MAIL STEAMER'S PLIGHT. ON LEDGE OF ROCKS. WILD WEATHER ON CANADIAN COAST. ST. JOHN, WEDNESDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 16 January 1914
MAIL STEAMEW'S PLIGHT. ON LEDGE OF ROCKS. WILD WEATHER ON CANADIAN COAST. ST. JOHN, WaDNESDAY. Reports were in circulation here early to-day that the Royal mail steamer Cobequid, which during a terrific storm struck a rock off Brier Island on Mionday night, was still above water. These reports had not, however, been verified up to early in the afternoon, and the con tinued silence of the vessel's wire less apparatus appeared ominous. But later more reassuring news was received from Halifax. This mes sage simply stated that the Cobequid had been sighted bard and fast on the Trinity ledges, and that her pas sengers are believed to be safe. The Canadian Government steamer Lady Laurier had previously been despatched to make an attempt to locate the Cobequid. Much wreckage is coming ashore on the Nova Scotian coast, but so far it has not been identified. Great gales continue to rage along the Atlantic coast, and terrific snow storms are occurring at sea.

DOOKIE AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. INTERESTING REPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 16 January 1914
DOOKIE AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. INTERESTING REPORTS. The Council of Agricultural Edu-.' cation (of which Mr A. H. Dowie, J.P., of Carisbrook, is a member), has received the following reports for the month of December from the staff of the Dookie Agricultural Col lege : Principal's Report.-The rainfall for December amounts to 81 points, and the total rainfall for the year 1913 totals 20.09 inches. The avs'erage rainfall for the last 33 years to the end of 1913 is 21.10 inches. The work for the month was mainly confined to harvesting operations. Although the general average returns will be good they will not come np to expectations. The wind storms occasionally experienced during the month mitigated to some extent in obtaining full returns, especially in respect to the barley plots. In the sxperimental fields I have looked through about 3000 of the plots and selected plants for next season's stud srowing. A little later on other selec tions will be made of those varieties of wheat that s...
WEDNESDAY ASSOCIATION. ANOTHER DRAW. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 16 January 1914
WEDNESDAY ASSOCIATION. ANOTHER DRAW. The results of the Wednesday matches are getting tiresome, draw succeeding draw in monotonous suc cession. It's time some scheme was evolved to get away from this, and the simplest seems to be to start the matches earlier. On Wednesday the Methodists and United came out equal again. Batting first, United knocked up 134 before closing with five wickets down. The strong bat ting of the first pair, Grossman and Branton, was the feature, though both gave chances. Powell headed the bowling with 4 for 21. The first two men on the Methodist side, Gould and Davey, also made a good stand, though they, too, should have been caught early. Colman was the only other batsman to stay, and six wickets were down for 92 at the call of time. Branton took three wickets and Mitchell two, the former securing his three in one over, and just missing the "hat trick." Scores : UNITED. Grossman, not out .. ... .. 51 Branton, c Colman, b Powel! ... .39 Lamb, c and b Powell ...
CRICKET. TO-MORROW'S MATCHES. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 16 January 1914
CRICKET. (NOTES BY O??os.) TO-MORROW'S MATCHES. There should be a good atten dance at the oval to-morrow to wit ness the conclusion of the match between Maryborough and Railiaye. In their first innings Miaryborough made 105, and Railways, after hav ing only three wickets down for 65, concluded the day by losing severn wickets for 79. Thus they have 27 runs to make to win with three wickets to do the work. It really seems a very small number for four bats to put together, but the glorious uncertainty of cricket is an ever Dresent quantity--witness Davey taking 4 wickeis for 2 runs last Saturday-and anything might happon, Neither Baker, M'Masters, Kelly, nor Willat are exactly inter state batsmen, but there is always a chance of a man putting runs together if he exercises care and does not go out to throw his wicket away. IMaryborough's best policy would seem to be to put Davey on one end and Haberie at the other to begin with, and then bring Stevens in if the latter does not come off...

GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 16 January 1914
GENERAL NEWS. It is stated by a Fremantle clergy man that girl immigrants are in veigled into houses for evil purposes in some cases, and are brought to ruin at the outset of their Australian career. He has offered to supply in stances in support of his statement. These reports were submitted for in vestigation to Mr Neville, the clerk in charge of the W.A. Immigration (partment, and every possible chan with the aid of the police. Only one incident that by any stretch of imagination could support the idea of white slave dealing was discovered. This related to the case of a young girl who was alleged to have been enticed into a house, ostensibly as a domestic servant, but actually as a white slave. Even in this instance the allegation was not completely proved, but the Immigration depart ment, thinking that the case was suspicious, had the girl placed in another house. Most of the infor mants have baulked the investiga tion by declining to give the names of those who, according to th...
OLD AGE. ITS CAUSE AND PREVENTION. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 16 January 1914
OLD AGE. ITS CAUSE AND PREVENTION. There is no longer any occasion to go hunting for the spring of eternal youth. Mr Sanford Bennett, of San Francisco, has found something that gives the same much-longed-for re sults. He can prove it, too, and in his own person. At 50 years of age he was worn out practically and broken down in health. He is now 72, in excellent health, a good deal of an athlete, and, judging by his photograph, looks about 35. At 50 he was partially bald. To-day be has a thick head of hair, although it is white. At 50 his eyes were weak and getting worse rapidly, so that he needed glasses. To-day his eyes are as well as they ever were. and so on. But let him tell all about it himself. He has done this in a volume which is a collection of statements about himself and his experiences and directions for taking some very simple and gentle exer cises in bed every morning before arising. The book is called, " Old Age: Its Cause and Prevention,"' a copy of which has reached...

DUNOLLY. OLD RESIDENT'S DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 16 January 1914
DUNOLLY. OLD RESIDENT'S DEATH. Mr John Holt, more familiarly known as "Cockney Jack," one of the oldest residents in the district, passed away on Tuesday morning, aged 81 years. He was a native of London, and well connected. He served his time as a ship's carpenter, but the news of gold discoveries brought deceased to Victoria in the early fifties. He was fairly success ful in mining, but afterwards took to carpentry, which he followed till a short time ago. He lost heavily some years ago in mining specula tions. He was a most genial, intelli gent, and conversant man, a great favorite, and unmarried.
