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.

CHAIRMAN'S MOTOR CAR DIGNITY OF POSITION [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 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.

ART OF COOKING FLAVORINGS OF FLOWERS [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 12 February 1914
:- T OF COOKINfI FLAVORINGS OF FLOWE1RS "Having attacked nearly every settled idea in art, music, poetry, and dress, the Futurists are now trying to under mine 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 Manicave 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 the 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 tising. The Futurist chef has been advisedl by a doctor at Nice, where he is now cooking, to bring his new art to Eng...

HUMBLE POTATO [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 12 February 1914
HUMBLE POTATO Arrangements are being made in France for the celebration of the one- " huindredth anniversary of the death of Parmentier, whose name is insep arably associated with the introduc tion of potatoes as a popular comes tible. Louis Louis XVI. promised to help him to launch them by giving a ban quet at which they were to be served as an attractive novelty; but the Royal cook unfortunately misunderstood the instructions given to him. Instead of boiling the tubercles, he cooked the leaves as a kind of cabbage. The courtiers, after trying every imaginable sort of condiment with the preparation, pronounced the dish de testable, and declared that no per suasion would induce them ever to taste it again. Inquiry, however, detected the error which had been made, and a second experiment brought the new delicacy into high favor. e---
