OUR MEBOURNE LETTER. DROUGHT POSSIBILITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 24 March 1914

OUR MEBOURNE LETTER :o: From our own Correspondent. DROUGHT POSSIBILITIES. Naturally one does not desire to figure as a prophet of evil or to figure ia the role of CaBsandia, but the fact remains that it behoves the people of Victoria to think very carefully as to. the possibilities of a drought. Once. I years ago, it is stated an acting ] meteorologist in one of the neighbour ing colonies prophesied a drought. The managers of the financial insti tutions gavo heed to his warnings, but instead of assisting their cus tomers to prepare for the evil day simply shut down on overdraft cus tomers, with the result that when the drought came along according to schedule the pastoralists in the par ticular colony were pretty well all ruined. This year the lightness of rains for months past is telling its tale. Not only are the districts north of the ranges short of water, but in the ordinarily well watered southern districts there is an absolute short age which looks ominously like the beginni...

INFLUENCE OF HEREDITY. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 24 March 1914

INFLUENCE OF HEREDITY 'o: A lecture on eugenics was de livered by Dr Jones, Inspector Genoral of tho Insane, in the lecture hall of the Australian Church. Rev. Dr Strong presided. Dr Jones said that eugenics was not altogether a new science. Its object as defined by Dr Campbell was to encourage the marriage of the bio logically suitable, and discourage the marriage of the biologically unsuit able. Eugenics, the lecturer said, stood in close relationship to hygiene, and the principal aim of its study came almost entirely to the vital question " Who should be allowed to marry The eugenist aimed at benefiting posterity ' through the agency of heredity. At the present time there was some danger of en thusiasm being allowed to burst out with ill-considered proposals for re form. Except in some obyious, case eugenisfcs were not prepared to ad vise who should marry and who should not marry. The suggestion that weekness should marry strength and strength marry weekness was quite ridiculous....

OPEN CONFESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 24 March 1914

OPEN CONFESSION". The Melbourne papers are making ! merry over Mr Watt's naive con fessions of misdoings in the past when he was one of "the " bad boys" who made life a burden to the then caretaker of the Royal Park. The common sense magistrates of that day it seems used to advise the Park authorities not to prosecute the Willie Watts of the day, but to in struct the Park ranger to lay the whip on. The Premier admits he got his share and evidently bears no animosity towards his old time enemy. It is singular how the lapse of time changes opinions. Mr Watt took his whacks in those days, and deserved more than he got, and now in a manly way sees only something to be amused at. Incidentally ifc may be sumised that he does not feel amused with a later horse whipping episode where he was the victim and where he was in no way to blame. Mr Watt is big enough to own that he deserved what he got as a boy, but one would like to know what would happen to a park caretaker who gave troublesome b...

TELEPHONE TROUBLES. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 24 March 1914

TELEPHONE TROUBLES. As most people know Mr Hughes, M.P„ is very deaf, though his politi cal opponents have been wont to consider and say that when " Billy'' wanted to hear he was as well able to do so as the keenest eared man in the House. In order to take part in the big waterside workers case, Mr Hughes has, however, Jixed up an elaborate telephone installation with wires from ihe Bench and the witness box, the receiver being attached to Mr Hughes' person. On the first day the case was before the court the ap paratus failed, and Mr Hughes had to depend on an assistant who wrote down what was said while Mr Hughes instructed himself from the memoranda. Since then matters have been more satisfactory, though the court attendant, who by the way as a Labour man, refers to Mr Justice Higgins, Messrs Hughes, Arthur, and Brennan as his " cobbers,") every morning solemnly tests the telephone by making remarks about the weather to Mr Hughes who nods his head rapidly like a Chinese mandarin f...

IS UNIVERSAL PEACE-POSSIBLE? [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 27 March 1914

IS UNIVERSAL PEACE-POSSIBLE? By Frank Cufley. Many people throughout the world are cherishing the idea that some day war will become a thing of the j?ast, and universal peace will toe establish ed. Only a few weeks ago a great palace was opened, and thousands of pounds have toeen given to the cause; 'but is the ideal state possible, or are the advocates chasing a phantom? Of course, / quite agree that It ap pears possible to settle disputes toy conference; but it is not appearances which tell, but facts. Does Nature permit universal peace? Darwin, who was perhaps the gratest nature student the "world has ever produced, offers his theory of the survival of the fittest. How does this fit in with the ideal? As far 'back in the history of the world as time will allow us to see the whole living things have ibeen fighting for the mastery one over another. Not only animal life;. it also applies to plant life. The lower animals are in many cases protected from themselves, as in the bovine c...

A TRUE STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 27 March 1914

A TRUE STORY. A number of years ago some miners 1 in Wales, in exploring an old disused pit, found the body of a young man dressed in a fashion long out of date. The peculiar action of the air of the mine was such as preserved the body so perfectly that it appeared asleep rather than dead. The miners were puzzled at the cir cumstances. No one in the district had been missed within their remem brance, and at last it was resolved to bring 111 the oldest inhabitant—an old lady over eighty years old, who had lived single in the village all her life. When she was taken into the room where the dead man lay, a strange thing occurred. The old lady fell 011 lie corpse, and kisseu it, and address ed it by every term of endearment spoken in a bygone generation. He was her only love, and she had waited for him her long life.
