VISIT TO AUSTRALIA Mr. E. - W.

Ir. Chaplin acknowledged that a 13 weeks' stay in a great country like Australia made it Impossible to give anything like a complete outline of the possibilities of this wonderful country. Australia is 25 times as large as the United Kingdom, nearly three-quarters the size of Europe. larger than the United States, and four-fifths thie size of Canada. It is very rich in natural wealth, producing gold, silver, lead, copper, and precious stones. In addition, there are vast deposits of Iron ore which have been scarcely touched; but the pastoral industry, owing to the splendid climatic conditions, is per ...

DEFINING A TRADE Ioiur Law Lords and live eminent colnsel were occupield In the House of Lords yesterday in an endeavor to settle whether boiling a kettle is or is not a trade (says the "Daily News" of November 15). They did not suc ceed-at least, their lordships re served judgment without calling upon counsel for the respondent, Lord Hais bury remarking that if they desired to hear them they would notify them to that effect. Tihe respondent yesterday was the occupier and licensee of the Crutched Friar Hotel, John street, Minories. The appellants were the Metropolitan Water Board, and the question at Issue was whether the water supply was one for trade' or domestic pur poses, in view of the fact that a cater Ino btusiness Is carried on at the hotel.

To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 11 February 1914
To the Editor, lrc,-As I hold the keys of the July constitute, H-larkaway Tennis Club, which his been hauled like a lamb to the slaughter, in connection with this controversy in tennis circles recently, I presume it is in cumbent on me to take a hand. In the ltier signed ' C H, Lyon " the writer mentions Berwick was ap proached by Upper Deaconsfi Id and llakaway, but he s ys nothing about the Uppe:r Beaco'tsfield tennis ciub or the Ha;rkaway tennis club. For as the writer was not a member of the Ha-iskw.y Tennis Club he was not in a position to know wha: arrangements, If any, had been made with other clubs. As a matter'of fact Mr C. EI. Lyon is I practically a visitor to the district, and at any time has only been a member for a few months. In re gard to the recent aIatch Harkawayv should not have beeo mentioned at all, as this match was played be tween a house party from "Glen. ogil" and a team from Dandenong, but as the report appears to have been furnished as Harkaway v.

CORRESPONDENCE. BERWICK TENNIS CLUB. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 11 February 1914
CORRESPONDENCE. BERWICK TENNIS CLUB. To the Editor. SIR,- I am pleased that R. T. Brocklebank and the Rev. A. J. Cole are sufficiently aroused from their lethargy to deign to answer what the former is pleased to consider 'an impertinent Ietter.' Hie is surprised that I had the temerity to attach my signature to it. But whatever Mr Brockle bank's views may be. I am notin the habit of writing anonymous letters- Had I done so, it would have afforded him some excuse for his offensive remarks. Till his letter appeared last w ek there had been no mentioh of a Harkaway club. Owing to ab sence, I unfortunately had to sever my connection with that club many years ago. and I leave those whom it -may concern to repudiate his charges. With regard to Mr Cole's letter, he accuses me of behaving in an unsportsmanlikemanner by writing through the Press. Might I ask, of what use is the Press if not partially for the purpose of expressing the view. of the pub lic? Prior to writing I had made two frui...

Writing in these days, when every town has its Piper statue to commem orate our national deliverance from the tyranny of tips.

CELLULOID PERIL REGULATIONS FOR STORAGE AND SALE Drastic regulations to meet the cel luloid danger are made in the report of the Departmental Committee (Eng land) which has been considering the matter. The proposals (says "'The Daily News") are calculated to excite alarm among the public and to re volutlonise the trade. The danger to the purchasing pub lie. It is pointed out. is increased by the fact that in many cases the na ture of the substance is not apparent. and th6 committee urge that some such words as "Cellulold, infRlam mable,." should be marked on or at tached to such articles and toys. Boots and shoes, parts of which other than the eyelets and hooks are coated with sheet celluloid, or to which celluloid buckles areattached, should not be sold without an Indl cation to this effect. Special risks attach to wearing celluloid in the hair. It is recommended that local autho rlties should isrrue warnings to shop keepers as to the dangerous proper ties of celluloild. The amount...
