THE FEDERAL LAND TAX. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 14 February 1911
THE FEDERAL LAND TAX. To the Editor. S;Pj_Not having noticed reports .of a meeting or anything of a like nature of those landholders interested in the above tax I am afraid they are taking matters too easy ; and I beg through your columus to remind them°hata pennlty of £100 attaches to nearlect in sending in returns by 1st March. Returns are bothersome things to understand at anytime, and these are particularly of this des cription. And by the time one has worried through the 'advice' uent out by the Lands Department to ex plain what is required he will prob ably know less about it than ever 'and come to the conclusion that land values have 'slumped' consider ably. So I think they h;id better meet to discuss the matter at once. I fancy the chief difficulty will be found In arriving at a true unimproved value. Unless some uniform standard is arrived at locally, and the valuation of each man's land devolves upon himself, there is sure to be a great difference in the valuations sent to...
PAY, PAY, PAY, IF YOU SEEK POPULARITY. [TO THE EDITOR.] [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 14 February 1911
PAY, PAY, PAY, IP YOU SEEK POPULARITY. ? ' f To 'tub Editor.] An advertisement of thanks in your last week's issue by one. of the Candidates for the .recent Shire elec tions, causes one to consider whether there is not more monetary gain in being a ghire councillor than would appear on the surface. One can quite understand that it is a very convenient monetary institution for one or two of its members, but taking a general view of the thing it seems difficult to define why some of the hard headed and close fisted candi dates seek dec' ion at all. None of them are regarded by any mrans as philantrophisfcs, nor is it suspected that they think so, but what strikes me most iii the letter of thanks is— -*' I have never looked to sipport from any sect, society or clique.' Well, that is where the a«pi--ant for council ., lnnors made a blunder — unfortun- ately fo;1 the public nnd tfjeir pocketa. Ij^W churches, s'ttjelies, anil cliques ' play ft predominant part in all go vernme ital electi...
Boree Creek Farmers' Union. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 14 February 1911
Boree Creek Farmers' Union. _ The ordinary monthly meetiDg of this union was held at Lawrence's Hotel, Boree Creek, on Monday, 6th. instant. The chair was taken by Mr H. Griener, the president, and there were also present Messrs Joseph Hop wood, Geo. Gane, T. Morley, l'\ Orme, E. Kelly, S. R. Carrick, W. McDon ald, G. Brown, James Verdon, A.

ZIMBABWE AND THE SEMITES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 14 February 1911
ZIMBABWE AND THE SEMITES. Those Arabs who described Zim babwe to the Portuguese in the fifteenth century saw it, as we see it now, except that the main gate way of the elliptical temple was still standing; and they reported that there was above it an- inscription in characters which they could not tions have been found, it has been suggested that the chevron pattern was mistaken by them for one. Yet it is improbable that Arabs at all educated would have mistaken a common pattern for an inscription. Ruined buildings of the same char~ acter as these, though of less import ance, are found all over SouthEast ern ; Africa, from the Northern Transvaal to the Zambesi. Wher ever these are they seem .to be connected with gold-mining, either actual workings or. storage places or forts, and in most places is found gold left in the crucibles or scatter ed on the ground in the shape .of dust or small nails. These ancient gold-miners are said by experts to have extracted from one only of the gold...

