PANAMA CANAL TRANSFORMS THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 30 January 1914
PANAMA CANAL TRANSFORMS THE WORLD. "I have coastcd a workshop SO kilo metres long, which is transforming tJit world. It is the creation of the globe which humanity is here revising and correcting: in order to brin^ two hemi spheres closer together by'&ono miles. "I disembarked only a few hour; ago, and I cannot yet describe any thing; but in the first disorder of lny impressions, and of my emotions in the chaos of my ideas and the dark ness of my perceptions, before X iearn or see any more, I reel the necessity of immediately taking a pen in hand through one of those impulses which at certain moments render a cry of ad miration and enthusiasm irresistible. "I cannot wait. It seems to mc- as . something pressing, impetuous, fatal, is being completed, and not a calcu lated"* work of construction." So begins an extraordinarily vivid account of a visit to the Panama Canal l»y Lnigi Barzini, in the "Daily Tele graph." He won some renowji in the Balkan war through his wonderful pe...
PORTER'S PLIGHT [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 30 January 1914
PORTER'S PLIGHT A special committee o£ four mem bers of the Battle (Sussex) Board of Guardians has been appointed to niako 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 anil brass, an ornament to the position he lias held for ten years. But time and fate $ealt unkindly with part of his 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 Mabeile Eserton, was defeated by one vote. Lady Malielle Eserton. one of Park er's cha...

Orchard Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 30 January 1914
Orchard Notes. The following information in regard to treatment of the orchard and garden, as taken from the Agricultural Journal, may prove interesting to our readers:— BUDDIXG. Young trees, or old trees that have been previously cut , down in pre paration for budding, may be worked over towards the end of the month. It is advisable to select dull, cool weather for this operation, so that the sap may run more freely, and that the weather will not havo too drying an effect on the bud. The operation of budding is a very simple one, and easily performed. To gain a successful end, the sap should be (lowing freely, consequently, when the cuts are made, the bark should " lift," or " run," easily, and without any clinging or tearing of the fibres, and it should separate freely from the wood. The buds selected should be firm and well matured, and should show no signs of premature decay whatever. They are cut from the scions with a shallow cut, and if any wood in the cutting be loft in, thi...

A wife asked the Chancery Court (Mr Justice Warrington) to declare that the house was now hers in which she and her husband had lived for 27 years after their' marriage which took place in '1SS3 (reports the "Daily Mail," November IS). The husband made a corresponding: claim on his own behalf. Mr H. Terrell, IC.C.

Fists, decanters, sticks, beer-glasses, and finally long knives came Into play. Suddenly one of the Navigation stu dents named Yokan screamed, and lell lifeless. The knife of one of his op ponents had pierced Ills heart. His scream and fall passed apparently un noticed, and the parties continued fig...
OVERWORKED NURSES LONG HOURS [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 30 January 1914
OVERWORKED NURSES LONG HOURS ! A large number of letters have been received by tho "Express" In support of a plea for overworked and under paid hospital nurses. The following is typical of many:— As a certllicated nurse, with experi ence lSoth 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 Chiislmas time a fancy dress bail was arranged for the staff after the "festivities" for the patients 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 Go...

PARSONS AND HUNTING VIEW OF ARCHBISHOP OF YORK. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 30 January 1914
PARSONS AND HUNTING VIEW OF ARCHBISHOP OF YORK. In dedicating on Sunday at iloor Monkton Church a memorial window to the late Rev. Charles Slingsby, who ivas killed while hunting, the Arch bishop of York defended the associa tion between hunting and the life of the professing Christian (says the "Daily News" of November 18). He would be a very bold man, nald the Archbishop, who would argue that hunting was .so cruel that it was abso lutely wrong. • "It is very difficult to express an opinion," said .Mr James Buckland, when seen, on the subject by a " Daily News" representative. "The advocates of the sport argue that it brings a j;reat deal of money into the country, and. again, the existence of the fox depends largely upon It. It is a question whe ther it is better that the fox should be shot by the farmers on sight or bred for hunting purposes." If hunting were to cease, in a few years the fox would be exterminated. Mr Buckland said he was acquainted with'a charming clergyman who h...
