Although a good deal is said to the ffelct that butchers' meat is not the best article of diet during. the hot weather there does not seem to be the saume risk of iPtontaine poisoning following on the partakins of freshly killed beef, mutton, etc., as exists in connection with other provisions..

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 15 January 1914
.liver el by liim at the Presbyterian Chlirch. Parkville, the Rev. Frank Milno indulged in one of those periodical pulpit denuncin tions of current follies and'vices w' vhl are not without their uses, although they are-often couched in the language of ex aggeration and hyperbole. A portion of the rev. gentleman's remarks, however, which dealt with what is called "mixed campingi" will jhave been endorsed by every man and woman who desires to see the modesty of modern maidenhood pre served, and the young of both sexes grow 'up witl some sort of mutual respect, and oonsidering that Mr. Milne's condemnation of some holiday seaside scenes are simply a repetition of the views of the Melbourne daily papers, it can hardly be urged against the former- that it rests on a "wowser" basis. The preacher quoted tie saying of Andrew Carnegie which declares that "the level of public entertainment is sinking," and there is little doubt that the dictum of the American plutocrat, as concurred ini by th...

SAFETY IN MINES. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 15 January 1914
SAFETY IN MINES. Expressing the opinion that explo sions in mines can be prevented, the Cliftoit Miners' Committee of the Not tingham Miners' Association (Eng.), suggests that the Government should bring in a Bill to make stone-dusting compulsory, and to secure three shafts instead of two for every mine. There should be one downcast shaft and two upcast shafts, making the air-current twice as much as it is at present, thereby clearing away all foul gases, and so plreventing any explosions. To sink this extra. shaft for each mine would, it is said, entail extra expense, but it could be met by the landlords returning to the mine-owners a year's minimllum rents, and the State finding the extra expense to sink these shafts.

THE USE OF MODERN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 15 January 1914
THE USE OF MODERN ENGLAND. The famous British family names are practically all leased for a life term to.fair American daughters. The Lon don stage is crowded with real Ameri can actresses who are nightly applaud ed. for their dashing work in revues. Even the city is full of American busi ness men. The best moors in Scotland are leased by American millionaires. Andrew Carnegie runs libraries and peace associations for the benefit of the English poor, and Astor runs a newspaper and owns one of the finest houses on the River Thames. Eng land and English are apparently on the decline, poverty stricken, unbusi nesslike, and conservative. It is sug gested that the long domination of the London financial market is com ing to an end. New York will then control the credit of the world, and thus the throne of business. India is in..practical revolt, Egypt only kept under by the iron hand of Lord Kit chener; Lloyd George has ruined land in Great Britain, and all the good peo pla have left for...

OUR FREE SELECTION THE SUBSTITUTE LIFE. The cost of meat went soaring up To figures past belief, Till Jones upon. his table had A substitute for beef. The price of clothes went kiting up; His purse was far from full, And so Jones wore upon his back A substitute for wool. The cost of. land and rent went up Wherever he might roam; Till Jones could only live within A substitute for home. At last poor Jones himself went up And fared exceeding well.
