SPORT AND CRUELTY. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 22 May 1914

SPORT AND CRUELTY. Pastor Harris, ot the Colac Baptist Church, in the course of a sermon, asked tlie question-"Are Austra Jians wholly free from a charge of wanton cruolty in their sports ? HP said attention was recently directed to cruelty'at pigeon'matches; now people had thrust under their notice what took place at Plumpton coursing matches. If hares were to be de stroyed ; let it be done humanely. To trap and train, them so they can be nhased about an enclosure, from which there is practically no escape, and to be caught, mangled by two ileet, powerful dogs, was nothing less than wanton cruelty. There was no room at a Plumpton display for the boasted 20th century refinement and culture. In olden times men indulged their savage instincts, and found pleasure in seeing Christians torn to pieces by lions. Present-day people were not much better than the old Romans when they found pleasure in sub mitting hares to similar treatment by dogs.

LECTURE HUMOR. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 22 May 1914

LECTURE HUMOR. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle told the members of the Institute of Lecturers, at their annual dinner in the Hotel Cecil lust night, how he was once hailed by an exclusive American audience as a leader of fashion (says "Tho Daily News," April 1). It was at Morristown, where many o£ New York's most fashionable people live, and Sir Arthur was horrified to discover that ho had left his dresscoat behind him. In despair, ho tore the buttons from his blue reefer jacket, tucked tho front back, and was pleased to find he passed muster with that. Two years later lie met a lady member of tho audience in Egypt, and asked her whether she had noticed his olothes on that occasion. "Oil, yes," she said, "wo all did. We all thought how fashionable you vrere. We thought you had brought the latest thing from London, a sort of blue tuxedo jacket." (Laughter). Mr Charles Garvice told how ho lectured onoe against brass band which was practising beneath the platform. ".Sometimes they won." he said...

A HOLDER OF NINETEEN TITLES. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 22 May 1914

A HOLDER OF NINETEEN TITLES. The Duke of Atholl, whose jubilee has just been celebrated with great re joicings on liis estates, is understood to be the holder of more titles than any other peer in Britain, these num bering altogether nineteen. As Earl Strange, the Duke sits in the House of Lords as a hereditary peer of Great Britain, and there are comparatively few who eclipse his record of fifty years' membership of the Gilded Chamber. In 18G8 the Duke was created a Knight of the Thistle, of which distinguished Order he is now Chancellor. The family, which traces descent from the old Stewarts of Atholl and the Murrays of Tullibar dine, was founded by William de Moravia in the twelfth century. At one time they appear to have been known as Kings of Atholl, owing to the extent of the property held by ?them. The Isle of Man once be longed to them, but in 17G5 the sovereignity of the island was pur. chased by the Government for £70,000.

RICHES IN MIDDLE AGE. The poetry of life gathers around its commencement and Its close, just, us [he poet finds inspiration In the_ rising or setting sun. Infancy has its" ^h'irm of innocence, youth has its charm of energy and hope, age has its charm of pathos. But around mid 11c; life there seems to gather no halo ? f poetry. The bird that wakes the morning with its song is silent in the midday hour. The burden and heat if the day are not favorable to music, i'iip poet who will celebrate the open '.irow of childhood or the furrowed '.lienk of age will find no inspiration , n fhe anxious eye and busy front of ?niidle life. The maiden, who moves fancy free among the meadows; an| r.liu tired face and eyes of tranquil resignation, bordered by Bilver hair, may alike provoke his muse. But who will sing of the middle-aged man or matron? The whole a-tmosphere. >f such lives lacks the poetic qual ity. Their existence is practical, pro-' saic, dull.

"SCOTLAND FOR EVER." [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 22 May 1914

"SCOTLAND FOR EVER." A few months ago a noble lord whose finance's are usually in a state which some folk describe as "shalcy," had occasion to visit a small town in Scotland. Of course his lordship put up at the best hotel, and proceeded to regale himself in lordly fashion, re gardless of expense. Preparatory to the end of his visit the scion of no bility had an interview with the pro prietor, which resulted in that worthy accepting his lordship's cheque, which, however, was dated some six months ahead, the canny Scot having allowed a wide margin of profit as in terest. A fortnight later the ama etl noble man was quietly handed the self same cheque by the factor of Ills es tate in payment of the sale of some cattle 'belonging to bis lordship. The artful hotel proprietor, having bro ther in England in the_ cattle-dealing line, and being rather "dubious about the nobleman's ability to meet his li abilities, had sent the cheque to hiB relative with the injunction to obtain its value f...

Putting It Nicely. A group of four 'convicts were over heard the other day chatting abouL what they were "in for, and each one in turn told his experience. The first one had killed a man, the second had put another man's signa ture to a cheque, while the third one had gone in for a plurality ot spouses. The fourth man, however, did not seem inclined to make any disclo sures. He wa3 a sanctimonious-look ing man, who, although a professional gambler, was called "parson." "Come, parson, what brought you here?" t "I don't care to say," said he. "Out with it! Shoot anybody?" ask ed one. "No, I didn't shoot anyone; - .but sjince you would like to know, I got 'time' because I didn't build a church!" ..Deep silence fell upon the group. No such excuse for penal servitude had ever been heard before, and the '.'parson" was asked to explain. "Well, you see, a congregation raised several hundred pounds to build a church, and handed it over to me to build, and I didn't build it. That's all!"

RESCUED IN AHD-09EAN. Daring the run to Colombo of the' Marmora an iucidont of unusual interest occurred. In the dawn of Gth May the third officer heard a shout in the water, and at once reported the fact to the commander, who ordered the helm to be put hard over the port, swinging the ship b;ick on her course. Two life boys wore at once dropped, and emergency boats ex peditiously manned. The shouting was again heard, and the starboard lifeboat was dropped into the water.. The bo.it- returned after picking up an Indian native, who soon revived under the treatment of the ship's sur-1 geon. ?

IMMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 22 May 1914

IMMIGRATION. Some uneasiness has been expressed, beo*U9e of the diffioulfcy being ex perienced in London in semiring suit able immigrants for Victoria, at the fact that the Government is commit ted to fill 14,000 berths this year. The contract price for these is close on £200,000, and whether the births are occupied or not the State lias to pay for them. Provided they are, the im migrants, of course, have to pay their quota, which is by no means an incon siderable one. Up to the present the officials in iLondon have managed to fill each steamer leaving, but there is ample evidence that it has been a great strain to do so. In the case of the steamer irishman about 130 boys were drafted on board to occupy berths which were intended for adult settlers, owing to the latter class of immigrant being difficult to obtain. Whilst admitting that the situation is a difficult one to deal with, because of the decline in immigration, tbn authorities at this end believe that all the berths reserve...
