OUR BOY SCOUTS VICTORIAN SECTION AFTER THE RALLY [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
.VICTORIAN SECTION By "HAVERSACK." AFTER THE RALLY First Australasian Rally has become a memory> and a pleasant one -withal. ' In every way the gathering was suc cessful, and scouts showed their effi ciency in a fine manner. As a result, the movement is likely to have more friends than ever. / It was inspiring to see hoys from New Zealand, Queensland, New South Wales, South Australia, and Tasmania mingled with Victorian comrades on the rally grounds. The visitors well deserved the cheers which greeted them as they marched on to parade before the flag was saluted. No doubt many friendships have been made be tween Victorians and scouts 'of other States and the Dominion. The boys will be able to keep in touch with each other by correspondence after the visi ters have returned to their distant homes. COUNTRY TROOPS Country troops mustered well, and the scouts showed that they had been well trained. It was good to see the skill and speed with which the Hurst- bridge troop built a serv...
CONSTABLE STABBED ATTACK BY COLORED MAN [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
CONSTABLE STABBED ATTACK BY COLORED MAN Constable Shuttleworth was stabbed in the neck by a colored man, near a Chinese gambling den, at Perth (W.A.) on January 21. Shuttleworth went in amongst a crowd of Asiatics to stop a man who was using vile language. He then moved up the street, and was just &nbsp; rounding a corner when the colored man sprang out and stabbed him viciously. The point of the knife just missed the jugular vein. A desperate struggle enused, the constable being helped by several citi- zens, but his assailant got clear away. Shuttleworth lost much blood, but at the hospital his wound was found not to be serious.

BEDROOM SCREEN. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914
BEDROOM SCREEN. A frame of light wood furnished in cream or white enamel looks well for a bedroom screen, and is especailly nice if the wood work is white or cream. ' Five feet is the usual height of a screen, and it may have either three or four panels, depending entirely upon individual taste. The cover may be some flowered cre tonne, or a stencil in gay colors on a cream material would be lovely. A very pretty effect, and one which is unusual could be obtained by using gray linen and toward: the top of each panel apply festoons or wreathes, or from cretonne. , A gTay-blue linen or unbleached mus lin offers a good background for stencil ing.

TREES AND THEIR USES. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914
TREES AND THEIR USES. Robert W. Noye, wfao lives at Thorough Lea, Ruffy, writes;—Dear Uncle Ben,—I will take for my subject "Trees and their uees." Trees are of great value to man. If trees did not exist then man would be at a great loss. He would not have wood for the purpose of making fires, furniture, parts of machines, and many other things. If we Just think what a countless number of things come into our minds. I will write what I think are some of the most important uses:— Cattle and we get shelter from wind, rain and sun; the leaves give off moisture, which falls on to the earth as rain; wood f.or fire and furniture; pulp, out of which paper mado (think what a loss that would be); the leaves decay, and so make humus, which is an important factor, and of great value la the soil. Differeut kinds of trees grow in different climates. The following are (some that arc about Ruffy:—The white gum, blue gum, yellow box, messmate, stringy bark, lightwood, wattle tree and many others.

GAMBETTA AND HIS DOG. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914
oambetta and his dog. Lily Forrester, who lives at Kunat, Writes :—>Donr Aunt Connie,—X will take for my subject Gnmbetta and his dog. Somo yenrs ago a gr«at Frenchman, named Gam, beita, was driving homo from Paris to hifl home in the country. The night was so dark that ho could hardly see his horse's head, £.0 he was drivir^ very 3lowly. All at once the horse reared. A man who had been bending down on the road felt tho horse's nose touch him, and started up. As soon as Gambetta saw what had happened he said, "You stupid fellow! You" wore nearly killed." "I wish I hacl bcon," was the reply. "Why so?" asked GRmbctta. "I am a poor workman. My master told mo to go' to the village to get some money which was clue to him.

"Do Something" [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914
"Do Something" sir George Jtteid. struck tfte intense note of practicality in a speech at Ballarat this week. His advice to young Australia was to "Go and do something," A large amount of good counsel is lost because it is published in book form and made too large to be portable. But a terse term sinks into the memory, stays there and reveals all its significance. It becomes a motive. The value of all advice, 01 course, is limited, for the majority of people learn and believe as little as possible, and for the most part wait till they get that little through experience. Some advice is as impractical as tel ling a sick man that he ought to be well; but Sir George Beid's words in dicate something' which is within the power of everyone—to cultivate the faculties one possesses. Like most humorists, he exaggerates the import ance of not learning Greek and Latin, and must not be interpreted too liter ally. Greek, Latin and the arts are good things, and among the concomi tants of civilisat...

[?]ord Denman's Resignation [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914
Iiord Denman's Resignation Conventional things are easy to say, and they usually reveal themselves in the telling1. There is, however, a deep note of regret voiced in all the refer ences to the departure of Lord Den man, and in his own expressions of re gard to Australia. His decision has been reluctantty arrived at, for he was deeply interested in the progress of the Commonwealth and anxious to identify himself with that progress. He is one of the men who show how Australia is regarded in Great Britain. There was a time when she was contemplated with a kind of genial and surprised patron age as a promising child. Lord Den man's speech and general attitude show that that time is now passed, and that the office of Governor-General is only approached and carried on with the gravity it deserves. It goes without saying that only the most serious con sidei'ations would have induced him to leave it, and those are furnished in the break-down of his health. Though Lord Denman's term has bee...
Foundation Day [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914
Foundation Day Foundation Day is an appropriate time for a general recognition of a valu able and growing Australian spirit without which no country can be great or achieve any considerable destiny. A national spirit in ordinary significance 1 succeeds history, but there can be his tory which Is not associated with the characteristics of the bad old days, which meant sufferings unimaginable In this young country, and which, as a fact, furnished the slowest and most impeded method of creating a national spirit at* all. A very small knowledge of history will show that if feeling among old peoples is possibly deeper and with a greater appearance of justification; it is often partial and narrow* and the scars of old wounds still l'emain to divide and embitter. It is needless to quote examples. They are too evident and well known. There is not a country in Europe that has not borne the avil effects of internal dissension and fac tion or religious hatreds. The Aus tralian ' Natives' Assoc...
