CARAPOOEE WEST. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 14 February 1914
OARAPOOEE WEST. -4-~---- (F'ron our own correepondent,) Once again the strenuous time of har. vesting Is over, and grain carting about completed. Taken altogether the crops turned out most satisfactorily, and farmers have no reason to grumble at the results of their past oeason's operations, The low price that has been ruling for oats being unprofitable, most farmers are holding this cereal for a risooe. Should the autumn prove dry, no doubt their expectatlons will be realised, Wheat s consldered payable at present prices and yet some growers are speculating on a further ad. vanoo and holding their grain, Not much hay was made thle year, the price not offdring uflicelont inducement, As usual the annual complaints of the oxcessoeivo dearness of bags was heard. Iaoh year a big sllo of the farmer's profit is out out of his returns by thls Item. A little more agitation by the farmers them. solves would do much to help forward the doesirable handling In bulk system, whloh is the only rli...

INDIANS IN NATAL ONLY COURSE. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 14 February 1914
I DIANS IN NATAL ONLY COURSE, Replying to an address to-day from the Mahajana Sabha (Indian Mercantile Association) and the Madras Provin cial Congress Committee, Lord Hiar dingo the Viceroy (according to Rou tor's Madras correspondent in the "Daily News" of November 27), said:, The position of Indians in South Africa has for some years past received the most anxious consideration of the Indian Government, which is doing all in its power to ensure them fair treat ment. The Union Act of which you complain has in practice the effect of puttloig a stop to Asiatic emigration to South Africa, although it does not discrimin ate in so many words against Asiatics. We, however, succeeded in securing the privilege of entry for a limited number of educated Indians annually, We also specially endeavored to secure as favorable terms as possible for the Indians already resident in the Union, and our efforts resulted in the inclusion of provisions for the right of appeal to the courts on points of...

ART OF COOKING FLAVORINGS OF FLOWERS [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 14 February 1914
ART OF COOKINGi FLAVORIINGS OF FLOWEIRS Having attacked nearly every settled idea in art, music, poetry, and dress, the Futurists are now trying to under mlino our tastes in food (says the "Daily News"), They begin their con spiracy by telling us flatly that for over four centuries there lai not been a new dish invented. Mr Jules Manlcavo, the Futurist chef, who is responsible for this declaration, comes of cooking stock, ls fatherllo and grandfather were chefs, and his brother is a chef. Mr Manicavo accuses ordinary expo nents of the art of cooking to-day of having tied themselves to the fetish of bay-leaf, parsley, mint, thyme, and onions for flavorings, to the complete neglect of the rose, the violet, the lily of the valley, the lilac, and the ver bena. "You cannot imagine what a chicken a la lily of the valley is like," he crieo lh ecstasy-but it sounds highly appe tlsing. The Futurist chef has been advisoe by a doctor at Nice, where he is now cooking, to bring his now art to En...

ME.LBOURNIE. (From our own Corrospondont),. PHNONNUL Off PAttLAMN'¶, The eleotors of Kaara Kara builded perhaps better than they know when they choseo M. J W. Pennington as esooesor in the Legislative Aesembly to Mr. Peter M'Brldo, From the time that gentleman was seloeted by the Government to speak to the address in reply the honourablo member has continued to ereate a favourablo im pression, Different factors have gone to the making of a pnpularity that holders for a much longer period of political position mighb envy. Mr. Pennington is not one of those mem bore who are obsessed with the idea that it is incumbent on a Parlia. mentarian to be continually bulking largoly in the eye of the HIouse or of his immediate publco; that unless Iho is incesoantly jumping up to assure Mr. Speaker that he would not have risen but for such and uoch he would not have done so and so, The elect of Kara Kara is a quiet self contained man ; one who is fully aware of his own political limitations; one...
THE COMING STRUGGLE. IMPORTANCE OF ORGANISATION. [CONTRIBUTED.] [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 14 February 1914
THE OOMING STRUGGLE. IMPORTANCE Of" ORGANIS ATION, [CoNw'tIUTED,.] There are many Liberals who fall to roaliso the importance of organisation, Labor is always organised ; there are uore than four hundred thousand adult unionists in the Commonwealth, and the vast majority, practically the whole, of the unions are political bodies, Liberal organisation is difficult, The reason in simple ; Liberalism stands for the freedom of the individual, There is no particular olass inteorest which binds Liberals together as trade unionists aro united by a desire to raise their wages. The supporters of the Liberal party are drawn from all classes, to preserve the highest traditions of the British race, At the present moment this question of organisation is of more than ordinary importance, There is little doubt that the double dissolution is compar. atively near, Labor's victory in Now South Wales has inspired it with the fighting spirit, A few months, even a few weeks back it feared fight, but now...
PERFORMING ANIMALS CRUELTIES IN TRAINING [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 14 February 1914
PERFORMIN(i ANIMALS CRUELTIES IN TRAINING Many allegations were made against trainers at a meeting held last night in the Kensington Town Hall to pro test against cruelty to performning animals (reports "The Daily Telegraph" December 16). The audience, of whom the majority were ladies, indicated un mistakably that they felt strongly on the matter; but a few of those present, headed by Captain Woodward and Mr Glnnett, made vigorous protests against certain of the charges of the speakers on the ground of their vagueness. A number of letters were read from sympathisers, among them being: Lord Morley of Blackburn: I can only say that I have the most intense ab horrence of all performances that in volve helpless animals in wanton suf fering. fMr C. Bernard Shaw: A performing animal trained by kindness would be just as intolerable and unnatural a spectacle as one trained in the usual way. MIr Jerome K. Jerome: My objection to the performing quadruped is the in Jury he causes to the human ...

The 86 wo men in the census returns are olther managing the businoess of thleir late Ihusbands or are in lpartnlertshl)p with relatives. There is only on1e woman pllumbller in the Post-offieo Diroctory, and a "Daily News" represelntative, inquir ing at her place of business at Pim lico, gathellred that while she was fully capable of doing the work of a prac tical man, having learngd in the course of manly years all that it plumber should know, she was not propared to undertako the actual manual labor in separable from that occupation. Plumbing is a man's work.
