STRIKERS' CAMP BREAKS UP. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 1 January 1914

STRIKERS' OAaiP BREAKS UP. The organiser of the rural workers' camp at AVillaura on Monday called - the men together and announced the breaking up of the camp. The camp was inaugurated about a month ago, and between forty and fifty laborers comiug into the district in Bearch of harvest work were pre vailed to join. Not more than half a dozen men from the camp have been engaged by farmers, the majority of .whom ignored the presence of the strikers and had ao difficulty in secur ing the necessary harvest labor. Others relied upon aTsystem of mutual help, and stoutly declared their inten tion to complete their harvest in that manner rather, than accept conditions ?which, they assert, would render agri cultural pursuits unprofitable. The forty men . belonging to tho disbanded camp are practically penni less, and, with the prospect of securing employment at any terms anything but bright, their position'is unenvi able. Some of them assert that they I have been .misled by the union," and c...

VICTORIAN POLICE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 1 January 1914

. VICTORIAN POLICE. -Inspecting. Superintendent Milno_ (Melbourne) lias made a spirited reply to criticisms that have been passed on tho Victorian polico in the metropoli tan press. " Constables in tho force to-day," he doclared, " are as good as ever they wero. Financial considerations pre vent tbo Govorninent making tho minimum pay oight shillings a day instead of 7s 6d. I have no doubt if that were granted we would get the very best class of men, and I believe it will bo granted before long. Nevertheless, tho men i\ro a very good type, and I have never seen' better in,the 40 years I have been in the service. The disoipline to-day is superior to any other time in that period. We have only to look at the revelations that were made before the Police Commission iii 1881-1882," he continued, to show tho utter de moralisation that existed in tho force hen. From the inception of Mr Chomley's coimnissionerijliip in 1883 tho force has gradually improved, and in my opinion there hasbeen .n...

STATE IMMIGRATION. FALLING OFF IN 1913. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 1 January 1914

STATE IMMIGRATION. FALLING- OFF IN 1913. The number of immigrants who arrived in the State during the year ended yesterday, show a falling off in " new arrivals," of 1904 as compared with the year 1912. In all 12,112 persons landed in Melbourne as assisted immi grants, as against 14,016 in 1912, and 6776 in 1911. Of the new arrivals some 7179 were'males and 4933 were females, the greater number of males being accounted for by reason of the large number I of lads.who came out for the pur | pose of learning farming and undertaking rural occupations. Discarding the nominated pas sengers, who may be expected to have gone to their friends, wherever those friends may have been situated, and domestic ser vants who obtained situations in town and suburban homes more I largely than in country districts, I it may bo said that the balance of the assisted passengers were practically all found employment in the country.

HONORABLE MENTION. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 2 January 1914

HONORABLE MENTION. I'm one of those near winners who, In any competition, Almost but do not quite squeeze through The gateway of ambition', For when I try for any kind Of prize or brain invention, Under "Awards" my name I find, Wins "Honorable Mention." It's Just the same whenever I, To mend my circumstances, For something lucrative apply With seemingly good chances. Just aB I thinlc I've got a cinch As steady as a pension, [ lose the job by half an inch With "Honorable Mention." The same with love. The girl who most Aroused my heart'B emotion Had several beaux, yet I made boast Of privileged devotion; Yet when I felt I had obtained Her best and sole attention, She married Muggs, and all I gained Was "Honorable Mention." And probably 'twill be my fate When, after earthly striving, I come at last to heaven's gate. To hear upon arriving: "Although to win a dazzling crown WaB doubtless your intention, We find we have to hand you down Our 'Honorable Mention.'"

CHRISTMAS ON A DERELICT. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 2 January 1914

I CHRISTMAS ON A DERELICT. I By Willard Keyes. We were Bnug In the cabin of the Ellen Bayne, and our captain's little girl kept asking if it ?wasn't time to hang .her stocking. "After supper. Sweety," her mother answered, and went on with her knit ting. 1 lounged in my bunk, reading, and when the schooner staggered in a hol low of the sea I was glad to tie a pas senger and not one of the crew. The captain came below fit fcix. "Well, Sweety," said he, "what do you think Santy'll bring you to-night?" "Maybe ho '11 'bring me a doll." "Thal'd be jolly. 1 hope he'll 'bring me a let-up of foul weather." We had a large cargo of cypress and had been beating northward for a week. It had grown bitter cold, and the gale was now pounding us vicious ly, but Sweety didn't mind. Her head waa full of Santa Claus. She "was tucked up early, with her stocking hung at the head of her bunk. Shortly afterwards the mate came below. "Here's the doll, Mr. Turner,' said the captain's wife. "Sweety'U be just ...

THE HOMING INSTINCT OF A CAT. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 2 January 1914

THE HOMING INSTINCT OF CAT. A wonderful instance of the homing instinct of a cat is described by a correspondent of "Country Life" "Our chauffeur's daughter recently came by rail from her home in Car diu to visit her father at Ripon. She brought with her, in a basket,' an ordinary black tom-cat, which she lias had four years, intending to leave him with her father. After the first day in his new home, while MB mis tress was still here, the cat disap peared and could not be found. In quiries elicited the fact that a black cat had been seen on the railway which passes near the house. Ten days^ later a letter arrived from Car diff saying that the cat had come home. "He was in an exhausted state, with all his claws worn off and the flesh of hiB toes abraded. The distance be tween Ripon and Cardiff is fully two hundred and fifty miles. The cat must therefore have travelled nearly thirty miles a day. Physically that is a fairly good feat. But, if he re turned by the way he came, how did h...

