GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 27 March 1914
GENERAL NEWS. The will of James Troup, of Coghill's Creek, farmer, who died on February 11 last, has been lodged for probate. It was made on July 25, 1913. By it the testator leaves to the widow and children an estate valued at £10,236 realty and £25,435 personalty. Wild scenes of disorder prevailed at the Temperance Hall, Melbourne, on Wednesday night, when an at tempt was made by the officials of the Shop Assistants' Union to form the warehouse employes of Mel bourne into a union. For an hour and a half the hall resounded with shouts, cheers, hoots, and catcalls, and at the end of that time the union officials had to give up the task as hopeless. Constables were gradually called in, until towards the end of the meeting there were seven or eight in the room, but they were powerless to quell the disturbance. On two or three occasions a riot seemed imminent, and once when a constable caught hold of a young man for some misdemeanor, the crowd surged round the pair in a threatening man...

SUFFRAGETTE OUTRAGE. LONDON, FRIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 30 March 1914
SUFFRAGETTE OUTRAGE, LONDON, Fs , " Abbeylands," at White Abbey in County Antrim, a mansion belong ing to Major-General Sir Hugh M'Calmont, was destroyed by fire last night. Suffragettes are sus pected to have started the condagra tion. The mansion was not occupied at the time, but the damage reaches £15,000. The grounds had recently been used as a drill ground for the Ulster Volunteers. A suffragette message addressed to Sir Edward Carson, M.P., leader of the Ulstermen, has been found in the grounds of " Abbey Lands." The message states that " the betrayal of women leads to disaster." [The Suffragettes were greatly dis satisfied with the answer of Sir Ed ward Carson to a deputation which waited on him to ask whether the Ulster Provisional Government in tended to grant votes to women.]
AEROPLANES V.DIRIGIBLES. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 30 March 1914
AEROPLANES V. DIRIGIBLES. F?ve hundred rounds of ball cartridges were successfully fired from a machine gun mounted on the upper deck of the marine Zeppelin II., at Friedrichsafen, The airship was travelling at the rate of forty-five miles an hour in a strong wind. The gun was handled with ease and precision. Recently the marine Zeppelin I. remained in constant wire. less communication with her home sta tion while the airship was making a twelve-hour fight during which time she could have come to England and return ed. The born enemy of the dirigible is, of course, the aeroplane, in which Eng land is specialising. The aeroplane, for instance, has much greater elevation powers than the dirigible. It can climb to 18,000 feet, and then its endurance is about exhausted. The Zeppelin can rise to 10,000 feet and then travel for twenty hours at that elevation. The dirigible has an average speed of forty miles an hour, against the seventy-five miles an hour of the aeroplane. But no aeroplan...
SMOKE AND ELECTRICITY. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 30 March 1914
SMOKE AND ELECTRICITY. Electricity appeared as a solution for the smoke problem in a recent demon stration. The smoke-abating appliance removed the soot from 900 cubic feet of smoke in a minute at a total cost of about a penny a day for operation. The action of the apparatus consists in pre cipitating the solid particles in the smoke by means of a powerful.electric current, and its invention is based on the fact that one-third to one-half of the solid matter in smoke from smelt ing furnaces consists of particles of iron oxide. Electrical current is applied to the smoke by means of a wire woven through a number of small pipes placed at the top of the chimney so that the sntoke must pass through them. As soon as the electricity is turned on the small particles floating in the smoke are changed to uarge particles which fall back into a bin by their own weight. Its application is not confined, however, to smelting furnaces, for it has been found that the device works as success fully on...
