Port Albert. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 25 March 1914
Port Albert. (t'Uo.M OL'it own roi!iii:sroN'i)i:\TV At a meeting of tin; school committcc, held on Saturday night, tlic typhoid epidemic was discussed, and strong comments wen; made concerning the action of the authorities in not trying much to trace the outbreak. Not a word of warning has been issued to householders as to the necessary pre cautions that should be taken. The correspondent of the school some, time ago was instructed to write to all schools within .1 10 mile radius, with the object of having a monster | marine picnic. It was thought by the local committee it would lie a good | thing to give the children an outiu;.'. but only one school (and that was not Yarram) consented to go. Tliey are lint likely to have the chance of a cheap outing again. Two men of the "cheap .Jack " class visited the town last week and rented the hall on i'riday and Saturday. It was surprising the amount of money they took out of the town. l'eople seemed possessed of a craze for buying the stufl...

Melbourne Letter. 1'OMTICIAXS AT YAltlAXCK. The Treasurer, Sir John Forrest, tho Assistant Minister for Home Af fairs, Mr. W. IT. Kelly, and tlio Leader of the Opposition continue to wage personal Warfare. You will have noticed that both parties are fighting, so to speak, in the Trans continental Railway trenches. And both have been bringing some heavy artillery into the fighting line. "Mr. Fisher lias brought-soine grave charges against certain Federal Departments, so grave indeed that there is just a possibility that he may bo called on to substantiate them in another place. But that by the way. What tlio man in the street is saying, in his usual cynical manner, is, that Liberals and Laboritcs alike are trying to make all possible political capital out of the railway affair.

ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 25 March 1914
ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH. CITL'T 01" A ST'L'I'j. Oil last Sunday, at each mass, the Hev. Father Sterling announced to the congregation that through the gener osity of Mr Patrick Breiinan the Cath olics of Yarrani had obtained a magni ficent site for the proposed now church, with other lands in addition. Mr Ijrennan lias given the entire block, which contains three ijiiarter-acre blocks, at the corner of Coinmerci.il roail and Buckley-street, with the ad dition of a half acre not fenced in with the above block as it appears at pres ent. Also, he has given that piece of land which separates the church and Presbytery grounds from Jiuckley strcet. The site for the church is an ideal one, and the Catholics of Yarram naturally feel deeply grateful to their generous benefactor for his valuable gift?. Father Sterling said that the chief obstacle to the crcction of a new church, namely, the want of a suitable site, had now been removed, and lie ex pressed himself as confident that the noble u.\...

GIRL'S INFATUATION | I A remarkable story of a .schoolgirl's Infatuation for a music hall artist, for whom she sacrificed her hair, was told at tho Central Criminal Court (says "The Dally Express" of Janu ary 16), when Frank Harwood, aged 39, was indicted on a charge of having unlawfully taken a girl named Nellie Dunn, tinder the age of 1G years, out of tho possession of Charles Herbert Dunn, her father.

HISTORIC TOWN [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 27 March 1914
HISTORIC TOWN Of the three parish churches which will shortly become the cathe drals of the three now dioceses. the most interesting is St. James's, Hury St. Edmunds. The town has asso ciations which make ii worthy of helntf the cathedral city of u dioeope. Parliament was held in the town in 1272, and 1 i 11». and sovereigns were entertained there in former ages in lnvlsh manner. The Abbey, which Canute founded In 1020, became one of the richest ami most important in medhvval tim,?s. with an enormous income. The "new" cathedral church dates from the tlf teenth century, but the tower, which serves j\h iv swt e;unpavi\lc, Is a telle of Norman England, and is said to bo the original work of Abbot An flelm, who was a nephew of the famous archbishop. The new toe will be known as St. Edmundsbury and Ipswich, a not unpleturesque de signation. recalling the combination of St. Andrews and Edinburgh.

January 21).

WINTER SPORTS IN NORWAY AMUSEMENT OF THE PEOPLE. Winter sports In Norway (writes a correspondent In "The Times") aro the amusement of the people. They might really be called democratic if the word were not habitually used to denote something disagreeable and unpopular. For there is hardly a man or woman in Norway under middlo age, except tt e infirm, who does not spend most of his or her spare time struggling with the laws of gravity in the winter months. And there arc five of these •7,-Inter months at the very least, even at sea level; higher up they have never been counted, but enthusiasts take "a busman's holiday" by holding an an nual ski-jumping -competition on -Mid summer's 1-tay somewhere In the moun tains near Finse. The strange thing Is that the cult for winter sports la not much older in Nor way than elsewhere. Boys havo pre sumably always tried to slide dowi. slopes somehow, and the more leisur ed used to do a little skating; but, -10 years ago, it was not considered gen ...

JAPAN'S VOLCANOES A TROUBLED LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 27 March 1914
JAPAN'S VOLCANOES ] . 1 A TROUBLED LAND. (By E. Bruce Mitford, F.R.G.S., In "The Daily Telegraph.") With characteristic suddenness the islands of Japan have added one more to the already long list of their vol canic disasters. The unexpected and destructive outburst of the Sakurus hima volcano will servo to remind us that the land which the passing tourist is wont to apostrophise as that of the lotus—"where it is always afternoon"— is one of the most troubled on the face of tills planet. Japan has 160 separate volcanoes. Three-fourths of these are "dead." Thnt Is to say, they are so regarded official ly—in the maps of the Tokio geologists; though, now and again, one of them violently gives the He to the recorders of their history, Sakurashima, though not "dead," was generally thought to be "dying." Some ten years ago the present writer was taken to.task by a local pundit for describing this volcano, in a little work of reference, as still active. Two years before the great eruption ...
