IN ZACCARATH. The Hall of Festival. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 28 March 1914

IN ZACCACATH 4,_ The Hall of Festival. A marvellous scene it was when the tempestuous horns were halted before the King, and the drums in the dark were like the thunder of God, and the Queens were nodding their heads in time to the music, with their dia dems flashing like heavens of falling stars, and the warriors lifted their heads and shook, as they lifted them, the plumes of those golden birds which hunters wait for by the Lid dian lakes, in a whole lifetime kill ing scarcely six, to make the crests that the warriors wore when they feasted in Zaccarath. Then the King shouted and the warrior;s sang-al most they remembered then old bat tlechants. And, as they sang, the sound of the drums dwindled and the musicians walked away backwards, and the drumming became fainter and fainter as they walked, and alto gether ceased, and they blew no more on their fantastic horns. Then the assemblage beat on the fioor with their palms. And afterwards the Queens besought the King to send for anoth...

RICHES IN RUBBER. Can You Discover a Substitute? [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 28 March 1914

RICHFES IN RUBER , ---_-+-- Can You Discover a Substitute ? One of the sensations of the hour i. the jump in the price of rubber. In February last year the top pritc~e of best Para caoutchoue was 2/9 per pound. To"ards the end of July. 1909 the price had leaped up to 8/ This is a matter which affects every inhabitant of the country, for how people managed to. live without rub ber in the past is a mystery. We moderns use it at every stage of life from the cradle to the grave. No sooner are we born than rubber as serts its value in the form of nipples and tubes for out feeding-bottles and -'aoothers" to keep us quiet. When a few months old, we take the air in rubber-tyred perambula tors, probably lying on rubber sheets and covered with rubber waterproofs. The first toy which pleases us is the rubber ball.. And so on all through life, We comb our hair with hard rubber Or ebonite combs, wash with rubber sponges, keep our feet dry with rub-. ber boots, travel in rubber-tyred cabs and 'tf...

Our 'Season.' AT ITS CLOSE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 28 March 1914

.Iir 'n. ' , . . ..L AT ITS CLOSE. There has been considerable diminution during the past couple of weeks in the number of visitors in Queenscliff. This was to be expected,, as the season is at its close. Several of the principal houses have, however, maintained almost their full season comple ment, which is a good thing. At Point Lonsdale, to., the same is the case, There is fresh evidence every season' of Point Lonsdale increas ing in popularity. This season has seen more visitors than ever.at the Point. This is due principally to the quiet and rest to be obtained there and the increased provision made by boarding-houses. Im proved accommodation for the holi day-maker has everything to do with his visit, and as this accom modation increases so will there be an increase of holiday-makers up to a certain point, and it is evident there is yet room for expansion, both st Point Lonsdale and at Queeniscliflf. Sorrento, too, continues in favor, and the efforts made to improve the immedia...

ABOUT BALLOONS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 28 March 1914

AtSUUI1 ALaLUUND. - +-$---- So far ps is known, no balloon has ever remained in the ai'r for more than fifty-four hours at a stretch, or travelled more than 1,000 miles, or lifted any living person more than seven miles above the earth's surface. Unmanned balloons, however, have attained to an altitude of fifteen miles. The greatest danger o( a high as cent is cqncerne4 with the changing density of the atmosphere. On the ground, the atmosphere presses on the balloon with a weight of about 151b. for every square inch of its surface. As the balloon rises, how ever, the air grows thinner, and its pressure. becomes, in consequence, less and less. As the pressure of tihe out side atmosphere decreases the bal loon expands, apd, if the ascension is made too rapidly, or without suf ficient care, the gas inside the silk envelope will expand until the bal loon bursts. But the bursting of a balloon in mid-air is by do means necessarily a fatal catastrophe. Every balloor is provided with a "rip...

Sunday Corner. ,-~ Always Our Best, All Christ wants from us is what we have ability to do. He asks !o inipossibilities. IHe accepts our homeliest, poorest. gifts or services if they are indeed our best and if true love to him consecrates and sanctifes thetu. We need to care but fcr two things-that we do always our best, and that we do what we do through love for Christ. If we are faithful up to the mea uime of our ability and opportunity, and if love sanctifies what we do, we are sure of our Lord's approval. But we should never offer less than the best that we can do; to do so is to be disloyal to our Lord .and dis loyal to our own soul.

Queens cliff, with its impressive esplanade. wide streets and shady park that flirts with the sands, is a fine sample of what Australians can do when they seriously lay out a seaside resort. This breezy sea scape lives on fish and tourists.. The latter are out of season in winter. The town suffers with Christian fortitude the indignity of having its trim park untidied by picnic parties from Melbourne, once or twice a week in summer. It collects much cash for hard and soft drinks from the visitors. The excursion steamer whisks them up *he Bay before nightfall, and the park ranger co...
