Queenscliff Fifty Years Ago. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 21 February 1914
Queenacliff Fifty Yeaars Ago. 1 - 7 Thle fdllowitig is-an ?ektr?ct from the:files: of the Geei' `Advertiser' 'for . week 'ending "F?briuary 11t., 1894, republished: on Saturday' last: QUEENSCLIFF. During last night a collision took place between the pilot schooner Rip and the barque Ellesmere. It appears that the -pilot vessel came inside for- pilots, and through some mismanagement she ran into the barque Ellesmere at anchor, ripping up her decks and taking away all her bullwarks from her main chains, aft. The damage is estimated at about £600, which will, in all probability, fall upon the owners of the Rip.. The mate of the Rip has been discharged, he having been in charge of the deck at the time. The barque has gone up to Hobson's Bay, to undergo repairs:. She was proceeding on her voyage to Akyab, but has been at anchor here wind-bound for the last few days. = ? ?

SOUTH AMERICAN TRAVEL. ITS TERRORS : ITS DELIGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 21 February 1914
SOUTH. A~ EHICAN TRAVEL. ITS TERRORS --ITS DELIGHTB? Except.- for journeys round the fringe of South America, travelling there its a desperate business. No where else surely in the world are fevers so malignant, forests and rivers so vast and uninhabited, and insects and snakes so murderous. More than' one person has started up the Amazon, meaning to reach Peru and travel to Lima via one of the Amazon tributaries, and then by an unfinished railway which he strikes some few hundred miles out side. Lima ; but has been turned back at Para, at the very mouth of the river, by a murderous onslaught of moauitoes, wasps, and bees of in credible size, and chigoes which per sisted in laying eggs in the skin of his toes. A French traveller, who started from Guayaquil, crossed the Andes of Ecuador to the Amazon, and then descended the river, could not make tip his mind which scenery was gran der and which horrors were worse, those of the mountains or the river. The, well-known ships of the Boot...

THE HUNGARIAN GENTLEMAR FARMER. Most Contented Individual in the World. Writing on'."The Hungarian Gaen tlemianfarmere," in the ' Windsor," Barbness Orczy says : ''He is the most contented- indivi dual in the world, in spite of the fact, or because he knows absolutely nothing of what is going on around him. He does just read his news paper which arrives daily from Ru da-Pesth, and has-vague ideas that all Austrians are thieves and sequn drels, and that therefore a anion with Austria is necessarily fatal to Hungary; but, as a matter of fact, the political situation of his country does not interest him in the least; It does not affect the richness of his wheat W- thQ welght 9f his maize heads. 'A keen sportsman, he is uunham pered by any game laws. -In Hun gary no one is allowed to carry a /gun unless he owns so much .land,. and the owne· of land-and terefore of game-naturally makes his ow. laws for its presnervation.
