THE WOMAN WHOM WAGNER LOVED. The Famous Musician's Melody of Life. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 26 March 1914

THE WOMAN WHOM WAGNER LOVED. The FamoUs Musician's Melody of Life. Tlhe deposition of the mad kind, Otto of Bavaria, which has just been deci ded, recalls to the minds of all music lovErs ihe genius of the greatest mo dern composer, Richard Wagner. For it was King Ludwig, the brother of the poolr madman, who befriended Wagner in the days of his greatest poverty, and 'whose patrdnage enabled him to -produce his immortal works. King Ot to himself sas a friend of this hero of music. Wagner's operas, "Lohengrin,"' "Tannhbaus-r," and the other master pieces of his "Niebeluigenlled," are ncow popular throughout the world. But when he produced them they aroused the hatred of his critics and a passion ate storm of ridicule and contempt. He. wrote some of them in direst poverty and with the despairing courage of a man who knows that he is in advance of his time. They reflect the storm and stress of his own life and charac ter, but they reveal also the nobility and idealism and tenderness wh'...

MEDICAL INSPECTION OF IMMIGRANTS. ITS EFFECT ON IMMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 26 March 1914

MEDICAL INSPECTION OF IMMIGRANTS. ITS EFFECT ON IMMIGBRATION. Au:horities in the different States are strongly of opinion that the proposed medical inspection of immigrants will seriously inter fre with the immigration more ment. It is -probable that the qnestion wilt be discoussed at the Premiers' Conference, and that joint action wili be taken with a view of inducing the Common wealth aothorities to modify the proposals. A letter resp-cting the medical inspection wasrec-ived at the Immigration Bureau from the acting director of emigration in London (Mr Rayment), who stated that he had had an opportunity re cently of seeing the draft forms which Dr Norris proposed to nse, and the regulations outlining the procedure which he proposed to adopt. From the information available it appeared that, unless considerably modified, the new esetem would seriously hamper de partmental operations. The difl cuhty of recruiting at present was very great, and, in view of the large numbers of immigra...

The Great Montamor Case. CHAPTER XX. Suspense. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 26 March 1914

IThe Geat Monmimor By ALCE M. DIEHL, Aluthoress of "The Knave of Hearts,' -CHAPTER XX. Suspense. A veiled woman, finely developed, is black, stood to the left of tile vicar, who gazed at her in mlild as tonislhment.. Netta stared at her, won dering rather than alarmed. Lady Mlontamor's great eyes flashed scorn. She had at once recognised Gwendo len in the unseemnlly inlterrupter who had suddenly steppcd out of the shadow cast by a stone pillar. And Robert drew himself up and looked at the spot in the veil where the eyes of ihe intermeddler should te. H-e was pale, but anll expression o c:lntempt as well as of determllination ,as expressed by every feature of his comely face. He recognised Gwen doleln-but also recognised that she had no right to inlterrupt his wedding; her so doing was, in his opinion, on a par with thile fact lthant she had 1hun: ed himt down, probably by detectives~ in her pay. Indignant, his first instinct was to ptrotect Netta. "After that, the de luge," he thoug...

INDIGESTION, CAN IT BE BANISHED. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 26 March 1914

INDIGESTION, CAN IT BE BANISHED. Now, can it ? Must a woman go on sufloring from headaches, biliousness, flatulenco, pains after eating, Isegour, or any of the other distressing symp toms that arise from faulty action of the stomach or the liver? Most men be made less li: for work, less able to keep pace with their competitors, because in digestion is sapping their energies and clogging their minds? Have men and women to go on enduring these things without hope of recovery? Assuredly not Most cases of acute indigestion are the result of neglect or of indifference. People get into a foolish habit of think ing that they will be better on the mor row, or in a week or two. and am the complaint gets hold and the ooffsrer goes from bad to worse. Food ought to give up its life-sustain. iog elements for every nerve and muscle in your body it ought to replenish the rich, red stream of blood flowing through your veins, and help you to think, act, and to work with the vim of the healthy man.

