It is now known that there were 80 persons aboard the launch, and of these no less than 50 were drowned.

The smaller vessel sank within a minute of the impact, The majority of the passengers were sheltering in the saloon owing to the severe cold, and few of them had time to escape. Bluejackets 2from Italian and visiting German war ships saved many of the struggling people. Lieutenant Bossi was en deavoring to save a woman When several other drowning passengersa clung to him.

REUTER'S CABLES. IRISH CRISIS ACUTE. SOLDIERS ON THE MOVE. ULSTER VOLUNTEERS MOBILISING. CONFERENCE AT WAR OFF'ICE. LONDON, FlRIDAY. The news available to-day in re gard to Ulster cannot but accentuate public anxiety respecting the situa tion. Imperial troops are on the move to occupy strategic points in Ulster, and the possibility, at least, of civil war actually eventuating is being brought home even to those most reluctant to believe it. Sir Edward Carson had an en thusiastic reception on his arrival at Belfast from England to-day. He was welcomed by a fusillade of re volvers. Escorted by a bodyguard of 200 volunteers, he proceeded to Craigavon, where the Ulster leaders are conferring. Sir Edward has issued an appeal to his followers to maintain calm and peace, Unionists and Oraugemen of Lan cashire have sent Sir Edward Carson many telegrams of encourage ment. The Ulster leaders evidently fear a coup by the Government. All last night great activity was displayed at the Ulster hea...
WRITERS AND WRITINGS. LITERARY NOTES AND VERSES. IRISH POETRY. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 March 1914
eWfiTERS AND WRITINGS. --- LITERARY NOTES AND VERSES. IRISH POETRY. It was recently pointed out, apropos of R.LS., that initials might possess glamor no less than names-of which truism there could be no better instance than R.L.S. himself. The glamor is only inten sified when the initials enshrine a mystery as to their rightful owner. To some the well-known initials "A.E." appear still to possess the charm of mystery. Probably, how ever, most Celts would hold their Celthood cheap if they required thus late in the day to be informed that " A.E.'s" work-a-day name is G. W. Russell. Born in County Armagh, in 1867, for over thirty years he lived in Dublin, and while employed there in an important business house he studied art and exhibited frequently at various Dublin exhibitions. His poetic output comprises " The Earth's Breath and Other Poems" (1897), " Nuts of Knowledge" (1903), " The Divine Vision" (1904), and "By Still Waters" (1906). Recently his best lyric work has been published...

A HOME-MADE HAIR GROWER, THAT DOES MARVELS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 March 1914
A HOME-MADE HAIR GROWER THAT DOES MARVELS. During the last few years an nouncements have appeared occasion ally telling how to make a really good hair tonic that would actually make the hair grow, and it gives us great pleasure to learn that so many who'have tried it have obtained such remarkable results. One lady writes that immediately after reading the formula, she went to her chemist and had him put up as directed, 1 ounce of Lavona de Composee, - dram Menthol Crystals, and 3 ounces Bay Rum. She took this home, and although her hair has been falling out terribly and she was threatened with baldness, she was astonished and delighted to note that the falling out of the hair stopped immediately, and the hair itself began to grow in an amazing manner. In fact, she states that it has already grown nearly S inches in a little over two months. Moreover, her hair is now brighter, glossier and more luxuriant than ever and is still growing. She rubbed the tonic into the roots twice a day ...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 March 1914
Tax Federal Arbitration Court's machinery is rapidly becoming clogged and choked, and already there is a direct warning that it may shortly fail to fulfil its function. It has become evident that all the militant and impatient unions in the Commonwealth are turning their faces and bending their steps towards this workers' Mecca. On their way thither they enter into the most solemn "agreements," signed sealed and delivered, with employers, or they seek awards from wages boards; and immediately thereafter they deliberately scout the agreements and the awards, re fuse to be bound by them, and treat thenm as merely "another advance " towards their ideal of the full "fruits and profits of industry." Accepting for the nonce the increases thus given, their leaders begin to manufacture an industrial dispute extending beyond the boundaries of one State, they file their plaint, and proceed to struggle with other unions for priority of hearing by Mr. Justice Higgins. Nothing is bind ing, nothi...
HE WOULD BE FUNNY. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 March 1914
HE WOULD BE FUNNY. The conductor touched the passenger on the shoulder. "Ticket, please," he said. The passenger was one of those face tious persons ypu sometimes encounter in your travels. He winked at the man sitting next to him, held out his ticket to the con ductor, and at the moment the latt-er was about to take it he pushed out his forefinger instead. The conductor seized the finger, punched a bit out of it absent-minded ly, and nassed on. "Why did you murder me ?" was the question alleged to have been put by a "ghost" to a young chemist, John J. Grondin, who is accused of poison ing his wife, during the cross examination process known as the "third degree" applied to him by the police of Los Angeles. The accused's coansel says the police took (4rondin into a darkened room, where a "ghost" appeared and put this ques tion to him in sepulchral tones. While condemning such a method of forcing a confession as outrageous, Grondin's counsel said it ?:- ovided positive proof oý his c...

WHOLESALE PRODUCE MARKETS. S EL•BOURNE, Saturday. Wheat.-Actual grain on spot has been more or less neglected, buyers being dif ficdltto find, and sellers reserved. The quietness of the demand for flaur from Ureat Britain and other quarters is re ducing the demand from millers, but, on the other hand, holders would like to see the seed for next harvest sown and germinating before selling nmuch. wheat. Value, which has been maintained by the stability of holders, is now above the parity of London (there being practically no profit at present at any price above 3/9 aillngside, which is the equivalent of the price quoted by London for steamer par cels for early shipment). Paresis along aide are quoted at 3/9;% to 3/9i, while a -moderate business has been done in good to prime grain ex siding and town stores at:3/9. to 3/9k.
