MAN-EATERS. It might bo thought that olio of the results of tlia progress of civi lisation would have been to protect mAti from tho ravages of the animal world, particularly with rsspcct to the preservation of numan life. Nothing of tho kind has happened. Such statistics as aro available point to tho fact that every year lions, tigers, snakes, and crocodiles con tinue to do their deadly work.

A new chum who, in Garibaldi shirt and leggings, fitted with gigan tic spurs, had provided something of a spectacle in a Queensland mining district, dashed into a camp and in formed a party of prospectors that he had been bitten by a snake. They made an incision in the bitten part, and cauterised the wound by igniting on it a charge of gunpowder extract ed from a cartridge. Then they hur ried the unfortunate fellow to the hospital. The doctor applied remedies, but not the slightest symptom of poison ing manifested itself. There appeared to be three punctures in the skin, but the doctor began to doubt whe ther the man had been bitten by a snake at all. The patient waa closely questioned, and then the fact was elicited that he had felt the bite when stooping down to take a drink at a creek. He had sat on one of his spurs !

THE WORLD'S WEALTHIEST MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 7 August 1914

THE WORLD'S WEALTHIEST MAN. The Czar of Russia is the wealthi est man in all the world, far richer even than John D. Rockefeller or any, of the Rothschilds. His civil list alone amounts to something like £(2,500,000 a year, and mora than a half of this is available for his own private use. In addition, the Czar owns land in European Russia equal in area to the whole ot Ireland, and derives I from it the colossal revenue of £5,000,000 per annum. And then he I also owns land in Siberia which, even in its present undeveloped state | brings him in well over £1,000,000 a year. His annual income, including the interest on his savings, has been es timated at £7,500,000. Seeing, therefore, that ttie Czar puts aside every year a large sum of money for each' of his four daughters the prince who contracts a marriage in that quarter is likely to do ex j tremely well for himself from a worldly point of view.

Federal Issues. LABOR'S OMISSIONS. Ooo of the mosb effective passages in tho vigorous speech which (ho Primo Mioister delivered oil Mnul ly evening, when ho opened his Victorian campaign, dealt with Labor's "omis sions. As Mr Cook showed, tho . extremists, who shape tho policy which Mr Fishar announcos, are so intent on making direct for their socialistic paradise, that thoy bestow hardly a thought on tho wise use of opportunities which lie ready to hand. They fancy they know a short cub to tho promised land, and are not disposed to spend either timo or energy in causing tho wilderness to blossom. So the Labor manifesto read by Mr Fisher at Buadaberg contained no reference to the Northern Territory, Mr Oook painted a ludicrous picture of the pranks Labor played in that vast area, which, so long as ib remains unpeopled, is a menace to tho safety of Australia. He remarked-" AH they have done thero as far as I know, ia to make it a benevolent asylum for their friends," Mr Fisher and hi...
