SHIRT FRONT ADVERTISING [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 24 January 1914
SHIRT FRONT ADVERTISING By IVAN HEALD. Do you ever play that Jolly game of Pointing out Famous People? asks Ivan Heald in the "Daily Express" of No vember 25. I mean the game in which you take a country relative along Pic cadilly, and, pointing to casual passers by, say, "That's Lord Howard de Wal den," or "There goes the Duke of Bed ford," and keep it up until the relative is so impressed with your social omnis cience that you can sdmetimes borrow money from him. If you go in for this kind of thing yourself I want to warn you against a man who is often in Leicester-square these nights. He is a good-looking chap, in faultless evening clothes, and I was just pointing him out to my aunt from Stalybridge last night as the young Earl of Broadacres when he gave the show away by doing something most un-English. He pressed a but ton somewhere, and on his shirt front there aflmed in letters of light the words: " Oh, You Kid!" Frivolity Theatre. Matinees Wednesdays. I tried to persuade my au...
RISKY FRENCH FARCE APPEAL TO CENSOR [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 24 January 1914
RISKY FRENCH ý FARCE a APPEAL. TO CENSOR o Mr Jose G. Levy's adaptation of MM. Hennequin and Veber's "Madame la. n Presidente" is a centre-board farce. To a drop a metaphor which is too whole-II some and breezy for such a piece as we saw at the Garrick Theatre, "Who's it the Lady?" says "E.A.B." in the "DailyI News," is one of the most risky farces t yet produced on the London stage. PETTICOAT AUDACITY c Thereois a scene in "Who's the It Lady?" which will be much discussed. i A musical comedy, actress, Gobette, q has called on Cyprien Gaudet, Minister r of Justice, and, in the course of a vio- v lent flirtation, her flimsy dress falls a (purposely or not) from her shoulders, t and the lady is seen in her petticoats. t She then swings herself on to the knee of the young Minister. r When discovered by the usher the v musical comedy cocotte flies into an- a other room, but later she emerges and .1 flirts with the Minister's private secre- ! tary, who ultimately hides with her in f yet ...

BRITISH CABINET. -NAVAL DIFFICULTY. C: CRISIS ANTICIPATED. LONDON, Wednesday. A keen controversy is in progress in regard to the meeting of the Cabinet to-moirow, when nmatters in, connection with the naval' question- are expected to reach a crisis. Mr Churchill's re ference to the newspaper reports of serious dissensions, which, although he' declared them to be.based on, surmise and gossip, he did not specifically.'deny has, if anythiiig, increased the public interest. It is generally expected that the Prime Minister will decide in favor of MNk'Churchill.. The key. of the. prob len is the relation of the dominions" warships to the British standard-per ticularlyjr. the New' Zealand and Cana dian battleships. . UNIONIST'S VIEW. LONDON, Thursday. * Mr H.

DOG AND HORSE ANCESTRAL LINES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 24 January 1914
DOl AND HORSE ANCESTRAL LINES. Recent investigations into the lake dwellings of Switzerland have been em bodied in a book on prehistoric Switzerland by a German Professor. The importance of these dwellings was only recognised in 1854, when a sharp frost on the lake of Zurich caused the water to retreat and laid bare the signs of human habitation. The polished stones which were found proved that the lake villages went back to neolithic times, and the animal remains prove that the dog and the horse, the pig and the sheep, and the ox and the goat were already domestic animals at that time. The dog is the most ancient of these ani mals. The first species was a cross between the pointer and the beagle, and for a long time there was none other than the spaniel. It .is not known what this neolithic dog sprang from, whether it came from the wolf or the jackal. but one thing is certain, that when it.became domesticated it developed its present habit of barking. The horse is less ancient as a...

FRONTIER-MAKING BALKANS DIFFICULTIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 24 January 1914
FI~lU iEtiIAKlIU | BALKANS DIFFICULTIES. Peace of a kind now reigns again in I the troubled Balkans, and international I boundary commissions are at work pre- d paring the new maps (says the "Ob- 8 server." s But the task of delimiting the new t' frontiers is not. proving particularly 1 easy, one of the difficulties being the y want of reliable maps of the ohl fron tiers. The old dividing lines look very clear and definite on existing maps, but it is in many places impos-~ -Ible to reconcile the frontiers of the maps with those recognised in every day practice among the various Balkan lationallties. The method originally adopted for fixing the boundary between Southern Albania and Greece has hopelessly broken down. c The International Commission was instructed to draw the frontier accord- r Ing to a language test, but when the map makers got to work they found that the inhabitants of the region in question speak indiscriminately Greek, Turkish, English, French, Bulgarian, and Albani...
TRADES HALL SIEGE. CHARGES AGAINST STRIKERS FAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 24 January 1914
TRADES'HALL SIEGE. CHARGES AGAINST- STRIXERBS PAIL. Pive. of the .men. who: were besieged in the Johannesburg' Trades Hall .were to-day presented in a- Police Court to answser eharges of having resisted the police during the attempted raid on the, hail a week ago. Detective M'Bride gave evidence that. the door of the Trades Hall was slammed in bhis face .and bolted. A man inside aimed a. revolver at him through the glass panel of the door, and ordered him to clear out. Counsel for accused argued that the police should have asked for admission in the name of the King. The Public Prosecutor admitted that this was not clone, but he thought that it was clear that the occupants were resisting the police. - The magistrate, in dismissing the charges, said- that - M'Bride- clearly meant to enter without'saying who he was. Nevertheless, the -occupants "of the hall had behaved foolishly. It would be best for accused to return-to work. - -

