Al Fresco Meeting. SENATOR FINDLEY AT TRARALGON. AMUSING INCIDENTS. MR. BENNETT GETS IT "HOT" [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 28 July 1914
Al Fresco Meeting. SENATOR FINDLEY AT TRARALGON. AMUSING INCIDENTS. MIR. BENNETT GETS IT "HOT" Senator Fmndley addressed a very large open-air meetdng in Franklin Street, Traralgon, on Saturday hight. At times the meeting was very rowdy, but the interjections ,for the most part. were of a humorous character. Mr. Findley is a Senate. candidate, touring Glppsland in the Labor interest, had the best.' ot the deal, and more than held his own. 'Mr. Findley was well re ceived. He said that he had tra ielled a good deal in Gippsland of late, and had never seen such an interest taken in politics. It car ried this mind back to the time when the Labor movement started, and the pessimists said: "You will gather no harvest." But to-day the movement was going ahead by leaps and bounds. The member for Gippsland had made some as tounding statements, and had evi dently forgotten the command ment: "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor." There was also another thing he had forgotten...

The undcrgrounding of the telephone wires in Traralgon was commenced last week end. The. trench for the cable box will be 12 inches wide, and two feet deep, and it will contain 208 pairs of wires-sufficient for the number of subscribers. It may be -some time before the.

TRAGIC DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 28 July 1914
TRAGIC DEATH. --0-- On Friday morning residents of Traralgon were deeply pained to learn that Mrs. Pye, wife of Mr. Andrew Pye, of Traralgon, had died under melancholy and tragic circumstances. An inquiry was conducted by Mr. T. A. Pettit, J.P., on Friday afternoon. Con- stable Phillips stated that he was summoned to the residence of Mr. Pye on Friday morning. He was informed that deceased rose about 6.30 to light the fire. About &nbsp; half an hour later she came to her husband and two boys, and said- "good-bye," and also that she had taken lysol. Mr. Pye sum- moned Dr. M'Lean as quickly as possible, but she was unconscious when the doctor arrived, and died a quarter of an hour later. A bot- tle containing lysol was subsequen- tly found. Dr. M'Lean said that the decea- sea had been ill for some time. She had been under an operation in the Gippsland Hospital, Sale, from internal complaint, 12 months ago. A fortnight ago she went to the hospital again for treatment, and retur...

AUSTRALIA'S DANGER. FEDERAL ISSUES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 31 July 1914
AUSTRALIA'S DANGER. -0----- FEDERAL ISSUES. . Mr. Andrew Fisher, who retur ned to Melbourne the other day after his trip to Queensland, and harangued a large and enthusias tic meeting of Laborites in the Auditorium, 'vas a very different man to the somewhat dejected lea der of the Opposition who left parliament at the end of the ses sion. The reception accorded him in his progress from Bundaberg to Victoria has inspired him with the conviction that he is marching to victory. Very wisely, the "Ar gus" has dwelt on Mr. Fisher's changed mood, for it is wehl that Liberals everywhere, especially where too much confidence exists, shoula know that in many cen tres the crowd has given an en&lt; thusiastic hearing to Labor's new manifesto. That Mr. Fisher's utterances have been greeted with plaudits Is not surprising. He pictured a life something like that we,, as child ren, we read in the "Arabian Nights." He tells his hearers that Labor Jias scattered boons, old age pensions, inval...

Mr. Cook' Fighting Speech. SUSTAINED INTERRUPTION. PRIMI4E MINISTER HfITS OUT S'ome of the things that Lablr Does not Like. Mr. Cook made a splendid fight ing speech in the Auditorfum, Mel bourne, on Monday night. As usual, 'the other side would not listen 'to truth, rbut tried to drown the speaker's voice. Here are a few extracts of what bbth sides ought to read:-'~: Mr. Cook: I linderstand that in this !hall a few' nighti ago Mr. W. ML. Hughes, one of the champions of ithe other iside, was permitted to hold a meeting in quietude, with out any interference whatever. Voices: "He was a man," and " seives you' right." (Interruption). Mr 'Cook: Mr Fisher was also al lowed Ito hold a meeting without interference of any kind. (Inter ruption). I have come over here to find out ihow you are holding out under your butchered constitution and 'under all Ithe evils .which Mr. Fisher and Mr. Hughes declared have come upon you. A 'voice: They ,re 'all right. Cheers. Mr.' Cook: So are we (Counter...

AT H. W. BOND'S Stirring Bargains. All Winter Goods to *** be Absolutely Cleared Out. We are NOT Closing up and Clearing Out. We are Going to Stay Right Here, & Give You As Unbeatable Value Always. HE. WDR. BONGD, GENERAL DRAPER, TRARALGON. WHAT DYSPEPTICS SHOULD KNOW. PHYSICIAN'S TIMELY AD VICE. The fact that few dypleptics really understiind the cause of their Strouble is probably tihe reason why drugs are still used to such an alarming extent. The practice is wrong, however, and is strongly condemned by many physicians. The presence of excess acid mn the stomach is the cause of prac .tically all forms of digestive trouble -and this can be neutralised, and rendered harmless by the occa sional use of " bisurated" magnesia -a product which can be obtained of any chemist. Physicians use bisurated magnesia themselves, as well as recommend it to their pa tients, because- they recognise that it not-only overcomes dangerous stomach atcids, and thus ensures easy digestifon, .but b...
HOW A PRIME MINISTER WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 31 July 1914
HOW A PRIME MINISTER S WORKS. The Right Hon. Joseph Cook, P.C., receives the pride of' place among the contributors 'to the August number of.". Life;" just to hand. Mr. Cook tells how a .Prime Minister conducts his daily round -with its multifarious 'duties, ana its scant pleasures. We Icarn that ever since he was the secretary of a coal miners' umnion he has been an early riser, and in fitting hirii self for his political career he used to make it a practice of getting up at half past fur every morning to study. This habit is still regularly, al though not so strenuously, obser ved, and in conducting the busi ness of the Prime Mimnister's office M'Ir. Cook undertakes a great deal more labor personally than is de manded by the pos:tion. For ex ample, 'Mr. Cook insists on opening and reading all 'letters .addressed to him, and a great portion of 'his work is taken up with dictating to to a shorthand clerk the answers to those letters which are mn any way personal. But, in addition to...

Off to the Old Land. -0- HOLIDAY AND BUSINESS TRIP. (By J.B.) (Continued). While in the Medeterranean Sea, and before entering Naples,. we passed 'through the celebrated straits of Messina, which divide the island of Sicily from the iiiainland of Italy. The strait is only two miles 'wide,and a beautiful view of the shore on both sides is pre sented. The mountains rise from the water's edge to a great height. The land ·ip the hjll sides is all under cultivation, chiefly oranges, lemons, dates, olives, cherries, etc. Railway 11ines run along both of the shores, crossing by means of iron bridges, at intervals. These railways hlso have to cross the water courses coming down the mountains, and fully one-fourth of the 'distance is through tunnels. Pretty towns can be seen nestling under the shadow of the frowning hills to the right and left of the steamer, and there are houses everywhere. On the Sicily side is. Mount Etna, at present in crup tion.' Separated from the main land ji the smal...
