POOR GENTILITY REMARKABLE LETTERS. The "Daily Telegraph" published a short communication from a corres pondent. stating that his daughter found difficulty in arranging for a suffi cient supply to a business firm of knit ting and crochet work done at homo, It received close on 300 letters ask ing for employment or for further in formation, and many more wore de livered in the course of the day. These letters came from all parts of England. London .was , of course, largely represented, but "the great North and West of England towns, many of our best-known watering places and quiet villages in many counties sent a substantial contingent. Hundreds of witnesses have here filed their evidence of eagerness to grasp at a possible addition of a few shillings a week to their incomes. Few show traces of the "pin-money" spirit; many, on the other hand, have clearly a fight to make both ends meet. Who are these women? Their writing and notepaper give an unmistakable and pathetic answer. By far t...

WEDOERBURN [From Our Own Correspondent.] TENNIS. WEDDERBURN V. INGLEWOOD. The second match of the season be tween these two clubs was played at Inglewood on Monday last. On the first occasion of meeting, the Inglewood Club was represented by a weak team and was defeated. On Monday the best team the home club could muster was got together and the Inglewood club had the satisfaction of completely turning the tables on their opponents. The weather was fairly warm and most of the players were distressed when the games were finished. In Diddams—of interstate championship fame—the home club possesses a'player who is far too good for any other player in the district. Undoubtedly theassitance rendered by Diddams went far in bring ing aboutWedderbur.i's downfall. Each side was represented by 6 players. In all 13 rubbers wore played. Of theso 9 were doubles and -1 single;. AltHough Wedderburn were only suc:essful in winning 3 rubbors, some of the se's were very close notably those in the rubb...

VOLUNTARY INSURANCE GAIN 'CO FltlliNDLiY SOCIETIES. (By Margaret DouplaH, In "The Daily Mall.")

ARMS BY STEALTH CUSTOMS EVADED. The arming of Ulster has been going on quietly for tho Inst live years. At first the rifles purchased were part of a large number originally made for tho Italian Army, but never actually put into service owing to the decision to adopt an improved type. These Italian rifles (writes Mr R. Montague Smith in "The Daily Mall" of Decem ber G), of which about 25,000 were purchased for Ulster, are not so pre cise as tho modern service weapon, being long in the barrel, with an un usually large bore and a high trajec tory. Nevertheless they are very deadly weapons, shooting accurately at a distance of 1500 yards. Kach rifle has a clip holding Ave cartridges. These rifles were bought in Ham burg, and shipped from there to Dun dee, Lelth, Newcastle, and West Hartlepool. At one or other of those ports they were transhipped to a boat bound for Belfast, often consigned as hardware, electrical equipment, or I even pianos. SECRECY OBSERVED.

USE FOR FALLOW LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 31 January 1914

USE FOR FALLOW LANDS. It is questionable if ono non-fallow ing wheat-grower could bo found in nny part of Victoria. Not only so, but also ovory part of tho fallow and four courso rotation system, combined with shoep-keoping, is boing steadily adopt ed. Tlio cleanness of tho crops this year, and freedom from wild oats, sor rel, and other weeds (speaking gener ally, of course, because there aro still a few oxceptions) arc noticeable'■'ris a direct outeomo of the improved agri culture. Tho importanco of "work ing tho fallow" is no longer doubted, and tho instances aro increasing in. which fattening fodder for tho sheep is being grown on tho fallow, thus sav ing tho one-timo loss of a .year under tho baro fallow system, while keeping tho land in heart by an annual nitro genous re-fertilisation of tho soil.
