No Title [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 January 1914
ExaAmITInos of the motives that have actuated the militant suffra gettes of England, and the reasons that prompted extreme violence, with the ultimate admission of com plete failure, is not lackiug in in terest even for ourselves. All these are thoughtfully marshalled by a suffragette in the "Fortuightly." She laments the failure; she dis· covers its cause in a wrong begin ning; and Ehe counsels the alternate policy of an appeal to the popular intelligence rather than the persist ence in violence. The revolt of the suffragettes, in its more extreme fashion, originated in 1905. It has since been killed, our authority admits, as all movements that lack reality are killed, by the blindness of its adherents. It has lost the public ear, it has alienated popular sympathy, it has stirred the whole nation to the need of resisting violence. And it has become politically futile. And the reason ? Because, says our critic, of its artificia!ity. Instead of the search for " real victims" of sex-i...
CARISBROOK. DANGER OF FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 January 1914
CARISBROOK. DANGER OF FIRE. On Tuesday some excitement was caused in a portion of the town by a sudden burst of emoke, and the call-much dreaded-of fire. Thei cause of the alarm was children playing with matches and lighting tiny bonfires of grass and thistles, which very quickly got out of their control. Fortunately neighbors and passersby were handy, and the con flagration smothered early, but not before fencing was set burning and a wooden stable singed by the flames, as well as a dwelling threatened with destruction. At this time of the year especially it would be well if the danger of fire could be impressed on the young folk'

WATER SUPPLY FOR STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 23 January 1914
WATER SUPPLY FOR STOCK. An old friend of our London corres pondent, the leading dairyifarmer and breeder of Ayrshire cattle in the West of Scotland, writes to a local paper on this important subject which, he says, receives too little attention from the stock owners: - o80 long an an animal will drink it, no water is considered too foul for horses or cows. Not only is this ne glect on the part of stock owners rea ponsible for many cases of colio in hor ses, but many other diseases also are directly traceable to impure water. Aa unlimited supply of good, pure water is essential to tlhe health of all animals used for farm purposes. Pools formed from surface drainage, where large quantities of organic matter are car ried into them, and wells or pools contiguous to farm yards or manure heaps are specially to bo avoided. Water from good tanks or wells, run ning streams, and properly construc ted pools is usually good, but too muclch care cannot be taken in this matter. The quantity of wa...

RAILWAYS V. TALBOT. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 26 January 1914
RAILWAlYS V. TALOT. There was a small attendance at the oval to see this match,'and most spectators were sorry they came, for the game was riot worth looking at. Talbot was represepted by only a remnant of their former team, the heart having been taken out of them by the loss- of Baker. The other two bowlers, Eaves and Deans, did not come across, and the wicket keeper, Wardley, was content to look on. It was only to be expected, then, that the visitors would stand no chanice. :However, they made a gallant~ attempt at a decent start, and the first- few bats did fairly well. :Ead and. Howard made the best stand, -the latter pleasing him self :immerisely by putting togetheir 24. The later batsmen were mowed down by Ryan, who, bowling a nice length,:'executed. the "hat trick," and finished up with the excellent average of 7i for 21. The total was 85. Though Talbot had no regular bowlers they soon began to get. Rail way wicketsi::, the home team open ing with their indifferent batsmen. K...
