Some light-conditioned wools, from the Upper Goulburn, Gippsland, North-Eastern and Western districts of Victoria, together with a few consignments from Tasmania and the S.E. of South Australia were in cluded, but the selection, as a whole, was a miscellaneous one, being largely com posed of second-hand lots and remnants of clips. Competition was wonderfully keen and well sustained throughout, -both Yorkshire and Continental buyers purchasing freely, and they succeeded in effecting what was practically a total clearance, at prices representing the highest of the series. Their total sales for the season to date amounted to about 73,800 bales, as compared with 62,586 for the corresponding period of last year.

High-street) was charged with ex posing for sale schnapps under a false trade description.

Why," plaintively, "what else could I have done?" "The weather's very trying," said the aunt. "Weather?" echoed the visitor, with bitterness. "Well for me if I'd nroth ing worse than that to complain about." They went into the front room, where the aunt opened a window, brought forward an easy chair. The other de clined to sit down, and walked to and fro as well as the thick forest of fur niture permitted, twisting white gloves. and frowning at her reflection when she passed by a small mirror.

BARBAROUS MILLINERY PROTECT WILD NATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 5 February 1914

BARBAROUS MILLINERY PROTECT WILD NATURE. M. Edmond Perrier, Director of the Natural History M1useum in Paris, who has just returned from the Berne International Conference for the Pro tection of Nature (says the Paris cor respondent of "The Daily News") states that a committee is to be formed (with its seat at Basle) with the ob ject of framing severe Customs laws designed to prevent the destruction of certain animal species. In Africa, for instance, explained 1M. Perrier, there are only 400,000 ele phants left, and they are being killed at the rate of 40,000 a year, whereas their rate of reproduction is slow. Wnhales are in a like case, and M. Perrier foresees very hard times for the Norwegian Trust, which combines 20 whale fishery companies, whose shareholders are small investors. Dealing with the osprey, which is found only in New Guinea, M. Perrier points out that the aigrette is obtained from the male bird, in whose plumage occur annually at the laying season the 40 odd sprays ...

HOME DEFENCE [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 5 February 1914

HOMlE DEFENCE Lord Glenconner (MIr Asquith's brother-in-law and former Liberal M.P. for Salisbury), addressing the Liverpool Liberal Federation yesterday (says the "Daily Mail" of December 2) said that despite attenuated numbers the Territorials cost £500,000 more than Lord Haldane assured us would be the maximum cost for the full establish ment of 312,000 men. That was not sound business, and the time had come for an end to be put to these wasteful leakages. What were we to do? There was an alternative measure between the Terri torial Force as now raised and conscrip tion, the latter of which was unneces sary and had never been advocated. The alternative was to compel the youth of all classes to take its turn in the Territorial Force, but instead of the six months' training which Lord Hal dane proposed should be given after war broke out, there should be a pre liminary period of recruits' training. If the extension of the Territorials. both in numbers and training, could be satisfa...
