THE ENSIGN FRIDAY. NOV. 13, 1914. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 13 November 1914

THE ENSIGN FRIDAY.* NOV. 13, 191(L There was a good attendance, at the meeting held for the purpose of re establishing the Toora Progress Associ ation. Although the society has beea uTeiistence for many, years and had done a Vast amount of good in matters appertaining to the welfare of the town and district, it wus thought, that it should bo now so established, under rules, and regulations for the guidance of members, with an annual subscrip tion, (which would entitle everybody interested locally to join and take an active part in the work of the associa tion. At previous meetings it was contended that there was a lack of method applying to the business of carrying on the organisation, there being no rules or regulations, no mem bership fee, and apparently no proper- • ly appointed officers, so that, to some extent, the reconstruction of the insti tution was necessary, and its constitu tion under the reformation, is in keep ing with its title.

A gentleman who has been knownJ( for many years to the editor of tlie' "Daily Epress" (London), and who, is generally well informed, has sup plied that paper with some interest ing information on the subject. He writes as follows:— The new explosive invented two years ago by M. Turpin, the parent inventor of melinite and of lyddite —which, is merely so named from the. fact that the first experiments were made at Lydd, in Kent, in pre sence of the French inventor—is un doubtedly the most terrific and the most widely death-dealing high power explosive ever known.

A lot of starving cattle are now in and around these parts. Messrs T. Mummery and J. McKinnon have a good lot on their blocks, and Mr C- A. Watt has about 30 head of starving horses on his property. Shearing is in full swing. A good many sheep have been shorn in the district, but there are a lot more to be done. What is to be done with the wool, no one knows. The bush fire that raged in Gunyah Gunyah a few weeks ago, burnt down the Gunyah Hall and also a few houses and a quantity of grass was destroyed.

COALS OF FIRE. Lad by a Little Child, a Ticket-of Leave Man Played a Hero's Part. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 November 1914

COALS OF^FIRE. Lad by a Little Child, a Tloket-of Leave Man Played a Hero's Part. Murchison was hungry, and, being in an economical frame of mind, lie turned into a fish-shop and gave the curt order for twopennyworth of fried fish, which he dined on, standing at the counter. The atmosphere of the shop waB gassy, and the heat from the boiling oil made Murchison feel suddenly faint. He left a little piece of fish on his plate, and went out of the shop into a buffet opposite and had a brandy and soda. When he got outside, a church clock struck ten, and he shrugged his shoulders with a gesture of impatience. "Better go round and report or I'll forget It! Confound the police su pervision!" He walked on till he came to a po lice-station> and strolled in languidly. The inspector looked up from the paper he was reading and nodded. He went through the formula of ex amining the ticket, then, as ho handed it back, he said: "Well, Murchison, turning over a 'new leaf?" Murchison smiled. "When...

You may smash 'ein,you msy bash 'em, .Yon may dislocate their spines, Assault 'em with a hammer, And hang 'em up in lines; Yet there's always one reflection, Which could drive a man insane— That despite our greatest efforts They'll come next year again.

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 November 1914

KITCHEN WRINKLES. Fish may be scaled wucli easier by first dipping them into boiling water for a minute. An immediate cure for hiccup is to take a lump of sugar with a few drops of vinegar on it. A (ablespoonful of turpentine boiled witli your white clothcs will greatly niil the whitening process. The problem of rust stains has been solved by holding the damaged fabric in boiling rhubarb water. To remove mildew from linen, first rub the spots with a piece of soap, then put on a layer of scraped chalk, hang up to bleach, and repeat pro cess until the spots have disappeared. When a baking dish gets burnt in the using it should not be scraped. Simply place a little water and ashes in it, and the burnt surface will come off easily without injuring the dish. A good way to give stews a brown color, without adding coloring, is to save the outside of onions, and when washed add them to stew, and boil to gether. This will be found a much nicer way than by adding browning. Suede gloves can be...

The Premier's Policy Speech. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 November 1914

The Premier's Policy Speech. The Premier's speech at (Jreswick should rally the Liberal forces, which the excitement caused by the declaration of war disorganised. Unhappily there is little reason to predict an immediate end of the struggle, but as a community we are in a saner mood than we were, have learned that, though great battles are in progress and our civilisation is at stake, the day's work must be done that the "'billy may boil" and the children may be fed. To electors realising the new conditions brought about by war and drought, Sir Alexander Pea cock made rousing appeal. Never waB it so vitally important as now that the very most should be made of our national resources, and as Parliament must play a big part in the making or marring of Victoria, all that goes to the securing of satisfactory representation concerns us closely. Thus the Redistribution of Seats, so far from being an ab stract issue about which clever lads may talk in debating societies, is a practical iss...

MASTER OF ALL BY ALMAZ STOUT Author of "Copper Under the Gold," etc., etc. Published by Arrangement with Cassell's Colonial Press, Melbourne. AH Rights Reserved. CHAPTER III. Love on One Side. This happened two months before Dick had told tiie news to Robert— for Sydney two months of :i curious mixture of supreme joy at her new found happiness and regret for the old lost days when her father had needed her every hour. Dick had only found time to go down and see her once a week, not always that, but what of it? lie had his work and his engagements, and he could not always be running down. So Sydney argued. For in those first days she would not have dreamt f questioning what Dick chose to do. Because he did it, it was right. Besides, when he was witli her, Dick gave her little cause to (luestion. lie was gentle, courteous and considerate, and she had no ex perience by which to weigh the dif ference between gentle courtesy and passionate tenderness.