ORIGIN OF THE HONEYMOON AND OTHER MARRIAGE CUSTOMS [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 2 January 1914

ORIGIN OF THE HONEYMOON AND OTHER MARRIAGE CUSTOMS One is sometimes tempted to won der why newly-married people think it necessary almost immediately after the wedding to run away from all their friends and acquaintances. When the delights of foreigu travel are in prospect, this course of conduct is not surprising, but 'why in the name o£ common-sense-so we are Inclined to ask-should th= bridal pair accept, as they often do. the loan, of a friend's house, where, cut off from social and domestic duties, they no doubt exper ience the woes of utter boredom, l'or even billing and cooing must occasion ally pall? Many there are who have cautiously allowed that the honey moon spent under the most favorable conditions has its drawbacks. Yet, common-sense notwithstanding, it Is ah institution that 'will probably last till the end of time. We are disposed to question why the custom ever ex isted, and the reason is not far tp seek if we only know where to search for it. The honeymoon is, in fa...

THE WORLD'S GREAT LOVE STORIES. THE TRAGEDY OF GEORGE ELIOT [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 2 January 1914

THE WORLD'S GREAT LOVE STORIES. THE TRAGEDY OF GEORGE ELIOT The life of Mary Ann Evans, who, under the pen-name of George Eliot, became one of the most famous of the Victorian era novelists, is a remark able example of the old, old law that when a woman breaks the moral code of the society in which she lives she has to pay a heavy price, which is often that of a broken heart, George Eliot was by nature conven tional in her temperament. In spite of her almost masculine strength of mind she had none of the audacity of such a woman as the French novelist, ~eorge Sand, who broke moral laws aB lightly a3 though they were match sticks, and was not conscience strick en. Our English novelist lived in a country and iiwin age which was hor rified by the slightest disregard of the proprieties. She had been brought up in a strictly religious homo, among pious but rather narrow-minded people, and although for a time her intellect revolted from absolute belief in the Christian faith, her mind was...

WHAT THE HORSE THINKS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 2 January 1914

WHAT THE HORSE THINKS. Give a horse a chance. There Is time enough after that to make him go. 1 A horse naturally becomes more or less like its driver. Most balky horses are made so by their drivers. Never whip a horse because you are angry, ' A good teamster gains the confi dence ot his team. 1 A horse should be made to fear the whip rather than 'feel it. ' Tench n team to pull a light >oad rfgiit and Lhey will pull a heavy !o;ui right. Never train a Leain on a heavy load. Never scold a team for breaking an everier. . . Load light at first and heavier after wards. Never pull a team when they are out of breath. Do not allow a team to stop at will, but stop ihem soph afterwards. Short stops and often is a good rule for resting horses. A horse that will stop when he is told to will seldom run away. It is all right for your horse to have speed if you never find it but. Move a little yourself to get started, instead of asking your 'team to make up lost time. '

KITCHEN WRINKLES. When cleaning knives ' damp tlie.m before rubbing on the board, as they produce a better polish and cloan much quicker. ' Handkerchiefs that have become yellow can be made snow-white by soaking them in pipeclay and water for twenty-four hours. Boil the corks before bottling plcjc ies, etc. While hot they can be press ed into the bottles, and when cold they seal them tightly. 1 To make linen easier to write on when marking it dip the piece to be marked in cold starch, and the pen will write without scratching. To impart a delicate odor to linen, saturate a piece of cotton or blotting paper with oil of Iavendar and plaie it among the various articles. ' When blowing out a candle, bl^w upwards instead of over the light, and the candle will not gutter, but will burn evenly next time.

DAD. By Walt Mason. Dad ambles home at close of day, and, though he's tired and sore, he joins the children in their play upon the cottage floor. He seems to share in full the glee that BtirB their hope ful hearts. A dad adjustable is he, a dad of many .parts. Now he is slain in mimic wars and proves a lovely corpse; and now he is a train 1 cars, again he is a horse. He is a rooster or a mouse, a monarch ar a gnome it's always Christmas in the liouse when good old dad comes home! And when he's tired of ibeing all cue creatures in the zoo he leans his chair against the Avail and talks an hour or two. Who ever heard such wondrous tales as dad knows how to tell? Of palaces in far-off vales, where mighty giants dwell; of maiden stolen from her bower, of knight in brave array, who dares the frowning giant's power and takes the maid away. And so he talks until each tot is nodding in his c" air; it's always ChriBtmas in the cot when good old dad is there! December's final week departs a do...

FOR THE FARMER. BURNT LIME v, GROUND LIMESTONE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 2 January 1914

FOR THE FARMER. BURNT LIME v, GROUND LIMESTONE. When lime Is burned In a lclln the limestone rock or clarbonate undergoes decomposition. Carbonic acid ' Is thrown oft, and the oxide 6r quick lime remains. When this is slaked it falls to a very fine powfler, which Is soluble In water, and becomes' evenly distributed through the soli, and more thoroughly mixed with it than any ground insoluble material can pos ei'bly be. Herein Is constituted its su periority oyer the ground rock. It is something like dissolving a cupful of sugar In a pint'of" water and mixing that solution in a bucket of water. Every particle of water present In the bucket, would be more or less sweet ened by the sugar. It would be im possible to distribute any powder, however finely ground, in the same way. The oxide liaa great affinity for atmospheric carbonic acid, and com bines with it to reproduce carbonate of lime. This process is a fortunate reversion for the farmer, because it becomes practically 'Insoluble i...