The game 'consists of rolling the balls down the band into the pocket. Considerable skill of manipulation is required to keep the balls from run ning off the band.
Random Reading. INTERPLANETARY LIFE LINKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 14 February 1911
: Random Reading0, INTERPLANETARY LIFE LINKS. Spontaneous generation is re quired to complete the theory of or ganic evolution, and is, indeed, pos tulated as a logical necessity by many distinr'ished evolutionists. Yet the evif.V 6 is overwhelmingly against its occurrence at the present day, or in earlier times under simi lar conditions. Hence the sugges tion of Professor S. Arrhenius that life in the germ stage may pass from planet to planet is of consider able interest. If spontaneous gen eration is impossible on our planet under present conditions, may it not be taking place on some other, plan ets under different conditions? And if so, may not such spontaneously produced beings pass from their birthplace to the earth? Thus the elephant may be the last link of a chain derived from some lowly or ganism originating in Jupiter, while the primitive ancestor of the tiger may have come from Mars. If this could.be shown to be pos sible, or probable ; a great diffiiculty. would be remov...
THE SENSES OF THE BLIND. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 14 February 1911
THE SENSES OF THE BLIND. Some interesting remarks about the abilities and a correction of an erroneous idea concerning blind peo ple were made by Professor McKen drick, late of Glasgow University, in a speech at Aberdeen. ' Many blind people, he said, developed a marvellous faculty for music, which ' became not only a solace to them selves, but a source of enjoyment to others, and not a few develop a keen business faculty, and they were able to conduct complicated business affairs. When they saw what the blind could do they were prone to drop into ' the popular opinion that in the blind there is a compensation by the other sensees becoming . more developed. That was an erroneous opinion. Pro fessor Kunz, who was the director of the great institution- for the blind at Illzach-Mulhausen, investi gated this question with the aid of physiological methods by which the delicacy of the senses of the . blind could be accurately tested. He had examined in this way a large number of cases, an...
New, Odd, Interesting. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 14 February 1911
New, Odd, Interesting. ♦ King George has never been initiated as a Freemason. Pawnbrokers are not allowed to take wine, and spirits in pawn. A State grant of £50 an aero is mode for experiments in Irish-grown tobacco. The cost of the official history of the South African war is £331991 up to date. The Queen never accompanies her .husband to the establishment of a bachelor. Receipts from London tramways for the last financial year amounted to £1,967,949. Among the latest inventions is a machine which affixes stamps at the rate of 4,000 per hour. Last year 222,755 people left the United Kingdom for Canada, the Uni ted States and Australia. His Majesty's motor cars carry no number, and his chauffeurs are not amenable for exceeding the speed limit. Owing to the lack of farm hands in Austria, 'good conduct' conv'cts are being employed as agricultural laborers. The finest emeralds in the world are said to be those belonging to the Span ish Crown, and they are all of Ameri can origin. Fro'...
HIGHER EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 14 February 1911
HIGHER EDUCATION. 'Has your education given .you anything _to fall back upon when you are shut in or alone? Are you worth anything to yourself?' asked a professor in a great university of some who were leaving its halls as graduates. It was a shrewd ques tion, but a iair one of human ac quirement wherever gained. One chooses a companion for solitary hours' because of the qualities that will make him. useful and agreeable —for his cheerful disposition, his fund of information, his ability to find interest and occupation in what ever comes to hand, his power and willingness to entertain, and his freedom from moping and discon tent. Are you worth anything to yourself along these lines when you are thrown upon your own compan ionship? Has the mind its 'nest of pleasant thoughts' ? Can the heart keep warm, unselfish interest in the world's work from which it is forced apart ? Has the spirit so high and broad an outlook that it cannot be shut in.? These things are the higher education/^;....
ROUND THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 14 February 1911
ROUND THE WORLD. T What is the shortest time in which one can go round the world? Thirty-seven days, according to 'Travel and Exploration.' Owing to the recent improvements in the Trans-Siberian Railway Service, the journey between Vladivostock and Moscow having been accelerated twenty-four hours, it is now pos sible to get round the globe in thirty seven days. Supposing the pas senger leaves London on a Monday, he . would reach Yokohama on the second Monday after his departure, and by. talcing one of the fast steam ers of the Canadian Pacific Line (which leaves 'Vbkohama on a Tues day), Vancouver could be reached in twenty-six 'days from London, andj of course, ^t is easy enough if the steamers connect at New York, to reach London in eleven days after leaving Vancouver.' : Everything in excess is adverse to Jftturifc. - '? ...??? ?*...?? .:

TO HOLD THE VEIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 14 February 1911
TO HOLD THE VEIL. A number of clever expedients have been devised to hold a veil snugly under the chin without giving an ugly line. Here is one method which saves the veil also and involves hardly any trouble. Get the narrow est kind of round elastic the same colour as the veil, and whip it over the extreme edge of the veil, taking up only a single thread all around. Include any cut edges, but after wards pare them off neatly with a pair of scissors. Fasten in back with a tight knot. The veil is slight ly gathered on the clastic, fits nicely under chin and over hat, and stret ches when it is raised. It seems the best solution of a vexing prob lem of dress.
THE SCOFFING GIRL [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 14 February 1911
THE SCOFFING GIRL It may be a hurrying age, but one of its worst attributes is its levity ! The modern girl considers it smart to scoff at higher things and lack of reverence is noticeable, even where religion itself is concerned ! Now there is nothing a man ab hors more than want of reverence in a woman. He may scoff himself, he may be uncouth and careless ot tne amenities of life, but his womenfolk are set on a different plane in this re spect. Charm of manner, beauty of form or face, are wasted on a man when the lips utter profanities and the deeper spiritualities are lacking. If only girls realised this they would not be so glib with their tongues in scoffing. . Reverence for age is an attribute demanded of every woman, yet how often we find girls jeering and sneer ing at the failing capacities of older folk. It lowers a girl in her hearers' estimation, and violates the sanctity oi family ties. There is nothing more beautiful than honoured old age, and surely, those who have tro...
