Sad Fatality at Lang Lang. « SUDDFiX DEATH ON FOOT BALL FIELD. The football match between Lang Lang and iCooWerfup which took place on Saturday will long be remem bered, being terminated by the pain fully midden death of one of the Lang Lang players, Mr Walter Mackie. Mr Mackie in the first quarter was placed half-forward, and as .usual was playing a very effective and stren uous game. Iu the second term he was roving, and about halfway through the quarter was observed to stop fol lowing the game, and after standing unsteadily for a rrfonient, fall to his hands and knees, and then lay on the ground. The game at the tune was' exciting, and players, thinking he wag "winded," although he had received no knock (the game being played in s very friendlv spirit) left the poor fellow in care of the spectators, who carried him from the ground, and at once saw his condition was critical. Every thing that could be thought of was done for his relief, but it was soon apparent that he was beyond ...

Trusts and Combines. [Newspaper Article] — Lang Lang Guardian — 9 September 1914
Trusts and Combines,! a I XBy Bill Nye) It was with a great amount of in terest that I listened to the remarks of Sir William Irvine, when speak ing at Lang Lang, on the subject of trusts and combines, especially that portion relating to the determination of the Liberal party to deal with any injurious combination with the mach inery of existing Anti-Trust laws. At the previous election his oppon ent, Mr Russell, conducted his cam paign principally on an appeal for support for his party to deal with trusts and combines, on the ground that they were responsible for the rise in the cost of living. It was characteristic of 'the icebetg' that during the campaign he never ref erred in any way to his opponent or his opinions. However, at Bunyip one of his audience, exasperated by 'the iceberg's' silence on this sub ject, asked him point blank : 'What is the .cause of the increase in the cost of living ?' The answer was : "There are many causes, but the principal reason is the depreciation...

THE &lt;31U AUDI AN Fulfils all these Reauirements ADVERTISING. 4 f There is no Business that cannot bo Benefited by live, judicious advertis ing. Ill country towns the people in business sometimes say, "Why should I advertise ? Everybody knows where I am and what I sell." But that is an error. It can be proved erroneous by' the Railway and Coach manifests and the parcels post lists at any provincial centre in which :th« local business men fail to realise the need for keeping the people in touch t»ith all they have to sell aJid how they seJl it. It is safe to assert that by far the greater part of the goods that J>ouie from tho cities through mail iorders could be obtained locally of as good quality and as cheaply as the city houses can supply. But people need to be educated up to this, and it is ■ -through the advertising columns of the Looal Newspaper that the education can '-be effected.

Britain's Command of the Sea. [Newspaper Article] — Lang Lang Guardian — 9 September 1914
Britain's Command of the Sea. If we have command of the sea, no power could land 50,000 men with stores and munitions of war in Austra lia. If we have not command of the sea an invader would certainly throw on to our shores a far larger army than wo could hope to cope with. A com mon-sense reading of Sir Ian Hamilton's report on Australia's military defences can lead tc no other deduction than that our army is too small to cope with a real invasion, and far larger and more cum- | bersome than is needed to meet a chance raid. Great Britain's almost instantane ous command of the sea, her domination of the trade routes, £ind her first naval attack in the destruction of German war ships off Heligo'and, show how vital to the interests of the Empire is absolute sea control, enabling England and the dominions not only to rest in absolute safety, but to constantly increase their reinforcements to their allies in Europe, |
