TOURING PLANETS VOYAGE THROUGH SPACE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 12 March 1914
TOURIIiN PLANETS VOYAGE THROUGH SPACE. "First stop Mars." It sounds adven turous, but then if your car is the tele scope and your conductor Professor H. ffI. Turner (says "The Daily Telegraph" of January 5) you soon discover that the journey of a few million miles to Mars is a mere fleabite to the distance covered and the sensations enjoyed be fore you are back again at the start Ing point in the lecture room of the Royal Institution in Albemarlo street. In a flash on Saturday afternoon we were at the end of the first stage of the journey. True, we had not quite got tbe length of Mars, but the big telescipe had used its seven league boots to some purpose, and before wondering eyes a big globe was floating on the screen, the planet Mars as near as human agency has so far brought it. We loik ed for canals and possible signals from the Martians, but whether it was that the Inhabitants had not heard of cur tour or were disgusted with the liberties taken with their sphere they made no si...
OFF THE EARTH! NOVICE'S ADVENTURE ON SKI. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 12 March 1914
OFF THE EARTH!i NOVICE'S ADVENTUREi ON SKiI. (By a special correspondent In "The Daily News and Leader"). You soon learn that winter sport in tihe Alps means really skltl-lng. The skaters are a small and artistic class apart. Toboganning is a healthy and vivacious sport for children and those who are child-hearted. Sleighing, well wrapped up in furs, with pIlumed horses and bells a-jingle, is for rich Germans. Bob-sleighing is excellent communal fun, requiring considerable skill for such a run as the full length of the Cresta. But ski-ing is for those who are young and adventurous, who love to range on mountain slopes instead cf a rink behind the hbtel, and who are sound in wiid and limb. The man who is just beginning to wonder whether he is too old at forty and is a ndwcomer looks upon the young and ruddy ski-ers at the hotel as an elderly farmer regards Hamel at Hendon. Ah! new blood, supple limbs, and exquisite skill! The lucky young rogues! He merely listens with interest to the...
"FLAPPER" AT THE DANCE [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 12 March 1914
"FLAPPER" AT THE DANCE (By Duncan Swann in "The Daily Mail.") It was her long mauve legs and the bow to match in her hair that first at tracted me as I leant against the ball room wall idly watching the gyrations of the dancers. She was waltzing with a youth from Eton at the time, of the same immature age as herself, and wore a look of profound boredom that I attributed partly to the unskilled movements of her partner, partly to the fact that the occasion was that anoma lous function, a Christmas party, at which all ages from 12 to 70 are repre sented and the young married women are in unfair request. Just as the band struck up the next item I crossed to where she was wrin kling her pretty forehead over the hieroglyphics on her programme. "Are you engaged for this?" I asked, with the unconscious patronage of the forties towards the teens. "I don't think we've been introduced," she rbplied with hauteur, tossing a mass of .fair hair out of her eyes. "I-I beg your pardon," I stammered,...
MILLIONS FOR WORKERS PROFIT-SHARING SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 12 March 1914
MILLIONS FOR WORKERS PROFIT-SHARING SCHEME. Mr Henry Ford's scheme to dlstri buto. £2,000,000, representing approxi mately one-half of the profits of the Ford Motor Car Company, among the employes attracts universal attention (says the New Yorkl correspondent of "The Daily Telegraph" on January 7). Additonal details from Detroit, fur nished by the secretary of the com popny, are to the effect that employes will share in the profits annually, and no employs over the age of 22, not even floor-sweepers, will receive less thn £1 daily. Mlr Henry Ford, the originator of the scheme, is quoted as declaring that capital and labor hith erto have not shared profits to the ex tent they should. As to the possibility otl osses, nothing definite is forthcom-i ing from Detroit so in, but every mechanic in the Unlted States now contemplates offering his services to the Ford Motor Company. "The greatest revolution in the mat ter of rewards for workers ever known in the industrial world," is the de s...

It was in the followioeg laconic terms: "Seventeen hundredi cubic yards conorete, fie hundred and twenty yards brickwork." That works out that the payment due to the Urban Trust is about £9 5s. This total quite.upset the equanimity of one of the commissioners at the meeting of the Urban Trust on Tuesday evening, for he had been aotici pating a round £40 or so.
