STRIKE ATMOSPHERE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 13 January 1914
MTIIlKE ATMOSPHERE. That one little thoughts:,regarding the activity apparent at.WVilliamstowx. anln in the port of Melbourne generall. is not needed to remind me that .we 'arL living in an atmosphere: of: strikes,: which is oppressive to trade: and de= velopment generally. The. Betufort strike still continues, though the :men. are now seeking a conference, and the disease. which is chronic at Wonthaggi, has again assumed disturbing propor tions. On Saturday the clippers "downed tools," and in consequence the nmine was idle again. At the siug gestion of the committee of. manage' mIent of the Miners' Union, "the amen will, however, resume work on Monday, but the executive will wait'on Mri Browne, the manager, and ask for an in-. crease of wages, and if this is not granted it nmay be expected that the n?nc will again go out and the mine will be at a standstill. Perhaps the best thing that could happen would be to close dow,' for a few weeks.
OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. THURSDAY'S ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 13 January 1914
Sou-uam o?:uamE LETTER THURBDAY'S ELECTION. More than usual interest is being ;hown in the election contests to take place on Thursday next, and it is plain. ly apparent that Ministers are anxious .s to the results.. Nor do their fear, culminate only at Boning, where Mh Hutchinson has found a very doughty opponent in Mr M' Rae, a well known farmer, of distinctly Liberal ten. deucies, and a man said to 'be very popular in the district. Several Minis ters have been detailed to assist their ,olleague, but from reports to hand it is qluestionable if their well intentioned ,llices have been very greatly appreci ated by the electors. Nor is the Pre Smier's seat at Essendon a perfectly cer tain one. Following its usual tactics, the , Age," which so recently lauded premier Watt as the one man who could steer the ship ,of State straight, has turned upon him with a fierce viudic tiveness which is quite unwarranted, but that its attack will result disad vantageously to Mr: Watt is a matter of ...
A QUESTION OF PROPRIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 13 January 1914
A QUESTION OF PROPRIETYi.: Now tlhat the hot weather ?ad the holidays are with us the question 'o: the conduct of certain people (and he3 are numerous) along the sores of our great port is becoming one that' ms sooner or later be seriously grapples with. In some places, though mixec bathing is permitted, and is freely in dulged in, people are not allowed to lie hbout or walk on the sands in bathing costume, and this ukase has given many offence. Some restraint is, how ever, necessary both with bathers and campers. for liberty has grown into li tense, and the conduct and garb of some of the youngipeople is anything but decorous and decent. Some parts of the coast, indeed, cannot at the pre sent time be described as desirabhl spots to which a well brought up fain ily can be taken for a Wteek end rest The difficulties in remedying the trou ble are, however, great. Onl-' a Sunday or two ago a lady going to a St. Koil: church attracted the notice of all the passers by. The day was.oreezy...

TARRED ROADS. : The good people of that very;.im:' portant Gippoland town of Sale are hav= ing a good time on a good road. ..Th muniripality has indulged .in. a, tarred road, alnd the people are .taking; ad vantage of it to indulge in.roller skat ing, etc., but all. the incidents are not of a pleasant character, for a cyclist of two have tact disaster by skidding o: the smooth surface, and quite a number of horses have come down. However, Sale is on the right track. The well tarred road will be the thoroughfare oi: the future, and the sooner the new idea is generally adopted the better. ,: We have a very good object lesson here. A portion of tihe St. Kilda road has been tarred, and is reserved for mechanically propelled vehicles, and the road. is a: pleasure not only to the happy owners of motor cars, but to all who pass-along the road or dwell in the neighborhood.: The rubber tyres 6f the mot9rs" do not cut up the roadway.

The disease, a kind of eczema, irst appeared in httle blisters, which hurst and formed into running sores. Every effort to get rid of the trouble was fruitless until my husband hap pened to try a pot of Zam-Buk. "The balm brought him splendid re lief. The painful irritation was stop. ped with the first applications, and as he persevered with it, Zam-Buk cleared away every eruption and left his skin juite clean and healthy.

THROUGH THE HARVEST FIELDS. WILLAURA DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 13 January 1914
THROUGH THE HARVEST FIELDS. BY " HICKORY'' IN THE " AUS- TRALASIAN," &nbsp; WILLAURA DISTRICT. It seems only the other day that this district sprang into prominence for wheat producing; but the pioneer in this change, Mr G. C. Hesketh, at one time the manager of Mount William Estate, and now a prominent land owner, reminds one of the swift passage of time, by mentioning that about 1898 share-farming started here. There &nbsp; were then 62 tenants on the Mount William Estate, cropping 22,000 acres, &nbsp; on shares; and so good were the returns that, when the property was subdivided, it sold readily, and prices ran up fairly high then and afterwards. The rain fall averages about 23 inches, and the soil resembles greatly the wheat-produc- ing lands at Navarre, to which the new railway line is running from Crow lands, the buckshot country between Dookie and Violet Town, in the North- east, and the land which to-day is pro- ducing such heavy crops, through the We...
TRAGEDY IN BEDROOM. FATHER AND SON SHOT. SYDNEY, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 13 January 1914
TRAGEDY IN BEDROOM. PATIHER AND SON SHOT. SYDNEY, Saturday. At an early hour this morning a tragedy occurred at "Stoke Edith," Fairfax road, Bellevue Hill.

PRESENTATION TO EX-CONSTABLE WOOD. AT THE ARARAT COURT HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 13 January 1914
PRESENTATION TO EX-CON- STABLE WOOD. &nbsp; AT THE ARARAT COURT HOUSE. After the business had been trans- acted at the Ararat Police Court on Saturday morning last, Mr T. G. Grano rose and said that he had a pleasant little duty to perform and that was to make, on behalf of the people of Ara- rat, a presentation to ex-Constable E. J. Wood, who had retired from the force after having resided in Ararat for about thirteen years, to-enter into busi- ness at Moyston. Speaking of his own knowledge of Mr Wood, during the whole time he had practised at the Bar, he could say that when Mr. Wood had cases before the court, he al- ways presented them in such a fair manner that there was no room to cavil. In fact he was the beau ideal of a policeman. .He never knew Mr &nbsp; Wood to perform any act of an unfair nature, and when he had a painful duty to perform he always did it in the most pleasant way possible. He con- sidered that the force would be the loser by his leaving, and...
STAVELY. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 13 January 1914
STAVELY. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; On Tuesday afternoon last Mr Han- nan, live stock agent in the Railway Department, visited Stavely and was waited upon by Messrs Jas. Gordon and B. Habel, who requested on behalf of district farmers and sheepowners that sheep trucking yards be erected at the local station. The deputation pointed out that in the district served by the Stavely railway station there were 21,000 sheep, and that under exist- ing arrangements the stock had to be taken to Willaura or Glenthompson to be trucked. Mr Hannan was sympathetic and ex- pressed the view that the number of sheep in the district and the volume of business likely to be done at the rail- way station justified the erection of the yards asked for.
