TYSON'S WEALTH. A MUCH CRITICISED EULOGY. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 5 February 1914

TYSON'S WEALTH. A MUCH CRITICISED EULOGY. The following is Randolph Bedford's reference in the " Bulletin " to the late James Tyson, which opened up audi n flood of adverse criticism : Tyson's wealth obscured Tyson, as envy belittled him. To mo9t people without money or fume it is enough for a man to have a great deal of money or fame to call their hatred into action. His is a long story of cnurage, enter prise, endurance and self-denial, and he left; Australia better than he found it As a boy he drove cattle for wageB; saved a little ; bought a few bullocks in Riverina and sold them in Bendigo ; and BO played his part that he died worth seven millions and didn't hurt anyone in the making of it. His life was admirably simple, and he achieved a reputation for meanness, because, as a millionaire, he preferred camping in the open to sleeping in a hotel. They called him a'woman hater because he was too big a man to be indiscriminate, too good a fighter to be enslaved by s§x passion. He ...

FERTILISERS ON MEADOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 12 February 1914

FERTILISERS ON MEADOWS. The Agricultural Department of the Swiss Government have just published an interesting report of experiments conducted over three years to test the elt'ect of different fertilisers on meadow land. The fertilisers experimented with were nitrogen, phosphate of lime, and potash, the fertilisers being tried alone and mixed. The conclusion arrived at is that, in order to obtain the heaviest and most profitable crops, it is neces sary to supply fertilisers containing the three principal fertilising substances phosphoric acid, potash, and nitrogen. The extra yield obtained from this sys tem of manuring covers the cost of the fertilisers and leaves a good profit. The effect of the manures is more mark ed on the first cutting than on the second cut,-the average increase hav ing been found to bo from 62 to 100 per cent, on the former, and 20 to 40 per cent, on the second crop. A. new regulator, recently introduced i>: Swiss watches, works, is is stated, so "accurate...

AM I A JONAH? [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 12 February 1914

AM I A JONAH? The Australian aviator, Hawker, is receiving numbers of curious letters. Small boys, burning with the youthful ardor of emulation, write weird letters begging that Mi' Hawkey will take an interest in them and teach them to fly. Gut the most humorous letter of all was perhaps written- in all seriousness by its author. It reads as follows, and is not without a ring of pathos : I am writing this to ask you if you would undertake to solve for me a problem of no small dimensions In other words, I want to prove if I am the victim of a Btrange series of coinci-* deuces, or if there are such .persons in the world as "Jonahs," and if Iain one.

DECENTRALISATION. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 12 February 1914

DECENTRALISATION. Iii tho course of a lecture delivered in Melbourne recently by Mr T. M. Smith, organiser for the Victorian De centralisation League, that gentleman said that the. present condition in which 600,000 people, or nearly half the population of the State, were con centrated in one centre, was an abnor mal one, and was growing worse. Our total population was increasing, bufc the number of primary producers waa shrinking, and we were face to face with a serious problem, which might well occupy trie attention of the Inter state Commission. In order to find a remedy ifc was necessary to discover the cause, and Mr Smith contended that the great causes were to be found in the facts that all our railway lineB converged in Melbourne, and were con trived so that all the produce of th% state should be drawn to Melbourne, and that the system of freights and fares hampered production in the country. Until recently this bad been aggravated by the preferential freights which made it c...

In the Febru ary number, just to baud, the question of modern dancing is discussed,- with particular reference to the "tango" and other "freak" dancea. Opinions are expressed by leaders of the church and such notables as the Mayor of St Kilda, Miss Jenny Brennan, the raidtreBs of the ballet of Her Majesty's Theatre ; Mr R. 0. Clack; the general secretary of the Y.M.GA. ; Mrs Fairbairn, one of. the leaiiera of Melbourne society ; and Mrs Mary Gilmour, the well-known Australian poetess, who lived for BOUIB years in South America, where the Tango found its origin.

A COUNTRY LAND SALE. REPARTEE AIDS AUCTIONEER [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 12 February 1914

A COUNTRY LAND SALE. "REPARTEE AIDS AUCTIONEER The rooster crowed in an absent minded way, and then folded his wings and looked as if he were 'prepared for the worst. A land sale was going on, and advertisements had brought a num ber of men and women with an intent .look on their faces. The day was bot, and a cask of beer had been thoughtfully provided. It stood in a buggy in the shade. Every now and then a man with a pro-occu pied look would detach himself from the crowd and go to the cask. He drank the beer as if he were doing it from motives of scientific curiosity, not thirst, and went hack with a miud more confitmed on making a bargain in land. Next to him was his wife, with a little black bag in her hand, and an intention of strict business on her face. The average auctioneer does not lack ^ wit in the matter of replies to inter ruptions. This one mounted his ros trum-a kerosene case-with his hat at a jocular angle, and an expression .on his face as earnest as if he were a _fd...

OUR RURAL LETTER.

According to the statements adduced, many of the settlers, some of wiiom are amongst tlw pioneers of the western portions, have been brought to a precarious fin ancial position as the result of drought and 'tho ravages of grubs. The ob ject of the deputation was to seek as sistance from the government to tide them over, present difficulties to the time, which they are confident will come, when good returns are again obtained. The deputation was representative of settlers in a large area of mallee coun try, about 100 miles long, extending from Ouyen to the South Australian border.

tl|< 1{cu]tit|[! "frqalil. PUBLISHED EVKRY'THURSDAY MORNING THE COMING STRUGGLE. IMPORTANCE OF ORGANIS ATION. There are many Liberals who fail to realise the importance of organisation. Labor is always organised j there are more than four hundred thousand adult Unionists in the Common wealth, and the vast majority, practically the whole, of the Unions are. political bodies. Liberal organisation is difficult. The reason is simple, Liberalism stands for .the freedom of the individual. There is no particular class interest which binds Liberals together as Trade Unionists are united by' a desire to itiise their wages. At the present moment this question of organisation is of more than ordinary importance.
