THE HORSE POINTS FOR JUDGES EXPERT ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 29 January 1914

THE HORSE POINTS FOR JUDGES EXPERT ADVICE. At the Kybybolite Branch of the South Australian Agriculture Bureau Mr W. J. Colebatch, B.Sc., Agric,. M.R.C.V.S. (Superintendent of Agricul ture in the South-East), gave a prac tical demonstration on the points of a horse. Most farmers, he said, possess a fair knowledge of the general charac teristics to be looked for in a horse of good quality,but few would care to un dertake the responsibilities of show-ring judging, or to olliciate in any capacity in which their knowledge of the points of a l.orse would be brought under '.he searchlight of public criticism. This may be due to natural reluctance to publicity or to a want of confidence, which may be attributed in some cases to a want of method or system in ".he process of judging. No matter what the circumstances may be—whether the examination be made in the- show ring or sale yard, the aim should be to adopt some definite and thorough system of working. Once adopted, the method should, a...

PORTER'S PLIGHT [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 29 January 1914

PORTER'S PLIGHT A special committee of four mem bers of the Battle (Sussex) Board of Guardians lias been appointed to make a searching inquiry into the question of the workhouse porter's trousers, af ter six months' constant service, were pronounced br-yond repair. In April on the advice of a Local Go vernment 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 position he lias 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 trouscr amendment, moved bv I Lady Mabelle Egerton, was defeated by one vote.

OVERWORKED NURSES LONG HOURS [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 29 January 1914

OVERWORKED NURSES LONG HOURS A largo number of letters have boon received by the "Express" in support of a plea for overworked and under paid hospital nurses. The following Is typical of many:— As a certificated nurse, with experi ence both of London and of pro\'incial hospitals, let me thank you for taking up the hard 'case of the nurses gen erally. . , . Few persons really realise what nurses' hours are. The night work Is, as a rule, twelve hours seven nights a week, and Bank Holidays bring no respite. , . The aproacliing Christmas holidajs mean to nurses Only extra work and extra expense in the way of helping to pay for the decoration of their wards. It is really a horrible time, so far as they are concerned. At one hospital I was in at Christmas time a fancy dress ball was arranged for the staff after the "festivities" for the patfents were over. But, alas! every one — doctors and nurses alike — was so "dead beat" that It was quietly allowed to fall through. I cannot understand ...
