TURF TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
TURF TOPICS_. It is quite -surprising what a large amount of good racing metropolitan furfites can assimilate. After the racing- at Caut field on Boxing day, the meeting at Moo nee Valley on the following day might not unreasonably have been expected to show a slight falling off in numbers, but no thing of the kind eventuated, and MIr. A. V. Hiskens had the. pleasire of welcom ing a very large attendance-one of the very best-thus proving the popularity of the Valley. Fields were remarkably good, and altogether the enterprise .pof the encr getic secretary in giving 1000 sovs. in stakes inet with its deserved reward. Back crs fared much better than they had done oi late, three favorites and a second favor ite materialising. Some comment was caused by the victory of Crucis and Yeneda in the Two-year-old Handicap and Valley Handicap rcspectively, after their failures; on the previous, day at Caulfield, but the Stipendiary Stewards took no action. But in regard to Crucis, the distance at...

The 'separate victorie df Athenic Woorak,' Quair Burn and Yeneda .ast week prove what a great Sire M?. J._ O'Keeffe's horse would have turned out. 'I'raq.uair -was acknowledged to have been. one of the fastest, if not actually. the fastest, 2-year old of his time, and he .transmits his won derful pace to his progeny in a striking degree, for it is questionable if we have ever seen faster 2-year-olds than-Traquette and 'Wioorak.

IDEALS IN POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
IDEAL8 IN POLITICS. " Dr. Page, .' American ambassador, speaking at the Shceficld ·rutlhr's feast, said thnt certain English'journalists: had alluded to the President of the United States as hlvfing an ideaiist programme. ie ac cepted the designation that the Piesident was an idealiht and the Republie was an idealist Republic. In the most Unwholesome quarter o.f the whole world-the Isthmus of Panama-it was nothing but an idealist. programnme which led the American people first to con quer disease there, and make it more healthy than the. cities of the British Em pire, and then to put men there to build that great canal for the commerce of the whole world. . What did the cost matter ? It '\as an ideal, a dream of the ages, that the two oceans should be united, and when an ideal took the mind of American people a hun dred million pounds was nothing.
LITERATURE [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
"More Australiani Songs zor Young and Old," with words by Annie R. Rentoul, music by Georgette Peterson, and illus trations by Ida I. Rentouxl-Outhwaite, fur nish an admirable and seasonable presenta.' tion. The combination is conducive to ex-. cellent results, for there is a r:;-emer. and delicacy shown in all the : .. treatment. The wording of the ". a.. distinctively Australian, is market = genial humor, the music is quaintly and appropriately interpretive of the senti ment,; and the illustrations declare an artistic quality both in conception and drawing. As presented by the pub lishers, Messrs. Geo. Robertson and Co., a more delightful gift book could hardly be imagifed. "The River of Stars," by Edgar Wallace, is an. exciting story of adventure, with a novelty of incident which awakens interest.

A NEW DISEASE. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
A NENlDISEASE. ;. It is not often that one symnpatbises witih the first victim of a new disease. As a rule you feel that theie is something conceited about the 'creature. If she wanted to be ill, she might have been content to be ill in .a decent, old-fashioned ,way. What is ,good enough for you ought to be good enough for het. But dcor Madame X., whom the, Paris. hospitals diagnose as a sufferer from "tele rihono.phobia," we have that fellow-feeling wvhihc makes us wondrous kind. When the telephone bell rings she is "seized with a sort of anguish, which petri fies her till she learns who it is ,that is tele phoning." Aknd so say many of us. The point in which we differ from Madame X. is tlha.t our anguish does not cease even when we have found out who is at the other end-if we ever do. When. Madame X. has to reply, "her voice eptirely changes, and she is almost incapable of articulating anything." Now, if you come to'think of it, practically every user of the telephone suffers from...
CONDITIONS IN MEXICO. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
CONDITIONS IN MEXICO. The population of Mexico is roughly esti mated at about 18,000,000. Out of these there are fully 12,000,000 Indians. Out of the remainder tihere are about 2,000,000 whites and 4,000,000 of a mixed race. The -ndians are tl:e best laboring element. They are not likethe wild Indians of the Unit ed States and Canada; quite the contrary. as the descendants of the patient, laborious, intelligent Aztec race, they are very thrifty, industrious and frugal. They learn very quickly. The children go to school where there are opportunitnes, and at nine or ten-they already begin to help their parents. If well treated they :are easily. managed. They are a very healthy race, not. subject to illness; and age scarcely seems to affect them. The women are more industrious thawr irr any-other raced and they will carry~.abaly or- two, one fastened in a shawl in* front and another on their back, and thus walk a distance of many miles, to accompafny their husbands to market.

