THE FIRE ilEND On Friday morning last a fire broke out in a hay stack belonging to Mr Fred Shackleton on his pro perty near Thorpdale. Mr Shackle ton anc! his sssistants were just fin ishing up their morning duties, when their attention was drawn to the fire in the stack by a truck dri ver in the employ of Mr McColl, sawmiller, who happened to he passing at tlw time. A plentiful supply of water being available a strenuous fight was waged by many willing helpers who rapidly assem bled from the adjacent farms.

ADVANCE TRAFALGAR LITTLE THINGS WE NEED! [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 27 February 1914

ADVANCE TRAFALGAR UTTLH THINGS Wli NEED ! I There are many disadvantages that residents of country towns are called upon to suffer which town dwellers know little if anything at all about, and chief among these in towns which have 110 reticulation scheme, is the absence of a regular water supply in the summer months (when most it is needed) for the most ordinary of household purposes. I11 towns like Trafalgar the evil is also felt in many other ways -and chief of these is the great risk that the people are exposed to from the effects of contagious diseases which give 110 timely warning of their approach, or how long they are going to act the part of the un bidden guest. We may indeed feel ourselves leniently dealt with in this respect this summer when the "lively" state of the drains are taken into consideration. From the Criterion Hotel corner to the post office there is a melody of microbes which fairly puts the humming choruses of the Musical Society1 in the shade and against whi...

CRIME IN BURMA THREE CAUSES STATED. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 27 February 1914

CRIME IN BURMA THREE CAUSES STATED. Gloomy reports of crimc continue to come from India (says tlio "Westmin ster Gazette" of November ES). The judges of the Chief Court of Lower Burma, in a review of tlio past year's criminal justicc, say they regret that tlio prevalence of crime in the Lower Province is an "even more seri ous feature of the administration than it was in 1011," and cannot regard with equanimity the continuous increase in the number of reported cases of of fences. I They feel, however, that none of the remedies which have been suggested, wholly reach to the root of the disease. . The causes of crime arc mainly three poverty, disease, and low vitality, and ' dofectivo moral education. t In last year's report the judges indi cated their opinion that the moral sense 1 of the people was diminishing with the slackening of religious tics and obser I vances, that with the decay of ancient beliefs the Buddhist religion is losing « its moral sanction as an inspiring force i i...

EDUCATION BILL RELIGIOUS ASPECT May I be allowed once more to tres pass upon your space with regard to the religious aspect of the new. Educa tion Bill? (wrote Bishop I'Yodsham to "The Manchester Guardian," Decem ber 15), The Northern Counties Kduca tion League, as reported In "The Man chester Guardian" for December 11, ex- , pressed some concern lest the promised new education legislation should fall to meet the desires of Nonconformists upon this point; they expressed a hope that in "redressing old grievances now ones would not bo created by counten ancing the claims to a sectarian right of entry into schools during the period of compulsory education." All of us arc desirous of improving primary education in England, and of ending the deplorable religious difficul ties. These diflicultles many besides Nonconformists believe have been . largely due to narrowness on the part of Anglican school managers, but, on | tile other hand, many besides Anglicans think the situation has been a...

MR LARK1N JEERS Mr Larkin, in a speech at Cardiff yesterday (says "The Dally Express' on December 24), scoffed at Lord Aber deen, whom he described as the "head of the Dulbin Castle clique," Ho said: -Wo have nt the head of the Castle clique the Earl of Aberdeen, and his good lady, who set £25,000 a year, and who have no children to keep, so far I know. Their only function, so far as I can gather, Is calling meetings and having exhibitions. At the exhibitions they have lecturers, who are paid five and ten guineas, to show how to feed a family of seven on eight and a tanner a week. We have 104 employers in the city who have signed an agreement to lock out and starve any -who wish to belong to, or who associate with, the Irish Transport Workers' Union. The gravest light of the twentieth century is now being carried on in Dublin, and I appeal to working men and women in this country to give their assistance. The men of Dublin are in the trenches.

PAY OF CLERGY [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 27 February 1914

PAY OF CLERGY The Bishop of Salisbury (Dr Ridge way), in a statement on tho poverty of many of the clergy in his diocese, says there are a few parishes-ho is thankful that he is not the patron of any of them-in which tho incum bent's income is about 30/ a week. The difficulty was aggravated by the fact that nine out of every ten in cumbents who receive these starveling wages were burdened with enormous rectory houses and largo gardens, tho uplceep of which required moro than the income of the benefices. Shortly after ho came to Salisbury the bishop received a letter from a clergyman's wife, stating that they wero obliged to live in an enormous house; they could afford no' servants, and she (tho clergyman's wife) had to do all the work of the house; and at tho mo ment of writing they had no coals in the house.

TIME'S CHANGES NEW SPIRIT IN CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 27 February 1914

TIME'S CHANGES NEW SPIRIT IN CHURCH. Mr Athelstan Riley, tho well-known Anglican layman, writes a notable let ter from the Athcnrcum Club to "The Guardian" on the new spirit in the Church. I I was lunching: at the United Univer sity Club the other day, when a very ? youthful clergyman, in a white tie aiul low-cut waistcoat, sat down beside me. ; I mentally labelled my neighbor as <iuite obviously an extreme Broad Churchman, a follower, let us say, of the versatile and amusing Dean of Durham. I thought no more about him, and burled myself In my news paper. Presently a young layman, evidently a recent companion at one of the universities, sat down at his table. What was my astonishment to hear his greeting, " Have you seen Zanzibar's splendid letter?" Now let me point the moral of this little story. You publish this week a deplorable sc-rmon by tho Dean of Norwich on Prayer-book Revision. I will fasten upon only one sentence, and that shall be one where he doubt less fancie...

FISHERMAN'S FANCY [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 27 February 1914

FISHERMAN'S FANCY By Horace Hutchinson in "The ?West minster Gazette." A pleasant talc is related of an Inge nious gentleman who endeavored to tako advantage, for the more success ful catching of tho shy trout in a cer tain well-known chalk-stream, of the familiarity which the fish acquire with a human figure that they often see be side the river, and that Is associated with agrccnblo sensations, such as the sensation of dining well. Possibly tho very fact of this famili arity is not generally known; but it is a fact that is not to bo doubted, for it has been proved again and again, and may bo confirmed by a visit to tho nearest fish hatchery, that trout in the nursery know perfectly the. man, or tho men, who feed them. They will come right up to the surface, playing about, expectant of food, when these friendly figures are on the bank. On the other hand, If it be a stranger that approaches, they make off at once into their hiding-places. Nor docs it sulllcc for them that tho strang...
