CORRESPONDENCE. ELECTRIC LIGHT SUPPLY FOR CHELSEA To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 21 February 1914
CORRESPONDENCE. ELECTRIC LIGHT SUPPLY FOR CHELSEA To the Editor Sir,-Mr Flyger's reply to my letter of the 10th inst, both of which appeared in "The News" of the 14th inst,, simply upholds my statement that he grossly misrepresented my scheme in putting it before the mem bers of the progress association of Aspendale at their last meeting. Mr Flyger has evidenced an exceedingly biased mind, and thus shown that he is absolutely unqualified to have occupied the position of chairman of the electric light committee, How ever, I will satisfy myself correcting misstatements. 1 Mr Flyger says " Charges for lighting Nightingall 7d, Stewart 8d" Mr Nightingall pro. poses 8d per unit with a reduction of a penny if paid within the month,' I propose maximum of 8d to commence and a permanent reduction if the profits of the company exceed the amount prescribed by the Electric Light Act. Mr Fl'~gor, however, does not state that Mr Nightingall proposes 2~d for cooking as a mini mum, whereas I propose...
MORDIALLOC. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 21 February 1914
MORDIALLOC. With a comfortable seat in the i apen air on a close, muggy night, the popularity of moving pictures was manifest by the attendance at the ai'tertainment offered last Saturday evening at Mordialloo, The manage. nent. were fortunate so far as the weather conditions and a gratifying attendance concerned, but, although an up-to.-dte plant has been in stalled, there was much to be desired in the manipulating of. the. machine, An allowance cai? certainly be made of'the fact of ih being the inaugura tion of the oenterprise.

MARKET GARDENERS' PICNIC A Hot Day---Interesting Sports. A Large Attendance. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 21 February 1914
MARKET 'GARDENERS' PICNIC A Hot Day--..Interesting Sports. A Large Attendance. The picnic of 1914, Will doubtless be recorded in the annals of the Gardeners' Association as a record more particularly from a heat point of view, as the day was a scorcher of the worst type. From an early hour of the day this class of weather was predicted, and excursionists were not disappointed. Even as the " Hygela" and " Ozone " forged their way to Queenscliff over the smooth water, the heat was intense the breeze being almost nial. Even this was bearable, but the heat on the grounds was almhnost the limit, how the officials got through their work, one wonders, but they did and with their customary tact and energy. The passengers by the boats mentioned numbered over 2000, whilst this number was con siderably augmented by arrivals per other means of conveyance. We offer the following sum for the solution by readers interested. With a thermometer reaching anything over 137 degrees, how many gallons If...

A WORD OF CRITICISM. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 21 February 1914
A WORD OF CRITICISM, Underlying those heaven-sent gifts of infinite tact and kindly diplomacy which are characteristic of Australia's High Commissioner, th'r, runs a streak of keen criticism and clear in alght which is sometimes turned upon our foibles, and which it behoves us to mark, learn, and inwardly digest. In a recent speech Sir George Reid unburdened himself thus ;--"The fatal thing about Australians is that they are so busy admiring their own pro gress and their own intelligence, that they. are-forgettlng the enormous tasks' which lie before them." A valuable and 'consclontious, opi nion of this kind, and from this source is not to be 'disregarded ; and perhaps the greatest incubus to indi vidual and national-- development is an undue supply of self-coinplacency. We who lie on the world's outskirts are peculiarly liable to lose the broad outlook, and to become .iarrow and self-centred in our ideas ;. and the travelling Australian frequently finds himself forced'to reorganis...
A VALUABLE OPINION. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 21 February 1914
.A VALUABLE OPINION. --~--+---- Mr. Justice lBevan, who has held of fleo for nearly two years in the Ter ritory, holds a sound, optimistic opinion as to that country's chances for a successful future. "The problem of this part of Aus tralia is economic rather than clima tic," he says. "I have not even a shadow of doubt;that the Territory can be successfully occupied by white people, as far as climate goes, but just now the question is how it can be made profitable. Nothing would assist development more than the discovery of payable goldfields. In, some localities money has been spent on a lavish scale, but not in the di. rection of proving the payableness of the leases. "While there are other sources of wealth in the Territory, the opening up of permanent mineral fields would do more than anything else to pro. mote settlement, and create a de mand for agricultural produce, There are possibilities of development in the frozen meat trade. The establishment of ,works at Darwin would en...
AMERICAN AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 21 February 1914
AMERICAN AGRICULTURE. An American oxpert says of Agri culturo in the United States:--"There is good authority for the assertion that tho farmor could take from the same area of ground in four years grain crops as much as seven years now givo him, leaving the produeos of the other throo years when the land rested from gramin, as a clear profit duo to bettor methods. Ho can do far moro than that by joining live-stock raising with grain raising, Nature has provided cattle to go with the land, , . What our people have to do is to cover less ground, cultivate smaller farms so as to mnako the most of thoem, instead of getting a scant and uncertain yield from poveral hundra'l acros."
A DISTINGUISHED OPINION. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 21 February 1914
A DISTINGUISHED OPINION, ------------+ Earl Grey is one of those pillars o the Empire who prefer national views and interests to local or persona; ones. His visit, therefore, should be of great benefit to Australia, for he Is a thinker who discovers and ad heres to what he considers Britain's best and ultimate gain, and is not biased by mistaken feelings for one country or people, His arrival at Perth was marked by an instructive speech, containing much kindly criticism and. good ad vice, and showing that he has thor oughly studied and pondered on Aus tralia's position in the Empire. lie asked and answered the question: "How are we going to develop our great country, and make ourselves worthy of the trust reposed on us ?" And he replied to the groat national query by emphasising the fact that Australians fortunately have already recognised-that it is not population and progress alone which make for full and perfect nationhood, but the spirit and devotion of the people; the identific...
JOHNNIE'S JOKE. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 21 February 1914
JOHNNIE'S JOKI. Toolo's was a brand of humour that wont out with the pun and the praoti onl joke. The things the comedian and his friends did off the stage, as a matter of courso and "to raise a laugh, " would to-day bring them within the ctuches of the law on many occasions. The pun was less devastating n a rule. Sims IReeyes told the story in his ronmnisoonccs how he was playing the .llrt of Tom Tug in company with his friend Toolo, who was also a ihombor of theo cast, In the "Waterman," ho oxplains, a word or two of a gag was held permissible; and, partly to amuse the audionco partly to astonish his fol low actor, Reoves, in a certain scone, in reply to Toole's question, "Wiat's tlio meaning of all thisP" replicd, "TIh meaning of it is that you've beon mado a tool of, and ]I'fn a happy foellow." "Jobuuid lodoed" cery' nmuc surpris ed," Reeves relates, "and as a popu lar comedian does not, if' he can hell it, allow himself to be scored off, he, after a moment's reflection - during...
