THE POPULARITY OF TENNIS. [Newspaper Article] — Chiltern and Howlong Times and Ovens Register — 3 February 1914
THE POPULARITY OF TENNIS. . Twenty years ago lawn tennis was a. game that few people had; op portunities or desire to play. The courts were kept "select" a term which. was asfatal to their'-financial success or pbpulairty as. x when em ployed in connect'.on with a. ball; A "select"' ball or dance was" never else but a failure.* So few people could satisfy-, /themselves that they were "select" qr would take the risk of finding that they were not so-con sidered by the eminent people who were" conducting the "select" ball. But when money was required to purchase, land, make and maintain courts and pay the small expenses incidental to the game, the .top rail was taken off the social barrier ana a few more players were added to the club, an honour for which 'they readily paid. ' But their fees still left- a deficit, and eventually tho social barrier- was almost wholly re moved and tennis gradually gained an ascendancy / in ..-popularity o ver cricket which, .it lias now in many provincia...
RUTHERGLEN. [Newspaper Article] — Chiltern and Howlong Times and Ovens Register — 3 February 1914
RUTHERGLEN. . Some years ago the nationalisation of all the mines of Victoria" was ad vocated by the Socialists during: a dispute about wages between some of the companies and their miners. With their eyes firmly fixed upon Mr John A. Wallace, George Lansell, Fred Merton and a few others who had been exceptionally successful these proposeis of nationalisation saw nothing l>ut success and very high wages in alJ departments as the result of pidoption of their proposal. But "somebody good at figures," went deeply into the affairs of all the mines of tho States whose figures were available, and proved that it would bo even 'ess wise to nationalise the mines than it would St. John's wort, the rabbits or the small-pox, as the total expenditure on the mines far exceeded .the profits yielded by them and that considered as a whole tho mining industry was a rank failure and "was only carried on in the "hope that springs eternal in the human breast' of mining investors as well as others tha...

POLITICAL. [Newspaper Article] — Chiltern and Howlong Times and Ovens Register — 6 February 1914
POLITICAL . Tho members of our State Parlia liament arc promised a welcomo re spite from their labours (?) after this week if they will only curtail their exuberance of verbosity, but there seems little hops of this as the Labour members have Btartedt to stonewall part of the estimates which Mr Watt is anxious to push through this week. .Meanwhile the only matter of interest to tho electors is Sir A. A. Billson's suggestion that the pay of country membeis should bj increase J by an other hundred or two pounds to com pensate them for the extra expsnse of living in Melbourne and the cruelty of being deprived of th9 amenities of home life. Whether his suggestion will bear fruit is doubtful but there Is something reasonable in tho idejj As to the extra expense, never mind that. "Nunky pays for all."
