The Man Who Dodged Work [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 17 January 1914
The Man who Dodged e ork. By Charles Phelps Cushing, in the E "Argonaut." ;It's frightfully bhrd to make some persons understand that when one of literature's vagrants has money enadgh l to last him into the middle of Jranui ary he 'continues to be rich until he'8s poor again. When I'm poor I chase work, take on any sort of hack writing, r from interviews to encyclopaedias, but when I'm rich I dodge it. The harder I pursue; the more desperately I have t to flee later on. Or I should say,; ra ther, that is the way things used to be t in the days when I was ashamed of my soul and afraid to fling capital back in t the publisher's teeth. As you shall see. A month ago I looked at my bank- r book and with intense gratification die- t covered that the balance had reached the unprecendented high water mark of 500 dollars. * That was enough to e change my whole attitude towards ex- it istence. From that time forth until my , funds shall sink to zero again I am h rich, and despise to recognis...
HISTORY OF THE SAW. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 17 January 1914
HISTORY OF THE SAW. The earlest tool that has been traced in Fwyntian history is the san'. It was found first in the form of a notched bronze knife in the third dynasty., or shout five thousand years before the Christian era. and was followed in the fourth and fifth dynasties hr large. toothed saws. which were used by car penters: hut there are no dated sroci Teons until the seventh century before the Christian era, when the Assvrians used iron saws. The first knives on record were made out of flint, and were, in fn?t, saws with minnut teeth. They probably were used for entting op animals, as the teeth would breank away even on soft wood. Rasns, which are hut a form of saw, were first made -of sheet4 of bronze onnhed and coiled round, but the Assvrians in the sov enth century used the straight ross 'made of iro similar to the modern type, Wife: The doctor eays I need , change of climate..

SOME SALUTATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 17 January 1914
coMrE GALUTATIONU. The prostration and' the salam, sal. utations that many Otientals use -are only more pronounoed forms of the bow. So there is a connection between the embrace, so common-in civilised countries, and the greeting of a mem ber of the Koiari tribe of British New Guinea, who, in saluting a missionary placed one arm abou this neck. and stroked him under the chin. Among the Masai and the Ukerowe it is a mark of respect to greet an ac quaintance or a stranger by spitting at him. Almost as strange is the cus tom ascribed to the Tibetans of putting out the tongue by way of salutation. Rubbing noses is quite common; the Burmese and many tribes of Eskimos, Laplanders, and M3alays do so. Stranger than any of those customs is the weeping salutation that has been observed among Central South Amer ican Indians. This form of greeting occurs too in the Andaman slands New Zealand, and Polynesia. A Psor tugueso explorer thus describes the cus tem as he saw it used among a tribe of So...

MR WATT GRATIFIED. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 17 January 1914
.MR WATT GRATIPEEDI,: "I am very gratified with:the re suit of. -the three - Ministerial.: ele&-. tions," said the. Prenier (Mr .Watt)' after the declaration of the polls. " I never had the slightest fear at any stage of the elections," he con tinued, "that either my two col leagues or myself would be. defeated if popular interest were excited in the contests .. At one time it looked as if MrIHutchinson would have a hard run, but the result shows that the people of the North-west appreciate, effective and sincere service, and the reward which it brings. " The Opposition which Mr . Mac kinnon and I had to face was of a to tally. different' character. It was the usual venomous attack of. the Labor party, which will never allow Liberals holding Liberal seats in. the metro politan arel. to rest. Incessant . at tack, with the object of wearing.. men down, is apparently the Labor policy. "However, thle general results of the three colntests, I think, ' conclusively prove that .the...

General (\Mr Mackinnon), and the Min ister for Water Supply and Agricul ture (Mr IIutchinson)-were all re turned at the by-elections on Thursday by substantial majorities.

A POPULAR NOVELIST. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 17 January 1914
A POPULAR NOVELIST. n By Fred M.;White. P Machin puts the blame on to the dditor of the Arena; and- the latter f, :oxiplains that -he .was grossly- de-. eit-ed. Now, the Arena is an exceed- n ngly important jdurnal, and, as every- h aoda knows, carries great weight with people of intelligence.. It; is a six- P penny weekly, arid-devotes a good deal of: its space to the better fiction. So therefore it cannot be assumed for I a moment that Cruchley, the editor, 5 allowed himself to be made a party to c a deliberate -'fraud- on the -British r public. t The fiction particularly favoured by t the' 'Arena :belongs largely to tntT cameo type -exquisitely, polished' sketches and clear-cut" emotions and t the like.

STATEMENT BY MR BONAR LAW UNIONIST PARTY'S PLEDGE. LONDON, Thursday Night. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 17 January 1914
8 ATE.MENT U1Y MR BONAR L JW UNIONIST PARTY,'S PLEDGE. LONDON, Thursday Night. Mr Bonnr Law, lender of the Uionionit paIrt, ino a speech to-nihlt, declared that the situation. in .lstitr was more seribus thnn the Government or the country realised. It was, he said, developing inevitably to civil war, which would shatter the fabric of the national existence. Conversa tions had taken place ' between the party leaders, but without result. The Government desired a peaceful solu tion, but the conditions under which it held office made that impossible. If the Government continued he did not see how the difficulty could be decided without bloodshed. Mr Bonar Law concluded by saving that the Unionist party was pledged to support Ulster. " With the help of the Almighty, we intend to keep that pledge," he said.

A body of strikers stopped a light engine at Grekville, near Durban, yes terday, and maltreated and carried off the fireman.

The control olti cer had the signalman, whose signals first held up the engine, arrested and summarily court-martialled. The man was found guilty, and sentenced to 12 months' hard labor. He is the first railway man to be convicted under martial law since the present trouble began.
