New Sea Wall. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 24 October 1914

New Sea Wall. The much-looked-for 'sea wall to protect the dwellings occupied by our fishermen near the water's edge in Swan Bay, on the western side of the Swan Island bridge, is now being erected. As it will be remembered, some time ago that part of our town suffered consider ably through the overflow of the high tides that sometimes rise in Swan Bay. The wall, which is a lengthy wooden construction, is ex pected to meet the requirements. Messrs Jas. McCoy & Sons are carrying out the work.

A Famous Lighthouse [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 24 October 1914

A Famous Lighthouse -...--...-.? Some interesting particulars to Queenscliff folk are given in the 'Pathfinder' concerning the new lighthouse on - the Fastnet Rock, four and a half miles from Cape Clear, off the south-west corner of the coast of Ireland. The rock is familiar to persons who have crossed from America to Europe,-as it is the first spot of Erin that they see on the eastward voyage. Of course, this is not the first time a light house has been put up on a wave washed rock, but it is the only time in the history of the world that £84,000 has been expended in erecting a beacon to warn and to guide the mariners. This modern pharos has been built by the Irish Lights Board, and is one of the most important on Ireland's coast, standing as it does in a direct route of Atlantic shipping which passes to the south of Ireland. The lantern on top of the big tower is of the latest- lighthouse lantern design, of dioptric type,. the light being made by a series of in candescent burners ...

Post early for the English Xmas Mail. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 24 October 1914

Post early for the - English Xmas Mail. Owing to the war, Queenscliff people wishing to send cards and Christmas greetings to friends in the United Kingdom will be obl liged to post earlier than usual.. Mails are now carried all the way by .yessels, instead, of being sent overland from European ports, and Sconsequently the period of trans mission has been considerably lengthened. Postal officials are always overworked in connection - with the despatch and receipt of Christmas mails, and their..position. is -likely to be ?ovrse this year, as the war has interferred materially with general arrangements. In o. .order,- therefore, that there may be no disappointment on the part of the public, the department trusts that people will send away their mails as early as possible. Those who prefer the Suez route will have to post by November 3, for trans mission per R.M.S. Khyber, which. will land mails in London on December 11. The next vessel to travel via Suez is the R.M.S. Medina. Mails fo...

Sunday Corner. THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 24 October 1914

Sunday aCorner. TIHe DAY. (From the' Daily Express '). By Henry Chappell.. The author of this magnificent poem is Mr Heliry Chappell, a railway porter at Bath. Mr Chappell is known to his com rades as the 'Bath Railway Poet.' You boasted the Day, and you toasted the Day, And now the Day has come. Blasphemer, braggart and coward all, Little you reek of the numbing ball, The blasting shell or the 'white arm's ' fall, As they speed poor humans home. You spied for the Day, you lied for the Day, And woke the Day's red spleen, Monster, who asked God's aid Divine, Then strewed His seas with the ghastly mine; Not all the waters of the Rhine, Can wash thy foul hands clean. You dreamed for the .Day,. you schemed .for the Day, Watch- how the Day will go. :-".:-- layir of a'e and youth and prime (.-CDefenceless slain for never a crime), Thou -art.steeped in blood . s a hog in. .....slime, . - False friend and cowardly foe.

GRAINS OF GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 24 October 1914

ClAINf OF COLD. -'The more wit one has the more ore S g'inality one finds among men. It is little troubles that wear the heart out. It is easier to throw a bomb shell a mile than a feather-even with artillery, Honest good humour is the oil and wine of a merry meeting, and there is no jovial companionship equal to that where the jokes are. rather small and the laughter abundant While many women abuse the love that is lavished upon them, the ave. rage woman lives upon a kind look, a tender tone, and an occasional caress, a.nd repays these with the devotion of a lifetime, Enthusiasm is the glow of the soul ; enthusiasm is the lever by which, men are raised above the average level and enterprise, and become capable ol goodness and benevolence which, but - ' ;t, .uld te guile impossible. Aim at perfection in everything, though in most things it is unattain able; for those who aim at it, and per severe, will come much nearer to it than those whose laziness and despon dency make them give ...

RAILWAY AND TRAMWAY MEN CLEMENTS TON C MR. CHARLES ROCK, of 42 Gladen Street. East Brunswick, 33 years in the Melbourne Tramway and O.B. Company, writes, on 2/4/12: CLEMENTS TONIC LTD. ."In December, 1911, I was laid up with pleurisy, so serious the doctor consulted another. For three days MY TEMPERA TURE WAS 104 DEGREES. MY LIFE WAS DESPAIRED OF, but through taking the doctor's advice I live to-day. He advised my wife to get CLEMENTS TONIC for me, as 'there was life in that medi cine.' When he said, 'life in Clements Tonic,' they were the TRUEST WORDS HE EVER UTTERED. I would have been in my last resting place only for that grand medicine. Had my wife paid £40 for the bottle she would kive had good ve~'. I have seen a lot of tesir-?cnials about CLEIrENTS TONIC in books and papers, but what I find fault with is that every writer has utterly failed to give a proper value of that medicine.

The Annual Show We have displayed during the week in our window the trophies in connection with the annual flower show, to take place on Wed nesday next. Competition for these is expected to be keen. In addi tion to the usual trophies which are contested during more than one year is a silver flower stand, pre sented by the Carlton Brewery, which has been alloted to the best display of sweet peas, which, we notice, depite the dry weather, are at present fairly plentiful in the district, and we expect there will be good competition, The rose bowls presented by Cr W.

OUR SUMMER SEASON. To the Editor. Sir,-I read, with great satisfaction, the suggestion put forward in your last issue concerning the necessity of dispelling any erroneous ideas, which exist in the minals of persons who have contem plated staying away from Queenscliff and Point Lonsdale, because of military re strictions. I know this is the case, and so was pleased to see the idea that the pro per view be placed before the people of the State, by an official source, that thebr is intended to be no interference with visitors parading parks and beaches, and otherwise enjoying themselves, just as they have done in years past. Let this be sent broadcast as early as possible, and many will not be denied their annual pleasure and Queenscliff and the Point will not suffer.-Your, &c., ON GUARD.
