Meadow Fete. SUCCESSFUL EFFORTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 4 December 1914
Meadow Fete. SUCCESSFUL, EFFORTS. The popular annual event in connection with Holy Trinity Church opened yesterday under most favourable circumstances. The weather just suited life in a large marquee lit up with coloured lanterns and (airy lamps. There was a large, good-humored, sociable crowd, the ladies predominating, of course. A number of stalls, daintily arranged, gave token of the careful preparation that had been made by the lady workers, and it was due to the assemblage that those efforts did not go a-begging. The Me chanics' Band played several spirited airs as a rally-up, and the President of the Shire (Cr W. Mathieson) performed the opening ceremony. He thanked them for the invitation to be present, and appre ciated the honour. It gave him great pleasure to congratulate them on the fine building recently erected, and he understood the proceeds of the Fete would be devoted towards the liquidation of the debt that had been incurred. (Hear, hear.) The ladies connected with t...

Kitchener and Carson. ULSTER LEADER STRIKES TROUBLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 4 December 1914
Kitchener and Carson. ULSTER LEADER STRIKES . TROUBLE. " Torch " : "An interesting item of news, which, strange to say, did not find a place amongst the war cables published in the great Aus tralian dallies, aud which explains why Ireland has been given a berth by Anti-Home Ruler Sir.E. Carson, since the outbreak of hostilities in Europe. Immediately following on his ap pointment to the Army Council, Kitchener, as Director of Martial Law, requested that certain promi nent public men, Carson amongst them, should be called before the Council with a view to inducing them to follow a certain line of action. Of those invited to attend before the council on a specified day Carson was the only one who had the temerity to ignore the invi tation, with the consequence that when he arrived at his office the following morning he found an armed guard at the door waiting to conduct him before Great Britain's War Lord. The businesslike atti tude of his compnlsory escort, induced Carson to promptly...
AUSTRALIANS GIFT OF BLANKETS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 4 December 1914
australians' gift of blankets. TO- THE EDITOR. Sir,—It has been suggested to me by several friends that effort in this direction has been limited by my putting the matter before the public through the medium of one newspaper only. Certainly through not having a typewriter at my dis posal and friends dropping in while writing my intention of ad dressing more than one paper at the time was abandoned, but I hope that it is not loo late yet to spread the appeal broadcast through Aus tralia. Every aspect of this bar barous war foretells a long and bitter struggle, and no doubt blankets will be welcomed by the home military authorities right through, and the ready manufac tured article must have a special value from now until the middle of | March, considering the unavoidable wastage through forced movements of troops and the benumbing rigour of the European winter. Austra lians, from their geographical posi- ' tion, can do a great thing now that no other country in the world can emulate,...
Correspondence. ELECTRICITY v. GAS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 4 December 1914
Correspondence. ELECTRICITY v. GAS. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—Your correspondent in Tuesday's paper- rather overdid the thing. Had he said gas was tqually cheap or even a little cheaper, he might bs.ve raised an arguroent.but when he says in the matter of light that electricity costs twice as much as gas, and in the iriatter of heat no Jess than five times that of gas, in both cases for an equivalent service, his anx iety is surely greater than his reason and his figures on a par with a statement which appeared in the Independent lately as reprinted from the Ararat " Adver tiser," viz!, that the cost of install ing two lights was to be j£27 7/6. - This inav have been a misprint. but ia quite as sensible as the statements made by " Ratepayer." If there were reason in that which be states, why is electricity used anywhere. In Melbourne gas is supplied at under 5/ per thousand, stiil electricity is more largely used. I arf not surprised that he should try, even though unsuccess -ully^to^hido...

Impressions of America. BY RETURNED TOURING JOURNALIST. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 4 December 1914
Impressions ot America. BY RETURNED TOURING JOURNALIST. Amongst recently returned tour ists is Mr. Clias. Walker/journalist, who was ia America at the out break of war, and who gives many interesting impressions of the mind and condition of American people. In conversation Mr. Walker re marked that one needed to be in America at such a time to realise" fully the mighty solidarity of the British Empire. In the land of the Stars and Stripes almost immedi ately after the outbreak of the war the financial difficulties were enor mous. There was nane of that calm confidence in the financial in stitutions that had been displayed in England, while the industrial i-ffect was immediate, hundreds and 'housands of men being thrown out of employment within two or three weeks of the outbreak of hostilities. There was a great deal of boasting about the war being America's opportunity, but it made a Britisher feel prcud to ficd that while Americans were "talking big" British travellers had invaded ...

Rational Costume. MYSTERIOUS CASE. When the Albury Police Court was opened on Monday morning there was observed seated on a chair before the dock what ap peared to be a youth of slender proportions. However, when the roll was called by Senior-Sergeant Blackburne, the " youth " answered to the name of Frances Mattheson, under which title she was charged with having no lawful " visible means of support. Senior-Sergeant Blackburne in formed the P.M. that he wished to apply for a remand.

Agricultural Colleges. In-his report for the month .of November the principal of the Dookie Agricultural College (Mr Pye) states that the college-bred wheat " Moira," a tallstrawed variety, has so far yielded best, viz., 9 bushels per acre. A few crossbreds will probably exceed this yield and may produce as much as 14 bushels. A large demand for seed wheat has set in, but until the harvest is over the amount of seed available for distribution will not be known. The varieties most sought are Federation, Currawa, Improved Steinwedel, Common wealth and Yaudilla King. The sample of wheat so far harvested is very fair, the colour good, and in the case of the Comeback variety the gr&lt;dn is plump. The husks caught from the harvester are steamed and fed to the stock. A number of pigs have been sold during the month, the highest price yielded being ^8 8s. Three consignments of 143 game cross chickens were sold in the open market and averaged 7s 3d per pair, .the maximum price being...
