THE WOMEN'S HOSPITAL How much tlio nbtiou of a hospital lias changed. 1 licro was a time when the words called up a vision of a baie, biild building, whose very aspect struck a chill to tiTo spirits. Tnore may bo plenty still, at ler.st one aspect of hospital life, to strike a chill, but as far as outward appearances go, the hospital of tb-day. whetliet* public or ; pr'vute, is made by flowers by coloring, and by that perfect cleanliness which is a charm in itsolf, to present an appearance so in-• viting that in itself strikes a note of hope and encouragement to those whose fate it may be to take up their temporary residence within its doors. Darragh, the comfortable, sgmire-built cot tage in Carthage-street, wltri Its wide veran dahs, trollised and shaded by a Wealth of creepers, and its spacious, square, lofty rooms adapts itsolf admirably to the pur- , poses of a women's hospital, for which Nurse Muriel Robertson recently purchased it, and while it has every appliance that modern...

THE WOMEN OF GERMANY. THEIR SENSIBLE CHARITIES. (In the London "Daily Mall.") [Newspaper Article] — The Tamworth Daily Observer — 7 January 1911
THE WOMEN OF GERMANY. THEIR SENSIBLE CHARITIES. (By Francis H. Low.) (In the I,onrton "Daily Mali.") I have spoken of the admirably common sense, the powers of organisation allied with rear! tenderness, which characterise the Gorman woman, who regards some kind of philanthropic work as part of her national service. Let me describe two examples of this spirit,, which f have studied—one in Karlsruhe, the other in Bielefeld. The lat ter town is, of course, a flourishing com mercial community. The former, the capi tal of Baden and a royal residence, is noted for its enlightened educational movements. No more striking illustration of the in fluence that., can be wielded by women in j grfiat national reforms, and of the vahie of their co-operation in the philanthropic work of the State, without either the po- ! litical or municipal suffrage, couid bo found than in the operation of the law in Germany with regard to the treatment of the illegiti mate child. It. is now the law throughout the...

Iler father' snid he had 110 idea that the child had been getting lnt(| mischief.

COUNTRY FREEZING WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Tamworth Daily Observer — 7 January 1911
COUNTRY FREEZING WORKS. The honorary Minister lor Agriculture (Mr. Treile).has been giving attention for some time past to the question ot killing anil freezing works at country centres and the transport ot the meat to the city for disribution among the consumers. A definite announcement on the subjects is0expected in the near future tor the information and guid ance ot stockowners. There has been for a considerable time a desire on the part of the meatgrowers for a closer-at-home system of realising on their products. At present they regard with con siderable disfavor the deterioration that takes place In the transport of the live stock toMhe metropolitan sale yards, and, of course, there is no doubt that, in the inter ests of both consumer and producer, the stock should be killed, as close to the pas tures as . possible. The establishment of freezing works in the country centres, they argue, will mean economy all round in costs, especially In regard to the carrying of the meat on ...
HELD BY 30 FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Tamworth Daily Observer — 7 January 1911
• HELD BY 30 FARMERS. Since 1867 "the land has all been taken up in the Falkland Islands, and i^-now held by some thirty odd farmers, including com panies, whoso • stations vary in size from 1500 to 700,000 acres. The largest carries nearly 200,000 shdep, the smallest a few hun dred. It takes from an acre and a-hal£ to about four acres to graze one sheep, and experience has'shown that the best results are obtained from a crossbred animal in which the Romney Marsh predominates. The farmers have tire right to purchase their leaseholds from the Crown at the rate of 3/ per aero (10 per cent, in cash, and the balance in thirty annual instalments at 3 per cent.) and inoat of \hein have taken advantage of the liberal terms offered by the Government. That sheep farming, the main industry of the Falklands, is a distinctly remunerative liiidertaking, notwithstanding the somewhat primitive methods employed, is apparent from the fact that a large pro portion of those engaged in it can afford to...

WAITING AND WATCHING., Sir George fteid, High' Commissioner for the Com'monweath of Australia, lectured on 10th Inst.,'at the Birmingham University on "Australia: Its Resources, Trade, and Pos sibilities." The lecture was .the second t>f a series on the, present commercial and indus trial condition of the chief British Domin ions, arranged by the Faculty of Commerce ! for the^ benefit alike of the business com munity and students. Referring to the pas toral wealth of the country, Sir George said that a great meat trade was springing up the chilling process opening the markets of the world to their goods. All over the world there was a cry heard which must bo heeded—the • cry of the people for cheaper meat. There was po nation in Europe from which the cry did not go up, and he trusted that when soon the" barriers were taken down to admit their meat into the markets of Europe, Australia would be able to sup ply- the wants of those millions of people.

THE TIMBER WEALTH OF GLEN INNES. [Newspaper Article] — The Tamworth Daily Observer — 7 January 1911
THE TIMBER WEALTH OF GLEN INNES. Recognising the vast importance of the hardwood timber trade and the diminishing quantity of those varieties which are indis pensible for building purposes, Mr. H. C. St. Vincent recently brought under tho notice of the Government the necessity of taking, action "whereby the forestry resources of Central New England may be developed to the fullest ©stent possible, reports the "Ex aminer.' Outside of local circles, it is not • generally known that the eastern slopes of the Glen Innes d'strict contain gigantic for ests of timber suitable for commercial' pur i poses, but, owing to the difficulties of ac cess, very little has been done to realise what is o very valuable State asset. There Is a largo and increasing demand in the great northern and north-western districts for hardwood timber for building purposes, and it is felt the Government should do something by malting roads into the forests, so that the demand may be properly met.
