SEWING BAGS OF WHEAT. 40 BAGS AN HOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 22 January 1914

BEWING BAGS OF WHEAT. 40 BAGS AN HOUR. Bag sewing is a seasonable topic, and there has been a good deal of discussion lately In Natimuk, says the "Mail," as to now many bags of wheat experienced men could sew per hour. Many practical men say that to sew from 100 to 120 bags as delivered from the harvester is a good day's-work. Mr. Frank Woller mann, formerly of that district, recent ly offered to put up £10 that he could dump with his knee and sew 33 bags in an hour. But a feat has been accomplished in South Austra lia which will set the West Wimmera knights of twine and needle. thinking -and talking. We blip the following from the Adelaide '-Chronicle":-A couple of years ago ;Mr James Darley, junr., son of Cr. J.T.Darley, of George town District C eoincil, creat:d a recorrd, filling and sewing 327 bags of wheat in one dasy.

STREET BATTLE CATTLE-DEALERS FIGHT CADETS [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 22 January 1914

- STREET BATTLE CATTLE)-DIALERS FIGHIT CADETS One killed and five dangerously and others slightly wounded is the casualty list of an extraordinary fight in Lue beck streets late last night between a party of Rhenish cattle-dealers and young cadets of the Luebeck Navigation School (reports the Berlin correspon dent of the "Daily News"' of November 15). The trouble began at the so-called Cavalier Ball in a restaurant. One of the cattle-dealers threatened to throw a glass of beer at one of tile Naviga tion students. The insult was preven ted by the landlord, but the students and some Luebeck rowdies who joined theni waylaid the cattle-dealers and their friends outside, and a regular fight began. Fists, decanters, sticks, beer-glasses, and finally long knives came into play. Suddenly one of the Navigation stu dents named Vokanr. screamed, and tell lifeless. The knife of one of his op ponents had pierced his heart. His scream and fall passed apparently un noticed, and the parties continu...

PORTER'S PLIGHT [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 22 January 1914

PORTER'S PLIiHT A special committee of four mem bers of the Battle (Sussex) Board of Guardians has been appointed to make a searching inquiry into the question of th' workhouse porter's trousers, al ter six months' constant service, were pronounced beyond repair. In April on the advice of a Local Go vernment Board inspector, the Battle guardians decided to put* William George Parker, the porter, into uniform in order to maintain the dignity of the ancient town. They invited tenders and voted £3, and in due course Parker appeared in all the glory of blue and brass, an ornament to the position he has held for ten years. But time and fate dealt unkindly with part of his uniform, and to. -save the dignity of Battle he asked for a new pair of trousers. A few days ago the guardians met to discuss the matter, but, like Parker's trousers, the meeting was divided, and the trouser amendment, moved by LJ.ady Mabelle Egerton, was defeated by one vote. Lady Mabelle Egerton, one of Park er's cham...

OVERWORKED NURSES LONG HOURS [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 22 January 1914

OVERWORKED NURSES LONG HOURS A large number of letters have been received by the "Express" in support of a plea for overworked and under paid hospital nurses. The following is typical of many: As a certificated nurse, with experi ence both of London and of provincial hospitals, let me thank you for taking up the hard case of the nurses gen erally. Few persons really realise what nurses' hours are. The night work is, as a rule, twelve hours seven nights a week, and Bank Holidays bring no respite, The aproaching Christmas holidays mean to nurses only extra work and extra expense in the way of helping to pay for the decoration of their wards. It is really a horrible time, so far as they are concerned. At one hospital I was in at Christmas time a fancy dress ball was arranged for the staff after the "festivities" for the pagents were over. But, alas! every one - doctors and nurses alike - was so "dead beat" that it was quietly allowed to fall through. I cannot understand why one Govern ...

A LORD'S MARKET GARDEN TEN-HOUR DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 22 January 1914

A LORD'S MARKIT ·(iARDEN TEN-HOUR DAY. Lord Hyde, the son and heir of the SEarl of Claredon, who emigrated to Canada with his wife and family eighteen months ago, partly owing to "Lloyd.Georgelsm," arrived here in the White Star liner Olympic to-day, on a brief visit to England (says the Ply mouth correspondent of the "Dally Ex press," November 22). In an interview I had with him be fore he disembarked, Lord Hyde sum marised his experiences of life in a new country, as well as his impressions of the "Golden Dominion," and his future aims. He has taken a farm of about 200 acres at Pickering, near Toronto, his ambition being to turn it into a market garden, and place it on a pay ing basis, selling his produce in Toronto. "I do not think I am ashamed to work," said the man who is related by birth or marriage to half the peerage, and who enjoyed the intimate friend ship of King Edward and Queen Alex andra. "I have learned since I went to Canada the meaning of the ten-hour day, and since...

THE HORSE POINTS FOR JUDGES EXPERT ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 22 January 1914

THE f ORSE POINTS FOR JUDGES EXPERT ADVICE. At the Kybybolite Branch of the South Australian Agriculture Bureau Mr W. J. Colebatch, B.Sc., Agric,. M.R.C.V.S. (Superintendent of .Agricul ture in the South-East), gave a prac tical demonstration on the points of a horse. Most farmers, he said, possess a fair knowledge of the general charac teristics to be looked for in a horse of good quality,but few would care to un dertake the responsibilities of show-ring judging, or to officiate in any capacity in which their knowledge of the points of a l.orse would be brought under the searchlight of public criticism. This may be due to natural reluctance to publicity or to a want of confidence, which may be attributed in some cases to a want of method or system in :he process of judging. No matter what the circumstances may be-r-whether the examination be made in the show ring or sale yard, the aim should be to adopt some definite and thorough system of working. Once adopted, the method should, ...
