A NEW ERA IN THE FAR EAST. The Fight for Commercial Supremacy. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 22 August 1914
A NEW ERA IN THE FAR EAST. The Fight for Commercial Supremacy. Mr. T. F. .Millard's study of the Far East,- c"ntained in his book;, "America ahd the Far Eastern Ques tion," recently published in New York is dominated by two opposite notes, pessimism and a story of progress.. H-e regards the situation that has. arisen since the close of the Russian war with alarm ; the Japancse commercial policy -in Manchuria iu creating a situation whb'ch may re-. stlt in war between Japan and America ? he has nothing but crit.i&lt; cism for the existing state of affairn in Korea ; he is convinced that Ja ran aims at the domination of c'hina. And yet,- despite all this, he has to tell of world advance. A new Asia has arisen,, an Asia growing daily more and more conscious of her own strength. MUKDEN.

PUBLICATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 22 August 1914
PUBLICATIONS, The interest of the new feature intro duced in the previous issue is more than maintained in the August Windsor Mag agine. The second complete story. in Justus Miles Forman's- new series of diplomatic life is entitled 'The Duel by the Bosphorus' and is one of the most dramatic and impressive things that this favourite novelist has yet done. Sir II. Rider Haggard's absorbing romance from the career of Alan Quarter main, 'The Holy Flower,' reaches a stage from which every reader must eagerly pursue the remainder of that stirring narrative. The historical romance of 'The White Horse' is carried onward by HalIiwell Sutcliffe in his most attractive manner. The well-known cricketer, Mr M. G. Bird, contributes a chatty paper on the question of matting wickets compared t o grass, which is illustrated from very good photographs of distinguished players.
THE HUNGARIAN GENTLEMAN FARMER. Most Contented Individual in the World. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 22 August 1914
THE HUNGeARIAN e 2la?t.-tciAN FARMER. Most Contented Individual in the World. Writing on "The Hungarian Gen tleman Farmer," in the '" Windsor," Baroness Orczy says : "He is the most contented indivi dual in the world, in spite of - the fact, or because he knows absolutely nothing of what is going on around him. He does just read his news paper which arrives daily from B:1 da-Pesth, and has vague ideas that all Austrians are thieves and scoun drels, and that therefore a union with Austria is necessarily fatal to Hungary; but, as a matter of fact, the political situation of his country does not interest him in the least ; it does not affect the richness of his wheat- or the weight of his maize heads. "A keen sportsman, he is unbam pered by any game la?s. In Ilva gary no one is allowed to cacry a gun unless he owns so much laud, and the owner of land-and therefore of game--naturally makes his own laws for its preservation. "His chief characteristic is hospi tality, almost barbaric in i...
Dr Fitchett on the War. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 22 August 1914
Dr Fitchett on the War. No one knows the.'battle grounds of Europe better than Dr Fitchett, the author of ' How England Saved Europe,' &c? and his summary in 'Life' for Sep tember of the events of the present calmitous outbreak among the nations is dheply interesting and instructive. Taking the Austrian attack upon Servia as the starting point, he emphasises the folly of the aged Austrian Emperor in forcing Austria's quarrel with Servia and kindling among the nations so gigantic a conflagration. ' But behind the personal causes of the war stand the two dim vast shapes of a Pan-Slav League and a Pan German League,' writes Dr Fitchett. 'This is the real cause of the conflict, the inexpiable feud betwixt Slav and Teuton.' Maps and diagrams add to the interest of this summary, and a powerful cartoon by Nuttall lends force to it. ` Life' devotes a portion of its space to a diary of the war, amd announces this as the first of a number of war issues. 'Life' has secured from Sir Dou...

Original Poetry. SONS OF EMPIRE, Thy flag, Auistralia proudly waves Her azure folds above the free, And shall to foemen and to knaves Her stars an easy target be ? . While facing, breast to breast, the .foe, We, sons of Empire, thunder ' No U' My country, we Who bear thy name From ocean unto ocean far, Shall we, -now Britain's zoned with flame, Look calmly on while dogs of war, Fierce springing, strive to lay her low ? We, sons of Empire. thunder ' NQ!' United all no power can shake, Or bow our Empire's noble form. We've slept in peace. Awake, awake . The lull has passed; now brave the storm. Hurrah ! We fear no foreign foe; We, sons of Empire, thunder 'No [' Great Britain's foes crouch round about, Arise, arise, and let them feel, 'Midst.cannon's roar and battle shout, Australia's trusty blades of steel. Shall Britain reel in shame andwwoe? We, sons of Empire, thunder ' No 1' Australians, trust the Arm that gave The victory when to Afric's shore We sent our gallant sons and brave; ...
SOME PLEASANT TATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 22 August 1914
SOME PLEASANT TATTLE, "Some men," seays a Wdtele in a home journal, in disclosing 'tricks' of the l furnishing trade, 'can take new furniture and make it look as if it was made a century ago.' But there is nothing remarkable in this. AA intelligent a child. can do the same. "I believe," says Mr. William Poel, "that in 300 years Mr. Bernard Shaw's writings will still interest people." Mr. Shaw himself, however regards Mr. Poel's estimate as an ~.bsurdfy tnoderate one. "All a woman asks is to be loved," says a poet. Then all those tales about her wanting new frocks, motor. ears, and unlimited jewellery .are a vile slander. "Take away woman," says an ar sent "votes-for-women" supporter inr pae of the dailies, "and what would follow ?" Why, man, of course. Atl Irish M.P. is: Well remembered for his first and only oratorical ef fort f? the House. On rising, he de alared with due solemnity. "Mr. Speaker, I cannot sit still here and keep silent without rising and saying s few words." 'I kn...

