"Fair Play" in Reply (TO THE EDITOR OF THE RAINBOW ARGUS) [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 24 January 1914

"Fair Play" in Reply e | (to tiie editor of tui: raintkmv arc us) Sir,—In your issue of January 3rd there appears u letter over the signature of "Coup (le Grace" as a rejoinder to "Fair flay" stating that he gave no valid reason for wanting the bridge. placed a mile or so down the creek (which would bo at the northern boundary of Paul Schilling's block.) Mr. Editor, I think if "Coup de Grace" refers back to the issue of December 20, 191:3, he will see that there is a very good reason stated. However, I will give a few more:—It will not cost half as much money to build. The ap proaches are in every way better. The roads are all cleared". It'will suit three times more ratepayers, being more. central. It will be 10 miles from Rain bow and only 5 miles from Albacutva station; although ''Coup de Grace" states that there would be very little, difference, I think 5 miles is a big difference especially when carting wheat. It is -estimated to cost under £1000; perhaps it would be the same as...

"The Rainbow Arffus" o There is no Business that cannot lie Bar;efited by iivo, judicious advertis •ng. In country towns the penile in business sometimes say, "Why should I ;dvertise ?

It is safe to assert that b far the greater part of. the goods that conio from the cities through m;lj: orders could be obtained locally of as good quality and as cheap!v as the eit> housos can supply. But people need tfube educated up to this, and it is through tho advertising columns of the Looai Newspaper that the education can be effected.

"The Rainbow Argus" [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 24 January 1914

"The Rainbow Argus" No Resident of the District CAN AFFORD to do without his District News, paper. It is the only means by whiah the people of the district cati keep in touch with the affairs in which they are personally interested. The City dailieB and weeklies aro all very well for thoso who wish to keep posted upon affairs of State and of the- world. But does not a comparatively trifling event in our own neighbourliood loom much larger in our eyes than tie downfall of a nation on the othor side of the world? The local newspaper that gives all the news of its own town and District— all the doings of its people and the hap penings—is therefore the Newspaper that holds first place iu the regard «f all who take a healthy interest in their surroundings. In addition to the personal claim the district Newspaper possesses it gives very real advantages from a business standpoint. Whether in business in tlio town or on tlie land_.it is of the utmost importance to have a knowledge of what i...

NEWS ONCE A YEAR WORLD'S LONELIEST MISSION. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 24 January 1914

NEWS ONCE A YEAR WORLD'S LONELIEST MISSION. Half the staff of what is perhaps the loneliest mission station in the worM is spending a brief furlough in Eng land. That half-staff is-the Rev. S. M. Stewart, of the Colonial and Continen tal Church Society, whose permanent address is anywhere in Ungava, the great Icebound province between La brador and Hudson's Bay—a thousand miles further from civilisation than the scene of Grenfell's work in Labrador. The extent of his remoteness from the ordinary twentieth century world may be gauged by the fact that letters are delivered in Ungava once a year (says the "Daily Mail" of November 27). "WHEN THE SHIP COMES IN. "The most anxious moment of the year," said Mr Stewart, "is when the Hudson Bay Company's vessel from England is sighted, and we are waiting to know whether she brings us good news or ill. A few years ago my fur lough was nearly due, and I "was look ing forward to getting back to see my old father in Ireland. Then the ship came, a...

SAFETY OF RAILWAYS EXPERT VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 24 January 1914

SAFETY OF RAILWAYS I EXPERT VIEW. The precautions against train wrecks set forth by Major Pringle In his re port on the Alsgrill catastrophe, and his suggestions for minimising loss of life in any future accident, were ensured in advance of careful and critical public examination. Mr J. F. Gairns, of tho "Railway Magazine," said yesterday (says the "Daily News" of November 27) that there was a growing tendency to use steel underframes, and a considerable proportion of the rolling stock of the important British railways was already so fitted. Shock absorbing buffers were already used on the District to some extent, and were receiving the attention of railway managers throughout the country. In America they were In much more general use, and further introduc tion here is probable. Of course, he said, the force of a col lision has to be distributed somehow. If the carriages mount the frame the superstructure takes the force, but if the frame itself has to stand all the shock, the effec...

ARMY CUSTOMS CONTRASTS IN UNIFORM. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 24 January 1914

ARMY CUSTOMS CONTRASTS IN UNIFORM. Has anyone ever seen an officer in uniform going in or out of the War Office (except on the occasion of a royal function in London), or a Household Cavalry man walking about the streecs in his " war paint?" If any of the major-generals employ ed at the "War Office ventured to go to work there one day in any kind of uni form, the odds are that the War Office doctor would be sent round to see whe ther anything had happened to the poor man's brains. It is not like that in France or Ger many. If you visit a friend in the French War Office, you will find him up to the chin in uniform as he sits behind his desk. All the officers in the place are in uniform. It is the same in Berlin. In our own War Office (says the "Daily Express") no officer wears uni form, and it is doubtful whether the colonel of the Guards regiment in Lon don puts his uniform on once a mon.h. He is in his oiiice every day, but he wears his own private clothes, and. the only occasion o...
