YOUNG PEOPLE'S DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 12 February 1914
YOUNG PEOPLE'S DAY. Young People's Day was celebrated the other day at Shepparton by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The programme used throughout Australasia was uniform. The Scripture reading came from Proverbs iii, 1.26. The president of the Australian Conference, Pastor J. E. Fulton, covered the open. ing subject of The Responsibilities of the Hour." He referred to the in creased wickedness, more extensive pre paration for war, social unrest, strikes, disasters by sea and by land, which pro claimed the early coming of our Lord, But the greatest sign was the proclama. tion of the message of the Advent, found in Matthew xxiv, 14. "This gospel of tihe kingdo: t shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations, and then shall the end come." He said that this message, which a generation ago rose in obscurity, was then as the first rays of the morning sun, steadily the light has risen, till now its raidant glory casts it broeams over every continent and distant land...

INDIANS IN NATAL ONLY COURSE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 12 February 1914
INDIANS IN NATAL ONLY COURSE. Replying to an address to-day from the Mahajana Sabha (Indian Mercantile Association) and the Madras Provin cial Congress Committee, Lord liar dingo the Viceroy (according to Rou ter's Madras correspondent in the "Daily News" of November 27), said: The position of Indians in South Africa has for some years past received the most anxious consideration of the Indian Government, which is doing all in its power to ensure them fair treat ment. The Union Act of which you complain has in practice the effect of putting a stop to Asiatic emigration to South Africa, although it does not discrimin ate in so many words against Asiatics. We, however, succeeded in securing the privilege of entry for a limited number of educated Indians annually. We also specially endeavored to secure as favorable terms as possible for the Indians already resident in the Union, and our efforts resulted in the inclusion of provisions for the right of appeal to the courts on points of l...

CHAIRMAN'S MOTOR CAR DIGNITY OF POSITION [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 12 February 1914
CHAIRMAN'S MOTOR CAR DIGNITY OF POSITION Surviving a steady fire of ridicule, the proposal of the Moderates to supply the chairman of the London County Council with an official motor-car was passed at a meeting of the Council yesterday (says "The Daily News" of December 17). The car is to be hired at a cost of £420 a year. It is to support the dig nity of the chairman's office and assist him to be received in "a fitting man ner" on ceremonial occasions. Mr Stanley Holmes, who moved the reference back of the proposal, won dered what the Moderate Party would .have said seven years ago if the Pro gressives had suggested the provision of such a car. "How they would have talked." he said, " of the 'Wastrels' ' Palace, to which the 'Wastrels'' chairman would drive in his 'Wastrels' ' motor-car." The General Purposes Committee sug gested that the chairman's car should be recognisable as such. " How was that to be done? inquired the critic. Were they to have a gorgeous car like the Lord May...
ART OF COOKING FLAVORINGS OF FLOWERS [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 12 February 1914
ART OF COOKING FLAVORINGS OF FLOWERS Having attacked nearly every settled idea in art, music, poetry, and dress, the Futurists are now trying to under amine our tastes in food (says the "Daily News"). They begin their con spiracy by telling us flatly that for over four centuries there has not been a new dish invented. Mr Jules Manicave, the Futurist chef, who is responsible for this declaration, comes of cooking stock. His father and grandfather were chefs, and his brother is a chef. Mr Mlanicave accuses ordinary expo nents of the art of cooking to-day of having tied themselves to the fetish of bay-leaf, parsley, mint, thyme, and onions for flavorings, to the complete neglect of thle rose, the violet, the lily of the valley, the lilac, and the ver bena. "You cannot imagine what a chicken a la lily of the valley is like," he cries in ecstasy-but it sounds highly appe tilding. The Futurist chef has been advised by a doctor at Nice, where he is now cooking, to bring his new art to Eng ...
FIRES WITHOUT FLAMES [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 12 February 1914
FIRES WITHOUT FLAMES Apparatus that will help firemen to overcome difficulties of fighting "fire without flames" is to be introduced in London subject to the. approval of the County Council (says "The Daily Ex press). The Fire Brigade Committee propose the formation of two special corps of men who would devote practically all their time to maintaining and using smoke helmet apparatus. They suggest that the smoke helmets in use, which have not been very suc cessful, should be withdrawn, and that two motor appliances specially fitted for smoke helmet work be obtained, one to be placed at the chief station of the brigade and one at the Euston road station. "These are to be manned." add the committee, "by specially selected men." They suggest that the appliance should carry dynamos and portable searchlights, oxygen reviving appara tus, and electric fans for blowing air into places where dense smoke and poisonous gases exist.

