A LAND OF NO POVERTY [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 18 June 1914

A LAND OF NO POVRRTv Principal Adeney, on a tour round the world, spent two months in the North Island, New Zealand. He sent to the "Christian World" some o( his impressions. Tho first is one ot brightness, both of climate and of people. Dr. Adeney adds "We havo never come across any indication of poverty, never seen n ragged garment or a Blum district. There is practically no unemploy ment and no want. Evei ybody line at least enough to eat, and most enjoy, many comfortB and luxuries. That hideous palace of misery, the work house, is unknown. There are plea sant homes for the ngad, provided by the State, where men and women can retire at the early age ot sixty, at the same time drawing a pension of ten shillings a week. The avcrnRe I wages of a man working in the tim ber mills is from £3 to £4 a week. INcw Zealand, in Dr. Agency's opinion | is rightly named "the working man's paradise .

PAPUAN NATIVES PROTECTED [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 18 June 1914

PAPUAN NATIVES PROTECTED The; impression which seems to have gained ground in Australia lately, ae to the ;ill-treatment and exploitation of Papuan natives has been vigor ously refuted by many residents, both official and. private, in Papua. Messrs. A. M. and O. C. Gors have recently arrived in the Common wealth for a holiday visit, and ex press themselves as being most in dignant "at the false view which is held here as to the conditions of la bour which exist -in the country where they have their home. The stories . that havo been circu lated here, about illegal recruiting, have some foundation of truth ; but in every case it can only happen with the connivance of the magis trate in office. A complete system of Native Pro jection is enforced, and the condi tions sometimes make the white planter's search for labour rather a difficult one. The planter sets out on a tour through the villages far and near. On entering one he inquires whether anyone wants work. In most cases his questi...

To those en gaged in manufacturing enterprises the subjects of the conference may appear dull and uninteresting. I3ut to a country, whose development, progress and prosperity lies solely in the hands of the primary produ :ers, the matters touched on ennnot fail to be of interest aftd instruc lion. The little gathering wasted no time in inflated discussions on theo retical pr fancy subjects. It content cd itself with dealing with necessary and practical matters, such as—Hon the quality of Australian goods may be improved ; how they may he made more attractive to the eye ; how the processes of handling and transport of goods may be simplified ; nnd the best methods to open new, and de velop the present overseas markets.

FOOL-PROOF CARRIAGE LOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 18 June 1914

FOOL-PROOF CARRIAGE LOCK. Mr. George Caswell, of Church-rd., Newport, (Eng.) lias invented a lock for railway carriages which has so ! impressed a Rritisli railway company that the inventor has been offered £19,000 for the patent rights. It is claimed that the contrivance will effectively prevent doors of mov ing trains being opened. The locking and unlocking of the doors will be under the control of llie cngincdriver and the guard ol the train. When a train is leaving a station the driver 1 will turn a wheel attached to a rod connecting all the carriage doors. This simple action will simultane ously lock all the doors. On arriving at a station the guard will turn a wheel to unlock the doors. Mr. Cas well's invention, it is understood, has been thoroughly tested, and has proved absolutely "fool-proof."

Fair-Haired Flirts. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 18 June 1914

Fair-Haired Flirts. +. "fcinetj' of every hundred respond ents in divorce cases are blondes," said a celebrated American lawyer, Mr. Herman L. Roth, recently. "Blondes are vain. Blondes are fic kle. Blondes love no one well but themselves. Blondes invite flirtation and challenge insult. Blondes bear the trade-mark of the coquette. "They say, in effect, ' Catch me ! I am easily caught.' A blonde at tracts instant attention because she hears the trade-mark of the flirt. Her golden hair is a challenge. She is the trouble-maker of the world." Mr. George Hobinson, another di vorce specialist, adds his quota to the indictment of the bright-haired woman. "In the first analysis of a man's emotions," he writes, "even though the man be a fool, he wants a woman who is true, and the bru nette is nothing if not faithful. But it takes a man to win a bru nette. He must put up a fight for her, for she has a miftd and will of her own, ami a brain superior to that of the blonde. A judge of the United...
