PUCCFNI INSPIRED BY BARGES SIgnor Glacomo Puccini, the famous Italian composer, who has been pay ing a lightning visit to London, went .last night to a rehearsal of "The Dar ling of the Gods," which Sir Herbert Tree Is reviving at His Majesty's Thea tre, for the composer is in search of a subjoct for a new opera. "The chief reason for my presence in London to-day," he said to a "Daily Express" representative. "Is pressure of private business. But, at the same time, whenever I come to London I am always glad of the opportunity to visit the theatres, for I am a great admirer of the English stage, and so it comes that I have made up my mind to see 'The Darling of the Gods,' in the hope that . it might prove to be a suitablo subject for an opera. I shall do my best to visit a rehearsal this evening, for I leave England for Italy at an oarly date. ' ?

(TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 20 March 1914
(TO TUB EDITOR.) SIB,-By the contiuuous writing I of " Horse Owner" one would think that motor drivers had committed a great crime because a horse takes a bit of a fright at the sight of a motor (especially at the .two on one, perhaps it resembles a moving circus), but Burely people can please themselves \ what and how they ride ; it's a free \ country. Horse owners should /teach | their horses to remain calm at the | sight of a " pip pip." Another thing i " Horse Owner" should note is that i horses are secondary consideration! now, the motor / now taking the pjace ; of them (too true). Another thing he cotqphins of " Tearing through the' Streets." . The only tearing done was : when they fell (too true again)1 1 About his not feeling inclined to read , " Punoh," it's a wonder he took the I bother to read Judge Box's views. Anyway to settle this argument we 'Ohaltanga " Horse Owner" and his friend the shooter on thu nag to a race along Fraser street. "Pakeha" bandicappor. Our purfprn...

Tho fi'.'st racing stable that deceased become connected with was the local stablo owned by Messrs Pitcher and Son, who had St Heliers, j.V., Lady Go-lightly, and others.

A VALUABLE HOUSEHOLD REMEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 20 March 1914
A VALUABLE HOUSEHOLD REMEDY. One of the most valuable household remedies is mustard. This condiment is roost prompt in its action as a rube facient or skin reddcncr. It is also a very active emetic when stirred into a cup- of warm water-a teasjjoonful heaped up to a small cupful. Its harmlessness makes it safe to repeat in a few minutes if necessary. It is thus very useful in cases of poisoning or indigestion accompanied by severe pains or cramps. But it is in the shape of an old-fashioned mustard plaster that it finds its greatest field for good. There are two ways of preparing a' mustard plaster. - Where the effect is desired quickly it should be made cf pure mustard and hot water without any flour or meal, and covered with a thin piece of old muslin, laid next to the skin. It will always give timely notice of necessity for removal, as :t begins to bite at once. As soon -as the smarting bccomes uncomfortable, and the skin very red, it may be changed to some other part. Made strong...
MOTOR CYCLES AND HORSES. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 20 March 1914
MOTOR CYCLES AND HORSES. (TO THE EDITOR.) Sir,-When "Horse Own.-r" cm plains of the speed of motorists frightening horses, he evidently w.inis the. world to cease progressing for a while, for fear of getting nhead of him and hiB horse. If motorists are to travel at the speed of horses, they might as well sell their motors and motor-cycles and buy horses. With all due respect for the horse, anyone can aee that the motor is taking his place as the servant of man. Most horses are now accustomed to motors and motor-cycles, and if "Horse Owner" were to manage his horse properly, he could speedily break him in, and I wish him every success in his efforts. Yours etc. FAIR PLAY".
TO CURE A HEADACHE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 20 March 1914
TO CUKE A HEADACHE. Dyspeptic or bilious hcadache is very common, it is the headache which is most easily traceable to its cause and most readily avoided without medicine. Every one who has ever suffered from it knows the cause and remedy. It is the old story of appetite, indul gence, and punishment. If you wish to know my advice as to i-uring- a bilious headache, I say don't get it. Eat such food as agrees with you; be temperate in all things, and. be as regular as clock work in your habits. In the case of young people this headache can always be traced to some error in diet-as rich food in immoderate quantity, eating at unreasonable or unusual hours, drink ing wine or beer, etc., etc.-and it readily gives way to an emetic and sleep. Almost any emetic will do. In the case of elderly persons, however, the headaches, although less acute, are apt to be more tedious and more ex hausting-. Rest in bed, cold applica tions to the head, and some purgative medicine taken so as to operate in...
CORRESPONDENCE. SITE FOR NEW OVAL. (TO THE EDITOR). [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 20 March 1914
CORRESPONDENCE' SITE FOR NEW OVAL. (TO TUB EDITOR). SlB,-I am glad the towns people and ratepayers are at last waking up to the long felt want of a central sports ground. In the past we have had too many reserves and sport grounds, there is one of a kind in every ward and like Paddy's horse, " none of them nogood." What's wanted is one central ground kept well in order. As an old sport, I have long advocated the " Island" as a place central, beautiful for the purpose, and easily approached I am surprised that some of the councillors for our North Ward should suggest the show grounds, and aho that bleak, windy and barren spot the other Bide of the station duck pond. This would be an injustice to North Clunes ratepayers as well as prove an utter failure. If those council lors were older, or knew a little more about old sports gatherings of some thirty years ago, when we tried the Bhow grounds, they ' would remember our efforts proved a veritable frost, and in hope of improving things ...
CHAPTER XLX. "I FORBID THIS MARRIAGE." [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 20 March 1914
CHAPTER XIX. "I FORBID THIS MARRIAGE." iJady Montamor was dally rejuven ating as she took an active part In the vonncr lives of her son and the Innocent, charminc girl who was so soon to be his wife. There was a sympathetic affection between the excitable, energetic old lady, who never admitted that there could ho obstacles to anything she willed or wished, and the tranquil, saddonod Notta. "Notta is so naturally high-class, so tactful ; she always instinctivoly knows what she ought to do, and docs it," the old lady told her son. "You should have scon her at Ame lie's. Not a bit put out by tho quantities of lovely things-not staring, goggle-eyed, as I havo soon duchess's daughters staro when they wero taken to be fitted for their com ing-out things, but just having tho right taste-liking what I liked be fore she could possibly havo guessed it-oh, and all that sort of thing.

