LIFE IN RHODESIA. VICTORIAN WOMAN'S VIEWS. BLACK SERVANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 30 May 1914

LIFE IN RHODESIA. VICTORIAN WOMAN'S VIEWS. BLACK SERVANTS. Life In the hinderland of South Africa is not exactly similar to life in Australia's Northern Territory, ac cording to Mrs. W. E. Dick, who spent years of her life in Southern Rho desia before coming to Melbourne to live. "I had not a dull day all the tims I was there," she says, in an inter view. "My huBband was in charge of one of the railway stations, which was really the receiving depot for the settlers' produce. So I had many opportunities of learning the ways of the people. It was a bit strange at first. For miles around stretched the veldt, while here and there a farm house dotted the landscape. But the strangeness soon wore off. The peo ple were so warm-hearted; in fact, they seemed to think it was their duty to make a new arrival feel at home." Do you think the Kaffir makes u good servant?" "Certainly; that is, if you train him yourself. The first boy I had was an awful stupid, and could not do any thing correctly. ...

FASHIONS. HOW THEY ARE CREATED. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 30 May 1914

FASHIONS. HOW THEY ARB CREATED. Paris is tlie homo and centre of fashions for women (writes P. W.,ln a London paper). The most famotis dressmakerB In the world are In Paris, and so groat a reputation ha.1) that city in this respect that among j the society women whose wealth keeps the trade alive It is almost a reproach to wear any frock that does not come from the French capital, or which, '.f j made In England, was not copied from a Parisian design. Now, It will be seen at once that, to maintain such a reputation as this the Parisian dressmakers must con stantly create new designs. If tho.v did not, London or some other city would soon do so and would _rob them of their reputation for originality and creative genius. So for half the year at least, when the spring and autumn fashiohs arj in preparation, they work almost night and day, in order that, at those sen sons when ladles of fashion will want new frocks, they may have In readi ness a largo number of fresh designs, or "new mo...

LADIES' LETTER. By "Irene," In Melbourne. It la really astonishing liow quickly we have the new season's fashions here, and, In a way, It must be confess ed, It Is rather a pity, for It meanB we are adopting modeB designed for sum mer fabrics while we are still In win ter and wearing cloth and heavy weight materials. But as soon as in dications of tho advance styles arrive. people will have them, so, in conse quonce, they are shown by our leading establishments. For Instance, already .0 flat Watteau . and Dolly Varden ..ind of hats, which have been intro duced in Paris for Bpring, are being shown hero.

THE FINAL CALL. ACTORS WHO DIED ON THE STAGE. PROPHETIC UTTERANCES. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 30 May 1914

THE FINAL CALL. ACTORS WHO DIED ON THE STAGE. PROPHETIC UTTERANCES. The death of Mr. Walter DagleiBh on-the stage of the King's Theatre, Fremantle, recalls the fact that many notable actors have made similar dra matic exits from this world. Some years ago, says the "Sun," It was tiio custom of the attendants at" the Prin cess Theatre In Melbourno to point to- a bloodstain on a carpet at the exact spot on which Signor Frederick died when he was playing in "Fnust." The story of his tragic death used to be told in awesome whisperB. Among actors of a superstitious tem perament the bloodstain—as the stain had never beon sent to the public analyst for identification it is difficult to say whether it was human blood— was a hallowed spot, and many of them' who wero seen doing an undig nified side-step not in the business of the play were only trying to avoid desecrating the death-stain with the point • of their stage shoes. Signor Frederici died, as several imperson ators of Mephistopheles ...

THE PROPHET ENGINEER. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 30 May 1914

THE PROPHET ENGINEER. I "If Colonel Goethals had been an Englishman and had built the Panama Canal and governed the Zone tor Eng land, he would have been made a peer of the realm. A title for him has indeed been ' suggested — Lord Culebra," sas the "Outlook." "At the presentation to him of the Civic Forum medal, a poem, written for the occasion, was read by its au thor, Percy MacKaye. It is not only a fine example of occasional verse, but a stirring description of Colonel Goethals' task, and of the spirit in which he accomplished It, as the fol lowing stanzas show:— " 'A man went down to Panama Where many a man had died To silt the sliding mountains And lift the eternal tide; A man stood up in Panama, And the mountains stood aside.

FAMILY IN STATUES. WOMAN'S WEIRD WILL. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 30 May 1914

FAMILY IN STATUES. WOMAN'S WEIRD WILL. Miss Catherine MacCaig, whose bro ther, the late Mr. John Smart Mac Caig, an Oban (Scotland) banker, di rected in his will that 12 colossal sta tues of himself, his wife, and his fam ily should 'be erected on the top of the wallB of a gigantic tower which he had built on Oban Hill, has left an eccentric will on a similar plan. Miss MacCaig, who died last year, was the last of the line, and by an early will left various bequests In the, ordinary way; but in 1910 she added a codicil to take precedence of .all else, by which the MacCaig Tower might gain further fame, and be ten anted within/as, well as without.

Wheat Poisoning:. AND ITS TREATMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 30 May 1914

Wheat Poisoning:. AND ITS TREATMENT. . Writing to the Jeparit "Leader," in reference to the death of Mr Dart's horses at Wilkur, which died as the re sult of having gorged themselves with wheat, Mr T. Bell, M.R.C.V.S., says that the;, remedy suggested—two or throe dessert spoonfuls of bicarbonate of soda (or baking soda) in warm water, and allowing access to drinking water is useless. The latter part of the treatment (he says) is good, but the action of warm water on bicarbonate of soda cauies it to effervesce, c r li/./. oft', and what is really given as a drench is nothing but warm water, the action of the soda being lost. If you will allow me, I will try to de scribe briefly, experiments which have recently been carried out by profession al men at the Melbourne Veterinary College. An old horse was kept with out food for several days, and then fed with pure wheat ; symptoms of wheal poisoning soon showed themselves, an i when on the point i f death the horse was killed, and the wh...

Defence of the Commonwealth. ADMINISTRATIVE WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 30 May 1914

Defence of the Common wealth. Administrative Work. General Hamilton's report on the military forces of the Commonwealth show? that in the matter of defence there is much for the Liberal Ministry to do. When in office the Labor Party displayed n praiseworthy desire to lay the foundations of an army and of a navy, which should make Australia safe from Foreign attack. But, so much said, it has been frankly pointed out that much of General Hamilton's report is a condemnation of past business methods, a pica for wiser administration in the fqcure. Tho General insists that Australia's army must have a businoss branch under a comptroller with a quarter master general ns second in command. It would be amongst the duties of this branch to watch expenditure closely to see that Commonwealth thousands, go where need is greatest, not necessarily where demand is most urgent. It would have to decentralise, to establish a pension scheme, to bring about closer co-operation between the Defence and Ot...

Comments on Current Events. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 30 May 1914

Comments on Current Events. By "Grader." Twelve pounds a week is not bad "screw" at all ; many good men and true have to exist on a much smaller weekly wage, and arc expected to behave them selves properly and with due de corum whilst earning it. In our House of Representatives we have gentlemen drawing the above-mentioned salary, and they play the fool in the full gaze of a disgusted public. Such a small trick as hiding the mace might be considered a joke amongst children, but how could grown men see anything funny in the act ?~ The fact is, there are some people in responsible positions who, though of man's stature, still have the minds of children, consequently it doesn't takemuch to amuse them— "Behold the child, by Nature's kindly law, Pleased with" a rattle, tickled a straw." And we, cheerfully or otherwise, pay twelve pounds a week for this sort of " fun." + + -b Recently two of our most prominent legislators were con victed of blunders in natural his tory.
