WEST V. STURT. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 25 May 1912

WEST V. STURT. It was just after 3 when Noon- bounced the ball on the Adelaide Oval, where Start and West each standing lost two and von and West, each standing lost two and won Conquest, Benfrey, and Fox were left out of Sturt 21, and Slattery was replac ed by Dwyer for West. The rucks were Henricks, Dunne, and Bannigan (Sturt), and Moore, Dwyer, and Dowhng (West). Fine long kicking was the rule directly the ball was bounced. West pressed hard for five minutes, and the brant of the work in repelling fell upon Walsh, Mer ciless crowding spoilt the play, no chance being given to make the game open. Good ruck play enabled Sturt to push down towards the scoring board with the wind sehind them, and from a free Heinrichs put on a goal. A great improvement was infused into the work of both sides after Sturt had opened their account. Keen kicking, clever judgment, and well sustained handball kept the sphere travel ling at a great pace. Capital marking was prominent on both sides. Edwards, ...

South Adelaide journeyed to the Hind marsh Oval' this afternoon to try con clusions with Torrens, and a large ctuhhI of enthusiasts gathered to witness the match, the attendance being from 3,500 to 4,000.

THE MIRROR OF FASHION. The New Millinery—Scantily Trimmed Hats—A Feature of the New Modes. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 25 May 1912

THE MIRROR OF FASHION. The New Millinery — Scantily brimmed Hats — A Feature of the New Modes. By 'Irene.' It isalways a sign of a new season ap proaching when one wants a new hat: but what sign is it when one wants half a dozen? The masculine comment would be extravagance, but one hat is out of the question; and all those who have visited the new winter shows of millinery fashions say that almost every girl could be her own milliner, providing, of course, that she has an eye for colour and a capacity for taking mental notes on the models that will exactly suit her. For every one's need, and every one's vogue can be met and matched — even to. the half-dozen — without being charged with . the masculine comment. The reason is not far to seek. For there are hats of inconspicuous size, hats picturesque, hats practical, hats simple, and hats elaborate. Hats of vivid colours there are; but there are hats in subdued colours also. There are hats made of straw, of velvet, and of silk, so tha...

THE RIMARY ROUDCER DRY FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 25 May 1912

^gJjj^J^^^^^^- Bill /v. Oondticted by Professor Angus, M.P. DRY FARMING. _ With the barometer persisting in record ing only high readings, and the ever increasing number of pessimistic forecasts of the probabilities of the season, the ma jority pf wheatgrowers, and especially tnose situated in the drier portions of the State, are not looking forward to the fu ture with any degree of confidence. The general feeling, however, is that the ex tremely disastrous seasons of 1902-3 axe not likely to recur, owing to the improved scientific treatment of the soil by present day agriculturists. The salvation of many thousands pi farmers in the semi-arid regions of A or America has been, the method _of cul vation known as 'dry fanning,' which, as a consequence, has many advocates an- adherents. The underlying principles o thjq system have been so often explained in current agricultural literature that further reference need not be made to them here.

Peake, Premier of- South Australia, who has wo,n his high place in the. State only bv indomitable persistence and studious application to the questions of the day. A thinker and a student, rather than a brilliant orator, lie can hold his own when it comes to delivering a vigorous speech or exchanging verbal blows in the battle of party politics, for his mind is stored with a stock of well-considered arguments with which to support his cause. Out of Parliament or off the hustings he is a man of thought and action rather than of words. Nine out of every ten public men, for instance, are only too willing to talk about themselves to a newspaper in terviewer. . Mr. Peake is the. modest tenth. You have to get him speaking of some outside subject that interests him before his reserve is relaxed. Politics he only discusses when it...