PRUSSIAN EXECUTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 26 March 1914

PRUSSIAN EXECUTIONS. It is notew rthy that two murderers have recently suffered capital punish ment in Prussia, 'because only some four to eight per cent. of capital sen-, tences are carried out in Germany, the proportion in Great Britain being over 5e per cent. IThe newspapers common ly speak of these German criminals as victims of the axe or block, without much discrimination. By the German law all capital punishments must be carried out by beheading, but it is left to the separate States to choose their own method. In those districts which were annexed by Napdleon I. the guil lotine still prevails. Other regions may use the axe, the sword, or a car ving knife if they please. The Prus sian method is that, the victim sit ting in a chair, he is beheaded by a horizontal sweep of a long sword.

FORTUNES REFUSED. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 26 March 1914

FORTUNES REFUSED. It is said that when it became known that the letters of the great Irish leader, Charles Stewart Parnell, 'vere to be published, offers to pur chase them were received from all over the world, and that one great newspaper proprietor in the United States sent Mrs. Parnell an open cheque, upon -whiclh she smight inscribe her own price. The offer was refused. Robert Browning constantly refused to 'write 'for the magazines and re views.. He only departed from his self-denying ordinance on one occa sion, and that was in aid of charity. In his later days, when Browning so cieties were springing up all over Britain and America, fabulous prices were offered to him even !for a short 'Doem.. He put all these tempting offers aside and "stuck to his text" to his dying day. But this determination to refuse money whenf it is offered is evidently not the attribute of the well-to-do only, for a laborer in Pennsyl'vania has just refused two fortunes amounting to £20,000, which actu...

CHASE AFTER INFANT. WOMAN'S FORGETFULNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 30 March 1914

COHkSE AFTER INFANT. WOMAN'S FORGETFULNESS. An exemplification of woman's forgetfulness was afforded on the Bendigo tramways last week. A young woman was in the waiting room at the tramway office at Oharing Cross. She was carrying an infant, and had placed a satchel containing some money and a railway return ticket to Brokrn Hill on a seat beside her, together with a collapsable go-cart. When a tram car bound for Eaglekawk came along she made a rush for the car, and had proceeded some distance along the tract when she found she had left the go-cart and satchel behind. On the impulse of the moment she handed her child to another passenger, and hoarded an incoming car to regain her property, which she found untouched on the seat at the waiting room. While feeling overjoyed at recovering her pro perty, it dawned on her that her child was missing. Boarding the next outgoing car with go-cart and satchel, she found her friend waiting for her with the infant. In her excitement at recoverin...

!SCHOOL COO?thITTEES.':j VALUE OF THEI.R WORK. From a report received by the Minister of Education (Sr Alex ander Peacock), it would appear that the work accomplished l)y the school committees since their ap pointment, three years ago, has been of the utmost value to the de partment. The efforts of the cornm mittees, it is stated, have aroused the people to a display of interest in the welfare of their schools as surprising as it is gratifying. Since they came into existence, in 1911, they have raised in their districts for school improvements £118.303, This money has been spent in improvements to 822 buildings, 1262 sites, and 1055 fences; in the erection of 446 gates, and 666 play pavilion; in the pur chase of 181 pianos, 120 sewing machines, 830 sets of schlool ap paratus, 852 pictures for the adornment of class-rooms, and 854 libraries ; and in connection with the plainting of 831 trees in school grounds, 1078 picnicsa ; and 188 swimming classes.

STATE LAND REFORMS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 30 March 1914

STATE LAND REFORMS. During the investigation whicu was made by the sub-committee of the first Watt Ministry into the ad ministration of closer settlemeut, many settlers complained that the official system of keeping accounts was so complicated that they could not understand it, and were at a loss to realise exactly what their financial relations with the Closer Settlement Board were. The com mittee in its report to the Cabinet, recommended the adoption of a pass-book system to enable the set tlers to ascertain without difficulty, at any moment, just how they stood. '* The trouble is," said Mr Law son (the Minister of Lands) last week," that the board may have five separate accounts with the sot tiers--(1) The land account; (2) the house account; (3) the grading account; (4) the live stock account; and (b) the advances account under section 4 of the act. The proposal to establish a pass-book system was approved by the Cabinet, and re ferred to a sub-committee of ac countants, consist...

