COURSING. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 30 January 1914
COURSING. The annual report of the Mary borough club Bliowed that the club is making rapid strides onwards. The club has £183 4s 3d credit balance, which is very satisfactory, and proves the club is excellently managed. The expenditure totted up £1248 8s, which is a big item, and gives some idea of the money circulated. The election of officers resulted in all the principal officials being re-elected. Mr G. M. Brownbill, one of the promoters of the Maryborough plumpton, was reflected president-a better man would be hard to get. In fact all the officers are well up to the game, and that's what is wanted.

A mass meeting of men, to con sider what can bn done to check immorality, was held at the Wil lesden Hippodrome (says " The j Westminster Gazette" of Decem ber 8), and the principal speakers were the Bishop of London and the Rev. C. Silvester-Horne The Bishop stated that the words of Browning, " God's in His heaven, all's right with the world," could not be said now. We had been given a very good world, and if a mess had been made of it, it was man's fault, and not God's. There was plenty of sunshine in the world, plenty of water, and plenty of land. 'IhbTd was a burst of laughter at the reference to land, where upon Dr. Ingram said, "Oh, Mr Lloyd George and I know each other; we are very good friends." He proceeded to declare that if they spoiled the whole thing by crowding in one place and having starvation wages, and by allowing people to live in places not fit for dogs, then that was not God's fault. " If we have made hell on earth with our bodieB," said the Bis...

CLAREMONT BROTHERHOOD EXPERIENCES IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 30 January 1914
CLAREMONT BROTHERHOOD EXPERIENCES IN AUSTRALIA. Speaking at the Claremont Brother hood on Sunday afternoon on the social life of Australia (says the "Islington Gazette" of December 10), the Rev. Victor Bell said that the conditions were very similar to those prevailing In England. Ho believed that the ave rage drink bill was greater over here, but there were more drunkards in Aus tralia In proportion. Another falling that was very appar ent in New South Wales was the gam bling habit, and these two were tho most difficult and hateful obstacles In the way of its reformers. In Sydney every man and boy seemed to bo try ins to get sixpence without working for It. Gambling was degrading and brutal Ising numbers of its inhabitants, and he considered that, on the whole, this vlco had a far more degenerate effect on a man than drink. .The aborigino of Australia had been quick to copy tho whito man in his vices. The speaker said that in his own township, where 230 acres had been allotted for ...

Sho Is a hundrod and fifty years old, and oho has sixty cats. Onco she quarrelled with her brother -long ago-and he killed her pet cat, and she did something very ter rible to him; I forgot what bIio did, I think she killed him. He died."

SETTING THE THAMES ON FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 30 January 1914
SETTINC THE THAMES ON FIRE, Whenever we say to any one, "He will nover 60t tho Thames on fire," we mean, of course, that he is not a very intelligent or industrious person and that he will never do anything brilliant or worth remembering'. Thi# would lead some to think that because of this old saying some one some time actually did set a river on fire, or else it would lead us to beliofQ that it originated with a pessimist who believed big deeds wcte impossible. As a matter of fact- this sayintf, when it originated in the agricultural and rural districts of Great Britain, had nothing: whatever, to do with & river. It was through a wrong intep» pretation made generations after it originated that we used the word "Thames." The original saying was: "He will never set the 'temse' on fire," Now, i "temse" was a wooden sieve bo fixed that it would fit in the top of a flour barrel and sift the flour by revolv ing. Sometimes a very enorgetic person gifting a lot of flour in one of t...

ROMANCE IN CHINA TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 30 January 1914
ROMANCE IN CHINA TOWN. A romance involving a white woman and two ardent Chinese lovers, and which would have probably ended in tragedy and the loss of a deal of Celestial blood, but for the timely in. tervention of Plain Clothes Constable Hiokling and Miller, was discovered on Tuesday. Acting on information received at Russell-street, these two constables visited' two houses occupied by Chinese in. Cumberland.place, Exhibition-street. It appears . that each of these houses contained a love sick young Chinese, and that each " was infatuated of the charms of one j young white women. This dual in fatuation led to a feud, which was I expected to materially develop that ?, evening". Judging by what the con ' stables found in the way of weapons, something sensational was assuredly in the air. In one house they found , under the pillow of a gay Oriental ! Romeo a villainous dagger reposing in : a - sheath. This weapon bore the ' appearance of having been recontly ground, and had an edge li...
