Rural Workers' Camp Failure. Forty or fifty men, who wore induced by unionist orgaitisers to locate them. selves in a Rural Workers' Camp at Willaura; have had a decidedly unhappy experience. They waited patiently in cnmp for work under Log conditions, but the farmers in the district got along jqiteo romfortably without the assistance of the campers, who were eventually told to their disgust and dis appointment thatithe abject of the camp wasnot to' get them swork under Log conditions, but to attract the attention of the public with a view to having the criso brought before the Arbitration" Court. With-this came the further nn nouncoment that the camp was to be broken up, and. the anampers had to hump bluey and wnuder off to seek em ployment. complaining bitterly as they went that they had been misled by the TUnion authorities.
Scott's Epitaph and Its Origin [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 5 January 1914
Scott's Epitaph and Its Orl. gin Perhaps the most interesting feature of the January "Life" which is just to hand, is a photograph and an explan.. tion of the origin of the epitaph which was written for the msmo'ial oross to Captain Scott and his fellow heroes. It seems that when Captain Scott was leaving for the South Pole Dr. Alexander Leoper, Warden of Trinity College, ?Melbourne. gave him as a memento a little volume of Browning, in which he wrote the concluding lines from Teeny ion's Ulysses: "To strive, to seek, to ind, but not to yield." The littlevolume rae discovered in the tent with Captain Scott, and tho members of the search party, considering the lines a most ap proprata epitaph, carved them on the arose which stands on Observation Hill. Other interesting articles in this ex. cellent number are: "The Greatest Business on Earth" in which Frederick Palmer, the war correspondent, tells how 'cience has robed war of its romance; atr Carlyle Smythe's description of Zfax O'Rel...

Printed MONDAY & THURSDAY E&VENINGS -MONDAY, JA.NUARY 5, 1914. Coluntry Telephone Lines. Suggested New Departure. The difficulty which the Postmnaster General is meeting with just now in getting country telephone lines erected a under contract, at reasonable cost, and within reasonable time, has led the chief electrical enginces to advise Mr -Wynne that the only hope of getting such lines expeditiously and economically erected is to get local people to undertake the supply of poles and the stretching of i wires, to departmental specifications, under supervision of departmental officers. Any country resident of aver age intelligence could have told the de partmental authorities long ago that this was the case-many people have told theam so. I owever, better late than never. If Mr Wynne and other Minis. ters, Federal and State, will each act upon the advice of the engineer referred to, country people will get not only telephone hnes erected, but many other public works...

The Spineless Cactus. A Wonderful Plant. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 5 January 1914
The Spineless Cactus. Ol 'A Wonderful Plant. - By B. HARRISON, F.L.S. F This useful and prolific plant is not yet known,, and it would prove of great valne to pastoralists, especially in poor or semi arnd country, where vegetation of any kind exists with dificulty. During the hot dry seasons or periods of drought when all other fodder plants are lan. guishing or are destroyed with the in tenhbeat, this plant would be luxuriant, and being of a rich juicy nature, the ne cessity for much water, if any, would he greatly mininmised. It can bo readily grown in any class of dry soil, and after the ? rst year will produce about 100 tons per acre of succulent and nutritious fodder, which can be fed to all kinds of stock and poultry. and it is highly praises by the leading authorities, who say that it make. beef and butter. or milk of the best quality. The improved varieties 3ield heavy crops of large and nutritious fruit which makes excellent preserves, and the fleshy young leaves are a good...

Victoril v N.S.W. An unpleasant incident arose in' con; nection with the leadorship of the Vio torians who on Now Year's Day coin monaed In match against Now South' Wales at the M.C.C. ground. Ransford had been appointed captain by the Board of Control, who thus passed over Arm strong. Captain of the M.C.C. Eleven, who had undoubtedly first claim to the position.

In default of Armstrong. E. V. Carroll reluctantl...

Cricket. Victoria v South Australia. Armstrong's Splendid Performance. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 5 January 1914
Cricket., Victoria v South Australii. Armstrong's Splendid Performance. The game commencod on Boxing Day and concluded on Tuesday will always be remembered in cricket records as "Arm strong's match," for it is quite clear that it was the big M.C.C, man alone who pulled the Victorians through by saving his siste from utter collapse in the first, giving confidence to his colleagues in the second, and helping with his fine'second innings score of 182, to swell the total of the Victorian team. On Monday, with 245 runs for the first innings and 14,5 for loss of three wickets in thoe second, the visitors ran their second innings score to 246, Steele putting on 84, Kirkwood 58. and Crawford 20, thus raising the grand total to 491.

This left the Victorians with 207 still to get for a win-and they got the...
Portland Steamer Service. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 5 January 1914
Portland Btenmer Service. At a public meeting held at Portland, on Friday, December 19, it was proposed to seek improvement of the steamer service from Melbourno by (1) forming a local steamship company ; (2) seeking to iniduce competition with the company now carrying on the service; (3) ap. proaching that company with requests for a better and more regular service. It was finally agreed to invite compoti. tion from another company. It stands as a matter, of course, that the works in progress for improving the harbour t Portland will be wasted, and the money spent upon them thrown away unless a steamer service can be maintained with such regularity, and on such terms as as regards freight as will induce peoplS in the inland towns of this district to use this service extensively for the coll. veyance of goods to and from Melbourne. The most effective means of inducing steamship owners to establish a thoroulgh. ly satisfactory service will, however, be to so build up the carrying ser...

Circus and School Examination. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 5 January 1914
iOrcus nnd School Exanmin-. tioen. At the first blush, the tuggestion of any particular connection between ai circus and a school examination appears ridiculous. It seems to be highly prob. able, however, that Wirtlh's circus was to some extent responsible for the shockingly poor result of recent exam. inations held at the Castertou State School. when out of 56 candidates from five schools for Merit and Qualifying certificates, not a ingle one was sue. cetsful. There is at all events indis. putable evidence that on examination day the candidates and other children at the school were so restless and unsettled, under excited anxiety to see the animalns and other eights of the circus, showiong that dayat Casterton, that quite prob. ably some of them failed through at. tention being diverted from their work who would otherwise have passed. But there was no circus at Casterton ot examination days in precious years, when resulta, if not quite so bad as this year, w?re anything but satisfa...
