The Heart of a Girl (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER X.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 13 February 1914
[fie Heart of a Girl By HENRY FARMER, Author of "The Money-Londer,'' "12a Quiltry Street," "Bondage," etc. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER X.—Continued. Thome's liand closed over the bank-note. The general public had con signed the Hasted bank robbery to the limbo of forgotten things. The police had pigeon-holed it. Only a very small portion of the money stolen, in the shape of notes concealed in Stan more's bedroom, had been recovered at the time. The police theory had been, and was, that tlie bulk, composed mostly of notes, bonds and securities, ' the greater part being more or less negotiable with caution, might after a time filter back into circulation, probably on the Continent. The race course was another recognised place for the getting rid of stolen notes. The police were pretty sure on one sub ject, whether Stanmore had invented the story of Roy Stannard to distract attention from his real confederate, or had worked the robbery single handed; when Stanmore had served his tim...

CAUSES OF FINANCIAL RECOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 13 February 1914
CAUSES OF FINANCIAL RECOVERY, Some perplexity has been express ed as to the exact causes which have led to such a sudden revival in the .financial position in London, and the great advances in Consols and other stocks and shares in that centre. The great recovery started suddenly on Monday, January 10, with the unexpected success of the Victorian loan of £1,000,000, which was subscribed four and a half times over, and then was immedia tely quoted at a premium. Stocks and shares then began booming im mediately and Cousols have made a wonderful recovery. Although there was no premoni tion in financial circles in London, at the time of the departure of the last English mail, that such a recovery would take place tho, ' Statist" of December 27, in his review of the monetary position contains some thing of sppcial interest on the ques tion. It states circumstances from which the probability of an easier position might be inferentially drawn The following is an extract from the article . ...
THE WORK-PEOPLE OF EUROPE. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 13 February 1914
THE WORK-PEOPLE OF EUROPE Much in our day has been, and is both written and spoken concerning social science. The bearings of thf suhjpct H?em to be infinite, and this is so because every progressive movement is attended *it.h new and unforseen evils. As we advance in civilisation we are again and again reminded that no human state can be a perfect state. Our very reforms have counter disadvan tages, needing in time to be them selves reformed; frequently they open up difficulties m*ver dreamed of What an amount of pamphleteering has the labor question given rise to ! Let anvone go to the British Museum and he will find one-fortieth of the ten miles of bookshelves occupied by works bearing directly or indirectly on that subject Consult "Hansard," and dreary will be the vast, wastes of epppchification over which you will have to travel, Now. in spite of all this written and spoken wisdom there yet remains much to "be said on the conditions and modes of human labor, and these must perp...

AGRICULTURAL MANURES. NITROGENOUS DEPOSIT FOUND NEW VICTORIAN INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 17 February 1914
AGRICULTURAL MANURES. NITROGENOUS DEPOSIT FOUND NEW VICTORIAN INDUSTRY. With the passing years users of superphosphates are becoming more and more apprehensive as to the effect that class of manure is having on their lands. At the start farmers regarded superphosphate as their economic saviour, but looking upon some of their paddocks to-day they are revising many of their early and sanguine opinions. As a rule, the ground is becoming harder and more difficult to work, and many are speculating as to the ultimate result. It is generally conceded that super phosphate not only fails to give permanent manurial benefits to the soil, bat that- its use becomes as chronic as tho drug habit—in a way of speaking, the tiring land is whip ped into activity by the superphos phate drug. The absence of nitrogen, and the deposition of acids, is the problem that is facing tho wheat grower, and the other users of super 1 phosphates and such-like artificial manures. Thus there is frequently a preferenc...
DOW WELL. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 17 February 1914
DOW WELL. (trom our own Correspondent). Harvesting operations are now practic.Jly completed, and the farmers are enabled to reckon up the results of their year's labour. The crops have yielded splendidly, and the qer.erui average is between 6 and 8 bags to the acre. On the whole this season's yield may be considered as one of the best on record for this dis trict. One paddock in particular which has never before grown a good crop, lias this year yielded 7 bags to the acre. The seed sown was Federa tion on tallowed ground. Some of the farmers are storing their wheat in anticipation of a rise m the price before f.h'j winter is over. On Feb ruary 5tfi 1909, wheat was selling at 3s oi l per bushel, and on April 20th of the same year it was up to 5s 2d per bushel. Should the price advance as much this year, those who store would make a fine cheque, providing they sold at the right time. During the past :> or 4 weeks, whilst the farmers were busy carting their wheat, the roads presente...

:u: Krom Our Own Correspondent;. "Enough for ine if with swallow wings I lightly skim o'er the surface of things.'1 Auain, Mr Editor, I hear your fraiitic cries of "copy," and ere the expose ot human endurance is ex ceeded and those cries fade away in the dim distance into yells of un adulterated disgust, I hasten to empty out the "newsbag." 1 sup pose to mention the weather would be rather superfluous, as no doubt all the inlu.bil.anis of the West Wim mera and, for that matter, any other part, are quite in touch with what we have had, the last few weeks being " tolerably warm." A shower or two now would be very beneficial, if only to replenish the water supply. I once used to pride myself on pre dicting the weather by various signs, but a friend told me that "a man weather wise was a fool otherwise," so now I never attempt to look into the future. Y/heat carting is now dwindling towards a termination here, and judging by the thousands of bags that have been sent away the har vest b...

CRUELTY TO BIRDS. Steps are to be taken to teBt the legal ity of pigeon, starling and sparrow shoot ing competitions on the ground that the' birds, or a great number of them, arc subjected to cruolfey.

THE OBSTINATE CAR. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 17 February 1914
THE OBSTINATE OAR. Recently a popular resident of a town, not 100 miles from Nhill, purchased an automobile, and from the start ex perienced very little difficulty in hand ling it; in fact the graceful manner in which he negotiated tho corners created great astonishment and envy among the other local motorists. However, the other .day this debonair chauffeur, by some incomprehensible mesms hit the end of a log near the woodheap with tho front wheel, as lie drove into tho garage in the back yafd, with the result that tho automobile nearly demolished the build ing with tho shock—the back wall pre venting it from going right through tho place. " That's the way to stop her," remarked tho owner, as ho was nearly thrown oil the seat. Still, the engine kept going, and the commotion caused quite a orowd of motor enthusiasts to congregate, but unfortunately they did not know anything about " stopping her. " " Oh, well, never mind, she'll stop when she gets tired, " the pro prietor said in re...
