Mr Lloyd George's Speech. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 9 January 1915
Mr Lloyd George's Speech. We publish a few sentences of Mr: Lloyd George's great speeeh re cently delivered in London on Britain's justification in entering the war. The speech has done a deal to fire the nation's enthusiam of resoluteness ,in vanquishing the iniquitous aggressor-and the subse quent ;,downfall of Germany as a military power. The extracts are from the Daily Chronicle: - 'Britain. is ,not responsible for this war, and thank God for that. .(Cheers.) Who is responsible? Not France. The Government of France was essentially a Pacifist Government. The French people abhorred the idea of war and the Government shared to the full their horror. Not France. Not Russia. (Cheers.)- ..Why, it is an essential part of tlhe German case that Russia would nrt: be ready: for war for three years. (Laughter.) That is their boast; that is why they at .tacked her .. Then' Russia .could, not. have provoked the war. 'Most men, every real mai .would defend- his owxn home, his' own 'life' and l...

A.O.F. Members of Court Queenscliff a?ei reminded of the appeal.which hasi been received from the 'North Holland District at Amsterdam, which asks for assistance' to meet.! the demands made upon the funds. The appeal is very worthy and de serves all the support that can pos-' sibly be givei. The terrible war raging . over Europe has brought such distress to members that it is beyond the power of' the district to :to alleviate all the demands.that are made upoti the funds.. In 'the city of Amsterdam 95 per cent. of the members'. are employed, in the Diamant branch, which has been at an absolute standstill for. months already, and the efforts made to as sist those members in every possible way have quite exhausted the benefit: 'funds.

SUGGESTIONS. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 9 January 1915
SUGGESTIONS. To the Editor. SIR,--Having much enjoyed a summer holiday at Queenscliff, I take the liberty of suggesting one or two things which- seem to be needed jin your compact little town. ." Bathing regulations to allow a larger freedom, with a strict pro hibition : of s?ich sighlit:' as have o?fended respectaible ~visitobr more than once, viz., bathers passijig in full daylight along'streets with very insufficient clothing. Some females have exposed their limbs almost to the knees. 2. A cool store for fish, so that the vagaries of wind and weather may not quite denude the market of that very valuable article of diet. 3. A guide book to your town, and its surroundings. St George's Church alone deserves such an aid to its full appreciation. The roads, vehicles, steamers, beside postal arrangements could find a place in such a book that would be of im mense aid to new comers and others. The lighthouses and shipping sig nals would become intelligible to every one. I should think. ...

(ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.) UNDER THE BAN 9OF THE CZAR, - - --- OR, ' THE WINNING OF ISOLDE. Ay St. George Rathborne, Author of "Omar Kassam," etc. SYNOPSIS OF PREVIOUS PARTS. Owen Dugdale, the wealthy owner of an estate in Leinster ; an artist, journalist, and idler, and an impul sive Irishman, has mapped out for himself a month's journey in South ern Russia. His passport, through a blunder on the part of the officials, calls for Owen Dugdale and wife, a luxury he has never possessed. Naturally this leads to strange and ridiculous complications as in Bohe mian fashion he wanders over the plains and mountains of Russia. Evening is setting in as his telega driven by Vladimir, a Don Cossack, who fears neither man nor devil, ap proaches the town of Rustchuk. Shortly after passing a mounted mili tary, officer and two Cossacks, our traveller discovers a wrecked telega in his path, On investigation Owen is startled by the discovery that the luckless vehicle is occupied by a lady and he becomes...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 9 January 1915
THE half-holiday question has greatly exercised the minds of busi ness people in Queenscliff this week. The Act as it stands renders it imperative that, shops close on Saturday. afternoon, but that day being 'most unsuitable and a great pecuniary loss, a petition has been forwarded to the Attorney-General requesting that in Queenscliff Wed nesday be observed in lieu of Saturday. This has not yet been dealt with, principally by reason off, the authorities' absence from office due :to holidays, and business peoptl here have hardly known. wht. ?to do.

