ILL-HEALTH NO BAR TO FAME. Celebrities Who Have Won Success Despite Illness. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 29 March 1934
ill-health 'no bar to ? ' . ,\fame. Celebrities Whov Have Won Success Despite Illness. Ill-health is the greatest drawback imaginable to a successful career. Yet, if everyone who suffered from illness permitted it to get the. upper hand, dozens of world-famous names would never have risen above obscur ity. Everyone remembers the late Lord Curzon's habit of stopping occasion ally in the middle of a big speech and looking rather superciliously round on his hearers. Few people know even now that he suffered all his life from a most painful spinal trouble, and that when he stopped in a speech it was because his back hurt him so terribly that for a moment he could not speak. Lord Snowden would never have en tered politics at all save for illness. He was making brilliant progress in the Civil Service when his health gave way, and for two years he was on his back. During that time he read so much Socialist literature that when he '«o nb ii« liicu iJuiiLii;a. jriia iiuaiui its not robust ev...

VICTORIAN APPLE CROP. HEAT WAVE CAUSES HEAVY LOSSES. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 29 March 1934
VICTORIAN APPLE CROP. HEAT WAVE CAUSES HEAVY LOSSES. Very heavy losses are reported to have been suffered by Victorian fruitgrowers as the result of the heat wave last week. In most orchards apples are littered thickly over the round, and only a few remain on the trees. The apples which remain on the trees are in most cases sunburnt, and those which have fallen are bruised and rotting. Jonathans ap pear to have suffered most, with Five Crowns next. At Hastings the pick ing season had just begun when prac tically' the whole crop of Jonathans fell to the ground, ruined by bruising and sun scald, making a loss of about 60,000 cases in the district. At Narre Warren in some eases 90 per cent, of the fruit has been ruined. . One orchaidist who before the heat wave expected to get from 8 to 10 cases of apples from each tree, now expects .to -get -only about -half a case from' most of the trees. Many ? of the apples in the district have been burnt brown and will not be picked. An orchardist...
THE GRAVENSTEIN. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 29 March 1934
THE GRAVENSTEIN. During his visit to the Sydney mar- V kets last month our representative ? noticed on some sections Gi'aven stein apples, beautifully colored, that were selling at 8s per case, while - green ones alongside were bringing sales at 4s. Mr P. Vince, formerly of Longley, but now working in the oyaney marKet, saia ne naa seen some experiments carried out with the Gravenstein apple at the Batlow (N.S.W.) Experimental Station, wheih showed in the first place that this variety grew best on its own stock, as it had a tendency to twist the branches when grafted on other stocks. Its other remarkable fea ture was that it should be allowed to fully ripen before being picked, as it not only retained its quality and ; condition when picked at this stage, but it would not color at all if picked green. A great many grow ers in Tasmania were apparently not aware of this fact, as they continued year after year sending the fruit over* green, and it was most difficult to sell, as it shri...

THE GAY BANDIT OF THE BOBBER A Thrilling Romance of the Mexican Border Country. By TOM GILL. (Published by Special Arrangement.) [ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.] . v CHAPTER XXXIII. Already the cattle had caught the scent of water and lumbered down the long, dry slope, stopping only when they stood knee-deep in the shallow, muddy pond. The men watered their horses. Ted's mouth and throat were parched. His canteen was empty, but he viewed the yellow, stagnant water uefore him distastefully. 'Let's ride up the arroyo,' he sug gested. 'We may find a spring at the head of it.' : Then for twenty minutes they trot ted up the narrow bed of the stream; :??'. but found no trickle of water. Manuel shook his head. 'It is no good, senor. One may not look for living water in this land until '' the rains come.' ' Suddenly he stopped and peered an xiously behind him. 'Was it not a shot?' he asked. Ted listened. Only the creak of , saddle leather as the horse moved rest lessly. He turned to speak, but this t...
EXPORT OF PIGS. SUCCESSFUL SALES IN U.S.A. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 29 March 1934

The Executive of the Tasmanian' Agricultural Bureau have ? received further, information from London, under date 20th January, through the courtesy of Messrs Jones and Co., advising that pork from the U.S.A. of carcases weighing under 80 lbs. is selling freely at the equivalent - of 43H Tier lh ' l-\\ f . TTnitoA TTinn^nm ports. - Messrs Thos.

Hastings Caves VISITED BY PARTY OF HUONITES. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 29 March 1934
Hastings Caves VISITED BY PARTY OF HUON ITES. (By One of Them.) &nbsp; &nbsp; Recently a party, organised by Mr E. A.

ACCIDENT NARROWLY AVERTED. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 29 March 1934
ACCIDENT NARROWLY AVERTED. &nbsp; Yesterday Mr Michael O'Neill, of Glaziers Bay, narrowly escaped serious injury in Hobart. He was crossing Macquarie Street in the di- rection of Franklin Square, about 20 yards from the Elizabeth Street cor- ner, when apparently becoming con- fused by the approach of a motor &nbsp; car travelling towards the Post Office, he stepped in front of an outgoing Sandy Bay tram. When &nbsp; picked up Mr O'Neill was uncon- scious, and was stretched across the tram lines underneath the carriage, one wheel of the tram just touching his head, and the other his legs. The prompt application of the brakes by the driver of the tram undoubtedly prevented a fatal accident. He was admitted to the Hobart Public Hos- pital at 4 p.m. and treated for a wound over the right eye and abras- ions to the nose. His condition last night was stated to be satisfactory.
