THE MECHANICAL AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 4 February 1914

THE MECHANICAL AGE. J Were we required to characterise this age of ours by any simple epithet we should be tempted to call it, not an Heroical, Devotional, Philosophical or Mora! Age, but, above all others, Hie Mechanical Age. It is the Age of Machinery, in every outward and uni versal sense of that word; the age ■which,;vyith its whole individual might, forwards, teaches, and practises the ■great art of adapting mes.Ds to ends. Nothing is uow done directly, or by hand; all is by rule and calculated con trivance. For the simplest operation, some helps and accompaniments, some cunning, abbreviating process is in readiness. Our old modes of execu tion are all discredited, and thrown aside. On every hand, the living arti san is driven from his workshop to make room for a speedier, inanimate one.

TO MOTHERS OF BOYS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 4 February 1914

TO MOTHERS OF BOYS. ^ Boys demand .especial care at the mother's hands. They should be trained to show consideration to -oth* ers, and general good breeding. A lad who is awkward, grumpy ana 111 at ease in the presence of visitors is a painful sight, especially when—; as frequently happens—his sisters point a contrast by ease and refine* mint of manner and a knowledge of etiquette. Let your boys wait on you. Do not bs their humble slave. Nor should ! they be allowed to tyrannise over their | sisters. That is the way to make : them selfish, arrogant and generally I insufferable. j

DISTRICT CRICKET. MORTLAKE V. COBRICO. MORTLAKE VICTORIOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 4 February 1914

DISTRICT CRICKET. MORIXAKE V. COBRICO. MORTI/AKE) VICTORIOUS. The third round of the Pennant Competition was entered upon on Saturday on the Terang ground when ' Mortlake played Cobrico. The match was full of exciting incidents. The finish was characteristic in many respects of the match between Mortlake and Warrnambool of the previous Mon day, with a race also against time. Mortlake lost the toss of the coin, and were sent to the wickets by the Cobrico captain. The opening batsmen were Dennis and Bray. The latter was the first out, being out to weak uppish stroke at raid on. His score was 20, 1 -20 —21 ; Willing followed, but only survived a couple of balls, playing the bowler back, and an easy catch was effected. 2—0—23. The next two wickets fell for nine runs, and the scores were 4 for 32, rather a poor beginning. Aheam and Dennis stopped the rot and by attractive cricket carried the scores j to 64 before Dennis lost his wicket. I The outgoing batsman had played a steady innings,...

Jefferson, of Dande nong, has been promoted to fill the position of head, teacher at the Lake Bolac State school, and com menced his diities last week. The vacancy was caused through the transfer of Mr. O. F. Pye to Der rinallum.

Eastick, of Lake Bolac, is leaving at an early date to take up liis residence in Mel bourne. During his many years of residence locally, Mr. Eastick has taken an active part in many pub-. lie movements and sporting insti tutions, and his departure will mean a distinct loss to these bodies. In consequence of what the men regard as unsatisfactory replies from the general manager (Mr. Broome,), further trouble is threat ened at the State'coal mine.

A DOCTOR'S VIEWS ON TEA AND - COFFEE. Writing on the subject of tea, coffee and cocoa. Dr. G. H. R. Dobbs says: — * Tea, coffee and cocoa contain prac tically the s;ime stimulating active principle. The difference between lea and coffee is a difference of aroma, The difference between cocoa and the other two is a difference of nutrition, as cocoa is a positive food, which the others are not.

ROADSIDE LICENCE. RIVAL APPLICANTS. SIXTY-NINE WITNESSES. At the Colac Licensing Court on 'Saturday Messrs. Read Murphy, Berriman, and S. J. Goldsmith, Police Magistrates, held an all-day sitting to determine the granting of a roadside licence in Beech For est, for which there were two ap plicants, John Gardiner and John Lucas.

Emily Lucas also applied " for a roadside licence for the,Commercial House. The bench then decided that as the old licence for Ditch ley Park Hotel was in existence,, they had no power: to grant a license for the new premises. In order to get over the difficulty Gardner shut down the hotel from the first of the year, and applied for an extended sitting of the Licensing Court, which was held on Saturday.

ESCAPE FROM A MILITARY PRISON. One of the most Ingenious and dar- ' ag escapes from prison that ever took . •ace happened during the American ivil War, when 109 Union officers es '.ped by means of a tunnel from Lib _ Prison, Richmopd. This building • originally a warehouse, but bars placed at all the windows, ■ \:i it stood quite detached, it was uparativeiy easy matter to gu$rd iicurely with a small force and keep • very door and window in full view om without. There were 1200 army ; jfScers kept in this prison. They were i allowed to wander practically all over j the building, with the exception of! the cellars. Of these, only one was not generally in use, and to g^ln access to this, the bricks at the back of a fire place were removed, and an S-shaped passage made into the cellar. Thia .work was done at night with a knife and an old chisel, and the bricks re placed for the next day, as the fire place was in constant use. The cellar having been reached, the next thing was to cut a ...

Try as they will the factory managers cannot increase their whole milk supply, although every' gallon of home separated cream means a further deteriora tion in the quality of their butter. .There are so many suppliers who will not take the necessary care of their separators or their cream.
