THE RELIABILITY CONTEST. A strong hot wind rose up eariy on the morning of the 7th January to greet the motorists who had entered their "cars for the annual interstate trip. Tho first ear went off into the dust, to be followed at regular intervals by the other 28 con testants. It wasn't a day foi saving petrol, as the strong l.ead wicd compelled all drivers to keep their cats going hard. Even against the odds, however, some good performances were put up, and the whoio bunch of cars entered Wangaratta with but few mishaps. This town ended the first day's run {14ii^ miles) A few punctures were reported, which might naturally be oxpected. in the intense heat that prevailed during the day. The road led up through Kilmore. Broadford, Tallaronk to Sey mour (60 miles), where a stop was made by every oii3 for ar. hour for luncheon. Prom Seymour the drive continued over bad roads through Violet Town, Winton, fJenalla and Glenrowan to Wanga ratta. Here the cars were garaged for the night arri...

[?] PRINCESS'S THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 15 January 1914

By "Peter Gain so." PRINCESS'S THEATRE. One's opinion of , the drama, as of other things, depends upon the angle of view, and as there are always different angles of view, so will there exist different opinions. "The Pride of the Prairie," presented for the first time in Melbourne before a big audience at the Prin cess's Theatre on Saturday night, is no excep tion to this rule. There is a traitor in the Indian Camp of Great Storm, and that Chief . has all a fire-worshipper's hoiror of treachery. .G-reat Storm knows how to deal with such when lie finds them out. He finds out one of his braves, Red Eagle, and at once proceeds to deal with him. As the Big Chief is judge and jury in one, the trial is a short one. Red Eagle is found guilty, and sentenced to a double death by hanging and shooting. The sentence is summarily carried out, "with cuieful atten tion to all elaborate details " , * » * * Apart from, this realistic incident, " The Pride of. the Prairie" is an interesting and typi ...

The Hapless Campers. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 15 January 1914

§ The Hapless Campers. § By SILAS SNKLL. There were three of them—Minnie, May, and Esther. Minnie was a retoucher at a metro politan photographer's. May was with Hustle and Gumm, in the millinery department, and Esther jigged a typewriter on her own ; that \s to say, she had a litfcle den of a room in a city building, with a brass plate on the door, and did jobbing work for small lawyers, am bitious am'ateur authors, dramatists, and others. Naturally, Esther put on literary airs. Nearly all freelance typewriters ao, and carried round volumes of Shaw, and Maeterlinck, and Strind berg, on the trains. Minni?, being in the game, so to speak, cultivated an artistic atmosphere. The artistic girl is a trifle slipshod, and her hat has something the appearance of a serious accident; but you could not disguise Minnie's prettiness even in a m'arket basket trimmed with a sprig of onions. May's forte was style. May's hats had always the Parisian touch, and May could dress better on less than any...

THE QUINLAN OPERA CO. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 15 January 1914

THE QUINLAN OPERA CO. There are many distinguished artists con nected with the above we'l-known company, who seldom appear before the footlights,; but whose work is equally as important, and materially aids in the successful production of each opera tive venture. Amongst these may be classed the producer, instrumentalists, orchestral con ductors, and others, without which no opera could be successfully staged. One of the. most important roles connected with all theatrical ventures is xliat of the or ganising secretary or press agent, who holds the responsible position of dealing with all press matters—work which is of a very deli cate character requiring singular and rare abili ties. Miss Agnes Murphy is the organising secre tary and press representative of the Q.'uinlan Opera Company. She is regarded also as one of the most able of lady journalists, and she enjoys the distinguished honour of being Madam9 Melba's biographer.

SPORTING Turf Flotsam and Jetsam. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 15 January 1914

Turf Flotsam asu! Jetsam. By "Omega/' Though a two-year-oid has not appropriated the Oakleigh Plate since Coil succeeded in 1896, juveniles promise to play a strong hand in this year's rich V.A.T.C. sprint race. Half a dozen two-year-olds have been nominated, including the crack performers, Traquette and Woorak, and well-known winners in Blague and Spica. Tra quette and Woorak have not yet met, but the forrji of both is very brilliant. Traquette has scored four wins and a third from five starts, while Woorak ran away with each of the two races he contested. The handicapper's task in bringing Traquette and Woorak together is by no means an enviable one. Prior to Coil's suc cess in the Oakleigh Plate, two-year-olds in Titan, Camoola, and Moorite proved equal to capturing that race. Moorite carried 8.0, and heat Hova, who a few weeks later asserted his merit by winning the Newmarket Handicap at Flemington. Racegoers assembled in large numbers at Aspendale Park on Saturday, when the spo...

financial. The, Vjctorian hanks have published their average returns for the concluding quarter of 1913. in practically all respects the summary reveals a satisfactory state of affairs generally, when the figures are set against those for earlier jeriods. The statements do not, as usual, include the averages of the Commonwealth Rank, that institution not heing obliged, appa rently, to do as do other banks in this par ticular respect. Deposits, at £45,761,102, are £475,334 less than at the end of December, 1912, the decline being accounted for principally by the shrinkage in Government deposits current and of £351,262 in Government deposits fixed, these movements being a result of the transfer of business to the Commonwealth institution. There were increases of £269,567 in the public current deposits, and of £3S,i71 jn the aggre gate. of the public fixed deposits, the net varia tion being as stated.
