SOMERVILLE. _____~... ----- ··urr--~ flooring of the Fruitgrowers' new Show shed. It is the object of the contractors to have it finished in time for the great bazaar to be held by the Somerville Fruitgrowers' Ladies' Guild early next month. We regret to learn that Cr G. Grifleths is so indisposed as to have to take to bed. \Ve hope he may soon be about again. A fire started in one of the local orchards the other day. The owner, who was working elsewhere, im:me diately ran to put his horse into his motor pump, and on arrival at the outbreak was soon able to extinguish the flames with 200 lbs of pressure behind the nozzle. It might be a good plan to organise a fire brigade with all the motor pumps in the dis trict. Our State school teacher, Mr Geo. Reed, who started work this week, reports a real good holiday at \\ar ragul. So far little appears to have been done in regard to the new State school, so badly needed in this town ship. Promises made to the effect that the school would so...

Bobbit at home is a lawyer, and many are the stories told of his speeches in the court houses. To show his shrewdness and his in sight of human nature an extract from a speech made in a felony case, in which one of the defendants turned State's evidence, will suffice : " Now, Mr. Sears (one of the jury), I have known you for many a long year. 1 have staved at your hous...

BLACK PRINCE AS MINER SON OF LOBENGULA. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 29 January 1914
BLACK PRINCE AS MINER SON OF LOMENGULA. Loben Lobengula, son of the MIata bele warrior-king, died on Monday in his humble dwelling at Pendleton, near Manchester, in circumstances of dire poverty (says "Lloyd's Weekly" of No -vember 30). When a report appeared some weeks ago that "Prince Loben Lobengula" waos lying ill and destitute in lodgings at Salford, the British South Africa Company published a statement that they had no evidence to corroborate the nlan's story that he was the late Mata bele chieftain's son., and that inquiries as to his antecedents were being made In Rhodesla. It is, however, asserted by the Rev. W. D. lees, vicar of the parish in which the exile has died, that hlo has no reason to doubt the latter's claim, and that tile doubts publicly cast upon it.had been a severe shock to the sick man, hastening his end. "The Prince's" story was that he fought under .his father against the Brl tish troops in Matabeleland, and that he refused to accept the terms of peance w...
SENTIMENTAL CHARITY DEAN'S CRITICISM [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 29 January 1914
SENTIMENTAL C1ARITY DEAN'S CRITICISMI -~The problem of pain and suffering, considered in connection with Chris tlan charity,. was the subject of an ad dress by the Dean of St. Paul's (Rev. Dr. Ingo) at the annual meeting of the St. Saviour's, Southwark, Commit tooee of the Charity Organisation So cloety, held yesterday under tlhe presi dency of Sir William Chance (reports the "Dally Telegraph" of December 11). One of thle most prominent fea tures in our present-day lifoe, he said, was the revolt against pain. But pain was part of God's ordering of the world, meant to show us our faults and blunders, and as a punishment for our ignorance of tis laws so far as they concerned us. There was no lesson which we In England needed more to learn than that evil was wrought by want of head as well as want of heart-that pre vention, which called for a cool head, was better than cure, which appealed to the warm heart. It would be much more dilicult for a vicar to collect money from his congregat...
