HISTORIC TOWN [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 28 March 1914

HISTORIC TOWN , Of the three big parish churches which will shortly become tho cathe drals of the three new dioceses,..the most Interesting is St. James's, Bury St. Edmunds. The town has asso ciations which make It worthy of being the cathedral city of a diocese. Parliament was held In tho town In 1272, 1296, and'1446, and sovereigns were entertained thoro in former ages in lavish manner. The Abbey, which Canute founded in 1020, became one of the richest and most Important In ' mediaeval times, with an enormous income. The "now" cathedral church dates from tho fif teenth century, but the tower, which ( serves as a sort of campanile, Is a relic of Norman England, and Is said to be the original work of Abbot An- I selm, who was a nephew of tho ' famous archbishop. . The new see will bo known as St. Edmundsbury and Ipswich, a not unplcturesque de- j Blgnation, recalling the combination of i St. Andrews and Edinburgh. J

Wadcferburn Rases. A GREAT SUCJESS. GOOD ENTRIES AND EXCITING FINISHES. RECORD ENTRIES. Beautiful weather greeted the committer of the Wedderburn Racing Club on Wednesday, when their annual meeting was held. Under the circumstances a good day was assured.

NEW SURGERY ASTONISHING RESULTS CLAIMED [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 28 March 1914

NEW SURGERY ASTONISHING ItlCSUI.TS CLAIMED The excitement created among doctors by the radium treatment of cancer (says the "Central News") will probab ly bo overshadowed at an early date by the announcement to the medical profession of an astonishing operation now being performed at Guy's Hospital, which in the near future Is bound to re volutionise the whole practice of opera tive surgery. The operation so far has been ap plied to eases of certain forms of tu berculosis, and so successful has it proved that it has now been accepted at Guy's as the correct treatment for this disease. The principle of the treatment, the "Central News" was informed by an eminent surgeon, is the removal of the cause of the disease. For long it has been recognised that the excessive mul tiplication of noxious bacteria in tho larger intestine and the inability of the body to eliminate them was tho pre disposing cause of many diseases. The Metchnikoff sour milk treatment, which purported to purify this o...

Decentralisation. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 28 March 1914

Decentralisation. To thcs3 who wntc'.i affairs in Vic toria the present uitlook indicates serious trouble ahead. Not since the period of the great land boom of twenty five years ago has there been such a congestion cf the life of the State at the centre. Notwithstanding all the Government has been attempting to do for the country districts the people are steadily leaving rural forcity industries. The extensive irrigation schemes which were to do so much are not all they have been cri c'ted up to be, and the money laid out on them is not now worth twenty shillings in the pound. All this seems quite natural when one reflects on the manner in which the whole State is run by and for the benefit of the people of Melbourne. Half of the population of the State is grouped round the meeting place of Parliament, and personal influence is still an important factor in our political life. The man on the spot always has an advantage over the man who is far away. This fact, together with the in di...

PICTURE FILM INDUSTRY i -— \ UNITED STATES LEADS. I The United States Js the greatest film-producing country in the world (writes L.R., in "The Westminster Ga zette"). It is no exaggeration to say that over 50 per cent, of the world's productions have their origin there. Durlngthe first nine months of last year the country exported 29,000,000 feet of film, more than three-quarters of which came to Great Britain. The kinemato grapli industry In America must, how ever, be somewhat hampered by the extraordinary censorship conditions prevailing, which are in the hands of no fewer than forty-eight separate and distinct jurisdictions. Though America is responsible for most of the film-producing, Great Bri tain is easily first in the matter Of dis tribution,* quite 80 per cent, of the world's pictures being "released" here. This means employment for many thousands of Britons in offices, theatres and show-rooms, and is a striking ex ample of the advantage of freetrade. On Wednesday evening ...
