MAKING SOLDIERS [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 24 January 1914
I?AKINti SOLDIERS Speaking at a dinner given in his honor by the Society of Authors in London on November 27, Field-Mar shal Lord Roberts touched upon the necessity for having men trained for the field. They could not be trusted, he said, no matter what their courage might be, to fight an enemy unless they were trained. He could give them many instances of what could be done by a very few trained soldiers, men who believed in their own skill with their arms and who trusted their comrades alongside them or even at great dis tances apart. lighting nowadays was a different thing from what it was even in the days of the Crimean War, the Indian Miutiny, or the Peninsular War. The first battle he was at was at Delhi. At that time they were in close order, touching each other in fact. The non commissioned officers and men were shpulder to shoulder, and the firing commenced, as at Waterloo, at 40 or 50 yards distance. On the Heights of Abraham, Wolfe did not give the word until the French w...

FOX HUNTING PARSON YORKSHIREMAN APPRECIATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 24 January 1914
FOX=HUNTING PARSON YORKSHIREMAN APPRECIATES. As a Yorkshireman, as a fox-hunter, and as one who is happy in the pos session of many friends amongst the Anglican clergy who hunt, I am most anxious to raise a protest against the remarks of Sir Philip Burne-Jonei (writes Mr J. Fairfox Blakeborough, in the "Westminster Gazette"). On his own ipse dixit he practically excommunicates from the pale of Chris tianity all fox-hunters-especially hunt ing parsons-and at the same time gives pontifical censure to the Arch bishop of York for having lent his presence to the dedication of a stained glass window to the memory of a mudh-beloved and much-respected Yorkshire cleric who met his death on the hunting field. Sir Philip Burne Jones cannot understand those in or ders riding to hounds, or those profess ing Christianity enjoying venery. He argues, however, from the hack neyed premises - born of ignorance that the great joy of the chase, if not the be all and end all of it, is centred in the kill...

COTTON GROWING COLORED LABOR QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 24 January 1914
COTTON IOWLnUn COLORED LABOR QUESTION. One of the most advanced and in plIring ideas in constructive Imperial tatesmanship is the scheme of the Do minions Royal Commission for develop-. ing Australia as a cotton-producing country (says the "Standard" of No vember 29). The natural advantages of the nor thern part of the Commonwealth for this purpose impressed the members of the commission in their tour, and the members have fortunately not returned merely with hopeful and optimistic im pressions, but have gone a considerable distance along the road which turns ideas into sensible, practical, and work able plans. It li, cf course, not to be expected that Queensland and the Northern Ter ritory will immediately be turned into vast cotton fields as fertile as those which line the banks of the Mississippi, but the road towards that goal has been p ortially cleared, every possible and probable obstacle has been considered, and the future is bright. The commission discussed the sub ject wit...

CIILBREN'S NAMES ABORIGINAL SOURCE. Mir Coleman P. Hyman (Po)'.l Colonial Institute) writes to the "0l: server" (London) on November 13 as follows:- With reference to Mr J. Landfe.,r Lucas's letter in this week's "Obser ver," there is at least one other natiVe Australastan name in the Peerage. When Lord and Lady CarringtCn (now the Marquis and Marchioness cf Lincolnshire) were the occupants of Government House, Sydney, New South Wales, they named an infant daughter (now the Viscountess Bury) Judith Syldey M?yee. Te last name is pure ly aboriginal, and, if I remember :ight ly, signifies "native born." Another Peer's sojourn as Governor of an Australian State (Victoria) is brought to mind by the name of one of the sons of the late Marquis of Lilalith gow (then the Earl of IHopetoun). that eon having been namled Melbourne.

Evidence of a mother's long struggle against poverty was given at the in- quest on Saturday on Fanny Donald, aged 70, a laundry worker, of 63 Here- ford road, Dalston (reports the "Daily Mall" of December 6). &nbsp; Annie Donald, daughter, said that since her father died 40 years ago it had been one long struggle for her mo- ther to keep body and soul together. The witness's brother was ill in bed for 18 months until he died recently. His death preyed on her mother's mind, and she used to lie in bed and do no- thing but cry. Asked what her mother complained of, the daughter replied, "Her poor old back, which had been worn out with hard work." The witness became hys- terical, calling upon Heaven not to leave her to fight the battle of life alone, and had to be carried out of the court. The jury returned a verdict of death from heart failure.
