Discounting Racecourse Winnings. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 12 June 1914

Discounting Racecourse Winnings. A curious kind of discount business is carried on in connection with (he French "I'ari-Mutuel" system of bet ling on the rncccourse. It .should bo explained tbnt Oio.se who wish to hot on n French racecourse have to take a ticket for five, ten, or City francs nt one of the olliccs of the "Fnri-Mntuel."

Compulsory Training For Girls. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 12 June 1914

Compulsory T rain ing For Girls. Should Australian girls be brought tinder «ome system of compulsory training to fit them to share in. the defence of the country in time of war? This is the query raised by the editor cf "Evorylady's Journal" for June, and answered by a number of loading citizens. The views of these notable people m tto Terv interesting and instruc tiro reading Summed up, the general opinion seems to lie that, while it is altogether inadvisable to' Kire girls any form of Military Train- . ing, it would be a first-class tl ing | for t ho girls of Austr ilia if a course! in Domestic Science ware made com- \ pulsory.' j This forms tha main article in tho i June issue of "Evorylady's Journ il," | but it is by no means the sole aUrnc- j tivo feature.

JERUSALEM. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 12 June 1914

JERUSALEM. Very shortly the sacred streets of the Holy City will hum with tho noise of electric; cars, and its more important thoroughfares will be illuminated at night with the brilliant electric filament. ]ts old picturesque walls and massive towors are to be pulled down, and tho city is to have an adequate water supply. The rapidity with which Jerusa lem is extending, through the return of tho Jews in such lnrgo numbers to tho city of their forefathers, has (says an "Express" correspondent) rendered these improvements neces sary. i Indeed, to the north and west of the old city thero have sprung up, within the last decade, largo Jewish colonies, populous residential sections, as well as convents, hos pices, institution.';, schools, (uul other buildings, with the. result that, to-day there is a greater Jerusalem without tho walls than within.

FOOLHARDY GUIDES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 12 June 1914

FOOLHARDY GUIDES. Tho guides who conduct tourists to Vesuvius often go to ridicu lous lisKs to nmuse their patrons. A favourite expedient is' to take an egg and put it into a. small fis sure in the mountain side to ho boiled by the heat. Tho tourist is not allowed to leave tho path and go to Uio fissure, so does not ro alise that tho guide, in order to roach r point whero tha trick is practicable, has to walk across a layer of lavn which is so tbin that it may break at any moment, should it do so, tho man's lc^s will go through into actually mol ten lava, with fatal results. Tlio Italians seem to think nothing of the risk, and gladly undergo it to earn a iranc, or even for bra vado's sake, lo nmuse tho tourist who is employing them. Ono of tho most flaring exploits on record is that of a steeple climber, who, some .years ago, con ceived (ho novel idea of celebrating 1 tho Kmperor's birthday by clirnb | in# tho steeple of St. .Stephen's at I Vienna, and tliero hoist ing a flag.
