ELECTRIC LIGHT: To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 9 May 1914
ELECTRIC ,LIGHT: To the Editor SIR,--As a ratepayer and lengthy resident of our town, it gave me in finite pleasure to see that steps are being taken by the general pub lic to help the,matter of installing electricity in -Queenscliff. I must offer my mede of praise to the very! worthy manner our councillors have stuck to their oars on the subject, despite the antagonism of the few interested opponents. I may say that I have given much thought to the municipalisation of light, and the further I go into the question as to how it would answer for Queenscliff, the more I am con vinced that our town 'fathers' are on the right track. We should own our own, even if only from the point of view that the better light ing of the town would be under personal superintendence, by which I mean that it would be unnecessary to enter into any fresh compact with the Gas: Company when an extension of lighting was deemed necessary. I hope, Sir, that the committee which has been elected to shed light' up...

Pioneers of the town will be invited, and no doubt many reminiscences of the early days will againi be recounted. ?'-It is hoped the Chief President of the association.wil be present, but up to the present nothiing definite is at hand.

THE DAIRY. A CALLING THAT IS NOT OVERCROWDED. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 9 May 1914
THE DAIRY. A CALLING THA-T IS NOT OVER CROWDED. Dairy farming may well be called -a profession. It takes into considera tion a knowledge of so many differ ent lines of work that a prolfcr fit ting for successfully carrying of dairying implies a mastery of more branches than are required in the preparation for almost any other line of work. Dairy farming has the further ad vantage of being the one profession that is not overcrowded. There are millions of mouths in this country that must he provided with food. It is the dairy farmers in a very large measure who must furnish this sup ply. Commercial stagnation, political uproars, financial depression, in fact any one of a hundred things may oc cupy the public mind and fill the press with scare heads, but under lying all this is the undeniable fact that men and women and children must have food. The greatest disas ter that could possibly overtake any country would be a scarcity of food. There is nothing that affects a man's disposition ...
To-day's Football Matches. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 9 May 1914
To-day's Football Matches. Cliff v Artillery, at Queenscliff. Field umpire-Feehan. Boundary-Cannon and Sissons. Port v Engineers, at Port. Field umpire-Shelly. Boundary-Allen and Harding. Interest will centre to-day in the match between Artillery. and Queenseliff, to be played on the local ground. Both teams will have all their available strength, and a well-fought game should be seen. It is to be hoped that the bad feeling which sometimes arises, at these matches 'will not appear. Feehan has been appointed central umpire. Engineers play Port at Port. It is- expected that the Engineers will be without the services of several of their best players, who have not recovered from the injuries received last Saturday,although a good team will be placed against the Ports. It is not unlikely that the Fire Brigade pictures for Friday next will include the famous picture, ' Flight from 'Pomieii.' Should the management succeed; an extra good evening i- assured.
A WEED ERADICATOR. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 9 May 1914
A WEED ERADICATOR. One of the greatest thorns in the side of farmers is the noxious weed curse. Chief among the pests is the blackberry and Californian thistle. The Government recognising the boon it would be if a cheap specific was placed upon the market, have offered substantial bonuses to the inventor of any system that would successful-* ly eradicate these pests. Naturally the Agricultural Department have stressed the fact that a cure must be permanent. Various specifics and. methods have been tried and found wanting. Under the direction of the Agricultural Department a prepara tion known as Long's Noxious Weed Destroyer has been put to a test at Parnell, near Auckland, and promises particularly well. A piece of land, which is completely overrun with blackberry has been treated under the direction of the Agricultural De partment. It is only a month or so since the weedkiller was applied, but judging by the several roots removed from the patch the destroyer has done its work well...

