CHAPTER IX. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 7 February 1914

CHAPTER IX. The individual may have a long me mory, but the general public has a short one. Where the general public •were concerned, the Hasted bank rob bery had ben consigned to the lim bo of forgotten things, though an un expected, belated development, pro claimed by a sensational newspaper head-line, would be enough to drag it forth. Men. 'Would think for a moment, and say, "Of course!" Then they would recall the case more or less vaguely. "The fellow's name "was Stanmore, or Stan-something. What was the sen tence? Five or ten years? He was engaged to be married, -wasn't he? Didn't she faint in court, or something like that? A shop-girl, wasn't she?" But there was no oblivion for the man in the prison cell—he could not consign memories to a limbo. Every hour, every day, bit memories more deeply into heart and soul—as acid bites into metal. There were no bru tal warders at Stilchester gaol. The governor was a former army officer and a gentleman. But prison regula tion^ 'were pris...

HYPO RAILWAY EXTENSION. DEPUTATION TO THE MINISTER. A FAVORABLE RECEPTION. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 7 February 1914

hypo bailwh mmmt DEPUTATION TO THE MINISTER. A FAVORABLE RECEPTION. On Tuesday last a deputation iroin representatives of the Alba cutya-Nypo Railway League and the Dimboola and Karkarooc Shire Councils (Mr. E. A. Woods, Crs. D. B. Innesand T. Raggatt) waited on the Minister of Kail ways, in reference to the extension of the railway line from Turkey Bottom to Nypo. The reputation was introduced by Mr. John Gray, M.L.A. The several speakers pointed out that the line already authorised should not stop at Turkey Bottom, but should extend .0 miles further north. This ad ditional extension, it was held, would be of great convenience to settlers, and as the district was expanding under cultivation, it would prove a payable line; One of the chief difficulties that beset settlers was provided by the sand reaches, which greatly hampered vehicular transit. The Minister (Mr. D. Mackinnon) promised to consider the matter when dealing with raihvnj' extension business.

HOW THE PUBLIC pays At Delhi tho Government can give notice to a landowner that they are about to use his land. They are then empowered to buy that land If they need it at its value at the time of the notice. In this way the people of Delhi escape tho sort of thing that happens to London when its suburbs are developed. Take one of tha latest successes in London travel. The Golder's Green Tube has multiplied by eight the value of land round Gol der's Green (says "The Nation.") And if any public authority has any town planning or development scheme in view, it has to pay somo such huge and unjust tax.

Although warned that his bank ing account was overdrawn he drew cheques, the subject of the charge.

DEADLY FLANNELETTE [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 7 February 1914

DEADLY FLANNELETTE \ Inflammable clothing as a cause of i deaths by fire is exposed in a striking I manner by statistics compiled by "Fire." The writer says:— "When the fireguards clause was in corporated in the Children Act it was piously hoped that the number of chil dren annually burned to death would be reduced by half. So far as our records , go, the number of infantile mortalities has increased, for the Act is practic ally a dead letter; few penalties are im posed in the comparatively few in stances where proceedings have beeu taken. The Government did not strike at the principal cause of infantile burn ing fatalities—inflammable clothing." "Very few men are burnt to death owing to their clothing igniting," adds the writer, "but it is different with women, quite 95 per cent, of the fatal ities to women reported being due to I the inllammability of their wearing apparel." | The total of fire fatalities this year to November 19, as compiled by the writer, is 64 men, 204 women, a...

BOOM IN ZOOS ANIMALS LIKE THEIR CAGES. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 7 February 1914

BOOM IN ZOOS ANIMALS LIKE THEIR CAGKS. "No tiros and no mammals, from whatsoever part of the wor d or cli mate they may have come, ever ap proach the duration of life which they may be expected to attain, if they are kept in the interior of a warmed house," said Dr Chalmers Mitchell secretary to the Zoological Society of London, referring to the new open-air installations at the Zoo in a paper read before the Royal Society of Arts last night (says the "Daily Express" of November 27). The customary heating arrange ments are expensive but certain modes ! of killing them. iTresh air is the fun damental necessity. "There is what may be called a boom in zoological gardens." he said. "I am sometimes charged with being too sedulous of the popular side of mena geries and careless of their scientific side. In this matter there is a real coincidence between what the public want and what is best for the advance ment of scientific knowledge. "There are very few living animals that are known to ...
