Stopped at Length. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 February 1914

I Stopped at Length. I A candidate for municipal honors was addressing a meeting of citizens. For an hour his audience listened at tentively; at the end of that time they were thinking that they had been tyell entertained and that the evening was far gone; at the end of an hour and a-half they thought they knew enough about municipal reform to last them the remainder of their lives; at the end of two hours they had sunk into a state of listless de spair. "Important as is this subject to us, it is more so to others, gentlemen," the speaker asserted, apparently get ting ready for another long lap. "I am in reality speaking for the benefit of posterity." "Well, just hold out a little longer, old man," someone in the hall ex claimed, "and posterity will be here to profit by your remarks!" He had been to Sunday-school, and wanted his mother to tell him about angels—what were they? "An angel, my dear, is a little girl with wings that flies away up in the skies." "Yes, ma; but I heard pa t...

ARMS BY STEALTH CUSTOMS EVADED. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 February 1914

ARMS BY STEALTH CUSTOMS EVADED. The arming of Ulster has been going on quietly for the last Ave years. At first the rifles purchased were part of a large number originally made - for the Italian Army, but never, actually put into service owing to the decision to adopt an improved type. These •Italian rifles (writes Mr R. Montague Smith in "The Daily Mail" of Decem ber 6), of which about 25,000 were purchased for Ulster, are not so pre cise as the modern service weapon, being long in the barrel, with an un usually large bore and a high trajec tory. Nevertheless- they are very deadly weapons, shooting accurately at a distance of 1500 yards. Bach rifle has a clip holding five cartridges. These rifles were bought in Ham burg, and shipped from there to Dun dee, Leith, Newcastle, and West Hartlepool. At one or other of those ports they were transhipped to a boat bound for Belfast, often consigned as hardware, electrical equipment, or even pianos. These operations were carried out with gre...

MANNERS IN THE HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 February 1914

MANNERS IN THE HOME. ' Hottie life is the sphere where true character is.revealed. In the home, where we first learn what love is, and where' our loving relations are more precious than, any others in life, we are ihost likely to give way to the unrestrained, unloving impulses of im patience, anger, criticism, denuncia tion, contempt—all the unworthiest and most destructive forces of our nature. We do not do this whenr "company" is present; we wear our ''company manners" then. But when the guests—for whom we may care little—are gone and we are alone with members of the home circle —for whom we care most—then it is that the "company manners" of cour tesy and gentleness often disappear, and selfishness that we should be ashamed to let outsiders see has full sway.

MEXICAN ELECTIONS VOID Affairs in Mexico are still in a state of chaos, ancl matters have not been improved by Congress annulling the re cent Presidential elections and fixing new ones for July next (says "Lloyd's /Weekly," of December 14). A telegram from Presidio, Texas, says:—Fortifications have been hur riedly thrown up round Orinaga in the expectation that 3500 rebels, under Generals Herrera and Urbina, will at tack that place in a few days. A telegram to "The New York Times," dated from Marfa on Wednesday, gives a graphic account of the arrival of the Federal refugees, from Chihuahua. It says:— "A gaunt figure General Orozco, half fell from his horse yesterday evening, and collapsed to the ground at the Fed eral headquarters at Orinaga.

GENERAL NEWS. A TALE OF A DOG. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 February 1914

GENERAL HEWS. A TALE OF A DOO. A touching story of canine fidelity I fs told by the author of "Wild Lif« I en the Rockies." Master and dog had been out on a four days' excur sion on the bleak mountain tops, j when Mr. Mills stopped to take some photographs. .To do this he had tc take off his sheepskin mittens, which he placed in his coat pocket, but not securely, as it proved. "From time to time," he writes, "as I climbed the summit of the con tinental divide, I stopped to take photographs, but on the summit tha cold pierced my silk gloves, and I felt for my mittens, to find that one of them was lost. I stooped, put an arm round Scotch, my dog, told him I had lost a mitten and that I wanted him to go down for it to save me the trouble. "Instead of starting off willingly, as he had invariably done before in obe dience to my commands, he stood stiir. I thought he had misunderstood me, so I patted him, and then, point ing down the slope, said— " 'Go for the mitten, Scotch. I will wait ...

ELOPEMENT MYSTERY There has been a remarkable sequel I to a romantic runaway wedding at , Paxton, just over the Scottish border ,"in Berwicksrire (says the "Daily Ex press" on November 14). Two months ago the bride disap peared from her home in England, and this week her father visited Berwick and interviewed the driver who drove the runaway couple over the border, where they declared themselves man and wife before witnesses by the road side. The bride then went home to her parents and told them she had been married in Scotland, but did not disclose the name of her husband. She stayed a fortnight with her par ents, and then left, and they have not | heard of her since. The father described to the driver a man whom he thought might be the bridegroom, but the description did not ! col-respond to the actual bridegroom. Inquiries were also made at Berwick railway station if there were any ini tials on the young couple's luggage, but no light could be thrown on the matter there, and the ...

IN A LONDON WORKHOUSE CRUELTY AND NEGLECT [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 February 1914

IN A LONDON WORKHOUSE CRUELTY AND NEGLECT I do not want anyone to think that my present abode is a place of uni form harshness and cruelty. On the other hand—setting aside the casual ward, which is one of the worst in the metropolitan area—my present abode has a particularly good name for leniency and fair treatment. My contention from the general is this, that cases of cruelty and neglect do happen, and always will happen in institutions of this kind while in mates have no audible voice and no impartial judgment on their griev ances. . . . I shall take for the special purposes of my article a circumstance which happened some time ago. Of parallel circumstances I have a good and vari ous collection, but this one is chosen on account of its incontestable accu racy of detail, and because it covers ground which otherwise I should have to ti'ace separately. The facts are these: A man whom I will call H. was admitted tu the in firmary attached 10 this workhouse suffering from a chronic s...

He thought this would be far more satisfactory than calling a joint meeting. Cr Pettit said the proposal of the President might seem a roundabout method of dealing with the matter. He had a motion convening a meet ing of the shires interested, includ ing the Warragul JShire Council, the Warragul Progress Association, and the Trafalgar Progress Associa tion, which bodies had expressed a desire to join in the movement. He had also seen Mr P. T. Heywood, who said he was glad to see the Council had. taken up the project, and that he would assist in Mel bourne by getting influential sup port for it.
