A rcaord attendance witnessed the i Donald Cup on Wednesday last, includ ing visitors from Birchip, St. Arnaud, i Woomelang, Mildura, and the metropolis.1 The weather conditions were all that j could be desired, tho arrangements wer» well in hand, and the racing was excep tionally good, several winners getting the judge's Terdict by a short head. L)rox won the cup in fine style, Valwielt just beating tho favorite, Clumettui, for second place. Drer was not a good winner for tho "books," as ho was well backed at fair prices.

Our Melbourne Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 18 February 1914
Our Melbourne Letter. (Feoh a Coebebpondbki) The absence of the closure in tlio State Parliament undoubtedly puts State ministers at a grave disadvantage b« compared wi'h their Commonwealth brethren in dealing with borcB and time wasters. As I write tho Assembly is furnishing a striking instance of this truism. As every one knows there re mains little or nothing to be dono for this session except to pass the estimates which should hare been dealt with two nipntbs ago. Mr Hannah, Mr J. W. Billison and one or two other Labor irro coneileables, however, determined to Veep the House sitting, and are making futile attempts to get equal pay for female teachers to that given to males. When ministers saw early in the morn ing that their friends oppoeito were out simply for obstruction they wisely determined to givo tho reporters (Han sard and newspaper men alike) a holiday and bad the galleries cleared. This an noyed the stonewallorB who dearly love to see their names mentioned in the Press...
Correspondence. THE LOUDCRY OF CHURCHES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 18 February 1914
Correspondence* THE LOCTDCRY OF CHURCHES. TO TUB EDITOIt. ■ Sir,—The council of churches, church federation, and a parliament of religions all. lead in the one direction, viz., to a union of church and state. The ilible in the State school movement is only a subordinate move in the same direction. These religious confederacies, with tho confederacies of trade behind them, mark the intentions of the age. Tho Scriptures foretell a fiual union of the church and state. Active agencies everywhere, which do not perceive the danger in final rosults, are working blindly for the downfall ot' frpwiam—both civil and religious. These endeavors are being made by the churches in high authority with the idea of con solidating their power. The power which the church ■ aim3 for, and unwisely ima gines it needs, ia the power ot'the State. Wfiilo the churches are confederating for a state union, the trade confederacies aro combining for the nid of civil powor also, i A. very subtle influence, as far a...

Count Robert of Clermont-Ton nerre, tho well-known sportsman, were, it appears, annoyed by the mar riage and the family broke oft all re lations with Prince Auguste and his bride.

OBSTACLES OVERCOME FROM PORTER TO PROFESSOR . Humble rank and poverty, although foriiiidablo obstacles to anyone who wishes to attain prominence In the leirned profession In Russia, have been triumphantly overcome by a poor rcan. M. Prokaroff, who, after a fight against odds, has risen from the posi tion of college doorkeeper to an im portant appointmeit upon the educa tional staff of a university, says the St. Petersburg correspondent of "The Daily Citizen." M. Prokaro'f. the son of a cook, was a doorkeeper at the Lasareff Institute for the study of Oriental Philosophy. Here ne began to interest himself in the study of Oriental culture.

HOUSES AND LIVES PENALTIES PAID. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 18 February 1914
BOUSES AND LIVES PENALTIES PAID. (By L. G. Clilozza Monoy, ill "Tho Daily News.") The dcath-rato of the United Kins: loin is 14,000 n year of the population. I'hls rate expresses the averaging of &lt;mie wide variations—variations which express the difference between good lousing and bad housing. There are places where tho death-rato la about 20 per 1000; thore are other places whore it falls below 10 per 1000. :t is easier to state these things than to bring homo to tho mind the full re alisation of tholr meaning. Let me en deavor to convey their terrlblo import. To show what a death-rate may ho under decent conditions, that of East bourne Is about 10 to 1000. That also is about the death-rate of Hampstead. It Is also the death-rate of New Zealand. What would it mean to tho United '\Ingdoin if the death-rate of the whole "ountry could be reduced to tills figure, shown to be a possible figure by actual experience? It would mean a savins in tho United Kingdom of IS!,000 lives...
CHAPTER IX. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 18 February 1914
CHAPTER IX. Tho individual may have a long me mory, but the general public has a short one. Where the general public were concerned, the Hasted bank rob bery had ben consigned to tho lim bo 01' forgotten things, though an un expected, belated development, pro claimed by a sensational newspaper head-Hue, would bo enough to drag it forth. Men would think for a moment, and j say, "Of course!" Then they would recall the ca6e more or less vaguely. "The fellow'6 name was Stanmore, or Stan-something. What was the sen tence? Five or ten years? He was engaged to be .married, wasn't he? Didn't she faint in court, or something like that? A shop-girl, wasn't she?" But there was no oblivion for the man in the prison cell—he could not consign memories to a limbo. Every hour, every day, hit memories more deeply into heart and soul—as acid bites into metal. Thero were no bru tal warders at Stilchester gaol. The governor was a former army oilicor and a gentleman. But prison regula tions were prison ...

Bj- HENRY FARMER, Author of "Tho Money-Lender,'■ "12n Quiltry Street," "Bondage," etc. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER VIII.—Continued. Queenie's manner of accepting Mi chael Thome's offer of marriage was indeed unconventional. She had im molated herself on the family altar— for the family's sake, or perhaps for the sake of one member of the fam ily—.her.mother. 8he might have re fused Thome, anl 'left her father, Beryl, and her brother to fend for ■themselves; left Philip to pay the penalty of his 'theft. Quite frankly, she had grown to hate her father; she despised her brother. Beryl sho loved; hut Beryl with her training would have been in a position to earn her living independently of Thorno. "But lier mother's life depended on freedom from anxiety, constant atten tion, atid comfortable surroundings. Thome had supplied the wherewithal. Had Queenie been free to earu her living she would have had a commer cial value of about thirty to thirty five shillings a week. The rent of the r...
