KAISER'S CASTLES FOR SALE COST TOO MUCH FOR UPKEEP [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 22 January 1914
KAISER'S CASTLES FOR SALE COST TOO MUCH FOR UPKEEP The Kaiser, who has completely re covered from his recent indisposition, is reported by several of the Berlin news papers to-day to be planning to sell a number of his castles (says the Berlin correspondent of the "Daily Express" of November 25). Tho reason for this step is that he finds their maintenance too great a drain on his purse. The expenses of the Imperial Court are increasing every year, and it is impossible for him to obtain any farther Increase in liis civil list, which was fixed at £1,000,000 in 1910. Including shooting boxes, the Kaiser owns about sixty residences in Ger many, and, despite the strenuous life he leads, he only manages to visit about fifteen each year, and these are always the same. A number of the superfluous castles are pow in need of repair, and the Kaiser floes not care to spend the money on them.

WARDEN'S COURT. AN INFORMAL OBJECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 22 January 1914
WARDEN'S COURT. AN INFORMAL OBJECTION;. A Warden's Court wus lioltl at Corry 'ong 011 Saturday woelc before Mr. A.'A." Kelloy, P.M., when the matter of an ob-. jection by A. A. Drown, of Walwa, to an application for a mining lease by Stephen Terry, also of Wuhva, was listed. I Mr. Hood appeared for Terry. Brown did not appear. Mr. Ilood submitted that the objoction was informal. In the first place the objector had not shown that he was the holder of a miner's right, ami, secondly, he had failed to cause a summons to he issued. Counsol sub mitted that the objection could not be entortuiued. The Warden said that the by-law requiring tho production of a minor's right did not apply to an objec tion to a lease application. There was a serious informality however, the objector ! having failed to lodge any deposit. The objection consequently could not be en tertained. As there was no deposit, no ! costs could bd allowed. - Courier, ,

CTjEMENT St. Clement, whose festival was ob served yesterday at the numerous London churches of this dedication, is associated with two widely different classes of mankind, choirboys and blacksmiths.

PORTER'S PLIGHT [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 22 January 1914
PORTER'S PLIGHT A special committee of four mem bers of the Bnttle (Sussex) Board of Guardians has been appointed to mako a searching inquiry into' the question of the workhouse porter's trousers, af ter six months' constant service, were pronounced beyond repair. In April on the advice of a Local Go verntnent Board Inspector, the Battle guardians decided to put William George Parker, the porter, into uniform in order to maintain the dignity of the ancient town. They invited tenders and voted £3, and in due course Parker appeared in all the glory of blue and brass, an "ornament to the posi'.ion he has held for ten years. But time and fate dealt unkindly with part of his uniform, and to save the dignity of Battle he asked for a new pair of trousers. A few days ago the guardians met to discuss the matter, but, like Parker's trousers, the meeting was divided, and the trouser amendment, moved by T.ady Mabelle Egerton, was defeated by one vote. Lady Mabelle Egerton, one of Park er's cham...
