ACCOMPLISHED COCKATOO [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 5 February 1914
ACCOMPL!SIED COCIIATOO Miss Nesta Lapham, 11. writes to the "Express" from Thorngrove Lodge, Gillingham, Dorset-"We own a very clever cockatoo called Jacko. Besides chopping wood, drawing nails, nipping wire, etc., he will sing a song with my father, after which he laughs, like a human being. He will make a stump speech. dance to any tune played or whistled, and 're verses' on being told. Perhaps he thinks it's the tango. He can cough very well, and coughs a great deal, and is great chums with our cat, who sits In his cage.

LIVINGS FOR THEIR SPOUSES [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 5 February 1914
LIVINGS FOR THEIR SPOUSES The part played by the wives of the clergy in the benefices tratlic is very remarkable-no class, indeed, tigures more conspicuously (says "The Scot tish Chronicle.") To say that some of these ladies are the active partners of their husbands is rather to under state the case. They buy benetices. present their spouses thereto, and then, after the necessary 12 months have elapsed, dispose of the advowsons for welcome cash with an easy grace which is all their own.
THISTLE ACT AMENDMENT THISTLES ON CROWN LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 5 February 1914
THI8TLE ACT AMENDMENTP THISTLES ON CROWN LANDS. l 0 When the Thistle 'Act Further v Amendment Bill was before the Legis lative GOunell last week, the Hon. s 1H. F. Richardson moved that the following clause be added:-"For the r purposes of this section the Board e of Land and Works shall be deemed to be the owner and occupier of un- t occupied Crown lands." Ho said that in the centre of a municipality where the provisions of the act were being t enforced, there might be unoccupied i Crown land. The ratepayers would l be forced to eradicate the weeds on 1 adjoining land, and the council would have to see that it was done on the Chrown land. It would be a most unfair thing for the Government to go ecot-free. That wuuld be the case under the bill. His amendment would give effeot to the. desire. expresredi at the last conference of municipal representatives. \ The. Hon. F: Hagelthorn (Minister 1 of "Public: Works) seaid" he would 'very much like to agree to the phnendment, but he was af...

BRITISH PEARLS [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 5 February 1914
BRITISH PEARLS In early times Britain played its part in the production of pearls, and Tacl tus refers to British pearls, but calls them dull-colored and dirty brown. Origen, on the contrary, declared that the pearls that came from Britain held the second rank of value. It was not, however, until about the twelfth cen tury that pearls were used in England. when they became conspicuous in Church ornamentation. Henry VIII. obtained some costly pearls from the monasteries which he plundered.

THE NEXT TASK [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 5 February 1914
THE NEXT TASK "To explore the most secret depths of the unconscious, to labor in what I have called the subsoil of conscious ness, that will be the principal task of psychology in the century which is opening. I do not doubt that won derful discoveries await it there, as important perhaps as have been in the preceding centuries the discoveries of the physical and natural sciences. That at least is the promise which I make for it," says Professor Bergson in the "Independent."

Filmer, 800 yards. All competitions for the above trophy will be held over until the members' annual musketry is finished; which commences this month. It is very necessary that the members make every effort to get their musketry course through as soon as possible, as this is very essential to the existance of the club.

REFORM MOVEMENT RUSSIA'S POLITICAL NURSERY [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 5 February 1914
REFORM MOVEMENT RUSSIA'S POLITICAL NURSERY Russia will have enjoyed for a period of 50 years (on January 1, 1914) the ad-'" vantage of local self-government" (says "The Times," for then the Zemstvos will have been in existence for 50 years. Whatever progress the rural classes in Russia have made since 1864 must be attributed largely to its influence, writes Sir D. Mackenzieo Wallace, in "The Times." Besides this, it served as an excellent preparatory school for the Duma, which was to realise some of Its ambitions and political aspirations. Remembering all this, we regard it as only right and fitting that patriotic Russians should celebrate joyfully its 50th birthday, and that the proposers of toasts at the coming banquets should heartily wish It long life, health, and prosperity In its future career of usefulness. HOPE FOR THE DUMA Sir Donald Mackenzie's account in "The Times," of December 15, deserves particular notice, as it will enable the English student of Russian affairs to un...

LIFE IN WORKHOUSE MIX AND MUDDLE. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 5 February 1914
LIFE IN WORKHOUSE MIX AND MUDDLE. (By Chris Massle in "'The Daily MaiL") By using existing institutions and by. applying to them something like com mon sense his Department has been able in the last few years to put an And to what were known as the horrors of the mixed workhouse. The goats had been separated from sheep, and there had been segregations of classes and classification of individuals. Thus Mr John Burns in the debate on .11r Carr-Gomm's London Poor Law Bill, reported in "The Daily Mail," May 26, 1911. Very nice indeed, but it is not true. Mr Burns' Department has done no thing of the kind, nor will it ever do anything of the kind. I know that in some other work houses, not in this one, timid attempts have been made to segregate classes and classify individuals, but no very successful result has been achieved. The goat outside the workhouse is often a sheep and even a lamb inside the workhouse, and vice versa, according to the effect it has upon him. In any case, it Is ta...

Chisholm : Splatt-street, Swan- -Hill: bays:-" ofr and on -for some time I suffered from severe back. ache, and other. signs of kidney trouble. I dreaded the backaohe, for it gave me 9 trying time, especially if I had to do any7-stooping or move about quickly. Having heard good reports of the curate powers of Doan's Back. ache Kidney Pills I decided to try them, and it was a good thing for me I did. After- taking a few doses the pain in my back was somewhat easier, and I could stoop much more freely. Needless to say I continued with the Pills and I was soon quite cured, and have been well ever since. It's grand to be free of backache and I am sure thero wivould be much less suffering in the world if Doan's Backache Kid nev Pills were better know '." they are sold by all chemists and storeke...

PAYING THE PIPER GERMAN RULERS AND COST OF LIVING. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 5 February 1914
PAYINI THE PIPER GERMAN RULERS AND COST OF LIVING. The continual increase of the cost of living does not only trouble the Ger man working people; it is causing no little uneasiness among the German rulers (says the Berlin correspondent of The Daily Express"). For the last three years most of these princes have been asking for "an in crease of pay," the Kaiser himself be ing the first to lodge his complaint with his people, and the few who have !lot hitherto dared, or thought it advisable, to ask for a higher civil list are now busy preparing public opinion in their realm for the unpleasant and unavoid able necessity of giving more money for the keeping up of the chief of the State. Still more significant, the two or three German Federal princes who have so far had no civil list at all think very seriously of having one established, 0.as their income, which is either derived from their own (or their wives') for tune, or from the sale of titles, digni ties, and decorations, cannot suf...
