FEDERAL POLITICS. NO CONSTITUTIONAL MOVE. [Newspaper Article] — Warracknabeal Herald — 28 April 1914
FEDERAL POLITICS. NO CONSTITUTIONAL MOVE. No proposals arc likely to be plac od before the present Federal Parlia meat by the Liberal Party for tlio amendment of the Commonwealth Con stitution unless support from the La* bor'Party can be securedto pass them, insuperable difficulties having been found. Members of the (Ministerial Party are (writes the 'Melbourne "Herald") not unanimous on .the question of amending the Constitution in the direc tions-set out by Mr. W. H.* Irvine in recent public speeches, and strong comments have been made on what has been termed "the lone hand" that the Attorney-General has been appar ently playing in this matter. But as there is no prospect of Mr. Irvine's proposals being brought forward in Parliament unless the Liberal Party is returned after a general election with a larger majority than the pre sent one, the critics have been silen ced for the present. Full and free discussion ot any such proposal is con* tended for by Ministerialists before it s...

In fact, big bets were made on the event How ever, the Australian rider was in at the death, blissfully unconscious of the mild sensation she had caused. Miss rllcCulloch was so young when she received her first riding lesson that she remembers nothing what ever about it. In fact, she was not even old enough to hold on by her self, and had to be strapped on to...

The secretary reported that endea vors had been made to arrange for an inter-State conference on the bulk handling of wheat, but the other States did not consider the time op portune. The matter as far as Vic toria was concerncd, was now undei the consideration of a committee, which would shortly report. A pro test had been sent to the. Inter-State Commission against a duty on super phosphates, as it would raise the price and give a monopoly to local manufacturers.

IMMUNITY TO DISEASE. [Newspaper Article] — Warracknabeal Herald — 28 April 1914
.IMMUNITY TO DISEASE. A person attacked by a disease &lt;A microbial origin becomes immune to i that disease for a longer or shorter period, and often for life. Jn some cases the immunity is transmitted to offspring. An infant whose mother has been vaccinated shortly before Us birth is _ born immune and will not, for several months at least, react to vaccination. The Latin author Lucian describe*. *an African tribe which en joyed an inherited immunity to snake venom, and tested this immunity by allowing the newly-born infants to be bitten by snakes. Doctor Calmette'a experiments of immunising animals to snake bite by means of snake ven om show that if the bite thus inflicted did not prove fatal it would increase and make permanent the immunity already possessed by the child. Certain diseaes which were very fatal when they first appeared h; Europe have become comparatively mild. This result is doubtless due in part to a relative immunity acquired by the race in consequence of...
A Coachman Worth Having. [Newspaper Article] — Warracknabeal Herald — 28 April 1914
A Coachman Worth Having. Lord Mansfield told the following anecdote at out himself from the bench:— He had turned off his coachman for certain acts of peculation, not uncom mon in this class of person. The fol low begged his tordshlp to give him a What kind of character can I give you?" said his lordsliip. "Oh, my lord, any character youi lordship chooses to give me I shal most thankfully accept." His lordship accordingly sat dowt and wrote the following:— "The bearer, William , ha. served me three years in the caps-, city of coachman. He is an ablt ■ and competent driver, and a verj sober man. I discharged him be cause he cha&ted me. (Signed? Mansfield." John thanked hl« lordship, an walked off. A few mornings after wards, when his lordship was going, through his lobby to step into his coach for Westminster Hall, a man in a very handsome and exquisite livery, made him a low bow. To Ms surprise he recognised his old coachman. "Why, John," said his lordship, "you seem to have...
BOSTONIAN CULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Warracknabeal Herald — 28 April 1914
BOSTON IAN CULTURE. The following are two good stories on a somewhat old subject—the Bos. tonlan's reputation for superior cul ture:— Standing In the dock was a battered specimen of humanity, on whose face, In spite of signs of a dissipated life, could be seen faint traces of happier and purer days. "Where are yon from?" he was ask ed. . ... -• "From Bostot,..-' 'Tours is indeed a sad fall," contii ued the magistrate. "And yet you don't seem "to thoroughly realise how low you have sunk." - The prisoner started as though •struck by a sudden blow. "Your honor does me an Injustice!" he exclaimed. "The disgrace of Arrest for drunkenness, the mortification of being thrown Into a noisome dungeon, the publicity and humiliation of trial In a crowded and dingy court-room— all this I can endure; but to be sen tenced by a police magistrate who splits his infinitives, that Is Indeed more than I can bear!"

DEALING WITH STINKWORT. ITS MERITS AND DEMERITS. [Newspaper Article] — Warracknabeal Herald — 28 April 1914
DEALING WITH STINKWORT. ITS MERITS AND DEMERITS. In several districts in Victoria, aa in South Australia, the stinkwort is looked upon as a dangerous weed. It is among the plants proclaimed for the whole State under the Thistle Act. As yet it has not "got nearly such a hold in Victoria as in the sis ter 'State. It put in an appearance at Nhill some years ago, and is observed with varied feelings in that locality. Mr. George Batson does not consider it necessarily as the enemy of the wheat-grower, and he believes that it has some value for the sheepman Where grazing the stubbles and tho fallow is done at the right time, he says it can be easily kept down. As an example, in his vineyard the stinkwort is just now 2ft. high, while in an adjoining paddock, open to stock,; it is not two inches. "The point is," according to Mr. Batson, "you must feed the stinkwort off at the right time, or when the plants are young and tender. If you stock prettily heavily at this stage, the weed does not ...
