"MAD GALLOP TO DISASTER." [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 29 May 1914

"MAD GALLOP 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 worse work." This, in brief, is the opinion of Mr. W. 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 horse. It will be a mad gal I lop to disaster, agriculturally. —"Svd nev Stock and Station Journal."

Ballendella News. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 29 May 1914

B&iJendella News. (From Our Correspondent.) A fine sample of sugar cane grown by Set'ler Bunbury, can be seen at the Water Commission office. Mr Bunbury, who has had many years sugar growing ex perience in Queensland and eise where, is very confideut of sugar cane yet been growu here as a pro fitable fodder crop. It only re quires replanting about once in five or six years, and cows willuot blow on it, which should add largely to its utility. The intended dual christening at the Balleudella Church of England last Sunday resulted in only one turning up, viz., Mrs Clarke, there fore the honor of being the first remains with youug Master Rich ard Granville Clarke.

THE PROPHET ENGINEER. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 29 May 1914

THE PROPHET ENGINEER. "If Colonel Goethals had been an 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 the 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 etanzaB 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. Tor 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 rambs And his stanzas roared in steam. Where old Balboa bent his gaze He leads the liners through, And t...

Notes by Mr H. Jacob. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 29 May 1914

Notes by Mr H. Jacob. Mr Roy, district secretary for the Rochester irrigation settlements, has received a letter from Mr H7 Jacobs, of Mildura, accompanied by specimens of potatoes and lemons grown on his holding and now on exhibition at the establishment of Messrs Cheetbam and Jane. Both samples are first-class products, and their flavor equals their appearance. Mr Jacob says to show them to any one who does not believe that potatoes cannot be successfully raised- by irrigation'.. . There is a great demand for them, though he does not want to sell yet, but to oblige friends he had sold about a ton at a very payable figure. Lemons are going to. be dear this year, so his advice to Rochester dis trict settlers was correct when he recommended them to plant lemons. It >was only four months from the time he planted the potatoes till he had the cash for them in his pocket, and he can do ^this "twice a year. He did not irrigate the ground, which was not watered since 20ih December, 1913...

FASHIONS. HOW THEY ARE CREATED. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 29 May 1914

FASHIONS. HOW THEY ARB CREATED. Paris is the home and centre of fashions for women (writes P. W. in a London paper). The most famous dressmakers in the world are in Paris, and so great a reputation ha:i that city in this respect that among the society women whose wealth keeps the trade alive it Is almost a reproach to wear any frock that does not come from the French capital, or which, :£ made in England, was not copied from a Parisian design. Now, it will be seen at once that, to maintain such a reputation as this the Parisian dressmakers must con stantly create new designs. If they did not, London or some other city would soon do so and would rob them of their reputation for originality and creative genius. So for half the year at least, when the spring and autumn fashions aro in preparation, they work almost night and day, in order that, at those sea sons when ladies of fashion will want new frocks, they may have in readi ness a large number of fresh designs, or "new models," as ...

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES j A non-wowser cocky from Wyal catchem, or thereabouts, wandered in to the Continuous Picture Pavilion, and after blinking beerily at a cow boy picture fell asleep as soon as it was followed by a love story. Right on through the next picture he slept, until came the usual shore interval, followed again by a repeti tion of the cowboy film he had al ready seen. The corn-coaxer gazed in astonish ment at the familiar cowboys and Jn-~ diana careering across the sheet. "What day is it?" he asked in a whisper of a lady attendant.

GO-AHEAD VILLAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 29 May 1914

GO-AHEAD VILLAGE. As a result of the hobby of a young resident in Hurstmonceaux, this pretty Sussex village now enjoys all the advantages of an electric light in stallation. Mr. C. W. Von Roeraer, son of Baron Von Roemer, took up electrical engineering as a hobby a few years ago, fitting up his father's house with electric light. To-day, as the result of this early hobby, the vil lage at night resembles a patch of Piccadilly, and housewives turn on a switch to cook their husbands' din ners and heat their rooms. When I visited this "electric vil lage," says a writer, I found that nearly everybody, including the blacksmith, butcher and baker, were using electric power to help them in their work. Mr. Von Roemer explained how the "miracle" had been brought about. "After fitting up my father's house with electric light," he said, "I though it would be a good idea to ex tend the plant to the village. "At first the villagers objected. They had never known any other light except candles and...

Books and Bacon. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 29 May 1914

Books and Bacon. A miner, who was proud of his boy's attainments at school, one even ing picked up a home-lesson book and read from it a quotation which ran like this: "Some books should be tasted, some swallowed, and some chewed and digested.—Bacon." Turn ■ing to hi-s boy, he said:— "What's this, sonnie? Thou doesn't eat books at school, does tha? I know you are very clever, but you cannot do those nannygoat tricks, I'm sure. I'll warrant that'll be one of those printer's errors, sonnie." "Oh, no, father," said the boy. "Me taphorically speaking, we eat books. . "Now, you cannot diddle me like that," said the father. "I didn't go to school very long, 'but I ken that's one of those printer's errors. Why, son nie, can thou not see? He's put the word 'Bacon' in the wrong place. It should be, 'Some bacon should be tasted, some swallowed, and. some chewed and digested.'"

Good for the Quaker. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 29 May 1914

Good for the Quaker. In describing his own wedding, the author of "A Retrospect of Forty Years" records the remark of a guest, of which he says, "For genuine Qua ker wit this will he found hard to match. : The bridal couple received . a striking salutation from a Quaker client of the bridegroom's, a shrewd dry goods merchant. . Presented by an usher, he surveyed the bride, whom he had never seen before, and then, with the utmost deliberation, proceed ed to say:— ''William, I think thy bride" has shown more judgment in her choice than thou hast." Fortunately, before the newly-mar ried man could turn to resent this strange salutation, he continued as follows:— "Because it takes some penetration to discover thy good qualities, but hers can be seen at a glance." When a man wishes to depreciate another man he attacks his intelli gence; he calls him a fool or an idiot. But when a woman attacks a woman, . she always goes for her face.

GUARDING STATE SECRETS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 29 May 1914

GUARDING STATE SECRETS. Every Foreign Office in Europe acts on the theory that an army of spies is constantly on the alert to steal its secrets, and infinite precautions are taken to 'baffle their efforts. Very shortly after the first use of blotting-paper it was discovered that it was quite possible to cause blotting-pads to give up jealously guarded secrets by simply holding It in front of a mirror. Long after all the commercial world had forgotten the existence of such a thing, the British Foreign Office u&ed a sand shaker to dry its important written documents. Then specially manufactured irjk blotting-paper was used, ba: this was not found to be absolutely - py-proof. and a return to the sanJ-s-ia'or aus contemplated, when someone suggest ed the simple expedient of a small ab sorbent roller. These rollers l-£ ve since been used for drying dip'-'imtii documents. When such a roller has been run up and down a document once or twice, the cleverest spy in the world is at lib...
