DAY LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 March 1914

DAY LABOR. In speaking to the question of a contract, Cr Mummery declared that the council was spending too much. They should tell the engineer that he must curtail ex penses. The President remarked that a certain amount of. money had been allocated for the road in question. Cr Mummery contended that | they had spent over that amount. There was too much spent upon day labor. The Secretary poi ited out that they had had £1400 to expend, and had spent £1577. The Engineer explained that a lot of work had been done by day labor that should have been done by contract. That had swelled the petty works and maintenance ac count abnormally. The Secretary : Yes, but that does not affect the financial posi tion. It is simply a matter of taking from one account and placing it on another. Cr Johnson remarked that the Mirboo riding had £850, an un completed Government grant con tract of last year, towards which they now had in hand £100 of Government grant. The Secretary stated that they had £100...

MUSIC HALL TONE ACTION IN LONDON [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 March 1914

MUSIC=HALL TONE ACTION IN LONDON Once again there was a struggle lie fore the London County Council for the Coliseum and Hippodrome drink li censes, and again they were refused (says "The Daily News" of November 29). The recommendations of the Theatres anil Music Halls Committee were con sidered by tlie council, and Mr T. M. Ilealy, ICC., for the Coliseum, asked that the restrictions should- apply only to the auditorium. The Coliseum, he maintained, was in what might be called the pleasure ground qf the metropolis—in clubland, in the district where the large hotels were. It had no parallel in the world. That part of London had become al most International in character. There was no allegation that there had been anything like disorder, demoralisation, or misconduct at this hall. Mr Hinde and Mr BlaiUlock opposed on behalf of temperance societies. Mr Blaikloek said the success of the Coliseum was due to the Council's wise restriction, which liajl created a new public.

HUMOR OF SERIOUS THINGS [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 March 1914

HUMOR OF SERIOUS THINGS j (By Alec Johnston in "The Glasgow Weekly Herald.") riio world is in danger of being divided into the people who regard serious things seriously and people who regard them entirely as a joke. -Military training, strikes, marriages, other necessities of civilisation have attained permanent rank as serious things; and to treat them ac tively as anything else is to incur the displeasure of society ut large •— no doubt rightly, from society's point of view. But the difficulty about such matters, from the humorist's point of view, is the'rldlculous way in which they give themselves airs. Military training ties itself up in a peculiar brand of red tape, which lends sacro snnctity to its most trivial transac tions. The soldier must, of course, "always keep his ride and himself just so." To this end our Govern ment, be it Liberal or Conservative another of our serious and neces sary jokes—spends some millions a ' year in equipping our skeleton army with dress and un...

As the purchaser ot the Duke of Bedford's Covent Garden estate, he becomes a person of extraordinary in terest. What is he going to do with Uis purchase? That was one of the questions put to him by a "Daily News" representative last night. Would he sell the market to the London County council? Ho replied that, if approached, he would be prepared to treat with the London County Council "as a willing seller and a willing purchaser." "I would rather sell it to a public authority than to a private owners," he raid. "It is a property, I think, which would be better held—on account of its size and importance—by a public authority. But so long as it is in my possession I intend to carry it on in a publlc-spirltcd way. Naturally, I do not want to lose by it." He repudiated the idea that the estate was going to be run on American hust ling li...

POLICE AND LAMPS CRESSET TO ELECTRIC TORCH [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 March 1914

POLICE AND LAMPS I CRESSET TO ELECTRIC TORCH The London policeman's "bull's eye" Is, according to report, shortly to pass away (says the "Daily Tele graph" of January S). In Its stead he is to have an electric torch, which will spread light before and around him, while he himself remains un seen. At his bidding there will be light, though doubtless there' will be times when, pressing a button with twentieth century confidence in science, lie will call for light and none will come. But that modern wizard, the electrician, may bo trusted to see to it that these occasions are rare. "Beloved Peeler" has become so much an institution with us that we are apt to forget there was a time when, so far from being thus affec tionately hailed in song, he was the target for hearty abuso and ridicule. For In order that he rnight come an other had to go, and though the eighteenth century "Charley" was about as lit to preserve order as a ruined keep would be to repel a siege train, the English have ...

