WAY TO PREVENT STRIKES. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 24 February 1914

WAY TO PREVENT STRIKES. . Mr Patrick Hegarty, a leading -master butcher?- and ex-vice president of the Sydney Master ' Butchers' Association, has hit upon a method of preventing strikes which he thinks will seldom, if ever. fail. "Thnre is only one way to prevent strikes," he said on Saturday. "The Government, whenever trouble is threatened, should issue ballot papers to the members of the union concerned. If a man is single, and has nobody aotually dependent upon him, he should receive one ballot paper, but a man who has a wife and four ohildran should receive six ballot papers. The wife and children are the first to suffer at strike time. There is nothing more riathetic than to see little children hungry. Many of these strides are brought iihout hy irresi n nib|p yountt men. The averaire married man with a family will not stride unless I here is a solid grievance, but often times he is outvoted, and when a married v: i« voting on a Government paper he will remember . ! . children,...

PLOT TO BREAK PRISON GUARD INCREASED Sensational stories were current In Hie week of an alleged plot to rescue Stlnto Morrison from Parkhurst Prison, where he Is serving a life sentence for the murder of Leon Beron on Clapham Common (states Lloyd's News, Novem ber SO).

It was a case of "house full" (says the "Daily News" of October 24). The famous comedian spoke on his pet subject, the- treatment of pit ponies, and gave his audience a little personal history, dating back to the days when, as a lad, he drove a pony In a pit. His pony was a black one, with a long, shaggy mane. "Captain" was his name, and he was "a wee pony for work." . One day, when Lauder was seated In the "hutch" which the pony was draw ing, the animal suddenly stopped and wheeled round, and Immediately after wards several hundred tons of rock fell from tho roof on to the spot where ho would have been had the animal continued on its way. "It was through the pit pony that T am here to-day," he said, "and that Is why the pit pony will always have...

CHAPTER XIII. Netta Recovers. Before Gwendolen, in her assumed character of a gipsy fortune-teller, left the fainting Netta in her little drawing-room in Heath Villa, s" e rang the electric ibell-and had barely closed the front door of the little house upon herself before it was an swered by the eager Annie, who had waiLed impatiently to hear her young mistress's experiences with "the Queen of the Gipsies," as the cook de clared she must 'be. Annie, hurrying in, flushed with ex citement, looked around in astonish ment, for there seemed to be ne'ther Miss Sayers nor the mysterious gipsy woman in the room. Then she saw her mistress lying in a heap on the floor, and gave a shriek which brought the buxom, wall-eyed cook hurrying in. "There, now! I said it would toe!" panted the cook, as she assisted An nie to lift the unconscious Netta upon the couch. "I knew as 'ow that bless ed queen was a-keepin' of facts for 'er. It's all 'er!

As Gwendolen remained staring at that ring-speechless-the girl '.urnad paler and paler; at least, her lily whiteness assumed a lividity which to anyone who loved her would have, been alarming. Why, she was wondering, why had this gipsy woman-for she was com pletely unsuspicious that the fortune teller was a lady, masquerading seemed panic-struck when she looked at her hand? Was the awful story or the last year graven on her p*im in those intricate lines which 3ho had often examined, with speculation as to their real import? "What is wrong with my hand?7' she almost "walled. Gwendolen came to herself with a start. In an instant she had summoned her self-possession. She shook her head doubtfully. "You must remove that ring-yoiir be trothal ring, madam, is it not?-before I can read your future," Bho said, re suming her chanting tones and for eign accent. "That ring cri...

COMPULSORY MARRIAGES. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 27 February 1914

COMPULSORY MARRIAGES. Kings of Siara apparently do not believe in tlie wisdom of allowing single women to drift unattached about thS country. In certain districts after a girl has reached an age where her securing for herself a hus band is considered doubtful, she be oomes a "daughter of the King." That is, tho King takes upon himself the task of settling hor suitably in life. His process is quite simple and to tho point. He proceeds to the Siamese penitentiary and looks over the various prisoners. There is a law in Siam that any prisoner can obtain his release by marrying one of this class of girls, ancf naturally enough, any prisoner who.n the King picks out is not likely to be 1 backward about consenting to tho j ceremony. Nor does it make any dif ference if he is married, for the men of that country are not restricted to one> wife. As far as can be learned, there is no allowance made for the inclination of the girl in question. She has failed in her mission in life as far. as...
