THE MAIL SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 15 August 1914
THE MAIL SERVICE. ----+----- The question of Australia's mail lervice is one that is constantly arls ing, and the amount of space and la hour reqluired to convey the weekly mail from the United Kingdon to th? Commonwealth, and vice versa, ic constantly and rapidly increasing, Ten years ago, fifty tons cubic measurement was considered ample space to convey the weekly budget, and now ten times that amount is hardly sufficient, while at the present rate of increase it is believed that further increase will soon be found necessary, The companiesl express great dis satisfaction at the absence of any cx panslon of the grants, while they em phaelse the fact that the expenses are increasing with the growth of hulk, that the Suez Oanal dues lay an ap. preciable weight on the companies' shoulders, and that the terms are made more onerous with every fresh contract. During the sittings of the Dominions Commission in London, Sir Rider laggard recently suggested that a quloker route might in the ...

FOREST PROTECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 15 August 1914
FOREST PROTECTION. The ruthless destruction of valuable. timber in which the early pioneers indulged, perhaps has its excuse in the fact that quickly cleared land wamr indiepensible for their requirements, while the absence of an extensive local market prevented any fore. thought in the directions of pianti?g seedlings to supply the demands of futnra generations. Now-a-days any such excuse is impcaeible ;-for even in our young land we are unfortun-' ately beginning to visualise the Ne mises which attends the reckless des truction of growing things, Olimate, and the all-important rain fall average has been completely ro volutlonised, times without number, in the old world, by the wholesale slaughter of innocent trees; while in Australia much of the herbage in the pastoral districts has been handled unnecessarily cruelly in this respect, S'Surely-though too slowly-Austra lia is beginning to realise the dan gert which' await a tree famine; and In consequence the study of afforesta tion...

A Cheltenham Resident in another State. Mr Thomas Benussi. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 15 August 1914
A Gheltenham Resident in another State. Mr Tmhomas Benussl, The following is a olipping from a Queensland Paper, and as will be sei~n deals with the success of a form. er CheltPenllam resident, who is at presant living in that St~ate. Mr. B3enussl was the first individual to start running a cab at Cheltenham station nine'eom ye'rs ago, He is wellkiown t the older residents and was recognised ever in those early stages of his career as a smart entorprising maun, Ihe married Miss Woff, sister of Robert, William and Georgo Woff, but subsequentty lrs Benussi died and the husband then left for South Africa, but latterly settled in Queensland and has there nwt with the success he undoubtedly deserves. "A native of Ballarat, Victoria, a man who has beenu engaged in mining operations for the greater portion of his life, a fruit grower for three years only." Such is a sketch in brief of the life of Mr T'. Beunaussi, whose splendid farm at Victoria Point is an eloquent object lesson in what m...
TROPICAL DISEASES RESEARCH WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 15 August 1914
TRQPICAL DISEASES RE. SEARCH WORK. -+-------- ThQ extreme isolatlon and the hot climato of Northern and Central Aus t'ralla tend to make that portion of the Commonwealth peculiarly liable to attack by tropical and sub-tropli cal diseases, Until quite lately medl cal research in these districts has bIeen unknown. Many old and some new diseases have lifted tholr ominous heads and flourlshed, with very little challenge from science or humanity, That dread scourge, enteric fever, has claimed more than lti fair share of the young blood of the country; while malarial fever, ague, andt many more ills of the flnesh pursued their way unmolested, In addition to these home enemies, the daily increasing communication with many Eastern ports, opens yet another door of at tack, and when'unknown and subtle germs insinuate their entrance into Australia the medical fraternity will have yet another problem to tackle. This .danger has been realisrd by Australians, and the necessity for ac curate medic...

AUSTRALIA—A SEA-NATION. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 15 August 1914
AUSTRALIA-A SEA.NATION. A~istralians are inclined to look up on themselves as a nation of land lubbers, and to regard the infant navy rather in the light of an experi ment on the embryo sea-prowess of the inhabitants, As usual, it is th5 onlooker who sees most of the game, and the incoming visitor is invariably impressed by the number, size and variety of craft which Australian harbours are called upon to accom modate, The wharfs are filled with large ocean-go:ng liners, and the visitor is impressed with the man/ vessels pre sumably, in coirnmunication with the Old World, The Englishman's idea of a coastal steamer ,is a small ves sel of 500 to 1500 tons, in. which he despairs of finding even comparative comfort or space, and so resigns him. self to a period of forced inactivity and misery combined. His first awakening comes when he learns, that the palatial steamers which he credited with, a roundsthe. world run are in reality Australia's coastal fleet. These 10,000, 8,000,and 6,000...
POULTRY NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 15 August 1914
POULTRY NOTES (By LEGHORN) Of late more attention has been paid to the hen than the waterfowl, Consequently there has been, and is now, a great scarcity of good, edible poultry, The oraze for egg produc tion has inoreased enormously, and it would appear likely to continue, as the prices keep up, and the demand increases, for that delicacy which the egg affords, It is now a recog nised fact that the great number of poultry breeders have set their minds to improve the laying qualities of their birds; this to-day we see almost everywhere a flook of White Leg horns, apparently few regarding the table fowl or duck with favour, Some years ago there was, in Victoria, much thought and writing about duok growing for profit, and ,nany embarked in the business, attracted by-stories-of great-profit.Re well-as that the profits were realised much more quicklythan with hens; also that much larger stooks of duos could be held on smaller holdings, But, unfortunately for the duck breeders, the increa...

Great Chinese Statesman. -+ CONFESSIONS 01O LI HUNG GHANG. Some curious sidelights on Court lifo in China and other countries, and the workings of a great states man's mind, are allorded by the diaries of that greatest of modern Chinamon, Li Hung Chang, pub. lshed in the London "Obseorver." Li Hfung Chang was a great diarist, and zealously recorded his views, Impressilons, and actions day after dlay, HIls stories of his relations with. that remarkable old woman, the powagor Empress df China, are \vry amusing, On one occasion, apparently, he offended the despolic Sovereign by his praise of the Czar 'n after a visit to Russian, Ie Iescrlibos the seqiuol as follows : "I have receiolved notification that I am to forfeit one year's pay for a breach of coronmopy at the palace.

St, John's Am~bulance Association. The central committee of the above organisation have taken very activesteps to organise locally all those volunteers who are prepared to a~sist in forming men's brigades, and women's nursing divisions in connection with the war. They have made representations to the minister of defence offering to that depart. ment the whole of their ambulance organisation. This means a tremen dously lavge offer, as they have been the means of educating some twenty nine thousand people in the State of Victoria on the principals of "First aid in the injured" and "Nuraing," The work done by this organisation is very similar to the Red Cross Societies of other countries, and there is no reason why Moorabbin should not be represented fully amongst its list of members, It is anticipated that meetings throaghout the shire shall be called within a few days, but at the present moment definite steps have not been fixed.
