Why Labor Won. Mr Wade's Idea. INTERSTATE JEALOUSY. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 1 June 1910
Why .Labor Won. Mr Wade's Sdea. INTERSTATE JEALOUSY. The Premier (Mr Wade), speaking at the annual meeting of the Liberal and Reform Association last week, said that ,the recent Federal elections would seem . to show that a wave of public opinion had swept over Australia in favour of Labor, but upon analysing the figures he had come to tne conclusion tuat tlie State Liberal Party was not seriously threatened. (Applause:)' One ofthe factors, continued Mr Wade, which operated ^against the Federal Liberals was interstate jealousy in Vic toria. Beyond all doubts votes were cast against the Fusion Government because there was a feeling of antagonism against New South Wales, or those Ministers re presenting New South Wales. . (Ap plause.) In New South Wales the sarno principle operated, and votes were either withdrawn or given against the Fusion Government on account ofresent mentwith regard to the composition' of the Ministry from the point of view of New South Wales and Victoria.

MEN'S PERILOUS PLIGHT. HANGING FROM RAILWAY BRIDGE. Seymour, Friday. The: -facts of a remarkable escape on the railway line have just come to light. During the week Mr Archie Anderson and James Fleming were putting in 1 sleepers on a bridge, near the Goulburn Junc tion, when a goods train took them by surprise. They were in the middle of the bridge at the time, and to have jumped into the billabong 30ft. below would have been madness, , as it was studded with logs and piles. There was no time to reach the ,end of the bridge. In the few seconds at their disposal Ander son and Fleming pulled a loose sleeper which they were laying from under the rail to save the train from being wrecked, and scrambled over the side -oi the bridge. .They were hardly out of the way when the engine dashed past. With one hand the men supported themselves, while with the other they guarded their faces from splintered.sleepers and tools, which had already been hit by the engine. Fleming was struck on the han...

A WORD TO THE ELDEST DAUGHTER. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 4 June 1910
A WORD TO THE ELDEST DAUGHTER. Do you ever look round the parlor and then think vaguely to yourself tha- someone really ought to tidy it, shake up the cushions, refill the flower vases, etc.? The place looks to you neglected; Or. perhaps your wandering eye fast ens on a hole in the .-tablecloth. 'Someone ought to darn that,' you think. But perhaps you never go to the length of settling just who should un dertake these little duties that make such a difference in the appearance of a house. Anyone else in the family could tell you at once. You're the person! That's quite a new point of view, isn't it? But when you come to think of it, whose duty should it be, if not yours? Mother is much too busy seeing to the housekeeping, and you couldn't expect one of the small children to darn a tablecloth with much eclat, or refill the flower-vases without break ing them. ? . ? So now you've been told, you'd bet- . ter set to work and undertake these . little jobs that are really no trouble at al...

It has been said 'that unless immediate action is taken to remedy the present unsatisfactory state of affairs, there is likely to be a strike at the Roma-street barracks.

A fine old house away from London, a country seat, was the very thing you wanted. To' those that have, you know, all things are given.' Old Mr. Courtney lifted his glass, no ting with the eye of a connoisseur the clear purple of his wine; then he drain ed it, and nodded his silver head, a beaming smile upon his features. Arnold Spencer acknowledged the toast gravely, his handsome serious face bearing a thoughtful expression. The old lawyer gazed at him again, and his smile faded. A perplexed light dawned in his eyes. 'You have everything in the world,' he continued; 'good friends, good for tune, good health. Don't think me in trusive nor yet prying; but— but why can you find no satisfaction in your life? You have a foremost position at the Bar, a splendid and enviable posi tion, and whilst you have struggled and been poor in the past, surely you can forget all tha...

The Dumb Waiter Baby By Charles Somerville. Startled and utterly dismayed, little white-haired Mrs. Tim Kenny sat in her comfortable ground floor apart ? ment in Harlem with the baby that did not belong to her. It was not the behavior of the baby that worried her. He lav on a Dillnw on her lap with his fat pink legs . sprawled, his fat fists softly clenched, his fat cheeks healthfully flushed, and - his big blue eyes closed fast in sleep Even the fact that the baby did not . belong to her, had, indeed, been foisted upon her through the falso pretences of a wretched young mother, was not her source of particular worry either She would have liked to have wel comed the baby as a tender, happy relief for her growing loneliness. It was the thought, however, of what her big husband Tim would say and what he would do when he found her in possession of the strange baby that brought all the startled concern into ? her mild blue eyes.

Mr Thomas A, Edison's newly invented storage battery tram' car, which was used experimentally for three weeks on the twenty-oight-street cross-town line in New York, has proved so successful that the company has ordered sixteen more of the cars. The company says the experi mental-car has demonstrated the efficiency of Mr Edison's invention, which is the result of ten years' application to the problem of the storage battery. The car ran 66 miles a day for the three weeks, .; with enough energy left in the car at tho end of each day to work it miles more. : The cost of working has been slightly Ie3s : than OJ^d. a mile, which is below the '? \- ?-: estimate of Mr Edison himself, who ? - thought the cost would approximate Id a. v mile.
