MEAT BUYERS' ENTERPRISE STOCKOWNERS—ANXIOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

MEAT buyers' ENTERPRISE STOCKOWNJSRS- ANXIOUS. ; Several Americans connected with the meat-canning business were' pre sent-at the Homebushi saleyjcrds (Syd ney) recently, and this has caused some speculation as to whether, the ' Meat ' Trust intends erecting ' works in /New. South Wales on the same scale as Swifts', ill- Brisbane A sheep-breeder who visited Bris- - bane recently says that the works which are being built by Swifts are colossal. On the day that he visited the place there were 1200 workmen on the paysheet, and they*were using | 40,000 casks of cement for the rein forced concrete of the building. It was expected that the factory would cost £350,000 when finished. Stock owners regard the establish- . ment of American canning factories in Australia with mixed feelings. For a while it will mean that prices will be high, but it is feared that if a vast | factory is established, with branches in the principal States, the owners will j obtain a degree of power in being able t...

^ . MOTOR HELD UP ■ DRIVER'S WEARY WALK SIXTY HOURS -WITHOUT FOOD., v A party of motorists, who became stranded in the ranges at Matlock, iri the recent holidays, had most excit ing experiences. One of the members, Mr H. Scott, of St. Kilda, was for 60 hours without food, and more than 40 hours without water. He was rescued when he had made up his mind to meet death.

PILES. Piles rarely kill, but they c£.use constant torture. This is especially true in the case of Ifeose who are ever so slightly constipated. Piles can be quickly and permanently cured, without pain, cutting, or detention, from business. This has been proved in thousands of cases in both sexes, and of all ages, and in the very-worst as well as in ordinary cases. No one who has not suffered the torments of Itching, Painful, and.Bleeding Piles can appreciate for a moment the marvellous sense of relief that follows tiie use of Doan's Oint ment. Mr Thomas Stevenson, 22 Crulckshaal? street, Port Melbourne, savs:—"For ten years I have been a sufferer from Itching Pilos. I have been so bad at times I would have to leave my work and lay up for days. I suffered dreadfully at all times, but during the hot weather, and at night time I was neany driven mad. There~ is not a more trying ail ment than Itching Piles, for the irritation makes the day miserable, and keeps you awake" for hours at ni...

DRAUGHTS By "WHILTER." Finesse at End Play (No. 4) By S. B. Dawes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

By S. B. Dawes. Black.• White "White to move and win. At first glance the win looks easy, as White can capture a piece , by .6-2, 7-10, .2-6, 10-14, 6-9, 14-18, 9-14; but continue 18-23, 14-21, 26-31, 19-26, 31-22 and Black draws neatly. That line being disposed of, we must look for the win fci some other direction; but where? 19-15 is defeated by 7-10, 15-18, 17-21, 6-2, 26-22, and 6-1 is not of any use after 17-21, 19-15, 26-22. Therefore, -we must return to 6-2, and this is where the "finesse" comes in. We haVe seen how every line but this one allows a draw, and also -how one var. of 6-2 is draw able. The win is there, however, and by careful playing the task is accomplished in this manner:—. 6— 2 6 — 9 25-22 19-26 6- 9 14—IS 7—10 14—18 17—21 21—25 25—29 25—29 2— 6 29—25-a 9— 6* 26-80 9—14 18—22 10—14 18—23 26—17 17—21 29—25 W.W. (a) This is the move that, makes "all the difference."

Problem Chat [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

Problem Ghat Mr P. H. Williams has some interesting remarks in "The Inquirer" on the subject of weight of problems;—"There are some who say that a good problem should never have more than about 16 men. But it is extremely " difficult to secure originality and interest, a'nd, above all, variety under such conditions. Alter all, the science of problem construction is enormously exploited to-day, and there is always an increasing risk of treading paths already much worn by others. Games are, of course, in a totally different category, since their 'construction' is more or less a chance. There are two intellects conflicting, and con sequently the deadly accuracy found in a good problem is as a rule wanting in a game. One or other of the players (in the ease of the game having a definite result) must have played weakly somewhere, whereas in prob lems, the defeat of Black is an axiom. Thus it may be fairly argued that the moves in a problem are as near to perfect chess as they can well be...

CHAPTER 22. Tilbury Docks in the small hours of a wintry morning-. A frosty mist veil ed the masts of shipping and hung lammy curtains about the gas-lamps, obscuring their feeble glimmer. It trapped the smoke belching from tall funnels, and set it filtering through, to fall in wet, sooty particles in those raw-nosed wretched ones whose mis fortune it was to be in the vicinity, either from choice or necessity. The Sarawak had not sailed punctual ly. They had finished coaling her, re lays of cargo were being rushed into the hold, fore and aft, disconsolate passen gers who had arrived: early were watch ing the bustle with friends and rela tives who had come to see them off.
