Federal Politics. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 April 1914
Federal Politics. On the -subject of organisation, Mr Rodgers, M.H.R. at Crossley last week, said that though the work of Liberals was yet by no means complete, great achievements had followed the work of the last three years. The superior organisation of the Labor Party had enabled it to sweep the polls in 1910, but at last election the Liberals reversed the position by organisation and propaganda work. In the first session of the present Parliament 23 measures were passed, but they were principally of an administra tive or a financial nature, and they laid no claim to the Liberal Party passing legislation to give effect to the policy put before the country. That would be im possible as they had arrived at a condi tion of absolute political deadlock in national politics with each party in charge of one of the Houses. The Liberals did not propose to remain in office, but intended using all legitimate means of appealing to the country to reconstitute both Houses of Parliament. Two te...

Melbourne Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 April 1914
Melbourne Notes. (From Our Correspondent) A leading member of Melbourne Society and sister of a recent bridegroom, paid a viait to the 'Palais de danse' at St. Kilda during last week, and with a gentleman friend commenced to dance the 'Tango.' Greatly to their surprise they were ordered off the floor by the officials, 'just like any common folk.' The lady became quite indignant, but nearly dropped with shock when she was conducted off the premises. There is no distinction of any kind at the ' Palais.' More buses have been added to the run to St. Kilda from the city, and good business is being done by the Red and Blue Companies (opposition). The trams are losing a great deal of money judging by the number of folk who, finding one bus full up prefer waiting for the next rather than go by tram.. The buses runi to St. Kilda in eleven (11) minutes, the tram takes twenty eight (28) minutes to do the same distance.

A TRUE STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 April 1914
A TRUE STORY. A number of years ago some miners in Wales, in exploring an old disused pit, found the body of a young man dressed in a fashion long out of date. The peculiar action of the air of the mine was such as preserved the body so perfectly. that it appeared asleep .rather than dead. The miners were puzzled at the icr cumstances. No one in the district had been missed within their remem brance, and at last it was resolved to bring in the oldest inhabitant-an old lady over eighty years old, who had lived single in the village all her life. When she was taken into the room where the dead man lay, a strange :hing occurred. The old lady fell on he-corpse, and kissea it, and address ed it by. every term of endearment spoken in a bygone generation.: He was- her only love, and she had waited for him her long life. She knew he had not forsaken her. - The old lady and young man had been betrothed sixty years before. Her lover had disappeared myseriously, ind she had kept her faith duri...

Plenty of Room. A travelling salesman died very suddenly in Pittsburg. His relatives telegraphed the undertaker to make a wreath: "The ribbon should be extra wide, with the inscription, 'Rest in Peace' on both sides, and if there is room,, 'We- shall meet in Heaven.' " The undertaker was out of town, and his new assistant executed the order. It was a startling foral piece which' turned up at the funeral. The nibbon was extra wide, and bore the inscription, "Rest in 'Peace on Both Sides, and if There is Room We Shall Meet in eHaven."
Reduction of Hotels. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 April 1914
Reduction of Hotels. The licenses of seven hotels in the Lancefield licensing district are not to be renewed after this year. The Licences Reduction board per sonally inspects all the hotels, and the local paper adds: Without drawing invidious distinctions it may safely be said that six hotels are 50 per cent too many for a town with three stores, a butcher and one baker. Certainly, all the hotels have " done all right " under the stupid shouting system, which being boiled down means " buying drinks you don't want for people you don't like." Without being Wowseristic, the charges which lies against most of the country hotels is that while they are ever ready to supply the cup that cheers and inebriates, they-,make no secret of the fact they can't be bothered with boarders or dinners. If a traveller wants to put himself and his horse up, he is told at some of the ''best" hotels to tie it (and himself) up to post, A coui.Ui hotel should be a place of accommo dation, a real caravansera...

