A gfORV FROM SCOTLAND. m Didn't Want a Worldly Minister. A itory is told of a gardener at the Tillage of Inverkeithlng, In Scotland, end the Rev. Ralph Erskine, of. Dun fermline. f-The gardener .desired to bare the ordinance of baptism admin tered to his child, but having differed with bis pariah minister, whom he ac cused of worldliness, he resolved t.~ gollcit the services it an adjoining parish.

FAILURES DUE TO LAZINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 14 February 1914
FAILURES DUE TO LAZINESS. "The two main causes of failure in lite," said an.observant business man. "so far as I have studied the ques tion, are Incompetence and lazlnesB. "The first la, of course, not, as a rule, a matter in which the suflerer can be held responsible. If a man be | lacking in natural judgment and ability then lie must g > under, al though even hore hones'.y, peruever ance and industry would do much to atone for the lack of natural gifts. "But laziness is by far the most pro- ! lific parent of failure. It is responsible for the lack of ambition, and it is largely the cause of bad habits and dissipation. It is the lazy men who drink, gamble and neglect opportuni ties. It Is they who are extravagant, because the o>:travagant man is too lazy to save. The active, energetic fellojy Is saved from these vices by hiB disposition, and could not become a failure so long as ho retained hit normal character." I

RISE IN COST OF PRINTING. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 14 February 1914
RISE IN COST OF PRINTING. —^ Those who patronise city, print ing firms in preference to their own local firm will no doubt get a big shock when their next accounts are due. During the past few weeks a wholesale revision of prices both in the city and country has been made, and some of the new prices will probably be considered exorbitant. In the city or coun try it is now impossible to obtain the smallest of billheads or memos at less than lis 6d per 1000. Even if an order -is given for 4000 or .5000, the price is about 8s per 1000, or what was formerly the ordinary price for a single thous and. Ordinary counter books formerly turned out bound, and numbered at 6s 6d per thousand sheets are now 15s per 1000. Small concert cards formerly 4s per 100 are now 5s, while large concert cards have risen from 5s per 100 to 6^ 6d. Small dodgers usually 10s 6s per 1000 have risen to 15s. The charge for printing on envelopes is 7s 6d per 1000, in addition to cost of envelopes. Letter-cards have ...

FREAK FASHIONS. SLIT SKIRT AND DIAPHANOUS ROBE. PROTECTION OF MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 14 February 1914
FREAK FASHIONS. : ♦ ' SWT SKIRT AND DIAPHANOUS ROBE PROTECTION OF MEN. No such drastic steps as are being taken in America have yet been adopted here with a view to de ciding arbitrarily what women may or may not wear. The ideas of well-known Sydney people on the subject of feminine dress are. how ever, of interest. Aldermad R. W. Richards (Lord Mayor of Sydney), when inter viewed, said that he regarded these statements as absurd. Women, in his opinion, are very well garbed—of course, allowing for the usual exceptions. They themselves are the best judges of their appearance, and if they are well satisfied, that , is enough. It does not behove men to dictate what women shall wear nor what suits them best. Men should not be the censors of feminine apparel. As for the proposed bill to protect men against the demoralising effect of women's alleged disgraceful frocking, it is Mr. Richards' opinion that the man who needs protection against women should be incarcerated. "There's nothing ei...

"The Dispatch" SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 14. PUBLISHED WEDNESDAY AND SATURDAY Local and General News [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 14 February 1914
"The Dispatch" SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 14. Pdbusheh Wednesday and Saturday Local and General News The Duck season opened on Wednesday, and from the accounts which have come to hand from the principal centres birds cvere not nearly so plentiful, consequently there was an entire absence of slaughter, as usually prevails on the opening day. The scarcity of birds is one of the strongest argu ments that can be used in favor of making a complete close season for two or three years. And then, a limit should be fixed upon the size of bags. This would do much towards increasing the quantity of birds, and the result would be better sport. A number of local sports went out in quest of the feathery tribe, and roost of them returned empty handed. A private party, organised by Mr. L. J. Weatherly, had a day's shooting on the Wdolongoon lake on Thurs day. A total of 170 ducks were obtained by six shooters. The Terang Picnic Race Carni val will be held on the Terang Race course this afternoon, the first...

