AN HEROIC ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 28 March 1914
AN iHEIOIO AOT, A hitherto unpublished inoident is worthy of mention. Some years ago a little child had got on the line, and was sln certain danger of being mangled by a passing train, when Mrs Robinson noted the perilous situation, With utter disrogard of the conseqnoneos, she dashed at the child, and snatched it clear of the engineo, Her own osppe was re malckable, for the engine brushed hero dress, and touched her wyith sufliolelt force to whirl her round. In that one act she proved herself a heroine, This, couplod with a large, warm heart, oroated the wave of sympathy which passed over all residents when the announcenent was made of her shocking and sudden death.
THE DEPARTMENT'S REPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 28 March 1914
'THE DEFPARTMENT'S REPiLY, " Speaking generally," said Mr W. Fitzpatrick, Chief Commissioner, and without intimate knowledge of the case mentioned, the department has shown all consideration -possible for widows of employes, by providing them with gates toattond. in many cases, if the Commissioners had not extended considaeation, poor women and families would have been thrown out into the world to struggle for existence outside the service. The general practice has been to give these wcmen ohargt 'of gvtes suit able for th.m. Sometimes they have sons and daughters who work in the neighborhood, and are able to lend assistance, It is not out of a deii, e for economy that the Oomnmis ioners, employ women at gates.. Often we could have constructed cattle pits at gates, but have oefrained from doing so, as we did not wish to take em ploymnent away from the ga?keepeor, a woman with children, We have asked for the papers in the case under notice to be sent to us for full consideration,"
Killed Whilst on Duty THE MENTONE ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 28 March 1914
Killed Whilst on Duty THE MEN'L'ONE AOOIDENT, Dr R, Id. Cole, the Coroner, on Tuesday, at the Morgue, inquired goo theq aoiden~n whigh. occurred at Moentono railway station oil !March 14, when Jessie Ann Robinson, 55, the gatekeeper at the Baloombe" street oaossing, was knocked down and beheaded by a train which was "setting back," The Coroner found that she met her death by misadventure. In re cording his finding, l)r Cole said the train wis at the station a very short time, and it did not allow the woman much time to operate such a heavy gate. He did not thiak the guard was blameless, He should have made sure that the gate was closed to road traffic. .He had his own private opinion about this. The enginedriver, of course, was in no way to blame, She was sacrificed to the oxigencies of holiday traffio. Here is a woman, 55 years of age, in charge of heavy railway gates, which it is intended to make interlocking gates, and this woman is left in charge of these gates for seven hours o...
The Question of Open Communion [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 28 March 1914
The Quesjlon of Opn Lon1ntinlon By A. P. Wilson, The newspapers of Melbourne have been recently devoting considerable space to the discussion of what, is known as the " Kikuyu Controversy." It seems a strange thing that ,tihe focus of the whole newspaper world has been upon a question of seeming unimportance, but the underlying contention is so great, and the scope of the question so wide as to demand the attention of the whole religious world. The facts of the case aie these: During recent yoars there has come a wave of missionary enthusiasm over the Mahommnedan religion, particularly in Africa. Missionary traders are going throughout that vast country with the cry that " God is great and Mahomet is His prophet" The dangers of this religion are well portrayed in ' The Reproach of Isal," and in the report of ,the Soadan Mission of 1811, In the latter there are some trenchant re marks by Dr Karl Kurney, which are worthy of consideration. In the Mahommedan University at Cairo there ar...

A HU[?]BLE BEGINNING. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 28 March 1914
A HU"BLE BEGINNING. Australia now conairs about 90 million sheep, and thi annual value of the pastoral industry exceeds 0CO million sterling. In view of this, it is interesting to turn to the origin of the merino sheep in New South Wales, where the pastoral purauit had its origip, In 1803, Captain John Mac.rther, who imported the fret m rhos. to Australia, was on a visit to London, and he delivered an address befqre a meeting, over which Lord Hobart presided. "I consider it my duty," he said, "respectfully to represent to His Majesty's Ministers that I have found from an experience of many ytare, the climate of Now South Wales pe culiarly adapted to the increase of line wool sheep, and that from the unlimited extent of luxuriant p'stur ages with which that country abounds millions of those valuable an'm il may be raised in a few years with but little other expense than the hire of a few shepherds, The specimens of wool I have with me have been in speeted by- the beat judges of wool ...

THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 28 March 1914
THE DEVELOPMEN·r OF THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. The Royal C(onnidsiun which was oppointed to inquire into the (.:: n tion of railways and porto in the •''orthern Territory, ban prepared two comprehensive statoennts which sholuld prove invaluable to those en. gaged in formulating a settlemin. policy. Unfortunately the Commui lsonors were limited for time, and 3o were obliged to forego an Inalpec tion of the Darkly Tablelands and the Victoria River Country-the t.rv tl'acts which show the greatest tracts which show the greatest amount of development, and where the pastoral industry in mo3t exten sively pursued. This being so, the Commissioners do not feel jutstiid in expressing an 'opinion on the agrl cultural future of the ''Terrtory, c:n sidered in roeltionship to rail ay policy in the coastal division. So far an possible produc's ?.T concerned, the report leaves nothin: to be desired: Most, if not alt the tropical productsn may be grown, an(i there is practically an unlimit-d area to wo...

AN ANCIENT WEAPON. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 28 March 1914
AN ANCII'NT WEAPON, A curious stone weapon, extremely heavy and shaped like a "mere" (a small and effective Maori club), but fitted with a long handle, was recent ly found by a New Zealander in a cave in the Waikaremoana district. It is so heavy that it requires two hand to lift it, and it is not therefore likely to have been a weapon car rled in battte, fome of the Maorls themselves suppose it was merely sned for dispatching prisoners taken in war, others that it was left in the cave by Te Kooti in his historic trek from Waikaremoana inthe 70's,.'rhe probability is that it is very much older, and belonged to the Tuhoe or Urewera people, who fought in the earlier days all over that district.