Gravel and Bladder Troubles. From Mr. J. Armstrong, grocer, Car rington-road, Coogee, Sydney, N.S.W. "I had been suffering from gravel, and after trying various remedies prescribed by the doctor and getting no relief, my sister induced me to try Warner's Safe Cure. Before I-had. finished the first bottleful I was greatly relieved, and by the time I had used up the second bottleful. I was completely cured.

A Gentle Reminder. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 April 1914
A Gentle Reminder. A native of a small village in Scot land, having "made good" in "furrin parts," returned home, and, to show his more unfortunate brethren at home how little he valued £ s. d., he presented a brand new umbrella stand to the "auld kirk." In accordance with the usual custom the presenta tion wasannounced by the beadle on the Sahbath, just before the service started. The beadle, a grizzled old warrior of about seventy, delivered himself in the following manner: "Nae doot, brethren, ye'll a'' hae no ticed the bran new umbrella stan' that oor worthy nei'ber, Mr. MacRae,. has. gien tae the kirk. Noo umbrellas is umbrellas, and human naturs .human naturs, an' although it ill-behoves me tae say onything agin ony worshipper i' this sacred place, yet tae tell ye the truth we wad a' he verry pleased if Sandy MacQuibbar; wad tak' a sittin' a wee bittle farer awa fra the door!"
A LOST NIGHTSHIRT. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 April 1914
A LOST NIGHTSHIRT. Some years ago (says .a. reader) I was employed as "general" in Scot land. We were having exceedingly cold weather, so cola indeed, that every night I carried my bed from my bedroom to the kitchen floor, it being much warmer there. o I had just retired, about midnight, one night, feeling rather tired after a long day's work, when clang, clang, clang! went my master's and mis tress's bedroom bell. Now, I had just begun to feel warm, and as the hour was so late, I did. not intend to an swer it; but in a few seconds, clang, clang, clang! went that bell again. I hastily rose, and slipped on a skirt, threw a shawl round my shoulders, and opened the kitchen door. My mistress, who was standing up stairs on the landing, called down: "Annie, where did you put Mr. A's. nightshirt?" "Isn't it under the pillow?" i asked. Then Mr. A. roared: "No; and you'd ietter come and find it!" Upstairs I went and searched. every where, but all in vain, and wasn't Mr. A. cross, and didn't ...

A Dyspeptic's Life Saved. SEVERE PAIN AND SICKNESS FOR MANY YEARS CURED BY A SIMPLE ANTACID. -o NEIGHBOURS SAID HE WAS A DYING MAN. Chronic indigestion and sickness after food and severe pains were all quickly cured by a very simple remedy in the case of Mr R. Savi gan, 11 Gloucester Street, Barnard town, Newport, Mon. In a letter referring to her husband's illness, Mrs Savigan writes :-" He did not know what it was to eat a meal without it coming back," which appears to have been his condition for a considerable time, until his wife, while reading aladies' paper, saw ordinary bisurated mnagnesia recommended for indigestion, and obtained a small quantity so that her husband might try it. A few doses gave Mr Savigan great relief, and before he had finished the first supply the trouble was practically cured. To use Mrs Savigan's own words: "He can eat his food and is looking splendid, and can do his work; in fact, all the people about here look at him, for they all said m.he was a dyi...
Reassuring. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 April 1914
Reassuring.` It was rather rough weather at sea, and the captain was continually ;being asked if there were any danger by a certain nervous and fussy parson who was aboard. Getting tired of it, at last he led the parson to a speaking-tube connected with the stokehold. "Put your ear to that," said the captain. The parson, on doing so, heard a tremendous uproar going on below, accompanied by some terrible swear ing. "There," said the captain, "do you think those men would swear like that if they thought that their last mo ment had come?" "To be sure they would not," said the parson, and went away satisfied; but soon afterwards, getting nervous again, he rushed to the speaking-tube and listened. . "Ah," he said, much relieved, "thank Hleaven they're still at it."