Recipet. toId cream Is often useful for rougli ness of the skin. A very good teooipe fo£ making it is the following :-Take a quar ter of an ounce of white wax and shred it into a basin, with one ounce of almond oil. Place the basin by the fire until the wax is dissolved; then add very slowly one ounce of rosewater, little by little, and meanwhile beat smartly with a fork, to make the water incorporate, and con tinue beating till it is accomplisbed; then pour into jars ready for use. Veal Broth is very nourishing, and l9 generally most acceptable to invalids. Take two pounds of knuckle of veal, cut the meat up small, and break the bone in pieces. Place it in a stewpan with half an onion, half a head of celery, three long pepper and a tiny piece of lemon peel. Pour over all three pints of cold water.

REMEMBER WHEN YOU GET CLEMENTS TONIC YOU GET HEALTH TOO! A PROFESSIONAL NURSE well known throughout Western Australia, writes her opinion. NURSE ALICE WILKINSOf, 21 Hyde Street, Nth; Perth, sends this letter : " I have spent many years in my profession as a nurse, both here and in Victoria. I have nursed the sick of all descriptions, and some have been very low and weak. The question always arises in the mind of the nurse what is the best medicine for a patient when thoroughly run d6wn or to keep them from getting low and prostrated. Fromyears of experience and close observation I can say I know of no me2icine as good as CLEMENL TONIC as a nerve food- and appetising medicine, creating a desire for nourishment. It quickly gives health and strength.. (Signed) NURSE WILKINSON." No truerr fater was ever written to women than this one, proving the healthful properties of this remarkable medicine.

THE FARM. THE INCOME-BEARING VALUE OF A SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 22 August 1914
THE FARM THE JNCOME-BEARING VALUE OF A SHEEP. To ascertain what a sheep will re turn annuall3 to a farmer is not an easy matter, for there are so many considerations involved : The particu lar breed of sheep used according to the class of country -and climate; the price of wool and of mutton; proximity to market, etc. We have all kinds of climate here. Open and well sheltered country with a mild climate will show a high lambing percentage, bushfelled farms and rough runs with a severer climate will return a les sened and cheaper type of wool in the former case, and a smaller lambing percentage in both cases. In some provinces, again, quite a number of back-country graziers make a special ity of rearing, store animals for sale to the sheep fattening farmer of the richer land more adjacent to market. On the top of this there are good and bad seasons, which may easily affect the returns. There may be said to be five kinds of sheep farming carried on in New Zealand : S(1). The mixed far...
TO KILL PENNYROYAL. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 22 August 1914
TO KILL PENNYROYAL. It is reported ,that a well-known Toko settler has introduced into his district an efficacious anfd inexpen sive destroyer of penny,-royal, a weed which, on account of its rapid spread ing habit, and the impossibility hitherto of eradicating it by grub bing, pulling or other known means, has been a source of annoyance and lose to the settlers in many distriots. The cure is Cooper's or Little's powder dip. The means of applica tion is simply to place, say, a third of a packet of the powder in a sugar bag, fasten the bag at the end of a light pole six or eight feet in length and shake over the patches affected by the weed until the yellow tinge of the powder is discernible upon the leaves. A single packet will cover a very considerable area, and a boy can do the work. In abobt a week the plants are quite brown and with nut life. 1936.

Tel ephone Service. At a former council meeting,. the annoyance caused, subscribers of the telephone service in Queenscliff through delay and inattention, was referred to, and it was resolved to place the matter before the post master, which was accordingly done, and the following reply has been received: S'In reply to your communication of the 21st July re complaints received of delays and inattention regarding the 'phone service, I have gone carefully inxto the matter since receipt of your ,letter.
