THE WEEK. IT HOME AND ABROAD,. THE WEATHER The lato rising- temperature has been aggravated by the prevalence of grass firos which have caused much damage in various parts, in spite of organised efforts to check their progress.

TEN ACTIVE VOLCANOES. Natives Boiled in the Sea. [Newspaper Article] — Chiltern and Howlong Times and Ovens Register — 23 January 1914
TEN ACTIVE VOLCANOES. Natives Boiled in the Sea. A graphic story of volcanic crup-. tion at Ambrym, in the New Heb rides, is bald by Dr. Bowie, principal of the mission station at Dip Point, Ambryn, who has just arrived at Sydney. Dr. Bowie had been for 17 years at the mission hospital, and the hospital was his pride. On the day before the great earthquake occurred he saw a great steam cloud rising from a mountain. However, he dia hot have any misgivings. Ho had seen similar clouds before. After dark the steam cloud was a magni ficent column, which illuminated the country with a deep red glow. One by one the other mountains burst into, flames. Towards morning it was clear that Dip Point was in danger. Dr. Bowie decided to remove tile patients at once. A large launch, which was on the beach, was put out, and as tne launch struck the water a stream of molten lava began to fall into the sea. The? water was soon at boiling point. The natives crowded to the water's edge, but Dr. Bowie sa...

A TALK ABOUT NEW GUINEA [Newspaper Article] — Chiltern and Howlong Times and Ovens Register — 23 January 1914
'[TALK ABOUT NEW GUINEA .After the A.N.A meeting' in the Town Hall, Beocliworth, on Tuesday night last the lie v. F W Ramsay delivered an address to members and visitore which should be interesting to our readers. At the outset he made it clear that he was not quite prepared to lecture. If ho had ex pected it he would have brought statistics. What he would say would Just be in general and it would be more to their interest to fire ques tions at him later on and allow him to ansiver tJiem, .New Guinea was part of the Commonwealth of Aus tralia having been taken over 13 yea is ago on 1st January.

BEWILDERED BOOT DEALERS. [Newspaper Article] — Chiltern and Howlong Times and Ovens Register — 23 January 1914
BEWILDERED BOOH DEALERS. The first inquiry held by the inter state Commission does not seem as if it 'would bring- much comfort to those rabid protectionists "who have been clamouring for yeaTs as to the neces sity for the relief of strangled indus tries, of which the boot trade was said to be the chief. Unfortunately, although on most matters the various witnesses called by the trade to sup port. the application were at cross purposes, they have been almost un animous in showing, under cross examination, that the .trade is ex ceedingly prosperous despite the low duties. One witness, who admitted that his firm's profit of £14,000, a year meant an 8 per cent, return on the capital invested, was wisely silent (when he was asked if lie did not think it unreasonable to ask an increaso of 20 per cent, on the boot duties so that he might increase his profits by 2 per cent.
FREE MEALS. [Newspaper Article] — Chiltern and Howlong Times and Ovens Register — 23 January 1914
FREE MEATS." In the course of his candidature, Mr Watt informed the electors of Essen don that the Labour Party proposed to give free meals to children attend ing the State schools. This seems i so utterly ridiculous that one is in clined to doubt whether the Premier; was reported accurately or supposing he was, whether his remarks had not "suffered by condensation" within the sub-editorial sanctum. Members of the Labour Party must know that there are children attending the State schools whose parents are really com fortably off. and, indeed, some years ago a'member of Parliament re- | marked that hoys could be seen riding up to those seminaries on their Shet land ponies. If the Labour Pavtv menu that it is nroposed-in viow of the high price of everything, and the i poverty that exists in some parts of Mcllwurne-to feed the children who attend State schools in the poorer suburbs, it is a different matter, but to offer a number of the pupils a freo meal would be a downright , insult ...
FEDERAL MEMBERS' MODEST DEMANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Chiltern and Howlong Times and Ovens Register — 23 January 1914
FEDERAL MEMBERS' MODEST! DEMANDS. . "The Woman," the official- organ of the Australian Women's National League, says in the most recent i'sue : - " The Labour-Socialist mem .bers of our Federal Parliament are nothing it not modest. Not content with claiming the'paltry sum of £G00 per annum and other emoluments, such as free railway passes, &c., for preventing as far as lay in their power, the work of the country being done, during the past session, they now with most becoming modesty de sire free trains, pensions, typists, and an increase of salary to £750 '. What have the taxpayers to say to such very reasonable demands? Mr Me. Donald (ex-Speaker) a'so insists that members should not be expccted to work more than three days a week for five months of the year. Who would not bo a member of Parlirv ment. when our Labour-Socialist friends have their way ? "
OUR MELBOURNE LETTER A WISE STEP. [Newspaper Article] — Chiltern and Howlong Times and Ovens Register — 23 January 1914
OUR MELBOURNE LETTER A. WISE STEP. It is proposed by Mr Watt that stops be taken to abolish that typo of bye-election in connection with which ho was recently willed upon to face the electors of Esscndon. On the occasion previous to this, when ho did the same thing-, he was a [Minister, and his constituents re elected him, and on 15th January, just because "ho had been a few days without a portfolio, Mr Watt had "to do it all over again." This soems an unnecessary and uncalled for pen alising' of a public man as regards expense and worry, neither is it easy to see in what manner the political interests of the country are served by it. As a mattor of fact elections I of any sort are a species of public nuisance, and a plethora of them is | by no means desirable. They dis [ organise business, create ill-feeling in I a good many quarters, and while the campaign is in progress furnish a topic for those loquacious " bores '. , we meet in train and tram.

OK CHARD AND GARDEN NOTES; Tlie Orchard-Budding. Young trees or old trees that have been previously cut down in prepara tion for budding, may be worked over towards the end or the month. It is advisable to select dull, cool weather for this operation, so that the sap may run more freely, and that the weather will not have too drying an effect on the bud. The operation of budding is a very simple one, and easily pcvfonncd. Tb gain a success ful end, the sap should be flowing freely, consequently, when the cuts are made the bark should "lift'-', or "run," easily, and without any cling ing or tearing of the fibres, and it should separate freely from the wood.. The buds selected should We linn and well matured, and should show, iio signs of premature decay whatever. They are cut from the" scions with a shallow cut, and if any wood in the cutting be left in, this should be taken out of the bud. A smooth, clean spot should be selected on the baric of the stock, and a T-shaped cut made, th...
