GERANG [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 20 February 1914

Prom our own Correspondent. The great bait of the wheat has now been carted, and the amount stacked at the local railway station is evidence that the yiell has been above the average. Already the amount received is about 50,000 bags, and the total promises to be a record. Most of our sportsmen had to be content with small bags on opening day, and the number of shooters who congregated round the larger swamps give little chance for individual re cords. Harvest thanksgiving services were celebrated at the local Metho dist Ohurch on. the 8th iast. The in terior of the b'uilding was appropria tely decorated with the various pro ducts of the district. The afternoon service was conducted by Mr Cann ing, of Dimboola, and the evening eer. vice by the Rev. Mr Sussex. Fairly large congregations were pre sent. On Tuesday, 17th inst, a concert was held in the Methodist Church. The Rev Mr Sussex presided, and the attendance; despite the great heat that is being experienced, was fairly good. Almo...

DUCK SHOOTING. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 20 February 1914

DUCK SHOOTING. Sportsmen put in another success ful half day on the' Nhill lake on Wednesday afternoon, when shooting commenced at 1.30 p.m. and con tinued until about 4.30 p.m. The water is rapidly drying up and consequently shooters were able to station themselves on every place of advantage. Notwithstanding the very hot weather, fully 60 guns were engaged, some excellent bags result ing in spite of the fact that the gamo was wary, and took to hi^h altitudes. A'party of 5 sportsmen from Dooen got 108; Messrs Parkin Bros and J. C. Macdonald, 110 ; Batsnn Bros. 75 ; Rintoule Bros. : C. Bourdon and Hov "Weir, 5i : and A. F. Mraill and W. Skeggs. 40. Bags of from 7 to 20 were quite common. So far the Nhill lake has proved itself to be about the best water for game in the district.

She thill free Fross j With wmca la Incokpokatkd the " Nhill Mail." PRIDA.Y. 20th FEBRUARY Our Vacant Spaces. ' To Victoria the matter of closer settlement is of such supreme im portance, that any members of the House of Assembly who may have become unusually excited in discuss ing it must bo pardoned. The State is spending millions of money in buy ing big estates to be cut up into allot ments suitable for the small holder; it is advancing other millions tathose small holders to put them on their feet. This policy, if successfully car ried out, means- thev' peopling of our vacant spaces, and the lasting pros perity of our rather overgrown cities. However, the committee appointed to inquire into the matter issued aj report which has filled many mom-1 bers of Parliament and many of the public with dismay. We are told that good land has been bought at too high a price, that so much poor land has been purchased that the would-be settler has loft thousands of acres of it on the broad bac...

COSTLY ROYAL HABITS [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 20 February 1914

COSTLY ROYAL HABITS The Bavarian Finance Minister, in supporting a motion for the increase of the Bavarian King's Civil List to £270,000, observed, according to Dr Mullermeiningen, who opposed the vote (says the Berlin correspondent of "The Daily Mail"), that the expenses of the royal shoots were not excessive, and it was better that royalty should shoot and hunt than run after "Venus, which was still a more expensive oc cupation. Dr Mullermeiningen pro tested against the assumption that royalty must have expensive habits and that it is better to choose the less of two evils- "These are hard times for everybody," he declared, "and the Court must be sparing too."

CLEVER SHEEP DOGS. At the Coibinabbiu stock sale on Mon day, a block occurred among a mob of sheep that had been yarded, and at the word of command, a dog belonging to Mr A. B. Kemp, of Heathcote, ran along the back of the packed sheep, and, when told to do so, dropped into tho midst of them, deftly scattering the animals and relieving the block. Several '■imes the clever dog did this to the ad miration of the stockmen present. There are two dogs at Bendigo that have been taught pimilar tactics. Messrs K O'Brien and T.

FINGER PRINT SYSTEM IDENTIFICATION RECORD. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 20 February 1914

FINGER PRINT SYSTEM IDENTIFICATION RECORD. English detectives are astonislied by the fact that, though the Paris .police were in possession of an infallible clue, in the form of a finger-print on the glass of the discarded frame, to the identity of the man who stole "La Gio conda," from the Louvre two years ago, no arrest was made until last Friday (says "The X>aily Mail" of December 16). "In France," said a prominent au thority yesterday, "although the police take finger-prints, they depend chiefly on physical measurements, which they classify and file. If tliey arrest a man they can by his measurements identify him with former crimes, but they are somewhat at sea unless an arrest has been made. In England the finger-print is the chief form of identification; the ordinary measurements are taken, but they are of secondary importance. Give us a fair finger-print, and if the maker of that 'print has been in the hands of the police before we can in 999 cases out of 1000 tell you who...

L1VINQ-1N ABUSES MEAT ON THEIR PLATES. Hotel, club and restaurant workers crowded the Kingsway Theatre yes terday to demand the abolition of the living-in system and the application of the Shops Act (reports "The Daily News" on December 15). Mr P. C. Hoffmann, general organ iser of the Shop Assistants' Union, said that in one of the most fashion able houses in the West End the as sistants had to sleep in the shop. In a large town in the North of England' a well-known firm of drap ers had been heavily fined for having 011 its premises carcases of diseased mutton for the consumption of the staff. "You will hardly credit it," he continued, "but that very firm had a list of rules, one of which read: 'Any member of the staff leaving meat on his or her plate will bo fined six pence.' "
