GENERAL NEWS. Lieutenants Harrison and Petre, two aviators engaged by the Defence Department, made successful flights at the quarters of the aviation corps at Point Cook on both Saturday even ing and yesterday. Five machines were tested, and they behaved splend idly.

TRUE BLUE CATS WOMEN FANCIERS TRIUMPH. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 March 1914
TRUE BLUE CATS \VOM1EN FANCIERS TRIUMPH. The triumph of the true blue, of the real blue blood, was the distinguishing mark of the two days' cat show opened yesterday at the Horticultural Hall, Westminster (says "The Daily Mail" of January 9). It was the biggest show of cats ever held, and the blues were the biggest class. The blue cat was "'nvented" just thirty years ago by Miss Simpson and is a monument to the peculiar skill of women as fanciers. The blue was 'created" marvellously out of a com bination of black and white. At first the blues were also tabbies, but now these skilful 'vwomen fanciers have got rid of all tabby markings, and the blood is so blue that a blue cat always pro duces a blue, though now and again a little black blood is allowed. And very beautiful the blues are, .as well as true. CATS WITHOUT A FLAW. Tile judges, a majority of them women, wso posed the cats successively cn a green baize card-table and searched for both flaws and fakings, could find neither in...
MR CHAMBERLAIN AN IMPERIAL STATESMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 March 1914
I1R CHAMBERLAIN AN IMPERIAL STATESMAN. (By N. Murrell Marris, in "The Daily Express.") The retirement of Mr Chamberlain at the next general election from West Birmingham will mean that Birming ham working men have lost a personal friend. Not only in his own constitu ency is he regarded as "our member,' but throughout the city. He learned his political alphabet alongside working men from those early times when he started a debating club for the men in his own works, and was a constant attendant at the debates at Smethwick, profiting by thle criticisms of his own workmen. There was also the wonderful day's outing at the Crystal Palace in 1S74 which he gave to his workpeople when he retired from business. One of his staff told the writer that on coming to the sta tion after the special had started he found one poor woman who had been left behind in tears, and he took her up himself to the Palace. Before he became member lie learned the wants of the people in their daily lives, he visit...
INTERESTING STAMPS £20,000 COLLECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 March 1914
INTERESTINGI STAMIPS £20,000 COLLECTION. By Douglas B. Armstrong, in '"The Daily Express.") The beginning of a year is, appro priately enough, a favorite time for the issue of new postage stamps the world over, and a very considerable propor tion of the postal issue of the past have made their debut on January 1. The New Year of 1914 is likewise des tined' to bring in its train some. not able additions to the pages of the stamp album, although from a variety of causes it seems improbable that tithe new postage stamps issuod-- during the year will be anything like. equal to the soniewhat abnormal:output of 1913. This supposition is based on the fact that within the past twelve months the issue of Georgian postage stamps,- in place of those bearing the likeness of King Edward VII., by the' British do minions beyond the seas has been prac tically completed, and- most of the-Por tuguese and many of the French colo nies have been provided with new stamps, while countries like Japan, Chin...
FOG EXPERIENCE AT SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 March 1914
FO4 EXPERIIENCE AT SEA. (By Frederick Niven, in the "Daily News and Leader"). -'Firstly, you must have confidence in the Lcaptain. Secondly, you must allow the fatalist in you to speak a quiet w\ord-and then the fog becomes a rich experience. Under the bridge, on the upper deck. is perhaps the best place to enjoy it. From that vantage. peer ing down. you can just iake out. in the very bows, two look-out men, cran ing forward, muflled, hands deep in coat pockets, motionless. staring into the nipping grey vapor. They look like a new kind of figurehead. IUp in the fore crosstrees. in the look-out barrel, are two heads dimly seen, one on each side of the mast. each in the attitude of a short-sighted man peering into a small-print time-table on a wall. Step out from under the bridge and look up at it. The captain is canted against the front, coat-collar up. chin sticking out over the canvas dodger: at either end are sailors in the same at titude. Beside the little turret-like wheel-house...

THE WIND OF HOPE [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 March 1914
THE WIND OF HOPE (By James Douglas, in "The Daily 1 News and Leader.") Swinburne saw and sang "A Visiopn of Spring in Midwinter." Happy is the man who can always forget the past and the present and fix his gaze on the future. For him the darkest night aches with a future star. For him there is a budding morrow in every midnight. For him there is nothing irrevocable. Happiness is the art of looking forward. The other day I was walking on the wet sand along thle chilly merge of the grey December sea. My mood was cold and dark. The remembrance of suffer ing lay heavy on my- mind. I had no strength of joy in me to struggle with the harpies of gloom tearing at miy heart. Suddenly I felt on my face a little breeze blowing off the waves. It was like the caress of an angel. There was something animate in its poignant passion of tenderness. It brought me the message of miles of strong salt sea. It set every nerve tingling, and shud dering with delighted life. As the little wind from the sea ...

In the concluding passage , f the letter. Dr. Phelan refers to his approaching visit to Rome. The Bishop writes as follows:- We in this new Innd, who glory in the faith St. Patrick preached in Ire land. and glory in our connection with the Head of tile Church established by Christ, should not forget our obli gations in regard to the temporal wants of the HIoly See. Since ,the Pope was plundered (1S70) al' his temporal possessions, the sacred patrimoniy of Peter from the days of 'harlemagne, he has to depend entire ly on the offeritngs of the faithful to iceet the imlnense outlay necessarily involtved in the government of a worhl-wide kingdom.

COCOANUT GROWING PROFITABLE ENTERPRISE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 March 1914
COCOANUT GiROWINGi PROFITABLE ENTERPRISE. During the past few years (says "The Daily Telegraph") the constantly-rising price of the products of the cocoanut palm tree has not only attracted the :tt tention of tropical planters engaged in the production of the nuts and manu facturers in Europe and America who clnploy coccoanut-oil, or coir, In their industries, but also interested financiers desirous of finding new outlets for capital. The advance in prices have been phe llnominal. A very few years ago copra --that is, dried kernels of the cocoanut from which the oil is obtained-could be 1 bought at from £10 to £12 per ton. The market quotations yesterday for the L same article were from £30,15/ to £32 S18. per ton, an increase of nearly 300 per cent. In about ten years. The causes of this remarkable inflation are t not far to seek. It is simply due to I the fact that the production of cocoa r nuts is insufficient to keep pace with the world's demands. Cocoanut oil has Ilong been in ...