RETAINING THE MOISTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 30 March 1914

RETAINING THE MOISTURE. When it is considered that for the production of llb of dry sub stance, a plant requires 300 to 400 Ibs of water, it is easy to under stand what an important function is played by the moisture in the soil. A field of wheat evaporates sumcient moisture to cover the surface of the ground to a depth of 9 inches. This shows how desir able it is to keep the water of the winter rains from drying off before the crops can utilise it, because the rainfall during the spring and sum mer period of growth is irregular, and often not sufficient to furnish the requisite supply of water to the plants, which, without this dissolv ing element in the soil, are unable to make use of the plant food. Deep stirring of the ebil (that is, breaking up the soil under the sur face furrow without bringing it to the surface), contributes to the im provement of the moisture soil condition, as the water reservoir may be said to be thereby unlarged and more moisture stored up. Any thing that...

INUMURKAH'S "AUSPICIOUS DAY." THE SHIRE PRESIDENT ENTER. S TAINS. The occasion of the opening of the County Court at Numurkah on Tuesdlay was availed of by the Shire President (Cr W A Camp bell), who entertained his Honor Judge Johnston, visiting and local barristers and honorary justices at dinner at the Farmers' Arms Hotel. Mr Glenny was called upon to propose "The County Court," to which he coupled the names of Judge Johnston and the barristers appearing in the court. He said that that day was an auspicioss one in the history of Numurkah, and the residents were highly delighted that the Government had seen fit to establish a County Court here. The occasion was such that the Shire President desired to mark the event, and for that reason had in vited his Honor and visiting bar risaters to luncheon. His Honor replied in humorous vein. He first visited Numurkah 30 years ago, when he appeared in a case in which the agricultural society was concerned in a-dispute over a space allotted ...

JOTTINGS FROM DOOKIE: AN UNEQUALLED HARVEST. LOOKING FORWARD TO THE PICNIC. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 30 March 1914

JOTTINGS FROM DOOKIE: AN UNEQUALLED HARVEST. LOOKING FORWARD TO THE PIONIC. jFrom Oar Own Correspondent]. It would be safe to say that in this district the harvest of 1913-14 has never been equalled. Tblhis may be saying a lot, bue according to the reports of old farmers who have been residing here for a great number of years, the state ment can be set down as correct. Far backin the days when the land had been partly cleared two or three bags per acre were considered a good yield, but when the average comes up to 12 bags per acre, the yield must be considered moro than satisfactory. This was the output of last year's harvest, but to work the matter out a little over eight bags. Artifioial manures probably have had a big say in this respect. Favorably wea ther conditions also had a marked effeot of bringing last year's average up to what it was. Periodical rainfalls were another factor which assisted greatly. This district could be classed as one which is a seed-wheat cntre. A groat...

SETTLERS AIND CLAUSE 69. "ONLY PAWNS IN THE GAME." At the A.N.A. conference at Wangaratta an attack on clause 69, the compulsory residence condition of the Closer Settlement Act, was made by the Glen Huntly branch. Mr E J L Bremner moved, " That the restricted freehold title pre. judicially affects the policy of im migration, and the board shbuld impress on the Government that Victoria's terms of land settlement should be at least equally as liberal, and the title as unrestricted, as those offered by Canada." He said the restricted title was the greatest hindrance to land settlement. The treatment metered out to closer settlers was selfish and inhuman, and affected their credit with busi ness and financial institutions. Canada offered land to settlers practically free and unrestricted. A Voice: They have to in order to get settlers. Mr R B Ramage (Glen Huntly), in seconding the mntion, quoted liberally from official and other documents. Mr G H Wise (director) said the object of the ...