A NEW EVENING WRAP. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 12 February 1914
A NEW EVENING WRAP. This is a very up-to-date design for an evening wrap, yet it is so simple that the most inexperienced home dressmaker can make it. The body of the wvrap is in two pieces only, without a seam under the arms. There is hardly an armhole, and there is cer tainly nothing to crush the frailest of frocks. The collar may have a deep square or rounding outline at the back, and may be of all-over lace or corded silk. The wrap may be made in faced cloth, velvet, charmeuse or ottoman silk. pM. Thorp and Co., sole agents, 191 Collins-street, Melbourne, have But terick's paper pattern 5715, in sizes from 32 to 44 inches bust measure. Price, 11d. posted.

RAPID LIFE NO TRUE SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 12 February 1914
RAPID LIFE NO TRUE SOCIETY. Life has become extremely sensa tional and "rapid" on its outer surface; the women, who were the element cf "quietism" in the generation and generations which preceded ours, hav ing acquired a greater restlessness and a keener appetite for show and moveo ment than the mn. writes Mr H. W. Massingham in the "Daily News." Spiritual restlessness keeps pace with his physical instability. A cloud of new doctrines, expedients, remedies, enthus iasm, aspirations, and exhalations of the perturbed mind of the age fills the air. It is hard to keep men's minds on ends which they really desire; so ton fused is the intelligence, and .so per turbed the conscience, of the directing or the enjoying multitude. A certain superficiality and light heartedness characterise the philan thropies as well as the self-seeking of our times. Politics are becoming singu larly bitter in their expression and highly organised in their form: but t1e dividing lines of parties are not very w...
GERMAN UNEMPLOYED [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 12 February 1914
fiERMAN UNEMPLOYED According to the report of 16 of the larger trade unions, 3 per cent. of their members were unemployed at the end of November, the total being 51,303 (says the Berlin correspondent of "The Daily News.") This is again a considerable increase compared with October. At 309 public labor exchanges there were 219 male applicants per 100 vacancies, and 139 female. The number of members of the State Insurance Committees pay ing premiums-that is, men in work decreased by over 30,000 during the month. The serious condition of housing in the villages of Wurtemberg is shown by the report of the State housing in spectors for 1911-1912. During the pe riod under review 34,000 dwellings, or 7 per cent. of the total accommodation. in 1727 communities were challenged, and declared unfit for human habita, tion, overcrowding and insanitary con ditiops being the chief causes. It is stated that the conditions were much worse in country villages than in towns and cities. Uninhabitable a...
POTTED MUSIC TIME'S GREAT CHANGE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 12 February 1914
POTTED. MUSIC TIME'S GREAT CHANGE. Only a few years ago a piano was little more than a piece of furniture, says the "Atlantic Monthly." Sometimes the daughter of the house tinkled scales upon it, or a col legian son pounded out "Whistling Rufus," or the "Washington Post;" but for the most part it stood silent, majestic, like an inanimate footman, testifying with polished rosewood to the opulence and taste of its possessor. That is all changed now; pianos are no longer'silent; thanks to the perfor ated music-roll, they give tongue un ceasingly. To walk down a subur ban street on a summer's evening is to take an aural bath ih the history of music. Through the open windows of cottage after cottage float the com positions of Bach, Sousa, Chaminade, Chopin, Moszkowski, Wagner, Puccini, Lehar, and Ethelbert Nevin, all ming ling in one stunning pot-pourrl. One cannot make a simple after-dinner call without paying tribute to the player piano which is one's host's newest pride. To tell the t...
