Papuan Oil Fields. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 14 July 1914
Papuan Oil Fields. The discovery of petroloum in Papua is a matter of great importance, not only to the Commonwealth, but to the Empire generally, for the use of oil as fuel in connection with the generation of steam in war ships and merchant vessels is a matter which is engaging world wide attention. The reports which have been received from Papua up to the present indicate that the discovery of oil deposits in that country is no sham designed to attract capital, but a reality, and that there is reason to believe that a petroleum field of enormous possibilities awaits the application of scientific genius. The Ministor for External Affairs has received a sample of the product, an analysis of which shows that it con tains all the properties of high cluss mineral oil from which benzoline, kerosene and crude oil may bo extrac ted. If the information is sound on which the assumption of a valuable field is awaiting exploitation is based, it is considered that all the elements that establ...

SPORTING NOTES. COURSING. CLUNES CHAMPION MEETING COMMENCES TO-MORROW. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 14 July 1914
SPORTING NOTES. " PAKEHA.") COURSING. CLUNES CHAMPION MEETING COMMENCES TO-MORKOW. The champion meeting of the Clunes District Coursing Club com mences. to-morrow on the laud of Messra (J. Fraser and G. Leishman, and I may add Mr P. Mcliow has kindly allowed the hares to bo beaten out of Ins paddock. The recent rains i have put the going in good condition, anl everything points to ft successful meeting. For the first time for several years the stake failed to fill, owing to postponement of dates and clashing of fixtures, for I am sure the clashing of Donald with Clunes has lost Clunes a number of nominations. Then again, there are really too many clubs. ! Anyway, Clunes should be satisfied under the circumstances. We have a i fine collection of dogs, and the best of I open coursing will he seen on the best of country. The draw takes place at the Club hotel this evening at 7 o'clock punctually. The first pair of dogs will bo in the slips to-morrow morning at 9 o'clock, and I may add,...

Federal Campaign. LABOR'S PROPOSALS. (Contributed-) The distinctively Labor pro posals which Mr Fishersubmitted at Bundaberg may be roughly divided into two classes; those whioh are admirable, but im practicable; those which are practicable but injurious. What kindly mortal would not like to see every widowed mother sup plied with money sufficient for the wholesome upbringing of her children ? Where is there a globe trotter who would not gladly sail in Mr Fisher's ocean greyhounds which are to lr m, switt, so luxurious, so chiMp,? Which of us who travels here in Australia would not be glad to see his uniform gauge from Perth to Townsville? What father would not be pleased to point to an Australian navy and sav, "We built that, as we developed the Northern Territory, erected our political Capital, and created our army, out of current revenue ?" .Mr Fisher opened his Bunda berg speech on Monday with a sneev at the lavish expenditure of thei'-Cook Ministry! his surplus has disappeared,...

SLEEP AND SOME GREAT MEN. It was Cobden's boast that lie could sleep at will. Said ho: "If I had not had the faculty of sleeping liKo a dead fish in five minutes after the most ex citing mental effort, and with the cer tainty of having oblivion for six con secutive hours, I should not have been alivo now." Gladstone's sovereign rules ivere deliberato mastication of his food and "always eight hours' sleep." So important was this latter consideration that ho would never compose anything after six o'clock at night, as to do so would affect his sleep. Bright oom posed his speeches in bed; that tre mendous oration with "tho angel of death" and all complete was thought out under his nightcap. Doctor Bol linger, a suffer from insomnia, learnt by heart three books of the Odyssey when seventy years of ago, in order to be able to say them ovei to liimseJf m fchei silent watches of the night. Thiers was one of tho men to whom much tleop meant life. He foil fast asleep when discussing with Lord...
A FORGOTTEN PAST. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 17 July 1914
A FORGOTTEN PAST. By II. J. BICICLE. The Coronation Theatre was pack ed from stalls, to gallery with a vast audience whose absorbed attention seemed fixed almost breathlessly upon the stage. A big scene was in pro gress, a scene handled with fine dra matic skill, a situation that thrilled the house. It was the first night of a new play, the first appearance of a new actress, and both were creating a wonderful impression. And now, in this tense, dramatic moment, when the woman on tho stage, a tragic figure, with pale face and haunting eyes, stood battling with a crisis in her life, the picture that she made lived in the memory long after. At the end of the last act the cur tain was lifted again and again; ap plause, long sustained, echoed through the bullditg; an extraordinary scene of enthusiasm prevailed. She came in answer to that clamor-1 OUB call and bowed her thanlcs many times-Iris Wolde, the new dramatic j star, a new queen of the stage, who had conquered and entered into her...
THE MILLENNIUM. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 17 July 1914
THE MILLENNIUM. When the last hobble skirt is for gotten, And the last new fad has been tried; When the pannier fashion has faded, And the "hipless" craze has died, We shall rest, and faith, we shall need it Be at peace for a season or two, Till the next freak of folly arises To torture our souls anew. And those that survive shall be happy, They shall fling away pounds of hair; They shall sit all day without aching. At ease in a roeldng chair; They shall wear their own faces and figures, They shall walk as far as they please, And be able to cross a puddle" Without sprawling on hands and knees. And few of the men will praise them, And none will admire the sight; For no one will dress for fashion, And no one for man's delight; But each for her own sweet comfort, And each in her own sweet way, Shall wear the thing that she wishes, . But the gods will weep that day.
THE HAPPY MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 17 July 1914
THE HAPPY MAN. Two men sat in tho lobby of an hotel the other night, arguing vocifer ously, while a third man smoking a long and costly cigar, listened to the argument with a calm, comfortable, serene air. The argument was about happineBS. The men claimed, foV different rea sons, that it was impossible to be per fectly happy-or, as one of them put it: "No fallible human being is capable of so forgetting life's trials and tribu lations, or so withdrawing, so to say, from his defective mortal entity, as to become completely possessed,. even for a moment, with a sense of perfect happiness." The speaker turned to the man who was smoking the long, expensive cigar so comfortably. "Don't you agree to that, -sir?" he asked. The other flicked off his ash, with a chuckle. "Gentlemen," he^said, "I am perfect ly happy now." "What!" cried the first speaker. "You mean to say you are perfectly happy-enrapt in the present moment -oblivious of all the troubles of the universe? Perfectly happy-come n...

