VIGOROUS AT SIXTY. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919
VIGOROUS AT SIXTY. "The greater vitality a man possesses, the keener bis intellect." , So said Dr. Ricord, who made "Vitality" his life- long study. No living man has attain- &nbsp; ed the celebrity of Dr. Ricord, who was Physician to Napoleon 3rd and Comman- der of the Legion of Honor, and was also a "Grand Officer." Dr. Ricord's &nbsp; book will interest men who are growing old, and it is sent free on receipt of two stamps for postage if you mention this paper. Perry and Co., P.O. Box 17, Stock Exchange, Melbourne.* That Tasmanian conditions lend themselves to the production of a sat- isfactory article is exemplified by the superiority of I.X.L. over other. brands of Jams and Preserves.*

TERMS OF PEACE [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919
TERMS OF PEACE All the world is profoundly interest- ed in the peace terms, because, direct- ly or indirectly, all the world is con- cerned. The peace terms will be a big contribution to an attempt at rectify- ing what is wrong in the existing con- stitution of the world. Much evil will, it is hoped, be cut out of the consti- tution, and much more justice and lib- erty incorporated in it. Therefore, it is easy to understand that the sugges- tions of a committee of patriotic so- cieties in the United States have ex- cited great interest in that country. They are interesting here and every- where. For they represent the mind of amateur statesmanship-of men who approached their subject without bias -Of intelligent citizenship. They are an honest jury verdict. And what &nbsp; &nbsp; they amount to is that justice must be done and liberty honored, and, as both the originators and losers of the war, the Central Powers must pay to the limit of their capacity. The sug- gesti...

UP TO THE LIMIT ALREADY [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919
UP TO THE LIMIT ALREADY Old Hayseed hadn't paid for the two &nbsp; windmills he ordered months before, and the firm began to hint that the sight of his cheque might relieve the accountant's astigmatism. Hayseed ignored the letters, which became less courteous as time went on. At last there came a snorter, in which Henry Hayseed was thereby in- formed that unless the amount owing was paid within 14 days legal proceed- ings would be taken. The firm regret- ted having to write in this way. In- deed, the manager assured Hayseed that it would pain him to put him to all the expense and trouble of litiga- tion, but no other course seemed pos- sible. Hayseed replied the night he re- ceived the letter. No paper in the world would print the whole of what he wrote, but here is part of it (with necessary amendments) :- So you wouldn't like to give me trouble over a law case. Well, I haven't got your crimson windmills. The flood came and washed them away. And it took the vieux-rose cows ...

BRITAIN'S 10,000,000 TOTAL WAR EFFORT. 6,500,000 TAROOPS. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919
BRITAIN'S 100,000,000 &nbsp; &nbsp; TOTAL WAR EFFORT. LONDON, Thursday .-The British Army, Navy and Air Force on the date of the armistice numbered 6,500,000, though Britain's total war effort was over 100,000,000. Thus far ???,000 troops have been demobilised. 15.000 prisoners repatri- ated, and 10,000 munition workers &nbsp; released. The railways and shipping &nbsp; &nbsp; facilities in France and England made it impossible to increase the rate of demobilisation. When all the prison- &nbsp; ers are repatriated the speed of demob- ilisation will be increased.
AUSTRALIA ANSWERS (Written by Ella Wheeler Wilcox, for the Soldiers' Function at Australia House.) [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919
AUSTRALIA ANSWERS (Written by Ella Wheeler Wilcox, for the Soldiers' Function at &nbsp; Australia House.) How did you answer England's cry, when it fell upon your ear? With four hundred thousand fighting men, each one a volunteer! &nbsp; And where did you come to England's aid, when she called you over the sea? We came to her at the ANZAC Cove-we came at Gallipoli. We came in the dawn of an April day that was sweet with the young Spring's breath, And the hounds of Hell were waiting us there, with a devil's trap of death. And what did you do to foil the foe, when you reached that steep cliff path? Go ask the Cyclone to tell you the way it tears through the earth in wrath! Go ask the Lightning to tell you tale of its felling a forest tree, Or the terrible story of tidal waves, as they rush inland from the sea! For that is the way we swept up over the Turks at Gallipoli! And our dead we left in the devil's trap, and our dead we left on the hill "We know are alive on the...
WHARF LABORERS DESERT SARDINIA. COMPLAIN OF FILTH IN HOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919
WHARF LABORERS DESERT &nbsp; SARDINIA. &nbsp; COMPLAIN OF FILTH IN HOLD. SYDNEY, Friday. - Some of the &nbsp; wharf laborers engaged in the holds of the steamer Sardinia at Circular Quay knocked off this morning. They stated &nbsp; that in No. 5 hold, where the food for the crew and the ship's general stores were kept, between 200 and 300 bags of potatoes had fermented and rotted to such an extent that a thick slime from an inch to an inch and a half thick had formed. This covered the bottom of the hold, and had got in among the stock of flour. They also &nbsp; declared that big cheeses literally alive with maggots, were mixed up with this, and that the whole was covered with flies and caused a fearful stench. &nbsp; &nbsp;
TROUBLE EXTENDS TO SYDNEY. FIVE PASSENGER STEAMERS DESERTED. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919
TROUBLE EXTENDS TO SYDNEY. FIVE PASSENGER STEAMERS DESERTED. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; SYDNEY, Friday. - It is stated by &nbsp; the Union S.S. Co, that there is no prospect of a settlement of the sea- men's dispute to-day. The Makura, at the earliest, will not sail until next week. The recently-formed Transport &nbsp; Workers' Association, an exceptionally strong body, is to meet at thc Trades Hall to-day, when the dispute will be further discussed. There is a strong feeling that if a proper settlement is not obtained the trouble is likely to &nbsp; extend. Owing to the dispute, more than 200 waterside workers are out of em- ployment. The steamer Rakonoa came out of quarantine yesterday, and as soon as the vessel reached the wharf the men went ashore. Vessels now laid up include the Atna, Makura, Moeraki, Manuka, and Kakanoa. There are also a number of cargo carriers which anticipated the immediate can- cellation of their con...

NO SYMPATHY WITH LOONGANA'S &nbsp; CREW. &nbsp; &nbsp; ROTOMAHANA FULLY BOOKED UP. MELBOURNE, Friday.- No ex- pression of sympathy with the action adopted by the crew of the Loongana was manifest when the Rotomahana left Melbourne at the usual hour for Burnie and Devonport to-day.

The Wainui, of the same line, is to call at Burnie on her run to Strahan to relieve the congestion in traffic caused by the postponed sailing of the steamer Loongana.

THE MAN ON THE LAND (Conducted by "J.D.") A DRY SPELL. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919
THE MAN ON THE LAND (Conducted by "J.D.") A DRY SPELL. &nbsp; A dry spell in harvest time has much to commend it as far as hay making in particular is concerned. One of the failings of the Tasmanian cli- mate is unreliability of the summer weather. The circumstance makes it often difficult to turn out good hay, and those who have cut for some time should lose not a moment in getting it &nbsp; into the stack, that is after it has been allowed time to season. To put green hay into stack is a great mis- take, and on the contrary it is quite a mistake to allow it to bleach too long in the stacks. It detracts from the weight and detracts also from the color. Goodness knows our hay is not always of the best color, as so many will persist in cutting it on the ripe side. This is in particular a mistake this season, when we may be expected to reply on the export trade to a large extent. The crops on the mainland are patchy, and drought is attacking many districts. There will ...
