursday in Geelong came to no decision which is likely to advance the position of adjoining shires and boroughs. The business dealt with was a matter of repre sentation, and it was resolved to urge the' Minister of Health to briig- in a bill to amend the hos. pital constitution to enable :district municipalities to elect two repre sentatives. By a mischance, Crs Klug and Thwaites, who were to have represented Queenscliff, ar rived too late to introduce the :financial aspect of the question as affecting the borough. This was due to the temporary disarrange. ment -of, the car-in which they travelled, but it is a pity indeed such was the case, as the other re presentatives... wotld have been given soniething to think about as concerning small municipalities. ThaI. ;only 'hope at present for Queenscliff rests a, to whether the additional representatives will be agreed upon, and if -so, will Queenscliff be represented ...
THE FARM. ENGINES ON THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 25 July 1914
THE FARM. ENGINES ON THE FARM. It will. be very interesting if sta tistics could he obtained showing how engines have entered into farm ing .and grazing operations. The "Scientific American" recently stated that as far as the United States are concerned, in 1911 three companies alone made upwards of 100,000 engines ranging in size from 2 to 15 h.p. Eighty-seven manufac turers reported that they had sold since starting in business 655,000 en gines, while seventy-six firms report ed early in 1912 that their require ments for the year were at least 705,000 engines. As nearly as can be determined there are 750 manufacturers of gaso line and oil engines in the United States, and fully 500 of these make a specialty of farm engines. Their output must be at least half a mil lion engines a year. It is safe to as sume that there are about 2,000,090 gasoline and oil engines on American farms at the present time. The num ber is being added to at the rate of about 500.000 annually. The average s...

CHAPTER XLII. MONTEJO'S ESCAP&. - The Russian proved as good as his word. He led his companions across the.:open space adjoining the prison, and then went tortuously . through the darkest and narrowest streets that could be found. To reach Gov ernment House without encountering people on the way was, of course, impossible ; but the daring three, trusting to the excitement and to the fact that their faces were partly concealed, pushed on calmly and swiftly.. At every few yards they met armed' men hastening ,towards the lower town, or pouring out of their houses. And the tumult that rose oh all-sides baffles description. Children crying, women shrieking and sobbing, voices questioning in tones of wild alarm, the clanging of bells, the dis tant rattle of musketry and roar of conflict-these t...
INSURING MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 25 July 1914
INSURING MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS. Owing to the T~Ig?geinufiber of ac cidents occurring every-year to moun-i tain climbers and tourists in the Alps, several Swiss insurance com panies have established an accident policy for the benefit of persons un dertaking these mountain excursions. For a premium of sixpence a season, certain Alpine clubs offer insurance to their members to the amount of about £4 10s., with medical care, etc., included. The amount of the Premium is less where groups of five' or ten persons are insured together. There is also an insurance policy is sued for the winter season against ski and bobsleigh accidents in the Alps. 1931. To make potatoes dry and mealy when baked, put a fork at least. twice into each potato to let the steam out. When baking grease the, skins first with a little butter, and when cooked they will be beautifully brown and crisp, with the glazed ap pearance that makes them so appeti sing.

The rest of tht year the officers and men live in v-hat is called a " parent "-or "mother" ship-but they "exercise" the toat three or four times a-week, generally from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.,, go ing through various evolutions, such as diving and "attacking," and also torpedo-firing. Let us go down through the hatch way of the little conning tower. A few rungs of ladder and we reach the main deck, the only deck, in fact, of the submarine, inside the " fish," in the hull. .THE FIRST IMPRESSION is one of heat. The air is close and heavy, and, as a seaman expressed, it, "Ain't it thick, sir !" and he ad ded, "It soon makes you feel sleepy, but tlhey keep us so busy in here that we get over the drowsiness." How smell! The highest standing room is Gft. Gin. high, and towards b:oth ends the roof gradually declines and the floor becomes narrowe...
SHRIEKS FROM A RAILWAY CARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 1 August 1914
SHRIEKS FROM A RAILWAY CARRIAGE. A young lady who is often seen on Birmingham concert platforms had a singular and amusing experience when returning with' a friend from London. Just before reaching Ox ford the speed of the train began to slacken, and the engine to emit some particularly loud and piercing ,histles. Our heroine pronounced the note to be C in fault, and was challenged by her companion to reach it. There being no. one but the pair in the compartment sht responded with a great expanse of lung power, and to such effect that the sound of the engine was as nearly as poss"ile reproduced. Whistle fol lowed whistle, and-to each an echo came from the throat of the singer. This continued for some minutes un til all at once the train slowed down and then stopped. Heads went to windows and it was evident some thing was wrong, for the guard was along peering into each carriage. As he came to that in which were the two ladies he repeated the query he had evidently been making at eac...
