According to their story, '.'white house" descended from the sides with two starving white mien whb' after wards died. Other evidence ffould neem to show that thiis at last gives us the final chapter of .the Andree ex pedition to the North Pole.

THE SUFFRAGETTE IN ROMAN DAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 March 1914

THE SUFFRAGETTE IN ROMAN DAYS. It will doubtless cause a shock to many to learn that the suffragette trouble was not unknown to the Ro mans. In "Scribner's Magazine" Mr. F. F. Abbott tells us something of the agitation among the Roman wom en in the days of Cato:— "The bold methods which they used in carrying their plans to a success ful issue shocked the sedate historian Livv, who tells us that the matrons could be kept at home neither by per suasion, nor by a sense of modesty, nor by the authority of their hus bands. They blocked up all the streets of the city and the approaches to the forum, importuning men as they came down to the forum to vote for the restoration of their rights. The leader of the party opposed to them was Cato, who held display in dress and the new woman in like abhor rence. These are the two topics upon which he descants in his indignant speech against the repeal of the law. He cynically asks the women— " 'Are your ways more winning in public than in private? ...

YOU SHOULD BE DETERMINED in rejecting the worthless and frequently in jurious counterfeits which are sometimes pushed for the sake of greater gain as "jnst as good" as the GENUINE SANDER AND SONS' PURE VOLATILE EUCALYPTI EXTRACT. Be not deceived! SANGER'S EXTRACT is recognised by the highest medical authorities as possessing unique stimulating, healing and antiseptic powers. The preparation of SANDER'S EXTRACT from the pure selected leaves, and th® refinement by special processes give it curative virtues peculiarly its own. There fore, be not misled! Demand and insist upon the GENUINE SANDER EXTRACT* and you will derive the benefit that thousands have derived from it before.

LAND OF MYSTERY AMONG WILD TRIBES. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 March 1914

LAND OF MYSTERY AMONG "WHvD TRIIBES. "We have received further despatches by mail from Mr Alan Ostler (says . "The Express" of December 9) supple menting the dramatic message dated November 23 published yesterday, sent y/ from Gibeli by runners across Somali land arid cabled from Aden. Yesterday's remarkable story, in which Mr Ostler described how he ex pelled a band of armed Abyssinian raid ers who were robbing and beating Bri tish tribesmen, proves that the Abys sinians, as well as the followers Of the Mud Mullah, are in the habit of raiding the friendly tribes in British territory who have been left without protection by the'British Government. The following despatch, dated more thun a fortnight earlier than the cabled mt ssage, shows that Mr Ostler has had difficulty in evading Abyssinian watchfulness. A previous message de scribed how the Abyssinians, in collu sion with the British authorities at tempted to prevent him from entering British territory owing to the desire . there...

LOOP THE IOOP MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 March 1914

LOOP THE IOOP MEMBERS OP PARLIAMENT M. Leon Girod was the first mem ber of Parliament to "loop the loop" in an aeroplane (says the Paris cor respondent of "The Daily Chronicle" on December 17). He accompanied Pegoud as passen ger in a flight, in which the airman effected a series of six complete som ersaults. Describing his impressions, M. Girod said the most sensational moment is when the machine, having reached the summit of the circle, begins its descent. "Then," he added, "the rush down wards is frightful. My toes gripped the bar rests as though they were fingers. Being now head downwards my shoulders seemed to try to burst through the straps which bound me. My heart appeared to contract, my throat filled as if I were about to cry. My chest swelled, and my head seemed to become, a ball of lead weighing tons. "Suddenly, in the place of the slty, the earth comes into view—not merely a portion of the landscape, but, as it appears, the whole earth—and comes hurling itself at the mac...

CRICKET. MOE v. WILLOWGROVE. (By Spectator). The above teams met on the Moe ground on Saturday last. The visiting captain won the tcss, and sent Moo in to bat, Halden and Baker opening to the bowling of S. Williams and McColl. Baker played good cricket for 15, Liddy scored 10 in three hits, and Halden went through the innings for 12 (not out). The rest of the team gave a very poor exhibi tion of batting, no fewer than six failing to score. Sid. Williams bowled well, securing eight wickets for 33 runs. Abbott bowled six overs, and secured two wickets at a cost of ono run. Tho Willow^rovo batting was mucli better, McColl- (29), Newstead (25) and R. Williams (18) showing good form. The Moe fielding was rather below the mark, while the bowling was only moderate—with the exception of that of Baker, who got two wickets for four runs, and who should be made more use of at the bowling crease. McLean also bowled much better than his average shows. Afternoon tea was provided by the home team....
