THE WHEAT BOYCOTT. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 16 January 1914
THE WHEAT BOYCOTT, The -wheat lumpers at Barmedman, N.S.W. struck on Tuesday, on ac count of non-union carriers stacking wheat for four shipping firms, after the stacks had been declared "black." The farmers are unloading their own wheat. The wheat lumpers at Bal dale have been on strike since Fri day. It was decided not to handle non-union wheat, und when some "black" wheat entered the yard the men left. Farmers and wheat buy ers have since been unloading the wheat themselves. The season has been a record one, and loading is ex ceptionally heavy. Tho lumpers struck really in sympathy of tho carriers, but tho carriers have not ceased work. Apparently the men were misled by the organiser, and some have resumed work, while some have expressed their intention of re turning unconditionally.

HABIT OF EFFICIENCY. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 16 January 1914
HABIT GF EFFICIENCY. (By Wm. 0, Redfield, Secretary of Commerce). First of all, efficiency is not strenu ous. The man who hustles niay, or may not, be efficient; probably ho is not. Hustling is not a normal element In effioiency, nor is strenuous work apt to be efficient because it is fltronuouB. You work at the lathe with the cast ing you are finishing ten feet away This means strenuous, but not efficient labor. To work at the same lathe with the castings piled so near you can got them without moving from your place, is iess strenuous, but far more efficient labor. Wo are familiar with the fact that an overloaded machine leads a strenuous life. None of us will, if we understand mechanics, say that it is an effioient life. This is true of men as well as of machines; true of us as well as our employes. Wo must get rid of tho idea that strenuous and effi ciency are eithoir similar or the same. Driving is one thing; efficiency is some thing else. Efficiency ia not something we can go o...

THE ART OF THE CONJUROR. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 20 January 1914
THE ART OF THE CONJUROR. Science has onabled modern conjur ors to do tricks that would filli thp. old school of magicians with wonder. Wherever applicable to tho stage, tho modern magician has adopted the no vel features of inventions, and, com bining then with his sleight of-hand, has brought fortli an entirely new stylo of magic. A trick performed long ago consist ed of pouring from a single bottlo sev eral different liquids into glasses set upon a table in full view of tho audi ence. Tn the first glass was water, in the next wine., in tho next milk. Tho secret lay in tho construction of tho bottle, which was composed of vari ous chambers. In each of these was placcd a certain liquid, tho flow being controlled by valves in the bottle's neck immediately under the finger of the ma gician. The great weakness of the trick lay in this—that tho magician did not permit the bottle to go out of his hand to bo examined by the audience; but the re cent discoveries of chemists citable tho mag...