REUTER'S CABLES. IRISH CRISIS. DISSOLUTION RUMORED. THE ARMY TROUBLE. CABINET SITS ALL DAY. LONDON, FRIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 30 March 1914
REUTER'S CABLES. IRISH CRISIS. DISSOLUTION RUMORED. THE ARMY TROUBLE. CABINET SITS ALL DAY. LONDON, FmRIDY. The political situation created by recent developments in the Irish crisis remains most interestinrg, and there are rumors that a dissolution is pending. When the House of Commons met this afternoon the Prime Minister was absent, as he was still in at tendance at the Cabinet conference. Mr J, W. Guliand, Junior Lord of the Treasury, on behalf of Mir Asquith, promised that the Prime Minister would deliver his state ment in reaerd to the Army Coun oil resignations late in the afternoon. Mr Bonar Law, leader of the Opposi tion, said that Mr Asquith had pro mised to make a statement l.st night. It was then deferred until noon to-day, and now it rwa further postponed. He (Mr Bonar Lw) wished to move the adjournment oi the House in order to enable the mem bers of Cabinet to make up their minds. The Speaker ruled that inasmuch as Friday was private members' day, the House was un able...
WRITERS AND WRITINGS. LITERARY NOTES AND VERSES. THE ESSAYS OF HUNT. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 30 March 1914
WRITERS AND WRITINGS. LITERARY NOTES AND VERSES. THE ESSAYS OF HUNT. The word " pleasant" seems (says Arthur Symons) to have a peculiar appropriateness to Leigh Hunt. He is the " pleasantest" writer we have; to him belongs that "sweet tem perature of -thought" which Landor observed in Addison, and that " attractive countenance with which he meets us upon every occasion." I cannot think that Leigh Hunt was of the build and stature to " wrestle with and conquer Time;" his flight was the swallow's-short, uneven, uncertain. But he is specially eminent among the lesser men, and to neglect him is to lose a pleasure which we can get only from him. A couple of selections from Hunt's "Dreams on the borders of the land of Poetry" are given below : BEAUTY. They say that I speak too highly of what I admire ; and that half the beauties which I discern in any object I put there myself. -Believe them not. Nature has been there before us. We only read what she has written. If others cannot read as ...
FAIRIES' RECALL. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 30 March 1914
FAIRIES' RECALL. While the blue is richest In the starry sky, While the softest shadows On the greensward lie, While the moonlight slumbers In the lily's urn, Bright elves of the wild-wood 1 Oh ! return, return 1 Round the forest fountain, On the river shore, Let your silvery laughter Echo yet once more; While the joyous bounding Of your dewy feet Rings to that old chorus: "The daisy is so sweetl " Oberon, Titania, Did your starlight mirth With the song of Avon Quit this work-day earth ? Yet while green leaves glisten, And while bright stars burn, By that magic memory, Oh, return, return ! -Felicia Hemans.
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 30 March 1914
Two recent utterances of prominent publicists in the old land have es pecial significance for Australia. Each directs a studied attention to the future of the nations whose shores are washed by the Pacific; and while the one treats of war, the other deals with commerce, both having direct relation to national security and the supremacy of the white peoples of the Pacific. Mr. Winston Churchill, after describing the naval policy as " heroic," pointed out that, in the event of the Im perial navy being shattered at the heart of the empire in the North Sea, no naval preparations or battle ship building of the Pacific Dominions could save them from the territorial aggressor. And hence, said he, in such a dire disaster, the Australian Commonwealth could look only to the United States for its security. The other utterance is co-related, and follows almost neces sarily upon Mr. Churchill's admoni tion. " In the future," says Mr Page Croft, " no international rela "tion for defence or offenc...
AUTUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 30 March 1914
AUTUMN. With what a glory comes and goes the year! The buds of spring, those beautiful har bingers Of sunny skies and cloudless times, enjoy Life's newness, and earth's garniture spread out. And when the silvery habit of the clouds Comes down upon the autumn sun,.and with A sober gladness the old year takes up His bright inheritance of golden fruits, A pomp and pageant fill the splendid scene. There is a beautiful spirit breathing now Its mellow richness on the clustered trees, And, from a beaker full of richest dyes, Pouring new glory on the autumn w6ods, And dipping in warm light the pillared clouds. Morn on the mountain, like a summer bird, Lifts up her purple wing, and in the vales The gentle wind, a sweet and passionate wooer, Kisses the blushing leaf, and stirs up life Within the solemn woods of ash deep crimsoned, And silver beech, and maple yellow leaved, Where Autumn, like a faint old man, sits down By the wayside aweary. Through the trees The golden robin moves. The purple...
