KUNAT. The Harvest. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 5 February 1914
KUNAT. PROM OUR CORRESPONDENT. The Harvest. Harvesting operations are once more co npleted, and the farmer knows the result of his year's labor. Though wields vary considerably (fronim a part of a bag up to six bags an acre), the whole district will come out with a - good average, consider ing what the wheat crop had to contend with at different times witn drought, caterpillars, rust and storms, and especially the latter. I think it safe to say there has been more loss through the wind shaking the wheat out than ever before. The early sown crops, which promised heavy yields, were disappointing owing to red rust, but those put in later in many instances yielded well. Well worked fallow came out on top, and Yandilla King, Dart's and Federation varieties yielded, best. Wind and Dust. This has been a record year for wind and dust, consequently much sand and soil have been shifted off the fallow fields and deposited on tne roads, many of which were good before, but with this fine drift s...
BOY EMIGRANTS SIR RIDER HAGGARD'S VIEW [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 5 February 1914
BOY EMIiRANTS SIR RIDER HAGGARD'S VIEW A meeting on behalf of Dr. Bar nardo's Homes was held yesterday afternoon at Sunderland House, by permission of the Duchess of Marl borough (reports the "Morning Post" of December 1). The Marchioness of Blandford received the guests. Lady Cowdray presided, and said that in the Barnardo Homes the chil dren were taught that the world had need of them. The American Ambas sador (Dr. Page) said that the work of Dr. Barnardo had shed its light -all oveir the world, because of the excellent and unerring trueness with which it had been conducted. The Duchess of Somerset said that 60,000 children had marched through the "ever open door," and only one per cent. had been failures. Up to the end of the year.the homes had sent 25,000 emigrants to Canada, and all of them had started with some knowledge of the trade they were to follow. She had just visited the WR'atts Training Schools in Norfolk, where 300 Barnardo boys were train ing for the navy or the mer...
The Great Montamor Case. CHAPTER VI. The Pretender. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 5 February 1914
The 'great Montamor By ALICE Mi. DIERL, .Vuthoress of "The Knave of Hearts," CHAPTER VI. The Pretender. The entrance to Riverview, as the villa was called, was in a lane. It was well that-there wes a wide car riage-drive and a large stable-yard, for the place was well stocked with motor-cars when Miss Halidare had slowly driven in. Arrangements had been made at the inns for the "put ing up" of the horse vehicles. There was a festive air about the trees and shrubs and house front, electric lights having been festooned about, producing the effect of a shower of fireflies; and as Gwendolen ascended the steps, under an awning, she stop ped short to admire the interior. The hall, ordinarily of a kind which would pass muster as a decently-arranged entrance and escape comment, was transformed into a bower of pale green silky draperies, festooned with roses. Madds in white and rose color smilingly conducted the ladies to the dining-room, changed into a boudoir. Gwendolen was sincerely pityi...
CAUSES OF FATIGUE INTERESTING LIST. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 5 February 1914
CAUSES OF FATIIU1E INTERESTING LIST. Professor William Stirling, of Man chester University, delivering the Lady Priestley Memorial Lecture on "Health, Fatigue, and Repose," said that most of the breakdowns in a man's life were due to himself, either because of ignorance or recklessness, or both. Overwork, - without sufficient repair of an organ, whether brain or eye, digestive organs or muscles, was the primary cause of fatigue. All the or gans of the body could not run at full speed at the same time. Mental fatigue greatly impaired bodily activity, and physical or muscular fatigue had a dis tinct effect on brain activity. The observations of Dr. Leonard Hill on the effects of a liberal supply of oxygen in fatigue were most important. Somnolence in churches and chapels seemed on occasion to occur at sermon time, but it was not in all cases to be attributed to the sermon. The ex planation lay rather in the badly-venti lated atmosphere, and in the fact that Sunday, though the first da...
RADIUM AS INVESTMENT [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 5 February 1914
RADIIUIM AS INVESTMENT There is no more permanent way in which rroney can be invested than in the purchase of radium, It was stated at a meeting of the governors of the MIiddlesex Hospital. Sir Alfred Pearce Gould. president of the clinical section of the Royal College of Medicine. said that the pur chase of radium was not an expendi ture of money, but an investment of money. Radium did not get poorer by giving off its emanation. There was no more permanent way in which money could he invested than in the purchase of rad!um. As far as the mind of man could carry itself radium purchnsed now would ho valuable to the end of all time. There was no form of investment. no fund they could put money into. which was so certain to be actually in the noseession of the covernors of that hospital hundreds o° years hence as by the nurchase of radium. Prince Alexander of Teck snoke of the encouracing results ohtained at the hoenilal from the use of radium in the treatment of cancerous dicea-es. Tn...

