The Heyfield Herald. PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY MORNING THE CLAIMS OF THE WORKER [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 22 January 1914
PUBLISHED EVEKY THURSDAY MORNING THE CLAIMS OF THE WORKER The gratifying success of Mr Watt >-nd his colleagues, the ending of little differences in the Liberal party are, it is to be honed, the prelude to earnest work in Parliament. One of the urgent measures requiring immediate attention is the Workers' Compensation Bill. To some extent it has alwayB been'recognised that a man who is dis abled whilst about his work iB entitl d to compensation. Even when the law was" wholly unsatisfactory, many wealthy employers and many wealthy companies treated those who were maimed whilst about their work with generosity. But there are some mean and many poor employers. The mean one will not pay if by any legal quibble he can escape his liability ; the poor one cannot pay, for he is fighting hard for a bare livelihood. The measure submitted by the Watt Minis try last session provides for all these cases. It makes the insuranca of em ployes compulsory. But when the Bill waB laid on the table o...
PROSPECT. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 22 January 1914
PROSPECT. (By a Visitor). Said a farmer whoTamped on the reserve : "An ideal place for-a holiday is thiB Prospect Reserve. Thanks to the working bees who cleared the bush track, and the Government grant that formed portion of it, there is a com paratively good road now all the way from Sale A clean camping ground to pitch our tents on, and a well grassed area of over 200 acres, securely fenced, to let our horses run on. An abundant supply of fresh water, and concerts and dancing and euchre tournamentB in the hall at night, and the ocean to dip in, and fish in, during the day. What more do we want than that 1 There is also a store where we can obtain supplies, and a summer school to be opened at the end of the month to which we can send our chil dren. It is the cheapest seaside resort in the State." That Prospect is becoming a great summer resort for people living fifty miles away from it is proved by the large number of houses that are being erected there and the amount of vehicular...
GLENMAGGIE. CONCERT AND BALL. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 22 January 1914
GLENMAGfilE. CONCERT AND BALL. (From our own Correspondent.) The people of Glenmaggie and sur rounding district were treated to a first-class concert on Friday evening last. The average country concert does not impress the music-loving pub lie, but to say that this entertainment was far superior to anything of the kind that has been held locally in recent years would be putting it mildly. The committee of the Glen ^tnaggie Mechanics' is to be commended on putting1 before the public such an array of talent. Pride of place must, of course, be given to Miss Florence Ikwaz, who was specially engaged for the event. This talented young lady, who was in the lead in the Ballarat Competitions, is a host in herself, and for her rendering of the different items was loudly encored. In fact, it was' generally agreed that there was. not^one of the contributions to the evening's harmony that was not above the average. The proceedings opened with a song entitled, 'Out on the Deep,' by Mr Hoare, who...

JAPANESE LAW COURTS. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 29 January 1914
JAPANESE LAW COURT?. -r As Japan has borrowed its naval training from Britain and its mili tary'system *Jrom Germany, so it has introduced its judicial arrangements' from France. No juries are employed and long eifoss-questioning of pris-, oners F«rid defendants by / the /bench are familiar features of the proceed ings in court. . The bar .is; exclusively Japanese, and its members enjoy much consideration and make large incomes. They represent clients, ad dress the Court, and suggest tcvthe judges questions to put to the wit nesses, but they do no examining. On the other hand, admissions which they make are * held to have been made by: their clients. *i?HE COURT. . consists always' of severr.I jud.ycs sit ting as a bench. There is also in each court a public prosecutor who represents the Crown in criminal cases and watches the public interest in civil ones.. The accused is 'always.' expected to confess, and so much weight is attached 'to his doing so that, up to thirty years ago, to...

A GIGANTIC TELESGOP The form that Americais weaJlUi sas selected 'on more than one oe :asion, when anxious to advance as :ronomical science, has been, says "Engineering," to provide its pro fessors with huge telescopes.

A VISIT TO CHELSEA. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 29 January 1914
A .VISIT TO CHELSEA. (BY BILL NYE.) During the holidays the writer had an opportunity of visiting this newest and meat charming of bayside resorts famous within recent memory for one of the most destructive fi;rs in the history of the State, For a tpile along the shore the fire made an almost clean sweep, and the scene presented was one of almost unrelieved deso lation. Chimneys, corrugated iron, and bedsteads were all that remained of hundreds of dwellings that aforetime gave sanctuary to a large population of city dwellars and week-enders, while a number of business places shared in the general ruin These ^ tenements were built amongst the ti-tree which fringes the bay-a charmingly rustic idea, but a situation involving immi nent danger, for the trees, a distinct variety from the swamp ti-tree, burn like tinder on a hot day with a strong wind. Under the intense heat of the leaping flames the green leaves also be came highly inflammable, and fed the insatiable appetite of the fire ...

WHAT TO LEARN". Learn to laugh. A good laugh is better than medicine Learn to tell a good story, A well told story is as welcome as a sunbeam in a sickroom. Learn to keep your troubles to your self.

Learn to hide your aches and pains under a pleasant smile. Few care whether you have the earache, head ache or rheumatism. Learn to attend strictly to your own business. A very important point. Lparn to greet your friends with a smile. They carry too many frowns in their own hearts to be bothered witU any of yours. For Children's Hacking Cough at night, Woods' Great Peppermint Cure-i/6.

The Perfect Remedy [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 29 January 1914
The Perfect &lt;r Remedy For all complaints arising from a disordered stomach, Liver and Kid neys, Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills are without equal, and they are the Perfect Remedy in All Female Ail ments. They arc not advertised as a great "Cure All," but as a Safe, Sure and Reliable Remedy for the Little Ills of Life, for which they are unex celled. People who eat and drink too much, or get their system upset from any -other cause, need a medicine of this kind to keep the digestive track i;i proper working order. Many serious illnesses are avoided by keeping such a simple remedy at hand, and once or twice a^week taking a dose sufficient to cleanse and tone the system. This is the secret of good health in Man, Woman, and Child, and anyone failing to recognise this simple fact runs a serious risk of contracting any of the dreaded complaints so common.

THE STATE AND THE FARMER. HANDLING OF WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 29 January 1914
THE STATE AND THE FARMER. HANDLING OF WHEAT. Most people realise in a general way that to at least three States, Victoria, N.S.W , and South Australia, wheat growing ia a vitally important matter. Comparatively few, however, have gone nt all carefully into the figures, or know how much the cost of marketing affects, and must affect, the area under cultivation. According to the report of the Royal Commission which con sidered the question,-the price of wheat has duriug the last ten years varied from 2/9 to 4/2 per bushel ? when the latter price is paid the farmer can afford to pay for bags and for out-of date methods of handling. The report of fcbe Royal Commission says that the cost of bags is from 61 to 7d, that the' cost of handling them is a big item, and that the usual method of weighing them is quite unsatisfactory. It adds, what all who are interested in the sub ject know, that the provision for the storage of wheat at country stations is most unsatisfactory. Here and there ar...

And by the information which exper ience has gained, A number of mysterious things are readily explained. Why did the flow'refc blush unseen amid the desert air 1 Why have some sages lived unknown in aitics chill and bare? Why is reward withheld from men both talented and wise? The answer ia as plain as day-they didn't advertise. To merely take the light from 'neath the bushei wiil not do" You've got to keep it blazing where the passing throng may view, No matter what your trade may be, this fact you can't disguise : You'll drop out of the running if you do not advertise.
