QUININE OUTPUT LIMITED [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 19 February 1914

QUININE OUTPUT LIMITED Quinine, the price of which has Just been advanced, is one of a number of drugs whose values are not wholly gov erned by the law of supply and de mand. The drug is obtained from Cinchona bark, which is no named because it was introduced into medicine in 1638 by Countess Chinchon, the wife of the Viceroy of Peru, who was herself cured of a fever by its aid. In the whole sale drug markets the bark is still call ed Chinchona, but the pharmacopoeial name is Cinchona. Until comparatively recent years the supply of bark was obtained from South America, and it is in fact still commonly known as Peruvian bark. But about fifty years ago an Eng lish traveller obtained some Cinchona seeds and brought them to England, where they were eventually bought by the Dutch Government. They were planted in the Island of Java, and af ter a long series of experiments the Dutch Government succeeded in culti vating trees which will yield two or even three times as much quinine as the b...

Grasmere. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 19 February 1914

Grasmere. (From Our Correspondent) A fire, which might have been at tended with very serious results, occur red at Cooramook, about three miles from here, on Saturday afternoon. Vast areas of long dry grass abound in every direction, and if the fire .had started a little sooner, there is no telling what might.have been the result. As it was, about 2000 acres of grass, some sheep, plantations, aud miles of fencing were destroyed. The heaviest losers by-the fire were Messrs R. Jones, H. Askew, M. Kelly, and C. Holder. The fire which started between two and three o'clock originated at some quarry men's camp, but the men declare that they left no sign of fire. It appears to have started in one of the tents, as a quantity of blast ing powder exploded and scattered some of the fire a considerable distance, caus ing the grass to start, Great gangs of men from the stations in the direction of Hexham were at work with ploughs and water on Sunday, and it is hoped that with favorable weather n...

PAID IN FULL [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 19 February 1914

PAID IN FULL Nineteen years ago, on December 11, 1894, Mr J. W. Cook, an ambitious young man of twenty-six, was dismiss ed from an office in Wolverhampton, where he was engaged in the railway contracting business. His dismissal was followed by his being declared a bankrupt. On Wednesday last, December 17 (says '"The Daily Mail")Mr Cook;middle aged and prosperous, entered the Of ficial Receiver's office at Wolverhamp ton and presented the Receiver with a cheque for £800, which will pay his creditors twenty shillings in the pound and all the cost in connection with the bankruptcy proceedings. The £800 represents not a sudden windfall, but money saved bit by bit by a man with a fine respect for his good name and that of his wife and children. "The day I was dismissed is very vivid in my merory," said Mr Cook. "We were all looking forward to Christ mas Day. I was earning good money and we were expecting an addition to our family. I was young and head strong and lost my temper very easil...

AMERICAN TRADE MORE UNEMPLOYMENT THAN SINCE 1907. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 19 February 1914

AMERICAN TRADE MORE UNEMPLOYMENT THAN SINCE~ 1907. President Wilson expects to sign the Currency Bill in about a fortnight, so that the nation may have this long wished-for and much discussed mea sure for giving greater freedom and flu idity to credit as its Christmas present for 1913 (says the New York correspon dent of "The Daily - News," December 9). The delay in inducing the Senate to end its deliberations, due to the bank ers' fear that the Bill would estab lish too much political control, has been one of the chief obstacles to the general resumption of business activity. Indeed, industrial conditions, as indicated by the railway returns, the investment market, and the number of laborers out of work, are extremely depressed. It is stated that there are more unem ployed in the Middle West as well as the Eastern States than in any year since 1907. This applies particularly to railways, in consequence of the re trenchment policy by most of the com panies, while reports from Chicag...

VISIT TO "AUSTRALIA. M:ir. E. W.

SMr. Chaplin acknowledged that" a 13 weeks' stay in a great country like Australia made it impossible to give anything like a complete outline of the possibilities of this wonderful country. Australia is 25 times. as large as the United Kingdom, nearly three-quarters the size of. Europe, larger than the United States, and four-fifths the size of Canada. It is very rich in natural wealth, producing gold, silver, lead, copper, and precious stones. In addition, there are vast deposits of iron ore which have been scarcely touched; but the pastoral industry, owing to the splendid climatic conditions, is ...

RECLUSE OF MAYFAIR [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 19 February 1914

RECLUSE OF MAYFAIR •In the heart of Mayfair there re cently died a lady of considerable wealth, who for nearly 20 years had lived the life of a recluse, almost un known to her neighbors. - She was Mrs Julia Macdonald, and she led a solitary existence, attended by only one servant, at a house in South street, Park lane. In the same street reside Earl Grey, Katherine Duchess of Westminster, Sir Samuel Scott.

WOMAN'S LOST £1000 EXAMINATION OF AN EX-BANK MANAGER. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 19 February 1914

WOMAN'S LOST £1000 EXAMINATION OF AN EX-BANK MANAGER. Appearing for his public examinatiomi at Wandsworth Bankruptcy Court yes terday (reports "The Daily Mail" of De cember 21), Mr Herbert Bray, formerly manager of the Tooting-broadway branch of the London Joint Stock Bank, attributed his insolvency to a judgment for £1000 and costs obtained against him by Miss S. A. E~ Bool, of Tooting Junction, but he denied his liability. The assets are returned at 10 guineas. The debtor said that Miss Bool, a cus tomer of the bank, told him that she wanted to invest £1000 to bring her about £70 a year. He recommended her to a solicitor, and the securities he ad vised her to invest in proved worthless. The solicitor afterwards left the coun try. After failing in an action against the bank Miss Bool issued a writ against the debtor, but, on the advice of his solicitors, he did not defend it, He was now living on the charity of his friends.

The Heart of a Girl (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER X.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 19 February 1914

The Heart of a Girl By HENRY FARMER, Author of "The Money-Lender," "12a Quiltry Street," "Bondage," etc. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER X.-Continued. Thorne's hand closed over the bank-note. The general public had con signed the Hasted bank robbery to the limbo of forgotten things. The police had pigeon-holed it. Only a very small portion of the money stolen, in the shape of notes concealed in Stan more's bedroom, had been recovered at the time. The police theory had been, and was, that the bulk, composed mostly of notes, bonds and securities, the greater part being more or less negotiable with caution, might after a time filter back into circulation, probably on the Continent. The race course was another recognised place for the getting rid of stolen notes. The police were pretty sure on one sub ject, whether Stanmore had invented the story of Roy Stannard to distract attention from his real confederate, or had worked the robbery single handed; when Stanmore had served his time he ...
