DARING OPERATION KNIFE FOR TUBERCULOSIS [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 20 March 1914
DARINO OPERATION KNIFE FOR TUBERcULOSIS Tremendous strides have been made of late years in the treatment of tuber culosis (says "Lloyd's Weekly News" of January 18), and one of the greatest appears to have been due to the sur geons at Guy's Hospital, who, greatly daring, are declared to have made a remarkable advance in the treatment of certain forms of disease. Recent researches have led doctors to suppose that many conditions of chronic ill-health, such as nervous debility, 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 ment 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 functionls performed by this part of thi...
SARAH BERNHARDT HONORED RECEIVES CROSS OF LEGION [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 20 March 1914
SARAH BERNHARDT HONORED RECEIVES CROSS OF LEGION I was one of many who went to con gratulate Madame Sarah Bernhardt, who has at last received the Cross of the Legion of Honor (says the Paris correspondent of "The Daily Tele graph"). I brought her the con gratulations of "The Daily Telegraph," and of the immense circle of her Brit ish admirers, and she said that among the innumerable niessages she had re ceived she appreciated none more. "So sympathetic you English are, and al ways have been-always so kind to me. I am very much touched. Please, con vey my deepest thanks. All these kind attentions to-day overwhelm me. I am much moved." And the great actress really did seem more moved than Ihave seen her on the stage. It was a family luncheon, party that I interrupted, in the house on the Boulevard Pereire, where Madame Sarah-as all her friends call her has lived for many years. The house is full of mementoes of her long and illustrious career all over the world, and contains also some...
MEN AND DYNAMITE SOUTH AFRICAN LABOR TROUBLES [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 20 March 1914
MEN AND DYNAMITE SOUTH AFRICAN LABOR TROUBLES (By Stephen Black, in "The Daily Mall.") 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 have come from still farther back, but shape 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 them. Certainly the Botha Government prior to last July understood little of the Rand's real soul; the soul of a wild, reck less race of men Jumbled together among scholars, mining mathemati cians, younger sons, and other remit tance men. The same spirits that re belled against the Kruger Government and the children of these, men are on the Rand to-day; and the fatality of their affairs is that they are governed as Kruger governed theml--fromn a townl only thirt...

PUCCINI INSPIRED BY BARGES [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 20 March 1914
PUCCINI INSPIRED BY BARfiES Signor Giacomo Puccini, the famous Italian composer, who has been pay ing a lightning visit to London, went last night to a rehearsal of "The Dtr ling of the Gods." which Sir Herbert Tree is reviving at His Majesty's Thea tre, for the composer is in search of a subject for a new opera. "The chief reason for my presence in London to-day," he said to a "Daily Express" representatlve. "is pressure of private business. But, at the same time, whenever I come to London I am always glad of the opportunity to visit the theatres, for I am a great admirer of the English stage, and so it comes that I have made up my mind to see 'The Darling of the Gods.' in the hope that it might prove to be a suitable subject for an opera. I shall do my best to visit a rehearsal this evening, for I leave England for Italy at an early date. "I have seen 'Mr Wu,' and I liked it very much, both for its originality and the splendid manner in wh~lch it is staged. "I may -tell you," he a...
COURT OF ARCHES LOST RECORDS DISCOVERED [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 20 March 1914
COURT OF ARCHES LOST RECORDS DISCOVERED At a dinner of the Authors' Club on Monday (says "The Times" of Janu ary 16) Sir Lewis Dlbdln, KC.C., Dean of the Arches, gave an extraordin arily interesting account of the ad ventures of the lost or forgotten re cords of the Court of Arches. These records, which were kept in various places after the Fire of London, were removed in 1865 from St. Paul's Cathedral to Lambeth Palace, where they lay buried for nearly 40 years "in a deep stratum of London soot and dust;" and the nature and value of their contents have only just been discovered. On 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 summer of last year, when he was helped by the Rev. Claude Jenkins, librarian of Lambeth, that he was able to go through them. They cover a period of 200 years, from 1660 to 1856, and provide a set of precedents, about 2000 in number, de cided in the princi...
DOOMED ISLAND SAKURASHIMA AND ITS VOLCANO [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 20 March 1914
DOOMED ISLAND .: SAKIURASHIIMA AND ITS VOLCANO Sakurashima, the small island in the South of Japan which has been devas tated by a volcanic outburst, is situated in the Gulf of Kago shima, opposite the city of the same name, says the editor of "The Japan Chronicle" in an interesting article in "The AIanchester Guardian." The island is 24 miles in circumference, and the crater of the volcano at the summit is 3500ft. above sea-level. Ac cording -to Japanese tradition, the Island was produced by an upheaval of the earth's crust in the )'ear 796. However that may be, the volcano was within historic times very active, though for more than a hundred years now it has been quiescent. There is no recorded case, moreover, of a vol canic outburst of Sakurashima equal to the present in the extent and com pleteness of the disaster. The volcano most feared in this region is that of IKirlshima, higher up the bay, which can still be seen smok ing on most days of the year, and is occasionally respon...
SIR ARTHUR SULLIVAN'S ORDEAL [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 20 March 1914
SIR AitBTHiUl? SULLIVAN'S ORDEAL The death of Sir Francois Cellier, the Savoy conductor (says "The Westmln 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 Sullivan had arranged with Mr Cellier personally to conduct the first perform ance. On the morning of the day fixed for the production Sir Arthur was a comparatively rich man, so successful had been the four operas which had preceded "Iolanthe"; but just as he was about to leave home for the Savoy news reached lim 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 blow he went to the theatre and conducted "Iolanthe" be fore a crowded audience, which little knew that the famous composer was then as poor as the lowliest scene shifter behind the scenes.
TERRIER AS TELEPHONE [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 20 March 1914
TERRIER AS TELEPHONE "Floss," a six-year-old Irish terrier, belonging to Mr. E. Woodward, a fruiterer's carman, of MIansfield (Notts), regularly acts as a letter carrier for her master (says "The Daily Mail" of January 12). She accompanies him on all his tourneys, and is often employed in taking written messages to his place of business and bringing back the answer. Her best performance was the double journey in a snowstorm be tween Mansfield and Mr. Woodward's home at Sutton, three miels away. Thb answer arrived in an hour. The dog is also used by a football team to take the half-time and full time scores of their matches from the ground to an inn.
STATE LANDS POLICY. ASSISTANCE TO APPLICANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 23 March 1914
STATE LANDS POLIOY. ASSISTANCE TO APPLICANTS. Mr Lawson (the Minister for Lands) is instituting reforms in his department, which will have it is believed, the effect of relaxing the strangle hold of red tape upon applicants for land. In the. past applicants have had to neglect their business aflirs and waste many valuable hours in order to attend meetings of the Land Board to press their demands. Frequently nine or ten attempts to obtain a suitable block have been unsuccessful, and the vexation of the applicant has been intensified by the necessity of having to pay a fee of 5S on each occasion. Com p'aints have been frequent, but the department remained for a long time indifferent to them. The publication of the damaging report by the sub-committee on closer settlement, which was appointed by the first Watt Ministry, con tained recommendations for the simplification of the lanl system which could not well be ignored, and an effort is now being made to give effect to some of them.