Next day Sheila Danvers was very ill-really ill for the first time in her life. Shamus O'Doyle returned in a whirl of excitement, ready to say and do everything for the girl he adored, but Sheila did not lenow him, and not only the neighboring doctor was fetched, but the best opinion in Cork was hastily summoned.. The girl was suffering from, high fever brought jc by shock and . exposure. How such a thing could- have happened no nno could tell, although Sheila in ail her wanderings kept talking' constantly about a Mrs. Murphy, who told her to. keep in the grounds, and then of a woman who wore a long black cloak and black bonnet; but these ram blings were supposed to be due to de lirium, and the poor Squire, Shamus and the rest of the household were be side themselves with grief.

A True Story. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 17 July 1914
A True Story. Writing from Bamawm, Vic.,, Mr. William John Youill, late of Harvey town, Eaglehawk, Vic., says: "In re gard to the statement I gave you some years ago as to my cure of kidney complaint, I may Bay that a. short time since I had occasion to be medi cally examined and was entirely free from any complaint." Mr. Youili's original statement waB as follows: "I feel it a duty I owe to you and to suf fering humanity to send you this let ter, iu the earnest hope that others who may be suffering as I was from that dread complaint, Bright's Di sease of- the kidneys, may take cour age and learn from my experience to adopt the same method of treatment that I did, feeling sure that by so do ing they will be saved much pain and misery, and, perhaps, an early grave. This may seem to some a remarkable statement to make, but it can be sub stantiated by anyone who will take the trouble to inquire for themselves from me or of my friends who were with me at the time.

YEJi ANOTHER CAT STORY. To tho several highly interesting oat Stories to which you.have already ac corded the widely extended publioity of your columns, I would like to add another (writes a correspondent to "T.P's., Weekly.") .. When living in tho Midlands, wa bad as a housohold pet, a fine tortoise Bholl oat which had been with us from kittenhood. Out of a numerous yield of kittens, not one had resembled its mother, and white they were sum marily disposed of, she who had given them birth was retained, and kept tho house and premises olour of vermin.. After several years, she appeared to bo suffering from toothache, evidence of which was forthcoming in a swollen face; always on the same side of tno faoe, and which interfered witli hor pleasant facial appearance, as I havo soen the case with human beings under similar oircumstances. When suffer ing from these attacks, by her pitiful look up into our laces she seemed to appeal for the help we could not af ford, but wo assured her of ...

PASTEUR AND ALCOHOLIC DRINKS. If it ware possible to writo the his tory of alooholio drinks there would be Noah, and there would be Pasteur; the one planted a vineyard, tho othr used a microscope; Noah happened b.y chance on the making of " national have.rages," Pasteur taught the na tions to be scientific over the making of them. He revolutionised thiB colossal industry; the genius of his work is active to-day in every brewery. His lectures to tho vinegar-makers or Or leana_ are a classic, and his ereat book on wines and beers is the "Nooum Or ganon" of brewing. So it always is with him; aill that ho touches turns to gold-to other men's gold.-Dr Stephen Paget, in tho "Comnill." The English sportswoman is a oat fern to all foreigners.-[W. B. Titter ion.
So Small. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 17 July 1914
So Small. General Sir Arthur Paget, who com mands the forces in Ireland, tells an amusing story of a visit paid by an in spector to a prison in the north of Ireland. There had been ajumor that the prisoners were underfed, and the inspector, determined to find out if there were any truth in it, decided to question . the prisoners himself. On entering one cell he noticed that the atmosphere seemed rather stuffy, and glancing around he noticed that the ventilator was shut. "Your cell seems rather close and stuffy," he remarked to the prisoner. "Why don't you have the ventilator open?" "I should like to, sir," replied the pri soner, "but I daren't risk it." "Risk it!" repeated the inspector. "What risk is there?" "Well, sir," the prisoner explained, "the last time I had it open a large bee-quite a large one, sir-flew in and carried off my dinner!" .
