DOCTORS' MOTOR-CARS. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 22 January 1914
DOCTORS' MOTOR-CABRS. Some time ago a chauffeur in the town of Tours was foolish enough to run over two policemen. Whereupon the mayor of the city issued a decree fixing the speed limit. of all motore within the pre incts of the city at six and a'half mllea an hour-a speed which would give even the fattest policeman or councillor. a sporting chance of escape. The doctors of the city addressed a petition to the mayor requesting that their motors of necessity and mercy should be exempt from the provisions of his decree. Tihe councillors held an extraordinary meet ing, at which, after a heated debate, they rejected the doctors' demand, on this, among other grounds, that "we do inot see our way to permitting doctors, in addi tion to the other means which they possess and which we cannot control, to kil their fellow-citicens by running over them." Not the matter and still less the manner of this mayoral pronouncement are rolishied by ths good doctors of Tours. = m m

POETRY THOUGHTS. W. FRANCIS. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 22 January 1914
POETRY ----+--- THOUGOIHTS. W. FtANCIS. Fleeting is tie day, iaraening the hour, When I must say goon-bye To thee-in thy bower. Far the world and wide; Liberty to fight; And thy dear languid eyes FKor me-weep to-night. Weeping as -the sundew, Shadows o'er thy heart, And pleauing looks divine That sting-as we part. Sobbing as the sea, Thinking aof the past: I wonder is it true That love-cannot last. Battling on the deep, Life-sport in the game; Careless how the end; Death calls-all the same. Lying in the night Gone the peaceful hour Recollections thronging A girl-and a bower. Waters wild betweens, Who is there to know ? Wonder will tile spirits To -lher-let me go. Fading is my star, Night looms wild ahead; Beryl-blue eyes-wee p not XV en I-lovera, cý Softly lay me there, - Where the shadows fall, Where the silver wattles. Know two-that is all KissIng you-good-bye Forever-lion the sleep; And Beryl-blue eyes- tret not For me-do not weep!

FURS PRESERVED BY COLD. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 22 January 1914
- FUES PESELR EU BY COLD. When the "life" of a fur garmenit is considered in relation to its cost, the economical quality is a high one, particu larly to-day when science has effected so perfect a preserver as cold storage. This development of preservation, which actu ally arrests natural deterioration caused by evaporation of the natural oils in the leather and hair of furs in :temperate and hot atmospheres, apart from the im munity it provides against ravages by moth, prolongs the "life" of the cons-· modity in a wonderful degree. This ad vantage alone compensates for a great deal of the recent rise in values. Further. the depth of colour and gloss in the fur is more enduring by many years than. it was under the warehousing conditions of bygone days.

As this is one of the most popular down-the-line courses, patrons 1always look forward to having a good afternoon's racing. 3There is a good deal of discussion at thile present time among sporting critics in reference to thle handicaps to be al lotted to the two champion two-year-olds in the Oakleigh Plate, namely Traquette and Woorak. Both have proved to be "fliers" and TraQuette is undoubtedly the s est filly seen for many a day. But if I were handicapping them in this race I would place them at equal weights.
