A THRILLING NARRATIVE. DR. MAWSON'S EXPERIENCES. DEATH "A FOREGONE CONCLUSION." [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 7 April 1914
A THRILLING NARRATIVE. DR. MAlWSON'S EXPERIENCES. DEATH " A FOREGONE CON CLUSION." At the complimentary dinner tender ed to him at the Uriental Hotel, Mel bourne, last week, Dr. Mawson gave the most detailed account he has yet given of his experiences on the sledge journey with Lieutenant Ninnis and Dr. Mertz, from which he alone return ed alive. It was realised by those at the dinner that they were listening to a man who had probably been llealrerl to death than any Arctic or Anltarctic explorer who had managed to cogme through alive. After mlentioning that he and his two companions left the base in Adelie Land about the beginning of Novenl ber, 1912, lhe proceeded.--' e found ourselves on 12th December 300 miles from tihe hut.

MISS GRACE WAUGH'S RIDE TO SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 7 April 1914
MISS GRACE WAUGH'S RIDE TO SYDNEY. Our Melbourne correspondent writes --ne would not wish to detract in any way from Miss Grace tWaugh ' pluck, or sense, of what is becoming: but, still, it is difficult to know exact ly what is the reason for her perform ancce in riding fronm Melbourne to Syd tny. It was made a lmatter for public commenti by her announcing a public start from \Wirtll Park, which, by the way, is the home of circus busliess. As a feat of horsemanship and endurance the perfornmalnce is nio more than re spectahh'. Eleven and a half days for 550 nmiles on one horse is nothing out of the way anong denizens of the bush. though in these days it does not often happen that ally one needs to do such a journey onI horseback, except in tihe backhlocks. where there atre no news papers to chronicle what is being done. Admirers of Miss TWaugh's perform ance should read that beautiful story of bush experiences, Mrs. Aeneas Gunna 'a We of the Never Never," if they wish to know someth...

ACCIDENT TO WYRALLAH,. \'hle steaming around the coast on her way to the Gippsland Lakes one of the tail shafts of the coastal trader Wyrallah fractured, and necessitated the vessel returning to Melbourne on Sunday night. She left the South Wharf at 1.30 p.m. on Saturday, ant no defect was noticed in connection with the machinery until 12.45 a-m. on Sunday, when the tail shaft con necting the engines with one of the propellers broke suddenly. When the accident occurred the vessel was off Cape Patterson, about 40 miles to the westward of W\ilson's Promontory. Owing to the dangerous nature of the Lakes' Entrance, Captain J. T. Munro decided to return to Melbourne to ef fect repairs sooner than run any risk in negotiating:the entrance with the remaining propeller. Fortunately the sea was not rough, and no difficulty was experienced on the return to Mel bourne, although the vessel could only steam about 4'_. knots an hour. Three passengers who were on board were naturally chagrined at t...

PROMOTING ART. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 7 April 1914
PROMOTING ART. TWrites our Sydney correspondent: Mr. Carmichael, the Minister for Educa tion, recently invited a number of gen tlemen who are Interested in art and its encouragement to pronounce upon a plan which he has elaborated for the benefit of Australian art and artists. He thought that an association of lov ers of art could be formed, with a sub scription of, say, a guinea per member. Ten per cent. of the funds thus raised could be devoted to the establishment of a travelling scholarship, and the remainder should be devoted to the purchase of Australian works of art, which should be distributed amongst the members on the art-union, or- lot tery, principle. The application of the term 'art-union:: to mere money grabbing enterprises has seriously discounted the idea of turning the de vice to the salutary use for which it was first designed. Nevertheless, the proposal was warmly applauded. Those present included Sir Gerald Strickland, the State Governor, Judge U3ackhouse, and a ...

The Precise Man. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 10 April 1914
The Precise Man. "It looks like rain." "I beg your pardon." "I say it looks like rain." "What does?" "The weather." "The weather, my dear sir," is a' condition. Rain is water in the act... of falling from the clouds. It is im possible that they should look alike": "What I meant was that the sky` looked like rain." 'Equally impossible. The sky is the blue vault above us-the seeming arch or dome that we call the hea vens. It does not resemble falling water in the least." "Well, then, if you are so thunder ingly particular, it looks as if it would rain." "As if what would rain?" "The weather, of course." "The weather, as before stated, be ing a condition, cannot rain." "The clouds then, confound you! I may not know as much about it as you do, but I've goy enough sense to get in out of it, and you haven't," said the :nun. as he raised his um brella and walked avway in a huff.
