Langard began his perilous journey at three o'clock, and tho powerful motor boat darted through the tearing waters with beauti ful precision.

As long as the Manchu Emperors exercised over them a mild and lenient suzerainty they were willing to be included in the Chinese Empire.

Now comes information that its mail and passenger .lines to Australia will be dis continued** if the necessary subsidy is not forthcoming from the eGrman Go vernment. This statement has been made on the authority of its Sydney agent, who, in the course of an inter view, also added that the Far Eastern services would be continued without any payment.

"FLAPPER" AT THE DANCE [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 March 1914

"FLAPPER" AT THE DANCE (By Duncan Swann in " The Daily Mail.") It was her long mauve legs and the bow to match in her hair that first at tracted me as I leant against the ball room wall idly watching the gyrations of the dancers. She was tfaltxlng with a youth from Eton at the time, of the same immature age as herself, and wore a look of profound boredom that I attributed partly to the unskilled movements of her partner, partly to the fact that the occasion was that anoma lous function, a Christmas party, at which all ages from 12 to TO are repre sented and the young married women are in unfair request. Just as the band struck up the next item I crossed to where she was wrin kling her pretty forehead over the hieroglyphics on her programme. "Are you engaged for this?" I asked, with the unconscious patronage o£ the forties towards the teens. "I don't think we've been introduced," she replied with hauteur, tossing a mass of fair hair out of her eyes. "I—I beg your pardon," I stammered...

Mr Henry Ford's scheme to distri bute £2,000,000, representing approxi mately one-half of the profits of the Ford Motor Car Company, among the employes attracts universal attention (says the New York correspondent of "Tho Daily Telegraph" on January 7). Additional details from Detroit, fur nished by tho secretary of the com pany, are to the effect that employes will share in the profits annually, and no employe over the ago of 22, not even floor-sweepers, will receive less than £1 daily. Mr Henry Ford, the originator 0f the scheme, is quotpd as declaring that capital and labor hith erto have not shared profits to the ex tent they should. As to tho possibility of "losses, nothing definite is forthcom ing from Detroit so far, but every mechanic In the United States now contemplates offering his services to the Ford Motor Company.

In a flash on Saturday afternoon we were at the end of the first stage of the Journey.

OFF THE EARTH! NOVICE'S ADVENTURE ON SKI. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 March 1914

OFF THE EARTH! NOVICE'S ADVENTURE ON SKI. | (By a special correspondent in "The Daily News and Leader"). You soon learn that winter sport in the Alps means -really ski-ins. The skaters are a small and artistic class apart. Toboganning is a healthy and vivacious sport for children and those who are child-hearted. Sleighing, well wrapped up in furs, with plumed horses and bells a-jingle, is for rich Germans. IBob-sleighing is excellent communal fun, requiring considerable skill for. such a run as the full length of the Cresta. But ski-ing is for those who are young and adventurous, who love to range on mountain slopes instead cf a rink behind the hotel, and wlio are sound in wind and limb. The man who is just beginning to wonder whether he is too old at forty and is a newcomer looks upon the young ana ruddy ski ers at the hotel as an elderly farmer regards Hamel at Hendon. Ah I new blood, supple limbs, and exquisite skill! The lucky young rogues! He merely listens with Interest to the...
