FLYING IN EXCELSIS. WHAT ENGLAND IS DOING. A DAY AT AN AERODROME. AIR-JAUNTS FOR THE PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 15 July 1914

FLYING IN EXCELSIS. WHAT ENGLAND IS DOING. A DAY AT AN AERODROME. AIR-JAUNTS FOR THE PEOPLE. There is no doubt that we shall have aerial vessels of the heavier than-air type of the size of ships, carrying many hundreds of pas 1 sengers. They will cross the Atlantic in a day with the safety and certainty of express trains. I hope to cross to New York in this way j- iqyself one day. i: —Claude Grahame-Wliite.: This is what Mr. Claude Grahame White, one of Britain's first and best aviators, and n<Jw the managing direc tor 01' the .London Aerodrome at Hen uon, in the north-west of London, says in one of the programmes of racing connected with that venture. He says other.. things in the programme. But it is not so much what he says that must appear startiingiy novel to far away Australians as what is con tained ' in that programme. There are 16' pages of ic. It costs twopence. But it is surely the most revolution ary programme in the world, just as Hendon is the most revolutio...

MOE RIFLE CLUB. ANNUAL REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 15 July 1914

MOE RIFLE CLUB. ANNUAL REPORT. The Following report (held over from last issue) was presented at the annual meeting of the above, held on Monday, 6th inst. :— Gentlemen,—In presenting you with our report ot' the working of the Moe Rifle Club for the year ending..Tune 30, 1914, we wish first to call attention to the great loss the club has sustained during the year by the death of your late secretary (Mr F. Bliss), who was at all times a tower of strength to the club. It is pleasing to note that increased interest is being taken by the members in rifle shooting. During the year, the club took part in 13 matches, of which three were won and 10 lost; and, although the record might have been better, the matches were contested in" a friendly and enjoyable manner. The annual contest for the V.R.A. medal resulted in a win for Mr E. Hunter, with a score of 200 out of a possible 225. During the year, a number of trophies were generously donated by supporters of the club, and provided interes...

Consolation. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 15 July 1914

Consolation. They were a newly-married couple. (This story is intended for the peru sal of elderly readers only.) She met him on the doorstep, and took his umbrella and his hat from him, but as he followed her into the dining-room he observed that there was some thing amiss. "Harold," she said, "how can I break the news to you?" "I hope," he replied, with visions of his account with the' stores, "the ser vant has not ibeen breaking anything more expensive than news." "No, no," she replied. "She has not broken anything that matters— only the cut-glass salad (bowl; three tumblers, and a water-bottle. What I have to tell you is that there are no sweets for dinner. I have been the victim of a terrible accident." He went over to her with all the grace of the hero of a serial story, and smoothed her golden locks. "Yes," she said, "I made some beau tiful fruit tarts for dinner, but the mice got into the pantry and ate them all up." "Dear, kind-hearted little girl," he murmured, "I always k...

STATE POLITICS. MK. RANKIN AT HILL END. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 15 July 1914

STATE POLITICS. MK. RANKIN AT HILL END. Mr H. Rankin, a candidate for the "Walhalla seat—in opposition to the sitting member, Mr S. Barnes—ad dressed a meeting at Hill End a few nights since. There was an attendance of about 20 residents. At the outset, the speaker said the j mental question that they would probably' ask was—" If you are a Liberal, why are you out in opposition to another Liberal, who is supporting a Libera] Government ?" His answer to that was that he believed the present Ad ministration had forfeited the confidence of the country. Mr Watt had prided himself on being the leader of a Country Ministry. This State was fitted by nature and circumstance for the produc tion of primary products—so much so, that the employment of a given amount of capital and a given energy applied to the soil would produce more wealth than any other portion of the globe. It was owing to this fact that a higher standard of living is possible here than elsewhere. This being the case, it was...

MR. BIRRELL'S GHOST STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 15 July 1914

MR. BIRRELL'S GHOST STORY. Mr. Birrell told a ghost story at the Bristol Press Fund dinner, when re sponding to the toast, "literature and Journalism." In referring to a recent speech by Dr. Silvanus Thompson on the importance of science, Mr. Birreli said:— "I don't know, my Lord Mayor, whether you. ever have toad dreams, but I have been haunted ever since I was almost a boy by the constant re petition of one and the same dream. "It comes to me again and again. It is this. I dream I am walking about somewhere in some plain or de sert, and I suddenly encounter the agitated ghost of Sir Isaac Newton. He approaches me, his eye almost starting out of his head; he tells nfb who he is, and how ignorant be is of all that has happened in the world of science since he left. " 'Now,' he says, 'I want you to tell me in a few words—for I have only a quarter of an hour left—all that has happened to the race; the progress.. How is it? I know what it was when I left it. What is it now?' "My heart ...

BILLIARDS. THE LARKIN TOURNAMENT. [By Baulk-Line.] It is estimated that the largest crowds that have ever adorned a billiard-room in Moe by their pres ence have been eclipsed by the gatherings at the Moe Hotel during the past and present weeks.

Appended are the results of the first round :— . Wednesday's games :—P. Hewat (scr.) de feated E. Schmidt (rec. 20) by 99—Hewat made a nice break of 24 ; W. Parker (scr.) defeated C.

HOLY TRINITY CHURCH OF ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 15 July 1914

HOLY TRINITY CHURCH OF ENGLAND. It is about 20 years since—as near as we can tell without consulting our files—that the Church of'England was founded at Moe. The contract for the erection of the building was let to Messrs Calvert and Smith (Yarragon), the Rev. C. J. Chambers being then in charge of the District. The build ing had no ante rooms, and was—for want of funds—lined to a height of only about 5ft. from the floor—the only lining that was done. Since then, various improvements have been effec ted. The "work of lining was com pleted, the grounds fenced, a vestry added, a bell erected, lighting plant installed, and other works carried out. These, however, were not considered in keeping with requirements and the importance of the town. The bell erected in the first instance was sub stituted by another (larger) one, which was placed above the vestry, and later on, it was agreed to under take improvements on a much larger scale. The vestry was removed from the southern end to the ...