l H I. ONSIDER THE FIELD. LILIES. BY PASTOR RUSSELTL Text: "Why take ye thought for rat. ment? Consider the lilies of the field, htow they grow; they, toil not, neither do they S?in; and yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Whlerefore, if God so clothe the gram of the field, which. to-day is. and to-norrow is cast into the oven [as fuel], shall He not much more clothe you, O ye of littlu faitlh?' (.Matt. vi. 2S-30).

Even hie disciples were in the dark concerning t.he lmeaning of many of his statements until the IHoly Spirit at Pentecost gave them ellightenmlent, aso -Jesus had promised.

ESSENTIAL TO EXPORT TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 23 March 1914
ESSENTIAL TO EXPORT TRADE. An emphatic opinion of the value of the bulk handling of wheat is held by Mr WYalter Scott, Premier of Saskatchewan, who has returned to Melbourne from a brief visit to Sydney. Speaking from his ex perience of bulk handling in Sas katchewan, and also with some knowledge of Australian condi tions, Mr 'cott's comment was sig nificant. "You will have to go in for bulk handling," he said, ' "i you hope to carry on an export business in grain in competition with other countries where this economical and effective system is in operation. After-our experience of it we in Saskatchewan would not think of doing without it. We find it absolutely necessary to enable us to carry on our export business profitably." A feature of bulk handling in Canada, added Mr Scott, is that while the main part of the system, including the inspection and grad ing of grain, is carried out by the Federal Government, the elevators are, as far as Saskatchewan is con cerned, constructed by ...

WHEAT IN BULK. INVESTIGATED IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA. A CANADIAN PREMIER IN MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 23 March 1914
WHEAT IN BULK. INVESTIGATED IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA. A CANADIAN PREMIIER IN MELBOURNE. The unqualified approval given by the Victorian Royal Commie sion on the advantages of the handling of wheat in bulk is con firmed by the result of a similar investigation which a Western Australian advisory board has just completed. In reporting to the Minister of Agriculture of that State, the board says it has studied the subject from three aspects, as it affected respectively farming, transportation from country to sea board, and transportation from seaboard to oversea market. Bulk handling involved no difficulties j for the farmers, and their compa ratively small initial outlay would soon be more than compensated by the savings. The farmers who met the board were unanimously in favor of the system. The board was informed by the Commis sioner ,of Railways that he had no objection to carrying grain in bulk, for he did not anticipate any great difficulty from a railway standpoint. He estimated that...

WELCOME HOME TO MR AND MRS A J DICK AT KIALLA EAST. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 23 March 1914
WELCOME HOME TO MR AND MRS A J DICK AT KIALLA EAST. One of the most pleasant even" ings spent in Kialla was that of Friday evening at" Clifton," Kialla East, the residence of Mr and Mrs AJ Dick, who had just returned from their wedding trip. Shortly after 8.30 about 45 of the friends of Mr and Mrs Dick assembled at a short distance from their residence. One coming suddenly upon this assembly might have wondered what dire tragedy had or was about to happen. However, a very short time would have sufficed to set any alarmist at rest, for, headed by the district tin band, a march upon "Clifton" was soon commenced. One might well say with the poet : With bands all front, and our colors spread, We swarmed o'er the parapet (garden fence), when, like the walls of Jericho, "Clifton" was encompassed seve ral times; after which the doors were thrown widely open and a hearty invitation was given to enter. Mr and Mrs Dick received their friends in the spacious diningroom, and were the recipients...
