TESTING DAIRY COWS. ACTION AT COLAC. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 25 February 1914

TESTING DAIRY COWS. '!• ACTION AT COIyAC. At the half-yearly meeting of the Colac Butter Factory Co. a letter was received from the P. and A. Society, bringing- under notice the importance of starting a dairy test association in the district. Mr. Meredith held that without increasing- the number of cows it was possible to increase the butter reti.rns by at least 25 per cent, by ado| ting a system of testing. Each supplier could be supplied, with sample bottles, scales, etc. It was proposed to take two samples a month, and the bottles would be returned to the factory, where the testing would be doue. Each mouth the returns would be sub mitted, and the dairymen would know exactly what each cow was worth. He moved that a special meeting of the shareholders be held to inquire into the matter. He contended that it took 200lbs of butter fat a year at Is per lb. for a cow to pay her way. Under the system of testing it was possible to find out the cows which were , "robbers," and replace th...

LIBRARY WAR ENDS. OBNOXIOUS NOTICE TO GO. Ballarat Monday. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 25 February 1914

LIBRARY WAR ENDS. -*■ OBNOXIOUS NOTICB TO GO. Ballarat Monday. "Ladies and subscribers only : Public entrance ground floor," is a notice which must come down from the city free library. Victory la a little warfare thus rests with' tlie Trades' and Labor Council. ' Mr. John Murray, the Chief Secretary, has delivered the ulti matum, as requested, that the rvhole of the library must be accessible to general public, and, that the notice must be removed. The subject first cropped up tfben the Trades Council protested against the action of the library committee in displaying the notice above the entrance to the library proper. It was contended that to deprive the public of free access to all parts of the library and , of all privileges save that of a circulating library, was a violation of the con ditions governing State grants to libraries. The library committee resented the Trade Council's interference, and said that it was quite able to manage its own affairs. The Trade Council, undism...

OUR TELEPHONE SYSTEM. WARRNAMBOOL UP IN ARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 25 February 1914

OUR TELEPHONE SYSTEM. WARRNAMBOOIv UP IN ARMS. At the meeting of the Warrnam bool Chamber of Commerce, held on Thursday night, Mr. J. C. Manifold, M.H.R., forwarded a letter from the Postmaster-General regarding the Chamber's request that the automatic telephone system be installed at Warrnam bool. The letter was to ii effect that the installation of such an equipment to an exchange having only 306 subscribers' lines was not considered justifiable. So long as the manual equipment gave efficient service there was no necessity to install other equipment at Warr nambool. Major Foote said the point was that they did not get an efficient service at present. Mr. Russell said there were fre quent delays in answering sub scribers and the telephone receiver often gave people communicating a severe shock in the ear liable to cause deafness. This was a very serious defect in the present ser vice. Dr. Powell said he had been in formed that the Department ex pected the number of subscribers at W...

THE STAGPOOLE FAMILY. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 25 February 1914

THE STAGPOOLE FAMILY. The Stagpoole Family will re visit Mortlake on Monday night, with an entire change of pro gramme—everything new and sparkling. The great feature of the programme is the marvellous impersonation of Alick as the music teacher, and the wonderful tricks of Ted as Jacko, the funny Monke3r. The Adelaide paper says: "Ted Stagpoole, whose eccentric comedy acrobat turn is making a sensation in Adelaide with his'wonderful tumbling feats and his quaint comedy." One paper in the United States opined that "Australians do not appre ciate acrobats." Said the paper in question : "if there are any more at home in Australia like the Stagpooles, it is to be hoped that they will find their way to Denver. There are a lot of people here who would only be too glad to cable them minute travelling instruc tions, and the cablegram would not be sent c-o-d either. There is an undefinable fascination about these people from far away, before they do more than just show theni selues. When th...

LEOPARD ESCAPES FROM ZOO. YOUNG WOMAN CHASED. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 25 February 1914

LEOPARD ESCAPES FROM ZOO. YOUNG WOMAN CHASED. Having escaped before daylight on Saturday morning from the strong box in which it had been temporarily housed in the Zoolo gical Gardens, a fierce leopard bad ly frightened the Misses Aline, Rita, and Hilda Le Souef, the daughters of the director of the gardens, Mr. J. I,e Souef. Then despite efforts to trace and capture it, the animal leapt the fence and wandered into' Barclay street, Brunswick, where, after terrifying Mrs. J. Walters, and chasing her daughter Winnie into the house, it took refuge in a tree in the back yard, and was there shot while fiercely attempting to charge Mr. Joseph C. Lacey, a neighbor, who had come to the rescue. Having despatched the brute with three bullets from his service rifle, Mr. Lacey calmly rang up the Zoologi cal gardens and informed the anxious director that he could take delivery of the carcase at his con i venience.

CRICKET. MORTLAKE V COBRICO. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 25 February 1914

/CRICKET. MORTLAKE V COBRICO. Mortlake journeyed to Terang on Saturday to play their last match with Cobrico iu connection with the District competition. A bold bid for victory was made, but the time limit robbed Mortlake of gain ing four point;;, and the match was drawn considerably in their favour. A victory would have placed Mort lake four points in the lead for the premiership, and with only one more match would have given them an excellent chance in winning the pennant. Now the club is only two points to the good, and as Noorat are almost certain to beat Cobrico on the their own ground, that club will then lead by two points. Mortlake and Noorat play on 7th March, and as it is more than likely that a drawn game will result. Noorat will be premiers. Of course it is possible for either side to get a straight out yictory, but judging by past games it is more than probable that the inevit able draw ivill be the result. How ever, the Mortlake players intend putting in solid practice...

WOMEN SHOULD WEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 25 February 1914

WOMEN SHOULD WEEP. "For women, a capacity for tears is worth cultivating," says a famous "beauty speciality." , "Tears—warm and ready ones—are a sure preserva tive of feminine beauty. "Tsars are the natural outlet of emo* tlon, a .sort of liquid lightning-rod which dissipates excitement and pa« eion. "The woman who cannot weep Is she who ^keeps up her powers of thinking, and whor.e facia/® ;nes and grey hairs come reanily. Not only does a lack of tears score heavily against one's freshness of face, but it has a marked effect in general tem perament. "Women who weep easily have cor respondingly light hearts, tender, de monstrative, and impulsive ways, and t charm which dry-eyed women lack."