BARRISTERS' DELUSIONS [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 5 February 1914
ABIRRISTERS' DELUSIONS A curious story of a barrister's delu sions with regard to a well-known authoress was related to the Recorder of London at the Old Bailey yesterdaY (says the "Daily Tcelgraph" of De cember 11). William Burke, 42. bar rister, was indicted for sending a postal packet containing an improper letter. Mr. Travers Humphreys prosecuted, and Mr. E. L. Hadfield defended. Mr. Travers Humphreys said the de fendant was a member of Gray's Inn, and, when a student, attended a course of lectures given by Mr. Arthur Underhill. Mr. Underhill had a daugh ter-Miss Evelyn Underhill-who was married, in 1907, to Mr. Stuart Moore, another member of the bar. Burke had no acquaintance with Mr. Under hill, save as a lecturer, and he was not known either to Mr. or Mrs. Stuart Moore. The lady had written a num ber of books in her maiden name Evelyn Underhill-and it would seem that the defendant had read some of them. Her last book was published about Christmas. last, and since April the d...

LORD ROSEBERY [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 5 February 1914
LORD ROSFBERY Dr. Brandes, the great Danish critic, now in England gives high praise to Lord Rosebery as an orator in an ar ticle in "T.P.'s Weekly." "Lord Rosebery," he says, "has a never failing dignity; instead of incis iveness and mordancy the charm of quiet eloquence and the delicate;- re strained fancy that elicits now a smile, now laughter. As a man and as a speaker he is elegance personified. And such is his mastery that, when he says anything witty or amusing, his face preserves the most imperturbable gra vity. Only when the answering ap plause reaches him does that face break into a smile that positively enchants one by its coquettish roguishness. "For Rosebery is thoroughly coquet tish as a speaker; again and again he charmed one with gentle coquetry. He spoke, for Instance, of the destructive power of old age which thinned the hair-he passed his hand over his head, which was welr covered-and reduced the teeth-he pointed to his mouth, which was in good order-but although ...

TURK'S STRANGE DEATH [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 5 February 1914
TURK'S STRANUE DEATHI The case of IKavakli Mustapha, who was arrested on board a Russian steamer, has had a tragic development in the shape of his death m prison (says Reuter's Constantinople corre spondent to "The Daily Excpress"). Although according to the official ver sion he is stated to- have committed suicide, there seems.to be little reason tb doubt that he, succumbed to police methods used to extort information as to the doings of Prince Saba Eddin and other opponents of the present regime, whose emissary he is supposed to have been. The question is much aggravated from an international standpoint by this development, and the Russian Em bassy will be compelled to insist on the fullest satisfaction being given to it.
WOMEN EXPLORERS [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 5 February 1914
WOMEN EXPLORERS Mr P. Amaury Talbot, a District Commissioner in Southern Nigeria (West Africa), who has just completed a journey of over 4300 miles in the Eket distirict, stated in an interview with teuter's representative that he found customs and ceremonies which appear to have come down unchanged from the days of the Pharaohs. In some parts the dead are roughly mumified, while undeiground burial chambers are to be found planned like those of ancient Egypt. He found also traces of bird worship and witnessed a bird dance never before seen by Europeans. Mrs Talbot, who, with her sister has been travelling through the region, has been making a special study of the women of the tribes. M1r Talbot, referring to the hard taslk of the administration in dealing with secret societies, which at certain times of the year still seek to offer hunian sacrifices (says the "Daily Mail," No vember 24) said:-"Tcwards the end of September such an attempt was made in a distant part of the district.

WIFE HEARD MESSAGE SEQUEL IN COURT. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 5 February 1914
WIFE IEARD MESS1MiE SEQUEL IN COURT. A curious breach of promise case was heard at Worcester yesterday, when Sarah Ann Farr, of Droitwich, was awarded £60 damages against William James Homrne, house decorator, of Kirby 3ibxloe, near Leicester (reports the "Daily News" of November 27). Plaintiffwas a barmaid at Worcester when defendant, acting as advance agent for a company touring with "Raffles," visited the city. He was so much smitten with her that he obtained a situation in Worcester and became engaged to her. Banns were duly published, but Horne was arrested on a charge of ob taming money by false pretences from Mrs Kate Price, a widow, and was sen tenced to six months' imprisonment. At the expiration of his sentence, in stead of marrying plaintiff, he married the widow whom he had defrauded, and set up in business near Lelcester. Miss Farr did not hear of his marri age, and only discovered the fact as the result of telephoning to his address to ask for assistance in the mainten...
DEADLY WIND PRESSURE [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 5 February 1914
DEADLY WIND PRESSURE A theory that wind suction is the cause of many street accidents was put forward by Dr Ehrlich at an in quest at Fulham (Eng.) on Martha Rolfe, aged sixty-six, wife of a labo rer. who was killed at Waltham Green by a motor-lorry. Dr. Ehrlich advanced the theory that the passage of such a bulky and heavily-Iaden vehicle would create great wind pressure, and that the woman might have been unconsciously drawn underneath the wheels. If the force of the wind created by the passage oof such a heavy motor vehicle was sufficiently strong, he said, it might turn the woman right round and draw her under the wheel. A verdict of "Accidental Death" was returned.
