Medical experts, call ed respectively for the defence and the prosecution, had flatly 'disagreed on the symptoms of the after effects of cer tain narcotics. Bank clerks and offi cials had gone into the figure side of the case. A famous maker of safes and strong rooms had given expert evi[ dence. Police and detectives had gone over the old ground, but more minutely than .before the magistrates. Every effort had been made to trace Roy Stannard; the description furnished by the prisoner had been more widely cir culated, and the bank had offered a re ward; but the man seemed to have van ished into thin air. The defence had failed to produce a single witness to prove such a man's presence in- Hasted on the night of the crime, as apart from the prisoner's uncorroborated statement. The roomy assize cour...
Destruction of Mallee Shoots SOLVING THE PROBLEM [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 24 January 1914
Destruction of Mallee Shoots SOLVING THE PROBLEM The economic destruction of mallee shoots has been one of the problems which has given occupiers of new lands more worry than enough. The difficulties experi enced in keeping down the shoots for the first four years after the initial rolling of the scrub have demanded careful attention from the scrub farmer, and in many instances have forced him to limit , his clearing operations. A machine has been invented by Messrs. Hallet and Harris which is said to possess all the necessary attributes to render the successful treatment of shoots a certainty, and to open up avenues of usefulness by the destruction of uoxious weeds, fungi spores, and harmful or toxic soil bacteria. The primary use of the invention is to kill off mallee shoots, ancl a trial was held at Coomandook early in December to demonstrate its effectiveness. The results are described by a correspondent, who writes;—The. trial was completely satisfactorj'-. Those present were f...

PERFORMING ANIMALS TESTIMONY OF ACTORS [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 24 January 1914
PERFORMING ANIMALS TESTIMONY OF ACTORS The discussion of tho question of the treatment of performing- animals has naturally aroused considerable in terest among our readers, with the re sult that the contents of our letter-bag havo been materially increased (says "Westminster Gazette" on November 20). Colonel .T. G. Hawker calls attention to the current month's issue of the "Animals' Guardian," in which Mr Mark Melford, the well-known com edian, and Mr C. E. I-Iaverly, an actor of thirty years' experience, testify to the fact that tho most horrible tor tures in very many instances aro in flicted upon performing animals. Mr Melford contends that talk alone will not stir the pulse of the public, and columns of press agony will fail to raise an eyelid, let alone a hand to help. It is necessary for the public to be convinced by ocular demonstration that cruelty exists, and then judgment and punishment will quickly follow. And as a consequence, to quote his own words, "tho infernal maste...
