Methodist Church. ANNIVERSARY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 January 1915

Methodist Church. ANNIVERSARY. Rev G. H. Cole, of the Central Missions, Melbourne, conducted the Methodist Church anniversary services on Sunday last. There were large attendances, especially in the evening. The rev gentle man gave two very splendid dis courses and inspired his congre gations to more active and zealous work in the cause of righteous ness. The morning text- was ' Keep yourselves in the love of God.' For the children's portion a most suitable motto was given, viz., To be-Character; to do, Ser vice; to do without, Self-sacrifice. This motto was strikingly illus trated, to the pleasure and profitof all, The singing was led by the choir, Mr Jones and Miss Fletcher rendered 'sacred solos, suitably and feelingly. On the evening following, Mr Cole was announced to speak of his travels. The church was well fil led, chiefly with visitors, who thoroughly- enjoyed the hour-and a-half's run through the United Kingdom, from whence Mr Cole has just returned. He took his audience w...

THE KIMBERLEY MUD FIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 January 1915

T-HE KIMBERLEY MUD FIG?HT. No greater duel with death, or more striking example of heroism, will ever be recorded than that in connection with the fight with mud in the Kim berley mines on July 12, 1907, as a result of which six English miners were awarded the Edward medal. The mud rush, which means certain death to all in its track, came with out warning. The natives, working in a kind of hollow, were made prison ers at once, the exit door being com pletely blocked. They cried wildly for help, and the Englishmen commanded them to climb a wall out of reach of the mud, until they thought out a means of rescue. There was only one way,. and that was through a tunnel, which )vas al ready half-filled with the rising mud. To go through the mud to the rescue of the natives was out of the ques tion; they would have to pass over it. One brave Englishman placed a plank upon the face of 'the mud, and stretched himself upon it. Fortunate ly, it did not sink, and gradually he canoed himself forw...

Britain's Navy. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 January 1915

Britain's Navy. The following extracts are made from a etter received by a Queens cliff resident from a relative serv ing on board one of H.M. battle.. ships. The sentiment displays the old:British marine determinedness to uphold the honor of the nation. No doubt this will be read with great interest: 'After returning from my- isit I received my commission in the R.N.A. I was appointed to one of- His Majesty's ships to do 28 days' training, but was given my war appointment instead, and here I am, four months away now, with the-prospect of another 12. How ever, I would not wish to be any where else. I consider myself for, tunate to get my appointment in time to serve our country in such a .crisis. I only ask that I may be given a chance of taking part in the naval battle which is sure to come sooner or later.. I am not allowed to say where we are, so all that dear parents know is. that I am floating around somewhere, guarding our island shore. What a terrible change we have had all i...

THE SEABROOK MEMORIAL. Opening Ceremony and Demonstration. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 January 1915

THE SEABROOK MEMORIAL Opening Ceremony and Demonstration.   The life-saving station erected at Pt Lonsdale opposite the Glaneuse Reef in memory of the late William Thomas Seabrook was formerly opened by Mayor Cuzens on Satur- day last, in the presence of a large gathering. It will be remembered that on January 3rd, 1914, Mr William Seabrook lost his life in at- tempting to save Miss Hunter, who was also drowned while surf bathing near the Glaneuse Reef, which is about a quarter of a mile west of the Point Lonsdale lighthouse. The life-saving station, which was considered the most suitable memorial of Mr Seabrook's heroism, is built of jarrah and has a neat ap- pearance. It is fitted up with a life-saving equipment, including an ambulance first-aid outfit, which has kindly been donated by Mr Harold Grimwade, of Melbourne. The cost of the building is about £143, which sum was subscribed by the public. This fund was placed in the hands of the trustees -Mr R. W. E. Wilmot (...

TROUBLE IN CONVERTING THE ISLAND OF LAGILOLO. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 30 January 1915

rROUBLE IN CONVERTING THE ISLAND OF LAGILOLO. "Yes," said the beachcomber, "we 've had a lot of trouble in convertin' our island. One misfortune and an other happened to the missionaries by unforseen circumstances. Of course, I'm only speakin' of events that took place since I've been king of the Island. It was in 1865 on the ship Gineral Jackson that I was put in an open boat on the Pacific Ocean, through the schemin' of the Rev. James McBeaser. I was a circus clown and a Baptis'. - The ship had stormy weather, got delayed, and begun to run out of water and food. The Rev. James MeBeaser was a board, goin' to the islands as a mis sionary-a Sandemanian missionary. He organised a revival, and they all came into it but me, which I couldn't do, as a Baptis'. We kept on havin' bad weather, and he told the crew that we couldn't expect good weather as long as there was anybody on the ship that wouldn't jine the revival. That turned the sailors against me, and when he advised 'em to turn me...

