Evidonco at Port Albort. In the afternoon the committee tra velled to Port Albert, where evidence was henrd at the Ship Inn. Henry Avery, fisherman, Tort Al bert, stated he was representing both the Tort Albert Progress Association and the Port Albert Fishermen's As sociation. Speaking on behalf of the Progress Association, they favored a line from Sale to Albcrton principally from the view of the tourist trallic. They considered that if they were con nected with the North by railway a large number of tourists would ava-.l themselves of the attractions for boat ing and fishing. They wanted the line to come right to the wharf, as at present they had great difliculty in transporting large numbers of people from the station, a mile from the town. It took over an hour to trans port TOO peopie to the wharf. On be half of the Fishermen's Association he said the line would be of no use to them unless they had communication with the water.

Repentance Postponed. All old negro parson was denoun cing theft to his congregation when he saiil: "If there is auv member of this congregation who is guilty of theft he had better repent at once and be saved." On his way home he was stopped by an old Rastus, who had listened to the sermon intently. '"Don't you think, parson, that next Sunday will do just as well as to night to repent?" asked Rastus. "But, Hastas, why not repent to night nnd be saved, man?" "Well, parson. It's this way," ex plained Rastus. "I want lust one mo' chicken fo' to-morrow's dinner, and I know wlia I can get dat chicken wid out bein' caught to-night."

PIONEERS OF EMPIRE. Adventures Among Cannibals. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 12 June 1914

PIONEERS OF EMPIRE. Adventures Among Cannibals. "Of the many gallant men," the late Lord Shaftesbury once said, "who have done heroes' work as Scouts of Empire, 1 linow none who bore a braver heart through more perils than .lamps Chalmers, who was the pioneer and virtual founder of British New Guinea." If ever a mail was bom for adven ture it was surely this son of nil Aber deen stone-mason, who was cradled one August, day in 18-11, in an obscure fishing vil'.age on Loch Fyne; and who seems in have imbibed a passion for roaming with the first breaths of sea-air he drew. Before he had entered his teens, •lames Chalmers had made - a local hero of himself by saving two lives at great risk to his own, and was known .is the most fearless lad in the district. It was an unkind fate that coiuIcnMicd him for a few years to a stool in solicitor's office at Invcr ary; and i. was a glad day when em ancipation came: after tlirco years' training, ho was pent away to the far South Seas as missiona...

LIGHT LOAMS FOR DAIRY FARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 12 June 1914

LIGHT LOAMS FOR DAIRY FARMS. The ideal soil for ;i dairy farm is a loam of medium to light texture. A loam is the name usually applied to soil which contains fait- proportions of the principal plant food ingredients, and is rich in that important constitu ent humus which is known to play so large a part in plant growth. Loamy soils are usually low lying, and while sufficiently open texture to al low the winter rains to pass through without lodgment or stagnation, they are at the same time so pervious that even in dry summer weather the water underneath comes up with such freedom they very seldom suffer from drought. For this reason loamy soiU usually carry a good growth of grass during the greater part of the year— from early spring to late In the au tumn. In addition to this the herb age produced on them is usually of good quality, and when properly treat ed and kept clear of objectionable weeds, such herbage will be found to consist very largely' of the better descriptions of gras...

A GREAT BOON TO HUMANITY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 12 June 1914

A GREAT BOON TO HUMANITY. Bioxide ot sodium seems to he one of the greatest boons to humanity which the century has given—that is, i£ the reports as to the recent demon stration of its qualities before the French academy of science prove to be substantiated. it is said that tills product pos sesses the property of renewing oxy gon, the life-sustaining principle in air, as well as of absorbing carbonic acid as it is given oil. Two men with a new apparatus containing bioxido of sodium are alleged to have put on diving dresses from which all air was excluded, and remained for the spaco of two hours under these conditions Subsequently they remained under water for half an hour under similar conditions. The availability of this new meaus of revitalising air in the case of sub marine craft seems obvious. But Its use is likely to be very extended, en abling firemen to penetrate the dens est smoke without danger of suffoca tion, and miners to pursue their call ing safely, by depriving "fire...
