TURF TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 15 October 1914

(By "FtaningtoD.") TURF TOPICS. Some idea of the dearth of good horses in hand at Flemington just now was gained on Saturday, when the book ings to Caulfield from headquarters only numbered about half the general aver age for Guineas Day. James Scobie usually has anything up to a dozen horses ready for this meeting, but he only put four representatives into the field on Saturday and had nothing to tako part in races like the Caulfield Stakes, the Guineas, and Toorak Han dicap. For a number of years until this season Scobie has had a represen- ~ tative iu each of these races. Another prominent trainer who had a light day ou Saturday was W. S. Hickenbotham, for he only had one horse running. . It was strange to see the Caulfield Stakes, Guineas, and Toorak being contested without the two stables mentioned tak ing a hand. There is nothing very impressive looking about Sir Alwynton, which has for weeks been a good deal spoken of in connection with the Caulfield Cup. The Sydney-sider is ...

TERRIBLE DEATH OF A LADY PARACHUTIST. SURPRISING EVIDENCE AT A SHEFFIELD INQUEST. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 15 October 1914

TERRIBLE DEATH OF A LADY PARACHUTIST. SURPRISING EVIDENCE AT A SHEIU'lELD INQUEST. Edith 13> ogives, aged 28 lost her life at Sheffield through the failure of her parachute to act. It appear ed that the deceased made her first parachute descent on Whit Monday. Miss Maud Brookes, who has had 14 years' experience of parachuting, said that the deceased, her sister, had wished for some time to become a parachutist, but until this year her friends had discouraged her. This was her first ascent in a bal loon, but she was well instructed as to what she must do. The accident must have occurred through t.ho ropes of the parachute twisting. She was a healthy girl not subject to fainting, and was a trained gym nast. Professor Lempriere, proprietor of the balloon, stated that he could not account .for the accident unless deceased fainted and failed to launch herself properly. It was usual for a ' beginner to go up alone for the first time, there being no way of practising parachuting. He had...

HEAVIEST LETTER-BAGS. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 15 October 1914

HEAVIEST LETTER-BAGS. .T. President Roosevelt probably re ceives more mail matter than any other mun in the world. It is cal culated that if he were obliged to buy the postage on all mail matter received at the White House, the cost, would be one-sixth o( his sal ary. King Edward has a daily quota of 1,000 letters and 3,000 papers, doubtless a heavy lax on his atten tion. The Czar and the German Emperor receive from 500 to 600 a day and the young Queen of Holland strug gles with a daily burden of between 100 and 150 letters. No doubt it is well for the rulera of the world that they can command efficient staffs of secretaries whoso duty . it is to relieve them of the bulk of the worry caused by their tremendous correspondence.

DRAINING BENEFITS LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 15 October 1914

DRAINING BENEFITS LAND. There is no class of laud that drain ing will not beneiit. The way to save having to buy up adjoining land is to drain the preseut holdings, because in tills way its area is practically doub led. it is a. mistaken theory that drainage is only neoessary upon water logged land, because one of the moat valuable features of draining land is connected with getting water into it. it is no doubt true that the first and ; most immediate necessity for draining ' is to relieve it of a surplus of mois ' fcure. Tho remedy for this state of 1 affairs lies in the thorough drainage 1 and opening up of the land. Neither | richness of soil, nor eligibility of situ I ntion, nor the most painstaking eulti ' vation will avail much if the land is I naturally wet, or unless it has been re ; lieved of excess of dampness, however caused. Water properly directed is a. vital and cultural force of the first import ance to agriculture, and not the least of the advantages to be gained fr...

Ballan Town Common. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 15 October 1914

Ballan Town Common. There has beeu a simmer of excite ment during the week amongst those interested in stock depasturing on the common. Allegations as numerous as the ballets in Belgium were flying about, and the name of one public man has been freely used—wo believe without auy justification whatever. However, when he arrives on the ' scene, there is likely to be something doing. Mr Kelly, shire secretary, has rightly insisted that the resolu lution of the council must be observ ed, and he instructed the herdsman to immediately notify householders grazing more than two head of stock that same must be removed .without d«lay. This, we understand, Mr Bence has done. ; The resolution referred to, which was passed on Jano.-14tU, 1909, l'cadB as follows:— By Crs Gascard and Myers—That every householder, who is a ratepay er, within the Bullan township radius be allowed to ruu two cows or horses on the common, at a charge of 2/6 per quarter for cows and 5/ per head for horses.

A MOTOR FREAK AND ITS DISASTROUS END. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 15 October 1914

A MOTOR FREAK AND ITS DIS ASTROUS END. .T. A few weeks ago the Baker Elec tric Motor Vehicle Company turned out a new and peculiarly-shaped machine, destined to " cut " all motor records. It was shaped like an upturned canoe, keel uppermost, on four wheels, and presented a most weird appearance, but when it was turned out for its first public trial on the Soutlifield Boulevard at Staten Island, New York, it broke more records than one. Going like a cyclone the untried freak automobile, while smashing a world's record, plunged full-tilt into a throng of spectators. Thousands looking on saw men and women go down like ninepins. One man's dead body was sent flying 15ft. into the air. It seemed certain that at least a score had been killed. As if by a miracle only one was killed and nine injured. The freak racer was making a run that would have marked an epqcb in automobile racing if it had been finished. It was going at the rate of a mile in 47 seconds—4 2-5sec. better than Fournier's b...
