A GREAT HISTORICAL WORK. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 21 February 1914
A GREAT HISTORICAL WORK, By the publicttion of what has been happily described in the I preface as "the birth certificates of a nation," the library com. utltee of the Commonwealth Parlia. ment has inaugurated the collected publication of the Historical Records of Australia, These "birth certifl, eates" consist of a series of lithoe graphs of original documents connect ed with the foundation of settlement and the establishment of Government and civilisation in Australia, First we have the oaths of oflice taken by Cap. tain Phillip with all the quaint archaic phraseology of the period. To readers of the twentieth century hoe sug gestions of the dynastic and sectarian struggles through which the nation had recently passed, and whech were still agitating men's minds, must seem strange as they are disc1)1ed in the curious special oaths of abjuration and abjurance Governor Phillip and his officers had to take, Replicas of ofllcial documents connected wil the estaiblishment of the church,...
ENGLAND'S WINTER FLOWERS IN THE OPEN [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 21 February 1914
ENiLAND'S WVINTEI FLOWERS IN THIE OPEN Who said winter? The flattest contradiction over of fered to the December almanac, at any rate for 165 years, is given in the bas ket of roses sent by a reader in Ryde, Isle of Wight (says "The Daily Mail," on December 21), Horace Walpole boasted of a blossom on his nectarine tree on December 26, 1718; but his re cords all go by the board. We can overwhelm him with bouquets, and give him also fruit for his flowers. A Hallsham (Sussex) garden carries to-day simultaneously roses, mistletoe and apple blossom, as strangely assor ted a trio of blossoms as ever gazed at one another out of doors across an English garden. Decorations for one Christmas table, it is already arranged, are to consist of one huge bowl of real roses and one of "Christmas roses," or hellebore, with a vase of sprays of ripe raspberries in the middle. The roses of the Isle of Wight lead th way, There are still over sixty sorts of flowers out in a Ryde garden. Roses are out not ...

WOMEN FOR LAND WORK OF CO-OPERATION [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 21 February 1914
WOMEN FOR LAND WORK OF CO-OPERATION Viscountess Falmouth presided at the annual meeting of the Women's Agrioultural and Horticultural Inter national Union held yesterday after noon (December 4, says "The Daily News") by permission of the Earl and Countess of Meath at 83, Lancaster gate. In the course of an address Lady Falmouth observed that educated wo men with a knowledge of scientific ag riculture and horticulture could do apart from their own work a great deal of work in the country-side in educating their poorer neighbors, She thought also that women were splendid pioneers in the work of agricultural co-operation, which was going to be a great thing in the future. They would have to realise that without co operation the small holder could not make his small holding pay. Speaking on the report, the hon, secretary said they had recently re ceived a communication from an em ployer, who said he needed a help to look after his books when in the gar den, "She must not be very young, ...
REMARKABLE RECORD [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 21 February 1914
REMAR(ATILE RECORD The diamond jubilee of the Rev, Samuel Harding, of the Portman street United Free Church Mission Hall, Glas. gow, has just been celebrated (says "The Westminster Gazette,") IMr Harding, in acknowledging the gift of a purse of sovereigns, Incidentally re. marked that he had never been laid asido for a single day with illness, had never had a doctor attend him, had never partaken of medicine of any kind, and never even had the toothache, It is melancholy to think that this, which ought to be the normal state of things, is now becoming so rare that when it happens to exist, the mere casual mention of it is regarded as worthy of note, So happy a condition is certainly enviable,
STOLEN PICTURE RECORD OF ACCUSED. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 21 February 1914
STOLEN PICTURE RECORD OF' ACCUSED, Perugia's pretence that he stole the "Glocon(la" from the Louvre with a view to rectoring some of the master piecels carried away by Napoleon is badly chosen (saya the Paris correspon dent of "The Daily Teolegraph" of Do' comber 16). iHe does not seoem to know that the "Gioconda" happens just to be one of the paintings of the Louvre that were never in the possession of Italy. It wan acquired from the artist by Francois I., King of France, for the sum of 1000 gold ecus, and had been at Fontainebleau and Versailles long be fore it entered the Louvre, That Peru gla simply hope to make money out of the theft seems to be proved by the fact that before he carried off the plc ture he collected the names of those who he thought might be likely pur chasers, Thus two little notebooks on which he inscribed his washing bills and found in hbl room contain significant inscrip tions. In one of them, dated December 28, 1910, that is to say, nine months before the ...

NORWAY MODERN INFLUENCE [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 21 February 1914
NORWAY MODERN INF'LUJNCEI "I have just received a letter from a friend at present travelllng in Norway, where she has not been for twelve years," says the editor of "The Vine yard,' "It was not written with any idea of publication, but so finely and sharptly does this letter, from at coun try which is blessed with one of the noblest poasantries in the world, point the evils which "The Vineyard" is out to fight, and the good which It exists to defend and encourage, that I venture, In good conscience, to print It without her permission." "It is like a dream to find oneself again in this romantic land, and in one day we have, already seen so much that it seems long since we left home! The crossing was horrid in every way, but we had some quiet hours in smooth water before we arrived in the early morning, and Stavanger with its clean, many-colored wooden houses rising out of the still fjord, and the encircling mountains stealing out of the morning mist restored one.

THE STREET CLEANER [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 21 February 1914
A paper having snid that "'To recog nise the supremacy' of the street cleaner would be to usher In the reign of chaos," "The Dally Herald" takes it to task and says:---"Now, that just brings us very close to the root of the matter. 'Supremacy' is indeed the wrong word, an instance of angry ex aggeration. The street cleaner does not want supremacy. Ile wants Justice, the right to live a human and progressive life, his place in the sun, In the social and spiritual economy he is as truly and deeply to be considered as the artist, the author, 01' the doctor, We may tlhus re-state thile propostion: 'To recogniso the importance, the dignity, and the possibility of the street cleaner (and a hundred suchll as he) is to usher in the reign of sanity and humanity,' "
