STRAWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 14 July 1910

? ♦ ? I STRAWS. A writer on ' World Travel ' (Mr. Geo. Gascoyne) says, in an article in ' The National Review': ' China ha.s not the charm of either Egypt or the variety of India, but it is more interesting than either because of its probable importance in the future balance of world power and future civilisation. The trans-Siberian railway trains are splendidly equipped, with fine oathroom, good food, admirable sleeping berths, and a comfortable lounged ... My experience is that the Russian authorities do everything in their power to save the traveller annoyance, ajid that they are^partieularly ^courteous to Eng lishmen.' In the end of this article, the writer touches on Austral'a. He says: 'The climate in spring and autumn is delight ful, and the warmth of an Australian wel come is worth crossing the world to ex perience. The people are as sunny as their skies, arid.it has often struck me in Aus tralian cities that one rarely sees an un happy face. The hotels m' Australia are, wit...

THE TREE AND THE MIND. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 14 July 1910

? ' V ' ' THE TREE AND THE MIND. V An expert from the fruit-growing branch of the. Danish Department of Agri-, culture, recently visiting - England, stated that it was a common thing in the small holdings of .his country to see a single, fruit tree— apple, pear, or cherry— stand- ing alone and at some hundred yards dis-. tance from other trees of a like kind. Thepe trees are frequently barren of fruit. He 'attributed their sterility to the fact that no other trees were near to allow of sufficient cross fertilisation. Reading this, I remembered several: cases similar. In my grandfather's or-; chard grew a beautiful apple tree. It was. big enough for us to have' a swing' fixed to one of the branches. It was, the only apple 'tree in the garden, and was; kept as a summer shade, as- year after year it produced, for all- its size, only -half-a-dozen apples. Suddenly it became fruitful— just ; covered with apples. We never knew why. ' -But I do recollect that the year it bore avoung apple ...

ANTI-SOCIALISM AND WOMEN. Svus the ' Australasian ' (July 2, 1910) : ^'Judging by reports from New Zealand ?lately, people in that country are begin ning to regard the domestic help diffi culty from a graver point of view. . . . The present agitation that the Govern *ment shall revive free immigration for ?girls to undertake domestic s'ervice is Ik backed up by an appeal on national ^grounds.' This is the prologue. Now ? women — and men, too — mark the follow ?ing: — 'Mothers of the poorer classes, it ?is urged (by doctors and others), are suffering greatly in health through the ::overstraln of combining household drud ;gery with the upbringing of children. The stamina of their future offspring must be ampaired in consequence, and the birth rate of the country would probably be .lowered from the t.ame cause. ; . .

VICTORIA'S GREAT CHANCE. DEVELOPING THE POWLETT STATE COALFIELD. OPERATIONS TO BE RESTRICTED?—PUBLIC SHOULD DEMAND THE RIGHT TO BUY COAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 14 July 1910

The pity is that t Government which began ^so well is I„t now in active sympathy with a policy that will develop to the fullest the po tentialities of this great treasure trove. Something very tangible has been done S nf nrimary developmental work, although it has to be remembered that that was in a sense feverishly hast Lnp(j bv reason of the industrial fight at Newcastle. The Victorian Government, with its queer backing of mixed political Lporters, could not be accused of any nfatuation for State Enterprise and it iras hardly likely to take on a big pro |«t of its own volition.

MR. M'BRIDE AND CABINET. HEWING RATES FIXED. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 14 July 1910

MR. M'BRIDE AND CABINET. HEWING RATES FIXED. The feeling in favor of the Government being compelled to sell coal to the public at a reasonable price continues to grow. Mr. McBride on Saturday stated that he was willing to so sell, but it was a matter requiring Cabinet endorsement, and .h'e^ announced that Premier Murray would make a statement in Parliament as to the intentions of the Ministry. This should have been done long ago. The people are entitled to a straight answer instead of (Continued on Page 6.) VICTORIA'S GREAT CHANGE. (Continued from Page 9.) the shameful silence that has existed in the past on the matter. The general manager of the State Coal Mine, Mr. G- H. Broome has fixed the fol lowing scale of prices which he considers 'fair and equitable': — 1. Hewing Rate — Shovel filled, 2/9 per ton; 3d. per ton extra for three shifts. 2.

FALSE ECONOMY. It is always false economy to buy, or use, anything- of inferior quality. From, boots to advice, it pays to get the best. For thirty years we have been doing- all we could to impress this truth upon the public mind. Many people, when they are Buffering from common ills, such as rheu matism, gout, indigestion, biliousness, neuralgia, lumbago, sick-headache, gene ral debility, backache, sciatica, anaemia, ? lolood disorders, gravel, stone and bladder troubles, try first one medicament and then another, without avail; but, at last, have to resort for relief to the long-tried and proved remedy, Warner's Safe Cure. The reason is that Warner's Safe Cure acts directly upon the kidneys and liver, and enables those organs efficiently to do their work of removing from the system the waste uric and biliary poisons, the re tention of which causes us to suffer from the complaints named. Get the best! Get Warner's Safe Cure, and be relieved! if you write to us we shall be pleased t...

"WILD RA-AB-ITS! FINE RAB-BITS!" What Sydney is Left. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 14 July 1910

? * ? 'WILD RA-AB- ITS! FINE RAB-BITS!' What Sydney is Left. Speaking at a Labor meeting at Mar-, rickville last week, Mr. W. A. Holman, M.L.A., let a ? little light into the possi bilities of Sydney's food supply, despite the existence of the Pure Foods Act. From a most authentic source, Mr. Holman said, he had heard that when consignments of rabbits for export arrived at Sydney, in spectors of the Board of Exports 'went through each lot, arid picked out those which were free from blemish and sound in every way. They labelled them ' first class.' Then those^ which were bruised a little, or had been damaged in any way in transit, or were a little 'high,' were sorted out, and were also exported with the brand of 'second- class' on them. Goodness knows what they are . like when they get to their journey's . end, or what class of people eat them. But, after the first and second class rabbits had been sorted out, the duty of the inspector of the Board of Exports ended, and the re mainde...

LIONS AND WOLVES AT MURRURUNDI. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 14 July 1910

LIONS AND WOLVES AT MURRURUNDI. Murrurundi was, for a brief spell last 'vv.eek, In passing need of Teddy- Roosevelt and his son Kermit. Infested with wolves and lions, the northern township would have afforded rare sport for a hunter of big game. Wirth's circus was the cause of the excitement, one lion, two lionesses, and two wolves making a temporary suc cessful bolt from its ' menagerie. The wolves were soon cornered -by the circus people, and a lioness, stopping plaj'fully to claw a circus pony, had little greater spell of liberty. The lion, with something of the tastes of Jack Johnson, was captured whilst investigating a hen-roost, but the remaining lioness was free for nearly two hours, and after sampling a horse or two sat down to study the scenery, and having taken a look at the place was easily in duced to re-enter her cage.
