BENEFITS OF IRRIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 13 February 1914

BENEFITS OF IRRIGATION. The extraordinary yield and other | beneficial effects on agriculture that have followed a proper system of irri gation in various parts of the world, have l)wi\ so marked it is a wonder that in many places in this State, where .there are abundant. possibilities of water supply, more advantage has not been taken of irrigation. The large crops on many varied soils, following wet seasons, ought to he an object-les son, the value of which should not he rejected. Uut there is the fear that, in many eases, it will have the con trary eli'eel-that Nature, having jriven an exceptional quantity of water on one occasion, the farmer will rest sat isfied t/iat this will recur in the future. Instead of taking advantage of the fact that he could himself ensure a pro per water supply, it is thought prob able that he will still continue to leave the efficient watering of his land t° chance. lint the object-lesson of a wet .season should n«»t really be re quired, because it w...

'THE AWAKENING OF FOGGY I By Vincent Ems. It is possible to be very, very clever and very, very green*-a real verdant green. It is also possible to ripen un expectedly.

Q. was twenty seven-a sufficiently mature age-and lie dealt in all the "cV-carbon, crystals, chem istry, crucibles, and so forth-with all the enthusiasm of an amateur and all the luck of a beginner. He rediscovered several processes on which fortunes had been made and lost, and of which the master patents had long since expired, nor was ho un duly depressed at finding that ho had been anticipated by*a period nearly equal to the talo of his years. Ho was not careful in the isclection of.his pa tent agent, ana it is regrettable to state that that gentleman took Foggyis fees, and broke the news of the afore said anticipation afterwards.

THE SHADOWS FROM THE PAST. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 13 February 1914

Wilfrid Desmond pushed away the last paper that had demanded his nt fceution, «n intricate estimate on which his mind had been closely centred f°V the past hour, and, rising from his desk stared out through tho old-fashioned, diamond pancd "window on to tho busy High-street of this thriving market town, to which ho had himself drifted five yonr» ago, from nowhere, it seem ed. And uO<v between him and the busy street, another vision seemed to rise a picture of the past, a vision of hide ously-garbed men at work in Portland quarries beneath the watchful gaze of armed warders, and amongst tho>e branded men-himself. "I wonder what these respected citi zens would say if thev knew the truth?" he mused, rather grimly, as he glanced down at. the thronged' street, for it was market day and tho little town was crowded.

DEMOCRACY AND EDUCATION [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 20 February 1914

DEMOCRACY AND EDUCATION At the National Liberal Club last night Lord Haldano spoke somewhat alarmingly of the condition of educa tion in this country (states "The Daily News", Docember 16). He said he did not htink he -was taking an unduly alarmist view when he said that indif ference to education was a serious na tional danger. . "We came into exis tence as a great industrial nation at a time when we had practically no edu cation. "We were easily first in manufactures in the time when it wanted only dash and go and practical skill. But now the art of manufacture was linked with scientific education, and woe be to the country lucking in the scientific equip ment necessary to enable it to compete with its more favored rivals. That was not the only source of na tional danger. We were living in a time of great upheaval. The democ racy had ceased to slumber, and it was asking the question why it had so much less than its neighbors of the world's goods. "We could no more deal with such a...

INDIAN COOLIE WAR [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 20 February 1914

INDIAN COOLIE WAR Six Indians were killed to-day in a fight with the police in the Mount Edgecombe district (cabled Heuter's Durban correspondent on November U7 to the "Daily Express"). The accounts of the fighting are stiil somewhat conflicting, but it seems clear that there were two sepa rate affrays, one at the Hillhead Es tate, and the other at the Blackburn Estate, although there was a connec tion between them. U was in the fight at the Hillshead Estate taht the casualties occurred, six Indians, according to the latest infor mation, having been killed, and a number wounded, while three police ofilcers were taken to hospital. Half the Indians at the Hillhead Es tate had agreed to return to work and the other half had refused. Four teen policemen were, therefore, sent to the estate for the purpose of arrest ing the ringleaders of the recalci trants. In the meantime the discontented section of the Indians declared that they wished to light the police, and while the posse was passi...

VALUE OF SERVICES [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 20 February 1914

VALUE OF SERVICES Charles S. Mellon, until recently President of tho New York, Now Haven, and Hartford Railway, and one of America's representative cap tains of Industry, has (says tho Now York correspondent of "The Dally Ex press") caused much indignation among the high-salaried executives ot' the United States by declaring that no man's services to a corporation are worth more than £5000 a year, which Is ten times the amount once /Ixed by Mr. John Burns. Mr. Mellen's own salary, as head of the Great New England Railway Corporation, was several times that amount, but ho confesses he would have worked Just as hard for £5000 a year as he did for the larger sum. Mr. Mellen's argument is that who ever Is capable of earning £5000 a year must show capacity equal to the task of directing any enterprise what ever. Nobody drawing more than Mr. Mellen's stipulated maximum has been found who Is willing to second his views. President Klngsley, of the New York Life Insurance Company, declares £...

HOME RULE [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 20 February 1914

HOME RULE Speaking at a meeting in favor of Home Rule nt Alloa last night (says the "Morning:-Post" of November 22), Mr John Redmond, M.P., said that he could never have been a Home Ruler for one moment unless Home Rule to his mind meant a free Ireland-free for all creeds, free in all secular and reli gious matters from any spiritual domi nation, either from Rome or any place else. The truth was-and this was the best of all safeguards, and the history of the world showed it-bigotry could not long live in an atmosphere of freedom, and if there was to-day any illegitimate exorcise of political power in Ireland and for his own part ho did not admit it-such illegitimate exercise of politi cal power never could survive the es tablishment of a free Parliament. Protestants, therefore, might feel se cure, first in the stringent provisions of the BUI, then in the spirit of this great Protestant nation, which would bo able, at any moment, to stretch out its arm and prevent religious Intoleran...
