THE PRIMARY PRODUCER. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 13 February 1914
THE PRIMARY PRODUCER, --4-------- During the course of his speech in response to the toast of his health at a civic reception given in Melbourne in his honor, Earl Grey, who is on a visit to Australia, said:-You have brought here the greatest and best traditions of the British race, and it Is the duty of Australians to reproduce them. You have here, too, the finest physique of the race. The people who mlgrate-I do not like the word emi grate when applied to movements be tween parts of the empire-to Austra lia are not the worst of our race; they are the flower of it. From the point of view of physique, Australia is to be envied the people she is gaining from the mother country. Then you have this glorious climate and the sea in front of you. With all the advantages, if you can only add to them spiritu al grandeur, there is. nothing that -you should not be able to: accomplish. One of the inost inspiring things -that his tory teaches is that there- is nothing impossible for him who is ...
STOCK AND CROP CONDITIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 13 February 1914
STOCK AND CROP CONDITIONS. The following statement of the con dition of stock, crops, pastures, water supply, etc., for January, is based up on the reports of the meteorological observers throughout the State of Victoria: -Throughout the northern wheat areas the end of January found, as usual, harvesting completed, and farmers busy carting their grain to the railway stations. In general wheat yields were highly satisfactory, in spite of the vicissitudes of the growing season. There were, of course, ex ceptions-outbreaks of rust having reduced yields in a few cases, hail and wind storms in others. The first two, though very destructive in places, probably had not much effect upon results in the aggregate, but wind storms were such a general ex perience that they must have made a very perceptible difference. Curiously enough, the Western border districts provided the extremes in good and bad results, the former being reached in the Western \Wimmera. where bet ter crops have probably n...

A NEW EVENING WRAP. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 13 February 1914
A NEW EVENING WRAP. This is a very up-to-date design for an evening wrap, yet it is so simple that the most inexperienced home dressmaker can make it. The body of the wrap is in two pieces only. without a seam under the arms. There is hardly an armhole, and there is cer tainly nothing to crush the frailest of frocks. The collar may have a deep square or rounding outline at the back, and may be of all-over lace or corded silk. The wrap may be made in faced cloth, velvet, charmeuse or ottoman silk. M3.

RAPID LIFE NO TRUE SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 13 February 1914
RAPID LIFE NO TRUE SOCIETY. Life has become extremely sensa tional and "rapid" on its outer surface; the women, who were the element cf "cquietism" in the generation and generations 'which preceded ours, hav ing acquired a greater restlessness and a keener appetite for show and mo:c ment than the mrn.n writes Mr H. WV. alassingham in the "Dally News." Spiritual restlessness keeps pace wlth his physical instability. A cloud of new doctrines, expedients, remedies, enthus inasm, aspirations, and exhalations of the perturbed mind of the age fills the air. It is hard to keep men's minds on ends which they really desire; so :on fused is the intelligence, and -so per turbed the conscience, of the directing or the enjoying multitude. A certain superficiality and light h""?'terdness characterise the philan '1i:ei:i,: i: a u' nar'les are :ltot vary ']a w,.y, all men :r, cs-?se:dly =';"." goodý others: but ? lo nut .·: , ~::do "o "n':.