GRASS FIRE. HAY STACKS DEMOLISHED. BEATERS STUBBORN WORK. Were it not for the magnificent services rendered by a small bin? of beaters, led by Mr J T F,vt^ Captain of the Mortlake Bush Five -Brigade, yesterday afternoon it is more than probable that a verv large area of land to the west anJ south of Mortlake would be a black , smoking mass. ck I *!he 'Cene of the °«tbreak was at Mr. Michael Holds worth's fartn to the west of Mortlake, and jJS outside of the town boundary Shorih' after 1.30 a quantity of grass adjacent to Mr. Holdsworth's hay stacks became ignited from some cause or other, which cannot be accounted for, and in the space of a few minutes the stubble in the adjoining paddock was ablaze, and aided by a good breeze, quickly anTi rtiin a" easter]y direction, and at the same time spread over a fairly wide area.

FRUIT GROWING IN GANADA. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 14 February 1914
FRUIT GROWING IN GAM ADA. Tho Canadian Minister of Agriculture is causing a special inquiry to be made into the .I'ruil.-jjtwinjz industry of Can ada. ? Tho investigation will he eon ducted with a view to scouring the hest and most reliable information, respect ing tho area and extent of land adapt ed to fruit growing in tile provinces, and the varieties of fruit, which have boon found to be most profitable and most successful in each locality; the tendency towards concentrating on tlio production of standard varieties on a large scale, and the facilities for dis tribution and marketing. Of course it is well-known that fruit-growing in Canada has already assumed very con siderable proportions, but the industry is capable of indefinite expansion in view of- the demand of the home and expert markets.
FERMENTATION IN PAPERMAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 14 February 1914
FERMENTATION IN PAPER MAKING. Among the recall, improvements in handling paper-making matorials is a process for extracting tho starch from cotton rags that are used in making linen papers. Practically all cottou cloth lias some kind of a filler, and much or' this is starch. In clippings from new cloth there is a considerable amount of starch filler. It was the practice formerly to soak the rags in warm water, and then to boil them in an alkali solution. But tho effect of tho on sturch is very slow, as it causes tho starch to swell up, so that tho solution readies tho inner part of the starch grains only with dilliculty. Malt is added in the proper amount to convert the starch into a soluble sugar which readily dissolves out of the fibre of the cloth and leaves it free of the filler. Tho active principle of tho. malt is. the "enzymes" that attack the starch just as they do in the brewing process, and convert it into a form of sugar th'atjs easily disposed of.
NOISELESS CITY STREETS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 14 February 1914
NOISELESS CITY STREETS. TJioro is coming into use in Germany .a cheap and ready method of asphalting a stone-paved street which is showing good results. The space between pav ing blocks are cleaned out to tlio dopth of about an iuc.h, and then a layer of melted asphalt is llowed oyer tlic street .surface, tlio depth, of the layer being about one inch. Before it is cooled, sand is sprinkled on .and tlio surface is smoothed*. At Frankfort a section of this kind is now laid, and it appears to stand the wear remarkably Tvell. Should tlio method prove a success in general practico it will afford an excel lent means of deadening the noise of city traffic at a small expense. It is quickly carried out, and it need not .stop the circulation on narrow streets for any length of time. Moreover, repairs are easily made.

FERTILISER TERMS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 14 February 1914
FERTILISER TERMS. jn tho minds of farmers who have littlo time to study the technicalities of nomenclature, confusion may easily arise ns to the precise .meaning of the different names under which phosphate of lime is offered for agricultural pur poses. There are four forms of phos phate of lime:-1. Soluble in water, as in superphosphate. It is mono-caloic namely, one equivalent of phophoric acid, is combined with 0110 equivalent of lime, and when phosphate of lime is ! described as "soluble," it is understood by long custom and usance in the trado to mean "soluble in water." This is recognised by the Fertilisers and Feed I mg Stuffs Act, beoauso in Section 10, (1), wo find tho words, "The expres sions 'soluble and insoluble' shall res pectively, mean soluble and insulublo m j water," and if the phosphate of lime [ is not soluble in water, but in citric acid, it should bo so specified. 2.

APPLE EXPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 14 February 1914
APPLE EXPORTS. Fruitgrowers, who export apples to Europe, .will bo interested in some sta tistics compiled by Mr Tlios. Boss "Walker, regarding the actual results of shipments made last season from Tas mania, under the private marks of individual orchardints. ThtS opera tions of 20 small growers, ranging in quantity from 111 to S03 eases, and aggregating G4Q0 cases for tho season, gave a net return on Mobart wharf of (5/10 to 0/V per oaso. Sixty seven other growers exported between them 32,'105 and their individual average net re turn for tho season on Hobnrt wharf ranged from 3/9 to o/9 per ease. It must boi remembered that Tasmanian apples as a rule do not sell in Europe at such high prices as thoso from the main land of Australia. This evidence tends to show that small lines of well selected and earefully-packed apples realise more money than tho same class of fruit in large quantities. Buyers apparently are. prepared to pay, a con siderable premium to secure the wholo of any cho...
