MINING INTELLIGENCE. BORING OPERATIONS ON ARARAT FIELD. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 19 March 1914
MINING INTELLIGENCE. BORING OPERATIONo ON ARAIAT FIELD. In our last issue there was published an interesting article in connection with the efforts the Mines Department are:putting forward to prove the Ara rat field by having five drills in oper ation. Concerning this matter it might be mentioned that recently Mr Toutcher, M.L.A., introduced a depu tation to the Minister for Mines from two of the companies at present oper ating on the field, in regard to a re quest for certain boring. Mr Brown then promised to make inquiries from his chief officer, Mr Herman, who was then absent, and reply by letter. This he has done, and also at the same time informed Mr Toutcher that between the 15th November, 1912, and the pre 'sent date, the sum of £1890 had been paid in assisting companies in the Ara rat field to bore. For a number of years past now Mr Toutcher has strong ly advocated the need for a policy of national development in regard to a thorough boring of the rich Langi Lo gan alluvial ...

A WORKER'S FESTERED HAND. NO BETTER AFTER OPERATION. OBSTINATE SORE YIELDS TO ZAM-BUK. Mr M. Truecott, of 92 Wittenoon St., Boulder, W.A., suffered severely from a nasty ? stering sore which spread all over the back of his hand. Until lie came to use Zam-Buk the hand showed no sign of hdaling. "My husband," said .Mrs Trueeott, "one day knocked the back of his hand and got a small wound. Thinking the injury was. buit a'trifling one, he took no notice of it, with the result that, within a day or two it broke out into a nasty running sore. This gradu ally began to spread all over the back of the hand and it became extremely inflamed and painful. "In spite of the many'different pre parations which we used the inflamma tion appeared to get worse every day, an.' the sore never showed any sign of healing. A doctor was consulted, but as the ointment prescribed was used without effect, he decided to operate on the hand, and scraped it. But this also proved ineffective. The nasty sore was as ...

NEW LANGI AND LANGI NORTH COMPANIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 19 March 1914
NEW LANGI AND, LANGI. NORTH COMPANIES. Mr Hoist, of Ballarat, in his monthly guide, writes as follows in reference to the New Langi Logan and Langi Logan North mines : New Langi Logan.-Now that the drives are opening up. wash, the two rluestions asked are, what is the value of the dirt, and when will it be suffi ciently drained for panelling ? Until the puddler answers the first, the man ager's estimate, 2 to 3 ozs per fathom. must be accepted, and the opinion of those who know Mr Toole best is that he is not over-estimating values.' The second query is being answered by the rapid manner in which the -pressure has eased off the bores during the last few weeks, and when No. 2 rise (situ ated 350 feet west of No. 1) is into wash in two or three weeks' time, a drive will be put out east to connect with a west drive from No. 1 rise. This will be a good drainage channel, as it is going across the gutter. In a very short time a start will be made to put up No. 3 rise just off the south ma...
THAT ELECTION DATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 19 March 1914
TIAT ELECTION DATE..' It is amusing to notice.the airy man. ner in which certain people settle de finitely the date of the next Federa' election. One Liberal member dowr in the Western District fixed' it tlh ot,,er evening for August or Septem bhr. while on the same night the Prim, fMinister, by inference, put the waitinp interval at 10 months, which woul. bring us on to January. A moment'e consideration will show .anyone then nothing definite can be said on the mat ter. Last session's experieiice shows how. even with the use of the gag which it must be remembered will no: he so easily applicable this session, thr ReprrFentatives can waste weeks ane months over a measure.'-. When the bill. refusal to which will give thl chncre of a double dissolution, reach the Senate, the possibilitier of tinir wMsting are infinite. The Governor General cannot act so long as the mea sures are before the House, and if th". nlline partyjn the Senate so decides. the Senate session can be strung oun un...

TERRIBLE WASTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 19 March 1914
TERRIBLE WASTE. Fourteen hundred gallons of beer was poured down the Queenstown. Tas mania, gutters last week. The con signnment had deteriorated beyond thr appreciative tastes of the connoisseure but mniny shook their heads at tih saddening waste, while temperance a. vrontrs showed keenly gleeful satisfacs tion. The brewery agent and excise representative snuppered the liquor.o which strongly scented the hot air of the warm day, and sadness spread over the landscape. Under the cireum stances one is not surprised to learn that the traditional air of gloom has settled down on Queenstown: solidly and heavily like a pall.

OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. A BAD AMBITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 19 March 1914
OTU MELBOURNE LETTER, A BAD AMBITION. The United States. boast has always been that it owned the biggest things .o earth, and the ambition of the citi. zens of that great country has been to figure in superlatives in every depart ment of life. In many ways this love of the limelight has become a charac teristic of New South Wales. It would, perhaps, be unkind to suggest that :he residents of the Mother State suffer from swelled heads, but it must he admitted that all the symptoms of that distressing complaint have been noticeable for a long time. Possession of the Federal capital, ownership of the beautiful harbor, moat strikes, coal strikes, wharf laborers' strikes, small. pnx outbreaks and numerous other little things of that kind, have all combined to give New South -Wales a claim to notoriety, if not distinction, that its people have thoroughly enjoyed. Even in such a small matter as the Speaker ship, New South Wales has put up a record with Mr Henry Willis that it seems determi...

CHINESE PIRATES. NORWEGIAN VESSEL LOOTED. DISGUISED AS PASSENGERS. HONG KONG, Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 19 March 1914
CHINESE PIRATES. NORWEGIAN VESSEL LOOTED. DISGUISED AS PASSENGERS. HONG KONG, Tuesday. A story of a remarkable raid by pi rates has been related by the crew of the Norwegian steel screw steamer Childar (1735 tons). The ship had 250 Chinese aboard, and when off Mendoza Island 60 men, who were supposed to be peaceful passen gers, suddenly appeared armed with re volvers. They overpowered the Eu ropean crew, anU after having chased the passengers below, battened them down. Attention was then turned to the officers, who were overpowered and bound hand and foot. The second mate, who resisted, was seriously wounded. Upon assuming command of the ves sel, the pirates brought it to Bias Bay, where it was ransacked. The pirates went off with tnree junks containing loot, and including 5000 dollars. The Childar was then brought back to Hong Kong by the officers.

CYCLING NOTES. Captain Kelsey and his companions, who last-August left Capetown with the intention of trying to motor through to Cairo, are reported to be financially stranded in Central Africa. The pre. vious advice to hand stated that the party had succeeded in reaching Liv. ingstone. On the way up the driver of the "Argyll" ear had to be invalid. ed home on account of contracting black' water fever, and another driver picked up at Wankie. An appeal is being made in South Africa by the Transvaal Automobile Club for funds to assist tho: sxpedition. Despite the difficulties that have faced Captain Kelsey, another party, driving a Dun. lop shod 16 h.p. Frabrique Automobile Belgique Car, and supported by the Bele gan Government, intends endeavoring to make a trip across Africa from Cape Town to Cairo..
