HIS NEXT QUESTION, [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 26 February 1914

HiS NEXT QUESTION, 4 On one occasion, when an Eastern potentate was the guest of English Royalty, he was taken to Epsom to see the Derby, run. The dusky. ruler 'noted the enthu siasm when some thoroughbred in a close finish beat his rivals. He was quite curious about it. "Why are the people making all the noise ?" he asked. "Why, don't you see that has won the Derby?" answered one oi hie English companions. Then with gravity observed th& Oriental : . "Were they, not already aware that one horse can run faster than an other ?" The Emperor of Austria is rather given to boasting that to the plain manner in which lie lias always lived he owes his excellent health and long life. His Majesty is quite-con tent with milk and. porridge for his breakfast, and although a somewhat elaborate menu is prepared for luncheon when other members of the Austrian royal family are present, the Emperor is usually satisfied with a little cold poultry; followed by cheese, of which he is very fond., ...

A LETTER FROM NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 26 February 1914

A LETTER FROM NEW ZEALAND. A former resident of this district writing from New Zealand says : After a sojourn of over six months in Maori land, I have como to the con clusion that it is not a paradise for the working man. Since coining to New Zealand I have seen more idle men' knocking about than a person would see in Victoria in almost as many years. I cannot say I am impressed with the people as a ruler- A certain amount of prejudice prevails in some quarters against people from Australia. There is an exceptionally large amount of drunkenness, and, unfortunately, one sees more youthful ,'drunks' here than jn any place under,the sun. The No Licence laws in many districts are a farce. The towns, in the South land at any rate, ai'e deadly dull, and I really believe that if a ship load or two of some lively race were imported, New Zealand would ba the gainer. As a rule the ladies are far more, hard-faced and serious looking than their sisters in a more sunny land; climate may have som...

BUSH FIRES. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 26 February 1914

BUSH FIRES. The cool change of last week has, for the time being, allayed all fears regard ing further'damage by bush fires. Dur ing the early part of that memorable week, however, extensive damage was done particularly in the Cowwarr, Toongabbie, and Licola districts, where many settlers lost practically all their grass, and only valiant effort on the part of the fire fighters saved several homesteids, stacks, and much fencing. At one time the townthip of Toon gabbie was threatened, and a goods _train was held up for. a time between Cowwarr and Toongabbie, opposite Mr Williamson's homestead, while the crew assisted la saving the house. When- the fire swept down on the township a' cattle sale was in progress in Hodder'a yards. The sale was im mediately suspended, and buyers and sellers rushed away to assist in check ing the flames. Fortunately there was little or no wind, and they were suc cessful in their efforts. In the Glen garry district also considerable damage was done, hundre...

LIBERAL SOLIDARITY SELECTING SENATE CANDIDATES. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 26 February 1914

LIBERAL SOLIDARITY SELECTING SENATE CANDI DATES. There is every indication that . the -great political battle is at hand. The laBt issue of the f'Worki r," which is the most influential of all the Libor organs, contained little of any onse - -quence save repeated calls to aruis. Again and again, on thin page and on that, it warned members of the Labor party that they must be in their places ready/ to fight, determined to win." There is little doubt that the reply will be prompt; the party, has its first line, four hundred thousand adult unionists, who may be regarded as regulars, and behind them it has its volunteers.'

EXPORTING INFERIOR BUTTER. AN EXPERT'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 26 February 1914

EXPORTING- INFERIOR BUTTER. AN EXPERT'S REPORT. '.Mr EL W. Osborne, manager of the Western District; Co-operative Co., re ports, as the result of recent investi gations, very unfavorably upon the quality of Victorian and other Aus tralian butter on the London market. The inferior quality says the report, of a large proportion of the butter ex ported from Australia to Great Britain ia bringing discredit upon the Common wealth, and it is imperative that the producers and all who are associated with the dairying industry in this part of the world should realise the gravity of the position. The consumption of margarine has increased to an enor mous extent; blending factories have been established to supply what is recognised as a public requirement, and the marketing and distribution of our. produce cannot be performed satisfac- _ torily. ...

ELEPHANT STICKING. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 5 March 1914

ELEPHANT STICKING. A1'io.r the favorite sport of the Nuba Arabs in tlie Soudan, tile roughest football or the riskiest polo seems de plorably tame" and mild. In that far away corner of Africa, the most popu lar form of .amusement in sporting circles is- to hunt elephants as British people hunt pigs-on horseback and armed only with a spear. A writer in the "Morning Post" gives a graphic account of a morning's sport with these bold barbarians. Elephant hunting, under any circumstances is a strenuous and venturesome pursuit,, and the white sportsman, with the best - of beaters and the heaviest armaments, often carries his life in his hands. But the ganre as played by tlie Arabs of the Nuba Mountains is far more thril ling, and calls for an iron nerve, a superb horsemanship, and a reckless daring. . The elephants graze on the plains and river lands,grouped together in herds. The Arabs, lean, wiry ath letes, most of them, with keen eyes, leave their villages in the mountains in August, t...