THE WOOL REGION OF FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
THE WOOL REGION OF FRANCE. This populous northern region of France comprises the towns of Lille, Croix, Tour coing, Roubaix, with Dunkirk as the port. The last named, at the entrance of the Channel, with a population of 51,000, has good accommodation for all classes of vessels, while the outer harbor gives good anchorage on a sand bottom. Twenty eight feet of water are in the gully at spring tide. The docks have plenty of quayage, and a new shed has just been opened for Aus tralian wool in one of the Freycinet docks, while a further annex is in course of erection and will be ready by the end of the present year. There is a considerable space for further extensions, which, when carried out, will double the present capacity. It is anticipated that cold storage accommodation will be provided in the near future close to the wool shed, and will tend to increase the traffic of the port considerably. The imports amount to 3,100,000 tons annually, the principal beingi wool, 200,000 tons; ce...

A FAMOUS SHIP BUILDER. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
A, FAMOUS SHIP BUILDER. At the end of the year just closing Lbrd Pirrie was to retire from the active loan agement of the great ship building firm of Harland and Wolff, and will be succeeded by his brother-in-law, the Right 1-Ion. A. M. Carlisle. His Lordship will, however, retain his financial interest in the firm, with which his nanie will always be inse parably associated. During the past fifteen years Lord Pirrie has also shouldered im mense responsibilities in the, shipping world, and it is understood his intention is to retire also from active work in connec tion with one or two of the companies of which he is a director. ].t would not be surprising to see his Lordship, with acdi tional tune at his disposal, take a more promminen part in punelc airairs, and it is quite possible that he map at some not dis tant date be selected to hold an important oftice under the GoverLment.

INTER-STATE, ENGLISH AND FOREIGN RACING. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
INTER-8TATE, EN?LISH AND FOREIGN, RACING. The A.J:C. Summer meeting took .place at Randudwick on Friday afternoon, in fine, warm weather... There was a large attend ance, estimated at 45,000 people, including the State Governor and Lady Strickland. The withdrawal on the course of Man dowa, Kilmeadon, Phosphorus and Tar tanus left a collection of 21 to dispute possession of the Summer Cup 6take, and such a field was quite big enough for all purposes. As usual, N.S.W. played up at the post, and ended in being placed on the outside. In the ring Matouree was a solid favorite. The sensation of the betting, perhaps, was Cora dil, who advanced from a long price to 10 to 1, though two points shorter was at. one time tne best on offer. Limelight was also a very steady order; and others well backed were Crown Grant, Adgio and Pongo; but those who had invested their money on their various good things in the ring had to be satisfied to look on at the victory of an outsider and extract what cons...

AROUND CLARENCE POINT. There are experts of standing who fore tell a prosperous future for the apple indus try in the Tamar Valley, northern Tas mania. An examination of the land and of orchards already in bearing supports the optimistic statements made.

OIL CONCESSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
UIL UONCESSIONS. The United States has raised a loud out cry over the endeavors of British capital ists to secure an "oil monopoly" in the South American Republic of Colombia. It has been frequently stated in the United States press without contradiction that one of the chief motives of President Wilson's notification that he will not recog nise the validity of any act by the new Mexican Congress is his conviction that General Huerta is planning to recoup him self financially by granting vast concessions. to British oil interests. It is now re:prted that the "Colombian grant will be fought by the United States State department for the same reason that President Wilson so strongly opposed the Mexican concession."
