The Most Famous Song. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 4 June 1914

The Most Famous Song. There cannot ho the least doubt whatever that the most famous song in the world, judged by its being known in the most lands and by the most varied nations,, and by its being one of the , oldest and-most widely sung, ditties ever known, is that which has for its-first line, |;"AIalbroughV s'en vo-t-en guerre;" i which, if we were to give the Eng lish version of it, instead of. the older French words, woulci be, "Marlborough goes away to the war." But you say, "That the most 'fatu ous sohg iu the world? Why, \vc must be dreaming ! We never even heard it • What about our* grand old "Home; Sweet Home?" What about •'God-S;we the King?" What about "Auld Lang Syne?" And what about the "Marseillaise ?" Why we've known and sung these ail our lives, so to speak, and they are heard in every country; whereas that song , you've just mentioned— bless us, \vc don't even know the first line of it !

AUSTRALIA IN EASTERN TIN FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 4 June 1914

AUSTRALIA IN EASTERN TIN FIELDS. The recent move in Australian en- j terprise in Malayan tin fielda pro- , raises to be a big factor in keeping up and increasing the annual output of that motal from the Straits Set tlement. AuHtralian companies lmve secured concessions in many fields in Siam, Lower Burmah and the Fede rated Malay States. Although the last ten years have seen many fluctuations in the price of the metal, those who arc used to the vagaries of the tin oxide market know that it is subject to these snd- , don ups and downs which can gener- J ally bo attributed to passing or , local happenings, and in no wise I damp tho ardour, with which support ers regard the commercial soundness of this most useful of minerals. For instance, in April and May 1904 the price rose £35 per ton, while in the next two months it fell .C30. The year 1907 was a bad year, owing to the enormoun decrease in the American meat canning industry, fol lowing the publication of Upton Sin clair's book "Th...

HYGIENIC DISTRIBUTING METHODS. As more enlightened times dawn upon us, our mode ol living bccomes nt once more scientific and more hygienic, and old-time cuisine ar rangements fill us with horror. Bacteriology has done much to edu cate the masses, and hastaught the world to demand strict cleanliness in food storage and delivery ; thus to minimise as much as possible the dangers that lurk in germ contami nation. In most of our" capitals now, there is existent a company which has for its object a system of hygienic distribution of perishable goods , which is welcomed by all con sumers. Dairy produce, such as butter, eggs, cheese, bacon, rabbits, game, dressed poultry and-other like com modities are kept and prepared in a cool chamber. Instead of being hawk ed through the streets in an open vehicle, and delivered in the old-time primitive condition and method, each article is wrapped in a dust-proof bag before leaving the chamber and delivered unopened, and by means of a cool-storagc v...

These* cans vary from* the churns that travel by train tu the pint and half-pint ones left outside your door. It is not surprising, therefore, that many hmrdreds of cans are lost each day.
