The Rainy Day. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 10 January 1914
The Rainy Day. Mark Twain used to tell a rather good tale of a friend of his who was constantly receiving ntotes front a nian reqtuesing financial assistance. One day Mark Twain's friend was sur prised to receive front the chronically impecunious correspondent a letter which contain?ed the following: -"I have decided this time to reverse the usual order of things. I enclose a bank note, which I wish you to keetl for me against a rainy day." But the re cipient of the epistle could find no en closure, and, turnilng to the letter again, he found oni the second page of this scrawl :-"P.S.--I have just looked out of the window, and find it pouring fast I"

"LIFE." SCOTT'S EPITAPH & ITS ORIGIN. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 10 January 1914
" LIFF. " S-'T -- SCOTT'S EPITAPH e& ITS ORIGIN. Perhaps the most interesting feature of the January "life " which is just to hand, per Mr Jones, newsagent, is a photograph and an explanation of thei origin of the epitaph which was written for the memorial cross to Captain Scott and his fellow heroes. It seems that when Captain Scott was leaving for the South Pole Dr. Alexander Leeper, Warden of Trinity College, Melbourne, gave him as a memento a little volume of Browning, in which he wrote the concluding lines from Tennyson's Ulysses : "To strive, to see k, to find, but not to yield. " The little volume was discovered in the tent with Captain Scott, and the members of the search party, considering the lines a most appropriate epitaph, carved them on the cross which stands on Observation Hill. Other interesting articles in this ex cellent number are :-" The Great4st Business on Earth " in which Frederick Palmer, the war correspondent, tells how Science has robbed War of its ...

PROFIT SHARING [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 10 January 1914
PROFIT SHARING Another year has passed by and a now year full of promise has been entered upon with confidence and hope, The harvest is bountiful ; the State is progressing, the conditions under which Australians work are probably better than those enjoyed by workers in any other part of the world and though the ever increasing cost of living is the fly in the ointment, it should not be be yond the capabilities of those charged with the administration of the people's affairs to devise a remedy. There are some who talk of fixing prices but that task is likely to be a heavy one and would probably end in failure, Co operation, which is found to work effectively in other countries, has never been given a fair trial here, but we feel that a carefully prepared system of profit sharing is the only true remedy, not alone for increasing cost of living but for the permanent settlement of industrial troubles. As far back as eight years ago the Advertiser warned those who pinned their faith to ...
PRINCIPLES BEFORE MEN. Footscray, Saturday, Jan. 10, 1914. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 10 January 1914
reiepi~ona : SI Totscray, se ¢ dvertiser, PRINCIPLES BEFORE MEN. bootscray, Saturday, .Ian. 10, 191l1. The opinion is making itself felt in West Footscray that it would be to the advantage of that portion of the dis trict if it was formed into a fourth ward. It is contended that, at present, the area above Victoria street receives a poor return for the amount of rates subscribed by residents but it is hard to say whether this is so or not as such a large proportion of Footscray's rev enue goes for the payment of interest on loans and general maintenance and administrative charges. Apart, how ever, from this aspect we have all along contended that it is high time that some alteration of boundaries were made to make the wards of the city more nearly equal in size, revenue and population. It is both absurd and undemocratic to find three men from the Middle Ward representing at the council table only half as many rate payers as three men in the North or South wards. In other words one M...

FOOTSCRAY BAND. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 10 January 1914
FOO2'S IA Y l AN ND. During the past few weeks some alterations have been made in the Footscray Municipal Band by the rc .signation of Mr J. J. Code, bandmaster, lta to fi "the vacancy. Mr.. Nuttal comes to Footscray with the best of references as a successful contesting bandmaster. Although a stranger to our city, Mr. Nuttal is well-known amongst bondsmen as the conductor of the famous Echuca Rangers Band when this band won everything before it, and the local band has been fortunate in securing his services. It is the desire of the committee to make the Footscray Band a credit to the city, and with this end in view one or two weak spots in the hind has been strengthened by the inclusion of new players, and also by purchasing £165 worth of the latest anil most up-to-date instruments on the market. It is also intended to give fre quent performances in the rotunda when the electric light installation is com plete, and to-night at the Napier street picture gardens the band is tendering...

Oil Driven Railway Trains. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 10 January 1914
Oil Driven Railway Trains. That the advantages of fuel oil in place of coal in the operaition of rail- way trains are coming into increasing recognition is shown by the growing consumption on those railroads that are advantageously placed for the purchase of oil. The consumption on the rail roads of the United States in 19?? &nbsp; amounted to 19,939,394 barrels, an in- crease of 18 per cent. over the previous year.