TELEPHONE EXPERIMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 9 January 1915
TELEPHONE EXPERIMENT. In experimenting with telephones, surprising results were obtained by a Danish engineer named Petersen, by simply heating the transmitter. It was found that this increased the volume of sound very considerably. In fact, a transmitter thus heated so increased the volume of sound that the receiver, laid on a. table at the other end of the line, delivered the speech so plainly that all at* a far corner of a big room away from it hearid every word distinctly. Before the transmitter was heated this was impossible. A Paris telegraph engineer named Germain made practically the same discovery some time before, but it was not put to use. 'Now Professor, Hannover, of the Danish State Ex perimental establishment, has:. taken up the imatter, and finds that a sim ple apparatus may be made for heating the microphone transmitter of a -telephone, and thereby enable messages to be transmitted by tele phone a much greater distance than is possible under ordinary conditions.

THE DAIRY PASTEURISED CREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 9 January 1915
THE DAIRY PASTEURISED CREAM. Pasteurised cream for butter mak ing is more easily ripened than raw cream. The process of pasteurisation destroys the germs in the cream, and then the germs of the starter can develop freely, having no other kinds of bacteria to ,contend with. Pasteurised milk is not suitable for cheese, as the heat alters the na ture of the milk constituents which the rennet works on. A good curd cannot be obtained -from pasteurised milk. When milk gets burned on the in side of the lasteuriser. it forms a thin layer of a substance known as milk-stone. This milk-stone forms an insulation, thus making it difficult to heat the milk to the desired tem perature. The, best way to remove milk-stone from dairy utensils is to use a preparation known as chalk soap, which should be at all dairies where a pasteuriser is installed. Milk is usually sterilised in glass bottles, which are hermitically sealed immediately the sterilisation is com pleted. This milk will lmep for an in de...
ACROSS DEATH VALLEY. A Forbidding Desert. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 16 January 1915
ABG~iu iid- VALLEY.° A Forbidding Desert. r'It was as the sun was rising that we began our descent from Para mipt Range to take our way across Death Valley, in Southern California. Thd mountain surface is in rolls and drifts until it reaches the edge of the valley, where we arrive at the forbidding grey flat, level as a bil l-ard-table, save where here and there an encrustation of soda in some form permitted the foot of man o" beast to break through this slim crust. Our route lay directly across the sterile desert, and before us ran .?aggon tracks that were made by miners and adventurers who came to the sillcr-mines of Paramint. Old Tex, our guide, said that one could see on that desert waste the tracks of the wagons owned by the early Amigrants, of whom a number. per ishcd, for want of water in the years 18 iJ-50. When about seven miles out on the desert we came across the bones of three oxen, cracked, worn, and weather-beaten, aand three "spkes near them. A little further away lay...
HOW A MAN FIRST MEETS HIS WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 16 January 1915
FlOW A MIAN:FIRST MEETS "1IS In verynmany cases when he meets her for the first tune he little thinks she is to be his future wife. She is pleasant, that is all. He hardly knows whether she is exactly pretty. He talks to her and finds her interesting, but it is not tiil after he has bidden her good-bye and left her that he begins to have a dim con sciousness, that she, is a very nice girl. He meets her often afterwards. Somehow or other the thought of her occupies his ndd moments when he is not too busy. He finds a great deal which he would like to talk over with her. It seems that she could help him. By and by he finds that this pretty, artless, innocent girl has in some mysterious fashion obtained a strange power over him. In a thousand ways his life is directed by her. He is :ontinually asking himself what she would wish him to do. The fact is he has met with his future wife without recognising her. The truth at last breaks upon him. He is in love. Without her existence would not...
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 16 January 1915
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. • To Clean Papered Walls-The very *est ?,etuoo is to sweep off lightly all the dust that has been collected, then to rub the paper with stale bread; cut the crust of very thick, and wipe straight down from the top, then begin at the top again, and so on.
