UNBLEMISHED HEIGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 25 March 1914

UNBLEMISHED HEIGHTS. Sensitive lovers of nature who are perpetually in arms against commer cial vandalism will be relieved to learn —on the authority of Sir Ray Lankes ter—that the wonderful mountain scenery of Switzerland is practically unaffected by the operations of rail way engineers. Writing in the London "Daily Tele graph" recently he said: "These moun tain railways fill me with gratitude and satisfaction. When the Jungfrau railway was first projected, some ath letic Englishmen with heavy boots and ice-axes protested against the 'desecration' of regions till then ac cessible only to them and to me and others, of. our age .and strength. They declared that" the scenery injured by the railway and its irou^s of 'tourists.' As well might they pro test against the desecration caused by the crawling of fifty house-flies on the dome of St. Paul's! These mountains and glaciers are so vast and men with their railways so small that the latter are negligible in the presence of the former....

BANANAS AND TOMATOES DIET IN WINTER. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 25 March 1914

BANANAS AND TOMATOES DIET IN WINTER. Neal street, Long-acre (says "The DailyTelegraph" o£ January 9),is not an attractive thoroughfare. Narrow, dark and cheerless, frequently crowded and noisy, such is this passage connecting >Govent-garden with the aristocratic neigliborhood of Bloomsbury. Yet at times the place is interesting to those who like to study many places of .Lon don life. In the little street may he seen, at times, hundreds of costermon gers, intent on securing supplies of fruit. It' is an anxious, busy throng; each member of the fraternity waiting impatiently to be served. As a rule it is in the summer that this rialto is most thickly populated, that being the season when the demand for fruit is greatest. Seldom throughout the winter months are scenes of -extraordinary activity witnessed in that obscure corner, but the beginning of the present week proved to be a notable exception. Early on Monday morning Neal street was crowded with men whose facial expres sions bet...

PAMPERED ANIMALS PIGS MANICURED. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 25 March 1914

PAMPERED ANIMALS PIGS MANICURED. Live sheep, wearing what appeared to be linen blankets to keep their wool clean, were among, the many unfamiliar features yesterday of the exhibits at the Royal Agricultural 'Hall, which is being rapidly turned into an enormous farmyard and cattle shed for the open ing of the annual Smithfield show by the King on Monday (says "The Daily Ex press," December G). The remarkable manner in which candidates for Smithfield honors pre pare for their ordeal is disclosed in the following interesting article:— MAKING A CHAMPION. Townsmen who go to Smithfield to | see their prime beef or bacon in the ori I ginal seldom give much thought to the ! care with which the beasts on show are . selected and fed. Prize animals are not picked up haphazard and then ' merely fattened for the show, as no championships would be won that way. The owner of a pedigree herd looks over his animals carefully when they are still young, and selects those which I seem most likely to fa...

CRICKET. TRAFALGAR v. MOE. (Bv Spectator). The above clubs met on the Trafal gar ground on Saturday last. Neither club wag fully represented, the home team being without Mclnnes, while the visitors were minus Jones and Stagg. The Moe skipper won the toss, and promptly decided to bat, Halden and Verey opening to the bowling of Jim Hogan and Donovan. Runs came slowly until Verey was unfortunately run out, the first wicket falling at 11. Lush was next, and quietly tapped the first ball he. received into Gosney's hands at mid off. P. Varcoe played well for 11, and was bowled with a " shooter" from Donovan. None of the other batsmen reached double figures, with the exception of Halden, who played a sound, defensive innings for 20 (not out), carrying his bat right, through the innings .for the second time this season. The Trafalgar bowl ing was much below its usual stand ard. The fielding was good, and Errington showed to advantage behind the wicketB. J. Hogan and Errington opened for Tra...

Willow Grove. The calico ball held at Willow Grove on Wednesday, 11th inst., in aid of the Sale Hospital, was a great success, the hall accom modation being taxed to its uttermost. There was no doubt about the living euchre being the means of adding to the attendance. Just btfore refreshments, 32 players took the floor, all being dressed in calico coats, the "kings" and "queens" wearing crowns and carrying crooks (designed and made by Mrs Williams, ably assisted by Mr and Mrs Puls\ '1 he players provided a very pleasing sight, and went through the game in good style. The euchre alone will add 205 yards of calico to the quantity to be forwarded to the Hospital. This, no doubt, will be much appreciated by those who will need it. The music for the dancing, which was very good, was gratuitously provided by Mr C. Webb (assisted by Messrs Gardiner and Coleman), to whom all praise is due, not forgetting our worthy friend, Mr B.