THE BLIGHT OF ISLAM. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 30 January 1915

~TH BLIGHT OF ISLAM. (By. a Banker) The country on which is concen Strated the supremest regard of all Christendom, far surpassing in interest and fascination any other place in the whole world-the Holy Land--o wing to the blighting effects of the effete rule of the Turk, in rough weather is practically shut out and isolated from the world. For the absence of any harbour, ': which any civilised power, even the .mosti'ilimiportant, would .long ago lihaS :provided; renders landing al I '-tgethler. impracticable except. in fairly nioderate weather. And even then a landing at Jaffa (formerly Joppa) is an experience frequently, though happily not al -ways, the reverse of agreeable. The steamer anchors some distance from `the town and is soon sur rounded by Arab boats, one of which approaches the lowered stair gangway as near as practicable. The passenger then decends the stairway .and seats himself, or her self-and woe. be to, her. if she be stout arid, heavy-on small grating at foot, hi...

Sunday Corner. Blessings of Tribulation. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 30 January 1915

Sunday Corner. Blessings of Tribulation. When you have passed through a season of suffering and stand _il.beyond it, there ought to be a new light in your eye, a new glow in your face, a new gentleness in your touch, a new hope in your heart, and a new consecration in your life.- You ought not to stay in the shadows of the sorrow, but to come again out of them, radiant with the light of victory and peace into the place of service and duty. The comfort that God gives puts deep new joy into the heart, and anoints the mourner or the sufferer with a new baptism of love and power.

PUBLICATIONS. A Century After Waterloo. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 30 January 1915

PUBLICATIONS.`` A Century After Waterloo. Dr Fitchett, in the February number of 'Life' just issued,.turns. back the pages of history and points out that exactly a century ago Europe was just freeing itself from a despotism built on force, and using war as its instrument. ' And,' says Dr Fitchett, ' 1915 is born amid the shock of battles which in scale and slaughter are equal to a hundred Water loos. Waterloo was described by Wrel lington himself as " the battle which did more for-the peace of the world than any other battle in recorded history." It cer tainly put an end to Napoleon's restle.s and insatiable ambition, and so delivered the nations frcm a military despotism. But in 1915 four of the great Western Powers, with Japan, the greatest Power in the East, as ally, are leagured to de liver the civilised world from the menace of a military caste which lacks Nspo leon's genius for war-lacks even his civic genius-but aims, like him, at a despotism built on force; and using war as ...

BIG DEALS. Some Famous Spot-Cash Transactions. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 30 January 1915

'BIG DEALS. Some Famous Spot-Cash Transactions. The sudden purchase of 'the Picca dilly Hotel for the sum' of £500,0C is a remarkable instance of .a hu concern changing hands in a fe moments. It was easy -enough ?Mr. .Mallaby-Deeley to draw a chel, for half a million, but the comt cated nature of the deal is only Zparent when one tries to real what half a million of mot really is. But half a million down is by , means -a record. There have been numerous sales of great English es tates during the last twenty years, and more than £500,000.has been paid on at least two occasions. One es tate alone-the Kensington-realised over £600,000, and the whole trans action did not cover two hours. Even within the past three. months two estates changed hands for £250,000 apiece. Mr. Pierpont Morgan has been as sociated. with many big deals Somi years ago he was shown a collection of old masters, and promptly pur chased the lot for one million pounds sterling, drawing a single cheque for .the amoun...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 30 January 1915

THE Bowling Green maintains its popularity as a pleasure resort. This season it has been patronised by visitors to a greater extent than previously. This is accounted for by reason of the increased number of bowling clubs throughout the State. In almost every town of any pretence there is a bowling club. The different communities fully recognise, that this kind of amusement, for youthful as well as elderly, is necessary for the well being of town and individual. A fraternity is produced seldom equalled in any pastime or society. Queenscliff has provided its club not alone for residents, but, it may be said, principally for visitors, so tha* it is gratifying to find so many attending day by day. There is' no doubt that if it were not for the Bowling Green Queenscliff would not have the same'regular visitors, nor would we have the± -same status as a watering place. The club. will welcome any who are bowlers or who would care for membership, visitor or resident. As already announced, a...
