WELTER CHAMPIONSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

WELTER CHAMPIONSHIP. oonnny Summers has lost his title of welter-weight champion of the British Em pire. Tom M'Cormick, his fellow countryman, | getting a doubtful verdict over him at the I Sydney Stadium on January 10. Summers, however, retains the Lord Lonsdale belt until defeated in England. The contest was a hard one all through, fighting being more in evidence than box ing, but it was not so good a display as might have been expected in a champion ship bout. Summers, though in a healthy condition and as pugnacious .as ever, seemed to be a little short of his old dash, while M'Cor mick did not prove himself a wonderful boxer. English sporting writers declare that he is speedy, but his hitting powers are not extra ordinary. i M'Cormiek's ribs were looking sore before six rounds had gone, but he had the satisfac tion of almost closing Summers' left eye in the eighth with a stiff right. Summers de | served it, as he grew disdainful of M'Cor miek's light blows, and frequently allowe...

FORETELMXG WEAT5IEH PREPARATION OF FORECASTS In the United States the Postal De partment, working: in conjunction pwith the Meteorological Bureau, circulates among farmers and settlers in remote districts forecasts of weather condi tions.

Vice-president of the Executive Council, as representative of the Postal Department in the Senate, promised to call the atten tion of Mr. Wynne, Postmaster General,. to the subject, which, in his opinion, had a great deal to commend it.

Twenty-seven boats bad entered for tlie event, and, with the ex ception of four, they all started.

CONCERNING STOCKINGS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

I ■ " ! CONCERNING STOCKINGS It is safe to say that no other house hold task consumes more time than does the darning- of the family stock ings. Especially if there are many little ones the. work1 sometimes assumes gigantic proportions. It is one of the things that cannot be hurried and be done satisfactorily. Why not elimin ate as much of it as possible? | A point the purchaser should keep in mind in buying hosiery is that it should have reinforced toes, heels and tops. If finished with an ordinary hem, sewed instead of knit in place, the chances are that holes and rents will be common. Seamless stockings may be had, and they are very satisfactory, not being liable to rip. Silk stockings are unquestionably a luxury. If you indulge in this extrava gance, however, it is well to buy those which have cotton or lisle feet and tops- Thus t.M parts subjected to the: greatest strain are protected (says the5 "Pictorial Review"). Not the least important in this mat ter of conserving the fami...
