THE CONQUERING HOBBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 9 October 1914

THE CONQUERING HOBBLE. When first I saw a hobble skirt, ' it gave me quite a shock! My eyes it positively liurt To see that sort of frock! The reason may have been because It seemed a tr;.fle naughty— * The dame who dared to wear it was Both fat and fair—and forty! When next I saw the hobble, it Seemed good to look upon, But struck me Still as scarcely fit For her who had it on; The wearer looked like, I declare, An elongated ball, For she, although divinely fair, Was not divinely tall! But now that slender English maids The style have made their own, They've made upon my heart such raids , • As ne'er before I've known! Their'suppleness and grace, which they With care concealed of yore, Thanks to the hobble, they display As ne'er was done before! Therefore I sing the hobble's praise, I 'Twas sent for mail's delight! My pleasure 'tis to stand and gaze Whene'er one heaves in sight; But only when I am alone, For when my wife is near . (She turns the scale at sixteen stone) I say: "How ...

LIGHTNING CALCULATORS. Mathematical Marvels. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 9 October 1914

I LIGHTNING CALCULATORS. I " Mathematical Marvels. There is at the present time study ing at Cambridge one of the most won derful mathematicians the world has ever seen—a young Hindoo, Mr. S. Ramanujan by name—whose work; al though he is only twenty-six years of age, has excited the admiration of all mathematical experts. Perhaps the most extraordinary thing about Ram anujan is that, as a mathematician, he is quite untaught. Until a year ago - he was a clerk in the employment of the Port Trust o£ Madras. But in spite of this, he has, to quote Mr. Hardy, Fellow of Trinity, who has taken a great interest in Ramanujan, "discovered for himself a great num ber of things which the leading mathe maticians of the last hundred years had added to the knowledge of school men, although he was ignorant of their work and accomplishments. Indeed, his mathematical education is rather a mystery, and the first I knew of him i was about fifteen months ago, when he \ wrote to me explaining who he was, ...

MAXIMS FOR BUSINESS MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 9 October 1914

MAXIMS FOR BUSINESS MEN. One constantly hears the expression that So-and-so failed in his business be cause 'he .bit off more than he could chew"; in other words, took on a big ger job than he could manage. In the opinion, however, of Mr. Herbert Cas son, who has been speaking on behalf of the convention of business men which was held at Toronto at the end of last month, an excellent maxim for the business man to bear in mind is —"Bite off more than you can chew— and chew it." Among other maxims which he ga,ve ! are the following:— | System is not everything. You can go to the bad systematically. An advertising man is a saver built like a spender, just as an oyster is a fish built like a nut. The right place to cut prices is in the factory. The man who cuts prices in the shop does so because he has not the brains to sell his goods. The development of the motor in dustry is due to the skill of the sales men, who were selling c^rs for seven years before the manufacturers knew how to m...

"DOWN WITH WAR." GERMAN SOCIALISTS' APPEAL FOR PEACE. WERE THE PARTY LEADERS BRIBED? [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 9 October 1914

" DOWN WITH WAR." ( GERMAN SOCIALISTS' APPEAL FOR PEACE. WERE THE PARTY LEADERS BRIBED? Surrounded by soldiers and living all his life in tlie military, atmosphere of Berlin, the Kaiser -Wilhelm was for years regarded as the menace of peace in Europe. Highly placed Eng lish and French diplomatists can tell how exceedingly difficult it was to keep the curb on the crack brained monarch at times when the war mania lias seized him and he has be come possessed of nothing but his own ambitions and imagination. With the military clique urging him on he would have plunged Europe into the present hell-lire years ago but one thing restrained him and his advisers. There has uprisen in Germany a po litical party which lias gained im mense popularity with the masses, who have at the risk—and often-times they have suffered the penalty—of dis pleasing the Kaiser, preached their own gospel, and who have attained a power that not even the Kaiser could easily despise. This was the well-or ganised soc...

