SPORTING INTELLIGENCE. CYCLE AND MOTOR NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 6 January 1914

4ý'ý'T~it:"irGI2(ý L'4'PI3Irmw]BB.E - CYCEWOAND0Mth 1 NOTE.' E..e atkon, th w ell lifon N.S.W. long distandce road rider. andiaolder oi the Sydneyr.elbourne, road record, oi 49. hours, is a great believer in: the three.speed gear. Pearson considers ti the: greatest. cycling invention since the advent of the Dunlop pneumatic tyre in 1888. In. his great'ride from Sydney to Melbourne, Pearson rode every hill, and everyone who has travelled the overland route knows what that means, What surprises this great road- rider, is that the . variable speed has not caught on in this country to the extent it should. Pearson thinks that th'e trouble is that most riders .who have tried them have.not learnt how to use them properly and. to. the best advaniage. There is too much tendency to switch into the lowest gear as soon as an up grade is seen, and then pedal oneself right out, trying to. main= tain the same pace as has been obtained with the normal gear, or too liberally using the highest gear ...

RAINFALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 6 January 1914

When soine. nine yearn ago, Mr. Clement Wragge, the eminent meteor. ologist, predicted, in the -Town Hall, Ararat, that 1912 and,1913 would be years of 'under average' rainfall,!' there were many who were inclined to ridicule the .attempt to forecast. me. terologieal: eOnditions from: so distant a tine: So far; however, as this portion of the State is concerned, his prediction has been verified, for 1912 gave a fall of 21.70 inches,- and last year closed for 21.28 inches, as com pared with 24.05 inches, the mean regis tration for the past ten years. For tunately, the difference in quantity is not of much moment, but it must be remembered that it is a very rare oc casion that the fall at Ararat has been below twenty inches. In the great drought of 1888, only 15.14 inches were recorded-figures which were closely approached in 1902, when the year gave 15.95 inches. Since then; iri 1895, the fall was 19.82 inches; ind the follow ing year 18.96, whilst the maximum fall was in 1894, when ...

The Ararat Advertiser. TUESDAY, JANUARY 6, 1914. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 6 January 1914

TUESDAY, JANUARY 6, 1914. At the opening of the New Year it i exceedingly inspiriting and- encour *ging to be able to look forward with ihope and confidence to the future. ilope springs eternal in the human 'breast, and it is particularly oppor tune that with the death of the old year, with its disappointments and fail ures, that any feeling of despondency which may have beeni generated should be buried, and that, with elation, de termination and a confident self-reli ance we should face the future before us. It cannot be gainsaid that the out. look at Ararat on the dawn of 1914 is rich with the promise of abundant pro sperity.:- Indeed, it is not regarding matters with a too fervid optimism to express an opinion that 'at no period since the. first great rush.in 1856-7 have the prospects .of the place presented a more cheery appearance than at the present moniet.

A CENTURY OLD SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 6 January 1914

A CENTURY OLD SCHEME. Some, but I feel inot many of 'my readers, may have met with the statis tical account of the Colony `'of" New South Wales, published'" in 1817 by Wentworth, the poet; and, as the title page tells us, "A Native of the Colony.' The author, whose statesmanlike genius rose in a most surprising fashion above its ttrrible environment ;propounds in his pages many suggestions, most of which have long been mere common places with us. There is one, however, that is worth recalling at the present time when our Commonwealth legisla ture is struggling with- the problem of founding a Bureau of Agrieultuire. In his somewhat stilted' English and gran diose periods he Iifts forward a ?sugges tion that the government of the colony, wlhih then consisted- of onrie mapMae quarie, should be made.. representative of tlhe people, and, among, dinym.other things that to ensure proper attention to and protection for production there should be established -anu experimental farm away .rdom...

A NOBLE LITTLE BOUY During the persecution of the Hu genots in France there was one house hold. where the parents often talked to their- children of the glory of hold iag fast to their faith and enduring persecution nobly. " One day a troop of soldiers came to the village to arrest all the Hegenota. The father and mother determined to escape. They loaded their one little donkey with vegetables, bhiding their little.son among the cabbages, and charging him to keep silent, no mat teo what happened.

DESTROYED BY THEIR AUTHORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 6 January 1914

gESTROYED BY THEIR AUTHO'RS. Mr. Kipling wants to destroy one of his poems; and also the author of it. He was sitting in his garden one day., when a street organ struck up "The Absent-Minded Beggar," which he wrote about the time of the Boer war. Mr. Kipling was silent for a minute; then he turned to someone near. "If It were not suicide," he remark, ed viciously. "I would kill the man who wrote that." Sir Arthur Sullivan liked his own setting of the song no better. A lady persuaded him to play it, and when he bad finished he swung round and asked abruptly, "Well, what do you think of it?" She thought very little of it, but she hesitated to tell him so. Instead, she ventured to remark that the words were rather vulgar. "So is the music," was the compo ser's comment Many famous people have done their best to destroy the works of their youth. The learned Bishop Thirlwell was one of these, and it Is little won der that in his later years the Bishol. did his utmost to get hold of copier...
