BLIND WATCHMAKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 10 July 1914
BLIND WATCHMAKERS. Blind people--'hose who have been born blind-are, as is well known, ex ceedingly clever with their fingers, but it is not. often that we hear of a watchmaker who was born blind. And yet there are instances of the kind. A famous blind watchmaker lived at Holbeach, in Lincolnshire. His name was RIippin, and although completely blind, he could take to pieces and pu , together again watches that were ai most delicate construction, with the greatest ease, and in quicker time than most watchmakers who have the advantage of good eyesight. On one occasion some of the tiny wheels and screws used in his tirade were stolen from him, but the thief was cap ured with the property on him, and Rtippin identified them by his delicate sense of touch. A Barnstaple watch and clock maker brought up his blind son to his trade and the yoding man proved so skilful that on more than one occasion he de tected faults in time pieces which other tradesmen had failed Ito dis cover.

DARING KINEMA FEATS. THE MAN BEHIND THE CAMERA [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 10 July 1914
DARING iINEMIA FEATS. THE MAN BEHIND THE CAMERA The man behind the gun is not more brave than the man behind the camera Armed only with his photographic ap paraitus, the latter peneorates jungles, scales precipices, dodges bullets and bludgeouns mn iots and revolutions, never hesitating to risk his life when there is a chance of ob.aininmg a start ling and unique picture. One of the most astounding photographic feats on record was that of Mr. H. G. Ponting, who climbed a Japanese vol cano, Asama-Yama, to get a picture of its crater. While his helpers stood wai.ing with d second camera, Mr. Ponting advanced to the' edge of the volcano's mouth, and was in the very act of taking a picture when an erup tion occurred. But an assistant was as quick as a volcano, and snapped Mr. Ponting before the la?ter could even tuln round, and then the two ran for their livep. Huntmg big game with the camera is now quite an everyday business with intrepid and enterprising pho.ograph ers, and their cool...

FEDERAL ELECTIONS. -4--C-- MR. WISE AT ORBOST. Mr G. H. Wise addressed a large mo-etiog in the Orbost Mechanics' In stitute on Tuesday night, Mr D. Munro, J.P., occupying the chair. The address was very attentively listened to and dealt in a clear and effective manner with the leading qu:stions in Federal Politics. Mr Wise condemned the Government for failing to use the opportunity to pass useful non-party legislation, and said that its insincerity was shown by the abandonment of the Postal Voting Bill. The double dissolution, under the cir cumstances, struck a blow at the bi cameral system, but he did not criticise the action of the Governor-General, be lieving that he had acted on the advice of his Ministers. Mr Wise showed the evils of party, or what is termed "re sponsible," government in a very strong light, and contended that the adoption of the principle of elective ministries was necessary. He also supported the preferential vote and effective protection. As the address was ...

About noon however, the was an improvement and the afternoon was not unfavorable. There was not a great turn out foi' the procession, which consisted of the band, two or three very good fancy costumes and some of the rising gener ation who were fearfully and wonder fully got up. The attendance on the ground was very good and the re ceipts, including what was taken for afternoon tea totalled over £11. The match, as an exhibition of football, was not exactly high class but it fur nished some interest and amusement. The navvies proved too good for the benedicts and bore off' tne honors of the day.
