STATE ELECTIONS. THE WALHALLA SEAT. MR. BARNES AGAIN RETURNED. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 2 December 1914
STATE ELECTIONS. THE WALHAliliA. SEAT. MR. BARNES AGAIN RETURNED. The State Elections took place on Thursday, and resulted in few changes in the personnel of—or parties in—Par liament. In the Walballa electorate, as in all other parts of the State, there was a.falling-off in the number of votes recorded, but notwithstanding this fact, Mr Barnes was again returned with a substantial majority—well on towards a thousand votes. Locally, the election passed off quietly, and it is evident that several votes were unrecorded. Mr Barnes spent the best part of the afternoon at Moe,and left towards evening (in the company of a party of supporters) for Walhalla. Mr Thos. Cromb handled the "ribbons," and landed the party in Walhalla a little before 11 o'clock. Mr Barnes (also the other visitors) was accorded a splendid reception, and sub sequently accepted the hospitality of Mr J. Finalyson, at whose residence an ex cellent supper was partaken of, and a number of toasts honored. (We may here say...
CORRESPONDENCE. GIPPSLAND CO-OPERATIVE BACON COMPANY. (TO THE EDITOR GIPPSLAND STANDARD). [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 2 December 1914
CORRESPONDENCE. [We wish it to be distinctly understood that we do not necessarily approve of the opinions expressed by correspondents in this column.] GIPPSLAND CO-OPERATIVE BACON COMPANY. (to the editor CaPl'SLAXD standard). Sir,—I appreciate the efforts made by you to rouse shareholders by urging them to wake up to the interests of their own company. I beg space, however, to give a sbort resume of my statements to the meeting, as there are some inaccuracies in your report which lend themselves to misunder standing. You place the credit of our company on a much lower plane than I did when you suggest the auc tioneers' well-known formula to de scribe it. I informed the meeting that the two-thirds advance which our com pany had been paying to suppliers must now cease. The advance had been made possible by an advance against stocks from the Gippsland and Northern Selling Co., and this advance was to be withdrawn at an ea^ly date. To show that the Gippsland and Northern Co. did not wi...
LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 2 December 1914
LADIES' LETTER. S'tripes are playing a very import ant part to-day. The following lines will give some idea as to the most effective way to use material print ed in this fashion. The very deep gathered or pleated flounce is to be seen decorating many of the spring models. Such flounc'es are usually allied to the slimmest of skirts, for the reason that the flounces themselves are so full that there is no occasion to add to the width. Then, again, you can have a tunic from the waist nearly to the hem of the dress, this latter also being very narrow, and the tunic spreading out towards the base. As a rule sucli frocks are not very becom- ! ing. Sometimes stripes are made up in this way, the stripes of the horizontal forming the under-dress, and those on the perpendicular the tunic. Stripes are decidedly fashion able just now, and are to be seen expressed in silk, foulard, cambric, and muslin. Stripes of the gayest colorings are used for waistbelts, and also to form bows for millinery. ...
RED CROSS SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 2 December 1914
RED CROSS SOCIETY. A meeting of the above was held at the Moe Mechanics'. Institute on Tuesday afternoon last. The Presi dent (Mrs Colin Robertson) pre sided. The minutes of the previous meeting were read and confirmed. A letter from Mrs Munro (Nar racan) was read, expressing her de sire to assist the movement, and intimating that she had forwarded a parcel of goods.—The gift wns acknowledged with thanks. The articles which had been for warded to the Branch were now opened up, and Red Cross badges attached. At a previous meeting, it was suggested that the ladies bring any work they are undertaking with them to the meetings. This sug gestion was acted upon, and no doubt assisted to make the above meeting pass off most pleasantly, besides doing much to help the work forward. At all future meet ings, the members will continue with their needlework, etc. The following additional dona tions (in cash and kind) have been received : — On 17th November :—Mrs Whit takers, 5s; Miss Laidlaw, 5s...
TELLING THE TIME BY OIL. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 2 December 1914
•TELLING THE TIME BY OIL, Do you know tliat every iniiier, when descending into the pit to work) takes with him a couple of clocks? These are not ordinary timepieces, for they have neither wheels, springs,, dials, nor any of the usual appurten ances. The "clocks" are simply , his lamp and oil-flask. By noting ■ the quantity of oil consumed—or that left—the miner can tell to within a l'ew minutes any hour of the. day or night. ..When a miner's lamp goes out, as it'not infrequently does, in almost any circumstances he must not relight it himself. Instead, though he may be left in pitch darkness, he must grope hie way to the lamp-cabin, or to some other point where lie can obtain the proper assistance. He does the "groping" with his hands, stooping down until he touches the tram-lines along which the coals are taken, and sliding his hands along the metals un til he reaches his destination or meets someone going in the same di rection. A coal-hewer's earnings depend 011 the weight of co...

