Heckling the Engineer. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 26 February 1914
Heckling the Engineer. At the Wannon shire council meeting, Cr Broughton asked why . contracts were not out that day for the Balmoral riding. He wanted to know why the tenders were not called.--The engineer said there were two reasons. Firstly, he had been very busy travelling round. Secondly, he had gone over the work, but left his notes on the table in his room, when during repairs'they unfortunately became removed and could not at the time be found. It then became tbo late for tenders to be called. - Cr Broughton thought that explana tion .~very unsatisfactory. He maintained that the notes had no right to be lost sight of.-The president said he thought the en gineer should have attended to them.-The engineer: 'I have al ready explained that I have been over the vwork. My office is upset by repairs being done, and my notes were disarranged.-Cr Brou ghton said the engineer had pro mised him that the tenders would be in the paper. This sort of thing should not occur. Further, there ...
The Heart of a Girl (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER XII.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 26 February 1914
SThe Heart of a Girl By HENRY FARMER,. Author of "The Money-Lender," "12a Quiltry Street," "Bondage," etc. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER XH.-Continued. "Come out-and have a drink!" re peated Mr. Gordon Price, still mum bling. He, too, like Michael Thorne, had broken out into a perspiration. "We must talk it over-pull ourselves together-if I have erred, it has been for Queenie-for my che-ild's sake!" -But Mr. Gordon Price was thinking of the pension he would be entitled to as Michael's father-in-law, to say no thing of useful information re copper. No marriage, no pension, no comfort able old age. Tad that telegram reached Queenie, there would have been no marriage on the morrow. Both men knew that. Even now "Come outside!" whispered Thorne. "Drink-no-you've had too much al ready!" They went out together, Mr. Price hatless. Thorne's car stood at the door, out they did not enter it, crossing over to the prom nade. "You share the responsibility of this!" said Thorne. "Yes-as her-fathe...

DON'T NEGLECT. A COMMON CASE OF PILES. IT MAY LEAD TO SERIOUS RESUL. When. people generally understand that all such fatal diseases as fistula, ulcer of the rectum, fissure, etc., almost invariably be. gin in a simple case of piles, they will learn the wisdom of taking prompt treatment for the first appearance of this trouble. Doan's Ointment is- unequalled for every form of Piles. Itching, Bleeding, Protruding, and Blind Piles, and hundreds of lives have been saved by using this cheap but effective - remedy right at the start, because at such times a single pot has often effected a cure, while in the old, deep-seated chronic cases .... several pots are sometimes necessary. Here is a case : Mr E. Carroll, James-street, Port Fairy, says :-" For a number of years I have been using one remedy after another, trying to find a remedy for itching piles. I don't know much about medicine, but I know that Doan's Ointment cured me after everything else had failed. I had endured great torments ...

This Formula Really Makes Hair Grow. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 26 February 1914
This Formula Really Make Hair Grow. -0 Some time ago I read in a par a formula for a preparation whid was claimed to destroy the dandrd germ and to strongly stimulate t hair growth. In spite of theact that I had already tried many pri parations without benefit, andni hair was thin and falling out ver fast, I decided to give the fornnl a trial. Accordingly, I got an chemist to put up 3 ounces of By Rum, 1 ounce of Lavona de Cord possee, and 3? dram of Ment'd Crystals, and applied it regularly etrery morning and night, rubbhin carefully into the scalp with th finger tips. Much to my deligh and astonishment the 'intolerabl itching ceased with the first app' ca., i, the dandruff disappeared the falling out of the hair stoope completely, and by the time I ha used four bottles I had a finE, .longer, and more luxuriant growft of hair than I ever had before. I have since recommended this for. mula to many of :my friends wit equally wonderful results. I understand that ,this formula.c be pre...

