VOLTURNO DISASTER CAPTAIN'S ORDEAL [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 23 January 1914

VOLTURNO DISASTER CAPTAIN'S ORDEAL "Within five minutes of the fire being reported to the captain flames reaching to a height of thirty or forty feet were leaping out of the hatchway leading to No. 1 hold." This statement, made yesterday at the Board of Trade in quiry, held at the Caxton Hall, into the disaster to the Volturno, illustrated the extraordinary nature of the tra gedy which those in charge of the ship had to face (reports the "Daily Ex press" of November 27). This appalling suddenness in the de velopment of the fire was due in a large measure to the inflammable na ture of the cargo, which was described by Mr Acland, K.C., who represented the Board of Trade, as follows: "In No. 1 hold there were stowed drums and barrels of various chemi cals, and tar oil and other oils. Above that were rags. Above them peat moss, and above that straw-covered bottles, so that when the fire started there was material for making the astonishing blaze which resulted. "In the second hold there...

TWO WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 23 January 1914

TWO WOMEN. From Mrs. M. Darcy, 163 St. Leonard's-road, Ascot Vale, Vic toria. " Some years ago, I began to suf fer from various liver and kidney troubles, arising no doubt from a severe cold I contracted about that time, and which nearly prostrated me. From thence on I experienced acute pain in the back and sides, and under the shoulder blades. The slightest pressure on the liver would cause me intense pain. I suffered like this for a long while without any prospect of relief, I having tried so many re medies without avail. As a last re source I decided to try a course of WVarner's Safe Cure, which had been highly recommended to me by friends who had derived great benefit from taking the medicine. After taking a few bottles of Warner's Safe Cure my health improved rapidly, and I was soon effectually cured and free from all the pain and discomfort which has assailed me for so many years." From Mrs. Eva Sharrer, 24 Hanover street, Windsor, Vic. "Some years ago I was taken with violent...

MOHAMMED'S FOLLOWERS [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 23 January 1914

MOHAMMED'S FOLLOWERS The recent conversion of an English peer to Mohammedanism is a remin der that the Mohammedans in this country are sufficiently numerous and influential to support several places of worship (says the "Westminster Gaz ette").

The Great Montamor Case. CHAPTER I. In the Australian Bush. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 23 January 1914

The Great Montamo0 Gage. By ALICE M. DIEHIL, Authoress of "The Knave of Hearts," CHAPTER I. In the Australian Bush. Jim Gilbert felt a thrill of anxiety, of anticipation, as he walked his heated mare slowly among the clumrs of gum trees, and, emerging into a brief patch of waste land, halted to gaze at the plain sloping away below. There, beyond the eucalyptus wood, lay the farmhouse containng his be loved Netta, the only child Nathan Grey, owner of the big sheep run, where he and his friend, Charles Daunce, had cast in their lot as co squatters a year before, when tired of their last sheep-farming venture to gether. He was a comely, broad, fair Englishman, paler and somewhat less burly after a recent fall while working in the Mount Berry diggings-a fall which had rendered him unconscious for some weeks, and which now sent him back to the farm to recruit. He "as still dazed and weak, and his thoughts seemed to travel round and round a subject rather than to grasp and deal with it as...

He was a member of the Insurance Committee, and there were 100,000 people in Dublin for the health of wh...

DISTRICT NEWS. NAMBROK. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 27 January 1914

DISTRICT NEW'. • NAMBROK. Hfarcesting operations are almost finished. and on many of the farms the threshing machines have complet ed what the harvester left undone. The wheat crops on the whole are very much below former years' aver ages, but some good yields have been reported. Barley crops have yielded very well, and crops of oats which were threshed also yielded well. Not a great deal of oats, however, has been threshed. as the majority had to he cut on the green side to avoid the cat erp)illar. On the lighter country at the back of Nambrok a very good sample of oats has been produced. The paddock of English rye grass which Mr. WViddis threshed yielded over inl) Ulgs of heavy seed: and on Mr. Nixon's property a paddock of Duck?ill barley gave 14 bags to the acre of prime heavy grain. The station at KIilmany presents a ve(ry busy aplpearance, many trucks of grain being sent away daily.

