The Premier's Policy Speech. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 19 November 1914
The Premier's Policy Speech. The Premier's speech at (Jreswick should rally the Liberal forces, which the excitement caused by the declaration of war disorganised. Unhappily there is little reason to predict an immediate end of the struggle, but aB a community we are in a saner mood than we were, have learned that, though great battles are in progress and our civilisation is at stake, the day's work must be done that the ''billy may boil" and the children may be fed. To electors realising the new conditions brought about by war and drought, Sir Alexander Pea cock made rousing appeal. Never was it eo vitally important as now that the very most should be made of our national resources, and as Parliament must play a big part in the making or marring of Victoria, all that goes to the securing of satisfactory representation concerns us closely. Thus the Redistribution of Seats, so far from being an ab stract issue about which clever lads may talk in debating societies, is a ; practiejil ...

SOUTH GPIPSLAND SPORTS ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 19 November 1914
SOUTH GPIPSLAND SPORTS ASSOCIATION. Th's association, which is destined to govern sports meetings in this province for many years to come, is uow tirmly established. • Utiles have been drawn up and adopted, and it now remains for sports committees to recognise the association in every way. ' When ' issuing programmes, the words "under the auspices of the South Gippsland Sports Association" is a guarantee of good faith on the part of the committee, and an indica tion that the public may have every confidence lu the meeting. Breaking away from the League affords protection to the numerous local peds., who can now enter .for sports with every confidence. Not that anything wrong -was. meant by the League liandicappcr, but local knowledge was lacking. District runners, who perhaps have not the time to so thoroughly train', as do professionals, .will henceforth meet with encouragement, and get what all sports look for—"a' fair .deal."

WHY ANIMALS ARE BUILT AS THEY ARE. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 19 November 1914
WHY ANIMALS ARE BUILT AS THEY ARE. When you pull on a pair of kid gloves, h;i.s it ever occurred to von to vender why the skin of a you. g gout should m,ike ll c most peneel of 1'-uitci coverings, ligiit, warm, pliable and, i.bove all, tough? The thins is simple enough if you ( mie io consider the history of the goat tribe. They were always the pariahs of the herb-eating creatures, lining neither as .swift as the ante lopes, nor as powerful as the buffalo, they wore driven out of th&lt;- rich low lands by the carnivores, and forced to ily iiuo tin; thickeis which coat i';i" mountainsides below the snow line. There they found food and shel ter. Hut browsing ;!11!o11 g such stilt and close-set shrubs, any thin-skin ned animal would soon become one mass of sores and wounds. So gra dually the skin of the goat toughened until ilie crea iire was able to force ;i.- way through unyielding scrub v. ithout injury either to coat or skin. That is why goatskin makes such per o et leather...

In the time of peace (says "The Queen") it is difficult to realise that one's country is prepared for war. and there are people who are fond of de claring that England is not fully equipped in all the branches of her Army and Navy. The awful sudden ness with which this war has de scended upon us has put to the test all the services of the country, and they have not been found wanting. Throughout the whole day on August 4 there was one continuous stream of men and women passing through the portals of the Wat- Ofliee and of the Admiralty. Crowds stood about. 011 the pavement. in the hope of seeing and recognising any of the .Ministers, and many of the officials at . both oMice.s had not been to bed all night, nor had had time to get any food in the day.