CABLEGRAMS. MBEUME ' IaPBOIAMa. . APRICAIN .OaXIý0I8. STRIKE DECLARED OFF. "FOR THE PRESENT," CARRIED BY MNERS' BALLOT. JOHANNESBURG, Thursday. There is every indication that the industrial situation in South Africa will shortly be restored to its normal condition. The new executive of the Federation of Trades held a secret meeting this afternoon, and decided to declare the general strike off as from Thursday, with the i gnificant addition "until further notice." Prior to the meeting of the Feder ation executive to-day, several ballots were held among the strikers, owing to a feeling that the opinions of the rank and file were changing, and that staunch members of the union woere be ing victimised through their loyalty. A meeting of 87 delegates, repre senting the 33 mines, and ten members of the Miners' Association, including Messrs Toomey (president), and Tom Matthews (general secretary), was held.this evening, by permission of the authorities, to consider the question of resuming...

"I cannot wait. it seems to Iwe as if something pressing, impetuous, fatal, is being cofnpleted, and not a calcu lated work of construction." So begins, an extraordinarily vivid account of a visit to the Panama Canal by Luigi Barzini, in the "Daily Tele graph." He won some renown in the Balkan war through his wonderful pen ...

BEWILDERED BOOT DEALERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 24 January 1914
BEWILDERED BOOT DEALERS. The first inquiry held by the Inter state tcommission does not seem as if it would bring much comfort to those ra bid protectionists who have been clam ouring for years as to the necessity for the relier of strangled industries. of which the boot trade was said to be the chief. Unfortunately, although on most matters the various witnesses called by the trade to support the ap plication, were at cross purposes, they have been almost unanimous in showing, under cross-examination, that the trade is exceedingly prosperous de spite the low duties. - One. witness, who admitted that his firm's profit of £14,000 a year meant an 8 per cent. re turn on the capital invested, was:wisely silent when he was asked if he did not think it unreasonable to ask an increase of 20 per cent. on the boot duties so that he might increase his profits by 2 per cent.
A BAD BUNGLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 24 January 1914
A BAD BUNLE.' i The new City Courts were "opened with lmuh ceremony and many expres sions of pleasure that Melbourne was at last furnished with a Court House worthy of the city. From,the .outside the building seems to be alltbhat can be desired, and is indeed a magiificent addition to the architecture of, th"ecity The second day of use told, however, a very different tale, since ac'cording to those having business there, the new courts are everything a public .building should not be. Lawyers and the Piess cannot hear witnesses, while the mem bers of the Bench, wnho are not as a rule remarkable for acuteness of heiriirg, are completely at sea as to what even police witnesses say. In addition, thear ehitcets appear to have completely for gotten to make any provision for ven tilation; and all who could get away from the court fled as swiftly. as pos sible, when from the close packed anu dienee there arose, in all its unpleasant fragrance, that odor peculiar to Police Court frequenters....

SATURDAY, JANUARY 24, 1914. Again with the occurrence of sum nier weather, typhoid fever has once more made its appearance in the town, aid quite a number of cases are re ported. In our issue of Tuesday last we announced that ten eases were under ti?:atment, eight. being 'in the Ararat Bospital and two at Bewley, and since then a further case has been sent to the former institution, and several sus picious cases are under observation.

ELECTORAL REFORM. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 24 January 1914
ELECTORAL REFORM. Notwithstanding the labors of one electoral committee of inquiry that whltceaslhed the present Federal sys teal, and the appointment of another, it is not felt by the Cook Government that matters are right in the Electoral Department. Apparently but little re sult is expected from the labors of the recently appointed Electoral Commis sion, none of the members being regard ed as strong men, and so it is whisper. ed in Ministerial circles that an effort is to be made by Ministers themselves to fix up the electoral rolls, which are admittedly in a. very unsatisfactory condition, and to clear up matters gene rally is the department. To this end it is quite possible that Mr Kelly may he relieved of the 'charge of the Elec toral Department, so that he may de vote his time to the ordinary business of the hlome Affairs Department and the ever increasing work in connection with the Federal Capital ind''trans continental railway. _ Those best. able to judge say very decidedl...
