A True Australian Magazine. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 28 January 1914
A True Australian Magazine. The February issue of "Life" is the breeziest and most widely representative number of this popular Australian magazine we have ever seen. The frontis piece depicts a series of advent ures with a kangaroo on a way back station in New South Wales ; a railway president in a stirring sketch shows how the breakdown gang of a great railway , system works; Mr A. H. E. Mattingley, the premier Nature photographer in Australia, outlines in a succes- j sion of wonderful pen and cam era pictures the life-story of the penguin; Mr Carlyle Smythe writes a vigorous article on Aus tralia as a colonising power, and an anonymous writer critises free ly the administration of the Nor thern Territory. The fictron and political departments are well re presented. Of what might be. called the outside features of "Life," the. most notable this month is a fine review of the story of Scoft's journey to the South Pole, published by Smith, filder and Co. The department al side of " L...
SUDDEN DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 28 January 1914
SUDDEN DEATH. Residents of the Omeo district will feel the deepest regret at the sudden, death of Mrs James M'Coy, of Albion Vale, Ensay— so unexpectedly did it take place. Mrs M'Coy has always been a re markably healthy woman, bring up a large family and working hard with her husband to estab lish that competence in the world's goods which they so rich ly deserved. The- whole family are among the most respected asd esteemed in the* Ensay dis trict, Mr M'Coy having selected there in the early days and Mrs M'Coy being a daughter of Mr. M'DougaM, almost the first of the selectors in the district.. sAbout six months- ago Mrs -M'Coy had a slight illness which necessitated the attention of the doctor^ bul since then she had been quite well and able to attend tal\er household duties with her usual cheerfulness.- On Wednes day she had been working all day,, and' after tea sat down in the-sitting room while her daugh ter, Maggie, who was the only other person in the house, was washing up.

IRRIGATION IN GIPPSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 28 January 1914
IRRIGATION IN GIPPSLAND. There can be no greater fallacy than is contained in the sugges tion that owing to -its heavier rainfall Gippsland can dispense with the irrigation ditch. As a matter of fact, in every year it pays the Gippsland farmer to ar tificially apply water, while in three years out" of every five,, crops suffer severely because of the want of moisture at a critical stage in their development. In, 1912, for instance, there was a prolonged spell.of dry weather, lasting practically from' the" be ginning of the year till 'June. The arid conditions that prevailed were the cause of many crop fail ures, while the dairy. Output of even the richest portion of Gipps land was severely reduced. This year again extremely dry condi tions have set in! There has been no rain worth mentioning' for the last six weeks, and, if the dry. spell continues Jor long, the out look for m'arize and sugar beet growers will be far from encour aging. Yet while thousands of the richest acres of Gip...
THE ORBOST RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 28 January 1914
THE 03503T KAiL.WAY, A deputation representing the residents of Orbost last week waited on the Minister of Rail ways with a request that the Bairnsdale to Orbost railway line bo extended from the - present temporary terminus, which is about .a mile out of Orbost, into the town. Mr Cameron, M.L.A., introduced the deputation, and it was explained that the site of the temporary terminus, on \ which the Railway department intended to erect a station, was soft alluvial ground washed down by the floods. I' was a common occurrence for it to be flooded to a great depth, and only recently' hree cottages situated near it were swept away. The location was too far from the town, and an area of land which could be obtained . at roughly the same price in the town area would be eminently , more suitable. This ground was above flood level, and would give 'a solid foundation. In reply to the objection that the railway would have to cross the Snowy river to get to the town, the deputationists pleaded...
ST. CLEMENT [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 28 January 1914
ST. CfcESIEXT St. Clement, whose festival was ob served yesterday at the numerous London churches of this dedication, is associated with two widely different classes of mankind, choirboys and blacksmiths. Formerly the choris ters of Ripon used to go about the Minster after service on St. Clement's Day, and offer an apple with a sprig of box in it to everybody present, for which they expected a "tip." Blacksmiths, not content with St. Dun stan, also claimed St. Clement. Miss Charlotte Yonge has recorded that she used to.be disturbed when writ ing her novels, first at Otterbourne and afterwards at Hursley, by the blacksmiths exploding gunpowder on their anvils in honor of St. Clement's Day.

VOLTURNO DISASTER | CAPTAIN'S ORDEAL "Within Ave minutes of the fire being reported to the' captain flames reaching; .to a height of thirty or forty feet/were .leaping out of the hatchway leading to, No. 1 hold." This statement, made yesterday at the Board of Trade in quiry, held at tile Caxton Hall, into the. disaster to the Volturno, illustrated .the extraordinary nature o£ the tra gedy which those in charge of the ship had. to face (reports the "Daily Ex press" of November 27). This appalling suddenness in the de velopment of the Are was due in a large measure to the inflammable na ture of the cargo, which was described by Mr Acland, K.C., who represented the Board of Trade, as follows:— "In No. 1 hold there were stowed drums and barrels of various chemi cals, and tar oil and other oils. Above that were rags. Above them peat moss, and *>ove that straw-covered bottles, so that when the fire started there was material for making the astonishing blaze which resulted. "In the seco...

