The Great Meat Shortage [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 21 May 1914

•High prices for stock have caused the closing down of the Australian Chilling and Freezing Company's works at Aberdeen. Victorian buyers were present in Sydney recently buy ing stotss at Homebush for Mel bourne butchers. Opinions as to why, with the good seasons 111 the past few years, there should be any shortage of meat are wide and varied. Mr. Slmrpe, M.P., among many others well informed ascribes it to the opera tions of the American Trust now operating in Australia. In addition to acquiring large properties and mak ing big cattle deals in the North Territory and Queensland, where it is spending a million and a quarter of money in canning works, Mr. Sharpc says it has aJreadj' been a big buyer of stock on the IST,S.W. northern rivers. He adds that the trust has secured all the fat stock in Queens land, and is now turning its attention to KS.W.

CHAPTER XXVII. FOUL MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 21 May 1914

CHAPTER XXVII. FOUL MUHDEll. It was blind anil ungovernable fury that prompted Fergus I-Taygarth's murderous shot, while Humphrey fired in seH-defence and because ho thoroughly knew the nature of 'his enemy. But one missed, and the other aimed only too well. As the white smoke curled upward, Hay garth was seen standing unharmed. Churton's face was deadly pale, and he reeled 011 his feet ; he dropped his pistol and clutched^ with both hands at his breast. Then by a supreme effort he half-leapt., half-staggered across the short space that sepa rated him from his assailant. "You dastard ! You black hearted scoundrel !" he cried, hoar sely. " You've killed me" Iiaygarth tried to fire again, but before he could lift his weapon 1 Churton was upon him. They fell to the floor, rolled over several times, and lodged against a table, Haygarlh seemed like a child in the grasp of the larger man, whose hands were fastened tightly on his throat. So far Mynhart had made no move to interfere. "Help—...

That impi- can't be many miles in front, and at any moment our friends may be surprised and at tacked. Let's make a spurt." "We can't go much faster on such rugged ground," Jlaygarth replied. "We are sure to overtake the col umn before long," he added, point ing to the trampled grass and the faint marks of wheels. "I should say it passed here within the half hour. What do you think, Myn hart 7" "Yes, you are right," the Boer assented. "We will overtake them by the drift of the Lomcnu river, • or perhaps at Humphrey Churton's house." "Humphrey Churton's house?" Erie asked, in surprise. "Are wc near there ?" . "Within two or three miles,"; HayJ garth answered. ' "The straight'est road to the fort leads right by' the house, and the drift is a mile or so beyond. It is there we shall most likely overtake the column, and halt it until the arrival of the sco...

FACTS ABOUT PIANOS. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 21 May 1914

FACTS ABOUT PIANOS. Have you ever thought, when play ing some melodious sonata upon your piano, that the instrument, as it is to-day, is the perfection of centuries of invention ? In the beginning it was a liarp shaped piece of wood, having two or three strings. From time to time more strings were added, until the cithara was invented. This w'as an instrument in the shape of a capital "P," with ten strings stretched ncross the open space. Many cen- ■ turies afterwards musicians conceived^ the idea of stretching strings across an open box. About the year 1200 this was done ; the dulcimer made its appearance, and the strings were struck with hammers. For another hundred years or so these hammers were held in the hands, and then some genius invent ed a. keyboard, which, being struck by the fingers, caused the hammers to strike the strings. This was called a clavicytherium, or keyed cithara, and from time to time it was. modified and improved. During Queen Elizabeth's time it was called...

HORSE-DEVOURING ANACONDAS. SNAKES OF THE UPPER AMAZON. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 21 May 1914

.HORSE-DEVOURING AHA COHDAS. ■? SNAKES OF THE UPIJEU AMAZON. In an article on reptiles, publish ed in the "Nataional Geographical Magazine," Curator lJUmars, of the New York Zoological Park, makes the following statement regarding the length and .size of the boa con strictors, or anacondas, of South America. "Species of the genus boa in habiting tropical America attain a maximum length of twelve to four teen feet.'' Having, recently explored a section of the .1 avar.v liivcr region, situated about 2200 miles from the mouth ol this great river, I may state that I have assisted in the killing and skinning of a sucumju, or ana conda, having a total length of 54 feet 8 inches when dried. This measurement was taken very carefully, and was witnessed by several men. The statement made by Mr. Ditmars would therefore seem too conservative, and possibly is the result of a too limited knowledge' of the fauna of .South America, and the upper Amazon in particular. it may be .said in favour of my...

CHAPTER XXV. BAB NEWS. The next instant the suspense was ended. Thank Heaven, the store ,was safe) even though no flag was fluttering from the roof. There it nestled peacefully down in the hol low—the sturdy, low-browed house, enclosed on all sides by a langer formed of old carts, scrub, felled timber, barbed wire, and demolished outbuildings. One corner of the laager had been torn away, and just inside stood a waggon and four mules. From the open door of the house five men were carrying boxes and various other articles to the vehicle. The windows bn that side were also ' open wide. Shurlock gave a lusty shout, and it was answered by the workers, ' who paused to look curiously to wards the new arrivals. The'three rode on down the easy slope, and as they drew nearer Eric saw that the barricade bore signs of hard usage, and that the ground outside of it was trampled smooth and strewn with broken assegais and guns, shields, Kaffir lion-cloths, and dried patches of' blood.

Australian's New Army. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 21 May 1914

Ill his report on the military system of Australia, which is now ready for circulation, General Sir Tan Hamilton traverses all phases of defence' activi ties of Australia, and indicates that, while training is proceeding along lines which he regards as satisfactory there are many reforms desirable in the administrative branches. According to the estimate made by I Major-General Kirkpatrick, the Aus tralian citizen army could not be mobilised in less than six weeks ; but General Hamilton believes that the scheme of organisation is now so com plete within the training areas that inside of 24 hours the troops would begin to assemble for service, and the whole of the fighting units would be ready for the field in a fortnight. He does not suggest that the training has sufficiently advanced yet for the army to give a good account of itself against an enemy, but that would be remedied as the system reached its full expansion in five years. General Hamilton is of opinion ! that the training...

The nett result of the new taxation would bo an added public burden of LI,250,000 over and above the in creased tramway and railway charges. In a household of four Mr. "Wade declared the taxation meant L25 :i year more. In a family of five the increase was L30.
