Out All Night. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 7 November 1914
Out All Night. The other evening a well known Queenscliff lad, accompanied by two officers of the Infantry, went for a sail as far as the north end of Swan Island, and whilst returning the boat went ashore on a sand bank. It was getting late and too dark for them to. take the risk of another sand bank, and so they decided to ,stay till daybreak, ap parently none the worse for the night's outing. _ , . ?J , ..
Germany's Responsibility. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 7 November 1914
Germany's Reapon sibility. MNany ideas have been expressed regarding Germany's position in this wa-, and exonerating the German people as a whole. The following letter.published in a home - .paper, is perhaps expressive of the general idea: 'The war spirit-the desire for naval and military and commercial supremacy -is. an obsession amongst the great bulk of the German nation, and this has beenx fostered chiefly in the great German Uuiversities, Young Germany, after passing through these establishments, has. infected the whole nation with the idea of supremacy, and taught that supremacy could only be gained by brute force of the German Empire. 'All Germany is to blame, and all Germany must be made to pay. The money which goes to maintain her Army and Navy must serve to pay the war debt of the four countries now at war 'with her; her provinces Alsace and Lor raine imust go to France, with a slice to Belgium; Deumark should get her own back, with it the Kiel Canal; and so on.

ELECTRICITY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 7 November 1914
ELECTRIGITY. The necessary application tunder the Electric Light and Power Act is published. Ratepayers will therefore understand that the mat ter of electricity for Queenscliff is fully in hand. The proposed area for which the order-in-council is sought is for the whole of Queenscliff, and the streets in which the council contemplates laying down or erect ing electric lines are mentioned.

When the order is granted, which is anticipated it will be in due time, it is contemplated the work will be put in hand shortly after the usual details are -ar ranged.
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 7 November 1914
QUEENSCLIFF has in former years been visited by a large number of trade picnics from Melbourne. It is doubtful at present if these will not be discontinued for this season, Tlhere has been st~ch a strain on the monetary resources of the gene ral community, coupled with the fact that because of the unsettled state of things, thousands of work men are out of employment, whilst those who were permanent are now on half time, there will be little funds available to devote to picnics to the seaside, as much as they are desired. This is unfortunate for Queenscliff, Sorrento and Pt ILons dale. The workmen of Melbourne will be the sufferers, as well as business folk of the seaside, if the present, intention is carried into effect. There is, however, an effort now being made to obtain, a reduc tion of 20 per cent. in the charter fare from shipping companies. They have declined this up to the present and offered a donation instead. " It is just possible an ar rangement will be made between the...

(ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.) THE MESHES OF FATE. -------- OR, -, THE CURSE OF THE BLUE DIAMONDS. -------+----- By Hedley Richards, Author of "The Mine Master's Heir," "Time, the * ' Avenger," etc., etc. PART 15. CHAPTER XXVIII. LAST WORDS. S-The first week in November had gone before Jack and Patricia were miarried. It was a grand wedding; not only the villagers, but people for miles round came to see the man who was to have been hanged, mar ried to the girl who would have been the murdered man's bride, and all pronounced Pat very charming, per haps a little frail-looking, but there was no mistake about the happiness which shone in her eyes and bright ened her delicate face. The honey moon was to be spent in the south of' France, but the young couple were expected home before Christmas. It was a day of feasting and re joicing ; there were tents in Wynth shay Park, where the tenants and workpeople were entertained, and after tea there was a grand ddsplay of fireworks, and it was not until ...

