THE SMART SET. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 16 February 1914
THE SMART SET. Mr Walter George's famous com pany of English entertainers, orga. nised under the above title, will make their initial appearance before a Mtaryborough audience at the Town Hall on Friday, 20th inst. The Smart Set will give songs, anees, and specialties from their extensive repertoire, and the pro gran?mme will include the first pro. duction here of one of the numerous musical comediettas for which this talented organisation is noted. An English newspaper, in writing of this company, says :-"Something that is neither a concert, a vaude ville performwnce, nor a musical comedy, and yet partakes of all such is the definition of the enter tainment provided at the Queen's Hall by 'The Smart Set.' Indi vidually, the artists are admirably equipped. They are vocalists, one and all; one or two of them are splendid dancers; in quartette sing ing they would be hard to beat; and in ensemble they move about the stage with an abandon and neat ness that makes the show go with a full...
THE CAROL OF THE POOR CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 16 February 1914
THE CAROL OF THE POOR CHILDREN. We are the poor children, come out to see Eights On this day of all days, on this night of nights, The stars in merry parties are dancing in the sky, A fine star, a new star, is shining on high! We are the poor children, our lips are frosty blue, We cannot sing our carol as well as rich folk do, Our todies are so empty we have no singing voice, But this night of all nights good child ren must rejoice. We do rejoice, we do rejoice, as hard as we can try, A fine star, a new star, is shining in the sky ! And while we sing our carol, we think of the delight The happy kings and shepherds make in Bethlehem to-night. Are we naked, mother, and are we starv ing-poor ? Oh, see what gifts the kings have brought outside the stable door; Are we cold, mother, the ass will give his hay To make the manger warm and keep the cruel winds away. We are the poor children, but not so poor who sing Our carol with our voiceless hearts to greet the new-born king On this night ...

WITH THE DAISIES. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 16 February 1914
WITH THE DAISIES. I was in a field to-day, Where some little children were; They were dancing at their play, Free from work and thought and care; When one said, and kindly, too, " We would like to play with you." So I chased a butterfly, I chased a curl of thistledown, I chased a bird into the sky, And hid to see would it come down; And I chased a painted ball, And I nursed a little doll. Waving frock and pinafore Little red-cheek 1 curly head I Laughing voices i I am sore That we ever must be aped From the sunlight and the play, In the fields of holiday. -James Stephens, in "Harper's."
THE LONGEST DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 16 February 1914
THE LONGEST DAY. How brief the longest day ! The glowing sun that seeks the western sky, The fickle cuckoo calling as she flies. The shadows lengthening as the bright hours pass, The dewdrops glistening on the thirsty grass, The evening breeze that whispers in the grove That fleet is Time, and fleeter still is Love: "Take heed, glad heart," they say; "Soon dies the longest day !" How brief the longest day I Each petal falling to its mossy bed, The drooping bracken crushed beneath our tread, The nightingale's refrain when daylight dies, The darkness deepening 'neath the sombre skies, The swallows flying low before the rain, Each lonely soul that wrestles with life's pain: "Rejoice, sad heart," they say; "Soon dies the longest day!" -Nora C. Usher, in "Chambers's Journal."
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 16 February 1914
Complaints have reached this office concerning illegal fishing practices that are being carried on in the district streams, and more especially in the Bet Bet Creek and Avoca River. It is stated that from Timor right up stream to Bang Bong the former waterway has been sys tematically netted. This is one of the most unfair methods of taking fish-even more so than the use of fixed lines-and it is to be hoped that the police will promptly do something to check it. The men who net stream fish are not sports in any sense, any more than those selfish individuals who shoot quail and duck out of season, usually when the birds are breeding. It is probably this netting of the creeks that is responsible for the rapid decrease in the fish supply of late. Honest fishermen are not getting a chance at all, and if it is not soon stopped the fine blackfish, for one, will soon be an altogether unobtainable quantity. For a close net takes all sizes of fish, and when men are unsportsmanlike enough to u...

AUSTRALIAN QUOTATIONS. Pain paves the way for keener joy, And wondrous thoughts uproll When the large moon of Peacelqooks down On high tide in the Soul. -Roderic Quinn.: "The Hidden Tide." On the sea-lake's face such a gleam is cast That it lies on the earth, in the 4ay's red clove, Like the quivering leaf of a heavenly rose. -Louise Mack: " The Lagoon at Manly." All is not daylight in the day, Not knowledge in the known; The life we are, the prayer we pray, From deep to deep is blown. -Bernard O'Dowd: " Mystic " in " Do minions of the Boundary." What worth is fame ? 'Tis but a name Blown world-wide, dustily How slow, how slow The laurels grow, How fast the cypress tree. -Hugh M'Crae: "Ehen Fagaces." Come again, Little Heart! I knock at the door, I wait for a footfall Over the floor! "Come again, Little Heart! Dost hear? It is I!" ( . . . Only the wind And the silence reply.) -Mary Gilmore,

FIVE HOURS IN A WHIRLPOOL. MOTOR-BOAT'S ADVENTURE [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 16 February 1914
FIVE HOURS IN A WHIRLPOOL. MOTOR-BOAT'S ADVENTURE Peter Langard, of Copenhagen, a young cinematograph actor, nearly lost his life while attempting to make a trip through the Whirlpool rapids, just below Niagara Falls in a small motor boat. He safely and swiftly navigated the tempestuous waters of the gorge and reached the outer edge of the famous whirlpool, when the engine went "dead." For five hours, Langard drifted round and round, bailing like a madman, as the leaky boat took water.. Every minute he could see planks drifting about him suddenly sucked down to the jagged rocks below by the grip of the pool. At eighet o'clock a freakish current ,wept the boat near enough to the shore for a line to be thrown aboard, and Langard, shivering and exhausted, was safely landed. Langard began his perilous journey at three o'clock, and the powerful motor boat darted t.hrough the tearing waters with beauti ful precision. The terrible strain, how evcr, caused the engine to stop, and. the boat ...
