SWIMMING [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

By "SUBSTITUTE." It is interesting to know that the annual carnival of the* Mildura Amateur Club, held in the River Murray, at the wharf, was the most successful ever held in connection with that club. Naturally the officials who had in hand the compiling of the programme are well pleased with the result of their efforts. As a matter of fact, Mr W. Slater (the hon. secretary and treasurer) informs me that, considering the splendid number of en tries received were all from members of the club, the same can be regarded as a record for any country club in the State. There was a large attendance of the general pub lic, who viewed the racing from the several piers of the wharf, where seating accommo dation and shade were to be had. The club championship (11 entrants) was won, after a keen struggle, by the old Brigh ton champion (E. S. Creaton) who managed to defeat Stan Shilliaay by a couple of yards. Bert Plant, an old Wesley boy, secured third honors. There were 28 entries for the 50 y...

BOATING By "ROWLOCK." Form was maintained remarkably well at the Upper Yarra and Albert Park Lake re gattas, held ou January 24 and 26 respec tively. Entries for the two regattas were practically the same, and the results also similar In most of the events. At both events the maiden pairs was won by Footscray, the maiden sculls by A. F. S. Dobson (University), the maiden fours and senior fours by Albert Park, the maiden j eights by Mercantile, and the junior pairs by Hawthorn. The only variations were In the senior pairs, which Ballarat won on the( Yarra and Richmond on the lake: and the light-weight maiden fours, which Wendouree won on 'Saturday and Albert Park on i?on day. The rowing at both regattas was of a high class, and many of the finishes extremely ex citing. Several of the crews showed a gratify ing improvement in form, and manjr of the younger oarsmen gave indications ox reach ing a much higher rank in the near future.

BEWILDERED BRIDGETTE [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

BEWILDERED BRIDGETTE By Madge Barlow [ALL. RIGHTS RESERVED.] The thud, thud of a horse's hoofs furiously a-gallop brought ostlers run ning to the cobble:stoned patch in front of the Golden Dragon. "He rides for a wager!" cried one, as the big roan horse came thundering on, striking sparks from the road. "No, he stops!" The swaying figure in the saddle pulled up so abruptly that his beast almost threw a backward somersault. There was a rush to seize the bridle and haul the animal off its slithering haunches. "The Winchester coach — has it gone?" gasped the rider. "Half ah hour ago," said a man, champing a straw between his teeth. "Get me another horse!" was the imperious command. "We've none, except those resting and awaiting the next coach, your honor," answered the head ostler. "When does the next pass?" "Ten o'clock, sir." "Five hours! I can't delay. Feed and water my horse, and have him ready in forty minutes." . "Impossible, sir. He's badly lamed." The gentleman bit a whitening ...

THE WAY TO PARADISE [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

THE WAY TO PARADISE By June Gahan Lucia flung down her sewing with a scowl and a mutter. She hated it— hated anything that kept her indoors, now that it was fine April weather. To say the truth, she rebelled at tasks of every sort, except m the rare moods when work became play to her. She was not like Bee —■ Beata, who sat stitching and smiling, away from the window. Lucia ran up to her, snatched the garment from her fingers, tossed it upon the bed and said with a stamp of the foot, "Come with me! You must! Else mother will call me back. I shall die, really die, if I let all this first sun shiny day go to waste." "But the children need clothes—you know they have outgrown almost everything," Bee protested. "Mother will sew for them if we do not—and you know her eyes " She stopped there, her voice break ing a little. Lucia flung up her head. "Only for a little while," she pleaded. "I will sew to-night, till midnight, if I can keep awake. Do come, Bee. I must go—and mother will be so f...

PLAYS AND PLAYERS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

By At Her Majesty's Theatre "The Forty Thieves" is still being subject to alteration in various minor respects. When this writer* looked in on the pantomime last week some new com edy business had been introduced by Ali Baba and the Dame, but tins did not compensate for the loss of Mr Bay ay Laipino's quaint "intoxication dance," which was omitted from the performance. One of the most popu lar features of the show is undoubtedly the song-, "Whoops, Let's Do It Again," which is rendered by Mr Lupino and Mr Brett with the more than usually cordial assistance of the gallery. Also at the matinees the children "whoop" with a will and appear to enjoy them selves thoroughly. To those intimately acquainted with the work of Walter Melville, the most disappointing feature of "The Soldier's Wedding," which was staged at the Princess's Theatre on January 24, is the play's old-lasiiioned conventionality. The author shows none of that bizarre originality which he displayed so con spicuously in "M...

