OFFICER DISAPPEARS SEARCH FOR PAYMASTER [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 29 January 1914

OFFICER DISAPPEARS SEARCH FOR PAYMASTER . A sensation has been caused in naval circles by the disappearance of Fleet Paymaster John Moitat Lowry from H.M.S. Ganges, which is stationed at Harwich (says the "Daily Express" of November 27). A large sum of Governmerft money, believed to be between £10,000 and £15,000, has also disappeared, and the missing naval officer is "wanted" in connection with the matter by Scotland Yard. The mystery is being investigated by a senior detective inspector, but as the keys of the safe have also disappeared, difficulty has been ex perienced in ascertaining the exact sum missing. \ Fleet Paymaster John Lowry is de scribed in the "Navy List" as an ad ditional officer of the Shotley Train ing Establishment. He is fifty-three years of age, 5ft. Sin. in height, and fresh complexioned, his eyes and moustache being grey. He is corpu lent, and has a swinging walk.

IMMWIAIITY A CANDID RELATIVE. I By W. Pett Ridge, In the "Westmin ster Gazette."). • "So thankful to find you at home," cried the flustered young woman. "Been wondering all the way from Shep herd's Bush, 'Supposing Aunt Bertha isn't In, whatever shall I do?' Really. : If you had happened to be out, I'd have made no - more ado about It. but I should have gone straight down to the river. It's a positive fact, I assure you. Why," plaintively, "what else could I have done?" "Tho weather's very trying," said the aunt. "Weather?" echoed the visitor, with bitterness. "Well for me If I'd noth ing worse than that to complain about." They went Into the front room, where the aunt opened a window, brought forward an easy chair. The other de clined to sit down, and walked to and fro as well as the thick forest of fur niture permitted, twisting white gloves, and frowning at her reflection when she passed by a small mirror. The aunt spoke of one or two local engage ments arranged between parties i...

HOME DEFENCE [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 29 January 1914

HOME DEFENCE Lord Glenconner (Mr Asquith's brother-in-law and former Liberal M.P. for Salisbury), addressing the Liverpool Liberal Federation yesterday (says the "Daily Mall" of December 2) said that despite attenuated numbers the Territorials cost £500.000 more than Lord Haldane assured us would bo the maximum cost for the full establiah j ment of 312,000 men. That was not ! sound business, and the time had come for an end to be put to these wasteful leakages. "What were we to do? There was an alternative measure between the Terri torial Force as now raised and conscrip tion, the latter of which was unneces sary and had never been advocated. The alternative was to compel the youth of all classes to take its turn in the Territorial Force, but instead of the six months' training., which Lord Hal dane proposed should be given after war broke out, t^iere should be a pre liminary period of recruits' training. If the extension of the Territorials, both in numbers and training, could be s...

BARBAROUS MILLINERY PROTECT WILD NATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 29 January 1914

BARBAROUS MILLINERY PROTECT "WILD NATURE. M. Edmond Perrler, Director of the Natural History Museum in Paris, who has just returned from the Berne International Conference for the Pro tection of Nature (says the Paris cor respondent of "The Daily News") states that a committee is to be formed (with its seat at Basle) with the ob ject of framing severe Customs laws designed to prevent the destruction of certain animal species. In Africa, for instance, explained M. Perrier, there are only 400,000 ele phants left, and they are being killed at the rate of 40,000 a year, whereas their rate of reproduction is slow. Whales are in a like case, and M. Perrier foresees very hard times for the Norwegian Trust, which combines 20 whalo fishery companies, whose shareholders are small Investors. Dealing with the osprey, which is found only in New Guinea, M. Perrier points out that the aigrette Is obtained from the male bird, in whose plumage occur annually at the laying season the 40 odd sprays wh...

COOL-HEADED WOMEN "BETTER DRIVERS THAN MEN." [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 29 January 1914

COOL-HEADED WOMEN I "BETTER DRIVERS THAN MEN." The advent of the light motor-car has Inspired hundreds of women to learn to drive, and almost every day on the Chelsea Embankment, which la free from heavy traffic, passers-by watch the beginning of the woman motorist's career. An Instructor Informed a represen tative of the "Dally Mall" on Novem ber 26 that the woman driver is either very good or hopeless. "I can tell at the first lesson," he said, "and It has been my experience that .the good woman driver is superior to the male, driver. Posesssing a delicate touch,' she rarely bungles the gears, and when driving Is coolness personified. It Is, I think, a question of concentration, for a woman I taught' recently told me, after driving through London with the skill and dash of a taxicab driver, that she suffered horribly from nerves all night. "The other day a young married woman, with absolutely no experience of motoring, drove on her second les son through Oxford street and Regent s...

CHAPTER VIII. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 29 January 1914

CHAPTER VIII. The two rooms, bedroom and sit ting-room, were most delightfully situ ated. The airy, bow-windowed sitting room faced the sea-front. Southbourne —famous for its climate and pines, and sumnier and winter gardens, did not present the cheerless, empty aspect of some seaside resorts in the winter months, though perhaps the number of bath-chairs and invalids that consti tuted a feature of the place was a lit tle depressing. _ Every morning at noon, weather permitting—and pt Southbourne weath er generally did permit—an easy-rolling bath-chair, well-sprung and pneumatic tyred, arrived at Bellevue House for rs. Price, and for the rest Mrs. JPrlce found it pleasant on the comfortable sofa in the bow-window, from which she commanded a panoramic view of sea and passers-by. It was pleasant, also, contributing to peace of mind and so to convalescence, to have meals well served and regularly, without having to order or to consider expense. Queen ie's presence further contributed to ...

MILITARY ATTITUDE PROTECTION OP CITIZENS The Kaiser last night summoned his ! new War Minister, General von Falken- ' hayn, and the Chief of the Imperial Military Cabinet, General Baron von Lynckner, to Donaueschingen, where his Majesty is staying with his friend Prince Max Egon zu Furatenberg (says the Berlin correspondent ot the "Daily. Mail," December 2). To-day the inci dents at Zabern, in Lower Alsace, were the subject of an exhaustive discus sion between the Kaiser and his mili tary chiefs. The incidents at Zabern originated' in a speech made by a twenty-year-old subaltern, Lieutenant von Forstner, to his.men. He advised them to stab" any "wackes" (meaning rowdy) who at tacked them.

SUMMER FALLOW. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 29 January 1914

SUMMER FALLOW. The remarkable i-esult of 414 bushels per aero, off about 100 acres, obtained by Mr. W. G. Greenwood, of Gerang, near Nhill, draws attention to the above practice, which has, been employed' by advanced farmers through the Wimmera for the last eight or ten years. On the black, friable soils of* this dis trict the work can be done with less strength than in winter, about five horses to the four-fur row plough being sufficient. In the stiff, red soils, it is a more difficult proposition; but the disc plough should render the prac tice possible-even for the stiffer Gouiourn Valley soils.
