-oax5cuflAneftrvT AND ITS VOLCANO Sakurashlma. the small island In tle South of Japan which has been devas tated by a volcanic outburst, is situated in tile Gulf of Kago shlma, opposite tile city of ,the same nlame, says the editor of "The Japan Chronicle" In an interesting article in "The Manchester Guardian." The island is 24 miles in circumference, and the crater of the volcano at the summit Is 3500ft. above sea-level. Ac-I cor.ing .u Japanese tradition, the Island was produced by an upheaval of the earth's crust In the year 796.

SCRAPS. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 19 March 1914
SCRAPS. It was a Sharp practice to recom mendcnl at the Berwick Council imee:ilg on Saturday week, that the Autm ot.iie Club be asked to place firger posts on the intersection of the Civde, Gippsland, and IIarkaway roadi, in the picturesque town of Be: wick right in front of the Border Hotel, too! A coutcillor said that motorists (nat knowing the road) had to wake up Triatdo (the genial propriato: of the "Geordic" iHoel) at any ungedly hour of fromn anythiing after closin, time until daylight, to irnquite wLich toad was "whitclh.' Our experience wi;lh motor car parties is that twey are all tigilt until they strike "ctoas roads," and tthe:t they are "all wrong," until they get a dtink. And I may add that as "Motor hIcgs," who treat horse traflia with the utmnost can tempt, they treat the landlord of .hIo hotel in nriot mnuch more courteous termis and extract all they can get for their "beans."

SIR ARTHUR SULLIVAN'S ORDEAL [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 19 March 1914
SIR Ar~TI[UIt SULLIVAN'S ORDEAL The death of Mr Francois Cellier. the Savoy conductor (says "The Westmin ster Gazette") recalls a dramatic epi sode associated with the production of "Iolanthe" in 1882. That opera was the first of the Gilbert and Sullivan series produced at the Savoy, and Sir Arthur Sulllvan had arranged with .Mr.Celller personally to conduct the lirst perform ance. On the morning of the day fixed for the production Sir Arthur was a comparatively rich manl, so successful had been the four operas which had preceded "Iolanthe"; but Just as he was about to lepve honme for the Savoy news reached him of the bankruptcy of the firm entrusted with his investments, and with that bankruptcy the whole of his savings disappeared. But in spite of this heavy blowtv he went to the theatre and conducted "Iolanthe" be fore a crowded audience, which little knewv that the famous composer was then as poor as the lowliest scene shifter behind the-scenes.

Ol becoming Dean of the Arches In 1903 Sir Lewis Dlbdin did what he could to explore the room in which the documents were kept; but it was not until the sulimmer of last year, when he was helped by the Rev.

The Great Montamor Case. CHAPTER XVIII. THE GAUNTLET IS CAST. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 19 March 1914
The Great Montamor Case. By ALICE M. DIEHL, Authoreass of "The Knave of Hearts," CHAPTER XVIII. THiE GAUNTLET IS CAST. It was a sultry sunmer day; the sun poured down on the pavements with merciless power. The grass in the parks was visibly browning. The, busy thoroughfares were crowded in the shade--emopty but for a few pedestrians where the sunshine blis tered and frizzled. GOwendolen Htalldare sat at her writing-table in her shady drawing room, shady because of wetted tat ties and outside blinds. Lilies and white sweet peans, with ferns, were in the bowls and vases. A little fountain fed with rose-water played in the shaded balcony-a new idea of hers. Its trickling suggested cool ness, just as in the dining-roonm be low the big lumps of ice among ferns not only suggested cold, but temn pered the heat. .That day everything connected with Lord Montamor seemed to her clear as the purest crystal. She was "- misoerable. .\An active tight was at SK work within her between the part of :...

MEN AND DYNAMITE SOUTH AFRICAN LABOR TROUBLES [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 19 March 1914
MEN AND DYNAMITE SOUTH AFRICAN LABOR TROUBLES (By Stephen Black, In "The Dally Mail.") The present trouble on the Rand, from where is drawn practically the whole of the world's regular gold supply, originated largely In the tragic deeds of last July 4 and 5. It may vaguely lhave come from still farthler back, but shatpo and definition emerged six months ago. South Africa, the graveyard of states men's reputations, has problems which no other country on earth possesses; and the wisest men have failed time and again to cope with themn. Certainly thile Botha Government prior to last July understood little of the liand's real soul; tile soul of a wild, reck less race of metn jumbled together tlnong scholars, mining mnlathcmatl clans, younger sons, and other remit tance men. Tile same spirits that re belled against the Kruger Governmtent and the children of these menr are on the Ranld to-day; and thile fatality of their affairs is that they are governed as Kruger governed them-from a tow...

DARING OPERATION KNIFE FOR TUBERCULOSIS [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 19 March 1914
DARINiG OPERATION KNIFE FOR TUBERCULOSIS Tremendous strides have been made of late years in the treatment of tuber culosis (says "Lloyd's WTcekly News" of January 18), and one of the greatest appears to have been due to the sur geons at Guy's IRospital, who, greatly daring. are declared to hav'e made a remarkable advance in the treatment of certain forms of disease. Recent researches have led doctors to suppose that many conditions of chlronic ill-health, such as nervous deb!lity, rheumatism, and other disorders, are due to poisoning set up by unhealthy conditions of the large intestine, and it has even been suggested that the lowering of vitality resulting from such poisoning is favorable to the develop mnent of cancer and tuberculosis. It was felt that if the large intestine could be safely removed the result would be a tendency to healthy longe vity in the individual; but surgeons were deterred from the obvious opera tion by a knowledge of other functions performed by this part o...
STRAIN ON THE NAVY POSITION DISCUSSED. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 19 March 1914
STRAIN ON THIE NAVY POSITION DISCCUSSED. (By Rear-Admiral A. T. Mahan, in "The Dally Mall.") The naval position of Great Britain is a composite of two distinct factors. These are the general international situation, in so far as Great Britain may be therein involved by her inter eats or her dangers, and the amount 'of naval force disposable to secure those interests and to meet those dan gers. These two things represent tilhe defensive and offensive elements of a military situation. At the present moment tile mere security of the British Islands Is con. ceived to be so far Imperilled that it has prompted a radical change In the distribution of the British Navy, the leading feature of which is the con centration around the islands them selves of a very large majority of the battleship force. Subordinate to this, but directly related to it, has been the wtthdrawal-the drawing back-of the Mediterranean Fleet from Malta to Gibraltar as Its definite headquarters. Students of military his...
