Bush Fires in the South. LARGE AREAS DEVASTATED. Sydney, December 31. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Times — 1 January 1909
Bush Fires In the South &nbsp; LARGE AREAS DEVASTATED (By Telegraph from Our Correspondent.) Sydney, December 31. Bush fires again have broken out in the Gundagai district, and 5000 acres of land were devastated. The fire is four miles wide, and travelling fast in the direction of Colac and Gundagai. Hundreds of men are out saving stock, and doing all possible to pre- &nbsp; vent the spread of the flames. Melbourne, December 31. &nbsp; Bush fires broke out at Goomalifee, near Benalla. A thrasher was at work when a spark from the engine caused a fire, which speedily consumed 200 acres of grass, and a stack, repre- senting about 300 bags of grain. The fire travelled towards the Broken Riv- er, which effectually blocked its pro- &nbsp; gress. &nbsp;

A Racing Accident &nbsp; &nbsp; TRAINER DISQUALIFIED FOR LIFE. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; USING AN ELECTRIC APPLIANCE. &nbsp; (By Telegraph from Our Correspondent.) &nbsp; Perth, December 31. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The stipendary stewards have con- &nbsp; cluded a long inquiry into the circum- stances surrounding the accident which &nbsp; occurred during the running of the &nbsp; last race on Saturday, and which brought about the death of the jockey McDougall, who had the mount on &nbsp; the Wheel of Fortune. McDougall, it &nbsp; &nbsp; was found, was wearing an electric &nbsp; &nbsp; appliance. The stewards have come to &nbsp; the conclusion that the trainer of the horse direceted the use of the battery &nbsp; connected with the spurs, and they disqualified him for life for malpractice.

Federal Politics. A PROBABLE COALITION IN OPPOSITION TO THE LABOUR PARTY. RETURN OF MR. H. SINCLAIR, M.H.R. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Times — 1 January 1909
Federal Politics. —— : o : —— A PROBABLE COALITION IN OPPOSITION TO THE LABOUR PARTY. RETURN OF MR. H. SINCLAIR, M.H.R. Mr. H. Sinclair, M.H.R., who has been in the South for some months past, attending to his political duties, returned to Ipswich by the down Syd- ney mail train last night. He pur- poses visiting the sports at Sandy Gallop to-day. The members of Mr. Sinclair's family, who were in Mel- bourne for some little time, returned home about a week ago. When spoken to last night, on alight- ing from the train, respecting the Fed- eral political situation, Mr. Sinclair expressed himself as being hopeful that a coalition will be arranged between the three parties in the Federal House of Representatives who are op- posed to caucus rule. If this is ac- complished during the recess, it will, of course, mean that the position of the Government will be challenged on the address-in-reply.
SOME NEW YEAR THOUGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Times — 1 January 1909
SOME NEW YEAR THOUGHTS. " Give me health and a day," said Emerson, "and I will make the pomp of emperors ridiculous." This senti- ment crystallises a wholesome thought for the new year. What are the things that count in the daily life ? Emerson summed them up in the phrase "health and a day." In other words, given the blessing of good health and the opportunity to make use of it, and no human being can be counted as poor. It is the faculty of "making use" of opportunities that leads to success. What one man would regard as a favourable oppor- tunity another might look upon with contempt. Charles Kingsley said, "My father was a magnificent man in &nbsp; body and mind, and was said to possess every talent except that of using them." It is the talent of "making use" of time and opportun- ities that counts for so much. Sir Walter Scott's noble words, when fighting against adverse circumstances, will be remembered, " Time and I against the world" he said. Sir Wal- ter overcame hi...

Even heavy fines, however, did not seem to have the desired effect to pre- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; vent gambling.
