FIGHT BETWEEN SHOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 19 January 1914
FIGHT- BETWEEN SHOWERS. Although willing to meet death by a sword thrust, the hero of 100 duels has shown that he objects very strongly to having wet feet. He is M. Rouzier Dorcieres, a man who has at his fingar ends all the rules and formalities of tho duel. One of- his'. chlief pleasures is to be master: of ceremonies at such meet ingos. His courage is undoubted, but v; of feet or dirty boot he cannot stand. He had had'some small difference about a medical questioii,: and it was decided to settle the quarrel by an appea'l to the sword. A meetingT was arranged, and at eleven o clock:: punctually the ne mnies faced one another 'on guard. Rapier points threatened-that aatt er ed nothing;.but the sky was grey in:a proniised rain and that was errouso They set to: fiercely, so fiercely tht ther swords were bei?t, and new ontes hand to be substituted..@ The sun shone dull, and :t ait t ihe rain came, alter -o minutes of: fierce combat.

POTTING BUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 19 January 1914
POTTING BUTTER. Poteting butter is quite a simple muat ter'. For homue use, your best p!an is to use small iars ifS possible, holding what you can makeo at one time. Thls, however, is not e-sential. For pot ting it, you a ill require to use a little more salt than is usual, say, 1lb for every 121b of butter, also use about half an ounce of 12i lb of butter. Do not use more than this. As soon as the butter is made, scald your jars or tins thoroughly, using a little com mon washing sMod i n the boiling water Drain the jar. and then nack dhe but ter tight!y, after which, sprinkle a thin layer of sal. on top. Melt a little butter and pour it on top of tho salt, and as soon as thiis s cool, tie down the jar wit h parchment paper, or common paper and whit.o of egg. If you have not enough butter to fill a jar at once, follow the same instruc tions with regard to salting and pre servatives. Pat the butter very lightly with a level suriace and pour on top of about an ich of strong brine. mad...

DUKE AND MAIN LEADS CONSOLS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 19 January 1914
DUKE AND MAIN LEADS CONSOLS. The leading wash drives at the Duke and Main Leads Consols are showing a decided improvement. Some of the drives being rather wet to make the necessary headway, they will be left for a coup!e of weeks to drain, while drives will intersect the wash higher up, which will mini mise the cost of operating on a large block of the lead which has been proved to be payable. Going down the lead the north main underlevel is within 500ft. of where an excellent prospect of gold was obtained from a surface bore. At this point there is a big belt of auriferous country, and payable wash is confidently au ticipated. The wash trending in this direction is also improving. It is considered by practical men that the sinking of a large air shaft would be advantageous, It would answer three purposes-the lowering of men and timber near the centre of pre sent operations, and also provide a good upeast. The cost would be light, and would obviate the neces sity as at present, for ...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 19 January 1914
Ma2.Y thoughtful LiberalsE, looking beneath the surface of recent events, are beginning to seriously ask them selves wherein lie the weakness and the needs of Liberalism. It is a healthy indication of betterment of a great cause. It is the initial stage in reform of method for achieving a high ideal. One such inquirer dis covers the prime effect in the desire to impose Conservative manacles upon Liberal members of Parliament, thus compelling allegiance to planks that are obsolete and fit only to be labelled as exhibits in a museum of antiquities. Their timber is riddled with the white ant oi Toryism. Under no circumstances can they support the burden of progressive Liberalism; and, so far as the younger generation of Australians is concerned, there will be no trail of the experiment. Another vital weak ness, he discerns, is " the dearth of "young men in the Liberal ranks." It is a weakness we have repeatedly pointed out; and we have indicated the reason for it though without appreci...

TIIE OVAL PLAY, WIN FOR RAILWAYS. In their first innings M aryborough made 105, and Railways, with 7 wickets down for 79 runs, had 27 to make to win. The not out men Baker (9) and M'1asters (0) faced Davey and Haberle, and .ithour any addition to the score the left bander clean-bowled Baker. Davey then had the fine average of 5 for . and S were down for 79. It looed as though Maryborough weregoing to pull the match out of the tire, when Morton came in and kept ant end up while M'Masters took risks and hit hard. The policy was suc cessful, for the score mounted quickly. A loose one from Davey M'Masters got fairly on to and hit into the stand, while he also got a couple of nice fours. He had just hit the stroke that took the score paet Maryborough's, and made him 24, when he was snapped up by Yonulden off Haberle. It was a creditable effort for a tail-end batsman. Kelly came in and scored off two balls before Morton, who had only umade one scoring stroke, was bowled by Davey, and they...
