Menace to Public Health. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 19 March 1914
Menace to- Public Health. -o There is indignation at the prac tice being followed at the local wharf of depositing all the offal from fish in the Moyne river. As the river has little current to the sea, -the offal sinks to the bed of the river but is stirred ut every time the steamer enters and leaves the Moyne, The marvel is that fever is not more prevalent in the town, and it is incredible that the local board of health, or medical officer, or inspector of nuisances, or Wharf overseer has allowed the objection able practice to continue, during the summer, at all events. Unless the refuse is conveyed out to sea, our informant states that the ports and harbours department and the cen tral board of health will be asked to take action in the matter. The naval authorities deny the truth of a statement, that the Warship Sydney will require repairs-.costing £20,000 through the destruction of the boilers by the use of Australian coal. A public meeting is to be held at Byaduk on Monday eve...

AEROPLANE. ON ROOF Paris has got over being surprised at the sight, of flying machines (says 'Lloyd's Weekly News" of January 18). but the population of Javel, a working luarter between the Eiffel Tower and the aerodrome of Issy-les-Moulineuax. ;ot excited last week when they saw an aeroplane plunge downwards over the streets and finally crash on to the roof of a factory in the Rue Saint Charles. There was a rush to the fac tory, for it was feared that the accident was serious, but the crowd were met by the aviator, M. Gilbert, who, quite calm, and without a scratch, was de scending the stairs, which he had reached through the hole made in the roof by the falling aeroplane. M. Gilbert said his engine had failed. HEe looked about for a landing-place, but could see nothing but houses, factories, and market garden plots. The broad road would have served his purpope, but there' were a 'number of children scattered .along it.- staring .in wonder at the aeroplane 'so close above them. As ...
A BOGUS CAPTAIN [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 19 March 1914
A BOGUS CAPTAIN An emulator of the famous Koepenick was yesterday-sentenced at the East Eent Quarter Sessions at Canterbury to five years' penal servitude (says "The Daily Telegraph" of January 7). Pri soner, who was described as Albert Smith, alias Brown, alias Parick. Mur phy, mariner, aged 50, pleaded not guilty to stealing a watch and other trinkets from a Swalecliffe lady. In the course of a remarkable sketch jf his career he mentioned many great achievements, including the gaining of the Victoria Cross, which he claimed to have performed. Even more extraor dinary was the version of the same career given by the police subsequently. Evidence of the. prosecutrix was that Smith came to her house at Swalecliffe, Whitstable, on November 30, and asked for lodgings, representing that he was Captain Brown, and that he had been recommended to her by a Captain Col lins. In reply to a request for a de posit he promised to let her have it the following morning. The next day, hear ing that ...
BERNHARDT HONORED [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 19 March 1914
BiERNHARDT HONORED Mme. Sarah Bernhardt is a Knight of the Legion or Honor (says "The Daily Express" of January 16). The news was telephoned to her last night while she was resting between two acts of M. Tristan Bernard's play, "Jeanne Dore." It became known in the theatre before' the play was over, and when the curtain fell the audience remained in the theatre and gave the new Knight of the Legion a rousing ovation. Then the company collected round the great actress, and she was the re cipient of a touching attention. In anticipation of the event the mem bers of the company had bought a Cross of the Legion of Honor set in brilliants to be ready to pin it on Mme. Bernhardt's breast as soon as she had the right to wear it. It was two in the morning before the new "Chevalier" got home, and when she arrived she found 50 or more of her friends waiting to congratulate her, and the whole house heaped up with flowers from friends who had not been able to come. To-day she received so many t...

BLIND VICAR OF LYTHAM [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 19 March 1914
BLIND VICAR OF LYTHLAM The Rev. Canon Hawkins, M.A., has announced that after holding the office of Vicar of Lytham for forty-four years he was about to lay down the burden of pastoral duty. For twenty-two years, according to "The British Weekly", Canon Hawkins has been blind, but never has a man borne an affliction more bravely. He .has never shirked any duty belonging to his office, and with the years he had steadily grown in the breadth of his outlook on all public questions. He has lived on the most cordial terms with his Free Church neighbors, and has done much to 'strengthen good feeling among all classes in the community.

