MELBOURNE NEWS. SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 5 January 1914
MELBOURNE NEWS. SATURDAY. John Henry Sparks, alias Edward O'Neill, alias James A. Griffiths, was charged at the City Court on Saturday, before Mr Cohen, P.M., with having escaped from custody. Detective Bennett stated that, in conjunction with Detectives Haw kins and Middleton, he had made a close observation of the accused, and had concluded that he was not the prisoner, John Henry Sparks, who some years ago escaped from Pentridge. He therefore asked that the accused should be discharged. Mr Barnett, who appeared for the accused, asked that some compensa tion might be allowed him for the loss of time and trouble he had been put in connection with a case of mistaken identity. Accused's real name was James A. Griffiths. For what reason the accused went under the second name, Edward O'Neill, had nothing to do with the present charge. He, Mr Barnett, also ap plied for professional costs for the case, for the trouble he had person ally taken in the case. The bench refused to grant profe...

THE ENGLISH GIRL. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 5 January 1914
THE ENGLISH GIRL. Twenty years or so ago, Gilbert wrote of the English girl (with how much irony it is impossible to tell): A wonderful joy our eyes to bless Is her magnificent comeliness, Is our English girl, eleven-stone-two And five-foot-ten in her dancing shoe, followed by three long verses of un restrained eulogy. Doctors attending the recent International Congress on Medicine in London agreed with the -great humorist. "The London woman has improved enormously since the last congress took place here thirty years ago," said an English physician. "Look at that girl across the road. Mark how she walks-the firm, swingag stride. Why, the Englishwoman of to day is the healthiest and finest on ea?'?th." A German doctor said: "The Englishwoman has grace without lan guour and strength without harshness. It must be due to athletics. The Ger man girl is equally healthy but less active." A French doctor awarded the superiority in grace to his country women, who had made an art of every mov...

WHO IS A DAIRYMAN? [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 5 January 1914
WHO IS A DAIEYMAN' We read and hear a whole lot those days about dairymen and dairying. Those are old terms in the English lon guage, but their- application is com paratively recent. Twenty-five years or more ago our butter, our milk, and other dairy products came from farm ers, and the part that the cows played -on a mixed farming basi was s cmpar atively insignificant. There were few dairymen in the sense that there are to-day. But are all of those who spe cialise in cow farming dairymen in the proper sense? What makes a dairy man-merely the fact he has cows? If so, then the man who owns a shop and tools of the trade is a carpenter. A brush and paint do not make an ar tist. It is in the skilful use of these things that makes the profession. And in the same sense cows do not make dairying. A dairyman is one who, first of all, knows land, what is in the land, and how to get the most out of it, and-most important of all-to get this out without impairing its fu ture usefulness. Land-s...
WHAT DID HE MEAN. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 5 January 1914
WHAT DID HE MEAN. "Two men got into a fight in fron t of the bank to-day," said a city man -t the family tea table. "and I toil y'ou it looked pretty nasty for one ot them The bigger one seied a huge stick and brandished it. I felt that he was going to knock the other's brains out. and I jumped in between them." The family had li.-tned with rapt attention, and as the head paused in his narrative the young heir. whose respect, for his father's bravry is im measurable, proudly remark.,d, "He couldn't knock any brains out of you, could he. father ?"
PUBLICATION'S RECEIVED. "THE INLANDER." The critics are full of pride, Challenging each to each. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 5 January 1914
PUBLICATION'S RECEIVED. "THE INLA.NDER." The critics are full of pride, Challenging each to each. -Kipling. And the critics-at least so far as those of Australia are concerned with their pride and their self-con tent, know but little-a puny pathetic little-of the Great Out back that flaunts its uninviting-look blankness on the map. True, an occasional peripatetic poet or a tale teller with the wander lust in his blood, and possessing more enter prise than his fellows, has ventured out into the Great Unknown, com muned with the Spirit of the Silent spaces, and returned laden with the stuff that real songs and stories are made of. But apart from him the Outer Rim knows next to nothing of the Interior. However, this pre vailing ignorance has no longer any valid excuse for existence. For " The Inlander," a quarterly magazine com pý.ied and edited by the Rev. John Flynn, comes along to make us dis cover, in spite of ourselves, the greater part, geographically at least, of the land we liv...

