IN WILD MONGOLIA PEOPLE ARE STIRRING [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 12 March 1914

IN WIlD MONOOLIA PEOPLE ARE STITRRING Sir Francis Younghusband, K.C.I.E., in a fine article in the "Saturday Re view," says: "All Asia has of late been stirring into life. And now in the very bIart of the continent, in its deepest. re mnotest, least accessible parts there is movement. ' "Even in wild, lone Mongolia there Is a quickening into life. The dull, lethargic, heavy Mongola are bestirring themselves. They have long been In censed at the gradual encrachment of the Chinese traders and agriculturists upon their pasture lands. 'they have resented the Chinese demand on them for military service. As long as the Manchu Emperors exercised over them a mild and lenient suzerainty they were willing to be included In the Chinese Empire. But when the Man chu Dynasty fell and the control came into the hands of the Chinese, to whose growing pressure on thenm they so much objected, then they revolted ng.ainst such authority: they declared their independence of China; they as serted their an...

HEALTH OF THE CHILD LESSON FROM NEW ZEALAND (By Mrs. J. A. Hobson in "Dally News and Leader.") There are many important things to be "dono in England before she can vindicate her claim to be a pattern of civlllsation. About three of these things public opinion has been aroused, and we are promised small holdings, better housing, and higher wages. But if we are to rdap the full benefit of these reformns there is a fourth no less important question which is Just beginning to attract attention. What is the character of thie homes in which the majority of the nation's children are being dragged up to-day? For both hIealth and illness, like chlarlty, begin at home. The diffcul ties, although largely economic, are not entirely so. The medical officer of Islilngton says in a recent report: "There are far too many men who earn good wages living in homes that are most unsatisfactory in every way," andl declares thie Ignorance of the vorking man's wife to be "something appalling"; that abshe ...

DANDF , TIaURDAY, M.xRCrr 12. DISTRICT NWVE8. LYNDHURST SOUTH. The dry spell of 'weather is caus ing much alarm to residents, almost atl are getting short of water for s.tock. and some have to obtain drink inrg water from more fortunate neighbours There is a feeling to join the Frankston shire by annexing a good pottion of the Cranbourne riding to within a stone's throw of the newly erected shire hall at Cranbourne. Ratepayers contend that the Cran bourne council does not give anythin in return for the rates collected. The state of the road leading to Sea. ford station, along Ballarto road, is simply disgraceful. The wilds of Gippsland are only a comparison. The valuations put on the rateable property by the above council is absurdly high on properties here, and to get nothing done to the roads makes ratepayers consider, on a one shilling and sixpenny rate. Years ago we did get a little done, but now there is nrothing. So agita tion for a fresh field is no wonder. The council should...

Mr Henry Ford, the orilginator of the scheme, Is quot.d as declaring that capital and labor hith erto have not shared profits to the ex te t they should.

She was waltzing with a youth from Eton at the time. of the srame immaturoe age s herself, and wore a look of profound boredom that I attributed partly to the unsktlled moveomcnts of her partner, partly to the fact that thile occasion was tlhat anoma lous funotlon, a Christmas party, at which all ages fromn 12 to 70 are repre sented and the younlg lmarried women are In unfair request Just as tile band struck up the next item I crossed to whllere slhe was wrin kling her pretty forehead over tilhe hieroglyphlics on her programme.

Ftrnm that altitude the whole of lerwickl township could" be supplied. An oil engine ant. a 2 inch pipe would meet the re luire ments.