POISONED CAKE EATEN In returning a verdict of "Acciden tal death," after the inquiry at West Ham on Saturday, into the death of Albert Challingsworth, 18 months, who ate a piece of poisoned cake intended for. rats, the jury (says "Lloyd's Weekly News" of January 18), sug gested that the sanitary authority should be informed of the occurrence. They warned the ratcatcher to be more careful how he left his cakes about in future. The baby's parents live in Cleaner road, Custom House, and the mother said that when she took the house about six months ago the place was infested with rats. She complained to the landlord, who sent a ratcatcher to the premises, and for a day or so everything was quiet. Then she saw a big rat run down the curtain when she came down in the morning. She again complained to the landlord, who sent some men to open the drains. After this the rats "all came in the kitchen," and on January 7 the rat catcher called again. There were seve ral large rat holes in the kit...

SCHOOL CHILDREN'S HEALTH MEDICAL OFFICER'S REPORT [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 19 March 1914
SCHOOL CHILDREN'S HEALTH MEDICAL OFFICER'S REPORT The annual report, for 1912. of the Chief Medical Officer of the Board of Education, contains (says "Public Opinion"), an exhaustive account of the measures which are being taken throughout the country to safeguard the health of school children. Alto gether there are 1111 medical officers in the school service in England and Wales, as compared with 943 in 1911; 82 are women and there are 742 nurses also engaged. The Chief Medical Officer, Sir George Newman, states that it is un fortunately true that uncleanliness still occupies a large share of the time, thought, and energy of the offi cers of the school medical service, though it is encouraging to note that throughout the country the returns show a decided and progressive im orovement, and that the grosser forms of uncleanliness are now rare as com pared with the conditions that pre vailed when medical inspection was Instituted in 1908. Many of the medical officers' re ports draw at...

LEILA AND HER LOVER BY MAX PEMBERTON. Published by Arrangement with Ward, Loek and Co. Ltd., Lond. and Melb. (All Rights Reserved.) III. It was nearly one o'clock when they returned to the cottage-Leila was wvaiting for them on the road. She must have run in and out ot the cot tage a hundred times since they went; perhaps she had reproached herself as many because she let them go. It is true that she. thought she knew all about Sir Hugh Donald, bar onet, of Aberfeldy Castle. Why, sure Iv every one at Newcastle could tell you his story and she heard it twen ty times since the yacht Christabel set his party ashore. ýýe was a very rich man and she was so poor. The simple estimate of riches and poverty came swiftly to the woman's mind for the child's sake. Perchance she was animated by the hope that she would make a friend of this man-she who needed a friend so sorely. The great car came slowly up to 'he cottage, Desdy standing as it came to a halt, and beginning already to tell her of ...

BLIND MUSICIANS CHILDREN AS COMPOSERS [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 19 March 1914
BLIND MUSICIANS CHILDREN AS COMPOSERS Those who attended yesterday morn ing's-'sitting at the St. Paul's Girl's School, Hammersmith, of the Vacation Conference on Musical Education (says "The Daily Telegraph" of January 8), saw and heard a remarkable demon stration. It was given by a group of i boy and girl pupils from the Royal Normal College for the Blind, under i the direction of Mr Horace Watling, one of the professors, himself deprived of sight, at that famous institution. Primarily; 'the performance of thesel -blind juveniles was intended to illus trate a lecture by Miss Nancy Gilford on "The Creative Faculty in the Pupil: How to Make Use of it as a Valuable Agent in Teaching." Certainly, the demonstration achieved that purpose, but it did much more. It showed the marvellous intensification, as it were, of the faculty of hearing, and the ex treme sensitiveness to niceties of1 rhythm and to tonal distinctions that seem tc compensate many of those born blind for their lack of vi...
