VOLUNTARY INSURANCE GAIN TO FRIENDLY SOCIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 February 1914

VOLUNTARY INSURANCE GAIN TO FRIENDLY SOCIETIES. If Lhe compulsory Insurance Act had no. other defects, the multiplicity of cooks would probably spoil the insur ance broth. The officials of friendly societies who have for years past car ried on their quiet but magnificent work have now to be in constant touch with a number of committees, referees, audi tors, and inspectors, while the Insur ance Commissioners are always hover ing in the background armed with a spoonful of new regulations, special or ders or provisional special orders, to stir into the refreshing decoction. _ This multiplication of authorities is not only costly to an absurd degree, but it will restrict the free development of the mutual benefit societies to a very serious extent. No movements in his tory have been more spontaneous, more true to national tradition, and less ham pered by official interference than the friendly society and trade union move ments in this country. They were in spired by the foresight, the ...

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 February 1914

Are So Pleasant To Take.—"I was inclined to be constipated and was always compelled to take a laxative," writes Mr Hugh McNaughton, Lubeck, Vic. "Chamberlain's Tablets were re commended to me, and a few doses re lieved me of this troublesome complaint. I think so highly of them that now I take an occasional dose, which helps to keep me in good health." Sold by all storekeepers and chemist?,* Mark Twain says : " When I was editing the "Virginia City Enterprise," writing copy one day and mining the next, a superstitious subscriber once wrote and said he had found a spider in his paper. Was this good or bad luck ? I replied to him in onr ' Answers to Correspondents' column as follows : ' Old Subscriber.—The finding of a spider in your copy of the ' Enterprise' was neither good luck nor bad. The spider was merely looking over our pages to find out what merchant was not advertising, so that it could spin its web across his door, and lead a free and undisturbed existence for ever after.''...

POOR GENTILITY [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 February 1914

POOR GENTILITY The "Daily Telegraph" published a short communication from a corres pondent, stating that his daughter found difficulty in arranging for a suffi cient supply to a business firm of knit ting and crochet work done at home. It received close on 300 letters ask ing for employment or for further in formation, and many more were de livered in the course of the day. These letters came from all parts o£ England. London was , of course, largely represented, but the great North and West of England towns, many of our best-known watering places and quiet villages in many counties sent a substantial contingent. Hundreds of witnesses have here filed their evidence of eagerness to grasp at a possible addition of a few shillings a week to their incomes. Few show traces of the "pin-money" spirit; many, on the other hand, have clearly a fight to make both ends meet. Who are these women? Their writing and notepaper give an unmistakable and pathetic answer. By far the greatest number, so...

LICENSING BILL DEMANDED TEMPERANCE PARTY'S MANIFESTO. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 February 1914

LICENSING BILL DEMANDED TEMPERANCE) PARTY'S MANI FESTO. A licensing reform Bill for England and Wales is urgently demanded by the United Kingdom Alliance,. and in furtherance of that demand a mani festo was issued from headquarters by the president, Mr Leif Jones, M.P., according to "The Daily News." The document impresses upon all who sym pathise with the cause of temperance the vital importance of straightway using every scrap of influence they possess to bring home to Parliament and to the Government the intensity of the demand for reform legislation. 7'There is danger," proceeds the mani festo, "lest because we have been pa tient we should be supposed to be in different as to when the Government will proceed to fulfil the reiterated pledges upon this question. Nothing could be further from the truth. We j have been patient only because we have relied upon pledges too explicit to be misunderstood or to be broken.

CONCERT AT HILL END. (Communicated). A concert and dance, in aid oE the Sale Hospital, was held in the hall on Friday, 30th ult. This function was arranged by the ladies of the Liberal League, but residents have to thank Mrs David Lobb and her sister (Miss A. Dungan) for the success of the evening. Miss Dungan, who is on a visit to the district in the hope that the change will prove beneficial from a health stand point, most generously offered her services, and, being the teacher oE a kindergarten school in Tasmania, she trained the children splendidly for a number of items. Much credit is due to her, also Mrs D. L'>bb, for their efforts. The concert as a whole was most enjoyable, and never before did such a large gathering assemble at the hall. Mr H. Robins performed the duties of chairman. The following pro gramme was gone through, Mrs D. Lobb officiating as accompanist:— Opening selection (phonograph), Master C.

MELBOURNE PIG MARKET. Messrs McPhail Bros, and Co. re port under date of 11th and 12th inst: — Stores.—The supply of this class of pig was very limited, and feed ers had to compete for porkers for topping into baconers.

Bacon.—The major portion of this week's supply consisted of baconers, with the quality hardly as good right through as last week, yet prices for good stuff were as high as formerly, while light and nondescript quality was slacker. Prime made 68s to 75s; extra prime, 78s to 83s, with odd lots up to as high as 90s, which price we obtained for'Messrs A. Cantwell and G. Hamilton, from Meeniyan and Dumbalk; our next best price, 89s 6d, for several lots, including six from W. Babbington, Stacey's Bridge, Alberton. Prime medium we...

