SUBMARINE CINEMA PICTURES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 17 January 1914

SUBMARINE OINEMA PIOTURES. Among the probabilities of the fu ture are moving pictures taken at the bottom of the sea. Already a young American, J. Ernest Williamson, has taken snapshots at a depth of thirty five feet, and will soon take a moving picture outfit to Bermuda to procure desired submarine scenes. For this trip a special boat will be used. Wil liamson is a newspaper photographer and cartoonist. His father, Capt. J. if. Williamson, invented the flexible sub marine tube from which photographs under the water have already been taken Recently in Hampton Roads Wil liamson, the younger, went down in the tube, which was fixed into a well at the bottom of a barge thirty feet long. The well was six feet square. The tube, made of iron sections with a water proof cover of rubber and canvas, could be lowered to any depth. At the bot tom of the tube was the "work-cham ber, C," as Williamson calls it, which may be of any size. In this William son sat with an ordinary camera and looked o...

OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. RELIGIOUS POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 17 January 1914

Oaiu3LBOURiEan LETTER,. RELIGIOUS P.OLITICS. By the time these notes are publish ed the result of the Ministerial by elections will be known,, and it will then be seeniwhether or not the un. happy intrubion of religious questions into the Essendon election has had the effect desired by the promoters, or, as many people are inc~ned to think, quite the reverse. For many years Vie. torian politics have been kept fairly free from sectarian matters-as regards religion, but for a long time back signs have not been waiting that that hal eoun state of affairs was to be dis turbed. It must'be admitted that for this change both sides are to -blame. The friends of the -Bible' in State Schools have been very -active for a long time, and it is an open secret that at least one member of our State -Par liament is in politics for no other rea son ttann to carry out this object. This is unfortunate, since the gentleman in question is a capable, intellectual -and straightforward man, of a much higher...

THE BLOATER. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 17 January 1914

THE BLOATER. It is generally known that a bloater is a complete herring slightly salted and smoked; but few people are aware that the origin of this article of diet was accidental. A Yarmouth herring curer. when leaving his premises one night after all his work people had gone found a quantity of good herrings which had been overlooked. Fearing they would be spoiled if left as they were. he sprinkled them with salt and M~inn them in his "smoke house," in which oak-billet was then being burned. The next morning it was evident that his experiment had been successful. Hoe began to specialise in this direction an example which was speedily followed by others, until the fame of the bloater was established in the land. The kipper is a snlit herring cured in smoke. The aIte Mr. John Woodger. of Newcastle-on-Tyne and Yarmouth was the fortunate discoverer of this mre thod of treating the herring. The process of producing the rod herring is analogous to that of the bloater, the difference bei...

CORRESPONDENCE. [To the Editor.] MINERS AND THE HOSPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 17 January 1914

CORBESPONDENCE. . [To the Editor.] MINERS AND THE HOSPITAL. Sir,=-As "a constant reader of your paper, I ha-ve noticed for some time past there has been a great grievance between the hospital Committee mem bers and the local Miners' .Association in reference to the collection of sub scriptions in aid of that deserving in stitution from the miners. Judging by what I have read, I do not uink tiha the Hospital Comnuittee would have lost any of its dignity by acquiesing ii the request of the miners' deputation and written to the Attorney-General asking whether the miners could be given the representation they desired by contributing /(; per man per year. It was said that if such a concession were allowed that it would mean a cut ting down in the subscriptions of other contributors, but I, for one. do not think that .such would be the case Again, there seems to be too much ill feeling existing between certain mem bers of the Hospital Committee and tne executive officers of the miners, an...

The Ararat Advertiser. SATURDAY, JANUARY 17, 1914. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 17 January 1914

SATURDAY, JANUARY 17, 1914. Liberals will view with considerable atisfaction the results of the poll on Thursday for the election of three mem ers of the Watt-Administration. Five "f the new Ministers were so well re tarded in theii respective constitu ncies that they were returned un pposod, but' at Essendon the Premier slet a virulent but futile opposition rom the Labor party, and at Prahran lMr Mackinnon, the new Attorney leneral, had a strenuous and successful light. The surprise of the by-election was, however, the oppositiori offered to Mr W. Hutchinson, Minister of Water Supply and Agriculture, at Borung. This did not, as in the other eases, have its origin in the Labor Caucus. Mr M'Rae, who contested the seat, is a resident of the district, a man popular with all classes of the community, and a professed Liberal, but so obsess ed with overweening self-esteem and anbition that he was prepared to sacri fice both his own. party .and the inter ests of the .country in order to gr...

AS YOU'RE PASSING. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 17 January 1914

AS YOU'RE PASSING. When the sky is dark and dreary, And your heart and hands are weary. Laugh a little, smile a little, Just to chase the clouds away. When you think your friends all fail you, And you cannot tell what ails yon Laugh a little, smile a little, Just to chase the blues away. Fretting never helps you any, Be your troubles few or many; Laugh a little, smile a little, Just to chase dull thoughts away. You'll be better, sister, brother, Have more love for one another, If you laugh and smile a little As you're passing on your way. "Now that your boys have gone away to school and your daughters have gof married, I suppose you find it rather dismal around home, don't you, Mr. Cadgerley ?" "Well. it's not as bad as it might be. When I begin carving at dinner now I always know that it will be my turn to eat before everything is so cold that it is tasteless."
