MILITARY ATTITUDE PROTECTION OF CITIZENS [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 5 February 1914
MITARY ATTITUDE PROTECTION OP CITIZENS The. Kaiser last night summoned his new War Minister, General von Falken hayn, and the Chief- of the Imperial Military Cabinet, General Baron von Lynckner, to Donaueschingen,. where his Majesty Is stayi ngwith his friend Prince Max Egon zu Furstenberg (says the Berlin correspondent of the "Daily Mail," December 2). To-day the inci dents at Zabern, in Lower Alsace, were the subject of an exhaustive discus- i sion between the Kaiser and his mill tary chiefs. The incidents at Zabern originated in a speech made by a twenty-year-old i subaltern, Lieutenant von Forstner, to 1 his men. He advised them to stab any i "wackes" (meaning rowdy) who at- I tacked them. The populace interpreted "wackes" as meaning. Alsatian and made angry demonstrations against the 1 military, who on Friday took control of the town for twenty-four hours. The incidents have now become an affair of national magnitude. The Reichstag to-day devoted most of its attention to Zabern...
The Heart of a Girl (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER VII. (Continued). [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 5 February 1914
By HENRY FARMER Author of "The Money-lender," "12a Quiltry Street," "Bondage," etc. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER VII. (Continued). Hilary would understand, would haye been told why she had not stayed, why she was not present at the crucial mo ment of his ordeal to flash him a mes sage of love and faith. with her eyes. He would understand-but why, oh, God, why had fate ordered things so cruelly ? She moved again-hesitated. Sha was craving again for the solitude of her own room. Yet her sense of the fit ness and the appropriateness of thingst was asserting itself. It had, been brought home to her that specialised skill had saved her mother's life, and that Michael Thorne had provided it. A door opened, and as Beryl came out on the landing Queenie heard he> father's voice. He was saying - some thing about Voile's and a flood of sen sitive color swept her face She real ised that he was playing his old trick, making cadging appeals to Thorne for, some benefit on her behalf.

LONDON PROBLEM [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 5 February 1914
LONDON PROBLEM No confirmation of the. report re ferred to at a meeting of the London County Council--that a great scheme is in preparation for the amalgamatiof of all the electric supply companies in London-could be obtained by a-"Daily News" representative who, on Novem ber 26, made inquries at the County of London Electric Supply Company. The-Bill which the company is pro moting for postponing the date at which the London County Council may purchase the electric companies has, our represntative was informed, noth ing to do with the question of ama gamation.

The total capital-of the-companies is about four-. •ten millions, that of the local autho rities about six and a half millions. In addition the borough councils are con s?tantly increasing the capital ...
NEW IMPRESSION [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 5 February 1914
NEW IMPRESSION i Some interesting impressions by a. Canadian visiting England are given ii the "Morning Poft.* My first impressions of England Mere gained through a car window, he writes. Now, I knew all about the smallness of the fields, their fresh green, the hedges, the softly rounded trees; we Britons from overseas are trained to expect these, and the Eng lish countryside Is astonishingly fa miliar to us at the first glance. But one thing did give me a start- certain very large fields, brown, and bare, ready, I suppose, for their win ter 4Snow-blanket.: What struck me was partly their great size, but more thl exquisite neatness and finish with which they had been ploughed and harrowed. Mine is a country of 'hun dred-acre farms, with fields neither so large as your larger nor so small as, your smaller fields, and of a husband ry limited not so much by deficiency of knowledge as by the lack of' hands.. But my first real start came south of the Thames, when my train was bearing me ...
