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

EXODUS. They were toiling in the city, they were working in the field, When the drum began a-rolline, and the trumpet loudly peal'd, Si from North and South" they gathered, and from East and West thoy came, Like a band of careless sclioolboyB run ning to join a gime. And the fathers who had bred them let them have their wilful way; And the mothers who had fed them sighed, but would not say them nay; And the comrades left behind them felt their hparts with envy glow, And the women who had loved them shed their tears, yet badfl them go. And they all say—" Come back to us with your shields, or on them lain, It is Man's, the cause ye light for, and ye shall ijot fight in vain. Motherhood is Brotherhood—a strength to overcome all odds— A'id the fight went everore way when the Titans warr'd with Gods ! Ye shall smite Bellona's altar, ye shall break the Tyrant's car, _ Hung with ghastly trophies, waiting for the Triumph after war ; Ye have read of Goth and Vandal in the old, unhappy time, ...

WOMAN'S WORLD. The Good War May Bring to Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 November 1914

WOMAN'S WORLD. The Good War May Bring to Australia. With the war upon us, wo are pray ing lliat out oL' evil good may come, flood is promised to Australia by the increase ot industries and manufac tures, and the onus ot progressive work which will key us up mentally, phys'cally, and financially. This sounds well, and is likely to prove as well as it sounds. Hitherto we have looked too much abroad for our man ufactures, and the conversion ot our raw materials into commodities, pay ing the cost ol' the latter in freightage to Europe and back, and in all cases for foreign labor. Our country, rich wilh its products, allowed of this be ing done, but how much will be saved and added to the wealth of the na tion when t he works of manufacture range along with production. Let us account for a few of our own articles in -which the housekeeper is directly interested. Our wool has been ship ped out of the country to be returned in blankets, tweeds, cloths, woollen goods, carpets, rugs and furn...

New Oil Well in Japan May Reduce Cost of House-Lighting. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 November 1914

New Oil Well in Japan May Reduce Cost of House-Lighting. The price of oil—a subject oC great interest to country consumers, may bo affected by the discovery of a bed of extraordinary magnitude in Japan. Work >was started on this new well in April of this year, and after drilling to a depth of 1308 feet at midnight on May 25, the shell or crust of the deposit was pierced and the flow be gan. The oil continues in a steady stream, producing twice the volume of all the other wells in Japan, and is remarkable in the history of the oil 'industry the world over. It is to be hoped the cost of house-lighting in the country will be reduced by the results of the discovery.

The Dress of To-day. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 November 1914

The Dress of To-day. The inclination to devote all of our powers to the" subject of dress and its display, is- eclipsed by the wider is sues of life that have suddenly open ed out before us. The subject was be coming intolerable, there is 110 doubt, to those who liked to .give things their due proportion, and to whom a tunic split or unsplit, long or short, discuss ed as n national, movement, was in tellectually nauseating, if not ridicu lous. Clothes should be a pleasure; but when they are a tyranny the fash ion-makers need the curb of common-, sense. Never do women look better than in the coat and skirt, with changes of fronts, collars, lapels and colored ties. Summer or winter, the wearer of the coatvirnd skirt need never feel outdone .or out of place. She may Iook cosily clad while the wind blows cold, or as physically cool as the allitera tive cucumber in the heat of the sum mer. Wide is the range of coats and skirts. At present they are built in all materials—tweeds,' cloths, ...

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

Lasting Cure. A well-known professor at an Eng lish University was often annoyed by two Italians playing a street-organ be fore his house. Giving his servant some money, he told her that when ever she heard an organ she was to go out and pay the owners to take it away. This was a failure. The men, instead of coming once a week, came twice. One day the sound of the organ dis turbed the professor while working at a certain lecture. This so annoyed him that ho rushed out and ordered the men away, tel'.ing them that if they came again he would hand them over to the police. They refused to go unless lie gave them more money. En raged at their impertinence, he racod down the street in search of a police man. Just as he turned the corner of the street he met a sergeant marching nine constalbles to their beats. With out speaking, he turned and walked alongside the procession. When they turned the corner the Italians saw the professor with the policemen. It was enough. They were both seized ...

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

UNKNOWN MILLIONAIRES. When it was suddenly announced that for something loss than £3,000,000 Mr. Mallaby-Deeley had purchased the Duke of Bedford's Co vent Garden estate the question on everybody's lips was "Who is Malla •by-Deeley?" Practically noi\e of the general public knew his name and only his intimates in the financial and political worlds had any knowledge of his amazing financial resources. Although London can boast of few dealers in millions like Mr. Mallaby Deeley there arc quite a number of men in the metropolis who at almost a moment's notice can put down hun dreds of thousands of pounds to clinch a bargain. Readers will re member the case of Jlr. Birch Crisp, the almost unknown man, who was responsible for the £10,000,000 loan to China. Up to that time the public had never heard of him. Then all of a sudden he sprang into famn 011 ac count of the remarkable negotiations which brought him into conflict not only with the English Government, but with six other great Power...

EIGHTY THOUSAND GUINEAS FOR A HORSE. Some Amazing Offers. No little sensation has been aroused in the horse-racing world 'by the report that Mr. J. B. Joel, who is tlie only living owner who has won all five of the classic races with horses oC his own breeding, was re cently approached with an offer of 80,000 guineas for Sunstar, who won the Derby in 1011. -Mr. Joel, however, not only declined the offer, but inti mated that no money would buy the horse, which has now found a place in his luxurious breeding establishment al. Childwickbury. The magnitude of recent offers for other famous horses is, in the words of Senex. the sporting writer of the "Pull Mall Gazette," "suflicient to turn the head of even a millionaire." He relates that Mr. A. \V. Cox, who has now discarded his racing name of "Fairie," is reported to have re cently declined an offer of 55,000 guineas for Lembcrg, the Derby win ner of 1910; and it was au open se cret at the time that he had refused 50,000 guineas for Ba...

Anybody can ride one of these machines if he only thinks so." "I want to know," exclaimed th.e gawky young youth. "D'ye think I could stay on it if 1 got on?" "I know you could." "An' mak' 'er go?" "Of course." "You're trvin' to fool me." "Don't you want to try it?" And the tourist in knickerbockers winked slyly once more at the inter ested spectators. "How do you keep from fallin' off the thing?'' "All you've to do is to clinvb on, start it going, and keep going. Just try it. Here, get on." The gawky young man took hold of the bicycle awkwardly, and trundled it out to the middle of the road.

CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 November 1914

CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR. SIR,—I would like to direct the attention of your readers to the valuable article by " Sigma" in Saturday's " Age," entitled' " Domestic Science Centres." It puts the case for our High Schools very strongly, and demon strates the very great educational value it would prove for our girls. The Leongatha Agricultural High School Council have issued a provisional prospectus 'inviting application for 100 debentures, bearing seven and a half per cent, interest, and intend erecting a hosiel at once. After reading the "Age" article I feel sure that public-spirited citizens of this dis trict will see that the debentures are taken up at once, so that the hostel may be in readiness for the new year. —Yours etc., • * A. MESLEY.
