RAPID LIFE NO TRUE SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 14 February 1914
RAPIID LIFE NO TRUE SOCIETY, Life has become extremely sensa tlional and "rapid" on its outer surface; the women, who were the element of "qculietlin" in the generation anid generations which preceded ours, hav ing acquired a greater restlessness and a keener appetite for show and moce ment than the men, writes Mr II. W, Massinghanl in the "Daily News," Spiritual restlessness keeps pace with his physical instability: A cloud of new doctrines, expedients, remedies, enthus iasm, aspirations, and exhalations of the perturbed mind of the age fills the air. It is hard to keep men's minds on ends which they really desire; so ,on fused is the intelligence, and .so per turbed the conscience, of the directing or the enjoying multitude, A certain superficiality and light heartedness characterise the philan thropies as well as the self-seeking of our times. Politics are becoming singu larly bitter in their expression and highly organised in their form; but tin dividing lines of parties are not...

ALPINE JOY PARADISE OF SNOWS [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 14 February 1914
ALPINE JOY PARADISE OF SNOWS "Who can forgot the seven miles of glacier that he descended in one un broken motion?" asks Mr Arnold Lunn, in the course of an article in "The Cornhill Mlagazine." "Tile slope was so even and unchang ing that lie seemed to be standing still while the valley glided upwards and the bounding cliffs moved by to a stately measure. Then slowly the earth lost its swiftness. There was a Slight pressure on the soleo of his feet, as the glacier stopped moving and the snows came to rest, But these things must he felt. "I can never look from the windows of a great hotel, out on to the snows of old adventure, without a quickening of the pulse and an over-mastering de sire for the secret and silent valleys where gymkhanas cease from troubling ntll thli tllrkey trots no more. Just a.I surely as autumn calls the swallow to tile south, so the shortening of the days carries a warrant from the white Paradise whose magic casements reveal some vision of ultimate beauty, PER...

CLOSER SETTLEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 14 February 1914
OLOSER SETTLEMENT, TnE report of the sub committee of the lasb Watt Ministry upon the work of the Closer Settlemenb Board does nob make pleasant reading, Novorthpleoo there is nothing in it to warrant panio upon the part of either the Government or the taxpayer., There have been, it seema, several mitakeoo in working out the policy of closer settlement, Some of these have been due to faulty legislation, and some to a want of common sense in the administration of the Act.

The intention of Parlia. mont was to encourage people who wanted to go upon the land, It was provided that tho Closer Settlement Board should purchase suitable estates, that these should be out up into farms, which should be effered for settlement on unusually easy terms of payment, The policy has been carried out for several years Land to thi value of between X£2,000,000 and £3,000000 has been purchase...