LIFE ON A SUBMARINE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 16 May 1914
LIFE ON A SUBMARINE. .----+----- The active service in submarines ise 'imited to a period of three weeks on end--during the summer, and one week during winter. The rest iof the year the officers and men live in v hat is called a "parent "-or 'mother" ship-but they "exercise" the boat three or four times a week, generally from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.,, go ing through various evolutions, such as diving and "attacking," and also torpedo-firing. Let us go down through the hatch way of the little conning tower. A few rungs of ladder and we reach the main deck, the only: deck, in fact, of the submarine, inside the " fish," in the hull. THE FIRST IMPRESSION is one of heat. The air is close and heavy, and, as a seaman expressed :it, "Ain't it thick, sir !" and he ad ded, "It soon makes you feel sleepy, but: they keep us so busy in here that we get over the drowsiness." How small ! The highest standing room( is lGft. Gin. high, and towards !toth ends the roof gradually declines and the fcor becomes...
SHRIEKS FROM A RAILWAY CARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 16 May 1914
H~IERIKS FROIVI A RAILWAY CARRIAGE. A young lady who is often seen on Birmingham concert platforms had a singular and amusing experience when returning with a friend from London. Just before reaching Ox ford the speed of the train began to slacken, and the engine to emit some particularly loud and piercing whistles. Our heroine pronounced the note to be C in fault, and was challenged by her companion to reach it. There being no one but the pair in the compartment she responded with a great expanse of lung power, and to such effect that the sound of the engine was as nearly as possible reproduced. Whistle fol lowed whistle, and to each an echo came from the throat of the singer. This continued for some minutes an til all at once the train slowed down and then stopped. Heads went to windows and it was evident some thing was wrong, for the guard was along peering Tuto each carriage. As he came to that in which - were the two ladies he repeated the query he had evidently been making at ...

Engineers v Port Match. PORTARLINGTON (6-12) Beat 1 ENGINEERS (4-4) ENGINEERS FULLY EXTEND THEIR OPPONENTS. GAME WON ON A DESPERATE EFFORT. The above match, which took place at Port on Saturday last, proved to be a very interesting game before victory was announ ced. It was only by final effort that the home team secured the win. Engineers had lead from the start up till a late stage in the final quarter, when their opponents over took them. The game wvas well fought, Ports making a great effort to remain the undefeated team. Cox made his first, and we understand his last, appearance for the season. This was the general opinion after the match. On the winning side Brown, MacLean, N. Grigg, Graham and Hitch did good service, while Mortimer, Leggett, Roddick, Thomas (2), Lethlein and Gilbert showed good form for the Engineers. Shelly umpired . well.

HEALTH NOTES: [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 16 May 1914
-- HEALTH NOTES.: First, live as much as How to possible out of doors, Sentury never letting a day pass without spending at least three or four hours in the open air. Second, keep all the powers of mind and body occupied in congenial work. The muscles should be developed and the mind kept active. Third, avoid excesses of all kinds, whether of food, drink, or of whatever nature they may be. Be moderate in all things. .Fourth, never despair. Be cheerful at all times, Never give way to anger. Never let the trials of one. day pass over to the next. The period from 50o to 75 should not be passed in idleness or abandonment of all work. Here is where a great many men fail. ,They resign all care of interest in worldly affairs, and rest of body and mind begins. They throw up their business and retire to private life, which in too many cases' proves to be a suicidal policy. During the next period-the period from 75 to ioo years, while the powers of life are at their lowest ebb-one cannot be t...

A game in which all lovers of football looked forward to took place on the local ground last Saturday, : vwhen the Queensciiff and Artillery teams niet to try conclusions for the first time this season. The weather .was all that could be desired, a slight breeze blowing from the east, though of little use to either side. A large crowd gathered on the local ground to witness this important 'game, and were favored with first class play. Players on both sides rose to the occasion, Intense ex citement prevailed right through the game. The barracking was strong on both sides, inspiring the players to enter into the game with all vigor. The contest was, perhaps, one of the most strenuous fought here for a long time. For tunately no one was hurt. The first half of the game was evenly contested, only 4 points separating the teams at the interva...
Recipes. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 16 May 1914
Recipes. Cold cream Is often useful for rough ness of the skin. A very good recipe for making it is the following :--Take a quar ter of an ounce of white wax and shred it into a basin, with one ounce of almond oil. Place the basin by the fire until the wax is dissolved; then add very slowly one ounce of rosewater, little by little, and meanwhile beat smartly with a fork, to make the water incorporate, and con tinue beating till it is accomplisbed ; then pour into jars ready for use. Veal Broth is very nourishing, and is generally most acceptable to invalids. Take two pounds of knuckle of veal, cut the meat up- small, and break the bone in piecee. Place it in a stewpan with half an onion, half a head of celery, three long pepper and a tiny piece of lemon peel Pour over all three pints of cold water. Set the stewpan on the fire and let it simmer, skimming it carefully all the time. . After cooking five or six hours strain into a pan, and leave it till cold. Remove the fat, and when re...
