YARPTURK [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 29 January 1914

YAtRPTURK The threshing machines are busy at the present time throughout the district. The yields are very different from what they were last year. Whereas last sea son up to 80 bushels of oats per acre were threshed, and 60 bushels and more of barley, the returns this season are much less. After such phenomenal yields as were experienced the previous season, it could not be ex pected that a repetition of the same would result. The potato crops, on the whole, are giving fair yields, but the price is not remunerative. When rent, up to £5 per acre, is paid, and cost of seed, labor for working and cleaning the crop, dig ging, carting, etc., are deducted, it can easily be seen that with potatoes at £2 to £2 10s per ton there is very little indeed left for the grower. The grass is now very dry. Milking cows have gone off rapidly, and dairy men's cheques are " growing beautifully less." Householders would welcome a good shower to replenish the domestic suoply of water. Mr W. Morton, a son...

Local & General News. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 29 January 1914

Local & General News. -LAND VAUATIONS DISAGREED WITH. -A large meeting of land owners was held at Mirboo North on Saturday last to receive the report of the deputation which waited on the Commissioner of 'Taxes in connection with the high valu ations put on district properties for State land tax purposes. The various members of the deputation stated that they could get very little satisfaction from Mr House, who met them. One important fact was learnt, and that was that any land owner could have a -re valuation by paying a small fee. The meeting decided to go to court in refer ence to their valutions, as a number "present said they could prove that the valuer had not gone over their proper ties. CAV?NDISH - TOOLONDO LINE. - In the Legislative Assembly on Tuesday, the construction of the railway line from Cavendish to Toolondo, 43 miles, was agreed to, on the motion of -Mr Mackin non, Minister of Railways, seconded by Mr J.

Cycling and Motoring Notes [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 29 January 1914

Cycling and Motoring Notes There is a possibility of Sydney having an up-to-date automobile racing track in the near future, as a, company, to be known as "Sydney Brooklands," is in course of formation. The proposal is to build a properly banked circular speedway similar to the great con crete track erected in 1907, at Brooklanks, England. An option has been secured on a suitable loca tion, 9 miles from Sydney, and should the necessary capital be forthcoming (some .40;000), it Swill not be long before the work of laying the track will be taken in hand.. R. Spears, the Australian racing cyclist, who hails from Dubbo, (N.S.W.), has been -responsible for some fine sprinting both in America and France, and good judges pre dict that this rider is rapidly work ing his way towards world's championship honors. Before leav ing America, Spears several times defeated F. Kramer, who has been champion of America for 12 years, and last year carried off the world's sprint championship.

T Dyspeptic's Handicap. The dyspeptie is sorely handicapped in -this'life; If he is a marn he can't, keep I .p.ce with his fellows because of the weakness, the depression, and the suffer ing that indigestion inevitably brings in I its train. If a woman, she often finds it Simpossible to carry out the daily house- | hold tasks, or meet the demands of a business occupation because headaches, distressing bilions attacks, palpitatio . and sleeplessness are spoiling her life. This streauous age wants men and women of strong fibre, boundless energy, :.and-great eheerfulness, but the dyspep tic is not amemgst the number. How can -he expect to be ? How can he hope to get through the day's work speedily and efficiently if his -mind is clouded and his system clogged with the poisonous pro ducts of indigestion ? How can any man, or woumal either, work well and cheerfully, when the well-springs of good health cad strength-the stomach, liver, and bowels-are disorganised and weakened ? t can't be...

SAFETY OF RAILWAYS EXPERT VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 29 January 1914

SAFETY OF RAILWAYS EXPERT VIEW. The -precautions against train wreck set forth by Major Pringle in his re port on the Aisgill catastrophe, and hi suggestions for minimising loss of lift in any future accident, were ensured ii advance of careful and critical publi, examination. Mr J. F. Gairns, of the "Railway Magazine," said yesterday (says the "Daily News" of November 27) tha there was - a growing tdndency to use steel underframes, and a considerable proportion of the rolling stock of the important British railways was already so fitted. Shock absorbing buffers were alread used on the District to some extent and were receiving the attention oi railway managers throughout the country. In America they were in mucl more general use, and further introduc tion here is probable. Of course, he said, the force of a col lision has to be distributed .somehow. If the carriages mount the frame the superstructure takes the force, but if the frame itself has to stand all the shock, the effects a...

