MONEY IN GARDENING FOR WOMEN. One.- of the chicf features of ' Every:ady's Journal," for August (just to hand) is a very beautiful illustrated article on Gprdening for Women, in which the writer shows how gardening may be made not only a dehlightful hobby, but a pay ing matter for any woman with brains and energy. The horticul tural knowledge is not difficult to obbtain4 but.a great deal. of perse verance and som 1etarvvorq are nid aryf;f. H&4e ..s Othe wri ter' points ,out, it is useless to grow flowers unless the gardener has a good deal of commonsense in dis posing oi?.the goods. That there is an exCelleht 'market to be ob tained in almost every part of A'stralia '.is 'almost 'certain, and that the demand for women gar deners only needs encouraging is also evident.

THE INDUSTRIAL SIDE. Speaking at the industrial Court Sydney, Mr. Justice Heydonsaid -The fact that an extreme Euro pean war has broken out, greatly changes the industrial conditions, even mn a very short time. These changes may make the awards m their present forjn no longer suit able, and I wish to point out to the industrial world that the gene ral rule that riwards are to run their termns, and are not likely to be re-opened, applies, of course, only- when inatters'are pursuing their ordinary course, and not to times of violent and sudden change If 'the parties concerned in any award should find ,therefore, that it ought to be altered, or that fresh. provisions are required to meet a, state of things never conterimpla-. ted, they have only to approach their boards or the court. If those who are interested consent to the changes, immediate action can be taken. If, on the other hand, con ditions are askea for on one side which are disputed by the other, an enquiry can be made at th...

BANQUET POSTPONED. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 11 August 1914
BANQUE'I POSTPONED. I In consequence of the war, the annual dinner of the Master Build ers' Association of Melbourne, I fixed for August a0, hWas been post poned indefinitely. The committee, In retracting in vitations, expressed the feeling that while Great Britain is'involved in so great a ,war, gatherings of a convivial nature should not be held A very large number of Austra lians will 'endorse th:s view, and commend the association fo.r its thoughtfulness. Austrahla has never yet known the horrors and burdens of war, because Great Bri tain has always shielded her infant States, while ,givmlng them a free dom in government that no other nation has ever allowed. Just now the dear old Mother 'is fight ing and shedding her blood and treasure just as much for her child' ren ove' the sea as for herself and alliecs, and 'to honor her treaty obligationrs. Hence during this life and death struggle it would be callous and unpatr'otic to hold Iconvivial gatherings.

UPPER FLYNN'S CREEK. Mr. W. Widdis ,who has been a resident of Upper Flynn's Creek for a number of years, recently sold his homestead property t6 Mr Rathjen to reside in Traralgon.

There was a good gathering in the local local hall on Thursday evening, when nearly 200 people were pre sent.

Municipal Elections. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 11 August 1914
mslue ,nurual TUESDAY, AUGUST 11. Municipal Elections.-Under or dinary conditions, the municipal elections would be attractinga good deal of attention just now. But though the election day is vewy little more than a fortmnght off, very little is being said on the sub ject. No doubt this is largely due to the European war-the greatest in the history of'the world-which is throwing its shadow over Aus tralia. That shadow is about 12,000 miles long, and it has co-' vered Commonwealth, State, ana municipal industrial and social life. In the Traralgon shire the retiring representatives are Councillors E. S. Whittakers and C. Clarkie BBlzth are willing to serve the ratepayers aigain, and as they iave given much of their time in their endeavours to giPromote the interests of the shire no one desires to displace them.

WAR AND THE TARIFF FEDERAL ISSUES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 11 August 1914
WAR AND THE TARIFF FEDERAL ISSUES. A great European • war must exercise, far reaching inEfluences on Australian revrenue and on Aus tralian expenditure. Further than that. no cautious politician cares to go. Should Great Britain secure and maintain such absolute. control of the ocean that shlpS pass un disturbed between London and Melbourne whilst Russia, Germany and France exhaust themselves in an insane struggle, one set of con sequences follow. If Great Britain does not absolutely command the world's waterways another set of consequences will follow. In the former case the Austra'ian produ cer will grow rich, as mn fairy tales; and in the other he will be plunged into depression such as he never imagined. And the issue is in the lap of the gods, or, to put it in a different way, we in Australia can do nothing to determine it. Clearly, this profound uncer tainty makes a temporary end of the rival policies submitted by Mr Cook and Mr. Fisher. No sane in dividual would dream ok borr...
