THE WIND OF HOPE [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 13 March 1914

THE WIND OF HOPE (By James Douglas, in "The Daily News and Leader.") Swinburne saw and sang "A Vision of Spring: in Midwinter." Happy is the man who can always forget the past and the present and ilx his gaze on the future. For him the' darkest night aches with a future star. For him there Is a budding .morrow in every midnight. For him there is nothing irrevocable. Happiness is the art of looking forward. The other day I was walking on the wet sand along .the chilly merge of the grey December sea. lly mood was cold and dark. The remembrance of suffer ing lay heavy on my mind. I had no strength of joy in me to struggle with the harpies of gloom tearing at my heart. Suddenly I felt on my face a little breeze blowing off the waves. It was like the caress of an angel. There was something animate in its poignant passion of tenderness. It brought me the message of miles of strong salt sea. It set every nerve tingling and shud dering with delighted life. As the little wind from the sea pl...

TOWER OF LONDON GHOSTLY APPARITIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 13 March 1914

TOWER OF LONDON GHOSTLY -..APPARITIONS. ; - • (By a "Citizen""'in "The Daily Tele-" graph.") At times, some-will tell you, when a wind whistles about the turrets and barred gates of the Tower of London, and out of a break in storm-clouds the moon peers down, searching: with a silvery light the baileys and sally-ports and prisoners' walks guarded by these high walls, the dark shadow of an axe steals across the blood-soaked plot of ground on Tower green, and stands gaunt and erect, silhouetted against the Norman keep. The tide lapping the river wharves, unseen though but a few yards distant, the occasional stir of the shipping, and the inexplicable sounds of a great city add to the mysteries of the night. This should be a wracking place for nerves. Eight centuries of England's story are isolated within the Tower's encircling walls. If any sub stance there be in the belief that dis tracted ghosts revisit the scenes of their great sorrows, assuredly upon no spot on earth do they congreg...

EMPIRE HARBORS [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 13 March 1914

EMPIRE HARBORS Lord Pirrie has submitted to the Do- J millions Royal Commission an interest ing memorandum on the development of Imperial and other harbors from the point of view of shipowners and ship builders (says "Tiie Daily Telegraph" I of January S). He entirely adheres to the views he expressed to the Select 'Committee on steamship subsidies, in 1902, as to the desirability of providing, deep approaches to the chief harbors of the Bmpii'c. Alluding to develop ments which have taken place since' then, Lord Pirrie' refers' to the. "admir able scheme" in process of execution in the Port of London, but expresses the ."fear that at^the present rate of progress it will be quite inadequate by the time it is completed. With regard to other large ports, he mentions that the entrance of Port Phillip, at -Melbourne, is steadily, if slowly, being deepened, but concerning two other important trade centres, namely, the St. Lawrence and the River Plate, there is little progress to record.

LOST GOLF BALLS [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 13 March 1914

LOST GOLF BALLS Whose property is a lost golf bull? Keccnt magisterial decisions on the point (says "The Daily News and 'Leader" of December 2V) have been somewhat mixed, and Judfje Parry has a witty summing-up of some of them in the January number of "The Corn hill" magazine. "A fjolf ball, I take it," he writes, "is the subject of ownership, although tlis ownership is of a very llccting and pre carious nature. "The golf bail washed up on the sea shore and found as you take your Sun-1 day stroll upon the beach I take to be a^Wreck de Mer. being- undoubtedly in the last instance cjectum maris. "Personally," he confesses, "the kind of ball that 1 tee up at the tenth at Llandudno or the sixth at Newquay, or at any seaside hole, is a wreck be fore it starts, but once driven the ship- I wreck is generally complete. Ami when sitcli goods are cast upon the land by the sea and left there within some county, it seems that they belong to the King by his prerogative as Lord of the Narrow Seas...

'^elrolars and men of sci ence have tried their hands at solving it to produce, all sorts of wonderful theories as- to what happened and how It happened. We all love a murder mystery. Whatever else you may think of the book, there is no lack of the mys terious in the tale of Edwin Drood. To publish all the secrets, there was a wonderful attempt last night. The Dickens Fellowship put John Jasper upon his trial for the murder. The judge was Mr G. K. Chesterton and the fore man of the jury Mr Bernard Shaw. King's Hall was the court of assize. Witnesses and officers of the court put themselves into the picturesque habil merits of the "sixties." Side whiskers and long hair, chignons and poke bon nets adorned the scene. The gentleman of the jury, howev...

TEACHING OF GEOGRAPHY STANDARD RISING [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 13 March 1914

TEACHING OF GEOGRAPHY STANDARD RISING Dr J. Scott Keltic, secretary of I lie Royal Geographical Society, spoke en "Thirty Years' Progress in Geograp hical Education" in his presidential address to the Geographical Associa tion, on Saturday (says "The Daily Telegraph" on January 5). The asso ciation met in the Jehangier Hall at the University o£ London. It was. Dr Keltic pointed out, just thirty years since the Royal Geographical Society began that crusade on behalf of the improvement and elevation of geo graphy and a better recognition of the subject in education of all grades which had had some noteworthy results, in cluding the foundation of the Geo graphical Association, which he con gratulated on the prosperous and flour ishing stage it had reached and the' general utility of the work it was ac complishing. Thirty years ago text books were little more than dreary lists of ; names, and it was no wonder that geography was rejected" and de spised by the universities. -Though much r...

TREATMENT OF ENGLISH ORCHARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 13 March 1914

TREATMENT OF ENGLISH ORCHARDS. Aocording to tho statistics published (says tlio Mark Lano Express) there were in England last year 2-14,831 acres classed as orchards. "We are sorry to say <vo cannot say of "cultivated orchards, because the mistaken idea seems to have prevailed to a great cx thatl orchards and pastures can got along alright without attention or as sistance; that kind Natu ro ,has en dowed them with the poiver of con tinuing to extract nourishment from a soil sucked dry by moans of crop ping. Tho result of such a paradox is visible in tho povorty stricken con dition of many orchards and pastures. It is pleasant to record that a change for tho hotter is gradually taking place. It is being recogniscd that when fruit troes of a good cJas.4 are grown, and sprayed and primed, orch ards bccomei a source of profit not to be despised. It is essential that tho trees, if expeoted to produce abund ant crops of good fruit, should ho sup plied with nourishment, to compe...

PRICES AND WAGES FOOD PRICES INDEPENDENT OF PAY [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 13 March 1914

PRICES AND WAGES FOOD PIMCICS INDEPENDENT OF PAY (By L. G. Chiozza Money, in "Daily News and Leader.") Staring out at mo from the columns of a daily newspaper, published as the considered utterance of a member of 'Parliament, I see a statement to the effect that iC the wages of British work men were doubled to-morrow, the change would be of no value to them because the prices of commodities would rise in the same proportion, and there fore they would be no better off than before. It is necessary to tal<e serious note of this statement, because I find it is the expression of an opinion which Is widely held up and down the United Kingdom at the present time. This opinion has gained ground because of the reaction in prices which lias taken place during the last half generation. Because that rise in prices has can celled the value of the rise in wages in the same period, people have jumped to the conclusion that higher wages and higher prices are necessary concomi tants of ea...