IMMORALITY AND TRADE STATEMENT BY SOCIAL PURITY WORKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 13 February 1914
IMIMORALITY AND TRADE STATEMENT BY SOCIAL PURITY WORKERS. "We have to regret that the great boom in trade which has, more or less, affected every part of the kingdom In the past year has led to an increase of immorality." This striking state ment occurs in the annual report of the Central South London Free Church Council-Social Purity, Rescue, and Temperance Sections. "Although there has been a slight increase in the number of prosecu tions," the report also states, "we have been glad to recognise not only an unprecedently small number of discharges, but also a remarkable paucity in the number of defending solicitors who have ventured their ser vices on behalf of the misdemeanants and criminals who have been charged." Sister Margaret's rescue work con tinues to prosper. For the past year it represents the saving of 58 girls on the brink of ruin and the rescue of 46 from evil living.
ALPINE JOY PARADISE OF SNOWS [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 13 February 1914
ALPINE JOY PARADISE OF SNOWS "Who can forget the seven miles of glacier that he descended in one un broken motion?" asks Mr Arnold Lunn, t in the course of an article in "The Cornhill Magazine." "The slope was so even and unchang ing that he seemed to be standing still while the valley glided upwards and the hounding cliffs moved by to a stately measure. Then slowly the earth lost its swiftness. There was a slight pressure on the soles of his feet, as the glacier stopped moving and the snows came to rest. But these things must be felt. "I can never look from the windows of a great hotel, out on to the snows of old adventure, without a quickening of the pulse and an over-mastering de sire for the secret and silent valleys where gymkhanas cease from troubling In',l the tullrkey trots no more. Just as surely as autumn calls the swallow to the south, so the shortening of the days carries a warrant from the white Paradise whose magic casements reveal some vision of ultimate beauty. PERFE...
The Great Montamor Case. CHAPTER VII.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 13 February 1914
The Great Montamor Case. By ALICE M1. DIEHL, Authoress of "The Knave of Hearts," CHAPTER VII.-Continued." "Stop!" cried Gwendolen, fiercely. She was deadly pale. She gasped for breath. "'Iow you. who are no more Lord Montamor than I am, dare to talk as you are talking, shows me that you deserve no mercy from any one, least of all from me-me, who am bound to protect the name of my dead cousin Robert, whom you pre tend to be, whom you insult and out rage by pretending to be, if it costs me my life. Understand, I hold docu ments which must bring you to pris on for years--formerly they would have brought you to the gallows. The best thing you can do is to go-go leaving a confession of your crime as an atonement for your. sin." He had murmured "'My God!" as she was speaking. Then had half risen from his seat, on second thoughts sinking back. He looked ghastly, his features drawn and con vulsed. "Madam. you must be mad," he said, staring at her with puzzled ap prehension. "You--hold-docum...
OUR SYDNEY LETTER. The P.L.L. Conference. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 13 February 1914
OUR SYDNEY LETTER. The P.L.L. Conference. Political interest has chiefly centred in the P.L.L. Conference, which has been sitting since the commencement of the month. Delegates have been mercifully preserved from the blunder perpetrated at their meeting last year, when, among other extraordinary proceedings, they complacently passed a resolution atfirming the necessity of establishing a working day of six hours! The most objectionable fea ture of the present gathering is its intolerance. Not only was it strongly asserted, without any effective pro test, that any person who does not accept and actively advocate the re ferenda proposals should "get out of the movement," but a plea on behalf of Socalist candidates, who are at one with the wirepullers in their de sire to abolish capitalism, and to get rid of the unpleasant necessity of working for a fellow citizen, was ruthlessly turned down. Any Socialist candidate who opposes a "selected" Labor man is to be regarded as an op ponent fo...
PERFORMING ANIMALS CRUELTIES IN TRAINING [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 13 February 1914
PERFORMING ANIMALS CRUELTIES IN TRAINING Many allegations were made against trainers at a meeting held last night in the Kensington Town Hall to pro test against cruelty to performing animals (reports "The Daily Telegraph" December 16). The audience, of whom the majority were ladies, indicated un mistakably that they felt strongly on the matter: hut a few of those present. headed by Captain Woodward and Mr Ginnett, made vigorous protests against certain of the chlargo of the riealkers on the ground of their vagueness. A. nutmber of letters were read from "T.cr.- nrley of Blackburn: 1 can only say that I have the most intense ab horrence of all performances that in volve helpless animals in wanton suf fering. MIr C. Bernard Shaw: A performing animal trained by kindness would be just as intolerable and unnatural a spectacle as one trained in the usual way. Mr Jerome K. Jerome: My objection to the performing quadruped is the in jury he causes to the human biped. They degrade every huma...