DOCTOR AND LAW REMARKS BY JURY [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 29 January 1914

DOCTOR AND- LAW REMARKS BY JURY Strong remarks on the conduct of an Exetei doctor were made yesterday by jurymren at an inquest on a man named Thomas Humphreys, who died from col lapse after eating indigestible food (says the "Daily News" of November 14). Humphreys's son -said he went to fetch Dr. Black on: Wednesday morn ing. He told the servant to tell Dr. Black that his father was very ill, and that his mother would pay him when he came. The servant, he said, re -turned and asked if the father was in sured. Being told. that he was, he again returned and said: "The doctor says if your father is insured you must not disturb him again." IFumphreys then fetched Dr. Ajkins, but, when he, arrived his father, was, dead. Mr M. Browning (a juror): Don't you think Dr. Black was out of order in re fusing to attend a case of life and death? The Coroner: We have not Dr. Black here, but the.law is that a doctor is not bound to go. But we may think what we- like--about a- doctor who- refuses -t...

ARMY CUSTOMS CONTRASTS IN UNIFORM. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 29 January 1914

ARMY CUSTOMS CONTRASTS IN UNIFORM. Has anyone ever seen an officer in uniform going in or out of the War Office (except on the occasion of a royal function in London), or a Household Cavalry man walking about the streets in his " war paint?" If any of the major-generals employ ed at the War Office ventured to go to work there one day in any kind of uni. form, the odds are that the War Office doctor would be sent round to see whe ther anything had happened to the poor man's brains. It is not like that in France or Ger many. If you .visit a friend in the French War-Office, you will find him up to the.. chin in uniform as he sits behind his desk. All the officers in the place are in uniform. It is the same in. Berlin. In-our own War Office (says the "Daily Express") no officer wears uni form, andl it is doubtful whether the colonel of the Guards regiment in Lor, don puts his uniform on once a mon,h. He is in his office every day, but lie wears his own private clothes, and the only occa...

Geelong and Its Environs. 1860—1914—P. A. MCANULTY. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 29 January 1914

Geelong and Its Environs. 1860-1914-P. A. McANULTY. The beach frontages. Almost daily letters appear in the " Gee long Advertiser " calling attention to the necessity for improving, the beach frontages and approaches. Despite the many natural advan tages that Geelong possesses, its foreshores have long been neglected, and this is very noticeable along the eastern beach, where one has to trudge almost knee deep in loose sand, debris, and weeds in a frantic endeavor to reach the baths, botanical gardens, mineral springs, and other places of resort. The late Mr James Oddie, who was such a generous benefactor to the City of Ballarat, was formerly a resident of Geelong, and he proposed that an asphalt esplanade should be formed around the base 'of the slopes, that the promenades should be- lighted with electricity, and that during the summer season there should be band performances nightly for the pleasure of visitors. Such a proposal appears to .be exactly what is required to make the b...

PERFORMING ANIMALS TESTIMONY OF ACTORS [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 29 January 1914

PEIFORMINI ANIMALS TESTIMONY OF ACTORS The discussion of the question of the treatment of performing animals has naturally aroused considerable in terest among our readers, with the re sult that the contents of our letter-bag have been materially increased (says "Westminster Gazette" on November 20). Colonel J. G. Hawker calls attention to the current month's issue of the "Animals' Guardian," in which Mr Mark Melford, the well-known com edian,,and. Mr .C. E. Haverly, an actor of thirty years' experience, testify to the fact - that the most horrible tor tures. in very many instances are in flicted .upon performing animals. Mr Melford contends that talk alone will not stir the p'ulse of the public, and columns of press agony will fail to raise an eyelid, let alone a hand to help. It is necessary for the- public to be convinced by ocular demonstration that cruelty `exists, and then judgment and. punishment will quickly follow. And- as- a consequence, to quote his. own words, "the infer...

NEWS ONCE A YEAR WORLD'S LONELIEST MISSION. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 29 January 1914

NEWS ONCE .A YEAR.. WORLD'S LONELIEST MISSION. Half the staff of what is perhaps the loneliest mission station in the world is spending a brief furlough in Eng land. That half-staff is the Rev. S. M. Stewart, of the Colonial and Continen tal Church Society, whose. permanent address is anywhere in- Ungava, the great icebound- province between La brador and Hudson's Bay-a thousand miles further from civilisation than the scene of Grenfell's work in Labrador. The extent of his remoteness from the ordinary twentieth century world :n;ay be gauged by the fact that letters. are delivered in Ungava once a year (says the "Daily Mail" of November 27). WHEN THE.SHIP COMES IN. "The most anxious moment of the year," said Mr. Stewart, "is when the Hudson Bay Company's vessel from England is. sighted, and we are waiting to know whether she brings us good news or ill. A few years ago my fur lough was nearly due, and I was look ing forward to getting back to see my old father in Ireland. Then the sh...

"There are some flowers," he added, "which open only at twilight, but they are none the less sweet for that."
