THE Benalla Independent. PUBLISHED ON TUESDAYS AND FRIDAYS "Stands close to all But leans on none." FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 1914. GAS V. ELECTRICITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 27 November 1914
THE Benalla Independent. Published on Tuesdays and Fridays "Stands close to all But leans on none." FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 1914. GAS V. KLECTRICiTY.. A very strong move is being made to induce the ratepayers of Benalla to accept electricity as their illuminaut at the expiration of the gas contract, which takes place in July 1915. Already a list has been taken round, more particularly to the traders of the town, with a view to secure signatures to strengthen the hands of the Central riding members in placing their case before the council. Really it appears to us that the signatories in the greater number of cases have signed something the full import of which either they have not Studied, or taken for granted that because other towns have adopted electricity that there is nothing for it but to do the same in Benalla. To some, indeed, it is regarded as about the only step that can be taken to show our pro gressive spirit. But that may prove a very fallacious idea when thoroughly probed ...
"Esther." [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 27 November 1914
" Esther." On Wednesday night, in Holy Trinity Church, the sacred cantata, " Esther," was given by the choir under the able baton of Mr. G. Hamilton. The Rector, Rev. P. J. Edwards, undertook the con nective reading throughout the work. The. cantata is based on tho well-known book o! Esther, where Haman, overseer of the Realm, oppresses the Jews. Esther, who is a Jewess and the favorite wife of King Ahasuerus (Mr. Nichol) is besought by Morde cai (the Jew) to go unto the King and plead for her people. This duet between Mordecai (Mr. Hamilton) and Esther (Miss Edwards) was one of the best items of the evening, Miss Edwards putting fine expression into her part. Esther is successful in obtaining admission to the King, who holds out his sceptre when he sees her approach, and the duet, " What is it, Queen Esther " and " Long live our Beauteous Queen," are Eiing with marked effect by the King and Queen. Then the chorus, " Haste to the Banquet Hall" is sung, the staccato parts showing up ...

Wragge's Forecast. A GOOD TIME COMING. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 27 November 1914
Wragge's Forecast. A GOOD TIME COMING. Mr Wragge has computed fore casts for the seasons of Australia up till 1930, aud these, he says, are applicable to New Zealand, with slight modifications, owing to physical aud geographical reasons. During 1914 and parts of 1915, he says, the rainfall, taking Austral-, asia as a whole, will be under the average. This by no means im plies that there will be no rain. On the contrary good intervening rains will occur, and the last part of this period will be better than the first. From the middle of 1915 onwards the rainfall will markedly increase, and from 1915 to 1920 inclusive the seasons will be dis tinctly good, with abundant precipi tation. After 1020 the rainfall will begin to steadily fall off and the worst part of the next great •' under average" period will be 1923 and 192-1. Australians will be justified in calling that a drought. In 1925 matters will begin to improve and good seasons will prevail from 192G

The Non-Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 27 November 1914
The Non-Advertiser. Breathes there a Man with soul so dead Who never to liimself hath said: "My trade of late is getting bad, I'll try another two-inch ad." If such there be, go mark him well, ?or him no bank account shall swell, No angel watch the golden stair To welcome him a millionaire; The man who never asks for trade, By local lines or ad. displayed, Cares more for rest than worldly gain And patronage must give him pain. Tread lightly, riends let no rude sound Disturb liis solitude profound. Here let him live in calm repose, Dnsougnt by men except be owes, And when hedies, go plant him deep. That naughtmay break his dreamless Bleep, Where no rude clamor may dispel The quiet that he loved so well, And that the world may know its loss, Place on his grave a wreath of moss; Aad on a stone above, ' 'Here lies & chump who wouldn't advertise." !