The Great Montamor Case. By ALICE M. DIEHL, Authoress of "Tho Knave of Hoarte,' CHAPTER XVIII. THE GAUNTLET IS CAST. It was a sultry summer day ; the sun poured down on the pavomonts with merciless power. Tho grass In the parks was visibly browning. The busy thoroughfares were crowded in tho shade-empty but for a few pedestrians where the sunshine blis tered and frizzled. Gwendolen llalldarc sat at her, writing-table in her shady drawing room, shady because of wetted tat ties and outside blinds. Lilies and whito sweet peas, with ferns, were in the bowls aud vases. A little fountain fed witli rose-water played in the shaded balcony-a now idea of hers. Its trickling suggested cool ness, just as in the dining-room be low the big lumps of ice among ferns not only suggested cold, but tem pered tho heat. That day everything connected with Lord Montamor seemed to her clear as the purost crystal. She was miserable. An active fight was at work within her between the part of her naturo which ...
DARING OPERATION KNIFE FOR TUBERCULOSIS [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 20 March 1914
DARING OPERATION KNIFE FOR TUBERCULOSIS Tremendous strides have been made of lato years In the treatment of tuber culosis (says "Lloyd's Weekly News" of January 18), and one of the greatest appears to have been due to the sur geons at Guy's Hospital, who, greatly daring, are declared to have made a remarkable advance in the treatment of certain forms of disease. Recent researches have led doctors to suppose that many conditions of chronic ill-health, such as nervous debility, rheumatism, and other disorders, are duo to poisoning set up by unhealthy conditions of the large intestine, and it has even been suggested that the lowering of vitality resulting from such poisoning is favorable to the develop ment of cancer and tuberculosis. It was felt .that If the large intestine could be safely removed the result would be a tendency to healthy longe vity in the individual: but surgeons were deterred from the obvious opera tion by a knowledge of other functions performed by this part of the...
STRAIN ON THE NAVY POSITION DISCUSSED. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 20 March 1914
STRAIN ON THE NAVY POSITION DISCUSSED. (By Rcar-Admlral A. T. Mahan, In "Tho Dally Mall.") The naval position of Groat Britain Is a composite of two distinct factors. These aro the general international situation. In so far as Great Britain way be therein Involved by her inter ests or her dangers, and the amount of naval force disposable to secure those interests and to meet those dan gers. These two things represent the defensive and offensive elements of a military situation. At the present moment tho mere security of tho British Islands Is con ceived to bo so far Imperilled that It has prompted a radical change in the distribution of tho British Navy, the leading feature of which is tho con centration around tho islands them selves of a very largo majority of the battleship force. Subordinate to this, but directly related to it, has been the withdrawal-the drawing back-of the Mediterranean Fleet from Malta to Gibraltar as its dcflnito headquarters. Students of military history wi...

COLLECTING VOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 24 March 1914
COLLECTING VOTES. At an early stage of the work on the State electoral canvass it was poin ted out to the eleptoral officers chat if the polioe wore their uniforms in going from house to liouBe, and did not dis guise themselves in plain clothes, they must expect a great deal of diiHculty in inducing householders in certain parts of Melbourne suburbs to open the doors to them. One inspector has submitted to Mr J, Molly, the chief eleotoyai oifier, a report on his own experience. Ho approaohed a building in a mean suburban street, he states, and found that it purported to be a shop, for it had several jars of decomposed confectionary in its windQW.
