Dismal Prospects. A pale-faced passenger looked out { of Oie railway-carriage window with exceeding interest. Finally lie turn 1 ed to a fellow-traveller. "You likely think 1 never rode on this line before." he said, "hut the fact is I just got out of prison this mornin*, and it does me good to look around.

Sporting. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 20 April 1917

Sporting. POLYCRATES drew No. l position at the barrier in the A.J.C Doncaster. This is always regarded as an. advantage in a mile race at Randwick. Polycrates played up a little before the start, but got away well His big weight, however, told its tale, and he just failed to concede 24lb. to Wedding Day. Once again an outsider has succeeded in the A.J.C. Doncaster, and for the six teenth consecutive year, the first favourite has suffered defeat in the rich Randwick mile event. This year's race provided a contest, and Wedding Day, alter racing in the centre of the field to the home turn, finished brilliantly on the outside, and won by a head from Polycrates, who made a great effort under 9 10 White field was a fair third, and just ahead of the favourite, Cetinge. Wedding Day started at 25 to 1 against, and beyond a few thousands laid to stable supporters, had little backing. King's Bounty, who at one stage of the course betting sup planted Cetigne for favourite, finished seventh ; b...

Porepunkah Soldier. IN A HOT CORNER. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 20 April 1917

Porepunkah Soldier.; IN A HOT CORNER. IN a letter to his parents at-Porepunkah, Sergeant James Greatorex, says "Tho light at Kapa duly came off three days after my return, and believe ine it wus some fight. Wo rode 30 miles through the night, and 'got to it' the next morning. We weDt into action on tho horses, having a ride of over a mile, stariing at a canter, and finishing up at a fair gallop. We were shelled the whole time going across. We dismounted and left the horses about a mile and a half from tho position, and Ihe rest of tho fighting was done on foot. The Turkish position was a collection of redoubts and trenches on elevated ground overlooking the country over which we had to advance, which was jilmoat ;ta level as a billiard table, with only a small dip here and there for covor. The marvel of it is that wo evor took the position I never expectoi to come through it.

WORDS WHICH HAVE STRAYED. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 20 April 1917

WORDS WHICH HAVE STRAYED. Hardly any words in the English language have strayed farther from their original meaning than the terms of forestry. Thus a forest was orig inally a great tract of country, which might include woods, cultivated lands, pastures, and even towns and vil lages, all the hunting rights over which were reserved to the monarch. A chase differed from a forest mainly in the fact that the hunting, rights -were vested in a subject instead of the King. A park was a fenced pre serve' either in or out of .a forest, whilst a warren was a piece of waste ground over which the right to hunt the hare, the rabbit, and the Cox, the pheasant, the partridge, and the wood cock, had been granted by the King. In the same way the term affores tation had nothing . to do with the planting of trees. It meant the sub jection of any tract of country to the forest laws; in other words, it was the setting aside of this tract as a forest. A forest might, and common ly did, include vast estat...

Jokes. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 20 April 1917

Jokes. Laughter ia akin to tears. A schoolboy's definition of a joke was given as "something which we laugh at when it happens to somebody else which would make us cry if it hap pened to ourselves." Many people smile when an acquaintance has gout, toothache, or is sea-sick, but it is hard for the sufferer to see where the fun comes in. The common ail ments of life are anything but fit subjects for mirth. Think of the thousands of people who suffer from rheumatism, gout, neuralgia, lumba go, backache, sciatica, blood disor ders, anaemia, indigestion, bilious ness, jaundice, sick-headache, gen eral debility, gravel, stone and blad der troubles. They certainly are not subjects for laughter. In most in stances they are unaware that their suffering probably is due to defective action of the kidneys and liver. When the kidneys and liver actively fulfil their functions, uric and biliary waste poisons, manufactured in the system of these poisons which, fre quently, is the root cause of the ...

Federal Elections. MR. HUGHES AND THE FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 20 April 1917

Federal Eteetioirs. MR. HUGHES AND THE FARMERS. The years o£ war have made one question very clear, and that is that Australia is one oC the food-growing centres of the British Empire. To day Great Britain is depending upon the Australian wheat harvest for her bread, and ships are being taken from other shorter trade routes and are be ing sent to Australian ports to load wheat. The ships are coming not only to help the Australian farmer by clear ing his wheat, but because the mil lions of peoplo in Great Britain need it to make broad. The great Wheat Pool which Mr. Hughes brought into being and helped to develop, is not only now a necessity for the Austra lian wheat grower, but for the Eng lish bread eater. All the Empire now realises the need for the close rela tionship of the trade and commerce of Great Britain and all her overseas do minions. So far, Imperial conferences have been concerned with questions of Government. The co-ordination ot tiie army and the navy of Great Bri tai...

RAILWAY BUILT OVER THE SEA. Connects Island with Mainland. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 20 April 1917

RAILWAY BUILT OVER THE SEA. Connects Island with Mainland. The building of a railway more than four miles long over the sea Is a prodigious feat, especially when there are such difficulties as violent storms and floods to contend with, yet the engineers of the Key West Div ision of the Florida East Coast Rail way managed to build a track over a hundred miles long which connected the islands with the mainland. The Florida Keys are islands situat ed at the south of the Florida Penin sula. One of these, Key West, is four miles long and one mile wide, and has quite a large population. The building of a railway which would connect the islands together with the mainland was started four teen years back. The work was accomplished with, the aid of dredge3, pile-drivers, and all sorts of boats to carry up sup plies. When the work was well under way a terrific hurricane swept away practically the whole of a year's work. Many men were lost, besides some £6000 worth of material. The bridges tha...