M'CORMICK VICTORIOUS. HOLBERG DISQUALIFIED. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

M'CORiKCK VICTOR!O'US. KOLBERG DISQUALIFIED. Ten thousand spectators* who had tore gathered at the Melbourne Stadium on Janu ary 21 in anticipation to witnessing a great boxing contest, were sorely disap pointed, for Waldemar Holberg, tlie Dane, proved no match for Tom M'Cormick, the Englishman, and even had Holbers not been disqualified in the sixth round for hitting low lie would probably have been decisively defeated. In all but the first round M'Cormick proved himself to be V" *f«u* the better boxer, and Ixis tactics completely non-plussed Holberg, whose persistent hitting low gave E. Fulla love, the referee, no option but lo stop the contest in the sixth round, and award the verdict to the Englishman. . They were a well matched pair physically, and this was emphasised when the weight of each was announced as 10st.- o^ilb.

VINES AND WINES VITICULTURAL INDUSTRY PROGRESS IN VICTORIA AN OFFICIAL REPORT [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

PROGRESS IN VICTORIA AN OFFICIAL. REPORT Mr P. de Castella, the viticultural expert, has furnished Dr. Cameron, Director of Agriculture with a report in regard to viticulture in Victoria. It is pointed out that 69 per cent, of the last vintage was devoted to raisins, currants and sultanas, and the balance to wine making. The wine exported consisted largely of dry red wine of the Burgundy type, but more alcoholic than the dry French Burgundy, and fuller bodied. Nothing exactly simi lar to it has yet been produced in any of the wine countries of Europe or in Algeria. . That it is suited to the English taste is shown by the fact that only Australian wine imports to the mother country show an increase in recent years, imports from all other sources having declined. The Vic torian demand is mostly for sweet wines. The very light dry wines which constitute almost the entire home consumption in every wine pro ducing country of Europe are little known here. There appears to be an increase i...

STREET TRADERS SELF-SUPPORTTNG CHILDREN. SUPERVISION PROPOSED. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

■ EE-LP-SUPPORTTNG CHILDREN. ' SUPOSRVISION PROPOSED. For some time the problem of the Juvenile street trader has been exercis ing- the minds of Melbourne people in terested in the welfare of children. The desirability of placing juvenile street traders under licence and regu lation is recognised by the majority. It is felt that the movement is new likely to assume definite shape, for there is an earnest effort and quiet per sistency about the method of those in terested in the scheme. They have tarried patiently, holding to their ob ject with confidence in its ultimate at tainment. So far back as 1891 a conference was held to consider the subject of neglected children and truants, and it submitted recommendations for the licensing and control of street traders. Another ef fort was made to secure legislative con trol over street vendors in 1897. In 1900 a juvenile protection commit tee considered five subjects relative to the protection of children, street ven dors constituting one ...

VITICULTURE IN NEW SOUTH WALES AN OFFICIAL REPORT [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

VITICULTURE IN NEW SOUTH WALES AN OFFICIAL REPORT Tne present position or tne viticui tural industry in New South Wales is described in the annual report of Mr Blunno, Government Yiticultural Ex pert, who points out that the quality of the wines has greatly improved. But the output is decreasing in the districts of Corowa and Albury, owirig to the ravages of phylloxera, which has destroyed some of the vineyards, and affected several others. It is satis factory to note, however-, that exten sive new plantings* have been made with vines grafted on phylloxera-re sistant stocks, imported from France. Plantings of this kind are still being made. In the counties of Cumberland and Camden the table grape industry, which was affected by the spread of phylloxera, is resuming its normal level, the larger yields of the newly constituted vineyards having made up the loss of crop caused by the number of small vineyards that went out of cultivation. The small area of the holdings in the counties n...
