PRICES AND WAGES FOOD PRICES INDEPENDENT OF PAY [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 March 1914

PRICES AND WAHES FOOD PRICES INDEPDNDENT OF PAY (By L. G. Chiozza Money, in "Daily News and Leader.") Staring out at me from the columns of a daily newspaper, published as the considered utterance of a member of Parliament, I see a statement to the effect that if the wages of British work men were doubled to-morrow, the change would be of no value to them because the prices of commodities would rise in the same proportion, and there fore they would be no better off than before. It is necessary to take serious note of this statement, because I find it is the expression of an opinion which Is widely held up and down the United Kingdom at the present time. This opinion has gained ground because of the reaction in prices which has taken place during the last half generation. Because that rise in prices has can celled the value of the rise in wages in the same period, people have jumped to the conclusion that higher wages and higher prices are necessary concomi tants of each other. It is...

THE RABBIT PEST. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 March 1914

THE RABBIT PEST. It is pleasing, says the "Journal,' to note that the landowners in the Traralgon and other Gippsland dis tricts are taking concerted action to prevent the spread of rabbits. And action is being taken none too soon. A few years ago there was hardly a rab bit to be found this side of the Haunt ed Hills, but to-day odd ones are to be seen on nearly every property in the Traralgon district. They do not take long to multiply, and the sooner they are exterminated the better for all concerned. It would never do to let them obtain the hold they have in the Omeo district, but there is a little ex cuse for the landowners there, for the country is very mountainous, and ex tremely hard to wire-net. There is no excuse for the local landowners if the rabbits get the best of them. T1 have had ample warning. and tih spector (Mr. O'Connell) has A best to instruct them as to means of eradicating the spite of this, there are sol landowners, who have not finger in the crusade against b...

The Great Montamor Case. CHAPTER XIV. At the Cottage. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 March 1914

The Great Montamor Case. By ALICE 31. DIEHL, Authoress of "The Knave of Hearts," CHAPTER XIV. At the Cottage. Meanwhile, the returned heir wait ed in the miniature drawing-room. He moved about his close quarters like a Polar bear in his cage-alternately puzzled, angry, miserable, hopeless. Netta loved him, he told himself. She had loved him before the great shock of a contest for her, more un scrupulous, more terrible than the struggle of two men loving one girl is wont to be in civilised times. She had loved him still when he had to make his confession-a confession not only of the evil accruing to his own passions, but to those of his rival. But had she ever been again the same bright, lovely Netta of the first happy days at the farm? "Never," he thought. She had seemed to recover from the first shock of his revelations. In any case, she had submitted to his wishes--had given her promise to be his wife; nor had she-spotless, innocent of all worldly desires-been in the least de gree...

EDWIN DROOD MYSTERY A DICKENS TRIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 March 1914

EDWIN DROOD MYSTERY A DICKENS TRIAL. Was Edwin Drood murdered? That problem of the story which Dickens left half told has for forty years engaged the ingenuity of all sorts and conditions of men (says "The Daily Telegraph" of January 8.) Scholars and men of sci ence have tried their hands at solving it to produce all sorts of wonderful theories as to what happened and how it happened. We all love a murder mystery. Whatever else you may think of the book, there is no lack of the mys terious in the tale of Edwin Drood. To publish all the secrets, there was a wonderful attempt last night. The Dickens Fellowship put John Jasper upon his trial for the murder. The judge was Mr G. K. Chesterton and the fore man of the jury Mr Bernard Shaw. King's Hall was the court of assize. Witnesses and officers of the court put themselves into the picturesque habil ments of the "sixties." Side whiskers and long hair, chignons and poke bon nets adorned the scene. The gentleman of the jury, however-Mr Be...

FORTY AND ON PROBLEM OF MIDDLE-AGED MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 March 1914

FORTY AND ON PROBLEM OF MIDDLE-AGED MAN. (By E. Clephan Palmer, in "The Daily News and Leader.") The other day I tried to cheer up an unhappy man, a man of forty. I no ticed when he sat down that he seemed to be in pain, and I asked him what was wrong. "Stiff," he said. "so sctlf that I can't move," and he groaned as lie carefully lifted one leg over the other. Then he looked up and said sadly: "I was forty yesterday, and I tried to have my revenge by playing a game of hockey. I could feel golf creeping over me, and I thought I'd try to stave it off. So I played centre f,,rward, and played hard, though I felt like dropping. The result is that to-day I'm sixty and doomed-doomed to play golf." "But is golf so bad?" "Bad! Of course it is. I feel it gaining on me like a disease. I tell you I don't want to play golf. I don't wanlt to btecome a mere stick-swinger, a grubber in bunkers, a haunter of clubl-house arm-chairs. For all these years I've kept clear of it. And.now. I'm done. Anoth...

