For the Ladies. SKIPPING FOR HEALTH AND BEAUTY. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 30 January 1899
For the Liulies. SKIPPING FOR HEALTH AND BEAUTY. An old-fashioned, graceful, yet much neglected form of amusement for children is the use of the skipping rope. It ia one of the healtliiest exercises ever invented, a.nd it probnbly dates from pre-historic times. Bo.yB, unless they are very little, consider it exclusively 11 ' girlish pastime, but the exercise is just as good ,for them as for their sisters. Skipping backwards instead of forward' should always be encouraged, as it throws open tie chest, and (lt)\ clop? the muscles of r the arms and shoulders. The girl who , skips much and well is sure to he [lithe, supple, and light in her ino\cuients,i\v bile tho exercise is good in every rwny for/her, bodily health. It is, however, ' hardly' an amusement~for very hot .weather, but rather for 'the cold, fine, bracing days of , spring andftutuum, or, if thero'- be .plenty of room to play indoors, for, wet or snowy wintry days when there is no getting i-out.

ELECTIVE V. NOMINEE MARINE BOARDS. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 30 January 1899
-/ELECTIVE V. ^NOMINEE . ;\''* SMAfilKE BOARDS. The suggestion made byMrB.D. Stew art, at the last meeting of the Devonport Chamber of Commerce, to the effect that the Mersey Marine Board should be an elective instead of a nominee body, is one that will be endorsed by «' .large majority of the community. The nominee system is altogether wrong, and cannot- be too strongly denounced. It may lead to serious abuses and injustice on the part of those having the power to make the appointments and the members of the various nominee bodies who are ap pointed to conduct public business, This risk should be removed by our legis lators at the earliest opportunity. Iu speaking in support of his proposal as to the advisableness of altering the present system of constituting tho Mer sey Marine Board, . Mr Stewart em phasised the universal axiom — 'no taxation without representation ' — in its special application ' to the export wharfage rates recently im posed by the Marine Board, . It is quite p...
THE North Western Advocate Published every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday Morning. FAIR AND IMPARTIAL. MONDAY, JANUARY 30, 1899. FEDERATION. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 30 January 1899
, THE PullUliri rrery Monday. VTeAruulay, and Friday Morning. I t FAIB AND IMPARTIAL. MONDAY, JAXUAIIT 30, 1S99. FEDERATION. The 'po'&ition. which Sir Henry Wrixon, one of-the best constitutional authorities in Victoria,' has taken up in regard to the amendment of the Commonwealth Bill is undoubtedly a strong one from a logical standpoint. The hon. gentleman contends thai; the Parliaments cannot possibly amend a Bill which has been ratified by the people at the ballot, and that the Premiers, .who hold office at the -pleasure -of 'the' Parliaments, dare not alter a word or a line in it. The' contention is sound, and in addition it -must be obvious that if the New South Wales Parliament is permitted to make amendments in the Bill, the same privi lege must be conceded to the legislatures of the other colonies, so that we should enter upon a running cross-fire of amendments and amendments upon amendments, and 'the prospect of securing finality would be remote indeed: -The Bill, ...