OUR SYDNEY LETTER. The Worm Turns. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 27 January 1914

OUR SYDNEY LETTER. The Worm Turns. Even a worm will turn if it is trod den on. The taxpayer may be of less importance than the worm in the eyes of legislators who are "out " to "do the grand" with his money. Never theless, even thle taxpayer will turn sometimes; and he is turning now. A meeting of business men, held in Syd ney the other day, called on all per sens who are liable to income tax to refuse to furnish returns, or to pay assessments until a "'reasonably fair" Income Tax has been provided. the Department of Taxation recon structed, and the injustice which has been pl)erpetrated under the present defective measure rectilied. Acting on the advice of the Commissioners, the Government forced through Parlia ment an Act which can only be de scribed as a botch and a bungle of the most disgraceful character. Under it, absentees for the most part escape altogether, whilst some residents have paid as much as 1/4 in the £. The Act is a monument of stupidity and incompetence, and it i...

A "NEW" TREATMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 27 January 1914

A "NEW" TREATMENT. Our Sydney correspondent writes: -Gastro-enteriti,, which is the scien title name for the results of neglect and injudicious feeding of infants, is making great ravages among babies. An aggravating cause is probably to be found in the oppressively close hot weather which has prevailed during the last few weeks. A "new" treat menllt Is announced, namely, treatment at the homes of the unhappy little pa tients. Somewhat tardily, it has dawned on responsible persons that infants cannot possibly receive in a public hospital the personal care and attention which their helpless condi tion demands. Who shall say that me dical "science'" is not making pro gress in this twentieth century'! The progress may be slow; but that might be a reason for expecting it to be sure, were it not that every announcemenlt of a " new " treatnment proclainms tile tailure of that whIch was previously in voglue, and which, ill its tilme, was '"ew ' also, and was pxobabiy herald ed with as grea...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 27 January 1914

It Is with- regret and compunction that we have to admit that, as regards the great question of centralisation or decentralisation, we have been wrong all the time, and the time is a long timel ever since the first num ber of ''The Gippsland Mercury" was published. -It is, we are gravely informed by a writer in the "Age," a most "pernicious" thing to set up a cry of Country against Town, or vice versa. The Town has made un told sacrifices for the Country; it has built for it railways which did not pay. and waterworks which were ab solute failures: and performed a thousand acts for the basely ungrate ful Country, for which it never gets a xword of thanks! And, according to this veracious scribe, the Town never gets a pennyworth of benefit for the heroic sacrifices it made for the pio neers who virtually took their 'ives into the wilderness, which. however. happened to be made to blossom as a rose by their exertions. May we ask then, where the ship ping and commerce of Melbourne would...

THE F.A.Q. STANDARD. HOW IT IS OBTAINED. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 27 January 1914

THE F.A.Q. STANDARD. HOW IT IS OBTAINED. The F.A.Q. standard for Victorian wheat was struck on Friday by the Corn Trade Sectional Committee of the Chamber of Commerce. To com mercial men this embodies the whole statement of the case. But to the general puiblic, most of them have no idea was f.a.q. means, the bare state ment is unmeaning. F.A.Q., then, stands for "Fair average quality.' For wheat runs in all shapes and sizes, from the large plump grain to the shrivelled aborted seed from :t bad crop, and from the quality which mills well- to that which does exactly the reverse. And as shippers can hardly specify that they want fat tr lean wheat, or wheat with fe' alien grains ii, or wheat full of chailf and rubbish, the F.A.Q. standard is strtc; ench-.year.-" The ceremony perfornt'd 'an lri la was therefore an annual tfai. i .: wheat varies fromn year to yeatr.
