"PEANUT KING." PERCY BRUNTON'S LATEST ROLE. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 27 February 1914
"PEANUT KING." PERCY BRUNTON'S LATEST ROLE. At the Port Melbourne Court on Wednesday Percy Brunton, the self styled "Peanut King," was charged with street obstruction, and was fined £1, with the alternative of seven days' imprisonment. He was allowed seven days in which to pay. Constable Burke said that he was going on duty on Tuesday night about 8.20 when he saw Brunton ad dressing a large crowd outside the police station, at the corner of Graham and Bay streets. When witness endeavored to get Brunton to move on he caught hold of a tree, to which he clung, and witness had to pull him from the box on which he was mounted by main force. Brunton, on oath, said he was die tributing peanuts free to the children near the picture theatre. He reckoned he must have given away about 15s worth, as he did not wish to take them back to town. He was not aware of the constable's identity, as he was in civilian's clothee. Sergeant Nugent: \Why did you catch hold of the tree ? Brunton: To prevent m...

FIERCE FIRE. WHEEL SHED DESTROYED. MELBOURNE, THURSDaY. The wheel shed at the Sunshine harvester works, Braybrook, was, with its contents, destroyed by fire at 1.30 a.m. to-day. The building, which covered about 200ft. by 2001t., was ablaze before the firemen were notified, and on their arrival flames were bursting through a light iron roof. The firemen had great diffi culty in preventing the spread of the outbreak to the other buildings at the works, and they were par ticularly fortunate in confining the fire to the wheel shed.

EMBEZZLEMENT CASE. £5000 REPAID. CLERK REMANDED FOR SENTENCE. MELBOURtNE, ITHUCDAsY. Mr Justice Cussen, in the Criminal Court this morning, refused to state a case for the opinion of the Full Court in the case of Walter Kingsley Dawson, who had been convicted of embezzling money belonging to his former employer, John George Aik man, trading as Richards and Co,, drapers. Accused, who had pre viously pleaded not guilty to two other charges, now withdrew that plea and pleaded guilty. It was stated by counsel for the defence that Dawson had handel over to Aikman all his property valued at £6073, and that Aikman had given Dawson a promissory note for six months for £1073, so that Dawson was paying Aikman £5000. Dawson was arrested in July last and he had suffered eight months' suspense, and he had a sister in delicate health with two children depending on him. Counsel asked that these matters should be considered when sentence was being passed. Dawson was remanded for sen tence.

JOHNNIE'S JOKE. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 2 March 1914

OVER DEVELOPMENT OF MUSCLES. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 2 March 1914
OVER DEVELOPMENT OF IMUSCLES. In all systems of physical training the only aim and object is to maintaii health. I cannot agree with the methods whose aim is to pile up lumis of muscles on every part of the body, a doctor explains. An advertiement showing a man with a biceps Lke a leg of mutton on his arm is enough to de termine me to have nothing to do with that system. Those muscles are ab solutely useless unless you want, to go on the music i'll stage as a strong man, or wish to convert yourself into a human carthorse. The strain put on the heart in the process of acquir ing those disfiguring hunks about the body counteracts all the good that the exercise might have done.. The im portant organs of the body-the heart the lungs, the liver, and the kidneys- derive no benefit from abnormal inusou !.ar development. Many trainees have a good working knowledge of muscu lar development and how to acauire it, but they know nothing about the heart. They cannot use a stetho scope and find o...
HIS SUGGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 2 March 1914
HIS SUGGESTION. By the restaurant pay-desk stood the manager, greeting each outgo.ng and incoming guest with a seraphie, mana gerial smile. The smile grew broader, and, if pos sible, sweeter, as an elderly gentleman, looking well fed and comfortable, ap proached to pay his bill. When he had colleoted his change he turned and noticed the beaming manager. "By the way," said he, "you say on your bills of fare that you are always glad to receive suggestions from cus tomers as to any possible improve ments that occur to them." "That is so, sir-that is so " an swered the smiling one. "Have Tou any suggestion you wish to make ? "Well-er-yes, I have. You state thafl you make your own sausages in this establishment, do you not?" "That is oorreot, sir-we do f" "Well, then, I would suggest. that you let someone else do it.

EXECUTION OF BENTON. RELATIVES TO VIEW BODY. WASHINGTON, FRIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 2 March 1914
EXECUTION OF BE NTON. RELATIVES TO VIEW BODY. WASHINGTON, FmarD., General Villa, the rebel leader, has agreed to allow two British re presentatives, two American, and two members of the family of Mr Benton to view the body of the ranchowner. It is believed that Mr Benton was buried near Chihuahua City. The Huerta Government is ap pealing to the United States to re consider its recent decision to lift the embargo placed on the exuorta tion of arms to Mexico. President Huerta contends that this action of the United States merely allows the rebels to commit outrages in districts where they control the situation, thus adding to the insecurity of foreigners. It is not likely that the State department will answer this communication,
FERTILISER TERMS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 2 March 1914
FERTILISER TERMS. In the minds of farmers who have little time to study the technicalities of nomenclature, confusion may easily arise as to the precise meaning of the different names under which phosphate of lime is offered for agricultural pur poses. There are four forms of phos phate of lime:-1. Soluble in water, as in superphosphate. It is mono-caloic namely, one equivalent of phophoric acid, is combined with one equivalent of lime, and when phosphate of lime is described as "soluble," it is understood by long custom and usance in the trade to mean "soluble in water." This is recognised by the Fertilisers and Feed ing Stuffs Act, because in Section 10, (1), we find the words, "The expres sions 'soluble and insoluble' shall res pectively mean soluble and insoluble in water," and if the phosphate of lime is not soluble in water, but in citric acid, it should be so specified. 2. Sol uble in weak acid, as in basic super phosphate, reverted or retrograde phos phate. This form is "di-...
LONDON MEETING. LONDON, FRIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 2 March 1914
LONDON M[EETING, LONDON, FRID-Y. A demonstration was held at the Opera House to-day in sympathy with the nine Labor leaders de ported from South Africa. The gathering pledged itself to assist the return of the nine men to the Union. Mr Waterston, president of the South African Railwaymen's Society. denied that he and his colleagues had been guilty of using dynamite or of plotting to establish a pro visional government during the late trouble in the Union. He admitted. however, that miners on the Rand, during the strike, had spoken about the establishment of a provisional government.