? t&tye Jl&srxrcate* Published Wednesday Mornings. WEDNESDAY, DECEpEH 2, 1914. Local and General News. f Owing to the unpropitious weather, the garden fete to have been conducted "in the Manse grounds, Moe, on Wed nesday last, had to be postponed, the date fixed upon being Thursday, 3rd December. We hear of nothing but the fete spoken of in the streets, and it really seems that everybody is going —either in the afternoon or at night. All who do are assured of a really enjoyable time. There are numerous attractions, including a great tennis match (on the Manse court), cookery competitions, etc., etc. The opening ceremony will be performed by Cr Beck (in the absence of the shire president, Cr Branigan, who has a previous engagement) at 2.30 p.m., at which hour it is expected there will be a large attendance. The proceeds are in aid of St. Andrew's Church. Altogether, the function should prove a brilliant success, that is, if the management is favoured with good weather...
AMAZING INVENTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 2 December 1914
AMAZING INVENTIONS. . An apparatus by which blood may., bo removed, cleansed of impurities, and returned to the system, ahd a contri vance; by which it can be determined whether one is suffering from liupger or merely has an appetite, were among the inventions demonstrated recently by members of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology. A dog was utilised to illustrate the blood-purifying apparatus which was the result of thework of Doctors J. J. Abel, L. G. Rowntree, and B. B. fur ner, of Johns Hopkins "University. Dr. A. J. Carlson, of the University of Chi* cago, demonstrated on himself the efficiency of the hunger-testing ma chine, which was his own invention. Swallowing a small cigar-shaped bal loon which had been fitted with long rubber tubes, he inflated the balloon in his stomach through the tubes and then attached the latter to sensitised paper. Hunger, he declared, caused the muscles of the stomach to grip the balloon and drive out the air, which regis...

" I know dements Tonic it used extensively ■ by the "profession, and nurses know its value and are seldom without it. Once a patient got very weak and low spirited, and I gave her Clements Tonic. A few doses made a change for the better, she rapidly be came bright and cheerful, it gave her health and strength and soon put her on her feet again, which made her a firm believer in Clements Tonic. Since, I have given it to many patients with the same good results, I am at a loss to know how we, who look after the sick, could get on without that splendid medicine. (Si&necD NURSE GARD."

TRUE DEVOTION. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 2 December 1914
TRUE DEVOTION. If 1 had a thousand lives to live I'd live them all for you; If I had a thousand hearts to give, You'd get the thousand, Sue. Ou the other hand, in the winter's storm, When you're so cold you're blue, If you bad a hundred feet to warm, I'd warm them all for you! "Petrograd" writes:—A naturalised German who works with me got a letter from his mother in Saxony last week, and he allowed me to • read several passages in it. In one his old mother eays: "Both Paul and I-Ieinrich are at the front, arid we have had no word of them for weeks, though we expected they would write from Paris or London. The dear God lcnows what the end will be with all- - the world against us and every fac- I tory in this district closed. Your father and I have no hope and no means, and are facing starvation.

WHUEUE! [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 2 December 1914
WHUEUE! They had cut off a Chinaman's queue, And were painting his head a bright blueue; So the Chinaman said, As they daubed at his head: "When I sueue yueue, youeue'll rueue what yueue dueue." The casual Australian has been in evidence during operations connected with the preparation of Tasmania's contribution to . the Expeditionary Force. "Say, mister," remarked a six-foot speciment of outback young manhood as he filled the doorway of one of the nprthern recruiting offices, "are you the cove that signs on chaps fur this bloomin* war?" "f'm the man you're looking for," the officer re plied. "Have you had any military experience?" "Naw," came the re sponse as the giant strode into the apartment. "But I've bin shootin' kangaroo an' Avallaby fur ten year an' more, so I reckon I orter be good enough if it comes a matter o' shootin' Germans."
ACCORDING TO NATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 2 December 1914
ACCORDING TO NATURE. He saw a peach across tlie way All smiles and passing fair. Quick shift—a word—an answer gay— The peacli became a pair. The British Navy rules tlie waves, while the German Army waives the rules. Total prohibition laws in New Zea land have stimulated the inventive faculty of the inebriated under the care of the Salvation Army at Rotorua. They have learned in the asylum how to make a very potent wine out of parsnips which are grown in the grounds. It is not everybody that can eat parsnips. Those who dislike them are emphatic in their anti pathy and declare thst !hey ought to be given only to animals. Parsnip eaters on . the other hand often be come infatuated with the vegetable and now the anti-parsnip section will say that it is the alcoholic taint in the parsnips which charms its con sumers. For a long time the Salva tion Army authorities at Rotorua were puzzled as to where the in ebriates got their liquor, until it was noticed that they were very keen on garden...
