DISTRICT NEWS. BITTERN. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 29 January 1914

Birnreirxna ?bbertiser. DANDRbsOSN, TIHURSDAY, JANtAtT 29 DISTRICT NEWS. BITTERN. Pending Sir Maurice Fitzmaurice's report, those who can only see ahead from day to day have been going around thinking the end of the Naval Base works had come, but to those who could see far out into the future of this great island continent, and knowing that \Vestern Port is the only port that could receive a half. sunken man-of-war, the news that the works are permanent, and are to be pushed ahead without delay, has not come as a surprise. In the great undertaking to establish a Naval Base at W\Vestern Port, near Bittern, various classes of labour have to be carried out. It is true that the men up to somne 300 have been put off, but their work is finished, and other artisans must now be employed. The buildings in accordance with Admiral Henderson's scheme are to be erected, waterways deepened, large supplies of stone mnust be obtained, and thus as years roll on money and men will carve out (as in th...

QUEEN MOTHER INTEREBT IN REFUGE. Queen Alexandra received a warm welcome from thousands of people on her arrival at King's Cross on Satur day afternoon to open formally the Hostel for WVomen erected as a me morial to Mary Lady Curzon, late wife of Earl Curzon (says "Lloyd's Weekly" of November 30).

CLAREMONT BROTHERHOOD EXPERIENCES IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 29 January 1914

CLAREMONT BROTUERHIOOD EXPERIENCES IN AUSTRALIA. Spoeakling at the Claremont Brother hood on Sunday afternoon on tile social life of Australia (says the "Isllngton Gazette" of December 10), the Rev. Victor Bell said that the conditions were very similar to those prevailing in England. He believed that the ave rage drink bill was greater over here. but there were more drunkards in Aus tralia in proportion. Another failing that was very appar ent in New South Wa.les was the gam bling habit, and these two were the most difflicult and hateful obstacles in the way of its reformers. In Sydney every man and boy seemed to be try Ing to get sixpence without working for it. Gambling was degrading and brutal ising numbers of its Inhabitants, and he considered that, on the whole, this vice had a far more degenerate effect on a man than drink. The aborigine of Australia had been quick to copy the white man in his vices. The speaker said that in his own township, where 230 acres had been allotted...

"THE GRAVE OF THE SOUL" [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 29 January 1914

"THE GRAVE' OF THE SOUL " According to the Cairo correspondent of the 'Manchester Guardian," Cairo seems to be in a bad way: Burglaries, robberies with violence, and thefts are the order of the day. Side by side with tle nmilitary regime there is a laxity of morals which is allowed to go on quite unchecked. The number of cafes in Cairo is remarkable, and fresh ones are being constantly opened. In some streets leading off the principal street there are nothing but cafes. At some of the music-halls arid theatres pieces of the grossest imnoralWty are given. "Cairo is the grave of the soul." said lishop Blyth, and thile opinion of the correspondent is that he wits not far wrong.

COlRESPONDENCE. THE SPIN;LESS CACTUS. TO TIHE EDITOR. Sir,-This useful and prolific plant is not yet much known, and it would prove a great value to pastoralists, especially in poor soils of seni-arid country. During the hot dry seasons, or periods of drought, when all other kinds of fodder are languishing or aro destroyed, this plant wculd be luxuriant, and being of a rich moist nature, it would also greatly minimiso tho neces sity for much water, if any, and would, therefore. prove the salvation of many stock owners. It can be easily grown in any kind of dry soil, and after the first year will produce about 100) tons per acre of this succulent and nutritious fodder, which can be fed to all classes and poultry, and it is highly praised by the loading authoritiet who say that it makes bhoof and butter, or milk of the best quality. Some of the improved rarities yield several tons per acre of large and well-flavoured fruit, which makes excellent preserves, and the fleshy young leaves ...

Thefireat Montamor Case. By ALICE 31. DIEHL, Authoress of "Tho Knave of Hearts," CHAPT~R III. England-in all the glorious greenery of a sunny May. The Grange, as the late General Plalldaro's old-fashioned country house in a home county was called was ablaze with early roses which climbed over the wide lattices of the lower storey of the south frontage, to festoon themlselves about the white curtained dormer windows of the low ceiled bed-chambers. An atmosphere of peace lingered about the square lawns and straight. gravelled walks with their pergolas of thick-foliaged creepers, beyond which was an' old, la? wall, where a peacock perched and spread his tail in the sun shine, a peahen meekly ambling on the grass at his feet. But within the house, In the old-world boudoir, the room sac-o red to its mistress, the late General's only dhughter, there was no sign of the restfulness without. A beautiful woman--dark, stately- was pacing the floor, watch in hand. with wide shoulders, yet a sle...
