SYDNEY* PRODUCE SALES. POTATOES DECLINE £1 PER TON. SYDNEY, Wednesday. A feature of the operations at the auction sales held in the Sydney goods shed yards this morning was the ex cited demands for prime dry yellow inaize.

THE POISONED PAUPERS. MORE DEATHS. BERLIN, Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 4 January 1912
THE POISONED PALTERS. MORE DEATHS. BERLIN, Wednesday. Further deaths have occurred among the paupers who were poisoned last week in one of the municipal shelters. The total number of cases in which the illness of victims ended fatally is now officially stated to be 72. The fact that the lives of a great proportion of the sufferers could have been saved had the doctor correct ly diagnosed the first case has provok ed considerable comment. The doctor's defence is that the early cases un doubtedly manifested symptoms of ptomaine poisoning.
THE PENNY POSTAGE PIONEER. FORESHADOWS 1d A WORD CABLES FREMANTLE, Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 4 January 1912
THE PENJfY POSTAGE PIONEER. FORESHADOWS Id A WORD CABLES FREMANTLE, Wednesday. Mr. J. Henniker Heaton, M.P., the penny postage pioneer, arrived by the Mantua to-day on a health trip to Aus tralia. In ' an Interview during the vessel's stay he said he was confident that there would be universal penny postage before long. He was also of the opinion that we would soon be able to cable to any part of the Em pire for Id per word. Altogether there are sixteen cables linking America and England, with a carrying capacity of 320,000,000 words a year. Yet only 21,000,000 were sent. It was now ac cepted by many leading statesmen that we shall never see a properly de veloped and unassailable British Em pire until we annihilate time arid dis tance in communication . with every part of it. The British Government paid a quarter of a million annually for official cables. This sum would go far towards paying interest on pur dtosjtes bf existing cable rights.

FROM EVERY POINT OF VIEW OUR OPPORTUNITIES. By Fairplay. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 4 January 1912
FROM EVEilY POINT OF VIEW OUK OPPORTUNITIES. By Fairplay. In your issue of to-day, some per son sheltering under tlio higli-sound ing non-de-plumo of "Excelsior" seizes tlio opportunity to complain about "little Millahorpe" trying to wrest some of the Orange superiority, which would certainly be a difficult task. "Excelsior" strongly reminds me of a blacksmith's son who slept soundly amid all the noisy work of the smithy, and suddenly woke up on the appear and of the tucker, which his father promptly forbade him to share. Is it riot lamentable that "Excel sior" and all tho bank managers and other leading lights of Orange never thought of asking tho Government for an Experimental Farm, and have just woke up to find that "little Hill tJiorpe" and its progressive bank man ager have been wide awake all the time, and have got the promise of a farm, and have also procured a suit ablo site. Poor Orange has again miss ed the bus, buti what is to prevent the Orange farmers from coming to the...

PROFESSOR MACINTYRE SPEAKS PLAINLY. interviewed on Tuesday, Professor Maciutyre, who is at present in Arrni dalo, said:—"This proposal for a light i between Johnson and iUc.Y'ea on Eastor iUonday only emphasises the scandal and disgrace boing brought upon Syd ney, and the whole State, as a centre lor prize-fighting. A largo and repre sentative deputation lavely waited on iho Premier. Tho reception of tho de putation was sympathetic, but tho attiuido of tho Uovernment, as put iorward by tho Premier, was best ex pressed in the Sydney press as "spine less." It is dilticult to understand tho position of tho Government in tho maUer. Merely to talk about padding tho prize ring, is in itself padding ot the worst kind. What has got to be realised is that tlioso exhibitions liavo an evil moral effect upon the coun try. lt> is the moral ottect that we aro concerned about, not tho padding of tho ruie.

I DEAF AND DUMB AT CRICKET. The Australian Deaf and Dumb As sociation conference concluded with a picnic and cricket match, which held oin Now Year's Day on the Brigton (Vic.) ground. All the evi | rlonc.es of an oxciting game were ap parent, except, that there was 110 sound other than that of the ball striking the bat. To an observer in terested in cricket the effect was much the same as that of a game por trayed by the cinematograph. There were more than 100 picnickers, who watched the play with breathless in terest. but an almost dead silence ruled. The voice rif the barracker was still,- but busy Angers recorded what voices could not.

Lovctt and Mr. Adams (the local S.M.), and both wove driven into town for medical attention. Furney was the owner of the pony, which was a very quiet one.

APPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 4 January 1912
APPLY. It would seem that the Defence Department have no time for Mr. Hart, the clever Australian avia tor, as they are advertising in England and elsewhere for ex perts and instructors in connec tion with the proposed aerial corps,—News item. Whate'er the job may chance to be, Position low or high, Australians, it seems to me, Had better not apply. If we want men to put down drains, To burrow, bridge, or fly, Run tramway-cars or railway trains, Australians can't apply. There is some strange, weird pre judice Implanted in the minds Of cornstalks 'gainst their brother stallcs. That still their reason blinds. For this there is no particle Of logic they can show— But the imported article Is better, dontcherknow. We cannot drink Australian wine Without a groan of pain, Until a cargo we consign To France—and back again. We do not care for rabbits, no, We greet 'em with a damn, But they're delicious, dontcherknow, As chicken and York ham. No prophet is a prophet in The land which gave him...

ELLA CASPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 4 January 1912
ELLA CASPERS. 1 In reference to our cabin recently, announcing that Miss Ella Gaspers sang with considerable success at the Albert Hall, Loudon, having been re called no fewer than 5 times, it will be pleasant reading for her numer ous friends in and around Orange. Mr. Boosey, of the great music pub lishing firm, endeavored to dissuade the distinguished singer from singing too much at her first appearance of importance, many of her songs being of so complex a nature. Miss Gas pers, at the conclusion of the concert, was immediately engaged for a simil ar concert to take place 011 the 16th of February. Many well-lcnown art ists assisted at her first concert, am ongst whom were Mademoiselle Alice Wilna (Covent Garden Grand Opera), Mr. Harry Dearth (baritone), and Mr. Haydn Wood (violinist). Ella was fortunate enough to have for her accompanist Mr. Frederick Sewell, reputed to be the finest in London. After an absence of four years Mr. Mort Holm has favored Orange with a visit.
