Sunday Corner. Victory by Waiting. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 12 December 1914
Sunday Corners S Victory by Waiting. :. Must life be a failure fo~f· ne compelled to stand.still in eniofdorced' iniaction and see the great thriob bing tides of life go by? No; victory is then to be gotten by standing still, by quiet waiting. It is a thousand times harder to do this than it was in the active days to rush on in thecolumns of stir ring life. It requires a grander heroism to stand and wait and not Slose heart and not lose hope, tosub mit to the will of God, to give up work and, honors to .others, to be quiet, confident and rejoicing, while the happy, busy multitude goes on and away. It is the grandest life 'having done all, to stand.'

THE ORCHARD. HUMUS OR VEGETABLE MATTER. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 12 December 1914
THE ORCHARD. 9 HUMUS OR VEGETABLE MATTER. Always aim at keeping up your humus supply (vegetable matter), as this is the first thing a plant\ looks for (like the solids-chaff -- to the. horse). It must be in the soil to enable the three essentials to plant life-phosphoric acid, p'btash and ni trogen-to thoroughly perform their functions. Where the humus is absent the three very necessary essentials named would be of absolutely no value during a hot, dry spell. Even in a favourable season, with iinoisture fortheoming, the relief would only be temporary, and a dry pinch will pull it up at once. Not so where the humus is incor porated in the soil, for apart from its functions as moisture conserver which alone is invaluable to plant life--it sets up certain bacterial ac tion which makes more available any plant food that is in the soil, in an insoluble form, and the soil is better able, where this vegetable mat ter is in abundance, to respond to an, application of commercial fer tilisers...

" r ~tSimon Fraser, who returned froi England ,by the Morea on Monday last, does not think that the; war will last long. Financial stress in Germany was growing serious, while the British navy was cutting Germany's shipping trade. We welcome our esteemed friend's views on the great conflict and trust his words will soon come true. The important question was raised at the annual meeting of the firebrigade on Monday last as to whether it was necessary that fire men should attead on duty at the hall on evenings when picture shows or concerts was held. Lieut Holden explained that having made inquires recently on the matter, such: attendance .wZs neCeeSary.

SMOKING FORTY MILES OF CIGARS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 12 December 1914
SMOKING FORTY MIIS OF . S . CIGARS. If "there's peace in a clear Ha-': vana," Herr Stark, a noted German : smoker who died recently, had his share of peace in this world, for dur ing sixty years of his life he con sumed more than half a million ci gars. Shortly before he smoked his last Havana he wrote: "During my long lifetime I esti mate that I have smoked more than 500,000 cigars, an average of more than twenty-two daily for sility years. I have thus enjoyed 10,000 . hours of such happiness as no wo man could have given me, and which was well worth the £6,000 that pur chased it. My cigars have been the one solace and sweetener of my life, and my only regret in leaving it is that I cannot bring my record up to a million." Herr Nanas, an Austrian, was even more devoted to "My Lady Nico tine." From the time he was 27 years old Herr Nanas kept an exact account of all he purchased and what he paid for !it. His account books show that in twenty-seven years - between twenty-seven and fi...
A LARGE FIRE. 'Ballarat House' Destroyed. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 12 December 1914
A LARGE FIRE. ' Ballarat House ' Destroyed. The ringing of the firebell at half-past 1 o'clock yesterday morn ing brought the local firefighters to their post promptly, to combat one of the largest fires which has hap pened in Queenscliff for a number years. When the bell rang almost the entire building of 'Ballarat House,' owned by Mrs Cottee, sen., and situated in Hesse street near the gates of the Railway Station, was in flames. The building was very large, constructed of wood, and built with double front facing Hesse street. It was one of the oldest and best known boarding houses in Queenscliff, and well furnished throughout. The southern end of the building had been con structed after the main building had been erected, and it was here the firemen devoted their energies from the first. The other part was burning fiercely, and a southerly wind, favored the chances of saving part off the building, though at &nbsp; first it seemed almost futile, as thick black smoke was em...

THIEVES IN BUSINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 19 December 1914
THIEVES IN BUSINESS. The Diamond-merchants of Hatton Garden are among the wealthiest traders.in London, and one would as soon expect to find pickpockets in the peerage as a gang of robbers :of the worst type trading as diamond-mer chants in a dignified suite of rooms in Hatton Garden. Nevertheless, ~ some time ago a gang of experienced criminals were in business in Hatton Garden as dia mond merchants on a considerable scale, and their reason for setting up in that particular line was that they had £70,000 worth of rough diamonds to dispose of, their entire collection having been stolen from a post-office safe in South Africa. It isn't often that criminals are so bold as the men of this gang must have been, for Hatton Garden is per haps one of the best-policed locali ties of all London, and considerable courage must have been necessary for them to have established them selves there, with no more lawful reason than that they had £70,000 worth of stolen diamonds which they wished to se...
