Victor Bell said that the conditions were very similar to those prevailing In England. He believed that the a\*e rage drink bill was greater over here, but there were more drunkards in Aus tralia in proportion. Another failing that was very appar ent in Neu* South "Wales was the gam bling habit, and these two were the most dilltcult and hateful obstacles In. the way of its reformers. In Sydney every man and boy seemed to bo try ing to get sixpence without working for it. Gambling was degrading and brutal izing numbers of its Inhabitants, and he considered that, on the whole, tliis vice had a far more degenerate effect on a man than drink.

NAVAL HOLIDAY APPEAL FOR AGREEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 6 February 1914
NAVAL HOLIDAY APPJ2AL FOR AGREEMENT. Berlin, November 17.-The "Frie (U-iiHwarte." the organ of German and Austrian Pacifists, contains an article by the naval publicist Cap tain Persius, in which an unquali fied appeal is made for an agreement or understanding on the basis of Mr Churchill's reccnt Bpccohes (writes the Berlin correspondent of the "West minster Gazette" on November IT). Captain Persius has lately been identified with the "Freisinn," quasi Pacifist Press; and his views are cer tainly not the views held in authori tative circles; but as he criticised severely the details of Mr Churchill's Guildhall spcech, his approval of the principle of the British initiative has somo weight. PJllCSS ATTITUDE. Captain Persius protests against the attitude of the Press towards the Churchill speeches, lie puts it down to the fact that newspapers cannot resist the unpaid articles supplied to them by the Navy League. This ex planation gues too far, because there are many independent newsp...

People can stand and stare it you ,aml even comment upon your personal appearance, without expos ing themselves to any charge of rude ness. No sense of delicacy restrains them from suggesting, if the. Idea strikes them, that you arc dirty and uneared for. That is what Is troubling Sir Henry Irving just now (says the "Westminster Gazette.") Sir Henry's situation is one that hetits him thoroughly. As an artist he has no compunction In turning his back on the National Portrait Gallery, As a shrewd, sensible man, essentially modern, he llxes a rather anxious ga/.e upon the motor 'buses as they dash towards him down Charing Cross road, wondering, no doubt, when one of them will fail to answer its helm and dash itself against his pedestal. Like every other actor-manager, he hns cast aside the trammels of the theatre, and wears the frock coat that, a few years ago, stood for eminent respectability, with the...
THE HORSE POINTS FOR JUDGES EXPERT ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 13 February 1914
THE HORSE POINTS FOR JUDGES UXPEKT ADVICIS. At tlic Kybybolltc Branch o£ tho SuitIh Australian Agriculturo Bureau Mr W. J. Colebatch, ll.Sc., Agric,. M.R.C.V.S. (Superintendent of *Agricnl turo in tho South-Wast), gave a prac tical demonstration on the points of a hor.su. Most farmers, he said, possess a fair knowledge of tho general charac teristics to bo looked for In a horse of good quality.but few would care to un dertake tho responsibilities of show-ring judging, or to olllclate in any capacity in which their knowledge of the points of a l.orso would ho brought under '.he searchlight of public criticism. This may ho due to natural reluctance to publicity or to a want of contidjn^c. which i.iav be attributed in some cases to a want of method or system hi tho process of judging. No matter what the circumstances may be-whether tho } examination be made in tho show ring or sale yard, the aim should he to adopt some definite and thorough system of working. Once adopted, the method s...

THE BLOATER. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 13 February 1914
THE BLOATER. It is generally known that a bloater is a complete herring slightly salted and smoked; but few people arc awaro that i!io origin of this article of diet was accidental. A Yarmouth ^ herring curcr, when leaving his premises one night after all his workpeople had gono found a quantity of pood herrings which had heeu overlooked. Fearing they would ho spoiled if left as they were, he sprinkled them with salt nnd h'ung them in his "smoke house," in whie'i oak-hillet was then being hurned. Tho next morning it was evident that his experiment had been successful. ]!."* began to specialise in this direction, an example which was speedily followed by others, until the fame of the bloater was established in the land.

The late Mr. John "NYoodger, of Newcastle-on-Tyno and Yarmouth, was the fortunate discoverer of this me thod of treating the herring. ^ The process of producing the red herring is analogous to that of tho bloater, the diff...
