OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. ULSTER TROUBLES. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 3 April 1914

OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. (Prom our own correspondent). ULSTER TROUBLES. In the intervals of conversation about the really great matters of life, cricket, and horsBracing, one can occasionally hear mention made of such trivial subjects as Common wealth and State politics and even the future of the Empire. The Ulster difficulties are the subject of a good deal of controversy in trains and trams just now, but truth to tell discussion of this subject is generally confined to those who are evidently violent partisans on one side or the other. Much bad language, violent, incorrect statements, and even fist shaking are the usual accompani ments to these so-called arguments, but it need hardly be said that the logic of either side is not remarkable for cogency or coherency. One ex cited pair in a railway carriage the other day started amicably enough over the cablegrams in the morning papers, The Home Ruler of the pair regretted there should be any of these difficulties raised, and argued fair...

WHERE SOUND CANNOT BE HEARD. A Mystery of the Sea. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 3 April 1914

'WHERE SOUND CANNOT BE HEARD. A Mystery of the Sea. It is a singular and somewhat dis vUibmg fact that there frequently ex ists at sea, in the area covered by a log, what might be described as a zone of silence; that is, a belt of space m which sound cannot be hcai\" it is the only thing of all others most dreaded by mariners. Thsre may be danger ahead—say, a deadly rock, lying right in the vessel's c°ui£je. The light that marks it, whether from lighthouse or lightship, is blanketed by the fcg, but the crew ar least expect to hear the warning blast of the fog horn. No such blast reaches them. The sound is c^m ijletely lost in the silence zone, and the first intimation tfcey have of the danger is when the esse] crashes on the roclc. jT?. this cause undoubtedly nay be attributed some of the . great dl..as ters at sea: which- have puz?,lod numy shore people.

COMMONWEALTH ROLLS. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 3 April 1914

COMMONWEALTH ROLLS. The central Commonwealth elec toral authorities havo ascertained that as a result of the State electoral canvass now in progress the regis trars in Victoria have discovered that a considerable number of elec- i tors have changed their places of l living by removing from the electoral subdivisio*s for which they are en rolled to other subdivisions, and have unduly delayed taking action to secure transfer or change of enrol ment. The Ohief Electoral Officer points out that it is the duty of the divisional returning officers to take action against these electors, I and also againBt others who have failed to comply with the law relating to i compulsory enrolment. Unless ac tion is taken by those concerned to secure correct enrolment prior to the filing of informations they will render themselves liable to a penalty not exceeding 10/. Every person entitled to the Commonwealth franchise is required by law to onrol for the subdi vision in which he or she lives and has s...

Hooks to gut the best quality obtainable McNee, the jeweller, Victoria Street, Nhill.« WORLD'S WHEAT CROPS. Production of wheat throughout the world at tho last harvest, ac cording to the latest estimate of the International Institute of Agricul ture, shows a total yield of 488,700,000 quarters, against 455,500,000 quarters in 1912 — an increase of about 33,000,000 quarters. In this estimate says " Beerbohra," of February 27, the yields for Russia, Australia, and Argentina are probably too large to the extent of at least 15,000.000 quarters. On the other hand, owing to the large quantity of wheat ren dered unfit for human food by the long spell of wet weathor in Europe at harvest time in-1912, it is generally believed that fully 15,000,000 quarters must be deducted from the total pro duction in that year; otherwise im porting countries would not have t...

HOW TO BE BEAUTIFUL. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 3 April 1914

HOW TO BE BEAUTIFUL. The man, or woman, who wants to be as good-looking as nature will per mit is given a few practical hints in i the "Family Doctor":— Don't eat your meals quickly; this causes indigestion and a red nose. Don't worry; other people's troubles are quite as bad as yours. i Don't forget that a penny spent on ' fruit does more good than a shilling ! on buns or sweets. Don't walk five miles one day and stay at home all the next. Don't read till midnight;, one hour's sleep before twelve is worth five afterwards. Don't shut your bedroom window; fresh air is necessary for health. Don't expect physics and tonics to keep you well if you neglect the laws of health and hygiene.