THE HORSE POINTS FOR JUDGES EXPERT ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 28 January 1914
TOE HORSE POINTS FOB JUDGES EXPERT ADVICE. At the Kybybollte Branch of the South Australian Agriculture Bureau Mr W. J. Colebatch, B.Sc., Agric. M.R.C.V.S. (Superintendent of Agricul ture In the South-East), gave a prac tical demonstration on the points of a horse. Most farmers, he said, possess a fair knowledge of the general charac teristics to be looked for in a horse oI good quality .but few would care to un dertake the responsibilities of show-ring judging, or to officiate in any capacity in which their knowledge of the points of a l.orse would be brought und^r 'he searchlight of public criticism. This may be due to natural reluctance to publicity or to a want of confident, which may be attributed in some cases to a want of method or system in the process of judging. No matter what the circumstances may be—whether the examination be made in the show ring or sale yard, the aim should be to adopt some definite and thorough system of working. Once adopted, the method should, as fa...
PORTER'S PLIGHT [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 28 January 1914
PORTER'S. PLIGHT A special committee o_f four mem bers of the Battle (Sussex) Board of Guardians has been appointed to make a searching inquiry into the question of the workhouse porter's trousers, af ter six months' constant service, were pronounced beyond repair. In April on the advice of a Local Go vernment Board Inspector, the Battle guardians decided to put William George Parker, the porter, into uniform in order to maintain the dignity of the ancient town. They invited tenders and voted £3, and in due course Parker appeared in all the glory of blue and brass, an ornament to the position he has held for ten years. But time and fate dealt unkindly with part of hit* uniform, and to save the dignity of Battle he asked for a new pair of trousers. A few days ago the guardians met to discuss the matter, but, like Parker's trousers, the meeting was divided, and the trouser amendment, moved by Lady Mabelle Egerton, -was defeated by one vote. Lady Mabelle Egerton, one of Park er's champ...
OVERWORKED NURSES LONG HOURS [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 28 January 1914
OVERWORKED NURSES LONG HOURS A large number of letters have been received by the "Express" in support of a plea for overworked and under paid hospital nurses. The following Is typical of many:— As a certificated nurse, with experi ence both of London and of provincial hospitals, let me thank you for taking up the hard case of the nurses gen erally. Few persons really realise what nurses' hours are. The night work is, as a rule, twelve hours seven nights a week, and Bank Holidays bring no respite. The aproaching Christmas holidays mean to nurses only extra work and extra expense in the way of helping to pay for the decoration of their wards. It is really a horrible time, so far as they are concerned. At one hospital I was In at Christmas time a fancy dress ball was arranged for the staff after the "festivities" for the parents were over. But, alas! every one — doctors and nurses alike — was so "dead beat" that it was quietly allowed to fall through. I cannot understand why one Govern...
MOHAMMED'S FOLLOWERS [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 28 January 1914
MOHAMMED'S FOLLOWERS The recent conversion of an English peer to Mohammedanism is a remin der that the Mohammedans in this country are sufficiently numerous and influential to support several places of worship (says the "Westminster Gaz ette"). Three mosques are In existence, in England. Those at Liverpool and Woking: have long been noted for th«lr exquisite appointments. Of more recent date is the one situ ated In Bayswater. The doors are gilded in a similar way to those of the world-famous Taj Mahal at Agra, built by Shah-Jahan. In thoEast End there Is a sacred temple of A1 Ahmed, where the faithful meet once a year to go through a curious ceremony in honor of the Prophet
CHAPTER II. A Mother Pays. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 28 January 1914
CHAPTER II. A Mother Pays. Pleading fatigue to Netta, he went upstairs and looked himself in his room. There, with clenched fists and pantiug breath, he asked himself how justice could be done—to himself, to Netta, and, with as much mercy as he could brine himself to show, to his "onco familiar friend." How subtly treacherous he had been, that Charley—as ho had affectionately called him. During those lonely nights in their hut, when they were shepherd ing vast flocks in the plains or 011 the low hills, he had told Charley his life, from A to Z; and recently he had made him the confidante of "his love for Netta, and of his resolve to once more try his luck at the diggings, for her sake. He recalled Charley's farewell. He, Jim, was seated on his faithful Jenny, his blankets and miner's wardrobe packed "fore and aft" his saddle. After affectionate farewells to old Nathan and Netta, ho had started 011 Iub long ride to Mount Berry diggings, walking the impatient Jenny at first, 60 as to ...
