COLONIAL DEVELOPMENT [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 2 April 1914

COLONIAL DEVELOPMENT Professor ftt. Bonn, of Munich Uni versity, read an interesting paper to tile Royal Colonial institute last liiglit on "German Colonial Policy." Viscount Milner presided (says "The Daily Tele graph" of January 14), and in the coursc of a short speech compared tlio relative positions of Germany and Eng land 111 relation to Colonial policy, and pointed out liow their common interests might be advanced. Professor Bonn said that Germany ruled a Colonial Empire five times as big as the Fatherland, with about 14 million natives. She ruled them not always very wisely and not yet very effectively everywhere; but she ruled tliem without very great efforts. She liad, of course, wasted money occasion ally. She had'had an extremoly costly war in South-West Africa on which about £20,000,000 was spent.

WHITEHALL HOAX [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 2 April 1914

WHITEHALL HOAX Between the hours of noon and threa on January 7, Whitehall and the neigh boring streets witnessed a rush for candles such as not been known within the memory of mortal man. Bonks, shops, clubs, institutions great and small, cried, in the words of the dying Goethe, for "Light, more light." And J all in vain. The cause of this unprecedented de- . mand (says" " The Daily Mail") was a short, thick-set, clean-shaven man-a "respectable-looking man although wearing a brown overcoat," as one wit ness described him. Such was his ex terior, but beneath the surface lurked the spirit of Theodore Hook, England's greatest practical joker. From noon till three this man made a careful pilgrimage down Whitehall and round about. . Gravely and blandly, lie explained at all his houses of call that he represented the electric light ing company, and that the company re gretted to inform them that between the hours of three and six the electric light supply would'unfortunately not be avail...

WORKER FOR LABOR | ADVOCATE OF AUBITiUATION It is unusual to find a man within a little of lii.s eightieth birthday whose life has been <mo of labor intent upon new plans by which lie may ho bur dened with duties to take the place of larger affairs that lie is now hardly strong enough to <airv (says "The Dally News and Loader" of January 14). That was the task a "Dally News" visitor found Mr Robert Applogarth, the veteran reformer, trade unionist, ;ind educationist engaged upon yesterday. "Rob" Applogarth will never retire from the trade union movement. Dur ing the last dock strike this little, frail man was looking after the wounded. He was asked by a famous leader to speak on Tower HIM on one occasion, and went there to do so. But the memory of the stricken buck streets overwhelmed him, and he could not speak. Such is his sympathy. IN TUB FOREFRONT Robert Applegarth is one of the greatest figures in the history of trade unionism and of the working class movem...

The interviewer - a "Daily News" representative - flew signals of distress and a paraphrase was conceded. "What I mean," explained the speaker, Mr J. M.

MONEY IN STAMPS FRK'LO FOR BARIVS COLLECTION J The greatest deal in Hie history of stamp collecting came to light ou Sat urday. -when it was announced that the famous collection made by the late Ear! of Crawford had been purchased by Messrs F.dwin Uealey and Company, on behalf of Mr R. 13. Sparrow, of Talybon t-on-lTsk, Brecknock. The purchase plice, it is stated, is close on .CL'O.UOO, a record figure for a single collection.

DRURY LANE ORANGE WOMEN RIGHT RECOGNISED Mr M'Kenna, the Home Secretary, made himself the most popular man in Covent Garden on Tuesday by his | prompt action in recognising the tradi-1 tlonal right of the orfinge, women of I Drury Lane to ply their trade outside - the Theatr.e Royal (sayB "Lloyd's i Weekly," January IS.) 1 How the Merry Monarch chose a fav-1 orite from the ranks of the Drury Lane 1 orange girls and Nell Gwynne became J the mother of a duke, has passed into history, but it is not so well recognised that ever since the seventeenth century generation after generation of orange girls have been allowed to stand out side the theatre, and thus an equitable right has grown up. When it became known that the police had dislodged the orange-women the Costermongers' Union took the mat ter up, and as a result Mr Kingsley Wood. L.C.C., introduced to the Home Secretary at the Home 'Office on Tues day a deputation including a dozen of the orange sellers, baskets and all. One of the...

CORRESPONDENCE. THE TOTAL IS ATOR. TO THE EDI "OR. SIR,-The legalisaron of the | totalisator is such a burning ques-1 tion just now that the following' will interest many of your readers, j When Mr Mackey was asked atj last election as to his position he said he would await the fiinline;j of the New South Wales Com-' mission, and he would inn favor! the totalisator unless it decreased : gambling elsewhere. That, is; statesmanlike, i'-r nil thinkers know the evil of gambling, and patriots dare not doi anything to increase it. Now,I understand that the Commission found that the totalisator did increase gambling. The "Lyttlecon Times" (N.Z.) states :-'* We believe that if the totalisator, which has created nine-tenths of tho gamblers in the country, were abolished, the evil would be at once enormously reduced, and that within a de cade it would be no greater menace to the community than it appeared to be before the machine was introduced." The totalisa tor investments throughout the - ...

FOOD REQUIRED BY HENS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 2 April 1914

FOOD REQUIRED BY HENS. One of the findings of science on the subject of poultry-keeping is that a hen raqulres one-fiftieth of her weight in food every day to maintain her bodily vigor. So, if a hen weighs 611). 4oz. thu daily allowance of food ought to be 2oz. But that allows noth ing (for the manufacture of the egg. A hen in full lay is aa«imed to lay lOoz. in a vek. As 60 <per cent, of an egg is water, that means that at least 4oz. more food must be allowed. A safe rule is to allow laying hens about 3oz. of food per day. In con fined runs, much more care has to ibe taken to give a -well-balanced ration than when the fowls run free. In the latter case the birds seldom become too fat, and they keep themselves in health iby eating a variety of green food, -which acta as a corrective to all sorts of complaints to which other fo-wls aTe subject.

CHEERFUL EVER It's good we can say, with a sigh and a smile: "Times will he belter after awhile! The light will stream through the clouds o'erhead, And flowers will bloom where thti thorns were red!" What of the sigh, if we say. with a smile: "Time:; will be belter after awhile?" It's a long, long way to the light of day: But winter gives ever a promise of May, And ever we dream, in the darkest night: "The joy will come with the morning light!" Even in our sorrow we say with a sn\lle: "Times will ibe better after awhile!" "Times will bo better!" In joy and woe Is it not sweeter to sing them so? Sweeter to dream, when the dark's o'er the blue, The eyes of the angels are looking at you? Away with the sigh, then, and sweet ibe the smile, "Times will be 'better after awhile!"

Here lie met another friend, a master mariner. After an informal introduction his two compan ions' talked of things in which he took no interest, and he joined in another conversation. Half-ati-hour had elapsed when they informed him-profusely grateful for the introduction-that he had intro duced two brothers! They had been separated, not 'by (iiiarrel, but by the estranging years. The mariner, as a weakly boy whose life was despaired of, had ben sent to a relative who lived mean counties away, by the sea. He had never re visited the scenes of his youth, or been seen by his parents and brothers. Forty years had passed since the brothers had met.