WIRELESS ROMANCE PROPOSAL BY MARCONIGUAJI A boy and girl romance, which was thought to have ended ton years, ago through a proposal being lost In the post, now promises to end happily after all, so it is reported (says the New York correspondent of "The Daily News and deader" on Decem ber 30), following the arrival here from Europe of Mrs Frances Tomp son, a Scottish widow. It ^'as the use of wireless telegraphy that repaired the error of the old fashioned mail system, for during her passage across the Atlantic Mrs Thomp son received by Marconigram a pro posal of marriage from tin old .suitor, Mr F. Macintyre, who is now living at Superior, Wisconsin. Mrs Tompson and Mr Macintyre were boy and girl lovers in Scotland, both being residents of Lclth, and the latter went to America to make his fortune.

ACTRESS'S 89TH BIRTHDAY [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 March 1914

ACTRESS'S 89TH BiRTHDAY Yesterday that lino actress, Mrs John Billington, entered her 90th, year (says "The Daily Telegraph" of Janu ary 5) and her many friends in and outside the profession will be delighted to know that, in spite of her great age and precarious health, she preserves all her vigor of mind, together with that cheerfulness of spirit which has always been one of her most endearing characteristics. Mrs Billington's youthful successes were achieved in the early days of Queen Victoria's reign, when theatres were few and salaries low; but friends were plenty. In the list of members of the old Adelphi company, in which Mrs Billington played "leading lady" for many years, were such names as Benjamin Webster, Madame Celeste, T. P. Cooke, Paul Bedford, J. K Toole, the Billingtons' life-long friend and as sociate, and the eccentric Robert Homer. Among her pleasantest recollections is the last tour of her acting career, when she went as "heavy lead" to America with the beautifu...

LONDON NIGHT CLUBS DUINIs and dance.

Two-in-the-morning courage might be all very well (for other people) but two-in-the-mornins plea sure was only excusable at a ball.

HEALTH OF THE CHILD LESSON FROM NEW ZEALAND [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 March 1914

HEALTH OF THE CHILD LESSON FROM NEW ZEALAND w (By Mrs. J. A. Hobson in ' Daily News and Leader.") There are many important things to be dono in England before she can vindicate her claim to be a pattern of civilisation. About threo of these things public opinion has been aroused, and wo are promised small holdings, better housing, and higher wages. But if we are to reap the full benefit of these reforms there is a fourth no less important question which is just beginning to attract attention. What is the character of the homes in which the majority of the nation's children are being dragged up to-day? For both health and illness, like charity, begin at home. The difficul ties, although largely economic, are not entirely so. The medical officer of Islington says in a recent report:— "There are far too many men who earn good wages living in homes that i are most unsatisfactory in every way," I and^Tdeclares the ignorance of the I jyorking man's wife to be "something— I appalling"; tha...

THACKERAY'S DKATII On Christmas Eve, 1SG3 — fifty years ago—Thackeray died unexpectedly. Tlu last words he corrected in print wer (says "The Westminster Gazette") "And my heart throbbed with an exquisite bliss." To Dickens a week earlier he had laughingly described a new remedy he had had it in his mind to try for an indisposition that had kept him to his bed for three days. "He was cheerful and looked very bright." A perusal of his latest writings convinced Dickens that iiis once estranged friend was in the healthiest vigor of his powi::v:t and in reference to the above sentence hu wrote: "God grant that on that Christ mas Eve when he laid his head back on his pillow and threw up h:"y arms, as he was wont to do when very weary, some consciousness of duty dt.ni\ and of Christian hope throughout lire humbly cherished, may have cau.ed his own heart so to throb when he passed away to his Redeemer's rest." He was found peacefully lying- as above de scribed, composed, undisturbed, and to...

THE SKUNK [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 March 1914

TIIE SKUNK One natural result of the recent boom'in furs (says "The Westminster Gazette") is an attempt to breed fur bearing animals in England. In this connection a large consignment or Xorth American skunks has lately ar rived, some of which will shortly be established by Mr Mervyn Chute in a largo hillside enclosure on his estate In Northumberland.. Despite a malodor ous reputation, the skunk seems a dainty feeder, subsisting chiefly on in sects, and it is considered doubtful whether sufficient food of the correct kind can be procured. Moreover, the value of the fur produced may be af t'ucied by our milder rlimate. A pari from the fur, the terrible fetid iluid for which this animal is notorious is valu able medicinally, being prescribed for Asthma; though an asthmatic clergy nan. who took a bottle- of it into the ;uilpit lo inhale when his breath grew troublesome, found that ho had reliev ed his malady, but dispersed uic con gregation.
