FAMILY IN STATUES. WOMAN'S WEIRD WILL. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 29 May 1914

FAMILY IN STATUES. WOMAN'S WEIRD WILL. Miss Catherine MacCaig, whose bro ther, the late Mr. John Smart Mac Caig, an Oban (Scotland) banker, di rected in his will that 12 colossal sta tues of himself, his wife, and his fam ily should l>e erected on the top of the walls of a gigantic tower which he had built on Oban Hill, has left an eccentric will on a similar plan. Miss MacCaig, who died last year, was the last of the line, and by an early will left various bequests in the ordinary way, but in 1910 she added a codicil to take precedence of all else, by which the MacCaig Tower might gain further fame, and be ten anted within as well as without. The tower is to be railed in, and on the inside more statues are to be erect ed, to her father, mother, brothers, and sisters, and herself, to the number of 12, "including Peter, who died in '.n fancv." "\Vhere a likeness is not pro curable the statues are to bear r. close family resemblance to Mr. Mac Caig, the donor of the statues on the ...

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 29 May 1914

LADIES' LETTER. By "Irene," in Melbourne. It is really astonishing how quickly wo have the new season's fashions here, and, in a way, it must be confess es, it is rather a pity, for it means we are adopting modes designed for sum mer fabrics while we are still in win ter and wearing cloth and heavy weight materials. But r.s soon as in dications of the advance styles arrive, people will have them, so, in conse quence, they are shown by our leading establishments. For instance, already .3 flat Watteau and Dolly Yarden ...nd of hats, which have been intro duced in Paris for spring, are being shown here. They are very pictur esque and distinctly becoming, but not nearly so cosy and comfortable as the close-fitting ones we have been wear ing for a long time. However, per haps it is for the best, as the majority of women have been complaining bit terly of trouble with their hair and of its falling out excessively, and they blame it in a great measure to the close, tight-fitting hats which...

THE FINAL CALL. ACTORS WHO DIED ON THE I STAGE. | PROPHETIC UTTERANCES. j The death of Mr. Walter Dagleish ! on the stage of the King's Theatre, j Fremantle, recalls the fact that many J notable actors have made similar dra- j matic exits from this world. Som?'j years ago, says the "Sun," it was the | custom of the attendants at the Prin cess Theatre in Melbourne to poiu*. to a bloodstain on n carpet at the exact spot on which Signor Frederick died when he was playing in "Faust." The story of his tragic death used to be told in awesome whispers. Among actors of a superstitious tern j perament the bloodstain—as the stain ; had never been sent to the public | analyst for identification it is difficult to say whether it was human blood— was a hallowed spot, and man\ of them who were seen doing an undig nified side-step not in the business of the play were only trying to avoid desecrating the death-stain with the point of their stage shoes. Signor Frederici died, as several imperson ato...

If they ■would only keep a scrap-book fille.i with cuttings from the daily press they would never have to think oat good plots or dramatic situations.

"MAD GALLOP TO DISASTER." [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 29 May 1914

"MAD OALLOP TO DISASTER." "The wages of rural workers have gone up 100 per cent, in the last ten years. Their hours are often short er. for they don't begin as early. Their work is not as good. !We have to pay that much more for less and wors'_> work." This, in brief, is the opinion of Mr. \V. J. Cartwright, Temora, one of the best farmers in Australia. Yet the Labor press, and the union agita tors who depends on strikes for a liv ing, try to drive' down the throats of the community that the rural worker is a poor, underpaid, overworked, shockingly-sweated creature! Mr. Holman, as Premier, has promised wages boards for the country. Yet, on the word of Mr. Cartwright, there is no trouble with the farm hands. Under conditions as they are, if the wages boards are forced on the coun try it will be the farmer who will be sweated and the farm hand will ride | the high liorse. It will be a mad ga!- | lop to disaster, agriculturally. ney Stock and Station Journal."

THE PROPHET ENGINEER. "If Colonel Goethals had been a:i Englishman and had built the Panama Canal and governed the Zone for Eng land, he would have been made a peer of the realm. A title for him has indeed been suggested — Lord Culebra, says the "Outlook." "At tlie presentation to him of the Civic Forum medal, a poem, written for the occasion, was read by its au thor, Percy MacKaye. It is not only a fine example of occasional verse, but a stirring description of Colonel Goethals' task, and of the spirit in which he accomplished it, as the fol lowing stanzas show:— " 'A man went down to Panama Where many a man had died To slit the sliding mountains And lift the eternal tide; A man stood up in Panama, And the mountains stood aside. For a poet wrought in Panama, With a continent for his theme, And he wrote with flood and fire To forge a planet's dream, And the derricks rang his dithy- j rambs And his stanzas roared in steam.
