It will be noted by our advertis ing columns that a company is being formed to acquire another daily boat between Sorrento, Queenscliff. and Melbourne. This, we may state, has been in contem plation for some time past. A nicely fitted up boat, very suitable for the trade,and having good speed, is in view.

THE FARM. ARE PHOSPHATE AND POTASH WASHED OUT OF THE SOIL? [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 3 October 1914
THE FARM. ARE PHOSPHATE AND POTASH WASHED OUT OF THE SOIL? It is said that the best time to ap ply basic slag and kainit is in the autumn or early winter, as by this early application the phosphoric acid in the slag becomes available for the plants in the spring, when they start growing, and the potash in the kain it improves in condition, having part ed during the winter months with the proportion of chlorides which are not desirable for the crop. But the question is often asked whether, with such early application, there is not a great risk of loss of the valuable constituents from being washed out during the heavy winter rains, especially in. meadows and pastures which are subject to being flooded, or, if not washed away, washed too deeply into the soil.. It might naturally be assumed that this would be the case, but experi ence shows that there is not much ground for such apprehension, especi ally it the heavy rain does not come directly after the application of the manures.

A PUGILISTIC CABBY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 10 October 1914
A PUGILISTIC CABBY. ·· . Mr.. Grant Allen used..to tell. of an amusing experience with a London cab-driver. After leaving his publisher's, he hired a cab to drive to a brother novelist. On arriving at his destination he tendered the ca'by four shillings, which was a little over the proper fare. The driver, however, was not satisfied, and wanted six shillings. .Grant Al ler refused to pay more, whereupon the driver offered to fight him for it. Allen, who knew as much about.the art of self-defence as the man in the moon, was rather taken back at, the man s request; however, he agreed, saying. "The very thing, my friend will hold che money and act as refe ree, so come along." Cabby got. down and followed him into the gar den. Allen then placed the six shil lings into his friend's hand, took off his coat, rolled up his shirt-sleeves all with an air of cheerful alacrity, and bade the man come on. His anxiety was intense,.lbut it relaxed as he watched the cabman's face, showing deubt, sur...
WHAT THE NIGGER THOUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 10 October 1914
WHAIT THE NIGGER THOUGHT. Admiral De Horsey is an excellent raconteur, and from out of his fund of anecdote, does not hesitate to bring forth a story against himself, if it be a good one. The follow ing is one of the best, especially when told by the Admiral himself. It was when he was Commodore in the West Indies, and his ship lying in Port Royal harbour, Jamaica. One night he went ashore to dine with the Governor at' Kingston, but forget to learn the password for the night. Returning on board after dinner, he was stopped at the dock yard gates by a sentry of the West India PRegiment. "Who go dar ?" demanded the black warrior, bringing his bayonet to the charge. "A friend," came the reply out of the dark. "Wal, Massa Frien', what am de countersign ?" "That's all right, you know me," said the Commodore. "Me know nobody no got dat countersign," and he brought his bayonet perilously near the officer. '"You no can pass h'yar." "But I am Commodore De Hor sey." The nigger broke into a br...
A MAN WHO WAS HANGED. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 10 October 1914
A MAN WHO WAS HANGED. ·-4---- It was the custom in the good old daeys, especially in Ireland, to hang condemned men for half an hour, and then hand them over to their friends. A man named Mahoney was hanged in this way. At the end of half an hour his body was given to his friends, who put him in a cofn they had brought with them, and gatioped off with him on a c.rt. But, before they were out of sight: of the gallows authorities, the eorpe in the exuberance of his joy sat up in the coffin and shouted "Toioroo !" A "pall," terrified lest .his exhibition of vitality should cause the execu tioner to come after them, hit the hanged man playfully on the head with his stick, remarking, "Kapt quiet, ye divil." The sileacing was so effectual that the victim of i never woke again, but was well and truly waked that same evening. There was no doubt that the blow on the head had killed him. The facts came to the knowledge of the authorities, and a justice was ap pealed to for a warrant for the c...
WAR ITEMS. A New Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 10 October 1914
WAR ITEMS. A New Australia. Australia must be a greater gainer by the war. It is incon ceivable that the old Imperial policy of lending money to Germany in stead of to the Dominions, and of giving foreign goods a better chance than Australian in British markets, can any longer be maintained. We shall have a better defined place in i the world's thoughts, a vote in Imperial politics; a clear part in defence plans. We shall have a greater attention from capitalists and immigrants. In the system of Tmperial federation which this w'r hIi s mac'e impe:ative, we shall gain immensely from the new interest that the strongest part of A.the Empire will take in its outlying provinces. An Imperial Develop mental board will give our sinews of muscle the help of Great Britain's sinews of money. In the Pacific we shall have at least one new market for our goods--German New Guinea, already a moderately rich territory. We may feel that by. lifting their flag on the Caroline Islands .the Japanese hav...

The attendance was smaller than usual owing' to :sick ness.

QUEENSCLIFF'S SEASON. Not Interfered With BY WAR PREPARATIONS. Queenscliff residents, many of whom greatly depend upon help from visitors in thesunimer season, have, since war preparations here, been concerned as to the likelihood or otherwise of the season being affected.

We mentioned a couple of weeks ago that it was not unlikely that a new daily boat would shortly be provided for the Bay trade. A further step has now been taken. A company of 16,000 shares is in course of flotation, 5000 of which are being subscribed. A number of the shares have been taken up by residents of Queenscliff and Sor rinto, and at a meeting of the Progress Association of the latter place quite a deal of enthusiasm was shown in the matter. The new boat is mentioned as compact and well-fitted, of over 300 tons, and besides adaptable for the ordinary business of the Bay, is very suitable for excuirsion parties, and will sup ply a want in this direction. Mr G. Baars, now of Sorrento, is taking especial interest in the flotation of the new company, from whom par may be obtained. The Scottish Regiment, which. are at present in camp, bring to memory the sad fatality at Point Lonsdale, last season, when their much respected lieutenant lost his life whilst surf bathing. His surviv...