AGE OF STRAWBERRY PLANTS. PLAINTIFF RECOVERS £175. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 March 1914

AGE OF STRAWBERRY PLANTS. PLAINTIFF RECOVERS £175. An action was dealt with in the Melbourne County Court last week by Judge Box, in which William Donald, of Bayswater, orchardist, was plain tiff, and Joseph Oscar Laurent, of Lucknow, farmer, defendant. Plain tiff claimed £499 damages for alleged false representations made by defend ant. Plaintiff's case was that he was in duced to enter into an agreement, dated 2nd May, 1913, to purchase for the sum of £725 a plot of land at Bayswater upon the representation that there were 80,000 strawberry plants there in the second year of growth. The fact, however, was that there were only about 10,000 plants,. which were between the sixth and eighth years of growth. The place was advertised, and there was named amongst the improvements, "80,000 strawberries, second year." Defendant gave evidence that the strawberry plants were in their se cond to fourth years of growth. He understood when he bought the pro perty in July, 1911, that the origina...

LATE QUEEN OF SWEDEN [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 March 1914

LkATE QUEE:N 01:' SW 1?EEN The late Queen Sophie of Sweden was a great reader, and was well ac quainted with many of the religious books that have been published in the last thirty years (says "The West minster Gazette"). She read the books of -Dr. F. B. Meyer with much appre ciation, and took the first opportu nity of hearing him preach on an in cognito visit to London. Queen So phie attended several years ago the Keswick Convention, with which she was in full sympathy. -Few in the great tent were aware that the sweet faced elderly lady in black was a Queen. In her many years of ill health the Queen was never idle, for she loved to work for the poor and needy. The Salvation Army and the late General Booth held a high place in her thoughts. Volumes dealing with foreign missions were perused by Queen Sophie with practical re sults, for she contributed to various special efforts.

GAY WELCOME TO 1914 SHEPHERD AND THE MOON. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 March 1914

CAY WELCOME TO 1914 SHEPHERD AND THE MOON. (By W. Beach Thomas in "The Daily Mail.") In the country we enter the New Year gaily. The moon shows a thin and dainty sickle over the grove, arid throws just enough light to sparkle on snow and ri me. The stars in the belt of Orion,in which French sailors find peculiar luck, shim mer electrically in the Trosty air of a night as true to season as ever the year was in good old time-let us say in 1S6t -when "Good King Wenceslas" was sung along the Ouse to the tune of the fenmen's skates at the hour when the Old Year went and the New Year came. On one down that I know of the New Year will be seen in by the only men who can really act as carol. The shep herd's light twinkles on the hill, look ing from below about as big as Aldo baran or Vega and out-winking the North Star. The hurdles are packed with straw, the ewes are collected, and the cry of new-born lambs and the troubled bleat of the ewe following after the shepherd are likely to make the...

RETURN TO ROMANCE COOMBE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 March 1914

RETURN TO ROMANCE COOMBE. (By Eden Phillpotts in "The Daily News and Leader.") Life comes laden still with good days that whisper of romance, when in some local sanctity, or haunt of old legend, our feet loiter for a little before we pass forward again. I indeed seek these places, and confess an incurable affection for romance in my thoughts and deeds. I would not banish her from art or life, and though most in tellectuals of to-day will have none of her, spurn romantic and classic alike, and take only "realism' to their bosoms; yet who shall declare that rea lism Is the last word, or that reality belongs to her drab categories alone? "There is no 'reality' for us-nor for you either, ye sober ones, and we are far from being so alien to one another as ye suppose, and perhaps our good will to get beyond drunkenness is just as respectable as your belief that ye are altogether incapable of drunken ness." A fragrant return to romance must surely awaits literature, when our ar tists have ...