WHEN WAR BEGAN. POSITION IN THE EMPIRE CAPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 9 October 1914

WHEN WAR BEGAN. j POSITION IN THE EMPIRE CAPITAL. In a very full budget the special re presentative in London of tlie Sydney "Sun" gives an interesting narrative of events • and incidents in the Empire capital on the declaration of war. King George's Sagacity. • From first to last the King never appeared until his signature had to be affixed to proclamations, or until his subjects begged a glimpse of him on the balcony at the Palace. Until the full history of those last over wrought days are written, the people as a whole will never know how much . they owe to the sagacity, the steadi ness, and the energies of their Sove reign. Frail though he may sometimes look in physique, King George is as tough as the toughest hickory. For four days on end he could not have had more than an hour's fitful sleep. His Ministers motored across from Downing-street at all hours of the day and night. Three mornings in suc cession the Prime Minister was clo seted with the King at 3 a.m. Mr. Asquit.li, i...

Barrett (Trafalgar) and N. -f. Roger (Yar ragon.) The game was for 500 up. Contrary to expectations, the atten dance was very small, only I4s. being taken at the door. Barrett was in fine form and won easily, Roger not seeming to get in tonch. His best break was 31' Barrett's best was a nicely compiled 63. Mr G.

WIRELESS TELEPHONES. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 9 October 1914

WIRELESS TELEPHONES. That the next few years will see some remarkable developments in wireless telegraphy is forecasted by the surprising experiments which have just 'been successfully carried out. Mr. Marconi hopes to establish shortly a.wireless telephone between his office in the Strand and his country house at Fawley, Hampshire, sixty-seven miles away. "Already," he says, "we have had c nversations with Berlin. We could not hear all the words, but the test was very promising, seeing that we were talking over 600 miles. And recently we had wireless telephone communication between warships forty miles apart which was entirely satisfactory." Even more astonishing, however, is the wireless telephone apparatus invented by two French naval offi cers, Commander Colin and Lieuten ant Jeance, by which conversations were easily carried on recently over a distance of 150 miles. Every tone and inflection of the speaker's voice was preserved, as if he had been in the same room. Five years ag...

Trafalgar Mechanics' Institute. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 9 October 1914

Trafalgar Mechanics' Institute. Very little interest appears to be evinced by the public in the propos al! improvements to the local hall. At the members meeting convened for Thursday evening last, thero was the very moderate attendance of one, independent of members of the Com mittee, Apparently members im pose great confidence in the Com mittee and their proposals, other wise the ' opportunity would havp been seized to offer friendly critic ism. "Fair Play, Wayback" and such-like celebrities of doubtful im portance, would be hurtling around more fury and devastation in one is sue than the Kaiser and his troops could accomplish in a month. The revised plans bring the estimated coBt of the improvements to over £700, The Committee are not in clined to undertake this expense just at present and the whole question may be held in abeyance for another twelve months. Perhaps by that time the->enthusiasm that possessed one individual to attend, piay have caught on and the existing spiri...

Homeless. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 9 October 1914

Homeless. Most single men are homeless, and Less happy than they could be; Most married men, we understand, Are home less than they should be. No good can come from a policy of hiding the truth. Be sure your sins will find you out; but there is no need to have sins. If you begin by hiding small things you will develop coward ice and dishonesty in almost every thing you do.

AVIATOR'S AWFUL PLIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 9 October 1914

V AVIATOR'S AWFUL PLIGHT. No aviator has ever had so thrilling an experience as has just been the lot of Mr. Knox Morton, a young amateur, at Long Island, New York. He fell 1,000ft. in a series of perilous dives and lurches, and yet succeeded in landing, or rather was lucky enough to land, without more than a comparatively slight shaking, and was able to walk to his hotel. He was up in a biplane when the steering wire jammed and then snap-1 ped. The machine at once tilted and fell sideways for about 100 feet. The spectators had given up all hope, and were watching, transfixed with horror. Suddenly the machine rode into a cur rent of wind and righted itself for a few seconds. It then began circling around, quite uncontrollable, and after a fall of an other 100ft. once more steadied itself. For a minute the aeroplane was even, but a third time it began to fall at a perilous angle. When within quite a short distance of the ground the machine once again righted itself and bumped down in...

PEOPLES' PARTY. A meeting of Delegates from var ; ious district branches of the Peoples Party, was held in Trafalgar on Mon day last. Narracan, Trafalgar, Moe, Yarragon and other towns where branches exist, were represented. The prospects of the Liberal party in the forthcoming State elections were discussed at length and steps were taken to organise immediately. Several speakers urged the necessity for combined effort, otherwise there was a possibility of the Labor party capturing the seat. With a second candidate in the field the danger was intensified, It was unanimously de cided to actively support Mr Barnes. No time will be lost in beginning the campaign.
