London Fruit Shipments. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 4 May 1910

London Fruit Shipments. AN interview with the Victorian Minister of ; Agriculture regard ing the recent slanders cast upon the Tasmanian fruit .industry is published in another column. It will be remembered that some little time ago we drew attention to some derogatory remarks the Minister, according to a para graph which appeared in the ' Age,' had passed about the* quality of ? Tasmanian fruit shipped to London. Knowing that these' statements were abso lutely baseless, we not un naturally entered a strong protest against them, and- commissioned our Victorian correspondent to get an explanation regarding them. This has now been received, but, though it clears the Minister to a certain degree, it makes the general, position even more grave than it at first appeared. Mr Graham denies very emphatically making the statement credited to him, and refers to the matter as ' sheer huinbug.' In view of this, it would appear that the paragraph which forms the subject of com plaint is a Press ...

QUEST OE THE BLUE DIAMOND. EVIL HISTORY OF FAMOUS JEWEL. TREASURE-HUNTING FEAT. A bold English treasure-seeker, John Milne, has conquered im mense difficultres to enrich him self by solving the mystery of the famous lost jewel, thevHope Blue Diamond. But the' adventurer has only achieved a paradox .: he failed where, he succeeded. And the mystery of the Hope diamond is deepened Jjy his success. The blue diamond is a stone that always carried misfortune with it. If its finder could part with it quickly he would be the - richer by some £25,000, its mar ket value as a rare jewel, that weighs 44H carats. But its pre vious possessors met nothing but ? tragedy ; its last owner, a dia mond merchant named^ Hahib, lies drowned . in twenty-six ; fathoms of water. The French : liner Seyne, that carried the blue diamond, went down in Rhio Straits in November. It was thought that the diamond lay in ' the ship's safe, but the result of John Milne's adventure goes to show that it probably lies wit...

Jetty for Eggs and Bacon Bay. Petition from Residents. A petition from the residents of Eggs and Bacon Bay and vicinity, asking that a jetty, be erected there, or the old one repaired, was read at Monday's meeting of the Port Cygnet Council. ' Cr- Harris said it-, was intended to for ward the petition to the Minister of Lands, and he wished the Council to en dorse it. * Tho mnnfiv rpnuirnil fr**. work was on the estimates last year, but was written off. He considered a hard ship was inflicted upon the residents of the locality as a result of that. Eggs and Bacon Bay was the nearest bay to Randall's and Gardner's Bay, neither of which, in certain weather, could be ap proached. He had seen the time when vessels could not get near them for a week! Under existing conditions Mr Marsden, of Eggs and Bacon Bay, had to take his fruit in punts and place it on the steamer while she was laying in the Bay.

THE SCULLS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 4 May 1910

THE SCULLS. \ Tha first event of the. day. Was the Sculls, in ^which there were three com petitors— PJ C.'Ivens (Victoria), who won the Championship in 1906, and again in 1907; A. Priddle (New South Wales) and C. McVilley (Tasmania). Had the officials of the Rowing Union been vested with the supreme power of directing what the water should be for these events, they could not have been better accommodated than they were. Indeed, the placidity of the river was remark able even for these quarters. A fresh northerly breeze prevailod, but while being helpful to the rowers in that it was directly behind-them it did . not raised a ripple, under such conditions the scullers were got away, McVilley losing about a canvas on the start. The Victorian was the smartest to get moving. Before many yards had been covered it was seen that he was drawing away, and with a know ledge of his previous performances fresh in the memory of most people the general belief was that his two opponents had seen th...

THE BEST COUNTRY ON EARTH. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 4 May 1910

THE BEST COUNTRY ON EARTH. This is the best country on earth to live in, in comfort, and not a bad one to die in either. A man 4oes not need much sense to accomplish this either. He can always earn money in Aus tralia, and he can always save some if he lias but the necessary sense. It will be found, in nine cases out of ten, that non success can oe traced to tne aosence or such sense on the part of the individual concerned. Every man, if he is sufficiently deter mined about it, may be even better off in the future than he may be to-day. He will not need any Old-Age Pension. A Policy in the National Mutnal Life Association will provide for his future, and will also protect his dependents in the meantime WITHOUT ANY ACTUAL COST TO HIM, They will tell you all about it at the' Head Office in Macquarie-street, Hobart, if you write or eall.
