GENERAL NEWS. Twenty thousand bags of this season's wheat were loaded on trucks at the Donald railway station up to Monday. Wheat carting is now in full swing. An extensive fire broke out in the Pine Dene district, N.S.W., on Satur day, as the result of a tree being struck by lightning. A departure from the Wonthaggi Council's policy of carrying out al work by day labor has had to be made, as far as asphaltiug footpaths in the business area is concerned. Tenders are to be called. A large black snake, measuring 5 feet 4 inches, was killed at Hoddle. When the reptile was captured it had a smaller snake, measuring 3 feet 6 inches, down its throat. The steamer Dorset took a ship ment from the Portland freezing works of 13,000 carcases of frozen lamb, SO tons of tallow, and a large number of hides, which was valued for export purposes at £12,698.

A TANGLED SKEIN. MELBOURNE, FRIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 9 January 1914
A TANGLED SKEIN. MELBOURNE, FRIDAY. Twenty-four years ago a brisk young bank clerk disappeared from Melbourne, and when his accounts were investigated there was dis covered a shortage of some £4000. The usual warrant was issued, but as the defaulter was able to cover up his tracks the warrant has never been executed. Just about the same time a clerk in another bank in Melbourne got away with a larger amount, but he was lured to London from Spain, arrested and duly sen tenced. These incidents of ancient bank history are recalled by the appearance this week in a Sydney newspaper of an advertisement in the "missing friends column." In this it is set forth that in connection with the estate of the unconvicted defaulter's half sister, who was a member of a well-known educa tional family in a seaside suburb, the missing man is called upon to prove his claims in a London law court bEforeMarch 18th this year. The trouble is that the missing man, who is stated to have been last heard of at P...
CRICKET. DISTRICT ASSOCIATION. THE BAKER CASE. TRANSFER GRANTED. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 9 January 1914
CRICKET. DISTRICT ASSOCIATION. THE BAKER CASE. TRANSFER GRANTED. A special meeting of the associa tion was held last evening to re consider the matter of the applica tion by T. Baker, of Talbot, for a permit to play with Railways. This was refused at the last meeting on the ground that taking Baker from Talbot would seriously affect an already weak club. The president, Mr H. B. Ewens, occupied the chair, and delegates were present from Railways, Maryborough, and Talbot. Baker had in an appeal against the decision at the previous meeting, but the Railway delegates were given leave to withdraw this, and substi tute instead another application for the permit, on the grounds that the applicant was now residing in Mary borough with his family. After some discussion, the Railway dele gates moved that the application he granted. The Maryborough dele gates moved an amendment that the matter be deferred till they had ob tained club instructions. The amendment was lost and the motion carried,...
MAJORCA RACES. A SUCCESSFUL MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 9 January 1914
MAJORCA RACES. A SUCCESSFUL MEETING. Racegoers throughout a wide dis trict concentrate attention on the annual races of the Majorca Club as one of the most interesting of January country meetings. Thus the meeting always draws a- good attendance of followers of the sport, and the gate takings keep well up each year. The races held on Wed nesday last provided no exception to this rule, for the number present showed an improvement. The sum of £25 was taken at the gates, and £16 in bookmakers' fees (at 10s 6d per head). Those present came mostly from Maryborough and the surrounding district, but there were also many from Ballarat, Melbourne and Bendigo. The officers of the Maryborough Race Club were pre sent, and also Mr J. Farmer, vice president of the Ballarat Miners' Turf Club. Had the weather been more propitious the attendance would probably have been larger, but it was an unpleasant day- op pressively hot and dusty. On the course itself, however, -the dust nuisance is unknown, so...
MEXICAN WARFARE. LONDON, FRIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 12 January 1914
MEib CAN WARFARE. LONDON, Famix. The "Times·- corresnondent at Aexico City, in describing the system of warfare-in ~aefxico. savys the Mexican idea of making a soldier is to cram him into s uni form, give him a rifle; and let him fight as best he c-an. Most of them are Indians from the fields, and of a very low intellectual scale. Re cruits are secured by pres?ing, while many criminals are trans ferred from prison into the army. Oticers sbow an incredible lsck of skill in battle. In one instance the Federais, using machine guns, forced the rebels to retire. The nature of the countryl made it easy to cunt on theirt ,retreat1 but the coaonel in command looted. at his watch, said it was time for dinner, and told a bugler to sound the cease ire, and the rebels lisurely ret ired.

WRITERS AND WRITINGS. LITERARY NOTES AND VERSES. THE "HACKED" POET. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 12 January 1914
\ViILTlTEIS AND Wi[l l'ILNN,. LITERARY NOTES AND VERSES. THE " HACKED" POET. "The sprite of poetry is the mcst capricious and elvish of all sprites. No man can tell on what unlikely place it will alight, nor how long or ·hort will be its sojourn. It will make a man write divinely for a few years, and will then desert him utterly and leave him struggling in a mere slough of cleverness." So says Mr A. T. Strong in a scholarly article on Kipling, provoked by the great ballad-maker's latest volume, "Songs from Books." The point of these observations is that the Kiplingi of old-the Kipling of "Rewards and Fairies" and " Actions and Re actions"-is not the Kipling of to day, as exemplified in the more recently-written poems in the new collection. He can still write lyrics of sure strength-witness " The song of Mithras," supposed to be sung to the great Persian God by the soldiers of the 30th Legion, circa A D. 350: Mithras, God of the Sunset, low on the western main, Thiou descending immor...

I am imply pointing out another road thh. leads to the same or even bett-r results. namely, the soilage systiem. In considering the production oi green feeds for dairy cows there is one objection that is almost, aivas raised. that is, the amount of labor required. To this I reply that nothing can- be accomplished without work. a-nd thai the amount of extra labor is not so great, if roghtly nanaged, as I -hali show. The great advantage of sii age is thatt i is the ooor man's friend and that but little capital wi!l b,. needed to carry it on successfully. The winter months...