POLICE SAMARITANS "I think it is right that the public .should know they have men like'this in their police force," said Captain Jacobsen, a Scandinavian, in telling the "Daily News" on November. 14 . of an act of humanity by a sergeant rof the city police. Captain Jacobsen has charge of a Scandinavian shipping bureau hi Feii church street. This little affair, he went on, has so touched me that, whether the sergeant' likes it or not, I am going to tell it. Ilecently this police officer came to me and said he had found in a city street at night an elderly seaman, stranded and destitute. The man was a Dane. The sergeant kindly said he did not want to lock the fellow up. The man was a seaman all right, and locking him up, said the sergeant, would do him no good. The police man had been feeding the man, and had fixed him up in a lodging-house. Captain Jacobsen explained that of course" he got.- numbers of such cases, and had-1 to bt'1 careful.

EDUCATION IN THE BACK COUNTRY. SPEECH BY MR. E. BEAL. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 February 1914

EDUCATION IN THE BACK COUNTRY. SPEECH BY MR. E. BEAL. (From Our Duggan Correspondent). After the interval for refreshments, ! at a social evening held at Duggan on Friday, 6th inst., Mr E. B'eal (on behalf of the School Committee) extended a cordial welcome to Miss Phillips, the new teacher. He spoke in eulogistic 'terms of their late teacher (Mr C. J. Rosb). The most cordial relations, he said, bad existed between he (Mr Ross) and the committee. Taking everything into consideration, it was wonderful the progress made byj the children during his term. He won the children's respect 3nd drew out their best effort without exercising tyranny of any kind. Remembering his own school days, it appeared almost incredible to say that the worst form of parental chastisement you could inflict on a child was to keep him home from school; yet such had been the case during their late teach er's regime. Although Mr Ross was not present to accept their thanks, he was pleased to publicly state the he...

MAGAZINE MOTOR CAR VAGARIES OF WRITERS [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 February 1914

• f — MAGAZINE MOTOR CAR : VAGARIES OF WRITERS One of the most remarkable pro ducts of the twentieth century is that triujnph of mechanical engineering, the Magazine motorcar. It has been "remarked that the gentlemen who write the glowing advertisements of "Houses to Let" have obviously never lived in them." ! . It is equally obvious (says "Motor News") that the worthy folk who write, in the popular magazines, hair curling short stories about motorcars have never driven in them. It was, of course, inevitable that with the rapid advance of the motorcar in popular favor there should be a cor responding advance in the popular imagination on the subject. In this case the proverb must be reversed, for assuredly the short story-tellers •make fiction stranger than truth. Thei'e are several different models of the magazine motorcars, but, so far as essentials are concerned, the specification is common to all. It fre quently has eight cylinders; seldom fewer than six. It has a gigantic body,...

PRIZE ESSAYS TEN GREATEST INVENTIONS. The "Scientific American" offered prizes for the three best essays on the 10 greatest patentable inventions of the past 25 years. No two competitors selected the same inventions. In fact, only one invention, that of wireless tele graphy, was. conceded unanimously to belong to the group of the 10 greatest. The vote on aeroplanes was almost unanimous. But beyond that there was no unanimity. The conditions: of the contest stated that greatness would be measured in terms of practical success and general usefulness to mankind; the competi tors were limited to machines, de vices and discoveries commercially in troduced in the last 25 years, :and special emphasis was laid on the fact that the inventions must be pat JS CU.U-.. entable, although not necessarily patented.

CUPS OF COFFEE VALUE AS STIMULANT [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 25 February 1914

CUPS OF COFFEE "VATjUIS AS STIMUL.ANT In a recent issue of the "Lancet" it is pointed out that hitherto such analyses of coffee as have from time to time1 been made and published have referred to an examination of the entire coffee berry, and not to the infusion as it reaches the con sumer. The results are now set forth of an- investigation into tlie. composition of the infusion to be drunk, the chemistry of the "grounds" having been left out of consideration. In drawing a comparison between coffee and tea the results show" that while the alkaloid caffeine in coffee is identical with that in tea, yet its as-: sociations in coffee ' are different. In tea infusions the alkaloid occurs chiefly as a tannate, which is 'a com pound insoluble in the acid juices of the stomach. ; . • In coffee it occurs in an . easily soluble compound. Here would ap pear to' he the explanation of the prompt action of coffee as a restora tive and stimulant, particularly, when employed as an antidote . to nar...

I: AUSTRALIA'S EXAMPLE I. . FIELD OF EDUCATION.

Bishop Frodsham appeals, not for the first time, for the ending of the religious difliculty. This he does in the sacred names of liberty and religion. Need I say that I am heartily with him in his desire, though I pause to examine his methods? Bishop Frodsham irankly confesses that the difficulties we deplore have been largely due to the narrowness of Anglican school managers, but_ he. sug gests that, the -situation has been ag gravated by a similar spirit of narrow , ness in the Council schools. In that a just, comparison? In the Anglican schools only Anglicans are appointed, as teachers, although their salaries are paid by the public. In the Council schools Anglican tea chers have equal...