t-, .. . ■—T V (ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.) UNDER THE BAN •OF THE CZAR,« —— o R, THE WINNING OF ISOLDE. f — . By St. George Rathborne, Author of "Omar Kassam," etc. PART 8. CHAPTER XXI.—(Continued.) A" large crowd had gathered near the barracks, and numerous soldiers were present. As Dugdale drew near he discover N ed a man mounted on a foam-speck ed horse that had evidently, run alongside ol Gratschefl. I This personage was a stranger to him, a large, well-made, bearded Russian, with an air of pride and a cold, grey eye. | It flashed upon Dugdale in an in-1 stant that this might be the baron mentioned in connection with the beautiful Isolde, and accordingly the individual became an object of con-, siderablo interest in his eyes. And apparently he was also an object of deep solicitude with the lordly stran ger, for those cold eyes flamed dan gerously as the guard brought the prisoner closer. Dugdale saw that every one, even the great General Gratschefl, seemed to be very humble in the pre...
Doings on Board a Transport. BY A BENALLA BOY. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 27 November 1914
Doings on Board a Trans port. BY A BEN ALL A. BOY. We left Port Melbourne at 2.30 p.ui. amidst terrific cheering from the crowd. The public were gathered at the pier at 2 p.m., and we got a splendid farewell. At 7 p.m. we dropped the pilot, and nt present we are out of the Heads. It was very calui passing through the " Rip." We have a splendid position on the boat right forward and away from the engine's screws. While witiug this there is not the slightest roll on the boat, and we are travelling very fast, and expect to catch up to the other transports eurly to-morrow. Slinging my hammock on the upper deck I en joyed my sleep immensely, never having the slightest sensation of sickness sn far. Inspected the sunrise from my hammock this morning, and it was beautiful. The sky was covered with fleecy[clouds, which were turned to gold, and the reflection-in the water was ■ something glorious. I rose at 6 a.m. &lt; and had a good bath, and after shavi'ig | felt as "fit&lt;...
CHAPTER XXII. "YOU COWARD." [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 27 November 1914
CHAPTER XXII. "YOU COWARD." s; The baron looked at Dugdale, and • Dugdale looked at the baron. ' One was a prisoner, with the pros pect of a dungeon and prison fare before him ; yet he was smiling as ' Contentedly as might a man well satisfied with what fortune had dealt —that last radiant glance which the had thrown him was food for hip Knlll. As-for the- nobleman, lie felt mean er than ever before in all his life, j and, of course, he blamed it all on | Dugdale, instead of realising that it J came from his persistent wooing of ' a girl who refased to listen to his ' suit. The baron moved closer and sur veyed him insolently from head to foot, but received juBt as bold a look in return. "Who are you, fellow ?" he deman ded. Dugdale laughed. '.'Now, that's sensible of you. For some day, sooner or later, we may be at each other's throats, let's take our measure, and introduce our selves. The colonel there has my pass port, and" He stopped short in confusion, a sudden recollcction of w...
CHAPTER XXIII FOUND EVERYWHERE. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 27 November 1914
CHAPTER XXIII FOUND EVERYWHERE!. For a man who faced unknown dangers, and who had just incurred the maledictions of a powerful Bus sian dignitary, our traveller friend certainly disclosed remarkably hisrh spirits. An exaltation seemed to possess mm as he walked away, attended by a prim guard hanging on to each el bow, while two others formed a bar rier in front and rear, just as though ho might be an exceedingly import ant personage. It was done for her and she knew the fact. Would he' could he, ever forget that last look she had bestowed upon him ? Whv for such as that, men in all ages' and under every sun had gone forth to battle, have won imperishable fame, have grappled with the pro blems of life, and solved them, or died in the effort, happj because it was to win a woman's love they Placed their all in the balance and counted it well lost. That was one reason why Dugdale was in such fine fettle, even under what appeared to be the most dis tressing conditions. Perhaps he conside...
CHAPTER XXIV. THE MAN WHO WROTE ON THE WALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 27 November 1914
CHAPTER XXIV. THE MAN WHO WROTE ON THE WALL. I Owen was deeply disappointed in I the major. He had expected better , things from warm Celtic blood. But perhaps so many years had passed I since this man had trod his native heath that he had become thorough ly Russianised. He was tempted to say what he felt, but discretion proved the better Part of valour. Besides, although the skinny major looked so stern and arbitrary, Dug dale fancied he saw a gleam of hu mour dallying in the corner of his eye, na though, under this military demeanour, there might lurk- a sense of humour, and a friendly feeling for the fellow-countryman who had dared mock General Gratscheff, defy a Royal dignitary, and run of! with the protege and ward of the Czar him self. Accordingly, Dugdale, with an airy grace, kissed his finger-tips to the head gaoler, and laughingly sent over his shoulder : "Ta-ta, major. Come and see me when-1 get settled. I'll be glnd to give you a dinner and a good bottle of something if w...
