POLITICAL MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 5 June 1914
POLITICAL MEETING. On Wednesday evening, Mr. T. P. Holloway, organiser for the Australian Workers' Union, delivered an address in the Mechanics' Hall on current politics the case being, of course, represent ed from the Labor point of view. The chair was taken by Mr. Hambrook, and the attendance was only moderate. At the outset, the speaker invited those in the audience to interject as much as they liked, and the invitation was taken too literally, as at one time the procee l ings were hung up by volleys of inter jections, some of w::'cl took the form of questions to which answers were de manded " right off the reel." On the lecturer expressing indignation he was reminded that he had asked for interjections, and eventually the disaffect ed ones left the hall, and there was a calm after the storm which enabled the speaker to proceed with his address with-,ut further trouble. He claimed that the Labor Party were the only true Liberals, as the meaning of the word liberal was progressive...

From 1909 to 1911 the principal buyers were Americans, but since then the French buyers have been mostly operating. Molybdenum has been used for dyeing and pigmentati...

SRECENT MINING IN i CROAJINGOLONG. I-4 By H.

I first visited the Hard to-Seek goldfield, situated ybout three miles east south easterly from Wingan River crossing of the Orbost to Genoa main road. Here two quartz reefs (Brown's and Duffy's), in granite, have been prospected since the beginning of the year. The workings are on a ridge, rising in one part to a height of about 1,200 ft. above sea level. Brown's Reef (James Brown) is quartz with hematite, strikes N. 75 degrees E. dips 80 degrees to the northward, and has been sunk on nearly 20 ft. deep. The lode is 6 to 9in. thick near the surface, and about 12in. in the bottom, for the full 8ft. length of the shaft. Numerous red and brown clay veins cut through it. The walls are decomposed coarse grained graninite. Three tons of picked stuff carted to and crushed at Yambulla, N...

WOMEN'S INTERESTS [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 5 June 1914
(By "Ambrosine.") The sports' coat seems quite likely, for a short time at least, to oust the ubiquitous fur and plush coats and stoles. These coats are made of thick but'very light-weight blanket cloths in some beautiful and striking colorings. The most vivid tones are used without restraint, and the coats are cut dn very full and generous-lines. That they are exceedingly comfortable and warm goes without saying, and, just now, they have a cachet of smartness which ex ceeds even the most costly furs. Tie length of the new coat is not much below the knee, and they are made in Magyar or Raglan shape at the top, and gathered in closely to the tails. Great patch pockets and very wide revers and collar are other features, and generally they are trimmed solely with facings of a darker or hlghter shade of the same material. One of the fashions which was al ways pretty was that of the hat with a transparent crown. In those days the hat in question was composed en tirely of drawn black or w...
THE ORCHARD. HOW TO SAVE TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 5 June 1914
HOW TO SAVE TREES. In every apple orchard of mature trees are individual trees which are in imminent danger of splitting apart owing to a mechanically weak forma tion at union of trunk and body limbs. Many such trees have been suoed and others are fininng their way - the wood-pile. By a proper system ol trussing between opposing body in ,mhs this danger is entirely obviated and the tree nmade stronger than ethers not trussed thoughl normally formed. A seam, if not already a fissure, ex tending downward from top of trunk, indicates the weak tree which if a: tended to promptly wili be saved _roen disaster and an untimely end. Again, many trees contain bird holes or openings into body limbs or trunkl as a result either of careless or ignor ant pruning, failure to treat the larger wounds with paint. or feom mechanis cal injuries "as by storms or by waaggon or implement. All such openiugs aire a menace to the tree and endanger its usefulness and longevity. -Here is where a system ,.f tre...

WIT AND HUMOUR. THE PUZZLED PARENT. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 5 June 1914
WIT AND HUMOUR. THE PUZZLED PARENT. Parents are frequently much exercis ed in the endeavor to answer-their chil dren's questions. Occasionally they wriggle out of the difficulty as did Paterfamilias in the following story / "Father," said a boy, looking up from a book-"what is pride?" "Pride !" returned the father. "Pride Why-a--eh, surely you know what pride is? A sort of being stock up-a kind of-well, proud you know. Just get the dictionary - that's the thing to itTi you exaotly what it is. There's nothing like a dictionary, Johnny !" "Here it is," said the lad, after an exhausting search. " 'Pride -being proud.' " "'Um-yes, that's it," replied the father. "But--" "Well, look at 'proud'! That's the way--you'vo got to hunt these things out, my boy." "I've got it,". answered Johnny "Pre-pri-pro--why- " "What does it say?" " 'Proud-having pride.'