AMERICA'S MEAT SUPPLY. PROSPECT OF A FAMINE. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 5 January 1914
AMERICA'S MEAT SUPPLY. .-------- 4 PROSPECT OF A FAMINE. "Our Vanishing Meat Supply" is the heading under which a leading San Francisco paper discusses the prospect of a meat famine in the United States. That such a prospect actually exists is admitted and deplored by the great meat slaughterers and packers of the Middle West. It is a riatter of seri ous portent to the United States; but other stock-raising countries of the world stand to benefit immensely, es pecially in view of the tariff reduction that went into effect quite recently. If the fears of the wholesale meat dealers of America are is well-found ed, there is no limit to the quantity of frozen mutton and beef from Aus tralia and New Zealand that the Unit ed State can absorb. For seven or eight years past the price of meat has been high with a constant tendency to increase rather than depreciate. In the ensuing similar period there will be a further advance, according to every sign,. The possibility of a meat famine has b...
WRITERS AND WRITINGS. LITERARY NOTES AND VERSES. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 5 January 1914
WRITERS AND WRITINGS. LITERARY NOTES AND VERSES. "BY THE WAY." As an artist may find more to in terest him in the sketch-book of a fellow than in many of his finished pictures, so a writer takes special pleasure in another's notes and jottings-hints for poems or books to be carried out some day, and " chips from the workshop" that really saw the carrying out of others. Such collections are sure to have much of spontaneity -that great quality which is so often crushed out of the finished thing. And it really does not matter in the end whether the hints are extended into volumes, as long as we can have the hints. To a thinking mind sentences are as good as whole books, though such a mind has usually needed the training of books first. Read these fragments of verse from Wilhliam Allingham ' A wizard oak, With branches fiercely scribbled on the sky. One could muse for long on that picture. Other lines might help its effect, or they might blur it by giving the reader too much to think ab...
CITIZENS' BAND. SOCIAL EVENING. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 5 January 1914
CITIZENS' BAND. SOCIAL EVENING. In response to the invitation of the Mayor and president of the Citizens' Band (Cr. H. E. Williams) bandsmen assembled in force at the Mavor's room on Friday evening. The function was chiefly for the pur pose of presenting medals won by bandsmen, but it was also made the _ccasion for the airing of congratu lations on the band's performance in the New Year's Day contest. The Mayor said it gave him great pleasure to congratulate the band on their achievement. The St. Kilda band, which won the selection, had a much bigger field to choose from than was the case in a town like Maryborough. But the Citizens' band had, in the opinion of com petent critics, played very well, and he hoped that they would con tinue to pull together and go on to bigger things. After the loyal toast had been honored, Cr. Green submitted that of "The band," coupled with the names of the bandmaster. Mr R. Quinn, and drum-major, Mr A. Williams. The proposer of the toast endorsed the...
AMUSEMENTS. THE DANDIES. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 5 January 1914
AMUSEMENTS. THE DANDIES. The announcement that Mr Ed ward Branscombe's versatile enter tainers, the Dandies, are to appear at the Town Hall to-night has set local residents on a qui vive of expecta tion. The bright, breezy class of entertainment supplied by these clever artists at St. Kilda is well known, and the word "Dandies" has become a household word in Vic torian homes. The happy knack of presenting every changing reper toires of bright, breezy songs which one so often hears at the Dandies entertainment is solely due to the agents of Mr Branscombe in England and America, who are continually sending out fresh supplies direct from the theatres abroad. Many of the numbers are specially written for the Dandies, and one can always rely on something new and original at these bright entertainments. The droll comedians, Win. Watts, Gor don Lennox, and Harry de Robeck have a wonderful selection of sketches and burlesques, of which they make a specialty, and they can be assured of a mos...
