At Thursday's meeting of the Grenvilleshire Council, Cr Poynton said that, before framing the tsti mateB for the coming year, it would b.e well to take into consideration the provisions of the Workers' Com pensation Act as they would apply to council employees.

CYCLING. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 3 October 1914
CYCLING. It is more than probable that the present European upheaval will lead to the abandoning o£ the Olympic games, which were to be held in Berlin in 1916, and for which teams were being coached and prepared in all the leading countries of the world. It appears that all the.World's Cycling Championship events were not decided at Copenhagen (Den mark) early in August. The long distance events, only, wer6 held, and before the sprint championships had been run the classic meeting was abandoned, owing to the out break of the war.

THE FARM TEAM. A Few Practical Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 3 October 1914
THE FARM TEAM, j A Few Practical Notes. By Ploughboy. We are continually hearing that men to work the teams are hard to procure. No doubt that is so. Farm hands nowadays prefer casuai and rouseahout work to a settled job like that of driving a team. The plough man's job is one that requires very constant attention and work, where as the man who takes on fencing, gorse-work, or any odd job about a place can get a day off now and again without throwing things out of gear to any great extent. Then the plough man's hours are long. He has to he up early in the morning, while the fcncer or gorse-cutter may be in bed till the word for breakfast is sound ed.; At night he has to feed and cover after five or six o'clock, and then after tea he has to be on hand to turn his team out, or to get some one to do it for him. The rouseabout —provided he is not the cowboy-—may go straight in from his work, and is not bothered with anything till next morning comes. Still, I think a teamster's job is a ...

SCARSDALE. TENNIS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 10 October 1914
SC.4RSD.lIiE. TENNIS. Beautiful weather prevailed on Saturday last, when the recently re novated tennis court was,opened in the presence of a large local and dis trict assemblage. The court and . surroundings appeared particularly inviting, and great credit is due the members of the Stirling Tennis Club who carried out the renova ting work during their spare hours, it was at the end of last summer fhat members, recognising the court to be in a deploiable playing slate, decided to act, and that an asphalt court was the only cure. But the root of all evil, money, was the "stopper." After many calculations as to cost, and Echemes to raise the needful, were discussed, the matter "was mentianed to Mr M. Brcsnan, ■whose knowledge of earth works is well known, and who had assisted and managed the putting down of asphalt courts in other parts of the state., He laid put the work, and the young men of the club, with Tolnnteers. soon bad a)] ready for the gravel.

LONDON'S CLEVEREST COOK. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 10 October 1914
j LONDON'S CLEVEREST COOK. It Is more .-.atisfactory to have an accomplished woman cook than an accomplished chef in the kitchen, for the women are more resourceful, are less apt to make difficulties, and grumble less at their work. On the other hand, however, they are, as a rule, more extravagant than the men cooks, for they do not understand the economic side of kitchen finance. It sounds very revolutionary, and quite contrary to the accepted view of men and women cooks. Neverthe less, that is the opinion of Mrs. Kosa Lewis, the world's cleverest cook chef—the woman who has invented dishes for royalty, whose services are in great demand when famous host esses are entertaining royal guests, and who has contracted for many o£ the feasts for great "Government de partments. She has cooked dinners for the regiments of the Household. Cavalry, when they -entertained a sovereign,' and at one time controllec' the kitchen of White's Club, while in her charge Mr. Astor puts his kitch ens v h...
