THE NEXT TASK [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 February 1914

THE NEXT TASKI "To explore the most secret depths of the unconscious, to labor in what I have called the subsoil of conscious ness. that will be the principal task of psychology in the century which is opening. I do not doubt that won derful discoveries await it there, as important perhaps as have been in the preceding centuries the discoveries of the physical and natural sciences. That at least is the promise which I make for it," says Professor Dergson in the "Independent."

BRITISH PEARLS [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 February 1914

BIIITISII PEARLS In early times Britain played its part in the production of pearls. and Taci tus refers to British pearls. but calls them dull-colored and dirty brown. Origen, on the contrary, declared that the pearls that came from Britain held the second rank of value. It was not, however, until about the twelfth cen tury that pearls were used in England, when they became conspicuous in Church ornamentation. Henry VIII. obtained some costly pearls from the monasteries which he plundered.

LIVINGS FOR THEIR SPOUSES [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 February 1914

LIVINGS FOR THEIIR SPOUSES The part played by the wives of the clergy in the benetices traffic is very remarkable-no class, indeed, rigures more conspicuously (says "The Scot tish Chronicle.") To say that some of these ladies are the active partners of their husbands is rather to under state the case. They buy benefices, present their spouses thereto, and then, after the necessary 12 months have elapsed, dispose of the advowsons for welcome cash with an easy graco which is all their own.

ACCOMPLISHED COCKATOO [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 February 1914

ACCOMPLISHED -COCIlATOO M-ss Nesta Lapham, 11. writes to the "Express" from Thorngrove Lodge, Gillingham, Dorset--" We own a very clever cockatoo called Jacko. Besides chopping wood, drawing nails, nipping wire, etc.. he will sing a song with my father, after which he laughs, like a human being. He will make a stump speech, dance to any tune played or whistled, and 're verses' on being told. Perhaps he thinks it's the tango. He can cough very well, and coughs a great deal, and is great chums with our cat, who sits in his cage.

COMMONWEALTH TRADE NOT LANGUISHING, BUT MIGHT BE LARGER. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 February 1914

i1 COMiMONWEALTH TRADE NOT LANGUISHING. BUT MIGHT BE LARGER. The growth of Australia's trade with ;tho world at large and the Unitedl Kingdom in particular has undoubtedly been promoted by thile Australasianll Chamlber of Conunllerlce ill London which, as it happens. held its twelfth annual " general meeting yesterday - (iays "The Financial News" December 1S). Tlhe president of this body is no other than the present High Commis sioner for the Commonwealth (Sir George Reid), while the chairman is Sir John Cockburn, whlo is as much at home in the Motherland as in Australia herself. The report then presented has raised some points of great interest both to Australia's primary producers and to consumers in this country. It isneed less to insist on the importance, from an Imperial point of view, of the trade in Australasian frozen meat. With an ever-growing industrial population and a home meat supply incapable of in definite expansion, it is of the utmost moment to the workers of this c...
