THE NEW MINING FIELD. Mr. Ewen 31' Millan writes as. fol lows on the new field that is being opened up in thb Genoa district: The locality of the" find is about N.E. of the WVingan oridge.. The first lease is situated about 1% miles from the 73-mile peg on the Orbost-Genoa road. This show is small and poor. Thero is another show about I1, miles south of this right on top of. Stony Peak, which is the highest peak on the range. The reef is also small, but shows gold :in mortar test. The country rock is granite, and the reef= are running east -and west, and un&. orlie to south. In my opinion the ree?. are lenticular and very short.

LOST GOLF BALLS [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 March 1914
LOST GOLF BALLS. Whose property is a lost golf ball? Recent magisterial decisions on the point (says "The Daily News and Leader" of December 27) have been somewhat mixed, and Judge Parry has a witty summing-up of some of them in the January number of "The Corn hill" magazine. "A golf ball, I take it," he writes, "is the subject of ownership, although the ownership is of a very fleeting and pre carious nature. "The golf ball washed up on the sea shore and found as you take your Sun day stroll upon the beach I take to be a ,Wreck de Mer, being undoubtedly in the last instance ejectum maris. "Personally," he confesses, "the kind of ball that I tee up at the tenth at Llandudno or the sixth at Newquay, or at any seaside hole, is a wreck be fore it starts, but once driven the ship wreck is generally complete. And when such goods are cast upon the land by the sea and left there within some county, It seems that they belong to the King by his prerogative as Lord of the Narrow Seas. or perha...
EMPIRE HARBORS [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 March 1914
EMPIRE HARBORS Lord Pirrie has submitted to the Do minions Royal Commission an interest ing memorandum on the development of Imperial and other harbors from the point of view of shipowners and ship builders (says "The Daily Telegraph" ,f January Si. He entirely adheres to the views he expressed to the Select 'ommittee on steamship subsidies, in 1902. as to the desirability of providing deep approaches to the chief harbors of the l?npire. Alluding to develop ments which have taken place since then. Lord Pirrie refers to the "admir hble scheme' in process of execution in the Port of London, but expresses the rear that at the present rate of progress it will be quite inadequate by the time it is completed. With regard to other large ports, he mentions that the entrance of Port Phillip, at Melbourne. Is steadily, if slowly, being deepened, but concerning two other important trade centres, namely, the St. Lawrence and the River Plate, there is little progress to record. "The Commission w...

BANANAS AND TOMATOES DIET IN WINTER. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 March 1914
BANANAS AND TOMATOES DIET IN WINTER. Neal street, Long-acre (says 'The Daily Telegraph" of January 9),Is not an attractive thoroughfare. Narrow, dark and cheerless, frequently crowded and noisy, such is this passage connectinlg Wiovent-garden with the aristocratic neighborhood of Bloormsbury. Yet at times the place is interesting to those who like to study many places of Lon don life. In the little street may be seen, at times, hundreds of costermUon gers, intent on securing supplies of fruit. It is an anxious, busy throng: each menlber of the fraternity waiting impatiently to be served. As a rule it is in the summer that this rialto is most thickly populated, that being the season when the demand for fruit is greatest. Seldom throughout the winter months are scenes of extraordinary activity witnessed ill that obscure corner, but tile beginning of the present week proved to be a notable exception. Early on Monday morning Neal street was crowded with men whose facial expres sions bet...