OUR TROOPS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 7 November 1914
OUR TROOPS. The training troops were again on the move on Wednesday and the town quite enlivened on their departure and arrival. Queenscliff has the full benefit of the changing of troops, bZing, spectators of the full round of change. The batta lion which left on Wednesday was here hardly a week, and it is under stood that the present troops will stay a similar period, after which anything might take place-no one seems to know definitely. There is mention that a portion of Broad meadows training work is to be transferred to Queeiscliff. The present battallions..(66th and 67th)., are the last of the full round of, Citizens troops in this State and the general impression coupled with military knowledge, is that the 'boys' of Victoria as young soldiers are a credit for deplortment and general behaviour, and there can be no question whatever that a few years of t aining and discipline will add infinite strength to the defence of Australia.
"THE SWEET TOOTH. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 7 November 1914
"THE SWEET TOOTH. Very many adults, and children with no exception have a pronounced liking for sweets, 'metaphorically de scribed as having a "sweet tooth." We have our respective preferences, some of us like the flavour of pep permint, and others do not. Choco late is almost universally relished, but to a minority it is as "caviare to the general." Americans have the sweet tooth in excess of ourselves. They include all varieties of sweets. in the generic word "candy." Here is a recipe for making a cer tain candy capable of many varia tions to suit individual taste. In gredients required are : One pound of loaf sugar, one ounce of butter, half a pint of water, flavouring as ,ou please. Boil sugar' and water for two, or three minutes till a soft ball is formed when rolled between the fin ger .and thumb ; add the butter, and stir until it is dissolved ; put in the flavouring, remove the stewpan from the fire, and: add the sugar by de grees until the mixture becomes thick and white; p...
THE ORCHARD. PEAR MITE (PHYTOPTUS PYRI). [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 7 November 1914
THE ORCHARD. PEAR MITE (PHYTOPTUS PYRI). This tiny mite which is impercep tible to the naked eye, is a source of unlimited annoyance to the pear-. grower. An examination of trees at tacked by the pest will disclose the fact that many of the young leaves are damaged by small brownish blis ters. These are produced by the in sect, which gnaws its way between the two outer skins of the leaf, and immediately commences to feed and multiply therein. The spots, though small at first, gradually extend, un til finally, owing to several blisters becoming confluent, the whole of the leaf may appear as a blackened blis tery mass. This is brought about by the rapid multiplication of the insects within, which burrow through the tissues, sucking up the juices. A bad infestation is usually followed by premature shedding, of the foliage, to t the ultimate detriment of both the tree and its fruit. Regarding the life history of this pest the late Mr. Crawford says : "There are two ways in which the mit...
WRONG CARD. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 7 November 1914
WRONG CARD. It was a small railway station. The village was about a mile away. "May I leave this box here for an:, hour ?" asked the traveller of a por ter. "I want to make a call in the village." "Certainly, sir," replied the por. ter; "but could you give me a card to put on it ?" "I'm afraid I have not 'got one," replied the traveller. Pulling an old card from his poc ket, the king of hearts, he continued : "This will be a means of identifi cation." "Very good, sir," said the porter. In due time the traveller returned, and was looking about for his box, when he observed *the porter coming towards him, grinning. "My word, sir, that was a good trick." "What was a good trick ?" asked the traveller. "Why, sir, a gentleman came along just after you' had gone, took an ace of hearts out of his pocket, and put it on top of your king, and he went oil with your box, sir." ,, n - , Candles will last double the usual time if treated in the following way,: Take each candle by the wick and give...
Queenscliff Fifty Years Ago. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 14 November 1914
'4r :iQueenscliff Fifty Years SAgo. .: he following is an extract from the files of the Geelong Adver tiser: ,:'Within the last three days two fine French ships, namely, La Reine D'Anjou, Capt Bethune, and - Ta Reine Blanche, Capt Chollet, fiotm Calcutta, have called here for drders; loaded with rice, and both cionsigned to Messrs Gilchrist, Hall and Co., Sydney. The former ves sel arrived on Thursday night and was ordered on to Sydney, but in .consequence of having sprung the S::foremast in the Bay of Bengal, the *captain thought it advisable to go on to Melbourne and take in a new foremast first. The agents having beeri made acquainted with the dis "abied state of the vessel, refused to take the cargo to Melbourne unless .5s '6d per ton was deducted off the freight. To this the captain objects. A fine point may arise if .this vessel does not break bulk and does not enter at the Customs. There is no rule in the port regula -tions to enforce payment of harbor -dues unless bulk is br...

Sunday Corner. Promotion by Faithfulness. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 14 November 1914
: Sunday Corner. Promotion by Faithfulness: We are always on trial in this world. God's promotion are all in the lines of fidelity. When we do well with one talent, he puts two into our .hand. When we show ourselves.faithful and capable- with two, he adds two more. This is true not only of ordinary business capacities and fidelities, but also of moral and spiritual powers and privileges. When we do anything well, God increases our respon sibilities, puts new trusts into our charge. But failure in any testing brings the loss of the trusts already in.?our hands. If we would grow into great usefulness, we must be ever watchful that we fail in no duty or triaw.
BIG DEALS. Some Famous Spot-Cash Transactions. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 14 November 1914
BIG DEALS,. Some Famous Spot-Cash Transactions. The sudden purchase. of the Picea' - dilly Hotel for the sum of £500,000 is a remarkable instance of a huge concern changing hands in a few moments. It was easy enough for Mr. Mallaby-Deeley to draw a cheque,' for half a million, but the compli cated nature of the deal is only ap parent when one tries to realise: what half a million of money' really is. But half a million down is by noc means a reckord. There have been: numerous sales' of great English es tates during the last twenty years, and more than £500,000 has been paid on at least two occasions. One es tate alone--the Kensington-realised over £~600,000, and the whole transs action did not cover two hours. Even within the past three months: two estates changed hands for £250,000 apiece. Mr. Pierpont Morgan has been aei sociated with many big. deals Some years ago he was shown a collection of old masters, and promptly pur- chased the lot for one- milliq: pounds sterling, drawing ...
