INTERESTING STAMPS £20,000 COLLECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 12 March 1914

INTERESTING STAMPS £20,000 COLLECTION. By Douglas B. Armstrong, in "The - Daily Express.") The beginning of a year is, appro priately enough, a favorite time lor the issue of new postage stamps the world over, and. a very considerable propor tion of the postal Issue of the past have mp.de their debut on January 1. The New Tear of 1U14 is likewise des tined to bring in its train some not able additions to the pages of the stamp album, although from a variety of causes It seems improbable that the new postage stamps issued during the year will bo anything like equal to the somewhat abnormal output of 1S113. This supposition is based on the fact that within the past twelve months the Issue of Georgian postage stamps, in place of those bearing the likenes3 of King Edward VII., by the British do minions beyond the seas has been prac tically completed, and most of the Por tuguese and many of the French colo nies have been provided with new stamps, while countries like Japan, China, Denmar...

EMPIRE HARBORS [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 12 March 1914

EMPIRE HARBORS Lord PirritThas submitted to the Do minions Royal Commission an interest ing memorandum 011 the development of Imperial and other harbors from the point of view of shipowners and ship builders (says "The Daily Telegraph" of January S). He entirely adheres to the views he expressed to the Select Committee 011 steamship subsidies, in 1902, as to the desirability of providing deep approaches to the chief harbors of the Empire. Alluding to develop ments which have taken place since then, Lord Plrrie refers to tho "admir able scheme" in process of execution in the Port of London, but expresses the fear that at tho present rate of progress it will be quite inadequate by the time it is completed. With regard to other large ports, he mentions that the entrance of Port Phillip, at Melbourne, is steadily, if slowly, beiug deepened, but concerning two other. important trade centres, namely, the St. .

Bob-slelghing is excellent communal fun, requiring considerable skill for such a run ns tho full length o£ the Cresta.* But ski-ing Is for thoso who aro young and adventurous, who love to range on mountain slopes instead cf a rink behind tho hotol, and who are sound in wind and limb. Tho roan who Is just beginning to wonder whether he is too old at forty and Is a newcomer looks upon the young and ruddy ski-ers at. the hotel as an elderly farmer regards Hamel at, Hendon.