THE DUKE'S DEAL OBJECT LESSON FOR LONDONERS [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 26 February 1914
THE DUKE'S DEAL -- OBJECT LESSON FOR LONDONERS (By Howard Evans in "The Daily News.") I always had a kindly feeling for the great Ducal House of Bedford, for I know no other house that occupies such a distinguished place in the annals of our country. It was a Russell who expended his labor and his wealth in draining the vast fen lands, known as the Bedford level; it was a Russell who laid down his life on the scaffold in Lincoln's Inn- Fields in defence of English liberty; it was a Russell who was one of the foremost in ridding the nation of the Stuart Kings; it was a Russell who commanded our fleet in the decisive victory of La Hogue. In more recent times it was a Russell who carried the first Reform Bill, and throughout his long life was a staunch champion of civil and religious liberty. The present Duke of Bedford has done a public service by giving an ac count of the stewardship of himself and his predecessors by the book which he published a few years ago, called "The Story of ...
LONDON'S GREETING CAUTION BEFORE CORDIALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 26 February 1914
LONDON'S (iREETINu CATUTION BEFORE CORDIALITY. London receives the Man from Over sea like a coy maiden being intro duced to her brother's pal (writes "A Visiting Australian" in "The Daily Chronicle.") She's not going to take any risks. She holds him at arm's length. to inspect him and watch him wriggle, and then, if he makes the right impression, she may find a cor dial place for him. The colonial does pretty well wher ever he goes (they tell me), because he has developed in him that utter lack of respect for respected tradi tions. He is like the American com mercial traveller-he can be relied upon to "butt in." But the colonial usually does it very nicely. He ap proaches a situation circu.mspectly, and when the band begins to, play, if he isn't right up alongside the stand ard-bearer or geting choice secrets from the drum-major, he is a most disappointing sort of colonial. Nevertheless, among the many men I have known in the Antipodes who have come to London, there have been quite ...
A GREAT HISTORICAL WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 26 February 1914
A GREAT HISTORICAL WORK. By the publication of what has been happily described " in the preface as "the birth certificates of a nation," the library com mittee of the Commonwealth Parlia ment has inaugurated the collected publication of the Historical Records of Australia. These "birth certtfi cates" consist of a series of litho graphs of original documents connect ed with the foundation of settlement and the establishment of Government and civilisation in Austral!a. First we have the oaths of office taken by Cap tain Phillip with all the quaint archaic phraseology of the period. To readers of the twentieth century .he sug gestions of the dynastic and sectar-ian struggles through which the nation had recently passed, and whch were still agitating men's minds, must seem strange as they are discl ied in 'the curious special oaths of abjuration and abjurance Governor Phillip and his officers had to take. Replicas of official documents connected with tho establishment of the church, our...
CONCERNING A LOAN MONEY-LENDERS' CHARGE [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 26 February 1914
CONCERNING A LOAN MONEY-LENDERS' CHARGE At the instance of a money-lender, Mr Daniel Win. Cartan-Lee, barris ter-at-law, of Paper Buildings, Temple, was sulnmoned at Bow street yesterday (reports "The Daily Mail," December 19) for obtaining credit for more than £20 without disclosing the fact that he was an undischarged bankrupt. It was alleged that in negotiating a loan of £400 (for which, a bill for £500 payable in six months was given) the defendant told the money-lender, a MIr Swyers, that he had not been bankrupt. The bill, had not been met. Mr Swyei-s,. in cross-examination by MIr Huntley Jenkins, admitted that a statement in a circular he issued that he was "a retired business gentle man" was not true. Some of the testimonials in the circular were ficti tious. He had not said to a Mr Bal lantyne that all he wanted was to revenge himself on an Englishman as he had a brother-in-law who had been deported. "Truth" had de scribed him as "One of those harpies who bleed would-be bor...
DRINK AND DRIVERS' WITS [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 26 February 1914
DRINK. AND DRIVERS' WITS -A. verdict of "Manslaughter" was re turned yesterday by the Coroner's jury at the inquest on the two victims of the motor-lorry accident in the Old Kent road .last week (reports "The Daily News," December 9). The jury expressed the opinion that the driver of the lorry, a man named George Clevett, "drove at a rapid speed whilst under the influence of drink." Several witnesses described the pace of the lorry (a brewery vehicle) as ex cessive or reckless, but one witness, an:. L.C.C. tram conductor, did not con sider that the driver was to blame; while others declared that he did his best to avoid an accident. Interesting evidence was given in support of the allegation that Clevett was under the influence of drink. A constable who arrested him after the accident declared that the man was drunk-that he was very unsteady, smelt strongly of drink, and was very thick in his speech. Another police wit ness added that Clevett looked dazed. He did not attribute his c...

FINGER=PRINT SYSTEM IDENTIFICATION RECORD. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 26 February 1914
FINNER-PRINT SYSTEM IDENTIFICATION RECORD. English detectives are astonished by the fact that, though the Paris police were in pcssession of an infallible clue, in the form of a finger-print on tile glass of the discarded frame, to the identity of the man who stole "La Gio conda," from the Louvre two years ago, no arrest was made until last Friday (says "The Daily Mail" of December 16). "In France," said a prominent au thority yesterday, "although the police take finger-prints, they depend chiefly on physical measurements, which they classify and file. If they arrest a man they can by his measurements identify him with former crimes, but they are somewhat at sea unless an arrest has been made. In England the finger-print is the chief form of identification; the ordinary measurements are taken, but they are of secondary importance. Give us a fair finger-print, and if the maker of that print has been in the hands of the police before we can in 999 cases out of 1000 tell you who he is....
COSTLY ROYAL HABITS [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 26 February 1914
COSTLY ROYAL HABITS The Bavarian Finance Minister, In supporting a motion for the increase of the Bavarian King's Civil List to £270,000, observed, according to Dr Mullermeiningen, who opposed the vote (says the Berlin correspondent of "The Daily Mail"), that the expenses of the royal shoots were not excessive, and it was better that royalty should shoot and hunt than run after Venus, which was still a more expensive oc cupation. Dr Mullermeiningen pro tested against the assumption that royalty must have expensive habits Sand that it is better to choose the less of two evils. "These are hard times for everybody," he declared, "and the Court must be sparing too."
